welcome to another of Daisy's wanted ads! these are just general plot points instead of a full-on wanted list; musings for me and my Wren. if you feel you can contribute to any of them - speak up! please post here or contact me on discord. discord works best to flesh out ideas.
A DARKER LINE;
obviously, wren is going to be getting her hands dirty. she has joined rocket to proclaim a big middle finger at the world that she felt wronged her. not really understanding the criminal life, she does what she can to survive. she's a fighter. without a cliche sad or dramatic backstory, people will not really understand why she's even in rocket. she is not a functioning sociopath, nor does she get pleasure out of suffering. (unless you fudged with her and she hates you) but - she has the capacity for darkness. even if she keeps such thoughts to herself right now, she can be cruel. she can be mean. she can be shaped. i am looking for Rockets (or just shitty people) to mold her. not full on manipulation - she knows she will be manipulated unless its done well - but more so "hey baby c'mere and let me teach you the ways of our world" sorta thing.
as a grunt, she can get away with wishy-washyness until she gains more power and rank. people can think she's actually just weak and/or not confident yet. they can push her around. i want her to gain infamy - and fast. so i need rp partners in team rocket. she also has the capacity to be nearly anything you need for your character (within reason!) with enough development. if you feel she'd fit something you have in mind, dm me. we can work it out.
THE PATH TO REDEMPTION;
on the other hand, wren also has the capacity to be redeemed. this will only work if she has turned completely to crime or is having misgivings about Rocket. aka development is needed. check back later for this.
but it can also be a personal redemption - letting go of her hate and anger to focus on a greater purpose. someone or some people could take her, show her that life doesn't suck as she thinks. this could be a friendship, best friendship, friendly rivals, persistent people who won't give up on her/unfazed by her sarcasm etc. even a ship/romance. not gonna lie; the whole 'sleeping with the enemy' plot point is fun and not something i've done. so i would totally like for her to be involved with a league member romantically. anyway; something that changes her mind, makes her grow as a character and exposes her to a different way of life.
YOU KILLED MY FRIEND;
i head canon that a league member actually killed her Swampert. it makes sense why she'd join rocket - for revenge. at the time, she was a normal trainer going on her journey. her only aspirations were to gain badges and work her way up with her beloved Pokemon team. it didn't have to be an intentional kill either; it could have been an accident during an intense battle. but Wren didn't forgive so easily, especially since she had been picked on a lot by much stronger trainers. she lost a lot of battles and it made her an easy target. this was around her teenager years, could set up for a rivalry that turned hateful, and also make her jaded further. a lot of plotting could be done between these two characters with many paths to take.
FIRST COME does not mean FIRST SERVE.
i will take who best fits Wren's plot points. thank you for looking! hope to plot with you soon!
