Name: Jack John Phantom
Jack Phantom is one of the skinniest humans you might ever see. He has not gained any weight since he graduated High School at 18. Must be due to his metabolism. He has purple eyes due to contacts but his birth eye color is forest green. He's always been tall, around 5'10 with sleek brown hair. He loves a certain jacket, it has black leather on the outside and fake fur on the inside, which was the last birthday present Emmabelle gave him. You'll find him wearing this the majority of the time. Under the jacket, he wears a simple white tee and baggy grey or black pants. He owns a small jade key necklace that was formerly Emmabelle's, he gained possession of it after her suicide. He has his mother's golden wedding ring, it motivated him to find his mother until he found out the truth [Explained in history, adult section].
He has a burn on his left arm from a Houndoom. He isn't sure if it's cursed or not. He is also scarred on the left side of his chest due to some bullies when he was younger (He vividly remembers his dad sending his Mightyena at them). He also keeps an Ipod (if possible?) on him, in case he wants some mood music. (A couple bands you'll find are Nightwish and Paramore.) His right arm is noticeably smaller then his left and it's reverse with his legs however, because he wears baggy pants, the difference in the legs is harder to tell then in his arms.
He is a bit brainy, being a fast learner but very playful and fun-loving. There is no moment where you can't have fun with him. He loves to joke around and play the occasional prank. He likes strong Pokemon, but he won't mind working with weaker Pokemon, and loves to win battles. He is known to calculate what moves do what and how it would impact the battle. Many say there isn't a dull moment with him and he has many friends to hang out or battle with.
But underneath the fun-loving playfulness, is a person who's heart is heavy with sadness. His heart has been shattered many times in the past. He prefers to sit down with a nice book or writing some poetry then going with girls who would abandon him in a moments notice. He has many friends, besides his daemon, but his best friend was his crush Emmabelle, who committed suicide after her long-time boyfriend broke up with her.
However, there is one point that must be avoided at all times: His fits of rage. Elizabeth can only control the rage for a few moments, allowing time for others to escape before it comes out. During that time, everything around him is either broken or punched. This is a rarity because, after the fit, he'll feel incredibly guilty for a few weeks, even though Elizabeth will tell him many a time that it's not his fault.
Jack John Phantom was born to Erik and Erica Phantom. Some say that Jack had a perfectly fine childhood but are dead wrong. Some aspects are correct but later in his life, that view is terribly corrupted. His mother was a traveling coordinator and his father was a former champion of Hoenn, the two had settled down in Lavaridge. Erica, after a few months, decided to coordinate for the other regions and left her husband for them. They never actually got a divorce, except Erica gave him her ring to pass on to their child. His mother stayed home only to give birth to Jack before leaving him to his father's care. A few weeks later, news returned that she had disappeared and may not return at all. Eric, though wanting to find his wife, knew that his place was with Jack.
He taught his only son all about being a trainer, typing, Pokemon, the legends, and all the other generic things trainers need to know. Jack was a preemie, meaning he was born a month or two earlier then the supposed date. That doesn't mean he was weak. He was perfectly healthy at his birth, October 27th. He went to school a bit later then usual but caught up after a few weeks because he was a fast learner.
Once, when he was in grade school, around 8 years of age, he got caught by bullies for stealing a small bag of candy that was rightfully Emmabelle's, a very shy girl his age that would become his best friend. He ran away before hiding in the girl's bathroom, knowing he would be safe there. He was found by Emmabelle and returned the small bag of candy. When the bullies tried to take the bag again, Jack pushed the largest one aside, allowing Emmabelle to escape. At this point, his daemon was unable to fight so Jack, while running away, could not call her to help. He did mange to get to his father, which sent his Mightyena upon them. The Mightyena only gave them a few scars but nothing really serious. The Police only took the Mightyena out of their possession for a few days until Erik sort is all out and got his Mightyena returned to him. After that, Jack had a normalish life, if you count him getting a Poochyena to help him grasp the concepts of battle and his best friend became Emmabelle. However, nobody, much less him, was aware that their lives were about to change...very drastically.
