//Name: Bethany; better known as the Crazy Bird Lady [or some variant thereof]
//Age: Early 30s, not that she'd tell you [ "Your human years mean nothing to me"]
Bethany's had one problem that's plagued her from birth: She's schizophrenic. She hears voices and thinks they're gods ["Mussingnoes"] and since she's the only one who can hear them, she obviously must have been 'chosen'. For what, she'll never say. She always had a bad habit of wandering away from her village, whenever her voices suggested it.
Her parents did their best to help her, from taking every medication known at the time to enlisting the help of priests. Some things seemed to improve her condition for a while, but she always seemed to revert back to following the Mussingnoes.
Eventually, she left her family behind, believing them to be against the Mussingnoes, and began her life in the wilderness.
- She sacrifices pokemon to her 'gods' because otherwise, naturally, they'll kill her.
- She's also been known to attack humans as well, as per her delusional deities' will.
- As an ultimate testament to her belief in the Mussingnoes, she cut off one toe on each foot.
- In order to keep her victims from coming back to kill her, she offers some of her blood to the ground every now and again, leaving her quite scarred, though rarely with any serious wounds.
- She wholeheartedly believes she can turn into a bird.
- She isn't hearing any real deities; they are all in her head.
- She puts together sacrificial altars and gives a new meaning to the same processes because she doesn't remember what she said they were for the first time.
- Similarly, when she notices her make up has washed away, she redoes it differently each time because she can't remember what it originally looked like.
- Claims these facts to be the will of the Mussingnoes.
- She can read -silently even, write, and is overall well educated, though she's probably pretty rusty thanks to falling prey to her own delusions.
Overall, she's quite friendly, though her disturbing and disjointed speech tends to drive most people away, not that she has a problem with that - most people just can't understand the might of the will of the Mussingnoes. However, should the voices tell her you need to die for them, she will be highly unlikely to hesitate such a command. She tends to stick to the woods.

/Extra - History
He found PBL wandering the woods, talking to no one and decided to follow her out of curiosity. The sight amused him so much, he decided to continue following her, eventually revealing himself and claiming to be the 'Prophet of Mussingnoes'. He used Night Shade to convince her. Since then she happily followed him around as he led her farther and farther into her own insanity.
Bored, he follows PBL around to keep her from finding her sanity. He finds much amusement in it, and greatly dislikes Sophia and Pax. Sort of an 'if you aren't with me, you're against me' mentality. Tends to go too far. Dark sense of humor. Generally callous and uncaring of others. Likes to play mean spirited tricks when he's bored, and will tear others down for his own amusement.
- Fighting Style
Trickery and deception first. If he anticipates a long battle, he might throw out a future sight beforehand. If all seems lost, he will teleport away from harm.

Pax and she knew each other long before meeting PBL. She was surprised to see him there as it was the first time she'd ever seen a pokemon like Pax before. She befriended him and sorta started looking out for his well-being.
Nurturing, but still playful herself, she comes off as kind of motherly, especially to Pax. She's generous and good-natured, and works to bring PBL back into the real world.
- Fighting Style
Very clever and thought out. Sometimes works with Pax to bring down enemies.
----------------------- // Numel - M -----------------------
He doesn't really remember how he wound up in the desert resort, but he did, and was fairly scared and lonesome until Sophia came along. He saw PBL and Prophet wandering around lost, and asked Sophia to help them, so they did. Despite Prophet, he wanted to stick around.
Laid back to a fault and not very bright, Pax enjoys the simple pleasures of life, which sometimes garners ridicule from Prophet, who takes to teasing him when PBL isn't around. He's a generally sweet pokemon who enjoys making friends and having a good time.
- Fighting Style
Firstly defend. If defending doesn't work, his attacks are strong, but completely lack aim. -------------------------------------------------------------
Oh man, fantastic story XD I absolutely love it and I don't think I'll ever look at 'Mussingnoes' the same way again. I can't wait to see more of her, it's fantastic when people come up with such unique and well thought out stories!
Oh man, I love her ;u; Her backstory's super great, definitely one of the best in the group! I love her Pokemon! She's one of the best legitimately insane character's I've seen, too. My NPC likes birds too...but he'd probably be afraid of this lady ovo
She'd probably walk off a cliff if the 'Mussingnoes' asked her to. But she knows if she does what they ask before, they'd never ask her to do something crazy like that [well it's only crazy if she's not in bird form]. Some of her 'rituals' and shit are just a combination of things she read/heard/learned about before ditching her family. So, they really don't mean jack shit to anyone but her, and no one else can quite figure out how she came to that conclusion. Which she is more or less okay with depending on if you try to give her shit about it. The Mussingnoes probably wouldn't like that.
He might not have a need to be, other than her .... eccentricities... So long as he respects her delusions, and stays on Prophet's good side, if that's possible, he should be... basically okay. Physically speaking.
