○◙♥Background♥◙○ Family Members Laram has been an orphan since he was born. History: No one knows Laram's origins. He was left on the doorstep of an orphanage a few days after he was born. The women in charge took him in and cared for him. However, there were no other boys in the orphanage, for it was one for girls. From an early age, it was apparent that he was special. His caretakers instilled in him a code of morals that he will never part from. They began to say thing to him like, "You can unite the world." "I believe that you'll bring peace." "Never give up, you're meant to save this world." He grew up trying to fulfill the dreams that they pushed on him. He soon went to the ninja academy, and found out that he wasn't as special as he thought. There were many other children there just as strong, if not stronger, than him. He seemed to be average, except that he had the fortitude and tenacity to be the best, regardless. Through hard work, he graduated the top of his class.

He has gone through quite a few secretaries in his time as they don't seem to last very long. The only person that can seem to stand him for long periods is his cousin.

Family: Both of Alex's parents are deceased, his only living relative is his cousin. He works with his cousin on a daily basis. Hometown: Marvel City Biography: Alex's mother (Victoria Knight) passed away when he was at a young age, leaving his father (Jonathan Knight) to raise him. His cousin (Katherine Knight) came under the care of Jonathan, when her parent's died from a car accident.
Jonathan had a hard time raising both kids on his own but he was determinded raise them. Even though they are cousins, Alex and Kat grew up with a sibling like relationship. At an early age it was obvious to everyone that Alex took after his father with his love for building things and taking them apart. Growing up there was a lot of tension between the kids because Alex had so much in common with his dad, causing him to develop a deep bond with his father. Kat had grown up with a deep jealousy towards Alex because of this, sparking many fights between the two.
Through their teen years, Alex grew much closer to Kat. Even though he was the older one, she was obviously the more mature of the two. During those years, Alex built his first artificial intelligence , dubbing him the mark I prototype or as Kat named him: Malik.
Heading off to different Universities, the two stayed in contact the entire time by phone and e-mail. Alex continued his work on Malik throughout the years, improving him as he went. After finishing University, Alex became obsessed with his work, forcing his father to threaten to cut him off if he didn't take a break and reevaluate his life. Deciding to try his hand at something different, Alex became a Pokemon Trainer in the Sinnoh region, where he discovered his love for Steel Pokemon.
Coming back home after five years, Alex had learned a lot while traveling with his Pokemon. Alex began working for his father again at Knight Industries, the company his had father started when he was younger. Alex had found a perfect balance between work and raising his Pokemon over the years, leading to Alex and his father wanting to build an amusment park for both Pokemon and humans.
Unfortunately, Alex lost his father a year into their project before he could see the competion of Adventure Land. Inheriting Knight Industries, Alex promoted his cousin to position of Ceo of Knight Industries, leaving Katherine to deal with the day to day stuff of the company. Having managed to progress even further with Malik, Alex built him into the base of Adventure Land, giving Malik remote control of the entire park. Alex spends his time between his gym leader duties and finishing Adventure Land.
Staring at the screens in front of him, Alex watched on the monitors as his opponent made his way up the elevators. Taking a slow drag from his cigarette, Alex exhaled the smoke as his next challenger arrived at the top of his battle platform. "Welcome to my gym! My name is Alex and I'll be your opponent today. Before we start, I'll let you know right now, my gym has some special rules to decide how our match will go. Malik if you will." Taking another drag from his cigarette, Alex waited for his AI to begin the roulette.
"Yes, sir! Starting the roulette!" Alex waited patiently for the roulette to stop spinning before speaking again. "Depending on what number it lands on, that is how the conditions for the battle are decided:
1: Will be a 1 vs 1 battle, first to knock out the opponents Pokemon wins the match.
2: Will be a 2 vs 2 battle, first to knock out both Pokemon wins the match.
3: Standard 3 on 3 battle with no physical attacks allowed.
4: Standard 3 on 3 battle with no special attacks allowed.
5: Standard 3 on 3 battle with the weather condition Sunny Day in effect
6: Standard 3 on 3 battle with the weather condition Hail in effect.
7: Standard 3 on 3 battle with the weather condition Rain Day in effect.
