A trainer from Alola who has come to Fuchsia's Safari Zone in order to reintroduce the endangered Mudbray/Mudsdale line to the wild.
- Captain Ersatz: It's pretty obvious whom she's based on, down to having a Komala named Stitch.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Has a Mudsdale.
- Giant Enemy Crab: Her Crabrawler.
- Green Thumb: Her Alolan Exeggutor and Lurantis.
- Limit Break: Clearly she was ready to use a Z-Move against Red, if it wasn't because Kaiser called her off for some paperwork. We later get to see her Z-Move, Tectonic Rage, in her fight with Ash and Red.
- Mighty Glacier: Without a Tailwind Mudsdale is quite slow, but it hits hard and tanks a lot of hits.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Being Alolan, her Exeggutor is part Dragon-type.
- Stone Wall: Mudsdale absorbs hits like no ones business. Giving it significant damage took Ash and Pikachu weaponizing the field itself.
A youngster from Alola who took part in a Johtoan tournament. His starter is Alolan Rattata.
- I Feel Guilty; You Take It: He attempts to give Joey the Pokémon egg from the Cherrygrove tournament because he feels he didn't earn it fair after Joey burst into tears for everyone still making fun of him and runs. Joey turns it down, because he never entered the tournament for the egg anyway.
The future Trial Captain of Akala Island. He specializes on Fire-Type Pokemon. His grandfather Koa used to be a Kahuna.
- Age Lift: Is 16 during Reset's start and 17 during the Kiawe oneshot.
- Ancestral Weapon: His Firium Z has been in his family for generations since the era of King Kahele.
- Composite Character: Has elements of his Anime and Game self: He has a Turtonator and Marowak like the anime, and a Fletchinder like his game self, and has elements of both his game and anime selves in his story by being a student at the Pokemon School and an aspiring dancer.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Zilant finds him attractive.
- Friendly Rivalry: With Frax.
- Limit Break: He has a Firium-Z that's been passed in his family for generations.
- Playing with Fire: Fire-type specialist.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Something that Lillie can't stop staring at.
Fraxinus "Frax" Lono
Velvet's twin brother and a classmate and (friendly) rival of Kiawe at school. He prefers to go by Frax.
- Aura Vision: According to Velvet, both she and Frax can see residual Z-Move energy this way via part of their Bloodline.
- Big Eater: Can pack away Malasada as much as Hau.
- Book Dumb: Not very good at schoolwork, especially written essays.
- BrotherSister Team: Often fights alongside Velvet.
- Character Tics: Shares the same habit as Ash of turning his hat around when it's time to get serious.
- The Cloud Cuckoo Lander Was Right: The fact that he's still alive likely means that his theory about Bloodliners and Z-Moves might have some weight to it.
- It may have something to do with how he's apparently created Z-Crystals in the past.
- Covert Pervert: Used to read the same Porn with Plot series his sister did before he got weirded out by similarities between the characters and them.
- Do Not Call Me "Paul": He does not seem to like being called by his full name.
- Expy: Of Sun and Moon Ash, basically replacing his entire story. He even has his own versions of Ash's Alolan Mons, as well as a Butterfree and a Munchlax as a mirror to Ash's Snorlax. He later battles and captures a Hawlucha. However his Pikachu is female and his Rowlet (later Dartrix), Litten, Rockruff, and Hawlucha are not the same as Ash's canon ones.
- The Fighting Narcissist: Not him, but his Dartrix after evolving with insistence on using Pokeball seals to make a dramatic entrance and using attacks in overly dramatic ways.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish to Velvet's responsible, at least academically.
- Friendly Rivalry: With Kiawe and Hau.
- Heroic RRoD: He keeps passing out in fields trying to use his Bloodliner status to use a second Z-Move with a fresh Pokemon, though the fact that he's still alive means that he might have a point.
- Idiot Hero: He's got a good heart, but SM Ash, and thus him, are not the smartest tools in the shed. His essay skills leave a lot to be desired. He also missed the part about the Oricorio flowers differing between islands.
- Insane Troll Logic: Battling Kiawe as equals apparently means removing his shirt.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu and Clemont's mention that Future Frax was killed confronting Lusamine and Nihilego during the start of the Bad Future getting really bad
- Limit Break: Tapu Koko gave him an one use Electrium-Z, and he later obtained a Normalium and Grassium Z.
