    Drakes Legacy: Finding the Mirage


    The sea, it's a vast, huge place. It makes you feel like just another small fish. Drake often had thoughts like these, and he had them as he stared out into the great blue now from his modest seaside home on Floridge island. Drake wasn't a good person. He knew it and wasn't proud of it. Being a pirate wasn't all it was cracked up to be. For every treasure chest, Drake had stabbed somebody in the back, often times literally. For twenty years he had been the most feared buccaneer in Hoenn, only having to deal with those pests at Team Aqua. Despite that fool Archis's affairs, Drake had still managed to steal whatever he could get his hands on, and let his Salamence burn the evidence. He also spent a great deal of time avoiding the Hoenn authorities. The Hoenn government made a big deal about image, and have tried hard for many years to reduce the large Hoenn pirate population. After 20 years, Drake had a ship, a crew, and all the booty he could ask for.

    Just when he was at his best, a terrible even occurred. After having done a hard days work on the sea. Drake returned to the hall of his ship only to hear shouting and screaming soon after from the crew outside. He exited his cabin to see a horrifying sight. Giant orange tenticles were destroying the ship, slamming into the hull. Drake summoned his Salamence, and took off with no belongings. He saw many crew members taking off on winged pokemon as well. But any member who hadn't raised a strong enough flyer met their doom. Having lost all of his earnings, his ship, and a chunk of his crew. (the rest of which were too terrified to ever sail again.) Drake returned to the only place he could think of. Floridge Island. When he wasn't pirating. Drake enjoyed visiting his nephew Juan and his sister Rose. Little Juan always loved the gifts Drake would bring him whenever he visited, if only he knew how Drake had gotten them. Juan was 16 and a talented fisherman and Water pokemon Trainer by now. Him and Rose happily took Drake in, and helped him get back on his feat. Two years later, he still spends most of his nights drinking. But he was able to make a new ship, not one near as big as his old one, but it was enough for his new job, a fishing business he had created with his nephew Juan. Occasionally Drake considered re-living the glory days, but it never happened. He was almost 40, his body hurt, and he had to worry about Juan. Juan was a good kid, and Drake wanted it to stay that way. So Drake stared out into the ocean, watching the waves reflect the sunset.

    There were Pirates, and then there was Team Aqua. Team Aqua is a nasty group of guys. Only interested in their own personal gain, they are willing to take down anybody they have to to get what they want. Their leader, Archie, was young, ruthless, and at the top of his game. Without Drake on the water Archie and his team had anything they wanted for the taking. Terrorizing fishing ships across Hoenn. But Archie wants more, he wants something big. He wants to be Invincible.

    Finally there is the government of Hoenn. For years they have been trying to put a stop to the growing pirate population. For years they had no success. But the president of the Hoenn defense called for a new order of justice to be created. The most talented trainers and rangers were brought together to form the Seel Team 6. A group who travel the the sea of Hoenn, putting a stop to any Pirates trying to act tough. The group was good, and they knew it. But soon, they would face something they never anticipated.

    Drake spent nearly every night at the bar. Floridge was a popular place for sailors to visit and share their stories. Drake knew most of them had never done anything they told, and that most of their words were just that, words. There was a popular story about an island that many had said would appear and dissappear from one second to the next. It began to grow and was eventually referred to as "Mirage Island." Drake knew most of this was false, but he often listened to what they had to say anyway, just to see if the tails were alike. They all seemed to go like this.

    There was once an island created by the gods of land sea and sky. The island was said to be a place of wonders. Holding delicious berries and piles of gold. But at the center of the island was the real prize. The three fountain gifts, one for each legendary beast. The first was the fountain of Ruby, which was said to give strength, speed, and ability unmatched by any human who drank from it. The second was the Fountain of Sapphire, which guarenteed protection and a calm sea to whoever tasted its Blue water. Drake often payed more attention at this point in the story, as he had always wanted a way to be sure Juan could always be safe. Finally there was the fountain of Emerald, which guarenteed that whoever drank from it would never age, and would go without sickness for eternity, only capable of dying should someone else be the taker of their life. It was believed that each of these fountains could only serve one, and after it has been tasted, the fountain would dissappear, much like the island does itself.

