21 - Male - Bisexual
AppearanceElliot is about average height, standing at five feet and seven inches. He typically appears taller, as he keeps his posture straight at almost all times to appear more professional. His build at a younger age was pretty lanky and thin, but over time he has grown to look more defined and well-toned in muscle. His face shows a square jaw, small pointy nose, and an infestation of freckles. His green eyes are outlined with clearly visible eyebags. Long and light brown hair falls in his face often, and is almost always held up in a ponytail at the back of his head.
His clothing is fairly simple, with a simple short-sleeved shirt and long pants most of the time. The one thing he wears consistently is his poncho. Said poncho is a light beige color and covers up his neck almost entirely. It's nearly impossible to see him without it, as he wears it like his life depends on it. Elliot keeps his clothes clean as much as humanly possible when he has the chance, but dirt and other stains from working still manage to make their appearance there.
PersonalityObsessive is what most people would call him. Along with an overachiever, a neat freak, and the man who never seems to sleep. All of these are true to an extent.
He certainly is the overachiever. Elliot finds the need to do a lot of extra work whenever he sees a chance. As he sees it, the more work he puts into something the better it is. This attitude can lead him to performing almost stupid stunts if he believes it can improve anything he is working on. See that essay?

His constant need for improvement has led him to become a type of perfectionist. He doesn't leave his home until every nook and cranny is spotless and in the right place. He starts to feel anxiety when he realizes something isn't organized or is needlessly dirty. Elliot also has a habit of moving stuff ever-so-slightly. 'Making it look nicer' as he calls it.
His need for improvement has also caused him to perform constant all-nighters to work on his projects and jobs. He often seems to forget about food and water if he's in one of those moods. Because of this, his general demeanor is the epitome of a man who hasn't seen a bed in six days. His movements are slow and his voice is low and calm... Unless he's in one of his frenzies of "prefection!" and becomes a man high on ten cups of coffee.
In conversation, Elliot is surprisingly fairly calm and soft-spoken. Although, he is a curious soul and his questions can sometimes be fairly odd or awkward. Generally friendly as well as willing to help anyone in need of assistance. However, he tends to get annoyed easily with others and will more than clearly make that apparent. When he's annoyed, he tends to tense up and snap at small things that are going wrong. He speaks his mind most of the time, unless he is by Omega.
... Oh Omega. Elliot looks up to the man and puts him on a pedestal for all to see. Despite his absolute hatred of being told what to do, he seems to be more than willing to follow directions from Omega and his partners. He's extremely loyal to him and his cause, and will probably fight anyone who tries to ruin or degrade it. Elliot also comes off as a total suck-up around him. Some might say he is attracted to his boss, but it's honestly just the fact that he finds Omega and his cause interesting. Omega gave him a chance to escape his former reality, and Elliot adores him for it.
HistoryLisa Hampton was alone for the months before Elliot was born. Before she arrived in Ashfield, she was a standing member of Oasis. Her life was happy at first, with a loving husband and a beautiful daughter. But unfortunately, luck decided to turn on her when her daughter was killed during a fishing trip. Heartbroken and enraged, Lisa was quick to blame her husband, who had been with the daughter at her final hour. She found that she was unable to tolerate him, even as he tried to explain what had happened. So when her daughter's funeral was over and her body was buried, Lisa took everything she owned and ran.
She wasn't alone for long, though. A couple months after she had began to settle into Ashfield and start to sell clothing for a living, Elliot was brought into the world. Lisa immediately started to dote on her son, giving him gifts, clothing, and excessive hugs and love.
But there was a flaw in Lisa's doting. She was terrified of losing another child like she had in Oasis. And so, she quickly became obsessively protective over her dear Elliot. She kept him locked inside the house constantly, keeping him in with scary stories about demons and horrible pokemon that would tear you to bloody pieces. And for the first couple years of his life, these stories kept Elliot confined in his room. He spent almost all of his days cleaning the house and trying to be a helper for his mother's clothing shop. He never once questioned how the people that came into the store had survived in the apparently bloodthirsty world outside.
But as he grew older, Elliot grew more curious about the world outside the house and shop. He began to ask his mother questions. If she could go outside, why couldn't he? When was he going to see the world? Could he at least play with the local boys that played right outside the shop?
No was always the answer. Every single time. Lisa kept reminding him of what had happened to his sister when she got too curious. Eaten by a sharpedo while his father did absolutely nothing.
A few times, Elliot had tried to sneak out to go play tag and hide-n-seek with the local children. But it wouldn't take long before Lisa would drag him inside and lock him in his room. They would get him into danger, she kept warning. She said that they would probably dare him to go venture off into the demon-infested woods if she had allowed him to stay. He needed to stay here where it was safe. Safe with her.
