    Default JX350 Racing League Pilot Profiles

    This thread will have all of the pilot profiles of the JX350 racing league. The idea came from the JX350 Roleplay thread by Challenger #001 and Synergy2048's pilot profiles. This fanfic mashes the two worlds together to form the new JX350 Racing League Pilot Profiles.

    I would like to give a shout out to those two for making such a creative Wipeout Universe.

    *This chapter contains some of Challenger's characters.



    Prolouge


    A couple of semi-transparent screens appeared in a dark room before an editor as he began to type in some info. The man, who was in a white-collared shirt, business pants, was working like a man possessed, working quickly as if a deadline was coming up, his green eyes glued to the screens before him, sometimes using his hands to flick specks of his brown hair away from his view. The info he typed was a biography of sorts as he used a holographic style keyboard to enter the info. While there were some info that was missing, the man typed in what he knew about the many people who appeared on the screen before him. He moved his hands about to move from one screen to another as he managed to fill in as many blanks as he could find with the right info if necessary. Soon though, he finally managed to finish up the last bio of each person and with a couple of quick swipes, he was able to sort out all of the biographies of every person and placed every screen of each bio in front of the man.

    With a smile, he was finished with his writing and editing when a door behind him slid open with a hiss. The man was in his middle ages as he wore a business suit, complete with dress shoes, with his black with some specks of gray hair naturally down, but still not disruptive in a professional environment. He stepped into the room as the editor turned to face him as he got out of his chair, opening his right hand as the businessman did the same to greet each other when he made eye contact with his brown eyes while firmly shaking each other’s hands.

    (Editor) “Mister Krystian Atkinson.”

    Both of them soon let their hands go.

    (Krystian) “Are the info on the junior pilots finished?”
    (Editor) “Just got it done sir. I got as much info as I could. They are ready to be published to the archives with your approval.”
    (Krystian) “How much is missing?”
    (Editor) “The Tigron girl has some missing info. Because Tigron was able to purge their systems of all of their data, I was unable to get all of the info. Aside from her though and some information I can’t get a hold of, everyone else is done.”
    (Krystian) “What kind of info?”
    (Editor) “Personal life stuff for some of the pilots.”
    (Krystian) “Very well, it is not necessary to get every minor thing.”
    (Editor) “Anything else you need done before this gets archived?”
    (??????) “I just need to look at the info myself before it gets published.”

    Another man was standing at the doorway and much like Krystian, he was in a business suit and dress shoes himself. His black hair was combed back as he kept his appearance as professional as possible. He walked forward to Krystian and made eye contact with him with his lavender eyes and as Krystian turned to face him, he kept his own pure brown eyes on the man before him as they both shook hands before letting go again and spoke to each other.

    (Krystian) “Mister Tarvus Orcorus.”
    (Tarvus) “Mister Atkinson, it’s good to see you. Has our editor finished his job?”
    (Krystian) “Yes sir, he just finished the bios on all of the junior pilots. He is ready to publish them once you get a look at them.”
    (Tarvus) “Anything I should know before I do?”

    Krystian cleared his throat before proceeding.

    (Krystian) “There is some missing info for the Tigron girl. Tigron was able to purge their systems before the editor could get his hands on it. However, the editor has gotten the important bits for her and was able to fill the blanks with them. There are some personal bits about some of the other junior pilots our editor couldn’t get a hold of either, but it shouldn’t be much of a concern.”
    (Tarvus) “I see. It is not necessary at this point. Good work.”
    (Krystian) *sigh* “It was also a very dangerous call to keep the season going and not expelling that girl sir, even after that race at Kyoto. A lot of pilots got hurt on that day and it was only thanks to ‘them’ that all of the pilots were saved. Not to mention how many spectators got hurt by her as well.”

    Tarvus nodded as he replied, straightening his collar and tie as well.

    (Tarvus) “I personally made sure that Tigron and their sponsor, the BSV, were dismantled. They shouldn’t be anyone’s problem anymore.”
    (Krystian) “Let us hope so. I would like the next season for the junior league to go more smoothly and never see them again.”

    The Dane tucked in his collar a bit.

    (Tarvus) “I will make sure it does. Now, about the bios.”
    (Editor) “Here they are sir.”

    The editor placed his hands before the screens as they floated towards him. He then floated his hand over the first screen before he gave it a tap. The two race commissioners as well as the editor began to examine the bios before them…

    Bio


    As an old saying goes, if you want first place in AG-racing, you need a Frenchman. AG-Racing is not an easy sport to get into and while the junior leagues were set up to welcome new and skilled pilots to the professional leagues of the FX series, many would have a shaky season or two. This especially applied to Mercutian De Gautet of Van Uber, who has been in the junior league for two seasons despite not winning a single race. It is not to say that some pilots have graduated from the JX series to the FX series; including Garielle Zuzovnitch, Tara Shannon, Morgan Victius, Park-So-Gun, and more recently Ishak Bin Yusof. With more junior pilots coming into the JX series, many other teams began to set up junior teams of their own, including AG-Systems’ Friends in Speed junior team and Qirex’s Quantax Dynamics junior team; even Piranha reinstated their junior team, Amazon Fury, to compete in the junior leagues. Many new pilots were soon turning up for the upcoming JX350 racing league to compete in the hotly contested JX350 league. One pilot however, along with his friends, changed the racing world forever thanks to their amazing first season and, despite their young age, they made AG-racing look so easy and turned the common phrase on its head. That pilot is Michael Sanderson, the American lead pilot of AG-Systems’ Friends in Speed Junior racing team and the leader of the group the Miracle Eight, who dominated the first JX350 season, making him one of the youngest pilots with the best start in his racing career.

    Born in a small town near Los Angeles, the city of entertainment and the location of the race track that hosted the final race of the JX350 Season Finale Tournament in 2217, Michael Sanderson is the only son of a hardworking, low income family. Born on November 2, 2202, the family was struggling financially. Despite being promoted up to higher ranks in the AG-Systems workforce by Sakura Tanaku and Inatu Itsua for better pay, the debt on the family was increasing by the day. However, they were given a huge raise to their paychecks if they were to work at AG-Systems’ main facility in Tokyo, Japan. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the money to cover the traveling expenses for all three of them. It was then on a fateful day when the family met someone special that would be their lifeline. After another day at work was over, days prior to their deadline to head to Japan, the father and mother of Michael Sanderson ran into the world famous body builder and AG-Racer of Triakis, Buster Harding. He noted that the family was having financial trouble and he offered a way to help them. He said that he normally takes clients for body building and conditioning, but he wanted to try something new. With the family’s permission the Sanderson family’s son, Michael Sanderson, was placed under Buster’s care while they were at work in Japan and pay off any debts they have as well as the money for the trip their and afford a home in Tokyo. The family sold their previous home and would go on to pay off their debts and make money for a better life in Japan.

    Buster Harding was used to working for his clients for only a couple of weeks, but this would be his first time taking care of someone over many years. He knew that what he teaches to his clients wouldn’t work for Michael. Instead of teaching him on his own, he would find someone similar to him and found the perfect match to work alongside with Michael, Johnathan Hale. During their childhood, Buster put Michael and Johnathan through some of the toughest high output and high intensity workouts as they traveled the world together. Weight lifting, swimming, and even martial arts, Buster put the two through a lot of hell that even made his previous clients pale in comparison. The parents of the Sanderson family and the Hale family made a huge risk investing in Buster Harding, but in the very end, it was all paid off. Michael, along with his childhood friend Johnathan, were some of the best students that Buster has ever trained. They had the age of a young boy, but the dexterity, endurance, knowledge, reflexes, speed, and even the strength of Olympic champions all in one package. He and Johnathan were some of the finest boys that Buster worked with, surpassing even some of the toughest expectations he set for them. After twelve years under his care, Buster finally parted way with the two after teaching them to live on their own, paying off any living expenses they have. The two would go on to be childhood friends and have pushed themselves and even each other to achieve goals in grade school, who were particularly popular with the girls thanks to their appearance, courtesy of Buster Harding.

    The two completely aced every test and assignment that was given to them and have graduated from grade with top honors. They intended to carry the same results over to middle and high school, but a month before the fall semester began for their school they received something special. During the month of July, the two received a letter of recommendation from the Good Smile Racing Academy, located in Tokyo, Japan. The GSRA were looking for some of the top students around the world who were interested in AG racing and sent out invites to them all. During their childhood years, the Michael and Johnathan were trained and learned how to use AG technology from Buster Harding. He even placed them in amateur AG-Kart racing and utilizing the knowledge from Buster Harding, the two did surprisingly well. The two became interested in AG racing after seeing the FX350 and 400 championships that was broadcasted when Buster took part in both series, with both boys watching him race. When Michael received the invite, he didn’t want to waste the opportunity to become an AG pilot. After all, this would be his opportunity to meet his family again that he hasn’t seen in years, even if he succeeded or not. Johnathan followed him as well, being interested in the same ideals as Michael was.

    The two traveled to Japan with the help of Buster, after selling their home on August 15th, and became students at GSRA. The two used what they learned from grade school and passed the first evaluation with a ninety three percent score on day zero of GSRA’s opening day. While the two breezed past the first test, they learned the school will not take them lightly thanks to the higher standards compared to the schools in America. After the initial evaluation, he and Johnathan met six other friends before the opening ceremonies began, a group of friends that would be a part of a group that he’ll be a part of four year later. They were Mizuki Nakajima, Hitomi Yamaguchi, Ayaka Hamasaki, Alexis Anderson, Eric Patterson, and Sora Akiyama. Soon however, they went through the biggest changes of their lives.

    During the second part of the second evaluation Michael, along with his friends, were caught in a lightning strike that hit the academy building while they were still in the simulator for the second evaluation. When that occurred, the power went out and they were locked in the simulator while being in a coma. When powered returned, the simulator was complete, they were sent to the infirmary to discover that they were okay. Their results however, would surprise not just the academy, but also some of the racing teams that would eventually take interest. Michael along with his friends surprised the instructors and teachers as they passed the second evaluation with numbers beyond belief, even going as far as hitting speeds and zones that nobody has ever touched. To top it off, their bio readings were completely off the charts, making the eight of them seem superhuman despite looking normal.

    The eight became the top students in the Good Smile Racing Academy right off the evaluation and would go on to ace all of the assignments and exams that were thrown at them, even becoming the school’s very first student council with Michael becoming the president of the Student Council. The whole thing seem to be a walk in the park for Michael and his friends. During their time at GSRA, Michael and his friends visited the infirmary weekly after the freak lightning strike for medical checkups to ensure that their vitals and bio readings are normal. After seeing the same data, the checkup days eventually became monthly up to their graduation. During the weeks of the academy’s conditioning for AG racing, Michael would once again meet his long time caretaker and the one who taught him everything in his childhood, Buster Harding. Much like his friends, Buster Harding put him and Johnathan through hell once again with various extreme goals and they surpassed Buster’s expectations. Buster was proud of Michael and Johnathan that the two have grown up and have mastered everything he taught them. He was even proud to see their friends can rise to the occasion like Michael and Johnathan did when it was necessary. In his own words to the directors of the academy when he was told to give his personal opinion on the eight students for their final grade:

    (Buster) “I can’t see anyone else that I’ve gave lessons to that have gone the distance than Michael, Johnathan, and their friends. They are some of the best, if not the best students I have trained and they are some of my finest work I’ve put in. Each and every one of them were able to surpass my goals I set for them, no matter how insurmountable they were. They are some of the best students I’ve worked with in my lifetime and I can already see a great future for the eight of them.”

    During the last few weeks of GSRA’s semester before graduation came about, each of the team principles from AG-Systems and Auricom, who also visited on the academy’s opening day, visited the academy to find a new set of pilots for their junior racing teams. Each of them looked at each and every student’s grades, history, and records to find the perfect pilot for their team. It was then that Sakura Tanaku, the head of AG-Systems, immediately took interest in the top ten students, particularly, Michael Sanderson and Mizuki Nakajima, his girlfriend. When the afternoon races were going on around the racing circuit around the academy’s campus, Sakura witnesses Michael from the top floor of the racing academy, racing against the other students who were in AG-Karts, breaking records and winning races using only the new suits made by Mizuki Nakajima and an AG hover-board he personally built for himself and his friends. The head director of the academy said that he made the hover-boards and his friend, Mizuki Nakajima, made the Adaptive Flight Suits, which adapts to the user’s body and the environment and both have worked in tangent with each other. Sakura was immediately impressed by his performance on the track of the academy, using only a hover-board to beat the other students, as well as the knowledge he gained during his time at GSRA and from his parents when he was little. He did after all, create some inventions when he was very young.

    When the time came for the team principles to choose which students were going to race for their junior team, she chose Michael Sanderson without hesitation. After all, his father and mother would be happy to see him face to face again after years of being apart and would be proud of him on how much he has grown, despite communicating to each other via screen communication from time to time. She also chose to recruit Mizuki Nakamura as well, seeing that the two would make the perfect pair for the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior racing team and that her family was working in the main AG-Systems facility along with Michael’s family. She also chose Jessica Caluroso, the sister of the prodigy Thierry Caluroso, a member of the professional racing team of AG-Systems, as well as Alexis Anderson, and Sora Akiyama, to round out the junior team. The announcement was made after the second last race of the semester by the director herself during an assembly meeting that the top ten students of the academy were given a spot in the junior racing league for the two teams. Michael and his friends were congratulated on making into a racing team, though some of them would be separated for the most part.

    After their final race of their last school year, they were called to the director’s office shortly after. When they got there, they met the head director of the GSRA, who invited them into her office to meet the team principles, Sakura Tanaku of AG-Systems and Jessie Fairbank of Auricom Research Industries. The team principles met the students and explained to the ten students that each of them will be racing for their team in the junior leagues after the team principles decided on who to take, with Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, Sora, and Jessica racing for AG-Systems, courtesy of Sakura Tanaku. When they met in person after their meeting, she told Michael and Mizuki that their families would be happy to see them again and hopes that they would make them proud. This especially applied to Michael, ever since he parted ways with his when he was little back in 2204.

    When the school year was finally over, Michael and his friends graduated from the academy with top honors in 2216 and would go on to race for their respective teams. Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, Sora, and Jessica were then taken to the primary AG-Systems facility in Tokyo with the help of Sakura Tanaku. When they got there, the five were surprised to see how big the facility was when they were outside of the building. Michael and his friends were told by Sakura Tanaku herself that they’ll meet their families’ there in a surprise announcement in the facility. Sakura Tanaku wanted them to wait outside so that she can arrange a meeting with the employees and pilots of AG-Systems. When the meeting came about, Sakura Tanaku wanted the five kids to wait just outside the usual place, that place being the hanger bay, where the meeting was going to take place. After some planning between her and the five kids, she started the announcement once everyone was at the meeting. When Michael was presented as their final pilot as he stepped into the hanger bay and out from behind Sakura Tanaku when she presented his name, his family was in tears of joy when they finally saw him in person for the very first time in years and reunited with him, seeing how much he has grown and matured over the years as the crowd applauded and cheered for the family in smiles. The family always wanted their son to follow their footsteps to work at AG-Systems and help contribute to society in a good way, but never knew that their son would be a pilot for the team. They were very happy to see him make a lot of progress since he parted ways with them.

    The five kids were given the tour of the AG-Systems facility from Sakura Tanaku herself after the meeting, touring every part of the AG-Systems facility. After the tour, the five kids met the professional pilots of the team. Shortly after the introductions, Jessica broke away from the group to reunite with her brother, Thierry, and Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora hanged out with each other for the weekend. The next day, the kids went under training from Katsu and Thierry, teaching them how the AG-Systems ships worked, how to fly them, and what they need to know for each event for the upcoming junior racing league. After teaching them what they know, they wanted them to run a couple of laps on some of the simulated tracks of the FX350 league with Sofia, who was also a student pilot for AG-Systems, who recently went professional. After a few laps and showing off what they learned, it became clear that both have taught them everything they know and all of them have learned very well, with each of them landing the most barrel rolls, most perfect laps, and some of the fastest lap times they’ve ever seen in their lifetime after a series of simulated runs on most of the tracks in the world. The five were an oddball to Katsu and Thierry at first since they have little to no history in the AG-racing sport, but after the demonstration the five fit right into the team.

    Weeks prior to the racing season where the applications for the junior racing leagues were due, Sakura Tanaku and Inatu Itsua had a difficult time choosing who would lead the junior team thanks to the near identical results of the five junior pilots. Sofia, who looked at the results herself, suggested to pit the kids against each other in a no weapon simulated race on Metropia, the racing circuit located in Kyoto’s business quadrant, on Phantom class speed, the fastest speed in most racing events, using the same exact ships, the FX350/400 ships. The would-be couple was skeptical at first, but with Katsu’s and Thierry’s recommendation (after all, they knew that the best way to settle a matter like this was to race) the would-be couple decided to take Sofia’s suggestion and run the simulated race. Michael, Mizuki, Aleixs, Sora, and Jessica were pitted against each other in a five way no weapons simulated race on Metropia to see who would be the lead pilot for the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior racing team utilizing only their skills. The race was fast and it was extremely close, almost too close to call. But after reviewing the close race suggested by Soifa, it was clear to the couple, Katsu, Thierry, and Sofia who would be the lead pilot for the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior racing team for AG-Systems. Despite an identical racing line from all of the junior pilots, Michael Sanderson won the race by a very small fraction of a second and he was chosen to be the lead pilot of the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior racing team, with Mizuki, Aleixs, Sora, and Jessica as his wingman and secondary pilots. As his wingman and his girlfriend, Mizuki will protect him from anyone that would attempt to harm him while Michael will do the same for her, seeing how they have been in love with each other for months now. Aleixs, Sora, and Jessica on the other hand will be supporting them whenever they can and hopes that the five can succeed in the racing league. While the junior pilots can even topple the professional pilots of AG-Systems, they would have to prove it in the junior league. The five were ready for the junior league and after submitting an application for the use of the Adaptive Flight Suits in the junior leagues, Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora, along with four others, were allowed to use the suits in the racing leagues after it went through approval process of the AGRC, impressed on how it works and hopes that, with Mizuki’s approval, it can be utilized in the future.

    When the JX350 league started, Michael was one of the few junior pilots with a great start, winning his first race in Vineta K, with minimum weapon usage. However, it was the Eliminator events that showed him that the competition was fierce. Without much knowledge on who he is, Michael was immediately challenged by Maksim Zolnerowich of Triakis without warning. Michael hoped that he could get away with minimum weapons usage throughout the season, but the race at Talon’s Junction said otherwise. During the race on Talon’ Junction, he was targeted by Maksim when he sent a plasma bolt his way. While it did miss Michael, the bolt somehow breached the Entertainment Confinement System (ECS) Cage and hit the Concordia Loop generator of the Talon’s Junction facility, in which Michael was caught in its immediate area of effect when the generator let out a shockwave of unknown origin. While Michael didn’t sustain any injuries, this ended up affecting him as he was the closest to the dark energy shockwave that the loop gave off as a result of the Concordia Loop Accident. He also witnessed something about Maksim that was off when he show aggressive behavior at the end of the race when he climbed out of the Triakis ship. Michael took the remainder of Week 5 and 6 of the season off to recover and to practice for Week 7.

    During his time off, Michael took note of a press conference in which the lead pilot of Qirex’s professional racing team, Rory Pinewood, was quick to criticize Michael’s piloting skills when he was asked about it as being ‘too soft’. As Rory Pinewood said in his own words at the press conference:

    (Rory) “Michael Sanderson has great talent and great piloting skills for a junior that even he can surpass me or any of the other professional pilots for the other teams. However, he has been too soft on the competition and his rivals are using it to their advantage and the Talon’s Junction race showed just that. If he is going to win the JX350 season for AG-Systems, or even survive for that matter, he needs to fight back, use the weapons instead of absorbing them. He needs to show his rivals that he is not going to take it laying down.”

    When Michael returned to the JX350 racing league, he did just that. While racing skill was still a top priority, he began to use the weapons against those who would block his path or even try to eliminate him, with the exceptions of his allies and Harimau. When Michael was asked by the press about Harimau when he chose not to eliminate their lead pilot of the team, Kulap Metharom, from his returning race at Talon’s Junction when he had a clear line of sight on her and used raw skill to pass her instead, he said in his own words:

    (Michael) “It’s difficult to hate a team when they’re being so damn nice to you.”

    While he wasn’t the more aggressive pilot on the grid his weapons skills were apparent and he was able to defend himself and make moves to the front with weapons when necessary, making him and his girlfriend, Mizuki Nakajima, AG-Systems’ trump card for Eliminator events. After the Zone Battle on Talon’s Junction during Week 8, Michael and Maksim met face to face once more, while in front of the media and the commentators that were there. The two pilots exchanged words of rivalry:

    (Michael) “I see that’ve you’ve recovered from the simulator.”
    (Maksim) “Yes, and I see that you kept your skills honed even after the accident.”
    (Michael) “I have my ways to keep myself busy.”
    (Maksim) ”Looks like you know what you’re doing. I like the way you think. I believe it’s time that entertained our guest, don’t you think?”
    (Michael) “I believe that we made that decision a long time ago.”
    (Maksim) “Heh, although we had a rough start, I’m starting to like you already.”

    The two finally have their rivalry set between them for the whole season, making it the most exciting rivalry since the Tetsuo Sisters Rivalry between Auricom’s Arial Tetsuo and Qirex’s Arian Tetsuo during the F3600, especially during the Venom Tournament, Flash Series, and the Virtual Series. When Rory was asked again about Michael’s improvements over the course of the JX350 league, he said in his own words:

    (Rory) “I’ve never seen a pilot that has taken my criticism to heart and improve himself on it. He is one of the most improved pilots I’ve seen in my lifetime and can even surpass all of us, and even me, if he goes professional.”

    He has gone as far as inviting him and his friend to private Zone Battle sessions with them along with ‘The Bad Boys’, consisting of Rory of Qirex, Buster of Triakis, Ferrai of Goteki, and Kaet’yrun of Mirage, meaning that the kids have a lot of experience in the new simulated experimental race mode.

    However, it is not to say that Michael wasn’t without another rival. Michael was challenged by Petia Romanov of Qirex’s junior team Quantax Dynamics out of the blue so that Petia can win the heart of Michael’s girlfriend, Mizuki Nakajima. Despite his bold move to challenge them both as well as the other members of AG-Systems and Auricom to ‘win the hearts of the other girls on their team’, Petia’s flying skills were poor and unrefined and wasn’t as much as a threat to Michael and the others as they were able to top him very easily despite his repeated attempts to challenge them. Michael wasn’t sure why Petia was doing this to start with, especially when he is just a better pilot over Petia. However, Petia continued to challenge Michael and his friends, more notably Johnathan Hale of Auricom, which only became an annoyance until – with Michael’s suggestion – Mizuki, Alexis, Hitomi, and Ayaka gave him the kick between the legs he deserved, finally putting an end to the inane rivalry while earning the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45, who did the same to Gryffyth Dawod of Icaras at one given point in time.

    During his time from racing, Michael has made many allies and friends on and off the track. Scarlett Arekuruu, Yin Ruan, and Hyun Gim of Goteki 45 became allies with him and his friends after they first met in Vienta K of Makana. Hafiz Nejem, Alqamar Raqisas, and Alshshsmas Raqisas of Mirage became allies with Michael after racing together, as well as helping the green and white team celebrate their first podium finish in Vineta K and their first win, along with their subsequent podium finishes. And finally Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, who was always curious how Michael and his friends are so consistent in Zone events and has asked them one question:

    (Mercutian) “How you guys do it?”

    The eight took Mercutian in for some private Zone Battle sessions, Detonator sessions, and Zone sessions to improve the Van-Uber pilot. Though Mercutian has always been inconsistent, he was soon getting better and better in the Zone simulations, eventually hitting Supersonic speeds on Syncopia, Anulpha Pass, and Moa Therma. Michael suggests that Mercutian, with practice, will be a great competitor in the long run. Buster Harding of Triakis, despite the rivalry between both AG-Systems and Triakis, would also take Michael and his friends for practice on various tracks to keep their skills honed so that they can be prepared for anything. After all, he has taken care of the eight personally and their results in extreme physical activities showed on and off the track.

    Most of Michael’s off time however, was spent with his family and friends. Michael visited his family in Tokyo whenever he could and when he was with his friends, they would always join Scarlett and her friends for some intense physical training on an island near Makana that she and her friends were once stranded on during a storm that she made it her home. Michael and his friends would always get involved in the most physically and mentally demanding training on the island before returning to their respective teams for the races that occurred on the weekends. What kind of training that he went through is unknown, but Michael and his friends have said it was unusual but very helpful in the long term, especially Sora and himself as Scarlett took special care of the two boys and gave the two boys ‘special’ training.

    Michael, along with his friends, were given the group name, the Miracle Eight, for performing impossible feats or even making comebacks. The group consisted of four boys and girls including himself, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora of AG-Systems, as well as Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Ayaka of Auricom. As Michael continued to consistently place in the top three and win multiple races and gold medals, he became one of the most popular boys on the circuit, and one of the most attractive and cutest boys along with Sora Akiyama from the same team after many racing fans voted on who is the most attractive and cutest boy of the four. The eight kids, as well as the Makanian Amazon, would always be invited by various fashion and model companies for photo shoots and have been seen in various covers of fashion magazines as well as photo shoots. The Miracle Eight, along with the Makanian Amazons, were the most attractive and cute looking kids the world has ever seen and many racing fans were eager to see of them in person and acquire autographs or even selfies whenever possible. It was also noted that Michael and his teammate, Sora, were also the favorite of many female fans. Many fans have been seen him, along with his friends, around the Makanian Amazons, suggesting that the girls have formed a love group between the Miracle Eight. One of the fans asked Michael if he was okay with it and said he was alright with it, though Mizuki would always be his first. The fans are aware of the relationships that he and Mizuki are in as well as the other couples of the Miracle Eight. They have all admitted that their relationships are fun and great, with each of them are getting along with each other well, despite being on different racing teams.

    Not all was rosy however, as the Miracle Eight’s longtime rival returned to face them at the start of the Rapier series. Polina Petrov, who was a rogue student of the Good Smile Racing Academy, was now a part of Tigron Enterprises, who returned to extract vengeance on the Miracle Eight. Michael was the first to note that something happened to her as her appearance has changed, mainly her eyes which were now red instead of blue. What happened to her is exactly unknown, but Xiu Bai of EG-X, who was with her teammates when they crossed paths with him and his friends after the first race day in Metropia, suggested that she was augmented. How she was augmented, or even how Tigron got their hands on the augmentation tools, remains unknown. Much to his relief though, and everyone else, Polina suffered on events that required piloting skills to succeed, particularly Time Trials, Zones, Detonator, and Zone Battles. However, she quickly became a threat in Eliminator and Race events with other competitors on the track as she used them to get the lead in some of the races, even going as far as eliminating half of the competitors, and injuring them in the process, during a race on Metropia to earn her first gold medal in a Single Race event for Tigron. The BSV played the Bulgarian anthem and song across the track when Polina crossed the finish line first. The only Netika Ambulance Shuttle was disabled as a result of an EMP shockwave which was emitted from Polina’s ship. The medics were unable to get to the injured pilots as a result. While some of the injuries were minor to moderate, there were some pilots who sustained severe injuries. Maksim Zolnerowich of Triaks, who was eliminated on the final lap, was in danger of being crushed by his ship when it flipped upside down after its destruction when the ejection system failed. Many cameras from the BSV broadcasted the pilot’s injuries, along with the others, live across the globe whilst celebrating Tigron’s first Race victory, a situation similar to Zala Wolff’s death at Alca Vexus during the F9000 when she was crushed by her ship as a result of her elimination. Michael Sanderson however, arrived just in time to rescue Maksim from his ship with the help of Xiu Bai of EG-X – who was rescued by Scarlett of Goteki 45. Michael used his ship to get to the nearest hospital and Maksim was saved, barely. Unfortunately, he was out for the rest of the season due to the severity of his injuries, putting the rivalry between Michael and him to a grinding halt. However, Joes Peeters, lead pilot of the professional Assegai racing team and chief medic pilot, thanked Michael and his friends for getting the injured pilots to the hospital when the medic team was thrown into chaos.

    Despite his rivalry between him and Maksim, Michael visited the hospital from time to time to check on Maksim. Michael made sure that he was okay as he and his friends visited him along with Daphne Summers and Ida Pesuen of Triakis as they took turns to keep an eye on Maksim during his recovery. Both have told Michael that Maksim can still fly, but he’ll be recovering for a while and won’t be ready until next season. Before he left to take on Polina again at Ubermall, located on Makana for the remainder of the Rapier Series, Maksim said one thing to Michael that he made sure to follow through:

    (Maksim) “Make sure she pays for what she did to me and our rivalry.”
    (Michael) “I’ll make sure she does.”

    Michael took in their last conversation between them and made sure he remembered it well. Throughout the remainder of the Rapier Series and Phantom Series, he took his feelings and Maksim’s words to heart and – where he could – dominated over Polina in the races he took part in. Nobody dared to take Polina head on thanks to her heavily armored Tigron Bull ship, but Michael and his friends were more than willing to do just that, even in Eliminator events, where Polina targeted specifically Michael and Johnathan and both have targeted her back, something that even impressed Rory Pinewood of Qirex, happy to see him and his friends taking the fight to Tigron. This eventually led to the discovery of the Bull ship’s key weakness.

    Before the Phantom series, Michael and his friends hatched a plan to eliminate Tigron from the JX350 racing league along with the help of the other junior teams when he and his friends discovered a hole in Tigron’s heavily armored ship that was deemed indestructible. When the Phantom series came to the Amphiseum, he and his friends got together at an undisclosed location where he invited the other members of the junior teams to meet and set up a plan to destroy the Tigron ship before the series began. Many other members doubted them at first, but when they saw the holographic images of the weak spot of the Tigron Bull ship, the others soon began to collaborate with him and his friends to bring down the ship. The junior members soon organized the plan and would execute it at Tech De Ra, a race track located in Arizona.

    While at the Amphiseum, he and his friends of the Miracle Eight enjoyed massive popularity around Las Vegas’ entertainment center. Many fans of the group crowded around them, asking for autographs and photos of each of them. It got to a point where even security needed to escort them before a race, but Michael and his friends were more than happy to sign autographs and even take photos of them with the fans. They became the big buzz of the stadium and the city of Las Vegas that many fans wanted to see them race in person. The demand for tickets to the stadium of the Amphiseum skyrocketed and the stadium were soon packed with anxious and eager fans to see them race, minus the only one Eliminator event Polina won, but the Miracle Eight were still able to top her in the other races, astonishing the fans as they cheered the juniors on.

