Sixfold League Application_Gwen by heatlightningplz Sixfold League Application_Gwen by heatlightningplz

App for :iconsixfold-league:! Due to a lack of skill on my new (to me yet rather outdated) wacom tablet, I had to do this app in traditional style. I messed up on shading in places, and my shaking hands were a nuisance for the lines but... I kinda like it... so...



Name: Guinevere "Gwen" Pendragon
Gender: female
Age: 21
Height: 5'10"
:bulletgreen: Gwen is a character! Her personality can be embodied by the word "fire". She has passion, energy, spunk, and, if it gets that way, anger. She goes all out in almost everything she does. As stated above, she is a ball of energy and is amiable and talkative most of the time. She isn't afraid to go out and meet new people, or show those around her just how tough she is. However, if you hurt or insult one of her pokemon or friends, well, lets just say your butt might look like the end of a Charizards tail pretty soon afterwards...

Brief History:
:bulletgreen: Gwen was born in Blackthorn City. Like most adventurers that start there, she got her first pokemon from Dragon Cave. However, instead of coming back with a dratini or the like, she emerged with a charmander. This was originally seen as a bad omen, but as she went on to win badges and eventually make it into the finals of the Kanto League, she gained the respect of her dragon training peers.

After completing both the League and Battle Frontier challenges in her region, she sought out new challenges. She journeyed through the other regions, even tried out Contests, but she found them repetitive of Kanto. Bored, and feeling she wasn't improving, she sought out new challenges.

That was when she heard of Ladon.

A dragon training academy! It sounded like just the place for her. Sure, the leader seemed like a chauvinistic jerk, but he also seemed knowledgeable and his demeanor would simple push her to do even better than ever. Thus she set out for Ladon and the rest of the story is yet to be seen.

-All of Gwen's pokemon are named after Knights of the Round Table, thus all are also male.
-Gwen owns other pokemon, but she left them behind in Kanto, taking only these three.
-Gwen hates swimming in deep water and is afraid of water types. They're just slimy and gross!
-Gwen's arm band is in the shape of a dragonair. It was given to her by her mother before she left for Ladon.
-Gwen hates dresses. (but she looks darn fine in them!)
-She loves martial arts, but especially tai chi. She says it keeps her calm in stressful situations.
-Despite this calming trick, she is not calm at all, preferring to do crazy stunts. She treats each one like a game and a training exercise at the same time.
-It is hard to get Gwen mad, but when you reach that point she gets scary, sometimes even violent.
-Gwen treats all rivals as friends, and all friends as rivals.



Name: Gawain
Species: Charizard
Gender: Male
Nature: Adamant
Characteristic: Hates to Lose
Ability: Blaze
Moveset: Sunny Day; Flare Blitz; Air Slash; Solar Beam
-Gawain will always start out a battle by performing Sunny Day. He fights better in strong sunlight.
-He is the oldest and most powerful of Gwen's pokemon, but don't let that serious game face fool you, Gawain is a happy-go-lucky pokemon and enjoys a joke or outing as much as the next.
-Though he will get cocky in battles, he should not be underestimated. He knows how to get serious when times get rough and is very good at pulling out a win in a pinch.
-Gawain is highly chivalrous. He will refuse, despite goading or danger to himself, to attack a pokemon while they are down. He will instead wait for them to gain their feet again before attacking. This is also a weakness since it means he takes it a little easier on female pokemon...
-His favorite move is Sunny Day.

Name: Agravain (Cape)
Species: Haxorus
Gender: Male
Nature: Impish
Characteristic: Thoroughly Cunning
Ability: Rivalry
Moveset: Outrage; Shadow Claw; Dragon Dance; Taunt
-Agravain is... well... aggravating and vain... He loves himself and will do anything to win, often taking cheap shots or hitting an opponent while they're down
-He loves playing pranks on Gawain and, when he can, Dagonet. Normally the jokes played on his elder brother are more malicious since he is jealous of the charizard's leadership position.
-Though a prankster, this pokemon is no fool like Dagonet. He uses his cunning on and off the battlefield so watch your pokemon if he is about. They might just fall to some... accidental harm that would force them out of the next competition...
-His favorite move is Shadow Claw.

