Tell us a little about yourself. How would you describe yourself?
Oh gosh, only a little? Like, how can I possibly summarize everything about me in such a limited capacity. How about we just have the first episode be all about who I am and then a second episode for-- What? Oh, right, uhm... I'm a traveler at heart. Ever since I was little, my father and I moved all around Kalos. Work took him to some crazy places and, you know, since I was with him I had'a go, too!
Mom left when I was just a baby. Dad never told me why, but I don't really care. Why waste my energy on someone who didn't want me, ya'know?
Why are you interested in the class you've chosen?
Eh? Oh, right. A class. Yeah, Explorin' is cool, isn't it? Seeing the world. Wind at your back. Got a lot of that from my dad, I guess... Ah... Yeah... Uhm, can we go back to talking about my personality? Or, like, the next question? Yeah. Next question!
Why are you interested in training in Arciel? Why not another region?
Er... Here? Like here here? No reason! I mean, like, my dad talked about this place a lot so I thought it'd be a good thing to do. Like, in his honor. ... Not like he's dead or anything! I mean, I haven't seen him in a while, but... Who writes these questions anyway?
What do you consider your best attributes? They can be physical, mental, social, or anything else.
Now that's a great question!~ As you call obviously tell, I inherited my dad's good looks and his charisma. I think I can make friends with just about anyone! Well, anyone who doesn't get on my nerves, but you wouldn't get on my nerves, right? ... It was a joke! C'mon, don't take everything so seriously! Anyways, yeah, I totally have a great sense of humor, as you can tell.
Oh, and let me tell you about the time I won the little league basketball championship. Oh, or! How about how we talk about my time in the Ace Trainer Academy? My grades were--
What do you consider your worst attributes? Be honest, now!
What kind of question is that? Are you tying to imply something about me isn't 100% perfect? Pretty rude, don't you think? Next question.
(Arrogance is obvious in everything she does. In most cases, she's not shy about claiming her greatness to other people's faces, but on the rare occasion she'll be more subtle about her "clear superiority." In a similar vein, she's rather stubborn and is prone to fixating on a particular passion, whether it's healthy for her or not.)
What was your childhood like? How was school?
Oh, school was school. Dad traveled a lot so I didn't stay anywhere for too long. I think my longest stay at a school was the ATA, when I was 16. Stayed there for about two years before I decided to pursue more practical things. Like traveling out here and giving you the honor of having me on air!
How is your relationship with your family?
My dad is all I have. Mom bailed shortly after I was born and I have no intentions of meeting her. But me and dad? We did everything together. Erm... Well, as much as we could. He worked a lot. And really strange hours. So... Maybe not as much time as I would have liked, but we were still really close.
What was that? Oh. What do I mean by "were"?
Mmm... Well, you know I guess he got caught up in work. I haven't seen him for a few years now. B-But we totally write letters to each other! Seriously! ... What's with that skeptical look again?
What do you like to do for fun?
I think I'm the sort who finds fun in everything I do. But if I really want to just cut loose and have fun, nothing beats hitting the local club! And not just for the drinks, if you know what I mean!~ Oh, oh, and I love meeting new people. Gettin' exposed to all sorts of personalities and ideas -- and of course exposing them to all of my great ideas.
What are your feelings on romance?
Ahh... Love is for the blind. Don't get me wrong, fits of passion are A-maze-ing, but, like, the whole relationship thing? Too many strings and asterisks attached. I know, I know. "You just haven't met the right person." Bleh. I hear that all the time. It's not like I don't have feelings for other people, but, like, an entire relationship? I don't have even a tiny bit of interest in having someone permanently attached to my hip.
What are your goals for the future? Short-term and long-term.
Hmmm... I guess I haven't sat down and thought about my life like that. Day-to-day, I just like to live the best life possible. Raise the best team of Pokemon, better myself as a person, you know, stuff like that!
...Oh, right. Long term stuff. Well... I guess I'd like to see my dad. But it's not like I'm going out of my way to find him, or anything. Like I said, we're totally still in contact.
If you could be a Pokemon, what species or typing would you choose and why?
I think only one Pokemon can truly capture my grace and strength: Stunfisk.
Hehe. See, I told you I have a good sense of humor! My real answer is Rapidash. Powerful, graceful, and illusive to all but the truly worthy. Don't you think I kinda look like one, too? ... which kind? What do you mean? There's more than one Rapidash? The fiery one, of course.
What do Pokemon mean to you?
That sort of depends on how you use 'em, doesn't it? I mean, if you're keeping them for pets, then that's what they are. But I am a Trainer at the end of the day, so they are my arms and legs. My strength and an extension of my will.
Anything else you'd like to tell us about before you go?
This was lovely! Thanks for having me on. Arciel has been absolutely breathtaking -- not as beautiful as Kalos, but still wonderful. I look forward to showing my stuff to the trainers here and exploring every inch of the region!
Hey, so, you mentioned being able to work with the newspaper to put out an ad for Nikolas Baldrick. What do I need to--
Eep! Are you still recording!? Turn that off before I!!--
159cm / 5'2"
Amyrie is a woman who takes great pride in her appearance. Her long, golden hair is always perfectly tamed and often decorated with red ribbons to match her striking gaze. Her pale complexion is only beginning to warm in certain, sun-kissed places, such as her shoulders and cheeks. Any blemishes or unfortunate bumps are carefully hidden by just enough make-up, but she doesn't use any more than necessary.
Similarly, she takes very good care of her body. She doesn't eat too much junk food and is mindful of her weight and avoids doing anything that would seriously risk hurting her. As such, she has a decently athletic body with little traces of fat.
Her fashion is varied, but she tends to pick colors that match her natural features. Blacks look good on occasion, but bright reds or soft browns make up the bulk of her traveling attire. Of course, when in town and making a point of dressing up, she goes all out. Nothing is too expensive for her tastes, even if that means wiggling her way into a friend's wallet.
Golden and red rays of warmth emit from her body like the setting sun. The vibrant and bright glow that surrounds her burns the brightest at her core and quickly fades into the air around her.