    The racing league soon moved to Tech De Ra and when the Phantom Tournament came about, the Miracle Eight and the other junior teams put the plan into action. It soon came down the third last lap of the final race of the tournament when Polina’s ship was finally destroyed for good before finishing the Phantom tournament in first place for his team. The commentators’ quotes who witnessed it along with the spectators on Tech De Ra of the final race of the Phantom Tournament say it all:

    (Commentator 1) “Wow, I can’t believe it! Tigron’s ship is actually taking damage!”
    (Commentator 2) “That armor may be thick, but the other teams are now taking the opportunity to get rid of Tigron and their pilot, Polina, as they found the crack in that thick armor of Tigron’s ship!”
    (Commentator 1) “Scarlett of Goteki just laid out a minefield just between turns one and two and Johnathan takes the inside turn and avoids the mine field and…Wow! I can’t believe it, he just dropped a bomb right behind the minefield! That Tigron ship is so heavy it just going to fly straight into the field of mines and bombs!”
    (Commentator 2) “Damn right, Polina just got caught in the minefield and just ran into the bomb as well, she going to take a massive speed loss and damage as she is drifting to our side of the track and…”
    (Commentator 1) “Look, Michael of AG-Systems is coming up from behind and…Oh my god! He’s going in too fast, he won’t be able to-“
    (Commentator 2) “He’s not passing her, he’s ramming her to outside wall of the turn where we are!”

    *the Tigron ship hits the outside wall hard with a loud thud*

    (Commentator 1) “He just rammed the side of Polina’s Tigron ship where the crack in the armor is and has her pinned on the outside wall and-“
    (Commentator 2) “Oh my god, he’s charging a plasma bolt that close to her?! He’s nuts! He’s gonna wipe her out at point blank range with that weapon and with the crack that big, the main core of the ship is exposed!”
    (Commentator 1) “Everyone get down!”

    *as spectators ducked their heads, a short moment of a plasma explosion engulfs the area with plasma energy along with an explosion that covers the area with smoke and dust, before it clears up*

    (Commentator 1) “Is everyone alright?”
    (Commentator 2) “Of course, the ECS cage blocked out the lethal energy that could’ve been fatal to all of us, but that is not what astonishing me right now!”

    *crowd cheers*

    (Commentator 1) “WOW, I can’t believe it! Ladies and gentleman, Tigron has been eliminated!”
    (Commentator 2) “What a miracle! The Tigron ship that has been deemed indestructible which has caused the injury to many people this season has been destroyed by Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems and the lead member of the Miracle Eight!”

    With Tigron’s elimination, Polina and Tigron were disqualified and banned from the Anti-Gravity racing sport for intentionally injuring many of the junior pilots of the league as well as spectators, though no trace of Polina was found when the wreckage was examined suggesting that she ejected from her ship when it was destroyed, but her whereabouts are unknown to this day. The BSV on the other hand were quick to issue many death threats to Michael and the other members of each junior team when he eliminated Tigron’s only ship. Michael then used it against the BSV when he, along with his friends and the other junior pilots that got together, reported it to the race commission, particularly to Krystian Atkinson who ran the JX350 racing league. The BSV were then banned from broadcasting the junior racing league for illegal use of banned technology which gave Tigron the upper hand during races, illegal use of broadcasting technology, and issuing death threats to competitors and were eventually dismantled along with Tigron Enterprises after multiple investigations found that both were collaborating with each other to undermine the JX350 racing league and take over the race commission in an attempt to recreate the F9000 era. Many of the junior team members congratulated him for eliminating Polina. Even Rory Pinewood stepped forward to congratulate Michael for his courageous actions on the track. The team head of Harimau International, Manjula Vamatharen, personally thanked Michael and the Miracle Eight for giving Tigron what was coming to them and finally ridding the world of Tigron for good, though he has said:

    (Michael) “It wouldn’t have been possible without some friends in high places.”

    Michael Sanderson went on compete in the Season Finale of the first JX350 season and win the final tournament of the season with his team and Auricom, as the Miracle Eight took the final tournament of the season and held the very first JX350 cup.

    With the JX350 racing season completed, Michael Sanderson and his friends have become famous all across the globe as many sponsors began to come their way, giving them large paycheck after paycheck. Michael has also won many Junior Constructors’ and Junior Pilots’ Championships in the process, making him the youngest pilot ever to win a championship in various categories. He is also one of the most attractive and cutest boy to compete in the AG-racing leagues, alongside with Sora Akiyama. He was even given many nicknames, including ‘Light Buster’, for breaking and setting new Zone records alongside his friends. A lot of race analysts and experts have gone on saying that if Michael and the Miracle Eight continue to race and should they choose to go professional, they can match or even surpass Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. The Miracle Eight have made a great impact over the season and have generated many fans across the globe. Much like the Makanian Amazons, he and the Miracle Eight were bombarded with requests for interview after interview and have become some of the best pilots on the circuit, and the most attractive as well. Michael is one of the few pilots who has become very well-known across the globe at such a very young age and along with his girlfriend Mizuki Nakajima, who he plans to marry and start a family with in the future, he looks to take it to the next level in the next junior season and, eventually, in the professional series.

    Bio

    Making new technology is not an easy thing to do these days. This was apparent with AG-Systems in their early days when they were much more concerned with researching and creating new technology rather than improving on their current ones back in the 2100’s, resulting in their bankruptcy and their acquisition by G-Tech Systems, though the team was reformed years later. Another difficulty was getting the technology though league authorities and regulations, especially with the RIDS controversy being the biggest debacle in recent years, which cost Triakis their 2206 title during the last FX300 season. However, a young girl has made the biggest breakthrough in history creating an invention in 2214, which was used during the JX350 leagues in 2217 after approval of many racing commissioners and league authorities, who became interested in the new technology she created. That girl is none other than Mizuki Nakajima, AG-Systems’ wingman for the ‘Friends in Speed’ Junior Racing Team and the one who made a breakthrough in the world of AG-racing and is also a member of the Miracle Eight.

    Mizuki Nakajima was born in the city of Tokyo, Japan. Her family worked in many departments of fashion during her childhood and her family were responsible for designing some of the most popular clothing fashion line that is seen all over Japan today. At the same time however, they were also designing ship blue prints for the FX350, 400, and 500 leagues for AG-Systems, making them large amounts of money in their weekly paychecks. Around the age of five, Mizuki was given lessons on how to design various clothing and immediately impressed her parents by creating a new set of clothing line that became an instant hit across Japan. Throughout her life, Mizuki was told by her family that she is expected to play a role in her life, whatever it is working for AG-Systems or for a fashion company in Japan. She is also expected to continue her family’s tradition and have a family. Around the age of seven, she told them that she plans to be a pilot in the AG-racing leagues after watching many races that appeared on datacast channels.

    It was different from making clothing as a completely different mindset was needed to transition from fashion design to AG-pilot and there were many requirements that she had to go through in order to get there. However, she was determined to become a pilot and she passed grade school with high marks and made high place finishes in amateur AG-Kart racing. At the age of 11, she was one of the top students in Japan. But in order for her to get a chance to even race, she needed to find a school specializing in AG-racing. She eventually hears about a new school that opened up in Tokyo called the Good Smile Racing Academy, which specializes in teaching the students the art of AG-racing and conditions them for it as well. Mizuki wasted no time when she got an invite from the academy and she accepted the invitation and traveled to the school.

    The GSRA’s standard were higher than normal compared to other schools and many students failed to get a seat in the school. However, Mizuki passed with a ninety percent flat score. While she got a high score, it was clear that she would need help from some new friends to get by with excellent marks. After her initial evaluation, she met new friends in the school, particularly Michael Sanderson, Johnathan Hale, Hitomi Yamaguchi, Ayaka Hamasaki, Sora Akiyama, Eric Patterson, and Alexis Anderson. Just like her friends though, she went through a life changing moment in her life during the second part of the evaluation. Right before the second part of the evaluation began for Mizuki and her friends, the simulator was interrupted by a lightning strike that hit the building that she and her friends were in, resulting in a black out and the eight being locked into the simulator as well as in a coma. Eventually, the simulation was complete when power returned and the eight were taken to the infirmary for a checkup. Despite being in a coma, everyone was okay, except the results and her bio reads. It was unclear how it happened, but the eight, including her, had their bio readings spike off the charts, surprising the doctors. The evaluation results spoke the same words as all eight of them hit unreachable zones and unbearable speeds. What happened to them was anyone’s guess and remains unknown.

    As a result, Mizuki’s bio readings were off the charts and her knowledge, strength, dexterity, endurance, and agility were given significant boosts beyond human levels, able to ace the classes and exams that were given to her. She and the others were eventually involved with a collaboration that would gain interests in the AGRC. During their second semester in GSRA, she and her friends collaborated in an invention showcase. Mizuki had a hard time coming up with an idea, until she remembered that she was part of a family that was involved with fashion design. She used her knowledge of fashion design, as well as her friends’ and her own body proportions to create her invention. With her friend, Eric, creating the concepts for two different inventions, and Johnathan, Hitomi, and Alexis creating the key portions of her inventions, with Michael, Ayaka, Sora creating the AG-hover-boards that would work in tangent, Mizuki created her greatest invention that would not only be just for fashion, but for racing as well. Her newest invention became known as the Adaptive Flight Suits. The suit would match the user’s body shape and will adapt to the current environment that the user is currently in. Their invention would go on to be extremely popular throughout the academy, even resulting in a photo of her by a student who gave it a few tweaks. Thanks to this, Mizuki’s popularity skyrocketed and she gained a lot of positive comments all over the web, making her one of the most popular girls of the Good Smile Racing Academy.

    During her time at GSRA, Mizuki was also searching for a boy that she can start a family with as part of her family traditions. It was then that she fell in love with the boy of her dreams, Michael Sanderson. Mizuki would do whatever it took to remain by his side, no matter where he went or what happened from there on. However, when the semester came to an end, Mizuki was chosen by Sakura Tanaku to fly for AG-Systems along with Michael Sanderson, Alexis Anderson, and Sora Akiyama, and Jessica Caluroso. She, along with Michael, Alexis, Sora, and Jessica, another friend of hers, were taken to the primary AG-Systems facility in Tokyo, Japan, where she was represented as their pilot for the junior racing team. While she was there, their parents were proud of her that she not only managed to become an AG-racing pilot, she created something that worked beautifully and worked in a racing environment, but also found someone to start a family with.

    She was taught by Katsu Sasaki and Thierry Caluroso how to control and fly the AG-Systems ships, as well as how each race worked. She, along with Alexis Anderson, Sora Akiyama, and Jessica Caluroso, were positioned as wingmen after a simulated race to determine who would become the lead pilot for the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior racing team for AG-Systems, with Michael Sanderson winning first place and becoming leader of the junior team. Mizuki is determined to keep her friends, especially Michael, her boyfriend, safe from anyone or anything attempting to harm them. A month before the start of the JX350, she submitted an application for the use of the Adaptive Flight Suits in the racing league. Before long, the suits was approved for use by the Belmondo Foundation and the league authorities, who were impressed and interested in the technology the suit used, especially Natasha Belmondo, the chairwoman of the Belmondo Foundation, as she hope with Mizuki’s help that she can make it a standard for the future racing leagues.

    Much like Michael Sanderson, Mizuki also got off to a great start in her racing career, with her time trial run at Vineta K being the most iconic start of them all; with a perfect racing line, all possible speed pads hit, all possible barrel rolls landed, all culminating into a perfect run. She made history as she currently holds the fastest lap time and fastest time trial on Vineta K on Venom speed, not to mention her Zone run on Vineta K Reverse broke many records as well; with the fastest speed, most perfect laps, most laps cleared, most perfect zones, top score, and highest zones cleared. When Michael took the remaining week of Week 5 and Week 6 off, Mizuki volunteered to keep an eye on the other teams as well as their own so that Michael can recover from the Concordia Loop Accident. She was glad that the Adaptive Flight Suits were working their magic, much to her relief.

    Mizuki was also one of the tough girls on the track, with her notable weapons use during Eliminator events and, if necessary, Single Race events. After all, she is very protective of her friends. She was also with Michael when he and Maksim of Triakis set their rivalry for the whole season. As a result, she was immediately challenged by secondary pilot of the Boot Camp junior racing team of Triakis, Daphne Summers, and was quick to accept. Mizuki has taken Daphne on from time to time, so it was no surprise that she would be challenged. The following is the conversation that was recorded by the media during this moment:

    (Daphne) “Well, there they go. I guess they’ve finally set something official between them.”
    (Mizuki) “I guess we now have ourselves an official rivalry between the two boys.”
    (Daphne) “Now that you mentioned it, we might as well set our own rivalry so that we won’t get left out of the spotlight.”
    (Mizuki) “Guess I can’t just walk away from this huh?”
    (Daphne) “That’s definitely a no go. I’ll be keeping you on my radar for the whole season.”
    (Mizuki) “And I’ll make sure to keep you entertained throughout the season."
    (Daphne) “It’ll be a pleasure to keep you on your toes.”
    (Mizuki) “And it’ll be mine to keep you guessing.”

    The rivalry between the Friends in Speed and Boot Camp junior teams was set for the remainder of the season and it was an exciting one as a lot of racing fans were pumped up for the newest rivalry of the era. This applied very well during the Flash Series when the race came to Moa Therma where Mizuki made some of the closest and toughest passes throughout the racing league, though Michael Sanderson’s daring passes were always up for debate. Her beautiful passes were not lost on the commentators when she passed by Xiu Bai of EG-X and Daphne Summers of Triakis during the final lap at the prestigious Moa Therma. Their quotes say it all:

    (Commentator 1) “We’re on the final lap of the first race at Moa Therma. Daphne take the corner well, but Xiu is able to squeeze past her! We’re now on the Syncro Logistics Dynamo, with Xiu pulling away inch by inch. But Daphne is back on Xiu’s tail. That Anne is proving more than effective on the straights.”
    (Commentator 2) “Wait a sec, a group of ships are catching up. And one of them is closing the gap quick.”
    (Commentator 1) “You’re right, that’s Mizuki Nakajima in the AG-Systems, with Hitomi of Auricom, Scarlett of Goteki, Alqamar of Mirage, and De Gautet of Van-Uber following her! Bet you didn’t think that they were going to catch up did you?”
    (Commentator 2) “Absolutely not, three golds and a silver during the Venom Series, Mizuki means business.”
    (Commentator 1) “Daphne has caught up with Xiu and both are now competing for the front. We’re off the mag strip and we just hit the hairpin leading to the chicane series. Both are neck and neck and…Oh, my god – is Mizuki attempting to pass them both?!”
    (Commentator 2) “That girl’s crazy, with a gap THAT small, she’ll never pass them…OH MY GOD! She’s through! Mizuki Nakajima of AG-Systems is now in the lead.”
    (Commentator 1) “That was a very small window of opportunity to pass and the girl made the pass look beautiful. They’re about to exit the chicane series and enter the mag ridge…Mizuki just dropped a bomb at the exit of the chicane series.”
    (Commentator 2) “There’s nowhere for Daphne and Xiu to go as they are quickly coming up to the exit…BAM! The bomb just blew them both off to each side of the track!”
    (Commentator 1) “The others are quickly passing them both. Daphne and Xiu just fell behind and now we have Hitomi in second, Scarlett in third, Alqamar in fourth, and De Gautet in fifth. But that’s not what’s gotten our attention right now.”
    (Commentator 2) “Mizuki takes the next turn perfectly, and hits the inside speed pad, turns left and…WHOA! She pulled the nose of her ship up and pulled off a successful barrel roll!”
    (Commentator 1) “She made that transition look beautifully easy and crosses the line in first place!”
    (Commentator 2) “What a way to come from behind to take the win! Ladies and gentleman, we have our winner of our first race at Moa Therma, Mizuki Nakajima of AG-Systems!”

    As a result of the race at Moa Therma, her skills has impressed the professional pilots of the AG-racing league, even impressing Rory Pinewood of Qirex, who has gone on saying that her perfect racing lines and daring attempts to pass other competitors at the right time make her one of the pilots to look out for in the junior racing league. Even her weapons skills were more than enough to impress the Canadian as Mizuki, as well as her boyfriend Michael, have been marked as AG-Systems’ wildcard for Eliminator events. He has also said that Michael and Mizuki are the perfect pair to lead AG-Systems to victory in the first season of the JX350 racing league.

    Mizuki was also given another thorn on her side to deal with. While she was competing against Daphne Summers of Triakis, Petia Romanov of Qirex seemed to be a guy who kept sticking his nose in her business. Despite Petia’s frequent attempts to seduce her, Mizuki has told him repeatedly that her heart already belonged to Michael Sanderson, lead pilot of the Friends in Speed junior team and her boyfriend. Despite her attempts to ignore him, Petia has constantly challenged her to win her heart by attempting to beat her in a race. However, his piloting skills were extremely poor and Mizuki was able to beat Petia again and again, though she was still being annoyed by Petia so that he can win her over. This finally reached a peak when Mizuki, along with Alexis, Hitomi, and Ayaka, had just enough of him and decided to kick Petia squarely between his legs and put an end to the pointless rivalry so she can concentrate on her own worthwhile rivalry between her and Summers. This earned her and her friends the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45, hoping that she can see more of the kid’s tough side.

    Like her friends, Mizuki has made friends with the Makanian Amazons, consisting of Hyun Gim, Yin Ruan, and their leader, Scarlett Arekuruu; who put her under physically and mentally intense training to help push her skills and beauty further. She also made friends with Hafiz Nejem and the Raqisas sisters of Mirage’s Junior Team, MAGEC, helping the three pilots with their race strategies and offered advice for their piloting skills, especially to Hafiz for Eliminator events; and finally Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, who approached her for some help with his racing lines and Zone techniques. She has also made friends with two professional pilots of the racing league, particularly Buster Harding of Triakis and Rory Pinewood of Qirex; the former teaching her various martial arts skills alongside her friends and keeping her racing skills refined, and the latter inviting her to private Zone Battle sessions with ‘The Bad Boys’.

    Mizuki is also one of the members of the Miracle Eight. She, along with the other girls, became the topic of a debate to see which girl of the group was the most attractive of them all. After a week of debate, Mizuki was the most attractive of them all, with Alexis just right behind her. Some have said the photo of her pose of the GSRA when she showed off her AFS is what sparked her popularity to begin with. Many of the fans are aware that Mizuki has a deep relationship with Michael, the lead pilot of the Friends in Speed Junior Racing team of AG-Systems, and many have helped support the two as they continue their relationship.

    Their relationship was soon tested however, when Polina Petrov returned as a member of Tigron Enterprises, who started by targeting the Miracle Eight members, though she failed initially. As a result, she then turned her attention to the other teams, starting with Triakis when she injured Daphne Summers with a missile, which was quickly followed up with rockets during a race. This was only the beginning of Polina’s rampage, which led to the mass eliminations of the other teams two weeks later, the race which was lived in infamy. Mizuki was one of the few pilots who used her ship to get some of the pilots who were injured on that day to the Kyoto University Hospital – she in particular rescued Chizoba Afolayan of Assegai. Many doctors and medic pilots, including chief pilot Joes Peeters himself, thank Mizuki and the Miracle Eight for helping in a desperate time. Polina then returned to targeting the Miracle Eight, starting with Michael and Mizuki and their relationship as well as the other members of the Miracle Eight. However, thanks to the other events, Polina was unable to get her hands on them. During the racing weekends at Ubermall, Mizuki was one of the few pilots to note that Polina was using banned technology to get the upper hand. As a result, she was able to win most Eliminator events, despite the Miracle Eight’s efforts, as well as the other teams contributions. Mizuki began to investigate how the Tigron ship was indestructible and, with Alexis’ and Ayaka’s help, found out that an artificial intelligence is responsible for Tigron ‘indestructible’ ship, restoring shield energy on the Tigron ship overtime, similar to one of Auricom’s old prototype ships of the 2048 era, though the regeneration rate was much more significant. She kept this in mind during the Phantom series. And would eventually use it against Polina and Tigron after discovering a crack in the armor.

    Before the Phantom series came about, she and her friends got the other squad mates of the other junior teams together in an undisclosed location in Las Vegas, near the Amphiseum race track, to plan on destroying the ship after Alexis, Ayaka, and Scarlett were able to spot a crack in the armor and a weak point in the AI. After laying out the plans to destroy the ship, each team was able to contribute a hit or two against the Tigron ship during the Phantom Series Tournament before Michael Sanderson landed the final blow on the ship during the last race at Tech De Ra of the Phantom Series Tournament. The other junior members of their teams thanked the Miracle Eight for helping to rid the world of Tigron, especially Mizuki and the Miracle Eight since they were the ones who planned and executed the whole plan to rid of Tigron. Their actions will be remembered amongst the AG community.

    After ridding of Tigron from the JX350 league, Mizuki went on with her team and friends to compete in the final tournament of the JX350 league and win the final tournament for AG-Systems. Mizuki has become popular amongst the racing fans as being the most attractive and cutest girl of the Miracle Eight girls and has also earned the title ‘The Girl of Speed and Beauty’ for breaking some of the time trial records at Vineta K, Moa Therma, Ubermall, the Amphiseum, and Tech De Ra and currently holds the fastest laps and Time Trial runs on each track; even going as far as impressing Rachel Vega and Tara Shannon of the professional Auricom racing team when Mizuki broke their records. She and the Miracle Eight have become the most popular and best pilots of the era, and some even say that they can match or even surpass Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. Mizuki continues to deepen her relationship with Michael and both plan to marry and start a family in the future. Many wondered if this was going to affect their racing career. But as Mizuki has said herself to Float Nation who interviewed her, along with the Miracle Eight and the Makanian Amazons:

    (Mizuki) “No human, machine, or technology we have can predict the future ahead of us. Only time will tell if we can achieve our future.”

    Bio

    On February 10, 2201, during a pursuit in the city of Chicago, a criminal gang was on the run from the Chicago Police after robbing a bank when they ended up running into a civilian airbus transport and the pursuit ended with almost two thousand people who were on board killed in the horrific crash. The members of the criminal gang who survived the crash were arrested and sent to prison for robbery and killing the people on board. However, a miracle happened when the ambulances arrived and searched the wreckage of the airbus for survivors and found a girl, who miraculously survived and was saved after being rushed to a hospital. Her name is Alexis Anderson, born on December 27, 2199. She is the only sole survivor of the Chicago Airbus Accident, which left a scar just above her chest when a piece of shrapnel hit her. It wasn’t fatal, but it will left a noticeable scar for the remainder of her life.

    With her family lost during the airbus accident, she was orphaned for the next thirteen years in an orphanage for children who lost their families in Chicago and went to special schools for children like her. Alexis was special though, as she managed to get top marks in grade and middle school despite the loss of her family. She often visits her family in the cemetery every month and has been seen bringing flowers to her family’s burial site. As a result of her monthly visits, many of the cemetery personnel know her personally and have given her escorts though the cemetery as she visits her family’s burial site. Despite her loss of her family, she was a very cheerful and friendly girl who knew how to live on her own.

    Over the summer of 2211, Alexis was given an invitation to Good Smile Racing Academy, a private academy which recently opened up and will be having its very first school year on August 31st. With the support of her friends, she traveled to Japan to attend GSRA in Tokyo, Japan. While her knowledge got her though grade and middle school with ease, the academy was a completely different story, and with higher standard questions and tests, Alexis was able to get by with at least seventy six percent of the questions correct. This was no easy feat for her and she made it through the first part of the initial evaluation, though she knew that it will only get tougher from this point forward. However, she went through many life changing moments that will change her forever. During her lunch break before the opening ceremony of the school and the school year, she met with two people that became her friends. One was Eric Patterson, an American like her with a skill of an artist who was invited to be a student at the academy. Another was Sora Akiyama, a shy Japanese student. Alexis took interest in Sora, seeing that he was the complete opposite of her, a boy who had little to no friends and was very shy and she wanted to help him open up so that he can make more friends. The three were together when a set of bullies led by Polina Petrov, a student at the academy as well who was the biggest bully of the academy. As they were surrounded, a voice called them out and the bullies retreated. The voice belonged to a boy by the name of Michael Sanderson, who was also with four other friends, Johnathan Hale, Mizuki Nakajima, Hitomi Yamaguchi, and Ayaka Hamasaki. The three tagged along with them and they became close friends with each other. During the second part of the initial evaluation, she was locked into the simulator along with her friends when a lightning bolt struck the school building they were in. For the next two hours, the simulator was still active and she and her friends were stuck in the virtual world. However, when the power returned, the simulator was finished. The eight students were okay when they were removed from the simulator. However, their results astonished the instructors. Within two hours from the start of the second evaluation to the end of it, the eight have somehow become a lot smarter, stronger, faster, and a lot more endurable in just two hours and the results from their bio readings and the second evaluation showed. Not even the doctors can figure out how it happened and the mystery remained unsolved to this day.

    From that point on, Alexis was blessed with massive knowledge in every aspect and she was stronger, more endurable, and faster than almost everyone else in the school, aside from her friends of course who were also affected by the same event. As a result, she became one of the top students of the school alongside her friends Michael, Mizuki, Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, Ayaka, and Sora. A whole new world opened up to her as she can do whatever she wanted. She gained the highest marks in her education with her friends during her time at GSRA was one of the most physical student of the academy. She quickly learned many miscellaneous stuff as well from speaking multiple languages, singing, and even martial arts during her spare time with her friends. She was also responsible for some of the design parts of the Adaptive Flight Suits made by Mizuki Nakajima, one of the top students at GSRA and one of Alexis’ best and closest friends. When they graduated from the Good Smile Racing Academy Alexis, along with Sora, Michael, Mizuki, and Jessica Caluroso - another close friend she knew at the academy, were given a ride to the main AG-Systems facility in Tokyo, Japan, courtesy of Sakura Tanaku, the team principle of AG-Systems. When she was first introduced to AG-Systems, along with Sora, Jessica, Mizuki, and Michael, she was an oddball to the team, having no racing history in their lifetime. However, after many practice sessions with AG-Systems’ junior racing team, ‘Friends in Speed’, the four students fit right in. Their performance during practice even left a lot of good impressions with the professional members of the racing team, Katsu, Thierry, and Sofia. The professional members then set her as a secondary pilot for the junior racing team after a five way race between Michael, Mizuki, Aleixis, Sora, and Jessica, though Michael Sanderson did want the other junior members to race in order to keep their skills refined and give each member a shot at the podium.

    As Alexis would be in Japan for most of her life, she made contact with one of her childhood friends back in America and she asked her to visit her parent’s burial site and donate flowers whenever she had free time. To this day, Alexis lives with Sora, Michael, and Mizuki in an apartment space that Michael’s and Mizuki’s parents bought with their money and are often seen together. Outside and during practice, she is known for her singing as she still practices singing from time to time as she practices on the track. She also practice martial arts with Michael, Mizuki, and Sora. Many wonder why they needed self-defense techniques for racing, but Michael has said that he was taught by Buster Harding, former AG-racer and now world famous body builder, teaching the others the same techniques that Buster taught him. The team was becoming its own over the summer. During practice, she was often seeing practicing with Michael, Mizuki, Sora, and Jessica on learning each tracks optimal racing lines and possible shortcuts, as well as helping Michael and Sora with engineering regarding tuning the FX350/400 craft, which were going to be used for the JX350 league, to optimize it for each track.

    When the JX350 began, she got her game face on and got off to a good start like her friends, scoring podium finishes and a couple of gold medals to boot during the first weeks of the season. A great start to the season alongside her team. Unlike some of the other members of some of the junior teams, Alexis was one of the friendliest girls on the circuit and never really made any rivals over the course of the JX350 season, with the exception of Petia Romanov of Qirex’s Quantax Dynamics, who harassed her until she gave him a kick so hard, it discouraged him not to touch her or any of the other girls anymore, which earned the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45. . Her weapons skills were up to speed as well, with some very interesting missile, rockets, cannon, quake, and plasma bot hits from long range despite the lack of some elimination, though it was not to say that she didn’t scored eliminations during the Eliminator events. One of her most notable traits was her singing during and after races. Many of the fans enjoyed her singing as she piloted her craft through weapons fire and other craft. Many fans became used to her singing and some even became fans of her singing talent. The most notable moment for the fans is when the Raqisas sisters, or the Sand Dancers of MAGEC, Mirage’s junior racing team, were seen dancing along with Alexis’ singing after a race during the Flash Series. The Sand Dancers elegant dancing were a perfect match with Alexis’ ability to sing and the three have been frequently seen together when Alexis was singing. Even Hafiz Nejem of the same team enjoyed the time the Raqisas sisters were having. As a result, Alexis was found singing more often and many people began to enjoy it. Many fans even requested Alexis to sing some of Hatsune Miku’s songs during races, who also sang at the season’s opening ceremonies. Alexis also made friends with the Makanian Amazons of Goteki 35, Goteki 45’s junior team, who also happened to be fond of her singing talent as well and put her through intense and tough physical training and she became a great pilot along with the Miracle Eight. However, not everyone enjoyed her singing.

    Amongst the many people who enjoyed her singing, only one notable person grew a distaste for Alexis’ talent for singing and racing and stuck out like a sore thumb. Balawyn Samirsdøttir, second pilot for the professional Qirex racing team, was annoyed of Alexis’ singing throughout the course of the JX350 league, though it never reached the peak where her irritation went out of her control. She kept her cool the entire time and let her displeasure of Alexis slowly evaporate from her mind. After all, she did the same when she broke Xavier’s record at Vineta K Reverse while singing a classic metal song during the entire session almost provoking him, not to mention how many people who would be angered and outraged at her by such an act. Some of the racing fans who took note suspected a rivalry was going to be formed between her and Alexis, but it never really came to it. Rory had a private conversation with her when he found her irritated after one of the events Alexis completed during the Virtual series and walked away during Alexis’ singing to a group of people who were interested:

    (Rory) “You alright?”
    (Balawyn) *takes a deep breath before letting out a deep sigh* “Yeah, I’m good.”
    (Rory) “You didn’t look like it when you were around her.”
    (Balawyn) “Yeah, I was, really irritated. I felt like I was going to hit her sooner or later.”
    (Rory) “I know what you’re thinking, but that’s just her nature. There are many fans who like her talent. You just need to keep it from getting to you.”
    (Balawyn) “I know.” *sighs “It’s just…”
    (Rory) “Just what?”
    (Balawyn) “…It would seem that I have reaped what I sow.”

