Because I'm The Bigg Slamm and I'm JAWSOME!!!
"And the reign will kill us all, we throw ourselves against the wall, but no one else can see, the preservation of the martyr in me." Corey Taylor, Psychosocial, Slipknot
Name: Captian James Clint. Friends and family call me James usually and those in the Gym tend to call me 'Cap' or Captain'
Gender: Male. Definitely male.
Sexuality: Straight, Heterosexual, whatever you want to call it. I'm happily married and expecting my first child in about three months. Here's hoping for a boy.
Occupation: I'm an Honourably discharged air force pilot. Currently I'm the Gym Leader in Seattle and a Chartered Engineer.
Personality: I'd like to consider myself an all-round kind of guy. I'm not over bearing nor am I too lenient about anything. I suppose the former is a result of my youth and the latter a result of my service. I'm open to new ideas and suggestions just be prepared to be met with a cynical skepticism. I tend to value intelligence above emotion but only slightly. My wife, Laney, like to say I too often have my head in the clouds; both figuratively and literally.
Likes: Physics is a big like. I have a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering and I'm considering doing a PhD later in life. I love reading and writing, in fact some of my stuff has been published, mostly short stories though. Military fiction and Sci-fi is what I write but I'll pretty much read anything. I love Laney and the rest of my family and friends and all that. I miss the cockpit though. Sure, I get to fly Cessna and other small craft now and then but nothing will ever beat being sat in control of an F-22 Raptor. Almost surreal.
Dislikes: Nagging. Laney does her fair share of it too. Other than that, immaturity and lack of discipline definitely annoy me. If you can't conduct yourself in a cordial fashion then you need some serious self analysis. That said, neither do I like sticks in the mud. If you're not willing to adapt and change you're not going to get very far.
Biography: So I was born in West Philli. It was what some would call 'rough' but I had decent friends and school that gave me the foundations I needed. At the age of ten we moved to Seattle. I remember getting 'Spirit' a rufflet on my 12th birthday. He's been with me ever since. My father was a commercial pilot and easily found work. My mother did secretarial work for the Army so when she was moved to Seattle we all moved too. I'm sure my parents initially hoped I'd go further in life when I told then I wanted to enlist. I was combining both their professions in a way, but I'd had exemplary academic records and results. At first, I considered doing History or Advanced Maths Studies. I would have been well capable of doing so, but they lacked a certain sense of adventure.
Eventually I decided on enlisting in the Air Force aged seventeen. I joined through a Cadetship; I trained as an officer while studying for a degree. I finished too of my class in theory and in practical flight tests and in Pokemon battles. I entered the force as a Master Sergeant which sounds more impressive than it is, and with a BSA in Aeronautical Engineering. My first tour of duty only lasted six months but I was awarded a medal of bravery for landing my Hornet behind enemy lines and extracting a VIP target. I was suppose to just being doing a routine superiority patrol. Landing a jet without an airstrip is dangerous in itself never mind in enemy territory. I couldn't help. It was a moment of adrenaline and stupidity. I was lucky not to be court marshalled; even though I got the medal I was unofficially grounded and went through many 'building' exercises for the next six months which were meant to increase my discipline and they certainly did. I finally saw the value of a well oiled machine. Obviously, not literally, that had already been established with my degree. Figuratively I mean. I understood I was just another transistor in an engine circuit and needed to play my part.
I played it exceptionally well if I do say so. After another three years active service I was bumped up to 2nd lieutenant and given my own squadron. That's we're I met Laney, she was our logistics specialist, a must for any F-22 squadron. The next two and half years were spent here operating with Spirit and my squad. We were all decent trainers and often out Pokemon accompanied us. Now to some, that sounds reckless but it was their choice not ours. They saw us risking our lives for others' safety on a continual basis and wanted to do so too. The others were skeptical at first as was I but Spirt and the others were determined. It was in these two and half years of service were I caught the rest of my team. The more time that passed the less service we spent on active duty and the more time we spent back at base. During this time I bonded with my team, my Pokemon and fell in love with Laney. We got married a year ago, the same time I was granted an Honourable discharge. I wasn't injured or anything, I had requested it. My time with the force was at an end in my opinion. Me and Laney wanted to settle down and I always had my Pokemon battles to entertain and fulfil me outside the home. In this time I'd been promoted twice more, to 1st lieutenant and then Captain. My rank and seven combat commendations meant I was the kind of personnel the force didn't want to lose, but who's decision they respective.
I got a job with a subsidiary of Emerson's and Laney used her service qualifications to get an IT position in Emerson's itself, even though she's currently on maternity leave. I'm a project manager and my subordinates are extremely capable giving me a lot of free time, which I mostly use battling. I got quite a reputation around Washington despite being a bit of a late comer. Eventually I challenged the Seattle Gym and the older leader, Gray, was an ex-serviceman too seeking permanent retirement. After a long but exhilarating battle I won. Initially I thought I would maybe even attempt to get the other seven but them Gray offered me his position. How could I refuse? Especially when the Gym is a five story, converted hangar with airstrip. I still work for the engineering company on the side but the Gym is my major source of income.

Added your profile, Darkmatter!!
And I have to apologize- I'm going to be a bit busy and out of the house for a good portion of today, but I'm almost halfway through with my latest profiles, halfway done with my latest pokemon drawing, and about a third through my first potential IC post. So, hopefully, SOMETHING will get done today (though more likely tonight)

i like otters
But for top- secret plot-related purposes, two of those characters are only going to be played temporarily, so it will eventually go down to seven.
I can do it, it's just that I'm slow with posting everything, so it will always take me a while >.<
FLYYYY IIIIINTOOO THE DANGER ZONE!!
But yes, whilst cleaning my room and listening to random music, I shall work on adding more X chromosomes to this popsicle stand...or something relevant at least XD
Well, I actually take that back. Three gym leaders. So....ten XD
