I had an idea for an alternate-universe Riolu, where instead of Mother Cat being a loving, well, mother cat, she's a cruel scientist human (IDK what her name would be. Riolu, ideas?) and does experiments on Riolu and his siblings and friends. It's sad, I know XD But I like sad things!
This Riolu has a couple differences to normal Riolu, appearance-wise. He wears an eyepatch over his left eye, because of two reasons. One, he's blind in that eye. Two, that eye always looks like his rage form eye. Both were caused by the same experiment gone wrong. Also, his collar tag isn't a Pokeball, but a normal grey tag with his subject number on it, 947 (see what I did there? XD). And finally, his tail has a light blue tip to it, just to add one last difference between this Riolu and normal Riolu.
Personality wise, this Riolu is very different. He's not as brave, and not as childish, since the experiments stripped him of any innocence he had, not to mention he tried hard to grow up fast on top of that to try to protect his friends and siblings. However, he later learned that trying to stand up against his captor is a fruitless effort. He often goes on hunger strikes, but always breaks them in the end. He suffers from generalized anxiety disorder, due to the constant fear of being hurt again. He cries often, and has a low pain tolerance. His hunger strikes led to him developing anorexia, and it doesn't look like he'll be making a very fast recovery, if at all. He's embarrassed about the way his blind eye looks, but he was allowed to wear his eyepatch, so he's glad he has that, at least. If you ask to see his blind eye, he'll quickly try to assure you that you don't wanna see it. He's a bit of a doormat, and can't stand up for himself to save his life.
IDK what to call this AU... I'm thinking Crime and Punishment, based on this song. The song's quite sad, like the AU, and could be written from the eyes of a past, more loving, suicidal human Mother Cat. It also has a hospital-esque atmosphere, which is what I wanted the AU to have.
BlueCatRiolu, what do you think? Do you like this AU?
