Down that dark alley you're supposed to stay away from.
Still don't have a proper profile thingy up here, but I wanted to give the proper credits for my avatar and signature images:
My avatar was drawn by the talented [url=http://masebreaker.deviantart.com]Masebreaker.deviantart.com[/url] in his 'Mase'd' style.
I highly recommend you check out his gallery - he has some pretty wicked pokémon art.
On top of that, he is commissionable (on that note, he works fast, accurately, and is excellent to work with).
The image of Blade in my signature was a so-called 'chibi-commission' by Seamen on FA (I won't provide the link here, because of the adult nature of FA and my inability to remember if the artist actually had adult art or not).
-The signature was otherwise put together by myself.-
The user Blade does not have any achievements.

Was übersetze ich, und was übersetzet Google, ist zwei sehr anders Dinge. Tut mir leid, aber mein Verstehen nicht gut ist. Die Welt ist Scheiße, aber ich dich hören freue. Wow, das ist schwer. Ich hoffe dich werden besser bald. Auf Wiedersehen, mein Kopf schmerzet

Life is hard, and life makes one hard, and one who has experienced it, seeks a fursona/character or representation of themselves that is equally -if not more- rough.
Now to reply to your point about why his character seems, to you, far from a pokémorph "in a reallife setting"... I would answere by pointing out that, at least in my case (dunno about him for sure), this is my 'fursona'... and I have my own story for the character as a character (he started out as just a character in my story, then as he developed and I grew a bond to him - that is, reflected more and more of myself -, he became my fursona)
... I think I'm not making much sense, my apologies..
And I did not mean to be presumtuous when I said it sounded like you were talking about me... kind of.
A persona is not a personification of ones self, by definition, it is a character, whether it is a part of you does not change it from being a persona. The word you're probably looking for is likely alter ego/altered self. I don't mean to belittle you by correcting it but by definition, persona is just a character and because I take diction and word choice so seriously, I just feel a need to correct that. Your point on people's lives being rough seems pessimistic to me since hardships only outweigh everything else in your life if you let them do so so I'm unlikely to understand why the rough edge is added.
I do not understand what point you're trying to get across but I do understand what you're saying about him originally being part of a story and thus needing to be captivating and special.
I'll explain once more though that I have no problem with pokemorphs nor fursonas themselves but when the terms are used as synonyms, it irks me because one is an alter ego while another is merely a pokemon with human characteritics meant to function in a human society.