    Much like Mizuki, Hitomi, and Ayaka, she was also being flirted with by Petia Romanov of Qirex. The guy was known for harassing the girls from the other teams and Alexis was not exempt from this. At one given point, Petia made a remark about Alexis’ size and her body. Though Alexis initially ignored this, Petia continued to harass her to the point where he started a rivalry between each of the girls in the racing league, including Alexis. However, his piloting skills were very below average and he had a difficult time in beating some of the girls, particularly the girls of the Miracle Eight. After Petia made one too many remarks about the girls as well as attempts to sexually harass her and the others, Alexis, along with Mizuki, Hitomi, and Ayaka, gave him the boot between the legs to end his attempts to bother them for good. Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45 hopes that she can see that side of the girls again a bit more frequently. Alexis has also made friends with Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber and both have been seen practicing with each other along with her friends to help him hone his skills.

    Ayaka has also made friends outside the junior leagues. Buster Harding of Triakis gave the young girl martial arts lessons in case anyone like Petia Romanov came along again to harass her, pushing her hard as he did with her friends. He has said that her skills are on par with her friends and she can defend herself if needed. Another friend she made was an oddball, Sekhar Sahib of Harimau International. While the two teams of AG-Systems and Harimau were stern rivals, the two pilots have been sharing advice on how to tackle the Zone track of Pro Tozo, after he saw the girl navigate the track with such finesse that even he took interest in the girl and both have been training with each other to master the mystical Zone track. He has even asked if Auricom are as scary as they say after his elimination from one of the former pilots of the team, Torogu Ukantu, in which he has grew a deep-seated fear of them. Alexis told him that some of them are not as bad as he thinks when she referred him to her friends who were on the team. Many racing fans have said the two have got along well with each other.

    Alexis is also one of the members of the Miracle Eight, a group of attractive and cute boys and girls who pull off some of the most difficult moves in the AG-racing leagues and sometimes even made comebacks from insurmountable odds. Of all of the girls in the group Alexis was the second most cutest of the girls of the group when the fans ran a voting contest to see who is the cutest and most attractive of them all, with Mizuki taking the title, and is also one of the more talented girl thanks to her ability to sing. Alexis was also the girlfriend of Sora Akiyama, who is on the same team as her. She has admitted that it was his ‘cute androgynous body’ that attracted her to him and both of them have been in love with each other since.

    Alexis continued to sing to her hearts content until Polina Petrov, who was now a part of Tigron Enterprises, showed up during the Rapier series and caused the injury to many of the competitors on the track. The Miracle Eight, including Alexis, was able fire up many of their team’s ships to get some of the injured competitors to the Kyoto Hospital after the ‘Race of Infamy’ in Metropia. It was said that all of the competitors who were injured were saved thanks to their efforts. As Joes Peeters said in his own words regarding the Miracle Eight’s intervention, “We wouldn’t be able to save them all if it weren’t for them. I would personally like to extend my greatest gratitude to the Miracle Eight for their valiant efforts to get the injured to the hospital.” It was only the beginning of Polina’s rampage as she began to target the Miracle Eight on the track, including Alexis Anderson. When she failed to injure them, Polina then began to target them verbally by using misinformation against them, however, the racing fans continued to boo against Polina, knowing her words were false. This eventually resorted in Polina using weapons fire against the spectators, though with the Entertainment Confinement Systems Cage active, most of the weapons were unable to harm the fans, most of them. During the Rapier Series tournament at Metropia, Polina used a cannon to target the spectators and a cannon shot breached the ECS, resulting in some of the spectators injured as a result, though Joes Peeters was on site with the medics and a working ambulance shuttle to save the injured spectators who were bleeding out as a result of the cannon fire shrapnel. Alexis, despite being a pacifist for most of the season, knew that Polina has gone too far. She began to use the weapons on Polina to erase her ship from existence. Ayaka and Scarlett also teamed up with Alexis to take on Polina and her indestructible ship. It was then that they discovered a crack in Polina’s ship during the Rapier Series Tournament. The three pilots remembered its location so that they can use it against Polina and take her out of the picture for good.

    Before the Phantom series began, Alexis, with the help of Ayaka, was able to identify the locations of the structural weakness in the Tigron ship and when the Miracle Eight was able to gather the other members of the junior teams together, they were able to plan out a way to destroy the TIgron ship during the Phantom Series Tournament. When the tournament came about and with the surprising support of Peeters and Samirsdøttir, Alexis was able to get a number of hits off of the Tigron ship to damage it to the point where nobody would be able to see it, not even the Tigron engineers. When the final race of the tournament came about, the Miracle Eight executed the plan along with the help of the other junior teams and destroyed the Tigron ship. Alexis, along with the other members of the Miracle Eight, were given the title the ‘Heroes of AG-Racing’ for saving many of the injured competitors back at Metropia and destroying the Tigron craft, forcing the team to drop out of the JX350 league for good. Alexis was relieved when word of Tigorn’s and the BSV’s dismantlement got to her. She would go on to finish the season along with her team and friends, resuming her singing during the final tournament, which she was so well-known for.

    Much like her friends, she was one of the top pilots of the JX350 racing league, matching even Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. Her talent was well-noted across the globe and Alexis gained many fans across the world, as well as a large amounts of money from her paychecks via sponsors. Alexis still visits her hometown of Chicago from time to time to see her friends there as well as her late family. As a result of her reputation across the globe, Chicago has welcomed her home with open arms when she visited the city before the Phantom series and before the last two races of the final tournament of the JX350 league, giving her the title ‘The Chicago Girl’. She continues to deepen her relationship with her boyfriend from Japan, Sora Akiyama, who is on the same team as her. And much like Michael and Mizuki, the two plan to marry and start a family. Alexis has said she always wanted to have a family and be with the boy of her dreams and she looks to fulfill that dream, as well as becoming one of the greatest pilots of AG-racing in history.

    Bio

    In AG-racing, weapons have become a popular part of the sport despite their initial controversial showing in the F5000. There have been a number of pacifists and aggressive race pilots on the grid throughout the racing sport’s history. From pacifist Wolfgang Van-Uber, who went on to start his own racing team Van-Uber Racing Developments, to some of the aggressive pilots today, such as Xavier Chaffin and sometimes Vincent Stephenson of Triakis Industries. However, it’s good to balance both aggression and racing skill together in order to win races and one junior pilot knew this well, and despite his reserved and timid nature, he was able to secure podium finishes and even win races. Sora Akiyama is the junior pilot of AG-Systems, who was able to balance both natures of racing despite his own timid nature, who is also one of the more attractive boys of the Miracle Eight along with Michael Sanderson from the same team.

    Sora was born in the city of Kawasaki in Japan, just southwest of the country’s capital, Tokyo. As the only son of a lower class family, Sora managed to get by on his own when his mother and father passed away after they were involved in an accident when they were arguing over who should take care of their only son instead of being concerned for their own safety. He was soon orphaned and was given special care by the orphanage and lived out his childhood quietly. While at the orphanage, he did a lot of work from cooking to house cleaning for the kids and helped out the employees there as well. He was also given a lot of education during his time at the orphanage. Despite his timid nature, he has made friends with many of the employees there.

    A notable feature about Sora was his body. Despite taking part in many physical activities, his body didn’t gain any muscle mass whatsoever. After many physical examinations, it was clear that Sora wasn’t gaining any muscle mass. The cause of why this was the case remains unknown. As a result, Sora was unable to gain any muscle mass and inherited his androgynous body. However, he was still able to participate in many physical activities, though many doctors have questioned if Sora can participate in many of the physical sports today.

    On August of 2211, Sora received an invitation from the Good Smile Racing Academy in Tokyo after he show great marks in his school. He was a bit nervous at first since he didn’t have many friends around his age, but one of his teachers recommended him to the school so that he can make some friends there and help him further his studies. He then accepted the invitation and traveled to Japan’s capital to attend the academy. Unlike the special schools he went to, the academy was filled with students from various countries around the world who also received the invitation to the academy as well. Many different backgrounds and ethnicities filled the international academy. The academy also held very high standards than the normal school, though Sora was able to pass the initial evaluation when he took it with the other potential students of the academy, albeit he barely passed with a seventy percent flat grade. Sora even questioned if he even had potential to stay in the academy. He then began to look around for some friends in the academy and soon ran into two students from America. Alexis Anderson and Eric Patterson were the two students Sora came across and despite his timid nature, he was able to make friends with them. Before they could go to the opening ceremonies however, they were quickly surrounded by bullies of the academy who were recently recruited by Polina Petrov, the leader of the bullies. However, they were quickly scattered when someone stepped in. That person who took care of the bullies was Michael Sanderson, another student at the academy along with his childhood friend, Johnathan Hale. Sora was very timid of the new students that were around him, but with the help of Michael, he was able to muster up as much courage as he could and stay with the other seven students. He soon found out that he’ll be around them for most of his life.

    During the second part of the evaluation, Sora and his friends were locked into the simulator after a lightning bolt struck the building. For the next two hours, they remained in the simulator until it was finished. They were soon pulled from the simulator and moved to the infirmary. The doctors soon discover that while the eight students were okay, something changed about the eight of them. Their bio readings were completely off the charts and their evaluation results showed it clearly as day. Their results were so extraordinary that nobody was able to top it to this day. While Sora’s body didn’t show the results of the bio readings, his results did. His strength, endurance, dexterity, memory, knowledge, and responses were amplified by a great amount that nobody knows how Sora went from being unfit for AG-racing to being one of the most athletic people in the world despite his androgynous looks. As a result, he was able to pass every physical and academic exams with ease.

    While Sora’s androgynous body was questioned from time to time by some of the doctors, others saw him as one of the cutest looking boys of the academy, alongside with Michael Sanderson. While Sora was nervous about his increasing popularity amongst the students, he was having fun and a smile surfaced on his face for the first time in a while. With Alexis Anderson as his girlfriend, someone who is helping him with his life, Sora’s began to live his life to his fullest. He even took part in the invention festival with his friends, helping Michael, Eric, and Ayaka create AG-hover boards. He even aced the toughest physical activities that Buster Harding, body builder and AG-racer of Triakis, who came over to the academy and made a lot of demanding physical activities for the students, put before Sora.

    Sora was truly an oddball, but in a very good way. He soon graduated with top honors and marks with his friends and went on to race for AG-Systems alongside with Michael Sanderson, Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, and Jessica Caluroso. He was soon presented to the AG-Systems team and many raised a couple of eyebrows, questioning how an unfit person like Sora managed to get into AG-racing. However, he was able to debunk the naysayers during practice, pulling off many perfectly timed barrel rolls and perfect laps with ease, not to mention his racing lines were perfect. Appearance didn’t play a part in determining if he could be flight capable or not. Sora was given the secondary pilot status for the junior racing league, the JX350, alongside with Alexis and Jessica, though he took part in the racing league.

    During the JX350 racing league, Sora took part in mostly solo events; Time Trials, Zone, and Detonator in particular. Soon however, he was placed in races with other contenders and many expect him to have issues winning races due to his timid nature. But this didn’t seem to be the case. Sora hardly used weapons at first; only using the Turbo, Shield, and Autopilot pickups when he got one, sometimes using Mines and Bombs; the rest he’d absorbed. Sora has also taken a page out of Assegai’s second pilot Nyoko Kassan’s playbook and has used the other ships as shields to prevent weapons from damaging his own ship, particularly Triakis and Qirex; something that Nyoko himself is envious about. Despite being a pacifist for the most part, Sora was soon challenged by Petia Romanov of Qirex when he challenged Sora for his girl, Alexis Anderson, of the same team. A lot of racing fans expected Sora to have problems with Petia when this happened, but Sora stepped up his game and was able to beat him in every event he took part in; even in tournament races, where he used Petia as a shield or even using weapons on him. Sora made Petia bad in front of the public and when he attempted to get physical with the girls, Sora stepped in and intervened, something that surprised a lot of people given his timid nature. Soon the rivalry between the two ended with the girls of the junior teams of AG-Systems and Auricom gave Petia a boot between the legs, which earned the kids the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45, who wanted the kids to show that they weren’t going to take it lying down.

    Sora has made many friends on the track. The Mirage junior squad, MAGEC, quickly became friends after the Raqisas sisters, as well as Hafiz Nejem, flew alongside him during training. The Makanian Amazons of Goteki 35, Goteki’s junior team, made friends with Sora and decided to give him and his friends’ special training. Much like his friends, Sora underwent training from the Makanian Amazons, consisting of Scarlett Arekuruu, Yin Ruan, and Hyun Gim, on their home island near Makana. Just like his friends, he went through some of the most physically and mentally intense training he has ever done. Scarlett in particular gave him and Michael some special training and took special care of the two boys. Nobody knows what Scarlett did to the two boys, but whatever the two boys went through, their results were clear for many of the racing fans to see.

    The two boys were some of the most attractive and cutest boys on the racing circuit and many girls have admitted that they would fall for them at first sight. Sora is also a member of the Miracle Eight, a group of attractive children consisting of four boys and girls who pull off some of the most impossible feats in racing and even have made comebacks in insurmountable odds. Sora was given runner-up, just behind Michael Sanderson for being one of the cutest boys of the four after many racing fans voted on who is the most attractive boy of the Miracle Eight. The couples of the Miracle Eight were like matches made in heaven. Michael with Mizuki, Johnathan with Hitomi, Sora with Alexis, and Eric with Ayaka. The four couples were given the title the “Best Couples of the Century”, with Sora and Alexis being the runner-up for being the cutest couple just behind Michael and Mizuki.

    Of course, this was not to last forever. During the Rapier Series of the JX350, the Miracle Eight got a nasty surprise when their biggest rival from their academy showed up who is now a pilot for Tigron Enterprises, Polina Petrov. Thankfully for him, he was still taking part in solo events for the most part when she returned and the fact that she isn’t a good pilot to begin with meant that he was triumphing over her during those events. However, it was in weapon events like races and Eliminators that made her a serious threat. When the race of infamy came about after an EMP went off, Sora was one of the few pilots to fire up his ship and rescue one of the injured pilots, Kulap Metharom of Harimau. He was able to get her to the hospital safely and she thanked him when she was carted away to the hospital ward when they got there. The team principle of Harimau, Manjula Vamatharen, thanked Sora for helping their pilot get to the hospital in a desperate moment. Still, with Tigron on the track, more problems soon followed.

    With Polina causing a lot of damage on and off the track, many teams were weary of going after her. It was soon that she started to provoke some of the other pilots on the grid that got the other teams’ attention. She soon targeted the Miracle Eight and called Sora ‘nothing but a coward’. While he has been taking part in mainly solo events, he soon found himself facing off against Polina herself during Zone Battle, Eliminator, and Race events. Some of the engineers of the Japanese team saw the fire in Sora’s eyes that he wanted to take a piece of her; even Michael Sanderson, lead pilot of the junior team, knew that Sora wanted to race against her and was more than happy to let him race, no matter how dangerous it was. He was now building up courage to race with others and soon found himself darting around the competitors to get to Polina and give her a plasma bolt or two. However, thanks to the indestructible Tigron Bull, Polina found ways to bully her way to the front. It didn’t stop Sora from at least getting hits off of her, which astonished the crowd and contributed to finding a crack within the ship’s hull. As a result, he was beginning to race with others more often and he even helped the Miracle Eight plan out a way to destroy the Tigron ship when they met with the other junior pilots of the other teams.

    Sora was responsible for some of the hardest hits on Polina ship during the Phantom Series. While he wasn’t able to beat Polina on some occasions due to her getting lucky and her ship able to regenerate lost shield energy overtime due to illegal technology, he was able to land eight plasma bolt hits on her ship, the most weapon hits with the plasma in AG-racing history, which gave the other junior members of their team’s motivation to attempt to eliminate her. It wasn’t until the Phantom Tournament of the series however, when Polina was finally eliminated from the race and banned permanently from the sports and other kinds as well, along with Tigron and the BSV, who were later dismantled. While Michael Sanderson took the credit in destroying the ship, who was also congratulated by everyone around him – even Rory Pinewood of Qirex gave him credit where it was due, Sora was given the credit of dealing the most damage to the Tigron ship that even Kulap of Harimau, Daphne Summers of Triakis, and Rory gave him a good clap on the back in contributing the most when his help was needed. He went on with his team and friends to compete in the Season Finale of the JX350 league and take the first JX350 cup with his team.

    Sora has drastically changed for the better throughout the first JX350 racing season. While he can still sometimes be reserved and timid, he has become a courageous pilot who would do anything for his friends and his team, making Sora the most ‘Improved Pilot’ of the league’s first season. His flying skills have even surpassed some of the professional racing pilots of the era and many race analysts and experts have said that he can match the skills and caliber of Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. To this day, Sora continues his relationship with his girlfriend, Alexis Anderson, and both plan to marry sometime in the future. He continues to improve himself and his team for the next season and many will soon see him as one of the greatest AG-pilots of the era.

    Bio
    Thierry Caluroso is AG-Systems’ prodigy and plans to take Katsu Sasaki’s place as lead pilot once he retires. Thierry has become the pilot to look out for when he takes lead pilot status for the team and his skills on the track showed, when he astonished everyone with his lap times and the barrel rolls he pulled off. He is the next big thing and looks to match or even surpass Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. However, if there is one person that can get close to his caliber or even match his skills, it would be a Frenchwoman, or girl for that matter. That girl is Jessica Caluroso, a young French girl who races for AG-Systems’ junior team ‘Friends in Speed’ and is the younger sister of Thierry himself.

    Jessica was born in Bordeaux, three years after her brother, Thierry, was born. Like her brother, she took interest in AG-racing at a young age and both were soon seen flinging AG-karts around the tracks in Bordeaux as best they could. Unlike her brother however, Jessica was slow to learn, but soon was able to hang with him. Both brother and sister caught the attention of FEISAR and were offered a place in FEISAR Study. Both pilots soon became regular sightings as reserve pilots at race weekends, the Caluroso duo often impressed in practice sessions but were always sidelined for the more popular Italian in the team, Ezio Di’Rosso. They became close friends with a lot of the paddock during this period, most notably Vincent Stephenson of Triakis whenever he came to the tracks for testing purposes. Thierry’s patience with FEISAR only lasted for a short while though before he and his sister set out to find a place to fly at the same time as his friend did.

    The two soon found a team to fly for when they were undergoing experimentation, that team was AG-Systems. However, the team had almost all of their race seats full when both came to apply for a seat. As a result, only Thierry was able to gain the final race seat, leaving Jessica on the sidelines for much of the FX300 to FX400 leagues. However, during this time Thierry learns about a new academy opening up in Japan, which was near the main facility of AG-Systems. When they got an invitation to attend the Good Smile Racing Academy, Thierry sent her sister there off the bat so that she can refine her skills while he was racing for AG-Systems during the last FX400 season. When Jessica got there, she took the first part of the initial evaluation and score a ninety percent, despite the school’s high standards.

    While Jessica was there, a valuable possession of hers was stolen from someone when she was eating lunch. When she found out who stole it, she ended up eavesdropping on a conversation where a particular bully was sent by the leader of the group of bullies to steal valuables in an attempt to recruit more members. She then followed the bully to their leader, Polina Petrov, who was causing chaos among the school. After discovering the leader and her attempts to recruit more members for her growing influence, she soon hatched a plan of her own to get her pendant back – which included a photo of her and her brother, Thierry. She stepped forward and Polina soon found the pendant’s owner who was brave enough to stand before her and said:

    (Polina) “If you want your precious pendant back, you’ll have to join me on my conquest in taking over the academy.”

    Jessica accepted the offer and began working in Polina’s shadow while secretly finding a way to get her pendant back and find out how many valuables were stolen. She found out through another student that many valuables were stolen just to recruit others, only to not give them back to their respective owners. Jessica then began to look around for any students who were willingly to go against Polina and her tyranny. She soon found that eight students were able to evade Polina’s first attempt to rob them, only to be surrounded by her gang for a second time. When the head director of the academy stepped in and broke up the gang, Jessica made contact with one of the students who was about to be robbed. She then explained the situation to him and she gave him the information on what was going on and what they needed to do in order for Polina to lose her grip on the academy. The boy that introduced himself to her was Michael Sanderson, an American student, and they soon began to work together with his friends.

    Jessica was one of the few students to break Polina’s record on the get go when the second evaluation came about, though the results weren’t displayed until the end of the evaluation and eight other students would do better than her. During the second evaluation, Jessica met another student at the academy before the evaluation and both girls took it together. The student in question is Setsuko Tanaka, a Japanese student who is also a test pilot for Auricom and AG-Systems. As both passed the evaluation with flying colors, both girls became friends and began to work with each other to graduate from the academy. Both girls, along with Michael and his friends soon became the top students of the academy.

    As she enjoyed the perks of being one of the top students in the academy, Jessica continued to monitor Polina’s activities while working with Michael and his friends to help them loosen Polina’s grip on the school by breaking all of Polina’s race records of the school. While she didn’t have the style of her eight friends, she did have the skills of an AG-racer and showed it to the academy during race days on the track that surrounded the school, astonishing everyone around her as she was one of the two students alongside Setsuko to keep up with Michael and his friends, who were only using their hover boards and their Adaptive Flight Suits, made by Mizuki Nakajima, a close friend of hers. Eventually, Polina lost her grip on the academy and Jessica was able to get her family pendant back from Polina. She then helped Michael and his friends get their stuff back from the Bulgarian student before her expulsion from the school. She then went on to graduate from the school in 2214 with excellent marks and top honors.

    Around the same time, AG-Systems’ and Auricom’s team principle, Sakura Tanaku and Jessie Fairbank, were at the school to pick out the top ten students of the academy to race for their junior teams. Sakura, after seeing her brother Thierry race with such finesse for AG-Systems at such a young age, chose Jessica for her team along with Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora. She would be glad that brother and sister would be together on the same team. When the kids got there, Sakura made a surprise announcement and presented the five pilots of the ‘Friends in Speed’ junior team. With Jessica as one of their pilots, Thierry was impressed to see his sister improve within three years of being apart and hopes that she can help the team take the first JX350 league.

    When the JX350 league came about, Jessica showed off her prowess to everyone. She was able to score a number of top finishes in the JX350 league in every race she took part in. She wasn’t exactly like her brother, but she was close enough to make her noticeable by the crowd and the fans. Thierry continued to spectate the JX350 league that her sister was taking part in while he was participating in the FX500 league that was going on alongside the JX350 league, monitoring her progress. At the same time, she has made many friends in the racing league including the Makanian Amazons, the MAGEC junior team of Mirage, Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, as well as Vincent Stephenson and Buster Harding of Triakis, who are friends with her brother. During the Virtual Series, Thierry wanted to train Jessica personally and run tests on AG-Systems’ newest line of craft that were being developed and did not take part in the Virtual series. However, Jessica was able to fly some of AG-Systems’ newest craft and experienced them before anyone else did and also did some tuning on some of the current craft including the FX500 fleet of ships in AG-Systems’ main facility.

    Jessica, her friends, and AG-Systems soon got a nasty surprise when Tigron return to the grid for the Rapier Series. Jessica herself was a lot more surprised when she saw a familiar face piloting the Bull ship. Polina Petrov, rouge student of the academy she went to who underwent some changes. Jessica kept a close eye on the newly changed girl whilst keeping her attention on the track, hoping that Polina wouldn’t take her aggression out on the other competitors on the track. However, her worst fears came true when Polina eliminated the other competitors during the first race of the week on Metropia Reverse, which was dubbed the ‘Race of Infamy’. Undaunted however, Jessica was one of the few pilots to help get the Netika Ambulance Shuttles back up and running when they were disabled by the EMP emitted from Polina’s Bull ship. It was thanks to her that many civilians who were caught in the blast were saved and even Joes Peteers, chief ambulance pilot and lead pilot for Assegai, admitted that she and the Miracle Eight were able to pitch in and save a lot of people on that day. However, it became clear that Polina wanted revenge for what the Miracle Eight, Jessica, and her friend Setsuko ‘did’ to her back at the academy a few years ago. Polina branded Jessica as a ‘traitor’ to her cause. When Thierry asked her what Polina was talking about, she explained what Polina did back at the academy and she got friends together to help her. Thierry believed every word she said and wanted her to keep an eye on Polina.

    On the flipside, her friends were enjoying success. The Miracle Eight consisting of Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, Sora, Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Ayaka were becoming very popular globally and have said that the friends they made, including Jessica, gave them the support when it was needed. Hafiz Nejem of MAGEC won his first gold at Modesto Heights and Alqamar and Alshshams Raqisas of the same team won their first gold medals in a race in Ubermall and a Time Trail run in Metropa respectively. Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber won his first gold medal of the season at Ubermall a week after Alqamar won hers and Jessica and her friends helped each of them celebrate the occasion. However, Polina began to overshadow their success, causing a lot of damage in the JX350 league. She soon discover a weakness in Tigron’s Bull ship and was able to get as much data as possible on the crack in the hull of the ship, which was then transmitted to Ayaka Hamasaki of Auricom when she was looking for information on how to destroy the so-called invincible ship. When the racing league came to Tech De Ra, the Bull ship was destroyed with the help of Jessica when she was able to monitor the ship’s status and sent data to each pilot who were competing in the last race of the tournament in the Phantom series to aid them in the destruction of the ship. Many of the pilots have said that Tigron would’ve caused a lot more damage if it weren’t for Jessica’s help.

    While Jessica didn’t take part in the season finale tournament of the first JX350 racing league, she did help her team with the tuning of the AGS-400 to help her friends secure the JX350 cup along with Auricom. Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora have said Jessica has become their best friend and she continues to help them whenever she could. Jessica might not have the popularity of her friends, but she has the skills of her friends and looks to take in the next JX350 season. The sister of Thierry Caluroso, the prodigy of AG-Systems, many analysts see her taking his place one he retires from racing. Only time will tell if this is the case, but Jessica’s future is bright and she plans to continue her racing career with her friends as long as can.

    Bio

    Being a team player always has it merits. Whenever it is getting a few compliments or even attention from the public, being a supporter can help anyone’s reputation no matter what role they play in the world today. This is especially important in Anti-Gravity racing; whatever it is setting up race strategies or pilot briefings, it is always good to play the support role. One pilot in the JX350 Junior Racing League took this to heart and while he scored the least gold medals and the most silver medal amongst his friends, he became popular alongside his friends and fans thanks to his support. He is known as Johnathan Hale, the lead pilot for Auricom’s junior racing team, Auricom Academy; as well as a member of the Miracle Eight and one of the few members of Auricom to change the team forever.

    Johnathan Hale was born in a small town near Los Angeles, California, much like Michael Sanderson. Like Michael, he was born in a busy family, who didn’t have much time to take care of Johnathan. His mother and father were engineers for Auricom Research Industries, a brand who started as a racing team and has made racing ships as well as making commercial projects such as private sport ships and other technologies today. As the family continued to work at Auricom, they were searching for a babysitter to take care of their only son while they were working on longer than normal shifts as they were in the higher positions of the company. Eventually though, they found a very suitable babysitter to take care of Johnathan Hale, Buster Harding, who would take care of Johnathan and his childhood friend, Michael Sanderson.

    Buster Harding is an AG-racer who is a part of Triakis. During his time as an AG-Racer, he became a body builder who privately helped his clients to lose weight, live a healthy lifestyle, and tone their bodies. He has become famous around the world and has worked with many different clients. However, his next two would be the most unique of them all. As Michael was under the care of Buster, he was also looking for a suitable partner to Michael. When Johnathan’s family was looking for someone to take care of their son, they took note of Buster Harding, who has a history with Auricom. Buster would be glad to have their son under his care and they even paid him to take care of him. As the family continued to work at Auricom, Buster would go on to take care of Johnathan and Michael during their childhood. The three traveled around the world as Buster put Johnathan and Michael through some of the toughest workouts and set some of the most extreme goals for the two. As well as going through Buster’s hellish workouts, the two learned how to speak the many languages of each country as they traveled around the world with Buster.

    When the three returned to the US after six years of traveling around the world with Buster Harding, Johnathan and Michael had the body and mind of an Olympian, they had the age of young boys. During their middle school years, Johnathan was searching for the right girl of his dreams. Despite looking with Michael, they were unable to find one during their time at middle school. Johnathan also had a habit of being egocentric when it came to girls and sometimes ended up competing with Michael in friendly no bets competitions to see who came out on top from time to time. Though Johnathan has won from time to time, Michael was able to come out on top of Johnathan on a number of occasions, some of their competitions even ended up in ties. At the end of the day, the two were having fun. The two went on to graduate from middle schools with top marks and high honors in their classes. Their success in middle school got the attention of some of the private academies around the world, particularly, the Good Smile Racing Academy, which recently opened in 2214 and the school sent out invites to some of the top students in the world who were interested in AG-Racing. As the two returned to the US with Buster, they were watching some of the professional AG-racing that took place around the world as they traveled and sometimes stopped by some of the racing circuits to see some races. The two were interested in racing as Buster took them to more and more races. He, along with Michael, accepted the invitation and with the help of Buster Harding, the two went to the academy.

    The academy was built to help students prepare themselves for the AG-Racing Sport as well as build their knowledge on the AG-Technology seen around the world today. However, the school had higher than normal standards during the initial evaluation on August 31st 2211 and passed with a ninety percent on his test. The two were smarter than the normal student though it proved that it will be difficult to pass the classes without some extra close friends. However, the second part of the evaluation would change all of that. As soon the second part of the evaluation began, which was set in a simulator, he along with Michael and some of the new friends they made were locked into the simulator and they were in a coma for a good couple of hours. Shortly after though, they awaken from the coma to find that their bio readings were completely off the charts. Johnathan and his friends would go on to ace every exam with ease. He even did a test with Michael to see of their off the charts bio readings were true in their private gym of the mansion they received at the academy. After thinking it was a joke, the two realized that they and the others were completely superhuman after they tested their strength on a boxing dummy, though from other peoples’ point of view they were completely normal human beings.

    Much like in grade school, Johnathan and Michael always found a way to compete with each other, though he had some new competition to keep in mind now that his new friends, Eric and Sora, were competing with him. Johnathan however, enjoyed the competition. All he wanted to do was to have fun with his friends, relax, and let the days go by. It was not to last forever though. After they graduated from the Good Smile Racing Academy, he was set to go with Jessie Fairbank, the team principle of Auricom Research Industries, along with his Japanese girlfriend from the north, Hitomi Yamaguchi, and his three friends, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko to the main HQ of Auricom to get ready for the JX junior racing league that was to start in 2215. While he won’t be seeing them for a while, Johnathan knew in his mind that he’ll eventually meet them again. The five made their way to America, with Johnathan and Eric returning to the country once again.

