((Typos! I guarantee them!))Contact Info
: The best way to catch me is on AIM (SN in profile). I'm almost never in the IRC because the IRC makes me nervous and when I'm nervous I act like a fool, sometimes. That said, I know how to work IRC so I can make appearances in there on request.
: Between the ages of 12 and 17. I tend to lean towards the older end of that spectrum but Pokemon doesn't do a very good job of making the ages of its characters readily apparent. He's traveled throughout all known regions which makes him Ash's age at least. However old Ash is.Height
: 5'2"...Yes. Short.Weight
: 130 lbs is a safe bet, some of that being muscle.Medical Info
: Nothing unusual here.Eyes
: Paul's eyes are eerily dark and quite slanted. He shares his eyes with two other characters in the franchise: Don Giovanni
. It is interesting to note that Paul bears a strong resemblance to Silver both in terms of his philosophy on Pokemon and in terms of his physicality. Both are acrobatic, both feel that Pokemon are important only for battles and that weak Pokemon should be thrown away, both use Murkrow as their flying type. However, Paul is polite and essentially a good person once you look past his impassive behavior towards his Pokemon. Silver is full of vitriol. In many ways, Paul is Silver's mirror as Silver backbones Pokemon G/S
and is an important reoccurring character in the manga. Silver does not exist in the anime canon. However, in the manga (and it is hinted at in the games as well) Silver's infamously piercing eyes are justified. He has the same eyes as Giovanni because Giovanni is his father. There is a whole plotline that runs through Pokemon Adventures
about this. Why Paul has those same eyes is unknown but it COULD be that he is the son of Giovanni in the anime. For some reason, I rather hope he isn't. It just wouldn't make a whole lot of sense. He could be the son of Cyrus, though. That theory has merit.Hair
: Paul has raggedy purple hair, seldom ever brushedPhysical traits
: Paul has boyish sinew, built up from a lifetime of running, jumping and climbing.What's Okay To Mention Around Him/Her
: Anything goes. I'm sure he wouldn't like knowing he's from a franchise for "little kids" in other peoples' worlds but that is going to come up whether he likes it or not. Make him flail, I support it.Abilities
: Shares Silver's ability for being a tiny ninja
. Beyond that, well, he has a personal militia of critters. But he has no psionic or magical abilities whatsoever.Notes for the Psychics
: Psychics exist in Paul's world as an apparent character class. Those who specialize in, and devote their lives to, the study of Psychic-Type Pokemon become Psychics themselves. Psychics are powerful individuals in all forms of canon. In the games you can see them levitating Pokeballs in the air with their minds, in the manga they can Psionicly fling people around and the anime has the most extreme cases: Sabrina and her ability to psychicly project her consciousness into a doll and shrink adversaries, Anabelle and her power to telecommunicate. We can only guess what Lucian is going to be capable of when he shows up, which will be soon. All that said, Paul knows what Psychics are so if anyone told him they were one, he wouldn't have any particular reason to not believe them. If a Psychic were to read his mind they would sense pride and anger and beneath that uncertainty. He has no psychic walls in his mind, he's as readable as any other "normal" human.Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?
: I say go for it. For the big things, like bodyswapping, I ask you contact me first but really, I'm pretty lenient. And I like torturing my characters. So!Maim/Murder/Death
: This depends on my mood, so ask me first. Paul is entirely mortal.Hugging/Kissing/Other Non-Violent Physical Contact
: I really don't know how Paul would react to a kiss, that would depend on who was doing it and how. He's not a very tactile lad so he probably won't touch most other people. Feel free to touch him, though. He can handle it.Cooking
: He can cook well enough to feed himself on the go but he's no chef. I probably wouldn't eat anything he makes.
