Sinnoh Kingdom

    open/close all folders 

The Five Heroes (working on a nickname for the group)

    As a whole 

  • All-Loving Hero: They make friends like Combee make honey, and have shown mercy to defeated enemies more than once. That said, crossing certain lines can make them lose their mercy and take the kid gloves off. Should it ever come to that, the guilty party is gonna have a bad time.
  • Berserk Button: Above all, these True Companions are fiercely protective of each other. Mess with any one of them, and the other four will tear you to pieces.
    • To a lesser extent, they don't take it well when someone insults their mentor/father figure, Byron.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As the three oldest members, Riley, Nando and Cynthia take it upon themselves to look after Roark and Gardenia. Invoked: Riley in particular has been protective of Roark since they were very young, and considers himself a sworn knight and bodyguard to his little lord.
  • Break the Cutie: The world of the Sinnoh Kingdom is not kind to them. At least they have each other.
  • The Determinator: As is typical for Pierrots, they are very stubborn.
  • Fearless Fool: Another Pierrot trait. They find themselves jumping headlong into danger at the prospect of adventure or heroics more often than not. Nando not so much at first, but even he starts showing signs of this after spending enough time with the group.
  • Kid Hero: At the beginning, Roark is 12, Gardenia is 13, Riley, Nando, and Cynthia are 14.
  • Nature Hero: Through their membership in House Pierrot, they all have ties to nature and primarily use earth-based Pokémon (Rock, Grass, Steel, and Ground-types). Gardenia in particular is fond of gardening and the supposedly haunted Eterna Forest.
  • Odd Friendship: Several, given their status as a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits.
    • Roark and Gardenia have a Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl dynamic.
    • Nando being friends with the other four at all, given that House Tantibus has historically never been on good terms with House Pierrot.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Two girls, three boys.
  • Undying Loyalty: To their House, to Byron and most importantly to each other.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World

    Roark Pierrot 

Lord Byron's young son and heir.

    Gardenia Greengrass 

    Riley Ferron 

  • Animal Motifs: He has a dog/wolf theme. Dogs are known for their loyalty and are protective of their owners, which fits his dedication to protecting the Pierrot family. His partner is Riolu, a puppy-like Pokémon. He is also usually the first to take charge of the group in times of danger, akin to an alpha wolf. Less flatteringly, enemies of the Pierrots have referred to him as Byron's "attack dog".
  • Badass Bookworm: He's interested in history and spends a great deal of time at the Canalave Library.
  • The Champion: He intends to be one for Roark.
  • Cool Big Bro
  • Heroic Lineage: His ancestor was the great knight Sir Aaron, who sacrificed his life to stop a war in Kanto.
  • Last of His Kind: The only known Aura Guardian.
  • Lady and Knight: A rare same-sex example, with him as the White Knight to Roark's Bright Lord.
  • Meaningful Name: Ferro(n), Italian for "iron", is a fitting name for a Steel-type specialist and an aspiring Knight in Shining Armor.
  • Nice Hat
  • Non-Idle Rich
  • Noble Wolf
  • Weapon of Choice: Riolu.

    Nando Solista 

    Cynthia Stone 

  • The Ace: Top of her class, beautiful, talented, popular and a skilled Pokémon trainer.
    • Broken Ace: ...but she still has insecurities and flaws underneath it all. She's afraid of letting her friends down, feels pressured by her mentor's expectations, and may be hiding a few dark secrets.
  • Action Girl
  • Blood Knight: She loves the thrill of battle. An aspiring Pokémon master always has to be ready for action, after all.
  • Cool Big Sis
  • Hair Decorations: Two pairs of black teardrop-shaped hair clips. [Note: They will have some significance, perhaps as a Tragic Keepsake.]
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • Lady of War
  • To Be a Master
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Gardenia, although both have tomboy traits. Generally speaking, Cynthia is the tomboyish Action Girl and graceful Lady of War always ready for a Pokémon battle, while Gardenia is the girly girl who likes flowers and fairy tales, but isn't afraid to get her hands dirty in a fight or venture into the Eterna Forest.
  • Weapon of Choice: Gible.
