Doing the same with Doug.
Name: Douglas “Doug” “Mr. Dig” “Mr. Diggory” Diggory
Bodystyle: Average build but very short. A potato like build.
Home Island: Mystery Isle
Personality: You could certainly call Doug a quirky fellow. He can be jokey and funny one minute but serious and almost scary in another. He is a man of many faces quite fitting for his totem Pokemon’s triple heads. While he may seem to be of many personalities he is of one mind. He is a very intelligent man. He usually appears cheerful but this cheerfulness hides the pain of the loss he’s experienced throughout his life. He’s been through quite a lot in his time.
History: The mob life was the only life for Douglas. His father was a crime boss and his grandfather as well and so on and so forth. The young Diglett was only too keen to join in though despite all the crime and mayhem around him; the family was just that a family. They had big grand meals together and shared laughter and merriment. They may have been cutthroats, murderers, and thugs but hey it was home! And that home was in grand Lumiose City in Kalos! Even back then it was a sight to be seen even without it’s fancy high tech tower. They were quite happy with their low tech beacon thank you very much. His father Donald and mother Deidre did their best to raise their boys up right even in this less than safe environment. Douglas was their youngest son of three. Their first two Damian and Dante took after their father and would grow into strong, menacing, if slightly dim Houndooms, while Doug took after their mother. Short, stout, and a Diglett. Douglas was the little brother in every sense of the word as he was always small as he suffered from dwarfism. As such his mother and father tended to baby him even more than if he was just the baby of the family. While some older siblings may resent this fact Damian and Dante were very overprotective of their brother as well given his small and perceived fragility. While Doug was small he was a very smart cookie even at a young age. He was something of a child prodigy. The family was quite proud of him.
Due to having two prime successors for the family business and young Douglas’ brains the Diggorys sent their youngest off to med school which he was only too happy do. He figured he could become a medic of sorts to the family for when they couldn’t head to the hospital. He did well in his schooling as he was always apt to do. His fast hands and keen eye made him quite the master when it came to doctoring. He returned to Lumiose years later and he found the family in shambles. Unbeknownst to him his dear father had died at the hands of another criminal vying for power, his brother Damian had taken his place as the boss and his dear mother had fallen ill after losing her husband. Using his knowledge from med school slowly but surely Douglas found a way buy making remedies by hand how to cure his mother of her illness. Once she was well she told her boy to go straight and to leave the crime family behind. While she knew how much the family meant to him she didn’t want any of her boys dying like their father did and she knew she couldn’t talk the older two out of it. She hoped she could him. Knowing that it was what his mother wanted he agreed and soon after that with some form of peace in her mind Deidre died. While Douglas could do everything to fix up her body he couldn’t fix her broken heart. So she went on to join her husband.
After this Douglas started his own business, it started small but with the help of his family it was able to quickly become one of the most well known drugstores in all of Kalos: Doug’s Drugs. Time passed and after a few years Douglas found love of his own. A beautiful Lopunny woman named Mimi. The two started dating and grew very close as time went on but the happiness couldn’t last. In a cruel twist of fate it wasn’t an enemy bullet that took out the next don but a car accident. Doug had lost another family member. He had never told Mimi about his ties to the underground so he had to wait until he was alone to mourn his elder brother. Soon after his death Dante took over the job as the leader of the underground and life went on. Douglas and Mimi were married and they soon had their first child. A big, bouncing, baby, Buneary, boy! They named the boy Harvey after Mimi’s father. As time went on and things seemed to be going peacefully they had more children. Two more boys, a Bunnelby they named Bugsy, and a Diglett who was to be named Donald for Douglas’ father. Things were peaceful for a time but as always with Douglas’ life things couldn’t stay peaceful for long. Dante was killed tragically in a shootout just as Douglas and Mimi welcomed their fourth and final child into their life, a baby Buneary girl named Rosie. With all of the other Diggorys dead the family turned to Douglas in their time of need. He declined as he’d been on the straight and narrow for far too long. The understood and wished him the best of luck. However as time went by and new more savage criminals started taking over Douglas knew that for the good of everyone he cared about he’d have to go crooked. It was at that moment that Douglas Diggory finally evolved and became a Dugtrio. While he didn’t have three heads, three distinct personas began to form. The first Doug Diggory the kind caring owner of Doug’s Drugs, the second Mr. Diggory the serious no nonsense head of the household who was extremely overprotective of his family, and the last the new head of the criminal syndicate his family had run for years; Mr. Dig. While all three were the same man they seemed like very different people.