- Magnetic Hero: Tends to get his Pokémon without needing to battle them.
- Meaningful Name: Fraxinus is the Genus of plants that Ash Trees are in. Given that he's a Ash expy, if not outright half brother, it fits. His last name, along with that of his sister, refers to the real life Hawaiian Deity of fertility, agriculture, rainfall, music and peace, is tied to the Musical Theme Naming of their siblings and paternal uncles.
- Mistaken for Racist: In the Melemele Grand Trial Interlude, he stares at Gladion, trying to figure out why he seems familiar. When he notices, Gladion gives him a glare and asks if it has something to do with him being a "Haole" (an often derogatory term used to describe non-native Alolans).
- Quantity vs. Quality: Keeps trying to find a way to perform a Z-Move with a second Pokemon after doing one with another. His sister focuses on doing Z-Moves quicker.
- Shirtless Scene: Decides to fight Kiawe without a shirt, and has been tricked into going to class shirtless in the past by Lana.
- Smarter Than You Look: Despite the Book Dumb and Idiot Hero entries, the Gladion oneshot implies that he's more perceptive than he looks at first glance given that he noticed similarities between the twins from the Alphanegan Chronicles and he and Velvet, which his sister dismissed as crazy. He also is aware of the benefits of resting after intense training, a point often missed by many.
- Velvet notes that he may have a point about how being Bloodliners might let them use a second Z-Move in succession with a different Pokemon, but still prefers her speed focus.
- Technician vs. Performer: Has a tendency to make strategies on the fly and think on his feet, unlike his sister who prefers to plan ahead.
- Technicolor Eyes: Has red eyes, just like Red, Belladonna, and Vermell.
Fraxinus's twin sister and also classmate of Kiawe, Sophocles, Lillie, Mallow and Lana.
- Aura Vision: She specifically shows this during the Gladion oneshot, revealing an ability to see Z-Aura residue on a person or Pokemon after use. This is able to give her an idea of how often and how good they are at Z-Moves, as well as the type of Z-Move used.
- BrotherSister Team: Often fights alongside Frax.
- Covert Pervert: Is a fan of the Porn with Plot book series the Alphanegan Chronicles.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Two of the Pokemon she's shown using are Dark Types, Alolan Ratatta and Meowth/Persian, and she's rather nice.
- D-Cup Distress: Downplayed; she mentions that running is difficult due to her large chest, and she has to buy her bras from overseas because it's very hard to find ones that will fit her in Alola.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible to Frax's Foolish, at least academically.
- Genre Savvy: Constantly chides Frax for saying "What Could Possibly Go Wrong?", knowing from watching TV that uttering those words is asking for everything to go wrong. Ironically, she ends up saying it once, and almost pays for it.
- Huge Schoolgirl: She was one of the tallest girls in her class when she first arrived, and took the spot as tallest after a year. Something her possible half-sister Iolani notices.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu and Clemont mentioned that Future Velvet was killed confronting Lusamine and Nihilego during the start of the Bad Future getting really bad.
- Limit Break: Tapu Koko gave her an one use Electrium-Z, and she later obtained a Normalium and Darkinium Z.
- Meaningful Echo: She repeats her possible half sister Iolani's comment about punching her father if she ever met him. She also mirrors Ash's reaction to Pidgeot's evolution when Persian evolves.
- Meaningful Name: The Velvet Ash is found in Hawaii, though it's not native. In fact, its native range is actually the southwestern United States, which is where Orre is based on. Given that's where their hinted father is said to originate from, it's rather apt. What her last name has to do with anything is unknown as of yet, though the name does retain a Musical Theme Naming with several of their half siblings and paternal uncles.
- Quantity vs. Quality: Unlike her brother's attempts to get past the Z-Move limit, she focuses on efficiency and speed with Z-Moves, even figuring out a way to use them to boost non-damaging moves.
- Signature Move: Switcheroo seems to be this for her.
- Statuesque Stunner: Tallest girl in her class.
- Technician vs. Performer: She prefers to strategize for battles unlike her brother who simply makes up plans on the fly.
