:bulletpurple:Name: Otto Von Clawssen

:bulletblack:Age: 16 ( joined @ 15 )

:bulletpurple:Gender: Male

:bulletblack:Pokémon: Purrloin

:bulletpurple:Birthday: July 6th

:bulletblack:Height: 4'1''/124 cm

:bulletpurple:Weight: 59 lbs/27 kg

:bulletblack:Nature: Quirky

:bulletpurple:Summary characteristic: Thoroughly cunning

:bulletblack:Ability: Unburden Doubles the Pokémon's Speed stat when the Pokémon's held item is lost.

:bulletpurple:Hometown: Nimbasa City, Unova

:bulletblack:Personality: He's a bit of a loner and spends a lot of time on his own. It's not quite because he's unfriendly or overly shy- while he's good at guessing others' actions, he can't always tell what they feel and finds others a bit confusing. He'll sometimes try to copy their little actions or how they speak, though will knock it off if they notice and tell him off for it. Otto tries to be polite but can be a little too truthful or blunt at times. He quickly becomes dependent on those he feels he does understand and tends to follow them around whenever he has to be outside.
He gets very excited when people show interest in his hobbies, and can become a little overbearing when it comes to sharing his ideas. If you agree to be a listening ear, beware.
Otto does try to make up for his obliviousness in other matters through his problem-solving abilities. He's got a very mathematical way of thinking things through, and uses that to his advantage when he can. He does try to keep a level temper, but he gets a little hot-headed at his worst and can sometimes get irritated over things other people might find trivial. At the very least, he often cools down quickly. He gets very impatient and is quick to give up when he can't figure something out right away.
( summarized:
[+]usually polite
[-]impatient, quitter
[-]oblivious, easily confused
[-]mimics others
[-]insensitive )

:bulletpurple:History: Otto grew up with his mother and father in the bustling city of Nimbasa. His mother, a Liepard, would travel to other regions often due to her job and bring home lots of trinkets for him. The toys and board games she bought for him kept him entertained throughout most of his childhood. His father, a Persian, was the one to look after him most of the time, and was also the one who taught him to play cards ( He was most often the test subject of Otto's mismatched game creations ) But even Otto's dad got very busy with work.

As an only child with two working parents, Otto spent a lot of time on his own at home, playing the games his mother sent him or making up new ones in favor of going anywhere. Because of his general lack of interaction he found himself having difficulty connecting with others, especially the other younger pokemon, and sometimes even found their company bothersome because he couldn't fully understand them. He always tried and failed to rationalize their actions from a logical standpoint, something he still does. That analytical way of thinking led him to appreciate his games with their simpler, consistent rules more than living company, and as a young child he became very withdrawn. Comfortable with his solitude, over time he would go out of his way to avoid other Pokemon and sometimes went weeks at a time refusing to talk to anyone other than his parents. Eventually he did become bored, and even a little lonely- at his parents' insistence, he decided to break his stubbornness and reach out more. He began to wander around the city from time to time- while still hesistent to directly talk to others, he would watch other Pokemon go about their daily lives in Nimbasa in his free time, hoping it'd help his understanding. He'd often visit the Battle Institute or the sports centers, sometimes even the theme parks, and would pay attention to how others talked to each other. In time he picked up on patterns, though never the emotional reasoning behind it.

In the later years of his childhood, Otto tried to find others his age to talk to but few found interest in his favorite things the way he did. He got frustrated when others didn't appreciate the overly-complicated games he came up with, or when they mishandled his cards or knocked over his dominoes. Giving up on getting them to like what he did, Otto spent a lot of time mimicking the other younger Pokemon in an attempt to try to make friends and share their interests. Over time it became a habit as well, and a bit of an annoying one. You could say he was a copycat. When the other pokemon got annoyed or lashed out at him, he only got more irritated with his inability to understand why they were upset and avoided those who got mad at him. When he was making more enemies than friends, Otto gave up on his splurge in socializing in favor of watching from the sidelines again in his teenage years. As far as he was concerned, the patterns kept changing but whenever he tried to match them, people got mad at him. He mostly stayed indoors and was comforted by his games, coming up with more complicated designs and idly toying with the thought that maybe he could come up with ideas that everyone would be interested in.

Naturally, his father became worried that Otto's lack of proper exposure would affect his learning, and his lack of patience would make it hard for him to make friends in the future. When Otto's mother called home about a school she'd found, Armonia Institute, both parents agreed that it would make for a good experience for Otto and perhaps allow him to learn some patience in addition to the other life skills they simply didn't have the time to teach him. Otto was reluctant to leave home for a place full of people he didn't recognize at all, even if it was for a better education and environment, but he eventually allowed himself to be talked into it and agreed to apply.

While he's still not thrilled by the idea of leaving his parents or his city, a bit of research after his initial stubbornness did interest him. Otto is most looking forward to learning how to battle well, because it reminds him of the tournaments in the Battle Institute back home in Nimbasa. He's also hoping to make use of his logical way of thinking, and maybe learn to create games and pastimes that other Pokemon will be interested in. While he'd insist otherwise, he is still hoping to find someone that'll put up with him at least for a little bit and wants to work on his patience. Until then, he waits to be accepted into Armonia Institute.

Father: Alfons Von Clawssen/Persian
Mother: Georgette Von Clawssen/Liepard/Maiden name, Beaumont

:bulletpurple:Hobbies: Otto adores tabletop games. He'll often make up his own games that utilize dice and cards or anything else on hand, and likes to make involved domino set ups. He's good at thinking out chances and predicting outcomes so he'd be quite the opponent in gambling. As far as his other hobbies are concerned, he likes word puzzles and loves taking care of pets!

:bulletblack:Extras/Fun Facts:
⊛The dominoes and dice he carries around are his good luck charms. He almost always has them somewhere on hand- without them, he becomes incredibly anxious.
⊛All the dice he carries with him are from board games his mother sent him.
⊛Otto wears his bandanna as often as possible. Whenever it's too cold or the situation doesn't call for it, he'll wear a scarf or a collared shirt at the very least.
⊛He switches up how he ties the bandanna so that there is a different suit is on the front every day.
⊛He's very good at mimicking voices and remembering quotes, but can't remember faces very well.
⊛If you can get him to laugh, he has a hard time stopping. It can be a task, but he does have an affinity for bad jokes.
⊛Though he can be a little disinterested in music as a whole, he loves stringed instruments. His favorite is the harp.
⊛Otto gets a bit obsessed with taking really good care of his playing cards. Whenever even one gets torn or bent, he tosses it and replaces it immediately. However, he still keeps the dingy old set that he used to play games with his dad.
⊛He hates other people touching his belongings.
⊛His favorite move to use is Assist.
⊛He loves pets, and has a hard time staying mad at them.
⊛Unlike most Purrloin whose feet are entirely the off-white cream color, only his toes are.
⊛He hates being laughed at. He can let it slide for friends, but with anyone else he gets very flustered and upset- especially if they don't tell him what he did wrong.
⊛Might just have a distant older cousin at a rival school...
