Crimson Family Portrait by XD-385 Crimson Family Portrait by XD-385
Picture by :icongb-of-bs:, one of three art trade pics, two of which he still owes me. This turned out far better than I expected.:wow: Anyway, onto the bios!


The first two bios have been updated.


Siegfried


A Shiny Gallade that spent many of his post-evolution days as a gladiator. Much of his past is a mystery, but he served under a lord who gained much profit from Siegfried by betting on him during his matches. His lord also happened to be a good friend of the Crimson family. Even among his human peers, Siegfried was feared and respected for his fighting prowess. He lived and breathed battle, but seldom killed his opponents. It was his kind heart that won him the respect and friendship of certain other gladiators, which was a very rare oddity at the time as Pokemon were viewed as underlings. His closest friend was fellow gladiator Akien Crimson.

Siegfried fell in love with a Gardevoir named Starlet at first sight,:drool: who was accompanying her master. This sudden distraction nearly cost him the duel as he snapped back to his senses just in time to avoid a potentially fatal hit. Once the match had ended, he encountered her in the halls of the stadium while she fetched some refreshments for her master. As it turned out, Starlet had also been infatuated with Siegfried at first glance. They soon began to have an affair and would meet with each other after every duel.:date:

After a few weeks since falling in love with Starlet, Siegfried decided to seal the deal with her. He approached his master and made an offer. He proposed that he would face off against five elite gladiators at one time, the limit for a one-on-more than one match. In exchange, his master would bet as much as he would be permitted, the more fighters the more he would win. After that, he would purchase Starlet from her master and grant them their freedom. Despite the risk of this not working out, Siegfried's master accepted, knowing that his warrior was a reliable fighter. The match occurred the next day and Siegfried was pushed to his limits. But despite the odds, he narrowly pulled off a victory.:faint: As promised, his master purchased Starlet from her master and the two lovers were united.:hug: His master then used some of his winnings to construct a cottage for the couple in the Viridian Forest. But while it was being constructed, Siegfried and Starlet took their love to the next level and Starlet became pregnant.:happycry: Once they moved into their new cottage, Siegfried and Starlet bid goodbye to their master, who claimed that he would always be grateful for Siegfried's services.:handshake:

Siegfried became a father nine months after Starlet became pregnant. But he also volunteered to adopt the newborn Ashton, whose parents were close friends with his master. With Ashton's parents struck down by disease, possibly the Black Plague, Siegfried took pity on the newborn boy who had been born several minutes before his own daughter. He raised Ashton as if he were his own flesh and blood. He even taught him basic self-defense when he reached the age of four.

Siegfried is a gentle family man with a big heart. He dislikes killing, but will show absolutely no mercy to those who would harm his family.:rage: A veteran warrior, he wields his natural elbow blades in battle. He also is able to use psychokinetic powers, being a Psychic type Pokemon, but they are not on the same level as Starlet's. Due to this, he sometimes jokes, "I'm the brawn of the couple while my wife is the brains.", referring to his great physical abilities and Starlet's powerful mind.

Siegfried lived quite long into his seventies. While on his deathbed, he told his son the truth about his real father, Akien Crimson. Siegfried explained that Ashton had succeeded where his father had failed in bringing true equality to humans and Pokemon. After death, Siegfried was buried alongside the grave of his dearest friend, Akien Crimson, in a cemetery reserved for gladiators of great stature.


Starlet


A Gardevoir who served a noble as a maid. Like Siegfried, her past is largely a mystery. She was with her lord as they watched the duel between Siegfried and another gladiator. As with Siegfried, it was love at first sight. :love: But it was only after she was purchased by Siegfried's master that their relationship began to heat up. After becoming pregnant with Siegfried's child, they moved into a cottage that their master had constructed for them.

Starlet gave birth to a daughter nine months after conception, the same gestation period as humans, but also found herself caring for Ashton, who had been brought home by Siegfried when he visited his master. At first worried about the possibilities of a Pokemon raising a human, Starlet was won over by how Ashton reached out to her when she held him in her arms. He had obviously chosen her as his mother. Somehow, her body also reacted to this and began to produce enough milk for two children. Starlet cherishes her children, but has a strange attraction to Ashton. As she revealed to her daughter years later, if she had never met Siegfried, she would have claimed Ashton as a husband and would have never left his side.:smooch: But this is also proof that her love for Siegfried cannot be destroyed.

