Tell us a little about yourself. How would you describe yourself?
...How would I describe myself, is it? ...Well, I would not go for cheerful or anything similar like that... If anything, I guess... just someone who's looking for sense of self? I'm here to broaden my horizon some...
...That doesn't sounds like a good self intro huh? Well, let's start over. I'd like to think I'm a rational person, more communicative toward Pokemons, but not so much with humans. I just find... peoples tends to not show their colors as much as Pokemons. I like working with Pokemons but... not so much with humans.
It doesn't mean that I'm antisocial, mind. I'm just... awkward, I guess? I prefer to keep a professional distance generally. That's the best way to describe it.
I would also say... I have a bad habit of being too snarky. I can't help but to snark whenever someone did... something I don't quite like. That going to end badly usually, but well, this is how I am. I'm aware, I'm trying to change, but at times it can't be helped.
...I guess my positive side is that I enjoy exploring new things... new hobby, new area, adventurous sort I guess? I'm also quite experimental, especially with skills I have. Just give me any new recipes or share same hobby with me, I'm sure I'll open up easy I guess.
Why are you interested in the class you've chosen?
*Sigh*... I suppose it'll be eventually asked. This going to be long...
...What? You don't mind? ...Alright then.
Let's just say... there was once a very headstrong boy... a really headstrong one. He came from parents who were hoping to start a better life in Galar. His house was small, but it was warm. However, he was... not entirely appreciative of what he have back then. He... want to be famous, you see. Typical Galarian brat *chuckles*
...So this boy was eventually befriended a Farfetch'd who was wounded. He nursed him back to health. He was the boy's first partner, and on the boy's tenth years... off they go! To a big adventure! It was fun, fighting in wild area, camping... challenging gym was so secondary. He don't want to challenge gym unprepared. But how to get prepared? Catching new Pokemons? Preparing for strong-against types? None of that. The boy was so headstrong in mindset that his starter must be the strongest of his team.
...So he trained, trained and trained, until that Farfetch'd become Sirfetch'd. They're... if I were to describe it in gaming term... overleveled? But the two were happy, happy that they're together, happy that they have one another through fortune and misfortune. They're... inseparable... oh, correction. Were.
...Were? Yes, that's how it is. I'm getting to that part.
So this dumbass of a kid saw a bully ganging on a younger kid. On top of knocking the poor kid's pokemon out cold, they pressed him to hand his pokemon over. This dumbass kid stepped in, trying to be hero of the day. Of course his Sirfetch'd supports it. The dang avian is a knight! As I said prior, they're overlevelled as hell. They practically swept the ground with the bully's team.
Does it ends there? No, not really.
So the bully called his brother. Said brother specializes in Poison type Pokemons. It was supposed to be a "lesson teaching". Scare the hero a bit, make him run away and flatten his ego, you know? It works... it works definitely... but not in a way they wanted.
First, like I stated before, the boy came from a less well off family. He's poor. He cannot afford to buy many items. If he buy an item, he must make it count, so he always try to make do with berries instead. Thing is, he doesn't have any berries with antidote effect back then.
Second, his Sirfetch'd is a proud and honorable type. He will not let his trainer call him back versus these craven. Despite being poisoned, and no matter how hard his trainer cried and begged him to return to his Pokeball, he kept on fighting... until he won. Six against one. He won.
Third... Pokemon center was far away. The kid does not have any bike. Even when his adrenaline pumped him to run faster and faster without caring about fatigue... He was too late. His partner declared passed away on the way.
...Yes, I don't have a partner with me, you know why now. Can we move to the next question?
...What's after that?
...Well, the boy obviously buried him. There was none to blame but his own foolishness. He should have forcefully stopped the fight right there even if the avian knight hates him in return... but nope. That's how it is. From that point on the boy's family was compensated by a very rich man... his livelihood improved, but as for him personally?
He decided to study to become a nurse... so none of that will happen again. So that this time he can make it right.
Why are you interested in training in Arciel? Why not another region?
