    Han Lao was genetically engineered by birth in a secret facility in Beijing China. Born in a bio tank with a row of other genetic newborns, they develop at the same time as an expectant mother. Once the baby was ready to be born, they're released from their tank and are sent to a nursery in any city across the country. Lao had never received a name during the process, but was called Subject 00319. On June 2, 2189, Three-nineteen was released from his tank and was officially born on that current date.

    319 was born a healthy baby boy, but during the process he was diagnosed with a brain syndrome that gave him a high IQ intelligence. When raised in a nursery to an orphanage, 319 would develop much faster than a normal child. His brain had functioned much strongly than the other infants, that at 13 months old, he began talking almost fluently and had interest in much complex subjects. While playing with toys one day, mostly with Chinese character blocks, he was able to spell out each of the symbols put together. Nurses and doctors were amazed that a 1 year old was able to be taught so quickly that they considered him a young genius. This would get the attention of a professor/scientist that became interested to adopt Subject 319 a year later.

    Scientist Han Cheng was amazed to hear about a baby prodigy being put up for adoption, who turned out to be a researcher for a technological AG-Facility which was a development headquarters of a pre AG-team, EG.X. Cheng was no father, but it would appear that he was more interested in Subject 319's brain than ordinary. Cheng signed the adoption forms, and was now the guardian of 319. 319 would now be officially named Han Lao, adopted at age 2.

    Lao was raised with his new father in the super metropolis of Shanghai. His father did take care of him like a normal parent during the years, but between it all, Lao had been tested with a polygraph machine while doing certain tests for his father. Cheng studied Lao's brain in research for his job at EG.X, and at a certain point, it would appear that he had found his answer.

    EG.X, once called EG.R Technologies in China had been on the verge of seeking new neural technology for a new AG-Craft that had been delayed from the FX300 in 2197. Their partners from Finland already made a craft design that would look similar to AG-craft by FEISAR, even some controversy was said that the plans had been stolen by EG.X to create their own by the FX350 league. As for China, since EG.R, their business was classified as their major plans were to create a craft that can be powered by the mind, and that racing would be more controlled by brain waves rather than manual controls. Their old plans back in the 2150's were similar to what they offered till this day, however EG.R's neural experiments back then were too relied on in the race commission as their pilots were too heavily augmented with cybernetic components and hardware implanted in their brains. Their known pilots, Paul Cheung and Alex Reece were never themselves after their transplants, and had suffered with major dysfunctions like eating, talking, etc. Even so they could never win a single race during the F9000 league.

    To make matters worse, EG.R's head director, Xao Chiu faced legal issues from the race commission and had suffered losses to his team's ships and their pilots going along with the great depression in the 2170's. However, when met by Xiosí head director, Sampsa Kovalainen in secret, the two companies would merged together in 2172, saving Chiuís business. From then point on, now called EG.X, Chiu's part of the craft development was still researching another breakthrough with neural net bonding technology. (Most of this research was never shown to public.)

    Chiu had led his team of researchers for any alternate breakthrough of the project, and for other cases, finding strong minded subjects that could use the technology. Leading back to Cheng and Lao, Lao was suddenly a test subject for EG.X throughout his childhood. As a teenager, he was then taken to the facility for complete neural testing along with other test subjects that were agreed to take part. As for Lao, he was a very intelligent young man, but was almost casual. While going to school, his progress was mind blowing of how quickly he solves a single problem in every test, being the first to finish out of every student in his class. In simplifying, Lao was a quick thinker and had a strong memory than average. After finishing private school, his father convinces him of taking interest in working for the EG.X facility, more telling by studying his mind, and as such possibly controlling an AG-craft for a career. Lao would agree to do so.

    The test subjects were volunteered for mind control experiments; basically, they've tested themselves by concentrating on controlling a miniature craft on a small built course inside a hidden warehouse. They were required to use a headset to be able to control a large AG-Craft while other possibilities were also becoming an official pilot for the team. Each subject was able to concentrate hard enough to move a working powered miniature craft, but it wasn't enough to be able to control a larger one. Each subject failed the experiment, going off course not being able to turn it or not move at all. When Lao was up next in line, they expected a lot from him, being bragged on by his father. While checking his brain waves, there were large spikes showing on the graph as Lao fluently controlled the tiny craft around the small course. He successfully completes the course without going off course. Scientist were stunned as to how stable his control was and immediately called him over for an opportunity to control an actual craft, needing his brain in doing so. Lao would agree to take part of the program, but by accepting, he was agreed to have brain surgery by placing an implant in his head.

    At a young age of 17 years old, Lao's operation turned out successful as he now has two ports on the back of his neck, including more devices on his right ear. Lao became a hybrid of a human cyborg with less augmented technology, and is still able to function normally having no damage to his brain tissue. With the use of the implants, Lao will be able to control a prototype craft with only his mind. EG.X had already built an official craft to compete in the FX350 league in 2205, but the craft was still manually controlled with levers and airbrakes pedals, only using the pilot's helmet with a transmitter to control bit of the craft. New Director at this point, Hua Chang, hopes to complete a craft that will be only controlled by the pilot's mind, having no levers or airbrake pedals on the finished model. Lao was the first test pilot to control a prototype, making progress for the team overall.

    The prototype craft will soon be known as EG.X's Fury craft, the FG.X. It had no levers in the cockpit, but had only one import that will connect to Han's back neck. Using their craft in a secret location, Lao was now on the pilot seat and became in control of the mind controlled craft. His concentration was very high on the meters, getting the craft to move and turn while presenting to the researchers. The researchers from Finland were jaw dropped seeing how the Chinese could have a human being meditate a craft with no manual controls. Unfortunately, things became uncontrollably as Lao began to lose consciousness with the craft, dropping it on the ground. Researchers rushed to him to see if he was alright, as Lao walks out of the cockpit with a migraine and blurred vision. He suddenly faints in front of the researchers and was immediately taken away by medical staff. The neural bonding on the craft was too much for Lao, too much concentration led to head pain and that the prototype was still under development. He recovers the next day and still continues to pilot a regular craft in the league. Their FX400 craft was still being used in most races as a manual craft, not fully presenting their projects in the public AGRL. For Lao however, his craft was specially built with the neural bond imports, yet he was recommended to still use the mechanisms on the craft, making the mind control systems as an option.

    Lao had competed in the league officially before piloting the prototype. Still under Rapier class, his performance on the track was average. Without the neural bond system, he was not as quick as expected and only relied on the controls and his helmet to at least control some of the craft with his mind semi-automatically. As for progress, he never got a chance to stand on the podium, not even the other pilots on the team could reach up to 3rd place. EG.X was still a team that could not catch up with the stronger and faster teams on the grid, but in hopes that they will soon dominate the team leaderboards. When travelling to Makana, Lao stayed mostly in the Chinese districts on the island, most notably in the business district of Chenghou Project. Lao was stressed by his performance and only needed motivation to beat the best pilots in his division. A teammate was necessary, until one day in 2209, someone had taken his stress away from the league.

    During a rough race day on the city's main track, Lao had stopped by at a local food joint for a quick eating. The Joy Noodles Bar was almost closing as the seats were already stacked up on the tables, while he was the last customer for the night. A female waitress serves him his bowl, and while looking up at her, there was something about her that looked familiar. Lao recognizes the young waitress as a young AG-Queen almost three years ago, when he was entering the pre-leagues in 2207-08. Lao saw beauty on the young model when seeing her from his craft's cockpit, feeling attracted to her. But during later in the AGRL she just suddenly disappeared, until now seeing her again working at a restaurant.

    The two spoke for half an hour, as the waitress felt comfortable and positive as she continued speaking to him. Before long, the waitress introduces her name, Yumi Nakamura, a Japan/Chinese-Makanian that had a mother that came to the island from Japan. However, she was raised Chinese and was born without a father. She had very low self-esteem living in Chenghou Project since she was born and had remained so when meeting Lao. While talking to her for a while, Lao forgot to introduce himself until Yumi mentioned it, walking out of the restaurant. The next day, he would visit Yumi again at the same restaurant, until it became every day for her. She was becoming more confident when seeing him again and continued to talk to him once more. Unfortunately for her, the visits began to fade off as Lao left the city on tour with the team, but eventually, Yumi was back counting down races and dancing on stage, confident that she'll face her biggest fears around public.

    Lao would reach more with the experienced pilots by 2210, moving on with the rest of the professional pilots on the 4th season in the FX400 league. His skills in the league would improve, reaching the podium spots around China and east Europe, but coming back to Makana, meant challenging races and aggressive pilots. He was reunited with Yumi, given the surprise of her interest of piloting a craft herself. During after hours after a raceday in Vineta K, sneaking his craft out of the team hanger, he would teach Yumi the basics of the craft without the team's supervision. However, after getting caught and discovering Yumiís flight by Chang with impressions, the classified craft would come back in the hanger, locked away until shipping back to an HQ in China. Yumi also heads to the country in 2212 as she became surprisingly chosen to train and race for the EG.X team.

    Lao took care of Yumi during their sentence to an EG.X facility in China, as her acceptance with the team was kind of a shaky one. The Chinese pilots became prejudice of her Japanese background despite her familiarity with Chinese culture. The team's craft, or at least for the Chinese pilots, were now fitted with the Neural Bond System. For Yumi, as initiation to the team, she too was implanted with the NBS, as her personality would forever change after her surgery. Lao then was partnered with Yumi in his squad, as he, she, and the rest of the EG.X pilots were quickly moving up on the team leaderboards. In 2215, reunited with the FG.X craft for the FX500 league, Lao and Yumi would become an unstoppable force in almost all standard team events. For Lao now relying on the NBS on his craft, improved and migraine resistant, he was now the most reactive pilot in the entire league, not until FEISAR figured out the team's main secret of their win streaks and strange behavior. The two teams would increase tensions during the current league, but as for their new partnership with Qirex, the team was also at war against Auricom Research Industries, attacking the Belmondo foundation under Qirexís new race principal, Nadia Elenova. Lao would do whatever his team desired, taking EG.X to rule the whole Race Commission.

    Han Lao would make elite rank by the 2217 season, earning 18 medals within 11 years of racing. (10G/4S/4B) His only recognition was that of his own country, but his popularity in the region alone was self-worth. EG. Xís involvement during the conflict however was mostly less, rarely getting into eliminator events in favor of standard combat races. Along with Mirage, they were not so aggressive like Qirex and or Triakis, though they do oppose the teams of the Belmondo Foundation. However, things would start to change when Tigron enters the scene in 2218. Still remembering them as EG.R and Xios, the rogue team would still target them in most events followed by every other team that gets in their way. EG.X, along with Lao would refuse to let an old nuisance take advantage of them. Theyíll fight against Tigron if necessary, but stay focused on defeating their main opponents as possible.

    The Nakamura family lived in Japan during the ages of AG-racing, but a girl named Yumi would become born and raised on the island of Makana in a Chinese financial district of Chenghou Project. Yumi's mother, Sayuki Nakamura came from Japan to Makana as a runaway from her parentsí home to live with Yumi's father, a Chinese Makanian living in Chenghou Project. Both of them were still as old as college students, about 21yrs old while the mother was 3 years younger. Both had met during the late 2180s, setting off to Makana, unmarried and were still a young couple, having no experience of taking care of a child whatsoever. Unfortunately, they would make a few bad choices, and what followed was Sayuki being pregnant with Yumi. When the she told the father the news, he became deceitful. In shock, the father didn't really care about the her, not even for the new baby only for him to cheat on Sayuki days after her confession. As the two argued with each other, the father would just kick out the mother from his apartment building, leaving her with no money at all and was homeless with her unborn child. Sayuki regretted leaving her country for a guy she didn't really knew, making wrong choices when first meeting him. However, her luck would not run out just yet.

