History

Lorenzo

He first appeared during Ash's visit to the museum where he explained the history of the city and the Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare or DMA for short. Ash got distracted by the presence of Bianca, whom he thought was the seemingly normal girl he had saved earlier, but rather Latias disguised as her. He was then scolded by Lorenzo for absentmindedly leaning on the DMA. He followed Bianca and Latias to the secret garden of Latios and Latias. Lorenzo arrived just in time to prevent Latios from attacking Ash and Pikachu, and allowed Latias to play with them. He showed Ash the Soul Dew's resting place, a pool of water. Lorenzo then explained that he knew the father of the two Guardians, and went onto protect Latios and Latias after their father's death. As Lorenzo, Bianca, and Ash left the garden, they cut through Lorenzo's workshop where he constructs gondolas.

That night, Lorenzo was later incapacitated by Annie's Espeon. He was later found by Bianca, and they rushed to the museum where they were captured and bound by Ariados. They could only watch helplessly as Oakley used the DMA, and Latios suffered the consequences. Ash, Latias, and Pikachu came to save them and stopped the DMA. Lorenzo warned Annie not to touch the corrupted Soul Dew, but it was too late for her to hear his warning. Annie touching the corrupted Soul Dew caused the DMA to go out of control, to ruinous effects. Lorenzo was present at Latios's sacrifice and was the first to realize that he had died. He later bid farewell to Ash and his friends as they left the city.

He was later seen in the ending credits with a construction crew, appearing to be either rebuilding or fixing the DMA in the museum.

Character

Lorenzo is a kind, wise man, but can also be stern and angry at times, especially wherever Alto Mare's history is concerned. Having witnessed the destructive powers of evil in the past*, Lorenzo holds personal responsibility for the protection of Alto Mare and its two guardians.
