TWENTY-TWO • FEMALE • PANSEXUAL
Iola wouldn’t usually stand out in a crowd – fortunately, given the sort of people she runs around with. She has long black hair that she never keeps in the same style for very long. When she’s at home trying to relax, it’s usually let down, but otherwise it can be free or tied up in whatever style suits her fancy at the moment. Her skin is relatively pale, with no obvious scars or blemishes, and her eyes are gray-blue. She stands at about 5’4” and has a moderate build.
Iola will wear anything, but prefers comfortable clothing that won’t restrict her movement. Her favorite colors are in the blue to violet range, but she’s not that picky. She usually wears a cheap watch on her left wrist, but any other jewelry varies with the day’s mood.

Team Umbra • Grunt
Iola is very social and group-oriented – this is how Team Umbra got her so easily. She needs the safety and security that comes with being part of something larger than herself, and has a really hard time functioning otherwise. She’s loyal to a fault, standing by her friends even when it’s apparent that doing so will end badly for her. This loyalty means that her companions know they can count on her to do her best for them, but it also means that her moral code is almost entirely based on what those around her consider right and proper.
By default, Iola is friendly and laid back, becoming hostile only when necessary for whatever mission she happens to be on. She does her best to keep things casual with any non-Umbra people she encounters, but devotes as much time and effort as she can into making close friendships with all the members of her team. She’s not naïve enough to think it’s possible to be everyone’s best friend, but the more positive relationships she has in the team, the better. She has been known to over compliment people, coming off as either flirty or sycophantic.
THINGS I LIKE
Being part of a group.
Music (most types).
Incense, candles, and other such things.
THINGS I DISLIKE
THINGS I FEAR
Ending up alone.
Iola was born and raised in Nimbasa City, Unova, and she was the youngest of four siblings. It was a good, hectic life, as far as she’s concerned. Her parents were usually working and neglectful when they weren’t, but she had her older siblings and all their friends to take care of her, and most of her early life that she remembers was spent hanging out with them in the amusement park, the Musical Theater, or Big Stadium and Small Court. Back then, she was too busy having fun to notice any real loneliness or take notice of the fact that she had yet to make any friends her own age.
Then she got older, and her siblings and their friends got older along with her. As the people she’d grown up around matured, they were sent off to academies overseas, left town to start a Pokemon journey, or became too preoccupied with work and starting families of their own to spend time with the core group anymore. Said core group dwindled until Ionia’s mid teens, when the youngest of her siblings married and went off to live in Castelia City. Suddenly alone, Iola spent the next few years wandering the amusement park, looking for anyone that might be as lonely as she was. Occasionally, she’d find someone or a small group that tolerated her presence, but it was inevitably a tourist that would always wind up leaving forever within a day or two. She just wasn’t lucky enough in this span of time to encounter another local in the super-crowded areas of the city.
When she came of age, she was sent to Kleur Academy, and Iola looked forward to the fresh start and fresh opportunities. She’d be living on a crowded campus full of students, right? There were so many opportunities for friendship! She was given some spending money as a parting gift, and she spent it on adopting the two Pokemon that would move into the dorms with her. That way, she’d have two companions immediately, cutting through the loneliness until she could make some other friends.
And, it worked! She made plenty of casual friends after taking the time to get settled in and figure out all the important places to be on campus. She hit it off with one particular friend who lived somewhere off-campus, and that friend started introducing her to his other friends, and eventually she was recruited into their group – Team Umbra. By the time the semester was half over, she had dropped out of the academy so she could dedicate herself wholly to her team, and she intends to be the most valuable Team Umbra member she can be!

On behalf of Kleur Academy and its community, I am pleased to announce your admission! We are delighted to have you and your pokemon join our student body!
iola kazandis has been accepted!
'kay so fun fact? never heard of the name iola before until we had anesthesia lab where we practiced sedating and placing catheters in dogs. the sweet pup i was paired with was named iola so now i'm kind of attached to the name, so needless to say i'm kind of attached to io now fff. she's really adorable and i actually really like how she's not "cliche bad" (not that there's anything wrong with that) but it's kind of neat to have someone who is just in the "i want to belong" mentality. makes for so much more spontaneity in it. so glad to have our first official recruit!!
