Coraline (Korra) Xane* Stage name: Nightwing
Cerulean City, Kanto
Skinny and small, any other with her build wouldn't earn a second thought. However, with her apparel and accessories, she isn't as invisible as most like she would be. Her raven colored hair, so dark 'tis nearly blue in the proper light, reaches her hips. Usually it is left to dangle freely, often getting in her face, although on occasions she french braids it or pulls it back into a ponyta-tail. She is not pale, but not tan, having not spent a lot of time outside. She tends to sunburn easily, and so she has to apply large amounts of sunscreen to prevent herself from burning. Light, nearly invisible freckles are sprinkled across her cheeks and atop the lower bridge of her nose.
On a normal day, she wears a light violet-gray undershirt, with a smokey vest**. A pair of tight fitting jeans the same color as the vest are worn as well, light blue fake jewel designs on the back pockets. When performing, she trades out the jeans for a long, flowing skirt the same shade as the undershirt***. She wears slip-on shoes the same shade as the vest, although the skirt is long enough to hide them. When the weather worsens or it gets cold, she trades out the upper outfit for a jacket the same color as her vest. She wears the same jeans, with fluffy knee-length boots.
Around her neck, she wears a small chain necklace, holding her ocarina at the bottom. It is black, with swirling gold designs.. Strapped to her back in place of a backpack, is her violin case. A satchel clips onto it, holding everything else.
Coraline is not shy. She likes talking to people, but only if they initiate the conversation. She has a hard time going up to people and saying “Hiya! I'm Coraline! What's your name?” She finds her fans very annoying, even though they are few, they are the kind to go “OMG YOU'RE NIGHTWING AHHHHHH!” That is the reason she doesn't go up to people to initiate contact; she fears accidentally running into a fan. If someone comes up to her however, it's easy for her to determine if they recognize her or not. If they do, she can make a quick get away. If not, she can enjoy a nice conversation.
She is pretty creative. In fact, she has to be for her line of work. She choreographs her own dances for her music performances, and designs the set idea for it. While most of the music she performs are covers of other's songs (such as Bring Me to Life, Broken, and If I Die Young), she also writes her own music.
She can't stand bug-types. While she will catch them, she refuses to train them and instead will do her best to get rid of them, either by selling or trading them. The same can be said for poison types, which goes hand in hand. She prefers Pokemon that can perform with her, whether by singing (in their own way), by dancing (again, in their own way), or just by looking pretty in the background. Being raised in Cerulean City has given her a love for water-types.
Coraline was born in Saffron City, and lived a relatively normal life. She had a loving family, and playmates. On the day of her 2nd birthday, her father abruptly walked out on them. He gave no reason, and gave her mother a week to move out. For a while, she and Korra lived with a friend of hers in Saffron as her mother and father fought over custody. Eventually, her mother won, and as soon as she could she moved them both to Cerulean City for a new start.
However, most of the families there were rather judgmental. They didn't want their children playing with a child of a single parent. They considered her to be a bad influence; 'if my kid becomes friends with her, they'll think it's okay to be a single parent!' She grew up relatively friendless, except for one or two who couldn't care less what people thought. However, as they reached schooling age, they drifted apart. Her friends chose to stop interacting her in favor of becoming friends with the 'popular' crowd.
As she now had no one to interact with other than her mother, who was often busy with work, she purchased a second-hand violin. She signed up for private lessons, and quickly became quite adept. Soon, she began to perform in concerts, often singing along with her playing. She became well-known; so well-known that she took on a stage name: Nightwing. She earned a small fan-base, several of them people who once scorned her but now tried to lick her boots. She didn't let them, not trusting them to turn on her at the first sign of conflict.
While taking a break from her contests and concerts, Coraline found an odd-looking instrument, called an ocarina. With some of her contest-winnings, she purchased it, along with a How-To guide. She taught herself, and would play it when bored.
