HPM Lyn App by Ciress HPM Lyn App by Ciress
...I don't think I've yet drawn him in the same outfit twice... XD;


Basic Information

    Name: Lyndon "Lyn"
    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Pokemon: Clefable
    Height: 6'
    Bodystyle: Athletic
    Birthdate: August 20th
    Home Island: Mystery Isle



Personality

    An eccentric and at times unpredictable character, he can be as much a sweet gentleman as an unscrupulous imp. Possessing a carefree attitude, he has few concerns as to others opinions in relation to his actions, and as such his upbeat and, at times, playfully dramatized demeanor can become quite the sight, as well as a potential annoyance. However, he seems quite aware of the latter fact, and its rare that he's pushing buttons without intention. Oftentimes this is innocent and playful enough, particularly as he takes few insults to heart, but the gesture does acquire notable malicious qualities toward those he's less than fond of- a fact which he doesn't bother hiding.

    For those on the other end, he is oftentimes in good humor, and amusingly nonchalant about playing the fool for a laugh- or an attempt thereof, often doing so without request. He enjoys offering people a good time, and if he cannot offer it to them he at least is always entertaining to himself.




History

    He was raised in a same-sex household, and holds both women in his life with high regard and admiration in their strength for being together and raising him, particularly when they did. At a young age he was exposed to an open-minded lifestyle, with parents more than willing to share their quirks with their child. However, it wasn't until later in life that he would come to realize the importance of this upbringing, and find himself embracing it.

    His early years were simple enough; being such a shy, quiet child, he never had any grief from his peers. He kept to himself, and would spend much of his time helping his parents around the house and learning from them. It was how he began to learn his main interest concerning the making and designing of performance clothing, and was often exposed to Charlotte's “dramatic” reactions to life, something that would always garner his amusement. Although shy outside of the home, he proved himself silly enough to keep up with his parents.

    However, as he grew older, he began to run into problems with himself, growing wary of his shy exterior, particularly in light of peer problems as he aged. He found himself a questionable solution as he became acquainted with a rather unsavory group. They were, for the most part, accepting of his quirks and held themselves in manners he preferred to his own, and the fact that he had grown fond of a certain member certainly assisted his young mind in ignoring certain acts. He was useful in their antics and delinquent acts, creating his own problems with others around him and in school, though he didn't appear to care about this reality. Through a combination of choosing to ignore certain facts, as well as some true ignorance as to the emotional effects of his acts, he at least had the illusion of good friends, and had grown out of his shyness. Yet, through all of this transformation, there finally came a night when he realized how far he had pushed his parents in his acceptance of an illusion, following charged words and the first sight of his parents crying. It was after this that he began a slow process of sorting through his own actions and emotions, and distancing himself from the people he was associated with. It was a significant period of growth, and a time during which he began to truly embrace his more carefree attitude, and became more open with his own interests.

    Entering college shortly thereafter, he tried to investigate a major suiting his interests, but found himself frequently switching between ideas. In time he eventually settled on simply earning some money where he could, at least until knowledge of a few islands offered him an opportunity to pursue his own endeavors.




Occupation

    Job: Business Owner
    Shop Name: Strange Loop
    Stock: Food, Drink, & Entertainment
      While serving a decent menu of food and drink during all hours, live entertainment is also provided in the evening hours. The type of entertainment will depend on how much expansion has been done to the stage, and the performer for the night; while typically Lyn or his assistant, Lyn will try to find other performances when money is available. When the building is large enough, it may be used to provide small plays over certain weekends.




Animals

    Cat Race: Shinx
    Cat's Name: Doll/Dolly
      She's quite content with as a lap cat, though she welcomes a bit of mischief on occasion. Be careful if she starts to enjoy your company too much however; she tends to show her affection with a little extra spark- a habit that has yet to be broken.




Talents

    - Performance

      He often would work with his mother on her plays, and assist her in her performance; they made a game of it, and he acquired quite an interest in it, and a fairly impressive talent as well. If any situation becomes a bit too much for him, he'll begin to use some of his acting characters to try and distract from the situation, or simply for some entertainment.

    - Tailoring

      In addition to Charlotte's lines, he would assist her in stitching together a few costumes and parts. Given that many plays are historical, this would often become a family event as well, as Aileen enjoyed pointing out accurate historical designs.

    - Does melodrama count?

      If you're looking for a dramatic, hopefully entertaining reaction to something, feel free to seek him out.




Fun Facts

    While daylight overloads his system, his body is capable of converting the softer moonlight into energy. The extra energy dose is rarely needed, but it does mean he can keep odd hours, particularly as the moon is waxing.

    He often refers to people very affectionately- darlin', doll, hun; just a few of his favorites.

    He can be a lot louder than he thinks he is. Due to his sensitive hearing, he has adjusted to speak at higher volumes than he personally would like to, to be certain that others can hear him. However, at times his judgment can be off, and while he thinks he should be silent to everyone but himself, he in fact is not.


    He has a large collection of clothing, and is quite fond of it, even if he's the only person who would make use of it year-round. Walking into his closet is more akin to walking into a theater, or perhaps a Halloween store.

    He prefers historically inspired, or even cosplay-esque clothing; he finds the style far more entertaining and interesting.


    In light of his cute charm ability, you won't find him without every bit of skin covered- including gloves, which he seems to have some fun with.

