The Sentai Province Army and the Exo-Force . Furrrgggggburrrrrfffff *herpderpdurrr* . The Sentai Province Army (SPA) is the fighting force against the Devastator Robots. Infantrymen (as seen above) are the valiant footsoldiers of the SPA.
"Takeshi was a little boy during the initial stages of the Second Robot Wars, having lost his mother early to sickness, and his father when the robots marched on the Sentai Province's 3rd district Primary Research Facility. He was found alongside his childhood friend, Sakura, whose grandmother had also perished in the attack, by then Lt Keiken, a young guardsman in the SPA, and future leader of the Exo Force. Takeshi was raised within the SPA compound, where he ate, slept and studied. As a teen, many of the mechanics would notice his expressionless staring at the AEGAKS 101 models. He learned about the mecha and how to pilot them and would eventually join the fight when the resurgent robot threat began the Second Robot Wars. He is highly competative with his friend Hikaru, who he original loathes, a quick temper, and sometimes overly passionate about his views. He also tends to be a sore loser." - Project AEGAKS Spearpoint Story
"Ryo is older than the others, and so remembers much more about the First Robot Wars. He was seperated from his family, his parents and three sisters, during an evacuation in the 1st district. It is unknown what became of his family, and though official records state them as dead, Ryo believes that they are still alive. Ryo was the first recruit to join the newly formed SpecOps unit Exo Force, bringing his father's old ZK-32b Mobile Defender with him, though later on this is destroyed. His mechanical skills are invaluable as he often does more in maintainence and repair than fighting, despite his being a skilled fighter. Ryo is very intelligent and extremely good with machines, however this tends to make him seem aloof and condescending. He tends to do as he pleases in regards to repairs and building his own equipment. He is extremely loyal however, and eventually warms up to the others. He doesn't get along with Takeshi very well, who dislikes 'his attitude.'" - Project AEGAKS Spearpoint Story
Medics are important parts of the SPA. Devastator drones are ruthless and violent combatants, and casualties of war among human populations are frequent.
"Hayato grew up on the streets, and was one of the lucky ones to survive. He was caught stealing when he was fifteen and was given a choice, imprisonment of military service. Hayato, ever the one for excitement, decided to choose the military service, as imprisonment didn't sound particularly interesting. He was placed in the infantry where he learned to be a soldier. Hayato display a constant disregard for authority, and has been arrested three times. In fact, Hayato was in a cell when the first battle he fought in occured during the second Robot Rebellion. During the war, Hayato was able to distinguish himself by commandeering a downed 101 AEGAKS and holding off the enemy single handedly. Shortly there after he was transferred to the Special Operations Exo Force unit, on Keiken's request. Hayato is recklessnand an adventure seeker. He doesn't get along with Hikaru, who sees Hayato as riff raff, and openly mocks Hikaru. He instantly fell for Hitomi, who at first doesn't recognize that he exists. He attempts to disregard Keiken, but Keiken has shown great skill in controlling him. Hayato is quick-witted and clever, streetwise, and indifferent to the others, at first. Unbeknowest to Hayato, he has an older brother who flies fighter craft. He learns later on as his brother joins the Exo Force to fly the new experimental Nueral link fighter using the AEGAKS system." - Again, Project AEGAKS Speapoint Story
Fiera Gabrielle is the pilot of the AEGAKS-706-Tskr "Timeseeker." She is a former West-Coast mercenary of the United States, who moved to the Sentai Province when nuclear bombs were dropped on the country. She worked with anyone who would hire her, then kill her last employer and steal the fortunes that her employers had. When the United States engaged in nuclear war, Fiera traveled to the Sentai Province among many other refugees. She lived in shadow for many weeks, not calling much attention to herself in the Province, for fear that someone would find out about her former occupation. Soon after her settlement, the robot drones rebelled. During the night when the legion destroyed much of the Province. Fiera was scarred by what she saw… Man’s machines mercilessly slaughtering innocents, men, women, children, and the elderly alike. She promised herself that after the war, she would enlist in the SPA to avenge the innocents. After her enlistment, many of the soldiers noticed that she was a talented combatant - a very talented combatant. The Exo-Force approached her a month into her basic training immediately after the SPA began weeding out potential pilots. She passed with a grade that was higher than any first-time pilots had ever gotten outside of the Exo-Force. Without hesitation, the Exo-Force accepted her into their unit. She was first given a very small mecha (a customized Uplink), but she demanded that she needed something with more firepower, and something that would harness her abilities well.
After many strenuous tests, Fiera was granted permission to pilot the custom-made AEGAKS-106-Tskr, or “Timeseeker.” She mastered the state-of-the-art weapons platform in days, under careful watch of Sensei Keiken. Many of the other Exo-Force members disregard her as being a part of the team and find her reckless and uncontrollable, but recognize that she is a very important asset in battle. She does not speak of her past to most, the only ones who know are those she thinks she can trust. She also takes a love interest to Lieutenant Raito Mirimashi, who leads her squadron.
"Hikaru comes from a very wealthy and influential family. As an only child, his parents ssaw to his education quite thuroughly. He was trained in the martial arts as well as diplomacy and specific skills as befitting a diplomat's son. Imagine his parents' dismay and shock when they had found that he had enlisted. His father forbade him, but he went through with it. Hikaru's father pulled strings to have his son assigned to the Exo Force, though he was accepted on his own merit. Hikaru has an unrequited interest in Hitomi. Hikaru is more refined than the others, who often regard him as snobbish. He is cool and level headed under fire, and puts priority on the mission objective. He is very good at tactics and strategy as well, and often serves as the unit's 'eyes and ears' on the battlefield." - Project AEGAKS Spearpoint Story
Well... Totally forgot to add the Lieutenant, Raito Mirimashi. Guess he'll pop up sometime later. All of my SPA/Exo Force figs needed some better quality pictures and more interesting looks. Hopefully this turned out to be halfway decent. I'm happy with them ^.^
