Important Family Details (no on-site relations):

General Family Descriptions


An old family that has spanned many species and many decades in the Grima camps. The camps have essentially become their home at this point; they accept debt as their reality and  live as best they can in the conditions they've been dealing with. They don't identify with any life or roots outside of Grima anymore. They embrace the family castes; in fact they've likely been around the camps nearly as long as the particular system has been. They aren't especially staunch about the rules like some purist families and families from newer generations are though. They've lived with it so long that it's second nature to them, and they practice the traditions liberally.


A family of Lycanroc and Arbok. Once a smaller family family from Rainfront Town that went under when their buisness failed, they have now been in the camps for four generations trying desperately to get out of their forebearer's debt. They entered the camps during a particularly bad depression, when conditions in the already crude labor camps took a sharp turn for the worst. During this time, the caste system picked up in popularity as a method of keeping order and distributing rations, and many newer families rushed blindly to embrace it at the encouragement of older practitioners. The Fonseca continue to respect the tradition very seriously; placing high importance in the well-being of the family (mostly as a way of justifying whatever is necesary to get themselves out of the camps).


A family of Blaziken and Ambipom with a small amount of wealth, also from Rainfront Town. They were ordinary in terms of family traditions; they had never been in debt so they had never attended the Grima labor camps, thus they had never been exposed to the family caste system that was founded by the poor workers there. Being a relatively small family, only an older couple, their children, and their grandchildren were still established in the town. The elder man and his two children passed away in an accident, leaving only the grandmother and the couple's only son. The tiny wealth they had disappeared as soon as the son took up gambling; effectively snuffing out their name as one of note in the town.

Family Member Descriptions

Contained Here:

» Personality: Telma is a wild, no-filter type of Pokemon at heart, but she's only completely comfortable acting that way around Pokemon who were at or around her age. She was raised in a mildly conservative family in an age cast culture, so she was taught that there were specific ways to act around Pokemon who were either older or younger than her. This conditioning has largely faded in the wake of her wilder, independent life. Some behaviors, such as being silent and respectful around elders or restrained and responsible (and sometimes patronizing) around younger Pokemon, still resurface, but it's largely dependent on who exactly she's interacting with. Pokemon who are her age always have been and always will be fair game. Though she functions as a loner, this strong tie to a nuclear family makes her want to be around other pokemon and she will seek them out when her whims drive her to. She will seek specific pokemon out tenaciously if she feels like she has "a real connection" with them. Nobody but Telma knows exactly what that means.
As a Vigilante and as a person, Telma is driven by an inner conflict of law and justice. Generally, she agrees that justice is paramount, and though the purpose of law is to serve justice even though it often falls short. However the importance of culture in her childhood taught her that some laws differ based on the thoughts of the people, and the spirit of that should be respected (though she doesn't always obey them herself). As evidenced by her indecision on such a fundamental part of her life, Telma acts in highly contradictory ways that can even make her out to be a hypocrite (which, to some extent, she is). She doesn't see anything wrong with this; adaptation has been the thing that has gotten her to this point and she subscribes to it as a survival strategy. Despite these morally heavy inner workings, Telma comes across as a hyper goof. This is in some part to who she is naturally, and it is also a manifestation of the freedom she feels while no longer being under the burden of responsibility to the family caste and those who are younger than her.
Telma is highly motivated; sometimes to the extent of being a downright workaholic. She feels paranoid and stressed out if she's not actively pursuing a case or a paycheck, a trait that also roots itself in her upbringing. She still feels a need to provide something; she constantly has the nagging feeling that things will build up exponentially if she isn't constantly doing something about it. When this feeling is really bothering her, she'll be noticeably depressed and aggressive.
On top of all of this, Telma is also terrible with money. This may not be something you'd expect from a child from a family with negative finances to their names, but it is a habit that is deeply rooted in the mechanics that shaped her personality. What money she doesn't send to contribute to her family's debt she considers her own, and is more than happy to do with it however she pleases. She feels like if she made it through so much of her life without money, she can make it through life now as she gets it. She'd rather have the experiences, items, and other goods that improve her life rather than hang on to some cash. Not to mention, it's heavy and it's a burden.


"O que? You want an' interveiw? Ai!, Ui!, Ai de mim; it mus' be SOME kinda bad news day if you're eager to chat with a resident of the local outlaw board to get a story in. ....That bein' said....... Fire away! Haven't had someone come to me to talk in a long time, an' I never been in a paper before! Ya gonna put a picture of me in with it or somethin'? I've never had a picture taken either! Alright alright, where do we start?"

