KIERAN REED
TWENTY-EIGHT MALE NIGHTSHADE ADMIN



appearance
When he's by himself, Kieran carries himself with a delicate, deliberate elegance. He walks with a thoughtful float-and-glide that makes him seem perpetually in deep thought. When he speaks to people, he gestures minimally, and often holds his hands and torso in a slightly withdrawn manner. His expression is rather mild; he has a default expression of slight amusement and can generally be caught with a light smile on his lips. When experiencing forceful emotions, Kieran gestures powerfully with wide swinging gestures, although he comes across more as neurotically graceful than aggressive.

Kieran dresses in a very proper manner, often opting for the prep-boy look with lots of tweed, well-pressed shirts and chinos. He wears his Nightshade pin on the inside of his jackets, revealing them only to those within the fold.


personality
Kieran's mind is a brewing, simmering sea that glimmers through his eyes. Although his gaze often drifts across landscapes, a clear look into his eyes reveals surprising depth. Kieran is also rather soft-spoken and introverted, not speaking unless he has to, and even then often sticking to the bare essentials. He often lets a foxlike smile slip through whenever he knows something that someone else doesn't, or is processing a particularly delicious thought in his head, which brings us to the next point -- Kieran's existence is one of the intellect. He is constantly doing something in his mind, be it considering a paper he just read or pondering a philosophical dilemma.

As a man of the mind, Kieran often takes his measure of people by observing their wit and ease of reaction. Kieran is a poet in speech, able to craft the finest phrases that are both economical and plump with meaning. This means Kieran has the ability to both praise someone to the heavens as well as tear their self-esteem to bits. Something one should also remember about this man is that he's not one to forget anything. He remembers everything everyone has ever done for (and to) him, and he's someone who keeps a score. There's always something ticking in the gears of his mind.

As ruthless as he might be, Kieran is a man of his word. He's also a gentleman in most senses of the word and insists on manners and being a good host. Naturally, he also expects his guests to be good and gracious guests as well.

It might be a surprise, but Kieran does have loyalties. He thinks his parents are just misguided, and would go to great lengths to protect the men under his charge.


background
Kieran grew up in a family that was overwhelmingly and oppressively Christian, the kind that would spank him till tears flowed if he was caught smuggling Harry Potter books home ("these books are traps of the devil!"), eating any type of candy ("your body is the Lord's temple, not a dumping ground for trash!"), failed to do God glory in his exams by scoring straight 'A's, and - God forbid - look at girls. Kieran spent most of his early life in isolation both because his parents obsessively kept him away from the world's filthy corrupting influence and because his peers generally thought he was odd. For the most part, Kieran had Klaus the Eevee as his only companion.

One day, Kieran found a Zorua creeping about his garden, and he quickly earned its friendship when the lonely boy tossed him a Berry. Kieran's parents practically exploded when they found out that their son had polluted himself by playing with a Dark Pokemon. Furious with rage, they dragged him into his room and locked him inside for the rest of the weekend, throwing hard bread and lukewarm water into his room thrice a day.

On Saturday night, that Zorua appeared to Kieran as a Taillow resting on his windowsill. The mischievous red gleam in that bird's eyes gave Kieran hope. Perhaps there was a way out.

Kieran learnt several lessons from his new Pokemon friend. One, let the audience see what they want to see. Kieran played along, praying devoutly whenever his parents were within earshot and writing Bible verses across his schoolwork. Eventually, he convinced his parents that his faith was strong enough to withstand the world's dark grasp, and gained more freedom as a result. Soon, he was able to walk home from school by himself, and even go out for dinner with the several friends that he had!

It turns out that the dark world wasn't such a bad place after all. Kieran found his way around the neighbourhood and hung out with friends from Nightshade, and experienced delights he never dreamed of before. Drink, money... girls. This was exactly what he wanted. This side of creation was probably bad because it was so damn good.

