Appearance: Fio looks fairly similar to your standard Fomantis, with the exception of her head-bulb being white. She has a light green scarf that she’s tied around her forehead, just under her foliage.
"I hope I can make a difference somewhere, help people…all that good stuff!"
Ability: Leaf Guard (Immune to Status Ailments during harsh sunlight)
Aromatherapy (Egg Move)
Guild Rank: Recruit
Equipment: Fio currently has a bag only containing a bottle of water for emergency hydration.
Personality: From just one conversation, one can see that Fio is a little ball of sunshine with legs, eager to help others and constantly upbeat. That isn’t to say that she isn’t capable of being sad, its more that she can be happy without reason as long as the sun shines. Her mood dampens a bit when it gets cloudy, making her something of a literal “fair-weather friend”. She gives her all no matter her mood, just…don’t be surprised if she’s cranky when she can’t see the sun.
Bio: Fio would never see the land her mother was born in, as it had been completely leveled to the ground by the events of the Oblivion War. What had once been a verdant grove that would make any herbivore cry with joy was reduced to less than dust, made into a place with more sand than Savahara. Thus, the colony of Fomantis she came from lived out of the Vale of Twilight, stealing away what sunlight they could by venturing out and then returning to the cover of the vale by night in herds.
While growing up in the Vale of Twilight was difficult in some aspects, Fio would often sneak off on her own to explore during the daily “sunning” trips, getting into trouble with her pack, and generally being a headache for her fellow easy-going Sickle-Grass Pokemon. She’d wind up facing consequences for her constant exploration however, as she was kidnapped by a Drapion in the Vale under the assumption that her unusual bulb meant she was some special breed of Fomantis who’s leaves could fetch a huge sum. Whereas most stories had a dashing heroic figure swoop in to rescue the amateur explorer from her fate, it was more dumb luck that her leaves aren’t on the market at the moment.
You see, Drapion don’t exactly have hands that are good at tying bags, so the Drapion’s illicit cart of goods hit a rock, and that sent Fio flying from her sack and into the gutter. Now lost, hungry, and scared, the Fomantis would be found by Astram and Tempie and brought to the guild hall where, instead of filing a job request as they might have imagined, she asked to join on the spot.
In essence…she’s stupidly lucky to even be in Mandalay to begin with.
Trivia: Text Color: 9ACD32 Despite being from a nocturnal species, Fio enjoys walking around during the daytime due to her life being spent in the Vale.
Aaand finished! I hope everything is satisfactory.
I suppose that brings us to our next question: Do you guys want to split the party? And if so, how should we? Do we have Ting and Fio head out to go shopping while Gale gets his fortune read? Do we want to all stay as a group and do everything together? Do you want to have us split up three ways and we each do our own thing for a couple of posts and then reconvene back at the guild?
