An only child from a well to do family, Apolon never had many worries during the first twenty or so years of his life. If he wanted something, he received it and if there was a chore that needed to be done, hired help would do it. In theory such luxury would've brought the family a great amount of family time to spend with one another, but his father was too buried in his studies (he was a researcher and professor) to spend time with his son. Similarly, his mother was too preoccupied distracting herself from a loveless marriage to do more than superficially dote on her son with quick pats of the head and hollow "good jobs" whenever he did well in school. Thus, for the most part, it was up to Apolon to entertain himself and well...that quickly got boring. He sucked it up for the most part until his twentieth birthday when a fellow co-worker of his father's asked him what his plans were after college. Apolon was stumped. He had everything and nothing at the same time and so he honestly didn't know what he wanted. One thing was for sure however, he wasn't going to figure it out staying at home. Determined to find some sort of purpose in life, he packed his bags and left home without a word, effectively cutting himself off in the process.
By chance, Apolon found himself in Kalos City during his travels and decided to settle here...only to face a new problem: He didn't have much career experience. Not wanting to give up and go home so quickly, he decided to take the one job he qualified for immediately and now works as a street performer. Whenever there's a holiday or a large crowd in Kalos City, you'll find him there doing tricks and performances as a means of buying time before he finds a better job.

+Doing good performances
+Holidays and festivals

-Bad performance days
Frugal: He's recently acquired this trait due to being cut off. If he can save money he will do it even if it means living off of instant ramen and clipping coupons instead of reading couture magazines. He also has been known to stash food from events he performs at to reheat later.
Proud: Part of the reason why he's become so frugal actually. He is used to a certain standard of living and is unwilling to give it up if he can help it. Every bit he saves can be used to buy the latest style jacket or to see that performance that everyone is talking about. He also by extent thinks very highly of his appearance and will take a good long time to preen himself before going out. Excessively dirty tasks will not be taken kindly by him...he'll do it if he makes money from it, but he'll be mad at you the entire time.
Social: Apolon loves talking and loves getting to know people, not just for getting company but also because he's discovered that the better you know your audience the better you can perform and the better you're tipped. In his free time (provided he feels inclined) he likes to go to free parties and events around the city. He also enjoys going to well populated public places like libraries and museums to meet people.
Lazy: When he's not working or not interested in something, Apolon is lazy. He'll take a very long time to do a task he's not interested in and will often pick sleep over doing it. Thus, sometimes it'll take awhile before Apolon does mundane things like clean the apartment or run errands. The only exception is if he knows company is coming by. Surprise visits will be greeted with a dump of a room.
Kind: In spite of his negative and largely self-centered traits, Apolon does genuinely like people and likes to make people happy. He just doesn't know how to do that and make a living yet which makes him seem a little selfish. He will always remember to ask you how your day was, and he won't hold it against you for too long if you tip him badly. He just will assume you're having a bad day and will ask you about it next time.
-The earring was part of a matching set but he lost it traveling
-DO NOT TOUCH HIS STICK
-The valuables tin just holds money, a couple of matches, and some cigarettes
-I actually dislike Delphox ears so I modified them a bit and the earring is supposed to be the big poofy tuft of fur that always comes out of them
-I used this link
for pose reference but the art is all by me, Kiwi
