REDRUM is a Nuzlocke by angelofcryinghearts on deviantArt. REDRUM stars Vesta Ray, a secretive 16 year old girl, born in Pewter City.
Two years previous to the start of REDRUM, Vesta made it to the elite four with a full team consiting of; Zane the male Charizard, Airon the female Pidgeot, Luna the Starmie, Milla the female Kangaskhan, Vine the male Victreebell, and Prince the male Omastar. Just as she was about to face the champion, Team Rocket intervened.
You see, in Vesta's universe, the Elite, and every major business, was corrupted. Controlled by Team Rocket, and their mysterious Leader, Giovanni.
Vesta and her team fought hard against the Rockets, but it was to no avail. Her team fell, one by one, until it was just Vesta and Zane standing.
So far on her new journey; After being banished from the Kanto Region for two years, she has been taken back to Pallet town, to live with her cousin Lucy. They have permitted her to have pokemon again, under the assumption she had learned her lesson. She took her new starter, Amaranthus the female Bulbasaur, the only starter currently available, and is about to set out from Pallet....

She named him Zane, and together they travelled the region, defeating gym after gym, trainer after trainer. Her actions catching the eye of Giovanni, and the members of team rocket. Reaching the league, Vesta over takes them, until she reached the champion....