    Sayuki had made some loyal friends when she came to the Island. After contacting them again and shocked to hear what had happened, they gave her another chance by renting the cheapest apartment possible, and was made a deal to live in one of the apartment complexes in the same city to get back on her feet and to raise her baby. Six months would passed, and it was when the mother gave birth to a baby girl on July 12th, 2191.

    The mother named her baby, Yumi, meaning Beautiful in Japanese. Her mother was barely turning 19yrs old when she first had her, and with the aid of the mother's friends on the island, she and Yumi will have another chance making a new life in the city they were in. As Yumi got older however, her mother never told her about her father. But even while being around public in Chengou, Yumi was always seen as a black sheep. She felt like she was living in the wrong city because she was Japanese, living in a more Chinese environment. She learned Japanese from her mom, but also had to speak Mandarin/Chinese, including some English. Parts of the island COULD speak her native language, but in Chengou it was very rarely, only for the Chinese language to be primarily spoken.

    As she went to school in the district, she wasn't too bright with everyone in her classes and was not treated respectably. She had low self-esteem, feeling hopeless for the things she did, and without much self-confidence, some students would make fun of her problems or choices. It was to a point where Yumi didn't want to go back to her school, and just stayed home to avoid her bullies. Witnessing all these problems she had, her mother couldn't bear to see her only little girl feel so afraid of the world. Without a father, it was almost difficult for the mother to take care of her. All her mother could say to her was: "You are strong, Yumi. Someday you will do things that others wouldn't be able to do. You must believe in yourself to achieve great things in your life, and you must not let anyone get in your way of what you believe in. So donít be afraid. Donít listen to the negative things they tell you at school. I believe in you." The conversation was in Japanese; Yumi had tried to keep her mother's advice, but couldn't seem to believe in herself hard enough if she tried.

    Through her years as a child, Yumi couldn't seem to amuse herself, but the one thing that did amuse her were AG-race events appearing in her city. Coming from her porch, she could hear the sounds of different race-craft passing by, echoing in her apartment as it lingered into her mind while growing up. One day she wanted to take a closer look at the event, but her mother didnít want her to leave outside her home, only to step out to do some errands. When the mother did leave out of the apartment, Yumi would sneak out and head over to a bridge or walkway above the track, few meters away from her home. Scooting her way between spectators and having a full view of the track below, she could see the racers zoom down the tunnel underneath just after the Stateap Drop. This was still during the FX300 Racing League, but had already entered in the early 23rd century in 2204. Yumi also looked at the billboard screens around the track, even noticing another young little girl dancing in one of them. It was FEISAR's AG-Queen founder, Mariana Sinclair, who was turning famous on the Island and her father racing on the track as a Veteran. Despite Yumi's low self-esteem however, Mariana would inspire her to become an AG-Queen, wanting to be just like her someday. Still, it would take her 3 years to gain that confidence.

    In 2207 at the age of 16, Yumi would become an AG-Queen for EG.X, while also hoping to turn around her low self-esteem. What it took to be an AG-Queen was to be a talented dancer to perform on a stage, including a model optionally which was only restricted to the young adult performers. But despite her wish of becoming one, Yumi still felt really shy around spectators, even while performing in groups she had no dancing experience whatsoever. She was completely the opposite of Mariana who was 3 years younger than her, still scared to express herself in front of fans of the AGRL. This becomes a big problem to her as she couldn't get over her anxiety, even while trying again it only made her back out during group performances. It still didn't help that even her peers from other teams would make fun of her, remembering bad memories from her childhood. She became sensitive and overwhelmed by her emotions, only to cry in front of everybody. It was to a point where she just couldn't fit in with the other AG-Queens. Only a few weeks in the sport, she decides to call it quits, finding some other place to at least get a job.

    Yumi would find employment at a Joy Noodles Restaurant in her city, deciding to work as a waitress only to pick up trash on the floor and tables, not interacting with anyone. Three years would pass and Yumi would still keep her job, but she still felt miserable only to isolate herself from the world around her.

    Going back to school however, it was only for homeschooling, and the only time she ever left her home was only for her job. Whatever money she earned, she would spend it on herself, some of which was noticeable like having her lip/nose pierced. While working after hours one day, one customer would come by to have a bowl of noodles before the restaurant closed. It was a young Chinese Pilot from EG.X, sitting down and waiting for his bowl while Yumi goes up to serve him. Looking at him, she notices the components and chords connected to his suit to the back of his neck and right ear, including two open ports that seem to connect to something else. She tried not to stare, realizing he was a cyborg. But the pilot would then look at her back, knowing who she was, being the shyest AG-Queen he had ever seen on his team. The 20yr old pilot just kept staring at her, only to make a compliment, getting her attention. He spoke to her in Chinese as she understood what he said and began talking to him in that language. As she came to sit down with him he began asking questions to Yumi like why she had left in the first place. She then explains her very low self-esteem to him, telling how her life was and the difficulties she had publicly when she was an AG-Queen. The pilot would then say he recognized her back then, only to compliment her again despite her flaws. The conversation would go on for half an hour only to stop when the Pilotís bowl was empty. After her talk, the Pilot could only give her advice, that exact same advice her mother had told her as a child. Yumi would thank him, but as he was about to leave out the front door, Yumi quickly stops him to wonder who he was and his name. The pilot then introduces himself, saying his name was Han Lao, walking out the door only to promise heíll be back to see her again. Yumi was surprised to hear the same advice from another person, but while thinking about it and thinking about the pilot, she started to develop a crush on Lao, despite his cybernetic components. He was possibly the only person in her life that was ever nice to her, having her affection. Yumi felt like she wanted to start all over, only to meet Lao again, growing some confidence.

    As Lao had promised her, Yumi kept seeing him again back at the restaurant, continuing to talk to him and was growing more into liking him. But right away after a couple of weeks, Han would leave Chenghou Project along with his team, but not after Yumi giving him one last hug goodbye. Despite being a cyborg, Han also showed affection towards her, having Yumi to feel better about herself. She already knew he was a pilot for EG.X, now thinking of being an AG-Queen again to cheer him on. She quits her job hoping to go back into the AGRL. However, as she went back home to her mother to tell her she wanted to become an AG-Queen again, her mother seemed to have lost hope in her after Yumi had left 3 years ago. In a sense, Yumi thought her mother would always believe in her, but instead gave up on her not knowing what to do for her daughter, thinking she will quit herself again. But Yumi was sure that she will not quit or be afraid, explaining about a guy she had been seeing at her job. Her mother would then freeze for a second, remembering when she met Yumi's father.

    Yumi continued explaining in Japanese: "He's very sweet and he believes that I can become an AG-Queen again."

    Her Mother disagreed: "I don't ever want you to meet this boy again."

    Yumi got confused: "Why can't I?"

    Her mother thought it was time to tell who her father was. She was scared that the same thing will happen to Yumi thinking the same type of situation will happened to her also. She was just like Yumi once, also very low self-esteem until she met a guy saying that he believed in her too. After weeks with her father, it was then when it happened, and how she had Yumi in the first place. It was then realizing her Father didn't really cared about her, treating her like an object and just threw her out of his apartment. Her mother didn't want to take any chances and decides to leave her at home. Yumi got upset, saying she already quit her job, but her mother got over-protective, saying she didn't want her to date anyone anymore or go back to being an AG-Queen, never to leave the building again.

    Yumi was now locked in her apartment; her mother had given up on her, in no way that she'll achieve in life only to shelter her. However, Yumi was now determined, and didn't believe that Lao would do such a thing to her. She would still have amounts of money from her job and plans to sneak out of her apartment in the middle of the night. Before running away though, she writes a note to her mother, telling that she was going back and felt really confident that she will stay this time only to achieve her life goals and doing what her mother had told her in the past. She ends the note saying that she loves her mother very much, leaving it on her mother's bedroom table. Yumi took the fire escape, and was now gone.

    Yumi would restart again back in Vineta A, for sure to make a comeback as an AG-Queen. Accepting herself back with EG.X, she then meets up again with Han Lao, who already was a professional pilot for the FX400 League. Han motivated Yumi and was gladly starting races for him on the starting line. She then moves herself in training for AG-Queen Dancing, working herself for months and dancing with groups until she made the most unlikely decision of going on stage by herself sometime later. She proved she could dance, but now she must face her biggest difficulty to do a lone performance, willing to do it. Her heart never beaded so fast in her life, almost losing her breath as she stood on the stage. She didnít want to look at the crowd, only to close her eyes. Without thinking of anything negative or possibly messing up in front of tens of thousands of people, all she wanted to think about was Lao, until eventually her song started playing, dedicated to him.

    Her first solo performance would turn out to be amazing to AG-Fans as a big applause roared around the stage as she opened her eyes to see many clapping hands. Sure enough, she receives her first sponsor from Lunar Parcs Incorporated and received a fair amount of earnings for her performances later on, becoming a star AG-Queen. In 2210, now at age 19, Yumi had a curiosity of EG.Xís AG-racecraft, talking to Lao about his ports in back of his neck. While some things were classified, Lao explains to her anyway saying that he himself was the control for his craft, that EG.X was perfecting neural bonding technology and that he was the breakthrough of their research, being highly intelligent and strong minded. Yumi was kind of amazed as Lao continued until talking about their teamís helmets having the neural bond hardware, even saying that the most novice pilots could at least pilot craft professionally while wearing it. Yumi then wondered if she could easily pilot a craft while wearing the helmet, even asking Lao for a possible free run on one of the tracks. However, Lao couldnít let her do that; the team of EG.X was exclusive when it came to piloting their craft, let alone recruiting. Only the best pilots can pilot their finest race-craft, and Yumi was completely inexperienced. Somehow Yumi would convince him to at least try it out once or more, finding a way to bring it out without EG.X crews from noticing one day. For the first time, she would sit in the cockpit of one of the craft but began to feel nervous again. Perhaps she went abit too far on her self-esteem after her progress as an AG-Queen, now pretty much asking for a career as an AG-Pilot.

    Behind EG.X's lines, Lao himself would teach Yumi on certain tracks theyíve visited, sometimes going to a course by themselves having full privacy to practice on a certain track in Makana, mostly Vineta K. While Piloting Lao's EG-X's racecraft wearing their helmets, Yumi felt a strange bond to it, almost feeling like she was connected to the racecraft. Lao's helmet was like a wireless link to the craft reading her mind. On a practice run, she had an idea of how to control the racecraft, almost like she was thinking of what to do on a certain part of the track. It was fact that EG-X had installed a direct neural bond computer to their craft to the pilot's helmet, reading the pilot's brain waves to telepathically control their race-craft. However, the mind control Helmet was just a partial replacement to what EG.X China was working on with the mind control technology, only for the helmet to give a weak signal from a pilotís mind to a racecraft.

