Heath (Japanese: デゼル Deser) is a member of the Sinis Trio, high ranking members of Team Dim Sun.
In the games
Heath's first role in the storyline is when he is sent to obtain the Yellow Gem from the Hippowdon Temple in the Haruba Desert, although he is first seen reporting to Kincaid with Ice and Lavana at the Oil Field Hideout. During the player's infiltration of the hideout, he sends several voicemails to them while posing as Keith. However, Sven notices that he continuously mispronounces voicemail as "vicemail" and mistakenly refers to missions as "mash-ups".
Heath is first encountered by the player after Cresselia is befriended and the Yellow Gem is obtained. As the player is about to leave the temple, Heath appears in a helicopter and reveals that he kidnapped Keith and used his Styler to send fake voicemail messages to the player in order to lure them to the temple. Heath forces the player to trade the Yellow Gem as a ransom and then departs after sending his Magnezone to attack them. The next day, Heath, Lavana, and Ice attack the Ranger Union, and Keith confronts Heath while the player goes upstairs to take care of Lavana and Ice.
In Altru Tower, Heath attacks the player with a Rhyperior, but it is soon befriended. After Ice is defeated, he calls Heath and Lavana to lend him their Pokémon for one last attack. When this fails, Ice and Lavana flee, but Heath reports back to the top of the tower. Although he is loyal to his boss, Blake Hall, he becomes afraid after Darkrai is awakened, declaring that he no longer wants to be a part of Hall's plans. Heath then returns to his homeland and is not seen or heard from by the player.
