Diamond Pearl Cyrus
Fellow members of Team Galactic! Hear me! My name, as I appear to you today, is Cyrus. This world of ours is a crude one. In a word, it is incomplete. It has been, and always will be, a struggle to survive in this world. We humans and Pokémon are likewise incomplete. Because we are all so lacking, we fight, we maim... It is ugly. I hate the incompleteness. That we are all incomplete, I hate it with my entire body and being. The world should be complete. The world must change. Then, who will change it? Me, Cyrus. And Team Galactic. Yes, all of you. Together we pored over myths and exposed their secrets. Together we captured legendary Pokémon. And now, Team Galactic has obtained the energy to change the world! The power of dreams is within our grasp! Understand it, fellow members! My long-held dreamworld is on the verge of becoming reality. All those headed to Mt. Coronet, and those who remain here... Though our missions may differ, our hearts beat as one. Let there be glory for Team Galactic!
~ Cyrus speech to his members


Cyrus is the nihilistic main antagonist of the Sinnoh Pokémon games. He is the leader of Team Galactic and wishes to use the power of Palkia and Dialga to erase the universe, and remake it as a realm devoid of spirit.

However, he was not always this way. Cyrus had spent his childhood in Sunyshore City, where he was an excellent, if asocial, student. Despite his good academic standing, his parents refused to be satisfied, leaving Cyrus dejected and lost. These experiences led Cyrus to believe that emotion was the root of all strife, and that the only way to put an end to all conflict was to cleanse the world of its influence.
