The general idea is that my character's parents are members, but she doesn't know. She's studying pokemon biology/environmental science at the sodalite university. She's interested in this stuff, mostly for the sake of ensuring the survival of pokemon through habitat protection, but her parents have been discreetly guiding her life choices so that she could one day become a member of team rocket as well. A scientist.
So, the questions.
a) How are members inducted?
b) I get that there's a promotion to jump from rank to rank, but I'm not sure scientist makes sense, since they should be hired based on skill/knowledge rather than 'you've poached many pokemon, well done, now you get to perform experiments'?
c) Can non-rockets work at cat cafes?
c.a) If no, could an exception be made for someone who they are grooming to become a rocket? I was hoping she could manage a cafe.
Okay, I think that's all for now. Thanks in advance. <3

hi there onyx! first of all, let me welcome you to jinoa :D i'm lecc, one of the admins. secondly, let me answer all your questions:
a. team rocket members are inducted on a word-of-mouth basis. basically, your character should be fine being inducted by her parents. in fact, we already have a different character on here who's parents are in team rocket, and who basically inherited the responsibility ( samuel rollins, played by gato!) so your backstory should check out OK!
b. scientists are one of the specialized promotions. when someone wants to be promoted to a scientist, they have to accomplish at least one science-related mission. this is to assure they have the "qualifications" ic that you mentioned - knowledge/skill/experience. scientists are a relatively respected group within team rocket hierarchy so it wouldn't make much sense for them to go from just grunt -> scientist.
c +c1. yes! non-rockets can definitely work at cat cafes. in some ways, you might even say its encouraged, since tr probably wants their cat cafes to mold into society. only the main cat cafe has a secret hq inside of them, so i think its possible for your character to manage their own cafe (assuming that they have connections and/or their parents are pretty high up in the social totem pole!)
hope this cleared up any questions you have. we look forward to rping with you! C:
