HPM: Nero by Plutopian HPM: Nero by Plutopian
Name: Nero
Age: 31
Gender: Male
Pokemon: Noivern 
Height: 6'2"
Bodystyle: Skinny/Athletic 
Birthday: October 9
Home Island: Mystery Isle

Personality: Cool, Collected, and Charismatic Nero is the kind of guy that has an easy time making small talk. He's an excellent listener and is even pretty decent at resolving other people's issues. However, he has a hard time taking criticism and will avoid direct conflict, even going so far as to leave the situation entirely and "check out". Nero likes to laugh and have a good time but has a nasty habit of making terrible "dad jokes". He is also an awful liar and often over shares which is a bit of a problem when his voice is being broadcast over the islands for a good portion of the day.

     Nero was born in a rainy fishing town on the coast of the ocean. His mother left his father when he was only a toddler in order to be with another man and he never really saw much of her after that. Being raised by a single father with a physically and time demanding job, Nero was often left to his own devices. He had no siblings or any neighbor children to play with but was very adventurous as a child, always ending up with scrapes and bruises. This was especially true around the time Nero first started using his wings to fly. His father was incredibly lenient and would correct him rather than punish him (since he wouldn't have been around to enforce any punishment he may have passed).
     Despite the lack of parental guidance (for the most part), Nero grew up to be a perfectly acceptable teenager with perfectly acceptable grades and hobbies. When he was fourteen he and a couple of his friends formed a band. Although he dabbled in various instruments, the Noibat took to singing after some persuading from his friends who weren't all that great behind a microphone. While he was engaged and talented on stage, Nero found the 'afterparties' to be somewhat uncomfortable since he wasn't used to so much attention (especially from the opposite gender). He did eventually adapt and learned to be calm and enjoy the attention. Nero became talkative to a fault when with his friends. For the next few years the boys were the talk of their small town. The plan had always been to make it big after high school but when the time came, every record company turned them down.
     Crushed, his band mates moved on to do other things - college, marriage, full-time jobs. Nero bounced around, unable to find his niche in life. It didn't bother him too much, though. He just did whatever he felt like, effectively going with the flow. He got a job when he needed money and quit when he didn't. Predictably, working at clothing stores, fast food joints, and painting houses did not turn out to be a satisfying lifestyle and Nero sought out something different. 
     Putting his voice to good use, he got a job at the local radio station and worked there for a few years before deciding on a whim that he would start his own. He heard of Raccolto from a listener who had called in one day and figured that would be the perfect place. Now, having worked at jobs that were, for at least the majority, low paying, Nero didn't have a ton of cash saved up and he didn't have any magical dying relatives to bestow great amounts of cash on him. What he did have, however, was good credit. So, like any adult, he took out a loan and decided he would erect his own radio station on this remote island chain. What could go wrong?

Wow! I love his design! The lead up to him coming to Raccolto flows so nicely! Would you be up for RPing sometime? I think he and Benson would get along famously. (:

cool, a radio station ouo, what kind of music does he air?
Plutopian Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
Mostly alternative, classic rock, indie stuff. But he takes requests and sometimes fills the time with air time with obscure free-form jazz!

Hi Pluto!
Here to give a quick crit~

Now, this seems rather acceptable~
So there are no real issues here for me.

I like the history, it is done well, but I feel it could use a tad bit more information?
We know he is raised by a father he likely doesn't see till the sun sets, we know he has free reign to run about his town. Perhaps give us a small side story of his adventures?
Or perhaps go more into his school days? Even in his youth, when he first entered school, what may have been his favorite classes? Did he have decent grades, bad grades? Was he in band, choir, or orchestra, or did he teach himself to play guitar, or sing? Did he even have singing lessons, or instrument lessons, or was he just cocky and thought he sounded awesome when he and his band practiced?

Perhaps tell us more of some of his jobs? Fast food chains? Clothing stores? 

Maybe even go into how he knows how to set up all the electrical equipment for building his radio tower and setting up his room for broadcasting? For now, it seems after a few years at a station he may know how to set up his room, but surely he doesn't know how to build his own tower?

Fun facts:
Here, I only want the location of his home and tower to be considered. Towers are tall and are often hit by lightening. Having his tower right in the middle of a forest seems incredibly dangerous during the summer season and summer storms. And I, having a character living in that forest, don't quite want it burnt down during a storm >V>;

The app is grand, though perhaps just a tad lacking,
but I would love to see a little more in that history~

Thanks Elfy! I tried to change everything you mentioned (I underlined the changes for easy readin'!) but there are a few things that aren't in the app regarding his radio tower. He's not building it himself anymore than he is forging his own steel. He's paying people to set it up for him like you would pay people to build a house or a barn. Also, about the location. Radio towers have get struck by lightning all the time! But it redirects the electricity down into the ground through a wire. If anything, it will be taking more hits than the surrounding (and notably more flammable) surrounding trees.
