Tuesday's Pack

Name: Iris Sagira Smythe

Alias: Sagira (pronounced "Suh-GEAR-uh"); ShadowCat; Catseye

Age: 17

Hometown: Viridian City

Appearance: Of average height, but on the thin side, Iris (or Sagira, as she most often goes by) has long raven-black hair that hangs down almost to her hips, with long bangs that usually shadow her face. Her complexion is rather pale, accentuated by the fact that she wears nothing but black. Her eyes are normally a deep, shadowed blue, but instead of wearing glasses for her farsightedness, she has golden contacts that make her appear to have the eyes of a cat. This becomes a prominent theme, as she always ties her hair back with a thick sash with black cat-ears on top, to make herself appear to be part feline.

Dressed in a tight-fitting full-body suit, she wears a pair of tight leather gloves that leave her fingers with as much maneuverability as if she were wearing none. The fingers of the gloves have each been replaced with a piece of metal that curves like a claw, and she is not afraid to use them as such. Her boots have a small heel that make her appear slightly taller than she is, and she has filed her canine teeth to a point.

Recently, Sagira has taken to wearing clothing other than the color black. She has also opted for clear contacts, rather than the cat-iris contacts she usually wore. This is most likely due to her boyfriend, Jay Lange, who has commented that he thinks her eyes are quite beautiful. Sagira's hair was cut short and dyed white in order for she and Jay to go undercover. Although it is still short (though growing back quickly), it has resumed its dark color. Sagira still wears a great deal of black, but has occasionally been seen in other outfits, usually in the company of Jay.

Personality: Iris can seem very cold-hearted and dark, as she does not like or trust people well. She finds able companionship with her pokemon, and will turn to them for aid before she turns to a fellow human. She generally keeps quiet and observes, but can be extremely wordy and sarcastic when she sees fit, and there's little anyone can do to keep her quiet when she wants to be heard.

She has a fiery temper and has learned to live on her wits and her stealth, so she's extremely adept at sneaking around and finding a way out of a situation. She is particularly fond of cats, having fond memories of her father's Persian, Socrates, who disappeared along with him, and she emulates felines in both her dress and her movements, sometimes unconsciously. She has her morals, but they usually concern only her and those she comes to trust and therefore stand loyal to. She is not above stealing if it is required, and she knows how to cause harm if it is necessary.

Biography: Born and raised in Viridian City (Kanto), Iris grew up watching trainers pass through, sometimes sneaking in to watch them battle Giovanni, the leader of the Viridian Gym. She also attended school at the local Pokemon Academy, and her thirst for knowledge and desire to be better than the trainers she saw passing through town made her one of the school's best students.

Iris lived primarily with her mother, as her father worked as a pokemon scientist for Team Aqua, in Noverus. He came home whenever he could to visit, but was unable to speak of his job to either his wife of his daughter. Iris came to anticipate his visits with glee, not only to see him, but also the pokemon he brought home to show her. Her knowledge of pokemon grew with every visit, as did her desire to learn more.

Iris was ten-years-old when her father vanished abruptly, along with his life-long companion, Socrates - his first pokemon, having been given to him as a newly-hatched Meowth. Many people claimed that Taikyrus left of his own accord, choosing to leave his family behind, but Iris and her mother, Alejandra, would have none of the lies, and knew that he would never leave them. Attempts to discover the cause of his disappearance were few and far in between, but from what little knowledge she had of his work, Iris never had a doubt that Team Magma was the culprit.

Having raised a female Ekans from an egg since she was seven, Iris valued the serpent's companionship even more after her father disappeared. When a strange pokemon that Iris had never seen before and her father had never admitted to having caught arrived at her home along with the rest of his pokeballs (excluding Socrates'), Iris was awestruck that the puppy pokemon so easily took to following her around. However, she quickly got used to it, and the Houndour, she discovered, much thanks to the pokemon researcher in Pallet, was unofficially adopted into her party, and gained the name Umbrae, when she discovered that it was a Dark-type pokemon.

Umbrae and Serenity got along amicably, much to Iris' happiness. Unfortunately, having a Dark-type pokemon was just one more thing that town bullies had to torment Iris about, and she gained no small amount of grief from the other pokemon trainers native to Viridian, and those that came through. The animosity that these trainers felt toward Sagira and her pokemon led to a frequent occurrence of battling, in which Sagira became one of the best in Viridian. The only friend she had her own age was a fellow pokemon trainer named Mattie, whose Growlithe, Danika, got along quite well with Umbrae.

Though Iris lived in relative comfort with her mother and their pokemon, she never got over the disappearance of her father. Although her mother never said anything, Iris was under the impression (an impression she got quite frequently) that the woman knew far more than she admitted, but that she wasn't going to reveal anything.

Eventually, Iris left Viridian City to start her own pokemon journey, making her way to Noverus, where she joined Team Aqua, in an attempt to overthrow the tyranny of Team Magma, and discover the fate (and hopefully, the location) of her missing father.

Although she hasn't much chance, in her own mind, of ever succeeding, Iris secretly hopes that once Team Magma is overthrown, she will be able to return to Kanto and fulfill the dream she had as a child to be a Pokemon Ranger.

It was during her first and second missions for Team Aqua that Sagira met her two companions. Ivy Kylarian was Sagira's first friend since Mattie and became something of a little sister to Sagira. During her second mission, Sagira met Jacob Lange, who started out as something of a rival, and grew into something more; the two are now a couple, and occasionally flaunt this in front of their superior, Nathaniel Bryce.

Sagira inherited psychic abilities from her father, which showed themselves during a mission. Over time, they have begun to grow, aided by Sagira's kirlia, Paladin, and Jay's kirlia, Hinata. Sagira's psychic powers are occasionally unpredictable in times of stress, and she draws the same calm from Jay that he is known for to psychics. Sagira has linked to some of her pokemon through her psychic powers, though she is unaware of how that was possible, though it always causes some detrimental effects while active. Her powers are primarily telepathic and she has not been known to do anything of great magnitude psychokinetically.
