All the comics are linked together at the bottom of the artist comments. They are also arranged in order in the “End Run” folder in my gallery, so you can just click the first image and tap the right arrow key. If you’re a new reader who just happened upon this app, I’d go through the comic first. Otherwise, spoilers below (and above)!

You can also read Xander's side of the story by visiting Ra's gallery here: [link]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Amelia "Nathan" Ketner Kalili
Age: 33
Height:  5’6’’
Weight: 142 lb.
Hometown/Region: Cinnabar Island| Kanto
Occupation: Former Air Force Captain, now full-time hobo
Extra items: Pineapple ukulele, wool blanket (given by Perry), her old machete (don’t worry, she hasn’t killed anyone with it since the war ended), along with other clothes and items for traveling on the road

Personality:
Amelia is a bright and happy woman. She has regained her love for laughing and running around. Her childhood was spent exploring Cinnabar Island, and with the end of the war, she’s now exploring the rest of the world. She’s determined not to let her past hamper her new experiences.

Despite her friendly demeanor, it’s difficult to earn Amelia’s trust. She prefers to be alone or with Xander and the pokémon. Large crowds and new people can cause her to panic. Loud noises and too many stimuli shut her down or make her lash out. Only those close to Amelia can really calm her down.

Amelia and Xander travel from place to place, living life on the road. Sometimes they’ll settle in one area for a while, sometimes they won’t. Even though they're no longer a couple, their shared history has brought them close together. Amelia earns money through a combination of odd jobs, pokémon battling, and entertaining people on the street. Often her outfits are masculine enough that she is mistaken for a man. It doesn’t bother her. Sometimes she will even introduce herself as “Nathan.” Amelia knows who she is, and that’s all that matters.


Backstory:
Amelia comes from a large family. Her parents had 3 daughters and 5 sons, many of whom are now grown up and having children of their own. Amelia was supposed to be the last child, but she ended up as a packed deal with her twin brother, Nathan.

At the age of 28, just as the war began, Nathan enlisted in the air force with the intention of making a name for himself. However, he underestimated the trials he’d face, and quickly deserted after a bloody ambush by Johto. He sent a letter to Amelia explaining the situation and that he was leaving for Sinnoh. Amelia, not wanting to lose her brother forever, took his place in the air force (despite his protests). For years, Amelia operated under the guise of Nathan Kalili.

She served in the 4th Fighter Squadron Uila’ula, and adopted all her squad members as a second family. At the Battle of Undella Bay, Amelia was severely traumatized by the death of a Johto pilot, who had crashed into her propeller after escaping his own burning plane. Later, at the Battle of Ecruteak, Uila’ula defected to the Rogues (save for Xander Selié, who she convinced to stay). The bloody deaths coupled with the loss of her air force family (especially Theodore “Teddy” Partridge, who formed a romantic relationship with her), caused Amelia to plummet into depression. She stopped eating and taking care of herself, depending on Xander to keep her alive and happy.

During the prison break, Blackie tried to convince Amelia to let go of her emotions towards her squad, the Johto pilot, and Nathan, which she felt were chaining her trainer to misery. The attempt backfired and left Amelia with an intense hatred of all who abandoned her. This even caused her to attack former Uila’ula member Miguel Parsnip.

Her hatred only continued to grow from there. Soon all humans, regardless of affiliation, were little more than monsters waiting to hurt Amelia. This caused her to become a ruthless killer during her mission at Mt. Silver, during which she abandoned her new squad and felt no remorse when decimating Johto soldiers. The only one she trusted was Xander. He was the only one she willingly confessed her true identity to. That trust then developed into something much more. On New Year’s Day, Amelia confessed her love to Xander and the two began to date.

Amelia then set out to capture the legendary pokémon Ho-Oh. Her search led her to Lake Verity. Sure enough, she encountered Ho-Oh, but also found Teddy, who was searching for Mesprite (which was rumored to live in the lake). The two fought, and Amelia fatally wounded Teddy. Ho-Oh was confused by a psybeam attack, and then proceeded to destroy the cave they were in. In his final moments, Teddy saved Amelia’s life, causing her to realize that she was the true monster all this time. Ho-Oh willingly allowed itself to be captured.

Amelia’s dratini (Moana) and venomoth (Akiko) were wounded beyond help. After they were euthanized, Amelia released her remaining pokémon (Falcor, Blackie, and Willow). Only Willow chose to stay with her trainer.

Following the battle, Amelia overheard Xander talking about his one night stand with Miguel, destroying the only positive thing left in her life. She immediately broke up with him and developed an intense hatred towards him. Without any reason to care, hating both herself and the world around her, and unable to kill herself, Amelia accepted the war as the only reason she had left to live and resolved to continue fighting.

Amelia captained a squad at the Bombing of Olivine (with Xander serving as her first lieutenant). Her squad was killed off by a perish song attack, leaving only Ho-Oh to finish the fight. Ho-Oh, the loving and passive creature that it is, refused to take part in the battle. Blackie then appeared and convinced legendary bird to destroy the port, stating that inaction would prolong death and suffering, and promising a brighter future if this war could end. The two worked to destroy the military bases at Olivine while avoiding killing any more humans or pokémon.