    Yumi got a first taste of piloting the team's craft and continued to train herself with Lao. She slowly but surely was able to pilot an AG-race-craft on her own, flying for a few weeks until the team had caught them using the craft without permission. Hua Chang, the teamís Chinese Principal of EG.X was also there with his people at the time as they caught his experimental pilot, Lao looking over the track. They see his craft being flown on the track, wondering who was using it and asking for him/her to stop. All Lao could say that it was his girlfriend piloting his craft, having no pilot experience whatsoever. Chang was almost furious that his craft was being flown by someone inexperience nor from EG.X, until he realized how clean her flying was. Lao would then say that the helmet was at least helping her out, only for Chang to see that even an individual with lack of pilot skills can race with the NBS. He immediately wanted her to stop and to bring back the craft, only to give her a possible opportunity. However, this meant traveling west to mainland China to their main training facility if she wanted to race with them. Yumi didnít know what to say, only for Lao to recommend it to her, believing she could excel with them. She would agree to train with them, having nowhere else to go after running away from home anyway.

    In 2212 currently living in China, her skills would become worthy to EG.X. 1 and half years of training including with Lao, she now received confirmation from the team and becomes an official pilot for the late FX400 Racing League. However, there was some distinction between Yumi and most of the Chinese pilots, including the female pilots from her row. She felt uncomfortable by how the pilots stared at her as her badges showed not only Makana, but also Japan. The Chinese don't show appreciation to the only Japanese pilot in the row, including some of EG.X's Korean pilots. Almost going back to her ways, Yumi tries to ignore the pilots' discrimination. By now, she was partnered up with Lao which became a relief to her, being much more comfortable with him and were possibly the only teammates that were a couple on the team. While her relationship grew with him, the opposite goes towards her partner's backup pilot Tae Chung-Ki of a Neo North Korean radical group. He would show extreme prejudice towards her due to her origin nationality of Japan, and unlike Lao, he was more emotionless and more augmented with a cybernetic eye. Already starting semi-professional, Yumi began racing with Rapier class pilots in current race events back in Makana. Teams like Qirex and Piranha would sometimes give her a run for her money, but that didn't stop her or her esteem to be able to confront them, especially from younger elite pilots like Mariana Sinclair.

    When it came to racing in her home city on Chengou Project, she sometimes had a feeling that her mother was watching her overhead of the tunnel. It's been more than 3 years since she had seen her mother, and already was starting to feel homesick. Knowing that her mother may be upset at her for running away, she still went back to her old home during a raceday, knocking on her door to her apartment. When her mother opened the door, she was just glad and emotional to see her daughter come back home, seeing a teenage girl turned into a fully developed young woman. Her mother deeply apologized for not believing in her, realizing how confident her only daughter had turned out to be and how happy she was. However, Yumi couldn't stay for too long and must head back to race. She still says goodbye to her mother once again, but she promised to come back whenever the League came back to her city.

    In 2215, age 24, Yumi was now heading for the FX500 Racing league, now piloting EG.X's exclusive Fury model race craft, the FG.X. The next step now takes her even faster, entering in Phantom class tournaments with the elite pilots of the FX500. Yumi would now show that she's not what she use to be and will not hesitate to the much stronger pilots out there including her own team, showing that she has what it takes to be a confident pilot. With lead pilot, Han Lao on her side, their team was almost unstoppable in any team races, most of the time winning gold in standard team tournaments. However, there was something about her that was different as she was never really herself when interviewed by fans. As EG.X still remained classified to the public, there were rumors spread that the company had finally took control of her, a victim to neural brain implants as she was now against her own free will and was permanently in control of her craft illegally. But that was again claimed a rumor. Still, the process of neural implants was true in that matter as Yumi was now seen with imports in the back of her neck since late 2212, and was now put with her group of pilots that were competing with cybernetic components including Lao. She would also stop being an AG-Queen after the process, becoming more secretive. Yumi did act different in personality; she was never emotional or very low self-esteem like before, as if they were removed from her brain entirely. The new exclusive craft for the cyber pilots had no stick or pedals as everything was now complete mind control, yet it still caused concerns to the race commission, including regulations. All in all, it took Yumi a long way and a lot of courage to bring herself this far of becoming the best of the best female AG-pilots in the current AG-League. Like her mother had once said, even if it means becoming a cyborg for a racing team in the FX500 racing league.

    In current 2217, Yumi continues to race for EG.X only it was now permanent with her new components. Most pilots from EG.X who didnít volunteer for the Neural Bonding Program were still able to transfer teams, yet the program was still controversial to the race commission controlled by the Belmondo Foundation. Meanwhile, Qirex and their allied teams of the conglomerate including EG.X were fighting for the commission, going to war in the league with Auricom and their allies supporting the Foundation. However in 2218, one infamous team would make a return to the racing league, attacking every team in general.

    Overall, though earning elite rank from EG.X in 2217, Yumi had only earned 12 medals in her 6 years of racing. (5G/3S/4B) She hopes to earn more in future events.

    Since the boom of AG-Technology growing around the world during the 2040's, North Korea still remained isolated to the world around them until discovering their rivaled neighbors from the south taking hold of the technology imported by Auricom Research Industries. The North had never seen AG-Technology before, stunned of the advancements that were used for public and racing. However, by the 2050's now possessing blueprints of AG-technology from China, The North has spent their economy developing AG-advancements behind the lines of the AGRL, only to instead be used for military purposes. Unfortunately, by spending most of their economy building the technology, their economy and people suffered. Throughout the 2050's. North Korea's population was even more in a poor state, given that their government has now abandoned them over the development of their own AG-technology. While they've relied China, Russia, even the South and US of assisting their people throughout the years, the assistance had stopped ever since the AG-revolution, only to be vulnerable to South Korea of liberating the peninsula.

    However, the DPRK wasnít going down without a fight, starting a regional war in the peninsula and invading Seoul. However, they underestimated the Southís firepower, using Auricomís technology to drive back the invading forces despite the company opposing the idea with their technology. Though North Korea would have used nuclear weapons, their leader probably wasnít crazy enough to use them after all, especially with both U.S and China breathing down both sides of his neck. Either way, they would still lose the war. There soldiers were also in worst shape, only for most to surrender in the frontlines, suffering enough from their ĎGreat Leaderí. In less than a month, NK would surrender in 2057. The DPRK finally gets a regime change after so many years of surviving. The South would also take control of the AG-Technology that the North was developing, only to be taken to Auricom, now forming a partnership and sub HQ in the South Korean city of Seoul. Capitalism had been established to the north with Korea united as one nation, only to have it be fought over again by the next century.

    In the early 2140s, a radical Korean group would grow up in the northern region, having leaders influencing Korean populations in the region that were anti SK government, including acquiring arms, resources and funding from Neo-Soviet crime Syndicates in the Russian regime, making some of their profit from the radicals. What would come to be was the Neo-North Korean Organization. With their growing power, civil war would break out in the northern region during the 2150s, only for the NNK to seize control by the next decade. This was during the F9000 era, with the groups taking territories around the north, holding an alternate DPRK red flag of the red star, removing the blue & white stripes on their design.

    Neo-North Korean radical groups would still manage to seize control of the North throughout the years including the 2nd great depression from the fallout of the F9000 league. They would soon have interest in the AGRL using the sport as a way of war against the South and U.S. aka, Auricom, taking AG-Technology from regions of China and Russia to redevelop their own AG-Craft to sneak into the League and to take down their enemies. When the FX400 came in 2207, the NNK felt ready to go after them, only to send one of their pilots to officially compete in the league legally. However, the Korean Federation would manage to get intelligence of their plans. In doing so, they send undercover pilots to race for certain teams in the racing league in an attempt to stop the movement from eliminating the team or others in general. While this was going on, U.S. base Auricom continues to go after Qirex.

    Soo Min-Hye Bio: Soo Min-Hye would be one of the undercover pilots to join with Auricom. Though her early life and history is classified, her birth date was labeled confirmed on February 14th, 2184 in the same city of Seoul South Korea. In 2207 with the opening of the FX400 league, Min Hye was recruited by Auricom at age 23, staying in the academy for over a year. She made worthy of competing in the FX400 league and no one suspected her as an agent continuing her objective. However, there was one other thing about her that seemed odd to the pilots of Auricom.

    Min-Hye travels to Makana in continuation of the league, still contacted by her members back home on a Mindcorp arm held communicator. A certain person she was assigned to go after would enter the league, targeting supposed Neo-North Korean, Tae Chung-Ki, believing to be involved with something due to the suspicion of him always winning races he entered and the eliminations of only Auricom AG-Craft competing. Like Chung-Ki, Min-Hye entered the league with some secrets in her Identification. However, Min-Hye never won any races, nor came in the top 3, but oddly, her skills looked elite leveled. She joins with American pilot, Tyrrell Byron, showing no suspicion of being an agent or something else, forming a small partnership. Few years later in 2212, Tyrell would then meet another American pilot, a 22yr old female named Rachel Vega. Rachel would show a friendly introduction to Min Hye, also forming a relationship with her. While communicating with the two American pilots, Min-Hye would speak partial English to them, but was sometimes intellectual. She was able to communicate with them during races, but most of the time she remained quiet behind one of them, mostly entering in team races while stopping supposed NNK extreme pilots who entered the tournaments illegally. Even Tyrrell or Rachel got suspicious with Min-Hye, not realizing they were secretly targeted by the NNK radical pilots, not even knowing that she was protecting them behind their backs.

    Between the years 2209 to 2212, Min Hye had encountered some of the cloaked pilots that snuck into races to sabotage pilots out on the track. Yet her biggest target, Chung Ki was still her main objective, knowing he was leading them in races and winning every race he entered. Out of the extremist she had stopped that were normal or somewhat cybernetic, Chung Ki was more augmented, easily spotted by his cybernetic eye. Chung Ki would manage to destroy some Auricom craft in races, despite the pilots surviving. Witnessing these encounters, Min Hye became obsessed to capture him, while Chung-Ki also tries to terminate her from stopping him or the other extreme pilots. To spectators, they see them like a huge rivalry, as they continued to fire weapons at each other on the track, oblivious to what was really going on. Unfortunately, with the EPR in their ships, able to eject out before destruction, Chung-Ki would escape while he was eliminated. His ship would get destroyed, but will always come back. Even Min-Hye found it difficult to stop him in a race, and taking action outside was too risky for her. As for the cloaked stealth craft, they were able to teleport out, both pilot and ship, leaving no trace of them.

    Min-Hye will not stop till Chung-Ki is taken captive. While agents racing with Auricom and few other teams continue to stop other North Korean Extremist sneaking stealth/camouflage AG-craft in the league, Korean military forces try to shut down the remaining groups from the North Korean Region. In 2213, news about them were exposed, having one of their craft debris left on a track. EG.X Finland and China claimed they were not involved of the NNK's plans nor Qirex, as the stealth ship that Min-Hye took out had EG.X's technology, including Qirex, and surprisingly Triakis in weaponry. Though claiming that the groups had somehow stolen their technology, there was some suspicion and rumors that EG.X, Triakis, mostly Qirex were forming inside jobs with the NNK groups, in order for them to eliminate all of Auricom's, including AG-Systems' AG-craft. Even during a personal war between Qirex and Auricom by 2215, showed some more suspicion as to Qirex possibly doing illegal favors throughout the next few years against the opposing teams and the Belmondo Foundation. However, there was no confirmed evidence of inclusions from the 3 suspected teams, despite Auricom claiming it multiple times. Either way, the NNK were terminated from the North Korean region since 2213.

    Min-Hye was going after one goal and one goal only; nothing else was on her mind other than stopping Chung-Ki. With him also exposed, now withdrawn from the team and banned from the league since 2213, he would unfortunately escape again, only this time he had disappeared from the team and the whole island. Min-Hye believed he was still out there on the track, but no traces of the NNK were ever reported up until the FX500 league. However, Min-Hye's teammates began to have more suspicions about her years on. Considering her weird behavior to her squadmates by the way she talked and or acted, only one suspicion was that she may be more than just a pilot undercover.

