Name: Babette Bouffee | Baby Puff | Babs or Puffs
Trainer Type: Fairy Tale Girl
Hometown: Goldenrod City
Hair: A soft, pastel pink that falls in waves to the middle of her back. She has choppy bangs she often fiddles with absent mindedly. Babette's hair style changes daily; pigtails, braids, loose curls, buns, etc. She is always looking for new ways to style it.
Eyes: A bright pink. Wide and always on the look out for cute or beautiful things.
Skin: A pale pink, fairly unblemished, though she burns very easily.
Style: Babette considers herself very fashionable, but she only seems to like clothes that come in pink. Occasionally she will accessorize with whites, blacks, or purple, but otherwise she has a very pink wardrobe. This means her general attire leans on the very feminine or childish side, though she hasn't made the connection yet.
In The World: Babette has what some would call a "big" personality. She is most certainly loud, though she often doesn't realize how loud. When she enters a room, she lets everyone know, either by a particularly dramatic entrance, a tactless comment, or literally announcing, "Baby Puff is here." This "big" personality is also accompanied by her deep well of emotions, which she expresses with incredible ease. She shares her joys, woes, and frustrations in equal measure, the thought of restraining herself never crossing her mind. Much like a small child, her moods can be easily tracked by her expressions or words; there is no need to read between the lines with Babette. She will tell you what's there and then some. Fortunately, she is overall good natured, and doesn't hold onto bad moods for very long. It is a simple task to raise her spirits or sooth her temper by flattery or anything adorable. Though she is sixteen, her emotional maturity is closer to that of an elementary child, despite her insistence that she's incredibly mature.
In Her Heart: Babette's inner life is not much different then her outer one. For the most part, she is honest about herself, and doesn't hide her thoughts or feelings from anyone. The only part of herself she actively keeps to herself is a small seed of self doubt. She knows she has been pampered and babied all her life, so doesn't know if she actually has what it takes to achieve her goals. But her will is such that she refuses to cower behind this anxiety, even if it rears its head whenever there is even a mild inconvenience.
Childhood: Born to Marie and Claude Bouffee, Babette is their only child. Their treasure! Their jewel! Their whole world! The pair both came from wealth, and settled in Goldenrod City to raise their precious Baby. Babette wanted for nothing, being surrounded by everything her heart desired, and then some. But what was most precious to her in the world was her mother's Jigglypuff, Jewel. The Pokemon treated Babette sweetly, often acting like a nanny to her alongside her father's Chansey, Chan. She loved them both deeply like only a small child can. It wasn't until she was five that she even realized they weren't her Pokemon. The devastation this realization created in her made her go on a food strike! Well, until her parents bribed her with cake for dinner. From then on, she swore she would have her own Pokemon when she grew up, and they would be just as adorable as Jewel and Chan.
Adolescence: As she grew, she continued to have a charmed life, having many friends to share all that her parents gave her. She had no real thoughts of her future besides eventually getting Pokemon of her own at some point, but was content with what she had. Her parents mentioned how someday she would have to run their estate, manage the family Puff Pastry business, but that wouldn't happen for a long time. Until then, she intended do whatever she wanted. It wasn't until her parents took her to the Goldenrod Gym on a tour that she began to think of anything outside of herself. Meeting Whitney, and seeing her battle ignited something in Babette. This was a beautiful woman who had cute, adorable Pokemon, and she was making a name for herself. She was respected. She was powerful. And all the while, she was surrounded by cute, pink Pokemon.
Babette realized that while she was surrounded by adorable things, none of it was hers. Even her name wasn't her own; it was attached to her parents and their business. Whatever respect she had, it had not been earned. Not like Whitney. This moment began Babette's transformation into Baby Puff.
The Past Year: Baby's parents had always given their daughter what she wanted, and so didn't know how to say no when she asked to start her own Pokemon journey. To leave home and pursue her own path in life, separate from them. They tried everything to convince her to give up this path; offering her Pokemon, her own condo, more clothes then she would ever wear in a lifetime. They even considered moving to the Alola region to give her someplace new to be excited by. But she stood firm, refusing all bribes, even those given by Jewel or Chan, though those were the hardest of all.
Finally, on her sixteenth birthday, her parents relented. They gifted her with a traveling outfit, backpack, and a promise to take her directly to New Bark Town to get her very first Pokemon. Baby finally saw a future for herself that day. Not as a pampered heiress, nor as a pastry owner. But as herself.
- To catch an Igglybuff and evolve it into a Jigglypuff
- To catch and raise ONLY cute Pokemon (She doesn't actually have criteria for this; she'll just know they're cute when she sees them.)
- To open her very own Pokemon beauty salon and fashion boutique without help from her parents
Other Info: Though she is an heiress, she will not have access to parents money, per her request. She may instantly regret this, but she's stubborn, and intends to "rough" it. Even if she doesn't fully understand what that means.