- Women Are Wiser: She's at least smarter than her brother, doing notably better on an essay than him. Though she can be just as strange, she was the one who came up with an idea of smothering flames with a giant tongue after all. Then there was that time she jumped off Kiawe's Charizard to rescue a piece of pottery.
A classmate of Kiawe, Frax, and Velvet. She specializes in Water-Type Pokemon.
- A-Cup Angst: Given that she muttered about being envious of Iolani's hotness, and later referred to Velvet's boobs as "enviable", this trope is most certainly in effect.
- Age Lift: Is 15 during Reset's start and 16 during the Kiawe oneshot.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: She would not be against someone calling her younger twin sisters 'fanged little monsters'.
- Covert Pervert: Beyond her shirtless fetish Velvet hints she has a porn collection. And it's implied that she explained to Lillie what their parents were doing that night near Christmas.
- Eating the Eye Candy: She enjoys shirtless men.
- Making a Splash: Water-type specialist.
- The Napoleon: Also this. Makes one wonder how she handles being around Velvet all the time? It doesn't help that she's falling behind Sophocles in height by the time of the Melemele Grand Trial Interlude.
- The Trickster: At one point she convinced Frax to go to class shirtless by saying the class was on Alolan Sumo.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Her father works away from Alola to support his family, so she only sees him rarely.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: As per canon.
A classmate of Kiawe, Frax, and Velvet. She specializes in Grass-Type Pokemon.
- Age Lift: Is 15 during Reset's start and 16 during the Kiawe oneshot.
- Green Thumb: Grass-type specialist.
- Lethal Chef: Looks like she went through doing that electrified stew in this timeline as well, as well as an incident with mind altering mushrooms. And then there's whatever she tried to experiment with for Frax and Velvet's breakfast.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair.
- Age Lift: Is 15 during Reset's start and 16 during the Kiawe oneshot.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Gave Sophocles an icy glare when he almost insulted her brother.
- Big Little Sister: She's much taller than her older brother Gladion.
- Composite Character: She is mostly her anime self, but is shown to have recently obtained her in-game duffel bag. Nebby doesn't seem to be in (and out) of it yet however. In the Gladion Interlude she's shown to already have her Alolan Vulpix Snowy and notes that her anime Pokephobia is present, which the Akala story shows has a similar origin. Lusamine is also much closer to her game self than the anime version of her.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: As per canon.
- Huge Schoolgirl: She has inherited the height of her mother.
- An Ice Person: Her Alolan Vulpix, Snowy.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu and Clemont's mention that Future Lillie was killed confronting Lusamine and Nihilego during the start of the Bad Future getting really bad.
- Luminescent Blush: Shirtless men do this to her.
A classmate of Kiawe, Frax, and Velvet. He specializes in Electric-Type Pokemon.
- Age Lift: Is 15 during Reset's start and 16 during the Kiawe oneshot.
- Always Someone Better: He feels inferior when compared to his cousin Molayne or Clemont.
- Distracted by the Sexy: He blushes at Iolani's hotness.
- Shock and Awe: Electric-type specialist.
Hala's grandson, who likes Malasada.
- Always Someone Better: He feels that everyone else in the Pokémon School is this to him.
- Armour-Piercing Question: Frax asks him one about whether it's his grandfather that he wants to surpass, or his father.
- Berserk Button: Do not attempt to take his Malasada. Ever.
- Big Eater: At least for Malasada.
- The Cameo: His only appearance in the Kiawe Interlude was a memory of him fighting Frax's Munchlax over Malasada.
- Disappeared Dad: His father left Alola years ago and he hasn't seen him since.
- Raised by Grandparents: His grandfather Hala is the one who raised him, though his mother is still alive.
- Related in the Adaptation: The identity of his father is never revealed. In this story, his father is Bruno of the Kanto Elite Four.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Malasada, and Frax's Munchlax likes it too. This leads to conflicts.
Lillie's older brother. A wandering trainer.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Compared to his other counterparts he's sillier: his titular oneshot plays with his overly serious and broody nature and he is a fan of Porn with Plot book series. However he is still as tough as his anime self is, earns money by tracking down feral Totem Pokemon and was able to battle Velvet and frequently competes in Battle Royals.
- Canine Companion: His Midnight Lycanroc and Umbreon. He's also mentioned to have Type: Null.
