    Sean Cooper was once a newcomer and secondary pilot of Anti-Gravity Systems. He was born on June 17th 2193 in Vancouver, Canada, raised by an interesting family. His father was a mechanic/ robot engineer for the competitors of the Amateur FX150 league and had took part of the AG-Rebirth Festival in 2185. It wasn't until 2197 when his dad had to go to the Island of Makana to help with maintaining robots for the race craft of the FX300 Racing League including working on the race craft themselves. Public teams like FEISAR and AG-Systems were the only teams to be worked on, while most kept their engineering private from outside engineers. Sean did see AG-races before on television, getting to see what his dad had worked on for the competing craft. Unfortunately, it's not very often that he saw his father, as he mostly lived with his mother back home, but he wasn't an only child in the family however. Following the footsteps of his dad, he learned how to fix and build with robotics and other engineering topics when he was just 5yrs old. All by himself, he programmed an old aimi bot, stored away in his dad's workshop. A small floating maintenance bot which helped repair and replace parts for race craft during the F9000 league became his personal project. He rewired the circuits on the robot, replacing the CPU on the control board to adapt with other functions other than what it was originally programmed for, yet those functions were still kept in the robot. After finishing reprogramming the bot, it had worked the way he wanted it, however, by replacing the old CPU replacing its vocabulary, it had very little speech. After finishing his creation, He then decided to name his robot, Sparky, mostly by how many times it kept sparking during rebuilding. Aside from using it to do his chores around the house like a robot butler, he does almost treat it like brother, talking to it, and even playing sports with it like baseball and basketball. Playing with it in hockey however, still needed some work after an incident down at a local park.

    In the following years, Sean did program Sparky a little more, taking classes on mechanics and robotics when he was 12. He had gotten more technical with the primary majors just like his dad and was almost seemed eligible on repairing robots and AG-Race craft alongside with him. After graduating from middleschool, Sean wanted to work for his dad, only to be homeschooled from now on. This included having himself going to the Island with his dad to now help him for the upcoming FX400 Racing League season in 2208 for the amateur pilots, taking Sparky along as a helping hand. Saying goodbye to his mom taking a floating cab to a nearby airport, Sean booked a flight to the international hotspot of AG-Racing out in the pacific.

    Arriving at the island Makana gave Sean a huge impression over the race culture in the country. Landing near Vineta K, his dad surprisingly lived close by just outside the city, including a couple miles away from the town's racetrack off the beach. When he got to his dad's address he was excited to see him outside, not seeing him for over a couple years. Sean's father owned a robotics shop selling parts for amateur pilots or ordinary customers coming by, having a single apartment upstairs with 2 bedrooms, one of them now given to Sean. When it came to amateur race tournaments on the island, he and his father were already on the job. In the hangar bays, the father and son would keep maintenance on the aimi repair bots repairing the craft including inspecting and repairing any damaged race craft manually that were brought over, yet none from private teams. It's not too often that the two would be called in, only repairing the bots themselves for other jobs and selling discount robot parts for the amateur AG-Pilots and a couple of amateur teams at the events. Very rarely they would get service by few of the actual teams in the league, mostly for monitoring rather than actual repairing purposes leaving it to the bots themselves. For Sean, it got repetitive most of the time, and would rather see the races other than repairing the bots and ships themselves. In his absents on the job, he would have Sparky to fill in with his dad most of the time and would head down to the stands or open lots where the race day festivals were set upped. However, most of the reasons why he left out was just to see the AG-Queen models at the events.

    While walking around the stands, Sean would still wear his uniform and at some occasions without knowing, would have oil spots on his clothes. He never really minded at first, until he got close to the AG-Queen models. The shows were another thing he would go see, getting through crowds just to see the dancers up-close and see their moves. While he thought the girls were beautiful in most performances, one in particular had caught his eye while looking at the all-star dancers. These girls were highly active and fast dancers performing to some of the most uplifting trance tracks throughout the shows. But one AG-Queen had really grabbed his attention, being almost the same age as him. One FEISAR AG-Queen, brunette with natural bright emerald green eyes would catch his eye. For being a teenager, she had a fully athletic hourglass body, along with dance moves that were deemed mesmerizing using wands to stream lights around stage. One unique feature about her out of all the dancers was that she wore her trademark FEISAR striped white ribbon on her ponytail, giving her the impression of little girl innocence to the crowds around, wearing it for years as a child star. Unsurprisingly, she was the most popular dancer on the island with Sean just knowing about it when speaking to other fans around him about who she was. Seeing how amazing she was in her performance, Sean grew an interest on the young AG-Queen, a celebrity crush almost for that matter. When going back home at the end of the event, she was all he could think about up until going to bed.

    Sean had never met this model in person, but even if he did he would feel very anxious to go near her or any girl for that matter. But one day in 2209, while inspecting a FEISAR race craft he was suddenly surprised when he heard a small female voice. Not expecting it, he accidentally hits his head under the wings of the race craft while on a ladder. He was knocked out, but as he woke up he saw a pretty face in front of him. Realizing who it was shocked him even more. In the flesh, it was the dancer he was attracted to, her name was Mariana Sinclair.

    "Are you ok?" Mariana asked him: "Ohmygod, I'm so sorry that I..."
    Sean Interrupts while holding his head: "Nonono, Its ok, I I I...I" (Sean whispers to himself) "Wow."

    He was mesmerized by how she looked, wearing her new AG-Queen outfit exposing her legs and seeing her bright emerald green eyes up-close.

    Sean snaps out: "Oh I.. sorry I'm, still kind of dazed from that hit. Just trying to unblur my vision is all."

    Mariana: "You sure you're ok? You hit your head pretty hard there. Maybe you should go see a doctor or something."

    Sean: "Don't worry, I'm fine, I'm fine. Just.. You, you're that AG-Queen I saw back at Vineta K. Mariana, right?"

    Mariana slowly answers: "Yes?"

    Sean: "heh, wow, what a beautiful name. ..Uh, I mean, It's a nice name I mean. I'm not saying it like I like you or anything. Uh, a fan, I'm a fan is what I meant. I've, seen your performance back at that track couple days ago. It was.. Incredible."

    Mariana: "You liked it? You're not the only fan on this island you know. I have many fans from around the world. Everyone loves my performances. I found this dance style after all."

    Sean: "So you did. You're very talented."

    Mariana: "Of course I am. You're looking at the #1 AG-Queen on this Island. No one else is as good as me."

    Sean: "Damn straight. But, what are you doing here?"

    Mariana: "Why do you ask? Aren't you the one looking at daddy's craft?"

    Sean: "Thi.. This is your dad's craft?"

    Mariana: "Of Course. You don't know my daddy, Marcus Sinclair? He's the best pilot in the world. FEISAR's finest..."

    Sean was mesmerized by her beauty up close, not paying attention to her talking and started daydreaming about being with her. He slowly gained back focus as Mariana tried to get his attention.

    Mariana: "Hey? Hey? Is anything alright with you?"

    Sean snaps out of it again making more excuses about his head. He tried to act cool by trying to not act like a fool around her. He tried to impress her by talking all smart about the mechanics on the craft, saying things about it that Mariana wasn't interested about nor understood. Sean then just said that everything was fine, yet a couple of components needed to be replaced before it could go back on the track. Overall, Mariana knew what she wanted to know, thanking Sean and saying goodbye to him. Still shocked to have her come by, as she left, he suddenly faints again, only to be awaken by his companion, Sparky, moments later.

    During race days in the hangers, Sean would be too distracted thinking about Mariana while replacing parts. Sparky, now reading emotions can sense Sean in a blissful mood as he tried to make him go away but then decides to tell him anyway about her and how he felt. Sparky was no love robot, but instead told statistics of him being with her with a 10.24% chance of it happening. As such, Sean wasn't the approachable type. He wouldn't have the guts to tell Mariana about how he felt, even if he tried, feeling he was way under her league because she was wealthy, athletic and perfectly beautiful. Comparing to himself, he was just a mechanical geek who lived in his dad's shop fixing race craft every day. He felt like it wasn't impressive even to other girls as he thought it over lying in bed and looking at his ceiling at night, sometimes a poster of her. Looking around his room even out a window seeing posters/adverts of pilots with their crafts including with an AG-Queen model, Sean had an Idea on how he could impress Mariana. He had thoughts about being an AG-Pilot, thinking it could get her attention and have her to like him, yet Sparky still reads out statistics thinking it's not possible, even showing a lower percentage but Sean disagreed. He hoped that someday he'll be a pilot for FEISAR, and win every tournament to take home the gold and the girl. But that was until 2211, where he would pilot his first AG-Race craft.

    Having a crush on Mariana for over a year, Sean almost sensed something was in his way. Unaware she was an AG-Pilot herself since she turned 16 in the JX350 junior league in 2210, one pilot seemed to had been hanging out with her most of the time. German FEISAR Pilot Griffin Lang was Mariana's lead team pilot during the time, and the two were pretty close friends other than teammates, aside from Rachel Vega from Auricom who also got a bit of Sean's attention by her more cuter appearance/personality. Sean felt jealous over the experienced pilot as he was the most talked about pilot in FEISAR based on his charm and good looks. Sean thought he was overrated and believed he could be a better pilot than him and by getting attention for skill instead. As he thought about it, it gave him an idea as he now wanted to compete for the FX350/400 league, just to get the attention of Mariana. When it came to his dad however, he thought his son was crazy. Sean didn't really tell his dad why, but instead made up an excuse of just wanted to go for it, but his dad completely disagreed. "You wanted to fix robots and race craft, and now you want to fly one? You know how extremely dangerous it is out there?" his dad explained. But Sean didn't care; in his mind, he wanted to impress the superstar AG-Queen turned pilot, and to take down her teammate. He tried to make more excuse like having Sparky fill in his time while he raced and to repair his own craft. He tried everything to convince his dad but continued to get a "no" from him. Sean would bother his dad every single day about it until at some point finally giving in by his son's continuous begging, only to feel like his son did not know what he was getting into, even Sean himself. Trying to enroll at an academy on the island would be kind of expensive as it took Sean up until his 18th birthday for a possible chance to register at the Makanian AG-Academy in Vineta A east of the island.

    Sean would eventually get his birthday wish as he was now registered to the academy for pilot training. As he got there he was feeling very excited, with teams FEISAR, AG-Systems, and Goteki 45 being the 3 starting teams willing to train any pilot around the island. As such, Sean wanted to race for FEISAR just to be around his crush, even if it meant teaming up with his future rival. Unfortunately with FEISAR having the most pilots joining in, he would get denied due to the last spot being taken and instead was introduced to the other two teams. This was not going how Sean had planned it and didn't want to back out only because he begged his dad so many times and would then change his mind all for nothing. Not wanting to be on a waiting list, he chose AG-Systems instead, being pointed to the hall leading to their part of the facility. Sean was frustrated, but overall he was going to sit in an AG-cockpit for real this time. Before however for the next couple of weeks, he would go through procedures by taking on the simulators first before getting into a real AG-Craft. His scores prove decent on the sim as well as zone mode, now given permission to walk into the team's hanger bay. As he got there being led by an instructor and group, he was introduced to the other trainees in his class. His instructor was none other than Japanese pilot, Katsu Sasaki, who was surprisingly one of AG-Systems best veteran pilots and Sean's future teammate, currently training pilots in the facility during closed seasons. Sean had an idea on how to pilot one, but the thing he couldn't get use to were the airbrakes. On makeshift tracks starting on Vector class going on hard turns and hairpins, he would go off course. Still getting use to it, he was required to use auto-assist for the air-brakes to automatically turn on while heading towards tight turns. However, it felt like a bike with training wheels to Sean, feeling a bit embarrassed despite other trainees having the same exact problem.

    It didn't help much when he saw his adversary from FEISAR training another pilot both riding the course together. But what really surprised Sean was when the training pilot came out of the cockpit. It was a female figure that looked familiar to him. As she took off her helmet, it was Mariana herself, piloting the last FEISAR MK2 race-craft on Flash class speeds without using assist. Just a year younger than Sean and was an amateur pilot, Mariana had been piloting AG-Craft for quite awhile in the JX350 league. She got her first taste of competition back in 2210, becoming a very skilled teen pilot in her division to where she was potentially eligible to race with the big boys/girls in the FX400 racing league. Piloting on the test course in the facility, she was trying to gain more skill on a faster speed class, having her teammate Griffin Lang to train her. Sean didn't know if he wanted to feel amazed or more frustrated. For one reason, he now knew Mariana was a pilot herself for the team that he originally wanted to join. To make matters worse, she was now racing with Griffin. Sean was still inexperience, piloting an AG-race craft on another team. In this case, instead of racing for her, he was racing against her.

    Sean had been upset of himself for weeks. Mariana was only an AG-Queen and pilot for FEISAR and somehow fate declined him from that team. During the course of his training, he was still a beginner, still not use to using the airbrakes and was still permitted to use auto-assist. Still, he was considered lucky as his instructor was an elite pilot, having students coming out as excellent pilots from the academy. Sean would complete his training eventually, now competing for rookie events in the FX400. His first race took place at a commercial city in the heart of Makana, racing in an indoor mall of "Ubermall". It was a junior exhibition race; weapon pads were disabled, and the race took the track in reverse where the first corner was a tight chicane. Both Sean and Mariana were two of the 8 competing pilots. Sean was positioned 4th while Mariana was 8th on the starting grid. He didn't want to feel like a complete novice, and decided to turn off his auto-assist before the race started, even though he had never raced on this track before.

    As the race started, the pilots zoomed down the Silverhead Wing through the track entrance, easy for Sean heading down the tunnel. But when it came to the first corner chicane, he turns, but without using the airbrakes. He hits and scrapes his craft alongside the track wall followed by the opposite side exiting out of the chicane. While still going, he also struggled on the second chicane just inside the entrance of the Barterhall Center, followed by going uphill inside the mall. With the harder sections of the track now passed it was then easygoing from then on. It took him a couple of laps to master the two chicanes, but he eventually got use to using the airbrakes and was then smooth sailing ahead. Unfortunately, he couldn't catch up with the other pilots, and finishes last in his first race, but luckily wasn't officially. Mariana on the other hand, the race was just a warm up for her, finishing in first place. Sean would have felt embarrassed, but instead wanted another go to master the track. During his time visiting other tracks, he was now focused on mastering a track before a race, which helped him a lot finishing in the mid pack. Before long he remembered to use the airbrakes becoming a habit, conquering tight corners without a problem though was still racing in Flash class speeds.

    In late 2211 after a follow-up of practice runs and exhibition races, Sean was now entering an official race back in Vineta K which would have him join with the official pilots of the FX400 league. The race was set to Flash class, as pilots were now going 300 to 350mph. Just as much as he wanted to win this race, Mariana suddenly came in his mind again, who was also entering for a chance in the big league. To Mariana, she really wanted to win this, though knowing Sean was entering, her eye was still on the prize. It was a combat race, as the weapon pads were now enabled, meaning Sean would have to fire at his opponents in order to win, opponents like Mariana, which had him nervous. Both his dad and Sparky, even his mom was watching, including a couple of friends he had met on the island. Seeing them would make this an important race for him as he waited for the start. The pilots zoom off on the start of go in this 10 laps race; even though it was short there was enough action to excite everyone with explosions igniting all around the track. In the heat of the race, a couple of contenders get eliminated, but Sean and Mariana were one of the surviving pilots on the few remaining laps. The announcer looked over the two battling their way to the finish.

    Announcer: "It looks to be a very close race here, folks, what a show of determination from these two teams. With just a lap to go in this race it's anyone's game from here. Sinclair is still keeping her lead going down the tunnel, but Cooper's still hanging on to her. Surely these two must have a weapon or turbo to change the outcome, saving them for the right moment I believe, only time will tell."

    Mariana was out in front as Sean catches up with her on the final lap. He had weapons, but he couldn't use them on her. He was close to taking first as he headed right beside her craft coming out the second tunnel on to the straight. The two just looked at each other through their cockpits; Mariana thought she was going to lose by a photo finish just meters away from the finish line. But with Sean, he wanted her to win, making a bold move by slightly pushing the airbrakes and slowing down while Mariana passed the line with him taking second. It was the biggest choice he had ever made.

    While on the podium however, he didn't feel proud of himself while receiving the silver medal thinking he had the chance to win if he fired his weapon or kept speeding onto the finish. As for Mariana taking gold, she was now starting to have a suspicion about Sean, thinking he had purposely lost for her. Even while thinking back first meeting him when he was a mechanic, how he acted around her, and was now an AG-Pilot for whatever reason as if to follow or impress her. She now had the feeling that he had a little crush on her, accounting that hundreds of male fans also felt the same way around her. It may appear she felt a bit the same way about him, but mostly, she had other ideas. Sean would still make it to the official league after the new year, but with Mariana now knowing a bit about his secret.

    Sean now teams up with his instructor Katsu Sasaki in the professional FX400 league. The two at least knew each other from 2211 and were able to communicate in a race. Sean would now step up to Rapier class speeds competing along with the professional pilots of the FX400 Racing League in 2213. Mariana was Elite, but Sean tried to ignore letting her take advantage when racing against her, but for his rival that is on the same team as her, it only motivated Sean to stay in front. But between him and Mariana outside of the track, Mariana already knew his secret affection towards her. For having her win the race a year ago, even saving her a couple times, she gave him respect, becoming somewhat a friend to Sean by having him be her personal mechanic and an ally, most of which to repair her domestic house robots for a discount price, but charming him to have it free of charge. But for Griffin who also had a thing for Mariana would intervene between the two. Knowing her attention to Sean, he now went after him, forming an arch rivalry. Despite the love triangle between the three pilots, Sean was also destined to have his team win in the FX400 League, and continued to race and repair robots and AG-race craft for years to come. While Sean may have thought Mariana now liked him, there was some sense to him that she may be using him to give her free fixes to her craft or domestic robots, and more defense on the track as she took first position most of the time.

    In early 2214, Sean's senses would turn out to be correct. Going by a hanger bay he spotted Mariana and Griffin talking to each other. Sean hid behind some crates as he heard them arguing about him.

    Griffin: "What's the deal with you two anyway?"

    Mariana: "It's nothing, alright."

    Griffin: "I'm seeing you two always talking to each other. He does things for you, you always go around him turning his gears every time you meet him. Are you two starting to have a thing for each other behind my back?"

    Mariana: "Ugh, don't be ridiculous, Griffin, like I ever want to get with him."

    Griffin: "Heh, then explain why you always meet with him then. You obviously like him."

    Mariana: "Gross. You know I'm better than that. Why would I want to be with some mechanic who's probably all greasy and dirty all the time. Just look at his face. I've never seen that much acne on a guy's face before, so disgusting. You wanna know why I hang out with him? He likes me, okay. I'm just pretending to like him back just so I can have the advantage in races when he's around. He even fixes my robots back home, almost like a servant to me. He really thinks by doing this I will fall in love with him or something. What a loser. I'm just playing him as a fool that's all I'm doing."

    Griffin: "Ha, he sure is one now that you told me."

    Mariana making fun of Sean's Canadian: "Ay, I know how to fix things, Ay."

