Juliette Viviana Rinaldi; goes by Jet to hide her identity
Juliette is a curious person with an unquenchable thirst for adventure. She has seen the world only through books and yearns nothing more than to experience everything she has missed out on. Although it may not seem so, especially when she is too eagerly fawning about every new thing she encounters, Juliette is the type to calmly but swiftly assess a situation before taking action. She has no prior experience in most things, so she relies on wits and perceptiveness to achieve most of her goals. That being said, neither her cleverness nor pragmatism can hide the obvious naiveté she possesses. Her point of reference has always been books and distant observations. She knows very little about what is or is not socially acceptable—for one thing, she is overly blunt and she doesn't know how to properly respond to certain situations—and has no idea how the world really works.
In Peacock City, everyone knows of the Rinaldi family. With more than half the city's businesses and estates under their ownership, they're what you call filthy rich. Juliette just so happens to be the only daughter and the youngest in this family, and you can imagine what that entailed. Everything was done for her; she has never cooked or cleaned or have to do any sort of physical labor at all. She was showered with gifts on a daily basis, and there were people and Pokemon at her beck and call. Juliette basically had the privileged life that many dream of. But while she was given everything she would need and more, she was also restricted from doing many things.
You see, Juliette has always been rather frail, quick to tire and fall ill. Because of this, her overprotective parents had chosen to keep her under heavy surveillance. She was forbidden from straying too far from their premises and she was allowed to socialize only with people her parents and siblings have approved of. Her life was one of luxury, but it was also rather suffocating. Instead of traveling and going on grand adventures with her Pokemon, she was allowed only to read about them in her books. Instead of making new friends and playing with them, she was allowed only to observe and pretend. No matter how much she protested to her parents, assuring them that she is not as fragile as they thought her to be, they never relented. Juliette knew there was only one way she would get the adventure she has always yearned for.
It was years in the making, but she had finally concocted a fail-proof escape plan. Just days after she turned fifteen, Juliette packed up everything she needed and fled. She left only a short message behind for her family, and she could only hope they would come to understand her decision.
Accompanied by her worrywart Piplup, Juliette took the train and rode it until its final stop at Cardinal Town, miles and miles away from her home. Upon arriving at the town, she sold a couple of her trinkets at the local Poke Mart for some cash and hightailed it to the salon, where she traded in her telltale bright red locks for brown ones. With enough money to last her for a while and a new unrecognizable appearance, Jet
was ready to start her long overdue journey.
Drizzle the modest Piplup
: Pound, Growl, Bubble
: Meek and ever fretful, Drizzle is Juliette's self-appointed nurse. She knows of Juliette's tendency to disregard her health, so she has taken it upon herself to watch over the girl. She's usually seen wearing a little pouch containing Juliette's medicine around her neck because of this. Although usually calm and gentle, she has a surprisingly intimidating presence when she snaps. Misbehaving and reckless Pokemon beware; you wouldn't want this Piplup disciplining you.