It was at this time that for the first time in their marriage Douglas spilled the beans, he knew if he was going to live a double life he couldn’t keep his partner in life in the dark any longer. Despite how long the secret had been kept and how worried she was for him Mimi understood. Family was very important to the both of them and the mob was Douglas’ family just as much as she and the kids were. Unlike his parents before him it wouldn’t be until much later that they introduced their children to daddy’s other job. For many years Douglas lived his almost triple life, his time as Doug the sweet little drugstore owner, the serious but loving father at home, and the menacing boss of the criminal underworld. During this time Douglas met a certain Krookodile (then a Krokorok) and took him under his wing but when the boy wanted to start a family of his own he knew he couldn’t keep him in danger so he let him go. Years down the line and surprisingly nothing majorly heartbreaking had happened in his time as leader. He loved his brothers but he knew neither one of them were very bright so he understood that their demises were as much their own fault as anyone else's. He played it smarter building a suit of steel he could hide in if need be to protect himself. While he never did any killing himself there was blood on his hands, on both sides. He took every loss of family personally. Which was why when a true tragedy struck he was both unprepared and thoroughly crushed.
His beloved wife died suddenly. Not by a bullet but by a disease not caught in time. The family, both families didn’t know how to react… one day she was there the next gone. No warning. This was the straw that broke the Camerupt’s back as well as Douglas’ spirit. He finally understood the pain his mother had gone through all those years ago. He wanted to die but his children wouldn’t let him. They still needed him here in this world. So he held on. He had to get away though. He could be Mr. Dig no longer. He gave up control of his underground empire to his three sons. Harvey and Donald (both the second) acted as muscle for the new Mr. Dig; the brains of the trio Bugsy. His lovely daughter having as much brains as her middle eldest brother took over Doug’s Drugs for her beloved father, she renamed it Rosie’s Remedies.
With everything taken care of Douglas still needed to find a new place to live far away from the city that had brought him so much pain. Soon enough a shining light appeared to him the certain Krookodile who he thought of almost as a fourth son had heard the news and he rushed to his mentor in tears. The two comforted each other and when he told the man that he needed to get away he told him of the island that his son had moved to. How it was far off and had dozens of nice people. He also told him of the small summer home they had recently bought and that he wanted Douglas to have it. It wasn’t much but maybe it could grow into a new home for him. Douglas agreed that it could. He packed up his things and his late wife’s dog and the two were off for Raccolto.
Job: Business Owner
Shop Name: Doug’s Drugs
Stock Type: Basic remedies for aches and pains as well as cold meds. However if need be he can basically do any sort of medical procedure. He just needs the time and the tools.
Dog’s Race: Furfrou Dog’s name: Max Dog’s gender: Male
Ability: Fur Coat Nature: Adamant / Capable of taking hits
Max was originally Mimi’s dog but when she passed the old dog became rather grumpy. Much like Douglas this move to the country will hopefully help him get back some of his old energy and pep. He’s a dog who is set in his ways though so he may not end up liking country life much.
Odor Sleuth / Headbutt
Sand Attack / Last Resort
Talents: Digging (naturally), making home remedies, doctoring? That's certainly a talent I'd say, a master of puns.
Funfacts: Due to him wearing a bowler and a false mustache as part of his Mr. Dig persona his mob family tend to call him Mr. Potato Head when it’s just them around.
He enjoys mystery stories quite a bit and crime dramas on TV. Kinda ironic when you think about it.
(Not so fun fact) He had a bad run in with an ice type in his youth. It led to a general distrust of the type both Pokemon and those with the totem.
Sexuality: Straight (But he won’t be much for dating.)
Loves: Home cooked meals, talking to people, his children and grandchildren, reading, taking walks with Max, any and all ores (save for junk).
Likes: Herbs and such that he can turn into medicine, iced tea, fresh veggies, smoking his pipe, quality alcohol.
Dislikes: Radio talk shows, fast food, fighting (but he’s still capable of it.), short jokes, as a general rule ice types (bad experience in his youth), low quality beer, junk ore.
Hates: Guns, cars, Lumiose City (but he loves the people there), self important and or hateful doctors, stupid punks, whac-a-mole machines (obvious reasons).
Ability: Arena Trap*
Nature: Quirky, A little quick tempered, Often lost in thought
Sucker Punch / Beat Up
Dig / Tri Attack
Sucker Punch - Even if he’s not a criminal anymore he’s still not above a sneak attack if need be.
Beat Up - As someone who has always been small Doug has had to fight more with his head than his hands. He can use his silver tongue to convince people to help him either by using charm or intimidation. This should be clear by the fact he ran a criminal syndicate for years and never got his hands bloody. He can use this move defensively or to have allies gang up on his enemies.
Dig - Well of course he knows dig. It was in his previous form’s name after all! He can use it for actual tunneling or for digging up dirt on people.
Tri Attack - A flashy move his late wife convinced him to learn. His Special Attack isn’t the best but it still looks nice so he’ll break it out for parties and those random status effects if he gets in a fight.
*A note about his ability. Arena Trap allows him to create a sort of mystical chain linking him to someone so they can't avoid him. Quite a useful ability when you need to give someone a shot or they owe you money.