    Once they got to the main Auricom HQ in America, Jessie gave the five the tour of the main HQ before assigning them to the Auricom Academy junior racing team for training including racing in the Auricom ships, learning the regulations, and rules of each race event that will happen in the JX350 league. Unlike most trainees in Auricom, the five stood out as they were the main focus of many of the pilots there since they came from the recently opened school of the GSRA. The five soon flew the ACM-8K Auricom racing ship and as soon as they began turning with it, they realized that the ship was a lot heavier than they initially thought. Unlike AG-Systems, which had the acceleration and handling of a light ship, and FEISAR, which was all about the corning despite a low top speed, Auricom’s ships were the opposite. While it had high speed and shielding, the thrusters and, more importantly, the ship’s ability to turn were a serious problem. Johnathan knew that Auricom was originally known for keeping a balanced ship between speed, acceleration, handling, and shielding back in their early days as a racing team. He understood why when he remembered when he studied it back at the Good Smile Racing Academy and realized that they began to make these kinds of ships during the F9000 in response to the criticisms they received over the years in the F9000, which unfortunately made the transition into the newer leagues as well when Triakis came into play. Fortunately, Ayaka was with him and she was able to tune the ships so that they were more reasonable to handle. Although the speed and shielding were lessened to compensate for the tuning, it didn’t have much of a factor. After a few practice runs though, the five began to astonish the entire academy, pulling off some of the fastest lap times and time trial runs to ever be recorded in Auricom Academy’s history and making ACM-8K look fast after giving it the attention it needed the most, not to mention the barrel rolls that they pulled out. Some of the trainees thought they were maniacs, but they knew the racing lines and knew where to pull out barrel rolls. At the end of it all, Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko were some of the best pilots of the academy. The question now, however, is who will be the lead pilot to represent the Auricom Academy junior racing team? That question was answered in a few short days.

    Weeks before the JX350 league and the applications for pilot positions were due, the pilots for the professional Auricom racing team consisting of Tyrrell Byron, Rachel Vega, and Tara Shannon, returned from preseason testing for the FX500 to America to visit the Auricom Academy. They were transported to the academy of Auricom Academy via AG-limbo and they met Jessie Fairbank outside to see the new pilots for the junior racing team and to determine who will be the lead pilot and wingmen for the team. When the three got there they took note that Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko were racing together against other trainees who were interested in racing them to see how the five are able to use the Auricom ships Ayaka did some tuning to the ACM-8K during their practice session. The professional team, along with Jessie Fairbank, observed the five students while they were racing and took note of the big lead that the kids made and each of them finished with at least a six second lead against the others. The professionals were immediately impressed by the kids’ performance and wanted to meet the new trainees when practice session was over.

    Shortly after, Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko met the professionals of the Auricom racing team and introduced each other. After some introductions, the professionals wanted to meet the juniors outside the main entrance to the Auricom Academy on the next practice day to see who will become the lead pilot for the Auricom Academy junior team. Tyrrell wanted to test the five junior pilots to see how well they can use the ACM-8K. He brought the kids and his professional team to the Amphiseum race track, located in Nevada as an extension to Las Vegas. He set up a unique event to see how close the kids can get to the ACM-9K using the ACM-8K across every speed class with no weapons active. During the event, all of the junior pilots followed the exact racing line of the track in every direction and all five have pulled off the exact same amount of barrel rolls. In the end though, the answer to who will become the lead pilot for the junior team became clear to the professionals. When he revealed the results, Tyrrell chose Johnathan Hale as the lead pilot to represent Auricom Academy getting as close as fractions of a meter to Tyrrell, Rachel, and Tara. Tyrrell was impressed to see some fresh pilots that have the same caliber as he and the pros do. As Johnathan and Hitomi continued to get ready for the JX350 league, they got a call from their friend, Mizuki Nakajima that they are allowed to use the Adaptive Flight Suits for the league, which was given to him and his friends before they left for America.

    When the JX350 racing league came about, Johnathan scored his first medal in the opening race of the season, a silver. He then scored another silver during the first Eliminator on the same track, just barely beating his friend, Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems, by a point. Johnathan Hale soon became an oddball to many of the racing fans and analysts. Much like Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, Johnathan would always be inches close to winning a gold medal, only to be beaten by the last millisecond or by a single point by either his best friend, Michael Sanderson, or by some of the other junior pilots including Maksim Zolnerowich of Triakis during two Eliminator events and once during the Zone Battle by Xue Lee of EG-X. But at the end of the whole thing, Johnathan didn’t have a single problem with it. When the Concordia Loop Accident occurred at Talon’s Junction, Johnathan volunteered for Michael alongside Mizuki Nakajima from AG-Systems to keep an eye on the racing league when Michael took two weeks off of racing and gave him a sit-rep when he returned.

    While Johnathan was racing, a junior pilot from Qirex’s junior team, Quantax Dynamics, challenged him for his girlfriend, Hitomi Yamaguchi of the same team. The challenging pilot from the junior team was Petia Romanov, a Russian pilot who didn’t have a lot of brain cells nor piloting skills. Johnathan wondered why he was being challenged by the Russian when he is such a poor pilot, despite being called, in Petia’s own words, ‘a mockery to the American people’. Johnathan didn’t know what the guy was talking about as the guy was talking nonsense. As the pointless rivalry went on, Johnathan suggested to his girl, Hitomi, to end the rivalry once and for all with a boot between the Russian’s legs after being harassed for too long. She took the suggestion and along with Mizuki and Alexis of AG-Systems, and Ayaka of Auricom, gave Petia the boot and ended their rivalry between him and the girls and boys of AG-Systems and Auricom. This was enough to earn the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45, going as far as personally saying that she would like to see more of what the girls and boys of the two junior teams did more often.

    Thanks to Johnathan’s supportive nature, he has made many friends on the paddock. The Makanian Amazons of the Goteki junior team; consisting of Scarlett, Yin, and Hyun, were some of many of his friends, who helped train up Johnathan on their private island before the racing weekends. He also was able to make friends with Mirage’s junior team, MAGEC; which consisted of Hafiz and the Raqisas girls, the Sand Dancers. Johnathan was a particular friend of Hafiz, helping him with his Eliminator skills. Other friends included his long time caretaker Buster Harding of Triakis and Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber also became a friend with Johnathan, with both helping each other out with racing lines and techniques. Johnathan also has made friends with the junior team of Piranha, Amazon Fury, as both he and Jacinto, lead pilot of Piranha’s junior team, supported each other whenever they could. He even met Rory Pinewood of Qirex in person, Johnathan’s second favorite pilot, with Tyrrell Byron of Auricom being his third favorite and Buster Harding of Triakis being his most favorite. The two of them discussed with each other as Rory was interested in Johnathan changing Auricom to be a better team publically to others. The follow is a part of their discussion:

    (Rory) “So you plan to change the team?”
    (Johnathan) “Of course.”
    (Rory) “How you plan to do this?”
    (Johnathan) “Make the team publically and actually nice to others for once, Qirex, Goteki, and Triakis. Spark a change within Auricom so that the team can be just as successful as Qirex without having to make themselves look bad.”
    (Rory) “It isn’t going to be easy, seeing that there a lot of stuck-up officials in Auricom.”
    (Johnathan) “I have my ways of doing things. And my friends, particularly Ayaka Hamasaki, are helping me with it as well.”
    (Rory) “You have some of the best friends in the world. I treasure them if I were you.”
    (Johnathan) “I already did. I give them my honest inputs and they have thanked me for it.”
    (Rory) “You’re one of the best people at Auricom. Jessie, Tyrrell, you and your friends will be able to change the team.”
    (Johnathan) “We will. Just one question though.”
    (Rory) “Yeah?”
    (Johnathan) “Did you have anything to do with Petia? The Quantax Dynamics team looks like they didn’t have much training, no offense.”
    (Rory) “No. As much as anyone thinks, the Quantax Dynamics team was hastily thrown together by the Qirex officials and the pilots were chosen without much thought. Felix and I weren’t happy about the pilot lineup but we had to work with it since we didn’t have much time to look for other pilots. Once the season is over, he and I hope to find some better pilots to fly for the team.”
    (Johnathan) “I see.”

    Johnathan would continue to score silver medals and a couple of bronze medals until the Virtual Series when Johnathan finally scored his first gold medal of the season during the Zone Battle on Corridon 12, a unique track that is completely split into two branches. He would continue to win silver and bronze medals after that, but people began to see Johnathan as a team player rather than someone who is holding their skills back. As Johnathan has said himself to a group of interviewers regarding this:

    (Johnathan) “Being a team player is a good way to become popular. I don’t have to win gold medals to become popular like my friends have. Winning a medal is a sign that you’re more than capable at what you’re doing.”

    Johnathan is also one of the members of the Miracle Eight, a group of kids who pull off impossible feats and make comebacks. Johnathan was very well known for giving out advice to people and was well noted for it, making him the best supporter of the group. He has been seen with Hitomi Yamaguchi, his girlfriend, and both have said that they plan to marry and start a family, like the other couples of the group have stated. For the most part, Johnathan would always beat the others when it came to getting the first autograph signed or the first photo taken with a fan. He can be a bit egocentric at times, but it doesn’t mean he helps his friends to get autographs signed or photos taken.

    Of course, Johnathan would be all smiles and happiness throughout the season if it weren’t for Tigron’s appearance on the track when the Rapier Series came about. The biggest surprise was the lead pilot of the team, Polina Petrov, former Bulgarian student at the Good Smile Racing Academy he went to years ago, is now working for the team, with some notable changes. Things were now heating up with Tigron back on the track and it soon became apparent that the team meant business when Polina eliminated half of the grid during the race at Metropia Reverse. Johnathan was thankfully close enough to one of the destroyed ships when the race was finished and was able to rescue his rival, Petia Romanov of Qirex, who was being scorched to death by the flames of his destroyed ships. With the help of Scarlett of Goteki, they were able to extinguish the flames of the burning ship and rescue Petia. Johnathan then was able to carry him back to his ship, despite the burning scent Petia’s body gave off who suffered third degree burns. Johnathan was able to quickly get his rival, who was burnt to a crisp, to the Kyoto Hospital for critical treatment. When a brave journalist was able to get to the hospital and asked Johnathan about the experience, he said in a tone he hadn’t used in a while:

    (Johnathan) “The poor guy smelled like overcooked barbeque when I got him out of his burning ship. The smell was so bad even I had to use the oxygen mask that my ship provided to keep the unpleasant smell from killing my own. I was able to get him to the hospital and the doctors were able to take care of the rest. Although we are rivals on the track, I’ve sent my deepest condolences to the guy. I hope he makes it through the many medical procedures that await him.”

    Johnathan was soon a target for Polina’s false information as a ‘big bully who hates everyone around him and makes everyone suffer’, which got him confused, because he is the opposite of what Polina described him as. Much like everyone else, he sighed in relief as she wasn’t able to score a single medal in non-race events. Things quickly escalated in weapon races however, and Polina was soon back on the track doing as much damage to the opposition as possible, including him as a target. Johnathan teamed up with Michael of AG-Systems and both were able to beat her in many race events that they took part in, except for two Eliminator events at Metropia and Tech De Ra respectively, as well as the race of infamy at the Kyoto track. Still, at least he was doing his part in keeping Polina away from the podium. It wasn’t until the series moved to Ubermall when he and his friends discovered a weakness in Tigron’s Bull ship. The ship was infamously known to be indestructible, but the race showed that it was vulnerable, assuming whatever it was giving its indestructible ability was taken out of the picture. When the racing league moved to the Amphiseum, Johnathan was responsible for sending out the invites to the other teams of the junior league and he was the Miracle Eight’s courier at the time. He has led each of the junior members of their squad to an unknown location to plan out the destruction of the Tigron ship. Many of them have thanked him for sending the info they needed to destroy the ship.

    When the race came to Tech De Ra, the Miracle Eight and the other teams put the plan into action, and with Scarlett of Goteki, he was able to drop a bomb just behind the mine field Scarlett laid down at the first turn of Tech De Ra Reverse. This was followed up with the final blow by Michael Sanderson with a plasma bolt, which ultimately eliminated Polina from the race and destroyed the Bull ship for good after Ayaka found a way to erase the AI from the ship, which was giving the ship shield regeneration. With Tigron’s elimination, disqualification, and ban from AG-racing, Johnathan was given a lot of credit for helping with the team’s elimination. After all, he did a lot of coordinating to get the other teams to take Tigron and their sponsor the BSV, who were later dismantled, out of the picture for good. Johnathan went on to finish the Phantom series and score his second gold medal during the Season Finale of the first JX350 league and help his friends, AG-Systems, and Auricom hold up the very first JX350 cup.

    Johnathan has showed to the racing world that he doesn’t have to win every single race to be a very good AG-pilot or even the most popular for that matter, though he is determined to do well in the next season. Many race experts and analyst have said that he and his friends can match or even surpass Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time. As well as his friends, Johnathan was able to change Auricom for the better and the company is still undergoing a lot of changes thanks to the junior pilots of the team. Rory of Qirex has said that if it weren’t for them Auricom would still be as stuck-up as they were when he was a student there. With the next season coming soon, Johnathan is ready to show that he is just as capable as his friends and is ready to give them the support they need to succeed on the track and in the world.

    Bio

    A calm nature is a rare sight in the world of AG-racing, especially with weapons flying about. The racing world has been dominated by a number of aggressive racers throughout its history; including Omar Kulmala of Tigron Enterprises, Xavier Chaffin – and sometimes Vincent Stephenson – of Triaks, and sometimes Tauban Ferrai and Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45 in Eliminator events. It is not too often where a pilot would remain calm in many races with weapons involved and more often than not most pilots lose their cool nature when it came down to the wire. However, a junior pilot seemed to change that. And while she used weapons on the track, her calm nature never wavered. Hitomi Yamaguchi of Auricom’s junior team, Auricom Academy, was as calm and cool as a cucumber as any AG-pilot could get, and her results in the first season of the JX350 racing league showed that her calm and cool nature was the result of her near unchangeable nature.

    Born in the northern and colder part of Japan, Hitomi Yamaguchi grew up in the city of Sapporo, one of the coldest and largest cities of Japan. Hitomi always had a love for the cold, always wanting to go outside and play in the snow. During its history, the city of Sapporo held the Snow Festival every year and Hitomi went to each and every one of them during her childhood. At the same time, AG-technology was booming and the city adopted the use of the technology to get citizens around the city to various landmarks of the city. Thanks to the use of this technology, the city was able to make snow making machines, dozers, and many other snow machines for the winter festivals. Various activates were available in the winter aside from the festival that happens every year, including snowboarding, Hitomi’s favorite activity over the winter during her childhood. She loved snowboarding and the thrill of it, as well as the AG-technology that was used to make man-made snow for freestyle courses and trails. As a result, she was taller than the average girl. She enjoyed the competition between her and some of the fastest snowboarders around Sapporo, mainly consisting of boys and she beat each and every one of them, attracting the attention of the local people. This earned her the nickname ‘The Blizzard Girl’, for her speed through the snow even in harsh winter conditions.

    Hitomi was also one of the top students in her schools during her elementary and middle school years, attaining the top honors of her schools, attracting the attention of some of the private academies around Japan. However, one academy got her attention, which was designed to turn students into AG-racers, the Good Smile Racing Academy. Hitomi always had a love for speed and wanted to travel outside of Sapparo to see how the world was like. With her parents’ approval and their recommendation to go to a private academy to further her studies, Hitomi traveled outside of Sapporo for the first time in her life. She was amazed to see the world around her as she traveled to the academy located in Kyoto via air-blimp. Japan was also known for having some of the most advanced technology in their country as well as well as the use of AG-technology seen all over the country as well as some other countries across the globe. She wondered what the other parts of the world were like as she finally arrived at Kyoto. She took an air bus to the academy and found that many different students from across the globe were also here. The academy was designed to be an international school for AG-racing and she would do her best to nab the top honors. Of course, the initial evaluation would say otherwise.

    Despite her love for AG-technology, when she took her evaluation, she discovered that each question was extremely tough, forcing her to take her time though each question, and each of them only got harder and a lot more confusing to her as her knowledge on AG-technology was almost next to nothing; she never really got hand-on with them nor wondered how they worked. The questions were university standard, making her wonder if this was high school or not. In the end, she managed to barely pass the evaluation with seventy six percent of the questions correct. She began to wonder if it was even possible to achieve the top honors in a university standard academy, especially when she had competition, including Polina Petrov, the initial top student at the academy. She knew if she was going to pass the next part of the evaluation or even get through the academy with top marks, she needed to make some friends, even though if those friends were from outside the country. Thankfully, she was able to make some friends, who’ll become a big part of her life. When she made her way to the cafeteria for lunch, she met two other girls. Those girls were Mizuki Nakajima and Ayaka Hamasaki, who are from the same country as Hitomi was, only from the south west. Then later on, as Polina was prepared to rob the girls and two other boys of their food, they quickly finished their food before she could get her hands on it thanks to the two boys that caught eye of her. The two boys that were there were Michael Sanderson and Johnathan Hale, two boys who were together for most of their childhood and have become close friends since. She tagged along with them and the other girls as they ended up running into another girl and two more boys that would join them as well. They were Eric Patterson, Alexis Anderson, and Sora Yasashi, two American students and a shy and reserved Japanese student respectively. All eight of them had the same thing in common, to pass the school with at least a passing grade. The second part of the evaluation however, would be their life-changing moment.

    During the second evaluation, a power outage occurred due to a natural lightning bolt hitting the school. As Hitomi and the friends that she made started their second evaluation which was a zone simulation, their minds were locked into the virtual world. Shortly after, the power returned to the school and the simulation was still going, eventually coming to an end. The eight were then sent to the infirmary of the school and their health was miraculously normal, though there were other things that have changed about them. When the doctors checked their vitals, they noted that the eight students’ bio readings were completely off the charts. As the doctors tried to find an explanation for the sudden change to the kids’ bio readings, no doctor as of late has come to a conclusion, though some are suggesting that the simulator when the power went out had something to do with it. Shortly after, Hitomi and the others were a lot smarter and stronger, not to mention how much stamina and dexterity they gained from that one event. She and the others were given weekly medical checks to ensure that their health remained normal, aside from the ‘changes’ that they received. Most doctors said some sort of ‘miracle’ happened to the eight and that they were gifted with something. This has gone unexplained as of late.

    For the entirety of her time at the Good Smile Racing Academy, Hitomi and her friends aced every assignment and exam that were given to them, dominating the school’s academics. They also held the school records of every simulated race and Zone simulations the school set up, making them one the students to beat in races at the time. This would soon get the attention of the two team principles that partnered with the academy. On the other hand, Tokyo would sometimes have snowfall during winter break and Hitomi would always be seen outside on the academy’s housing grounds, sometimes in a kimono. She would also be alongside with her boyfriend she made while at the academy, Johnathan Hale.

    The team principles, Sakura Tanaku of AG-Systems and Jessie Fairbank of Auricom, first came to the school for the very first opening ceremony when GSRA opened up. Months later, they returned to find some interesting kids that have been creating a lot of buzz. The principles have admitted that this was going to be another academy for AG-racing. But as it turned out, the school has made some interesting results, particularly the top eight students and two others that were doing well interested them. The team heads that visited the academy on the first day of school came over just a month before the semester ended to pick out the students for their junior racing teams. As Sakura Tanaku of AG-Systems chose Michael Sanderson, Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, Sora Akiyama, and Jessica Caluroso, Jessie Fairbank of Auricom chose Johnathan Hale, Hitomi Yamaguchi, Eric Patterson, Ayaka Hamasaki, and Setsuko Tanaka for her junior racing team, Auricom Academy. When the 2214 school semester came to an end, Hitomi graduated from GSRA with the top honors and marks in the academy along with her friends. Soon after, she was sent to the United States to further her training in Auricom Academy with Johnathan Hale and the others. This would be her first time that she traveled outside Japan and to another country.

    When Hitomi arrived at the US, she took note of the AG-technology that was used by the Americans. Much like the citizens back in her hometown, the citizens in the US have adapted the use of the technology, the main example were the construction cranes and haulers that were used to help reconstruct various cities that were affected by seismic activity back in the late 21st century, particularly Spilskinanke, a F5000 race track located in San Francisco which was decommissioned once the city was rebuilt. When she arrived at the academy located in Tule Desert of Nevada, she, along with Johnathan, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko was given a tour of the academy by Jessie Fairbank. A day later, she underwent training on using the Auricom ships and knowing the rules and regulations of the junior league that was coming up. It was Hitomi’s first time that she would be using a ship rather than the hover-board that Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems gave to her. The ships however, were heavier than Hitomi anticipated, which was proving difficult for her to maneuver around the test track. Conversely, Ayaka just happened to be more than smart enough to make some adjustments to the ACK-8M; sacrificing speed and shielding to make it more maneuverable. Soon the ship fit Hitomi so much that she moved the ship as if she was riding her hover-board and snowboarding back at her home country, Sapporo. She soon became quicker than anyone else in Auricom Academy and began to astonish the trainees at the academy with lap times at the test tracks including the Belmondo Test Site along with Johnathan, Eric, Ayaka, and Setsuko. This also caught the attention of the professional racing team of Auricom and the pilots wanted to see what she was capable of. Her performance was well noted when the professional team tested her at the Amphiseum as she got really close to the professionals during a test event for who’ll be the lead pilot for the Auricom Academy junior team. While Hitomi was positioned as a wingman, she was a very good one and Auricom would see that as clear as day.

    Her calm nature was soon put to the test in her first race of the first season of the JX350 racing league, a Time Trial on the beaches of Vineta K on Makana. She did well over the other competitors, scoring a bronze medal, surprising many racing analysts. She soon followed it up with a silver in a Zone run at Vineta K and a bronze and silver in the Eliminator events at Talon’s Junction. She continued to score silver medals throughout the season until a Detonator event at Modesto Heights, where she scored her very first gold medal of the season. According to her, she enjoys the more technical tracks despite her junior status and she has said that she would like to race on the more technical tracks. She would continue to win silver medals and another bronze medal during the Rapier series.

    Despite the number of close races in which she was only inches away from the top only to come up short, Hitomi never seemed to have a problem with it. She has always remained calm in every event she took part in, even in Eliminator events where weapons were flying about. She has said that she enjoys the competition around her and as long as everyone followed the rules and win within them, including weapons use, she was okay with it. Some people were confused if she wasn’t really trying to win or if she was holding herself back, but all she wanted was to have fun and that is what mattered to her the most. After all, she has score a number of podium finishes and never made such a big fuss about it.
    Despite her cool nature, she was soon challenged by another pilot for her attention. The challenger was Petia Romanov of Qirex’s junior team, Quantax Dynamics. However, she kept her cool and was able to defeat him time and time again, though he still continued to annoy him. However, her boyfriend, Johnathan Hale, gave her an idea. He took the idea out of Michael Sanderson’s playbook and suggested that she give him a kick between the legs so hard that he wouldn’t bother her or the girls anymore. When Petia got to the point where she was annoyed the most, she took Johnathan’s suggestion and kicked Petia in the family jewels, hard. The other girls, Mizuki, Alexis, and Ayaka soon followed suit with a kick of their own, ending the rivalry between her and the annoying guy. This earned the kids the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki’s professional team and has admitted that she would like to see what the girls did more often.

    Thanks to her kind nature, Hitomi has made many friends on the paddock. The Makanian Amazons of Goteki’s junior team were some of her friends that she made as they have given her special training to further her skills and her beauty. The MAGEC junior team of Mirage, consisting of Hafiz Nejem and the Raqisas sisters were also some the many friends that she made, sharing race advice and tactics on each race event. She has also made friends with pilots of Piranha’s junior team, Amazon Fury, helping the team with handling some of the tougher tracks using Piranha’s FX350-400 craft, the Rocket Tooth. She has also made friends with Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber when he asked for help in Zone events and racing line techniques, which Hitomi was more than happy to help with despite the age gap between them. Outside the junior league she has become one of Buster Harding’s students when it came to training her on various techniques such as martial arts and piloting skill refinement. She also underwent training from Rory Pinewood of Qirex and has tested her under various moments with a lot of pressure on her. He was immediately impressed that she can keep her cool and patience even under the most difficult situations. He sees her as one of Auricom’s finest if she can keep her cool throughout her career. Another friend that Hitomi made was Sekhar Sahib of Harimau International. Sekhar has developed a deep-seated fear of Auricom and has been avoiding them since his elimination by former second pilot Torogu Ukantu, who has since retired from racing. When her friend Alexis Anderson of AG-Systems recommended to see the three girls of Auricom Academy, Hitomi made contact with Sekhar for the first time alongside with Ayaka and Setsuko. He was still a bit frightened at first, but thanks to the kind nature of the girls, he began to talk to them more and more and his fear of Auricom began to dwindle little by little. As of late, he only really made contact with them, but is starting to open up to them often, especially to Johnathan and Eric, who have shown their kind nature to the startled Indian.

    Hitomi is also a member of the Miracle Eight, a group consisting of eight attractive kids, including herself. Despite being the least attractive girl when the fans and supporters ran a poll to see who is the most attractive girl, with Mizuki being the most attractive of them all, a lot of the fans and supporters still saw Hitomi as an attractive girl and have even said that she is very polite to everyone she has met. Not once she has said anything rude or even lose her cool in high pressure situations. She is a girl who always had a smile on her face and many race fans have taken notice of it.

    Things seemed to change for the worse when Polina Petrov of Tigron arrived on the racing scene during the Rapier series. However, Hitomi never lost her cool even when Polina eliminated half the grid during the race of infamy at Metropia Reverse. Instead, she made moves to help the others and was able to help the others navigate their way through the air traffic to get the injured pilots to the Kyoto Hospital. It was thanks to her and her friends that they were able to save the injured pilots when the rescue shuttles were disabled. Joes Peeters of the professional Assegai racing team and chief medic pilot for the junior racing league thanked Hitomi and the others for saving the injured at a critical time. However, things only got worse.

    With Polina causing a lot more damage, the danger of people getting hurt skyrocketed. Hitomi knew that Polina would target her friends and herself, but she never knew that she would as far as targeting everyone just to get to her, including spectators. Polina then soon turned her attention to Hitomi and called her a ‘dishonorable girl’. Polina was now using misinformation to anger her and make her lose her cool, but Hitomi kept herself in check. She would only use her aggression on the track. While Polina was still able to score wins in Eliminator, Hitomi teamed up with Mizuki of AG-Systems to slow Polina down and keep her away from the top spot, until something happened that would turn the tide against the Tigron pilot.

    During the Rapier series tournament, Michael and Johnathan used their plasma bolt and rockets to damage Polina’s ship. When they landed a successful hit on her ship, the ship revealed a cracked that Hitomi was quick to spot a crack in the ship’s armor plating, which was located near the ship’s engine core, with a direct line of sight to the core and fuel system itself. The crack was so small that it was unnoticeable, almost. Now that Hitomi was able to find out that the ship had a weakness, she can use it to take Polina, Tigron, and the BSV out of the picture. Hitomi reported her findings to her friends and, after inviting them, the other junior members of their respective teams during the Phantom Series. The crack wasn’t noticeable at first, but after investigating themselves, the other junior members began to work with her and her friends of the Miracle Eight on destroying the ship.

    While she was working to destroy the ship, Hitomi also enjoyed massive popularity as a member of the Miracle Eight when the series came to the Amphesium and many fans have asked her for autographs and photos of her. Her polite nature have made her popular amongst the racing fans, particularly the younger and older fans. She has also helped them in various situations and offered them as much advice on their situations. Many people have noted her kindness and have asked her for help when they needed it. The race soon moved to Tech De Ra and when the Phantom Series tournament came about, she worked with Mizuki to damage Tigron’s ship for Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems to land the final blow during the last race. Tigron was finally out of the race, and out for the remainder of the season, a good sign for things to come, at least for now. It wasn’t long before the BSV made their move in response to the destruction of the Bull ship and many death threats were soon sent out to many of the junior pilots, including her. She then got together with her friends and the other junior pilots and reported this to Krystian Atkinson and the race commission. Before long, Polina, Tigron, and the BSV were soon banned from the AG-racing sport and Tigron and the BSV were later dismantled. Hitomi sighed relief with them and Polina gone and many fellow junior pilots and professional pilots including Pinewood and Harding, and Harimau team principle Manjula Vamatharen congratulated her for ridding the world of Tigron. She went on to compete in the season finale tournament of the first JX350 season.

    While Hitomi didn’t win a whole lot of gold medals this season, she has become a very popular pilot thanks to her calm, cool, and friendly nature and has made many friends and fans across the globe. With the next season of the JX350 in the works, with the races going to more technical tracks across Makana, Hitomi is looking forward to doing well next season. Many race analysts have gone on saying that she and her friends of the Miracle Eight can match or even surpass Kel Solaar, the greatest AG-pilot of all time, if they continue to race and step up to the professional leagues. Hitomi is looking forward to doing just that and she plans to help her team and her friends take the next JX350 season.

    Bio

    Focusing on one thing at a time is easy, but two or more at a time is especially a daunting task. This is applies especially to Nyoko Kassan of Assegai, who sees AG-racing as a hobby, and he tends to wonder away from the AG-racing more often than not, which have some of the Assegai officials worried if he can be a potent pilot for the FX500. However, it is not out of the realm of possibility to do two things at once, and one junior pilot of Auricom made it look easy. Eric Patterson, junior pilot of Auricom, was able to juggle two or more things as an AG-pilot, artist, and a member of the Miracle Eight. He made each task look easy and the JX350 league was a good example of his ability to multitask many things on hand.

    Eric was born in Seattle, Washington, a city concerned over privacy and security, where the Arc Prime race track of the FX400 is also located. As a residence of the city, he has always been with his family ever since the walls of the city and the secure network channels were made. His family tends to be a bit old fashioned and he has used various unorthodox ways to communicate with each other to ensure their privacy and security were not compromised. Eric is also the son of the famous artist of the city and a lot of citizens there see him as the next big artist of the city. However, he also had another interest aside from being an artist, AG-racing.

    Of course, his interest in racing would’ve never come to his mind if the FX400 didn’t come to Arc Prime. When he and his family visited the track during that time, he was so focused on the race, the teams, and the track that he would lose track of time or what is happening around him, but things soon changed after the race. He began to look around his environment and find the best spectator seats available before the race begins. When the race came to Arc Prime again, he brought his art materials to the place, found the best seats, and began to draw out each section of the track and was able to capture every moment of racing on Arc Prime. The son of the famous artist was starting to come to his own and many artwork of each track around the world, as well as the ships from each team, were soon created and he began to make a fortune out of it. He also was able to make great marks in his classes during his childhood at the same time, which was more than enough to catch someone’s attention.