    Drake thought for a long while none of this was true, until only recently, when a man added something to the common tail. He apparently had been studying this phenomenon for quite a while, and concluded that the fountains were not only protected by the islands illusions, but by a great, many armed beast. Drake looked up in shock. Could he be talking about the beast that terrorized him long ago? Surely not, this was all sailor talk coming from their rear ends. He felt like he would never again be able to get revenge on the monster that nearly ruined him. Or so he thought. The next day, Juan had decided to go out fishing by himself. It took him longer than expected for him to return. Finally, Drake heard his nephew calling out from the shore, he was sweating and panting. He began to explain that he had seen a huge island in a place that was almost always open water, then it dissappeared. Drake was about to question him when Juan pulled from his bag a large camera. Juan loved to take pictures of pokemon from the sea as a hobby. They immediately rushed to develop the film, and after the pictures were completed Drake couldn't believe what he saw. It was a castle like structure that seemed to fade as it moved left across the picture, and right in front of the picture. A large orange tenticle.

    "Juan, get the boat ready, I'm going to go find us a crew."

    "What? Why?"

    "We are going on a little adventure."

    There are more people who want the treasure as well however. The rumors of this Island have wide spread through Hoenn. Aqua was already preparing the search the minute Archie knew 0f the powers of the fountain of Ruby. The government was swamped. This new rumor had nearly doubled the pirate population, and the word that Drake was out and about again created more stir. But they trusted the new Seel Team 6, and were sure that if anyone could put a stop to this, it was them. And so the hunt or treasure begins just like any other pirate story. The question is, how will you effect this one?


    All serebiiforums and RPG rules apply.

    This RP is going to be PG-15 So keep it at that level at all times.

    Do not bunny unless you have gotten the approval of the person you are bunnying. Bunnying is taking control of another characters actions.

    Don't be a jerk, no flaming, or saying something someone does is bad or anything like that.

    Don't spam, and if you have to go out of character use OOC: Although this should only be used when necessary.

    Only have 1 character please.

    Posts should be fairly long, details are important!

    Make sure anything you introduce into the story is appropriate, a Pirate is not going to use a flail.

    Yes, if you join Drake, Pirate speak will be mandatory, if you join the other 2 groups, its optional.

    The story will begin with Drake trying to find his crew, so do your history up to that point.

    If I need to change something in the plot that directly affects you, I'll let you know ahead of time.

    Have fun!

    Do they have to absolutely positively be a water type? Cause I already know a water Pokemon, but thinking of a second one.
  9. Sheps™

    Sheps™ Tick,Tick,Tick....

    No, they don't have to be, but at least think in a logical sense, its unlikely you would bring a steel or fire type on a ship.

    Name: Brent McKenna
    Gender: Male
    Age: 20
    Group: Seel Team 6

    Appearance: Brent is fairly tall, standing at about 6'2", and his skin is light with a slight tan. His body is built, but not noticeable under the long black, buttoned, trench coat he wears. It reaches below the waist and above his knees, and the coat is belted at the waist. Brent holds his two Poké Balls at each of his sides at the belt. The neck is left visible and you can see he wears a white dress shirt with a black tie underneath. He wears black pants that go into his plain black combat boots. On his head he wears a brown, brimmed, paperboy cap. His hair is short on the back, and on the front you can only see the hair that comes out of the cap. What comes out are his bangs, which only frames the sides of his face and sweeps across his forehead. From what you can see, his hair is a light black, and it leaves his eyes exposed, which are a deep blue.

    Personality: Brent is usually calm and composed. He likes to be formal around his superiors and strangers, and then relaxed and casual with his friends. He always puts his Pokémon and comrades first when out working for the Seel Team. He is very defensive and always ready for a battle, especially with pirates, which he holds a great dislike for. When in a battle, or any given situation, he always thinks rationally. However, during a battle, or when a comrade/Pokémon is hurt, Brent can also get carried away. He likes to analyze situations to think about what to do next. He then goes even further and thinks about how things will turn out and any consequences they may hold. In any interaction with people he likes to read their actions. He makes mental profiles based on what they do and is always observant. Although he may seem insecure and distant, he is really kind and goofy. People just have to put effort to get to know him, and he does the same if he feels you are special.