» Likes:
Vigilanteism -

"You wanna know why I like what I do? Well, uh, I hate to be the smartass that nobody asked for, but I like watchin' criminals go down. Gettin' what they deserve, yadda yadda add another appropriate cliche here. In some cases, I like to make sure they get more than a little scolding, a swat on the wrist, and a little sit in the naughty naughty no-no corner. There's not a whole lot more to it than that; if you're gonna screw things up you gotta do your part to make it right again, no matter who you are. ......Oooooh, you wanna know why I like what I do more than, like, mercenary work? .....Well, yes I'm different from a mercenary! Little offensive, doncha think? Well, in any case, the major difference between me n' a mercenary is that I don't need money to work, 'least I think so. 'Course, I gotta take some payed jobs 'cause I'm not made o' money like the clowns in the comic books; an' this is just the best way to enjoy ekein' out a livin'. I'm tryin' to help out at the end of the day..... but I ain't really the cop-y type, if you catch my drift. I like having the freedom to clean out the mold and dirt that slips between the cracks, the stuff that your mom says 's fine because no one'll see it anyways. ......Well, yes. I am aware that I too have a nasty little habit of lawbreakin' myself on the occasion; it's an unfortunate part of the job description. I'll find a way to live with myself; prob'ly won't have to for long anyways."

Living Unrooted (Anarchy) -

"Laws're a necessary part of keeping any place sane and functionable, I'll give anybody that. But I'd reckon that there's just as much a need for the opportunity to rule one's self. Liberdade, sim? Everybody deserves to have a chance at a life that feels natural to them. You get your ass trapped too far down South and you end up owin' anybody anything down there, then you're basically a slave. Just squatting your life away on borrowed land so someone else can eat the dinner you're haulin' rocks for. Can't even call your life your own, really. How can you justify a kid born to pay the dues of a relative so old the bones don't even exist anymore?
...If they didn't have bones to begin with? Alright, listen here smartass...
...Fine, fine, I won't get off topic if you don't distract me. Anyways, sure, I prefer life untethered. After livin' in an indentured community I don't trust nobody to govern my life for me. Would you? I think no; years of watchin' your family exploited relentlessly kinda takes that capacity right outta you. I fully accept that I can't live in any town or city because I just don't wanna have to live by their rules, and if I'm not gonna play nice then I don't deserve to live there. I want all the rights I wasn't allowed to have back home and if I gotta live on my own to get 'em? That's no skin off my nose. Yeah, I'm aware that makes me a big ugly hypocrite in the big scheme of things, but I tend to think it makes me more qualified for the job. Who better to hunt the defectors than a defector themselves? ...Aside from all that heavy stuff though, I also appreciate the peace of mind that comes from livin' alone. Ain't gotta worry 'bout a tax, or a boss man yellin'. When I'm alone I can just relax and be with my thoughts, and when I'm with people they're people I'm choosin' to be with. Ain't no opinion more reliable than my own, and there ain't a form of getting screwed over more refreshing than screwing yourself over. There're plenty of bright-eyed explorers out there; they can be my neighbors. Don't desire havin' a house when there's them and caves all over the place.

Drinking/Partying -

"Drinking is my favorite sport.
It absolutely is a sport. And I'm great at it. There ain't a soul out there that can drink like I do. Some might drink more, and some might certainly drink faster, but they don't have half the charisma I've got when I dip into the sauce. Nine times outta ten I'm bringin' something entertaining to the bar when I go. Granted, five of those nine times it's a bar fight. I think. My statistics are based on mostly blurs so I can't 100% confirm that, it could be more or maybe less. In my defense, I'm not typically lookin' to start trouble. I just don't wanna be the shmuck at the end of the bar drinking alone, yeah? That's how alcoholism starts. When I go out, I'm going out because I want to have a good time, just like everyone else who wants to have a social drink. That's kind of the beauty of bars, actually. Best place for me to meet people when they're already looking to forget the night and they're too drunk to recognize me (usually both of those at the same time). The fights tend to counteract that whole idea a little bit when they happen; but hey, not every night has to turn out crazy. Like I said, it's not my goal to cause a big fuss when I go into an establishment. Its just nice to go into a place and just watch a show with some happy strangers, or sing some songs and throw around cards or whatever. It's a nice outlet for everything that builds up when one works in my particular profession. I'm aware that some folks like to enjoy their drinks alone, and that's fine and all. I wouldn't make an effort to start something with someone like that. The way I see it though, if you're making the trouble to go to a public place then the point of the whole endeavor is to have fun and meet some folks. Otherwise, what are you even there for??

Loyalty/Family Bonds -

"My family was the only thing that shared my name ever. I never had a single possetion that I owned; never could rely on the presence of material belongin's. I had my family, though. I had my people, and we had out name, and that's the only damn thing what mattered. You don't cross family, even if sometimes you don't feel to pleased with them. Even 'f you feel like you're just dealin' with 'em, guess what? They're dealin' with you, too. 'N they don the decency to not fuck with you, because they trust you - gotta have trust goin' both ways to have stable relationships. ...What was my family like? Had a lot more structure 'n families I see out here, that's for sure. ...What defines a family? Ha ha! You'll feel it. ...No, blood don't mean shit. I said you'll feel it."

Happy Endings -

"The only thing that can make me cry nowadays is a good happy ending. I cry at weddings. I cry at birthdays. I cry at Christmas. Sometimes I cry when I see kids. Hell I'll cry at your bar mitzvah. There's just somethin' about the moment where everything comes together that just tears me up inside, y'know? These things were always few an' far between, and now that I get to see loads more of them I jus' can't stand it. It's just that good to know that sometimes things work out for the best. Sometimes things even work out for the best for me. Sometimes I deserve that, too."