Meanwhile, Amelia and Xander (the only two left), were hounded by Johto planes. They escaped into a nightshade created by Willow. However, Xander was injured during the chase, and jumped out of his plane. A panicked Amelia followed after him. As Amelia fell, Willow entered Amelia’s mind, where a strange creature berated her for jumping. Amelia argued, saying that Xander deserved better than to die like this, and that everyone is more than the demons she portrayed them as. She forgives everyone for their actions, and as a result, rids herself of her own demon. It is then revealed that the creature talking to her was the spirit of the Johto pilot from Undella. He tells her that he forgives her for what she did to him, and that she does not need to feel guilty.

Back in the real world, Amelia caught up to Xander, and the two embraced and fell together. Falcor then came to their rescue, evolving into a staraptor and carrying them out of the nightshade.

With its major port destroyed, Johto surrendered and Kanto celebrated. Xander was transferred to a hospital in Celadon to fix his injuries. Amelia picked him up, and the two reconciled. Without any clear idea of what to do with their lives, they decide to travel the regions together.

Amelia met up with Nathan in Sinnoh, who then returned to Cinnabar to begin his life anew.


Falcor | Staraptor | Lax Nature | Keen Eye | Female

Falcor (or Fally) was originally Nathan’s starter before Amelia took over. When she was just a starly, she was captured and trained to fight in the war. Her capturers pushed her to her limit, but through her own determination, she became strong enough to be shipped off to the Kanto camps.

Falcor is an intelligent bird. In her own way she recognized that Amelia was going through a situation similar to her capture. She resolved to help Amelia in any way she could, and adopted the woman as her emotionally unstable sister in arms. Throughout her service, Falcor was constantly neglected and hurt by Amelia. However, she held fast to her determination and saved her trainer (physically and emotionally) multiple times.

Now that the war is over, the two are best friends. Falcor still helps Amelia by transporting her and Xander across regions, and sometimes catches food for them. Amelia repays Falcor with hugs and scratchies.

 

Blackie| Sigilyph | Modest Nature | Magic Guard | Female

Blackie is an old creature who guarded the ruins of Relic Castle for as long as she can remember. She grew up in the Desert Resort, traversing the same route for years on end, protecting the ruins with her kin. While she was alone in the sands, she was plucked by the Kanto military and taken far away from her kind and her ruins. With everything she held dear suddenly torn away from her, Blackie initially lashed out against her trainer, threatening to kill her. Amelia was only saved by Falcor’s intervention.

Blackie was an invaluable asset to Amelia’s team, even if Amelia herself didn’t know it. She barred Amelia’s mind from the prodding of other psychic pokémon, and even altered the memories of medics and commanders to protect Amelia’s secret.

Alina, Xander’s gothita, looked to Blackie as her mother. The two spent a lot of time together. Blackie taught the young psychic how to hone her skills and be strong, and also partook in tea parties and story time with her little friend. Alina’s death hit her hard, but Blackie has learned from Amelia that it is best not to live in the past.

She could return to the Desert Resort any time she wished, but Blackie opted to travel with Amelia and Xander, seeing the world beyond the sand borders. Blackie knows she will outlive her friends, and will eventually return to her clan. Once there, she will share her memories with the sigilyphs. The lives of her friends will become part of the collective thoughts of her clan, which will be passed down from generation to generation.

Alive in memory, long after gravestones turn to dust.

*HEAVY BREATHING* GOODS THINGS ARE HAPPENING TODAY! First the Hoenn remakes confirmed and now you're completing the last chapter of Amelia's story?!?! I AM SO EXCITED I THINK I'M GOING TO EXPLODE HNNNR- wait... but if I do then I won't be able to finish the story *holds everything back in*
But seriously oh my god I'm really excited for this- I was so disappointed you didn't make the finals, one- because Amelia's story was incredibly emotionally involved, two, you have such amazing art (wow; many art, so colour, very style, much tears) and thirdly because I was so involved with your story I was torn thinking it was never going to be completed... EXCEPT FOR NOW! 
Good luck with all your studies, I'm all hyped for your finalie so until then I'll be waiting in the shadows  *walks backwards into the darkness*

Haha! I'm really glad that you're still excited to read Amelia's story after months of inactivity on it. I always had the intention of finishing it, but I needed a break from it during the summer, and was too busy with classes once they started up in August. I have a good 12 pages in my sta.sh right now, and post updates on my tumblr sometimes. AND STILL SO FAR TO GO ADFHJGFKJHKDGFL

I can't promise the art will be to the same standards you're probably used to, but at least the story will be done! Thanks a bunch for being patient with me and reading my silly pokemon comic. You're comments were a joy to read every time I updated ;u;

Because I spent several months of my life churning out a comic that was one round away from completion. If I got kicked in R2, I probably wouldn't have bothered. But Amelia's story was cut at R6. There's not much of it left, so I might as well finish what I started.
I have everything all sketched out and squared away. It's just finding the time to ink and color things.

I don't RP ER so much anymore. Amelia's kind of stuck in one spot until the next round gets posted, so the only thing you'd get from an RP would be either her verbally abusing you or being indifferent to your presence. She's not very easy to RP right now, so I've essentially abandoned her RP blog :"D

I might set up an RP blog for Brynn once RoK opens up.

Yeesss there is~ Me and Ra are trying to finish up our stories, so those'll be completed hopefully in the near future. I think there are a few other people like Elgie trying to get their final rounds up.

ER is still very much a thing, it's just happening very very slowly. As I said in the comments, I already have a handful of comics in my sta.sh... and several more to draw |D
