XD-385's origins 'update' by XD-385 XD-385's origins 'update' by XD-385
Picture copied with permission from :iconjuug: Thanks again, man.:manhug:

An update has been made near the bottom.


The Ultimate Bioweapon, XD-385 is the result of a joint-venture by Team Magma and Team Aqua that spanned two years. Should the experiment have been successful, they would have disbanded their original teams and rejoined the two factions into an orginazation known as Team Gaia, which would focus on the wellbeing of the entire planet, not just the earth or oceans. Team Gaia would have used the absurd power of XD-385 to take control of the entire planet, maintaining the balance of nature by force. Fortunately, he became aware of his creators' intentions and attempted to escape, only to be captured and banished into space due to his unruliness. XD-385 was originally intended to be composed of the DNA of 386 species of Pokemon, but the DNA of Deoxys was excluded due to it not being native to the planet Earth, which made the possibilty of finding one slim to none. Even so, he is still a creature of monsterous potential. His greatest powers come from the DNA of the three Pokemon that crafted the Earth, Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. Likewise, he is able to undo their work and destroy the entire planet in a second if he wished it.

Personality-wise, XD-385 is a fairly gentle guy who does not mind serving those who respect him as a person. The first being to show this kind of acceptence was Ash Ketchum. Due to this, XD-385 chose to live to protect this boy, who he had come to understand as a hero with potential to rival his own. He is quite protective of his friend, frequently refering to him in a formal fashion, calling him "master" at times.:worship: He is also protective of Ash's family, becoming a devoted guardian to his mother and children. This said, XD-385 harbors intense hatred towards anyone who has caused harm to Ash, which he shows when he attempts to kill his brother Mewtwo, who had ruthlessly murdered Ash during the events at New Island. Even so, XD-385 will not harm those that Ash does not wish to see hurt, even going so far as to put his hatred of Mewtwo aside when Ash tearfully begs for Neo to spare him when he is about to deal the final blow.:tears: But even Ash cannot stop Neo from dishing out some much-deserved payback to Gary Oak, who had tormented Ash on a daily basis throughout most of their earlier days. He proceeds to break Gary's jaw, but spares him due to his newfound friendship with Ash.

XD-385 adopts the name "Neo" very shortly after meeting Ash for the first time. He even begins to refer to himself as Neo Ketchum due to Ash being in love with one of his many sisters, Latias.:date: Knowing that they will likely get married someday, Neo jumps the gun and refers to himself as Ash's brother-in-law, even before the official wedding. Being cloned from 385 Pokemon, Neo has a very large family. However, he has only met a small number of his siblings during his life. They include Latias, Latios, the son of Lugia, Ash's Charizard, Suicune, Entei, Raikou, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. But due to her eternal life and being around for centuries, Ho-oh sees Neo as her son and seems to care for him on a very deep level, reviving him from death after he is killed by the Nightmare. Neo has also acknowledged Ho-oh as his mother, which he displayed at the beginning of his duel against Ash in the finals of the Hoenn championship.:matrixfight: And since his brother, Silver, is the son of Lugia, Neo sees him as a father as well. This view is returned by Lugia when he refers to Neo as his son.

Neo appears to be human due to his Ditto DNA, allowing him to take on virtually any form he chooses. But because his set gender is male, he is not able to Transform into female lifeforms. This also prevents him from Transforming into female-exclusive Pokemon such as Miltank and Nidoqueen. He is also able to use abilities that are widely used by various Pokemon types, like being able to pass through solid objects like a Ghost type Pokemon would. And due to his Porygon DNA, he is able to interact with electronic devices and is able to enter cyberspace. He is also a walking bank account and can produce as much currency as he wants by the use of his Porygon DNA. Of course, this prevents him from paying in cash, which can be a problem at times. And due to that particular DNA, Neo is able to survive in the void of space. He is also able to regenerate his body from as little as a single nerve cell due to the DNA of Pokemon like Grimer since they can replace severed parts of their "bodies" by generating more of the gelatinous goop that composes them. Possibly his most useful trait is his immortality, which is provided by a number of Pokemon that have existed since ancient times. However, he claims that immortality is really more of a curse than a blessing, knowing that not many have such a trait, resulting in them living forever, most of the time without anyone to keep them company. Neo is even capable of combining his unique powers together for shocking results. One example would be combining his Celebi and Jirachi abilities. By using Celebi's powers of timetravel, Neo is able to grant a wish with Jirachi's powers in only 1,000 minutes instead of 1,000 years. Even reviving the dead is no trouble to him. And since he is immortal, his body does not age as it travels through time. The only downside to this is that he does not bathe during the process, causing him to reek terribly by the time he awakens.

Neo wears a prototype Team Gaia uniform that he stole from a laundry room in the secret lab where he was created. It has features from Team Aqua's and Team Magma's uniforms. The upper half is designed like that of a Team Magma uniform, complete with a hood without horns, and gloves. The lower half is Team Aqua style. However, the uniform lacks any symbols as the two teams had not yet decided on one at the time. The uniform is also completely green, symbolizing nature in general. And since this is the only clothing he has been seen wearing, it is safe to assume that green is Neo's favorite color.

