History

Originally a child's doll. He was discarded and eventually took on a life of his own thanks to the residual pain of betrayal. He spent the next several decades with a grudge to deal with.

Cursed energy

Imagine the perfect life being torn away from you. Being abandoned by the one person you cared about? How would you feel? I don't like to think of it as "revenge." It's more of a debt paid.

Wild

It would be foolish to just sit and plot for a few years. Really, you would be much better served finding something to occupy your time. That's what I did. So far, it's worked out rather well.

The Woman

The woman was nice. The other Pokémon were a bit boring, but every so often they would lighten up and participate in an activity or two. Ah, well. At least two of them are dead now anyway, so it hardly matters.

The Bastard

That chapter's long closed. I suggest we move on.

Linoone

Linoone had some eggs and abandoned them. He found his children, but then he died. What a father. What an ABSOLUTE ROLE MODEL for the rest of us. If nothing else, Linoone made a wonderful punching bag. Nothing like a friend who will come right back after you insult him, or hit him in the face with a tree branch.

Lately

Banette has developed a number of productive, normal habits now — come on. Really. That is all the attention any of my finer works are getting? I am starting to doubt your ability to do my profile justice, darling mine. I even rewrote the last few sections for you, in my endlessly thoughtful way. Afraid I might have to handle this, eh?
I have acclimated well to modern society, and have developed a number of close, meaningful relationships. That said, I have a lovely little summer cottage far from the vast majority of active Pokémon and humans. It gives me an opportunity to focus on my work uninterrupted, should I feel the need to get away and have a little time to myself. For a time I made some lovely modern art sculptures using bodies and pelts I, ah. Came across. Which resulted in Linoone's children destroying his cave, those little darlings. I recall I may have promised revenge. Memory being what it is, I can hardly remember.
  • Hobbies:
    • Taxidermy.
    • Doll making.
    • Knitting.
    • Carving.
    • Hair Styling.
    • Putting on puppet shows with corpses for the neighborhood children.
    • Interior decorating. (See: Taxidermy)

Twitter

So many new friends, so little time to play with them all. Banette spends most of his time menacing the other Pokémon or cackling like a little purple idiot. May (or may not) legitimately care about — how poorly this is going. "Little purpose idiot?" Really. Honestly. Here I thought I was going to get a fair profile piece, and instead I'm branded an idiot. The nerve. Ha ha ha.
I may or may not have killed a number of people/Pokémon, but I prefer to keep the number vague in the interest of it being rather funny (to me). Either way, it's still an insignificant amount, when you consider just how many deaths the wide world of meat eaters is responsible for. I have gotten rather good with my ghostly little arms, and can strip the meat away from bone and flesh with relative ease. I also really don't see what this has to do with Twitter in the slightest. I have, apparently, taken us careening severely off course. Now, try again. I relinquish the wheel for the moment.
Despite his sneering insistence otherwise, Banette has come to depend on Twitter for a source of entertainment, and would probably be particularly bored - if you could stick to facts, rather that idle speculation, hm?
He uses it as a primary means by which to communicate with people, as he doesn't exactly speak very often. There have been a number of events he has participated in. The negative ones have taken their toll on him and his psyche. He's developed a bit of a hair-trigger, as of late. Talking to him is a bit like spinning a wheel and throwing a dart to pick his mood.

Violence

Banette managed a fair bit of damage to Linoone over the years, including several incidents with trees. He delights in causing anything ranging from mild discomfort and uneasy feelings to terror and pain. So far he has stuck to mind games with the other Pokémon, with a few notable exceptions - which we won't get into, hm?
It is likely that at least the child who discarded Banette originally is dead, one way or another. The same is true of the Son who inherited him. He has implied he used shared childhood memories against both of them in their inevitable ends.
Oh no, we're not implying things. Ha ha ha. Those are just two absolutely delightful stories. I'll be getting to those below. I am not one to boast, he is AHEM. But those are points of personal pride. Heh.

Relationships with other Pokémon

Strained, at best. Banette takes a great deal of pleasure in causing everyone around him distress. He also seems to have serious issues with being left to his own devices.

Nicknames

Banette has an odd habit of nicknaming other Pokémon. Whether they are pet names or insults is up for debate.

How are each of your characters reflected off your own personality and quirks?

Banette started off as a joke, but he evolved. He's clearly picked up on some of my insecurities about abilities (I am leery about whether or not I believe I can write a ghost, he isn't certain of his ghostly powers). His tendency to respond with something cutting, quick and dry came from me as well. His is just less tempered, filter taken off. It's also possible I've picked up a lot of habits from him, for better or worse. My general distrust of anyone offering me anything is certainly more pronounced after having to play that habit in him.

What are your characters' butts like?

Insubstantial.

YOU KNOW WHAT, FUCK IT. TELL US ALL YOUR DICK HEADCANONS, TOO, C'MON LET'S HEAR 'EM

What no.

When put in leadership positions, how do your characters react? Are they good leaders or bad? Why?

Oh good heavens. He's smart enough and perceptive enough to be a leader, but he's probably just going to get everyone killed. That's just a terrible idea.

Is there any part of your character(s) body that they are insecure about or embarrassed?

Being a ghost in general makes him uncomfortable. There are times when he cannot stand being in a doll, and regularly destroys them. There are times when he cannot stand being a ghost at all, and tries to destroy himself.

Disgusted by it.

What was your characters childhood like? How did it shape who they are?

Not a positive experience.
