simon e. sez
22 • MALE • PANSEXUAL
simon is, undeniably, a pretty man. long, silky pink hair with never a strand out of place. slender, carefully manicured nails with perfect cuticles. even the way simon walks has a sense of elegance to it. it would come of no surprise to anyone that sees him that simon grew up in a family of wealth where dignity and poise were more a requirement than anything. it is, perhaps, physically impossible for simon to appear any way other than if he rolled out of bed on a perfect hairday and was dressed by a personal stylist. his clothes are always carefully ironed and smell of fresh laundry no matter the time of day. he gives off an impression of absolutely cleanliness and a sense of order that would make people believe he was nothing less than a high strung type-a hypochondriac. and yet, despite all of this, simon puts no emphasis on his looks. he acknowledges his pretty face and his flawless hair, but makes no effort to flaunt it or lure in equally pretty faces. it's just a shame he can't say "no" to traditionally styled designer wear. perhaps if he could, his pockets would be lined with just a bit more money. but, alas, such is the cost of beauty.

to put it bluntly, simon is a pacifist. try as hard as you might to rile him up, he simply will not respond. more often one to roll over and admit defeat than he is to risk any bad blood, it is damn near impossible to upset him. it is important to note, though, that he can- and will- take anyone to court if they truly wish to aggressively pursue him. simon takes absolutely nothing personally and prides himself in being the purest form of devil's advocate. that said- the only issue he is unwilling to budge his stance on is that of pokemon in combat. he sees absolutely no point in bringing such pure, innocent creatures to any harm- even if by their own volition- as surely they only concede in hopes of pleasing their trainer. he respects that others have their opinions and that some may never agree with his point of view, but he would consider it a crime not to at least put the thought in their head. perhaps one of his best talents is putting on one of his more handsome smiles as he innocently hands out brochures on the plaza.
looking at him, you'd think that simon often doesn't get his hands dirty... and you'd be right. since the day he was born, there were staff paid to do almost anything for him. dress him, feed him, pick up after him. although simon is a grown, mature, and capable individual, he is not one to do more than what is required to keep himself fed, clean, and punctual. his living space is meticulously organized and all his laundry is perfectly creased from both ironing and precise folding. every item has its place, just as every hair on his head does. he will not clean up after others, but he will kindly get your attention to let you know (with a smile) that you might want to pick up after yourself. and he will not do what he can pay someone else to do- e.g. running errands, cleaning, and even laundry. most of his clothes are, in fact, dry cleaned. he does, however, enjoy gardening.
having had to attend one to many of his parent's formal events as a child, simon absolutely despises having to dress up in anything more than a nice collared shirt with a tie. he avoids khakis when at all possible and is much more inclined to sport torn jeans with a basic v-neck shirt- most often dark shades of blue, purple, or simply black. he is, believe it or not, a flip-flops guy: think hemp, not rubber. a fan of all pokemon and nature as a whole, simon thinks plastics and other forms of waste are a sin and great measures should be taken to avoid them. he will buy out entire stocks of reusable water bottles to hand out (after slapping on "pokemon peace society" stickers, mind you... using eco-friendly, recycled paper, of course.)
he is a rich hippie. there. i said it.

the sez family name boasts a proud lineage of lawyers- both by blood and by marriage. it is neither required nor heavily encouraged that the children born into the family stick to this tradition, nor is it that they marry in such a way. it is quite possible, however, that lawyers only breed and marry lawyers. it is quite the wonder that they haven't yet run out of options and been forced to inbreed yet. it comes as no surprise, then, that simon has always had an interest in law and was eager to dive right into the curriculum when offered the opportunity at kleur academy. however, his insatiable love for ancient relics and traditionalism led him into an equally avid interest in history that he could not deny. his parents, though accepting, were undoubtedly secretly disappointed when their son revealed that he would major in both studies... with a potential emphasis on his historical studies. as an only child, the family law firm would have fallen on his shoulders, though his family still holds out hope of this possibility regardless.
simon, a child raised on the silver spoon, grew up seeing the world in rose-tinted glasses. he understands that the world is filled with strife and struggle, yet he lacks the capacity to grasp natural human dissatisfaction. as someone with little to no conflict in life, simon grew up very mild-tempered and an extreme pacifist. having been privileged to pay his way out of anything (and the added benefit of being able to threaten a lawsuit if bullied), he encountered no opposition in his early years and believes everything should be sorted rationally and harmoniously.
in his elementary years, simon was granted a jigglypuff that had "retired" from a life of battling. he grew up wrongly assuming he was doing the jigglypuff a favor by "rescuing" it from his past. unbeknownst to him, tofu misses his past life in the arena and instead acts every bit the obedient and harmonious pokemon that is expected of him for fear of rejection by simon. after all, he's had a rather cushy life since "adoption". incorrectly interpreting his adoption and "conversion" of tofu to be a testament to his pacifist views, simon has established the pokemon peace society and funnels his large allowance into fundraising, flyers, and peaceful protests in attempt to ban all forms of pokemon physicality (though use of pokemon in contests and service is up for large debate in the organization, simon does not directly oppose it.) his parents are both aware and cautiously supportive despite the lack of alignment in their views- after all, it's the most adamant simon has ever shown to be about anything. ever. they're merely relieved to see their child has some amount of fight within him.