    His mother, Aileen, was a historian, while Charlotte worked as a small time performer, giving him much of the insight and interests he has today.




Courtship

    Status: Single
    Orientation: Pansexual

Pfft I'm so late in finding this app
Ooh, a Clefable! I have to admit, Lyn is ridiculously fashionable. I kind of want to draw him in all sorts of fancy outfits xD
I'd love to rp sometime if that's okay by you! ^^

Late is all good; thank you for this comment- it makes me so happy to hear of interest in my characters~

And yes, he ended up a clefable- all pink and clefable-y.  XD
Hehe.  Why, he would be quite flattered that you think so; he's not always so fashionable, but he does rather prefer such attire.  ^^
I'm happy you find his outfit so fashionable, and I'm happy he could have the effect of making you want to dress him up, lol.
I've actually been meaning to play dress-up in sketching with him sometime.  XD

And of course, I'd love to rp!
I actually remember trying to look at your app earlier (I've been a bit slow at looking through apps X3; ), and your girl sounded quite fun.
If you have any preferred method, just let me know; I'd be happy to discuss startings and such whenever you would like.  ^^

XD I'm glad you think so; I was feeling kinda bad for a while xD;; 

Pink and Clefable-y is perfectly fine! If anything it's an interesting way of approaching a character. And yeah, everyone has ups and downs with fashion. The way I see it, the downs can't be that bad if your default outfit is a shirt and vest~ I just really love fancy suits in general.
Haha, I bet a dress up sketch dump of him would look great!

Ooh, yay! And thanks! I'm still getting my feet wet with this group so it's awesome to know you think Berry's alright. I usually prefer notes since I tend to lose comments, but I'm comfortable with either. I could send you a note sometime soon if you'd like! But of course, there would be no need to reply until you feel like it.

Awww, no; no reason to feel bad- late comments are nice to get too.  ^^


It's really nice to hear you find it interesting.  ^^
Hehe, well, Lyn is willing to dress up in a variety of ways just for some character fun and the like (I don't know if you've seen Serenity, but I really want to dress him up like the captain, lol), so some of those may or may not be within a good realm of fashion.  XD
Aw, your thoughts concerning his attire makes me happy.  I've personally always loved fancy outfits myself, so I figured it would be fun to have a character who would be willing to wear a lot of the outfits I enjoy- Lyn kinda became that character.  XDD  I'm finding that his preference (and probably mine too honestly, pff) is more toward older-looking, formal-ish styles, but I can still get him into some different clothing and have some fun sometimes.  ^^

Thank you!
I very much want to do it sometime, once I get caught up on some art.

Of course; she sounds interesting and everything on her profile is put together well.  ^^
I understand though; I'm still getting used to Lyn in some ways, lol.
And that would be great!  Thank you for offering to start off the note; I look forward to it~

xD Ahhh thank you ^^; 

It's awesome! Most of the time any Pokemon that is mostly pink is associated with a female character, so seeing a male gijinka of a Pokemon like Clefable makes me really happy~
Haha, he seems like the type to do that. I haven't actually watched Serenity, but you're the fourth person to mention that show so I think I'll start watching it sometime this week! But judging from what Google Images is telling me, Lyn is probably pretty good with staying casual enough. 
I'm glad my thoughts on his clothing made you happy~ Older styles always have some kind of appeal, even if it's not functional. Even just one century ago people held appearance in such high regard I've always been a little obsessed with the evolution of fashion over time but that's just me :dummy: I feel like after someone draws a character enough he or she starts to develop a style of their own, and that's always a lot of fun to look forward to.

You're welcome! I'll try to send you a note in the next few days or so. And there's no need to reply instantly, if you ever feel obliged to sometimes ^^; I'm notoriously busy and slow so I understand if you are too.

Of course; as I mentioned, I'm happy you were interested enough to comment.  ^^

Aw, thank you, I'm glad it makes you so happy!
I've actually had a long standing desire to have a pink boy, so I was really happy when my process wound up making him a clefable.  XD

Oh, really?  Hehe, it is a really good movie.  ^^  I've never actually watched the TV episodes that go with it though; something I should probably look into- seems there are a lot of things in need of looking into, lol.
If you do check it out, I hope you'll enjoy it.  ^^

Although, I'm a bit curious as to what you mean when you say Lyn is probably pretty good with staying casual enough?
I'm probably a bit too slow, pff.

That's true; even if it may not be functional, it can darn well be fashionable.  XD
Which tends to be a fun thing~
It sounds like you've looked into some of the history and developments concerning fashion though?  I've always found it pretty interesting myself, but I've not really looked into it; just the tid bits here and there that were relevant for any particular character.  If you're ever interested, I'd love to hear about anything you've discovered and found interesting with the evolution of fashion~

Ah, yeah, there does seem to be a natural tendency that evolves with characters which is pretty fun!

And alright then, sounds great.  ^^
Thank you for mentioning that though; I try to keep up with response times, but there are periods when I get busy.

I'm so happy you like his design so well!  ;3;  'Cause...I really love it myself.
That old time fashion, and sometimes randomness, lol.  ^^
I kinda want to dress him up like the captain from Serenity.  The moment I saw that movie, that was my reaction, pfff.

And yeah; worked to try and change it to something hopefully better.  ^^
