Gym Leader Emil
Emil has a well tanned skin all over his body. He has shining teal eyes and green hair, which is usually towered up. He looks way younger than he is, due to his lack of body hair and pimples, and due to his small size. In fact, as long as you don't hear his voice, you might think he has never entered puberty.
Apparel & Accessories
Emil likes natural colors: Blue, green, orange, brown. He almost always wears shorts and a T-shirt, although sometimes only shorts. His signature Pokémon, Oddish, is also part of his accessory, since she always hides in his pockets. Additionally, he always wears a necklace with a wooden pendant in the form of a blossom, although he has many of these and chooses another one every day.
Emil is specialized in playful Grass Type Pokémon. His favorite one is obviously Oddish, but he also has a Reedling on his consistent team. His 3rd team slot is usually filled by one of the Pokémon that he is caring for at the moment.
As a kid, Emil learned how to handle plants as well as Bug-, Poison- and Grass-Type Pokémon in a neighbor's garden class. He quickly learned that Pokémon are happiest when they can battle regularly. He then made his apprenticeship in the local gym, which is also a care center for ill Pokémon. When the gym leader retired shortly after, about half a year ago, and Emil was the only one who was comfortable with taking the responsibility, he became the new gym leader, despite his young age and even younger look.
Morality & Philosophy
Emil is young and motivated, but his urge to win is not as big as that of other trainers. He battles for the sake of battling and having fun with his Pokémon. He is never mad for losing, and is happy to give trainers a first gateway into their gym challenge, knowing all too well that he is the weakest of all the gym leaders.
His relaxed nature allows Emil to take on tasks of high responsibility with ease, giving his best every time and getting over failures mostly without tears or anger - also over those of his employees.
At the beginning, Emil only wanted to be near his beloved Grass Type Pokémon. But he quickly learned, that the best way to make them feel special is to have them fight in important battles. Ever since he made this observation, he is using the Pokémon from the care center in his arena battles. It is not about winning, but about making every single Pokémon in his care feel special.
Vices & Personality flaws
While it can be very refreshing at times, Emil's serenity also entails an inability to speak out unpleasant truths. He is also pretty bad at taking things fully seriously. Some might say, that his gym challenge is not challenging at all - and might then fail horribly, because his Pokémon are so motivated during battle. Emil might be a good Gym challenge, but he is not fully suited to the role of a leader.