During his years in middle school, he was the most popular guy in his classes. He changed his personality to go with such change, from shy to outgoing and humorous. He retains his original personality only to Emmabelle, but Emmabelle dislikes it and asks for the 'new Jack', making him blush. After a while, he settled down to his new personality. He got good grades, occasionally failing a test which Erik made him review the material intensely until he had it memorized. It was at this point that his father was most intense on his education.
Fast forward to Jack's 16th birthday, Emmabelle gave him the jacket he wears today. Then, the next year Jack's bithday outing, he took Emmabelle. Elizabeth had the silly idea that the two were out on a date and was a Roserade for the occasion, only to find that she was settled onto Roserade. Jack doesn't mind, of course, he wanted a plant related Pokemon in the first place but Elizabeth does. Then, at his senior graduation, He was right after Emmabelle, who proceeded to commit a public suicide by plunging an ornate Japanese dagger into her stomach. Jack caught her in his arms but she died instantly. Emmabelle was quietly buried at Mt. Pyre by Jack and Erik's Mightyena, who dug the grave. The event made Jack unable to go outside til he was 19, he lived with his father for that time until Jack was persuaded to leave his father and go find his mother. It took a few more months but he finally left, on the quest to find his mother, which marks the beginning of his adult years.
(Note: The Poochyena that was mentioned during his childhood years was donated to another child who could not afford Pokeballs)
With the will to find the truth of his mother, Jack left Lavaridge Town. First, he explored Hoenn first, from Littleroot to Evergrande. He was told his mother was here, but left. Then he went to Kanto aged 22, only to receive the same news, Johto followed suite. He did receive a hint: His mother was retired and in a new place, farther then Hoenn. He decided Sinnoh was his next stop and went over there. He found his mother at The Lakeside Resort, but he was horrified at the truth he learned.
He found out that his mother Erica never loved Erik at all nor was Jack Erik's true son. His real son was stillborn, Jack was born from her but his father was someone else. Jack was not only heartbroken, but enraged. He also learned that the other male was a much better father then Erik, according to Erica that is. Jack, in his rage, critically injured Erica and left, taking some money and a ticket for Enera. (This is where he felt incredibly guilty for all fits of rage but Elizabeth said it was for the best in this case.) He traveled back to Erik, it took a few years, he was 26 when he returned and told him everything, leaving Erik in shock.
Eventually, Erik got over it and kept his last name but marry another. Erik also said that he would always consider Jack his son, even if he wasn't really his son by blood and told him to go to Enera to start a new life. Jack stayed another year which he witnessed Erik marry a nice young woman from Johto and had their first child on October 1st, a girl which Jack had the privilege of naming. Jack named the baby girl Emma Belle Phantom, in honor of Emmabelle. He bought a Skitty Plush for his new sister and left for Enera that afternoon after saying goodbye to his father, his new mother and his sister. He secretly hoped that day that Emma's daemon would be a Skitty as he left.
Jack reached Enera on the eve of his 27th birthday and hopes to become the champion of Enera before he returns home to Emma and watch her grow up, teach her the lessons he learned from Erik and protect her, like a big brother should.
Form (if settled): Roserade
Favourite Forms (if not settled): N/A
Age Settled: 17, at Emmabelle and Jack's first outing. They weren't dating but Elizabeth got the idea that they were.
Views on Form(s): Jack doesn't mind about his daemon's form, although Elizabeth wishes for something different, preferably a Skarmory or Metagross. Too bad she was in the form of a Roserade when her form settled.
Elizabeth has two slashes in her rose-hands due to an accident when she settled on Roserade. As identification, she wears a pair of metal gold bands on her wrists before a larger one is around her neck. Jack is certain that Elizabeth is the only Roserade daemon that has the rings around her neck and waist.
Elizabeth is very anti-social. She refuses to talk to anybody except with Jack, which she confines her deepest secrets too. She only trusts the Pokemon on Jack's team, Jack himself, and nobody else.