    Griffin responds: "What a hoser, Ay." (Both laughing)

    Sean was heartbroken and just walked away from them. The next day, Mariana would come up and ask Sean for something only for him to say no by telling her he heard everything she said about him. Mariana would finally confess, but in a disrespectful tone saying no girl like her would ever like him, only for him to talk back at her about the comment she made and making fun of him. Sean just walked away from her, not wanting to see her for anything else ever again. For days, Sean was depressed, though already becoming a professional pilot for AG-Systems, he didn't want to quit. Instead, despite leaving his dad's business leaving Sparky to aid him, Sean decided to work for Katsu at a training academy in Makana, becoming an assistant for Katsu on training the new pilots for AG-Systems. As time passed, Sean got over Mariana, as he helped out his team's side of the facility. At some point in 2214 unfortunately, Katsu's Co-lead Dutch pilot, Viona De-Jong leaves their squad and retires from racing overall. They had a new slot for another pilot to join them as they got their replacement in 2215. Sean would meet someone new on his team that would surprise him.

    One day, Katsu had introduced Sean to a new trainee, a person that was special to him not too long ago. He told him it was another female pilot, only for Sean to just say "Okay", and waited for her arrival. When Sean was introduced to the new trainee few days later, he was shocked to see her. In his mind he thought the female was going be someone like their old pilot or other average looking women he saw in the hanger bay. He didn't think of someone like this however. The female pilot was tiny to him, but was very beautiful. This new Italian trainee introduced herself as Sofia Rossetti, talking to him first in Italian until she surprisingly spoke English. She was another stunner to Sean, having the same reaction when he met Mariana for the first time as he nervously spoke to Sofia about being her replacement coach for Katsu. He finally got to say what he needed to say to the trainee, only to excuse himself for a bottle of water, coming back moments later to show Sofia around the hanger. Sean eventually got over his anxiety around Sofia and began going over her training on piloting a craft. Throughout time, Sean felt more comfortable around Sofia and grew a partner relationship with her until the opening season of the FX500 in 2215. Though becoming a friend to her, he doesn't rush himself about how he really felt towards her. He became a co-lead pilot and took his responsibility for Sofia in team events for years to come. He eventually knew some more things about Sofia, some of which that would surprise him.

    Sean Cooper is considered one of the many next to post generation pilots currently competing. Next to pilots like Jacob Reilly of Icaras, Mariana & Griffin of FEISAR, Loraine Johnson of Harimau, (etc.) these pilots in their early 20s will continue on the sport for future events and other unannounced leagues by the next decade, including the teenage pilots from the JX Divisions. For the past 7 years currently in 2218, Sean has already reached elite rank for the current FX500 racing league. Trained by one of the most skilled pilots on the international stage, his reputation from AG-Systems would explode throughout his progress in each oncoming season. Sean would become lead pilot since 2217, making Sofia Rossetti his secondary hand in team events that will eventually compete for the Squad Team Championships separate from the original ASC months later. However, with the roaring feud between the Belmondo Foundation and Qirex's new forming coalition of teams, Sean and Sofia would join the fight for control of the race commission to protect Pierre Belmondo's philosophy. Overall, Sean Cooper has earned around 30 medals and counting. With 9 gold, 13 silver, and 9 bronze. Sean, as well as Sofia hope to someday take home the STC platinum medals & trophy. The only thing blocking them of course would be Mariana and Griffin of FEISAR, becoming one of the new arch rival squads of the FX500. With allies, mostly in the AGRL war against Qirex, pilots Rachel Vega and Tyrrell Byron of Auricom would be their closest friends on the Belmondo Foundation side. Sean's past lead pilot, Katsu Sasaki, would only become a mentor to him and Sofia, leaving them to compete while backing out of the FX500 league the current year, despite involvement during the inaugural season. As for Sean & Sofia themselves, their partner relationship continues to grow throughout their progress in the professional league, as well as outside of racing in general.

    With a relationship this strong, it would appear that these two would become more than just "Friends in Speed".

    Born on December 16th, 2193 in the old city of Chieti, Italy, Sofia Rossetti was an individual who had a love for dancing, specifically ballet taking classes moving to Rome when she was a child. Living with her parents and baby brother, her father was always away from home, going on far business trips around Europe while being taken care of by her mother over the years. Getting into performing arts when she became a preteen, Sofia became a star performer from her junior dance school, performing at plays & theatres around the Roman city making lead roles or groups following her graduation from a performing institute. Though still schooling herself back home with standard education, she could at least find a performing career for a theatre somewhere in the city, only to receive an exciting invite from the AG-race commission’s performing branch to become an official Anti-Gravity Queen junior performer for race events in Makana. Unfortunately, despite given a robot guardian if she were to stay on the island by herself, there was one possible setback that could bring her back home sooner than later. Running in her mother’s side of the family, there was a recessive disease that her mother was currently having in her lungs. Being able to treat it with nanobot prescriptions, it was only a matter of time till it moderately spreads in her mother’s body and preventing her from moving around, needing assistance. Because her father was always away, Sofia would have to be the one to assist her mother instead. She was still able to travel to Makana on her own in 2205 during the FX350 Racing League.

    Given an AI guardian as expected to guide her around after landing in Modesto Heights, Sofia headed for the Anti-Gravity Museum close to the city’s track for a free registration. Not familiar with the teams of the AGRL, she chose AG-Systems for their colors alone, receiving her performing suit at the Pilot’s Lounge. Staying around the area along with the young performers to learn techniques at a dancing studio, her class would get a surprise visit from the young AG-Queen founder herself, Mariana Sinclair. The students took turns learning from the master, only for Mariana to have an impression by the Italian dancer and wanted to spend time with her after the class. The two would form a close friendly relationship overtime, until Sofia was invited to visit Mariana’s personal gym at her family’s home in Vineta K for private sessions. From there, Sofia learned the best techniques and built her endurance to perform at shows during the 2206 race season, including duets with Mariana on most occasions. As a result, Sofia grew popular gaining recognition from her best friend, until eventually doing her first solo performance at the end of the season and getting sponsored as a rising star AG-Queen for AG-Systems. She was set to take the same path as FEISAR’s Mariana to perform in the new FX400 season in 2207. Unfortunately, as Sofia was entering her prime dancing/touring with her team around the world, she would get a call from her family back home.

    Just 3 months into the New Year and just finishing another duet with Mariana, a call came to Sofia after coming back to her suite in Anulpha Pass. She knew who it possibly was as she answered using the hologram feature. A person appeared showing to be her father, telling Sofia that her mother's disease had fully developed and was now taken to a hospital. Sofia's father wanted her to come back home, possibly not continuing for the 2208 season. Saying goodbye to Mariana, she left the island heading back home, only to keep in contact with her best friend despite not talking to each other years later. At some point in 2212, despite the medical treatments that had aided Sofia's mother at her home, she fell into a deep coma by her illnesses and was sent back to the emergency room. Sadly, Sofia’s mother passes from her deep sleep, keeping her ashes in an urn while moving with her father to Sicily in 2213, living near Moa Therma. The local track made her look back at her old AG-Queen suit and hologram photos of Mariana, only for her father to see how much she missed her career and apologizing for not being home most of the time. To make it up to his daughter, he promised her of taking her back to Makana to sign herself again. By mid 2214, Sofia was once again left on her own while landing on the island at age 20. However, while getting into a cab to the AG-museum to register, she had a change of mind and instead asked to be dropped off at the Makanian AG-Academy. Sofia wanted to become an AG-Pilot.

    Sofia’s reasons of becoming a pilot would go back to a conversation with Mariana back in 2208. Mariana thought of pursuing a career as an AG-pilot for her father, only for Sofia to see her succeed when she saw her raced at Moa Therma with HER father and little brother as spectators. Arriving at the academy, there was one pilot she knew that could possibly train her. Going into AG-Systems’ side of the facility, she finds the pilot she met in 2207, Katsu Sasaki, where she became a VIP to walk in the team hangers given to her by this Japanese veteran. Katsu was involved in the academy as a volunteer instructor; while he had the experience to train Sofia when she registered as a new pilot, he would unfortunately become busy with other trainees and instead had his new secondary/assistant to teach her, Sean Cooper. Despite Sean having a nervous greeting talking to a past AG-Queen wanting to become a pilot, he was able to show and instruct Sofia through the passing months starting from Zone Mode till eventually getting behind the stick of the AGS-500 training craft. In less than a year, including showing her skills to the team principals visiting the Japanese HQ, she was officially selected to compete for the inaugural FX500 Racing League as a rookie pilot in 2215.

    Sofia eventually met Mariana again during a night out with her squad at a Joy noodles joint in Vineta K. There she would also meet Mariana’s lead pilot, Griffin Lang, as well as her ally and current friend from Auricom, Rachel Vega, wanting to sit with them at a table while her teammates sat at a counter. The two were surprised to see each other again for so long while discovering they both became pilots for the AGRL. Immediately, they thought about becoming allies for the new FX500 season, but as Sofia started spending time with Mariana including performing an AG-Queen duet for old time sakes, something was not right about her. Mariana became a little competitive now with Sofia, even at one point taunting her in between a performance which kind of angered and confused her. She couldn't recognize her once best friend anymore, talking about it to Sean who had an interest in her at one point, including Rachel Vega if she ever acted this way to her as well. Talking to Rachel also brought more information about a British Harimau pilot, Loraine Johnson, who use to be Mariana's teammate in the junior division of the FX400 league, including a FEISAR AG-Queen. Oddly enough when Sofia saw Mariana’s race at Moa Therma, Loraine was also a contender alongside her, only to see Mariana racing quite aggressively and becoming hostile to the young British pilot. Rachel didn't know how they started to hate each other which lead Sofia with a mystery to solve by herself, followed by listening to Sean’s story story of how Mariana used him to get ahead in race events. In all, she was not the same person that Sofia once knew after leaving the AGRL.

    Sofia’s first appearance as a pilot took place at the Amphiseum during the opening ceremony for the new FX500 season, along with her wingmen, Sean and Katsu. While her two teammates took on events for the North American tour, she officially starts her season back at Makana till eventually entering international events going around Europe. Recognized by her old fans when she was an AG-Queen, she would just be another performer that took the route of racing much like her apparent friend, Mariana. Unfortunately, there friendship will eventually split apart after more issues will occur between the two. Though Sofia was focused on becoming one of the best pilots for AG-Systems, she will never leave as an AG-Queen performing part-time and will regain her popularity on the dancing stage once more. With so much ahead of her at this point, and considering that her mentor is a decorated AG-Systems veteran, one thing is certain is that this small rookie will prove to be a surprising contender, no matter how much opponents will continue to underestimate her.

    Author note: To keg_11, I made a small change for this pilot that you might need to change in your chronicles. Instead of being born in 2191 it’s instead turned to 2190 being just a year older to bypass him from the JX league and starting first from the FX400, being over 18yrs of age. Other than that, that was all what I really changed, plus having a couple of your pilots appear/mentioned in this backstory including Challenger.

    Early Life
    Born on October 17th 2190 in the heart of Berlin in Germany, Griffin is one of those pilots with the most charismatic and cocky personalities to compete in the FX400 League, always looking up high with a big smile on his face showing everyone that he could do anything for his fans. As a child, Griffin was a fan of AG-racing when the professional FX300 League announced on the island Makana, having well knowledge of the sport in general, or so he claims. The only noticeable trait from Griffin was that he was never shy to express himself. In a German highschool he was one of the most popular kids on campus, always sociable and charismatic but mostly towards female students. He was so cocky about himself that he even said to everyone that he'll get into AG-racing after he graduated, and to no surprise, everyone believed him, building up a pre-fan base. But despite being self-confident, he came across as being egocentric. At times he would become annoying to some students, becoming sick and tired of his big-headed attitude. Still, that didn't turn away any popularity he was given by pre-fans, even after he became a pilot. Though everyone may seem to already revolve around him, he was ambitious to want more around the world and wanting to fulfill his goal once he came out of highschool. However, what he didn't think about first was where to find FEISAR's HQ.

    Start Of AG-Career
    FEISAR was nowhere around Germany despite once having a testing ground since the AGRC era. The closest HQ was located in France but was sort of temporary due to the company moving around across Europe and not having a permanent facility. Waiting for about a month after registering, it turned out FEISAR were the ones who came to Griffin's parents' doorstep. His family knew he was going to compete and decided to let him go with a transport to France. It was an exciting moment for Griffin as he came to the Academy for the junior division. For over a couple months, he became decent in his group of beginners, mastering FEISAR's X2 craft in the academy and showing he had experience now as a rookie pilot. He would soon get transferred to the AG-racing homeland of Makana in 2208, completing the rest of his training almost halfway around the world in preparation of the JX350 Junior League specifically established for the prodigy pilots. However, because he was already over 18yrs old, Griffin was able to bypass the Junior division and headed straight for the official FX400 racing league in 2209.


    All-Star Recognition
    Throughout most of the season, Griffin became well received by spectators, specifically by female fans. As he continued racing in the league against his competitors, more and more people started to notice him, but it wasn't his racing that got their attention. FEISAR would begin to recognize his popularity, only for team principal, Nicolo Testa, wanting to give him a special offer. Testa wanted to meet Griffin in person, heading to Makana and messaging him with an invite back at the AG-Academy/facility, along with a group of their best pilots from the team. While coming there a day later, he was put in a meeting room office at FEISAR's side of the academy. Testa talked to Griffin about his first year in the league, only to be interested with his personality while he was competing in only the AGRL events. With the next season coming, Testa wanted to give him a jump start to the elite stage, suggesting to choose him for the All-Star Championships over the other elite pilots in the room. Having him become the "People's Pilot" for the ASC, Griffin’s charming personality could possibly give FEISAR more wider recognition to the public. Even if he doesn't do that well in the ASC, more people would want to join and stay with FEISAR if Griffin's charisma pleases everyone. Their team starlet, Mariana Sinclair, had already given the team a spotlight all these years as an AG-Queen, only now they needed a star pilot. Griffin would agree with the offer by shaking Testa's hand and uses his time to prepare in the facility. Despite the other elite pilots becoming upset that a kid was taking their places for the ASC, they had no choice but to push his skills further by the date. Starting the next day, they showed Griffin the works of becoming an elite pilot, with their team principal watching over them throughout each day.

    FX400 Progression
    Starting in 2210, Griffin was now FEISAR's choice going up against the very best of the league in the All-Star Championships. But despite expectations of him coming in 1st place, he would mostly come out as a mid pack runner on the final standings. From his first ASC, it would be the first time he was ever eliminated in a race, losing a craft for his team at the very end of the championships. Still, he was a winner at heart to most of his fans supporting him, winning people over by his personality in front of the cameras with his purely white smile and pointing thumbs up. During the 2210 season, he would be promoted to a lead pilot, including a signed sponsor deal for JAP Energy drink which would have him do a commercial for them. His female friend from the Makanian AG-Academy, Mariana Sinclair, would also make it to the FX400 league, skipping over the JX league by her rising skill level at age 17. Choosing his partners from the FEISAR lineup, Mariana would be his obvious choice as secondary, reunited again with Griffin for the professional stage followed by Loraine Johnson from Great Britain until her disappearance from the team a year later. Loraine would be replaced shortly by French female pilot, Clara Bellerose, coming up as Griffin's backup pilot in his squad. Overall, FEISAR began winning more races than they ever did with other pilots in the current league, winning a number of events in a few seasons by 2213 aside from the ASC. He carried the most Gold medals for the team at the time and shared trophies with both Mariana and Clara in team tournaments. However, with all this growing success over the years, so did his massive ego. Like in highschool as Griffin grew more popular, he became cockier and egotistical, similar to Mariana. During press conferences with FEISAR he would act all bigheaded when taking questions, only to gloat about how amazing he was in order to please his fans on camera. Other male pilots from his team and outside would find him annoying both on and off the track, usually seeing him still acting like a spoiled kid when it came to his cocky attitude. However, there was one pilot that found him the most irritating.

    Meeting the Beta Pilot
    Most annoyed by Griffin was AG-Systems rookie, Sean Cooper, taking notice of him when he was around Mariana while also having a secret affection towards her on the other team. What upset Sean the most was Griffin's relationship with Mariana in general, but even he thought Griffin was the most overrated pilot currently competing, getting more attention for his charm & good looks rather than his overall skill in racing. Usually, Griffin would look down upon Sean, gloating that he was better than him at every step of the way and considered him as just a “Beta Male” lacking the charisma he had. But as Mariana became aware of how he felt towards her, she planned on teasing him in order to give her the advantage in races they’ve competed together in. This would make Griffin suspicious, thinking Mariana turned him down for Sean and would intervene between them whenever they talked to each other. But as he found out when talking to Mariana one day, he would realize that she'd never really liked Sean at all, laughing along with her when all she did was used him, toying with his affections. Apparently, it all stopped when Sean found out just a day later, only to continue their rivalry into 2214. However, despite Sean’s lack of charisma when it came to Mariana, he was no pushover when racing difficult opponents. During the final seasons of the FX400 league, Griffin would begin to lose his own consistency when battling the Canadian during races in a number of events. Persistently fighting back in terms of skill, Sean would come out with the most wins against Griffin as fans of him began to turn to the AG-S pilot for his overall experience. Either way, Griffin would become old news to young spectators by the start of the FX500 league in 2215.

    FX500 Transition
    Griffin would still regain some of his popularity while competing in the All-Star Championships going into the FX500 Racing League. Though offers from other teams came to him including Icaras, he would turn them down to stay with FEISAR, possibly having no intentions of leaving the team in the near future. No one was sure why he would turn down a much faster team for a slow but maneuverable craft, but it seemed that his relationship with Mariana Sinclair would give him more of a reason to stay, despite being uncooperative recently. Continuing on in the next generation, Griffin would now switch to FEISAR's X5-Alpha craft, being much faster than their X4 model, but still keeping the maneuverability that they're most famous for. Even during the FX400 league Griffin had tested prototype versions of the X5, including Mariana as a special offer from the team in 2210. Overall, he would still be the charismatic pilot he was for the new generation, but as new rising pilots start to trend in the eyes of fans in the coming seasons, his popularity would eventually fade away.

    Author note: Yet another long written story here, only this has more dialogue and is interconnected with other pilot backstories later on in their perspectives and putting their pieces together. This mostly turns into an AG-Queen drama rather than a pilot story, but there will be more racing related ones up next. You may notice that the grammer on Sofia's dialogue is alittle off. That was done on purpose since she isn't a native English speaker.

    Prologue: Things had came to a crashing halt after the F9000 league. On the month of October, 2170, the Anti-Gravity purity Coalition had exposed allegations of corruption and illegal practices between the F9000 Federation, the Overtel, and numerous organizations & crime syndicates across the globe. With sensitive evidence being shown to the public, AG fans started to wake up and realize what was happening behind the scenes as the greed of these organizations had taken advantage of the technology for their own personal gains. The sport was turned from a purity pastime to a corporate battleground with excessive tracks built around the world, track weapons becoming overpowered still scarring the minds of people after the Temtesh Bay Disaster in 2164. Everything was a mess only to discover the dark truths behind it all. The league was put on hold, but the damage had already been done. The associated organizations were terminated after US marshals seized the Overtel headquarters in Nova City (New York City), and a few AG teams like G-Tech and Tigron had fallen to bankruptcy or were terminated, yet their responsibilities have already torn down the Economic market. Global unrest scattered across the world along with civilians boycotting the technology, causing a complete collapse to the economy itself putting the world into another state of economic depression. The F9000 league was suspended; throughout the 2170's, AG tracks from around the world were left abandoned. Not a single craft was ever flown throughout the decade with people struggling with recession all across world. What was once a grand sport turned into an economic nightmare. What Pierre Belmondo (founder of AG technology) wanted became an all out war for money and power as he feared. Anti-Gravity racing has now fallen to its knees, or so it seems.

