Kiawe is a coolheaded, collected, and confident Trainer, and the most experienced of Hayley's new volunteers. He was attending school and helping at his families farm when the offer came in to volunteer at the Ranch. He then quit school to spend his time full time caring for Pokémon. Despite his stoic exterior, he is extremely hot-blooded and can be easily moved to tears. He is also wildly competitive, and becomes intensely motivated during competitions. He is a fan of Fire-type Pokémon.
