Siôr 'Rowan' Caldecutt aka Professor Rowan is the father of Émile and Gage. He is shown to be gruff and tough, but really, is actually very nice. He gives out starters to new trainers, however, he does have his own Pokémon. His first Pokémon was Aurora, an Empoleon he had since he was about eight.
His personal quote is: "Research has many rewards." His height is 6'4" and his weight is 200 lbs. His ancestry is English, Irish, Scottish, German, Dutch, Canadian, French, etc. and his accent is described as being slightly German and mostly American.
He has two sons: Émile and Gage. His parents are deceased and his wife left him, however. The only thing he has left that are in the immediate are his two sons, his half-brother Samuel, his grandchildren: Marie, Stanford and Jade but also his great-grandchild: Jasper. He has a cousin named Chad, whom is younger than him. He also has two nephews named Gaël and Albin and two nieces named Sheena and Mitternacht.
He recently (in fact, about two months ago or eight months ago in our time) that electric type mammals such as Luxio and Jolteon send electrical pulses through the ground. The exact reason for this is unknown, but it is probably used to conduct electricity better. They feel the ground differently than most Pokémon. Water also dissipates when they step on the ground. He discovered it when he was studying wild Luxios - he saw the ground spark beneath their feet from recent dew. Quote, Siôr, June 2008:
"My initial response was 'amazing'. I had never seen anything quite like this before. I knew that Luxios send messages via their claws [when they touch each other] but I had no idea they sent electrical impulses when walking, too. I knew got shocked by this, though. I have no idea the cause and the reason behind this, though. More research is needed."
He also concluded it's possible that other electric types do this as well.