Starlet is a typical housewife, handling the cooking and cleaning of her home while her husband deals with chores that require manual labor, such as chopping firewood and heading into town to pick up supplies. Although not much of a fighter, Starlet's powerful brain is just as deadly as those of other Gardevoir. Her psychic abilities are enough to protect her and her family from almost any threat. Of course, this trait also helps out with chores around the house. Starlet is a caring and graceful woman who is extremely beautiful by all standards. :flirty: And no matter how old they become, Starlet always treats her children with tender loving care, as they will always be her babies.:cuddle: She also "suffers" from an uncommon condition that causes her breasts to fill with milk on occasion. Even long after her children outgrew breastfeeding, Starlet still must squeeze the excess milk out. Even so, this is not always a burden, as Ashton would suckle from Starlet's breasts even after turning six years of age. (Ashton claims he does not remember this at all.) She even breastfeeds him once at the age of 15, revealing both her motherly bond with him, as well as her more intimate feelings toward her adopted son.:horny: Her most precious treasure after her children is a necklace with a peridot that Ashton found and gave to her. She is especially doting to Ashton as it was her who pleaded for aid when she was not able to save him from illness.:cries:

Starlet's secret love for Ashton was not overlooked by Siegfried, who agreed to allow her to have Ashton's child since they had no real relation. Taking the opportunity, Starlet confessed her desire and love to her son that night. Ashton, while somewhat shocked, decided to honor his "mother's" wish and sired her offspring. Nine months later, Starlet gave birth to her second child, a healthy little girl named Monica. Due to Serenade being Starlet's daughter as well, Monica saw Serenade as her big sister.

Starlet moved in with Ashton at the Crimson estate shortly after Siegfried died due to being unable to bear the solitude of living alone in a forest. Being in the company of her beloved son, Starlet lived out the rest of her days in happiness. She died in her sleep five years later from natural causes. Starlet was later laid to rest on the Crimson estate grounds.



Serenade


The only daughter of Siegfried and Starlet. Contrary to the picture above, Serenade was born without the two red horns that most Ralts have. This caused her to not be able to sense the emotions and intentions of those around her, leading to the brutal assault on her parents that awakened her brother's inner fury and potential. She was born just minutes after Ashton was and they bonded extremely quickly just after her father brought him home. Even as infants, they perfectly understood each other like twins and were seldom seen apart.:hug: She would even cry out in sorrow whenever Ashton was wracked with pain after he became gravely ill.

Serenade would visit Ashton occasionally while he was a squire at the academy where he trained to become a knight, but only after evolving into a Kirlia. By the time Ashton became old enough to claim his family's inheritence, Serenade had evolved into a Gardevoir. She also chose to leave home to live with him in his family's manor. For a time, she served as the cook before Zandria came along. She always views Ashton as her brother, but still refers to him as "Lord Ashton" at times. When frustrated or angry with him, Serenade will boldly call out Ashton's full name to get his attention, much to his dismay.:X Although she at first did not feel so, Serenade fell in love with Ashton after her mother requested that she marry him someday. It was because of a dance where Ashton willingly kissed her that she began to pine for him.:love: And since they are not truly related, there is little risk.

Serenade is calm and caring, much like her mother. She also has advanced medical skills, possibly taught by her mother. Due to this, she is the nurse of the Crimson estate. She is every bit as beautiful as her mother and some of her "sisters" envy her for her beauty. But although she has a powerful brain, Serenade has severely underdeveloped psychic powers due to the lack of the two red horns on her back and chest. She can only apply psychic force on objects within a few feet of her. Therefore, she is not suited to typical Gardevoir-style combat. This suits her fine, as she does not enjoy causing harm to others.:innocent:



Ashton Redford Crimson


The only son of a family of viscounts, Ashton is the sole surviving member of the Crimson family. He lost his parents at birth to a deadly disease and was adopted by Serenade's parents, but not before his mother named him on her deathbed. But unknown to them, the same disease that had claimed Ashton's parents had infected him while in the womb, but no one could tell because it was in the earliest stages of infection. The disease reached full-blown deadly just a few weeks after Ashton was born. When Ashton was on the verge of death, Starlet took him to the Dead Forest in the dead of night and found Ho-oh there. The phoenix then healed him by infusing her own power, the Eternal Flame, into his body and soul. Although it seemed that Ashton had only been saved, a truly terrifying power had been bestowed upon him in the process. But this power did not manifest itself in him until he witnessed the brutal attack on his family at the mere age of five years. A pair of Z-shaped scars were burned into his face under his eyes as a reminder of his might.

