A mysterious deceased supervillain who has some connection to the Jubilife riots of '53. Died protecting an unnamed Guardian.

* AmnesiacDissonance: [[spoiler:Surprise, Nando!]]
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: As a Dragon Trainer, he believed his Pokemon were superior to all others. [[spoiler:Being reincarnated into a church family as TheUnfavorite of three siblings humbled him quite a bit.]]
* BeingEvilSucks: He was rejected by his own family, despised by the public, and was eventually consumed by guilt over everything he'd done.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He genuinely cared for the other members of his supervillain team, which was the first hint that he wasn't completely irredeemable.
* EvilIsBurningHot: Not a Fire Guardian, but his Dragon-types had access to many Fire-type attacks, which he exploited for all they were worth.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: When he saw all the destruction, death, and pain his actions caused, he started to doubt if supervillainy was really as glamorous as it looked. But by then, he believed it was too late to change what he had done, and when the opportunity presented itself, he went out the only way he could think of: sacrificing his life for another's. [[spoiler:Ultimately subverted, because being reincarnated as Nando offers him a chance to complete his redemption.]]
* MoralityPet: Not confirmed, but his death deeply angered the Menagerie, suggesting that at the very least, they cared about him. [[spoiler:They did]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Subverted. One noble sacrifice doesn't excuse a lifetime of misdeeds, [[spoiler:as his second incarnation finds out. Once he realizes who he is, he has to work even harder to truly redeem himself]].
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He's Nando's previous self]].
* TranquilFury: Like Nando, he's said to have become extremely cold when angry instead of launching into a screaming, mouth-frothing rage, which was apparently what scared the Guardians the most. [[spoiler:It's an early hint that they're the same person]].
* WalkingSpoiler: It's a bit difficult to talk about him without bringing up the fact that [[spoiler:he's Nando]].
* WeUsedToBeFriends: When he's reunited with his previous supervillain team [[spoiler:as Nando]], they're overjoyed at first to see him again, but are greatly disappointed to find out that not only does he not remember the times they had together, his personality has been completely reversed. [[spoiler:He does make up with them before they're redeemed and turn themselves in, and he promises them that they'll meet again. They, in turn, promise that they'll always be his friends, even if they now walk different paths.]]