- Composite Character: Has elements of his game and anime selves, possessing his anime team and Z-Ring/Rockium Z but having more clear issues akin to his game self and possessing Golbat. He later obtained Steelium Z like his Sun and Moon self.
- Deadpan Snarker: Quite capable of this when need be.
- Jerkass Has a Point: While the way he phrases is rather rude, his comments during the Grand Trial are pretty accurate.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu and Clemont's mention that Future Gladion was killed confronting Lusamine and Nihilego during the start of the Bad Future getting really bad.
- Little Big Brother: He's notably shorter than Lillie.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Obtaining a Steelium-Z.
- Silent Snarker: His Umbreon is constantly doing this.
- Teens Are Short: He's not happy about not inheriting his mother's height.
The mother of Frax and Velvet. A store clerk.
- Good Parents: With a mix of Parents as People, but it's clear that she loves her children.
- One Steve Limit: Averted as she has the same name as the Olivine City Gym Leader.
- Parents as People: She needs to do extra hours at work to earn extra money, so sometimes she comes home late.
The local Pokémon Professor of Alola, and a teacher in Melemele's Pokémon School.
- Composite Character: Is a teacher like his anime-self, and wants to establish Alola's own Pokemon League, like his game-self.
- Cool Teacher: He's shown to be this to his students.
Professor Samson Oak
Samuel Oak's cousin, and the Principal of Melemele's Pokémon School.
- Pungeon Master: Like in canon, the narration hints that he's this.
- Secret Keeper: Is aware of Samuel Oak's and Adalbert Hastings' friendship and frequent contact.
The Bewear from the Anime, just as clingy as ever. Has 'adopted' Gladion.
- The Stinger: Basically debuts this way. It appears in the last scene grabbing Gladion and Pokemon and taking them away.
The latest descendant of the royal family of Alola descended from Kamehameha, honorary niece of Nanu. In an alternate timeline, she continues to rule Alola as Queen.
- Alternate Self: The Queen Acerola mentioned by Tobias, which the author confirmed is not the same Acerola as in most of the other Reset works, but one whose family is still royalty and she is the current ruler of her Alola, and also being older than her game self.
- Queen Incognito: Batuan didn't recognize Queen Acerola when she gave him a pep talk about his issues.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: The alternate Queen Acerola actively helps the victims of a landslide in Akala.
A Cosmog, an Ultra Beast capable of teleportation.
- Living MacGuffin: As was the case in the games, Nebby is sought after by Lusamine to access Ultra Space.
Trial Captain of Poni Island, who specializes in Fairy-Type Pokemon. She's an artist.
- Noodle Incident: She tends to wake up in Hapu's couch whenever she does art. At some point, she did so shirtless.
Flying-type Trial Captain of Akala Island, and for a time, only Trial Captain of Akala Island until Kiawe became one. See the General Supporting Characters page for her tropes.
Trial Captain of Ula'Ula Island who almost finishes his term, Sophocles cousin and Steel-type specialist.
The future Kahuna of Poni Island, who specializes in Ground-Type Pokemon. Is of farm folk.
- Amazonian Beauty: Future Hapu is described to be as tall and muscular as Lt. Surge.

The Kahuna of Melemele Island, who specializes in Fighting-Type Pokemon. He has a grandson who is fond of Malasada.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Fighting-type specialist.
- Bears Are Bad News: Much like his game self, he owns a Bewear, and it inflicts the most damage during the Grand Trial to Frax and Velvet's teams.
- Cool Old Guy: A rather pleasant old man.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu's comments suggest that Future Hala was killed at some point.
- Mighty Glacier: As noted by Stratovarius, his Fighting types tend to be slow and strong with the exception of the Primeape line and his recently obtained Riolu.
- Moment of Weakness: Upset over Alolan youth being increasingly disinterested over the Trials and Kukui for his idea of establishing Alola's own Pokemon League, he lashes out at Hau, which terrifies the latter.
- My God, What Have I Done?: He quickly regrets lashing out at Hau when the latter flees in terror.
- Noodle Incident: If the omake in Akala Adventures is canon, he owes a lot to the Charleston dance, quite possibly up to meeting Hau's grandmother.
- Pals with Jesus: His Tapu is the most active of the four, and while he appreciates its involvement, it annoys him that it always steals his root beer.
- Parents as People: He means well, but issues did crop up with his son, and quite nearly his grandson.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: His Riolu is his smallest Pokemon, but performed quite well in its grand trial debut.
- Related in the Adaptation: The identity of his son is never revealed in canon. In the story, his son is Bruno of the Kanto Elite Four.
The Dark Type Kahuna of Ula'ula Island. Fond of Alolan Meowth. He's also an Honorary Uncle of Trial Captain Acerola and a former member of the International Police.
- Crazy Cat Lady: Gender Inverted. He lives with a lot of Alolan Meowth, to the point he has to deliberately set up his tree with sacrificial ornaments for them.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Dark-type specialist.
- Defector from Decadence: How he views his departure from the International Police.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu's comments suggest that Future Nanu was killed at some point.

- Christmas Cake: She seems incapable of finding a boyfriend.
- Friendly Enemy: Towards several Team Skull grunts who she personally complimented, even as she lamented how they aren't reaching their fullest potential.
- Hartman Hips: Her hips are quite her most noticeable feature.
- Killed Offscreen: Future Hapu's comments suggest that Future Olivia was killed at some point.
- The Klutz: In her youth she was one, a la her anime self. No longer the case in the present time.
- Lightning Bruiser: Stradivarius notes she prefers these types of Rock Pokemon.
- Pals with Jesus: Apparently, her Tapu tries giving her dating advice.
Kiawe's grandfather, and the predecessor of Olivia.
- Cool Old Guy: Iolani certainly thinks so, and Kiawe doesn't disagree.
- Meaningful Name: His name is a tree in the same genus as the Kiawe tree his grandson is named for.
- Named by the Adaptation: He was never named in the anime, at least at the time of the Reset writing.
- Posthumous Character: He's been dead for a few years.
A guardian entity that protects Melemele Island. It is known for causing trouble for Hala.
- The Chooser of The One: Tapu Koko has stolen Z-Rings from Hala to give to people it personally sees as interesting. They include a thief, an archeologist with a lisp and a missing finger, and the Ash-like twins Frax and Velvet. It has also shown an interest in Ash and has an interest in others who resemble the latter three.
- Drowning My Sorrows: Goes off for some root beer after Zilant refuses a Z-Ring.
- Not Good with Rejection: Non-romantic example; it gets really mad when people refuse to accept Z-Rings.
- A Taste of Power: Tapu Koko, according to Kiawe, is able to give people one-use Z-Crystals. It's the Resetverse take on why Ash's first crystal fell apart.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Root Beer, stolen from Hala.
- Troll: It likes to mess with people sometimes, often by hiding in the dark and shouting it's name loudly just to scare them.
- Then there's deliberately knocking over Hala's potted plant...
- Then there's dropping Gladion in front of that Bewear....
A guardian entity that protects Poni Island.
- The Ghost: Only mentioned so far, although it's hinted that it will appear in future works to play an important role.
A guardian entity that protects Akala Island.
- The Chooser of The One: Tapu Koko suggests that Tapu Lele gave Iolani a Z-Ring, and might have been the one who gave Betty Snyder her own as well.
A guardian entity that protects Ula' Ula Island.
- The Ghost: Only mentioned so far.
Aether Branch Chief and Scientist. Not all that popular.
- Jerkass: Zilant find this refreshing, after getting tired of the Alolan friendliness everywhere.
- My Friends... and Zoidberg: When Future Hapu mentions the Aether Foundation, she calls them good men and women, and Faba.
- Token Evil Teammate: Hinted at by Future Hapu specifically distinguishing him from the "good men and women" who worked for the Aether Foundation. This could be suggesting, much like in the anime and USUM, he is a nasty piece of work without alien toxins, or that he's just a pompous jerk no one likes.
Assistant Aether Branch Chief. Very popular. She was born in Fiore before moving to Alola. The aunt of Zilant via her older sister Pia.
- Buxom Is Better: She is Wicke after all. She specifically notes this being the one aspect of beauty she has over Lusamine.
- Culture Clash: Being a Ranger native she has viewpoints on Pokeballs and trainers that put her at odds with Trainer culture at times, though compared to her nephew she has had a lot longer to see the positives of Trainer culture and isn't as dogmatic.
