Basic Info
  • Species: Ruulan
    Monsters, humans, everyone; we all think, breath and feel. Isn't that what really matters?
  • Sex: Female
    Some call me the first Woman Pokemon Champion, but I prefer to believe I'm only the first to be recognized.
  • Age: 26
    I started my Pokemon Journey when I was very young. To think, so many years have passed...
  • Height: 6'2'' (1.88 meters)
    Sometimes, when I'm standing side by side with my Garchomp, I forget how tall I am for a moment.
  • Weight: 137lb (62 kg)
    As it turns out, my love of sweets--especially of the frozen variety--is no match for an active lifestyle.
  • Theme Music: Link
    One look at you tells me many things about you.
  • Battle Theme Music: Link
    I can sense strong power coming from your Poké Ball...


Personality
Shirona, otherwise known as Cynthia, tends to be a bit different from what People make her out to be. Her fans often refer to her as a "Cool, Level Headed Beauty" and more savvy fans would also say that she has a love for Pokemon Mythology and History--as well as fashion. Some of this is true; her taste in fashion is little more than personal preference and while she is usually "level headed" she does have her moments of passion. Shirona adores Pokemon, both their mythology and the pokemon themselves, and is a big fan of good literature. When she isn't reading she often goes off to explore the places she reads about; old ruins, remote crevices, ancient grounds... Her curiosity often dictates where she goes. When she isn't reading or exploring she has a tendency to just play and train with her pokemon. Shirona prefers not to keep her pokemon in their balls all day.Shirona dreams of a world where everyone smiles. She occasionally comes off as being oblivious and is easily distracted by a good snack or something curious related to pokemon.

Backstory
Everyone's story has a beginning, including Shirona's. Though she is often discreet about her past, Shirona occasionally throws others a 'bone' in the form of hints. For example she doesn't actually live in Sinnoh, nor was she born there. Her garchomp was also her first pokemon.

Battle Pokemon
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 78 / 100) [Moves = Outrage, Earthquake, Stone Edge, Swords Dance, Fire Blast, Stealth Rock]
    Shirona's first pokemon, Garchomp is also arguably her strongest. The two are very protective of each other. Much like Shirona herself, her garchomp loves sweets, particularly ice cream. She holds a focus sash.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Close Combat, Bullet Punch, Iron Tail, Aura Sphere, Dark Pulse, Swords Dance]
    Lucario may not be Shirona's first, but he's doubtlessly the pokemon on her team she's most in tune with. From the way she subconsciously dresses in a manner slightly resembling him to her affinity for auric power, it was only natural that Lucario would upset the competition when Shirona investigated Mega Evolution. Lucario holds lucarionite.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Sucker Punch, Foul Play, Pain Split, Will- O Wisp, Taunt, Destiny Bond]
    How Shirona came across such a rare and disconcerting pokemon is the subject of mystery. One thing is for sure, however, and that's that Spiritomb looks pretty rad wearing a pair of black shades.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Scald, Ice Beam, Attract, Recover, Haze, Dragon Tail]
    Some say Shirona's milotic is even more beautiful and level-headed than she is. ...What an odd thing to hear out of context!
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Air Slash, Aura Sphere, Nasty Plot, Roost, Thunder Wave, Heal Bell]
    Togekiss is Shirona's bundle of energy, good luck and happiness. To everyone else, he's the manifestation of Murphey's Law.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Blizzard, Shadow Ball, Water Pulse, Hidden Power Fighting, Wish, Roar]
    Shirona's glaceon is unusual in that it has the ability snow warning, meaning a hailstorm follows it whenever it goes into battle. What an ice queen.

Off-Hand Pokemon
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Leaf Storm, Sludge Bomb, Shadow Ball, Sleep Powder, Spikes, Toxic Spikes]
    Some roses have thorns. Roserade is far more than a mere rose.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Wild Charge, Dragon Tail, Fire Blast, Drain Punch, Coil, Zap Cannon]
    Eelektross has a face only a mother could love, but the terror she evokes is quite beautiful.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Brave Bird, Return, Superpower, Retaliate, Tailwind, U-Turn]
    When freedom screams it does so from the sky. Braviary wears a saddle made of courage that few could mount.
  • ImageImage
    (Power Level ≈ 76 / 100) [Moves = Scald, Earthquake, Recover, Stockpile, Toxic, Counter]
    The mountain and the river are hardly similar, however Gastrodon embodies both.

Aura
  • Limited Clairvoyance. Shirona can sense someone's actions slightly before they actually occur, giving her a noticeable edge to her reaction time. This does not work on the undead or other lifeless creatures, however. She also sees brief visions of the past. Visions of the future are rare.
  • Extrasensory Perception including the ability to see through obstacles, the ability to see while blinded, and the ability to sense the unique presences and power levels of others. Does not work on the undead or other lifeless creatures.
  • Bursts of strength in times of distress or danger.
  • And possibly even more in a pinch

So begins...

Wing City! There had been many 'Rumors' floating about this place, most of them entirely unpleasant and about how people where murdered and attacked by Armed Men regularly. There where other rumors, albeit more disturbing ones but she simply didn't allow them to bother her, no one had to see a place 'first hand' before they could honestly judge it. Rumors where often stretched or distorted as they went around from peer to peer. However the Former Sinnoh Champion and I strongly emphasize Former would proceed to exist a small bookstore, albeit with a small plastic bag filled with various novels and books, she always loved snooping through bookstores that sold used or old books as they would often carry things those 'newer' places wouldn't, they didn't desire to please any fad or sold specific genres that where in demand..so she could find things one would only find searching through library and was able to purchase and keep them for herself!

The writer apologizes as he hadn't gotten to RP in a while.

The Pressurized Sliding Blue Door that would lead one inside or out of the local Pokemon Center would seem to bzzt open, sliding to the side and what seems to be a Woman a Raven Black Overcoat or Trench would step outside, the cuffs of the trench seeming to be puffy and well furry, as well as the tail end and a matching black color of the same fur seemed to be around her neck. Underneath seemed to be a black t-shirt and upon her form was a pair of black dress pants and matching high heels. Long Aureolin Colored Hair would extend downward to bellow her rump and at the bends of her knees- a chill would surely run down her spine as the somewhat 'creepy' air of Lavender Town would overwhelm her after having left the more cheery and warm exterior Pokemon Center.

Those slate gray colored hues would seem to glance around slowly, aside from the 'Rumors' that had floated around Lavender Town or 'Stories' she had found to place to be one of 'interest', even though its where the dead are laid to rest it was nice to see people pay their respect to their dearest friends of 'companions'- it showed how deep the relationship between the Pokemon and Trainer truly was.

"How dare you come here and call our best and brightest to Arceus knows where with empty promises of power and glory, you fiend. Be gone with you," Titania growled at Glom, and went over to give him a knuckle sandwich. His only saving grace from this display of girl power was the clash of dragons over on Mt. Silver to the west. Upon seeing Rayquaza go down in flames, there was only one logical response for the veteran steel-type trainer.

She fainted. She simply collapsed onto the floor, overwhelmed by the moment. Or at least she would have, if not for a tall blonde woman dressed in black catching her before Titania could smack her head on the tile. Perhaps Iris would have a more cogent response to this crisis due to her youth allowing her to not jump to any wild conclusions. The blonde looked up.

"Champion Iris, please allow me to put out the fire. You, challenger, call the paramedics. Titania here gets priority, she can come join me when she comes around. I believe you have a public address to make," she added, gesturing towards the storm of TV reporters demanding a statement from the young president of the United Pokemon League regarding the incident.

And somewhere in the vast and unforgiving wilderness, part of which was still aflame despite the intervention of a cosmic entity, there was a little girl, alone and quite possibly afraid.

Kamon had hid behind a rock with his terrified charmander as the two titans fought in the sky. When he emerged from cover, the forest burned like a furnace. The young man pulled his collar over his mouth and coughed out a lung-full of smoke.

"Charmander!" he yelled through his collar. "Find us a way out of here, boy!"

"Char char!" the pokemon replied before darting off in a direction.

The trainer followed the pokemon in a brisk pace. He ducked beneath a flaming branch and blinked through the smoke. Kamon could see Charmander run beneath a low branch. It was too high to step over, so he attempted to crawl beneath it. With some difficulty he managed to come through unscathed.

Mmmaaa... chop.

"Charmander, did you hear that?" Kamon tried to peer through the smoke for the source of the faint whimper.

"Char? Char char!" exclaimed Charmander before leaping over a burning log. He blasted the log with ember. The two flames collided and snuffed each other out. Kamon haphazardly jumped over the log.

After navigating through the fire, Kamon discovered a machop pinned beneath a fallen tree. The pokemon gritted its teeth as it futily pushed up on the flaming tree. It fell limp and groaned.

"Charmander, use ember on that fire!" Kamon ordered as he rushed up to the pokemon. "Hey. Hey you. Come on. Wake up! Let's get you out of here..."

The machop slowly opened its eyes and nodded at Kamon. They both braced their hands against the fallen tree. Kamon pressed his legs into the dirt for extra leverage. Though the weight of the tree proved to great for the machop, the strength of both pokemon and trainer were able to roll the titan away. Machop attempted to rise, but stumbled to its knees.

"Here, I'll carry you..." Kamon said as he pulled machop onto his back in a fireman's carry. Machop groaned in pain, but smiled in appreciation.

Nathan sat on a rock in his human form, and looked at the forest around him as it burned. "This will not be the end of this forest." he muttered. He then stood and extended his hands to the sky, closing his eyes and taking deep, slow breaths. Clouds would start to appear, dark clouds, filled with rain. After the low roar of thunder, the rain began pouring down hard enough to contain the fire, and yet light enough so that the Charmander would be fine.

Nathan then put his hands in his pockets and walked down the side of the mountain and into the forest, unknowingly heading towards Kamon while doing so. As he walked, he seemed unaffected by the rain, as it went around him and left him dry. Any pokemon that grew slower, took damage, or grew faster from the rain would notice that these abilities did not affect them. And it was all because Rayquaza was here.

Nathan looked around after stopping and noticed that he was maybe twenty feet away from Kamon. The Charmander would notice his presence and turn to look at him, alerting his trainer to the new person.

Everything about Nathan screamed Rayquaza. His green hair, yellow eyes, and the pattern on his clothing just gave it away. The legendary pokemon in human form stared at the human trainer before him with his yellow eyes. After a few seconds, he would approach the human as he pulled the Machop out from under the log.

"You do know that you could get sick from being in the rain?" he asked. Though he was one to talk, he started the rain, but still didn't seem like the rain even touched him in the slightest.

He looked around. "Valorie ain't gonna like this..." he muttered to himself quietly. Valorie, the girl who caught him, loved pokemon and didn't like to see them get hurt. Her attitude had rubbed off on the Legendary Pokemon that now stood before a human in a human form.

Meanwhile....

The fabric of Space itself warped at the entrance to the cave in which Spyro The Dragon rested. The fabric of Space then opened to form a portal in the form of a Spiral Galaxy, and out of the portal was Spiral James, God of Space.

Dressed in his usual black suit and tie with matching shoes and pants, along with a white dress-shirt. On the surface of the suit's breast pocket a beautifully embroidered Spiral Galaxy glowed dimly with a divine power.

The God of Space approached Spyro and cleared his throat to get the Dragon's attention. The noise echoed throughout the cave, making plenty of noise for the purple Dragon to hear.

Shirona and Titania made their way through the trail of destruction, as it was well-documented that the latter didn't do so well on her own. "You really think there could be anyone out here?" Titania half-whined. "This place is supposed to be off-limits, unless the League has been especially permissive lately." Shirona just gave the other woman a sardonic look through her blonde locks as the snow practically rolled off of her long black coat. "You know as well as I do that IF someone is out here, we can't just leave them to die."

Then Titania looked up, seeing a familiar figure in a purple shirt. "Wait a sec...I know her. Never seen that mask before. Go, Klefki!" A Pokemon that looked like a key ring came out and floated on ahead to cut off the younger one. "Hey, disregarding the mask, her hair kinda reminds me of..." Titania was cut off as Shirona started climbing the rest of the way with athletic leaps and bounds. "You?"

"Yamask, release her!" Shirona cried as she approached Valorie. "She has to get out of here before an avalanche crushes us all!"

The other human that Valorie had seen was none other than Spiral James, the God of Space. He turned to the small female. "I'm merely healing your pokemon." he said with a bow before vanishing into thin air.

The Rayquaza then turned into a human, and looked up, and upon seeing Valorie, he blinked, and the snow stopped completely. There was no wind, no falling snow, only a warm ray of sunshine. "I was beginning to wonder when you'd show up." he said as he stood, his dark green hair giving away who he was. Nathan, Valorie's Rayquaza that she had caught herself.

The green haired human walked up to Valorie and smiled. "Do you remember me, Valorie?" he asked her. "It's me, Nathan." he added, just in case she had forgotten. "As for what I'm doing here...." he scratched the back of his head. "Did you see the chaos above this mountain? Yea...that was me." he said, talking about his fight with Spyro.

Valorie stood there for a moment as Spiral James seemed to vanish. To what sorcery did she owe this? Whom had that been, ...a ghost of some poor traveler that had come up here and never come down? She was rather unfazed by the lack of snow, mostly because she was well aware of -why-...

"Of course I remember you..." she utters in a confused, ghostly tone. How could she forget..? Finding no wounds to heal, apparently, the small girl's head turns to acknowledge Cynthia's words in quick succession. "Who--Nngh..." she starts in an accusing tone, abruptly trailing off as at least one of the two minds sharing that body recognized who was speaking to them. She seemed to freeze up for a moment as an internal conflict resolved itself. The mask adorning Valorie's face soon did pop off, revealing her to be quite disorientated as she regained a more full control of her senses. Shu the yamask now quickly retreated to her shadow, where he vanished from sight.

"Avalanche.... what?" Valorie asks in a disorientated manner, clearly slightly out of it.

"This is bad. She's got altitude sickness...and put your little key ring away, Titania!" Shirona yelled down at her compatriot. "We have to get you someplace safe and warm," the black-robed woman explained as she took one of Valorie's frigid hands into her own and picking out a way down for the two of them. "Make sure to step where I step. I dunno if I can hold you if you slip, OK?"

Meanwhile, Titania was busy rigging a climbing harness on herself to ascend in a more methodical manner. "I'll meet you halfway, Shirona. Klefki, return," the mechanic cried. "You come down, I'll come up, and I'll literally meet you halfway. There's a center not too far from the foot of the mountain. I don't think we have enough time to go to Viridian, we'll have to hole up." A little closer...closer... "Got her. Shirona, jump down and belay me." Not only did the archaeologist jump down, she also did a full 360 off of a tree branch before dismounting. "Cute," was all Titania had to say about it before the rumbling started.

"Yup. Quickly, into the Pokemon Center, everyone!" The three of them had barely enough time to get in. Not even enough to bar the automatic doors. The snow crashed down, burying the center and spilling snow into the lobby. Everyone that managed to find shelter in this particular red roofed building was not going anywhere for quite some time...

"Digging out won't do any good, it'll just invite more snow inside," was Titania's first spoken thought. She bent down to Valorie. "Shirona, give her your coat, she needs to warm up." "Heck no, I need it too," the taller woman protested. "Then the two of you will just have to learn how to share."

Shirona sighed. Ever since the incident with Ahriman, Titania had become something of a mother figure. "Fine."

What happened next was basically of complete surprise and rapid succession to Nathan, whom everyone except for Valorie seemed to notice. He found that odd because it's not hard to miss a guy with green hair.

Regardless of that, he knew they were there to help, and fought the urge to simply take Valorie and fly her to safety himself. He instead followed all of the females, and when they descended a cliff of some sort he merely jumped off, stopping himself so that he landed softly on the snow and ran to the pokemon center, getting there before the human females did.

The doors of the center tried to close but the snow was too quick and some got into the lobby. Despite this, Nathan felt comfortable. One, he was used to the humanoid form he was in, two his trainer, Valorie, was nearby, and three, it was warm inside the pokemon center, which caused the green haired humanoid with yellow eyes to smile a little bit.

Now that he was inside, he could be seen clearly as well. He stood at about six feet in height as a human. Had green hair that had a yellow ring in it, similar to how it was when he was in his true form. He wore a green outfit that had designs similar to his scales in his Rayquaza form. Really, it was as if he wasn't trying to hide at all.

He looked at everyone in the room one at a time before blinking and walking over to where Valorie was. "Are you going to be alright?" he asked her, an obvious tone of concern in his voice, which sounded deceivingly calm at the moment.

The small woman was grabbed and led along, rather confused as to what was going on up until she was dragged over to a more familiar face. She attempted to open her mouth, but her brain was elsewhere and she found herself searching for words that would not come readily. Instead she hastily struggled to keep up with Shirona on account of her small legs. As the situation became quickly more urgent by the sound of it Valorie became aware that she was expected to... rappel. A flood of doubt crossed her mind at the prospect. She decidedly refrained from commenting for once in her life as the other took her on as dead weight.

How the decades had humbled her...

Things flew by fast, and a more focused Valorie emerged into the pokemon center in the nick of time with the others. She was now more fully aware of the world around her, enough to realize they were trapped and accept it without protest. Rather, the tiny woman offered the much larger women a half-hearted smile as if to reassure them. "I'm fine..! The cold isn't that bad." she remarks in spite of the frost that clung to her clothes from her climb. If she was in pain, she wasn't showing it.

Valorie hesitated a moment to take in the fact that Nathan had in fact followed them. She eyed him with a satisfied look on her face before beckoning him to her side. It was unclear why; perhaps she just wanted to be close to him. Valorie glanced between the two champions that stood before her.

"What were you doing up here..?" the random, inconsequential trainer then asked in an innocently curious tone as if oblivious to the fact that it was her out of everyone in that room that had seeming no reason to be there.

A beam of light penetrated the pokemon center, hitting the floor and expanding into two forms that quickly faded into their original color. It was none other than a gardevoir and a zoroark... What an odd couple! Valorie at least was a tad startled by this, turning her somewhat confused gaze on the pair. She opened her mouth to speak but couldn't quite find the question she wanted to ask.

Myra's telepathic voice was audible to humans. "There." she stated simply, her eyes sweeping the room. She noted Titania's presence, recognizing her visually though her aura did not quite resemble that of what she'd been 'exposed' to earlier. Yet, almost immediately her eyes were drawn to Valorie's.

Those eyes...

Shimmering with the colors of the polar auroras and twinkling with the lights of the stars under a moonlit sky Valorie's supernatural eyes seemed to captivate Myra. Seemingly unable to break her gaze Myra's eyes locked onto Valorie's, narrowing briefly and then widening as something seemed to surprise her. Her fingers fidgeted and her body seemed tense as if she were struggling with something internally... or perhaps even scared.

Valorie, of course, was oblivious to what was going on and simply met Myra's gaze curiously with mild concern at the other's odd behavior. It was as if they were having a staring contest and Valorie had just used glare.

Nathan moved to Valorie's side after she beckoned him towards her, and stood closely, his hands in the pockets of his pants as he stood, watching Valorie and everything happening around them. "How have you been since our last meeting?" he asked gently, a small smile on his face.

His eyes hardened when he looked to the door as a beam of light entered and hit the floor. He removed his hands from his pockets and he stared at the two figures that appeared from the light. "Valorie... do you know these two?" he asked, glancing at his trainer for a second before looking back at the Gardevoir and the rather large Zoroark.

He noted the reaction from the Gardevoir as she looked at Valorie, and tilted his head slightly. For now he stood still, nonchalant, yet ready to transform and destroy any who would harm his trainer. Nathan continued to stand where Valorie had beckoned him to, watching, and waiting.

Tungsten recognized at least one face right away. He turned to Titania. "Hello, mother. It's been a while." This naturally freaked the crap out of Shirona. "M-mother? Surely he's just being...affectionate?" All the blonde got from the mechanic was a sad shake of her head.

"Nope. Sorry, but it's all true...not that you aren't prime mothering material yourself," Tungsten shot with a snide grin at the former Sinnoh champion, to an audible cry of disgust. "It's a long and sordid tale. But seeing as we're snowed in, it looks like I've got nothing but time. That, and...I can feel strength radiating from you, Human in black. You will be a stalwart defender against the storm to come. I know, prophecy isn't my type's bag, but if I know my family, they will pick up right where my late father left off. Share that strength with others when you can. No Human female of child-bearing age will be safe from them."

The nurse at the counter fainted right into her Chansey at this, who didn't look so good herself at these harsh but truthful words as the staring contest between Myra and Valorie continued.

"So, seeing as my Gardevoir friend here seems occupied, would you like to hear the full story of what happened to your friend?" Tungsten asked Shirona. "If I want it, I'll get it from her perspective," she shot back. "That, and I'm going to want my coat back soon."

"Ah, but how rude of me to forget my manners," Tungsten hastily added before indulging in a brief bow. "Hail and I greet you, Rayquaza, master of the skies. If I may be so bold, to what do I owe the blessing of your presence among these lowly land-dwellers?"

Valorie just sort of slowly became aware of a disturbing conversation going on. Her eyes shifted uncomfortably in Tungsten's general direction. "I--No..." she replied to Nathan in an entirely nervous tone. She didn't like the sound of this at all, and the worst of it was that she was pretty confident this wasn't the first time someone had brought something like this up.

Something more pressing than disturbing conversations was demanding her attention however. It was that gardevoir's stare. Myra was beginning to shudder in a rather violent manner as if being blasted by an intense gale. She seemed repulsed, bothered... and then the rage came.

Like an eruption Myra suddenly gained intense focus coupled with equally intense anger. "You will not brainwash -me-, WITCH!" the pokemon cried out in bitter indignation with hints of agony in her tone. Without warning she had mentally reached out and seized Valorie's throat without moving an inch. She immediately yanked the poor girl into the air without warning. "I know what you are!!" Myra roared as she completely disregarded everyone else in the room in favor of doing her best to simultaneously hang and throttle her victim right there in the middle of the pokemon center.

Tungsten reacted with alacrity at Myra's outburst, dashing forward with a Thief attack to break the Gardevoir's concentration while at the same time trying to rip the sword out of her grasp. "I enlisted your help to PROTECT humans," he snarled. "Now put her down before I rip that head off of your shoulders!"

Titania just watched with terror in her eyes. This was the same sort of rage she had witnessed once before, when Ahriman met his end. She unconsciously drew up next to Shirona as if hiding behind the taller woman, who returned the gesture while watching silently, still ready to act if the battle came their way. But the Chansey nurse had other plans entirely, tossing out a Softboiled in the airborne girl's direction to buy time while letting the battle play out right there in the lobby. She was something of a pacifist, after all.

"I don't know what you saw, and I don't fucking care. There are more worthy targets for that anger of yours!"

Nathan looked at Tungsten as he spoke, and nodded in greeting. "You do not owe any honor to anyone, Zoroark. I am merely here to protect my Trainer." he said. He needn't gesture to who he was talking about, as Valorie was but less than a foot away.

At Myra's outburst, Nathan growled loudly before vanishing and reappearing behind the Gardevoir by using Extreme Speed. He appeared behind, his hand in a claw-like position and held back as if to strike through the heart. A hand tightly gripped the Gardevoir's left shoulder towards the neck without choking her.

"Try it again. See what happens. You wouldn't be the first Gardevoir I've eaten alive." he said rather darkly, his voice teeming with negative emotion. Unless called off by Valorie, or someone whom he recognized as an Authoritative figure, he would not move, but he would not strike either.

But damn, did he want to...

Myra did not seem... 'impressed' by Nathan's reaction. In fact she seemed sluggish to so much as acknowledge him as if her mind was in a distant place. The woman looked up at Nathan only to be struck by Tungsten as she turned her head. Valorie lurched in the air as Myra was momentarily startled before abruptly dropping with a thud. The unfortunate girl emitted sputtering cough-gasps where she laid, just sort of curling up a bit as she tried to recover from the rather vicious attack.

Myra meanwhile seemed to take the attack with a certain amount of grace, recoiling only as much as she had to. Seeming to snap back into focus she merely stared Tungsten down as he spoke to her, glancing quietly at Nathan and the nearby humans briefly as if pondering the situation. It was only after the both of them had made their threats that she spoke.

"Judgement day will not fail to practice justice simply because it is not convenient." Myra warned venomously, eyeing Tungsten and her stolen heirloom in particular as she said this. "...But I suppose none of you would know anything about that. Have it your way..." she then quickly added, her tone of voice abruptly becoming cold, distant, ...and resentful.

Her gaze shifted downwards as if averting her eyes, yet not quite just enough to completely avert them. She turned said gaze on Tungsten, almost expectantly...

As Valorie fell to the floor and tried to recover from her attack, Nathan's instincts as a loyal and caring Pokemon kicked in and he immediately went to his trainer, kneeling beside her and trying to get her to sit up and breath slowly. "Please tell me you're alright." he spoke with a gentle tone that showed that he cared deeply for his trainer's well-being.

After a few minutes, Nathan's face hardened, as did his voice. "Zororark!" he barked, looking at Tungsten. "Keep your little girlfriend under control or I swear to the highest power there is that I will not let both of you see the light of day again." he growled darkly. He still held onto Valorie as he said this, but his grip on her remained gentle and soothing.

Tungsten snarled at Myra. "Fine. Here's your little keepsake," he grunted and returned the sword. "I don't know what you saw, but that's no excuse to attack a Human like that. My apologies, lord of the skies, it won't happen again."

Shirona nodded. "Agreed. Now is not the time to be at each other's throats. We're snowed in, the heat's gonna fail any minute..."

"Excuse me," Tungsten interrupted. "Flamethrower much? And I do believe at least one of us can keep the generator running thanks to their Magnezone. Let's just hope our food stores last until some hiker digs us out."

Titania had something else to say. "What about stuff to burn FOR heat? What are we going to do there? As for staying warm, I guess jumping jacks are out of the question. For me, at least." She fell into deep thought. "Val, any ideas, or do you need a minute after getting throttled? If you got nothing, we could have Claw dig us out, but I don't know if we can get away with opening the door and letting in the snow."

Myra reached out and grasped the sword by it's scabbard, pulling it close to her chest and hugging it to her in a rather possessive manner. She seemed to condemn Tungsten with her eyes, but quickly averted them. She floated several feet away, seeming to inspect the blade as if looking for damage, having gone completely quiet.

Valorie gently grasped at her throat, gingerly testing how sore it was where she lay, red marks where she had been mildly bruised. As Nathan moved in and grasped her she seemed to start slightly as if afraid he were going to hurt her. This of course didn't last long as the jumpy girl realized what was going on. She sat up in the other's grasp, emitting a less than thrilled groan. "I could really use a drink." she replied only half-humorously, really not into the whole being a damsel in distress thing. Flashing a glare in the gardevoir's direction Valorie shakily picked herself up, allowing herself to lean back against Nathan and enjoy the comfort of knowing he was there to prevent further harm from coming to her. She was silently debating what to do about the apparently dangerous pokemon. Was she really expected to just leave her there after she'd done that? That pokemon had tried to kill her! She was bitter, angry even.

"..."

It was only Titania's voice that distracted her. "Uh--" Valorie started, taken off-guard. "...Back when I was kidnapped by Team Rocket and lost in the mountains, I cuddled up with my tyrunt for warmth..." she offered, somewhat subtle shyness in her tone. "I guess Charizard would be a lot warmer." she offered rather meekly.

Nathan smiled softly as Valorie slowly rose to her feet, proving that she was okay. When she leaned against him, he blinked, allowing her to do so while putting a gentle arm around her body to help her feel safe.

He looked to Tungsten and was quiet for a moment before speaking. "Make sure that it doesn't." he said, shooting a glare filled with hard, negative emotions at Myra again before looking away and relaxing his face, his emotions softening.

For a moment, he removed his arm from around Valorie, only to stretch himself out before replacing his arm gently around her body, not holding her to him, but providing a small barrier to let her know that he would protect her, not that she didn't already know that.

When she mentioned cuddling with a Tyrunt, Nathan sensed her shyness and looked down at her slowly. Even through his jacket, he could feel that she was cold. Wait, his jacket! Once again removing his arm from around his trainer he removed his jacket, revealing a long-sleeved shirt. He would place his jacket on the shoulders of Valorie. The inside of the jacket would be nice and warm from Nathan's body heat, which was almost constantly the same temperature no matter where he was because of him being what he is, and constantly wearing the jacket whilst in human form.

Shirona seemed stunned at this sudden turn of events, and pulled out a beaten and battered Pokedex from a pocket of her longcoat. "Gardevoir. The Embrace Pokemon. It can expend all of its psychic energy to create a black hole in defense of its Trainer." Great, that tells me nothing about why she went hostile, she thought and turned her attention to Valorie. "Easy, there. Easy. It's gonna sting for a while, but that's just your body getting back into its normal shape. But I have no idea what could have set her off." Shirona made sure to look into Valorie's eyes for signs of a possible concussion. Instead of a concussion however, she would be immediately exposed to the effects of those magically imbued aurora eyes. They had a sort of temporary therapeautic effect, primarily calming and soothing in nature. One would need to be careful not to stare excessively long, or they might find themselves put to sleep!

Yeah, sleep was the last thing Shirona wanted to do when trapped in this avalanche. Sleep was death. Hearts needed to be beating constantly, people needed to stay warm. And with a Pokemon she didn't recognize standing right there, even talking the language of humans. What was going ON today? First the incursion, now talking Pokemon. Absurd in every sense of the word. "Well, if one of us had a fire-type on hand we could try using them to build a fire. But indoors...hm."

Titania had another answer in her typically brash manner. "Go, Claw! Dig us out of this snow job!" The Excadrill nodded, still woozy from taking a flare blitz to the face, and welcomed the chance to apply some nice ice to his burns. Digging a way out of the drifts was a bonus. He was in his element. Sort of. Valorie stood by and puzzled over the dynamics of tunneling through snow without it crashing down behind you and Shirona was bold enough to voice these concerns. Almost as if the two blondes had made a psychic link just by locking eyes. Valorie, mildly surprised, glanced briefly up at Shirona. Titania explained it was all about stopping to make sure the tunnel was structurally sound, and that was a matter of the shape of the tunnel. She was quickly proven wrong when Claw let out a distinctly human swear word as snow proved to be a different medium than solid earth. "Well, darn. At least he can whittle it down, move it out of the way, right?" Shirona suggested. "My Garchomp could help too. He doesn't care much for the cold, but many hands make light work."

Tungsten had something else to say. "Course. Burning it down isn't an option because I wouldn't want to get my precious fur wet," he said mockingly. Instead he just honed his claws and joined the team effort. "Oy, land shark, watch where you're puttin' those fins of yours, you damn near took out my good eye," he shot at Shirona's prize specimen.

"Why don't you girls have a snowball fight or somethin'? That'll get everyone going, right?"

"Hey, yeah, a snowball fight could be fun. Of course, Myra would cheat by using her psychic powers," Titania commented, making a playful expression indicating that she wasn't opposed to the idea. Beat the heck out of jumping jacks for her curvy frame. "What do you think, Val?" ...The small girl blinked, just sort of standing there a moment as if not quite sure she'd heard that right. She then shrugged, reaching up and placing a single hand on Nathan to signal him to give her a bit of space. As much as she appreciated his closeness, it -did- make her an easy target! "I kind of came up here looking for someone, but I guess your plans don't always turn out the way you thought~" she remarked rather casually.

Why was she up here in this entirely unsafe mountain again? Myra simply shot a bitter look in the group's direction, just long enough to get noticed. She wanted no part of this.

"Oh, loosen up, Gardevoir," Cynthia commented as she launched the first attack at Myra's noggin. The war was on.

Nathan stood still, his eyes tired, but alert at the same time. He watched the entire group, and said nothing. He looked at the other Pokemon again recalling what he knew about them in case something were to happen. His focus on the other Pokemon was disrupted by a gentle hand being placed upon him.

He looked down and looked at Valorie, blinking once or twice before reluctantly removing his arm from around her body to give her some space. He then yawned and wandered over to a chair that sat in a dark corner of the Pokemon Center and sat in it, closing his eyes for some rest.

He was still tired from his fight with Spyro, after all.

Splat! A Snowball rolled down Myra's head.

...The snowballs flew. Valorie, with her tiny body, could not really compete against grown women and spiteful pokemon. Weak throws and an inability to form a good snowball plagued her as she tried to scurry off to cover behind the pokemon center's desk, only for a specific gardevoir to seize the opportunity and bury Val under a nice, giant snowball after a bit.

Myra didn't even crack a smirk. She almost seemed disappointed.

She half-heartedly whipped a couple of snowballs back at the others, but soon completely lost interest in even defending herself. It turned out she wasn't really a great playmate it seemed. As the flurry of snow died down Myra settled down in a seat. A small hand burst from the blob of snow behind the pokemon center counter and a gasp for air was heard as Valorie struggled to pull her way free from the snow, pulling her head over the edge of the counter before allowing herself to stop and take a breath, shivering furiously with a lame expression on her face. She was, of course, quietly resenting her physical condition--Not that anyone in the room had any way of understanding her angst.