    During the early 2180's, first signs of the global amateur scene emerged consisting on restored craft on makeshift circuits. Traditional AG fans and enthusiasts relive the days when Anti Gravity racing didn't excess on high powered weapons, or rollercoaster type tracks, but the purity of how Pierre saw his vision throughout the first three F-thousand leagues despite the flaws that sank in up until the F9000. By 2185, the Anti-Gravity Purity Rebirth Festival was held as an amateur racing event on the flat Tule Desert in Nevada to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Pierre Belmondo's historical flight in 2035. What resulted were returning teams such as AG-Systems, Qirex, and FEISAR, who helped replaced any supplied parts for the contender's ships. The newly formed Belmondo Foundation then announced the first FX150 league for the amateur race pilots to compete in and would soon revive newer pilots to race professionally for an upcoming FX league currently not announced.

    During competition of the FX150, one pilot was soon recognized from the newcomers of AG racing, introducing amateur pilot, Marcus Sinclair. Marcus had a family history dating back to the early 20th century when his ancestors had been racing since the invention of the automobile. The family had raced for generations in automotive racing until the technology of Anti-Gravity came along in the 2040's. The tradition was moved on to the F-thousand leagues including the A.G.R.C. in 2048. However, the Sinclair's never took on with the elite class racing leagues while Marcus was destined to do for the first time in his family's history and maybe for his future children. The Sinclair's are also a wealthy family, having to live in million dollar houses over the years and were unaffected by the great depression overall. Ever since AG racing emerged again, Sinclair was met with a youthful Chilean woman, calling herself Arianna Santiago. The two met just after the end of the depression in 2179, and have been together for over 6 years up until the Rebirth Festival in Nevada. When the FX150 Amateur league was announced, Sinclair was eager to make a decision with his upcoming fiancé. On the day that he won the first amateur tournament, Marcus proposed to her to be his lovely wife for years to come. Arianna said yes to the proposal, and was soon to be engaged on the Pacific Island of Makana, hosting the official FX300 Racing League in 2195. The Couple lived in a villa close by the coast of Vineta K, just a few miles away from a constructed track in preparation of the new league. When FEISAR came back from the events of the depression, they were ready to introduce their new FX300 race craft for the upcoming league and Marcus got a hold of their new X1 model craft to test pilot. However the league was still a couple of years from now, still going on with the FX150 AGLR along with testing out the new craft for the company.

    At some point, Arianna Sinclair wanted children, and for Marcus it was a right decision to make, hoping to have a son to pass down the tradition in future FX leagues in the 23rd century. By 2192, Arianna was now in labor, but unfortunately for Marcus hearing that the baby was going to be a girl, he personally didn't mind at first, already making a decision to have two kids in their home. Still, he carried on with his career in the amateur league until November 6 when the baby was ready to arrive. The first child was born, naming their first daughter in the family, Olivia Sinclair. Marcus was proud, but was still kind of nervous; he thought his daughter wouldn't have an interest for AG racing nor continue the family name. Two years later however, they were ready to have another child. The mother, now having another pregnancy, wanted to surprise her husband and daughter this time who was now a year and a half old. As for the father, he was kind of impatient on what gender it was going to be, up until August 15th, 2194. Once again the mother was back at a Vineta K hospital as she came out of the emergency room with the baby in her arms. Marcus was anxious to see his new child expecting a baby boy, but as the mother showed the baby, Marcus' hopes just drop. It was another baby girl, but something about her made the Father forget that he wanted a son. The child looked more like her mother; very beautiful with natural emerald green eyes. The father loved his new child regardless as Olivia was brought in with him to see her new little sister. They named their 2nd daughter, Mariana, almost a combination of the two parent's names and were proud of it. When the mother was well enough, they set back home.

    Main Story: Half a year after Mariana's Birth, the FX300 AGLR was now officially hosted to AG fans on Makana. Classic teams including new teams like Triakis and Harimau were introduced along with the professional league, and Mariana's father competes professionally for his racing career in 2197. The first AG-tournament hosts on the track of Vineta K, with Olivia now 3yrs old and Mariana turning 2. They went with their mother to their father's race live for the first time. In addition to their father's race, they got to see the hangers under the starting grid before the race began and saw their father get in the cockpit of FEISAR's X2 race craft. After saying good luck to him, the two sisters and their mother all head up to the stands, sitting in the front row where they saw their father's craft lift up onto the starting grid. The sisters would wave to him seeing their father in the cockpit wave back. Eventually the starting grid began to countdown as they saw their father launch out of the line and out on the track with the other opponents. Momentarily they saw his craft zoom by on every lap, watching him on the projected monitors battling out with the other teams on their way to the finish. Their father would make 2nd place that day, continuing on with the Alpha tournament on the island and winning gold overall for his family.

    By 2197, Mariana turned 3yrs old. One day already talking, she went up to her father while he was admiring the FEISAR race craft out on a lot during a race event in the same city. She looked up at her father, wondering what he is doing.
    Mariana: "Daddy, what are you doing?" speaking in a toddler voice.
    Her father looked at her, "Oh nothing, Angel, I was just thinking about… what you might become one day."
    Mariana was confused:"What do you mean daddy?"
    Her father picks her up on his arms: "Well… daddy has a little tradition in his side of the family. When I was your age, my daddy once told me that someday, I was going to race in these … big things. I wasn't too interested in what he said it at first, but he showed me how to fly these, and I then became just as good as him. His father also taught him, and his dad taught him too. Your Daddy's family have been racing for many years, and someday, you'll be flying these things too."(Father puts helmet on her)
    Mariana just looks at him:"But I'm too little to fly these floaty thingies."
    Her father just chuckles: "Oh.. not right now of course, but I think someday you would be big enough to fly these, Angel. You'll make your daddy proud if you did."

    Just as her father had thought, Mariana didn't look interested, even when he told her sister it turned out to be the same reaction. For Mariana however, she had another interest in mind. While walking with her mother that same day, Mariana had noticed a couple of race models with the other teams. In Mariana's mind, she wanted to become a model, mostly a dancer, standing next to her father's craft and copied the girl's poses. But when people past by, she would quickly hide behind the stands for the craft. Mariana was very shy, but when people passed by they would notice her hiding, sometimes asking her to come out. While soon being noticed, Mariana slowly would come out and try to pose for a group of people, even doing a little dance. What she got were a lot of smiles, even some handing her coins for her little performances. She soon shook off her shyness and really began to perform a show to people, having a circle surrounding her. Her parents then began to notice the large circle around the craft, as they saw nothing but their daughter dancing around to her new fans. What her parents saw was the start of her new career.

    Of course, the Sinclair's had money; whatever Mariana wanted they will always give to her, being very spoiled. The FEISAR team gave her a specially made jacket/outfit with the team's colors and symbol. She was also given a wand to trace light in mid air, including a ribbon with a light blue stripe to wear with her ponytail. What she turned out to be was like an AG-Cheerleader, using all the gifts that were given to her. On behalf of her gifts though, she can do whatever she wanted in any race day happening on the island of Makana. She could dance/sing on stage, meet with her team's pilots, and could even countdown for a race, including her father's, becoming an icon to the sport. As she got older her fame and recognition started to grow, taking notice by company sponsors for her and her team, one of which was JAP Energy Drink which they also made her do a commercial for their product. She would now get paid for her career, officially calling herself an Anti-Gravity Queen, a new type of race model that she could setup her own rules of being one, making her the founder of the new trend. Not only did she made it for modeling and starting races, but mostly performing a style of dancing using light tracing wands, patons, or string to fast paced trance music, plus dancing with other AG-Q performers on the same team. A good example to AG-Queen dancing was a cross between Gymnastics and Rave, using alot of arm and leg movement & rhythm in their performances. Sometimes Ballet would be performed on slow or euphoric parts in certain songs giving emotional or storytelling moments to crowds while taking off in gymnastic-like movements as the beat starts playing again. The wands they carried have a special technology that can paint light in mid air, whether it's night or day, the light will still be visible. They can switch to painting trails or set it like streamers; this was also used to start races. Sometimes an AG-Queen would have their outfits light up or animated in certain performances, most of which are custom made than the standard suits starting out. Mariana would explain how this style of dance worked, using a hologram of herself or teaching others in person. Other peers and young women as well as small number of men would be inspired to become AG-Queen/King performers for other teams in 2205, becoming a popular new fashion/entertainment trend to the AG-Industry. This was also the same year the official opening of the FX350 racing league began happening around the world.

    The racing league would quickly upgrade to the FX400 by 2207. Mariana was turning 14yrs old and was now setting off on a global stage, traveling across the world to other tracks hosting AG Tournaments for her to perform. Dancing all around from Moa Therma (Italy), to Talons Junction (England). From Metropia (Japan) to the Amphisium (United States, Nevada), etc. With so many places she could travel to, many cultures were able to see her live on tour, yet she didn't go on stage alone however. During sometime back in mid 2206, Mariana met with another young AG-Queen coming from the province of Italy before an opening season. During a surprise visit to an AG-Queen dance class in Vineta A, A young and petite AG-Queen named Sofia Rossetti caught her attention while doing a duet with her in front of the other students. She was an AG-Queen representing AG-Systems showing her badge, possibly the only Italian AG-Queen to be on this team having Japanese dancers as their most common. Rossetti liked the color red on her outfit which was why she chose her team, not familiar with the choices when she came to the island. Mariana was impressed by their demonstration as she asked Sofia if she wanted to hang out around the campus. Sofia agreed as their friendship grew throughout the 2206 season. After months of getting to know Sofia and even helping her train as an independent AG-Queen, she officially introduced her as a new best friend back in Makana, becoming the first ever AG-Queen duet to perform, coming from other teams. They were the memorable Queens of 2207-08 where Sofia had also made a name for herself in between the FX350 and 400 AGRL. Unfortunately after a year and a half in a friendly relationship, Sofia would leave the league and Island for personal reasons. Saying goodbye to Mariana, the two never saw each other again in person, but kept in contact on ICOM over the years.

    Eventually, Mariana moved on from her old best friend; while she was signing in again as an AG-Queen at the Anti Gravity Museum in Modesto Heights in 2208, she accidently bumps into another signed in AG-Queen named Rachel Vega. She was an American farm girl coming from the central farmlands of California, United States, who came to the big city for the first time to become an AG-Queen herself for Auricom. The two start to talk to each other as Mariana showed Rachel around the museum. Soon after, they started to hang out, and when the first tournament of the fall season started, the two then became best of friends. Like Sofia, Rachel was an AG-Queen for another team though she was a little taller and older than Mariana. From 2208 to 2209, they also became dance partners of that current year. While meeting Rachel around that time, Mariana also met with a German FEISAR pilot named Griffin Lang, who would become her teammate after signing herself as a junior pilot for the JX350 league in the name of her father's ancestry, continuing the tradition to become the first female in the family to compete professionally in the AGRL.

    As her name grew from around the world, everyone would fall in love with her having the largest fan base out of all the AG-Queens from every competing team. Everyone literally treated her like a queen with many fans offering her gifts and requests during her shows. They praised her for her talents and beauty, not having enough of her as she moved on to the next track on her tours, getting the same reactions every time she came and went, becoming a worldwide celebrity and an icon for FEISAR. However, because of her nonstop popularity and fame, she would develop an ego over her AG-Queen reputation. She started to turn self-centered, believing that she WAS like a goddess in the industry, better than the rest of the other AG-Queens around the island, including her friends. When it now came to racing, that would show as well, feeling important in both areas always obsessed to be the best and complains whenever things didn't go her way. In 2209, Mariana would turn 16. Her special gift from her father and team gave her first dibs on piloting FEISAR's new prototype concept craft back at the AG-Academy. First being taught by her father including basic piloting tips from Griffin Lang and Noelani Kekumu from Goteki 45, Mariana was already learning quickly on flying an AG-Race craft. However, she wasn't ready or too young to take on FX division races just yet, staying in the junior division up until 2210. Her current speed class was under Vector (Below 200mph) only entering for time trials while still training at the Academy and racing with other team pilots. Even so, racing was in her blood, taking from her father's side of the family. She would become the youngest pilot to ever race for the FX400 racing league, able to compete professionally at the age of 17, that is until another young pilot had taken her title at age 16, let along her AG-Queen ranking.

    Still racing in the JX division at the time, Mariana was met with a young British AG-Queen/ pilot joining the FEISAR team named Loraine Johnson. Loraine was the granddaughter of F9000 pilot, Daniel Johnson, witnessing her birth on August 2195. He unfortunately was a paralyzed victim of the Temtesh Bay Disaster in 2164, only to retire after on a hover chair, never to race again. Loraine however would become the next generation in the family hoping to compete for the FX400/500 racing league just like Mariana. She was trained a year younger than her at the age of 15, piloting FEISAR's current X4 race craft at the same test track in the Makanian AG-Academy, learning very quickly herself. During the opening of the AG-season at the Amphiseum in Las Vegas, Loraine also became an AG-Queen for FEISAR along with Mariana. Loraine would come up and give a friendly introduction to her, being a fan of her work and looking up to her, inspired to become an AG-Queen and pilot. Mariana did introduce herself to her, but at the same time she didn't seem to like Loraine first greeting her. During the current year, Mariana was arrogant and competitive, following her AG-Queen stats formed in 2208. Every AG-Queen on the island now carried a ranking like an AG-pilot, and unsurprisingly the founder was ranked first on the leaderboard as Mariana wanted to keep it that way. Loraine had already taken the title of youngest AG-Pilot, it was only a matter of time until she started taking something else important to Mariana.

    Loraine was known as a relative of a past pilot, so her attention was noticed of that to everyone. Not only was she well known, but a pure beauty also. For being a teenager she was the most favorite to AG-fans, with blond hair, sapphire blue eyes, and a polite British accent. Her dancing also looked more graceful to her choice of uplifting trance music, almost telling a deeper emotion or story in her performances. To Mariana, she was stealing her spotlight. Even though she was her teammate and fan, she dispised Loraine because she was perfect, even as a pilot she had a better racing line. Mariana never wanted to admit that she was jealous of her, including her friends. Instead, she tried to be better than her, proving to her fanbase that she could be just as good if not better. However despite her efforts, when the AG-Queen leaderboard was updated, Mariana witnessed her worst fear. Looking at a live news screening in Vineta K. Loraine had bumped her down a rank and was now the #1 AG-Queen in the world as a one year wonder. Mariana was in shock looking at the screen. She was with Rachel when they saw it as she began to worry about Mariana, looking devastated.

    Rachel answers to her: "Mariana? Are you ok? Mari?"
    Mariana: "I… I forgot something back at the suite. I'll be right back."
    Rachel (as Mariana walks off): "Do you need me to come with you!?"
    Mariana: "Just leave me alone!"

    Rachel looked back at her, confused and worried. Mariana runs back to her hotel suite alone, locking the sliding door as she jumps on her bed screaming at the top of her lungs under her pillow and throwing a tantrum. From this point on, her mind was now set for sabotage. On some days as an AG-Queen, Mariana attempts to cheat by sabotaging Loraine's performances. While backstage seeing her wands one day, Mariana screws with the wiring taking them apart by making them break or over trace. Another point was over-rubbing wax on Loraine's dance shoes, making them slippery or sometimes changing the music tempo or song in the middle of her performances. Unfortunately for Mariana, all of those would fail when Loraine improvised or had replacements before performing. Loraine continued to gain fans and opportunities as well as taking Mariana's own fans, going over to support for her instead. At this point, Mariana was frustrated and desperate. Her popularity was slowly decreasing every day and even her frustration would show in performances, filling her anger on her dance moves as well has her choices of music playing more hardcore trance beats. Eventually, she had enough of it, thinking of dark thoughts on how to sabotage if not getting rid of Loraine from her life. A race qualifier for the JX division was opening in Vineta K at some point. Loraine signs herself for the event, only for Mariana to get her chance to attack her. Not knowing anyone who can do her dirty work, she instead planned to do it herself by sabotaging Loraine's craft somehow, having it fail out on the track. She wanted to make it look like an accident and for Loraine to be out of commission for the race if not possibly seriously injuring her. She would plan carefully the next day.

    During the day when she and Loraine were in the hanger bay along with the team's crew, Mariana studied her surroundings and under her own FEISAR craft for anything to mess up on Loraine's, even innocently asking questions to mechanics about what's under there for information until she found one thing she could tamper with. She spotted a drilling tool on a counter that could be used, as well as spotting an HD camera in the hanger which would only make it harder for her to pull off until finding a blind spot behind Loraine's craft. Once the hanger was about to be closed, Mariana had an idea on how to sneak back in. Before long in the middle of the night, hours before the JX qualifier in Vineta K. Mariana got herself dark clothing, gloves, and used her VIP hanger key to get inside the hanger. Knowing about the camera, she covers her face with a hood, looking away and hiding under Loraine's craft. She looked under the craft for anything that may be important, trying to remember what the mechanic told her until finding a cable from a reactor that powered the main magnetic field generator centered under the craft. She found the electric drill tool to carefully loosen the bolts from a cable connected to the generator to where it will fall off by the movements of the craft, disconnecting the cable leaking any power going to the magnet. She immediately left the hanger before anyone showed up, but was suddenly feeling anxious. Hours later, already suited up, Loraine took a test run out on the track. After 3 laps in on a final lap, Loraine felt like something was wrong, only to be notified by crew that a cable got loose and was disconnected from the main field generator. When she entered the second corner on a lap, her ship was losing gravitational lift as the craft dropped down and started skidding on the track. Unable to manually teleport eject on time she slammed into the side wall outside the first tunnel. Mariana was actually shocked that her tampering went horribly wrong or unexpected, thinking she would have ejected out. The crash looked fatal, as Mariana didn't want it to be this bad, feeling scared that she may had actually killed her. Loraine wouldn't have survived, but amazingly, she crawled out of the cockpit before paramedics came by. She only had minor cuts and bruises, but unfortunately suffered a fractured leg while trying to stand up. If she were to have gone faster than Vector class without shield energy, she would have gotten killed by the impact. However, though only intending to try and mess up Loraine's AG-Craft for the whole season, Mariana had also put Loraine out of commission as an AG-Queen, not being able to dance, temporarily.

    From Mariana's Diary over the accident she caused: "I was not proud of what I did, but I just couldn't control myself. She had it coming and I needed to do something. After what happened today and seeing her craft crashed on the track wall in Vineta K, it was just hard to watch. I thought I had killed her, and that was something I did not had in mind, honestly. If people knew about this, my career would be over, people will picture me like I'm some murderer and I can't let that happen to my reputation. Hopefully nobody will know about this, but it seems that the trouble has already been done. This was all that Little Miss Perfect's fault, if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have done that sort of thing. She should be glad to be still alive, all I wanted was to teach her a lesson not to cross my path, and she got it. There could only be one star AG-Queen in this world and that should always be me, my crown, my rules. I will always be the master. I'm just gonna keep myself quiet about what happened, nobody will know it was me that caused that accident. It will be old news in about a week and I won't feel guilty about it. I don't ever want to do that again. I know I'm better than her. I'll be #1 AG-Queen again, and soon as a pilot."

