Set in the original region of Arciel, Legends Rising is a route-inspired, but not strictly route-based, Pokemon roleplay. Pick a faction, pick a class, and strike out into the wild to take on the League, master Contest coordination, research the mysteries of Pokemon and Arciel, and much, much more. Will you be a classic trainer? A criminal? A farmer? Choose your destiny on Legends Rising.
[Fin] Paper cuts with Granny Clementine Lynn [Job/Mail Delivery/Birch City] - Gabe and Granny Clementine are off delivering mail. What should have been a pretty standard job has become rather hairy with some unruly Pokemon on their tail.
[Fin] A Silent Night with Cinzia Pachini [Social/Ball/Birch City] - Gabe meets a somewhat quiet psychic at the Gala.
[Fin] Somewhere with Arietta Ostinato / [Social/Ball/ Birch City] - While dressed up and disguised, Gabe and Ara meet again. They start out having a flirty good time dancing across the Halloween Gala dance floor, but it's ruined when they realize it's each other whom they are falling for all over again.
[Fin] Delightfully Frightful with Riley Connor [Social/Maze/Birch City] - Gabe meets a person dressed as Meloetta at the Gala, and they have some fun in the Halloween maze.
[Fin] Paper Faces with Senara Spargo [Social/Ball/Birch City] - Gabe meets a seemingly nice person dressed as Blissey at the Gala only to find she's a thief trying to pilfer his wallet. He threatens her and gets some information on her to meet later.
The Road That Leads Us with Jules Marjoleine-Innova [Social/Route 1] - Headed home after the Gala, Gabe is stopped by a new trainer hoping to piggy back on to the next town. Gabe is fine with this so long as Jules proves to be interesting.
[Fin] Chipped Shards with Senara Spargo [Social/Pine Town] - Gabe takes the information he learned about Senara from the Gala and comes to find her in Pine. He has a proposition: they're going to rob a bank in Plum together.
[Fin] Rolling on Gravel with Koray Starr [Social/Pine Town] - Gabe meets up with Koray from the Gala, and they have a sit down meal at Koray's family restaurant and then go shopping. It started out a little awkward but turned out alright.
[Fin] Under the Limelight with Arietta Ostinato / [Social/Bass City] - Gabe shows up at Arietta's dance studio after they last spoke at the Gala. He's just there to dance, or so he keeps telling himself, but it's hard when his feelings for Ara keep resurfacing.
Let's Play Cops and Robbers with Michael Kempler [Social/Bass City] - Michael catches Gabe stealing and uses it as an excuse to finally force him to talk to him. Gabe finds it way too easy to fall back into old habits including messing with a graveyard.
[Incomplete] Larger than Life with Amell Vogel [Journey/Route 1] - Amell has started his Pokemon journey, and Gabe happens to be in the area right in time to meet him after. They talk and head up Route 1.
[Fin] A Product of Society with Arietta Ostinato / [Social/Cedar Town] - Gabe happens to catch Ara in a photoshoot and surprises her a bit. They talk, and things turn messy. Ara decides that Gabe shouldn't come to the dance studio any longer since it's causing messy feelings.
[Fin] Ride of Your Life with Senara Spargo / [Social/Route 2] - Gabe has Senara practice flying on the back of his Charizard in order to get over to Plum. Of course they could use the ferry, but this way is more fun. Of course things don't go as planned.
[Fin] By the Light of Your Eye with Senara Spargo / Amell Vogel / [Social/Bass City] - Senara has dug up information on Gabe and tracks him all the way to his shared house with Amell. She immediately passes out when her aura powers activate in full for the first time, and Gabe just happens to be the human torch. They head over to the clinic and then back again to get Senara's belongings- only for Amell to be home by then.
[Fin] Burning Out [These Impurities] with Arietta Ostinato / [Social/Route 5] - Gabe and Ara happen to unfortunately be on the same ferry ride over to Ivy Town, and they would most certainly have ignored one another had Lizbeth not lost her damn mind on seeing her. Hurt and hateful, Liz attacks Ara.
[Fin] Coffee Shop Blues with Adelaide Gladstone [Social/Bass City] - Gabe is dealing with depression on a couch, and this fidgety barista just so happens to also be a girl he danced with. Nothing too serious happens, but she does manage to make an impression on him.
Snowfall with Amyrie Baldrick [Journey/Route 7] - Gabe is traversing Route 1 after doing some Swarm hunting (among other things) and runs into a girl and her unruly Weavile.
[Fin] The Breeze Under My Wings with Senara Spargo / [Social/Journey/Route 3] - Gabe and Senara ride Reptar over to Plum. Of course it's not that simple, but they have a few heart to heart moments as Gabe realizes he can be an emotionally supportive person when he really wants to be.
