As one of the faces of Kanto’s propaganda posters, Phyllis endeavours to maintain a chirpy and upbeat persona at all times. She’s always enthusiastic, often irritatingly so, focusing on spitting out messages of morale and keeping a smile on her face at all times. For a large part, she is actually this optimistic, and thus it hasn’t taken a terrible strain on her to earnestly embrace the role of morale booster. In the face of something that would be dangerous to her optimism she tends to have a rather stated non-reaction as she takes a moment to mentally compose how to best respond. The same can be seen when she’s surprised, or generally feels an emotion other than deafeningly chipper.Backstory:
Phyllis comes from a highly patriotic family - her father Peter having been a pilot during the Great War while her mother Kathy was a military nurse. She lived a stable suburban childhood, her bed-time readings punctuated steadily by her father’s tales of camaraderie from his time in the Kanto Air Force.
Having found herself to be quite charismatic in her childhood, she found herself drawn to performing as she grew older, encouraged by her ever-supportive family. She found herself capable of staying in character even without lines, being able to play the love-struck damsel or demure princess to the crowd even as she stepped off stage. Though never a star, she managed to rise to the screen playing b-movie love interests.
But then the war struck. Though the tales she’d heard from her father tempted her to enrol like her dear brother Arthur, she didn’t feel that her place was in fighting. Instead she went on to keep doing what she did best – performing. She became involved in the propaganda scene in Kanto, posing on posters and entertaining troops and doing her best to boost morale in every way she could. And all the while still smiling, smiling to the crowd.Pokemon:Wilbur | Taillow | Timid | Scrappy | MalePokemon Bio / Personality:
Wilbur is a runner, not a fighter. He tends to use his speed and flight to flee from aggressive Pokémon at the first chance rather than engage them, and if in contest with a rival Taillow over food or territory would rather either steal it or back down. This tendency to run at the first sign of danger has made him an excellent survivalist, but a wholly unsuitable Pokémon for front-line combat. As such he has been assigned to Phyllis for use as a messenger. His loyalty to her is unquestionable as long as she remembers to feed him.Rita | Vulpix | Ninetales | Drought | FemalePokemon Bio / Personality:
Rita was a pampered favourite puppy in the wild before being caught for use in the army. She's a friendly, affectionate creature who enjoys receiving affection and lots of brushing from her new trainer Phyllis, but who doesn't really understand the whole war thing and why they can't all just settle down and get on. She is more like a pet to Phyllis than a battle companion, and it's probably for the best - every time this little Vulpix does get into a scrape its uncontrolled flames tend to cause more collateral damage than damage to her foe.
With the Rogues in play, the Kanto government has stepped up security for even its civilian base workers in the case of treachery. It was through this program that Phyllis was given the fire stone that would turn her pet into a powerful battle-ready Pokémon. Her evolution has made her braver, and her loyalty to her doting master makes her a powerful bodyguard. She is, however, still as poor at controlling her flames, leading to her being a dangerous opponent to not just her enemies but the people and objects around her.
