Has more than a passing interest in "aliens" (he considers it a bit of a guilty pleasure). Granted, it isn't the most respected field of study, and yeah, a lot of it is a load of baloney, but what if?
The Calderón family is native to the Desert Biome. During the early years of his childhood, however, his family lived in another biome to the west. At the age of 6, Tito's grandfather passed away, so the family moved back to Desert, living with his grandmother in her house until she, too, passed ten years later. His mother worked as an architect–her efforts played a large role in the construction of the self-sustaining villages bordering the central desert Oasis. His father worked as a nurse in the local Pokémon Center.
After finishing school, Tito traveled around Verot, partially to play at being a Pokémon trainer, and partially to find inspiration. Along his journeys, he made several friends, including Gabrielle Duchamp, a woman from the Forest Biome. They kept in touch after Tito returned to Desert, but it wasn't until years later that they actually started dating. A few years after that, following the birth of their son, they finally decided to get married.
Tito's primary job, outside of his spiffy keen title of "Assistant Leader," is art. He has a few murals that he's worked on across Desert, one of which is on a prominent building in Desert's Capital. Most of his subject matter consists of landscapes or wildlife.Likes/Dislikes:
+ 'Alien' Pokémon
+ Grass-type Pokémon
+ The feeling of warm earth beneath his feet
- Wearing shoes
- the feeling of sand stuck in your shoes
- The very rare sunburn
- Alcoholic beverages
- Cities (and isn't the biggest fan of living in one)Relationships:
Mother (60); Father (63); Younger brother (24)
Gabrielle Duchamp Calderón (32)–Wife
Manny Calderón (5)–son
Renuka Pant–Associate/Boss Lady
- At his place of residence, there is a pretty large community garden that he spends a fair amount of time at.
Tito's not really one for battling. Not really his gig, most of the time. But, when he has to battle, he mostly just messes around with his opponent, confusing them and using their own attacks against them.RP Info:
I do prefer RPing over Skype, but I would also be up for it here on dA or on Tumblr.Pokemon Info
Ridiculously friendly. Likes running a lot. Also sleeps a lot.Short History:
Galdo was given to Tito as his first Pokémon over 20 years ago. Nowadays, Galdo doubles as a form of transportation.Name:
Super chill. Always seems to be swaying. Really
likes music, and will try to imitate his favorite songs.Short History:
Joined up w/ Tito at an oasis near the southern border of Desert during his stint as a full-time trainer. Acquired not too long after Galdo.Name:
Curious. Doesn't much care for being told not to do something. She has her own corner of the garden that she won't let anyone touch.Short History:
Tito and Kit found Mindy in the middle of some recently-discovered ruins during his travels. Mindy opted to follow Tito around, while the egg that she was holding went to Kit.Name:
Notorious prankster. Little shit. You know she likes you if she doesn't try sticking you. She's not very big on exploring, though; Georgia prefers the comfort of her garden.Short History:
Tito's newest pain in the butt. She was one of the Pokémon living in one of the community gardens until she befriended Tito and left with him and his team.Name:
Tito absolutely meant to capture Pierce in that cave. Of course he did. 100% intentional. No screaming involved. Yes.Name:
Quiet, but easily amused. Tends to just sit and watch most of the time. He can communicate telepathically, but opts either to not talk or to talk cryptically. Has a bizarre fascination with Hawaiian-print shirts.Short History:
Tito's not exactly sure where Cali came from. He just sort of...showed up one day.
