Born and raised in Sunyshore City, Cyrus was known to be a good, albeit asocial, student, and so preferred the company of machines over humans and Pokémon. Despite being such a good student, however, he did not live up to his parents' expectations, and so felt rejected. Sometime after this, he decided emotions were the source of all strife in the world, and that only the elimination of emotions, along with spirit, could be the end of fighting in the world, which lead to his plan and actions which created Team Galactic. His grandfather, who lives on Route 228 in Sinnoh, regrets not taking him in during his time of need. He and Lexi first met when Cyrus, knowing of her and the history of Team Plasma, he ordered for his Grunts to abduct her while she was sleeping after she'd returned home following the events of Team Plasma in Unova. Cyrus began to manipulate her due to her memory loss, filling her head with fake stories convincing her of loyalty to Team Galactic, and that they are the company she has been with all along. Joining the team, Cyrus had promoted her to a Senior Admit in Team Galactic, having her carry out many plans in Sinnoh. However, Cyrus met his demise when Lexi discovers that he had lied to her, and defeated him with the help of Ash, and ultimately he was banished to the Distortion World using Girantina. Despite accepting his demise, Cyrus ominously revealed that he will someday make his ultimate goal into a reality, before walking deeper into the world.
The Alexis Saga
Cyrus appeared briefly throughout the series, through flashbacks. He often appeared in Lexi's times of peril, taunting her.
In Astral Eclipse, it was revealed that Cyrus is infact alive - having been acquired by Giovanni from an alternate universe in order to become apart of Team Rainbow Rocket. He battled Lexi, still scorned by her betrayal from the events that happened in Sinnoh. After being defeated, he then appeared briefly alongside Giovanni and Ghetsis when they were trying to escape the Team Rainbow Rocket temporary base at Aether Paradise. His current whereabouts since then is unknown.
