So there's a lovely new application form for the Armonia students and so as I am on a break for two weeks I am taking advantage of having a bit more time and getting it filled out for Helga. There's some new info in here too, like her house, classes and club.
Aaah, I will never be able to draw her as cute as I did on her original application. Oh well, this is the way I seem to have settled into drawing her, so having a more accurate representation on her card doesn't hurt.And I cheated and re-used part of the background from her original app >_>
It would also help if I didn't keep making mistakes like misspelling her surname and missing off a stat...
October 20th Height:

Driftveil City Personality:
Helga is a usually a very happy pokemon who works hard, especially when it comes to things she's interested in. She is caring, friendly and fairly outgoing but drastic changes (like moving to a new school) can make her a little nervous to begin with. She is a bit of a tomboy and won't shy away from a fight.History:
Helga is the only girl in her large family, aside from her Mama, and is also the youngest. She has several older Gurdurr brothers that she has adored since she was small: a feeling that is mutual. Despite the overabundance of males in her family though, her Mama is clearly the boss of them all. She and her husband have a very happy relationship and run a construction company together which mainly does work on the Driftveil docks but has also built housing and helped on the drawbridge. Since it is a family business all Helga’s brothers help out too and one day she hopes to do the same.
Growing up in such a large family of boys meant that play fighting and rough housing were common pastimes and she joined in with her brothers whenever she could. Consequently she’s a bit of a tomboy. She quickly got used to having to fight for what she wanted and is not afraid to stand up for herself. She is very independent and doesn’t back down no matter what the odds. Trying to snag the best slice of cake or piece of meat at the dinner table quickly drills into you that you can’t be timid in getting what you want. Nor can you let defeat get to you. If you lose out then you’ve just got to try harder next time.
Construction has always been a big part of Helga’s life and she became fascinated with it from a young age. She started simply by building things out of blocks but as she got older she started experimenting with new things like woods and metals and anything else she could get her hands on. When she learnt to read she gravitated towards science books. She loved learning how things worked and was especially engrossed in Building Science. It was amazing just how much could affect the way a building was constructed, be it the weather or the characteristics of materials or the purpose for which it was made. She enjoyed testing all the new things she learnt in her building experiments and kept records of the results.
As she got older still, she started to fall in love with the full on design aspect of a building. Hence she started to look into architecture, both modern and historical and attempted to design her own, taking into account what she was learning from her study of Building Science. She wanted to know everything she could about the art of creating buildings so that when she could finally help out in her parents’ company she could do the best job she could.
As her obvious love for these subjects grew her family recognised that she had the potential to be great. They wanted to encourage her as much as possible and thought that guaranteeing her an excellent education was a good place to start. The Armonia Institute encouraged the specialness within their students but also taught them important life lessons. Helga’s family thought that being amongst others on her intellectual level but in a new, competitive environment would be very beneficial in helping her develop as a Pokémon. So they filled out an application for her and are now waiting to see if she would be accepted. Summary characteristic:
