"I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug."
     - Excerpt, Modern Hippocratic Oath

     General Characteristics

Name: Caleb Flare
Other Names: "Mage", "Healer", Doctor Peppers
Type: PC
Kingdom: Tairngire Riocht
Titles: Mediciner for Tairngire Riocht

     Personal Characteristics

Age: 26
Birth Place: Lenx
Hometown: Tairngire Riocht

Primary Objective: Right now, to find the seal that keeps Xerneas from affecting the Realm and break it.
Secondary Objectives: Assisting Dainichi in their civil war, trying to find some cure for his sister's infection - or a Shaymin chimera willing to hold it at bay.

Desires: The cheerful smile of someone fully recovered; to find an experience mage to study under.
Secrets: Wh-WHAT SECRETS!?  //nervous laugh//
Quirks: Seems to be under the impression that the more ornately he is dressed, the better a physician he is.  ...Caleb is sorely mistaken.
Morality: Caleb lives by the 'do no harm' creed of modern doctors - even though he understands that there is a time and place for the guilty to be punished, he can't bear the sight of such a thing.
Perception: There has to be a better way; Caleb is at odds with his sister's logical approach to things more often than not, and more than willing to put buckets of effort towards some slightly less painful result.

     Spiritual Characteristics

Religion: Caleb thanks Shaymin on a regular basis for providing him and the other mediciners with herbs to treat their patients.  ...but recently, he's been making desperate prayers to a sleeping Xerneas.
Superstitions: If you look above the door frames in his hospital, you'll find a horseshoe on every single one to catch as much misfortune as he can before it can get to his patients.  He polishes them nervously when things don't go to plan.
Virtues: Temperance, Diligence, Patience, Kindness
Vices: Greed, Cowardice

     Likes and Dislikes

Likes: Cleaning out the infirmary enough that he doesn't have to worry over piles and piles of sick people; wandering through a well-stocked market and finding the book-sellers.
Dislikes: Any news that sounds like an epidemic; running out of supplies; having to handle someone roughly because they will not accept treatment for their ailments.


Equipment: What's in the box?  Ahh, jars of things collected, powders, herbs, elixirs...  Several metal implements for cutting, digging, and stitching.  Everything he needs to, in the worst case, remove a limb.
Wardrobe: Ridiculous.  His father died when he was young and his mother encouraged the silly dress.  Someone really needs to tell this boy that he looks ridiculous.  Charlotte's tried, but he figures it's just sibling jabs.

     Social Characteristics

Emotional Stability: Relatively stable, but he takes to stress like a duck to water.  Often needs someone to remind him to take a breath and think logically when things get hectic.
Humor: Ahahahahahahahahahahahah-?  ((He doesn't get it, but don't think he's weird, he'll laugh too!  D: ))
Reputation: A nervous, but well-meaning turd.  He originally learned his trade under someone who specialized in treating children.  The transition to grown military men was...  ...jarring.
Status: Unmarried

     Interpersonal Connections

Immediate Family: Charlotte Flare (sister)
Ancestors: Pfft.  He spawned overnight in a cabbage patch.

Allies: Dale Ford, Pippin Daniels, Z
Enemies: . . . . . .
Followers: -
Friends: (Does Charlotte count?  ...T...Trypo, maybe?)
Heroes: -
Pokemon: Lazuli the Chimera, Lapiz the Chimera, Lani the Delibird, Spoopy the Bellsprout
Rivals: -

     Physical Characteristics

Height: 5'9"
Weight: 178 lbs
Heritage: Human
Hair Color: Light Brown
Hair Length:  Medium-long, he ties it back into a poofy ponytail.
Eye Color:  Pink/red.
Scars:  Nah.
Tattoos and Piercings: Nope.


Anima: Caleb is determined to make the world a better place by healing those who have been injured-
Persona: -but GOOD GOD, WHY DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO BE SO DIFFICULT!?  He's constantly worrying if what he's doing is the right thing and it makes him hesitate.

     Final Notes?

Caleb never was all that physically strong or decisive - he's always looked up to his sister for the strength she had.  But when Charlotte was injured while training, Caleb discovered his true calling - to be a healer.  Pokemon and Person alike, he's trained under several more experienced mages to learn their techniques and tricks - he could fill a small library with the notes he's taken down.  He does have a handful of younger trainees that work underneath him, and when work is slow, he takes time to train them on which herbs do what to people.  He'd be a better doctor if he didn't shy away from treating stubborn people who refuse to be treated... but there's cowardice for ya.

He is currently stationed in Mizumi, Dainichi to help with the war efforts.  He went along to keep an eye on his sister, and, well, has been pretty busy.  Some minor cut has turned into a real mess over there, and now he's scrambling to find a new cure and begging both Shaymin and Xerneas for a blessing to prevent a long and painful death.