    Mariana Sinclair: March 18th, 2211

    A couple days had past and Loraine was still walking in crutches. Ship inspection was checked on the damaged race craft and discovered that the main magnetic field generator was disconnected. The bolts were loosened somehow, connecting a cable from the reactor as it hanged off while racing. It was unknown how it was caused. Knowing they were screwed in tight, it appeared they'd been loosened before takeoff. Looking over security footage in the hanger, they saw a person under a dark hood tampering with the ship's components. The hooded person had a feminine looking body, confirming it to be a female. But despite how clear and advanced the camera was, the hooded person kept her face hidden as if she knew where the cameras were, making Mariana's sneak through successful, only to realize if she were to be caught, her reputation would take a big negative hit from AG-fans. Loraine was shocked, but confused while still looking at the footage: "Who would want to do this to me? Was her intention to kill me like it was an accident? This is scary. Someone is after me, but who?" Loraine thought to herself, still hoping to race in the later FX league. Mariana however did felt guilty about the accident, she slowly realized what her popularity was doing to her, but her jealousy and reputation still controlled her. Months after the accident, Loraine had already recovered and continued to be an AG-Queen for FEISAR. Unfortunately, after taking most of the spotlight, Mariana had finally snapped. While in her suite, Mariana came over to her door almost wanting to start a fight with Loraine. She just continued to argue, but Loraine was confused why. Mariana's jealousy got the best of her as she now admits that Loraine had stolen her popularity and attention, even admitting that she tampered with Loraine's craft. After hearing that confession, Loraine couldn't believe what she heard. Her own teammate / idle had betrayed her, thinking she attempted to kill her out of jealousy. By now, the two really started to argue, and was when Loraine finally had enough and felt unsafe being near her. She leaves the team, both pilot and AG-Queen to join with another, finding a spot with Harimau International, FEISAR's allied teams. Just days later, French pilot, Clara Bellerose took Loraine's place chosen by Griffin, as Mariana thought Loraine had left for good, but her guilt still stayed, trying to ignore the feeling.

    Years have now past as Mariana turns 18 in 2212, racing for about a year in the FX400 Racing league. She was still one of the most competitive and hot tempered pilots on the track, including to her nemesis on the Harimau team. It was when in 2215, where she now moved on to the official FX500 league at age 21. She was reunited with her prototype race craft, the X5, competing in the highest speed class, Phantom (below 500mph) along with her squadmate Griffin Lang, becoming one of the most experienced young pilots in AG-History just aside from pilot Arial Tetsuo from 2052 in the F3600 league. However, Mariana continued also as an AG-Queen, stepping up as a supermodel for fashion companies including 2ND SKIN, but that's not to say Loraine would also have the same interest. Mariana and Loraine would be the bitterest of rivals of the FX400 to 500 AGRL as they personally went head to head with each other during their race seasons. Though blinded by their hate with one another, they were evenly matched, including having the same type of interest. Most fans would suggest that they should team up again, speaking to them on social sites like ICOM, but they, mostly Loraine would disapprove. Their racing careers in hating and misunderstanding each other would still go on till this day. On that same year however, Mariana also meets with a familiar face again.

    During a night out at a Joy Noodles bar with her friend/ally and teammate, Mariana would accidently bump into her old best friend, Sofia Rossetti along with her new AG-Systems teammates, Katsu and Sean, becoming a pilot herself. They were both happy to see each other after 7 years and admired how much they've changed since their last AG-Queen starting race back in 2208 as teenagers. Though Sofia was originally going to sit with her teammates, she instead went along with Mari's group at another table leaving her team sitting at a counter. They talked and introduced each other with Rachel and Griffin, having a good time and shared their stories until Sofia left with her team after the bill was paid. Mariana would meet her later on again, this time for old time sakes having a duet as AG-Queens on a stage with Sofia still keeping her experience. However, Mariana's competitiveness would show as she tried to out-dance and taunt her.

    As the dance was over and back at the lockers, Sofia questioned Mariana only for her to make a remark: "What's the matter, couldn't keep up? You could do better than that."
    Sofia confusingly got upset: "What was that about?"
    Mariana: "Come on, Sofie, what's wrong with a little motivated taunting? Do you want me to beat you? I could do this faster than you could pilot an AG-craft on Phantom class speeds. You need to sharpen up on your skills, slowpoke."
    Sofia: "Slowpoke? Mari this is not like you, why you acting rude suddenly?"
    Mariana: "I think you need to work on that grammar alittle there, Sofie. Your English was kind of off."
    Sofia: "Did you listen what I just said?"
    Mariana: "Look, things have changed in the AG-Queen division okay. I was just trying to motivate you, that's all. It's nothing personal or to get upset about."
    Sofia: "I just do not like how you made those faces at me, va bene? I am going back to the academy. I will see you next time"
    Mariana: "Okay, I guess I'm sorry that I did that to you then, I'll see you some other time maybe." (Sofia left confused)

    It's no surprise to pilots who have faced her would come across her taunting, even on podiums taking gold she would wave her medal to the other place finishers' faces as well as sticking her tongue at them. By the end of 2215, fans start to realize her sweet hearted personality was now nonexistent. Like a popstar with a big ego, Mariana became one of the rudest, immature and egotistical female pilots and AG-Queens in the entire FX500 league. Till this day, AG-Fans were mixed about her, whether they now hate her or love her. Despite her good girl gone bad change over, she was still a very skilled pilot to FEISAR as well as the most talented AG-Queen, keeping her reputation overall. For her teammates, Griffin still raced alongside her, even He himself carried a big ego much like her with fans and haters. Their backup pilot, Clara Bellerose would move on from their squad, retiring from racing all together after more issues with nausea occurred while racing, only to pursue her interest in the arts instead using her augmented vision, making a final decision if to continue her racing career or not. Mariana would almost go independent after Clara retired, but instead she chose to stay anyway yet doesn't communicate with Griffin as much than before in races. She had no actual allies from other teams until she was introduced to a pilot that was once Griffin's friend. Griffin would meet his old friend and test pilot partner Valentino Bergamisto, who transferred to Qirex-RD back in 2214 after the FX350 division of the SFC. She liked what she saw looking at Valentino's hansom looks, immediately talking to him in a flirty voice and mentioning of being a star AG-Queen, feeling like showing off her body in her AG-Q suit for him. Valentino wouldn't notice her coquettish behavior as he greeted her normally, going off with Griffin soon after, not seeing him for awhile since. While Mariana tried to "make a new friend", her friends however were another story. Allies like Rachel Vega would finally move on from her, unable to deal with her rude behavior as well as cooperation in races getting shoved aside every time. Sofia Rossetti would also move on, but it wasn't until she was visited at her home that made Sofia stay away from her.

    Mariana was living at her own home still in Vineta K only to get a message from her home's computer that someone was at her door. She saw who it was and opens the door automatically to let Sofia in her high-end stilt home.

    Coming in the living room, Mariana answered: "What are you doing here?"
    Sofia, sounding upset with her: "We need to talk."
    Mariana: "Can it be another time cause I'm quite busy right now. I can have my robot servant serve you something if you want…"
    Sofia Interrupts her: "It is about Loraine, and everything else I heard about you."
    Mariana froze and answers: "…What did that b*tch tell you?"
    Sofia: "Is there reason why you would call her such thing? What about Rachel and Sean, what did you do to them?"
    Mariana: "I don't know what you're talking about. And why did you have to bring up Rachel at this time, she stopped being my friend for no reason."
    Sofia: "Is it because she cannot stand you anymore? Has your rude behavior made her not want to be your friend and ally?"
    Mariana: "I don't know."
    Sofia: "And Sean, did you use him to your advantage just so you could win races while he thought you were his ally the whole time? I suppose that robot over there is what Sean fixed for you."
    Mariana:"Where the hell are you going with this?"
    Sofia: "You are not who I thought you were, Mari. You have change so much but not in the way people would view you. You manipulate everyone, used everyone, you will hurt anyone, to keep your rise in fame. The Mariana I knew would never do such thing. But what you did, to that British pilot, ..I do not know what to ask you next."
    Mariana got nervous: "Whatever she told you are all lies. I did nothing wrong. You can't prove what I did."
    Sofia: "I do not need proof to believe that you could go at this level. From all the stories I heard and how the industry thinks of you now. I just cannot believe you would actually do this."
    Mariana: "I didn't do anything."
    Sofia: "Please tell me the truth, Mari, That qualifier back in 2211, Loraine got into an accident that almost took her life. I talked to her, and she told me all about it. That was no accident."
    M:"It was an accident, Sofie. Like I said she's lying to you just to put the blame on me. I'm innocent, alright."
    S: "Really. How come there was footage of someone tampering with her ship then?"
    M: "…That was not me."
    S: "So who did it them? Only someone who would really hate her would do something like that, right. Someone who got in the way of their fame by her. Someone who was jealous of her. That person did look feminine looking on camera."
    M: "What makes you think I did it? This is ridiculous."
    S: "Why do you always attack her in races then? Like I said last time, I saw you in the same race together, you were focus on eliminating her than the race. There is a big rivalry between you two so how did that happen? Why would she transfer to another team if she felt unsafe around you? There is no one else I would know who could hate her this much except maybe you."
    M: "It's not me."
    S: "You have the motivation to do so."
    M: "It's not me!"
    S: "Something was bothering you about her and it is because of those reasons? All the clues lead right to it. She was more famous than you, and you wanted to stop it but just could not. So you try to do it the best way possible, by killing her off."
    M: "…I didn't want to kill her."
    S: "So you did do it then."
    M: "Yes.. Imean no,.. I don't know?!"
    S: "Just tell me the truth. Did you cause that accident?"
    M stood up: "I did, okay. You happy?!"
    Sofia continues:"Why Mari?"
    M: "Why? You already know why. Cause I was angry. I was jealous. Everywhere I went, hear and saw, she was everywhere. I was on top of the world. Everyone loved me and me only. Then she shows up out of nowhere, and then she becomes the popular AG-Queen. Her? Really!? They like her over me!? What is so special about her? Nothing. How dare they choose someone that was mediocre. It should be all about me. I'm the star AG-Queen, I'm the best pilot, but she had to follow me there too. That f*cking b*tch drove me crazy! And now holding my AG-Queen crown, that was it. I tried doing better and that didn't work. I tried to cheat and that didn't work. That little miss perfect always finds a way around what I do and continues to take all my fans no matter what. I had no choice after that. She drove me to do something that I thought I would never do. That one race she was trying to qualify, I had to stop her somehow. So I did tinker with her AG-craft, just abit. I didn't know what was gonna happen, I just did it. Then I see her craft crashed on that side wall, I was actually shocked when that happened, and I caused it. Did I wanted to kill her? Maybe I did maybe I didn't, and told her straight to her f*cking face and I apologized. So yeah, whatever she told you it was true. Do I feel guilty, of course I do, but do I have to admit to everyone, no, cause that will be the end of my entire career, and that will never happen as long as everyone forgot about the whole incident that no one will ever find out except her and now you. I will do anything to get back my crown back, and you will not stand in my way of it, even if it means hurting my own best friend. Don't make me do that to you."

    All this time while Mariana confessed and stood up, Sofia was becoming frightened of her, even while slowly approaching Sofia as she steps backwards and near the front door.

    Sofia after the confession: "You are turning into un mostro, Mari. What has happen to you? I cannot recognize you no more."
    Mariana: "Don't you understand? My name in the industry has more importance than you think, Sofie. For every AG-Queen that stands before me I'm like a goddess to them of this household trend in the racing league. I made the sport more exciting for everyone. Without me, the sport wouldn't be as it is now."
    Sofia: "That is not true. We, as in every AG-Queen did all that. Even if you did not find this trend the racing league would still be the popular international sport it is and has been for more than a century. It was not always about you."
    Mariana: "It was about me. Every racing fan fell in love with me alongside, and I should continue that."
    Sofia talking back: "We all should, not just you! ..You are not always the center of attention all the time, what matters is that the industry, the pilots, teams, AG-Queens including us, are what bring excitement to the sport. We only brought part of it. It was never always about you. Everything just got to your head and all it did was change you for the worst. I should be frighten by what you did, but you just disappoint me the more you confess. Vergogna. Loraine was right, you ARE selfish, you deserve to lose your crown and have it be given to her. She is a better influence than you are to the other dancers, including the pilots of the racing league. I rather look up to her than you no more. We are done."
    Mariana still approaching her at the door: "Then get out of my house, and never come back."
    Sofia near the switch: "Just think of how many fans you will disappoint. Someday you will lose yourself in front of everyone."
    Mariana: "Get Out!"

    Sofia ran out and away from her property. Mariana knew she had lost another friend after that, but now she didn't care anymore, thinking about herself.

    It was a week later when the 2216 AG-Queen Performing Championship started at the Vineta A's Entertainment Arena which housed tracks like Anaulpha Pass. An arena built for the AG-Queen performances opened 4 years ago in 2212 as the trend became official to the league. Aside from the racing of 4 tracks built in the arena, the AG-Queen center stage was the main battleground for AG-Queen performances in Makana. Holograms and projections were exclusively built on the stage, even the stage was abit bigger than usual going around 16m on each side for more running space. Certain gadgets were also exclusive for the stage aside from the usual wands and gloves. Clubs, string, even hoops were an addition to the sport with the performers able to switch gadgets at anytime on stage. The championships would host every yearly much like the Season Final Championships for the pilots. 12 of the superstar AG-Queens from each team would compete based on points similar to rhythmic gymnastics, only for the queens to have 3 chances including a finally. Duets of different teams were also an addition, representing unity for the teams even during a time of war between Qirex and the AG-Teams of the Belmondo Foundation, but most of the time they were solo. Mariana competed every year, only to come second a few times from her rival Loraine. Now it would appear that a new rival would come on the leaderboard, and that rival was Sofia, representing AG-Systems. Whichever AG-Queen of a certain team wins gold would host their AG-Team at the Amphiseum for the opening season.

    The performing championships of course were the most important thing to Mariana. Even if she lost to Loraine several times in the past or failed to sabotage while Loraine knew she'll do such a thing avoiding her attempts, she was not prepared to see what Sofia could do. Though out of it for awhile and just getting back into it when dancing with Mariana that last time, Sofia's official comeback started here now with a newly designed outfit matching the liveries of the new AG-Systems craft. Mariana, who once smiled back at her coming on stage now makes a face of displeasure anytime she now saw her. What made it more irritating now was Sofia choosing Loraine as a dance partner for one out of the 3 performances. The rest of the queens in the competition, not even Rachel would choose to dance with Mariana for the duet rounds of the championship. However, she didn't need a partner taking on all three rounds on her own. Once the championship almost came to an end, Mariana on the leaderboard was dropping down as usual with Loraine on top. However, Sofia was yet to perform her finally currently in back of Mariana on the leaderboard. M & L were close in points only for Sofia to have an impressive enough performance to pass both and taking gold. Suddenly something surprising happened when Loraine spoke from the awarded lineup.

    As Mariana stood along, Loraine stepped up to a mic as Sofia was given the Gold medal. Having an announcement to make, even complimenting Sofia's 3 performances, Loraine got an impression from her, including remembering their race during a tournament more than a week back. They talked before the competition; learning Sofia's history and exceeding expectations, Loraine decided to pass on her AG-Queen crown to her, shocking the audience as well as Mariana. Sofia looked confused about the offer, but Loraine thought she would be the better AG-Queen over her and the future. Mariana was disgusted. Going around backstage with other AG-Queens and stagehands blinded by rage, Mariana attacked Sofia, as well as Loraine. She knocks Loraine to the ground, hitting her and pulling her hair. Security was called in to break up the fight with Loraine battered including Sofia with acouple bruises. Mariana had lost it; Rachel also witnessed the fight left feeling disappointed of Mariana being taken away. Stupid of her to attack in public, floating camera bots there recorded the whole thing. The incident goes on AG-News networks moments later starting a scandal.

    Mariana was bombarded with media and paparazzi the next day surrounding her home. Hiring bodyguards, they escorted her to a Blimp Airport taking her to America for the 2216 Season Final Championship of the FX500 AGRL. People still bothered her on the airship on the way over even while landing. Mariana's reputation may had slightly degraded for her exposed rude personality, but attacking Loraine and Sofia was something no one would suspected of her from the AG-Queen community. It also didn't help her that Loraine and Sofia were also interviewed acouple days later. Loraine would finally admit that Mariana did worse things in the past when around her, blaming her now for her accident in 2211 with Sofia believing her despite better times with Mariana before. Unfortunately for them despite video evidence still of the craft tampering in the hangers with investigation currently unsolved, there was still no evidence or identification that the suspect was her, relieving Mariana. However that didn't stop more cameras from following her, now asking her of the alleged involvement. Ironically, she was now getting more attention again but all for the wrong reasons. The SFC was only a few days away; landing in Las Vegas was still the same as coming on the airship. For once in her lifetime, Mariana said something that she thought would never come out of her mouth in public. "Leave me alone!"

    Despite running away from cameras, there was one thing she couldn't run away from and that was her guilt. At her suite at the Amphiseum she was met by an interviewer who was an investigator. Mariana couldn't refuse, thinking there was no cameras she agreed to do a private interview but was taking place in another room on another floor of the hotel. She was asked to sit down on a chair, only for her to realize there was one more seat aside from the interviewer's. Mariana got slightly nervous after afew questions, though kept herself talking like she wasn't guilty of anything. Unfortunately for her, the interviewer would ask her tricky questions about Loraine, how the rivalry started, why she attacked her and Sofia at the end of the AG-Queen Championship. She lies by making up certain stories and excuses. However, unknowing to her, the interviewer knew she was lying, but for the main question, the interviewer called someone in. The person who came in was Sofia.
    Mariana asked: "What the hell is going on here?"
    Sofia had something in her wrist and showed it to Mariana. It was a digital computer watch with a hidden voice recorder. Realizing what it was, it was the thing that could end more than just her career in both AG-Queen and pilot.

    Mariana: "What the hell is that?"
    Sofia answers: "I am sorry, Mari. I had to do it. From what I heard, and you trusting me, I was prepared from the start. What I have here was what I recorded back at your home. Everything you told me is all in this watch on my hand."
    Mariana: "But how did you.."
    Sofia: "It is Sean's, I told him if he let me use it after telling me what it was, uses it for work at his home. It was on my wrist the whole time."
    Mariana:"So you set this up on me?"
    Sofia: "It is for your own good, Mari, but you can still get out of this with few consequences. You have a chance to keep what you still have if you just admit now."
    Mariana: "And what If I don't? What does it matter if I confess? Everything I said is on that watch. My careers are already done for."
    Sofia: "You just got to tell the truth, Mari. I did not want to give this recording to officials at first just so you could keep your two careers in the league, hoping you'll admit yourself. But after what happened a week ago, what you did to Loraine, and me, I lost hope for you."
    Mariana, shedding a tear:"What's gonna happen to me?"
    Sofia: "I wish I knew. But if you're still my migliorie amica, if you care about your fans and have Loraine or Rachel possibly forgive you, then you will confess to this person now or never. Did you cause the failure to Loraine's AG-craft? Did you wanted to kill her that day?"