    As he got some of the highest marks during his elementary years, Eric received an invitation to another academy months before his middle school years, the Good Smile Racing Academy, which was recently built and a month away from starting their first school year. His parents were happy that he got into a prestigious school, but were also worried about his safety. However, Eric told his parents that he would be okay. After all, he has very good awareness around him. With his parents’ help, he left his hometown, state, and country for the first time in his life to attend the Good Smile Racing Academy, located in Japan’s capital, Tokyo. When he arrived at the country, he started to make many drawings of the city before him, and when he arrived at the academy, he made drawings of the school as well.

    As he was introduced to the school via directors who gave him and all of the students who were invited, he was given two initial evaluations to take. The first was to see if he was capable enough to stay in the school. The other, to place him in the proper class tier. The first initial evaluation tested him very well and put his knowledge of AG-technology at its very limits. Nevertheless, he was able to pass the first initial evaluation alongside the other thirty percent of the students who passed. He then went on to sightseeing throughout the academy and make sketches of various landmarks of the place and the many students at the academy as well.

    Before the opening ceremonies however, he was soon a target for a group of bullies who were led by Polina Petrov, the top student of the academy at the time. He didn’t know what the bullies wanted from him, but he ended up with two other students, Alexis Anderson and Sora Akiyama, who befriended him during lunch break, when the bullies attacked. That is, until someone scared them away. When the bullies dispersed, Eric got a clear line of sight on who did. That person was Michael Sanderson, an American just like him. He was also with four others when they came by. Johnathan Hale was Michael’s long time childhood friend, while Mizuki Nakajima, Hitomi Yamaguchi, and Ayaka Hamasaki just tagged along with them not to long ago. Eric was glad to be around some people who were on alert. He, along with Alexis and Sora, tagged along with them for the opening ceremonies. They soon took the second evaluation together to determine which tier they would be classed up in, with a twist.

    Right before the second evaluation began, the building that Eric and his friends were in was struck by a natural lightning storm, cutting power to the simulator and the school as well, locking them into the simulator in the process. However, the simulation started as soon this natural occurrence happened and when it ended, they were removed from the simulator and into the infirmary, along with their results. As the results came in along with their bio readings, many doctors were surprised by both of the results that came in. Not only did they passed their second evaluation with flying colors, they passed it by a big landslide. To top it off, their bio readings were off the chart. Both results were clear for the doctors to see, but they didn’t have an explanation for it as they couldn’t find one. Nevertheless, Eric and his friends became the top students of the Good Smile Racing Academy, triumphing over Polina Petrov, who only managed to hit Mach 1 speeds whilst he and his friends were able to hit Supersonic speeds, even getting to some of the highest Zones possible. He and his friends were given the privilege of wearing the prestigious white and red Tier One School uniforms as a result.

    Because of the events that happened during the second evaluation, Eric soon enjoyed the massive amount of knowledge, strength, and dexterity that he was given, able to excel in many classes and exams that he was put in. Thanks to this, he was able to multitask very easily and this was clear as day when he made many drawings of some of the students, professors, academy landmarks, his friends, and even himself. When the invention festival was coming up during the second year of the academy, Eric was able to make the concepts of the Adaptive Flight Suits made my Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, and Hitomi Yamaguchi and the hover-boards made by Michael Sanderson, Johnathan Hale, and Sora Akiyama, with Ayaka taking part in both, thanks to her massive knowledge. As a result of their efforts, both inventions became a run-away success, with the former being used in the JX350 racing league in 2215.

    His talent for art was well noted and his artwork caught the attention of one of his friends from the same tier, Ayaka Hamasaki. As he was drawing her, she soon found that he was able to draw every bit of detail her, their friends, and every student, professor, and landmark of the Good Smile Racing Academy. She soon became interested in him and both of them have been together since. With the brains working on the technical stuff, while the artist working on drawing out the concepts of their work, they were a match made in heaven, and it would show when they would be part of a racing team. During the last month of the academy’s first graduation year, the team heads of AG-Systems and Auricom, Sakura Tanaku and Jessie Fairbaink respectively, formed a one season partnership with the academy during the school’s very first year to promote the academy. In turn, each team head would take five of ten students to race for their respective team as junior pilots. Eric was chosen by Jessie Fairbank to fly for Auricom Research Industries alongside Johnathan Hale, Hitomi Yamaguch, Ayaka Hamasaki, and Setsuko Tanaka, while Michael Sanderson, Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, Sora Akiyama, and Jessica Caluroso were chosen by Sakura Tanaku to fly for AG-Systems.

    Eric graduated with the highest marks and honors alongside with his friends and each of them soon went with their respective teams. Eric would return to America once more, this time heading to the Auricom Academy located in Nevada, where the Belmondo Test Site is located. It didn’t take too long for the artist to become a pilot and he was able to fit in with the team within a month. The only thing that he seemed to have a problem with Auricom was their poor handling ships as they didn’t turn on a dime. Thankfully, his girlfriend Ayaka Hamasaki, was able to make some adjustments for him and his other friends. Now the ACM-8K was handling the way he prefers it, not too much, but not too little at the same time. He was even able to catch the attention of the professional pilots of Auricom, Tyrrell Byron, Rachel Vega, and Tara Shannon. Tyrrell was able to recognize Eric off the bat as he has seen him before many times when the FX400 came to Arc Prime, Seattle’s race track. He was impressed to see him become a pilot for the team while being an artist at the same time. Tyrrell then placed him in a test event to see how close he can get to him with the junior pilots using the ACM-8K and the pro pilots using the ACM-9K0. Eric showed that he can hang with the pros while doing what he loves to do off the sidelines and he was placed as a secondary pilot for Auricom Academy.

    Before the JX350 began, Eric was making many drawings of his surrounding of Auricom Academy, including the Belmondo Test Site. He was more than eager to get many drawings of objects, the environment, and even people in the working environment. He was even able to draw the head of Auricom, Jessie Fairbank. His artistic talent was on par with his racing talent as well and when the JX350 came about, it was clear that Eric can handle the competition. While Eric took part in solo events alongside Sora Akiyama of AG-Systems for the most part, he has shown that he can hang with the others, scoring a good amount of medals when he raced. As he wasn’t racing, he was drawing everything around him. People, objects, the environment, everything he saw, he was able to perfectly replicate them in a drawing. Many drawings included the tracks across Makana and the world, the various pilots, and the ships, he even drew out each of the team heads that made themselves present to him, even going as far as drawing the team principle of Qirex – Auricom’s arch rival – Feliks Levovitch.

    It wouldn’t be too long before he would take part in his first race event, the first race of the Venom Tournament and placed 2nd in the race, scoring a very good amount of points just behind his friend, Sora Akiyama. Eric’s awareness of the environment around him allowed him to take advantage of many situations, able to pass when his rivals were hit by weapons and even dodge weapons fire coming his way. But it also wouldn’t be too long before a rivalry was made. Russian pilot of Qirex, Petia Romanov, was quick to form a rivalry between him and Eric, though Eric didn’t see him as much of a problem. Instead, he just concentrated on his art and piloting skills and he was able to beat his rival time and time again. Of course, it will be a matter of time before his rival becomes a nuisance to him. With the help of his girlfriend and his friends as well, they were able to put an end to the rivalry, which ended with the girls’ subsequent boot between the legs, causing Petia not to practice for the next few races, which also earned them the respect of Goteki’s second pro pilot, Andrea Santiago. Eric can now get back to doing what he did best, art and racing.

    Eric has made many friends on the track from various teams. The Makanian Amazons of Goteki 45, Scarlett, Yin, and Hyun, were some of the friends he made. While he captured their beauty in many drawings, the girls trained him to be just as beautiful as they were, even inviting him for some private training. The junior pilots of Mirage, Hafiz, Alqamar, and Alshshams, also befriended him as Eric drew them, as well as helping them with some of the tracks that have been giving the junior pilots a lot of trouble, he has also become friends with the junior members of Piranha and with Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber as he worked alongside with each them to help their racing techniques. As well as making friends in the junior league, he has made some friends in the professional leagues. Buster Harding of Triakis was one of his friends, who has trained him before at GSRA and on the track and Buster has given him some heavy training on the track. Rory Pinewood of Qirex on the other hand was interested in Eric’s ability to multitask and put him in many high pressure situations to see how well Eric can multitask them all. He was immediately impressed at how well Eric can handle many tasks at hand at the same time. The man continued to train the boy by training him with the ‘Bad Boys’ of the pro leagues consisting of himself, Buster, Tauban of Goteki 45, and Kaet’yrun of Mirage. Eric and his friends were put in many private Zone Battle events and were given a lot of experience from the simulated events.

    Eric is also a member of the Miracle Eight, a group of attractive teens who have pulled off impossible feats under extreme pressure in many situations. Eric is well-known for his artistic and piloting skills that many other fans were inspired to do the same. He has made many drawings for his fans as well as autographed them. He is also in many photo shoots and has become very popular along with his friends. Much like the other couples of the group, Eric and his girlfriend, Ayaka, were a match made in heaven. The two have been couples since they met at the Good Smile Racing Academy and both have said that they plan to marry at one given point.

    Eric seemed to enjoy himself as he was flying for his home team and drawing at the same time. That is, until Polina Petrov, a former rogue student of the same school he went to, arrived on the scene, only this time flying for Tigron Enterprises, a dark name that should’ve been lost in history. When Tigron arrived during the Rapier series, it was clear that they were up to no good. Eric remained on alert in cases they were going to cause trouble. Unfortunately, the team was able to eliminate half of the competition during the race of infamy at Metropia, an event that Eric has said that he wished that there was a way to prevent it. Still, he intervened as he fired an Auricom ship up to rescue Hunter Bradford of Icaras’ junior team, Horus Rising. Many of the team principles have thanked the Miracle Eight, including Eric, who was acknowledged by Connor Burns, team head of Icaras, for saving Hunter’s life. Still, the small victory soon became hollow when Polina began to do damage off the track, via misinformation. As she was spreading misinformation, Eric was keeping tabs on her and the team, making sketches of the ship and the pilot as he wasn’t a target for misinformation. However, she was able to keep tabs on him as well and found ways to keeping him under her watchful, augmented, eye. It was a game of who can outsmart who, a game that Eric wouldn’t lose.

    Eric teamed up with Sora of AG-Systems and was able to beat Polina to the punch on many occasions, with the exception of three events. It was soon during the Rapier tournament that he and his friends discovered a hole in the armored Tigron Bull ship. He soon memorized the location and made many sketches of the hole in the ship so that he can get an idea how to combat the ship. Ayaka on the other hand made an attempt to notify the commissioner that Tigron was using illegal technology, but failed to do so. Still, there was a victory to be had and Eric was able to point out the weak spot to his friends. They soon got together and sent private invitations to the other junior members of each team, excluding Tigron of course. They laid out plans to destroy the ship and utilized the drawing that Eric made to help everyone find the opening in the ship. With the plan set, the other junior members went their separate ways to keep the plan a secret. For the time being, he would concentrate on enjoying his growing popularity at the Amphiesum, located near Las Vegas, Nevada.

    While at the natural extension of Las Vegas, known as the Amphiesum, Eric and his friends enjoyed their popularity. Many fans crowded them for autographs and photos of the group as their popularity skyrocketed. During quiet times, Eric continued to draw out the landscape of the Amphiesum and the people that populate the city. He was also seen with a lot more art material during that time as many people who saw him presumed that he was finalizing his work. Regardless, he was still doing what he did best, art and racing, and he would be doing it a bit more at Tech De Ra. When the race moved there, Eric made some of his finest work of art at the place, though the last location of the season finale of the JX350 would be even better. He made use of his sketches and kept a close eye on Polina during the Phantom series. However, it would be her turn to take a couple of races over him and Sora, but it soon became clear that the tournament of the series would be her last.

    When the tournament began, Eric and Sora teamed up once again to do as much damage to Polina’s Bull ship. The two were able do major damage to the ship and force the AI to commence repairs to the ship, allowing Ayaka to gain access to the ship, disable the AI, and delete it at the start of the last race in Tech De Ra. With their part done, it was only a matter of time before the ship was finally put out of its misery, with Michael of AG-Systems landing the final nail in the coffin. The two were unable to find Polina as she ejected from her ship, but it wouldn’t matter at the end since she was banned from the sport or any anti-gravity related sports, permanently, along with Tigron and their sponsor, the BSV, with both being dismantled soon after. Eric sighed a relief with both banes of existence out of the picture, it was a bad sight for him to begin with. He, along with Sora, were congratulated for doing the most damage to the Tigron Bull ship. Eric went on to finish the season with a gold medal and the first ever JX350 cup secured for the Auricom team.

    Able to handle many situations at once, Eric is truly a master of multitasking. While Nyoko Kassan might be the closet pilot to do two things at once – despite seeing AG-racing as only a hobby, Eric is able to do more. With the first JX350 season finally over, Eric was able to finalize his artwork of every pilot, team principle, ship, the tracks and their environments, as well as many landmarks of the tracks he visited, and submit them to his family museum back in Seattle, which has been given many positive reviews by viewer, critics, as well as the team principles, who were impressed to see themselves detailed out so well in each piece of art. He was soon getting a huge income from his art, which one half going to his family’s museum and the other to him, and from his sponsors. And with Ayaka by his side, the two continue to push Auricom in the right direction and plan to marry very soon in the near future. There is nothing that Eric can’t do and he plans to show what he is capable in the next JX350 season.

    Bio

    Auricom’s ships have not been great since the FX300, with the ACM-7K7 losing a lot of ground in the league despite being a good all-rounder, and the ACM-8K would’ve been a great, if not, better ship if it weren’t for Auricom’s behind-closed-doors policy on their ship development and their heavy focus on a combat ship. With the JX350 on the rise, a lot of people were expecting Auricom to have a bad time in the junior leagues, or even drop out of it entirely. But the first season showed a different story, when the ACM-8K was seen in the front of the pack for every race, astonishing many racing analyzers, engineers, and fans. How did the American racing team do so well in the first season of the JX350 league? Many race analyzers began to wonder how this was possible. Great pilots – which was very unlikely due to the ships poor performance, a new technology that Auricom got their hands on – another unlikely possibility due to the team’s lack of technology sharing, many engineers from the other teams didn’t know what was making the ACM-8K such a great ship in the JX350 league despite performing poorly in the FX350 and 400. The answer was something that nobody expected, a girl who fine-tuned the ship which allowed Auricom to be at the front of the pack for the entire season of the JX350 league. The girl in question who did Auricom a huge favor, who are now turning to her for advice on building their ships, is no other than Ayaka Hamasaki, the daughter of a rich family who shares AG-technology globally and is also one of the members of the Miracle Eight who also changed Auricom forever.

    Ayaka Hamasaki was born in the south of Japan of Yokahama in a rich family. Unlike most wealthy families who would save as much money as possible, her family used the money to help distribute some of the finest AG-technology to various companies, particularly to Auricom and AG-Systems from their family company, Hamasaki Distribution. As a result, the Hamasaki family enjoyed large amounts of funding from both teams and continued to distribute technology to their clients around the world. During her childhood, Ayaka was exposed to the AG-technology very early in her life. Her mother and father began to teach her how some of the AG-technology worked and even taught her some of the more complicated knowledge of AG-technology. She quickly learned everything she was taught in just a matter of weeks and the family expects her to continue her family’s business once she reaches adulthood.

    In order to help her studies in AG-technology, she was placed in some of the top schools in the world in her elementary years. While she didn’t make a lot of friends during her elementary years, she was quickly seen at the top of the school ranking boards for the highest marks, earning her the respect of many teachers. When the end of her childhood was coming up, her family got an invite from a newly built academy in Tokyo, the Good Smile Racing Academy, who were looking for highly talented students for their new school to teach the art of AG-racing. Without second thoughts, her family accepted the invite off the bat and sent their daughter to the school to further her studies and help her become more independent. The GSRA was infamous for their high standards that made even the top schools in the world pale in comparison. However with the knowledge she learned from her parents, she was able to pass the initial evaluation. Unlike the other students, with 70% of them failing the evaluation and only the other 30% passing it, she was able to completely ace the initial evaluation, making her the top student in the academy. Except that someone else was given a free pass and the top spot of the ranking boards above her without taking the evaluation, Polina Petrov, who she met again later in her life. Ayaka was not pleased of the results when she found out that someone bribed their way for the top spot in the academy, but she had no choice but to deal with it as she had no power in changing the results that were posted on the school boards at the time.

    After the initial evaluation, Ayaka decided to make some friends in the academy so that she can help others get through the academy by sharing her knowledge and possibly find a boyfriend in the process so that she can continue her family heritage. There were a number of students who passed the evaluation, but she had a difficult time in choosing the right set of friends. Thankfully, she was able to find two girls who just happened to cross her path. They were Mizuki Nakajima from Tokyo and Hitomi Yamaguchi from Sapporo. They ended up eating lunch together when Polina came to their table to steal their food. However, there was someone else nearby that was able to single the girls that she was coming and they were able to plan ahead before she arrived, unable to steal their food as the group of students digested it, leaving Polina nothing to steal as she left disappointed. The person who was there was Michael Sanderson who was also with Johnathan Hale at the time; with both coming from America. She made friends with the two boys, and when she and her friends were on their way to the opening ceremonies of the school, they also made friends with Alexis Anderson and Eric Patterson from America and Sora Akiyama Japan. They would go on to take the second evaluation together.

    During the second evaluation however, the kids were locked in the simulator when a lightning bolt hit the school building, leaving them separated from the real world. Shortly after, the kids were pulled out of the simulator after they finished the evaluation. However, their results were beyond impressive with their bio readings and test results that broke the beliefs of many of the doctors and instructors in the academy. As a result, Ayaka became the smartest student in the academy and while she had a lot of knowledge to begin with she was blessed with even more, not to mention how strong she was. A whole new world opened up to her as she can do anything she wanted at her own will. Much like her friends, she visited the academy’s infirmary for weekly checkups on their health, which eventually became monthly up to their graduation.

    With her immense knowledge, she was able to ace every exam that was given to her, showing the teachers and professors at the academy that she deserves the top honors along with her friends, instead of a particular someone who bribed their way through. She shared her knowledge of AG-technology with her friends so that they can pass their classes as well, but they were also blessed with massive knowledge as well, though Ayaka did want to help them regardless. She was also able to pass her physical exams as well with such ease with her friends as well.

    When the invention festival came around during her time at the academy, Ayaka was able to use her knowledge to help Michael, Sora, and Johnathan create the AG-hover boards for each of the eight kids for their inventions while Mizuki, Hitomi, Alexis, and Eric created the Adaptive Flights Suits for each of them, which would go on to be used in the JX350 racing league. When many of the students asked who made the anti-gravity part of the hover board, Ayaka acknowledged that she made that part saying that it was one of the hardest parts to make and replicate for each board. The boards would serve them as a means to get around in their lives.

    Ayaka was still looking for someone to start a family with while at the academy but she didn’t find anyone suitable for her that is until she saw something that interested her. During her time at the academy, one of the top students did a drawing of each interesting student he saw. When he drew her she became interested in him as he continued to draw each student. The artist in question is Eric Patterson, who also fell in love with Ayaka. While she taught him what she knew about AG-technology, Eric taught her how to draw the world around them, objects, and even people. They would go on to be a couple throughout their lives.

    Ayaka Hamasaki graduated from the Good Smile Racing Academy with the highest marks and top honors of the school. This was enough to catch the attention of Jessie Fairbank, the team principle of Auricom Research Industries, who formed a partnership with the academy along with AG-Systems. She saw that Ayaka can be a great pilot for the team with her knowledge that she gained from the academy and her family, who also worked with the company to distribute the technology. She also chose Eric to work alongside with her along with Johnathan, Hitomi, and Setsuko. When they graduated, they were taken to the main Auricom headquarters in America, which was also home of the Auricom Academy. When they got there, the employees and instructors of the Auricom Academy welcomed the five new students to the fold of the junior team. Her family was also proud of her when they were at the academy to distribute AG-technology at the time.

    During her training at the Auricom Academy, Ayaka quickly took note of Auricom’s FX350/400 craft and its statistics. While it had a lot of speed and shielding, it handled poorly overall. Ayaka began to wonder why Auricom built these kinds of ships in the first place if the team was supposed to be a ‘clean’ racing team. From that point forward, she set out to make the ACM-8K better for the JX350 racing league. With the help of Michael Sanderson, Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, Sora Akiyama, and Jessica Caluroso, who were now a part of AG-Systems’ junior team, as well as Johnathan Hale, Eric Patterson, Hitomi Yamaguchi, and Setsuko Tanaka of her junior team, Ayaka was able to strip off a significant amount of weight by dismounting a massive amount of weapon payload on the ship whilst increasing the ship’s acceleration and handling abilities as far as it can go. Of course, she kept the original blueprints and statistics of the ACM-8K in case of Eliminator events. The speed and shielding of the ship was reduced after Ayaka made the adjustments, but it also contributed to the increase in acceleration and handling, making the ship’s stats similar to Mirage’s Scarab-1, albeit a bit thicker than Mirage’s craft. At the end of all of the adjustments, Ayaka and her friends tested the ship at the Belmondo Test Site in Tule Desert of Nevada and the ship began to become its own after the adjustments. Many of the Auricom Academy pilots were astonished to see the ship she flew handled differently than the others when she was able to maneuver the craft so easily. When the trainees asked her, she said that she made adjustments to the ship so that it can handle batter. The other trainees began to ask her for some advice on their ship tuning. This eventually reached the ears of the engineers of Auricom and they were astonished as well to see Ayaka’s ship perform so well when they discovered that she made the adjustments herself. She has said that if Auricom wants to have any chances in winning a gold medal in any future championships or even a championship title, they need to shift their focus away from combating the other teams – particularly Qirex, Goteki, and Triakis – during races and actually try to win races for once. While some of the officials were snappish at her criticism, it was clear for everyone at Auricom to see and many employees and engineers began to change, slowly but surely. Many engineers soon began to consult to her when it came to making future Auricom ships.

    Before the JX350 and FX500 leagues began, Ayaka submitted the new statistics of the ACM-8K that was to be used in the JX350 racing league. There was no new added parts to the craft, but rather it was tuned. The race commission approved of the changes and allowed it for the competition after race authorities inspected the craft themselves. During that time, the professional Auricom racing squad came by the Academy to see and meet the new members that the team acquired. When they arrived at the training grounds of the Academy the leader of the team, Tyrrell Byron, noted that the ACM-8K was performing differently as it was able to navigate through the corners of the test track with such ease. What was it that was making the ship so agile? He soon discovered the answer when one of the trainees told him that someone tuned the ship and he asked the trainee for a name. The trainee replied that a girl by the name of Akaya Hamasaki, who is currently undergoing training on the test track, did all of the tuning and even helped the other trainees tuned their ships. Tyrrell was familiar with the Hamasaki name, as he has met the family in person before. She was like her father, always wanting to help the company so that they can more of an actual racing team and a good company rather than a combat racing team who would use weapons to keep order and make themselves look bad in front of others. She also reminded him of himself as he did a lot of mechanic work back in his younger days. Ayaka had the appearance of her mother and the personality of her father. Tyrrell soon became interested in the young girl and wanted to meet her in person.

    When Ayaka finished her training for the day, Jessie Fairbank wanted the five new junior pilots, Ayaka, Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Setsuko, to meet the professional racing team of Auricom, which included Tyrrell Byron, Rachel Vega, and Tara Shannon. Rachel and Tara were surprised to see Ayaka become an AG-pilot despite coming from an elegant family. Tyrrell however, was impressed to see Ayaka doing what she did best, criticizing Auricom’s way of doing things in the racing leagues and taking necessary steps to better the team, like her father is doing. Even Jessie Fairbank openly admitted that Ayaka reminded her of her father. She fitted perfectly in the team and when she ran an event with Tyrrell at the Amphesium and her skills were on par with the top professional pilots of the racing league today. The professional Auricom team, as well as Jessie herself, were glad to have her as part of the Auricom team.

    When the JX350 came about, her work was clear for everyone to see. The ACM-8K was always somewhere in the top three, able to secure podium finishes throughout the season. The spectators, commenters, and analyzers were astonished that Auricom’s ACM-8K, which was infamous for its poor overall performance, was doing surprisingly well. Many race analyzers began to do their analysis on the changes to Auricom’s ship and noted that its statistics were different from before and began to wonder who or what caused the performance of the Auricom ship to be so good. Soon the answer came along when a young girl named Ayaka Hamasaki tuned the ship to make it perform well. Unlike Triakis, who used the Reverse-Inertia Deceleration System to gain the advantage over the competition over the course of the FX300, Ayaka tuned the ship herself with the help of her friends, a name that the public knows for their technology distribution. Even Rory Pinewood of Qirex knew during his time at the Auricom schools. He has heard the name before and now the name has come up again, but this time a lot more noticeable than before. Even the Brazilian team of Piranha were impressed that a girl at such a young age was able to make the Auricom ship a winner this time around. Some of the Piranha engineers and even some of the junior squad members asked her for advice on tuning their ships. Ayaka examined their old Rockettooth ship and suggested to keep the ship as it is if they wanted the pure speed, or dim the speed down for better handling traits. While Piranha kept their poor handling but high top speed to compete with Icaras, they thanked her for the advice and the team hopes that they can work with her in the future, seeing that Piranha are allies with Auricom.

    Ayaka was also able to score a good amount of gold and silver medals throughout the season. Her piloting skills were well noted, able to navigate the tracks with ease like her friends. She tuned the ships according to each event, using the old tuning setup for Eliminator events and the new setup for other events. While this seemed a lot of work for her, she had no troubles switching setups and was able to do it on the fly as well. That being said, she had some trouble she had to deal with, a pilot in particular. One pilot was harassing her on and off the track by making remarks about her, especially in her Adaptive Flight Suit, which was made by Mizuki Nakajima of AG-Systems and approved by the race commission. That pilot was Petia Romanov, a junior Russian pilot for Qirex. Petia would always make many remarks about her body as well as some of the other girls on the grid, particularly Hitomi of Auricom, Mizuki and Alexis of AG-Systems, and sometimes Scarlett, Yin, and Huan of Goteki 45. Of course, his poor piloting skills meant that he was unable to win the hearts of the girls on the grid. This did not stop his attempts in attempting to win the hearts of the girls however. He was constantly harassing the girls on the gird by making remarks about their bodies. This eventually reached the point where he almost got physical with the girls, particularly with Ayaka, which led her to give him the kick between the legs so hard that he was unable to practice for the next set of races, with Mizuki, Alexis, and HItomi following up. Ayaka followed up and has said to Petia that Eric Patterson of Auricom has already won her heart, with the other girls following suit with their respective boyfriends. This earned Ayaka and her friends the respect of Andrea Santiago of Goteki 45 and has personally admitted that she hopes to see that side of them more often.

    Thanks to her personality, Ayaka was also able to make friends on the track, particularly the Makanian Amazons of Goteki’s junior team, the MAGEC junior team members of Mirage, Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, and Buster Harding of Triakis. The Makanian Amazons, consisting of Scarlett, Yin, and Huan, trained up Ayaka along with her friends during their time off the track, making the kids stronger and a lot more beautiful. Ayaka also was able to help Hafiz and the Raqisas sisters with some technical stuff on their ships and offered piloting advice to the three junior pilots. She also underwent refinement with Buster as he trained her and the other kids to ensure they were ready for anything. Rory was impressed by her successful attempt to change Auricom for the better, despite not liking the team himself. He has admitted that she is the key person that the American team needs for them to change from being ‘stuck-up bastards’ to a team that is actually nice to everyone like Harimau. He has trained her in private Zone Battles with the ‘Bad Boys’ along with Buster Harding to help her gain valuable experience in the new event. Ayaka also helped Mercutian with his Zone techniques, as well as giving him advice on his racing lines so that he can be more consistent. It was also thanks to Alexis of AG-Systems that she made a friend from Harimau, Indian pilot Sekhar Sahib. Despite his deep-seated fear of Auricom, Ayaka and her friends were able to befriend Harimau’s second pilot and have been seen training together to tackle the most technical Zone track, Pro Tozo, after he witnessed her and Alexis tackle the track with ease without breaking a single sweat. To this day, he is friends with the junior pilots of Auricom.

    Ayaka is also a member of the Miracle Eight, a group of teens who pulled off impossible feats and comebacks under insurmountable circumstances. The group consists of Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora of AG-Systems, as well as Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and herself of Auricom. Along with the Makanian Amazons, the Miracle Eight were the most attractive looking pilots on the grid. Of all of the members of the Miracle Eight, Ayaka was the smartest one of them all, able to work out some of the most complex problems thrown at her, not to mention how attractive she is. She is also a couple with Eric Patterson and have been seen together frequently and both have gone on saying that the two are going to marry and start a family in the future.

    Ayaka and the her friends of the Auricom Academy junior racing team were practicing in both tune-ups for the Auricom ships when the JX350 came to Metropia for the Rapier series when Polina Petrov appeared again, this time as a pilot for Tigron Enterprises. Ayaka was glad that she kept the original craft setup when Tigron came along as she knew that they would do a lot of damage on the track. This was apparent during the race of infamy at Metropia Reverse, where many teams were eliminated and many pilots from their respective teams were injured, with Petia of Qirex being the most severe of them all along with Maksim of Triakis. Both pilots were rushed to the hospital thanks to Johnathan and Michael. Ayaka on the other hand was able to rescue Jacinto Madeira out of his Piranha ship and get him to the hospital, who thanked her for rescuing him from his ship. While he was out for three weeks, he wasn’t badly injured to the point where he would be out of the season. Zack Vilmã, team principle of Piranha, thanked her for rescuing Jacinto before his injury could get worse. Joes Peteers of Assegai and chief medic pilot also thanked her for pitching in on rescuing the injured pilots. When Ayaka saw Petia in the hospital, who suffered third degree burns on every part of his body, including his family jewels, which surprisingly survived, she felt very sorry for the poor fellow, who was now out for the remainder of the season and unable to fly for the rest of his life.

