Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new universe, this new world, and give it purpose. (Our site is best viewed in Firefox or Chrome.)

Events

It's the most wonderful
time of the year- meaning, the time of Delibird gifts and of winter festivals! And as always, our plot events are still going strong.

Season

winter will be here until
March. Aside from the western Great Forest, which is too warm, and the Desert Strip, which is too dry, snow begins to fall across the region. The chill of the season has just about every area firmly in its grasp. Ice and Dark types become more common as the temperature drops and the daylight fades.

CADE LUCIAN FLAIR
15 - Male – Who know? (ace spectrum, probs)
Appearance

A typical first contact with Cade usually involved the child glaring at whoever approached him, challenging them with his gray eyes. Standing with feet spread apart and a slight hunch gives the impression that he'd spring into action at any moment, though whether he was planning on fighting or fleeing was anyone's guess. Being a mere 5’4” he didn’t strike the most imposing pose, though the beginnings of wide shoulders and a particularly nasty scowl helped somewhat.

His fashion style consisted mostly of dark colors, and the few lights he had were strictly for contrast. Skinny jeans were always mandatory, as well as shoes made more for looks than functionality. That was one of the running themes through his wardrobe, as his jackets and shirts would often manage to be both too hot for summer and too cold for winter. If there was one thing he did have that actually managed to work as it was supposed to, it was his hoodies. At least during the colder months, they did a decent job being both warm and comfortable. Beyond this, he also had a good number of accessories, usually bracelets, but also the occasional necklace or earing.

A good chunk of time- and a large chunk of money- was spent on makeup. He used it to cover any blemishes while giving himself just the look he wanted (eyeliner was used a lot). Similarly, his hair was always styled just so. Shaggy hair goes down to just above his shoulders, messy in a way that can only be achieved through time and dedication. Originally black, it was dyed a number of different colors before his current dark blue, and would’ve likely been dyed many more had he remained.

But now that he is living in Terrene, he’ll find that he is without the comforts of home. His hair will eventually return to black. Fashionable clothes will be harder to come by. He won’t be able to keep up with his makeup, and the eyebags and acne he was hiding will be visible. His body will continue to mature, but now that he doesn't have access to testosterone therapy he won’t be happy with the changes. Thankfully he doesn’t have a lot of fat on him, so the change in distribution won’t be too noticeable, so he'll be able to pass for a while, but not forever. He will have to learn to adapt to his situation without having his cosmetics to hide behind.

Personality

Losing his memories was, in a way, one of the best things that could happen to him. He no longer suffers from the bitterness towards his parents, teachers, and the other important people in his past life, and one would be hardpressed to find something that'll cause the same amount of betrayal and abandonment. Life on Terrene won't be easy, but for the first time in his entire life, he has a shot at obtaining true peace of mind.

But finding true happiness is an uphill battle for everyone, and Cade is no exception. He did not become a completely blank slate upon entering Terrene. The brunt of the pain is gone but some faint scarring remains and still influences his behavior. Cade is distrustful of others, especially of those older than him. He doesn't try to hide it and lashes out at anyone and everyone who tries to get too close. Even those with the best intentions are in the line of fire, as the combined might of his suspicion and still-present inferiority complex can be difficult to get around. That all said, he very rarely resorts to violence, preferring flight over fight. Instead, his weapons of choice are sass and sarcasm, biting riposte able to cut a man at the knees.

(It should be noted that his problem isn't an inability to play nice, it's a desire not to. He can act well-behaved, and quite convincingly, too, but generally saves doing so as a last resort.)

And yet, despite acting like a cornered animal ready to bite at all times, he constantly seeks out others. He needs to be near people. The boy is an extrovert through and through, and often plays the role of the unwanted tag-along in group settings. While many rely on positive interactions to grow to trust someone, Cade instead is influenced by exposure. Even when faced with someone he dislikes he will grow attached if they spend enough time together. This can lead to unfortunate situations where he overstays his welcome, though he is generally able to see the warning signs before it gets to that point.

A large part of Cade's problems stem from his self-centeredness. It is the type of selfishness found in children, where they have yet to learn how to care for others. Cade has always been consumed by his own insecurities, unable to see people past himself. This is an ingrained trait and not something that would've changed in not for one thing: his Pokemon. Alongside losing his memories, gaining a partner was one of the best things that could've happened. When dealing with other humans, his subconscious already expects the worse. Pokemon, on the other hand, are new. He rarely dealt with them in his past life, certainly not enough to remember anything about one. And he's supposed to be one's partner. To take care of it and make sure it remains safe. He doesn't know how to care for another living being, and he knows this. It's frustrating, but he isn't willing to back down.

Cade has always had difficulty feeling empathy and sympathy- but he isn't unable to. He will care for his Pokemon. He is determined to be a good trainer to them. It's a small step, but an important one. Opening himself up to them will allow him to open himself up to others. He will get hurt, of course; but if he's ever to be truly happy, this is how he needs to do it.