Name: Dagonet (Jester's Hat)
Species: Grovyle
Gender: Male
Nature: Jolly
Characteristic: Somewhat of a Clown
Ability: Overgrow
Moveset: Acrobatics; Grass Knot; Dragon Breath; Detect
-Dagonet is not related to Gawain and Agravain, though they are related to each other
-Dagonet plays the wise fool and can often be found making smart, quip remarks, especially to Agravain whose speed is the least of the three.
-He is very quick on his feel and loves to play with his opponent using dodges and Detect.
-His favorite move is Grass Knot.
The only reason he refuses to forget the move Dragon Breath is because he inherited it from his father. Otherwise he would trade it out for something with more finesse like Leaf Blade. (It also serves as the punch line for most of his battle puns)
-He chose the Jester's Hat himself and, being his own quirky self, punched a hole in it and now wears it around his neck like a collar.

I saw! Thank you for using her! You did a great job, so good luck! ^^
Envos-the-Bouncy Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
AHH no, thank YOU. x'D
Gotta say, I found myself liking
her character more and more.
Probably because you throw in some
of her personality in text and dawww
it's cute. :B
Good luck on your Round 1 too!

Aw, well thank you! I hope do develop her more. I just need to actually do R1! :XD: And... Well... if you'd ever want to RP I'd be open to that... ^///^

And thank you! I'll need it! >.<

Hmm. I like the Ancient to Medieval themed attire. Ah! I knew those name's were familiar for some reason. XD Gotta love the tales involving the Knights of The Round Table.

Thanks! I wanted it to match the Ladon theme, but I also wanted it to look slightly modern.

Yeah! I'm reading through them now and they are very interesting indeed. They're not really commonly known names either (except maybe Gawain) because I didn't want to overlap with anyone so I'm not surprised you didn't know them right off. Of course, I also chose those names because those knights have very fun personalities to build off of. (Gawain and Agravain are brothers but where Gawain is noble and said to take his strength from the sun, Agravain is more tricky and helps kidnap Lady Guinevere and kill Morgause, his mother, for treason. And Dagonet is the court jester of Arthur and I kinda based him off of the Fool in King Lear.) I just need to practice my grovyles now... ^^;

Cool! Only wish I had the time to go through some of those stories again. :p
Ah, yes. Its interesting to see that you've not only adopted their names, bu their personalities as well. Meh, with naming my characters I simply give Latin or Greek names that don't really bare any significant meaning.

Haha. Maybe a little more practice. Your Grovyle looks okay, even though there is room for improvement. I'm not much of a drawer myself, but Grovyle is pretty much the only 'mons I can draw reasonably well. Hehe, but Haychel has been kind enough to show me a thing or two 'bout improving on it. :D
heatlightningplz Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's free domain so you should be able to find them online! And yeah, I like that. While reading through the stories I've already found two more knights I want to use in the future. ^^

There is nothing wrong with using Greek names! I absolutely love Ancient Greece (I'm a history major actually) and so when I saw your team name I was very intrigued. I especially like the use of the lamda sign playing off of the region in which Sparta was located. ^^ Anyway... I could probably ramble on, but I'll spare you my nerdy-ness. :XD:

Haychel is a great guy! Lucky duck getting drawing lessons from him. ;P I miss his streams, though hopefully I'll rejoin them once I get settled in here at college. But yes, practice makes perfect! And my school notebooks will be full of practice doodles! :D
slydragoon16 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Haha. Ah, please, I do not mind in the slightest. I love my ancient Greek history and have a bit of a habit of rambling myself. I am also doing a major in History and am currently in my first semester. I love my ancient Sparta and try to portray whatever elements of it through my team. So please, do feel free to talk.

Hehe. I know am lucky, very lucky to have someone like him. Meh, maybe I'll upload what I've drawn sometime. I'm not too bad at drawing Latios either.
heatlightningplz Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Really? Well then we can be nerdy Greek loving historians together! ^^ I'm a senior this year so this is my last year in school ("hooray!" or "oh no..." I haven't decided yet. XD ) I've studied Greece for FOREVER so if you do happen to have questions please feel free to ask! Sparta is amazing, at least most of the time... I'm a little peeved at them for selling Greece out to Persia in the end, but hey, they're pretty BA anyway.

You should post them! It would be cool to see them. Plus it would allow other people to critique them if you wanted new sets of eyes. Though Haychel is pretty amazing so... I don't know if you need another set! XD And Latios and Latias are fun to draw! Their wings always throw me a little though...