    Ayaka began to keep dibs on Tigron from that point forward and with Polina as their pilot, it would be a chore during the rest of the season. Polina then began to spread false information and lies about her rivals, particularly the Miracle Eight and targeted Ayaka as a ‘greedy girl with no respect or feelings towards others’ despite the fact that Ayaka was the opposite of what Polina said. Despite being an utter lie, Polina continued to provoke the Miracle Eight in many ways possible, though this was not to be successful until the Rapier Series tournament. With Tigron on the track, they began to cause a lot of damage to anyone who opposed them. This was apparent during the Rapier Series tournament when Polina targeted the spectators with her Cannon and injured the scornful spectators, along with some young racing fans, when they began to ridicule her for hurting the pilots to win a race and spreading false information, though Joes Peeters was on site in an active ambulance shuttle to get the injured out of harm’s way. However, this was enough for Ayaka, along with Alexis of AG-Systems and Scarlett of Goteki, to let the leashes off of their aggression. The three teamed up to eliminate Polina’s ship from existence, utilizing every weapon they got their hands on, with support from the other junior members as well, who weren’t happy with Polina after what she did to them. During the race, Ayaka, along with the other members of the Miracle Eight and the Makanian Amazons found a crack within the hull of Tigron’s ship. However, Ayaka discovered something else that was in the works of the ship. It contained technology that was deemed illegal to the race commission, yet it was concealed so well that nobody noticed it, except for the eleven junior pilots who saw it. An artificial intelligence was giving the Tigron Bull ship automatic shield energy regeneration, similar to Auricom’s old prototype ship back in 2048. How did the Bull ship pass so many inspections and not discovering the AI in Tigron’s only ship was anyone’s guess. Unfortunately, Ayaka was unable to convince the race authorities that the Bull ship was illegal by breaching multiple regulations, so she began to look for answers to destroy the Bull ship the hard way. She soon found the answer and got her friends and the other junior members of their teams together to destroy the ship when they were in Las Vegas for the Phantom Series.

    Most of the other junior members were baffled when Ayaka explained her findings, but soon found out about her findings during the races at the Amphiesum race track and began to believe her. The others then began to work with her and her friends to destroy the ship at Tech De Ra. Once the plan was set, the other junior members continued on with their business at the Amphiesum and would put the plan into action when the race moves to Tech De Ra, located in Arizona. Ayaka on the other hand, enjoyed the popularity that she and her friends have built up. With many anxious fans wanting an autograph from the Miracle Eight, she became very popular and she has signed many autographs and she was in many photo shoots while at the Amphiesum.

    When the final race of the Phantom Series tournament came about, she was at the sidelines to get rid of the AI and make the Tigron Bull ship vulnerable. After hacking into the ship and deleting the AI, the other teams were able to destroy the ship, with Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems landing the final blow. Many of the other junior members thanked her for the findings on the ship and suggested to let the race commission know that Tigron was cheating during both the Rapier and Phantom series. She managed to get the blueprints for the Tigron Bull ship as well as the shield regenerating technology it used from the team, as well as the BSV’s involvement in creating it and submitted them to the race commission so that they can ban the team and their sponsor for good. With Tigron and their sponsor, the BSV, dismantled and out of the picture, Ayaka went on to participate in the season finale of the JX350 racing league, helping her team to gain one last gold medal of the season and lifted the first ever JX350 cup along with her friends.

    Ayaka is the brains of the Miracle Eight, helping her group of friends as well as some of the allies she made on the paddock, not to mention how attractive she is. It was thanks to her that Auricom Academy did so well in the JX350 and many engineers from AG-Systems, Auricom, and even Piranha soon turned to her for advice on making future ships for future racing seasons. Along with Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Setsuko, Ayaka is one of the few people to change Auricom forever. And much like her father, she plans to continue to push the company in the right direction to make Auricom a much better company and racing team publically. In the meantime, she hopes to marry Eric Patterson from the same team and start a family to continue her heritage.

    Bio

    Every racing team is going to need a test pilot or two. Whenever you need to test a new ship or a new tune-up, someone is going to be needed to ensure that the ships work properly and for safety purposes. AG-Systems’ Jason Croshaw is one such test pilot, who has been with the team since their reformation and is still a development pilot to this day, but others such as Malatya Radovan of Assegai and Lauren Taylor of Triakis are good examples of test pilots who recently stepped up into the professional series. While Auricom has run many tests on their ships, there was no official test pilot for the team. That is until a set of Auricom engineers just happened to turn up with one. Setsuko Tanaka is the test pilot of Auricom, as well as the junior pilot for the racing team, who has raced alongside the Miracle Eight of both AG-Systems and Auricom and has changed the latter forever.

    Setsuko was born in Osaka of Japan. Her family are currently engineers working for Auricom Research Industries in Japan. The family was one of the few people responsible for working on Auricom’s newest craft, the ACM-9K0, with better thrust and handling abilities compared to their previous ship the ACM-8K. Despite making such a successful craft, there was no official test pilot for the team and many officials began to look for someone to test the craft. However, there was nobody willing to help the team to test the craft. However, the Tanaka family happened to turn up a test pilot to test the ship, their daughter Setsuko.

    Setsuko began to use AG-technology at a young age, able to ride antigravity scooters with ease and was able to create simple pieces of AG-technology. The mother and father of the family soon brought their daughter to the Auricom facility in Japan and as they were working, she was found wandering about in the facility, eventually visiting the testing grounds for the ACM-9K0. After many visits, it was clear that she was interested in the ship. The family recommended to the Auricom officials to have her test the ship and they did. Setsuko got her piloting license at a young age and she was seen testing the ship whenever she can. It was also clear that she can fly the ship with such finesse, taking the ship past its limits. The family then decided to help her learn the art of racing.

    Setsuko’s family learns that a new academy has opened up in Tokyo, the Good Smile Racing Academy, designed to help students learn the art of AG-racing at a young age. The family soon became interested in the new academy and with their recommendation they sent their daughter to the academy to help her learn the art of racing. When the first initial evaluation came about, Setsuko passed with flying colors, giving her a seat in the academy. She was quick to make a friend in the academy, Jessica Caluroso. The two soon took the second initial evaluation together and both passed with flying colors and the two became the top students of the academy along with eight other students who befriended them in the academy later on.

    Setsuko then went on to pass her classes and exams in the Good Smile Racing Academy alongside Jessica. The two soon made friends with the other top students of the academy. The American students Michael Sanderson, Johnathan Hale, Alexis Anderson, and Eric Patterson. And the Japanese students Mizuki Nakajima, Hitomi Yamaguchi, Sora Akiyama, and Ayaka Hamasaki. The ten students were soon involved in a collaboration to bring down the school’s bully, Polina Petrov, who is responsible for stealing the valuables of the school’s students, including her friends. It was thanks to her that she was able to help them get their valuables back. She also helped them in getting their official piloting licenses so that they can fly in antigravity ships for racing and private purposes.

    Setsuko graduated with excellent marks and top honors and soon earned the attention of Jessie Fairbank, team principle of Auricom, who knows her very well. Jessie, along with team principle of AG-Systems, Sakura Tanaku, made a one season partnership with the Good Smile Racing Academy to promote the new academy that opened up. In turn, the two teams would bring along the top ten students of the academy for their teams, five for each team. She immediately recruited Setsuko along with Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Ayaka to round out her Auricom junior team, Auricom Academy. Sakura on the other hand recruited Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, Sora, and Jessica to round out her junior team, Friends in Speed. Setsuko returned to America to train up for the inaugural season of the JX350 junior racing league.

    As Setsuko was a test pilot for the ACM-9K0, a lot of Auricom officials were expecting her to get used to the ACM-8K quickly. However, the ACM-8K was heavier than its successor and handled poorly than the newer ship. Getting used to the older ship would be a daunting task, however, she had just the right friend to help her with that. Ayaka Hamasaki just happened to have the same issue with the ACM-8K and she set out to make the ship better. Setsuko joined her and after many tune-ups and testing, courtesy of Setsuko’s prior experience of testing many of Auricom’s race craft, they were able to make the craft race ready and within regulations after running many tests on the ship. It was clear that their hard work paid off and the newly tuned ACM-8K was able to maneuver a lot more easily thanks to the tune-up when tested on the Belmondo Test Site, located in Nevada, astonishing many of the trainees and engineers that witnessed the five new recruits pilot the ship. The ACM-8K performed very well and with Ayaka running diagnostics and tune-ups on the ship and with Setsuko doing the testing, the two, along with their friends, became popular amongst the Auricom team, catching the attention of the professional pilots of the team, Tyrrell Barron, Rachel Vega, and Tara Shannon, who were impressed by her preseason performance. After running a special event at the Amphesium, located in Las Vegas, Nevada as an extension, Setsuko was placed as a wingman for the Auricom junior racing team.

    Setsuko’s first event during the JX350 was a Zone Battle on Vineta K, located on the man-made island of Makana in the Pacific Islands, where she scored her first bronzed medal off the get-go, followed up by a silver and eventually a gold at Talon’s Junction, despite the Concordia Loop Accident that happened before her Time Trial run. She went on to win a variety of medals and a good amount of season points for her team throughout the season. While not racing, she took part in many ship tests for Auricom to test out some of their newest technology. Ayaka also collaborated with her to ensure that the new fleet of Auricom ships were able to be handled properly and are safe to fly. As a result, Setsuko did not take part in tournament events and the Virtual series to do various tests on the Auricom’s new fleet of ships. However, like Jessica of AG-Systems, she was able to experience Auricom’s new ships before anyone else did. Things were looking good for Setsuko and her team that is until a dark name reappeared.

    When the Rapier series came about, Tigron made their entry back into the junior leagues, along with their sponsor, the BSV, who held a ceremony to celebrate the occasion and showed off their lead, and only, pilot of the junior team, Polina Petrov, who she clearly remembers back at the Good Smile Racing Academy, albeit not a very good one. Thankfully, she shared her relief with everyone else as Polina didn’t fare so well outside Single Race and Eliminator events, although it would be clear that she would be a threat in those events and the threat became clear during the race at Metropia Reverse when Polina eliminated half of the grid, resulting in many injured pilots and destroyed ships. In response to the escalating situation, Setsuko was able to redirect all emergency personnel to the functional Netika Ambulance Shuttles and redirected all air traffic to get the ambulances to many of the injured people around the city to hospitals. It was thanks to her and her band of friends that many people and pilots were saved on that day. Joes Peeters has said that many people on that day were saved thanks to their efforts. But Polina would still prove to be a troublesome person to deal with. With Polina and Tigron on the track, some of the Auricom team shifted their focus on combating the new threat. However, Setsuko and her friends kept doing what they did best and she was able to keep her focus during her races and was able to keep Polina away from the podium whenever she could.

    During the junior leagues, Setsuko made many friends aside from the friends she made back at the academy. The Makanian Amazons of Goteki team, the MAGEC junior team of Mirage, the Amazon Fury of Piranha, Mercutian De Gautet of Van-Uber, and Buster Harding of Triakis’ professional team were the friends she made on the paddock, sharing piloting advice and helping other with maintaining their ships. She was also one of the very few people to help celebrate the Mirages Junior team and Mercutian De Gautet’s first podium finish during the junior series. The junior members of their respective teams also teamed up with her to combat Polina and Tigron on the track. It was thanks to their combined efforts that they were able to keep Polina away from the top step for the most part and discovered a weakness in the Tigron Bull ship. Setsuko soon managed to gather as much data as possible and relay them to the other junior team members when they met at an undisclosed location at Las Vegas, Nevada. Along with Jessica, the two sent data to each of the other members of their respective teams and coordinate the offensive on Tigron and Polina, and with Michael Sanderson landing the final blow on Tigron’s ship, the team and their sponsor, the BSV, were dismantled after their ban from the AG-racing sport. It was just like old times back at the academy.

    Like Jessica, Setsuko did not take part in the Season Finale Tournament of the first JX350 season, but she did run many tests on the ACM-8K to help the Auricom team take one last gold medal of the season and lift the first ever JX350 cup. Auricom have been turning to Setsuko ever since she and Ayaka have been giving the team’s line of ships the attention it needed from combating the ‘banes’ of antigravity racing to a legitimate racing team. It was thanks to them that Auricom have been undergoing a lot of changes to better themselves and when it came to testing new ships. No longer just a mere test pilot, Setsuko has stepped up from being a test pilot to a junior pilot with a future in racing and looks to take it to the next level in future seasons and eventually the professional leagues.

    Chapter 11 - Intermission


    As the three men examined the first ten bios before them, Tarvus took interest in the ten bios that he and his colleagues were reading as he carefully examined them with curiosity.

    (Tarvus) “Interesting.”
    (Krystian) “What is it?”
    (Tarvus) “These ten pilots have made a huge impact on the racing community at such a young age, though the Miracle Eight are the stars of the junior racing community right now. Will they be continuing to race in the junior leagues?”
    (Krystian) “Of course. They’ll be ready for the professional leagues after the next season if they choose to go into the pro leagues.”
    (Tarvus) “Very well. What about the others?”
    (Krystian) “It’s a mixed bag. Some are staying for the next season, whiles some of the others will be continuing to work for their respective teams but won’t be racing for them for the rest of their careers. The others are leaving the racing leagues.”
    (Tarvus) “The Quantax bunch I’m presuming?
    (Editor) “Correct sir. Due to the lead pilot’s severe injuries, he is unable to fly for the remainder of his life, the other two left to assist him. This leaves a bunch of spots open for the other teams to fill gaps for fresh pilots.”
    (Tarvus) “Will these fresh pilots be coming from the Good Smile Racing Academy that the ten students came from?”
    (Editor) “Most of them, yes. Though Mirage, EG-X, Triakis, Van-Uber, and Goteki 45 will be keeping their current pilot line-up.”
    (Tarvus) “I see. Very well, let us have a look at the Goteki pilots then we’ll move on to Triakis.”
    (Editor) “What about Van-Uber?”
    (Tarvus) “No need. They’ve been in the junior leagues for quite some time now. I’m already familiar with them and their lead pilot Mercutian De Gautet. Let us move on to Goteki 45.”
    (Editor) “Yes sir.”

    The editor began to move his hands in swiping motions to bring up the next set of profiles before him and the race commissioners as they examined them.

    Bio

    On June 6th 2204, a storm hit a cruise line as well as a number of other public and private boats that was on its way to Makana and various other countries. The news exploded across the globe as many rescue teams from America, Hawaii, Makana, Australia, China, and Japan utilized AG-craft made attempts to get to the scene, but severe storms and high risks of lightning hitting an AG-craft caused more problems and prevented them from going any further. When the storm cleared a month later, the rescue teams began to look for any survivors. Unfortunately, no survivors were found near or in the sunken ship or its immediate area or any of the other smaller boats that were caught in the storm and within three weeks the search was called off, fearing and assuming the worst fates for the people who got caught in the storm. However, seven year later, three survivors of the storm was found on an uninhabited island miles away from the sunken ship’s resting place. One of the girls, who had pink hair, light blue eye, with a body of a model, was Scarlett Arekuruu, the future prodigy and lead pilot for Goteki 35, Goteki 45’s junior racing team.

    Scarlett Arekuruu was the only daughter of the Japanese American family, consisting of a Japanese husband and an American wife, who lived in Kauai of the Hawaiian Islands located in the Pacific. Her family were fisherman who regularly went out to sea to catch some of the finest fish to sell on the markets back in Hawaii. Senshi was destined to be a fisher like her family, but fate had other bright ideas. On May 6th 2204, the family booked a trip to Makana so that they can sell their fish to the citizens there and a month later, the family sold their home to move to Makana. Makana was becoming the hub of the fishing market since the island’s regeneration for the FX300 and more fishermen were selling their fish there thanks to the increasing demand. Her family was moving to Makana to stay with the fishing market and get a big profit off of it. However, halfway to their destination, a storm suddenly appeared and the ship that she and her family were on ended up flipping over. It is unclear to this day if there were any survivors, but most presumed the worst for everyone onboard. Seven years, three weeks, and three days later on June 30th 2211, a private cruise ship spotted an SOS beacon and made its way to the uninhabited island. Soon the owner of the cruise ship found the girl and her friends on the beach and immediately responded. The man that got them off the island was none other than Keao Manumaleuna, the team principle of Goteki 45, who went on a private cruise during the day he saw the SOS signal.

    Scarlett, along with her friends, were soon helped on board with the help of the crew and set off to Makana. Keao, who gave the girls some clothes to wear after being without them for seven years, wanted to know how she lasted for so long on the uninhabited island and she responded with this:

    (Scarlett) “We were able to navigate our way around the island after a couple of weeks of exploring it, while learning some history there. We also took advantage of the ripe fruits and killed some predators that tried to kill us on the island and in the ocean.”
    (Keao) “How did you three get together?”
    (Scarlett) “We crossed paths on the island. We are pretty much family and made the island our home as well.”
    (Keao) “You three are very bold girls, especially lasting for so long without anything to keep your bodies covered.”
    (Scarlett) “We learned to live without our stuff. After all, it feels nice when the breeze touches your body.”

    He then asked if she had a home or family, but Scarlett said that her family sold their only home and that her family was lost in the storm seven years ago, much like her friends. Keao Manumaleuna then helped her and her friends compensate for their loss and helped them find a temporary home on Makana when they got there so that they can get the materials necessary to make the island they were on their permanent home. News channels exploded around the world when word got to their ears when someone survived the storm seven years ago and many reporters, journalists, and interviewers became interested in them. But Keao wanted them to get used to the world that has changed over the last seven years before she and her friends can go out on her own and do their own thing. One day, during the FX350, he introduced the girls to AG-racing that was going on in Vertica, a racing track located in the Cayman Islands. It was then that Scarlett and the others took interest in AG-racing and Mr. Manumaleuna continued to show the girls some of the races going around the globe. He finally asked if the girls were interested in AG-racing and if they wanted a career in racing and with an acknowledgement from the girls, he was glad to help them get started on their AG-racing career.

    During the FX400 when AG-racing went international and the Goteki team was traveling across the globe, the girls underwent training from some of the instructors of Goteki 45. Most notable of them to Scarlett was Noelai Kekumu, Goteki 45’s third and backup pilot for the FX racing league. While she was their backup pilot, she taught Scarlett and the others how to fly the Goteki ships and Scarlett soon found herself on some of the racing tracks around Makana to test what she has learned from Noelai. She admitted that she was nervous at first, since it was her first time flying as she was getting used to the quick and sensitive acceleration of the Goteki ships, but then after a few laps and test runs, she began to build confidence and bravery with every lap and eventually began to pull off some of the fastest times in the slightly heavier than normal ships, even pulling off barrel rolls under dangerous circumstances during races against other trainees. She even wanted to try the higher speed classes so that she can get a feel for them, even without prior experience. Her bravery and boldness were noted and she was getting better every lap on the track in every speed class. Within four years of training, Scarlett went from a girl that was afraid of heights and water to one of Goteki’s prodigies and their wildcard, one of their best pilots they’ve seen in years. Despite learning everything and mastering what she has learned from her instructor, she unfortunately would have to go through the JX junior racing league first in order for her to graduate to the professional series. Completing multiple seasons well in the junior leagues would allow her to graduate to the professional FX series, though Tauban Ferrai, lead pilot of the Goteki 45 professional racing team who also trained the girls alongside with Noelai and Andrea during offseason, has said she can quickly become one of the best pilots in Goteki’s history.

    With her position secured in the JX350, Scarlett continued to practice and perfect her skills for the upcoming league during practice and offseason. During her vacation time, she and her friends would visit the island that was once her home for seven years using a AG-craft that she bought and they would always bring tools and equipment to the island, renovating the ancient temple that remained on the island for many year, the place has become their home ever since. She would pick ripe fruit from the trees that she took care of during her time on the island and bring them back for her friends and some of the Goteki personnel back in Makana as well as a couple of ferrets to give to children. She and her friends have been bombarded with interviewers, journalist, and reporters one after another as she has responded to each and every one of them with many questions she has answered, making her one of the more popular girls since Farah Al-Qasimi became the most successful female Arabic pilot, along with some of the other girls that have entered the JX350 league.

    When the junior league began, Scarlett got off to a good start with her team, scoring her first medal of the season, a bronze. However, despite her training and some bold moves she pulls off from time to time, Scarlett would sometimes get overconfident during critical moments in race events. As a result, she remained in the mid-pack often throughout the season, but it didn’t mean she’d be there all season. Every once in a while, she would make a risky move and capitalize on her rival’s mistakes, resulting in three gold medals and one silver, along with many other bronze medals. While she didn’t win them all, she was making the most out of every opportunity, pulling off bold and clever barrel rolls in unexpected places – which sometimes anger Sibrand Van Saur of Icaras – as well as a number of perfect laps where it counted. Her weapon skills were also noted. Thanks to the training from Tauban Ferrai and Andrea Santiago on the weapon systems, she was able to hold her own in Eliminator events.

    Unlike Icaras and some of the Auricom officials and fans, who have already dismissed Goteki as a bane of the racing leagues’ existence, others Auricom officials, especially Jessie Fairbacnk, many racing fans, and the other teams welcomed the newer members of Goteki with open arms thanks to Noelai Kekumu, who has made attempts to make ‘seize fire’ agreements between Goteki, Icaras, and Auricom. Scarlett and her friends have become friends with the Friends in Speed junior racing team of AG-Systems and Auricom Academy, as well as MAGEC of Mirage, all of which have become invaluable friends to Scarlett and her friends. Despite some of Noelai’s successful attempts to pacify the rivalries between the other teams, the British team still had their bitter feelings against Goteki and have targeted the Goteki 35 junior racing team during the JX350 racing league. However, thanks to Scarlett’s training, as well as her friend’s, the Horus Rising junior team was unable to destroy the Goteki ships and the Goteki team would always come out on top in every race against them.

    Scarlett often invited her friends to join her in some unique training on her home island, where she was once stranded on eight years ago. She would use the AG-craft that she bought to help her friends to the island. What kind of training she set up for her friends and what training they went though is unknown, but by the looks of her friends and herself, the training paid off, beautifully. They have gotten more beautiful, stronger physically and mentally, and their endurance skyrocketed as well. This caught the eyes of many fans and many of them soon took pictures of the model-like members of the Miracle Eight and the Makanian Amazons, making them the most attractive pilots on the circuit. The eleven pilots have soon been seen in many fashion and model magazines, making the pilots the most popular out of all of the junior pilots on the racing grid.

    Scarlett was soon given the biggest test of her life when Tigron finally showed up during the Rapier Series, with a pilot of their own. When Bulgarian Polina Petrov arrived, Scarlett noted that aside from her rash behavior, something was off. Xiu Bai of EG-X, along with Zhen Guan and Xue Lee, have noted and have said that Polina was augmented. The real question is how was she augmented, but Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems has said that her eyes were off, saying that they were red instead of pale blue after seeing the girl many times in person. When the infamous race at Metropia Reverse came about, Goteki 45 was one of the few surviving teams on the track, along with AG-Systems, Auricom, and Mirage, when Polina destroyed the other teams’ ships. Scarlett rescued Xiu Bai after her ship was destroyed and Alqamar was able to pick up Mercutian when his ship was destroyed. Scarlett then flew her ship to where both Triakis’ and Qirex’s ships were when they were destroyed and Scarlett then made her way to Johnathan to rescue Petia Romanov of Qirex, who was stuck in his burning ship as it was burning him. Johnathan was able to pull out Petia after Scarlett doused the flames of the ship using an extinguisher she acquired from her own. She then returned with Xiu to drop her off with her team. Scarlett, along with her friends, were famed for saving the lives of the pilots who were injured and getting them to the hospital in Kyoto in time when the ambulance shuttles were disabled by an EMP shockwave, save the empty podium with only Polina standing at the top step.

    As a result of this, Scarlett began to train herself up, along with her friends, to combat Polina and Tigron. The training paid off and they were able to hold her off to prevent her from getting the top step for the remainder of the Rapier series. The series also revealed a crack in Tigron’s armored ship, which the Goteki team took note. Scarlett then was able to get as much information as possible on the Tigron ship to destroy the heavy armadillo thanks to the Miracle Eight, who also discovered the crack in the armored craft. She was one of the very first people on their invite list when the junior racing league came to Las Vegas near the Amphiesum race track for the Phantom Series. She, along with the Miracle Eight, the Xios junior racing team, and the other junior teams, planned out the strategy to destroy the Tigron ship. Their plan wasn’t put into action until the Phantom series tournament to keep the Tigron engineers in the blue about the Achilles' heel of the ship. It wasn’t until the last race of the tournament when the weakness was revealed for everyone to see and soon every team began to target the ship and its weak point. Along with Johnathan, Scarlett was able to tear a big hole in the ship when they both dropped a bomb and minefield at the first corner of Tech De Ra Reverse on the third to last lap, with Michael dealing the final blow to the ship. With a smile, Scarlett was happy to see the Tigron team go after she got word that the team had no choice to drop out of the league which was soon followed with their downfall, along with the BSV, who sponsored the team in various vile ways. She then finished the Phantom Series tournament with a bronze for the team and went on to compete in the Final Tournament of the season, winning a silver medal and leaving a good mark in the season.

    While Goteki 45 didn’t take the junior league this season, they are happy with the results that Scarlett and her junior team have created and would like to have her in the junior leagues once again. The Makanian Amazons and the Miracle Eight have been given a couple of words that described them the best. Beauty and Gracefulness. The eleven pilots have become popular globally and have been seen on the race circuit frequently. They have been bombarded with many requests for interviews from many popular sources all over the world and they’ve have accepted them all. The pilots, and even Scarlett, tend to keep their popularity at its peak during their time on the track.

    Bio

    Many pilots that have come from China have flown for their home team, merged with Xios of Finland EG-X Technologies. It has been a common sight to see a Chinese team to fly only for their home country along with some other pilots from around the world. No Chinese pilot has yet to fly for another team, until the JX350 league came about when a young Chinese pilot flew for the yellow, pink, and white Makana team. Yin Ruan is the only Chinese pilot so far in racing history to fly for another team besides EG-X Technologies and has done so with success under her belt.

    Yin Ruan was originally from Hong Kong, but she never intended to be an AG-pilot to begin with. She was born in a middle class family who intended to move to Makana. Her parents, while they used AG-technology, were not interested in the Anti-Gravity racing scene and didn’t plan for their daughter to go race. She would be an ordinary girl who would grow up to be a normal person, but fate had better ideas. During her move to Makana, the cruise ship that was carrying Yin and her family was caught in a storm along with many other boats in the area. Rescue teams from nearby countries such as United States, China, Japan, and even Korea went to the rescue. However, the severe storms kept the rescue teams in check and they were unable to attempt a navigation through the storms. When the storm cleared, there were no signs of life within the area and many were presumed dead.

    Years later however, three survivors were found on a nearby island island along with a SOS beacon and one man just happened to respond to it during his private cruise. The man who rescued the three survivors – Yin, along with her new friends and family, Scarlett and Hyun – was Keao Manumaleuna, the team head of the resurrected Goteki 45. The three were brought on board and taken to Makana, where they would get back to living normal lives in civilization. Soon though, they would find a suitable career. During the FX400, when AG-racing went international, Keao Manumeleuna showed Yin and the girls some of the racing that was going on around the world. Yin was hesitant at first but soon showed interest in the sport. As the FX400 was drawing to a close, she became interested in racing and she was more than happy to race for Manumeleuna after he rescued her. He then got the girls in flight training for Makana’s AG-racing team, Goteki 45. The girls were soon put under the wings of Goteki’s third pilot for the professional racing team of Goteki, Noelai Kekumu, for extensive training for the upcoming junior racing league, the JX350.

    While Goteki are known for their aggressive racing, Noelai took a different approach for Scarlett, Yin, and Hyun. She put racing cleanly first and using aggressive methods for winning last and only if necessary as she wanted the team to be a much friendlier team in the public’s eye. Each of the girls took her lessons well and they became some of the best students during their training. Of course, they were given lessons on weapon usage from lead pilot Tauban Ferrai and second pilot Andrea Santiago in case they were put in events that weapons were involved. At the end of their training, Yin, along with Hyun, were placed as secondary pilots where Yin would take on Time Trial and Detonator events while Hyun would take part in Zone and Zone Battle Events. Scarlett on the other hand was given the lead pilot seat for Single Race and Eliminator events.

    When Yin started racing for the first time officially, she didn’t win a medal until Talon’s Junction Forward, where she won two bronze medals in Time Trial and Detonator. Some people were suspecting that she was having a rough start. It wasn’t until Modesto Heights, located in Makana, where she finally made one of her biggest accomplishments, scoring her first gold medal in Time Trial on the home island. It was a start to her momentum that she finally built up. While she didn’t score many podium finishes, she was giving her competition something to think about, especially Richie Abram of Icaras, who challenged her by attempting to beat her Time Trial records and Detonator scores in which Yin came out on top in every event. Surprisingly enough, nobody at EG-X weren’t bothered that someone from their home country was racing for another team. While EG-X were one of Goteki’s rivals, the junior teams from both sides didn’t seem to be bothered by this at all. They went their own ways of doing things on the track. However, Yin kept her eye on the Chinese/Finland team just in case.

    While Yin has made a rival on the track, she has made many friends. The junior members of AG-Systems and Auricom – eight of which would soon become known as the Miracle Eight, consisting of Michael Sanderson, Mizuki Nakajima, Alexis Anderson, and Sora Akiyama of AG-Systems, and Johnathan Hale, Hitomi Yamaguchi, Eric Patterson, and Ayaka Hamasaki of Auricom – were quick to befriend Yin and her friends, sometimes meeting up for private but friendly races, as well as trading advice on how to tackle some of the tracks around the world. She and her friends also befriended the junior members of Mirage and shared their knowledge with each other. During her off time, she trained alongside her friends on the private island that she, Scarlett, and Hyun met for the first time as well as enjoying public fame across the globe as one of the more attractive junior pilots on the grid and has been seen along with her friends on many fashion magazines and photo shoots. Yin also kept an eye on the competition and made sure that they wouldn’t do anything suspicious, but her instincts also told her that someone would come and attempt to ruin everything she, her friends, and everyone stood for. And unfortunately, her worst fears came true.

    During the start of the Rapier Series, a black name in Anti-Gravity racing history returned to the grid, Tigron Enterprises. As well as their return to the grid a pilot with bad history has also joined their cause, Polina Petrov. Yin suspected that she was up to no good and Polina’s first race and her eventual first gold medal in her first Eliminator event showed that. This would escalate into the Race of Infamy when Polina eliminated half of the grid at the Metropia race track located in Japan. Lucky enough, Yin was able to get on the comms after the EMP went off and was able to help guide her friends through the remainder of the race. However, it became clear that Polina was up to no good and would do whatever it took to win a race for her team, even if it meant hurting others in the process. Yin would have to keep a firm eye on her in every race. This was especially daunting when she was taking part in events herself. Thankfully, Polina’s racing skills without weapons were not so great and Yin was at least beating her in every event. However, it became clear that Polina was keeping an eye on her as well. It was a matter of who can outsmart who. Yin would keep a clear eye on Polina’s actions from that point forward and would soon discover a weakness that would contribute to Polina’s downfall.