    Eventually, Min-Hye would find Chung-Ki racing again in the 2218 season of the FX500 Racing League, only this time racing with a rogue team.

    When North Korea's economy had collapsed and unable to accomplish their own AG-Technology in the 2050s, the north was liberated by the South Korean government after an economic crisis and small regional war heavily affected the North Korean region in 2057. Though the peninsula was liberated for over a century, the region would wage civil war by the 2150s between the Korean Federation and NK radical groups which led Neo-North Korean extremist to seize control of the north once again in the 2160s. This was during the time when a Neo-Soviet crime syndicate took over the Russian Government who had supported and funded this radical group in the Korean peninsula, still ideal to overthrow the Korean Federation and reunify what they thought should control all of Korea. Throughout the 2nd Great Depression, the north would still stay intact throughout the decade while the south slightly suffered economically. While shots were never fired since, the NNK would spread their propaganda around by members in the southern region, but was quickly removed from South Korean cities only for the members to be pushed back in the northern region, sometimes causing violent outbreaks of the two sides. The north side of Korea became a danger zone for a South Korean to even walk through. Though regular Koreans lived in the northern region, it was still dangerous to even walk outside, concerned they would get shot by passing vehicles or get mugged. Certain areas and cities were controlled by Neo-North Korean extremist, waving their alternate DPRK flags without the blue & white stripes in their territories. The capital city of Pyongyang was heavily controlled by the radical groups, and what happens there was entirely unknown.

    Oddly, the NNK had strange goals also involving the AGRL, as some intelligence revealed them transporting & possessing AG-technology including weapons to the North Korean capital city, as if they were forming an AG-team. What anyone doesn't know, Neo-North Korean extremist had been taking and training newborns to pilot their AG-craft. They were indoctrinated to become trained elite pilots to race with any craft, personally entering or even sneaking themselves in the current league to take down supposedly Auricom Research Industries, while also winning races. There were no confirmed reasons as to why they were after the AG-Team or to win races, despite Auricom being from the US, and established a sub HQ in South Korea. Auricom did give support to South Korea in the mid 2050s as they used the technology in order to assault the DPRK in terms of weaponry and AG-military vehicles. However, Auricom USA never wanted to use the technology for military purposes other than racing due to their ideology, but SK was desperate otherwise. To the NNK, it was war rather than racing. In the beginning of the 2200's, they successfully built secret AG-craft in a factory base of operations in the North Korean region. The facility was kept secret even to the people of the region, managing to have blueprints of EG.X's craft to be built. However, in process of building their own craft, they still needed specific components. Unfortunately, they will only get the rest of their components by other specific teams. Somehow, they would receive technology that is considered illegal in the AG-Racing League.

    Tae-Chung Ki Bio: Tae Chung-Ki would be one of Neo-NK's special pilots to race for his once rogue country. Though there was an unknown date of his birth, there was information that he was born in a nursery, taken away from his parents to be indoctrinated and becoming an elite pilot for a current League in the AGRL. Chung-Ki was trained overtime as a child, being strapped onto an AG-craft performing incredibly on any test track to compete in any future FX league. His main objective was to become the very best in the league, and for the NNK Organization to eliminate most of Auricom's current pilots. Chung-Ki would show his extremism and Ideology as he presents his hatred to the apposing team and the Korean Federation. In the 2200's when the Organization formed a factory of operations in Pyongyang, he was soon taken for cybernetic enhancements to improve his performance. Though EG.X China does the same thing for their volunteered pilots, the organization would abuse the technology. Their pilots were forced to become cyborgs, removing all emotional traits and replaced with their ideologies and main objectives, currently not in control under their free will. After complete conversion, Chung-Ki was now a complete cyborg, ready for the opening AG-league.

    Chung-Ki would make his first appearance in 2209 competing legally for the FX400 league with EG.X. Unlike most pilots, Chung Ki was the least applaud from the lineup of EG.X pilots, but he didn't care about fans or fame as his main objective was right in front of his cockpit. For the past three years, Chung-Ki never shows any doubt in races as if he knew heíll win any race he entered. In some tournaments, he would easily win any race with no trouble whatsoever. This would show a lot of suspicion to the race commission, even more strange when all Auricom craft get eliminated whenever he enters. Chung Ki was also an independent pilot of EG.X, yet he does team up with Chinese EG.X pilot, Han Lao. Very rarely however, these two would race along each other, as secondary pilot, Yumi Nakamura from Makana only races with Lao in most team events. Chung-Ki would show no respect for the female pilot, as her origin from Japan gives him complete prejudice towards her. To him, Yumi was also an enemy, but his squad never needed him, yet HE never needed them.

    There were reasons why the NNK were building their own AG-craft in the first place. Unknown to everyone, the organization were secretly sneaking in stealth race craft in race events where both Chung-Ki and Auricom were competing. Jamming camera and radio frequencies, their craft would be sneaked in on blind parts of the track, staying invisible by cameras and spectators using cloak. The weapons they were holding were also cloaked, going alongside sticking them on any AG-craft to either explode, jam, or shut off using EMPs. They sometimes use their cloaking devices to disguise themselves as other team race craft, fooling pilots by attaching a cloaking device on the original pilot's craft and cutting off their communications. If necessary, theyíll try and turn teammates or allies against each other. However, their main goal was to destroy any Auricom craft possible and letting Chung-Ki win races. Also optional was destroying other team craft supporting the Belmondo Foundation. This was before Qirex declared war on the race commission.

    Auricom had no idea that Neo-NK extremist were out to shut them down for whatever reason. However, some South Korean pilots were aware of the threat. There were a couple of South Koreans who were secretly agents racing undercover in order to stop them. Chung-Ki's bitter rival and enemy from Auricom, Soo Min-Hye was secretly racing as a pilot for the team by the Korean Federation, preventing him from succeeding and knowing plans from his organization. She would try to reveal, eliminate, and capture the stealth pilots who helped Chung-Ki, though the stealth craft somehow had EPR technology that could teleport both their craft and pilot from public eyes. However, at some point in the league, she had managed to knock out the device from a craft, revealing and exposing the craft on the track. The NNK would get exposed in the AG-League in 2213. Spectators were surprised, but were suspicious, as the stealth craft had an EG.X chassis, thinking EG.X themselves were also behind this. More investigation also revealed that the technology and weaponry had components that belonged to Qirex and Triakis, though the three teams claimed no involvement, thinking their technology was stolen by the organization. However, Auricom suspected that Qirex may be highly involved, though no evidence claims that they were.

    Chung-Ki would also get compromised, only to escape during the same event of the revealed craft in Makana. His craft was also destroyed, but has shown he had ejected/teleported out of the race. Unfortunately for Min-Hye, he was not seen in the team hanger bay, revealing no trace of him from team staff or around the Island. Despite his disappearance however, EG.X would withdraw Chung-Ki from the team and be supposedly banned from the racing league in 2213. Ever since then, no signs of the organization were ever reported by the beginning of the FX500 Racing League, only to be shut down by SK forces in the northern Korean region just days after his exposure. To Auricom pilot, Soo Min-Hye, she still believed he was still out there on the track, not leaving the team or sport to continue finding him. However in 2215, Auricom and Qirex would wage war with each other for the race commission.

    While the NNK may have been destroyed, it would appear that Chung-Ki would make his return to the racing league by the mid FX500. That same time a rogue team would also make a return to the league as there was a possibility that he may be racing with them for the new season, both coming back to finish the job.

    Born in the deserts of the Emirates on May 17th 2172 in Dubai, Sabak had been with MAGEC/Mirage since the beginning in 2202. He was one of the many pioneers to find and establish the company in the Middle East and from around the world along with their founder and director, Sheikh Mani Zayed, having his own Philosophy for the technology. In late 2205, MAGEC would announce their racing team, Mirage to compete and test for the upcoming FX350 League. Sebak contributes as a test pilot for Mirage, learning and controlling the AG-craft in the Facility's test track until he decided to make it his long-term career as a professional pilot. Unfortunately for the Team, the technology couldn't live up to the expectations, suffering their ships to lose power or not being able to move. It took another year for them to perfect their race craft, yet the team couldnít keep up with the other competitors. Even so, they were also competing against their neighboring rivals from the African Nations.

    Sebak was one of the few pilots to bring Mirage up to the rankings with the other teams, having the most experience and knowledge to the team's AG-craft. Other Mirage pilots in the lineup like Egyptian, Malik Al-Tamassal, and Turkish, Cahit Kaetíyrun, would earn Mirage their reputation and medals throughout the FX400 league, though Sebak would earn more medals out of all of them. Mani-Zayed would consider him his personal favorite AG-Pilot, choosing him to compete for the Season Final Championships against the other team's elite pilots throughout the years since 2209.

    Sebak had mostly harness his skills back in the main Headquarters, until meeting a courageous female pilot who had surprisingly came to the facility. No woman was allowed or has ever walked in the Facility or hanger bays until one Egyptian woman had the guts to face Mani Zayed himself, having permission to pilot their AG-craft. Egyptian newcomer, Farah Al-Qasimi was the only woman in the Arab world and team to enter in the AGRL as she was still being treated disrespectfully, including by Sebak himself. However, over a year, Farah would prove herself throughout the facility, beating the other trainee pilots and getting the attention of Sebak to race her. He thought she was joking and was too optimistic in racing the greatest pilot or a ďmanĒ on the team, thinking he could easily outrun her on the test track. However, during the race, Farah would manage to keep up, including passing him on the last lap. Sebak tried to run her off the track close to the finish until she quickly slammed the airbrakes, causing Sebak to run off course instead with her crossing the line. He had underestimated her, yet was utterly impressed by her piloting skills. Though Farah was just a Rookie, Sebak gave her his respect and acquires her to become a wingman for the FX400 Racing League.

    Throughout the FX400 with the team still climbing, Sebak would continue to earn medals from tournaments or championships, including many sponsors and giving some alliance to teams Harimau and Icaras. Assegai on the other hand instead would become an enemy, including his arch rival from the team, Gabriel Khumala. Khumala would usually end up in back of him, yet Gabriel's aggression would push through and even knocking out Sebak's AG-craft from the race, taking his position in few tournaments. Though only having Farah as his wingman, he would eventually discover Indian pilot, Damien Avandi, also choosing him for a teammate and squad. The three pilots would give their best to come in first place for the team, proving themselves an obstacle for other squads in team events. Mirage would become a stronger team than ever before, preparing themselves for the next gen league and developing their new craft. With Sebak giving most of the team's reliance, it was clear that he will continue not to disappoint them. However, his participation in the SFC would not last long.

    Following the 2214 season after the SFC, Sebak would announce his retirement from the championships before the closing season. Another Emirati pilot, Obald Meer would take his place for the SFC up until the FX500 Racing league including South African, Likhapa Ramotshabi in 2216, a female pilot. Mani-Zayed still favored Sebak over anyone in the company, but he rather give new elite pilots a chance in the SFC, regardless how experienced his last pilot was. Sebak was ranked veteran around this time, only to continue racing in standard events from the FX500 league, moving on to there. He was also a test pilot for the teamís new craft, the Scarab-2, more bulky and organic than their predecessor from the FX350 and 400 league. After successful tests back in the facility, Sebak, would proudly fly the new craft as presentation for Mirage for the inaugural 2215 season.

