Proud, blunt, naive, curious, sentimentalBrief History:
Ming Fen comes from the faraway region of Ransei. She has set out to Saros to begin her own warrior’s legend, although very upset that she had to leave her other Pokemon behind. She is determined to have a life of her own, and seems to want to prove someone that she can stand on her own two feet.Misc:
-The single clawed gauntlet actually belonged to someone from Ming Fen's past to remember him by.
-The oriental hairpins and pearl hairband were from her days with her clan. She has many other trinkets and accessories from home. She also collects those originating from Saros.
-The crest that acts as her belt buckle is her team's identity.
-She is used to walking on her toes like a digitigrade
and barefooted at that.
-Her spear is called 'Red Sky' and was a parting gift to her from her many Pokemon back at home.
-She's really bad with money, and will spend a lot of it without thinking about it. However, there is always replenishment.

Seraphina the Blazing BeautySpecies:
Adult (equivalent to 30 human years)Height:
Alert to soundsAbility:
Sky Uppercut, Aerial Ace, Blaze Kick, ThunderpunchMisc:
Seraphina is Ming Fen's most trusted partner, having being together with her the longest, compared to her other Pokemon. Although serious most of the time, she does have her tender moments. Her pauldron's designs are based on her two very best friends, Ivanka the Marowak and Helios the Seviper. She thinks of them all the time and misses them dearly when they are apart. Wearing the pauldron into battle convinces her that her friends are always by her side, giving her strength. Her nickname signifies her strong Fire-type moves and the grace that accompanies it. She is very protective towards Ming Fen. She was revealed to be quite an impulsive youngster when she was a Combusken. She was also prone to committing suicide.Name:
Ferruccio the Battalion ForceSpecies:
Adult (equivalent to 32 human years)Height:
Iron Tail, Dragon Claw, Rollout, SurfMisc:
Ferruccio is considered a veteran battler in Ming Fen's team and has been on the team almost as long as Seraphina, herself. They share a very successful relationship as the 'team leader and right-hand man' of the group. His analytical skills prove useful in battle, aside from his amazing defense and strength, which earned him his nickname, the Battalion Force. Both he and Seraphina are displeased with the fact that they have to work with an insolent brat (Cephas) and not with someone from their old team formation. Ming Fen likes to travel with him, especially for iron-foraging. He is currently undersized, as an Aggron, since he is still a growing beast. Name:
Cephas the Natural DestroyerSpecies:
Early teenager (equivalent to 14 human years)Height:
Likes to thrash aboutAbility:
Zen Headbutt, Avalanche, Earthquake, Rock SlideMisc:
Cephas is the youngest among the three, and so acts like it. He's childish, playful and does not easily listen to orders, gaining disapproval from the two older, veteran fighters. He actually tries a lot to impress both Seraphina and Ferruccio since he sees them as his role models or heroes. He has yet to learn that being brash and wild will only make them look down on him even more. He is the Natural Destroyer because all he ever creates is destruction. Ming Fen and Cephas hold mock-training through playful games a lot. He has a sharp tongue, and his rude mouth has earned him blows from Seraphina a lot of times.Name:
Helios the Baneful SidewinderSpecies:
Seviper (equivalent to 37 human years)Gender:
Likes to relaxAbility:
Poison Jab, Night Slash, Giga Drain, LickMisc:
He used to be Seraphina's guardian, and their bond is so tight that they are the best of friends. He is among the eldest of Ming Fen's many Pokemon, and is considered the wisest of them all. He is usually silent and quick in battle, a very effective tactic. He moves by sidewinding instead of slithering most of the time. Although he is more than qualified to be the leader, or at least the second-in-command, he prefers to hand over the titles to Seraphina and Ferruccio respectively, who look up to him so much. He recently arrived in Olan port after being released of his duties back home in Ransei. On his tail, he has a ridge of hollowed bones with a small piece of round bone in it, used like a rattlesnake's. It was his souvenir, when he first arrived in Moeras.
Ming Fen and Ferruccio passed SXL R1! I'm so happy that I scored 14 out of 15! I was so thrilled that my hands actually shook. I didn't even know the results were out until my friend ~Rocket14 said that we made it through, along with *MidniteKai . And yay, ~Airanke passed too! R2's gonna be a blast! CORUS PRIDE! So, anyway, the judging was done by our esteemed faction leader, Lady Ferrite Colliery (*biscuitcrumbs). Here are her critiques: Positive - Very nice style all throughout! Awesome poses in the battle too, gives a nice sense of movement and power! That Korra-esque animation on page 6 was awesome, too! And props for the Ferrite cameo~ Great job! Thank you! I feel glad that I practiced those forms regularly, so I know how to draw them properly. Haha, well, Korra's waterbending did help give me the reference I needed, but I've had the idea of an Aggron executing Surf outside the wa
