Oh wow, I haven't posted here in awhile! I've been so busy with Tumblr.... =w=; However, I'm working on an application for Harvest Pokemoon, as I have been for a few months now, preparing for their opening!
This is open for editing, of course, but here's one of the more recent drafts for this guy (a ginormous dweeb)
For his Info~
Name: Shesh Tomkin
The Abomasnow has little luck, but works hard to achieve his goals. He isn't particularly intelligent when it comes to philosophy or fine sciences and the like. In everyday situations, Shesh has the combined grace, poise, and tact as that of the elusive Magikarp. He can seem surprisingly oblivious or even air-headed at first glance, due to a tendency to focus on only a few things at a time (his concentration is incredibly hard to break at times... or hard to capture). He also tends to be very blunt in certain moments, even unwittingly so. However, Shesh has gathered a range of various cultural knowledge from his travels.
However many faults he has or how much he lacks in formal education, he's always been very curious and intrigued with many different things at once, and loves to learn - most often through experience, thus his affinity for travel. Additionally, he tries his best to listen and be very polite-- a habit he developed through meeting a variety of peoples. He enjoys using his experiences and gathered know-how to help others, should the need arise.
Shesh was born into a very rural, mountainous, almost arctic-like area in a small village. Because his mother left to find work after the death of her husband while Shesh was a toddler, the young Snover was raised by his Aunt (a Snorunt) and older cousin (a Delibird), with whom he was very close. He was a very quiet child, even rather naive, but nevertheless got along well with the other villagers in the tight-knit community.
From that point on Shesh arrived at countless places around the world, meeting just as many people and learning just as many things. He most often traveled simply by walking or hitchhiking in some way or another, and a good part of the time he earned food and supplies by doing odd jobs for the people he met (washing inn dishes, helping on fishing boats, etc.) or even making trinkets or carving gifts for people who asked-- a skill he learned from his aunt as a child. After every place he would visit and adventure in, he would only have more marvelous stories to tell to whichever group of folks he met next. As much as he had learned in his homeland, the young man gathered even more knowledge about the world and the people residing in it, and his already deep curiosity and love of adventure only grew the longer he wandered.
Job: Business Owner (Really just a shop-keep, but nevertheless...)
Stock Type: Miscellaneous... mostly nick-knacks, trinkets, and stories.
- Additionally, odd-job or general help and any advice he may possess, if someone needs it. (For tips, most often.)
- Shesh picked up the habit of smoking from a few old fishermen he knew in his hometown, and can often be seen with an old carved pipe between his teeth, whether or not it's actually lit.
- He's been exposed to many different instruments over his travels, but only very briefly. Therefore he may know a few simple songs or chords to pass the time, though more often than not he'll settle for his old harmonica if only due to lack of experience.
Always, always, always for the rps, please note me anytime and I'm sure we can work something out!
A note would be awesome so we can chat about an rp further! ^v^
(also your character is going to put me in a sugar-coma she's so cute! XD )
And his personality and history are so interesting!
Congrats on getting in the group, and I can't wait to see more of Shesh soon!
Welcome to the group, I really like this guy. At first I feel like he'd just be the biggest dweeb, but then he'd also be like a secret genius with all his knowledge he picked up. Overall a very cool character and definitely one I look forward to seeing more of. I especially liked that line comparing him to a magikarp, lovely comparison~
Also, if at all possible I would enjoy getting an rp with him at some point in the future.
Oh thank you so much, I'm flattered that you like my designs~
Anytime you'd like to rp would be great for me. I normally do Skype or note rps, so shoot me a note and we can discuss if further. ^^
Does He only walk and hitchhike in all his travels? Does he ever end up acquiring a bike, or small row/sail boat, or anything of the sort? He doesn't have to, I'd just also like to know how he travels ;v;
Once again, thank you very very much for the critique, I greatly appreciate it! c:
