103 (who?)
6xl Application: Via the Sharpe-shooter by TheSemiLostWanderer 6xl Application: Via the Sharpe-shooter by TheSemiLostWanderer

Name: Olivia Sharpe
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Height: 5'6"
Personality: Via is very much an act-first-think-later kind of trainer. She doesn't listen to advice all that well, preferring instead to follow her own gut and just see where instinct takes her. Not a path for the faint of heart, but for gun-slinging, high-flying Via, it's the only way to live a life of adventure and freedom.
Brief History: Via's parents and older brother and sister are back at home in Cita Erbonde, where she grew up. But, bored with her life of order and formality, she begged and pleaded until her parents agreed to send her to live with her Grandfather, Obediah Sharpe, on the plateaus of Terran Alto. As a small 9-year-old, Via thought Grandpa Obie was this mythical figure made up of equal parts mystery, fear and awesomeness. He owned a ponyta ranch and did trick riding on his pokemon, Zeus the Charizard and Ares the Rapidash, for a living. The only way he could adapt to the addition of the young handful that was his granddaughter was to take her along on his shows, teaching her his tricks and providing her with her first pair of double-action ivory-handled revolvers to practice shooting. His gruff, cold exterior quickly melted beneath Via's obvious enthusiasm and dedicated study of the art form he loved.

However, his health was not up to the meager skills of a child-caretaker, and he passed away six years later, shortly after the passage of his beloved Rapidash. His remaining family sold the ranch and the remaining pokemon, but Via took Zeus before he, too, could be sold, and wandered off on her own, joining traveling rodeo shows or local fairs, making her living the same way Grandpa Obie had. Neither her siblings or her parents approved of her lifestyle, but she didn't care. Like her skills and her strongest pokemon, Obediah had also left his granddaughter with a fiercely stubborn attitude and a strong will to live her life free of forceful influences. It was her life to live, and she was determined to live it to the fullest.
Miscellaneous: Obediah also taught her how to play the harmonica, make pancakes, and lasso wild Tauros. Her best skill is sharpshooting. She uses Zeus for firearm-flying and Domino for speed-riding.


Name: Zeus
Species: Charizard (shiny)
Gender: Male
Nature: Bold
Characteristic: Quick-tempered
Ability: Blaze
Move Set: Inferno | Dragon Claw | Incinerate | Fire Pledge
Miscellaneous: Zeus is and always will be loyal to his first master, the one that trained him from a wee Charmander. And out of loyalty, he fights for and protects the small human that is his current master- even if she is clearly inferior to her grandsire. Zeus suffers from an incurable case of The Grumps, and absolutely loathes BS. He waits for the day the little human loosens her guard, lets her attention grow lax- all that fur can't be good for his digestion, but that's just a risk he's willing to take.

Name: BlackStar
Species: Luxray
Gender: Male
Nature: Calm
Characteristic: Thoroughly Cunning
Ability: Rival
Move Set: Crunch | Wild Charge | Night Slash | Thunder Fang
Miscellaneous: At best, BS can be considered mean- at worst, he's an ass. He enjoys teasing, taunting, and being a general nuisance, considering it a personal triumph when he can drive others to a foam-spitting fury. Sneaky and clever, he plays with his words just as accurately as he does his attacks. Zeus, being so prone to "blowing up" as it is, is one of BlackStar's favorite and most frequent targets.

Name: Domino
Species: Flygon
Gender: Male
Nature: Jolly
Characteristic: Likes to run (fly)
Ability: Levitate
Move Set: Sandstorm | Hyperbeam | Earth Power | Aerial Ace
Miscellaneous: As the newest and youngest member of the team, Dom is full of energy and optimism, ready to fight or fly or whatever else his master asks of him. He adores Via, and delights in the occasional moments when she lets him out of his pokeball to play and frolic among the clouds. Flying is his passion- if he didn't need to sleep and eat, he'd spend all day up in the air- and he takes pride in the fact that he's the fastest flier in all of Terran Alto. He often plays negotiator to BlackStar and Zeus whenever they get too heated in their arguments. His favorite food is pancakes.
