|The Sea Captain Mayor Gym Leader|
Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab, placeholder image
Captain Richard Mobius is Gym Leader and Mayor of Gondolia. He specializes in Water-type Pokemon, and awards the Sea Badge to those who defeat him. He commands his own vessel, the Nautilus.
The Pokémon in his Lv.3 team are different individuals from those in his Lv.1 and Lv.2 teams.
Orphaned at a young age; Richard joined the crew of a whaling vessel. Upon this vessel he stayed for many years, learning the trade, and training Pokemon. He recieved a Pokemon of his very own, a Oshawott, from the vessel's captain on his 13th birthday. This Oshawott, Starbuck, became Richard's constant companion.
One night, when Richard was 19, the crew of Richard's ship caught sight of a humongous shiny Wailord. Eager for such a catch, the ship's crew engaged the Wailord. Horribly outclassed, the ship was torn apart by the raging Pokemon. This incident cost most of the crew their lives, and Richard his leg. He had barely survived, and had been saved by Starbuck, who evolved to Samurott to save his life. He used the funds he had saved over the years to purchase a small boat, then repair his leg, in that order. He hunted smaller game at first, unable to hunt Wailord and other large sea Pokemon. He became very successful, and today owns the largest vessel in Gondolia's port. By some other stroke of luck, He also became the town's Mayor, with his strength of will and determination being admired by the townsfolk.
To this day, he hunts for the shiny Wailord that killed his shipmates. He is able to balance all of his duties and show up wherever he needs to be, because he's just that awesome.
Richard Mobius looks like a tried-and-true sailor; with long black hair, a full beard, and his Crawdaunt-shell peg-leg.
His name is based upon the classic book, Moby Dick.
As a Gym Leader and an NPC character, he can be used freely; however, it is important to closely follow his character profile, unless of course it's something that's meant to be silly and out of character.
