❧Nature: ???
❧History:
Spoiler: show
Cubone, being frequently spotted in Lavender Town, are often adopted and taken as pets. This was the very case of January and his Cubone. January was given his first pixelmon at the humble age of ten, and like any usual resident of Lavender Town would, he named his pixelmon, composed entirely of skin (scales?), bones (BONES???), and miscellaneous cartilaginous materials: Fluffy. Cubone accompanied January almost everywhere he went, to school, to the library, and to recreational buildings for "fun". And January did have "fun" with Cubone. The cubone also aided January, for it would battle any Gastly it could. Unfortunately, most Gastly are impervious to most Ground and Normal attacks, which was the entirety of Cubone movepool, so it would frequently lose to the Ghost-types.

Uber
❧Gender: Agender
❧Nature: ???
❧History:
Spoiler: show
The need for a pixelmon able to fly took January up to the Blitzle Veld where, due to his studies, he knew a certain breed of Pixelmon resided. He discovered Uber as a Metagross, which was beneficial to his needs, as it didn't need evolving. Unfortunately, Metagross are exceptionally difficult to capture. Jan camped out and studied this Metagross's movements for multiple days before finally making an attempt to capture it. January can be frequently arriving and leaving events on this Metagross. Sometimes, you see the pair in the sky, chasing a story for a broadcast. Other times, Jan lounges on the Rocky mass to a bit of rest and relaxation.

❧Nature: ???
❧History:
Spoiler: show
Shortly after January arrived in Toro, a water catching contest occured, and since Jan decided to be social and scope out the scene, he had to participate. And so, he caught this Slowpoke. It's now to big or too small, too smart or too dumb. Jan loves it though, and it keeps him company while he's working long hours in Carmine or chilling in Cobalt.

Biography
❧Parents: A mother. And a father. Like anybody else.
❧Siblings: None
❧Children: None
❧Extended Family: Probably.
❧History:
Spoiler: show
In the middle of summer, about... how old is our character? About that many years ago. Our character's story begins in the little Town of Lavender, a town many know for it's quirks and kinks. A person and another person had just delivered a child with rich brown skin and whispy, light locks. So, like any normal parent would in the middle of Summer, they named their child January. January was raised a studious child, in no part to his parents. His parents mainly sat back and let Lavender Town itself raise their child, as was customary.

January loved going to the Library. Although, he wasn’t too fond of the Librarians. They were terribly restrictive for a special kid like Jeremy, and he found them bossy and particularly imparticular. He mainly did his own thing, however. There was a world of books ahead of him! He absorbed information about Pixelmon, and Medicine, and Bowling, but his favorite information to absorb was completely, for the most part, fictitious. His favorite completely, partially fictitious stories were old books that contained legends of the town. Now, one could blame his love of these ghost stories on his amaranthine environment, but January would be completely the same if he wasn’t in Lavender Town. However, January could never possibly live in any other town besides his violaceous town, as he would always be pulled right back into the town.

Despite the fact that he loved studying, he had always found school particularly difficult. Not because he wasn’t good at his studies, but because he wasn’t very good at his socials. He was often left out and picked last at kickball, so he took to being an observer. When he was younger, he’d observe when the girls he sat with would whisper and point to him. He knew what it meant. He didn’t particularly care. Neither did anyone. Everyone knew in Lavender Town that what happened at school didn’t matter.

Everyone knew about Lavender Town Radio Tower. How it used to be the infamous gravesite for lost Pixelmon. How it was filled with the spirits of the deceased companions of trainers from across the regions. Unfortunately, this is what caused Lavender Town to be so terrible before January was born. Not because of the spirits, but because of the worse thing they attracted: tourists. Not wanting to become a tourist trap of a city, Lavender Town remodeled the Pixelmon Tower into the Kanto Radio Tower. This is where January spent the latter days of his time in Lavender Town. He had an internship at a local news channel on the radio. He wasn’t initially getting the job for what was on the itinerary, but for the building itself. He was excited to see some ghosts! But unfortunately, every seemingly paranormal encounter he was about to have was not a real ghost, just a Gastly. Gastly are Ghastly cre—
No. Screw this. Gastly suck. They’re giant assholes and everyone in Lavender Town(Purple and Bold) hate them. They’re pests. Even besides that, Steve from 8th grade had one and would always challenge January to a Pixelmon Battle, which January didn’t care about even! Steve knew January only had a Cubone with ground and normal-type attacks but Steve would still beat up the poor Cubone and Gastly are dumb and just balls of stupid gas and- Well. January hates Ghastly.

January’s internship was a grueling and generally bad experience, and he loved it! He loved going and getting coffee and collecting sharp shards of a swirling purple stone and pledging various body parts to mysterious, powerful pixelmon. And getting coffee! Eventually January was able to get a weekly spot on the show, and from there his budding passion for Radio blossomed. He sometimes got to tell of mysterious white hands or eerie tunes that play on the darkest nights when the wind is howling just right. However, it was usually just more of the same. This and that, another kid lost in the graveyard or another Haunter-related abduction. You know, a normal tuesday night. But that might have January’s favorite part about Lavender Town:

