Grand Master Greevil is the Grand Master of the Cipher Organization and the main antagonist in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. He is thought to be Evice's successor as the Leader of the Cipher Organization. However, it has been discovered that Evice was not the "big boss", and that Greevil was.
Greevil appears as a rather short, elderly man with rather big ears and is usually seen with his eyes closed and smiling. He also wears glassses and a robe that is purple and yellow in color. During the final battle with Greevil, his sinister, yellow eyes are shown.
Under his "Mr. Verich" name, Greevil, at first, appeared as a kind old man that helped out Michael and his younget sister Jovi from Zook. However, once he revealed his true colors, Greevil is an evil man that wanted to use Shadow Pokemon to take over the world. Greevil is also very power hungry and will do anything to get what he wants.
Greevil disguises himself as a resident of Gateon Port by the name of Mr. Verich. He has 3 Cipher Admins working on behalf of his orders in the Cipher Organization; Lovrina, Gorigan, and Snattle. Not only that but he is the father of Eldes and Ardos who are his bodyguards. Greevil is known as the "Grand Master" his followers with all them looking up to Greevil as their master. Ironically enough, we are given hints that Eldes, one of Greevil's two sons, doesn't fully support his fathers ideals while Ardos, Greevil's other son, is fully supportive of Cipher's ideals and survival.
The idea of creating an unpurifiable Pokémon (XD001, Shadow Lugia), was the idea of Greevil such that he could create an army of unstoppable Shadow Pokemon in which he could us to take over the world with. His team all consisting of Shadow Pokemon includes; Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno, Rhydon, Exeggutor, and Tauros. After capturing his entire Shadow Pokémon team, he carries a Swellow, Altaria, Aerodactyl, Manectric, Starmie, and Granbull.