    History: Brent was born in the Unova region. He lived in Nuvema Town, next to the laboratory due to his father being an assistant professor. When he reached the age of ten he was ready for his Pokémon License. His father, working in the laboratory, was able to get his son an Oshawott egg, which he will use to begin his journey. He went on for five years and eventually defeated the gyms of Unova. He did it all with his Oshawott, which was now kept as a Dewott, as well as other Pokémon. He also took on the Elite Four and defeated the four elites, but wasn't able to challenge the absent Champion. Having completed most of his journey, he headed back home. When he arrived he found out that his father was transferring to Hoenn to work in the laboratory in Littleroot Town. Brent took this opportunity to begin a new journey. He hadn't heard much about Hoenn, but was excited nonetheless.

    Brent chose two Pokémon to take on his journey, his Dewott and a Zorua. Arriving in Hoenn, he began his new adventure as soon as he could. At the age of fifteen he set on a more dangerous journey, but this was unknown to him. It wasn't until he got to Dewford that he realized what kind of region he was in. There were pirates everywhere, he couldn't believe how different it was than Unova. Then, the worst happened. A group of rough looking pirates approached Brent and commented on his, "nice looking Pokémans". This was when they just ambushed him with all their Pokémon. He tried fending them off, but with only a Dewott and Zorua he couldn't do it. They made away with his Zorua, and he never encountered them again. Devastated by the loss of his Zorua he spawned a hatred for pirates. It took him three years to get over the incident and was able to befriend a hurt Ralts on one of his travels. After helping it get back on its feet he made it a permanent addition to his team. He took the next two years building his reputation. He defeated the gyms in Hoenn and took the Elite Four challenge. He was able to battle and defeat the Champion this time and got into the Hall of Fame. The Hoenn government heard of Brent and his achievements and wanted him in the Seel Team 6. After hearing the goals of the group he accepted the offer. He is now a member of the Seel Team and goes around with his Dewott "the Samurai" and his Gallade "the Gallant". He also earned his own nickname, usually known as "The Shadow" for his apparel and ability to spy.


    Dewott "the Samurai"
    Moves - Razor Shell, Aqua Jet, Water Pulse, Copycat (Egg Move)

    Gallade "the Gallant"
    Moves - Leaf Blade, Psycho Cut, Close Combat, Psychic

    Additional Info: Dewott is out of his ball all the time

    Just let me know about any changes needed or any problems.

    I have a few questions about Team Aqua.

    Do they have the same structure as in the games? That means Archie is the leader, Matt, Shelly and Amber the three Admins and only grunts below them. If so, are there more levels of grunts? Also, how high in organisation can our characters be?
  12. Sheps™

    Sheps™ Tick,Tick,Tick....

    Laughs, good SU you are Accepted. I'll update the OP later. Also, synth. Archie will be the only charecter from the games in aqua since the RP takes place twenty years before the events of Emerald and Drake becoming a member of the elite four, so Archie is only about 20 and The admins would be kids. There will be a few higher in command members, but I ask that you don't be one of them as it would be unfair to anyone else who signs up for aqua

    Name: Steve Ansell
    Gender: Male
    Age: 19
    Group: Team Aqua

    Appearance: Steve is a tall and slender fellow. His blond wavy hair is quite long for a guy. It reaches just below his ears and is long enough to fall over his eyes when wet and stretched out because of the extra weight. His eyes are bright blue and often seem to stare blankly into the distance. His face is round with no striking features. He wears a red and white striped T-shirt, bright blue shorts and light canvas shoes. He wears a thick leather bracelet on each hand with his Poke balls attached to them.

    Personality: Steve is a laid-back and optimistic person. He is still looking for a purpose in life so he likes to try out new things. Mostly, he acts on a whim and rarely plans ahead. He isn’t overly cautious, but doesn’t like taking risks. He also tends to avoid battles and prefers to talk his way out of trouble or run. He is a fairly loyal person, but isn’t afraid to end a friendship when he feels they have grown too much apart. Steve isn’t very vocal, but is extremely honest when it comes to expressing his opinion.

    History: Steve was born in Olivine City. From an early age, he liked to sit on a pier and watch the sea and the ships sailing on the horizon. Because he was there so often, local sailors grew fond of him. When Steve was seven he received a Pokemon egg from one of them. After extensive care for the egg, a Poliwag hatched from it. Even though he now had a Pokemon, Steve didn’t use it for battles; Spira became his pet and play partner. At 14, he learned to sail a small sailing boat. Soon enough, Steve used his skill to get a job transporting goods between various coastal cities and towns across Johto. At that time his father gave him an Octillery for protection against wild Pokemon he might encounter at sea.