    During the final race at Ubermall during the Rapier tournament, Yin discovered a weak point in the infamously armored Tigron Bull craft. However, she also discovered that Tigron were indeed cheating by using banned technology in races. While she did make an attempt to notify the race commission, Ayaka Hamasaki of Auricom also made an attempt to do so. Unfortunately for both of them, they were unable to convince them otherwise. The two then worked with each other and along with their friends to bring down the craft. Yin was able to get as much information as she could on the Bull ship and with that information, she and her friends were able to set up a plan to bring down the so-called ‘indestructible’ craft. With Yin providing up-to-date info on the Bull ship’s status during the final tournament race at Tech De Ra, Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems was able to bring down the Bull ship, with the help of the other junior members of their respective teams. Yin was then able to get all of the data on the Bull ship using the banned technology and, with the help of the other junior members of their teams, she was able to successfully submit them to the race commission. Tigron and their sponsor the BSV were permanently banned from the sport and later dismantled. While Yin was glad that they were gone, Polina on the other hand could still be out in the world somewhere, and Yin would have to keep an eye out for her just in case she would get involved again. Yin then participated in the first season finale of the JX350 racing league tournament and was able to take home a silver.

    Yin has shown that while she hasn’t made any big achievements consistently, she was able to make them count where it should. As the only Chinese pilot racing for Goteki, she would continue to race as long as she could, for her friends and for herself. At the same time, she would keep an eye out for any suspicious activities on the track, in the crowd, or even on the race commission or commentators. After all, anything could happen from this point forward and only Yin would know what to do if disaster struck again. She would be there to put an end to it and keep on-going peace on the track.

    Bio

    In the world of AG-racing, a Korean is a rare sight. Ever since the boom of AG-technology, Korea have been having a hard time keeping up with the technology boom. While Korea still exists, they have yet to put a racing team together to compete against the other established teams. As a result, some Koreans have been venturing out of their home country to get a taste of AG-racing. One such Korean is Park So-Gun, who is currently flying for the European team of FEISAR. While not the most successful, he has graduated from the junior leagues and now flies professionally for the blue, yellow, and white team. However, if there was another Korean to fly that has as much talent as him or can even surpass him, it would be Hyun Gim, the Korean junior pilot who looks to take to the next level in the pro series after a rough, but good showing in the first JX350 season.

    Hyun Gim was born in Seoul of South Korea, a city which is barely keeping up with the growing Anti-Gravity that is spreading worldwide and is the biggest and most technological city of Korea. With most of the world enjoying the massive boom of technology however, the city is easily overshadowed. As a result, many citizens would prefer to leave the country in search for better living elsewhere in the world. Hyun Gim’s family were just the family to leave their home country and move to either the United States or to Japan. The family chose the former and soon found themselves on a moderate sized boat to the US. But fate decided to change Hyun’s life in many ways.

    During their trip to the US, their boat was caught in a massive storm that also managed to catch of the other cruise lines and boats within its immediate vicinity. As a result, most of the people on them were wiped out along with their respective boats. As some of the nations of the world attempted a rescue mission, the storm disallowed them to go into the storm, making any rescue attempt impossible. When the storm cleared a month later, there were no signs of any survivors near the wreckage of ships that were swept in the storm. The world feared for the worst case scenario for the people caught in the storm. However, seven years later, there were three survivors found on an uninhabited island miles away from the storm site. The survivors – Hyun Gim, Yin Ruan, and Scarlett Arekuruu – were rescued by the man who resurrected the Makanian team of Goteki 45 and is the team principle to this day. That man was Keao Manumaleuna, who went out on a private cruise and found the girls’ SOS beacon.

    With her family lost in the storm, Hyun was left with barely anything to live with. Thankfully, Keao was able to compensate her and the girls and find them a new home and get them the necessary items and provisions needed to live on their own. At the same time, he wanted to show the girls some of the racing that was happening around the globe during the FX400. It was then that the girls and Hyun grew interested in the racing sport and with Manumaleuna’s help, they soon found themselves in training pilot suits to get ready for the upcoming junior racing league, the JX350. The trio of girls were paired up with pilot instructor and third pilot of Goteki 45, who replaced former third pilot Park So-Gun, Noelai Kekumu. She taught the girls what they needed to know about racing and personally trained the three girls up for competition. Aggression was the last thing she wanted to teach to the girls but Tauban Ferrai, lead pilot of Goteki, along with the approval of Andrea Santiago, Goteki’s second pilot, set the girls in weapons training as well. Racing without weapons usage came first and they would only be used if other teams began to target them. However, Hyun Gim would be a secondary pilot pilot for Zone and Zone Battle events so weapons would be a non-factor to her, but she would still have to keep an eye on the competition.

    As expected from the race analysts, Hyun got off to a shaky start during the JX350 season. She would get close to a podium finish, but it would just be out of her reach. Despite her hard work, she was unable to score a single medal in the Venom Series – though she did gain a bronze medal for her team getting third place during the Venom Tournament. Yin had the same shaky start as Hyun, but she would win her first bronze medal at Moa Therma during the Flash Series. Hyun wasn’t able to score a medal during the Venom Series nor the first half of the Flash Series and it would be a rough season for her, but things would change when the series moved to Modesto Heights, located in Makana.

    The JX350 season hosted some of the races alongside the professional FX500 league. As a result the professional pilots of their respective teams spectated the junior pilots of the JX350 league as the younger pilots went racing. It was during this time that Hyun Gim would soon meet another fellow Korean, Park So-Gun of the blue, yellow, and white European team, FEISAR. The professional Korean pilot noted that Hyun Gim had a lot of sloppy piloting techniques. He witnessed her ability to turn too soon resulting in her hitting the walls of the apexes and late use of airbrakes resulting her hitting the outside walls of corners, both have which cost her valuable points from perfect zones and laps in Zone events. Hyun’s over eagerness to use her Zone Boosts in Zone Battle events resulted in her colliding into walls head-on also cost her many Zones during those events; both event types where she could’ve scored a medal if it weren’t for her sloppy piloting. While Park So-Gun was also plagued with difficulty in handling technical tracks, most notably Chenghou Project, he ended up tutoring the young Korean girl when the two met outside the hanger bays. When Park So-Gun pointed out Hyun’s terrible flaws to her, he almost provoked the wrath of the young girl, but it was clear for her to see that she needed serious tutoring. Park then soon took Hyun under his wing and began to tutor her on her piloting techniques and her mindset during Zone-based events. This would soon pay off when Hyun scored her first medal of the season, a bronze during the Zone Battle at Modesto Height. She wasn’t able to score anymore medals during the Flash Series after that time nor score any medals during the Virtual Series, but she was getting slightly better during each event; though her competition, including Goteki’s rival the British pink and purple team of Icaras, were also getting better. She would need to be a step ahead of them in order to stay ahead of them. Thankfully, she had a handful of friends to work with.

    The junior pilots of AG-Systems and Auricom were quick to make friends with Hyun and they’ve also trained together in private races to hone their racing techniques. They’ve even trained outside of racing as well. She has even made friends with the most recent team in AG-racing history, the green and white Mirage junior racing team. Along with the Miracle Eight of AG-Systems and Auricom, she and her friends enjoyed massive popularity on and off the track and many racing fans around the world have requested many autographs and photos of the popular junior pilots. Her friends and Hyun herself enjoyed the popularity that they were getting, but someone would soon attempt to bring them down.

    At the start of the Rapier Series, another team came into play, a team better forgotten rather remembered. The now Bulgarian-based Tigron Enterprises. Tigron’s pilot of choice was Polina Petrov, a very unpopular pilot who was expelled from the same academy that the Miracle Eight went to. She soon devastated half during the race of infamy at Metropia during the reverse portion of Metropia in Japan. This left her on the top of the podium while the others were recovering with the help of Hyun and her friends. Hyun was quick to avoid her whenever possible, as Polina was nothing but trouble and she left a lot of it in her wake. However, avoiding her would become impossible in the later stages.

    During Zone Battles, in which Hyun took part in, Polina would attempt to bully the other contenders by either ramming them off to the sides of the track or by placing Zone Barriers in front. While she never won a single medals from any Zone-based events due to her poor piloting skills, this bullying would eventually get Hyun involved. After being hit by one too many Zone Barriers by Polina, Hyun fought back. She dropped barriers in front of Polina, forcing her to run into them. This also added some unintended side effects as some of the other competitors were forced to adjust their racing line and ended up using their Zone meter to recover lost shield energy rather than Zone boosting and keep them safe from the barriers while Polina was running into them. This would earn Hyun three bronze medals during the Zone Battles – two at Ubermall and one at the Amphesium – and she would go on to earn her very first gold medal at Tech De Ra, astonishing many race analysts and commentators. Her teammates and friends congratulated on her first gold medal of the season. While it was late, Hyun was able to score a gold medal regardless.

    During the Phantom Tournament Hyun Gim, with the help of other junior members who were sidelined, were making callouts to the junior pilots on the track to take Polina out of the picture after discovering a weakness in the armored Tigron Bull craft. With their help, Polina’s ship was finally destroyed and everyone was more than happy to see her, Tigorn, and their sponsor, the BSV, banned from the sport and dismantled. Hyun was very happy to see them go, she never liked any of them anyways, even Polina. After the Phantom series was over, she decided to do something unusual for her team.

    When the Season Finale Tournament came about for season one of the JX305 racing league, Hyun wanted to participate in the tournament. Some of the engineers were surprised by this, but her teammates Scarlett and Yin, along with Keao Manumaleuna, saw the burning passion and desire to race and she was soon in the pack. For her first two races outside Zone and Zone Battle, she did better than anyone anticipated, scoring a good amount of points for her team. This would accommodate in Goteki getting third place throughout the whole tournament and helping the team get a bronze medal for each of the girls. Hyun was happy that she was able to perform well and help her team score one last medal for the season.

    Despite her shaky start, Hyun became popular amongst the grid. While not the most popular pilot of the junior league, she has contributed where it counted. She has drastically improved as a pilot and it showed very well, impressing even her mentor, Park So-Gun. With the second season of the JX350 already announced, the young Korean girl plans to improve herself further and continue to impress her friends, her mentor, and the racing fans around the world. Hyun is more than ready to take on the next season of the JX350 racing league.

    Bio

    There have been many aggressive pilots in the AntiGravity-racing leagues since its inception in 2048. From the infamous Omarr Khumala of Tigron to the Triakis pilot of Xavier Chaffin, who has shown unchecked aggression against AG-Systems and Auricom in particular, though someone would step up to be just as aggressive as he is. Maskim Zolnerowich was the pilot who would become as aggressive as Xavier, until the JX350 racing league changed him into a different person today.

    Born in a low class family, Maksim is the only son and family member left of the Zolnerowich family today. As a result of the global collapse when the F9000 notoriously fell in 2170, people began to hunt down the syndicates of Tigron Enterprises, which left parts of Russia with scars across the country. His family was lost when an explosion occurred in the Russian industrial district triggered by the criminal syndicates responsible for Tigron and their involvement with the F9000 league. The explosion in the district caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of military personnel and civilians in the area, forcing people to leave their homes and head towards nearby cities to recover. Those who survived the explosion scattered and eventually found a place to recoup and restart their lives along with the global market which recovered within ten years. Maksim on the other hand did not have as much luck as everyone else. His family was lost and he is the only surviving member of his family. Three years later, he was found near St. Petersburg with a weapon in hand after he was witnessed killing someone claiming to be ‘a member of Tigron who killed his family’ according to psychologists reports. He was taken to a juvenile facility where he lived as a juvenile for some period of time.

    Twelve years later, he was reported to be released from juvenile and was released under the care of someone in a green camouflage uniform. That someone was from Triakis Industries, who read up on Maksim’s history and was willing to take him in. Many people were afraid to approach Maksim due to his erratic behavior and many psychologists were unable to figure out his behavior patterns during his time as a juvenile. But a member of Triakis approached him just fine and no harm was done to him. They traveled to Australia and he was put in a special training camp, Boot Camp, off the get go. Maksim didn’t show any good results at first, but within months, he got the results that many military officers wanted to see. Maksim was one of the greatest soldiers that Australia can get their hands on and quickly rose through the ranks and became a sergeant quicker than anyone anticipated. Despite being one of the best, he preferred to be alone due to his erratic behavior and possibly a chance to maul the nearest person within a few feet of him, unless it was the same person who brought him in. Many psychologists continued to monitor his behavior for any sign of erratic changes to his behavior. As most suspected, he would see anyone near him as a threat with his tutor being an exception. Why this was the case is anyone’s guess, but people don’t tend to approach him as a result. He was a loner for a whole year in his life during his time at Boot Camp before his tutor brought two more people in to join him.

    Around the same month and day that Maksim was brought into Boot Camp, his tutor brought in two more recruits to join him. The Swiss daughter of a family operated Weapons Company, Daphne Summers, and the Dutch Ida Peusen. Many psychologists were afraid that these two would be Maksim’s next victim to his behavior, but after a few weeks with the two, he showed no sign of any behavior changes. It seemed that the two girls that joined Maksim was special to him in some way that he didn’t show any hostility towards them. For the next six months, the three began to train and hang out together, and Maksim began to open himself up to the two girls. Someone suggested that one of the two girls or both of them was the spark that changed Maksim. Either way, his behavior was getting better and the three would be part of a trio for the new JX350 league that was coming up.

    When Boot Camp began to look for members for an AG-junior racing squad, many soldiers and recruits were sent to the Triakis facilities to test them in flying Anne II, III, and IV and underwent training with Xavier Chaffin. A lot of soldiers and recruits began to use the heavy and bulky ship with the help of a simulator which utilized an anti-gravity tank that was used during the fall of the F9000 to help condition the soldiers and recruits of Boot Camp. Most of the testers wanted to avoid Maksim and the girls that have been taking care of him over the last six months due to Maksim’s erratic behavior, but when Boot Camp was running out of recruits and soldiers to give the ships a test, they reluctantly chose him and the girls. Soon, the three began to astonish the personnel at Triakis, pulling off maneuvers with such a heavy ship. Barrel rolls, side shifts, turning the ship with such ease while pulling off astonishing lap times and perfect laps for good measure. This question many people on how these three got good to begin with and where they got such an experience. They answered with the fact that they were practicing controlling some of the anti-gravity tanks back at the boot camp during some of their drills when Daphne Summers was upset that nobody knew how to use them. The ships were similar to the tanks, except with the fact it was built for racing. As a result, Triakis gave the three a racing seat in their junior team off the bat. While it is unclear if Maksim would keep his cool throughout the racing season, his behavior will be the key in Eliminator events that are coming to the new junior racing leagues. After numerous psych tests, Maksim was given the lead pilot seat for the JX350 league with the girls serving as a backup if Maksim was unable to race if he lost his cool or if he needed someone else to race for a different event should the need arise.

    Maksim won his first gold medal in an Eliminator event at Vineta K during the JX350’s opening season, but after that, things didn’t turn out so well from him. Nobody knows what was going on with his behaviors, but it soon became clear that something bad in him sparked and it would be the cause of a recent accident that occurred at Talon’s Junction. When the race came to the secretive energy facility, things turned for the worst. Maksim lost his control over his aggression and when he attempted to eliminate his rival, Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems – who was taught by former lead pilot Xavier Chaffin who regarded anyone a part of the Japanese team a threat to the Australian military team – his plasma bolt missed his rival by a couple of feet and, while the Entertainment Confinement System, ECS, passed many safety tests, the plasma bolt breached the cage and struck the Concordia Loop, damaging it in the process. When the race ended, Maksim also showed aggressive behavior to the point where even the race authorities knew that something had to be done. As a result, Maksim was banned for racing for the next eight races for damage done to the Talon’s Junction Concordia Loop. He was also sent to a nearby correctional facility to run multiple psych evaluations. However, the experts there were unable to figure out was the cause of his aggressive behavior and made multiple heavy corrections to him until they can find the root cause. When Week 8 came about, he was cleared to race again under the supervision of the psych experts and evaluators and in the simulated events so that he wouldn’t do anymore damage for the rest of the series. More events soon unfolded that would change Maksim forever.

    When Maksim took part in the events, the evaluators and experts paid close attention to his behavior patterns. They took notice in an abnormal behavior that showed during the last event of the week. Before they could pull him out however, the pattern mysteriously disappeared. When the event was complete, the psyched evaluators and experts pulled Maksim out of the simulator and when they ran test on him, they found that his behavior has completely changed. No longer was he the aggressive person that he was during his early days, but rather someone else. His mind was completely normalized and he did not show any signs of aggressive behavior. He was given multiple psych evaluations and he passed them all. Nobody was able to figure out what caused the change in his behavior, but now he was acting differently now, in a very good way. He was now able to speak and whatever was causing him to behave aggressively was now completely gone. This was even more prominent when he spoke to his rival, Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems, after the event was over when they crossed each other’s path. Psych evaluators and experts, along with Daphne and Ida, kept a close eye on Maksim while speaking to Michael and he showed no sign of aggressive behavior. While the two would still be rivals to this day, at least Maksim was in control and now that his erratic behavior was now gone, the two can now race each other without having Maksim trying to kill the others off.

    While Maksim didn’t earn as many medals as his competition did, he did win medals in his favorite event, Eliminator. Maksim was able to take a gold medal after a close Eliminator event on Moa Therma against Michael and a silver at Modesto Heights just a point away from beating him again, though he was able to beat his friend from Auricom, Johnathan Hale. While Maksim didn’t win any other medals, for the first time in his life he was having fun, though he still took the season seriously. Not to mention that the junior squad members of Triakis’ allies, Assegai and FEISAR, were also offering the young Russian, and his teammates, piloting and racing advice. Their advice was invaluable to him and he was able to make the most out of Anne III and IV. However, their advice would be inept against a bigger threat that would cause him to suffer a severe injury.

    At the start of the Rapier series, Tigron Enterprises joined the season late, the same team that bought their weapons licenses from Triakis. Much like the Australian team, they boasted some of the most powerful shields and armor on their craft. Unlike the Aussie counterpart however, the Tigron craft was so heavy that it could barely turn. However, it had a couple more tricks up its sleeve. As Maksim sat on the sidelines during the first race of the series, Tigron’s pilot, Polina Petrov, was able to hit Daphne’s craft with a series of weapons, causing her to be injured in the process. This would lead to a severe setback for the team as Daphne was their best for races and time trials. Ida would have to take time to race on Time Trials now that Daphne was out for the remainder of the week and the next week. Maksim on the other hand would take the races for her. He hoped that he would avenged the loss in the first Eliminator event of the series, but it was not to be. Despite Anne’s heavy armor and shielding, the craft was outgunned by Tigron’s own Bull craft, resulting in fifth place. However, he was able to win a Zone Battle thanks to Polina’s incompetent flying skills, however Polina would have another ace up her sleeve that would lead to a set of tragic events.

    A quarter of the race through the race on Metropia Reverse when Week 25 begun, an EMP was emitted from the Tigron Bull craft, disabling all weapon systems, eject systems, and short circuiting the shields rendering them critical. This left every ship on the track open to Polina’s aggressive attacks. Some of the other pilots – Michael, Johnathan, Scarlett, and Alqamar – performed a reset on their craft, forcing them to drop to the back of the pack. Maksim on the other hand attempted to finish the race before his ship could be destroyed. Unfortunately for him, Polina was able to catch up to him and before he could get to the first chicane series on the final lap, his ship was hit by a plasma bolt, causing his ship to crash into the outside wall and flip upside down, but not before it went tumbling and dazing him as a result.

    Maksim made an attempt to escape from his ship, but the ship’s weight soon began to crush his body. It was just a matter of time before the ship’s dead weight damaged his spinal cord of his body and he soon was in danger of being crushed to death, a similar fate that Zala Wolff suffered years back in the F9000. However, his rival Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems – and surprising help from Xiu Bai of EG-X – were able to lift the ship back up and Michael was able to force the cockpit door open and rescue Maksim in time. He was taken to the nearest hospital in Kyoto. Unfortunately, due to the severity of his injuries Maksim was out for the remainder of the season and would be forced to be at the hospital to recover from his injuries. His teammates, Daphne and Ida, and his long time recruiter who got him into Boot Camp would watch over him as he recovered as one of the other girls raced in his position. Michael would also come by to visit him during his time at Kyoto until he had to leave for Makana for the next stop in the Rapier series. However, Maksim said one thing to him before he left to Ubermall in Makana:

    (Maksim) “Make sure she pays for what she did to me and our rivalry.”
    (Michael) “I’ll make sure she does.”

    As Michael and Maksim’s teammates left for Ubermall, he stood behind to watch the junior league televised via holographic screens. It was then Maksim found out that Tigron were cheating all along. Aside from the illegal weapon that they used against him and the other competitors in Metropia, the Bull craft also used illegal technology, containing self-regenerating shields. He remembered this and when he got out of the hospital – albeit disabled and on a wheelchair – he was quick to get Triakis’ and his teammate’s attention on this matter. However, they were unable to convince the Race Commission about Tigron cheating their way to the front, much like how Ayaka Hamasaki of Auricom failed. This however didn’t stop Maksim from attempting to exploit Tigron for cheating. His primary concern, however, is finding someone who also knows about this aside from himself and his teammates. Thankfully, he had the right connections.

    As Maksim’s rival was still on the track, Michael and his friends were also quick to notice this as well. As a result, he and his band of close friends, dubbed the Miracle Eight, sent out a number of private invitations to the other junior members of their respective teams. Maksim was quick to accept this and with the help of his teammates, he was brought to an undisclosed location in Las Vegas, Nevada to work out a strategy to bring down Tigron’s only Bull ship. When many of the junior members began to doubt the Miracle Eight’s findings, he was the one who stepped in and show the others proof that Tigron were indeed cheating, which was soon followed up with video footage of the Tigron ship using the banned technology. He and the group of junior pilots soon were able to set up the plan to destroy the ship the hard way. Weapon manipulation would be too obvious to the commentators, but Maksim did had another idea. He would keep any eye on the Tigron ship and send callouts to help the junior members to avoid as much damage as possible from Polina and destroy the ship. With the plan set, they would get it rolling during the Phantom series tournament.

    When the tournament came along, everyone put the plan into action. With Ayaka taking out the AI manipulating the shields of the Tigron ship, Maksim was able to organize everything and get every junior member to use their weapons at the right time. With the Bull ship wide open for the final attack, he set Michael, who held onto the plasma bolt, for the final blow to the ship, destroying the craft with the last hit. Maksim was impressed that Michael was able to use his aggression where it counted the most. Every team on the grid, except Tigron who slipped away shortly after the destruction of their ship, celebrated the occasion, no matter their finishing position. However, Tigron’s sponsor had another trick up their sleeve.

    With the destruction of Tigron’s ship, the BSV were quick to send out many death threats to every junior member on their respective teams, Maksim included. He knew that the BSV has finally gone too far and wanted to seal their fates once and for all, but knew that getting to the racing commission would be a whole different story. Thankfully, he had support. Much like his rival, Michael Sanderson, he also received the same threat from the BSV as well and he was able to get every junior member together to report this matter to the race commission. With everyone together – as well as the help of Race Commission Steward Krystian Atkinson – the race commission was finally able to ban Tigron and their sponsor, the BSV, permanently from the AG-racing sport, which was soon followed up by their dismantle. Maksim was more than happy to see them go, as they were responsible for his severe injury and Petia’s life-threating injury which resulted him in unable to fly for the rest of his life. Maksim has sent his deepest apologies to the man and hopes he can live the rest of his life peacefully.

    With Tigron and their sponsor finally out of the way, everyone went back to racing for one last tournament, which Maksim had to sit out, but he was able to support his team from the sidelines and help them finish strong in fourth. The season came to a wrap and while Triakis finished in the mid-pack no higher than seventh, he was glad that at least he was able to get the team where they finished. There was a lot of ups and downs in the season, but he was able to make it through.

    Many things have happened throughout the season. Many journalist have begun to speak to Maksim for answers about him, his motives, past, his rivalry between him and Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems, and his future plans, which he was more than happy to answer the many questions for his interviewers. With a lot of confusion cleared up, Maksim got a lot of news from his friends and doctors. One of the most notable news he received was that Xavier Chaffin made a public announcement at a recent press conference that he would be leaving the racing scene and Vincent Stephenson would be taking over his lead pilot seat for the next FX500 season, with Buster Harding taking the second seat and Lauren Taylor taking the third. Many Triakis officials, and his friends to an extent, were shock to see him go, but Maksim wasn’t surprised. Xavier had a difficult time making friends aside from Assegai, something that Maksim was able to observe very easily. Not to mention the many aggressive tactics Xavier taught him, which caused the Talon’s Junction Concordia Loop Accident, something that Xavier regrets. Maksim has sent his farewell to the man and wished him luck on his future endeavors. The doctors on the other hand gave him news that once he recovers from his injuries, he’ll be cleared to race for Triakis once again. Maksim was more than happy to get back on the track and race, without any interferences of course. It’ll be for a while, but he’ll be the one to beat in Eliminator events. After his recovery and clearance to engage in rigorous activities, Maksim has trained himself up to work hard and give it his all in the next JX350 season. With his teammates at his side, he is prepared this time to be a force to be reckoned with on the track.

    Bio

    Throughout its history, weapons have become a stable part of the AG-racing leagues, some of which have undergone drastic changes while some others were subtly changed. Weapon usage was at its peak during the F9000 with the introduction of super weapons, which were soon banned after the collapse of Temtesh Bay. After the league collapsed, weapons distribution in AG-craft came to a dead halt. Years later when AG-racing became a thing again, the biggest global weapons distribution company, Triakis Industries, began to distribute weapons for use in the AG-racing leagues before entering themselves to promote their products. Triakis soon began to establish child companies to ease the distribution of weapons to various racing teams. What nobody expected is that one of the family members of one of these companies would become an AG-pilot. Daphne Summers is the granddaughter of the company, who has tested various weapons for the AG-racing league and became a pilot herself as a young age, racing for Triakis and becoming the poster girl for the team.

    Born in the largest city of Switzerland, Zurich, Daphne is the granddaughter of the upper class family, who were responsible for the creation of some of the weapon systems seen in the racing leagues with the help of Triakis Industries. While there were some critics of the weapon systems, there were some who appreciated what the family and the company was doing, particularly FEISAR and Assegai. And backed by popular demand with power limits, the weapons made a return to the racing league. Soon the family began to make adjustments as necessary to the weapon systems in the racing league as part of their own independent company, the Summers Weapon Systems Company (SWSC), working as partners with Triakis. As the next head daughter of the family, Daphne was expected to carry the name of the family for many generations to come.

    During her childhood, Daphne was brought along with her family to observe how her parents tested the weapon for the racing leagues. As she was getting to the end of her childhood, she was taught how to operate some of the machines and how to test the weapons properly and soon she was seen testing some of the weapons that have been seen today. Rockets, missiles, cannons, plasma, quakes, each weapon underwent testing by her parents and herself to ensure that the weapons did not do any harm to the pilots on the track but also entertain the spectators of the race. Her history caught the eyes and attention of the team who were responsible for bringing back the weapon systems in the racing leagues, Triakis Industries. The team was looking for recruits for their junior racing team despite the RIDS controversy and saw that Daphne was the perfect candidate for their team. Her parents were also interested to see their daughter work hands on with the weapons on the racing track and quickly made arrangements with Fiona Talyor, the head of the recruitment team for Triakis, for Daphne to join Boot Camp. When she was fourteen, they sent their daughter to Boot Camp in Australia to train her up to fly in the JX350 racing league. To everyone’s surprise at Boot Camp, Daphne passed all of her exams and drills in just one go despite her cheerful and carefree behavior. She along with Dutch pilot, Ida Peusen, were paired up with Maksim, one of Boot Camps best recruits. Many suspected that both girls wouldn’t last when around Maksim and his erratic behavior. However, everyone was astonished that Maksim was acting normally when around the girls. Many of the recruits at Boot Camp have asked the girls how did they do it and keep Maksim in check and they only responded with by just being around him keeps him calm.

    During her first year at Boot Camp, Daphne was working hands on with some of the weapons at the facilities. From infantry weapons to vehicular mounted weapons, Daphne got her hands on each and every one of them and she experimented them all as she looked for the best way to operate them. She also oversaw how some of the recruits were using the weapons poorly and gave out regular demonstrations to show how it was done and many were quickly astonished by her performances. Many recruits soon followed suit very quickly, learning how to operate weapons with precise and quick maneuvers. She even gave out instructions on how to operate AG-craft that were sitting around the base and many men soon found themselves operating the ships with relative ease. Triakis made a very great choice for Daphne to join the boot camp as she became one of the poster girls for their recruitment teams as they posted recruitment posters of her all over the world wherever they could.

    Months before the start of the JX350 league, many of the recruits were sent to the Triakis tests facility in Australia to run test flights on their FX350/400 craft, Anne II, III, and IV. When Daphne was given her turn to test fly the ships, she astonished the team. She pulled off a large number of barrel rolls, not to mention the large number of records she crushed and perfect laps when she was tested in a simulator with the same ships that Triakis provided. This made her the girl to beat in race events, particularly Single Races or Tournaments events. Daphne was Triakis’ wildcard for race and Zone events and with Maksim for Eliminator and Zone Battle events and Ida would fly in Time Trial and Detonator events.

    Despite the popularity she gained from Boot Camp, her shaky start in the JX350 wasn’t as much as a surprise to everyone expected as Daphne ended up in the mid-pack during the first race. What was worse is that her skills in Zone mode were below average, despite being her favorite mode as she scored the second lowest points in her first Zone event, barely beating Mai Phan of Harimau International. The results for the next two weeks at Vineta K were near identical to the last two weeks and she was showing no signs of improvement. As a result, Triakis officials decided to switch her out for Maksim for the race at Talon’s Junction to see if the results would change. Unfortunately for them, things only got worse. With the resulting Concordia Loop Accident that followed the pilot change caused Maksim to be suspended for the remainder of week five, six, and seven, forcing Daphne to take his seat for Eliminator and Zone Battle events during his suspension until week eight. Things weren’t looking good for the Boot Camp junior squad.

    It was then that week eight proved to be the turning point for Triakis and the Boot Camp junior team. The morale for the team was very low at this point in time, but when Maksim and Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems patched their relationship up for what happened at Talon’s Junction, the morale changed for the team. Soon Daphne’s own morale changed and along with Maksim, who finally set a proper rivalry between him and Michael, set her own rivalry between her and Mizuki Nakajima of AG-Systems. The following is the conversation between the two girls during this time:

    (Daphne) “Well, there they go. I guess they’ve finally set something official between them.”
    (Mizuki) “I guess we now have ourselves an official rivalry between the two boys.”
    (Daphne) “Now that you mentioned it, we might as well set our own rivalry so that we won’t get left out of the spotlight.”
    (Mizuki) “Guess I can’t just walk away from this huh?”
    (Daphne) “That’s definitely a no go. I’ll be keeping you on my radar for the whole season.”
    (Mizuki) “And I’ll make sure to keep you entertained throughout the season.”
    (Daphne) “It’ll be a pleasure to keep you on your toes.”
    (Mizuki) “And it’ll be mine to keep you guessing.”