But the boy continued to whine about how lonely he was. He wanted friends, but his mother wasn't allowing to have them. Lisa did ultimately feel bad about that, but she didn't allow him to converse with the other children still. Instead, she caught him a chatot as a companion and friend. Elliot, at first disappointed in the gift, was fairly resentful to the bird. He wanted a human friend that he could have full conversations with, not some stupid pokemon...But over time he realized that he wasn't going to get his wish, so... He tried to form a bond with the chatot. Bernadette proved herself to be quite entertaining with her antics. She constantly repeated phrases and noises that confused customers, and proved to be a wonderful listener when Elliot wanted to vent out his frustrations.
The young man grew older, and became more involved with his mother's work. Along with obsessively cleaning the house and shop, he had taken to mending and making clothes to sell. His skills were impressive for his age, and his mother saw great potential for him. But... Elliot didn't feel fulfilled with it. He wanted to adventure and see the world for what it really was, not keep cooped up in some stupid house.
When he turned 16, he got his wish. Before then, he had only heard rumors of the witch of Terrene from customers. The concept intrigued him. A man with an unknown and mysterious cause working atop a mountain. Wonders and thoughts about what Omega was doing failed to leave his head, and it nearly drove him insane with curiosity. But whenever he asked his mother about anything to do with him, Lisa simply retorted with some off-handed comments about the man. He was a witch and probably unhinged. Elliot was to never go near him.
But he ignored her warnings. At that point, he was believing her words less and less by each passing day. He started to resent her overprotectiveness, and a hatred of her orders took form. He acted in passive aggressiveness whenever he was around her, and it nearly drove Lisa insane. She grew more forceful in her ways of keeping Elliot confined in the house, going as far as barricading his windowless room at the end of each day and ordering some customers she knew to drag him back if he tried to run without her looking.
Elliot finally snapped one day later in the year. He had caught a few glances of what seemed to be the mysterious Omega he had heard so much about. But when he tried to wave a greeting outside the window, Lisa stopped him and started to demand why he was so interested in Omega and his cause. The man never did give a response, instead storming off to his room and angrily sewing up some clothes.
His mother forgot to barricade the door that night, as she seemed to have been dead tired by the end of the day. Seeing this as his chance, Elliot quickly wrapped up a bag made up of old baby clothes and stored everything he thought he needed inside. And for good measure, he stole a good chunk out of the food storage before he disappeared into the night without a word.
He spent the next couple days wandering around Ashfield with Bernadette, though he knew he couldn't stay much longer without risking his mother finding him and dragging him back. So, he let himself take action on his curiosities around Omega. He had nowhere else to go, anyways, so maybe this was his best bet... Elliot soon joined up with a few followers of Omega, hopeful that the group would lead him to where he had hoped.
And soon enough, the group headed out of Ashfield and to Omega's camp. Along the way, Elliot took the time to gaze out and take notes on every single detail surrounding him. The outside world fascinated him beyond belief, and he was overjoyed. Even when his group ran into trouble along the way, he remained optimistic and excited.
After a few days, the group finally arrived at the camp. Elliot was quickly taken in as an explorer, and he took that title with as much pride as he possibly could. He worked day and night to do finish his work and more. He took every chance he could to explore to area around him and live the memories he never could as a young boy. He was content with this new life of his, and he hoped that he could work there for the rest of his life.
As the years went by, nothing too personal to him happened too much. He had gotten injured a few times from some of his adventures, but that was to be expected. The admittedly worst thing that happened was when he had to hide away for several hours when his mother came to the camp in hopes of finding her lost son. It took a lot of talking and persuasion rolls, but Lisa was finally coaxed into thinking that her son had not arrived at the camp, and was most likely somewhere else.
His hard work became a major factor in his new title as a research technician, which he received when he was about 19 years of age. He took this new job to heart, and began to work even more. He became more prone to all-nighters and reckless adventures in exchange for better results and data. And while he worked and worked, he still tried to find the time to train with Bernadette. Elliot was admittedly very tired, but it pained him when someone ordered him to take a break.
About a year later, a suggestion by Omega was made to him. Since Elliot was beginning to grow an interest in otherworldly forces in Terrene, it would perhaps help his research if he could find a ghost or a psychic type. The young man almost immediately grabbed his bag and dashed off into the forest as soon as Omega finished making the suggestion.
His choice in capturing a misdreavus was not an unintentional one. He wanted to potentially flatter his boss by capturing a pokemon that shared the same species as Edna, Omega's mismagius. This mindset ultimately turned on him, as he ended up catching a misdreavus that constantly stirred up trouble and tried to scare anyone that was in a 10 foot radius. His troubles only ensued when he accidentally caught a young starly that had decided to make its nest into his abode. The starly proved to be less of a hassle than the misdreavus, but still required a lot of time and attention due to being a young hatchling.
He still hasn't given up his hard work to this day. In fact, it has only intensified. He struggles with balancing his time with his work and team daily, and is overall very tired. But Elliot is still content with his free life, away from his confined walls in Ashfield.