Sarah Alim - Mother - "She scares me... frequently." - Sarah and Gabe have a somewhat complicated relationship. He chose to go with his mother rather than his father years ago solely because she had never raised a hand to him or his siblings the way their father had. However, she was by nature a very victim-centric type of person and tended to shift the blame onto others at all costs. After her hospitalization, their relationship seemed to improve at least somewhat in many ways, but it's still rather messy.
Calvin Kempler - Father - "I hate him." - Gabe harbors a lot of deep-seeded aggression towards his father. He would just as well start a fight for no reason than be around him. Meanwhile, Calvin has been trying very hard to redeem himself regarding all that happened, and Gabe wants absolutely none of that shit.
Rae Kempler - Sister - "It's Complicated." - Gabe has a lot of complicated feelings towards his sister and has been avoiding her and the rest of the family for years now. At least part of his avoidance and aggression comes from her siding with / staying with their father. Otherwise, Gabe was the actual asshole brother in the equation and actually knows this pretty well.
Michael Kempler - Brother - "It's Complicated." - Gabe and Michael were thick as thieves as children, and despite his supposed avoidance of and aggression towards his brother, Gabe can't help but fall into a certain mannerism around Michael. He just wants to be a little kid and do stupid stuff again.
Arietta Ostinato - Ex - "I sometimes wish I'd never met her." - Gabe fell in love with Arietta when he was just fifteen years old, and he was so obsessed with her that he wanted to run away with her and start over. Their break up years ago caused him a lot of psychological hardship, and for years he didn't interact with her. More recently, he confronted her, had a break down, kind of maybe fell in love with her again, and had his feelings shattered all over again. He has since shed a lot of his previous feelings in favor of being more independent again. It's still kind of messy when she bumps into his life now and again, and he has to wonder why the universe is constantly trying to stress him out.
Amell Vogel - Housemate - " I have a lot of feelings regarding this man." Gabe met Amell when he was eighteen almost ninteen. He had just come off the heels of a very nasty situation, and Amell offered him a place to stay, food to eat, and a lot of other nice things. Gabe sometimes refers to Amell as his sugar daddy despite the fact that they've never been together and Amell is so far in the closet he doesn't even understand himself. Gabe is kind of gay for his physique and general knuckle-headed nature.
Adelaide Gladstone - Acquaintance - "Weird Barista...." - Gabe met Addy once at the Halloween Gala and right after he had a bad confrontation with Ara. He doesn't know much about her aside from the fact that she tries to help by offering free stuff.
Koray Starr - Acquaintance - "Kind of don't care about him anymore." - Gabe met Koray at the Gala and subsequently went on a "date" with him in Pine Town. It was a little awkward, but otherwise it went well. Recently, Gabe has realized/learned that Koray is one of Ari's exes and has a history with her as well. The fact they share a love of dance and several other things now makes him believe Ari was specifically choosing or influencing people to be a certain way. He yelled at and beat up Koray, so it's questionable if their friendship will ever be the same.
Senara Spargo - Friend - "What a weirdo, look at this loser." - Senara tried to steal from Gabe at the Gala and got caught. Since then, Gabe has wrapped her up in his desire to rob a bank in Plum and wrapped him up in his social issues as well. They were at once simply acquaintances and rather antagonistic and have somehow managed to come into actual friendship. In the last few threads, he's managed to wrap her up in his bullshit regarding Arietta and had several things go down in the process. It's only made his friendship with her stronger as far as he cares.
Shea Briar Rose - A Huge Ass Mood - "I want to hang with them more" - Gabe met Shea on New Years. Finding out that they were an ex of Ara's, Gabe immediately took a liking to them, and after talking a while, watching fire works together, and hooking up, he's left with some pretty positive feelings regarding them. At the very least, they're fun to be around and can relate to and put up with his Ara-related issues in a manner that is good enough.
Wrenova Raven - Acquaintance - "They seem to be hiding something more. We'll see if it's interesting or not."
Gabe will not eat meat when drinking alcohol because he is terrified of puking it back up and being in digestive pain.
He loves costumes and dressing up for Halloween but isn't very interested in doing so outside of Halloween.
He started learning different types of dances when he met Ara, and that was sort of their thing for a long time. He has since stopped dancing all together because it brings back the memories and the stress.
By his own beliefs, the worst someone could do to Gabe is steal from him. He has been known to threaten others mercilessly for stealing from him.
Adelaide Gladstone - Acquaintance - "She's really strange and anxious." Juni met Adelaide while at a coffee shop and found it very hard to connect with her. Whoops.
