========== WRITTEN TEST ==========

[For this portion of the application, make your best effort to follow the italicized lines and NPC dialogue with whatever you wish, in order to explain your team. You can even change the setting of the interaction as long as the NPC still asks all the necessary questions. Be creative! You may delete this line if you wish.]

A single streak of blue sky between the dense clouds above Andalusst City marks the start of an unpredictable morning, and it seems like rain or shine could develop at a whim. The assorted traders and pedestrians mulling about seem to be a little wary, trying to park their stalls and carts in shaded areas or making efforts to keep their dry produce hidden away for now.

Throughout the busy streets walked partners. They were small, and gave off a distinct aura, and many avoided them, particularly the male as rhey approached the plain building they were directed too.

While the Explorers Guild Hall isn't exactly the most eye-catching building, it still has a somewhat homely feel to it, even though they had just finished registering. The Explorers seem to have a certain unmistakable aura to them, though one in particular happens to meet their gaze.

The misdreavus nudges her partner, the Zorua, hinting to look in the direction of the Explorer. He grunts reluctantly, nonetheless he turns his head in its direction meeting grass-type's gaze. 

The Servine leaning against a nearby wall inclines her narrow snout towards them and gives a little nod, her bright eyes briefly visible under the shadow of her hat.

"Hey... New, are you?" She speaks with a hint of caution, but her tone is otherwise welcoming. The Zorua made an obviously sarcastic facial expression. "Hmm, stupid question. 'Course you are, I saw you sign in. Admittedly I'm not great with this meet and greet stuff, so how about exchanging names to start things off? You first."

The misdreavus is the first to speak up,"I'm Carmen, and this is Theo," she gestures to her partner. Rather than speaking the Zorua shoots a glare at the Servine, then his partner, before turning away and slightly nodding.

Upon receiving this response, she relaxes a little, folding her small arms across her chest. "Ahh, that's great. Yeah, when you said your name just then, it had that... that "zing". It means you're serious about this, yeah? As for me, my name's Teresa. I'm what you'd call a Guild Assistant, which makes me your Serperior."

Upon saying hearing those last words, Theo quickly turns his head to Teresa. I spiteful looks reaches across his face. Five minutes into the conversation and he is already losing his temper. Carmen quickly reaches to him patting him and reassuring him it would be fine, and to "control himself", before he shrugs her off.

She stared at them with a blank face for a moment, then giggles quietly. "You know, you don't have to be so serious. I don't really care about rank and file, but I do care about honesty. If I tell a joke and it sucks, feel free to roll your eyes."

With that, Theo shrugs and rolls his eyes. Teresa and Carmen stop for a second and then giggle. Theo blushes, shocked by their attitude, and turns with his back facing them.

After the laughing ended she extended one of her thin, green vines and nods, expecting a handshake even though she keeps her arms folded. "So what brings you here, anyway? You from out of town, or...?"

Carmen happily shakes her vine with charisma, but Theo keeps his back turned. "Well I come from the next town over," Carmen began,"Theo, well, he comes from---"  just then Theo turned around, cutting off her sentence with a hand to the mouth.  "Where I come from is irrelevant, and none of your concern" Theo said, finally sharing his cool, dark voice with Teresa. Carmen looked down at the ground and said no more.

Satisfied with your answer, Teresa nods and withdraws her vine.
 "Well that's, cool... Well, whatever the case, you've got a name in mind for your group, right? I didn't get a chance to check your papers, but I do want to get more familiar with our rookie members when I have the time. I'm kinda new to this whole assistant thing, honestly."

"Actually yes, we have a perfect name!" Carmen says excitedly. "Its Team Umbra Amatoribus," Theo speaks again.

A smile creeps over her narrow features when she hears the given name of your team, though it's ambiguous as to whether she found it inspiring or amusing for other reasons. "There's that "zing" again. Feels good to know we've got Pokémon like you joining our Guild. I guess Cassidy wasn't exaggerating when he said the standouts just keep pouring in. Just don't get cocky - confidence is good, but overconfidence in a dungeon is a quick way to get yourself in trouble, along with everyone else in your party." She taps the side of her snout, then clicks her tiny fingers as another question enters her mind. "Oh right, this is very important - why did you want to become an Explorer, hm? Just curious..."

Carmen looks at Theo, unsure if she should answer, afraid she would reveal things that Theo wasn't comfortable with sharing yet. Instead Theo spoke, "Carmen met me one day, it started out as a fight, but we became friends. She shared her story of wanting to be an explorer and see places and experience things. But she told me she was to afraid to go alone, and no one ever supported her ideas. I figured I wasn't doing anything better, so joining her wouldn't real be a loss for me. So I began to travel with her. As we ran low on supplies and money we worked little jobs, but nothing to keep the payment steady. After some researched I discovered this Explorers Guild, and here we are." Carmen stood shocked at the amount of things spoken by Theo in such a short amount of time.

She listens patiently to the explanation, but as soon as they were done with the tale, she immediately began speaking again, her words leaving her mouth more rapidly and urgently than before. "...Because ultimately, the people come first, yeah? There's lots of food in the dungeons, and materials for clothing and medicine! When we go out and find that stuff, it means everyone here gets to have dinner. I mean, you know that, obviously, but just don't forget!"

"Oh we would never forget the help that we have to others,"Carmen answered quickly

Teresa sways her leaf-adorned tail from side to side and taps her foot, momentarily distracted by her own thoughts, a wanting grin plastered across her face. When she snaps back to reality, she lifts her snout into the air and clears her throat. "N-not to sound standoffish, but what exactly do you do, anyway? What skills or talents do you have to offer the Guild? Everyone's good at something, I think."

"Well, I'm good with people! I mean, I give off that ghostly darker aura, "Carmen looked at the ground shyly before continuing,"but once people talk to me they end up getting along with me very well! They trust me almost instantly!" Theo decided to answer for himself again,"I bring the brute force. If the people don't listen to Carmen, they get beat to a--"
Even before they'd finished properly answering, Teresa clicks her fingers and purses her lips, as if hearing that mythical zing yet again. "I can just feel it, you do what you do and do it with everything you've got. 'Cause in this guild, when a giver gives, then the giver gets... gotten... gets give-- eh, well you get what you give, or something. Whatever, it's written down on that big plaque in the hall. Just do your best and come see me if you need any help."

Sounding much more cheerful than when she'd first approached, she gives them a little wave and turns to immediately engage another group of recruits nearby, no doubt asking them similar questions. The life of a Guild Assistant must be a busy one.
Upon Teresa's departure Carmen and Theo approached the guild doors. They stopped in the doorway and glanced up toward the top of the building. They then turned there heads toward one another, and make a moment of serious eye contact, only to be ended by two large sighs. They begin to walk into the building side by sides, ready to embrace their new life as Explorer Guild members.

~I hope everything looks alright!