After Kieran left for college, he never looked back. It turns out he never actually attended college. Instead, he invested his tuition fund in a food-and-beverage venture with some of his Nightshade friends and made amazing returns by virtue of his shrewd acumen. Alongside his financial success, Kieran ascended the Nightshade ranks and is now a director of his own gang of brothers.

base post count: 43
30 May 2017: 119 posts, and 75 were claimed
the main team

LUKE
GARDEVOIR MALE SYNCHRONISE GOLD
Luke is surprisingly light on his feet even for a Pokemon as agile as Gardevoir. Luke holds himself regally and moves as though life is a ballroom dance.

Battles: 1 2 3

Moves: Growl, Confusion, Double Team, Teleport, Disarming Voice, Wish, Lucky Chant, Magical Leaf, Heal Pulse, Draining Kiss, Calm Mind, Psychic, Imprison, Imprison, Charm, Hypnosis, Future Sight, Captivate, Dream Eater, Stored Power, Moonblast, Misty Terrain, Healing Wish, Shadow Ball™, Energy Ball™, Thunderbolt™, Fire Punch (Move Tutor), Ice Punch (Move Tutor), Pain Split (Move Tutor).



ODYSSEUS
ZOROARK MALE ILLUSION GOLD
Odysseus is a feisty and easily excitable fellow. Like most other Zorua, Odysseus exhibits a trickster's streak, and practices his growing illusory powers on Kieran and his friends.

Moves: Imprison, Scratch, Leer, Pursuit, Hone Claws, Fake Tears, Fury Swipes, Feint Attack, Scary Face, Taunt, Foul Play, Night Slash, Torment, Agility, Embargo, Punishment, Nasty Plot, Imprison, Night Daze, Flamethrower™, Shadow Ball™, Calm Mind™, Snatch (Move Tutor), Bounce (Move Tutor), Low Kick (Move Tutor).


SEBASTIAN
TYRANITAR MALE SAND STREAM GOLD
Sebastian is generally amiable but has an awful temper. Few things provoke him to the point of absolute fury: having his superiority threatened and getting hungry.

Moves: Thunder Fang, Ice Fang, Fire Fang, Bite, Leer, Sandstorm, Screech, Chip Away, Rock Slide, Scary Face, Thrash, Dark Pulse, Payback, Crunch, Earthquake, Stone Edge, Hyper Beam, Giga Impact, Dragon Claw™, Surf™, Aerial Ace™, Iron Head (Move Tutor), Superpower (Move Tutor), Stealth Rock (Move Tutor).


PERICLES
ALOLAN MAROWAK MALE LIGHTNING ROD GOLD
Pericles, or “Ricky” whenever Kieran feels like making fun of him, is an old soul who is a lot more quiet and stoic than a Pokemon his age should be. It might be a Marowak thing, or it might just be a Ricky thing, but Kieran’s not very sure why this little guy is so quiet. He wishes he knew how to make Ricky open up more, and one has to wonder whether Kieran realises that Ricky mirrors his own insecurities about being honest with himself. Pericles likes salty food very much.

Moves: Headbutt, Double Edge, Bone Club, Flame Wheel, Growl, Tail Whip, Leer, Hex, Focus Energy, Bonemerang, Will O' Wisp, Shadow Bone, Thrash, Fling, Stomping Tantrum, Rage, False Swipe, Fling, Bone Rush, Endeavour, Flare Blitz, Retaliate, Ice Beam™, Thunder™, Aerial Ace™, Thunder Punch (MT), Iron Defense (MT), Swords Dance (MT), Perish Song (Egg), Belly Drum (Egg), Screech (Egg), Endure (Egg), Detect (Egg), Double Kick (Egg), Ancient Power (Egg), Chip Away (Egg), Iron Head (Egg), Skull Bash (Egg).



DIANA
WEAVILE FEMALE PRESSURE GOLD
Diana, named after the goddess of the moon and the hunt, was just like her namesake. Fierce, powerful, unstoppable. She is a relentless maternal force who takes great care of Kieran and his team, although her sharp personality makes it hard to look beyond her prickly appearance to see the tenderness inside.