» Dislikes:
Targeted/Exploitative Crime and Systems-

"Apodrecem no inferno.
....Sounds harsh, but I'm serious. Sometimes it depends on the kind, an' who they're stealing from. I can make a few exceptions here an' there, but generally? {expletive} them and the dirty ground they walk on. Dirtiest form of bleeding the earnest dry.
...Man I really want to say all that and mean it from the bottom of my heart, but I can't judge all of 'em. Not every situation is the same; an' sometimes the law begs to be broke. ...Hell, I can't say my paws are fully squeaky. Doin' the right thing don't always mean doin' the right thing by the law... but that don't justify every pocket-picker with a bug up their ass and a mind that they own this place! When it comes right down to it, I dunno if it can justify me either. I just gotta keep puttin' one paw in front of the other believein' that it does, at least until proven guilty. Hey, has anyone ever told you you got a fantastic future in bein' a shrink?

The Law-

"...Yeah, I guess it would make sense that I'm not a huge fan of the law, heh. I'm sayin' it cause it's important though. I certainly don't think that the law itself is unimportant, mind you. On the contrary, I think it's a necessary evil. Pokemon in big groups need some kinda gov'rnence to get along, right? Otherwise we wouldn't have no peace, ever! But the problem with the law, is eventually the law gets old. It worked for a while, and maybe it still works for some people, but eventually it stops workin' for others an' they get hurt. Lotta times, though, people won't change the law becuase it's the law. How's that right? And then you got the people who get into power and abuse the law, or the people that the law didn't account for when it was made. Long story short: we need the laws. But they also make us suffer. Eventually, they get old and broken and if someone don't fix them, it's up to someone (or a whole lot of someones) to make a big noise until somethin' gets done 'bout it.
...Trust me, I came from one o' the places the law forgot. I know what the worst of it looks like. I'm try'na give the benefit of the doubt now that I'm comin' into places where the law's s'pposed to be better, but... it's gonna be a hard tick to loose.


"This is more a minor gripe than anything, but my pet peeve is people who can't take a joke, y'know? People who can't lighten up 'bout shit or even just have a nice string of interactions. I mean, just how in the world do antisocials get along day by day?? How do they cope with that naggin' feeling like your an ant jus' waitin' to be squished all on your lonesome? Every mon's gotta have someone around to spill their guts to when the world gets tough, else that shit will stack right up and turn you into a certified looney. I worry for antisocials more than anyone else, I think. ...Okay definitely not true, but I do at least make an effort to bother them. For their sake. Sure I think it's pointless, but I didn't get here but not tryin'! I'm jus' playin' the part of the person givin' them the nudge, they can decide whether or not to do anything with it."

Psychic Abilities -

"Now let me be clear about this one: I AM NOT SAYIN' I MIND PSYCHIC TYPES ANY MORE OR LESS THAN ANYONE ELSE. Type barely even occurs to me when I'm considerin' a pokemon's character... But honestly, don't summa those "out of body" abilities skeeve you out too? Mind-readin', fortune tellin', future seein', levatatin'... All of those thing can happen to you without your consent just cause some fella decided he wanted to do it. Eugh. I don't like the idea of any of anything being done to my body or mind without my say-so; I worked hard just to get all of it to this point! Not only that, but those kind of powers make it unfairly easy to scam your neighbor. I've seen what happens when it happens, and it is not good. I'm not sayin' I don't appreciate how helpful they can be or how much good they can do but, eh, not my cup of tea."

"Man, that was a hoot! Are you sure ya don't need anythin' else? You want an' autograph to tack on at the end there? ...Well no, I don't know how you'd get an autograph into a newspaper. That's fair. When can I expect to be seein' this thing come out? I gotta send a copy to my folks; they'll die when they see this!!! -ouch. bad choice of words."

» Other: As Boa Sorte, she'll roll in dirt to muddy the color of her fur. She wears a bandana and a serape with her brimmed hat tipped forward to conceal her identity. She'll take off the serape and tip the hat back (or occasionally replace it with the bandana when she's just acting casual, depending on the situation. She treats the Boa Sorte persona as more of a brand than a second identity; she doesn't consider Telma and Boa as different personalities (evidenced by the fact that she acts pretty much the same no matter what name she's being called. She does get a little more hyped up and excited when she's working however, and she plays up her eccentricity a bit more when she's out in her vaquero attire so it's harder to distinguish her in a crowd when she's out in public in vigilante fashion.
Also, due to the stigmas in her upbringing, I imagine she's grown very opposed to both the forms of Lycanroc that she's come to know. For this reason I imagine she feels a lot of stress about her eventual evolution, since she both doesn't want to choose either but also feels she needs to because she wants to be able to stay caught up with the criminals she chases in terms of strength. I believe this, is what contributes to/triggers her possible evolution into dusk form.
Disclaimer- First Person is out of form for the site and was used in an artistic manner only to depict the character more clearly. This will not carry over into roleplay form as it infringes on the rules and would be incohesive and confusing.
