Brandon Guaman was born in Queens, New York on August 19th 2000. His early years were uneventful; but he excelled in school and received many awards for his writing. He was also very social, but only 2 friends, Eugene and Dave, became close confidants.
It wasn't really hard to tell Eugene and Dave apart as Eugene was socially awkward and picked on by his classmates, while Dave was wealthy but placed in public school as a punishment by his parents due to his years of bullying. Their friendship lasted up to their entry to Bolt Middle School where Brandon and Dave ended up in the same class, while Eugene was assigned to a different one.
In the year 2013, Brandon began to grow black fur on his hands at school until his arms transformed into those of a Lucario. He was caught by a PKE agent despite his resistance and shut inside a base located close to his own house. There he would gain his phobia of hospitals and injections. He, along with many prisoners, were eventually rescued by the PRT Commander, Evan the Arcanine, and a hired mercenary, Kevin the Totodile.
Brandon was separated from the group, though he managed to make his escape with the aid of a Pichu he had saved from a crumbling room. However, the Pichu dies via a laser shot to the back in their escape down a manhole.He was then taken into the New York City Pokeuman base where he met up with Doctor Quinn and the headmaster, Aaron the Torterra. Despite being roommates with Kevin, he could never get along with him due to differing ideals. Brandon longs to make a name for himself and be restored to his human form.
Physical Description Edit
In his human form, Brandon is 5’7, skinny, pale skinned, and freckled on his neck. He wears a blue and black jacket that is always kept in an immaculate condition, due to it being one of the only articles of clothing he managed to take from his human home. His eyes are a dark brown and his black hair is always untidy despite attempts to comb it and he wears a pair of green, squared glasses that are always dirty due to suffering from Myopia.
Personality EditAfter his transformation into a Lucario, Brandon evolved into a pessimistic and cynical lone wolf. He blames Mew for much of the disasters in his life as well as ruining his life goals due to being partially responsible for his transformation into a Lucario. He is often compared to a much more famous Lucario, Brandon Chan of Long Island, thus inviting unwarranted envy and hatred from others.
Despite his rough exterior, he has a kind heart and is loyal to those who respect him. His personality changes drastically when in a good mood, becoming caring and confident.
Move Set Edit
- BONE RUSH- His signature which he learned quickly due to practicing baseball as a kid. He can also split the weapon which is uncommon among Lucarios.
- AURA SPHERE- Another move he takes pride in, despite not executing it perfectly. It takes up to 15 seconds for it to fully charge which embarrasses him.
- EXTREME SPEED- Due to him needing to be calm, it was hard for him to learn this move.
- CALM MIND- His most difficult move to learn. Brandon learned to open the doors of his inner self and lose himself in a coma-like state where even the strongest of attacks do little damage. Unlike Brandon Chan's iconic Energy Channeling, Guaman doesn't depend on people's adrenaline to pull this of.
