Althea was somehow simultaneously the quietest and friendliest girl in Celestic Town during her childhood. Everyone knew her, and everyone liked her, but she was just as happy - perhaps even happier - with Pokemon as she was with people, which surprised no one who knew her parents. Her father Lee came from a long line of Veteran Trainers and even Champions; her mother's family, the Morros, had started a daycare in Celestic some three or four generations before, and were devoted to its upkeep. She spent most of her free time indoors, learning how to breed and raise Pokemon and, later on, helping to teach at the Morro Daycare. Just as often, however, she could be found meandering around the very edges of town, or sitting at the very edges of the forest, simply watching and listening to the wild Pokemon, with no wild daydreams about an adventure of her own.
Unlike most children, Althea wasn't gifted her first Pokemon at the age of 10, nor did she catch him. Instead, according to her family's tradition, she put her training to good use to breed a sparky young Eevee to accompany her for the rest of her life. Named Lee, after her dad, the Pokemon now accompanied her on her daily walks, and, really, anywhere she went, and she was happy for the company. At the age of 16, when most of Celestic's children leave home for even brief adventures, Al chose to stay, believing that her parents and her town needed her help more than anything, and now began work on a personal project to build to her own Pokemon journey. The result of this project: a shiny Fennekin, affectionately nicknamed Kindle for his quiet personality and warm typing.
Eventually, at 18, a sense of wanderlust finally caught up with her. Once she'd ensured her parents had help at the Daycare, she took off with her two companions for the Unova region, famous for its Pokemon shows and artistic trainers. Most of her past six years have been spent breeding, befriending, and showing Pokemon, earning a reputation for herself as both an excellent trainer and a prodigy of a breeder, as well as a sense of competition and a team of Pokemon. A sense of duty, however, frequently calls her home, where she has become a sort of minor celebrity - much to her chagrin, as Celestic is the last place she wants the attention she's been known to receive in bigger cities. Still, she comes back on holidays, whenever her parents or old friends need her presence, or on the rare occasions when the rooted sense of homesickness sends her back to Sinnoh.
