Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Heroic commander of the famed "Skull Squadron" assigned the monumental task of defending SDF-1. He is the classic definition of a hero. He is also able to transcend his heroic mold to be human and compassionate.
He likes to tease his friends, especially Rick Hunter, and create a feeling of general comraderie. His raw courage and skill as a fighter pilot is matched only by Maximillian Sterling.
