Name: Katherine Greyson
Age: 31
Race: Human
Occupation: Author (ex-journalist)

Personality: Calm and collected, Katherine is as mature as her age suggests. In comparison to many of the more impulsive or eager trainers, Katherine is decidedly reserved. Her career prior to now has taken her down a very different path to trainers, and though she has enjoyed many battles and collected a notable number of pokemon to raise, battling competitively has never been her priority. Down-to-earth compared to most, Katherine also sports a sharp wit, the key feature that makes her writing so popular. Despite her ability to snark, she is usually kind and sporting as far as trainers go, having no qualms with helping out other trainers whether competition or not, giving them tips and training with them if she has time on the road. Though she can occasionally seem condescending to the more self-confident trainers, those who she meets almost always remember her fondly.

History: Katherine received her first pokemon when she was ten, as with most children - a vulpix. She spent the majority of her teenage years focusing on education over adventure, raised by her mother to value the arts and intellect alongside the world where pokemon seemed to be everything. When she graduated, though, her immediate move was to satisfy the urge for travel she had thus far been unable to. Packing up her bags, she and her vulpix set off to explore Kanto, her home region. Gathering a team as she traveled, Katherine started to write about her adventures a few weeks in, and on a whim sent the humorously composed pieces into a regional newspaper. Surprisingly for her, they were a hit, and she was contracted to produce the little snippets every week, providing a humorous look on the life of a nomadic trainer.

Over ten years, Katherine traveled from Kanto, to Johto, to Hoenn, to Sinnoh - all the while documenting her experiences as observational comedy. Last year, she published her writings as a novel, sewing together her haphazard wanderings into a coherent sequence of events. Selling extremely well, Katherine has enough money now to dedicate herself more fully to being a trainer, and has decided to try her hand at the league challenge.

Nearby on the same street, an older woman was perched on a small wall. She was rooting around in her purse, a large black thing with leathery tassels dangling from it, her expression one of frustration. From her irritated mutterings, it was obvious she'd been looking for whatever she was looking for for longer than she'd expected. To her side, a ninetails lounged out on the pavement watching her with a raised eyebrow.

"Uhg, this disorganised bag of everything will be the end of me one day. I'll be out in the field and some dangerous pokemon will come charging out, and I'll take so long rooting out a pokeball that it'll have trampled me before I could toss one of you out!" Katherine grumbled, ignoring the fact she wore her pokeballs at her hip - but that was what good storytelling was about. Ignoring the inconvenient and non-entertaining truths that were in the details.

"Ahah!" she proclaimed, producing a mobile phone from the depths of the handbag, straightening with a sigh and tapping it to receive the text she'd heard. As she started walking again, the ninetails falling into step, she glanced up to see an odd scene ahead - a Reuniclus bumping into a young woman in the middle of the street.

That was odd. Was the Reuniclus hers? If not, why had it wandered so far into the city? She was new here, she supposed. Maybe that was normal?

Ilene Evans was just walking along, keeping to herself and nerding out to video games when she abruptly felt excessive resistance in front of her. In her tunnel vision she hadn't even realized something was there! "Whβ€”" she started, looking up into the orange colored inhuman body in front of her. It caved in flexibly as if she'd walked straight into Santa's holly jolly belly, but the resistance soon caught up with her and she was pushed backwards, falling straight on her butt. Her 3DS landed with a small crack nearby. She emitted a quiet "Ah!" as she scraped the palm of one of her hands trying to catch herself and looked up at the thing she'd run into. It was a reuniclus, and he was apologizing. She just sort of... did a double-take. "Eβ€”Eh..? Hello!" she offered in a somewhat friendly if not confused manner, rather unaware of the older woman watching her.

"Are you alright?" Nearly everybody acted the same when he spoke, and it was always lost on him. For being a rather intelligent Pokemon, he was quite clueless at times. His arm outstretched to snatch up the device, and then the other outstretched to lift the woman off of her rear and place her back up on her feet.

His eyes bounced from the woman, to the even older woman with a Ninetales behind her, down the street a bit. "I'm sorry!" He called out to her, mistaking the other two as company of the one he had just bumped into.

And it talked, too - go figure! This wasn't the first talking pokemon Katherine had bumped into on her travels, but they were certainly rare. The woman moved up closer, half-raising her eyebrows. "Sorry? It's not me you bumped into, so don't worry about apologising to me. I'm sure Whisp found it amusing, little sadist that she is."

The ninetails - Whisp, as Katherine called her - gave her trainer a pseudo-plaintive look, as if to say 'who, me?'

"Don't give me that! I've known you for too long for that to work, and you know it." Katherine said, smirking. Whisp looked away with a huff, flicking her tails.

Ilene Evans shook her head briefly, addressing the other female with her eyes briefly before she was lifted and placed back onto her feet. Woah! Okay. So the reuniclus was also slightly chivalrous! She let out a sigh of relief but hesitated a moment. "Waitβ€”" she said, before looking around and spotting her 3DS. She turned and bent over to retrieve it. Enjoy the view As she stood back up straight she examined the portable gaming device for damage and visibly untensed as she failed to find any. "Thank goodness... Alright. Clear." she said before turning to the woman and the reuniclus. "Hi! I'm Ilene. I'm working on the pokemon storage system here." she said in a friendly tone, apparently forgetting all about being knocked on her arse. Perhaps it simply wasn't a big deal.

The gel around him seemed to lose its mass as he shrunk in on himself at the mention of a storage system and at his mistake. He wasn't a fan of the storage system, and although the process of being converted into a sort of data was interesting, it wasn't one he fancied actually being done to him.

He remained silent, however, and observed the older woman for a while before then turning his gaze to the Ninetales, Whisp she had been called, and observing her as well. It wasn't too long after that that his dopey smile returned and the mass of his gel returned to normal. He placed an arm in front of him and gave what bow he could manage while floating in the air.

"I'm Amni, self named for amniotic fluid. I'm sure you can see why."

Katherine smiled, "Katherine Greyson, I'm an author. You might have read my book... well, one of you might have at least." The woman glanced at Amni, "No offence, you just don't strike me as the reading type. Correct me if I'm wrong though! A bookworm pokemon would be something new, but I'm sure there's one out there. The storage system though? Now that's interesting. It's something we all use, but most of us take for granted. Certainly easier than trying to understand it, I'm sure it breaks several laws of physics but then since when did we care about those around here?"

She shrugged, looking back down at her phone, "But unfortunately, you've caught me at a bad time to chat. I actually have a meeting with my publisher shortly, probably to implore me to sell my soul and write some dreadful teen-fic to make him a rich man. Phaw to that!" With an apologetic smile, Katherine stepped around to keep going, "Catch me around town if you'd like to talk, or want me to sign anything - I'm kind of a big deal, in my head, you see, so I always offer. Usually to a sporadic response of odd looks, awkward refusals and badly concealed chuckles." she joked, waving as she moved off, "A pleasure meeting you both, however briefly!"
