Between Cordi and Gerontis
Richard has a trained body, because he likes to train together with his pokemon and because he loves to sport, both to become stronger with his pokemon as to do in his free time.
He is also a bit long, ranging to 5,8 feet.
Living up with parents who were drunkards, a little brother who was always ill and Richard having to take any work when he was able to work. No, his youth isn't one that you want to have. Being beaten up if he couldn't come home with enough money, he was often wondering if life was worth living, but he wanted to achieve his dream : to become a fine trainer with pokemon.
But his condition wasn't one to keep on dreaming or working to achieve it, as he had even no time for a social life. It continued till he was around the age of 14, when he walked home after a long day working a mill and met his best friend. Fang, a growlith pup. Richard, who never had a pokemon, didn't wavered and took him home with him. His parents didn't liked and forced him to make a choice :
Either he should dump the pup on the street, where it wouldn't survive on his own for long or Richard had to live with the pup on the street. He didn't even thought twice about his choice as he left home with Fang following his best friend.
From then Richard had wandered around with Fang for 3 full years. During those time they have met two other pokemons, who Richard had battled and caught. But Richard grew weary of travelling around and when he arrived at Brightfall, a nice, peaceful village, he settled down. Living there another 3 years, he is now considered a villager of Brightfall and loves the life he leads, but somehow feels the urge to travel once more again.
If he only could find a reason for it.
Fang is the best friend of Richard and much like his best friend. Always in a cheerful and bubbly mood, Fang likes to run around and have fun. He is also always ready for a training session or a match. Fang is always outside a poke ball, because Richard doesn't see him as his own pokemon, but as his dearest friend. Besides, he likes it when Fang is around instead of staying in a poke ball.
Claw is the most silent of the three pokemon of Richard. He doesn't say much and often tries to stay on the background and just keeps a eye out on everything what happens around him. Claw likes however to take napes and discover new things.
Cratch is the most active member of the group. You won't see him sitting down for one second as he will run circles and try to taste everything that is new. Often this will get Richard in trouble as Cratch sometimes decides to escape out of his poke ball and start to wander around and try to ''taste'' something...With biting it.