    Mariana Confesses to interviewer/investigator: "Yes. Yes I did cause that accident back in 2211. I messed up her craft myself in the hanger on that video. I was the reason why she left FEISAR. I was so jealous, angry, she was better than me at everything and I always wanted to win no matter what. I guess in the back of my mind I did want to kill her when she was voted #1 AG-Queen. I just couldn't control myself. I wanted to keep my name on the very top of that AG-Queen leaderboard. I wanted everyone to keep loving me like back when I was a little girl. I just loved the endless attention and wanted more of it. 'you'll always be #1' my parents always told me, and I took It seriously. I felt like I failed them including daddy who was a pilot for FEISAR. They gave me everything I've always wanted, they gave my AG-Queen career and I found it for everyone, but no one should take it from me, and Loraine did just that. I swear to god I did feel guilty for what I tried doing to her that day but I was so scared to lose everything I've worked for if I had confessed, and hid it from everyone but her and you (Sofia). Now look where it got me. I blame myself. I broke my own rules. How could I have been so selfish? I feel so f*cking stupid right now. Now everyone will hate me because of this. Please sir, don't arrest me, I'm so sorry." (Crying)

    The investigator and Sofia heard what they wanted to hear. While Mariana was trying to show sympathy, it wasn't going to help her at the slightest. Mariana was not arrested by American authorities for attempted murder of Loraine Johnson from 2211 considering it happened in Makana and to a British pilot. She did however receive major restrictions within the Belmondo foundation of the current league. She was disqualified from the SFC with Egyptian pilot, Khaled Ashour taking her place with Griffin Lang. She still kept both her AG-Queen and Pilot career, but her status was dropped. She was temporarily banned for both from a number of events and future championships by the end of the league in the 2220s. Realizing her loses, she now makes a public apology to her fans but would also lose respect from them aside from comebacks within the AGRL itself. Loraine Johnson would eventually make a return to FEISAR for both AG-Queen/pilot but never forgives Mariana including Rachel from Auricom. Sofia would also not forgive her, disappointed in her for everything she did overall. Mariana would have to live with this for the rest of her life.

    By 2217, Mariana continues on her AG-Queen career. Unfortunately for her, she would suffer a serious knee injury during her performances the following season. Her known competitors Loraine, Sofia and Rachel would hear the news of her injury. To Loraine she considered it deserved karma for her injured knee from the 2211 incident and fight. Mariana would retire from performing months later from continued problems of her knee injury. However she continues on as a pilot with FEISAR. During this time, the dispute between Qirex & allies against the Belmondo Foundation escalates with teams taking sides. FEISAR stays neutral between the race war, though pilots she knew like Rachel and Sofia were involved heavily. Mariana's reputation would slightly recover from fans in racing, but no one forgot about her scandal which still haunts her till this day. Surprisingly her ally Valentino would approach her, feeling a bit of sympathy over her miserable behavior. He would continue to comfort her throughout the seasons, and it is almost certain they would get together in the end regardless of her checkered past. Overall, Mariana has earned over 30 medals in her racing career (12G/14S/7B). Still determined to be the best and continue the Sinclair tradition, she'll have to make a lot of reputable comebacks if she were to get her racing career back in shape again.

    Early Life
    Born on August 27th, 2195 in Liverpool England, Loraine Johnson is known to be the granddaughter of past F9000 FEISAR pilot, Daniel Johnson, who witnessed the birth of his son’s daughter. She was only 2yrs old when the FX300 was hosted in Makana, and during that time she was still living in Liverpool just half way around the world. Her parents were happily together for a while, but unfortunately their marriage was not to last. When Loraine had turned 10 in 2205, they immediately filed for a divorce, leaving her to live with her grandparents in Makana while it was undecided which parent would take her. This was when Loraine had discovered more about AG-Racing, looking at her grandfather's history while also aiding him and her grandmother, Rachel Johnson, around their home. A veteran to FEISAR, Daniel had always told stories about his past to his granddaughter, knowing she had some interest in the sport and always came to him about it. However, Loraine had more interest of becoming a performer, taking opportunities as a cheerleader at school when she was a young teenager, which soon gave her the idea of becoming an AG-Queen, standing close to the action of the AGRL’s race events. Growing up, dancing sensation and founder, Mariana Sinclair, became an Idol to Loraine, inspiring her to perform for her grandfather’s team, and has hoped to meet her in person and dance alongside. Her grandfather seemed to approve of her interest by the summer of 2209, giving her the chance to sign up to be a junior AG-Queen for the FEISAR team and to receive her white/blue suit at the AG-museum in Modesto Heights.

    AG-Queen Career
    Loraine became what she had wanted, only to now take self schooling while starting off on her new performing career. This was when she had to travel to the United State in the fall for her first season, arriving for the opening that took place at the Amphiseum in 2210. She was nervous but excited, standing along with her age group of FEISAR AG-Queens and pilots. It was also there where she met her Idol Mariana in person, getting the opportunity to shake her hand while overall showing her talents and skills to a wider audience going up on stage with her group of dancers. Oddly to her, she seemed to have gotten lots more fans than expected, even topping it off with a paid sponsor in just one day. Because she was related to a famous AG-pilot, this may had given her the recognition along with these special offers, including a chance to pilot FEISAR's AG-race craft at the age of 15, just a year younger than Mariana Sinclair. Daniel had hoped for a family member to race for the next generation, but never thought his granddaughter would have an actual interest when telling her his past life. While Loraine wanted to continue to be an AG-Queen performer, she did want to participate in the JX350 league at the Makanian AG-Academy as the free offer stood. Doing it for her grandfather, she decided to carry on the Johnson legacy, starting in 2211.

    Start Of AG-Career / Accident
    From the looks of it, Loraine was considered too young to pilot such a large craft, but FEISAR was not worried, knowing their craft's abilities were easy to handle, especially for the junior pilots of the JX division. As such, Loraine didn't start off with the much higher speed classes, only to be required to fly on the slowest speed class possible using pilot assist. However, she decided to disable the assist during training, understanding how to use them around corners very quickly, getting early tips from her grandfather before she had started. It would take months to fully train a new pilot at an average skill level, but Loraine only took weeks to master the X4 FEISAR craft and exceeded to a semi professional level over her age group. She surprised the team during her final results, graduating from the academy with the same skill level as Mariana, who was also a prodigy pilot trying to compete at age 16. German FEISAR pilot, Griffin Lang, would choose Loraine for his squad on standby for the FX400 league, placing her as a potential third pilot. As she wondered who would be her teammate for the JX division, she was excited to hear that it was going to be Mariana to have her as a secondary. However, Mariana didn’t seem to have a reaction when paired up with the British prodigy, is as if she had some kind of dislike to her being around her circle of attention. Meanwhile, Loraine would enter by herself for a Junior Tournament on the island, but unfortunately, something terrible would happen during a qualifier.

    During a junior raceday at Vineta K, Loraine had set out on a qualifying run with her own FEISAR craft. As she went off on the track going around a few laps, she felt like something was wrong, feeling as though she was losing gravitational power. As she came to the final lap, it was when the team crew warned her that the reactor cable under her craft had gotten disconnected, coming towards the next corner as her craft started to shut down on her, dropping and skidding on the track ground. Loraine didn't think about manually pressing the EPR eject until it was too late. She slammed into the corner, flipping her craft upside down and skidded down the tunnel. Her fans, crew, and friends go quiet as she stopped skidding down below, thinking she was seriously injured or worse killed. Miraculously, Loraine crawled out of the wreckage battered and mildly bloodied, only to fall in pain from her left leg while standing up and waiting for paramedics to arrive. Having a fractured leg, she was required to use an exo-brace for a few weeks, but was considered very lucky by qualifying only on vector class speeds. Unfortunately, Loraine had to excuse herself as an AG-Queen, as well as a pilot for a certain time. However, what she assumed was an accident would turned out to be purposely caused, revealed by hanger cameras of an unknown person who tampered with her craft’s electronics the night before. Loraine kept cautious until she healed herself, only to discover who had actually tried to harm her that day.

    What it came to be of the mysterious culprit, Mariana Sinclair, her own teammate would angrily admit to tampering Loraine’s AG-craft while unexpectedly meeting her alone back at a hotel suite. It turned out that Mariana had secretly despised Loraine all this time, only to start back when she had first met her. Because Loraine had grown such a drastic following that had surpass Mariana’s own popularity as an AG-Queen alone, Mariana grew jealous of the new superstar performer/pilot to a point where she couldn’t stand hearing her name and talent, as well as seeing her own fans switching over to her. When the top AG-Queen rankings decided to place Loraine as the #1 AG-Queen, bumping down Mariana’s long streak for the first time, it became the final straw. She admitted to messing with Loraine’s dancing equipment at one point, only to have now done an unthinkable act to try and harm her by staging an accident on the track. After Mariana unashamedly explained that she didn’t want to specifically kill her, Loraine was utterly appalled. She didn’t believe that it was meant to sabotage her run, but rather was a desperate attempt to get rid of her over jealousy. Talking back and even calling her a “witch”, she wanted to leave the FEISAR team on both occupations just to distance herself from what was now her new arch rival. While Mariana thought she won by walking out of the room thinking Loraine was gone for good, she didn’t count on the thought of Loraine transferring teams overall. Loraine would do just about that, only to find a spot with ally/partner of FEISAR, Harimau International. Switching from blue to orange as both AG-Queen & pilot, she would now make her way to Malaysia to sign herself with the Southern Asian team, not regretting her decision.

    Arriving at the main headquarters / test track in Sepang, Loraine would meet with Harimau team principal, Manjula Vamatharen, looking over her results from FEISAR before she was given a squad to join. She looked very promising, even for a JX pilot; it was decided from here that she would officially compete for the FX400 professional racing league, bypassing the JX league at age 16, a year younger than Mariana who bypassed at 17. Right away, Vamatharen had a spot for her on the team and was sent to their testing grounds to meet with her new lead pilot. There she would meet Makanian AG-pilot Kaida Wong for the first time, who was also a biologist for the team's animal projects in the same facility. When meeting Kaida, she was the friendliest person Loraine had ever met as she began to talk about the team and their H5 model craft. Loraine would have her chance to pilot the craft the next day as she suited up in Harimau's pilot suit and equipment to prove what she could do. She met with Kaida on the test circuit piloting her own blue H6 craft, going around a few laps and testing their skills with one another to a point where they staged a race as a final test. As a result, Kaida was impressed by Loraine’s level of racing, getting use to the new craft having a slight boost of speed, but overall had felt the same to her when compared to her FEISAR X4. She was accepted to the squad with Kaida being her co-lead pilot, along with main lead Indonesian pilot, Jusef Suyanto. Though Harimau was only a "tree hugging" team to her, including being a minority over the Southern Asian pilots, she would try to dedicate herself to the team as much as possible, only to decide on an independent path by rarely entering team events with Kaida. Kaida meanwhile, would not mind at all of her choice going into the FX400 League.

    FX500 Transition
    Despite the transfer, Loraine’s fame with fans still remained the same, but left most of them confused why in the first place. She was unable to tell anyone the truth, thinking no one will believe that the most "sweet" and "Innocent" AG-Queen in the world tried to murder her over jealousy. Loraine was already mastering Rapier class by the age of 17 and has continued to expand her skills with the Harimau H6 craft throughout Asia and back at Makana. In 2212, she would meet the youngest male pilot in the FX400 league, Jacob Reilly of Icaras, and would actually develop a crush on the Irish pilot, only to ally with him in some races despite their teams having no ally relations. Races would still flare up when both Loraine and Mariana competed in the same race events. Because of Mariana's vexation of her, she would get aggressive with the British pilot to try and ram her off the track, only to mess it up on herself by hitting the track walls and having Loraine take the lead on certain events coming in the mid pack. The rivalry continued pass 2215 into the FX500 league, now piloting their team's latest AG-craft. Loraine also continued to be an AG-Queen part time, wearing the orange & blue rather than her usual FEISAR white during her performances. Overall as a pilot alone, Loraine will become one of the most competent young pilots to ever compete for the current AGRL, reaching elite rank that same year being compared to her biggest rival. Still till this day, no one is sure why these two began hating each other in the first place, only for it to resemble somewhat of a Tetsuo twin hostility from the F3600 era, minus the sibling aspect. However, Loraine will somehow find a way to reveal Mariana’s reprehensible secret, meeting a new pilot who was once her trusted friend that could possibly expose it to everyone.
    nson name will continue on in this post generation of Anti-Gravity Racing.

    Where Griffin Lang and Mariana Sinclair being the ones getting all the mainstream attention from FEISAR and fans in the AGRL one pilot in particular that had raced along their squad had never gotten the same recognition as them. She was a backup pilot for the squad that never got much needed help from the two pilots, yet it didn't seem she would mind at all, going her own career way independently. Clara Bellerose was the name of this pilot chosen by Griffin as a backup back in 2211. While Clara didn't have much experience with the 2 young FEISAR pilots, her squad needed another replacement after the squad's last wingman, Loraine Johnson had left for unknown reasons, being mandatory by FEISAR that they should have a third pilot. She was born on September 21st 2184 in a town miles outside of Paris, France. Like Mariana Sinclair, Clara grew up with a wealthy family. But instead of being spoiled like the young AG-Queen pilot, she was patient about money and earned her own wealth rather than asking for it from her parents who were much disciplined with her. While growing up however, her hobbies were into art, making her comfortable by visiting an art gallery every once in awhile in the town. Her inspirations also led her to do masterpieces of her own, mostly with digital holograms and sometimes with an old-fashion art canvas. Unfortunately, Clara began to have blurred vision as she got older, becoming hard to see while working on her projects every year. She does however wore contacts while continuing to work, but that was all she could use them for.

    Anti-Gravity would influence her while growing up; it's no doubt that she took her time also visiting amateur race events in certain parts of her country to find references for certain projects, sometimes bringing a stand and canvas on the spot and painting the craft on open lots as well as the track itself. As a young adult, after developing more into racing rather than creativity, she was confused of what she wanted to do in her life, spending most of her time in an art studio in a business apartment, or feel the g-forces on a high speed craft going to tracks around the world? Overall, art was just a hobby to her as she thought about it. Her parents didn't want to keep lending her money to pay the rent, and she didn't want to move back with them either. Her artwork never kept paying her despite some thousands earned from selling her work at auctions. She was mostly isolated in her apartment, only going outside to work on projects or visiting family while getting her food delivered by Mr. Somo drone deliveries which was common throughout western cities. Her final choice overall was the AGRL, registering herself at the FEISAR HQ obviously not too far from her as she had visited the facility few times before.

    In 2206 Clara went to FEISAR HQ for a class in training. The crew knew who she was when she walked into the lobby as Clara did made few art projects she had sold to the headquarters while visiting their local test tracks. She used the money from selling her art to the company, even seeing her artwork in the hallways in the building. She got accepted and supposedly showed good health signs to pilot a craft. For the next few years, she took time to train on the large craft on a test track in Paris. But while maneuvering the X3 FEISAR craft on the course, she started to become nauseous, and felt sick while taking corners, plus having blurred vision even while wearing contacts. She tried to ignore the symptoms, but just couldn't take it, almost vomiting inside the cockpit as she stepped out. Clara was not in good condition to pilot a racecraft after all. Almost feeling upset, she realized she could take certain medications to help with her motion sickness going back on the track. Unfortunately, they would wear off quickly. Clara would only become a test pilot overall in the facility, taking moments to fly around until she had enough feeling dizziness. What happened to her sometime a month later, she got transferred over to a facility all the way to Makana to test pilot the standby craft there for the JX junior division. There ships were slower than the ones she had piloted currently, thinking it would be easier for her to get behind. Once she confirmed her transfer details and booked a flight, she was now on her way.

    Moving to Makana in 2209 was a new experience for her as she left her home country with the team. By selling and moving out of her old apartment, her new space was located in the new city of Sinucit, much beautiful looking and clean than her old home. Being with FEISAR for at least 3 years as a trainee/test pilot, Clara was never too involved in racing due to her motion sickness on the track, her regular contacts didn't help much and she refused to take more medication. She couldn't stay on the track for more than an hour feeling like upchucking at a certain point until deciding to pit in. She could race but not for the longer race events if she entered the FX400. However she did enjoy piloting a craft and got paid at least for testing at the Makanian AG-Academy. If she wanted to race officially, she had to take bigger measures on her problem. Eventually she made an appointment with an ophthalmologist in her city. While there she was given a diagnosis despite already being diagnosed with astigmatism back in France. Clara tells her problems in racing to her doctor, only to get a response that her astigmatism wasn't the problem. She had different senses with her inner ears and eyes that cause these symptoms in flight, stating that it's a common problem for most. What had her to decide was an augmentation for her eyes to solve the problem, which would require surgery and removal of her natural eyes. The procedure will be permanent as it will rewire her senses as well as clear her vision. Usually these augmented eyes would have a built in computer that can be updated at anytime with a price. For a start however, these eyes would balance out her eyesight to her brain and inner ears, balancing and clearing her vision including enhanced/dehanced vision in dark or bright areas. But Clara only cared about getting rid of the motion sickness and paid for the lowest price offered to be installed. While Clara did felt nervous about the surgery part, she wanted to take the next step, knowing it will be worth it for racing and possibly her hobby. She planned her surgery a week after, and once it was done, she was surprised by the results. She was back on the track days later seeing very clearly with her new eyes, better and technological with a more saturated vision. She did however get a new eye color changing from brown to bright blue, even showing a light glow when under darkness. Her augmented eyes would actually get the attention of one young FEISAR pilot.

    Through the years piloting from Rookie to Amateur in the FX400 league, Clara was never as experienced as the professional racers in her row of pilots. While she was able to pilot a craft without dealing with motion sickness overall, it didn't meant she had gotten better at it. Her skills were still the same and below average for the FX400 league despite getting use to the X3 FEISAR craft. By her surprise, a young German FEISAR pilot would pick her as a backup for his squad. Griffin Lang was the pilot that chose her over the better choices he could have picked from the amateur lineup. During that time, he was close to being Elite in his career aside from his celebrity-like popularity over his charisma, followed by another younger female pilot, Mariana Sinclair who was an AG-Queen performer. Their squad needed another replacement pilot after one of their wingmen had left unknowingly, so Clara took the pilot's place. However, she continued to teach herself in the following events.

    In 2212, Clara received her own livery for her craft, recognized by piloting the yellow FEISAR X4 craft in the current league. While still being an Amateur pilot in the league, she always got a chance to compete in certain events. She had never won her first gold medal during this current season but managed to come in third during a tournament in the fall season of 2213, wearing the bronze medal for her first tournament. She would make an unsuspecting ally in the league coming from the African nations. Senegalese Assegai pilot, Leon Kadeem spoke her language, only to become an acquaintance outside the track, and very rarely meeting each other while on it.

    When Clara wasn't racing however, she was back at her apartment continuing her hobby, now inspired by painting references from the AGRL. She had never made enemies in the league, yet one pilot seemed to oppose her coming from Germany as well, racing for the Icaras team. Icaras pilot, Yvonne Schottel would pose somewhat of a challenge during events, though their tensions were never heated when met face to face. Both pilots show respect for one another but rarely spoke outside of racing. It's mostly their own teams that would push tensions on them considering their small rivalry in the racing league. How Clara reacts to the other pilots on the track was mostly passive, at no point did she ever go aggressive even when she needed to. With her quiet behavior however, she was pretty friendly with the current pilots of the FX400. Even being kind of shy at times, she was one of those pilots that were hard to hate. Not the most exciting pilots in the league whatsoever, only to be noticed because she was on Griffin and Mariana's squad, getting more attention while Clara was just the quiet one flying along with them.

    Clara Bellerose was just an average pilot overall from the FX400 going over to the FX500 racing league in 2215. Her medal count wasn't too impressive only earning 5 in her entire racing career. She did however win her first gold medal in 2215 during the UpLift tour in Western Europe, winning a venom class speed lap event in Talons Junction against what were rookie class opponents for the FX500. Clara never reached professional level and has only earned 3 standard sponsors from FEISAR, none were premium during her seasons. Unfortunately, somehow her motion sickness would come back again, only to retire in 2216, having only one season in the current FX500 Racing League. Still, Clara would still live on the island of Makana throughout her life, making a career instead into art and making her living doing what she did best first hand. Surprisingly her AG-inspired artwork would get more recognition from the race commission, given a job at the AG-Museum in Vineta A to paint murals for the facility and selling more of her artwork to AG-fans on the island, earning more than she did back in her home country. It seemed that all she needed was some more publicity, and Makana was just the perfect spot to find it.

    Early Life
    Born on August 25th, 2187 in Chicago Illinois, Tyrrell Byron was a man that had a love for racing. He had been racing ever since he was 9 years old, building an AG-Kart from scratch along with his father and older brother, Jackson Byron. The two brothers had a very strong bonding; they enjoyed racing and wanted to be professional pilots for the AGRL someday, hand building their kart craft to look a lot like the small variant craft of the AGRC. They took their craft to compete for the Junior Grand Prix around the city every year, winning at least a few first placed finishes with both of them tagging along in the same tournaments. As they got older however, their AG-Craft building would become more technical. Jackson would buy a genuine craft that was as big as the AGRC models from 2048, competing for a number of races in the region and becoming overall a very skilled pilot in the amateur scene as well as taking home a trophy from one of the national series tournaments. Tyrrell would look up to Jackson more than ever over his success, even telling him that he could now race professionally in the AGRL around the world to finally get sponsored or race for teams like Auricom Research Industries. It was still the goal they had when they were kids as Jackson registered for a spot in the Auricom Academy to train on a much larger/faster craft. Tyrrell would also teach himself to race Jackson's craft for a number of times and to follow on his brother's footsteps into professional racing. Despite registering for Auricom however with no responses from the company, Jackson continued to compete in amateur races. Unfortunately, tragedy would occur one day.

    Brother’s Death
    In 2206, weeks after registering, Tyrrell's brother gets killed in a race accident during a tense race event on a local track. Dealing with aggressive pilots all throughout, Jackson was suddenly rammed by another craft on a wall edge, crashing head on and igniting his craft in a fiery explosion. Unlike the actual leagues, the craft carried no shield energy, not even an EPR while Jackson was trapped in his craft as the engine ruptured. Tyrrell was horrified as he ran out on the track to save him until he realized it was too late. The fire crews had put out the flames and drag his body out, but unfortunately, he already died from his burns, being trapped inside the cockpit for too long and was cooked alive. Soon after, Tyrrell's sorrow turned to anger as he almost started a fight with the person that rammed Jackson back in the pits, accusing of killing him. The brother's father was also there as he broke up the fight and calmed down his younger son. Tyrrell couldn't believe what happened that day, becoming depressed for weeks even after his brother's funeral. However, as he got over his brother's loss eventually, Tyrrell took his place and continued on his own racing career path.

    Auricom Recognition
    In 2208, 2 years after his brother's death, Tyrrell had been making a certain amount of wins during local races in the city. He received his first sponsor in amateur racing, but that wasn't the only thing that would approach him for his progress. One day in his garage, he was approached by two people in blue while working on his own built craft. He was interrupted, and when he got up to figure out who the strangers were, he soon realized they were from Auricom Research Industries. They wanted to hire him to race for their racing team, looking over his progress in the amateur events as well as knowing his brother from his registered info. While Tyrrell also registered himself to join the company, it seemed that the company had approached him first for his promising skills over the past 2 years. The men would pay $10,000 to sign him, feeling he was worthy for the team, even though Jackson had more experience than him. Without second thought, Tyrrell signed himself to be part of the professional FX400 racing league, now racing internationally with a global team. He would travel west of the US to register for the racing team out in Nevada, taking his prior skills out on what was the test site of Belmondo's first flight in the Tule Desert. Testing the craft and getting feedback from their pilots would put the company to work on the craft's flaws during closed seasons. As such, Tyrrell would volunteer to tweak the craft himself using his knowledge. Pilots in the facility would try out his updates with their own craft until each pilot was satisfied of the handling capabilities. Before long they would master the updated 8K craft in time for the 2209 FX400 season.

    FX400 Progression
    Traveling to Makana would become an honor to him, yet he wished Jackson was still around to share the moment. Before long on his first couple of seasons, Tyrrell was already put in with the professional lineup of Auricom pilots of the FX400. While racing in Flash class speeds for awhile, he was ready to handle a Rapier class craft, setting himself for much of the faster/aggressive pilots in the tournaments around Makana and worldwide. Using weapons was new to him but had gotten use to it in combat events in the league. As he continued to win more races internationally, Auricom would suit him as a valuable pilot to the team, earning a fair amount of gold medals and tournament trophies throughout the first three years of his global racing career. He would exceed his professional rank in the league, border lining himself with the elite Auricom pilots. Their team principal, Jessie Fairbank, would soon notice Tyrrell's progress, enough for an opportunity to compete for the All-Star Championships. He raced hard and well to earn a spot for the ASC, even looking up to his deceased brother knowing he was probably smiling down at him for this accomplishment. Tyrrell would accept the opportunity, replacing Auricom’s last ASC pilot in 2211. Along with his success overall, sponsors kept coming across his path, earning him larger paychecks by the end of each season. It was more than he had ever earned when he was an Amateur race pilot. Eventually, he was eligible to lead his own squad of pilots, meeting one of his choices back in the US.

    Sister-like Teammate
    In 2212, heading back to the Auricom HQ in Nevada, Tyrrell would meet a bubbly Western American AG-Pilot, Rachel Vega, who was still a rookie pilot just a month competing for the AGRL. Rachel was once a farm girl coming from the central valley in California, who first started out as an AG-Queen model/dancer for Auricom back in 2208 until making her choice to be a pilot the following year in 2212. Tyrrell swore he had seen her before starting a race, and was surprised to see her become a pilot at the facility. Meeting for the first time, Rachel was the friendliest and cheeriest person he had ever met in years. Her joyful personality made him feel delighted, always cheering him up on any occasion and just couldn't help but smile whenever she did. Throughout the first few seasons they formed a bond both on/off the track. He took care of her in team events and just overall enjoyed her company. In some way however, Rachel was like a sister to him, filling the void of his brother by telling her his past and lost sibling. Overall, Tyrrell was happy to pick her to be his wingman, having Rachel as secondary on his squad along with a Korean pilot as a backup around the same time of 2212, Soo Min-Hye.

    Ally & Rivals / Follow-up Conclusion
    With allies, Tyrrell held an alliance with Piranha's ASC Brazilian pilot, Thiago Castillo. They were good friends outside of racing as well as their teams having an alliance in general. On the track they only teamed up when facing team rivals, giving support while still also racing each other, proving who the best was while respecting their skills by the end of an event. With rivals it's no surprise they would come from Auricom's arch rival team, Qirex-RD. Russian Qirex pilot, Vadik Sidorov, would pose more of a challenge to Tyrrell in events. Not exactly a threat to him as what Auricom would try to push upon with every Qirex pilot, but rather with Russian ASC pilot, Nadia Elenova. Only one time in the ASC did he place ahead of her taking 5th in the 2212 championship. However, Nadia would fight back during the next ASC, placing 9th ahead of Tyrrell and vice versa. With Vadik, despite his old age for a pilot, he was as menacing as Nadia including her choice to race for her in regular events, followed by former Qirex AG-Queen, Afina Rusakova. Vadik was elite, but not a veteran in the FX400 league debuting back in 2210. It was only during the start of the FX500 League in 2215 where their rivalry increased, so do high tensions between their teams/allies. Tyrrell will expect the worse coming from Nadia years ahead.

    During the fallout of the F9000 on October 2170, the global market ran into a corrupting halt. A mass global economic depression had streamed all over the world as every government tried to regain money, challenging the world's population. A recession breaks out as people began to lose jobs, homes, businesses, and agricultural supplies. Inside of modern day cities, farmlands were now in hydroponic facilities as well as stacked towers with each floor growing different crops or vegetables. Unfortunately, they were hit with agricultural recession. Shortages of crops and profit were spread on farm towers and biofarms during the 2170's. This caused low incomes and high taxes to farmers that quickly lead them to debt and losing their businesses. However, there was one family in the United States that still had a good income, and still owned a traditional farm, but was almost on the brink of bankruptcy.

    Meet the Vega Family, living out in the central valley of California USA. The family has lived in the valley ever since the 19th century, and has own a large amount of land during the many years away from the modern world. Surviving the great depression in the 1930's they were now hit again 250 years later. During the 2170's the Vega's were a large target to the world economy, and most of their land was drained because of it. It was pure luck that their land wasn't drained completely however, but unfortunately they had lost almost 90% percent of property from selling it. When it ended in 2179, they had very little land covered, and would only take a miracle just to buy back all their property and grow everything again. By the 2180's they slowly grew more, but still it would take a lot of effort, and they refused modern farming in a big city. However the Vega's were a large family up until the late 2180's where they began to have children around the property. The first born in 2187 was a boy named Andy Vega. 3 years later in 2190, a baby girl was them named Rachel Vega, second born in the family. Finally, a couple years after that, yet another baby sister would become part of the family (Lacy Vega). Out of the three children, only one had the more energetic personality. Hard working yet still kept a positive attitude, she was deemed the more disciplined and favorite child to the whole family, and that was Rachel Vega.

    Rachel was specifically born on February 26, 2190 and was the more hyper child in the family. When she was raised with the family during the 2190's they were completely unaware or just ignored what's happening around them which was the opening of the FX300 Racing League in Makana, many miles away in the pacific. Because of the loss of their crops, the children were put to work at a young age. Rachel was worked non-stop when she turned 10 in 2202 as she became the full-time labor girl in the family and was committed to do the job. Having discipline, she would not make shortcuts during her work labor nor complain, unlike her younger sister including her older brother. Even when they started turning down on their jobs, Rachel was always there to boost them up with her positive personality, sometimes giving them a smile and the motivation to finish up for the day. Still, even she would have her tiring moments; not even her own motivations could keep her going at times. It didn't help much that the family was kind of living in the past. They didn't use much technology and were against anything that was Anti-Gravity due to its caused of the depression. As such, the children did not know such a thing existed.

    As Rachel got older, now going into her teens, her thoughts started to change. She was always very curious of what was outside of her home, going out in the fields by herself at dawn just to think. As a hard-working girl, she didn't had time to be with friends in the area, other than her family and siblings. She wanted to explore away from her home just to meet new people and to be involved with something that would amuse her other than just work. At some time in 2208 however, something would catch her eye on the current animated newspaper that her father just threw away. Looking at it, she spots something amazing; on the headline showed an animated picture of Anti-Gravity racing and Anti-Gravity Queen performing. Rachel had never seen anything like it before, almost thinking she had been living under a rock all her life. The technology amazed her, but what really caught her eye were the AG-Queen performances that remind her of cheerleading at her local highschool. She thought it was something that she could get into, requiring her to travel to the home nation of AG-Racing. Immediately she told her parents in an excited tone about the article. "Mom, Dad, I want to go to this thing at this city! Please can I go?" Her parents looked at her like she was crazy, even her father wondered where she found the newspaper in the first place. They disagreed on Rachel's suggestion, thinking it was too expensive, and even dangerous to be a pilot for this event. Even it was just for being an AG-Queen, her parents still said no, instead her father told her to do more work outside, saying he'll think about it later, excusing for saying no. Rachel got upset for once, forgetting about what she saw and threw the paper in the trash again to continue working out in the field. As her parents looked back however, they actually started to feel bad for her, even seeing her really upset for the first time. Doing so much hard work on the property and not complaining about it, they thought she deserved something rewarding in return like what she showed to them. Meanwhile, Rachel realized how poor her family was. Since the depression, almost all of their money/land was taken away from them. To make matters worse, they were now in a lot of debt. They don't even have enough to take care of themselves anymore as Rachel wanted to find a solution fast, before something very bad could happen to her family and farm.

    Rachel seemed to have found something that will help her and her family for the time, but some risks had to be made. In a shed just outside of Rachel's house, there was a century year old tractor, still in great shape and would be very valuable by its age and good performance. Unfortunately, the family almost seemed to have a history with it, keeping it for generations and it was the only working tractor on their farm. If they were to sell their machine as a collector's item, they would have supplies for quite a while and pay for the large debt, but mostly for Rachel to travel across the ocean to receive an admission of becoming an AG-Queen. She promised that if she could somehow earn a career in the Racing committee, she could help her family save their land, and to pay back what was left of selling their only tractor, only to replace it. Without it, they won't be able to grow anything and will lose their farmland either way; she was almost on a mission. Rachel's father sells the tractor at an auction days after but was not too happy about selling a family relic, yet he trusted his daughter and hoped she'll find a new one. The tractor sold for a great price than expected, enough for food and other things for the family for a few years and to pay for the massive debt, including Rachel to leave out of the country on her own. The family may have had a lot of money for now, but the farm was still at stake. A hover bus would come all the way to transport her to an airport miles outside the ruins of Los Angeles, strucked by a great earthquake in the 2030s (Unofficial date) and was once home of an F5000 AG-track, Spilskinanke.

    Rachel boards on a Blimp Transportations Airship when she came to the west coast. While aboard traveling to the Makana Islands, Rachel got very amused on what was on the ship even before coming to a big city. However, she didn't want to spend too much money for entertainment on the ship and saved it once she got there. In 12 hours, she finally landed on one of the island's cities, Vineta A (Modesto Heights). Rachel was stunned, being surrounded by a modern urban environment for the very first time. Though now in a public area, she stuck out like a sore thumb, soon paying a visit to a 2ND SKIN clothing store and blended herself in with the city. Her second destination was at the Anti-Gravity Museum, taking a flying cab to the facility. While entering the facility, Rachel was surrounded by the sport's history with certain race craft and technology, capturing her interest. She waited in line to the front desk; while it was her turn she finally fills out her admission to become an AG-Queen. She was accepted, and right away was given an outfit of her chosen team "Auricom Research Industries".

    After receiving her outfit, and being distracted, she accidently bumps into another signed in AG-Queen. Rachel quickly apologizes, but after seeing who it was, she easily recognized her as Mariana Sinclair, first seeing her on the newspaper back home. Rachel greeted herself to her while Mariana did the same. Mariana knew she wasn't from around her home island and was foreign, much like her old friend, Sofia Rossetti from AG-Systems. At the time, Mariana seemed to want another best friend after Sofia left being an AG-Queen. She welcomed Rachel to the island, showing her around the museum of every history from the dawn of the sport, to the fall of the F9000, showing the real reason why Rachel's family had lost most of their property during the 2170's.

    While continuing to talk to each other, they soon got to know each other, knowing they were from two different worlds. Rachel soon knew that Mariana was very wealthy and how she founded the trend and fashion of the AG-Queen. She realized why she was also here in Makana, to help pay back for her family's debts, however she didn't want to tell Mariana to lend money to her and stuck with her responsibilities to not take shortcuts and earn it herself. To Mariana, Rachel had a sense of humor to her, telling certain jokes as well as showing her energetic personality. Overall, Mariana started to like her, even telling her own interests to her and vice versa. The relationship continued on between the two, and when it came to the re-opening season of the FX350/400 in Las Vegas, Nevada, (The Amphisium) they soon became best friends. They became the next AG-Queen duo of 2209 to 2210, much like Mariana and Sofia from 2207 to 2208, performing duets during race events of the current year. For Rachel she became more noticed while hanging out with Mariana. She was taught by her on certain dance moves and was trained to be a Superstar AG-Queen. Rachel's appearance also changed using her long hair to create long pigtails under her ears and actually loved the new hairstyle, fitting her cheerful personality. What she didn't know was that she almost looks like a familiar icon. To the team Auricom, she was the best they ever had; she had dedication to the team and kept it, continuing in 2209. When the AG-Queen leaderboard was introduced in 2208, Rachel was part of the top ten on the Island, and was ranked #1 favorite in the U.S. She was given a lot of sponsors as an AG-Queen, and grabbed lots of attention from AG-Fans, becoming the most adored/lovable AG-Queen in the industry.

    Rachel's life had started to change; getting use to living in an urban environment and away from the farm life she once had, she was turning into a city girl herself. Rightfully so, she had almost forgot about her family, and still needed to earn money for them. However, she seemed to have earned not as much of what she had expected and still needed around $900,000 more to replace the family's old tractor. During the closing season of the AGRL, Rachel went back home to North America, but was still very short on paying her family back. While entering the family's property, her parents and siblings were very happy to see her. They've been also hearing about Rachel's first year as an AG-Queen all this time, and surprisingly were earning a decent amount of income as well.

    Coming inside her house, she noticed a modern 16K clear screen T.V. in the living room which surprised her even more coming from her family, always using an old 21st century HD flat screen. Suddenly she heard a strange noise outside and saw a working engineering machine out in the fields. They were two Deuterium powered A.I. Machines created by the company of Aicom Industries (aimi) which was a sponsor given to her. She had been eyeing the machine when the sponsor was given to her, but was extremely expensive than what she was earning. Now all of a sudden there were now two of them working on her family's farm, working much faster than the old tractor and were operated by themselves. This confused Rachel even more, until she realized why she was probably earning so little. Half of it went to her family, signing the sponsor during her past year. While filling in her application back at the AG-Museum, some information also included her home address, and for optional, being able to write a summary of where she came from as she wrote down her personal struggle. When she was sponsored by Aicom, and for all the fame she progressed in her first year, the company read her summary, and was happy to give away their most advanced machines to the struggling family. In some sense she started to thank Mariana for giving her attention, making a jumpstart as a Star AG-Queen and was only the beginning of it. If she haven't bumped into her back at the Museum, this stuff wouldn't have came much sooner. Overall, she was glad that the problems had mostly gone away but was happy just to be back home from a long tour.

    About a month later, Rachel says goodbye to her family once again going back to Makana for the next season. As the season opened again, newer young AG-Queens began to show up, one of which was Loraine Johnson from Great Britain. During the final months of 2210, Rachel noticed Mariana being more stubborn and resentful to the other Queens. After Mariana met Loraine on her team, FEISAR, she had been having issues and conflicts with Loraine that her only focus was to be better than her in every way. Rachel couldn't recognize her best friend anymore. She tried to convince Mariana about the AG-Queen leaderboard when Mariana's #1 rank was knocked off by Loraine in 2211, that it was just one drop from her rank and to just be proud of Loraine's achievement. But Mariana couldn't agree, walking away from her as they both saw the updated leaderboard the day before. Rachel had no Idea what she did after.

    During an argument between Rachel and Mariana, few days after Mariana's argument with Loraine and forcing her to leave, Mariana tried to reason out Rachel with her spoiled arrogance. But Rachel became serious, putting her bubbly traits aside while talking to her.

    Mariana: "I've been on top since before you became an AG-Queen. I brought the sport back on its feet which makes me the better Queen than everyone."
    Rachel responded: "Even me? Do you realize what you’re saying right now?"
    Mariana answers: "You? You're my best friend, Rachel, I helped you became an AG-Queen, right?"
    Rachel: "I don't see why not helping your teammate makes it different. Why are you making a big fuss about her becoming more famous than you?"
    Mariana: "Because I have more talent than her, I'm a better pilot than her, I deserve the most attention."
    Rachel responded: "So you're jealous of her then."
    Mariana was shocked to hear that word: "I'm not jealous, what makes you think I'm Jealous?"
    Rachel: "Why wouldn't you be? You've been acting strange since she came along, you've ignored me most of the time, and now you forced her to leave your team since she had an excellent skill on your race team and is probably just as good as you performing. New people will come by all the time but nobody will forget about you.”
    Mariana: “I don’t want people to forget about me.”
    Rachel: “Then share it with her like you do with me.”
    Mariana: “Please. I will never work with that skank.”
    Rachel: “How come? What’s the difference between me, your old best friend, (Sofia) over her? Now I don’t know if she was ever mean to you, but I highly doubt that.”
    Mariana: “She’s mediocre, she’s overrated, alright. You’re not like that, neither was Sofia.”
    Rachel: “Is it because we never surpassed you on the Queen leaderboard?”
    Mariana: “What?”
    Rachel: “I’m only suggesting it, cause I’ve never seen you act like this before. How would you feel if I became the #1 AG-Queen worldwide right now? Would you be calling me overrated or a ‘skank’ also?”
    Mariana: “Don’t be ridiculous, I would never say that about you.”
    Rachel: “Then you wouldn’t care if this other AG-Queen passed you then. You said you’re better than everyone? That kind of worries me. If you’re my best friend and I pass you up, you would support me for it, anyone who does. It’s us as AG-Queen’s to entertain everyone, we support each other, you said so yourself. Otherwise I’m gonna believe that you were being hypocritical after what I heard from you. (Mariana looks down turning her head away) So what’s more important for the AG-Industry then? Yourself or everyone involved?”
    Mariana silently answers: “…Me.”
    Rachel: “What was that?"
    Mariana: “I’m more important.”
    Rachel was surprised: “..Really? Not even for me, your popularity is more important? Than her (Loraine), anyone? Are you that self-centered?”
    Mariana: "...Rachel I'm Sorry, that’s not what I..."
    Rachel interrupted: "No, don't say sorry to me, say sorry to your teammate first. She’s gone because you had to be selfish. If this is how you really are, then I shouldn’t be your friend anymore. Obviously I’m not important to you. Just.. don't even talk to me right now."
    Mariana whispers to herself as Rachel turned and left: "I already did."

    Rachel walked away from Mariana as she looked back feeling guilty, even thinking about the horrible thing she did to Loraine weeks ago. However, Mariana still couldn't stand her. Even now, Mariana was piloting an AG-race craft at age 17, racing in the junior division at a very slow speed class and pilot assist. She still thought she was a more experience pilot because of her father, Marcus Sinclair, and for everything else she just got spoiled by.

    While months had past, and Loraine quitting out of FEISAR to join with Harimau, Rachel was still best friends and allied to Mariana, trying to forgive her. Unfortunately, Mariana still had a grudge towards Loraine and still focused on going after her, ignoring Rachel overall. In late 2211, Rachel was 21yrs old, she was already having an interest of becoming an AG-Pilot for Auricom for some time and thought she could bring more loyalty for her team to volunteer in the professional Racing League. Unfortunately for her parents, they didn't want her to compete in the AGRL for her own safety. AG-Racing was a dangerous sport, adding to it with the use of weapons. Rachel tried to talk it out with her parents; for all her family knew, she would become the very first in the family to ever race in the AG-Racing league as Rachel wanted to expand herself to a racing career. Her parents didn't want to keep her from doing what she wanted to do, so they let her compete in the current FX400 league, filling anxious about what will happen to their loving daughter. All Rachel could say to them was: "I'll be okay. Nothing bad will happen to me. I'll be safe."

    Like every newcomer pilot, Rachel started her training at the Auricom Academy, testing her piloting skills near the Belmondo Test Site in the Tule Desert of Nevada. She was accepted and went through basic training on the team's ACM-8K model craft. While only racing with other Auricom pilots in the facility and the Amphiseum for local amateur tournaments, Rachel started out on Venom class and slowly raised her skills on her own by the end of the season. She continued to take part around the Auricom facility, eventually meeting someone that would help her to reach professional level before the next season. Coming from the U.S. as well, Tyrrell Byron was one of Auricom's best pilots and current ASC contender. If there's anyone that could fully train a beginner pilot for the professional league, it was up to him to show them the ropes. Rachel would show her enthusiasm to her future lead pilot, winning him over with her bubbly charms, forming a brother/sister-like relationship by the starting 2212 season. Tyrrell would gladly choose her for secondary, followed by Korean pilot, Soo Min-Hye as backup. Rachel's debut in the league would also surprise most of her AG-Queen fans, becoming yet another performer to race on behalf of her team and expanding her reputation.

    Rachel's first season goes off on a good start, flying back to Makana where her race career officially started. While her skills were still shaky by Auricom's standards, her confidence however was highly respected. So much so she would get the attention of another highly respected pilot from the home team. Goteki 45 pilot, Noelani Kekumu was an expert on the sport's history, as well as studying AG-pilots from the past/present of their techniques in racing to teach to new pilots trying to get into professional racing. She admired Rachel's determination against harsher pilots in races looking from the sidelines, only to meet with her back at a hanger bay in Vineta K. She knew Rachel had the confidence, but saw her struggling at the same time. Seeing she was a newcomer with decent skills already, Noelani offered her an invite for private sessions at the Makanian AG-Academy, being an instructor there on closed seasons only to sometimes offer lessons to new pilots around the island. Rachel would agree on free times during the season to come to the facility, able to bring her craft for use with Noelani's Krakatau racecraft on the facility's test track despite Auricom still having distrust of the team at the time. There were only a number of times in the season when the two could meet for private lessons. Overtime the two would grow a teacher/student relationship; Noelani always enjoyed her company becoming her most favorite student outside of Goteki 45. Rachel would slowly get better in events using the techniques given to her until reaching sub professional rank in the league as well as a first pilot sponsor. For the first time on her first season she would also earn a gold medal by herself at a Head Rush series event east of Makana. With an accomplishment like this it was clear she would continue this as a full-time career. However, AG-Queen performing was still a thing she enjoyed, coming back part time only to please her fan base and enjoying herself overall. Still, moving on to racing and a different season meant coming across highly skilled pilots that competed for number of years. Sure enough, one pilot would pose an intimidating match during her course of the 2214 season, and with no surprise it was a pilot from Qirex-RD.

    During a qualifier in Sinucit, Vineta A, Rachel came across a harassing Qirex pilot in a white craft going around the track. Not knowing who he/she was, the pilot manages to push her for a race. Unfortunately, the Qirex pilot was on a Rapier speed class while Rachel was on flash. However, she wanted to race the pilot anyway, only to get knocked out around a corner frustratingly trying to make a pass but making a mistake. As the pilot zoomed off, Rachel wanted to know who it was that ruined her run and finds the pilot back at the hanger. The pilot would reveal herself as a female, having a striking alluring beauty taking off her helmet. A former AG-Queen, she was Russian Qirex pilot, Afina Rusakova. Backed up by two other male pilots, Afina approached Rachel, being upset over their encounter on the track. Afina would bully her and talk trash about her team, only to back her off using her group. Despite her 5'3" short height, Rachel was intimidated by her, being sent back to her team's side of the hanger and forgets about going up to the Qirex pilot. She never saw Afina again up until the end of the season. Competing for a tournament months later it was revealed that she was put up with that pilot once again. Looking at her history with Tyrrell, she was a very skilled and sub elite pilot with a lot of top 3 placed finishes. Remembering how she raced her back at Sinucit, Afina was an unpredictable pilot, even witnessing her races on projected videos did she saw her race tactics/maneuvers in weapon enabled events. Rachel actually felt scared to race her, breaking confidence and that Afina may possibly remember her, only to become a target especially from Qirex. The pilot never lost a race to Auricom, but Tyrrell thought Rachel could handle her, at least survive the tournament with her making the top 3. Rachel didn't want to back down and decided to keep her entrance. If he thought she could take her based on her experience so far, Rachel would believe it, doing it for him and the team in general. She starts her first round a few days later at Anulpha Pass, Vineta A.

    It was a 5 race Delta Tournament taking place mostly at the Vineta A Entertainment Arena, starting from Anulpha and other 3 tracks in the arena, while ending outside at Modesto Heights. Rachel was anxious but still kept her confidence she had throughout her racing career. While positioned at the starting line with other competing pilots, she saw the white Qirex LS model craft again in front of her. Meanwhile Afina notices Rachel positioned behind her but didn't seem to care, only to underestimate her and thought she could beat her again at the same speed class. She was the most favored in this tournament and expected to win, but Rachel was seeking for an upset knowing her fans were watching. Tyrrell would watch her on screen back at the team hanger, hoping she could at least stay in the race without elimination by her new rival. Eventually an AG-Queen walks out on the track to start the race, ironically starting for two others on the grid. The wands and banner signal the pilots to go and the race was finally on, going around 10 laps.

    Throughout the first few laps, Rachel kept her position trailing Afina on third. Right away with weapons enabled, the Qirex pilot hunts for the 2 pilots up front. Rachel would witness the pilots get knocked around by her and get pushed back almost colliding with Rachel by swerving out of the way. She kept her pace while using turbo pickups to catch up including using some weapons, only to be outsmarted with shields or split maneuvers. Afina played with her up until the final lap as Rachel catches up almost neck and neck. With no useful weapons to slow her down she stayed close with Afina yet scared of what she'll pull off. As they reach the Greenline Split, Rachel manages to stay right and takes the skillcut across, forcing Afina to take downward. She thought she easily would win the first event taking the speed pads across and back down on the main track ahead of Afina, only that was her trick. Managing to keep pace, Afina slightly had a lead up front but had kept something at hand. Knowing exactly where Rachel will land she plants one single bomb right as the Auricom pilot landed, dazing and slowing her down as Afina speeded through the finish taking 1st. Unable to speed up sliding near the track wall, few other pilots managed to speed pass Rachel, bringing her down to 4th position on the first race. Afina outsmarted her adding insult to injury with a well-placed mine and pushing her back a few positions. She proved her unpredictability on the first race showing the Auricom pilot who not to mess with in the next 4 races. With that shown, Rachel must keep her attention up, being told by Tyrrell back at a hotel room in the arena. She knew that she couldn't give up on the next race over that move. She needed to be more tactical on her pickups and study the Qirex pilot's moves on the replay. If she wanted to beat Afina, she needed to predict her moves if not race like her by counteracting, given a day and a half before the next race.

    Like so, contenders had time for practice runs on the next track before given a few hours to line up on the start. Since weapons were enabled, pilots would use holograms or drones to practice combat tactics setting difficulties on each drone from passive to aggressive or smart to dumb AI. Rachel took advantaged using one drone on the track, setting it to Afina's difficulty or at least close to it. While drones weren't accurate at most, Auricom would witness Qirex's practice runs to study their tactics overall, yet that didn't mean the team wouldn't do the same thing to them. At some point the pilots would bring their craft back to the hanger bay to prepare for the next race taking place on the Iridia AG-track. Throughout the second race, Rachel would get lucky with Afina getting knocked behind her by the other teams but only placing 3rd. Third race (Koltiwa), Afina would fight back against her opponents taking 1st once again while Rachel still manages to keep up and outsmarting some of her tactics taking 2nd. Both stay on the top 3 on the leader board so far, moving on to the fourth race (Khara Descent). By now, Rachel seemed to have gotten Afina's tactics down based upon practice runs and spectating. Tyrrell would be the one to point them out for her as well as her to remember what Noelani taught her back at the academy test track. She was getting better by the day but only enough to balance her skills of her arch rival. During the fourth race, Afina would almost struggle to react with the Auricom pilot. Rachel took advantage of the track splits to pull off some barrel-rolls and or courageously activate a turbo, keeping her speed up. Afina would make the mistake to underestimate her as Rachel kept a good lead of the race, taking 1st for once. By now the gloves were off from both of them. They would give all their best on the final race of the tournament taking place at Modesto Heist, the most technical track so far.

    Rachel and Afina would become the highlight of the final race in the tournament. Modesto Heights was challenging, even for the best pilots of the league leaving only the most determined pilot to make it through. Once again each pilot got a practice run on the track until the race started in the late afternoon. Rachel had raced on this track a number of times before as well as Afina. Auricom had a slight lead on the leaderboard while Qirex trailed a few points behind, able to steal gold if Afina takes 1st on this last race. On the start of go, the pilots zoom out on the final ten laps. Auricom and Qirex kept a lead pushing back the other teams leaving it with a head to head duel between the two leading the rest. Both Rachel and Afina battle it out up front firing and reflecting every weapon activated going through every pad. Through every lap they manage to hit one another while still keeping up, passing each other and vice versa. Both teams were not giving up or making a slight mistake. It was the final lap at this point with Afina leading Rachel by a few meters. It was anyone's race at this point.

    While pulling off so many barrel-rolls they were almost close to getting their craft destroyed by a single weapon shot. Not thinking about absorbing a pickup, Afina was desperate to eliminate Rachel from the race trying to pick up a defensive weapon. Going down Adams' Dive through the Aicom plant, Afina lays a set of mines through the hairpin turn while Rachel used her equipped shield kept from the last lap while also picking up a missile, firing it without a lock on. The missile bounces off the corners and hits Afina, slowing her down and with critical shield energy. Rachel catches up with her heading through the Scleradome Research Hub exit tunnel. Afina was sweating at this point with the alarm blaring on her cockpit, scattering for speed pads and finding another useful weapon pickup. As for Rachel she went pass another pad acquiring a plasma bolt which was a one-shot elimination. Unfortunately she couldn't get a straight shot going round the Lucas Skyway. At this point, Afina acquired a bomb, waiting to lay it heading up the Sigam Span jump. With no time to lose just meters away from the finish, Rachel charges her weapon going up the jump, only to see a bomb coming up her flight path. Thinking fast she made a tight yaw turn just barely setting off the proximity of the bomb while still charging her plasma. On a spit second she pitches her craft down firing her plasma on the track as it quickly floats down the track. Afina was about to make a final turn to the finish when all of sudden she saw a purple glow coming towards her and explodes in a ball of glowing light. Her EPR eject automatically teleports her instantly out of danger while her ship gets obliterated on the track. Rachel avoids the wreckage and heads straight for a roaring finish. She wins another gold for the 2214 Delta tournament, making a victory lap around the track for the cheering fans.

    Back in the hanger bay, Auricom crews gather together for Rachel climbing out of the cockpit to celebrate her win. Tyrrell was in the crowd as she moves out of the way to give him a celebrating hug, getting lifted up. While the real reward was yet to come, Rachel heads to the podium standing on the middle column along with a Goteki and an Icaras pilot, waiting for their medals. During it all, Afina was nowhere in sight though was safely back in the hanger bay along with her destroyed craft. She would have a grudge on Rachel for the coming years, but not just for losing the race from her. Rachel was the first ever pilot to eliminate Afina in her entire race career as well as fighting her back. It was not just a win for her but a win for Auricom. Afina was one of Qirex's best pilots with Auricom unable to beat her in any events through her years competing. Eliminating her from an event however only made it sweeter for the team. Because of this, Rachel was promoted to a higher professional rank. Her skills were able to counter a Qirex pilot overall and was what the team needed, knowing she had full confidence and determination to stand up to an unbeatable contender for the first time. Throughout the rest of the final seasons of the FX400 league, Rachel would set a goal for herself to become an elite pilot in regards of Auricom Reaserch.

    As a result now test piloting the company's new model craft, the ACM-9K0, Rachel was now competing in more Rapier and phantom class tournaments, racing with her chosen elite pilots including her teammate, Tyrrell Byron in the FX500 season of 2215. Continuing to follow Noelani's race techniques, Rachel was breaking speed records during the course of the U.S. Tournament in the current season. She would hold the fastest speed lap record on the track of Tech Da Ra in Arizona, beating her own team pilot's record lap time, Tara Shannon, by less than a second. It was a lucky lap time that no other pilot or even she could possibly break again. Tara herself would also congratulate her on the lap record, knowing the new craft and the pilot was able to surpass it at some point in time, still held by Auricom overall.

    Rachel Vega who was once a central valley farm girl turned into a star AG-Queen, has now turned into an Elite AG-pilot of Auricom. While she wasn't the only pilot that started out as a performer, she was most recognized and loved from most AG-Queen and race fans. With so much attention for her physical appearance however, this was probably because she bared somewhat a resemblance to AG-Legend/Icon, Arial Tetsuo, from the F3600 era. She was considered America's Arial T. from her young fans as another cute pigtailed elite Auricom pilot for the current generation. She accepted the legacy despite not being Japanese or has her pigtails above her ears, yet her fans wanted to give her the title anyway. Overall in 2217, Rachel continues to succeed along with her teammate, Tyrrell, in the current FX500 league. She has earned less than 15 medals and counting (6G/4S/5B) and was the people's pilot for obvious reasons. However with all this popularity she was a big target from Qirex-RD, especially during a time of war between the two teams and their allies. Afina was still her arch rival from the team overall, getting into more events along with her by getting herself and Tyrrell involved in the AG-Race war. While she does gain new allies from other teams, she'll unfortunately lose one of her old ones. FEISAR Pilot, Mariana Sinclair would stop becoming not just an ally but also a best friend to her since 2216, making it permanent after Mariana's AG-Queen/pilot scandal with AG-Queen pilots, Loraine Johnson of Harimau, and Sofia Rossetti of AG-Sys. The 3 would oppose her in future races due to her narcissism, but overall respected and admire their talents on the track or on stage. Rachel will continue to please fans throughout the racing league. As for her family, they were back home growing everything again and making large profits. If she hadn't found that paper in the trash, her family wouldn't even have their farm till this day. They were still very proud and thank her whenever she came back home after some seasons, even her siblings will continue to look up to her.

    Born on July 6th, 2164 in Moscow Russia, Vadik Sidorov had been around during the mid-years of the F9000 league. His Family had struggled during the years of the 2nd Great Depression during the 2170's including dealing with the crime syndicates that took over the country beforehand. But aside from the recession across Russia and around the world, his family survived the decade. As a child he always dreamed of going to space, and had studied on science, math and astronomics during his time in school. During his 20s after graduating from a university, he enrolled in his dream career into the Russian Space Administration, merged with Qirex Research Development. Vadik had training with Qirex long before becoming an official pilot in 2210, but at the time, he was mostly involved with the RFSA, spending at least two years of cosmonaut training. He began learning on how to control an aircraft as part of his requirements, including an AG-Craft for surface missions on Terrestrial planets. By 2189, he was officially chosen for the program, going up in a space elevator located in the Baltic Sea. There he met his new assigned crew heading up to the atmosphere all together. It was up there where they took off on a medium space hauler. Their destination was anywhere they were needed in the solar system.