- For Want of a Nail: Exposure to a Ultra Beast Toxin reveals the nail that was a party her sister and she were at: staying at it would have led her to become pregnant by the same man who fathered Zilant Ash's dad and given birth to a daughter Pannonicia.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: She describes her relationship with her sister as "a long, lengthy, guerrilla war of aggravation". One that hadn't improved with age.
- Parental Substitute: She's a better mother to her nephew than his own mother is, and lets him room with her while in Alola.
- Weight Woe: She notes during her brief mental time travel...thing that she had put on weight on her hips since her college days.
Aether President. The first person known to be affected by Nihilego toxin. Gladion and Lillie's mother.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: In Universe example: Future Hapu and Clemont aren't sure if the fact that the Pokemon she froze in ice blocks being severely ill or injured were done because it was easier to get away with, or it was the only way her madness could justify it. It's still creepy, but the latter suggests a more moral side of her left even after the toxin infection. The latter interpretation got a big of a leg up in the Wicke & Nephew oneshot, and later on the second Holiday Special.
- Everyone Went to School Together: Mr. Stone of the Devon Corporation was a T.A in several of her college classes. They still keep in touch.
- Good Parents: The Holiday special shows she was this before she got high on Nihilego toxins.
- Happily Married: According to Wicke, she and her husband Mohn were this until he disappeared.
- Hidden Depths: Unconnected to her madness lies immense skills in chemistry and an understanding of Pokemon pheromones.
- Never Lend to a Friend: She taught this to Lillie apparently.
- Offing the Offspring: Hinted to have done this to both her children in the Bad Future.
- Old Money: Hinted to be this.
- Pet the Dog: The Wicke & Nephew Oneshot shows her being honestly nice at a few points where she didn't really need to be to keep her cover as a non crazy person.
- Statuesque Stunner: Gladion mentions that her height is the one thing he would have liked to inherit. Wicke herself notes that Lusamine is attractive to pretty much every standard but Buxom Is Better.
- Super OCD: Lusamine showed some traits of this pre Nihilego with her family's Christmas Tree.
An ancient king of Alola, who set up the basis for the region's modern society and culture. Created the Z-Crystals.
- Abdicate the Throne: He eventually gave his position as king to one of his sons in his later years.
- Americans Hate Tingle: A slight example of this. While he is a well respected figure of Alolan history, a Kalosian rhyme about the Dark Pestilence mentions it was heralded by 'a man from afar' who floated in. So to Kalosians he is the unnamed herald of a devastating disease.
- Bi the Way: Historians believe he was bisexual.
- Bold Explorer: Traveled to many lands and returned to Alola with many treasures and Pokemon species.
- Founder of the Kingdom: Founded the first unified Alolan Kingdom, even if it was not the longest lived incarnation of it.
- The Good King: He was this by all accounts and was set to continue this streak with his descendants before their decimation.
- MuggleMage Romance: He was a bloodliner, and had many non-bloodliner wives.
- Mysterious Past: There are plenty of legends on him, but a lot of exacts aren't clear. Beyond his hinted connections to Ultra Space and the Dark Pestilence, Tapu Koko suggests that he and at least one of his wives has some connection to why the Tapus are giving Z-Rings to Ash and his half siblings. The Wicke oneshot strongly hints he was a Faller, while other story events suggest he was a Bloodliner.
- Polyamory: Had many wives, and it's believed that some of them were involved with each other.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: It's hinted he might have had something to do with the Dark Pestilence plague that ravaged Kalos, based on a old rhyme in the Astrid oneshot. From what's said about him it's highly likely this was not intentional.
An ambitious man who sought to establish himself as the pinacle of power in Alola, conspiring to murder King Kahele and his entire family to erase his lineage, plumetting the islands into a bloody civil war.
- Ambition Is Evil: He rose through the ranks in Kahele's system and wanted to take full power for himself.
- Famous Ancestor: Word of God confirms that he's a direct ancestor of Trial Captain Acerola.
- Historical Domain Character: He and his descendant (who share the same name) who later fully took control of Alola as the in-game royal family are based on the real life unifying Hawaiian king by the same name.
- Leave No Survivors: Made sure not to leave ANY of Kahele's family members alive.
