Roger Nelson - Duality OCT by DiseasedBear Roger Nelson - Duality OCT by DiseasedBear
Revised version of the outfit is up!

Profile information still subject to change until the final submission date, but here he is.
His ask page, though not entirely ready: [link]

Name: Roger Nelson
Age: 32
Nationality: Unovan to the bone
Height: 6.73 ft / 201 cm Dramatically tall, stands out in most crowds.
Weight: Unknown, refuses to reveal.
Eye Colour: Hazel
Hair: Blonde
Star sign: Scorpio (Nov 9th)
Occupation: Farm hand (once)
Weapon: He arms himself with an assortment of throwing daggers (approximately five in a holster, two in the upper sleeves); however, he relies on a fencing dagger to fight when in a pinch (total of eight).
Skills: charmer, knife thrower, and strategist.

Personality: Roger has a hot and cold personality, to get what he wants he’ll be kind and doting, once he gets what he wants he’ll throw the person to the houndour.

Manipulative, but not exactly cruel, as his methodology is often fast and clean, he’ll not string anything along for more than what is needed. He is flirty and confident, selfish but tactical. He will always ensure that he performs to the best of his abilities, due to his ego. He is incredibly frugal. It is unknown if he has a caring and soft side to him, as it has yet to be seen. He might seem intimidating due to his impressive height, but it's his personality that needs to be watched out for.

It might appear that he keeps his Pokémon as pets, grooming them and doting on them, but it is not the case. Out of pride he will keep any of his Pokémon well kept, emotionally it’s to ensure that their bond with him remains strong. In his mind, a happy worker is a good worker. However, ineffectual Pokémon will be quickly disposed of, as they are of no use to him.

His motivations may not be entirely clear, but one thing is known, he is pragmatic and patriotic.

Bio: Roger Nelson was born on a farm near Castelia, being raised for most of his life in relative poverty. As a child he was blissfully unaware of financial difficulty. He was a kind hearted child that wore his emotions on his sleeve, he tended to touch and cuddle as a sign of affection than most others would normally.

Though as life progressed the hardships of life started to wear him and his family down, as he got older he started to wisen up, and he started to go to work himself. And despite the best of his efforts he could not really stop misfortune from falling on his family. He lost his mother to influenza with his father barely making it through the illness himself. Naturally this shattered both of them emotionally; Roger himself was only eleven years old at the time. It took him years to move on and accept it, though the fact that his father survived was a comforting thought. But even so, cynicism started to slowly seep into his mindset, leaving him bitter with his lot in life. He realised that he wanted more in life, and he wanted his father to have more in life.

Over the years he began to mature, becoming a handsome young man, he put his good looks to work, charming older women for fun. It was nice, he craved attention, and it was inherently in his nature to want amorous attention. Typically he charmed merchant’s wives, as most were financially stable, and tended to give him gifts. These gifts were either resold and used to help him and his father or kept for further use. His father disapproved, finding his actions inherently immoral, but in the end it helped them move on with their lives.

When he reached the age of 22, he met the woman that he would eventually marry, Claudia, who was so many more years his senior, even in comparison to the women that he typically courted. She was also a rich widow, having lost her husband to disease, or rather infection. Many suspected that his motivation for marrying this old lonely woman was monetary gain, but none would do much other than whisper behind the odd couple’s backs. He didn’t mind, after all he was finally living in the lap of luxury, in a home that was spacious enough to satisfy him. In this house, he had little to do with his time, taking to destructive behaviors to amuse himself; in one room he would practice knife throwing hitting targets for amusement. Even though his wife disapproved as it would leave horrible marks in the walls, he persisted. Eventually, he progressed into knife throwing for sport.

It wasn’t very long until after the marriage that Claudia was struck by illness herself, it was unspecified. This is when the rumours really started to fly; Mister Nelson did stand to inherit quite a hefty sum, to inherit everything. Within a year she died, leaving Mister Nelson a widower, and a wealthy one at that. It was then that rumours involving arsenic started being passed around, which he seemingly laughed off. It was odd that he seemed to be pretty cheerful for a widower.

He had two other wives after that, one an old window who quickly died and then a girl many years his junior. She lived with him and his father and his step mother for a few years before, unfortunately, dying herself. Due to the nature of Mister Neilson’s love life, the rumours of arsenic began to spread again and yet again he denied it, asking people to stop so that he might mourn in peace. The locket he wears is somehow relevant to his third wife, and he wears it, along with three wedding bands on the same chain as the locket, each representing a wife he has lost.

With the advent of war, Roger readily signed up for the Mage’s guild. (His father, by this point too frail did not, and remains in their home to this very day). He agrees with the opinion of Prince Reinhardt, convinced that everything must be taken by force or cunning, through war. He finds that sort of sentiment valiant.

Perceiving himself as the clever sort of folk, he didn’t find it a stretch to think he’d suit the mage's guild.


A mystery within a mystery, Ferro is an odd pokemon whose history was wrapped in an enigma, thrown into a box of mystification, a conundrum that was punted off the cliff of perplexity and then was swallowed by the wailord of puzzlement.

In short, he has no idea what Ferro is, or where she came from. But like all things strange, she has come with surprises, and pleasant ones at that. Ferro is Roger’s main pokemon, and compliments his personality and thinking the best. Ferro is exceptionally affectionate towards Roger, something that he partly resents, for reasons that he does not specify. But despite this, they do click as a team.

Ability: Magnet Pull
Magnet Bomb: The user launches steel bombs that stick to the target. This attack will not miss.
Thunderwave: A weak electric charge is launched at the target. It causes paralysis if it hits.
Flash Cannon: The user gathers all its light energy and releases it at once. It may also lower the target's Sp. Def stat.
Thunder: A wicked thunderbolt is dropped on the target to inflict damage. It may also leave the target with paralysis.


Astarot is named so because of her fiery nature. Roger keeps her because of her intense, loyal and aggressive personality. She is the youngest member of his party, with Sniezhana being the eldest. Roger expects a lot out of her and as such he might be overbearing to her.

Ability: Blaze
Moves:Ember: The target is attacked with small flames. It may also leave the target with a burn.
Flamethrower: The target is scorched with an intense blast of fire. It may also leave the target with a burn.
SmokeScreen: The user releases an obscuring cloud of smoke or ink. It reduces the target's accuracy.
DragonClaw: The user slashes the target with huge, sharp claws.

She is gentle natured and loyal, though Roger pushes her too far sometimes she does follow his orders. She has difficulty as she is more compassionate than he is; and he uses her as a steed mostly. She is hesitant to harm others.

Ability: Snow Cloak
Moves: Ice beam: The target is struck with an icy-cold beam of energy. It may also freeze the target solid.
Ancient power: The user attacks with a prehistoric power. It may also raise all the user's stats at once.
Hail: The user summons a hailstorm lasting five turns. It damages all Pokémon except the Ice type.
Blizzard: A howling blizzard is summoned to strike the opposing team. It may also freeze them solid.

(edit: Oh my goodness I hope everything is in order :iconpapmingplz: )

Heeeey you have a "modern" pokemon too! I love the gold leaf detailing. :meow:

I like the history a lot, too. It's got a lot of potential in growth, but just as much potential in stasis. I hope you get in; it'd be really interesting to see where your story leads you.

Oh yes, though I kinda checked on the wiki and it does say that Magnemite have existed for over 1500 years. As they appear on carvings in the ruins of Alph, so I guess it's only modern in aesthetic? I'm not sure hahah. But thanks, I did the paint job because I thought it (a she personality wise) looked a tad plain otherwise.

I do plan to use the history to it's fullest extent, thank you for taking the time to read it.
