Horizons is officially CLOSED. The board will remain accessible as an archive, but staff has moved on. If you're looking for a new Pokemon RP, try Lucky Strike or any number of others.
Welcome to Veria!
Pokémon Horizons is an expansive RP driven by member-planned plots and regular site events more than any singular site-wide plot, meaning there is always something to do and always room for new ideas.
From classic Pokémon staples to simple slice-of-life to grandiose encounters with Legendary Pokémon, there's a little something for everyone. We've been open since December 2015 and are always eager to welcome new friends~

Wackjob / Nutter / Creep
18 (20) (Jan 25th, Opposite day Aquaris)
Male / Serasexual. Genophobic.
Standing at 5'8, Niso is an average teen in many ways. At least visually. He has a somewhat lanky and skinny build, but is strong from the muscles puberty granted him, if not overly so. As proof he is a student, Niso commonly wears his uniform. In fact it leads many to believe it is the only outfit he owns. His hair is always a disheveled mess that looks as though a comb has only been brushed half through, and takes a deep blue shade that borders on pure black, matching the odd, faded shade of his eyes.
Whatever you want: Niso seems to adjust himself well to whoever he's talking to, within reason of course. For instance, his overly cheerful personality is always present in some sense, but he can range from full on nutjob for fellow loons, or a restrained upper classmen for those with a major in English and a grammar nazi sensibility. Whoever you are, he can make a pretty good attempt at imitating your nature, with a light sprinkle of Niso homebrew mixed in.
Restrained: This is one one word everybody could use to describe Niso. Restrained. This is not to say he dosn't let loose, that every action is held back, in fact, it describes the eerie, uncomfortable sensation that creeps in the unconscious mind of everyone he meets. That in some way, for whatever reason, the person they have met is not "true". That there is something waiting to get out beneath it all... Pure Niso: When alone, or around those he does not care to fool for whatever reason, Niso can...let loose, to say the least. His true nature is not one many would care to see in their lifetimes. He shows a complete lack of empathy towards others, people and pokemon alike, and emphasizes his love of "chaos" as the true "natural order". His own pokemon are not exempt from his lack of empathy, and are treated with the expectancy of obedience rather than a mutual friendship.
Niso's history has little meat to it. At least little that he's willing to share. He was born in the Unova region, Castelia to be specific. His parents were somewhat well off, and his upbringing was aided by that fact. He tended to get what he desired should he behave appropriately, attended a rather high brow private school, and even received good grades over his years studying in Unova. No one in his family, nor in his small group of friends could say there was much wrong with him, besides perhaps he was a bit of an introvert, and wouldn't often make the effort to see friends outside of school.
At the age of 15 he was reported missing. Not by his parents, but by a member of the family, for you see...his family were not in any condition to be calling anyone. Or speaking for that matter...or breathing.
They were dead, is what I'm trying to say.
You see, that day, Niso had received a sort of...epiphany. For the longest time he'd felt an odd uncomfortable sense residing in his own skin. He had gone along with the natural order of things day in and day out. Get up. Eat your breakfast. Get dressed. Walk to school. Attend school. Laugh at your friends pathetic jokes. Re-assure your pathetic friends that their life matters. Secondary lessons. Walk home. Eat dinner. Homework. Bed. He desired something different, something out of the ordinary. Something that transcended the natural order. Something purer, unpredictable, and most of all, entertaining.
He desired chaos.
His epiphany had him dub himself the son of the true natural order. The inherent chaos that truly controlled the universe in it's early creation. The issue was, to truly take on this role, he needed to break his ties to the order he had been a part of all his life. He needed to leave his home, leave his region, leave his parents....or perhaps...they needed to leave him. Leave this mortal coil entirely. The thought almost made him chuckle as it occurred to him. What better way to prove his dedication to this new role than to kill those who had taught him to obey order in the first place?~
After the "event", witnesses could report that they had seen Niso that day, walking towards the docks, an eerie smile upon his face. One they had never seen before, as though burden had been lifted from the boy's shoulders, or perhaps he had just realized something that had taken him far too long to comprehend. Last people saw of him, he had hopped aboard a boat to Veria. Such a shame that no one bothered to check where the boat was going. They may have been able to ask why he was smiling if such where the case.