    Steve came to Hoenn purely by accident. When he was sailing from Goldenrod City to Cianwood City Steve was caught in a storm. His boat was badly damaged and he was drifting along the waves and currents for days, before he was found. His rescuers were a group of Team Aqua members. Grateful for their help, Steve decided to join them. He was after all alone in an unknown land far from home with no means of returning home and he had nowhere to go and nothing to do in Hoenn. As a new member, Steve wasn’t trusted with much information about Team Aqua’s true motives and activities. Because he wasn’t a good battler either, he never went out on missions and mostly stayed in the headquarters. That didn’t bother him at first, but as time passed he realised how important Pokemon battles were in his new way of life, so eventually started having practice battles with other grunts. Just recently, he was deemed good enough to join them in action so Steve is now anxiously awaiting his first mission.

    Spira the Poliwag
    Moves: Hypnosis, Water Gun, DoubleSlap, Mist

    Strike the Octillery
    Moves: Octazooka, Aurora Beam, Psybeam, Signal Beam

    Synth, is Steve not aware that Aqua is a team of criminals? Because he seems like a pretty nice guy to be okay with team aqua. That could be a xool thing for the plot though. OP Updated

    Name: Rosemary "Rose" Hanson

    Age: 20

    Gender: Female

    Group: Seel Team 6

    : Rose has long scarlet hair and pale white skin. Her hair reaches to the center of her spine. Her eyes are this dark hazel color and her eyes are usually intense and focused. She stands at 5'8 in height and has black painted nails. She wears a long white sleeved shirt with a black formal vest over it. For her bottoms she wears a pair of black slacks and black belt to match. She wears black flats on her feet and a silver bracelet on her left wrist. She has a black choker on her neck with a star in the center front of it.

    Personality: Rose is cold and detached which you will feel right off the bat at meeting her. She always tries to be focused on her duties and accomplishing what she needs to. She hates to be thought of as weak or useless, so she will never show any vunerability emotionally or physically. She is a stubborn person and hates to admit to error or being wrong. So she tries her best to do everything to the best she can. She doesn't care what others think of her and she isn't the type of person to talk behind others' back. She will directly confront someone if she has a problem with them. She doesn't trust people easily so she keeps to herself as much as possible and doesn't talk much. But not because she is timid, she isn't afraid to voice her opinion.

    History: Rose was born and raised in Sinnoh. Her parents were Greg and Emma Hanson. When she was born her mother left her and her father. She ran off with someother man because she didn't want to be a mother. One morning Rose was sitting in the kitchen table as a normal child: happy and excited. But she saw her mother walk to the back door that led out of the kitchen with a suitcase. Rose asked her mother where she was going. Her mother replied anywhere but here. Just like that, Rose was without a mother.

    Rose's father was a chief in the National Police Force and was proud of it. He put off becoming a chief until Rose left on her Pokemon journey with her starter Pokemon. Rose had chosen a Piplup she nicknamed Neptune. Even though Rose was deeply hurt by her mother leaving she was still ambitious and energetic. She dreamed of being the world's top Pokemon co-ordinator. But that dream died when she lost her father. He was on a mission in Team Galactic's base and the leader of Team Galacitc, Cyrus, had shot him. Rose received this news after she had lost her first attempt at a Pokemon Contest.

    She sat outside of the arena for hours in the rain, spiraling deeper and deeper into depression. The only thing that kept her from dying that day was that she had her Piplup. She hugged tighter than ever before and just shoved all those emotions deep down into her soul. From then on she vowed to do her part to put a stop to criminals and her Piplup supported her one hundred percent. So she and her partner trained and became a force to be reckoned with.She joined the National Police Force and became a star in bringing criminal's to justic. She became famous among the force and became high-ranking officer, following in her father's footsteps. She was given a Pokemon egg as a reward for such great success. It hatched into an Eevee which she eventually evolved into an Umbreon she later nicknamed Pluto. Together with her two Pokemon they became one of the best agents on the police force, but she lef them when she was recruited by Seel Team 6. So now she is in the Hoenn region ready to begin her newest mission.

    Name: Neptune
    Species: Empoleon
    Attacks: Hydro Pump, Ice Beam. Aqua Jet and Drill Peck.

    Name: Pluto
    Species: Umbreon
    Attacks: Quick Attack, Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray and Screech.

    Other: None
