Mark Sparrow (天武, Tenmu) also known by his friends as Tennō is a rookie from Eden Town of the Hora Region and is one of the only rookies not to start with a regular starter, owning his trusty Eevee nicknamed Vui instead. He is the son of Johto Resident Shingo and as such carries his fathers brains and tactics in battle. When not on his journey he can be found lounging by a river or in a forest.



Full Face

Sporting short red hair and having a serious look at almost all times, Mark is a trainer that most do not want to anger just on looks alone. He wears a dark blue shirt with red trim and blue pants with red trimmed sneakers. He is seen wearing a bag that matches his shirt and on his wrist is his Livecaster.


Born in the Johto region of a member of a member of the Blackthorn Dragon Clan and Shingo, Mark was a prodigy at birth. His mother moved to Eden Town when he was young and live there for many years, his older sister started her journey in Hora and when he came of age so did he. His best friend is his partner Vui, an eevee that he rescued at a young age. He is always nicknaming his pokemon and figuring out what a pokemon personality is so that he can match them with the perfect name. Mark isnt like other trainers who aim for the top as he is a brilliant battler but he loses faith if his pokemon are hurt too badly as he cares about all of them as if they were his family and as such cherishes his bond with them.


Mark is a very relaxed, civilized and reliable person. However, once his bad side is stirred he becomes a dark person. He can sense how his close friends are feeling regardless if the person directly tells him or not. Once he finds his true love, he becomes the most caring, devoted and committed person that one will ever find. He is genuine, one-of-a-kind, the type that is hard to find in the Hora Region. He is skilled and patient when it comes to training his Pokemon.He is careful when it comes to choosing his friends, hence is why he doesn't have that many.
