I should have died there. I thought I was going to die, but I didn’t. We didn’t die. There’s a reason for that. I’m going to make my life count. I’m not going to waste this chance.

Overview Image Gallery

Nolan Porfirio[1] is a member of Team BRNZ. Nolan and his team fight against Team JNPR as part of the Vytal Festival Tournament in the episode "New Challengers...". He is the last surviving member of Team BRNZ after the Fall of Beacon.


Nolan is a teenage boy with messy dark red hair and pink eyes.

He wears a deep sky blue jacket with a black hood and rolled up black sleeves, open over a white shirt with long, rolled up sleeves. A pair of sunglasses with pink lenses hang from his collar. He also wears a pair of ripped burgundy jeans, black shoes and black finger-less gloves.

Following the Fall of Beacon, Nolan was put into a depressive state before the novel starts, which physically showed. He was thinner than before, and his rose-tinted sunglasses couldn’t hide dark shadows below his eyes.[2]


After the Battle of Beacon, Nolan is shown to be in a depressed state, clinging on to the grief of losing the entirety of his team. He is shown to be a quiet person, primarily keeping to himself. However, after spending time with the Beacon Brigade and being given a new team, Nolan begins to grow more determined and confident, holding onto the grief of losing BRNZ to motivate him going forwards.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Nolan's weapon is a cattle prod or electrified baton, which he is skilled enough with to briefly incapacitate Lie Ren. He also has enough Aura to take a direct hit from Nora Valkyrie, who he had just charged up with his cattle prod, and another indirect hit from Nora without his Aura dropping below 15%.


Nolan and his team are students at Shade Academy, from the kingdom of Vacuo. He and his team journeyed to participate in the 40th Vytal Festival combat tournament, hosted by the kingdom of Vale. Nolan and his team were defeated by Team JNPR of Vale's Beacon Academy in the team round of the tournament.

In "It's Brawl in the Family", he is seen briefly in the stadium talking to Bolin Hori. In "Destiny", he is seen talking to Brawnz Ni whilst Velvet Scarlatina is snapping pictures of Sun Wukong.

After the Fall of Beacon, Nolan is the only surviving member of his team, who had been killed in the panic.