E̥̬̻̪͌v̝̝̮̮̰͔e͚ͫ̄́͂r̬̜̱̯̘̃͐y͐t̖̗h̲̜͛ͨ̄̈́̈̓i̪ͭͤ́͒̆͐̃n̥͚̜̦̬͈ͥ͗̾ͪ̚ͅg̈́̊̂͒͗ͧ́ ̙̞ͬ̅̔̈̀̚i͓̼̯ͬ̔n͖̗̝̦̪̈́ͭ̔̈́ͭ̈́̚ ̳͙̂̊̂̑͒͂L̦̘̮̟̞̇̄̚ǎ̮̲̲̃͋͛͗ͥ̍v̲͎͙̻̲͚̀͒͑ͅē̲̃͗̑͊̚n̗̣̠̗̯ͮͥ̓̇ͅd̥͖̤͚̱è͓̣̳̞̙̰̌̊̊̅ͫͅr͉̖͉͇̫͈̒ͣ͗̓ͤͪ ̮͚͚̭͚̾Ṱ́̂̿̈́͛o̬͉̮ͅw̫̹̪͓͒ͪ̎͂ͬ͑̇n̰͓̣̠̙̲͋̒̇ͤͪ̎ͣ ̤͙ͧ̓̽i̳͈̩̝͌̒s͎̳͍̲͉̊ ͔͚̟c͎̫͔̻̤̽̍͛ͥͥͨͅo̫͈̳͓ͮ̐̾ͩm̘̔̋ͭp͔̦͇̺̥͇̖ͬ̿̌͛̅̾̓l̜̼͕e̠̰͓̯͕̦͇͛̚ẗ̤͇̥́ͣ͆̒̚e͌̽̔͐̈̃͊ĺ̗̝̘̣ͫ͊͆y͍̟̰ ͕̰͎̯͉͍̬͊̏͋ṅ̌̈́̄͛̍ͯo̘̫̬̥ͮr̹̩̄̉̔m͕̩̰͙̝̏̿ȧ̗͌͐͐ͥ͑ͪl̻̱̗̖͎̬͑̍



And here, at the radio station he heard about a region far away with strange occurences everywhere you turn. This region, known as Toro, attracted many faces from all over, which was more than he could say about Lavender Town. And so, January packed his bags and up and left without another word, ready to spread his stories, and gain some new ones.

❧In Toro:
Spoiler: show
January's story in Toro began with him looking for a new town. It was in his nature to be a townsperson. However, none of the Towns in Toro intially captured him. He had a few requirements, the biggest being that it had to have a Radio Tower. January traveled all across the region before deciding on Carmine. It had a similar climate and landscape to Lavender Town, as well as a similar size. And it had a radio tower. It wasn't perfect, but it wasn't terrible either. He rented a home and got a job as a radio host. This is where he started Carmine Community Radio.

Shortly after arriving in Toro, Jan took to the streets for people watching, to get a feel of the region. One of these people watching events took January to Cobalt for a water-type event. Jan never really liked Cobalt. He found the Ocean nauseating and the high concentration of people grating. At this event, however, he first spied Hadi Knighton. Hadi was participating in the bathing suit contest, so how could January not love him? The tall, dark, and handsome stranger was so beautiful at first sight with his Lavender hair and rippling muscles. A person had never captured January quite like Hadi.

Shortly after the water-type contest, January ran into Hadi again. This time it was in Galena. Their conversation was awkward and clumsy due to January's general ineptness toward affection, but he secured himself a date. Unfortunately, Jan decided to take his brand new friend to the Graveyard. After his initial Carmine Community Radio broadcast, an anonymous fan, who January took to calling his "Benefactor", suggested he scope out the graveyard. And what a perfect place for a first date. After some wild misadventures with an enthuastic January and a scared Hadi, they made it off of their first date alive. Then came a second date and a third. They went from being partners to being boyfriends. Jan fell more in love with Hadi every day. Eventually, in a grand gesture, inviting January to move in with him. January, despite his disdain of Cobalt, accepted because he loved his boyfriend so much. Isn't that cute?

While his romantic endeavors were happening, January's show began to pick up steam. He had more and more listeners each broadcast, and more guests came on. Eventually, he became a somewhat known figure, not just in Carmine, but in all of Toro. Jan wasn't used to people recognizing him, or having fans. It was all very strange at first, but after it continued, he began to accept it. But he still did his radio thing, that's what it was always about. Now and then, one can spy Jan flying back and forth from Cobalt and Carmine early in the mornings. He commutes for the things he loves, and the promise of the future he desires.

About
❧Personality:
Spoiler: show
A questionable young man, January represents his hometown well. Behind his blank eyes and sharp smile, there's a lot of thought and analysis happening. He's looking for something odd that he can relate to. Perhaps it's the way your eye moves when you pronounce a hard consonant. Or the distinct way your eye glistens in just the right angle of light, he's always looking for some sort of abnormality. He keeps a fairly pleasant demeanor if you're not paying close enough attention. He'll listen to you speak and he'll talk, but his mind will be elsewhere. However, this can break if something sets him off just right. If a certain phrase strikes a match of anger, he might go on a passive-agressive rant about someone he knew 9 years ago. Or he'll notice something about you he just loves and he'll focus on it intensely and become nearly unintelligible when he speaks. He finds it easier than not to hide the more human parts of himself, however. Inside, like most citizens of Lavender Town, he's afraid of what will happen if he strays from the norm. Will he be viewed as odd? But not the good odd. The bad odd. Deep down, what he wants the most is to find someone who is interested in what he has to say and he's able to shut himself off for and to get to truly know them as a person, not just details.

❧Strengths: A clever young man, there are few situations he can't wrap his head around. Also, one might mistake his tolerance for horror as bravery. In reality, however, he finds most terrifying things curious and a learning experience.
❧Weaknesses: An outsider might find him awkward or wierdly apathetic. Beneath his exterior, he hides insecurities about himself, so he avoids intimate relationships.
❧Alignment: True Neutral
❧Ambitions: To spread the stories of Lavender Town to the people of Toro.
❧Hobbies/Interests: Ghost Stories, Bowling, Reading
❧Skills: Communication, Personal Analysis, Storytelling
❧Likes: Actual Ghosts, Lavender Town, Unique Personal Details
❧Dislikes: Gastly, Librarians, Unreadable things.