    That same year, Auricom and Qirex wage war for the race commission. Both teams would bring in their allied teams to fight one another, one of which was Mirage siding with Qirex. Mani Zayed wanted a piece of the race commission, mostly opposing Van Uber throughout, seeing them as ďsuperciliousĒ and to show what his team craft was capable of in response to their team principal, Helmut Van-Uber. However, Mirage wasnít too aggressive for that matter, but somehow they supported Qirexís new race director/pilot, Nadia Elenova and her aggressive influence she intends to establish if claiming the race commission. It would appear that Zayed was more interested in wealth than anything when the team met with Qirex not long before the race war started in the racing league. Whatever theyíve promised, Mirage was set on taking down the teams of the Belmondo Foundation. Unfortunately for them, their African adversaries remained neutral, leaving Van Uber to be their main targets during the AG-race war who supported Auricom and the Foundation.

    Sebak Abou-Gazia would lead the charge in the fight for the race commission, currently challenging Van Uberís new AG-pilots in the standard tournaments of the 2217 FX500 season. When it came to eliminator events, Mirage would have the upper hand against the German team with their sportsmanship being their major weakness. Mirage would race dirty if necessary, but even they would still keep their pure race style, mixing up their stances in any race. Overall being with Mirage since the beginning, Sebak has at least 15 years of experience from both test pilot and the SFC championships, all the way to standard. He has earned 28 medals from his span of 12 seasons, including one platinum bronze medal from the 2209 SFC. (14G/10S/4B) Despite his middle age, Sebak is still in shape, showing no slowing down in his racing skills whatsoever. By the time of the next season however, his skills may soon be challenged now when Tigron joins the league in 2218. Both he and Farah would have to prepare to face this new opponent, not sure of what this rogue team has in store for them.

    Farah Al-Qasimi was born on June 13th, 2186 in the city of Cairo, Egypt. She was a girl with curiosity and ambition and wanted to do whatever amused her. However, she was limited to some of the things she could ever dream about due to her regionís restrictions on women. Farah was also a young Muslim, as her mother had converted to Islam after marrying her father coming from the UAE. Both her and her mother wore open face hijabs, but despite wearing one and following her beliefs, Farah was kind of free spirited in terms of makeup, though she never wore any in public.

    Farah had never heard or seen AG-Technology in her life, in fact the entire Arab world including Egypt was forbidden of the technology. Since the Anti-Gravity Revolution in the mid-21st century, Middle Eastern oil barons had lost fortune from their crude oil exports to the west/eastern worlds, as most of the Arab countries banned AG-technology only to curse the name of AG-founder, Pierre Belmondo for their now worthless oil. All of that changed when an Emirati, Sheikh Mani Zayed had introduced his intentions and his own philosophy of a new AG-Team across the Middle East in 2202. However, Mirage performed poorly in the first few years of its development while some of the Arab countries still refused the technology. Farah was 16 when she heard of it, and of course it amazed her. As for her parents, especially her father, would have different thoughts of the technology. By her twenties, she moved out of her home, but was still guarded by her mother most of the time. However, talking about AG-Racing was forbidden in her parents' home as her mother would not let her talk about it around her father's presence. Farah was confused why, yet her mother would not explain. In all, she still dreamed of piloting a craft one day.

    Despite her restriction to AG, Farah would still have major interest to become an AG-Pilot when she became a young adult. But to her mother still, that was impossible, and to her father, that would be unacceptable. It was then she now wanted an answer, as her mother finally explained why. Though AG-Technology was approved after MAGEC (Mirage) formed a sub HQ in Egypt, including few other countries in the Middle East, their AG-Racing philosophy was only a major profession limited and dominant only to men. Not a single woman pilot was on their racing team nor worked for the company. It was considered a very strange and a non-normal act that a woman would pilot a fast, floating machine despite the many women pilots who were racing for every team around the world.

    But Farah saw nothing wrong about it, "If women from other parts of the world can do this then why canít I?" Farah questioned.
    Yet her mother refuses, saying it would get her in trouble. "It may be okay in other countries, but here it isn't." Her mother tries reasoning with her.
    Farah: "But that's not fair, women here should have the right to compete in this sport."
    Mother: "But FarahÖ"
    Farah interrupts: "This is not the past. We can be just as good pilots just like these men and women around the world."
    Mother: "It is not like that, Farah. Here in Egypt and other countries around us, things are just different for us, we can't use anti-gravity technology, do you understand? You can't compete for this "Anti-GravityÖ Racing". Your father will not approve of this if he knows you'll want to go and race."
    Farah: "But Mother, IÖ"
    Mother interrupts: "Women here aren't allowed to use AG-Technology, Farah. Please, understand that."
    Farah: "Not like this, ... I just want to follow my dreams, and do what I want to do. They can't keep treating us this way... we have to do something about this."
    Mother: "I'm sorry, Farah."

    Farah felt constrained by everything around her now, not because of her religion, but as of women in her country not being able to race in the AGRL. Things of what her mother said she just couldn't understand why she couldn't use anti-gravity technology, wanting to know who was really behind all this and not blaming her father, realizing most women around couldn't use it. As for AG-Racing, it was not normal for her to do so. Farah just wanted to pursue a dream and interest, to be as strong like the men racing for Mirage. While her mother didn't have a choice, Farah sets out to a MAGEC Headquarters now built in Cairo. As she entered the building in the lobby, not a single woman was there as the men in line just stared at her, stunned to see a female come into the building. She felt no awkwardness as she came to the front desk. Farah asks to be registered as a pilot for the team, but the person at the front desk would make an excuse that there were no slots open for her. She tried reasoning and even complained. Mentioning that she wanted to be a pilot out loud, the men behind just laugh at her as the front desk warns her she'll be kicked out if she doesn't leave immediately. Still complaining, she was then taken out of the building, being pushed out of the exit by security. Farah got angry, wanting to complain to the head of the company. Unfortunately by doing so, she needed to head to the city of Dubai, where the main Headquarters of Mirage was located.

    There was no way she could travel to the United Arab Emirates, and by doing so she would require a male guardian. She needed to find another way to get the attention of the main head of MAGEC to hear her. She would send a message towards the main headquarters, in complaint to why women in the Middle East cannot pilot an AG-race craft. Not only had she sent it to the company, but to the internet as well, writing an article. Her article gets some attention, not only to pilot an AG-racecraft, but the use of AG-technology in general. She writes, ďMAGEC is in control of AG-Technology in the Middle East, and though women are able to drive, and fly planes, why can't we also pilot anything that floats?Ē Eventually the head of the company would find her article. Mirageís team principal, Sheikh Mani Zayed, comments. "Though women can drive a car, pilot a plane or pilot an AG-craft in western continents, not every woman will not be in use for this type of technology. By all means I forbid letting a woman, even from any country, to pilot anything from my team garage and or any of MAGECís AG transportation. Even if the Belmondo Foundation or the Americans from Auricom want to change my philosophy, they will not change my mind, including this female individual who wrote this preposterous article." While reading his comment, Farah was outrage. "Why can't women at least use the technology for transportation in these countries? Why can't at least the most experience female pilots from other countries join with this racing team?" Farah didnít want to take this sitting down, and by doing so, she plans to protest at MAGEC's headquarters in her city.

    In early 2211, with the followers she had received by her article including raising money, they set out to pass flyers all around Cairo. Billboards were also used all around the city, and there were other groups protesting for her cause. Farah was surprised to see many people follow up on her opinion, and she was leading them all under her voice. Her mother was stunned to see her daughter lead a movement, as for her father, it wasnít too settling. Outside the MAGEC headquarters was a mob of protesters. Farah was in control of a microphone chanting her statements, including a group of women and men repeating whatever she said. Things were going just find until police started to come out of the building, scaring the mob away and silencing the movement. But with Farah, they captured her and was kept in a nearby jail for a couple of days. She had no idea why they decided to capture her, locking her in a cell without even saying anything. Farah thought it was hopeless. The oppression was just too strong in her region, lying down on her cell bench almost in tears. Giving up the thought that she would become an AG-Pilot, she was suddenly met by two men in white thawbs in front of her cell. They took her out of the building, where she was suddenly being taken to an AG-limo where they took her to a nearby airport. Farah thought she was being kidnapped, but seeing where the Airship was taking them surprised her even more. She was heading to the UAEís mega city of Dubai.

    Farah was free to walk around the Blimp Airship, yet the men in white still watched her. When they came out of the clouds, they were high above the city of Dubai, and Farah was astonished to see it from high above the air. It was much more beautiful looking than back at Cairo, and there were plenty of AG-transportation all over and under the tall skyscrapers. When the Airship finally landed, Farah was where she thought she would be, as they took her to the main HQ of Mirage's AG Excellence Centre (MAGEC). She was taken into the main lobby, stunned by how clean and modern the place looked, but was immediately put in an elevator where she was taken up to the main office. She steps out, only to see the men in white go right back down. A voice at the end of the room calls her over, seeing the office chair on the opposite way of the desk facing a window showing the outside.

    When Farah sat down near front of the desk, the person behind the seat began talking to her. "SoÖ Youíre the young woman that started this little movement back in your home country? I must say I was kind of impress for what youíre trying to accomplish here. Well?.. look where itíd brought yourself"

    Farah would guess in her mind who was talking to her. As the chair began to turn around, she saw another man in a white kandura. This man was none other than Sheikh Mani Zayed himself.

    Zayed Continued: "You See, this company works quite differently in a way than you would expect. All of my people who come here have a certain trait, which I'm afraid you may not have. And that, you go on out thinking you have what it takes to control this technology and be an AG-Racer. (Chuckling) And now you've gotten all the women in this region riled up to support your ridiculous cause. No matter how much they protest, they will never change my mind. As for you Iím afraid, I donít think Mirage needs a.. ďBroadĒ, a ďDameĒ, in our lineup."
    Farah: "Are you saying I don't have what it takes? What every woman cannot take? You must believe we still arenít capable of using AG-Technology, while really youíre only blinded by your own prejudice. These women CAN handle this, they want to use this, they want to feel how itís like to control something that can take them off the ground. How can you not see that?"
    Zayed:"Your followers have no Idea what type of skill it takes to use this technology, especially as a racer. Itís in fact that women in this region are not ready or too afraid to do such a thing. Did you see any around the facility? I think not."
    Farah: "Only because you and anyone else prevent us to do so. Look out in the world Zayed, I've heard so much about women using the technology years before you came around, how many women have used it to race more than anything else. And you're just gonna sit here and laugh, thinking I won't be able to make such an achievement. We've already proven that we can."
    Zayed stayed quiet while Farah continued: "There's a reason why you brought me here other than to gloat from your mouth."
    Zayed:"You have lot of ambition miss Al-Qasimi, even for a Muslim women, you show much of courage for an extreme sport as a career, and the only one to choose this path while others are too afraid of what they could handle."
    Farah:"You're right Zayed, I am the first woman in this country and from mine to choose Anti-Gravity to race. And I know I can handle it."
    Zayed: ďHow can I be sure of it? How will I know you wonít just quit by the time you get on my finest craft in the facilityís academy? My men are capable of handling themselves. But as for you, I have doubts. You may be the only woman Iíll choose for this team, thatís not to say I expect a lot. I still believe youíre making a big mistake.Ē
    Farah: "Mistakes are why we must learn and try again. Whatever youíre people, your pilots, or this sport tries to push on me, I wonít give up on the pressure so easily. Not coming this far for it to happen.Ē
    Zayed:"HmmÖ Very well, starting tomorrow, your first day of training starts next morning, just make sure you get some rest, I have a feeling you just might succeed. (Sarcasm)"
    Farah: ďAnd I have a feeling youíll be eating your own words once I become the first woman in the region to become professional.Ē

    Farah was recruited by Mirage; for the first time, a woman was now walking in the hangers of the Dubai MAGEC facility. The next morning, out in the test track, Farah was out now wearing the Team's uniform, making her way to the test craft out on the course. Still wearing a hijab around her head, she puts on her helmet and climbs onto the cockpit. Unlike all of the team craft with an actual cockpit, Mirage had a dome right in front of the pilot seat, showing the pilot from head to toe. Farah showed some confidence, but began to get very nervous once the cockpit sealed closed. She tries to remember the controls as she was put on the starting line, waiting for the signal to go. Sure enough she was given the order, but took her seconds to find the trust, and launches off. Dealing with the turns like all trainees, she forgets to use the airbrakes, going out of course yet improving herself on each lap. After a few days of training and dealing with the male pilots, Farah was now use to it, but her other big challenge was racing head to head. It was then she met experience pilot from the home country, Sebak Abou-Gazia, showing the trainees his skills and techniques in order to succeed from the academy. While walking up on the lineup of pilots, Sebak would eventually come up to Farah, almost shocked to see a woman on the testing grounds. Meeting him for the first time however, Sebak showed no respect for her, opposing her opposite gender. All of that would change however when Farah slowly gained experience and wins, racing against the other trainee pilots from months on and soon managing to get an impression from Sebak himself, now having each other race head to head for the first time.

