PF App: Blade the Scyther by Operia PF App: Blade the Scyther by Operia

As of March, this character is officially dead

I killed him off.  Please don't use him or his design.

Notes on Blade’s Design
:bulletgreen: His claws don’t retract; he always has them extended
:bulletgreen: He has a stump where his tail would normally be, which is only really visible from behind
NB: The stump can move.  It is still a tail.
:bulletgreen: His tongue is grey, as is the inside of his mouth

Basic Information
Name: Blade
Gender: Male
Age: 17 in human years
Rank: Team Rocket Grunt
Housing #8
XP Count: 54 (total 54)

Pokedex Information
Scyther by Sageraziel
Pokemon: Scyther
Species: Mantis Pokemon
Entry: It's very proud of its speed. It moves so fast that its opponent does not even know what knocked it down.
Type: Bug
Move Set: Fury Cutter, Agility, Quick Attack, Pursuit
Held Item: Amulet Coin
The Amulet Coin was a gift from his father, whom Blade thoroughly respected and looked up to. He keeps it in memory of him.

Personal Information
Nature: Rash, likes to fight
Personality: An overly energetic creature, Blade finds it hard to sit still and has a fairly short attention span. He is also impulsive, acting more on his insane urges than on anything that requires him to think through the consequences first. He hates formalities and any place where he has to behave for long periods, and as such will find any excuse to avoid them. His primary motivation is his will to fight; he will often challenge others without warning simply out of his incessant need for exercise. However, he does know when to draw the line and will not attack if his challenge is refused.

While he may not seem like a very intelligent character – and he most certainly isn’t – Blade will take in most of what others tell him. He does dwell on his mistakes and learn for them…although that doesn’t stop him from repeating some of the same mistakes over and over again. In particular, he is very poor at reading social cues and often behaves inappropriately in these situations. As a result, he often alienates others.

Along with his inability to read social situations, Blade has a tendency to “collect” objects that don’t belong to him, especially shiny or sparkly objects. He keeps these in his room, stashed away in a hidden compartment so as not to be discovered.

Likes: Sparring with others, sparkly objects, solitude, small enclosed areas
Dislikes: Formal situations, being refused a challenge, hot areas & fire
Fears: Agoraphobia (fears wide open spaces)
Strengths: Relatively swift in battle, can and will learn from past mistakes
Weaknesses: Very poor at interpreting social situations, unable to pay attention for long periods, too unfocused
Goals: Due to his lack of focus, Blade has no real long-term goals

Blade's Legacy - A Story
Blade grew up on Poke-Paws Island with his father, outside the city borders. As his father was a thief and trying to avoid the attention of the authorities, they never adventured into the city or interacted with any other cats. When Heatran’s wrath brought ruin to the island, Blade managed to fly away along with the other felines. His father, unable to fly or swim, perished in the lava flow.

When he reached Cianwood, Blade returned to his solitary life for a fair while. However, he quickly grew lonely and developed a desire to meet other felines. He came across the Rocket Base while searching for a place to live, and begged them to let him join. He was accepted into the group, and became initiated into the grunts. He has still yet to prove himself

RP example
Time Zone: NZST (New Zealand Standard Time) or NZDT (New Zealand Daylight Time)
My time zone changes due to daylight savings. I will cross out the zone that doesn’t apply.

With role-playing, I prefer Notes over most other methods. With replies, I do expect at least a paragraph of action (I loathe the script role-play format and will not use it in serious role-plays). Also, to keep things tidy and because I do sometimes take a while to reply to role-plays, I ask that you DO NOT send a new note for each response! Just reply to the other one.

Chatrooms: The dAmn network is quite faulty for me, so my chances of joining in on a chatroom role-play is dependent on my computer’s will to co-operate.
Skype: I don’t use Skype often, but if you want to role-play over Skype then please Note me for my username.
Blog: I will check the clan’s role-play blog every few days

Script Format (NB: I hate using this format, and will ONLY use it in comments on deviations. Do NOT ask me to use this format in serious role-plays)

Blade: *approaches you slowly, grinning with his teeth exposed* Well, I warn’t expectin’ company, fo’ sure…but aw well. Wha’s ya name, hm? *sidles up to you, giving you a good once-over as he circles around you* P’raps we coul’ ‘ave a spar lat’r, if yer up fer it. Are ya up fer it?

Paragraph Format
The Bug-type’s wings fluttered slightly as he wandered through the forest, his extended claws kicking up dirt and gravel with every step. Blade preferred the shelter of the trees to the bustle of the city; it was calmer here, more pleasant. Moreover, here he was almost guaranteed not to run into any other cats. Not that he particularly disliked company – on the contrary, he even invited it sometimes – but the peacefulness of being all alone soothed him immensely.

As he reached the forest border, Blade lay down under a large tree and yawned. It was a warm day, and even with the shade of the trees the mantis could feel the heat. As he squirmed into a more comfortable position, Blade mumbled to himself.

“Sure’s a nice day, hm. Kinda wish there was som’un ta spar with…but aw well. Can’ ‘ave ev’rythin’, now, can we? Gotta be patient, take life as it comes. Do wish som’un was ‘round, tha.”

The Scyther cat lay his head down on his paws, still mumbling incoherently about the nice weather and the will to find some company. However, he soon started to feel drowsy, the warmth of the sun encouraging him to take a long, well-deserved nap. Eventually, he shut his eyes and let himself snooze for a while, his ears flickering occasionally as he rested.
I do not own Pokemon or the Poke-Cat concept
