Name: Alfred Rosa Stein
Job: Circus Physician
Wish: `` I wish my patients were not afraid of me``
Alfred`s reputation of being `` mad doctor `` made him decide to wish for his patients to stop fearing him. They no longer fear him now; instead, they hate him and want him dead! The only place where patients can truly appreciate Stein`s work is in the Circus.
Personality: With Stein, the phrase `` don`t judge a book by its cover `` matches him perfectly. On the outside he looks like a deranged scientist from a laboratory, but in reality all Stein wants to do is help people. He is a kind and talkative man, who is always willing to listen to any problems you may have. He is never one to shy away from a conversation, and can often be seen roaming around the circus looking for mons to have a good conversation with, perhaps because he rarely ever got a chance to do so in the outside world. Having dealt with various surgeries and autopsies in his life, Stein has indeed seen it all, and is always ready to help a mon out, no matter how gory or personal the injury is. Stein`s urge to help mons can go a bit overboard at times, and he has been known to chase after frightened children in the circus because he heard them sneeze or cough and wanted to check up on them! Stein is also very wise, having travelled around the world in his youth, he will always have a story or morale speech to give when the situation demands it. Not only is he a doctor, but he can be considered a therapist as well! Stein also loves a good pun, but he can never seem to deliver a good one himself…
History: Ever since he nursed a feral zigzagoon back to health as a young Spritzee, Alfred Rosa Stein dreamed of becoming a professional physician. Nothing warmed his heart more than the chance to help others and save lives, so Alfred studied hard throughout his youth so that he could be accepted into a prestigious Medical School in his hometown of Laverre, once he was old enough. When the time came, Alfred was happily accepted into the Laverre Medical School, and graduated with full honors. However, Alfred did not feel like he had learned everything there was to learn about medicine; his passion for his craft was strong, and he wanted to learn as much as he could! As soon as he graduated, he decided to travel around the world to learn about all the different medicines and methods of healing from different regions. Alfred picked up many new methods on his travels, both old and modern, filling up his notebooks with diagrams, ingredients, and instructions for various medicines.
When he returned to Laverre city several years later, Alfred was ready to start his career as a Doctor.
With the help of his parents, who were wealthy upperclassmons, he bought a vacant building and set up shop in his hometown of Laverre. Things went well for a while. Patients would visit Stein regularly, and Alfred would patch them up! However, things changed one day, when a snot nosed brat who hated going to the Doctors came into the office to receive a check up. The mother let the boy into Stein’s office on his own, telling him he was a “big, brave boy” for coming to the Doctor’s Office. The boy ignored her, he was still upset for being dragged here. Then, a nasty little idea plopped into his head as he entered the room. Doctor Stein, who was none the wiser, happily greeted the young lad with a smile and started the check up. However, right as they began to start the check up, the boy let out a scream and bolted out of the room. He ran crying to his mother, claiming that Stein tried to “ stick weird needles into him” and “asked him if there were any organs he didn’t need”. Dr.Stein was shocked; he did no such thing! While the mother didn’t seem to believe the story her son was telling, she looked concerned and decided to cancel the appointment. Doctor Stein was a bit distraught, but shook it off and tried to carry on with his day. However, to the surprise of the good doctor, more incidents started happening. Other children who entered his office would do the same thing, claiming to their parents that Dr.Stein was secretly a mad scientist who wanted to perform experiments on him.
Unbeknownst to Stein, the first brat who started it had gotten all his troublemaking friends to join in, causing a scene because they thought it was amusing. Rumours would spread from kids to their mothers and fathers, and although there was no evidence that Stein was a ‘mad scientist’ , parents decided to take their kids to other doctors instead, just to play it safe. If so many children were reporting the same thing, then maybe something was off about that Doctor, right? Over the next couple days, Stein noticed kids and adults alike avoiding him as he walked down the streets. Alfred was confused and deeply upset. He was a sensitive mon, and it hurt him to see so many people avoiding him on the account of mere rumours! He began to grow very anxious, and wanted to cool off somewhere. He closed up shop for the afternoon, deciding to go visit a travelling Circus that had recently entered town. That would help calm his nerves, right?
The circus sure was a spectacle, but it wasn’t enough to lighten Alfred’s concern. The look on his beak must have been obvious, for soon a tall, dark, and devilishly handsome mon approached Dr.Stein, asking him what ever was the matter. The two had some small talk for a bit. The man introduced himself as Mr.Dark, ringmaster of Circus Darkrai, and he seemed to be a very thoughtful and caring individual. Alfred found himself enjoying the man’s company, and asked if it was ok if he vent out a bit of his concerns to him, just to get some things off his chest. The Darkrai said yes. Alfred told him how his career as a physician might be at stake. Years of studying and travelling all wasted thanks to some cruel and unjust rumours. Alfred ended his little venting session with a sigh, murmuring “ I wish my patients were not afraid of me…” The Darkrai smiled, and said. “ Your wish, has been granted.”
Alfred was a little confused by that last statement, but decided it was time to depart and deal with this whole rumour business. As he left Circus grounds and walked to his office, he noticed the townsfolk started glaring at him, more so than the last few days. Alfred started to grow quite concerned, and sped up his pace. Suddenly, people around the street began to surround him. There was a look of pure hatred in their eyes. “ LOOK! It’s the mad scientist! GET HIM! KILL HIM!! “ They yelled as they began to charge him. Alfred bolted back the way he came. He was terrified and confused, all he knew was that he needed to lose this mob, and the best chance to do that was to hide in the big crowds of the circus. Alfred didn't look back, not slowing his pace until he was well within circus grounds and deep in the crowds. As soon as he was sure nobody had followed him, he hid behind one of the tents to catch his breath. But then he heard footsteps behind him, and to his surprise, the Darkrai Ringmaster from before was standing in front of him, a wide sneer plastered across his face.