    Other pilots and crew began to crowd around, surprised to see a female go up against the very best in the Facility. If Farah were to win, she would sincerely prove herself worthy of the team, including proving to Zayed who was also watching from the crowd. As the race began on a 10-lap test course, Farah struggled to keep up. Not giving up the opportunity, she follows Sebak's race line and immediately catches up on the 8th lap. The men on the stands watch in amazement as she began to overtake Sebak. However, he began to race dirty, ramming her aside as she passes, forcing her to fall behind him. Only meters from the finish, Farah desperately pushes herself to overtake, creeping up on Sebak as he sees her Mantis craftís arms left of his cockpit. He goes for a big ram swinging his craft towards her. With quick thinking, she hits the airbrakes as he misses going off course having her take the finish, stunning everyone that saw. It was a mark in Arab history; Farah was now the first Middle Eastern Female Mirage pilot to compete in the FX400 racing league. As a token for her win, she gains Sebak's respect, offering her to become his wingman in the league. Farah couldn't believe what was happening as this being the greatest moment of her life.

    In the year 2212, Farah now travels out west to America for the opening of the next season. It became a surprise to other countries and America to actually see a Middle Eastern Woman be on the team. It was also shocking to all the women back home seeing her as a confirmed pilot for Mirage. When Farah was standing up for women back home to use AG-Technology, they didn't expect her to cross this path with it. From America to Makana aside from her experience, she became an interesting topic to fans and was always stopped for interviews, being sponsored by a number of companies including MAGEC itself. Farah was yet to become the very best, but had received many offers as she continued on. She also becomes a fan to one pilot currently in the league, Sicilian Triakis pilot, Liana Morelli, becoming an influence to her as well as meeting her in a race at some point. Though both don't understand each other, Farah showed alot of friendly and respected gestures to Liana that in some sense they became secret allies while racing. Despite Farah being under Liana's League and skill, she would always learn from her.

    Farah had never yet won a tournament, but in 2213 competing for the Speed Freak league tournament, Farah would earn bronze, while later earning Silver on a Dropzone team tournament with Sebak. She was yet to earn Gold, but was destined to do so. Following 2215 in the FX500 tournaments now racing Mirage's Scarab-2 craft, Farah was now reaching a higher speed class continuing on Rapier. In her relationship with her partner Sebak, both continue to support each other, followed by Indian pilot, Damien Avandi. She had been away from her home for so long since coming to Dubai that she didn't realize that her parents may have worried about her since. She would come home after a closed season, seeing her mother just glad to see her daughter after 3 years, yet her father looked disappointed. She tried to explain, until she was told not to go back, leaving an unfair statement to her of how successful she had become. She tries to convince her father to still continue on, but continue to argue, only to say that he keeps preventing her from doing anything and stops arguing only to walk away in frustration. Moments after, seeing her alone, her father decides to let her continue racing. While she's now a woman and not a child, including following her beliefs on her own, Farah was able to go back to Makana on her own without a guardian.

    As the years went on by 2216, Farah would eventually win her first gold medal. While media continued to interview her, it was likely she will inspire other Arab women to become race pilots in the future. At some point, Zayed would make an un-expecting announcement that he would accept a few more female pilots for his racing team. Even though he was still prejudice towards women, he was only pressured by Farahís growing popularity in the Middle East and few other locations around the world. As such, Zayed would poach and accept former Assegai pilot, Likhapa Ramotshabi from South Africa, entering her for the remaining FX400 SFC championships. Few years before however, Zayed had introduced 3 more pilots from his JX division squad, two of which were young female teen pilots. Farah would become an instructor for Qatari sibling pilots Alqamar and Alshshams Raqisas, most known in the Middle East as the ďSand DancersĒ. The sisters would eventually become the teamís best pilots in the JX racing league by 2216, trained and bonded by Farah herself along with Turkish pilot, Cahit Kaetíyrun. The two young females would also go on to show their dancing talents as AG-Queen performers for Mirage, gifted for their popularity in par with Farah, showing their female might on what was once a male dominant team. No matter what Farah did in the league she kept making history, as she would continue to race on in the FX500 and so on up until retirement. A leap of faith had let her to become the most successful pilots for Mirage and MAGEC industries, going where no Arab woman has gone before, becoming one of the greatest female pilots of the current league and AG-History.

    Despite the title, Farah Al-Qasimi was low skilled compared to AGRL elite female pilots like Liana Morelli, Nadia Elenova, and etc. Still, for an Arab woman it was a big feat for her and her region to reach at least professional rank. Overall her popularity was in par with her heroine, Liana Morelli, but unfortunately her accidents in the 2214 SFC would cause her to have a premature retirement. Farah however would still get inspiration from the Sicilian Triakis pilot, going for elite rank in the FX500 league while also dealing with the conflict between teams of Auricom and Qirex fighting over the race commission. Her skills will also be put to the test along with her teammate, Sebak when dealing with Tigron Enterprises by 2218. As of current 2217 with 5 completed seasons, she has earned more than 10 medals in her entire racing career. (3G/4S/4B) Farah will continue to set examples to her home region, with more Middle Eastern women competing with other teams in the current league.

    With her skills continuing to grow and earning more medals, sheís expected to reach elite rank before 2219.

    Born in Mumbai India on April 27th, 2184, Damien Avandi was involved in the sport as an engineer for AG-craft during the FX300 league. Damien was somewhat involved working with FEISAR during the league, including Harimau in Southern Asia. However, his engineering skills were mostly used from outside the league, currently aiding for the amateur pilots and their own AG-craft on makeshift or abandoned circuits. Not only engineering craft, but also test piloting. Damien had experience controlling smaller craft since he was a teenager, testing his work after completing building up an AG-craft for a pilot's test run. His first experience with a large craft took place in Nepal on an abandoned yet still in use AG-track of Sagarmatha. Piloting a FEISAR F7200 model craft for an amateur event in the country, Damien would experience a faster and durable craft for the first time. Though seeing, even working with some professional teams on their craft, there was never a point where he had ever flown a faster and larger machine over the small and slower craft he was use to. His intentions would then lead him for a racing career during the end of the FX350 league.

    Though having involvement and familiarity with teams, FEISAR and Harimau, Damien chose to take professional training out west of India to sign himself with Mirage in the UAE. With Mirage's Scarab-1 craft being a balanced machine in terms of performance, his skills would play a major factor during training on the courses of the MAGEC Facility in Dubai. His skill and performance was very well received by the team, and after half a year in the Facility, Damien was now officially racing for the FX400 league.

    Damien raced independently throughout the FX400 racing league and has made a few top 3 finishes against the pilots he was matched with. His positions would place him with the professional pilots in the league along with earning sponsors. Sure enough his progress then gets the attention of an elite pilot on the same team. During the mid FX400 seasons, Damien would get discovered by Emirati pilot, Sebak Abou-Gazia, currently partnered with his Egyptian female teammate, Farah Al-Qasimi. Sebak was more impressed by his racing over Farah, that in most team tournaments, the two would compete together on winning the Vertigo league tournament trophy for their team. However, Farah was still dependent to Sebak, and he himself pledged to be her secondary pilot after their race dual back in Dubai with Farah becoming the winner. Damien was only a backup pilot to Sebak, but either way, he continues to race by himself in most race events.

    Throughout competition in the league, he does meet with Harimau again, only for his team to be allies. His only ally from Harimau, Jusef Suyanto, formed not only an alliance but also a friendly relationship outside the track. However with rivalries, it was unconfirmed who he had matched himself throughout the racing league. By the beginning of the FX500 league in 2215, Damien would continue to rise and win more future events on his lone career. Though meeting again with Sebak for more team races, he will eventually become a secondary pilot for another squad in Mirage by late 2217. He also engineered for Mirage since the FX400 league on both team AG-craft or his own, taking a part time job back at the MAGEC facility. He then became a developer of the teamís new craft, the Scarab-2, currently racing it in league events of the FX500. Overall, Damien still continues to race for the upcoming years into the current gen racing league, soon to reach elite rank in his racing career by 2218.

    Medal count: (6G/3S/4B)

    The Island of Makana isn't just known for its national sport of AG-racing, it was also known for its natural looking artificial environments. One of the most greatest landscapes in Makana were the Sebenco mountain range, coming across the lower region valleys of Blue Ridge which was possibly the only spot on the island that isn't a big city. The highest peak on the island was Mt, Sebenco, measuring over 7000m in the air, almost a quarter shorter than Mt. Everest. It was also the spot of two AG-Tracks, Sebenco Climb and Sebenco Peak. Few meters away from Mt. Sebenco lay a mountain based city of Citta Nuova, as one of the high altitude cities on the island. It's also the birthplace of one devoted pilot currently competing in the FX400 league, both mountain and all of nature.

    Originally born with Surname "Wong", Kaida was born on February 16th, 2180 on the coldest and highest parts of Makana in Citta Nuova. Her family was from Hong Kong despite her first name being Japanese, given by her mother thinking it was a beautiful sounding name. Her parents came to Makana during the second Great Depression, living in a home where she could see Mt. Sebenco from her bedroom window. She always saw it in her room or outside anywhere around the city. When she got older, she started falling in love with the mountain, amazed by its wonders of nature in hopes to one day head to the summit of its peak to see everything around the island.