Moves: Agility, Beat Up, Slash, Ice Shard, Embargo, Revenge, Assurance, Scratch, Leer, Taunt, Quick Attack, Feint Attack, Icy Wind, Fury Swipes, Nasty Plot, Metal Claw, Hone Claws, Fling, Screech, Night Slash, Snatch, Punishment, Dark Pulse, Surf™, Aerial Ace™, Poison Jab™, Snatch (MT), Iron Tail (MT), Low Kick (MT).



ALEX
NOIVERN MALE INFILTRATOR GOLD
Alex is caring and thoughtful. He strives to find peaceful solutions and only attacks when he has to defend himself.

KLAUS
ESPEON MALE MAGIC BOUNCE SILVER
After evolving into an Espeon, Klaus has become much more confident, and has taken on his trainer's astute observation skills and vanity.

Tier anomaly is due to level-tier conversion.

Moves: Helping Hand, Growl, Tackle, Tail Whip, Sand Attack, Confusion, Baby Doll Eyes, Swift, Quick Attack, Bite, Psybeam, Psych Up, Morning Sun, Psychic, Power Swap, Covet, Refresh, Take Down, Charm, Baton Pass, Trump Card, Celebrate, Shadow Ball™, Dazzling Gleam™, Heal Bell (Move Tutor), Signal Beam (Move Tutor).



JONAH
TYPE:NULL GENDERLESS BATTLE ARMOUR SILVER
Being a Nightshade Admin, Kieran was awarded his own specimen of a recent clandestine scientific experiment. Jonah is rough and fierce, merciless in battle, but seems strangely tender in quiet moments.

Moves: Tackle, Rage, Pursuit, Imprison, Aerial Ace, Crush Claw, Scary Face, X-Scissor, Take Down, Metal Sound, Iron Head, Double Hit, Air Slash, Punishment, Razor Wind, Tri Attack, Heal Block, Rock Slide™, Dragon Claw™, Icy Wind (MTM), Iron Defence (MTM).

JENNIFER
JYNX FEMALE DRY SKIN SILVER
Jennifer is a roaring good time! She’s loud, sassy and seemingly perpetually drunk.

Moves: Sweet Kiss, Confusion, Sing, Lucky Chant, Copycat, Draining Kiss, Perish Song, Pound, Lick, Lovely Kiss, Powder Snow, Double Slap, Ice Punch, Heart Stamp, Mean Look, Fake Tears, Wake-Up Slap, Avalanche, Body Slam, Wring Out, Rain Dance™, Shadow Ball™, Water Pulse (MTM), Skill Swap (MTM).



HELEN
ARCANINE FEMALE INTIMIDATE SILVER
Helen is a fluffy ball of joy, and loves tumbling and laughing with friends. Evolving into an Arcanine has made her much more assertive and confident of her strength.

Tier anomaly is due to level-tier conversion.

KATAK
FROGADIER (SHINY) MALE PROTEAN SILVER
Katak, obtained via trade with Nox Korrik, is actually very happy to join this new team. He's good friends with Odysseus and exhibits a similar sneaky and cunning streak.

Moves: Pound, Growl, Bubble, Quick Attack, Lick, Water Pulse, Smokescreen, Round, Fling, Smack Down, Substitute, Bounce, Double Team, Rock Slide™, Grass Knot™, Ice Punch (MTM), Low Kick (MTM)..



RAOUL
LUCARIO MALE INNER FOCUS SILVER
Raoul is daring, brave and adventurous. Ever since he evolved into a Lucario, he's become even more confident of his skills, and now considers himself chief adventurer of the team. No challenge is too daunting for this boy!

Tier anomaly is due to level-tier conversion.

Moves: Extreme Speed, Dark Pulse, Aura Sphere, Foresight, Quick Attack, Detect, Metal Claw, Counter, Endure, Feint, Force Palm, Power-Up Punch, Swords Dance, Metal Sound, Bone Rush, Quick Guard, Me First, Calm Mind, Heal Pulse, Dragon Pulse, Flash Cannon™, Psychic™, Water Pulse (Move Tutor), Ice Punch (Move Tutor).




JULIAN
HAUNTER MALE LEVITATE SILVER
Julian is much like Odysseus, and is very much a cunning prankster as well. It's no surprise the two of them are best friends.