“ Why the long face, Dr.Stein? You wished for your patients to no longer fear you, and I made it so! “ Said Mr.Dark. Alfred stood there, looking at the Darkrai with a bewildered expression. “ What, no thank you? And here I thought you were a gentlemon…” Dark chuckled. “ Well, I have another gift to offer you, good Doctor. Join my Circus, and I promise you your work will never go unappreciated again...so long you don’t leave… “ He sneered. Faced with no other option he could think of, Alfred joined the ranks of Circus Darkrai. The Circus Physician was born.

Wish: " I WORKED. SO. HARD. TO GET TO WHERE I WAS IN LIFE. IT'S NOT FAIR! I just wish I could go back to being a working mon, I would do anything! I would give away my dorsal fin if it meant I could work again!"
Ted had recently been let go from a company, because of an accident that left his hands permanently damaged. He wished for an opportunity to work again. Mr.Dark obliged, healing Ted's hands back to normal...
Backfire: However, Mr.Dark took Ted's comments literally, and so, Ted's dorsal fin fell off his back, leaving a massive bloody wound that gives Ted agonizing pain. So long as Ted stays in the Circus, the wound 'closes' up, and Ted does not feel any pain. If Ted were to walk out of the circus with the intention to leave forever, the wound would open up, causing Ted to collapse in pain and eventually bleed out and die.
Personality: Ted Worthington is a mon of business. He loves being productive, doing work, and helping to keep the circus running smoothly! Keeping himself busy makes Ted happy, as he starts to feel lost and bored very quickly when he has nothing to do. Ted keeps a serious and professional attitude almost 24/7, as he takes his role in the Circus VERY seriously. Don't bother making jokes or being sarcastic with Ted, as they will more often than not go over his head. Ted is polite and respectful to his fellow workers, regardless of their role in the circus. However, Ted's polite and professional demeanor can quickly fade away when something, or someone, interferes with his work. Ted has little patience for anyone trying to interfere or distract him from his work, and he will quickly grow quite upset, scolding whoever is foolish enough to get in the way of his business. Ted can be a bit of a suck up to his superiors, constantly showering them with praise, complimenting them, and always asking if he can be of service - this can come off as either endearing or incredibly annoying. Ted is also a tattletale- although it isn't his job to do so, if Ted notices his fellow workers slacking off or not doing their jobs correctly, he will jot it down in his notes and send it to his superiors, believing that doing so will increase his standing with them.
History: Ted was born in Castelia City in the Unova Region. Even from his early days, the Remoraid was recognized by his family as a hardworking mon, scoring high grades in all of his classes in school, and taking the time to study on weekends when other kids would be playing outdoors. Ted LOVED to work, being productive made him feel quite successful! When Ted became an adult, he decided he wanted to become an accountant, and after lots of studying, hard work and determination, he managed to land a job as an accountant in a very pristine banking company! Ted loved his role in the company, and for a while, life was good...
However, when Ted was 35, tragedy struck. Ted got into a car accident, leaving his hands and lower arms severely damaged. The doctors did their best, but Ted would no longer be able to use his hands for anything, including work. Ted was heartbroken, but that was not all. After he got out of the hospital, Ted was informed that the Banking Company had let him go. There was a lot of competition for spots in that company, and Ted's role was quickly replaced by someone in better physical condition. Ted was absolutely miserable. After all his hard work, his dream job was taken away from him and there was nothing he could do about it. Ted's younger brother acted as his caretaker after the accident. Seeing how distraught his brother was, he decided to take Ted to the travelling circus that had stopped by in town this month, in an effort to lift his spirits...
The acts and performances of the Circus were dazzling, but they weren't enough to improve Ted's mood. In fact, visiting the circus only made Ted even more upset, seeing all the visitors playing the booths with their HANDS... Ted scolded his brother for bringing him here, and before he got a chance to say anything, Ted stormed off. His brother lost him in the crowds. Ted was lost as well, and soon he found himself in some corner of the Circus, kicking at the litter on the ground in frustration. A tall, dark, and devilishly handsome mon heard Ted's little outburst and approached him, asking what was wrong. Ted, in his foul mood, vented off all his troubles to the mysterious mon, a Darkrai.
" I WORKED. SO. HARD. TO GET TO WHERE I WAS IN LIFE. IT'S NOT FAIR! I just wish I could go back to being a working mon, I would do anything! I would give away my dorsal fin if it meant I could work again!"
The Darkrai smiled. " Your wish, has been granted."
To Ted's amazement, his hands suddenly healed, right before his eyes! But Ted didn't have any time to celebrate this miracle, for no sooner had his hands healed, he felt a sudden sharp pain on his back. Something fell to the ground. Ted turned around, and to his horror, he saw his entire dorsal fin, clean off his back and on the ground. Ted gasped in shock. " What..WHAT IS HAPPENING-" Ted could barely get the words out as agonizing pain seeped through his back.
" One dorsal fin, for the opportunity to work again, as you requested. My name is Mr.Dark, Ringmaster of Circus Darkrai. Join my Circus, and I can guarantee you a job here- and help deal with the little..situation behind you. DO we have a deal? " sneered the Darkrai.
Ted was scared, confused, and in pain- he wanted the pain to stop as soon as possible, so he agreed to Mr.Dark's deal. The pain in his back went away, though his dorsal fin was permanently lost.
Ted was now able to work as an accountant once again. Although it wasn't his old company, it was still better than nothing, right?
