WIP 1 & Original Description | WIP 2 | WIP 3For *wolfs-wish's contest for her Pokemon comic set in the Unova region: [link]
I am having a blast playing Pokemon Black right now, so I thought this would be a perfect thing for me to enter. She has it set up to do any out of 3 options, and I had an idea as soon as I read the "love" interest.
The ZIP file contains the image above plus a Microsoft Excel file with three tabs: Galen's full history in color ^^ ... Galen ... And images of Galen's main team. Really, that is just for reference for *wolfs-wish
I was going to try to do 4 memory images, but I was seriously running out of time, so I used the two that were my favorite. The top one is the moment that Avesta not only realizes that Galen is blind but also the moment where she realizes she likes him as more than a friend. The bottom one is a cute play on Avesta's spunky and fun nature against Galen's fear of water.
Name: Galen Tomas Gray History this is kinda loooong
Birthday: March 21 (Pisces)
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 192 lbs
Quirk: Can feel vibrations when creatures move
Flaw: Blinded as a child; unfriendly to water-type pokemon; falls easily if there is sudden/jarring movement
Skill: Excellent hearing and memory
Talent: Reading emotion in people and pokemon's voices; locating movement and noise sources
Likes : Random conversations and large groups (more difficult to tell he is blind)
Dislikes: Being alone or in very quiet/still surroundings; when people point out he is blind; spontaneity.
Dreams: To become a member of the Elite Four (bug type pokemon)
Tall with lean muscle. Shaggy reddish brown hair over clear green tinted amber eyes. Boyish facial features with a soft jawline.
Calm and predictable. He likes to smile rather than not smile, but when he isn't thinking about it, he usually appears to be in deep thought or lost somewhere out in space… He never tells anyone that he is blind and always attempts to play off his blindness as no big deal, hair in his eyes, not being blind, a joke… He can be quite sarcastic at times! He is also very independent and doesn't like to rely on anyone for any kind of help. He does most things alone despite his desire to be around people.
C-gear, Pokedex with special speaker function since he can't read, 3 spare pokeballs, belt with regular team's pokeballs, 2 Fresh Water, 2 Antidote, Backpack (has extra shirts and a spare pair of pants among other clothing necessities), soap and toothbrush/toothpaste, and his transreceiver (video always turned off)
Galen's Main Team
Volcarona, Garvantula, Beartic, Boldore, Deerling, Deino
They were obtained in that order. He also has caught other pokemon plus has his starter pokemon from Professor Juniper, Snivey. The pokemon currently stored with his father are: Servine (evolved from Snivey), Axew, Whimsicott, Golett, Swoobat, Rufflet, Drilbur, and Klink.
Galen was born in Castelia City in the Unova region, the oldest of 3 children. Both his mother and father are quite elderly, having married and started a family very late in life. His mother has a soft spot for bug pokemon and helped each of her children catch their first pokemon with the aid of her Leavenny when they were very young. Galen also has a soft spot for bug pokemon. His first pokemon was a Larvesta, but it was a little Joltik that rescued him when a wild Tympole startled and defended itself with Scald, hitting Larvesta with a critical hit and catching Galen in the face with the boiling water. Galen was blinded at the age of 4, and the little Joltik stayed with him until his Larvesta revived and Galen's mother found them. Joltik has never left his side since that day and is usually found outside of its pokeball using String Shot as a guide for Galen, almost like a leash.
Galen, at one point in his life, let his blindness control him. With encouragement from his family, his confidence grew, and he eventually caught himself a Cubchoo in the winter after his 9th birthday. Now becoming more adventurous and feeling liberated as his comfort in his dark world grew, he started to train with his three beloved pokemon. By the time Galen was 10, his Joltik had evolved, and Larvesta wasn't far behind, evolving during a battle with his sister Gracia and her Whirlipede on his 11th birthday. With the ability to go anywhere thanks to Garvantula's move String Shot being used as a guide in unknown areas and his senses becoming heightened, Galen decided that he would leave on his pokemon journey and take on the Unova gym leaders. He was finally able to realize this goal on his 14th birthday when he was able to successfully pass Professor Juniper's tests to become a pokemon trainer worthy of a Pokedex, a C-gear, and his starter pokemon (he chose Snivey).
Traveling has proved to be a little more difficult than Galen had thought it would be. It takes him twice as long to get through areas he has never been in before, even with Garvantula's help. And Galen cannot really stay outside in the elements. He can only carry so much, and without a bike or other transportation, he is not able to carry a blanket for sleeping outdoors. Though happily, Galen has a great advantage over many other trainers... Because he cannot see, he is not so easily distracted. This keeps him intently focused on the task at hand and aids in his memory of trainers and their battling styles. And in caves, at night, in the fog, etc, he never has to worry about his vision being obscured since he already knows how to live without relying on his eyes. However, he is virtually incapable of navigating by himself through rocky or icy terrain.Do not use.
