DANIEL GAITLEY
TWENTY-SIX MALE (EX-)MASTERS STUDENT



friends and family
Dan's a smart and suave young scholar who still has some of the bad boy swag of his high school days. He's very driven and hardworking when it comes to things he's passionate about - myths, the sea, exploring, Pokemon battling, sports. When in the library, Dan is focused and sharp, although he will always chuckle at a good joke. He does his job well, but always knocks off on time. After work, he enjoys unwinding with a good drink and party. As someone who always remained comfortably in the popular strata of society, Dan can occasionally let pride get the better of him. Once in a while, a cocky side might surface, and his grin will curl up in a charmingly lopsided manner. Step on his toes - be impolite, rude or condescending - and he might roar flames at you. When infuriated, Dan tends to let his muscles get the better of him. Thankfully, these moments are rare and far between. Dan is generally a good and likeable guy who fits well into the party.

Very uncharacteristic for an alpha male jock, Daniel is openly fascinated with myths about the sea, and openly geeks out about things related to this. When you get him excited about mythology, Dan goes into a deeply dreamlike mode that is also tinged with affection. Maybe he's searching for someone to share these moments with.


interests
Daniel is a Trainer who burns hotly for Dragons and creatures of the sea, consumed by the grandeur of myth and fantasy. He's really glad he gets to study this for a living, even if only for the next one year or so. Daniel also likes swimming and diving with his Pokemon, and most sports. He's also a huge competitive battler, so if you're a good-humoured Trainer looking to improve yourself, he's your go-to sparring partner! He also likes to geek out over myths, especially oceanic legends.

love life
Daniel's had several relationships with girls from his hometown, but hasn't had anything beyond a casual hook-up here in Eden. Daniel isn't actively looking, but nothing's stopping him from buying the cute girl in the cafe a drink if he thinks he stands a chance. He likes witty girly girls. Despite being a dude with swag, Daniel isn't actually very interested in finding a trophy girlfriend. He wants someone he can trust with his flights of fancy about the magic in the universe.

enemies
Daniel's generally nice, and doesn't really have enemies. Not yet.

so i have really been enjoying threading jinx with daniel and the whole absol nonsense. but i'd also really be interested in threading him with charlotte! i don't have any ideas but she's a groomer and could definitely give that new absol of his a nice grooming! she'd also be very interested to ask him about merlin and why he chose that evolution for him. she specialises in fairy pokemon and she'd be wondering why he chose fighting instead. because in her mind her little fairy pokes are perfect haha.

Hello! Khan here, and I'd love to plot with you, so I thought up a couple of ideas to use as a basis for a meeting~ so without further ado...

Daniel and Daltyn

They're both similar, in a way; big hearts, physical prowess and a passion for what they do lend to correlation between them. They're also very close age-wise, so there's that too. However, Dan's in the big leagues when it comes to his Pokemon while Daltyn's just starting out, so I'd expect friendly banter towards the rookie. But I could see them becoming friends, even if they end up having contests of fitness and such out of friendly competition :L

As for how they'd meet, Daltyn travels a lot in search of either new pokemon, or chance encounters with those who need help, but he also has a bit of wanderlust when it comes to curious things. Maybe he's investigating a seaside ruin that might have a tie-in with the past, or still trying to cheer up Dam'rei, and he encounters Daniel while he's studying. Or if Dan was to find himself needing a hand with something, Daltyn would happily aid the stranger.

These are just a few ideas, so if you have any, feel free to pop them here or in a pm! ^^

Hello Khan! Daltyn's into music, but Dan isn't really that much of a music lover beyond radio pop. Perhaps they could bump into each other at some music event, and Daltyn could try to educate Dan on music? x)

I love that idea~! There are lots of bands that Daltyn would go and see in concert, maybe even offering to roadie for one if they needed it. He'd be well up for introducing Dan to some new music, maybe even using him as a guinea pig for one of his contest routine ideas~ ^^

Hitting plotter number #5. Academic buddies. Daniel is a master’s student and Eiryth is now taking her specialization courses in cardiology. Both study quite different careers, but maybe they could’ve met at the University? Maybe at the library, or somewhere else in campus?

Since Eiryth is so extremely rational (and, sincerely, damn stiff), maybe being influenced by Daniel’s passion for myths, legends, dragons and marine creatures could force her back into remembering what it was to dream about all those things when she was little.

I think it could make Eiryth a little less robotic and antisocial, lol. I'm sure Eiryth would initially judge Daniel as the typical highschool bad boy, so maybe that could get on Daniel's nerves. They could even start on bad terms and for certain reasons or events suddenly start to get along pretty well?

I think you mentioned Dan settling with Hibiscus as his homebase town in Eden. Arcadia is pretty much a local. She grew up most of her life in Hibiscus. As a gym trainer and avid beachside jogger, it'd stand to reason that they might have met at some point. She needs some hometown buddies, y'know? xD She also has a great love for water pokemon and would be completely game to geek out about them if given a chance. Unlike Dan, who was a jock/scholar sort, she's never been much of an academic. But her love of water pokemon has made her interested in aquatic rehabilitation and sort.

So lots of maybes for plottings?

Arcadia Valance Yep! Now that Dan's graduated, he found himself an apartment in Hibiscus because of its proximity to the beach. He definitely spends a lot of time swimming, diving, and generally beaching out and being a surfer bro because he didn't have much time to do that while he was getting his degree! He'd definitely have a reason to see Arcadia.

Although Dan is an experienced sea person, I imagine he doesn't have much experience with tending to injured Pokemon. Maybe he could encounter an injured sea critter and then have no idea what to do with it, and Arcadia could show up and show him what to do? Since she's into rehabilitation, which Dan doesn't really know how to do.

So should they have met? Have them be surfing peeps that met on the beach and sometimes chat when they end up in the same place?

As for her interest in rehab, it is mostly just an interest. She knows most of what she does from watching the employees at the gym and from her experience helping her froakie. It'd be a, "An injured pokemon? Uhhh, I think this is what you're supposed to do! I saw so-and-so do this and this." She'd be very passionate about helping though.

(This won't count toward the character challenge since they've met before, but....)

At some point, these two need to meet up again. Maybe battle? Maybe not? Adrian's changed some since they've last met. I think they have the same badges now, and he has two pokemon that can mego-evolve (Grace is close-ish). He's also establishing a name a breeder (who currently needs to find a home for some shiny vulpix and a homicidal pelliper).

That, and I do believe their altaria really hit it off when they met.

Reunions would be fun, eh?

Arcadia Valance, I think they could know each other but only have been acquaintances up till this point in time. He's more of a battler than a healer, and probably doesn't intend to catch the Pokemon he saw, so he'd ask Arcadia for help on how to help it and readjust back to life at sea.

Adrian Smith, that sounds great! That might have to wait until I clear some threads, though - I am currently RPing at my max!

I'm pretty capped out for threads myself, so I'm cool with waiting. I just thought I'd pass some plottings your way while you were here~

Arcadia is a battler herself, but she is nurturing too. So she wouldn't be against challenging or accepting challenges, though I have a feeling dan would trounce her, no matter how prepared she is to compensate for her team's weaknesses. Anywho, it would certainly be interesting to have the two acquaintances meet on the beach, maybe the both of them there with plans to surf or something, when they happen upon the injured pokemon. Sounds like a plan to me~

When we're both more open, we can thread either or both of these ideas. ^_^

Maybe Daniel could have asked her out and she mistakes it as a platonic thing and its really awkward as she explains shes not into him like that because shes taken?
