Austin's Story chapter 1
Discovery Base, Headmaster's room
Austin was an only child prior to becoming a Pokéuman, living with his parents in a New York suburb. They, unlike quite a few parents in the world, were not Pokéxtinction copies. His parents changed into Pokéumans with him, and all three initially resided at the Long Island base. David, his father, and Vicki, his mother, live together in room #154. As a battler, Austin is very experienced and was one of the toughest non-PRT Pokéumans in the Long Island base. He has years of experience as a Pokéuman long before Brandon arrived at the base, and is one of the few Pokéumans known to have bested the Lucario in a battle.
Austin is a 5'8.5" tall, bipedal shiny Umbreon. His ability is Synchronize and he currently knows the moves Psychic- which is abnormally strong for an Umbreon-, Dark Pulse, Confuse Ray and Dig.
Austin has a special ability that allows him to manipulate his age. It is not known why he has this abilty or where it came from, simply that he has it and can use it at will.
Austin is generally cheerful, but if you anger him he'll go off like an atom bomb. He's proven himself to be a powerful opponent, often mixing in various wrestling moves to catch his opponents off guard. Despite being quite possibly the only Pokéuman to have defeated Brandon in a battle, Austin is actually rather shy when you first meet him. He'll open up to you once you get to know him though. He is known to be OCD about some things, and possibly ADHD, as he never sits still for long.
Austin and his parents were rescued by Long Island PRT member Reggie the Grovyle in the early morning hours on a Saturday years prior to the main Pokéumans story. They escaped their house through the back door and made use of their backyard to escape untouched by the Pokéxtinction goons.
Change to a PokéumanEdit
Austin, unlike most Pokéumans, was lucky enough to have his parents change with him. His whole famiy was taken to the Long Island base, and while they don't room together, they see each other every day. When changing, Austin took a pill that was the precursor to another pill taken years later by Cameron the Hippopotas. This pill sped up both boys' changes into Pokéumans. The formula for this pill has been lost due to an accident.
