Flash Fire - Activates when user is hit by a damaging Fire-type move (including Fire-type Hidden Power). Once activated, user’s Fire-type moves deal 1.5 times damage. While this ability is in effect, this Pokémon is immune to damage from Fire-type attacks and Fire-type Hidden Power (accuracy and effect from these moves are ignored). For Fire-type Pokémon with this ability, Will-O-Wisp activates this ability without having an effect. If a non-Fire-type Pokémon has this ability, Will-O-Wisp will activate the ability and will have an effect.
-Savio absorbs most flames that come at him. When attacked, he will receive damage, but overall it just makes him more powerful if you do. As such, he is kinda a pyromaniac.

♦ ATTACKS:
Inferno - The user attacks by engulfing the target in an intense fire. It leaves the target with a burn.
-Plain and simple, he will set you on fire if he is pushed. Usually he resorts to less direct tactics such as poisonous, experimental elixirs, but if he is dragged into a conflict he usually starts off with this in order to burn the victim. More times than not he will try to secure the opponent with his tails and let the fire burn from the tails to ensure burns that will only get worse as the battle continues and the other is forced to fight (Unless, of course they have a skill/ability/item/type immunity to nullify it).

Hex - This relentless attack does massive damage to a target affected by status problems.
-A ghost move that he delights in and the primary reason why he immediately seeks to burn you. When the target has a status ailment, Hex's power doubles. Valko's theory is that there is something about the weakening of the opponent that makes causes their will to weaken and make them an easier target for the attack. When using this move, Savio uses his own spiritual energy to attack the other's own energy.

Gained at level 5: Dark Pulse The user releases a horrible aura imbued with dark thoughts. It may also make the target flinch.
-Let me put it this way: Savio's mind is hell as it is. Imagine his immense, twisted delight, when he discovers he can unleash this in the form of a wave of darkness. Usually he mostly uses it to release a lot of stress, or to occasionally make Val trip for his own amusement. In battle, however, he doesn't use it as much, unless the target is a fire type and he thinks it would do more damage or if he uses it in hopes to trip up the opponent long enough to get in a quick second attack or avoid getting hit.

Gained at Level 10: Overheat - The user attacks the foe at full power. The attack’s recoil sharply reduces the user’s Sp. Atk stat.
-When he feels threatened and has nowhere to run, he will let out the full extent of his wrath and usually ends up putting the rest of the place up in flames. He uses it sparingly, though, as it leaves him very weak afterward.
Gained at Level 15: Flamethrower - The target is scorched with an intense blast of fire. It may also leave the target with a burn. (10% chance)
-Savio likes to burn things. It's a creepy infatuation, but there you are. As a fire-type he is naturally gifted with flame attacks and has a particular love for this attack.
Gained at Level 20: Attract -If it is the opposite gender of the user 'If the user swings that way', the target becomes infatuated and less likely to attack. (50% chance unlikely to attack)
-So he's not the sexiest man alive, but he is still a stone cold fox when he wants to be. He releases a feint hormone in the air and may or may not do something to bring out some of his physical appeal like the prideful git he is. So if your character is attracted to men (because, let's face it, if it works on girls why not gay or bi men?), he may very well use this to trip you up. Plus I couldn't pass up that hilarious scenario.
Gained at Level 25: Calm Mind - The user quietly focuses its mind and calms its spirit to raise its Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats.
-Able to keep a cool head in battle, he sometimes will use this move to not only protect himself from non-physical attacks, but to also pack more of a punch in a fight.

♦ PERSONALITY
Savio is complex and yet simple. He is simple in the fact that he can be summed up in very few words: Prideful, Psychotic, and Apathetic. He is complex in that there is a lot more to it than what people see on the outside. Generally, in public, Savio is a laid back, polite individual who speaks with a warm tone and has been known to flirt with both men and women. He is admittedly vain, going into long-winded explanations and speeches about his work, or at least what he can allow himself to indulge. Behind closed doors, with those he cares about, he can sometimes be cold and condescending, usually going after his own gain, though reluctantly loyal to those he's managed to grow attach to, although he often denies it even to himself. He can be caring and a gentleman, but he has been known to snap and be secretive. In the darkness of the alleys, Savio is a very dark, threatening, sadistic individual who is absolutely obsessed with expanding his knowledge in science and immortality. There is a reason he doesn't settle down: if you ask him to choose between you and his research, he may be reluctant, but there is a 99.9% chance he will personally escort you to the door. Through his years he has abducted, maimed, and slaughtered many for the simple pursuit of discovery. There is a lot underlying his obsessive and peculiar behavior that only those truly close to him can even begin to understand.