8: Standard 3 on 3 battle with the weather condition Sandstorm in effect."
Alex tried to hold back a groan as the roulette landed on the number 5, signaling that the match will be fought during Sunny Day. "Well seems like this battle will be in your favor since my Steel Pokemon will have the disadvantage. As gym leader I'll send out my Pokemon first, so you can choose from there who you want to use. Go Bronzor! Having sent out his first Pokemon, Alex waited for his opponent to send out his Pokemon so they could start the battle.
Laram watched in silence as the gym leader explained the rules of his gym. Laram wasn't much for games when it came to battling, but who was he to tell Alex how to run his gym? As the roulette stopped on five, Laram counted his stars lucky that day.Sunny day does work in my favor. I'll have to switch my team up, but I think it'll be the best in the end. Sorry Cubone. But still, I've learned not to underestimate these people.Laram saw the gym leader throw out a Bronzor. It looked strange to the trainer, but there was something about it that was unsettling. It didn't look like much of a threat, which let Laram know that it was strong. After all, it was raised by a gym leader. Laram pulled out his pokedex and scanned it. After a second, the information came on the screen. Laram gave an apologetic face to the leader and read everything he could quickly.
No wonder I got a weird vibe, this thing is part psychic. Not to mention that ability. This is going to be tricky, but I don't have much choice. I'm going to have to do something predictable. "Let's do this Firnen."Laram released his Charmander on the field with a toss of the newt's pokeball. Laram's Charmander had problems controlling his rage while under the influence of blaze, but he was strong. He was the perfect first choice for this battle. Firnen glared at his opponent and roared his challenge to the floating steel pokemon."Let's not waste any time, Firnen use Fire Spin."Firnen roared again and released a jet of fire from his maw. It was bigger than usual due to Sunny Day. The fierce flames began to circle as they raced towards Bronzor. Laram was hoping to keep his opponent in one place to make an easier target. Even though Bronzor took less damage from fire because of his ability, Laram knew that Sunny Day would even the playing field.Let's do this.
Reaching into his jacket pocket for his shades, Alex placed them on his face with his free hand while his challenger checked out his Bronzor with his pokedex. Taking a long drag, Alex watched as Laram sent out a Charmander. It seemed like his opponent was planning on taking full advantage of Sunny Day, wasting no time in ordering Charmander to use Fire Spin. "Let's work on redirecting that back at him. Bronzor, use Confusion!" The bronze Pokemon began glowing light blue as it was enveloped in psychic energy before forcing the spiral of flames to change direction towards Charmander in a single stream of fire.
'That should keep him occupied for the time being while we prepare for our next move.' Taking a drag of his cigarette, Alex ordered his Pokemon to use it's next attack. "With that out of the way, lets prepare for our next attack. Bronzor, you know what to do!" Bronzor's eyes began glowing blue as it channeled the psychic energy needed for the attack. Watching as nothing happened, Alex smirked around the cigarette in his mouth. 'It's always good to have an ace up your sleeve. Alex was content, puffing on his cigarette, waiting to see how Laram would respond.
With Firnen's attack coming back at him, Laram didn't have much time to think up a strategy."Firnen, dodge it."The fire salamander was more than happy to oblige. Jumping to the side of the attack, the Charmander barely managed to escape his own flames. Laram had to think quickly. If everything he threw at this Pokemon was just coming back at him, Firnen would have a very tough time handling his opponent. Laram didn't like it, but he had to switch Pokemon."Firnen, return. You'll get your chance later."Laram cursed under his breath. He didn't wish to show so much of his team at the beginning of the fight, but he didn't have many options. The gym leader had chosen well."You're up Slugma."The trainer tossed another pokeball forward and released his Slugma onto the field.
Slugma should be more than a match for her opponent, but Laram was not going to underestimate Alex or his Bronzor. He had already given them enough of a breather, and it was time to go on the offensive."Slugma use Flame Burst."Slugma released a massive stream of fire into the air above her. The flames built until a very large fireball formed in the sky. The fireball exploded and sent numerous streaks of fire towards Bronzor, and all around it. Laram wasn't aiming for Bronzor per se, but the area around it. He wanted to constrict its' movement for his next attack."Slugma, get in there and use yawn."Slugma slithered through the flames and came much closer to her opponent. She then straightened herself up and opened her mouth as far as she could. Which, considering she was made of lava, was pretty large. Bits of smoke wafted from her mouth as she let loose a loud yawn in her opponent's face.Let's see how he deals with that.
Calmly taking the situation in, Alex was more than content to puff on his cigarette while Laram's Charmander dodged the Fire Spin. Watching as Laram swapped Pokémon, Alex would admit that he was a little surprised by the move. 'Great, yet another fire Pokémon. Looks like this kid did his homework.' Letting out a sigh, Alex prepared to defend against Laram's next move. 'That's two Pokémon of his that I know he's using. Unfortunately both of them are super effective against my entire team. Lets hope that his last Pokémon isn't another bloody fire Pokémon.'
Laram wasted no time in ordering his Pokémon to attack, causing Alex to react quickly with his own orders. "Bronzor, hurry and try to dodge it!" Alex could only watch as Bronzor tried its best to dodge the pillars of flames coming towards it. Bronzor managed to dodge two pillars before getting hit by a third.'I see what he's up to there.' Slightly red and smoking from the intense heat, Bronzor struggled to stay afloat in the air."Bronzor, use Safeguard!" Slowly regaining its bearing, Bronzor's body began glowing brightly as it became surrounded by a green barrier. Alex watched as Slugma's Yawn attack harmlessly popped against Safeguard before letting out a breath in relief.
"Bronzor! It's do or die now, you only got enough left in the tank for one more move. So let's make the most of it and use Heavy Slam!" Nodding in agreement, Bronzor began glowing bright yellow as it dropped towards Slugma. 'Hit or miss Bronzor won't last much longer, but on the bright side if this misses Future Sight probably won't.' Letting out puffs of smoke, all Alex could do was wait as he watched Bronzor fall.
Laram was waiting for the gym leader to attack Slugma physically. In truth, Bronzor was the trainer's worst nightmare because of its' psychic abilities. But now was the time for Slugma to finish off her opponent."Slugma, use Acid Armor and latch on to Bronzor."As the Bronzor descended upon Slugma, her body began to liquefy and become fluid. As Bronzor smashed into the fire slug, it hurt, but there was far less damage than there would have been. In Slugma's liquid state, physical attacks were almost useless. But Laram wasn't naive enough to believe that his Pokemon wasn't going to take damage. He looked up in the sky and watched a white bolt of lightning bearing down on his Pokemon. He knew something was wrong when he witnessed Bronzor's eyes glow blue. When he saw it, he recognized the move from his pokedex. It was future sight. He figured that if he was going to have to take an attack, he might as well make his opponent feel the pain too. That's why he wanted Slugma to latch on to Bronzor. Of course, his Pokemon was made of lava, so just touching her would hurt immensely. But Laram kept on his toes. Alex didn't become a gym leader because he was a pushover. Laram had no doubt the gym leader had more tricks up his sleeve.
Alex was not surprised by the move that Laram pulled. It was quite brilliant if he did say so himself. But that was neither here nor there. all he had to do now was focus on finishing off the Slugma. With both Heavy Slam and Future Sight activating Slugma's weak armor ability, Alex just needed one more little push to do it in. Giving his thanks to Bronzor as he recalled it, Alex replaced the tiny bell Pokémon with Klink. "Lets start by getting rid of the sun for a few turns. Klink, use Sandstorm!"
The gear Pokémon began grinding against each other as they started kicking up a sandstorm. The battlefield was quickly covered with a wall of sand, making it difficult to see. 'Well this should turn the tide towards us for a few turns at least.' Hoping to finish off Slugma, Alex yelled through the sandstorm, hoping Klink heard him. "KLINK, USE CHARGE BEAM!" Hearing its trainer yell out orders, Klink was quick to enact them. The gear Pokémon began surrounding itself with electrical energy before releasing it in a bolt of energy towards Slugma. Pulling his jacket over his mouth, Alex struggled to make out the shape of his opponent through the sand. 'Hopefully the Charge Beam will hit and be the end of Slugma.'
