|Twenty Five||female||plasma||skater / trainer|
At first glance, anyone would whole-heartedly believe that Don is a male. She goes by 'Don', has a flat chest, and even wears 'skater boy' clothes. She hates dresses and skirts and anything girly, so don't ever expect to see her in any of those, even at special occasions. She'd rather wear a tuxedo to her own wedding if the day ever comes. By the way she dresses in the first place, though, it's clear that she doesn't much care for looks to begin with. She'd sooner toss on what's comfortable and loose-fitting than ponder over what to wear. Level of cleanliness is also not always an issue.
Even with her having a big personality, Don isn't physically very complimentary. She stands at 5'4 and is thin, but her fighting style is very well attuned to fighting with quick punches and kicks and knock backs, and she has enough power to knock someone out with the aluminum bat she carries.
Her red hair has always been kept cut short in a messy cut, and more often than not is also hidden beneath a black beanie. If ever it's off for some occasion, it's usually slicked back. Her golden brownish eyes copy the intensity of her hair color without complimenting it, something she's very aware of but tends to ignore.<o:p></o:p>
|Venturesome & Troublesome|
Don practically sweats how much of a 'tough girl' she is by taking nearly any dare she's given. Not much actually scares her, and when she finds something that should be considered dangerous, she thinks of it as more of a challenge. The problem is that she gets bored easily, and finds rather destructive ways to find something to do.
Confident & Aggressive
Don is more than confident in her abilities to fight and train. She wastes no effort in either of these, and she also holds a special confidence that her pokemon and friends will always know what to do when there's trouble. However, with this confidence comes a certain aggressiveness in her personality. She comes off as a mean sob to those who don't know her well, and she's always ready for a fight regardless of where it comes from.
Freethinking & Sarcastic
No one could tell Don who she is, what do to, or where to go without her really wanting to. She's a free spirit and does what she wants, when she wants and doesn't let others hold her down or force her to believe or do anything. When she does find people who have wholly committed themselves to one thing she likes to poke fun at them in sarcastic ways, although sarcasm is something that spans across all forms of conversation for her. She enjoys conversations and people rather well, but it will show just how much she likes the person via how much sarcasm she uses in the conversation. Needless to say, she doesn't care if anyone disagrees with her use of sarcasm in every day experiences.
Optimistic & Stubborn
While she is a force to deal with on her bad side, Don is a very upbeat and optimistic person. She likes laughing and keeping spirits high to keep the fun going. And when the fun starts going downhill, she tries as hard as she can to keep it going unless it's on a touchy subject.
Loyal & Insecure
Now in the case that one does happen to gain Don's trust and friendship, it will last forever. She's very picky about those she calls friends, though, so even when she gets chummy with any person, that doesn't instantly make them her friend. The only way anyone can tell she's their true friend is when she shares any insecurities with them, which she has few. She hates it when people assume she's male - not a big insecurity, but it makes her angry. If someone knows about her insecurities she's liable to punch them if they tell anyone else.
Shrewd & Dominating
Don has a sharp mind that, while usually put to better use in her sarcasm, is also put toward her judgements in the things that matter: friends, pokemon, and any serious decisions she makes. She also normally ignores it, but one of her greatest values is her leadership ability. She stays cool and calm in most any situation and she'll normally use this to her advantage to dominate her opponents as often as she can.
Relaxed & Blunt
Down time is good time, even though Don can get fired up pretty easily. She typically will follow suite when others get fired up, but she can also be a fairly relaxed person when she's not bored. When she's relaxed, she's more upfront with people. She's far from being against lying to people - and in fact will if she doesn't believe they deserve to know the truth - but she'll be the one to be objectively truthful to those she likes.
With four brothers, it was rather difficult for her mother to do anything to keep the girl from becoming a tomboy and practically brawling with her brothers. She was always a feisty girl who wanted to be the winner and after some time her brothers stopped going easy on her, so it was either learn to keep up or fall behind. From when she was small, her father always told her that he had wanted his oldest to be a son and, as much as she hated to admit it, she wanted to make him proud so she acted like a boy. It helped a little that she never learned to like dresses or skirts and was always excessively flat chested, so much still that many still assume she's a male at first glance.
As a business man, Don's father was rather upset that his firstborn was so uncanny and started generally ignoring her when she was in her mid-teens. Don took this as a rejection and started putting herself into other areas of her life, mainly focusing on her fighting. Whereas her brothers grew out of the 'brawling stage' of their lives, Don hadn't known that's what was expected of her, as the oldest, and as such lost her loyalties to her parents; her father for rejecting her and her mother for letting him affect her so much.
And so she started searching, taking her rage out onto the road. Having had some talent with skateboarding, she joined up with a group of rookies who did stunts for videos until she had heard about the conflict that was ravaging Anrui and found her way there. She keeps in touch with her family of course, so she hasn't totally cut them out of her life, and actually still feels rather fondly of her brothers, if anyone.
When she arrived in Anrui, Don chose to join Plasma. She needed the money, to begin with, but she mainly just wanted to be able to do what she wanted freely.
