... This reminds me of a head canon I have of Keith coming form a rich family who is really really over baring and a abusive so he ran away when he was really young an juts kind of moves around for a few years before he could become a ranger.

I can't imagine any of the Ranger protagonists coming from an upperclass background...

Also, your brilliant answer to my dumb comment. It seems as if I don't feel like thinking lately... .-.

it's all good man! the way I see it all of us ranger fans only really have a few other to talk with so we have to stay nice and close. It is a small but strong fandom! Also I LOVE talking about head canons with people!   Also don't sweet it we all have times where we don't think!

I like yours as well! In some ways they are alive though sin we both see him as having a hard childhood ( Be it in different ways though)  I would love to hear any other head canons you have if you woudl like to talk about them! None of my friends IRL are into the games like I am so I am always looking fr people ( or pokemon) to talk about it with!

I like to think that the Ranger School is far from being perfect, "proven" by mostly the Kincaid "incident". xP (That, and what good is it for a story if the Union was too perfect) Of course, it still needs its good credentials and professionalism given that the Union is a highly trusted organization (probably governmental), and I actually had to cut down on the "imperfections" that I was giving it xD

oh I like that! I could see how they try so hard to keep it good but there keeps being people who slip though the cracks. May I ask about you age head canon for gettign in and out of ranger school?

I'm thinking the minimum age for enrollment is ten, to coincide with the age where a Trainer Card can be issued. :o The maximum age might be much later than you might think. I'm thinking the age of retirement for a Ranger could be 55-60 (or later, since my Pokemon humans live slightly longer than real-life humans) so early enough that a graduate could build a career out of it.

As for getting out, currently thinking that the absolute minimum-maximum are two to ten years. Average students take 4-6 years to pass the graduation exam. If a graduated student comes back to change their path of career it could take them about a year long term. (I'm thinking that's what Kate did. It took her four years to graduate, but she went back later for a year to become a Mechanic)

Kellyn took his minimum two years to graduate. Since Keith and Rhythmi were already enrolled in the School before Kellyn, they probably took an extra term besides their minimum two years. (That would also mean their birthdays are earlier. But I have no intention to make them a full year older than Kellyn at this point xD)

Right. How did you arrive to this one, though? If you don't mind answering. (I like hearing about thoughts)

Well I always sow Keith as kind of a free sprite with something to prove. Then one day I heard this song talkign about rising up and proving yourself along with going away ( we are the worries) Form there I started to think of a way for Keith to run off and still prove himself. So I pictured him form a rich family where the dad is a bit abusive and hits them ( yes them he has a younger brother in my mind) and there mother.  Keith gets sick of this and can't let go of his dream of changing this a and making things better for any and everyone he can! So one day he tells his brother he is leaving and just goes. He never looks back and never had a regret about it. At first he would just travel around and then hear about rangers and sine himself up! Form here he still keep a bit of the 'im great' attitude form his old life but is really a nice person deep down. So that is kind of why he likes to mess with people and tease them. Slaoly that mind sets goes more into who he really is and such and that is how he is in the main game.

I like how you explain his whole attitude in the beginning of the game. Makes more sense than mine... xP

As for me, I just latched onto the fact he was pretty mean to the player character in the beginning, and basically ran with it into an overall unhappy childhood. xP He is remarkable that in the end he believed in justice and good faith all along, but I must admit that it's also a kind of stretch in real-life term given his tender age. I only maintain that Pokemon world 10-year-olds are probably capable of more things than real-life 10-year-olds...

who ever is threating that little boy needs their butt kicked big time! Maybe Kellyn in the future can build a time machine and travel back in the past to protect little Keith! ^.^