Neo's hair and eye colors are key factors of his current mood and power. His normal state is when his hair is ruby red and his eyes are sapphire blue. Even in this state, Neo is very powerful. Neo becomes even stronger when his eyes become the same shade of red as his hair. He is also surrounded in a red aura when in this state. His personality at this time is one of extreme aggressiveness, as he seems to enjoy bringing pain to his opponents. His next state causes his eyes to return to their original blue color, but his hair also becomes sapphire blue. His aura becomes a pretty shade of blue as well. But unlike his previous form, Neo's personality becomes icy cold. He seldom says much as he pummels his victims. His next form is not his most powerful, but is argueably his most dangerous. One side of Neo's hair becomes ruby red while the other side is sapphire blue. Likewise, one of his eyes becomes red while the other is blue. He is also surrounded by a blue and red aura. This imbalance in colors is a testament to his unstable state of mind. While much stronger than before, Neo is almost psychotic and very bloodthirsty.:psychotic: His methods also become sickeningly twisted and lethal.:stab: He has entered this state on only two occasions. The first occured entirely by accident when his hatred of Mewtwo boiled over. The second time was when Neo was attacked by XD-380, otherwise known as Jango, while training in the caves of Mt. Silver in Johto. He entered this state willingly in order to effectively counter Jango's wild and potentially suicidal combat style. Neo's final form is when he draws upon 100% of his power. Both his hair and eyes becomes emerald green and he is engulfed by an equally green aura. But unlike his previous forms, Neo's personality is almost no different than normal. Needless to say, he is absurdly powerful as he is able to take on Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza all at once and defeats them with fairly little effort. There is also one other form Neo is able to achieve, but it is not possible for him to reach it on his own. He is able to send out a telepathic message across the planet to ask for aid from all Pokemon. They can donate some of their strength willingly, or Neo can extract it forcefully if the need is great enough. When the combined power fuses with Neo's own, his aura surges fiercely in 17 colors, one for each Pokemon type element. His emerald green hair and eyes begin to shine brightly as well. In this state, Neo is able to fight almost on the same level as Ash in the Pandemonium state. Almost.

The moves that Neo seems to use most often include Leaf Blade, Seismic Toss, Blaze Kick, Teleport, Aura Sphere, Hyper Beam, and Substitute. He is also able to unleash the dreaded Big Bang Attack. At first unable to use it himself, he understood how to pull it off after seeing Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza use it themselves. But hidden in Neo's arsenal of tricks is one move that has never been witnessed in history. The reason for this is that no one was around to witness its use for the first time. It is impossible for Neo to use this attack on his power alone. He must first extract as much power from all Pokemon as possible without killing them, by force if need be. Since this attack has never been witnessed by mortals, its name is unknown to all but a few immortal creatures. But this attack comes with a cost. Should the user lose even the slightest bit of control over the attack, it will disperse in all directions, erasing all traces of existence throughout the universe. Whether Neo will ever resort to this diabolical move remains to be seen.:ohnoes:


*Update*

Neo eventually grew to discard his prototype uniform after discovering the hard way that his red hair combined with his green clothing made him bear a striking resemblance to a certain storybook character for children. :oops: Using discarded clothing materials, he crafted a pair of new outfits for himself. The first was a rather artistic attire consisting of green cloth like those of a Renaissance fair attendee, complete with golden gauntlets and greaves. Feathers of various colors are attached to the gauntlets and greaves in pairs of four each, as well as round gems of matching colors, each color representing one of each of the 17 Pokémon element types. The last of these feathers and gems extends above a circlet he wears around his forehead with the gem at the very center. But due to its showy and elegant form, Neo felt it would not be suitable to the rigors of travel. He proceeded to create an outfit that was more casual. It consists of blue jeans, a white t-shirt covered by a sleeveless green jacket (which he tends to keep unzipped) and a pair of blue and white shoes. He tends to wear this secondary outfit at most times, concealing his other outfit inside a backpack.

An interesting aspect of Neo's personality that is rarely shown is his view of himself. While he is loyal to those who respect him and fights hard to defend them, his view of himself as an individual is shockingly poor. He is painfully aware of his origins as a WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) and often looks down on himself. He is also slow to trust others due to how quickly his creators turned on him, though there are rare exceptions. As he is very hard on himself psychologically, he also believes he is unworthy of any kind of bond beyond the bonds of mere friendship.

Does this mean we may see more from the Guardian series soon? AWESOME!

Seriously though, as much as I love all the characters, Latias *does* need more attention in the forefront; I think you only need one Ashton-style polygamist, and Guardian doesn't feel like it fits that theme so well as Romance does.

Neo is partially based on my own personalities and preferences, so no. As much as I love the idea of finding a girlfriend, I just wouldn't be very supportive.:depressed: I would be a burden to her and I don't want to do that to anyone.

He wasn't desperate enough. He just used a flurry of different attacks with little to no intervals between them. I guess from some views, it could've been seen as one long attack.

Very useful, but I had already read most of it from the 'other site' (you should know by know who I am. My name starts with a C) but either way, this is an exellent background check to neo.

This is now like the blueprint on how to do a good character bio, hell! maybe I'll even emulate it.

Not really. Defeat only exist if you allow it to exist.

I do not allow defeat to exist, therefore, I am still undefeated.

BTW, the name is spelled CIPHER, not CYPHER. CYPHER is the drone used by the U.S. military (and snake for his final smash.)

Also, nice fics.
