Before the apocalypse
Dakota was born as an only child with two loving parents who treated him like any other child. Later in his early childhood, he was once teased in school about looking like a girl and grew very upset. He told his parents, who eventually grew overprotective of him after that incident and increasingly began to pamper him since he was so sensitive.
He developed an ego and self-confidence, for with his parents always backing him up he could do almost anything and get away with it. Ironically, he grew a liking to pretending he was a girl just to mess around with his classmates who didn’t know he was actually male. Though he never stated his real gender, he made to be careful that no one would find out and tell on him. Despite the fact that he liked messing around with the boys, he was actually completely uninterested in any sort of real love between him and someone else.
Near the end of elementary, he ended up getting associated with a transfer student, a Reuniclus named Kyle. Apparently, this Pokemon wore ‘girly’ clothes and even wore a ponytail despite having short hair. Unlike Dakota, he actually hated being called a girl or anything like that. When they met, Dakota could tell that Kyle had a crush on him. Though this has happened in the past, no one was as attached as Kyle. Either way, Dakota played along in this game.
Even though Dakota was planning to ditch Kyle quickly, he ended up becoming friends with him after learning more about him. Because of this Reuniclus, he actually had more sympathy and understanding for others. The only thing was that he knew Kyle was going to ask to go out with him sooner or later, and he did not want to date another boy.
But as time flew by and they entered high school together, it seemed like Kyle was going to settle on being friends and nothing else. In the summer after their first year of high school, Dakota was surprised to find that Kyle actually asked him out.
Dakota revealed that he was just a fraud, and wasn’t actually a girl. Kyle simply ran away after hearing that, and Dakota felt horrible, considering that he just betrayed his best friend. But the next day, Kyle came back to him and apologized for running away, and that they could still be friends. Dakota was unbelievably relieved and delighted, and so the two continued to be friends. Never again did Dakota try to mess around with boys who seriously had a crush on him, but he still found it hilarious to pull his girl tricks on some of them.
In his second year of high school, his parents found out about him posing to be a girl and were rather upset that he was doing it just for the hell of it. He was supposed to be a responsible teenager now that he was in high school, yet he was doing this. His parents requested for a transfer so he could start a new and fresh life at a different school while actually being a boy, but he managed to convince his parents otherwise. However, he felt angry that his parents attempted it and decided to be independent and stop relying on his parents.
The rest of high school continued without much drama. However, before his graduation, the zombie apocalypse happened. He and Dakota managed to stick together and fled from the school, and finding that their city was overrun with the undead, they left without much hope left for their families surviving since the city was totally ruined.
Though Dakota already had broken ties from his parents a long time ago, he was concerned for Kyle for he had always depended on his own parents. However, Kyle ended up getting very angry and hurt Dakota in the process. Dakota got angry as well and they fought. A horde of zombies separated them soon, and after regretting his decision and days of searching in vain, he gave up on reuniting with Kyle.
He traveled north, hoping that due to the weather conditions further up, zombies would be less common. A few weeks in, he met up with another group and stuck around with them solely so he could journey up north easier. Though he had decided to never mess around with others by pretending he was a girl, temptations came up and he enjoyed tricking the other members in the group. But he eventually came to the conclusion that they would find out and do something bad to him, so he left that group without forming any solid relationships.
This became a pattern, joining with a group only to leave less than a month later. When it neared winter, he gave up and continued north, avoiding any groups he made contact with. Soon, he came to another city that seemed rather stable. There were groups of survivors that had many members, duties, and more. But, he knew that if he joined either of these groups, his consequences of messing around with them were much more extreme. So he remained in the city, doing whatever he must to survive. And maybe find Kyle, if he could ever be alive.
Over time through the zombie apocalypse, he had changed. As of currently, he is a selfish person who just wants attention and to show off how good he is. He enjoys tricking and manipulating people to get what he wants, but only goes for the gullible and weak, avoiding the strong for he tries to be wary as to not get himself killed. In addition, he also prefers to be neat, organized, and strategic.