Derby Vulcan - Friend / Roommate - "I really like being around her." Derby is a good enough friend that Juni was cool with sharing a house with her. They maintain a relatively chill friendship, and Juni enjoys having Derby's little brother come over from time to time for them both to spoil.
[Fin] We'll Never Be Royals with Gaki Amabie [Social/Ball/Birch City] - Sid and Gaki go to the Halloween Gala together. Hilarity ensues as Sid tries to find the absolute best dance partner ever for Gaki to practice with. They later take pictures and have an overall good time.
[Fin] Take Flight with Michael Kempler [Social/Maze/Birch City] - Sid tackles the Halloween maze with a person dressed as a Swellow. Sid completed it, but the same could not be said for poor Sir Swellow. Followed up in After Party
[Fin] Not All Who Wander Are Lost with Sage Harper [Journey/Social/Route 1] - Sid travels along Route 1 and comes across a bard headed towards Bass City. They weren't exactly headed for Bass themselves but decide to go along for the ride.
My Lips Upon The Breeze with Soph Abelen [Journey/Social/Route 7] - Sid is headed back along the correct path to Fuji Town now and runs across a young maiden and a dragon! What LARP adventures shall they have!
[Fin] Let It Go with Koray Starr [Social/Birch City Ice Skating Rink] - Sid is doing a cosplay photo shoot as Elisa from Frozen and runs across a skater who happens to show interest in cosplay. Overall a little awkward but not the worst encounter they've ever had.
[Fin] Just Simple Games [Job/Fuji Town/Home] - Sid assisted Haku, a friend, in some game development testing.
Beautiful Birch with Freya Callum [Job/Birch City Gardens] - Sid wants to learn some farming techniques before spring hits, and where better to do that then at a garden?
[Fin] 2020 Pixels with Riley Connor [Social/Birch City] - Sid is taking some time and Christmas/New Years money to shop for new cosplay clothing, makeup, and accessories. While window shopping, they happen to meet Riley who is interested in the same expensive makeup kit they are.
Gaki Amabie - Cousin - "She's baby" - To Sid, Gaki is the little sister they never had. Sid was only ten when Gaki was moved into their house under stressful circumstances, and since then, they have come to terms with one another's habits and mannerisms. Sid value's Gaki's companionship and friendship as well as sense of family that they didn't quite have up to that point. They don't necessarily see anything wrong with her mannerisms but does tend to accommodate and curate them when in public.
Freya Callum - Acquaintance - "She is very knowledgable about plants."
Koray Starr - Acquaintance - "A strange person, but he has spirit." Sid met Koray while out at a ice skating photo shoot and had a kind of strange interaction with him overall. Still, they sort of see him as a closet otaku just struggling to get by and if that ain't a mood they don't know what is.
Sid uses the Japanese phrase "etto" (Uhm) when stressed out or otherwise emotionally compromised. They also used to use watakushi to describe themselves but have since started using watashi in Kantonian.
They are a fan of bunnies and bunny paraphernalia. This is most likely due to Sailor Moon.
Growing up in Saffron City, Kanto, they were used to psychics constantly being around and regarded Sabrina highly for her skills and competencies.
[Fin] Dog Days Are Over with Arietta Ostinato [Social/Journey/Route 3] - Elise and Arietta are headed over to Plum to get ready for a performance / concert. They take the ferry and have a good time. It is followed by [Fin] Without a Shadow of a Doubt with Arietta Ostinato , Gabe Alim , and Senara Spargo where while they are checking in at a hotel, they run into Gabe and Senara. The fighting that ensues leads Elise to realize she hasn't known what has been going on with Ari regarding this. Elise and Ari leave, but Elise follows up with Arietta Ostinato in [Fin] Don't Look Back to hear all of what has been going on with Ari. She implores no more secrets.
Scarlett Bell - Older Sister - "....... " - Scarlett tormented Elise growing up and has a somewhat awkward relationship with her own as a result. Recently, Scarlett got engaged while Elise got broken up with... which complicates a lot of feelings.
Adelaide Gladstone - Acquaintance! - Elise met Adel at a coffee shop and liked her well enough.
Elliot Sunderland - Acquaintance! - "He's very nice" - Elise met Elliot out on Route 2 while she was training for an up and coming contest.
Sable Phoenix - Vague Crush - "I...." Elise is hoping her feelings towards Sable, brought on by the speed dating event, aren't just because of rebounding from breaking up with Tony. They kissed briefly at the speed dating event, and ever since then, Elise has had some rather intense feelings towards Sable.