Beyond what will hopefully be his character arc, there are a few other things to note. The main one is, perhaps, is his obsession with looks. Aesthetics are extremely important to him, to a point he's willing to sacrifice practicality for it. Impractical though it may be, it is vital to his self-image. It is his main outlet for expressing himself and a good source of relaxation. His self-confidence was born when he started dressing like he does now, and until it grows a more solid foundation he will need to continue relying on it.

He has excellent memory and recall (not concerning the Suffering Universe, of course) and is a quick learner because of it. Things that he doesn't get right away are incredibly frustrating, though.

History

It could be said that he was born under lucky stars, as his life growing up was rather uninterrupted by the chaos. His family never lost their wealth, never had to deal with homelessness or death. The tragedy that seemed to strike so many around them never connected, it was easy to push it aside as someone else’s problem. His luck would run out eventually, but for good while, his life was peaceful.

He was born within a wealthy-ish family, made up of his mother, father, 12 year old brother and himself. Cade’s name had, originally, been Lucy; but when the barely old enough to talk kid kept insisting he was male it changed. His full name was Cade Lucian Flair, and he was destined for great things (or so his parents told him).

They also told him that the fact he was once thought female shouldn’t be talked about much. He didn’t understand why, eventually coming to the unfortunate conclusion that there was something wrong with him.

(And thus started the seed of insecurity, that would only become more all-consuming as he grew.)

Cade seemed gifted from the start, meeting all his milestones early and showing great curiosity in the world around him. He was very polite, showing respect to the adults around him while also playing nicely with all the other kids. The adults in his life always complimented him on this, praising his kindness and smarts- and he was smart! Smart enough to figure out the challenges put before him. Smart enough to figure out that acting kind and doing well in school got him rewarded. (And smart enough to figure out that acting kind and doing well in school were the only things his parents seemed to care about.)

(Praise had always made Cade happy, a treat after he completed a goal, but eventually gaining praise for praise’s sake became the goal. He measured his entire self-worth on what others said, the need for validation came to drive his every action.)

(It didn’t matter that his parents were constantly comparing him to his elder brother. It didn’t matter that they were telling him how similar they were, how Cade was following his footsteps perfectly. Even if his brother acted cold towards to him, showing him only disdain. It didn’t matter, or so he told himself.)

Being born and raised in Orre, the region with possibly the lowest number of Pokemon, he had very few interactions with them growing up. Instead, he busied himself with schoolwork and sports. He remained top of his class, took his team to the championships. Cade was one of the most popular students in school, due to both the aforementioned and how nice he was to everyone. Even to those normally ostracized, he would always bring his best smile and a helping hand (all faked, of course. In addition to the masks he wore, he also gained a superiority complex to protect himself. Think ‘I’m better than you’ three times fast, maybe you’ll start believing it).

Things started to unravel when he was 14. He had run into a wall, academically. Previously he had coasted through life, but now he found he was actually having difficulty. That little bit of difficulty started a chain reaction that had his carefully formed ego falling to pieces. Focusing more on his grades meant cutting into his social life. Eventually, his performance in sports suffered as well. He started to cheat while his stress continued to build.

When his parents finally confronted him he lied, claiming that he was being bullied. He was surprised, and overjoyed, when his parents started pampering him, telling him how he didn’t deserve such a thing and we completely understand, take a few days off school to get better.

The lie didn’t work forever though, as one day he found himself trying to explain the worst grade he’d ever gotten, and it ended with him having a violent mental breakdown in front of his parents.

After that, they avoided him. They didn’t know how to deal with the problem, so they tried to pretend it didn’t exist. This hurt Cade deeply. He felt more vulnerable than ever, and he wished for the care and understanding that they had shown previously. But as time went on, his wish changed for some attention, any kind of attention. /Anything/ besides the constant tip toeing his parents were doing around him.

It started with a plate. He smashed it on the ground in an act of cold, calculated anger. Had his parents gotten mad or reprimanded him or asked what was wrong, he wouldn’t have continued. But their behavior didn’t change, and all he could think was that he’d have to be worse.

(It was here that he lost the trust in the adults around him. He didn’t want to be the kid who was always following the rules to get a pat on the head anymore, so of course he would rebel.)

(This didn’t solve that problem that was his need for validation, not at all. It’s just that now, he needed someone to let him know that he was exactly the kind of person he was trying to be.)

Then finally, the day came where his luck ran out. On the way to buy a new pair of earbuds he found himself inside a strange circular prison. There were a number of them throughout the city, trapping people within. Unbeknownst to him, time started to slow down within the sphere, while the world outside continued on as normal. Eventually, time stopped for Cade. His family was distraught, knowing that they had been separated while on such awful terms with each other. But time heals all wounds, and they eventually moved on. They worked through their problems, learning to become better people and lead as happy a life as one could have within the suffering universe, before finally passing away.

And it all happened in less time than it took Cade to blink. And he remained there, until the moment he was pulled out of the universe.
