Hometown: Sunyshore City; Sinnoh Region

Xevryn was born the second and youngest son to a sickly single mother in Sunyshore City, of the Sinnoh Region. Unfortunately, her waning health made it incredibly difficult for her to provide the childhood that she believed her sons deserved. And, regrettably, she passed before Xevryn had even reached his teen years. This left him to be raised by his brother, Silva, who was 12 years his senior.
Silva, already a budding physicist, saw the academic potential in the younger Morgais, and made attempts to challenge his mind. However, Xevryn's heart was on the battlefield, and he spent his time at the Sunyshore City, watching the battles that went on there with much enthusiasm and he couldn't wait to challenge the Leader and start his own journey. Still, as a concession to his brother, Xevryn reluctantly humored Silva and /tried/ to occasionally assist him in their basement/laboratory. Sadly, not everything would be sunny in the City by the Shore for long.
One day, the brothers Morgais were busy in the lab, and Xevryn, as per his youthful haste, neglected safety protocols and left one of the burners on as rushed out to the gym to catch the day's matches. Unbeknownst to Xevryn at the time, but the resultant fire would not only claim his home, but his brother and caretaker. When he returned home, he found the site already lost as crews sifted through to find what could be salvaged. They came across a steel case which housed Silva's favorite tie, which they presented to the surviving Morgais. Awash with regret, Xevryn decided that he would honor his brother's memory and honor his wishes, devoting himself to the sciences that Silva believed he had an affinity for.
Despite his new resolve, Xevryn couldn't stay in Sunyshore. That being the case, he fled to Kasei to start over and finished his studies at Lakeside U and over the years, he completed his doctorate in a variety of fields, and went on to become a full-time professor at the school. Even as an accomplished academic, Xevryn still held the small flame for the battlefield that dominated his youth. To satisfy that, he took up leadership of the Shale Valley Research Museum and Pokemon Gym. There he could continue his work and still enjoy the occasional battle that enamored him in his youth.
Having taken the time to increase his knowledge of Pokemon and the mystery of their origins and evolution, Xevryn has opted to pursue teaching as an accompaniment to his research. Currently the Professor of General Pokemon Study and Evolution Theory at Lakeside University as well as the Gym Leader of the Shale Valley Museum and Research Institute, and sitting Director of Team Lunar, Xevryn hopes to use his knowledge to help further trainers' understanding of their Pokemon partners as well as improve their bonds through battle. As an authority on Steel-type Pokemon and one of the few Pokemon professors for the Kasei region, the Doctor still finds time to pursue his own personal passion of Timespace dynamics, spending a great deal of time within the Crossroads, a barrier dimension between this this world and the Distortion World.
To his peers, Xevryn has always come off as a hard person to read. His personality, though amiable and pleasant, can often have him coming off as distant to others who aren't sure how to take him. He is the sort to observe and study a situation before jumping right in. This isn't to say that he is cold and calculating; he would say that he is pragmatic and chooses a more tactical approach to matters. He is also exceedingly sociable to a fault, often having to catch himself prattling off-topic when engaged in stimulating conversation. Some would also say that his mannerisms are borderline quirky at times, as he becomes extremely excited and animated when he solves a problem or devises a plan. Despite his generally jovial demeanor, when pushed to protect that which he truly cares for, he shows an almost cruel, merciless fervor. Afterwards, he often scolds himself for resorting to such measures. Whether in life, the arena, the lab, he takes a patient, measured approach to obstacles, and revels at the opportunity to display his intellectual prowess. He wouldn't consider himself arrogant in the slightest, however he'd be the first to admit that his very confident in himself, his farsighted nature, and his ability to assess and prepare for numerous potential outcomes.
Being a man of science, Xevryn truly embraces the idea of fusion despite never experiencing the phenomenon first-hand. Seeing fusion as the logical evolutionary step between human and pokemon, he strives to learn more about the process by studying the physiological and mental effect that is endured between human and pokemon. To him, fusion truly proves that genetically humans and pokemon are not all that dissimilar.
