OOC NAME >>>>
Appearances can be deceiving...
Standing at 5"1 she has the gangly limbs of someone hitting the middle of their growth spurt and the awkward control to match. Dark eyes peer past a straight nose upon which a pair of rectangular glasses are perched. She has a preference for loose clothing in neutral or faded colours, favouring white t-shirts and either shorts or jeans. She's usually practical enough to keep her dark blue hair up and contained in some form or another but loves the feel of it loose and flowing around her shoulders. However most of the time she doesn't seem worth the tangles that result.
Unafraid to use her hands to illustrate a point she is constantly in motion, often bouncing on her toes when forced to stand in one place. Not caring over much for her appearance beyond hygiene has resulted in short nails, split ends, and tough leathery feet that are result of a childhood that had any and all time spent in the back yard or on vacation wearing no shoes at all or if required some durable sandals that could be worn anywhere form hiking to walking through the surf. With a mixed background her darker skin tone doesn't change much when she doesn't get the chance to spend all her time outside.
But people change with the wind...
Not one to control her emotions Monique is just as prone to crying as to punching someone in the face. Age has at least taught her that sometimes it is best to wait for privacy to truly go wild but in practice it is something she still struggles with. This of course has made her a terrible liar, something she has tried to cover up by telling lies so tall that no-one would believe them anyways and leaving the truth a mystery.
An active person most of her hobbies involve movement and exercise in one form or another. Ranging from classes taken in self defense on weekends to swimming in the local pool when a lack of friends has left her with not much else to do. Perhaps the only hobby that is an exception is one she keeps as a secret to herself. Viewing her skill at it as sub-par she still views drawing and painting as a better way to capture precious memories then any of the state of the art cameras produced by the tech companies of Uberrime City.
She has a soft spot for the underdog and she isn't even sure anymore if her crusade for bug pokemon are a result of it or if the soft spot comes from the understanding of what it's like to be viewed as most likely to lose. Beyond that she doesn't have much use for weakness, often dismissing or outright insulting those she thinks are failing or falling behind at task they been given or chosen to pursue.
So who you were is not who you are.
Adopted by a couple in Uberrime City when she was two years old she grew up with tales of their home towns. Both her Père and her Papa came to Uberrime City for work, and while they found love and built a family in the city it was always a second home to both. Père came from Caecus Town and she has many fond memories of going there every summer to visit relatives. Where as she has only ever heard of Papa's Santalune City from bedtime stories it was the origin of her love of bug pokemon. The stories were filled with her Papa's wistful recollections of the wealth of bug pokemon and how well they are loved in his home town. The comparison to how most of Uberrime viewed them as pests got her into many a playground tussle as a young child. Not about to let anyone prove her Papa wrong, it only solidified into her own passion as she grew older and found that with age did not come wisdom. Her classmates continued to view bug pokemon as the 'joke' pokemon type and her frustration with her peers continued to grow.
Having completed her parent's required ten years of schooling she drooped out of school to start her pokemon journey with a grudge and something to prove. Planning to get a full set of badges and win all the contests she can only using her precious bug pokemon. Her true goal is to become well known and celebrated, all to further understanding and acceptance of her favoured type.
This is your new beginning.
