"Don't worry, now. I ain't gonna let anything happen to you."
Team: None - Medburn Exploration Guild
History: Hanna was raised by a Mudsdale father and Donphan mother, in a small, isolated town in the middle of the desert. It was a peaceful town before the Stargate opened, and though it was tough living in the harsh desert heat, she was happy there. The Pokemon in that town were like family to her. If it was possible for her to stay, she would have, but thanks to the Stargate, it didn't last.
The entire town lived off a nearby oasis, which was the only water source for miles. Without it, the townspeople couldn't survive, and it almost seemed like the Stargate knew that. Everything seemed normal one day, but the next morning, the oasis was completely drained, with nothing remaining but a few dying plants. One by one, the townspeople left. Hanna was one of the last to leave, stubbornly convincing herself that the oasis would return, but soon enough, she came to her senses. After packing up what little she had, she set off into the desert, with no idea where she would go.
She wasn't anywhere near prepared for a trek through the desert. There was some water stored, but it had to be split up between everyone in town, leaving her with not nearly enough. Within a few days, she completely ran out, despite her best efforts to ration it. Shortly after, the blazing desert sun had started to take its toll on her. Luckily for her, an exploration team from the guild happened to be in the area. When they found her, she was severely dehydrated, and barely conscious. She probably would have died out there if not for them.
After she recovered, she decided to go back to Medburn with the team that rescued her. After everything that happened to her, she didn't want it happening to anyone else. This was why she decided to join the guild. It would give her a chance to help others, and after everything the guild had done for her, she felt that she was in their debt. With the Stargate having finally been closed at this point, she thought she could go back to having a somewhat normal life.
More recently, though, she's been hearing whispers and rumors of the Stargate's re-opening. She didn't want to believe it, but the evidence was overwhelming. There's no way she's letting it cause as much destruction as last time, though. She's willing to do anything in her power to close it, this time for good.
Personality: Hanna is very protective of others, especially those who she feels can't protect themselves. She's willing to go to great lengths to make sure those close to her don't get hurt, even jumping in front of attacks to stop them from hitting her teammates. Should something happen to her friends while she's around, she would have trouble forgiving herself. She can also be stubborn and headstrong at times. After she's made up her mind, it can be really difficult to change it. Though it can be a hindrance sometimes, her strong will and determination are what got her to where she is today.