♦ HISTORY
Savio is actually not his real name. He was born as 'Rafaelle Salvagio' in a city that spoke a dialect strikingly similar to our Italian, now destroyed, and was the son of nobility. Even at his young age, he always loved to toy with things and was never one to just do things the conventional way. He originally was trying to pursue a life of a scientist, however the city went into civil war and he ended up a slave. This did not stop his curiosity, though. He was never treated well by his masters and it did not take long for Rafaelle to start learning harsh lessons in his young age, along with a few lessons he taught himself. Soon, his masters went from being his rulers, to the young man's guinea pigs. Sneaking into the library, he would read the most interesting subjects and would perform subtle experiments with his masters as his test subjects. After a while they were merely there for financial security, appearances, and for his practices. This ceased when, finally, one of the experiments resulted in a rather unfortunate death of the entire household, his masters being too elderly to withstand Rafaelle's tests. He could have taken the money, but to him it meant nothing and he did not need anyone to come looking for a thief. Instead, he burned the home, watching it burn from the inside out until it started to collapse. From there, he was faced with a grim realization. By now he was already a young man. Ninetales were species notorious for living longer lives, but sooner or later he would age just as those useless creatures had. So many things might be left undiscovered or ignored and there was so much potential and so much he could do, bu such a limited time! It was from here he pursued a folklore legend about his kind, particularly pertaining to the power stored inside his tails and how it was to them they owed their longer lives. This grew into a distorted obsession for a number of years before he finally reached success by a rather peculiar twist of fate. He'd gotten into a rather nasty battle with a local military squad and one of the members attacks ended up costing him his leg. After treatment, he originally had a standard robotic replacement, but he missed the feeling of ...well ...feeling. This lead to studying the creation of nerve cells and, going on a pursuit in the direction of science and alchemy, he actually stumbled across the solution to creating tissues and managed to recreate his entire leg from his own DNA. Since then, just about every bit of him has been remade at one point or another. Of course, he had to find a way around the decay of organs which lead to a discovery of a serum that he still uses today. Unfortunately, it requires the consumption of blood, the serum being able to convert the biological properties necessary to keep his organs rejuvenating just enough to keep them age healthy. This does not mean, however, that he is immortal. Without his proper consumption of biological material his organs start aging again and in a fight he is just as vulnerable as anyone else, if not more so due to his thin stature. With his secrets in hand, he has taken to selling off some of his inventions, as well as exotic items he finds in his travels, though he'd never let anyone discover his true age or who he really is. He took the name of Savio Caruso, which literally translated means 'clever shop boy' and has been using his skills for survival and continuing discoveries, experiments, and inventions. He still speaks in his native language from time to time and does his best to fit in and keep others at bay. His travels through the years to come are still filled with mystery and no one but himself has full knowledge of what he has done. Not too long ago, though, he discovered an arcanine in his travels, left for dead outside this city's walls and rescued him. He treated his wounds and even offered him a violin with which he could not only use to exercise his brain, but so he might also entertain Savio. This man was Valko, who would later become a dear friend and brother-like figure. When he returned to the city, the two took up residence together in an abandoned apartment in the neutral district. During the tournament, Savio's business was booming, but Valko's subsequent imprisonment sent the man into an unexpected depression and guilt for being responsible. He was then approached by a stranger (This section will remain secret until the animation/comic is released regarding my characters' job advancements). Now, being the man housing Valko in his new reputation, the shop is now renovated and doing better than ever. He sometimes longs for a life as a scientist, but as his district does not house anything fitting to his practices, he will need to keep his work hidden deep in the alleys where no Lumerian 'dog' can come sniffing to discover his secrets. Besides, he likes the attention.

♦ ADDITIONAL INFO
-He does speak Italian every now and again. Don't like it? He doesn't care.
-Savio will never introduce himself as 'Rafaelle'. As far as he is concerned, Rafaelle is only the man he used to be.
-When asked, he will claim to be only 27. That was when he ceased aging, after all.
-He doesn't necessarily have to consume blood all the time and actually only needs a good feeding perhaps once a month and it doesn't necessarily have to be blood, so long as it is another gijinka's biological tissue. He just prefers the former due to the fact it is easier to consume for him and its easier to obtain (Val does have to sleep at some point, after all.)
-He has a creepy hobby of collecting 'souvenirs' of his victims, be them previous test subjects or defeated enemies in combat. Val has never questioned where he gets his various charms and accessories that he wears (which he switches it up every day). Most of them are covered up or stashed away, though.
-The tattoos on his body only appear on certain parts and are actually surgical instructions, their designs originating from his native homeland. If the tattoos have disappeared, it is likely he has replaced the limb, same as if new tattoos of similar design appear.
-His shop is called 'Desert Fox Exotics' and he usually acts as a seller of various items from either his own creation, things he might have brought from his travels to and fro from the outside the city, and pawned items. Haggling with him is absolutely useless unless you have something of great interest that might be unique enough to get him to trade. He specializes in elixirs, however, which can range from temporary battle enhancers (Kind of like X Attack like items, but some of his concoctions are specified for certain things like temporarily raising one's water powers for x amount of turns. None of his elixirs, at least none he sells anyway, are permanent)
-He does sell accessories, but most of them are pawned or for show. He sometimes makes an accessory that might act like a held item to sell (Very rarely, though), but he does not simply hand these out and I will likely be asking the commanders before Savio sells this. Keep in mind : These will be sold at very high prices so if your character is poor, I doubt they'll get it unless they steal it, which is not a good idea.
-He sometimes will give people an item in very rare cases, but only under certain conditions. Sometimes, it is just about being his ever quirky self and he thinks the person would appreciate it more than anyone else who'd buy it. Other times, it is simply out of a strange moment of kindness, and others it would do well to be careful. He is mad and sometimes, if you've angered him or he can't find any other to experiment with, he might just be offering you something with which to test his newest hypothesis.
-For anyone who might ever wonder about this madman's 'tastes', like Val he is bi and like Val he isn't one to open up very easy when it comes to people wanting to get to know him that well. However, unlike Val, he has no qualms about spending a night elsewhere with no strings attached.
- For those who wonder about his tails, he uses a cloaking device on his cuffs to hide them in public as they tend to draw too much attention for his liking and they can be distracting for people.
-The only known way to make him blush without him wanting to kill you is by stroking his ears or tails. Again, though, if you pull one of them on purpose and you've already been warned it might take him a couple more centuries before he stops loathing you.
-Savio always keeps the firestone that evolved him on his person as a souvenir of his past as a slave. It was given to him by his former master.
