Atticus

Atticus

Atticus is the boss of Team Star's Poison Crew, a student at the Naranja/Uva Academies, and a major antagonist in the Starfall Street storyline of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. He specializes in Poison-type Pokémon.

Appearance[]

Atticus wears a customized set of clothes that represent his interpretation of a ninja, utilizing a mismatch of purple, black and green colors. His face is partially concealed by his headwear, although during a cutscene when he is not wearing it, he has silver hair and sapphire blue eyes and his facial feature is shown to be very handsome.

His Poison type preference is not only reflected in his predominantly purple ninja outfit, but also the idea that Ninjas use poison and smoke to "conceal" their identity when on missions. His accent being very Shakespearian may be a reference to how many of the tragedies of Shakespear involved poison, but it helps sell his eccentric and misunderstood nature, as Poison as a type is known for being suspicious due to its quirky, threatening traits.

Atticus' academy attire is much more formal than the other members of Team Star, wearing a white shirt along with an academy-colored tie. He also wears an academy-colored suit on top of his shirt and also wears academy-colored pants and shoes.

Personality[]

Atticus is a highly skilled designer, having designed both his and his fellow leaders' based on his interpretation of them. In contrast to his fellow teammates, Atticus speaks befitting of a noble in medieval times. He frequently addresses Penny as "my lady", showcasing his respect towards her. His eccentric personality reflects his preference for Poison types as he's well aware that people find him strange, but he doesn't care, only wishing to just be himself and not get in anyone's way. He is really kind deep down and shows little hostility towards anyone like when he mentioned he would beg for them to lend him the costume for his friend. Ultimately showing that Poison is just as misunderstood as he is and when you get to understand it, it can be a force for good.

Biography[]

Prior to the events of the game, Atticus attended the academy but was quickly bullied for his preference of past trends. He and his friends then formed Team Star to fight the bullies, creating his friends' uniforms in the process. During the preparation, he became the boss of the Navi Squad. Due to their actions however, a scandal about the academy's bullying broke out, and Atticus and the other captains hadn't heard from their boss and waited for their return.

Due to their actions against the bullies, other students were able to return without fear of being bullied. One of these students felt particularly grateful towards Atticus for his actions and wanted to meet him, but his subordinates would refuse to let him in. During Operation Starfall, the player raids Atticus' base and defeats him; per the code, he gave up his badge and also gave them the TM Gunk Shot. Atticus began doubting if their big boss would return, but later reunited with them alongside his friends and agreed to host the Star Training Centers, where the player can have daily rematches with him.

Upon returning to class, Atticus took makeup exams, but struggled with math, as he believed that it was not important for clothes. This resulted in Eri and Giacomo asking the player to help tutor the other bosses. When they arrived in the classroom they were studying in, Atticus sensed someone behind Eri, but was relieved to see that it was just the player. After bringing Mela back to the classroom, the player checked in on them, where he revealed his struggle with math, particularly arithmetic. The player and Eri informed him that making Team Star's uniforms costed them a lot of money, which motivated him enough to study.

After helping Atticus with his tutoring, he can be found in Porto Marinada, auctioning some of his costumes he created.
