Tao Village Guild Leaders
PKOne of the main focuses of the plot, PK is a purple Kecleon who's known for being hot-headed and impetuous, earning her a fearful reputation among traders around and outside of Tao Village. She's known for being the head of the Merchants' guild, with Shroomsworth as her business partner and Sandy as her personal assistant. Her rash decisions usually result in Shroomsworth having to clean up after her. While she comes off as very intimidating, she will do whatever it takes to save Tao Village from danger.It was revealed that PK grew up with her sister Anana and her abusive father to learn the strict family business of trade.During the second Arc, after the destruction of Tao Village and Shroomsworth's bitter farewell, PK became horribly stressed and changed from purple to black. Was responsible for awakening Sorbet, leading to the destruction of Tao Village, Shroomsworth absence of leave, and eventually being engaged to Twigs. Currently locked in the past due to a failed Rescue attempt to save Jasmine.
ShroomsworthShroomsworth is a Breloom who is known as for his impeccable manners and solid business sense. Easily recognized by his exquisite monocle, he is one of the leaders of the Merchant guild along with PK. He speaks with a British accent and tends to be fluent and dignified at all times. Often regarded as somewhat greedy, he has gotten himself into trouble in the past over attempting to maximize profits and minimize losses. He expresses disgust over the idea of using spore-related or dust-related abilities, and as such has none.
SandyA Deino who lived with in Merlot's castle for most of her life before hitching a ride with Shroomsworth to escape the fate of wearing a maid outfit. While she hasn't offered much in the way of information about her upbringing, she is completely loyal to the merchants for not taking her back to Merlot. She helps PK and the merchants in any way she can, and acts as the guard for the base of the Merchants. Like all Deinos, she is blind and relies on smell and sound to interact with othersAs of arc 2, Sandy has become more and more depressed due to PK's negligence of her when PK herself was recovering from the events of Mission 5. She now spends most of her time either playing with Maple to cope or hiding under PK's bed.
RhodesA young Sneasel who used to serve as Slasher's right-hand man in his gang. After his death, Rhodes organized the rest of the Sneasels as "pathfinders" and joined the Merchant's Guild.

Currently dormant after his rampage in Tao Village
MaltA Miltank who used to work on Tao Ranch as an accountant, alongside his sister Ovaltine.After Sorbet's rampage, Malt went to Tao Village to help with the cleanup, hoping to impress PK and Shroomsworth by getting as much work as possible done. Instead, he found a black, heartbroken PK with her partner nowhere to be found.After consoling her he became the new Merchant Guild Leader Assistant.
DevonshireDevonshire the Sableye is the questionable leader of the Rogues. Quiet and ominous, he does little of the gruntwork needed to further his yet unknown goals, trusting the direction of his partner Gunpowder. Shrouded with a past that not even he can completel recall, this ghost he is known as one of the most shady residents in Tao. Smart, cunning, and collected, he is the talk of mauch speculation in Tao. Strangely enough, his first date of residence within Tao Village is unknown as well; he's been there as long as anyone can remember.
GunpowderGunpowder the Gabite is the questionable leader of the Rogues. Sassy and powerful, he does much of the gruntwork needed to further his yet unknown goals, trusting the direction of his partner Devonshire. Being known as quite the liar, his background is as of yet a mystery, with the only certainty being that he was at some point a pirate on the open seas.He is rather abrasive at the best of times, but as many guild members have discovered, he is especially so about certain topics. One such subject is his back "fin". Some have claimed that a male Gabite should have a chipped fin, but Gunpowder is quick to dismiss such claims, saying "I take good care of meself," and that these claims are without any basis to begin with, due to a lack of other Gabite for comparison. Another touchy subject for Gunpowder, although less so, is the topic of "evolution". Gunpowder has a sort of hatred towards Garchomp in general, and is disgusted by the idea of becoming one, although his reasons are unknown.

Mike had just received a letter from Chill outlining the events at Snowy Village. As a direct result, Mike lost his temper and left the treehouse, shoving Fresnel out of the way.Fresnel picked up the discarded letter and read it, realising why Mike was so angry, but also that the triangle he left on the desk was the Icicle Triangle, a Legendary Instrument. He leaves in order to educate Mike on the importance of the artifact at once. Mike loses his temper with Fresnel again, but Maple overheard and asked Fresnel to return.Upon learning that Mike cannot play the Triangle and Maple can, Fresnel asked what reason they had for seeking the instrument in the first place.

To him there always has been war and always will be, however this does not disuade the Ho-oh from completeing his task. The cause of this war is unknown to him, however it's influence is not. Acorridng to him "There is a pervasive sort of cloud that has been resting over the land for centuries, causing more and more Pokemon to commit vile acts against others for no reason whatsoever.