    This gave the two girls something to think about. And while Mizuki was beating Daphne for the most part, she was keeping the popular Japanese girl thinking in all of the races she took part in. The rivalry between the Aussies and Japanese was big during the JX350 season.

    The team’s morale has skyrocketed and they began to improve, even Daphne was getting better little by little. No longer she was constantly near the back of the pack, she was nipping at the top spots as she was finishing in better positions. She would need another season to really shine, but this season was a good start. During this season, Daphne also took part in weapons testing with her family company to ensure that the weapons were working properly and keeping the spectators and pilots unharmed from weapon impacts. Another turn of events for her is that Triakis officials approached her friends and herself for something special. They were taken photos for the team’s recruitment posters all over the world. From weapons testing, posing for recruitment posters, and racing, Daphne was getting paid big for doing all three at once and while money isn’t her forte, she was making something to support herself, her family, and her friends. It would be a nice, steady, and interesting life that she would be living in…that is, until a familiar name returned.

    When the Rapier series came about, a familiar name made its way back to the grid. Tigron Enterprises was back after a bit of a hiatus, the same company that bought their weapons licenses from Triakis Industries. During the first race at Metropia, Daphne was in a good position to overtake the entire grid on the third lap until Tigron came from behind, weapons blazing. The Tigron pilot used a plasma bolt against her ship and then followed it up with a set of rockets before the pilot rammed her ship as an aid to help them make the turn. The multiple weapons impact and the ship collision was more than enough to injury Daphne as her shoulders were dislocated from the resulting hits. Despite this, she was able to catch up and barely pass the Tigron ship, putting her in seventh, save for the other squabbling teams that couldn’t get past the heavily armored ship. However, her injuries took its toll on her and she was unable to fly for the remainder of the week and the week after. When Daphne was able to climb out of the cockpit of her ship, she was able to get a quick look at her attacker. What she saw was nothing but cruelty before her, a girl with many bad intentions, who would do anything for a victory. She didn’t catch the name of this girl, but when Mizuki visited her in the hospital during her recovery, she was able to fill Daphne in on Tigron’s lead pilot:

    *Mizuki looks at the newscaster as she begins to talk about Tigron and their junior lead pilot*

    (Mizuki) “I still can’t believe that she became a pilot for Tigron.”
    (Daphne) “Do you know her?”

    *Mizuki turns to Daphne in response, who is in a hospital bed*

    (Mizuki) “Yes, she was a student at the academy my friends and I went to.”
    (Daphne) “Are you friends with her?”
    (Mizuki) “No, she bullied many students at the academy. We weren’t exempt from her sadly.”
    (Daphne) “What did she do exactly at the academy?”
    (Mizuki) “She stole many of the students’ personal belongings including our own and bullied them into joining her. She also bribed her way on the school boards as used many of the school’s equipment without permission and constantly bashed us. She attempted to make the school her own through these acts, but she failed when we made the top of the boards.”
    (Daphne) “Did she ever get through every semester of the school?”
    (Mizuki) “She was expelled during the first semester for attempting to hurt me and my friends during a race while damaging school property as well, in style.”
    (Daphne) “In style?”
    (Mizuki) “Her AG-kart spun out like a top before she hit a wall. Nobody got hurt thankfully, but she was still spinning after the crash.”

    *the two girls laughed for a bit before getting back on topic*

    (Daphne) “What’s her name by the way, for the sake of memory?”
    (Mizuki) “Polina Petrov.”

    Daphne took her time to recover and when she did, things only got worse for Triakis. Daphne was unable to fly for the next race in Metropia so Maksim had to take her place. During that race however, Tigron began their massacre and eliminated almost every team on the track, Triakis included. Daphne was horrified, much like everyone else was, when she witnessed Maksim being crushed to death by his ship. With all of the medical shuttles disabled by Tigron’s EMP shockwave weapon, nobody was able to help him or some of the other pilots who were injured as well. Thankfully, Michael was able to rescue Maksim before he was crushed to death. However, because she was still recovering from her injuries, Daphne was unable to intervene. She wasn’t of use to anyone as she stood outside of the spotlight, only watching from the sidelines. She was still able to visit her teammate at the hospital while he recovered, with Michael of AG-Systems visiting as well. She would soon get a shot back at the spotlight however as Maksim was unable to fly for the rest of the season. She would now have to fly for Eliminator events as he gave Daphne the responsibility of the combat events while Ida would take Zone Battle. This opened many opportunities for retribution against Polina Petrov and Daphne would use every attempt to make Polina pay for what she did to Maksim.

    Her first attempt at vengeance didn’t turn out so well, as she was outgunned by Polina in the Eliminator events. She got another chance and was able to beat her in the following Zone event. However, while Daphne took the win over Polina in Zone events, Daphne wanted to beat her in Eliminator events, where she can use her anger against her. However, her second attempt at the next Eliminator had almost the same result. It was then that her rival decided to help her. Mizuki noted that Daphne was having a hard time when it came to outgunning the Bulgarian so she got her into an intense training regimen with the recommendation from Buster Harding, who also trained her friends as well. Daphne’s training paid off and now she was finally beating Polina in Eliminator events. Maksim was even impressed that Daphne was able to outgun Tigron for what they did to him. This, along with other events happening at once would lead up to a discovery that everyone would see, a crack in Tigron’s armor.

    Tigron’s Bull craft revealed something to Daphne during the final race of the Rapier Tournament but didn’t take too much notice of it when celebrating her victory over Polina until Maksim was able to leave the hospital and fill her in. Daphne was shocked to hear about this and was soon furious with Tigron with using banned weapon technology in attempt to win races and wipe their competition off the grid. She and her teammates attempted to get the race commission’s attention on this matter, but sadly they failed to do so. Now it was up to them alone to beat Tigron at their own game. However, their rivals proved to be valuable allies. The Triakis junior members soon got an invitation to a private meeting from the Miracle Eight. Without hesitation, they accepted it and went to the undisclosed location pointed out by the group. The Boot Camp junior team and the Miracle Eight didn’t waste any time and went straight to the point to destroy the ship. Daphne would be part of this plan, she liked the way it was going and her vengeance would be filled, in a way.

    Daphne would continue to take on Polina, but kept her aggression in check until the Phantom tournament came about, letting the Bulgarian enjoy her wins while they lasted. When the tournament started, Daphne would be fighting back, this time with a lot of help. She was more than eager to land a number of weapon hits when she was given the opportunity, much like Sora Akiyama of AG-Systems. Daphne was even impressed that a passive pilot like Sora would take his aggression out on the Bulgarian. Daphne was able to land a large amount of weapon hits on Polina, which culminated to the destruction of Tigron’s only ship available as Michael Sanderson of AG-Systems dealt the final blow to Polina. Unfortunately, Polina was able to escape, but at least Tigron won’t be racing any time soon. However, she was not out of the woods just yet as their sponsor had one last trick up their sleeves.

    The BSV were quick to issue death threats to every junior team member and Daphne was no exception. She would’ve barged her way to the race commission on her own, but Maksim and Michael had a better idea. Michael and his friends were able to gather the other junior members together and report this matter to the race commission, even getting the help of Race Commissioner Steward Krystian Atkinson, who also was having a difficult time in convincing the race commission to ban Tigron and the BSV. With everyone together, the race commission finally banned the team and their sponsor from the sport. It was soon followed up by their dismantlement and Daphne was more than happy to see them finally gone for good. With the two banes out of the picture, she went on to participate in the final tournament for Triakis alongside her teammate Ida, to finish the season strong.

    With Tigron finally gone, Daphne was finally able to live her life in peace. Whatever it is helping her family test weapons for the racing league thanks to all of the weapons data she gathered during the first season, posing for Triakis’ recruitment posters, or racing for the team, Daphne has found success within the racing sport. It was thanks to her that eager recruits are now turning to Triakis for a race seat in the Australian team. Daphne will continue to see that more people join Triakis to race the right way and she continues to monitor and test weapons to ensure the maximum safety and entertainment for the spectators. Indeed, Daphne is Triakis’ redemption and trump card and she will continue to play that role for her team.

    Bio

    Victoria is Triakis’ breakthrough ever since the RIDS controversy. Able to hit Mach 8 speeds and stop on a dime, the new Victoria is truly a gunship to fear in Eliminator events. However, due to the RIDS controversy, Triakis were lacking the test pilots they needed to ensure that the ship would fly properly. While Lauren Taylor was indeed a great test pilot for the team, her status change to third pilot for the team meant that the Australian team had to look for someone else to test the new craft to ensure that Victoria would be successful. Thankfully, they didn’t have to look very far. Ida Peusen is Triakis’ test pilot for Victoria as well as a junior pilot for Triakis’ junior team, Boot Camp, for the JX350 league, who has successfully tested the new craft for Triakis and races for the team as a junior pilot to this day.

    Ida was born in Sydney, Australia, where her grandparents have moved to ever since the fall of the F900 and the global depression that followed, her family has expanded throughout Australia since. The family was job hunting for any job, but when the racing leagues restarted the number of job openings began to open up and within a few weeks the family landed a job with the biggest conglomerate in weapons manufacturing in the world, Triakis Industries. The family were soon making a profit and when Triakis began to make moves to enter the racing league themselves, the family was soon promoted into making racing craft for the company, creating Elizabeth for the racing league. The family would go on into making Anne and Victoria, the latter being the most successful craft ever made in Triakis’ history. However, with the RIDS controversy looming over the team, which contributed to their final FX300 title being stripped from the Australian team and a huge fine along with it, the team was lacking the test pilots to help test Anne and Victoria. As a result, Anne suffered in the FX350 and 400. The team needed someone to test Victoria for the FX500. The team was soon in for a surprise.

    The Peusen family brought their daughter along to work when she finished school each day. Their daughter, Ida Peusen, wondered around the facilities of Triakis aimlessly, until one day when she caught her first glance at Triakis’ greatest craft ever made, Victoria. After that, she developed an interest in the craft. While she continued to wander the Triakis facilities, she would always find time and ways to get her eyes on the craft. Ida would always be watch people work and test on Vicky day after day and she would continue to express interest in the craft. It wasn’t until one day that their only test pilot, Lauren Taylor was promoted to third pilot that Triakis ran into a problem, the team now had no test pilot to test the craft as Lauren was now practicing for the FX500 as a reserve pilot. As Triakis, and Lauren’s mother Fiona – who was job-hunting for Triakis, began to search for a replacement test pilot and soon saw that Peusen’s daughter, Ida, was keeping an eye on Vicky for a while now and decided to give her a shot at piloting the ‘Fury’ prototype. Her parents were originally against Ida being a test pilot, but when she flew the craft in a simulator, she was able to fly it flawlessly, surprising everyone. Triakis then decided to put her in the seat of the real Vicky and test fly it…and did it flawlessly as well. Triakis decided to make her a pilot for the JX350 league and a test pilot for Vicky. She would be undergoing a lot of training but she would be Triakis’ new test pilot for the team.

    Ida was soon sent to Boot Camp to join two other recruits, Maksim Zolnerowich from Russia and Daphne Summers from Switzerland. She was soon trained on how to pilot and use the weapons systems on the older Anne ships for the JX350 league. However, her main concern was taking data from Anne and ensure that Victoria would be properly ready for the FX500 league. At the same time, Daphne and Ida have been with Maksim to ensure that his behavior remains normal. When Ida got into Anne for testing, she proved that she is a viable contender and she was able to take corners very well and find the most optimal racing lines on each of the simulated race tracks. Ida would be appointed for Time Trial events as well as Detonator events as well thanks to her perfect racing lines.

    Like Daphne, Ida had a lot of inconsistent results during the JX350. This was mainly due to Anne being a brickhouse ship to handle and her time with Victoria over Anne also showed. However, she was able to pull out two bronze medals thanks to her hard work and her ability to tame the ship to an extent. Still, her main focus was to ensure that Victoria would be the ship to beat in future seasons of the FX500 and kept her focus on gathering data from Anne. Throughout the Venom, Flash, and Virtual series, she gathered as much data as possible for Vicky and would ensure that she would make Vicky a winner, if not a champion.

    Ida’s personality also made her friends, particularly with Assegai, though she also befriended FEISAR. She shared her knowledge with the African team on how to keep their fragile ships as shielded as possible while she was taught how to keep her craft under control thanks to advice from FEISAR Study, FEISAR’s junior race team. While her results were still inconsistent, at least she was getting better with handling with Anne’s poor handling. It was only a matter of time before she would have a rival team and pilot to compete with.

    Tigron Enterprises soon entered the JX350 late during the Rapier series and it became clear that they would be a threat to everything that everyone stood for and the team’s lead pilot, the Bulgarian known as Polina Petrov, violence showed when she injured Ida’s teammate, Daphne Summers, and caused the massacre during the race at Metropia, leading to many injuries on the track. It was then that she soon discovered that the team was attempting to steal data from the other teams, including her own. She was quick to warn everyone about this and was able to prevent this from happening. However, her team would be the primary target of Tigron, who targeted their database for shield and stability tech that the Australian team managed to acquire from Assegai. This was something that Ida would not stand for. She kept a close eye on the Bulgarian to ensure the safety of Triakis’ data.

    Ida was able to beat Polina in every event she took part in and was able to keep the data of Anne and Victoria away from the Bulgarian. It wasn’t until the Rapier tournament that she was able to discover that Tigron were cheating their way to the front using banned race and weapons technology. Ida decided to use the data gathered from previous races against the team. She quickly got together with her teammates and with private invites from the popular junior race members of the Miracle Eight, she was able to share the data she gathered from Tigron’s Bull craft. Everyone then used the data that Ida gathered and destroyed the ship off the map during the final race at Tech De Ra during the Phantom Tournament to ensure that Tigron wouldn’t be able to race again. However, Tigron weren’t the only ones who witnessed what just happened.

    Tigron joined the JX350 racing league with the sponsorship of BSV, Bulgarian’s main sporting channel, and the BSV were quick to send out death threats to her and the other junior members of their teams. However, Ida was able to secure the data logs regarding Tigron’s attempt to steal data from her own team and the other teams. Along with the other junior members and Race Commissioner Steward Krystian Atkinson, they were able to convince the rest of the race commission to ban Tigron and the BSV from the sport, which was soon followed by their downfall. With them gone, Ida was relieved that Triakis’ and the other team’s data were safe. She continued on to race in the Season Finale Tournament with Daphne to finish the season strong.

    With her first season out of the way, Ida continued to play the role of the test pilot for Triakis to ensure that Victoria would be a winner in the coming seasons for the FX500. Triakis have asked Ida to test their craft again and again and even Lauren Taylor was impressed that Ida was able to help her team in contributing to the team in various good ways. They hope that she would improve over the course of the next seasons and continue to test their craft to ensure that they would become winners in the future.

    Bio

    EG.r Technologies were no strangers to controversy as some of their pilots underwent heavy augmentations and experimentations over the course of their history and their forty three years with Xios International, who made some of the strongest weapon systems back in the F9000 league. In 2172, the two companies merged and were rebranded as EG.X Technologies. With Xios creating the racing craft and weapon systems for the team and EG.r providing the neural bonding technology and the pilots, at least most of them, the team scored a number of top finishes despite not winning any championships in the FX350 and FX400, mainly due to the poor relationship between pilots Mikael Repo and Yuen Chang butting heads with each other most of the time and the poor handling of the EG.X ships. With the FX500 and JX350 on the horizon however, EG.X has undergone improvements, giving their new Fury prototype some notable improvements. However, race experts still believe that the team wouldn’t last for the next few seasons, but with a new line of pilots for the junior team that have recently been announced – most of them have created more concerns than the race commission would like – many experts believe that this would be an important developmental step for the Chinese/Finland team. The Chinese part of the EG.X team provided a new set of pilots for the junior leagues who are entering the JX350 league for the first time and three of them showed interesting results. One such pilot was known as Xiu Bai, a young Chinese pilot with the skills of a veteran pilot and mind of a supercomputer, who made an impact on the JX350 racing league before it even began.

    Xiu was originally known as subject number 948 and started out as a test tube subject for the secretive team. After she was artificially born and released from her tank, she was taken to a hospital and was examined by her doctors and her initial results were normal, though her cybernetics will grow with her throughout her life, making her one of EG-X’s first successful cyborg. That however, would change in the next three years. Subject 948 underwent a number of tests for the scientists and during a test, she ended up picking up a three hundred pound object with ease at such a very young age, with just one arm. To top it off she also has the intelligence of a supercomputer and during her tests, she was able to learn extremely quicker than the average human and wielded significantly stronger memory as well. Soon afterward, she underwent a lot more tests for the scientists and doctors who were now interested in the girl and saw that she can learn a new word, language, and even solve problems in a blink of an eye. This astonished and caught the eye of many scientists and many would seek to adopt her. One scientist though, An Bai, took the opportunity to adopt her and gave the subject a name, Xiu Bai, the beauty in white, translated by An herself.

    Throughout her life, Xiu took note of the other test subjects that were born in the same fashion as her. An, the mother scientist that adopted Xiu, told her that she would be the most special of them all. Xiu continued to undergo a variety of tests, learn new subjects, and adapt them to her life style such as martial arts. She was able to pick up heavier objects and learn extremely quickly, making her one of the most successful test subjects in years. This led her to become the subject to take part in EG.X’s project for the JX350 league, Project Valkyrie, where a test subject would be given a special set of prototype suit designed by the Chinese scientists for use in the JX350 league.

    The suit was broken down into two parts, an inner set consisting of portions of thin layers, creating a protective shield around the body and the suit itself, which was based of the Valkyries of Norse mythology. With many radical designs and endless amount of possibilities, the project took off and many radical designs were made for the suit. Soon though, a fitting design with suit her and with pieces of the suit on her arms, legs, and head, Xiu was finally given the suit that fitted her like a glove. After running many diagnostics test, results showed that the suit, despite its bulkiness, would fit well in the cockpit of EG-X’s FX350/400 craft and after many tests, the suit would be used for the JX350……at least that what the scientists and the entire team hoped for when they submitted the application to use the suit for the junior racing league.

    Despite the success of the Valkyrie project, the race commission denied the use of the suit as the race commission didn’t want to take any chances should the safety of the user be compromised in the event that they had to eject from the ship when destroyed in a race due to the suit’s extra weight and not to mention the extra parts that can get caught in the ship’s cockpit during the ejection process. However, with the Adaptive Flight Suits (AFS) – made by Mizuki Nakajima of AG-Systems, which adapted to the user’s body and environment – the race commission had to take a neutral approach to the suit. Despite EG-X providing the bare minimum amount of data on the inner part of the Valkyrie Suit, the shielding of the inner layer provided more than enough protection for Xiu after the team demonstrated it to the race commission, whilst keeping the data of the project secret. The inner layer of the Valkyrie suit was approved for use in the upcoming JX350 league and the league would be a radically different racing league in which teams underwent experimentation.

    With the JX350 coming up, Xiu was paired with two other test subjects, Zhen Guan and Xue Lee, and was paired with a professional pilot for training for the racing league, EG.X’s Polish and third pilot Gabrielle Zuzovnitch, who was taught by Natasha Belmondo, former Auricom and Xios pilot. She taught Xiu and the other pilots how to operate the EG.X ships and their weapon systems. While it had some minor upgrades, the ships themselves still had poor handling overall and they operated more like a rocket with a cockpit and air brakes attached to them. Still, Xiu was able to use the craft without too many problems using the manual controls, but when she was connected to it via neural implants, she made the rocket-like ship look like an actual racing craft for once in EG.X’s history. By pulling off an extremely large amount of barrel rolls, perfect laps, Xiu was able to handle the poor handling ship like a beautiful paint brushing technique on a blank canvas. By the age of eight, she was pulling off some of the moves of veteran pilots in the racing leagues and discovered the racing lines and shortcuts of each track within just two laps. And by the age of ten, she was hitting Supersonic speeds in Zone simulations. Much like her fellow squad mates, she follows orders that are given to her and never breaks them unless she has a very good reason to. This was apparent during a simulated race with weapons active when one of her squad mates, Xue Lee, almost eliminates her with a plasma bolt which was charged during the final corner and was sent down the fastest racing line of the corner. Xiu was forced to break away and give up her position to Zhen in order to dodge the plasma bolt and survive the race. When asked by Gabrielle why Xiu left her racing line near the end of the race and finished second, Xiu responded with this:

    (Xiu) “My squad mate used a plasma bolt against me and I was forced to move away from the racing line to avoid being hit. It was a choice between giving up my position for second place and survive or being eliminated and not finishing at all.”

    Weeks before the JX350 and FX500 began, the three junior pilots were presented to the other two professional pilots, lead pilot Mikael Repo and second pilot Yuen Chang, by Gabrielle, in which Repo raised an eyebrow to the three new junior pilots, questioning if they are even capable of racing in the junior leagues. That is, until he raced all three in a number of simulated races. While Repo got a head start against them, thanks to the slightly augmented performance in EG-X’s Fury prototype ship, the three junior pilots were able to close the gap between them and Repo, resulting in an extremely close race between the him and the junior pilots. While Repo barely came out on top in some of the races thanks to his Fury ship, each member of the junior team has beaten him at least twice, with Xiu Bai beating him six times. He has admitted this:

    (Repo) “Looks like I have some new rivals to watch out for, and not just Chang and the EG-X’s poor ship.”

    Of the three pilots who are signed up for the JX350 league and after extensive pre-season testing, Xiu was the best of them all, with reactive reflexes and great consistency all around. Xiu is one of the very few pilots to stay on the racing line at all times, much like Yuen Chang, and only leaving it when it is to either avoid incoming weapons fire on the track or to bash others out of the way. After an intense amount of training with her instructor and two squad mates, Xiu was given the lead pilot seat for EG.X’s junior racing team, Xios.

    When the JX350 came about, a lot of EG-X scientists predicted Xiu and the Xios junior team were going to completely dominate the junior league by a landslide after running multiple simulated races. However, the league showed a completely different story. Because of the weapons fire on the track, there were a lot of risks of being eliminated no thanks to the subpar shields of the EG-X ships. As a result, Xiu Bai was not taking the risks of being eliminated for passing up a competitor in attempting to gain an extra position, who held weapons in case anyone would attempt a pass. Another uncalculated variable was the top Zone pilots in the league, particularly Michael, Mizuki, Alexis, and Sora of AG-Systems and Johnathan, Hitomi, Eric, and Ayaka of Auricom, who became known as the Miracle Eight, as well as some of the other pilots, particularly the Makanian Amazons, that had such potential. No scientist didn’t predict that they would be doing so well in Zone events and despite earning podium finishes in Zone events, Xiu was constantly being topped by the Miracle Eight. However, when the Miracle Eight weren’t present on the track and if nobody was holding weapons, assuming such opportunities show up, Xiu excelled, especially in Zone events.

    Despite the scientists’ predictions being completely thrown out of the window, the JX350 league has presented a lot of opportunities for the secretive team. The Miracle Eight, along with the Makanian Amazons, were doing extremely well throughout the season and many scientists sent out orders to the junior team to obtain data on them during races using discreet methods. After all, they were curious to see how they were beating a supercomputer like Xiu. If the scientists can get a hold of any form of data on the pilots, they can use it to help the Xios junior team and continue to improve them and in turn, dominate the next JX350 season. As long as the others didn’t know about it, they can continue to gather data for the junior team to improve them. What kind of data EG-X were able to gather and how much remains unknown.

    While Xiu Bai had no quarrels with anyone during the season, Nicolo Testa, Chief Operator of FEISAR, has displayed his displeasure for EG-X. Many people were surprised that Xiu didn’t react to Nicolo’s outbursts, seeing how he directed some of his anger towards the junior team when he got word of a newly formed EG-X junior team. Instead, her actions did the talking for her and she was able to top FEISAR’s junior pilots, Denisa Kysely and Lug Walter in every race, silencing her critics before they could speak any further. Many fans have seen that Xiu is emotionless, but they have seen her speak from time to time, though she usually never says a word to anyone except to her superiors or someone important to her. What kind of experimentation she underwent remains unknown to the public to this day.

    Xiu Bai was also one of the very few pilots on the paddock to notice that the Bulgarian pilot of Tigron, Polina Petrov, was augmented when she came along after the first race at Metropia along with the Miracle Eight and the Makanian Amazons. She was also quick to note, along with Zhen Guan and Yin Ruan of the Makanian Amazons that the BSV cameras were also on scene. She suggested that they were to leave the area before the BSV can pick them up and follow them around. While the Miracle Eight wanted to check on Daphne Summers of Triakis, who suffered from an injury, Xiu strongly advised them to keep their distance and ensured them that Daphne’s injuries are not severe as stated in this recorded conversation:

    (Mizuki) “Daphne…”

    *Mizuki attempts to make her way to Daphne but is stopped by Xiu who held her arm in Mizuki’s way before she makes any progress*

    (Xiu) “Let her be. She’ll live through the pain.”
    (Mizuki) “I can’t just leave her, she’s injured.”

    *Xiu directs her attention to the BSV camera drones around the area recording Daphne’s injury before returning her attention to the others as they look at the cameras and then back at her*

    (Xiu) “She will be fine. Her injuries are not severe and medics have arrived to escort her to the hospital.”
    (Michael) “How do you know all of this without even getting near her?”
    (Xiu) “I ran a scan on her injuries and her immediate area. While she has dislocated her shoulders after taking multiple weapon hits and a ram from our new guest, medics have arrived to pick her up and get her to the hospital.”
    (Johnathan) “How did you even run that ‘scan’ in the first place?”
    (Yin) “She is a cyborg, a product of EG-X. Knowing them, she can be capable of anything.”
    (Scarlett) “No surprises here. They are well-known for their augmentations and neural bonding technology.”
    (Sora) “A cyborg?”
    (Xiu) “That is correct. I am indeed a cyborg. I’ve been built to serve my creators.”

    *The Miracle Eight and the Makanian Amazons looked at each other before returning their attention to Xiu*

    (Xiu) “You can visit her at the Kyoto Hospital later on once the BSV leave us in peace. For now…”

    *Xiu notices that Zhen of EG-X as well notes that the BSV cameras have begun to survey the area around Daphne and the medics as she points at one of them*

    (Xiu) “Let us leave before we end up getting the BSV’s attention.”

    *Xiu begins to leave the area before the others follow suit*

    Along with many others, Xiu knew that the Bulgarian pilot would soon become a threat to everyone. This quickly escalated during the race at Metropia Reverse when an EMP shockwave went off. This resulted in many ship functions being disabled and left vulnerable to Polina’s rampage. Xiu on the other hand knew that something like this was going to happen and she disconnected her bond from the ship before the shockwave went off, taking manual control of the ship. Her Valkyrie shit’s shielding also took the brunt of the EMP as it was disabled, keeping her cybernetic body safe from the shockwave. However, it was only a matter of time before Polina targeted Xiu’s fragile ship and with barely any shielding left to protect it Xiu was forced to leave her ship to be destroyed by Poina. Xiu manually opened the cockpit door of her ship and escaped from her ship with beautiful acrobatics seconds before Polina destroyed it. It was Scarlett of Goteki who happened to be coming up from behind, which Xiu predicted. She landed in her cockpit when Scarlett opened the cockpit door and allowed Xiu to drop into her ship. While Xiu was eliminated from the race, she became the navigator for Scarlett and the other surviving competitors for the remainder of the race. When Maksim of Triakis and Petia of Qirex were eliminated, their lives were in danger. Scarlett then dropped off Xiu with Michael of AG-Systems to rescue Maksim while Scarlett helped Johnathan of Auricom save Petia from being burnt to death by his ship. With their combined strength, Xiu and Michael were able to lift the ship off of Maksim and Michael forced the cockpit door open. Once Michael rescued Maksim, Xiu pointed out the nearest hospital for Michael and Johnathan when they rescued both Maksim and Petia. She then returned to Scarlett to be picked up and was soon dropped off with her team, saying that the teams should now focus on getting rid of Tigron before they cause any further damage. During the entirety of the race, Xiu was able to obtain data on Polina Petrov. From racing style, habits, and even getting the schematics on the Tigron ship, she gathered every single data byte and was soon ready to use it to rid her from the world.

    During the remainder of the Rapier series, Xiu and her teammates continued to monitor Tigron’s indestructible ship for any signs of weakness as they raced and thanks to the AG-Systems and Auricom junior teams, Friends in Speed and Auricom Academy, a weakness was found in the Tigron Bull craft. This gave EG-X a window of opportunity that the team couldn’t throw away. EG-X soon began to analyze the ship once more, particularly on the crack in the armor, to see if there was a solution to bypass its self-regenerating defenses and destroy the ship. Once they gathered the data, all they needed was some help. Thankfully, they didn’t have to look very far. Once the Xios junior team received their orders, they got word that the Miracle Eight sent out a private invitation to all junior team squad mates. And as expected, Xiu Bai was able to figure out what the Miracle Eight needed. She and her junior team got together and met with the Miracle Eight and the other junior squad mates at an undisclosed location in Las Vegas before the Phantom Series began. What information they exchanged between each other remains unknown, but it has been suggested that they’ve exchanged info on Tigron’s weakness.

    When the Phantom Series tournament began, Xiu Bai followed the procedures that she received and used it to help the Miracle Eight and the other junior team members eliminate Polina and Tigron’s only ship in the JX350 league, resulting in the team dropping out of the JX350. She then continued on to finished the Phantom Series Tournament. However, Xiu was not done just yet. She was quick to receive a death threat from Tigron’s sponsor, the BSV, and she also noted that her fellow competitors also got the same thing. The Miracle Eight soon got every junior member together, along with Xiu and her junior team as well. Her presence, along with her superb ability to count the number of threats to every junior pilot on the grid within a second to the race commission led to Tigron’s and the BSV’s ban from the sport and eventually their downfall. Xiu Bai continued on and finished the final tournament of the season with a silver medal.

    While EG-X only scored 4th place during the first season of the JX350 league – which was very good start to an inaugural race season to say the least, EG-X were able to get what they needed from the season thanks to the information and data that Xiu and the Xios junior team gathered throughout the season. What EG-X plans to use with the data remains unknown, but EG-X has announced that they will return in full force and ready to claim a spot on the podium in the next season of the JX350 league. The young lead pilot, Xiu Bai, along with her teammates look ready to take the grid by surprise next season and with the data gathered from the first season of the JX350, it can be possible that they can take the next JX350 season by a landslide.
