That was simultaneously the best and the worst holiday I have ever had. I should have known better than to put my trust in whoever told me it was going to be a a good idea.

I just...

... I'm not one of these beach types. I don't think we even have proper beaches in Sinnoh. Are these great big random occurences common? Nobody seems even a bit surprised that they happen.

So it stands to reason then, that these things are common place, hm.

I never considered using one of these things until relatively recently. It never crossed my mind to try and chronicle my day to day.

But I shall make an effort, for memory is flawed and recorded permanence is almost forever.

I have come to this... academy to hone my skills. I have excelled as a trainer. I must excel as myself now. To gain an understanding of myself and Lucario better. That is what I plan to achieve by coming here despite my doubts. I had them. But I have rid myself of them, or have attempted to do so.

I look forward to making your acquaintance, fellow students and staff. My name is Riley. I'm a teaching assistant. I have certain skills in organic chemistry and geology, but my skills as a Pokemon trainer surpass that.

Riley has this really nifty ability called Aura. What's Aura? Well, to quote what I've written on his app...

Riley comes descended from a line of Aura Guardians. Aura is the quintessential being of every creature in this world - humans, Pokemon, you name it. (The only things that don't have Aura are machines/inorganic things, usually). Riley then has the ability to detect and to some extent, manipulate Aura around him. (his in-game sprite has a blue flash around his hand and he mentions reading the player's aura a few times).

While he can't manipulate the auras of other people, he can read them and he can sure as hell manipulate his own. This changes the way people will react to him, but it only influences them rather than being a complete changer of their moods and thoughts - and it goes without saying only in person. Generally Riley's aura is that of calm but for example, if he wanted to rouse morale he could project a more "excitable" Aura. Or if he wanted to keep people away he could try to project a "standoff-ish" aura. Mind you he's still trying to learn the ins and outs of it so it may not always work.

Aura is a wave, and works almost the same way as sound so it can be disrupted, reflected or blocked if the mechanism of doing so is known.

Want Riley to be able to see the esssence of your character's being from the get go or are they a lot more highly guarded?

Regardless of permissions - Riley is able to detect great shifts in mood and temperament. If your character goes from happy to sad or calm to angry or angry to even angrier, Riley will pick up on that.

It's almost a way of seeing rather than anything else. It is tiring, so unless your aura is completely dazzling or great (think of when Team Galactic disrupted Iron Island - all the Pokemon were distressed and so Riley picked up on that without even trying.), Riley won't be constantly looking for people's aura 24/7.

Leave a comment for each character and obviously if you have any comments or queries then let me know. :)

Underneath are some questions for you, dear sirs and madams.Collapse )
