Now living in Castelia city, Raven has somehow managed to get pulled into applying to become a Coordinator. Not that he really mind, seeing as who it was who pulled him in.
Out of his coordinators clothes, he lives his life as a delivery driver for the Rapidash Express and takes out odd jobs as a pokemon hunter out there. For those, he usually works with organizations like pokemon centers or good reputation companies like Silph Co. nowadays. After working for a while on the Ohana Islands to help with the Commemorative Cup and to introduce Kalosian mons to the wilderness of the islands, he's been recommended by Taz Saints to the Bourkes to help with their deliveries.
A man who loves to get excitement from dangerous situations. The more intense a situation becomes, the better he reacts. Loyal to his friends, he's very dependable and will come through for anyone he cares about. He's got acute senses, thanks to living as a pokemon hunter for so many years, and this allows him to sense very small changes in one attitude or almost insignificant details that turns out to be more important than they appeared.
He's also very adept at close combat, thanks to the fact that he goes into battle himself when hunting mons.
Shiny Absol ~ Male
A huge specimen amongst the Absol species (4'0" at the shoulder, while most Absol get to about 3'0" at the shoulder), Joshua have been Raven's partner since he was a kid. Like Raven, he's a hunter to the very core and wouldn't easily back off from a fight, unless there was really no chance to win. Pokemon contests are totally new to him and, although he likes a new challenge, he's not sure how to react to this new situation. He's probably going to go with the flow, trying his best in the contests.
Very loyal to his partner, he'd never abandon him in a pinch. While he may look scary and all, he does have a soft spot for kids and is very caring of them. His size is large enough to allow him to easily carry an adult over a long distance.
He has also pretty much adopted Luna like an uncle would do for a niece or a nephew.
Note : Following bulbapedia's standards, an Absol is generally 3'11" for reference. This would make Joshua about 5'0" with their same standards.
Ragnell ~ Honedge ~ Female
Raven second partner, she became an addition to the team on his first trip to Kalos. As it happens, Ragnell like the taste of Raven's soul and stay on his side to get the chance to taste it again every so often. Very close to the hunter because of this soul sharing, she's become like an extension of himself when they fight together. She can be a bit of a jealous blade and usually stay outside of her pokeball with her scabbard attached to Raven's belt.
She's not very happy to see Luna taking all the attention of Raven lately.
Luna ~ Skitty ~ Female
A recent gift from Niko, Luna cuteness quickly made her loved by Raven. Although he does not show it as much in public, he does loves to play with the playful little Skitty. Don't be fooled by her cute demeanor though, she can be a handful. She loves to pull pranks on both Raven and Joshua as she knows she can get out of it easily. She's more wary of Ragnell though.