Why here, eh... I guess I just want to leave some things behind me, and start a new one. Plus, I wanted to know what sort of region this place is. ...Plus what's the best way to start a nursing gig other than going to a place where you can start new and just... build experience from there?
What do you consider your best attributes? They can be physical, mental, social, or anything else.
...Physical, I guess. I trained a lot. Granted violence is not my thing... I just think in case of emergency I can do more, is all. Well... another that I consider something noteworthy is... I guess I'm generally calmer in unexpected situation? Admittedly, my luck was pretty bad, so... Well, I often got dragged in lot of things where I have to think out of the box or decide my action through the limited options I have.
...Does that makes sense?
What do you consider your worst attributes? Be honest, now!
...Social, I think I have said that before. I don't really like to socialize or go out there to talk with someone. If they're interesting fellow, that's easier for me, but if they're just... how to put it... "flattering someone for the sake of furthering your goal", that... is not quite my style. I don't like it. Basically, I... don't like the idea that you have to socialize and broaden your social circle just so you can use it on later day. If we don't have any chemistry, I think talking further and making it awkward is... yeah, it's awkward.
What was your childhood like? How was school?
My childhood? Well, what I said before I guess. School is fine. I'm not really the kind who socializes a lot in school. My focus was just how to learn as much as I can before I graduate, get my nursing license and that's pretty much it. I do pick up some traditional medicine making and aromatherapy lesson. It was fun.
How is your relationship with your family?
Uhhhh, we call each other a lot I guess. I lived with my parents until liiike 15? We keep in contact obviously. I call whenever possible. I don't think there's that much to drive home about a taxi driver father and a florist mother, I'm proud of what they do, and I hope they stay healthy. However... I just... feel that I don't want to go home at the moment. It's not I have problem with them, no...
The problem is just me... and what's on the backyard I guess...
What do you like to do for fun?
Aromatherapy is great in my opinion. I also like to get a dip on a hot water with a lot of fruits floating on it... fruity bath yeah. Have you tried any Sitrus Berry bath? I suggest it, personally. It's relaxing.
Other than that, I guess training? I can cook a bit, but I guess I still need more practice heh.
What are your feelings on romance?
Errrr, not opposed to it, but I'm not sure if anyone got any interest in a rude guy like me... ...Plus, I still want to explore more if you get me. I'm... not the type that would stick with a person for a prolonged amount of time.
What are your goals for the future? Short-term and long-term.
...For short term, I just want to develop my skills, grow up into a better Nurse overall. I don't really want to get my own pokemon center or anything, but being a healing hand wherever I goes would be damn great...
For long term? ...I don't really know. I don't think it's as important to think at the meantime. I prefer to deal what on hand at the moment.
If you could be a Pokemon, what species or typing would you choose and why?
...It'd be nice to be the kind that could heal, I guess. More readily available... But more than that I guess it's just an idle thoughts.
What do Pokemon mean to you?
...Friends, partners, ...family member I guess. They're irreplaceable beings who lives together with us since a long time. They have done a lot of services to us, being essential part our life... I guess it's time for us to return some of that services back to them.
Anything else you'd like to tell us about before you go?
....Next time don't ask super personal questions like some of these, seriously.
6'2" / 189 cm
Azul is a tall young man at 189 cm tall, 88 kg in weight, mostly all muscles. He have tanned skin, both from his Hoenn heritage and sun tanned from all days spent in wild area. His hair is blue, about neck length and a bit spiky. His eyes meanwhile are silverish blue / pale blue. His trademark look is generally his scowl. He's almost always scowling, except when dealing with Pokemon. You'll see a calm and gentle expression he rarely shown to anyone.
To immortalize a passed away friend, he have a tattoo on his back which extends to his upper arm. It's a leek shield and wings, symbolizing a Galarian Farfetch'd, with oath "Always Protecting, Always Stay True".
Azur generally wears skin tight top and short pants. He wears arm sleeve that covers his elbow. For some strange reason, he only wears a single fingerless glove on his dominant hand (right).
Silverish, surging gently like a stream, or perhaps like a silky light. It's wispy, but clearer the closer it is to his person. Inside that silver though is a deep blue of melancholy and sadness.
