Beldum: Steel / Psychic Type
Beldum floated low to the ground behind a stack of boxes as the guards ran past him. He had been sloppy, but with a bit of luck, he would be able to pull himself out of this. He looked down at the metal necklace that was stuck tightly to him. He didn't want to steal it from the shop owner, but she didn't want to sell it, and he needed it. He would return it to her, once he was done with it. Well… that is if it was still in one piece by the end of it.
Unlike most other Pokemon, Beldum have a metallic liquid flowing through them in place of blood. This quicksilver-like fluid has an electromagnetic pull that they can control. The magnetic field also allows them to communicate with other beldum without words. They simply have to be near the other Beldum and they can feel each other's thoughts. A number of Beldum use this ability to move in tandem with one another when attacking or performing. This electromagnetic fluid also allows them to sense when magnetic materials are nearby making them great at finding metal veins in mines.
The magnetic field that flows around Beldum repulses the one that naturally emanates from the Earth, allowing them to float off the ground and move. They can control the intensity of the repulsion allowing them to move backwards and forwards with ease, however they can only float a few feet off the ground at maximum repulsion. On occasion some Beldum have even been known to be able to use their magnetism to pull foes closer to them to attack. More often though they will use this power to pull magnetic materials closer to them because they are too lazy to get up. When sleeping, they use their single claw to hold onto rocks or trees preventing them from floating away as they dream.
Beldum can often be found in highly magnetic areas. These locations allow them to easily move around to wherever they need to be. They will build homes that use magnetic fields to remain suspended in the air, connected to each other by only thin bridges to keep them safe from intruders. When sleeping with others, some Beldum will hold their claws together to make sure they stay near one another as they rest.
Allignment: Many creatures consider Beldum to be ‘cold’ and incapable of emotions or empathy, however this is not true. They simply do not express or feel things the same way most other creatures do. They will often react the most logical way giving a situation rather than allow their emotions to take over. They are unafraid to tell others what they think is the best course of action even if it would offend them.

The Beldum line live to be about 300 years old. They reach maturity around 42 years and are considered to be adults at 48. As they get older the magnetic pull that their body naturally creates gets weaker. Some Beldum that have lived to be 320 years old have a magnetic field that is so weak that they can’t even float any more.