    For almost twenty years, Vadik had served his time up in space, traveling mostly to moons and back transporting supplies with his 2 crews. Moons like Europa, Titan, etc. were destinations called for, transporting minerals to/from local stations or even back to Earth including to the planet Mars. Mars had been under terraformation during the last century as an atmosphere had already started to form on the red planet, yet still wasn't breathable at its current stage. It was also home to a famous AG-Circuit not raced on since the era of the F3600 league, and was very rarely been raced on due to the long distance from earth at the time. The track, "Firestar" till this day is still being raced on by the inhabitants from Earth during their preparation of terraforming the planet just for entertainment. Though still on mission duty, Vadik had a chance to take flight on the track for the first time using the hauler's exo-craft. He didn't go exactly for racing, but still trained himself for low piloting AG-Craft on the surface. However, this became such a thrill to him that it became his own side career throughout his time living on the planet, but at last, he was back on a spacecraft back to the Earth's moon, and will be the last time on the track and on the planet.

    On the moon, Vadik had made a job there, exporting and importing minerals around the crater moon base, Katmoda 12, and of course, an AG-Circuit was built around it. Still around since the F9000 league, it was also still in use by inhabitants on the lunar surface for entertaining purposes once again. The repetitiveness going back and forth around the crater would have Vadik and his crew take their amusement on the home track using their exo-craft once again, and has gained him more experience whenever going down there. He soon began forming private races with lunar pilots showing full potential in AG-racing than anything else. Soon locals discovered his true piloting skills, immediately gaining fame only on the moon as he continued to progress, sometimes abandoning his transporting job just to race. While his career started to take another turn for what he originally signed himself in, both he and his crew were strictly brought back on duty. In 2209 however, he was dismissed from the moon and sentenced back to Earth.

    Coming back to Earth felt strange to him being away from the planet for more than 20 years. It was like a new world all over again seeing oceans and yellowish green land, coming back to the atmospheric space station floating above Eastern Europe. With his crew of pilots taking a space elevator back down to Earth and back on the Russian mainland, they were greeted by the men back from the RFSA facility, showing a welcome back home after a faraway journey. However, for Vadik, he had received a private call coming from the Qirex Research Development facility back home in Moscow, saying the director of the facility would like to speak to him for another opportunity. Vadik agreed to take the call.

    Vadik soon talked and met with the director of the company, Feliks Levovitch, for an opportunity to become a race pilot for Qirex in the current FX400 league. Feliks heard about his reputation coming from the moon, which gave an impression to the entire team that he would be a perfect candidate to compete professionally. Despite Vadik's age of 45, he was never too old to pilot a craft that was meant to race on a close course, given his experience from tracks on the moon and Mars. However, despite already having experience with an AG-craft, he still took training in the facility while also getting use to the gravity on Earth again. Just months in training, he officially competes in 2210.

    Racing solo in most Tournaments in the league, he performed amazingly well, scoring most first place finishes racing with Qirex. Vadik earned many sponsors in his new career that his experience had gotten the attention of the team's most elite pilot, Nadia Elenova. Nadia had been the team's only wildcard for every race since 2207, until controversy between her, Auricom and the Belmondo Foundation led to her being restricted from most AG-Tournaments due to her aggressive and dangerous nature to the other team's pilots on the track. Still she was eligible to compete for the All-Star Championships every ending season. This had her on the search for finding other experience pilots to join with a squad and to replace her in restricted events. As such, Vadik was the first to race for her, followed by Afina Rusakova in 2212.

    Vadik had become Afina's lead pilot during competition in the following year of 2212. While he never competed during past leagues in the AGRL, he was considered a veteran of AG-piloting, grouped along with other veteran pilots, Katsu Sasaki, Xavior Chaffin, etc. both who had competed in the FX300 league in the 2190's. Vadik won many podium spots since his entry to the team, and has even won tournaments that Nadia had been banned from, including Afina. However, many great pilots would encounter matching one another as Vadik was matched with young Auricom pilot, Tyrrell Byron, hailing from the United States of America. Underestimating him at first, Tyrrell did not back down to the old pilot. In races he became a block in Vadik's win streak, getting a higher place finish on the podium while sometimes knocking him out of the top 3 in tournaments. Auricom was fighting back at least in regular events of the FX400 league. At some point in 2214, Afina would also have the same problem with Tyrrell's secondary pilot, Rachel Vega. Rachel would defeat her by elimination during the Delta tournament almost at the end of the season, making it her first lost/elimination from Auricom in general. The two along with other top Auricom pilots had started to slow down Qirex's domination in the past couple of seasons. At this point they became desperate, and Levovitch didn't seem to do much for the racing team until Nadia became in charge of picking the team's pilots, making her an apprentice. With this, tensions would soon rise after 2214 between the two teams.

    The company would eventually get a new co-principal close to the end of 2214. Vadik had been in most meetings with Qirex back at HQ in Moscow, and would witness the new change of the director seat. However, Levovitch still had control of the company, but it was the race team that was given a new director. Nadia Elenova would take the new position, controlling what goes on for the team in the racing league. This would make Auricom nervous, and so it did when Nadia had announced to put pressure on them in the new FX500 league. With the new season coming on the horizon, Qirex would also reveal their newest model craft to the public, the LT-01. Vadik became a test pilot for the new craft during preseason testing, coming out with outstanding results that were hoped to challenge Auricom's new craft by the time of the new season. During the start of the season, it was clear that Qirex were slightly a step ahead of them. Mainly this was due to their new crafts strength against Auricom's new ACM-9K craft as they held more upgrades with their craft's speed, thrust, and handling, including a larger weapon cashier. Auricom however, still lacked handling and weapon load outs, but that didn't concern their pilots going against their team's arch rivals. Ultimately, both teams had become more aggressive with each following day by 2215. Vadik didn't know what was going on behind the scenes, but somehow Nadia convinced their allied teams to form a conglomerate, threatening the teams supporting the Belmondo Foundation for an all-out war for the race commission. The two sides would eventually declare war in the league after a large fire burnt down an Auricom factory in Makana. Qirex allegedly took responsibility as the two sides swore to eliminate one another from the league entirely. Race craft from both teams were getting destroyed during competition more than ever, including a controversial return of Eliminator events in the FX500 league. Vadik would lose his craft a number of times during competitions, but was immediately given a new craft to stay on track, but team orders demanded him not to fail or lose another craft again, otherwise he'll be losing his spot on the team, resulting him to continue destroying the other team's craft if given the chance. As for his teammate, Afina had mixed feelings of Qirex's demands, questioning Nadia's changes only to be led out of her office when asked such a thing.

    Vadik Sidorov would also not like the idea to fully attack the teams in races, yet still followed orders from Nadia to continue eliminating Auricom's AG-craft until furthermore with no choice. Going along like the rest of the team's pilots, they set out to weaken Auricom as much as possible. In doing so shall be handsomely rewarded, more than what Vadik had earned during his career up in space. It was an incredible payout, but morally it felt wrong to him, yet other pilots on his team thought otherwise. In the current year of 2217, Vadik would continue racing overall. Despite being 53, he was still a challenge to younger pilots competing with no sign of retiring. He has earned less than 30 medals and counting (12G/9S/6B). With the AG-Race war still continuing on, teams like AG-Systems and surprisingly Goteki 45 would try to put up a fight with Qirex while their rivals also came after them. Vadik continues despite his negative thoughts on the team's decisions. Things were getting too violent, and race pilots were putting themselves more in danger than ever before.

    Unfortunately a year later, Qirex will have to face their past demons in the form of Tigron Enterprises returning in the FX500 AGRL.

    Afina Rusakova was born from a town outside of Irkutsk, Russia on May 18th, 2184. Her father was an opportunist Engineer from Russian controlled Ukraine, seeking work at Qirex's old headquarters all the way in Irkutsk alongside with the re-founder and director himself Feliks Levovitch in 2172. The company was cleared out from its burning remains during its abandoning after Tigron Enterprises was set in flames in 2171 during the fall of the F9000 League. Afina's mother was left in the old town only to give birth to her before they headed into the main city to be close to her father. While growing up, she had lived in bit of a harsh life by her strict father, and was constantly being demanded by his rules feeling a bit ungrateful to her. She also didn't like much of the cold weather during winters where she lived, but her striking beauty mixed with the icy wonderland of snow complemented her pale cold skin, frozen gem-like turquoise eyes and wavy brown hair like an ice princess in all of Russia. Overall, she toughened herself up and dealt with the difficulties in her childhood all the way to her mid teens, mentally and physically.

    Aside from her father working for Qirex, Afina was usually interested in gymnastics when she turned 16 in 2200. She was well fit, agile and flexible that she won the RUS Amateur Gymnastics Championship in 2202, even wearing the colors of the Qirex (Purple/Magenta). Though focusing on her usual interest, she was very well aware of the FX300 Racing League. Her father had helped built a Qirex craft during the opening in 2195 and has established a very well lineup of test pilots to race the team's new machine in 2197. In 2203, Qirex was currently in the works of another AG-Race craft for the upcoming FX350 League, the LS-01. Afina had first saw the new ship on that same year during a private visit to the factory with her father, including meeting Levovitch first hand. She had never seen anything that big up close before; the ship had really got her attention that it almost looked beautiful to her. Qirex had remodeled the craft from its F7200 predecessor, the LH-03, having it to be better balanced, stronger, and thinner, yet still very heavy as usual less than Triakis' Anne II craft. Afina would take the color scheme for her gymnast outfit to wear for the championships, already proven to be loyal to the team.

    Unfortunately, by 2204, Afina gave up gymnastics due to not making the Summer Olympics from qualification. After training all year, the opportunity was taken away from her, losing hopes to compete with the elite gymnastics teams in search for another interest. She headed to Makana for opportunities, coming across AG-Queen admissions for the AGRL. AG-Queen dancing was influenced by rhythmic/floor gymnastics, so it felt close to home for her as well as cheering on her home team of Qirex. In 2205, Afina officially became one for Qirex, now officially wearing the team's colors. Her talents became very useful during performances, performing with other peer Queens within her 20yr old range. But different than the other queens who were mostly teenagers at the time, Afina had a more seductive/alluring approach to AG-Fans, popping eyes out while modeling her fit body and features rather than doing flips. With this, many sponsors were given to her during the following years as an AG-Queen. Comparing to young Mariana who had a mainstream fan base of younger fans who loved her for her dancing talents, Afina had a more adult fan base, basically loving her for her sex appeal rather than dancing talents. So much so in fact, that she ended up doing a nude photo shoot for a men's magazine company with one of Qirex's AG-craft. Though that didn't mean she couldn't dance. After all, she was once a rhythmic gymnast. On stage she was a more "jump happy" dancer. Her trance style was energetic with vocal chopped and chunky bass in her music while also ironically adopting winter themes to her performances including some traditional Russian folk dancing. She became a Star AG-Queen, earning the same highest degree as Mariana but as a young adult performer, becoming popular on the island and was Russia's #3 AG-Queen.

    Aside from being a fan favorite, Afina was also a fan to Qirex's most talented AG-Pilot, Nadia Elenova. 26yrs old at the time, Nadia was Qirex's ace pilot, winning all sorts of races, giving pilots and their arch rivals from Auricom a run for their money. Afina had complete inspiration from Nadia, hoping to become an AG-pilot herself, including a chance to race with her idol. However Afina was still long ways to have permission to pilot an AG-race craft, especially a craft from her own team, but she didn't hope too much however, still enjoying teasing fans as an AG-Queen for the next 3 years.

    In 2209, now 25yrs old, Afina would get the chance on becoming a pilot, though Qirex wouldn't just give their craft right away until seeing what she could do at first. Like all pilots, they would start out racing a FEISAR craft at the Makanian AG-Race Academy, Afina however, took more private training back home in Russia. Though a young adult, she was pretty short in height; piloting such a massive craft seemed overestimating to her, instead she took her training on an older but smaller craft to use on makeshift circuits for the time being. Training with Qirex was like training with the Russian Spetsnaz, Qirex wanted the best out of Afina in order to become one of the best pilots in their lineup. Female or not, she was trained mercilessly with no excuses, otherwise she wasn't good enough to be on their race team. Much like her early life she toughens herself again dealing with the harshness of her instructors. Sooner or later, she would feel ready to pilot the much larger craft and to take her training from there on. Experiencing the mass of the heavy craft, she took her time with it throughout testing grounds in Siberia for about a year, while also dealing with the harsh frozen weather from time to time. Fully experiencing herself with everything she was taught with, Afina surpasses every trainee getting to where Qirex needed her to be. Throughout all this time training in both Irkutsk/Siberia, her father finally gained an impression while working on the craft. His daughter was now an AG-Pilot, and racing with Qirex was the only best choice she could ever make, helping him out by flying his group's design in the process. She felt ready to compete in the FX400 Racing League days later for the 2211 season.

    Afina was a strong contender during her competition in the FX League. Still young but a fear on the track, pilots would think to look twice to avoid her as much as possible. Even if they don't spot her, she may already be in front of them with a set of mines heading their path. She was left unchallenged from her division during tournaments, winning for her and her team during the first year into AG-Racing. This soon grabbed the attention of pilot Nadia Elenova, spectating her during events around west Makana. Feeling honored by her idle, she was given full respect, including an offer to join a squad of skilled handpicked pilots for the following league. Like so, Afina was given a lead pilot for further race seasons, calling himself Vadik Sidorov. Despite the age gap, they showed no problem partnering with one another. Both pilots would do what Qirex demanded them, targeting Auricom as always a matter of principle and showing no mercy to the other teams as possible. The two became dominant throughout the couple of seasons, compared with current pilots on their team like Canadian, Rory Pinewood, Icelander, Balawyn Samirsdøttir, and Scottish, Heather Mckellen. Qirex was quite the force to be reckoned with; their rivals from Auricom didn't seem to have a chance as they continue to win out events over their American adversaries every following season. With Afina she was outmatching everyone on the track, but by 2214 however, she would soon meet her own.

    On a practice run in Sinucit Vineta A, she runs into an Auricom Flash class pilot during the course of her speed lap. 22yr old Rachel Vega was a decent professional pilot, trying out the course to qualify for a single race in the area. Afina was pushed by Qirex to go up against their arch rival team, choosing to mess with the young pilot. Racing in a higher speed class than her, she tried to force Rachel into racing her. Quickly passing Rachel, she scrapes the side of her craft, having her full attention. Rachel didn't know who she was but didn't want to start anything with the Qirex pilot. When it didn't work, Afina kept harassing the Auricom pilot again until she got angered enough to try and race her, despite flying on a Flash class craft. Their unexpected head to head race went on for 2 laps, but Rachel couldn't seem to keep up to her. Frustrated to catch up, she loses her racing line on a corner and hits her craft on the side of the track, causing her ship to spin out. The Qirex pilot (Afina) had outran her, speeding off on the track leaving the Auricom pilot behind. Rachel was confused why she had forced her to race, but Afina was only provoking the team in general.

    Moments later back at the hanger bay, Afina was soon approached by the Auricom pilot again, frustrated and confused why she provoked her to race. Afina, being snotty, told Rachel to back off, and have her teammates surround her to push the Auricom pilot away. Oddly to her, Afina was shorter when compared. Rachel was 5'10" while Afina was 5'3", yet she was intimidated by the two male teammates including Afina herself. She was sent off with Auricom, only to meet Afina again a few months later. By that time, the Delta Tournament was officially open for rapier class pilots in the area. Not only was Afina eligible, so was Rachel who was anxious to race her again figuring out who she was. To Afina she still underestimated her, even during the first few races in the tournament taking place at the Makana entertainment Arena featuring Anulpha Pass. By the 4th race however, Afina started to realize Rachel's true skills on the track. After tricking her with a bomb placement in the first race, the Auricom pilot began studying her tactics on practice runs as well as race footage from her past races. While it may seem she'll not research her on time for the next race, Rachel was already highly skilled enough to learn everything quickly from a matching pilot. She was trained by her elite teammate, Tyrrell Byron, but was also trained by AG-pilot/historian, Noelani Kekumu from Goteki 45. She had the skill to race Afina but only needed the courage to do so, despite having a bubbly optimistic personality. By the 4th race on Khara Descent, Rachel would counter Afina's tactics on the track, winning the round with a far lead.

    At this point Afina decided to push herself on the last race in Modesto Heights. The Auricom pilot was now a threat in the race, leading her by a few points. She needed to win this race if she were to earn gold for the tournament; otherwise this would be her first loss to Auricom in her entire race career. Throughout the race they fought and counter each other with the weapon pickups on the track, staying in front of the other pilots throughout. For once Afina got nervous of Rachel, still sticking behind her or sometimes passing using a weapon or turbo. It was to a point where both their shield energy went critical by the final lap. Afina was in front throwing defensive weapons to eliminate Rachel from the race yet avoiding them all. After jumping the Sigam Span and almost close to the finish going through one last corner, all of a sudden a purple light came right towards Afina while turning and immediately she was teleported back at the hanger bay. Turns out she got hit by a plasma bolt with her craft, ejecting out automatically while her craft got destroyed immediately after. Rachel got a lucky shot at her on the final turn, winning the Delta Tournament overall. Because of this, Afina was pushed back acouple of positions on the leaderboard, placing herself in 4th place behind Goteki and Icaras. She couldn't believe what just happened, and for the first time, Qirex was disappointed in her performance on the track. They leave soon after the medals were given, with Auricom winning the tournament. Continuing on with the rest of the season and preparing for the next, Rachel Vega would become Afina's new arch nemesis.

    Despite the let down from the Delta Tournament, Afina was becoming the next step of being one of Qirex's best female pilots next to Nadia. She was still Nadia's favorite pilot along with few others within the elite rankings on her team. During the course of the FX500 league though, both Auricom and Qirex reach their highest tension in the league, pushing themselves to have an all-out war in every race they'll compete in, resulting in many eliminations. Qirex was completely set out to destroy Auricom's new race craft as much as possible, using all of their pilots to set course to follow Auricom in any race event they entered. Afina and Vadik were the only close ranked pilots to go against Rachel and Tyrrell, all racing in Rapier to Phantom class events in standard AGRL tournaments. But despite all their pilots following orders from the racing team, now in the hands of Nadia, Afina however had mixed feelings of the team's new motives. All she wanted was just to race.

    Afina Rusakova has earned at least 20 medals by 2217. (8G/8S/2B) Still racing for Qirex, she is mostly focused on overall racing rather than seeing the complete destruction of Auricom Research Industries. It was to a point where Afina wanted to question her Idol, Nadia back in her office in Irkutsk about her motives, only to be led out after their argument and was not allowed to speak of it again. From what she could understand, Nadia wanted the whole race commission by challenging the Belmondo foundation, using her allied teams to weaken the teams who support them, primarily Auricom. Afina continues to follow orders even though she didn't like what her team was pushing, in the process of putting more pilots in danger. She's still rivaled to Rachel overall, but it all might change when Tigron unexpectedly joins the scene in 2218.
