Tristan and Trinity Storm, twin separated by minutes at birth were born to parents Annabelle and Michael Storm. Each of the four Storm family members were born and have grown up in Pacifidlog Town their entire lives, their exposure to other destinations within the Hoenn region was virtually non-existent. With a total population of around 20 people the community of Pacifidlog Town was tight knit. Despite the town's small nature, many visitors would often venture to Pacifidlog. The majority of visitors would visit to participate in the local Pokemon Contests at the Pacifidlog Town Contest Hall, others often simply came to fish, surf, dive or explore for the creatures of legend and myth. The local Pokemon Center acted as primarily a hostel for visitors to the town
Within the Hoenn region, many trainers would often stray from the adventure of being a Pokemon trainer and would instead purse a career as a coordinator. The Storm family of Pacifidlog had been associated with Pokemon Contests for many years with Annabelle working as a judge at the Contest Hall. Michael had previously worked in construction and maintenance.
The Storm twins had just turned thirteen years old when their father had a workplace accident on the work-site and his physical capabilities have been significantly hindered ever since. Michael now works as as the announcer at Contest Hall. Both parents are hard working and this trait has flowed down onto their children. After his workplace accident and before he acquired his new job, Michael taught his twins the tricks of the trade relating to construction and maintenance, the pair slowly but steadily becoming comfortable with their newfound skills and knowledge.
From a young age the twins were taught to swim, surf and dive, given they live so close to the water these skills were extremely beneficial. The majority of the Storm twins' free time was spent helping others in the form of teaching visitors to Pacifidlog Town how to surf and deep dive, or in rare cases to teach others how to swim if they didn't know how to previously. Having lived around Pokemon their whole young lives they had both fallen in love with water type Pokemon, these types of Pokemon were abundant surrounding Pacifidlog Town. One day while deep diving off the outskirts of Pacifidlog Town, Tristan came within the vicinity of a wild and clearly agitated Sharpedo. Frantically Tristan tried to get away and back to shore and was able to do so, however in his escape his right cheek was cut open against pillar coral. Tristan made a full recovery from the incident, however a nasty scar was left on the injury site.
As their parents worked at the Contest Hall, Tristan and Trinity would regularly attend the contests when they were held in town. Trinity favored the rounds of the contest where showcasing the elements of a Pokemon were emphasized, while Tristan preferred to watch the Pokemon showcase their moves and move combinations. On his sixteenth birthday Tristan decided he would like to expand his horizons and go on his own journey and explore outside of Pacifidlog Town. Tristan was hesitant to pursue his dream however as leaving Pacifidlog Town would place a burden on his family, particularly his sister Trinity who would be left with the construction and maintenance work. Tristan's family have constantly had to reassure him to go chase his dreams and to have fun while doing so.

Personality: Poseidon is a confident young Remoraid who loves to fight. Whilst in battle Poseidon often tries to make sequences of moves look spectacular so as to show-off to his trainer and garner his attention.
Tristan met Youngster Mikey who challenged him to a battle, an apt way to start off his journey. Tristan gave Nami the Squirtle a Mystic Water to wear as Tristan received a notification that he had received a gift in the form of Neptune the Horsea from his sister back home in Pacifidlog. The battle against Mikey's Rattata then commenced. Nami defeated Mikey's Rattata and Neptune defeated Mikey's Pidgey in battle. Tristan then faced a new opponent in the form of Silver, Neptune made quick work of the crimson haired boy's Chikorita and taught him a well deserved lesson in respect after how he had treated his own pokemon and Tristan as well. Nami was called back into action against a wild Sentret who was blinded by anger and she made quick work out of it as the battle experience gap was evidently too big for the scout pokemon to overcome.
Tristan studied information on his pokedex about the pokemon he has encountered so far. Tristan also purchased a Carvanha from the universal rewards store on his pokedex, additionally Tristan purchased a Remoraid from a trainer shop online and both of those pokemon were delivered to him via Peliper mail. Tristan undertook an alolan trial from Kaui and Maui in which Mako fought hard against a Ledyba and Ledian to earn his first alolan amulet.
