Character History

Despraino is a despair/rain/umbrella-themed Nighlok who has the ability to open a rain cloud above his victims' heads, causing them to encounter the most terrible misery of all: The loss of hope. He is armed with a spear that shoots bullets. He can open the umbrella-like object on his head to fly so he can have an advantage over land-ridden fighters. After Mike learns to master the forest powers, he is destroyed by a forest attack. He was resurrected as a mega-monster but he was then destroyed by the Samurai Battlewing.Forest for the Trees
