6XL: Matilda Walker by etesian 6XL: Matilda Walker by etesian
My Sixfolds League NPC. I have now discovered the joy of redesigning my own pokemon... I may never go back to original designs.

AUSSIEMONS! I dunno why exactly, but I really wanted to make an Australian Aboriginal character. So I did. Enjoy. Or don't. Or do. :3


Name: Matilda Walker
Age: 17
Height: 5’4”
Weight: 134 lbs

Short fused. Big talking. Forever in a foul mood. Matilda is incredibly diligent and one of the more reliable people you will likely ever meet. She tends to use short sentences that are blunt and to the point. On duty she’s irritable and impatient. Off duty she’s a lot more easy going. But boredom drives her insane, so she takes longer shifts than she probably should.

As a guide, Matilda would much rather move as fast as possible with as little talking as possible. (she hums to herself a lot) She has been known to doze off on tours where she rides Cooraine, letting her trusted bird take the helm. “You fall behind, you will get left behind.” She threatens before all her tours. And her obvious distaste for tourists makes it all the more believable. Stupid questions are met with smartass answers or a handing over of a pamphlet. Good questions she will give her best answer if she can, or tell you she doesn’t know.

She takes more kindly to the archeologists, and tends to ask a few questions of them as to what they are looking into and what they have discovered. But at the sites, she usually pulls her hat over her eyes and naps until it’s time to return to the plateau.

At night, Arceus help you if she finds you out past curfew. “My cubone knows false swipe, so I’m really not afraid to beat you within a literal inch of your life”. If she suspects someone has gotten past her and other patrollers, she will go down and look for you. (not by foot of course, but look she will.)

Brief Backstory:
Matilda has helped out around Terran Alto since she was around 10. Usually helping her parents in their trinket shop, and when she got older, shadowed rangers. Matildra dropped out of school so she could work and sends some money back to her family. She became a ranger because she already loved the desert and the canyon and the critters and areas in it. So really being a ranger is her ideal job. Tourists however, she cannot handle as well. For every informed good polite tourist, there are 5 ignorant jerks who just want to have their picture taken with the pretty rocks. So while Matilda never openly insults them, she does make a point to show she’s unhappy that she has to “babysit” but takes the protection part of her job very seriously.

-She has an Australian accent.
-She paints her mons for spiritual reasons, and because it makes them look cool
-Her pokemon are part of her family. Matilda greatly values family, even if she’s not especially fond of the people in it.


Name: Coorain
Species: Altaria
Gender: Female
Nature: Careful
Ability: Natural Cure
Personality: Coorain is a gentle paranoid creature. She is very aware of the surrounding areas. She hears music and everything and likes to whistle along. She always looks for non-violent answers preferring intimidation or putting the opponent to sleep.

Name: Waratah
Species: Cubone
Gender: Female
Nature: Bold
Ability: Lightning Rod
Personality: Waratah is nearly Coorain’s opposite. She is outgoing. Rash. Full of herself. And generally quite excited by life. She is Matilda’s partner, and is like a less angry version of her. At night, you can see a bit more of her insecurities come to light. But she has full faith in Matilda to keep her safe.

Name: Balun
Species: Quagsire
Gender: Male
Nature: Laz
Ability: Water Absorb
Personality: Despite appearances and stereotypes, Balun is pretty clever. Resourceful, and kind, he’s a good person to have if you are trapped on a desert island. His water makes desert travel a lot more pleasant. He doesn’t get stressed. Sometimes he’s a little too calm, but he always comes through. Slow and steady, and all that jazz.

I really like the random markings on Matilda's Pokemon, they really fit the Terran Alto theme! <3

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like them! :hug: but the markings aren't random. They're based on basic aboriginal dot painting styles for emus, kangaroos, and platypi. But they were to help fit the terran alto theme ^^

Aboriginal dot paints! First time heard about that *u* And now it makes the markings even more special!