    While living on the high parts of Citta Nuova, Kaida always lived in a freezing environment in the clouds covering the mountain sides below the city. Temperatures reached from 20 to 60 degrees F, even during summers. Not only it was so cold, the air was also slightly thin due to the high altitude of the city. But Kaida was so use to it, that her body never shivered to the freezing air and breathes quite normally, adapting to its elements. She eventually does leave out of the city and first visits the Makana Valley of Blue Ridge National Park just below the mountains. She then sees vegetation for the first time in 5 years when she was born. All around her was surrounding grass, shrubs, trees, animals, etc, even seeing Mt Sebenco out in the landscape. She didn't just fell in love with mountains, but all of nature itself, as Kaida would rather live down in the valley then up on Citta Nuova. She also realizes how warm and rich the air was, too use to the environments up in the mountains, even so, it was a new experience for her. This became her interest when she went to school, in hopes of becoming one of nature, studying plants and caring for animals. However, she was completely different out of every student in her class, commonly referred to as a "treehugger". Not having too much friends due to everyone's fond with technology and anything that was high tech, other students just felt odd to be around someone that seemed to "live in the past". Kaida however didn't care what everyone thought of her, continuing her obsessed interest during high school as an environmentalist.

    During the time she graduated, The FX300 Racing League was already in effect around the whole Island. While Kaida was not interested in races in Makana, one team in particular got her attention. Southern Asian, Harimau International, became the team she rooted for; a team that was originally a humanitarian organization coming from Malaysia. Harimau started out aiding the Asian continents during the 2nd great depression, which then on they had made their funding in order to bring back certain animals that have been extinct for over a century. Most commonly was the tiger, which became extinct in 2100. In their efforts they successfully genetically breed two tiger cubs as their experiments became highly reviewed by the press, bringing back an animal that has never been seen for over 80 years. This also got the attention of FEISAR director: Nicolo Testa, who had made a visit to the tiger reserves in Sepang. Malaysian Writer, Mrs. Suruni was a big fan of FEISAR since the days of AG-Racing and was surprise to impress the current director of the company. Testa had made series of meetings between other FEISAR officials giving interest to the heads of Harimau International and Malay businessmen by setting a branch in Malaysia for certain development, but it was declined to take part of the country for their own. Instead they provide assistance for a new starting team in Malaysia. With the FX150 arriving in 2185, FEISAR was finding out that some of its' old locations from the F9000 still had technology and skilled personnel who didnít have a place on FEISAR's new team due to the team member limit enforced as one of the new rules. This would apparently turn Harimau into a newly fledged racing team instead, thanks to current engineers that were sent to Malaysia who began building a brand new ship that could enter in the upcoming FX300 Racing League.

    Kaida had interest in volunteering for Harimau, not for their racing team overall, but for their side projects in particular. Unfortunately she had to travel to Malaysia as she leaves her family back home in order to be close to the team's headquarters. While Entering in Malaysia in Sepang, Kaida was fascinated by the country's vegetation and culture feeling right at home. Staying in Malaysia for a couple of years, she was beginning to study about the past animals that had disappeared in the world. Out of every animal she had read about, one animal in particular had got her attention. Searching through pages of the animal files, she was introduced to the panda bear, a white and black furry mammal originating from eastern parts of China. Kaida thought it was the cutest animal that nature had brought to planet Earth. However their existence was vanished by the 2100's. Kaida would do anything to bring this animal back, even if it meant racing for Harimau's AG-team.

    While Kaida continued research on the panda, she was given news by her family back home in Makana that her mother was having another baby. Though excited to have a baby brother/sister, she was still busy and obsessed of her research and still stayed in Malaysia instead of coming back home for her mother. By the beginning of the 23rd century, Harimau eventually stopped being a racing team for a couple of years near the end of the FX300. They focused back on global projects to repopulate the world with genetically engineered tigers, having successful results by their breed of tigers in their reserve. Feeling like she had the chance to present her project, Kaida made meetings with Mrs. Speed and Suruni followed by a couple of other researchers that were interested in her work. Kaida was for sure that the biology sounded factual, even acquiring bones of caniforms that may have the DNA foundation to be built upon. But as she presented further, her audience felt that it sounded illogical. The company wasn't ready to bring back this black and white mammal, as the genetics were too rare to re-genetically engineer, requiring a fortune to find and create such efforts.

    Kaida would eventually put her project aside, and decides to come back home, being away from her parents for over 3 years. She soon then meets her baby sister for the first time, given the name Azura. Azura was 2 years old when Kaida came back home to Citta Nuova in Makana, already forming a bond with her big sister during Kaida's stay with her parents. However, Kaida wanted to live out of her parent's home, already knowing she had taken care of herself back in Malaysia. She decides to own a small house down in the Blue Ridge Valleys. After all, she was living under nature.

    Kaida continued to focus on her research, but just couldn't find any way for the researchers back in Malaysia to fund for her pet project or use her DNA findings, dealing with stress. To relieve her stress she would turn to Yoga, heading to the hills for routines while also seeing the whole landscape. Eventually however, she would get back to work but would still get stumped from her personal research. Just when she was about to give up, she then looked at an old magazine of Harimau's AG-Racecraft on the front cover. The Bio-fueled racecraft became such a technological breakthrough that the team performed very well during the FX300 league. Kaida was amazed of how the company's racing team built a successful craft that won a number of races during the first couple seasons of the racing league. She was also surprised on how they use the race winnings to fund for their projects in the first place. Kaida was desperate to fund her research; without even thinking, she had an insane choice to become an AG-Pilot for the team.

    Harimau soon began forming media attention around the world because of their racing team, and eventually started to make a comeback for the upcoming FX350 league in 2205. However, this meant that the team needed to redesign their current craft, unable to compete until 2206. Between all that, Kaida came back to Malaysia, surprising the Harimau Organization that she wanted to compete for the upcoming league. Kaida sincerely had no idea what she was getting into; competing in such a dangerous sport just to bring back her favorite animal became senseless to the researchers that knew her and that her desperation will get herself killed on the track having no experience. But Kaida took her chances and begun her pilot training on a local AG-track in the same city of Sepang.

    While piloting Harimau's FX300 craft for the first time, Kaida was completely confused with the controls, and at times, she almost crashed the craft entirely. Nervous of what may happen next, they tried to remove her from her seat, but Kaida refused to do so and gives herself another go. She eventually gets use to the craft's controls, but was strictly required to keep using the craft's pilot assist function. She was still a trainee since the second season of the FX350, continuing in 2206. At the time, she was turning 26yrs old, and it was when Harimau had introduced their new ship design for the current league back in Makana. She officially competes that same year, only able to compete in Venom class races, but her inexperience couldn't get her into much of the AG-Tournaments, some of which were the UpLifT league race events.

    For a couple of months, improving her racing skills, Kaida would slowly grab fans attentions, and sure enough was offered with her first sponsor by certain companies. Browsing for a main sponsor, there was one sponsor she clearly had a complete dislike in particular. Taking a look at 2nd Skin's offer, she noticed a cross eyed panda head on their label, feeling very offended that the clothing company would use fur skins on their products due to her love of animals and their rights, especially if it's her favorite animal. While this was half true, the company never used real fur for their products anymore, but Kaida was still disgusted by the company, refusing their offer in sponsorship.

    Throughout the first few seasons of the FX400 league from 2207, Kaida became very skilled piloting the Harimau craft. She had made a couple of amateur wins during her first few seasons in the league, but as she moved up to a different speed class, her racing experience began to be challenged. Her new lead squad pilot, Jusef Suyanto became a big help to her, challenging the more technical circuits while she came in the top 3, having him take first during team races. Eventually, Jusef also helps Kaida with her skills in pre-races. She was soon becoming a professional class pilot, and was also gaining more experience on the much higher speed classes in every race. Even so, she was now almost mastering her local tracks around her home, including Sebenco Climb which was challenging even to skilled pilots. Kaida continued to race on Sebenco Climb and Peak during the years competing, even while she was still very inexperienced. However, she was so dedicated to master the 2 tracks that she decides to change her surname to Sebenco as her pilot name and for her love of the mountain overall. Her new last name lives up as her fans began to call her by that full name. What she didn't know was that her first name was actually a Japanese term meaning "Little Dragon", as such, she was also known in Japan as the "Little Dragon of Mt. Sebenco".

    In 2211, she was soon met by a FEISAR junior pilot, Loraine Johnson, beginning to join with the Harimau team. Both female pilots respected one another, as Kaida shows and introduce Loraine to the Harimau craft. Both set out on the track of Blue Ridge, as Loraine gets use to the new craft which was no different to FEISAR's. As Loraine now became part of the team, Kaida congratulates and welcomes her to Harimau and her new squad, joining Kaida and Jusef within their squadron. While Kaida asked her why she changed over to Harimau, Loraine didn't want to talk about it as she would avoid the question. Being thoughtful to Loraine however, Kaida decided to make her a special gift. She was kind of skilled with clay when she was a young girl that she shaped a mold of the Harimau Logo and using a safe liquid metal alloy to fill it, turning it into a necklace. As Loraine's new AG-Queen outfit and Pilot uniform was about to be sent, Kaida included her gift along with it. Since then, Loraine had always worn the necklace and outfits, feeling dedicated and part of the new team, or at least she tried.

    While she followed behind her male teammate, Kaida was responsible to lead the teen British pilot by her side. Her experience in the league started to improve by 2212, already racing as a professional and competing in tournaments for the team. She then now had experience with the more technical circuits, including on her home track in Citta Nuova and already Sebenco Climb. What started as desperation of funding for her favorite animal, became a full fledged career. Kaida began to receive lots of media attention all around the Island of Makana and all over Asia, becoming one of the best loyal pilots on the Harimau team. But despite her years of competing and being on the top 3 in a few races, it was still uncertain to her if she was close to raising funds for her pet project throughout the FX500 in 2215.

    Fortunately, the funding for Kaidaís pet project began to raise interest back at Harimau HQ, already gaining recognition to support the genetic biology of her research. What was already been said was that a couple of panda cubs were being developed back in the genetic labs in Sepang, and the results were positive. Kaida was excited and happy to hear the results of her pet project, hoping to see the world populate also with genetically engineered pandas thanks to the help of Harimau International. She continued on as a pilot during the FX500 league in 2215. But despite her success in the later years, she would eventually retire in 2218, leaving Jusef to lead the team while avoiding a beating from a returning rogue team, mostly targeting them during the mid FX500 racing league. As a gift for her retirement by Hi, Kaida was given a baby panda cub to raise in her own home. However, this doesnít signal the end for her family racing in the FX leagues. Her actions would inspire her little sister, Azura, to eventually compete in future racing leagues way in the mid 2220ís.

    Born outside of the main city of Magelang Indonesia, Jusef Suyanto was raised in a Buddhist lifestyle by his father, turning to the religion during the events of the second great depression from fallout of the F9000 racing league in 2170. Most of Asia was heavily affected during the 2170s, suffering economic downfall which put the Asian population in a very poor state including the rest of the world. People had suffered economically during the decade, and no one wanted to ever mention anti-gravity since then. For Jusefís father, he wanted to be enlightened from all the suffering, finding it by turning to a Buddhist monk when staying at the Central Java region of Indonesia. At the time in mid-2175, the father was already engaged while seeking the philosophy, and at some point he was already wearing an orange robe and shaved his head. The mother was also encouraged, though it took her time to get use to her husbandís new lifestyle including seeing him meditate in his rearranged office in their small apartment, not believing much of it. Still, the father was willing to have a child, and sure enough in 2176, Jusef was born, named by his Mother.

    Sadly, Jusefís mother passes away by a sepsis infection 3 years after his birth. While the father was devastated, he continues to meditate over his loss while now the only one to take care of his young son. From then point on, Jusef would follow the footsteps of his father. Starting around 5yrs old, he practices Buddhism alongside and continues by the time as a teenager. He had already adopted the beliefs and had found his enlightenment at a young age. Jusef visited the Borobuder temple many times with his father or by himself, interacting with the other monks in the location including taking part in ceremonies/meditations at the temple itself. When it came to employment however by his 20s, finding a job was kind of difficult in Magalang.

