Name: Nanami Burlow (Nana)
Age: 16 years old
Date of Birth: September 5th
Birthplace: Lavaridge Town, Hoenn
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Face Claim: Yuzuriha Inori, GUILTY CROWN
Nanami has an unusual pinkish color to her hair. Evenly layered and naturally straight, it ends directly at her shoulder blades. Brushed daily, Nanami's hair has a smooth, soft and sleek appearance. Her oval shaped eyes are a deep crimson color, making them appear slightly larger than normal. Nanami's face is smooth and heart shaped, perfectly clear of acne having been washed and taken care of daily. Her eyebrows are evenly plucked, giving them a thin, attractive look. She has an average sized head, not too small and not too large. with a smooth and slightly small nose, it gives her facial features a gentle, feminine appearance. Nanami is the kind of girl that doesn't use make-up, for she believes that the outer beauty comes from within.
Nanami has a semi-long and slender neck, keeping her head held high. With small shoulders, she stands straight and poised, supporting her chest and not once does she slouch. standing at the height of 5 ft. and 6 in., she has a slender and skinny frame, keeping herself fit and healthy by running an occasional mile or two, hence her smooth long legs. she has slender and smooth hands, supported by her slightly skinny arms. her hips are about average, not too wide and not too thin. her average breast size is around a c, so not too small or not too big. Nanami has no tattoos nor scars. For everyday wear, nanami wears a spaghetti strapped black dress with red ribbons sewed onto it. The skirt is directly above her knees and at the end of the skirt, it has white and black frills. To go with the dress, she wears skinny black boots that almost reach her knees.
Personality: Nanami usually tends to put herself in someone else's shoes to figure out their perspective on a certain situation. She tries to understand where that person is coming from, and tends to understand them a little better. she shows sympathy for those who deserve it, and brings kindness to those that need it. Nanami is known to try and find the good side of others. she tends to focus on the positive aspect of a situation, instead of immediately thinking that it's no use. she always has a smile on her face, hoping to share that smile with others around her. Nanami believes that honesty is the best policy, whether it hurts ones feelings or it's not pleasant for the ears. she sticks to her mother's motto, "if the truth hurts, suck it up." though there are times when nanami can be brutally honest, making her seem rather blunt. however, her honesty can also help change a person, probably for the better. Nanami was raised on how to depend on yourself whenever in a tough situation, or if you're traveling alone. there are times when you must think of yourself first instead of focusing on another person. because of past situations, Nanami has become very capable of taking care of herself and her Pokemon.
If one were to get on her bad side, nanami would either lash out at them instantly, or snap their heads off. she has a nasty temper if one were to make her angry. there are times when she has a hard time controlling that anger, but it's very rare for her anger to result in physical violence. her sweet words become cold and harsh, and her tone stinging with venom. this tends to make people avoid her as much as possible, not wanting to be the next person to be lashed at. Nanami tends to become envious of something or someone very easily. an example of this is when she looks through a magazine and finds a picture of a beautiful female model. she envies that model's appearance, and beings to doubt her own. another example is if she has a crush on someone, and finds that person with another girl. she feels rather uncomfortable with the girl being with her crush, and she'll start asking herself what her crush sees in that girl instead of her. Nanami tends to believe almost everything she hears, which makes it easier for a person to manipulate her. she puts her trust into a person so easily, that she becomes emotionally crushed to find that the person used her or lied to her. this tends to put her into a few uncomfortable situations, ones that might get her into serious trouble, or put her life on the line. Despite nanami's polite nature, there are times when she can come across as childlike. for example, when in an argument with her parents, she tends to whine and pout like a small child. even though she hardly ever shows this side of her, there are times when she loses her composure, and acts younger than her actual age.

Nanami grew up as an only child on Lavaridge Town, Hoenn by two loving parents. She had always been fond of Pokemon but while growing up, she had troubles fitting in with children her age. However, despite all the teasing, Nanami refused to let it get to her. She was a cheerful young girl, always having a smile on her face and always did her best to make friends. Nanami had almost always been found singing and dancing in front of her bedroom mirror, talking her own secret language. Her parents had taught her many things about fire type Pokemon while she was still young, and decided at the age of 8 that she would become a singer and trainer, like both her father and mother.
As a teenager, Nanami developed a natural talent for singing. She started to perform for other people, including her parents. Despite this, she was still having troubles making friends with others. That is, until she met a particular boy around her age who became her very first friend, and possibly her first crush. They were inseparable; they went everywhere together. One day when he had to leave Lavaridge Town, her heart was broken. He had given her a locket with a picture of him inside, promising her that he would come back and see her again. She continues to perform as a singer, and is still to this very day, waiting for that boy to return.
Having just turned sixteen, Nanami has finally reached the age to leave her hometown of Lavaridge to become a Pokemon Trainer like her parents before her. Despite having waiting for the young boy she cared deeply for, she grew tired and sick of waiting, so she decided to look for him herself. She took a cruise ship off Hoenn and took off for Falling Star Academy, head held high and heart racing. She had never been outside of Hoenn before, she knew. She wanted to see the world, to see what was out there. She was scared, but she was also determined to keep moving forward.
