Murkrow: Dark / Flying Type
Murkow flew as fast as he could as arrows whizzed past him on all sides. His pursuers were almost upon him, but he was almost there. If he could lure them a few more feet up the path then they would be lost and unable to use the same path they took to chase him. He shook his head as thoughts of their remarks early threatened to climb their way into his head. These naive creatures had simply seen him and decided they would run him out of town, it just wasn’t fair, he had done nothing wrong. They had made their choice to try to harm him, now it was his turn to do the harming.
Many rumors and stories imply that Murkrow are to be feared as they bring misfortune to anyone they meet, however there is very little truth to these tales. These dark feathered birds are merely Pokemon who are nocturnal and enjoy playing pranks on those that are rude to them. Their favorite thing to do to those that attack or treat them poorly is to trick the creator into chasing them through long winding mountain paths before flying away leaving the tormentor lost. These actions however create an endless cycle as the more they prank others the more others loathe them and tell others of their ‘evil’ nature.
Shiny and glittering objects seem to call to Murkrow. Whenever they spot a sparkly object they get overcome with the desire to have it and will try their best to obtain it, be it by buying it or stealing it. Some Murkrow who find this desire in them to be especially strong will even hunt down Meowth or Gabite hordes to steal their most shiny possessions. They then will give these objects to those they feel a close connection with be it family or dear friends. If they have no good relationships with others they will simply hide the shiny objects around their home often forgetting where they put them.
Because most creatures seem to have a bias against them, Murkrow tend to live by themselves be it in a lone house in the mountains or in the rundown area of towns. It is not uncommon for them to try to set up a home in nice locations just for nearby creatures to chase them off for fear they will bring back luck to everyone. Not wanting to ruffle any feathers they will often accept that they can’t live around others and build small homes on tall mountains hoping that they will simply be left alone.
Allignment: Murkow are misunderstood tricksters that either give into the stories and use their negative connotations as a tool or try their best to show others they aren't creatures to be hated. They enjoy playing pranks on others and get a thrill out of causing harm to those that hurt them be it physically or emotionally.

The Murkrow line can live to be about 100 years old. They are considered to be mature at 18 but aren't adults till 20. As they get older their feathers become more and more frayed giving them a wild and unkempt look. No matter how much preening they do, most Murkrow are unable to avoid this fate.