Of course such witness testimonies had made him a prime suspect in his parents murder, but with no one able to testify as to where is boat left to, it was impossible to track him down to any specific location. Afterall, there are so many regions he could have traveled to.
Now in the Veria region, Niso travels the region, making a home on the Sinclair line. He still attends school though lord knows shy. If you were to ask any of their classmates what they thought of him, they may say his mere presence makes them feel uncomfortable, though none can truly be sure why.

Major: Endurance (2)
Being immortal now, Niso's endurance almost became a moot point. However, through very, VERY severe testing of his new state of regeneration, Niso has reached a point of laughing off most pain that befalls him. He is actually a fair bit more frail, tending to break his bones a little easier than he used to, but with a desensitivity to pain and his regenerative state, Niso is far more likely to chuckle through wounds that would leave any other man crying and halted by the pain alone. Of course, even his stamina still runs out eventually, and even if he can laugh through it, there's only so much pain someone can take before they mentally snap...even more than Niso already has.
Minor: Athletics (1)
Still a utilizer of his "crowd dodging" techniques, through more physical labour on his path to immortality, and subsequent evil acts, Niso has honed his body, becoming actually fairly well toned, but still finding it difficult to compete with anyone more focused in their training. He is fairly healthy, lightly toned, speedy, and has a good sense of some light, beginner's parkour. Sadly, while he is doing well in all of these areas, Niso excels in none.
Awakened Aura (1)
Through training and a teacher who cares not if the world burns, Niso has awakened himself to the skills of an aura user. While his chaotic mess of an aura will never be in his full control within the span of a normal lifetime, he is learning to hone and train his manic mind to use everything available to him.
(Niso will be able to "display" is full aura, but never control it in a physical sense. He will only ever be able to use his original aura in a "physical" sense)
Aura Projection: Minor (1)
His teacher felt this would be the most important to focus the dark child in. With some focus, Niso can project his "basic" aura (His own, and not the thousands stitched to it) creating a dark haze around him, like a black and grey stormy cloud with a manic, dangerous air to it. Niso uses this majorly to induce fear as it has no physical quality, and if he focuses a little more sharply, he can "condense" this effect, creating a black coating over his body that is thicker and more demonic in nature, but at this stage he cannot maintain it for more than half a minute.
Aura Channeling: Minor (1)
Niso has learned how to exude a sensation of unease and nerves through his Aura. While the emotions experienced can vary from person to person, he mainly seems capable of creating a sickly sensation in someone's chest, and a sense of weight against their skin. Niso has not yet learned how to seperate this ability from his projection, and can only exude this influence when displaying his full, or condensed aura. At full, Niso's 'influence' can fill a whole room, though the effect is actually incredibly weak, mainly enhanced by the visual of his aura. Those used to his aura, or just not phased by it, will feel a sense of butterflies at most.
If Niso uses his condensed aura (The black coating over his body) touching someone can induce a stronger, but still surprisingly minimal effect. If he catches someone by surprise however, the effect can be a lot greater for a brief moment, sending an intense chill up the person's spine and quickening their heart.
Niso has absolutely zero capability to heal through his aura. Any attempts either fail, or cause a sensation of pain in the place of the wound. He is still fully immortal, but incapable of healing others.
Thanks to an on-site plot with xerneas, Niso is officially IMMORTAL. While there are some exceptions to this fact, it comes with several factors. For one, he cannot age, at least not realistically within the time the site will exist, and his immortality works on the logic of Homunculi from Full metal alchemist. He can heal from any wound no matter how fatal, but there is a theoretical limit on his "lives". If he were to die rapidly in succession over and over, he could eventually run out of "Lives" and finally die.
This state also affects his aura, making it large and chaotic, tending to fill any room he's in and overpowering any other aura in the vicinity.
Highly functioning sociopath
If he were to be diagnosed, Niso would indeed be, on some level, a sociopath. He has the ability to laugh at others misery, and has little to no regard for social norms when he lets out his true personality. Of course, being a highly functioning sociopath, it is extremely easy for him to blend with normal people should he care to attempt, and his intellect, despite somewhat "crazy" in his displays of it, is certainly far above average, especially for his age.
