• Name: Jarrod Samms
• Pokemon: Croconaw
• House: Jirachi
• 7th Class Choice: Photography/Film
• Height: 5"9
• Weight: 140lbs
• Personality: Jarrod is a pretty modest fellow, Who has a big heart and an open mind for those who treat him well ( despite his harsh home life. ). He loves to meet new faces, and try new things. Being an aspiring photographer/cinematographist, he loves the outdoors and being in strange enviroments/situations. He's quite humorous as well, and wont miss out on the chance to crack a joke or two. He also has a really bad chewing habit, chewing on anything from his clothes, writing utensils, straws, even his own bag which is why it only has one strap. Its a problem that he's hoping to fix. Jarrod absolutely loathes vigorous physical activity, especially when it comes to battling ( though, he really enjoys swimming!). He will avoid conflict at all costs, even if it means getting beat on, despite the fact that he is a skilled fighter. If pushed far enough, he has a tendency to snap and lash out, but afterwards immediately regrets and goes far and beyond to try and fix what he caused.
• Bio: Jarrod grew up down south, coming from a reclused town just off of the shoulder of one of the biggest southern water-based cities. His ever so strict father, as well as the rest of his family, were hard working, athletic, strong folk. Ever since jarrod was small, he was often forgotten about and bullied by his father and 2 brothers for being artsy rather than an athlete, and more on the thinner side rather than muscular. He never really got a chance to comfortably pursue his hobbies without a lecture and an order to go run impossible errands that were a no-breezer for his brothers. His father would often tell him that he was absurd, and that people who didnt work hard, never got anywhere or were able to support themselves. His Aunt and uncle were the ones who afforded his attendance to PA, and he is forever grateful for the opportunity.
• Why is your character going to/want to go to Pokemon Academy?: Wants to attend to hopefully seriously begin his passion that he's had since he was small, and turn it into an aspiring career. To show his father that he can be just as successful being an artist, rather than a working man.
