Name: Riley Valentine
Appearance: Riley has dark copper, borderline dark cherry red hair, cropped so its longest layer brushes the top of her shoulders. Side bangs fall over her right eye, and tuck behind her ear when she's in "the zone". Riley's eyes are rather odd; born with very light chocolate brown eyes, as she grew they changed very slowly. Now at the age of sixteen, they're a yellow/hazel color, the yellow only coming out when someone pisses her off. They're slightly wide and when she gets excited it's almost as if they glow. Now not a lot of people ever get her too excited so it happens, but Riley can get herself excited nicely when the time comes for it.
Now that we're talking about her body, Riley tends to hide it under layers of clothing, usually wearing two tank tops, a shirt, a thin zip-up hoodie, and a vest or a hoodless jacket. Tights under dark jeans or acid washed jeans are usually on her legs, followed by a pair of runners, or flip flops if its a nice day. Yep. Riley wraps herself in bulk. Beneath the layer of clothing Riley has the very typical hourglass shape; you'd never know under the shirts and sweaters she wears at times. Her arms and legs are just a tad longer than most, and when she was younger she often called herself a monkey. Often Riley calls herself 'fat', or 'chubby'; she's not big boned and she's a little less than 'curvy', but she's not fat or chubby.
Overall, Riley is much like everyone else; typically normal in an average world.
Personality: Riley suffers from bi-polar disorder. That means she suffers from rapid mood swings that can leave her feeling less than perfect. So, because of this, Riley's personality is a mix of personal and what she calls 'social' influences. Between being a female with the 'monthly' gift from Mother Nature, and a female with almost dangerous mood swings, Riley tends to keep away from other people. Almost anything can set her off, usually things that don't go her way. Catching Pokemon is a rare thing for her; not that she can't do it, but she doesn't have the patience. That has to be her breaking point. Ask her to wait, and she'll start to slowly come undone.
Thankfully, over the years she's gotten a little better. Since she's aiming to be a breeder with a full Pokedex at the end of it all, Riley has started to coach herself on how to be a little more patient with herself as well as her team. Since she still has some growing up to do, the sixteen year old believes she can still be immature and childish in her ways, making her already seem like the annoying tag-a-long sister no one wants. On the other hand, Riley is a very sweet, almost motherly person. Those who can handle her have praised the way she is with her Pokemon and Pokemon owned by other people. Riley's natural motherly and happy composure put most people on edge if they've seen her on a bad day.
Now you know about Riley. A nice, crazy, wrapped-around-your-finger sixteen year old.
History: Kenneth and Mercedes Valentine were the couple you either loved or hated. Kenneth worked part time for the Radio Tower before meeting Mercedes, who worked full time at the Magnet Train station. They met when Kenneth had to leave Goldenrod to travel up to Blackthorn. Mercedes was a ticket-puncher (i dont know the real name for it, aha) who ended up taking a week off to travel with Kenneth. It had to be love at first sight, because Mercedes had seen multiple men like Kenneth in her long three year run with the Magnet Train.
They dated on and off for a year; Kenneth was offered a full time spot in the Radio Tower. Mercedes moved in with Kenneth after his second full year working in Goldenrod. The two started getting serious very fast. Kenneth introduced Mercedes to his parents who were iffy on the girl (they had never seen Kenneth with a woman since he had left home when he was merely twelve (to persue a career as a Battler), and had never kept in contact with them until he had gotten a job in Goldenrod. Once the meeting was over with, Mercedes brought Kenneth home to her brother, since her parents had passed away when she was younger. Accepted and blessed, Mercedes and Kenneth were married and lived happily in a small alcove town.
Let's fast forward. Riley was born! Brought up in a small home, she learned to love and respect her family, she was educated on the ways of the Pokemon. It was around her fifth birthday that Riley had decided she wanted to be a 'Pokemon helper,' or a Breeder to her parents. Living around Goldenrod Riley was exposed to the Day Care Center and people cuddling the cute babies of their Pokemon. Once she was eleven, she had been to the Azalea Forest, Azalea Town, Ecruteak City, and New Bark Town. Well traveled, this one. Actually, she was fourteen when she was diganosed with bi-polar disorder.
It only took her a few years to get her hands into a 'Trainer' mindset. Her father wasn't a successful Trainer, and her mother had traveled and collected the right badges to be the woman she was now. Riley looks up to her mom, and so she know looks forwards to her travels, to making her mom proud of her.
Other info: Other than having a personality disorder, Riley plans to become a small-town breeder for those towns who don't have the pleasure of Goldenrod's Day-Care Center.