    Though things have gotten better in the world through the 80s and heading to early 90s, including a comeback of AG-racing overall, as a monk, Jusef was not satisfied of the employment in his small city until one day witnessing aid groups from an organization coming from Malaysia. The aid groups were from Harimau International, openly helping the southern Asian population since the great depression, while mostly on a mission to repopulate long extinct animals across Asia and other parts of the world. Though Jusef didnít pay much attention to the genetic engineering side of Hi, their other environmental projects looked to be beneficial. If it could end suffering across Asia, then he was on board with the organization. However, what fascinated him was the clean and bio-efficient breakthrough of Harimauís bio-fueled AG-Racecraft. Jusef took interest; despite an odd choice for a Buddhist, who says they couldnít have at least some fun every once and awhile on a floating craft?

    Jusefís purpose of becoming an AG-Pilot wasnít for money or fame, but rather for charity. Harimau would be known for using the racing league as a way to fund and donate their race wins to the charitable, though other professional race teams found it to be ridiculous and considered the team as just a ďfadĒ during the FX300 league. During the first few seasons however, Harimau would prove to be a solid race team including achieving it with their clean H2 and H3 racecraft. The more success they could bring, the better the chances of a better world environmentally, at least in their minds. Jusef believed it was possible, taking his training and test piloting crossing over to Malaysia in Sepang, housing the teamís main facility.

    Jusef joins Harimau International in 2194, a year before the announcement of the FX300 Racing league in Makana. Traveling and living on his own in Sepang, he enters the facility feeling confident to test pilot a craft for the sake of good will. At the time, Harimau was still perfecting their H1 prototype craft for the upcoming league. Jusef would take his training first in zone mode, testing positive health beforehand, being able to pilot an actual craft. When VR training was completed passing the final zone mode tests, he was ready to pilot an actual craft. However, Harimau only had the prototype to test pilot, completing test flying and was on standby to manufacture their H1 model. For the trainees, along with partnership from FEISAR, they were lended their X1 models for pilot training on the test track a couple miles from the main facility. Jusef would test pilot the FEISAR craft for half a year until moving on to Harimauís officially built craft, the H2. He, along with new pilots would train until the inaugural season in 2197.

    During his time in the facility, Jusef would also take time to meditate in the facilityís Asian garden next to their tiger reserve area. By 2197, he would get chosen for the opening season taking place in Makana along with other rookie pilots graduating from the Sepang facility. In Harimauís first group of new pilots was also English, Cassie Green, Indian, Sekhar Sahib, and Singaporean, Ronald Wong Zi Leung. The four pilots became the original first group to compete in the first season for Harimau International. Throughout the first few seasons, the team would become successful, establishing themselves as part of the professional AG-Teams. As for Jusef himself, he world perform above average by the end of the 22nd century, only to increase his skills to a professional level up until the FX350 league in 2205. Despite his teammates making elite much faster than him, Jusef was patient and never rushed himself. With that, He doesnít compete for the FX350 league only to test pilot the teamís H5 and prototype H6 back at the main facility in Sepang. Team principal, Manjula Vamatharen would accept him to be one of the organizationís main test pilots for every craft they develop over the years.

    As the FX400 league arrived in 2207, Harimau would become absent during the first three seasons. When Harimau decided to come back in 2210, Jusef was also back racing in the new H7 craft for the opening season. He was allowed to choose his own teammates for a squad, and who he came across was Makanian Harimau pilot, Kaida Wong. Friendly and environmental as she was, Kaida was also an above average pilot on the Harimau team. Despite her determination for her own personal reasons, she struggled while moving on to a different speed class and professional rank. Becoming Jusefís wingman, they both became an excellent duo during team tournaments acquiring up to silver and gold medals in a number of seasons. In 2211, Kaida would introduce British FEISAR pilot and AG-Queen, Loraine Johnson to their squad, highly skilled and was still a teenager. Jusef would promote Kaida to Co-Lead pilot, responsible for Loraine in later seasons in the FX400 league. From 2212 to 14, it would become the teamís best seasons overall after Vamatharen had acquired Russian pilot, Roman Kovalenko to win a three year streak in the Season Final Championships. Jusef would make Elite in standard events, Kaida would earn her pilot name Sebenco for her dedicated flights on the mountain tracks, and Loraine would also make Elite rank all on her own.

    Harimauís success would bring Jusef and their many pilots a boom of earnings within the early 2210s, skyrocketing their organizationís budget to not only build more craft, but also fund off their environmental projects. Jusef would still give away 80% of his earnings for the organization in every season, knowing full well of the teamís good cause and was still grateful to be a part of it. However, Harimauís win streak would only last till the new installment of the FX500 league in 2215. Jusef would still continue to race for Harimau despite other teams wanting him for his skill level. Around this time he would make veteran rank overall.

    When it came to allies in race events, Jusef was tolerant of whoever will race alongside from another team. In the early 2210s, he was able to achieve an alliance from one of Mirageís pilots, Damien Avandi, hailing from India. Aside from FEISAR, both Harimau and Mirage also seem to hold close relations on the track, only for Jusef to end up meeting Damien during a trial event in Southern Asia. They seem to respect one another with Jusef being the friendliest towards the Indian pilot at least in a pacifist way. Itís unconfirmed how they end up being friends outside of racing, only for Jusef to say during an interview saying, ďHeís a good pilot and I respect his manner for the team overall. Having unity with pilots from any team is what will make this sport and the world better for all of us.Ē

    Jusef believed in peace and pure racing in general, based on his background. Still, despite his tolerance, he would still end up making rivals in the racing league. Harimau didnít have major rivals in the sport other than AG-Systems which they only see Harimau as a small nuisance and having close finishes during race events. Jusef didnít have official rivals from other teams, yet he did have a concern with one of EG.Xís pilots back in 2210. Their experimental pilot from China, Han Lao, was known to be augmented along with other pilots who were cybernetically enhanced. When it was revealed, Jusef believed their neural bonding experiments were a form of suffering looking at Lao during races. A lot of concentration to pilot a craft sounded damaging to Jusef, hearing things about their past as EG.R having too much reliance on technology with their pilots controlling a craft with their minds only, suffering disabilities in the process of augmentation. Jusef didnít dislike Lao, but rather felt sympathy for him. He showed little emotion and looked constrained by his own team, though Lao still had free will and even showed affection to his Makanian teammate, Yumi Nakamura. Still, Jusef had distrust for EG.X, unsure what theyíll do to their pilots for the FX500 Racing League including everyone else.

    The FX500 would be the most violent league out of the all the past leagues since the announcement of the FX150 in 2185. Auricom and Qirex were at war for the race commission along with their allied teams, while other teams including Harimau stayed neutral. Jusef strongly opposed the situation and remains pacifist by not entering in combat based events including eliminator. Unfortunately for him, Kaida Wong would retire racing by 2218, while Loraine Johnson transferred back to FEISAR in current 2217. He was on his own during the current league, but remained cautious while entering in certain events. Only as a last resort would he ever use offensive weapons in combat events. Despite it being his biggest weakness for aggressive pilots, it does not faze him one bit believing his Buddhist while racing, even once again meditating before a race. Overall, he was one of Harimauís best and influential pilots. With over 20 years of experience and entered in 17 seasons, Jusef earns over 20 medals in his long racing career. (10G/4S/6B) The challenges facing him by 2218 would soon be tested, dealing with the return of what was a dormant AG-Team, Tigron Enterprises.

    Things could only get more destructive from this point on.

    Author note: Well this concludes all my pilot backstories for now, ready for the Omega Collection coming this next week. However this is not the end of the WipEout Pilot Archive thread. I still need to go back and fix/update things reading over all of them again including attaching pilot appearances. With the comeback of both Van-Uber and Tigron Enterprises, there will be mentioning of them on some of the pilot stories. In continuation of this thread I will be introducing 6 new pilots from both Van Uber and Tigron as a bonus including my telling of their returns to the FX500 Racing League, creating a possible story plotline of this situation Iíve made now that Iíve established the pilots. I will make more videos for my Youtube channel of the Omega Collection including updated pilot profiles and etc. I wonít promise everything, but Iíll bring out what Iíll bring out. Overall that is it, and I hope to meet some of you online on WOC multiplayer.

    Iím taking a break from the FX400/500 era for now, only to go back more than 150 years to the very beginning of the Anti-Gravity Racing Championships in the year 2048. This is only a name reveal, announcing 30 pilots who are just entering the AGRC, half of them being very familiar. I donít plan on writing full backstories for these pilots like the others, but I am planning on a video series on my Youtube channel playing through the whole WipEout 2048 Campaign while making up events using the different classes and roleplaying as these pilots. Not exactly like a story mode, though I am considering that for the Fury Campaign, while HD will also be like this but with the pilots created beforehand using some references from their backstories. Of course, because I'll be using the original pilots from the original WipEout, their birthdates and other info won't be canon, with the exception of age, height, nationality, and IDF.

    As for the new pilots, most of the names may look familiar if youíve read through one of my past posts. Thatís because they were originally the names of my pilots for Formula Fusion, cancelling the idea only to move them here in the WipEout Universe. I'll be mentioning a little from Keg_11ís Chronicles for the AGRC results, but only referencing Kel Solaar and John Dekka winning the 3 seasons. Iíll make a video preview on YT on how the 2048 Campaign will look like, trying to use a different movie maker rather than an old Windows version. Overall Iíll most likely be posting these new profiles on new threads, and possibly not for a while, their concept appearances on YT.

    Okay.. Here are my plans of what Iíll be doing on this forum.

    First things first, Iím not gonna be posting more stories on this thread anymore. However, I will be separating the AGRC era profiles on new threads, including the remaining 6 new pilots for Tigron and Van Uber (3 each and will actually be brief backstories this time). I made the mistake of not separating the teams and my pilots on different threads, only to do what Keg_11 and Light Buster did which was having their own dedicated threads and posting their stories on there only. I guess for pilot profiles they should be separate threads, but I actually hesitated on doing that because, One: I was new to the forums at the time so I didnít want to doing anything that may had been not part of the rules on this forum. Two: I didnít want to have my threads all over the fanfiction forum so I decided to just keep them in one thread only.

    Originally my Pilot Archive thread was only suppose to be a linked post to my backstories on Fanfiction.net with some written stories on it that I wanted exclusive here. However, with excitement of the Omega Collection, I wanted to bring them to this thread, but rewritten. So really I didnít wanted to post them on here at first, but I just wanted to take advantage of the game release and well.. get some readers excited for it by showing my written work on here, instead of just updating them on Fanfiction.net and making a post about it.

    So yeah, itís already too late to separate these backstories, though Iím trying to figure out how to organize them by doing what Keg does which is using links to jump you to a specific post. As for the rest, Iím taking consideration of what Challenger #001 and Metakraken do is now make separate threads and posting few and shorter stories/profiles on them. I cleared the FEISAR AGRC profile I had on here, only revealing the names of the pilots/squads of each team for now. Iím taking a while on them, but not because theyíll be long but rather Iím busy with other things at the moment. Iíll have 6 pilots for each team, but are 2 separate squads with 3 of each, based on the alternate liveries and craft in 2048, making 30. (not counting the prototypes) Iíll only make two posts on each thread, showing the statistics and brief backstories of one squad of 3 and another on a second post.

    Thatís all I have to say, and thereíll be more from me coming soon.
