messenger bird trainer OF AshfieldA tiny, chubby Augustus was pulled through to Ashfield when he was only seven years old, with a little Azurill there to greet him. He was taken in by an elderly couple, who raised him as best as they could until they died nine years later, only a few months apart.
Today, Augustus is just over six feet tall, but has managed to maintain his comfortable layer of flubber. Dark eyes and darker hair decorate his tall and olive-toned form, with a pair of glasses perched on his nose that he doesn't need to see but wears because he believes it makes him appear more intelligent and more trustworthy. He prefers darker clothes when he can get them, and always in a more businessman style than an adventurer's style.
Though generally amiable, he is not above manipulation of any kind, with flatter and deceit being his favorite and most perfected art forms, but he is quite cautious about their use. He always tests the water before attempting anything, as there is nothing he hates more than being made a fool of. Despite his attempts at being cool and collected, he's got quite the temper that can flare up uncontrollably when things seem to be going too poorly for him, and especially when his opinions or cleverness are being threatened. Overall, he is a man that puts his own needs above everyone else's, rendering him both egotistical and greedy, though he hides it very well beneath his easy smile and his gratifying words.
For the last ten years he's been training birds, specifically Pidgey, as messenger birds, in conjunction with a few business partners that he has spread across Terrene. If you need a message sent to someone in another city, but don't want to travel there yourself, messenger bird is a good way to go; his Pidgey would take the note and fly to the designated coop in the destination city, where someone would keep an eye out for the person the note was intended for. It isn't a perfect system, particularly if the intended recipient of the note is not expecting one or if the messenger bird trainer in that city didn't get a good description of the intended recipient, but nevertheless it is about as good as long-distance communication gets.
Augustus also runs a general store, selling the unfertilized eggs his Pidgeys lay as well as anything else he can get his hands on (maybe a 40-60% chance he'll have a common item, like a basic pokeball or potion in stock, and maybe a 5-25% chance of the somewhat rarer items (weapons, specialty balls, traps, whatever). Additionally, if you're looking to buy something miscellaneous and not Pokemon/RP related (like a small cloth pouch for carrying berries, or an old and used paintbrush), he could be a good shopkeeper to go to as he collects various and sundry things to be able to sell, particularly things he can get for free or very cheap and then turn around and sell them for more.
He can barely read and write, but he's quick as a calculator when it comes to math and numbers, and he's got the memory of an

NotesAugustus has trained four Pidgeottos to deliver letters and small objects to the various settlements on Terrene. None are exactly fond of Augustus, but they have high loyalty from his various flattering and manipulative techniques and the fact that he keeps them well-fed. The loyalty and willingness to work for Augustus also comes from the fact that his human partners in the other city are mostly kind.