Moves: Hypnosis, Spite, Lick, Mean Look, Curse, Night Shade, Confuse Ray, Payback, Sucker Punch, Shadow Punch, Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse, Destiny Bond, Hex, Nightmare, Sludge Bomb™, Dazzling Gleam™, Giga Drain (Move Tutor), Ice Punch (Move Tutor).


CARLOS
LOMBRE MALE RAIN DISH SILVER
Carlos' trickery is outmatched only by Odysseus' penchant for illusions. Both of them are best buds despite their radically different physiology.

Moves: Astonish, Growl, Absorb, Bubble, Natural Gift, Fury Swipes, Fake Out, Water Sport, Bubble Beam, Nature Power, Uproar, Knock Off, Zen Headbutt, Rain Dance™, Ice Beam™, Fire Punch (Move Tutor), Thunder Punch (Move Tutor).



OPHELIA
SNUBBULL FEMALE INTIMIDATE SILVER
Following her tier boost, Ophelia has become much more confident of herself, and is very outgoing in both personality and battling style. She's also developed a love for nursing.

Battle Credits: 1 2 3 4 5 6

Moves: Ice Fang, Thunder Fang, Fire Fang, Tackle, Scary Face, Tail Whip, Charm, Bite, Lick, Headbutt, Roar, Rage, Payback, Crunch, Sludge Bomb™, Bulk Up™, Water Pulse (Move Tutor), Heal Bell (Move Tutor).



COLOSSUS
SPRITZEE MALE AROMA VEIL BRONZE
Kieran thought it'd be funny to name his latest acquisition after a quality it obviously doesn't possess. Colossus is really a loud noisy pink thing who can't stop screaming. He screams when he's excited, sad, and anything in between. He's also often hungry.

Moves: Sweet Scent, Fairy Wind, Sweet Kiss, Odor Sleuth, Echoed Voice, Calm Mind, Draining Kiss, Aromatherapy, Attract, Charm, Flail, Misty Terrain, Skill Swap, Disarming Voice, Charge Beam™, Magic Coat (Move Tutor).



SALEM
ROTOM GENDERLESS LEVITATE BRONZE
Nightshade just issued this new asset to Kieran in preparation for his new portfolio addition: overseeing the team's industrial operations. Kieran doesn't really know how to deal with this nut. Salem seems to enjoy giggling and bouncing about, and enjoys playing hide and seek inside the electrical appliances all over Kieran's office and home. For now, Salem has taken up residence in Kieran's fridge. Kieran grudgingly tolerates its presence because he can reach into it for a soda whenever he wants.

Battle Credits: 1 2 3

Moves: Charge, Trick, Astonish, Thunder Wave, Thunder Shock, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Shock Wave, Ominous Wind, Substitute, Electro Ball, Light Screen™, Snatch (Move Tutor).



CHARITY
HONEDGE FEMALE NO GUARD BRONZE
Another one of Kieran's Nightshade acquisitions, Charity is named for her extension of it - opponents have one chance to surrender before she begins fighting in earnest. She's ruthlessness incarnate. Even Kieran is occasionally creeped out by her.

Battle Credits: 1

Moves: Tackle, Swords Dance, Fury Cutter, Metal Sound, Pursuit, Automotize, Shadow Sneak, Aerial Ace, Iron Defense, Power Trick, Reflect™, Shock Wave (Move Tutor).



ROBIN
ROWLET MALE LONG REACH BRONZE
Robin is a huge bubble of joy, full of light and happiness.

Moves: Tackle, Leafage, Growl, Peck, Astonish, Razor Leaf, Foresight, Pluck, Synthesis, Fury Attack, Feather Dance, Nasty Plot, Swords Dance™.



NOLAN
MIMIKYU MALE DISGUISE BRONZE
Nolan is cute but hides a terrible temper.

Moves: Splash, Scratch, Astonish, Copycat, Double Team, Baby Doll Eyes, Shadow Sneak, Mimic, Feint Attack, Charm, Hone Claws, Pain Split, Grudge (Egg), Destiny Bond (Egg), Curse (Egg), Nightmare (Egg), Toxic™.