Largely due to his father's place as a role model for him, Ashton enrolled at an academy in Verdant to become a fine warrior like his father. Ashton became fast friends with Lance, the captain of the Dragon Masters unit. He aspired to become a Dragon Master himself and found a trusted mount in the form of a Salamence named Serra, who was very aggressive to all other humans. She fell in love with him and Ashton even proposed to her one night, even though it is likely that he did not fully grasp the concept of marriage at the time. But this dream was crushed when a gang of thugs stormed the academy and brutally smashed Serra's wings. But Ashton pressed on and was knighted by Lance himself at the age of 13. Not long afterward, Ashton annulled his direct allegiance with the Kingdom of Rohta and became an independent knight, fighting for those who he felt needed him. Even so, he harbors a strong sense of loyalty to the kingdom and often takes part in protecting the people of the kingdom whenever danger strikes.

Ashton is bitterly disgusted with the fact that the majority of Rohta's human population view Pokemon as mindless animals, frequently referring to them as "Beasts" and treating them extremely poorly. But anyone who refers to Ashton's family of eight female Pokemon as "Beasts" will be mercilessly killed. But should someone call them "Tools", Ashton will proceed to mutilate and torture the offender before killing it, as calling Pokemon "Tools" is far worse as it refers to them as mere objects while "Beasts" is still acknowledging them as living creatures. Ashton is working tirelessly to find solid proof that Pokemon are people like humans, as they have souls too.

Ashton has a friendly rivalry with a knight named Garyson Oak, who is also the ancestor of Gary Oak. Like their descendants, they are both friends and rivals, although Garyson never belittles Ashton like Gary does to Ash. They hold a private duel once a month. Having won 30 matches straight, Garyson was given a rude awakening when Ashton effortlessly bested him with a zweihander. It is now his weapon of choice.

Ashton uses a rare combination of western style swordplay with eastern style ninja arts. With the use of these ninja skills, he is able to increase his strength up to that of five men of his stature, enabling him to swing something as large and heavy as a zweihander around as easily as a dagger. He even has ninja-like agility, allowing him to outperform many opponents. He is also able to use a variety of elemental ninjutsu, but only uses them when he absolutely has to, claiming that they are not what a knight should use. That, and he finds it unfair to use against most opponents.

Ashton's most devastating power is that of the Eternal Flame. When enraged or on the verge of imminent loss, the Eternal Flame becomes fully active. Although Ashton has some knowledge of his pyrokinetic abilities, he has no comprehension of the full depth of his strength. Ashton is able to control any source of fire at will and can increase his body heat to cause harm to anyone that makes direct contact. But when his full potential is unleashed, Ashton becomes the very manifestation of fire's destructive will. He becomes brutal and has access to all of Ho-oh's abilities, including flight. He is also capable of using a truly horrifying attack that he calls the "Crimson Blossom", where he snatches up his enemy in a rope of fire that does not burn them. Then in the blink of an eye, the flames enter the victim through the nose, mouth, or any other opening, and then expand outwards, causing the victim to explode while igniting the blood, forming a spectacular flower of flames.:wow:

Ashton hates his full name of Redford Crimson because it sounds too upper-class. He now refers to himself as Ashton Ketchum. He chose Ketchum because it sounds more casual and not as snooty. Having said this, he hates it whenever someone calls him by his original full name.

Ashton has had to face off against some of the most skilled warriors in the kingdom, such as the notorious Night Hawk in a tournament. He has even had to endure the pain of having to fight his former teacher and friend, Lance, upon discovering that he intended to unleash genocide on the human population.:tears: These victories have earned Ashton fame across the kingdom. He is actually a very thoughtful and kind young man at 15 years of age, but is totally clueless about matters concerning the heart as he has failed to notice the intimate feelings his eight servants have for him.:clueless: Even so, he is very protective of them and will give his life to defend them from any threat.

Ashton has shown to be quite skilled as a painter, having painted the portraits of nearly all his servants. But his real talent lies in his duty as a knight. However, he puts Pokemon before humans due to the suffering they have to put up with everyday. Although viewed by many as a lunatic for his total acceptance of Pokemon as people, Ashton is respected as a virtuous knight who defends those who are in dire need of aid.
