He is around the same age as his best friend and crush Halo. He's The Reincarnation of the Heart of Darkness the evil that try to destroy the alola region and many others. When he was little his parents abandoned him left him at an orphanage not a very good one in fact. Due to his dark aura no one and I mean no one wanted to adopt him but everyone wanted to adopt little Halo but do you want to know the sad truth he accidentally killed Halo parents. it wasn't his fault he couldn't control his dark aura. He has yet to tell Halo feelings for her mainly cuz he knows the she's going to have to kill him. Just like what happened all those years ago although hopefully she'll be stronger. There aren't many people he trusts I mean it's kinda understandable though. I mean if your parents did what his did you'd little uneasy on trusting people. That's not the point here. He is unaware of Halo's feeling for him. So Vlad thinks that it would be best for to just kill him. Halo can't she won't she just loves him too much.
