Duality OCT - Aston Renshaw by piyostoria Duality OCT - Aston Renshaw by piyostoria
:iconduality-oct:
EDIT: Added new Pokemon, and updated Ridley's form.

More on him:
Character Design sheet | Intro Comic | Round 1 | Round 2


Character Data

Name: Aston Renshaw
Age: 16
History:
Currently travelling on his own, he used to live in Anville Town with his father. His father was a skilled carpenter who made elaborate wood-works for the richer parts of the society, famous enough that even the King's castle commissioned him once. That makes the Renshaw family considerably wealthy; but that doesn't mean Aston was spoiled as a child. His father taught him some of the family trade; that involves going into the forest for materials, so Aston is quite familiar with the forest (around Anville Town). Had everything went well, Aston would've become the heir of the family business.
However, now that the kingdom is preparing itself to a war, Aston's father got less and lesser jobs; he had to make do with building less artistic furniture and other crude carpentry to keep the business going. Seeing that it depresses his father, Aston decided that he's going to help end this conflict; or, at least, support what he deems to be right. Besides, traveling would mean he has to support himself, therefore lessen his father's burden.

Personality:
He talks a lot, and he talks like he's excited most of the time.
Quite naive and cheerful.
Confident, but not a blind optimist; he sometimes worries that a someone like him won't make it as a Ranger. However, this is what he wants, so he will do his best.
He can be quite driven; his father originally didn't want him to leave, but he insisted. And he will fight for what he thinks is right.
Aston doesn't understand how people could actually support Prince Reinhardt. However, he's still aware that he's just hearing rumors, so he only hopes that what he heard about the princes are right.
Fighting-wise, he's not very good, actually. The knife is a gift from his father, but he has never trained to use it. He also has a hatchet with him, but it's more of a tool than a weapon. He can probably swing it aimlessly. Basically, he'd rather leave the fighting to Ridley.

Pokemon:
- Ridley (Sawsbuck)
Aston (10 by then) was helping his father collecting materials in the forest when he met Ridley (still a Deerling by then). Ridley was curious on why humans cut down wood; he walked straight to Aston and just asked him. They met and talked several times, and eventually Ridley decided to stay with him. He likes listening to Aston talk, but he sometimes wish that Aston is a bit quieter. He's curious, a bit quiet, but does make jokes sometimes. Could be said that he's Aston's best friend.
Since he was sort of "domesticated", and doesn't spend much time in the forest anymore, he had stopped changing his form for the last couple of years and stuck with his winter worm all year. However, now that he's travelling with Aston, he's slowly adapting back his seasonal change and starts to turn into his spring form.
- Sophie (Skiploom)
She likes tending people's gardens, at first in secret; until the Renshaws found out who has been doing the gardening. She and Aston quickly became friends. She really likes flowers; she'd decorate her head by growing/collecting extra foliage and flowers. She sometimes decorates Aston's head and Ridley's horns, too, and they're too nice to refuse. Since she's a sweet, beauty-loving creature, Aston was surprised to know that she'd follow him on his travel. War isn't exactly a beautiful thing.
- Lex (Gligar)
Met in the forest during Aston's Ranger test.
- Blue (Dewott)
Met before the night strike of the Thieves' Guild.

That's all for now, I think! I'm way too excited for this OCT >3<

I hate to bring Hetalia into this (since I haven't done so with anything in a while), but he really does remind me of Denmark, but that just means he's a cutie. UvU*

im sure almost everyone wanted to know their critique ^^; i wonder how many they actually got around doing so far. it'd probably take a long longer than it did for them to see who passed and didnt. they work so hard. i kinda want to help them out if i wasnt a contestant... and if only i was a respectable judge of art

hahah I bet, last time I heard Shoeless mentioned something about over 50 notes. XD
Well, as my friend said once, "fake it until you make it". xD (about being a respectable judge of art, whatever that is)

well, i spent the past 4 hours reading and understanding all the rules to this group and all about each faction and their leaders and tests, and i have decided: im aiming to be a ranger too ^^ i was thinking thieves at 1st because most of my favorite pokemon are dark, ghost, or bug, but im a good person down at heart and id rather work for the older prince rather than thieves and murderers. and besides, i can relate to grass, water,and ground (not as much flying) much better than the ones i favor

It's been implied that the first prince isn't as nice as he looks, though! Probably.

A mod has mentioned, "Who says he wants peace, though?" ahaha. Just saying that it looks like things are going to be more complicated once more story is revealed.
