i've been thinking about joining a group like this for a little while...and ~Rika35
convinced me to give it a go XD Name: Cleo Karpen
Birthday: March 12th
star sign: Pisces
Home Island: Mystery Isle
Personality: Cleo might be described as an excitable girl. She enjoys exploring any beach, cave or building...just as long as she's back in time for tea! Her favorite thing about exploring? Getting lost. She feels that by getting lost, you will come across things that you wouldn't have come across if you knew where you were going. People might say she is superstitious and that could be due to all the ghost related activities she believes in. Cleo enjoys exploring abandoned buildings at dusk especially.
Cleo really enjoys stories and loves hearing any traveler's tale. She's an amicable person but she prefers to have a few close friends rather than be popular with everyone. She's willing to risk her image to protect a good friend.
Don't bother talking to her in the morning and expect her to remember everything that afternoon. She's not awake until she's had her hot cup of tea with 3 lumps of sugar (3 cubes for good luck, she says).
Nature: Bold (+Defense -Attack; likes sour food, dislikes spicy food)
History: Cleo's had a fairly normal life. She grew up in Violet City in Johto. When she was little she used to explore the Sprout Tower nearly every weekend, looking for the ghost Pokemon people said roamed the halls at night. Once night she finally managed to catch a fleeting glimpse of it and has been hooked on ghost Pokemon hunting ever since. Once she had grown up enough to move out of her parents' home, she traveled around for a while searching for ghost type Pokemon. Eventually, Cleo decided to settle down (for a while anyway) and she made her way to Raccolto, looking for new adventures and, hopefully, new friends.
Job: Business owner
Shop Name: Enchantments
Stock Type: Cleo owns a tea store that has so many different types of brews from around the world. At the moment, she's only open for afternoon tea. She bakes and prepares everything in the morning. She plans on opening a side room in the future for ghost enthusiasts like herself. She hopes to fill it with books and perhaps gadgets designed for ghost hunting.
Dog/Cat Race: Meowth
Cat Name: Nigel
moveset: Bite, Faint Attack, Fury Swipes, Screech
Cleo enjoys telling stories and is decent and weaving her own yarns.
She can make a mean Chai Latte~
Good at managing her money (ie she's good at resisting the 'wants' and only gets the 'needs'.)
Baking! Especially cupcakes.
moveset: Thunderbolt, Flash, Discharge, Signal Beam
favorite berry: Iapapa berry
Cleo wears a charm bracelet that she found the night she spotted the ghost of Sprout Tower. She wears it for good luck and as a reminder to never give up.
Cleo can't remove that 'headband' with her gem on it; it's pretty much attached to her head. She has a habit of rubbing it when she's nervous or exasperated.
