    Author Note: Considering that this is an official pilot in the WipEout series, there is no official backstory behind this character at all (that I know of). This is my own take of a made up backstory for this pilot, but of course it isn’t canon, especially since I have something planned out for this pilot, playing a big role in the Auricom/Qirex conflict in the FX500 league.

    Born on January 17th, 2180 in Izhevsk Russia, Nadia Elenova had been with Qirex Research & Development since the remaining years of the FX300 league during the early 2200's. Back then she started piloting AG-craft by the time she turned 20, and around that time, Qirex had already reestablished itself since 2179. Their success during the early years had influenced Nadia to someday bring the team back to its former glory, making a big decision of purchasing her own craft to compete in local race events in west Russia. Buying a craft would cost her fortune however, but putting her dedication and knowledge to the sport could someday bring her to the highest division of the AG-race commission for a chance to be a solid and valuable pilot on the once successful Russian team. For three years owning her own craft and competing in many local races across the country, Nadia had showed what she is capable of by winning almost every race she had entered. Many spectators were surprised by her experience and were stunned to see how a single female pilot can outmatch her competitors regardless of the odds that she would lose to them. Her progress soon got attention earning large amounts of sponsors, but her most anticipated offer was a letter from Qirex. Reading the entire letter showed that her skills were highly impressive and that her experience could become stronger if she were to compete with them, paying her a fortune to hire her. Nadia immediately accepted the offer without a second thought, and in a few days, she had set herself off to Qirex's main facility in Moscow. It was there where she had met Levovitch for the first time, knowing that he had made a wise choice of hiring her with the many hired pilots for the team as her skills continued to impress the company. She took most of her training in the virtual world of zone mode, until the development of a new AG-Craft was in the process for the upcoming FX350 league in 2205. Nadia was even given a chance to test pilot the new LS-01 craft, as this heavy looking design made quite an appeal to her while on the test track. Oddly, during her involvement in the facility one day, she was spotted talking to a couple of people outside the HQ. When Levovitch questioned her about it, Nadia just excused it saying it was nothing but random individuals interested about the company. Strangely, she would be absent a few times from the facility, but it didn't seem to question Levovitch at first as she returned on time the next day. However, as they came to the Island of Makana in the mid-2200s, Nadia would do the same thing again while over there. It was the only mysterious thing the team had witnessed from her at the time.

    As Qirex made their appearance in Makana during the opening season of the FX350 league, Nadia had made quite a stunning run with the craft, going through the paces against the other teams' newer models. With such a large and heavy craft out of the others, the maneuverability made it looked lightweight. She had won a large number of races, and by 2207, she became one of the most popular pilots to compete in the entire league. Her skills became quite a match-up with other elite pilots competing for the All-Star Championships, and as such, Nadia was obviously chosen to compete in the ASC with the 12 chosen pilots from every team. She was one of the main reasons why Qirex had again became so successful during the first decade of the 2200's, as they once again showed the world that they were still the most successful team on the planet, and that their arch rivals would not dare to challenge them. However, their arch rival company of Auricom Research Industries couldn’t stand the idea of Qirex's "Wildcard" being acceptable in races. To them, Nadia was a menace to the sport’s purity and spirit, saying that her performance in races is too “overpowering” for average pilots that may come across her. She was known to be an aggressive pilot since her appearance in the FX350 AGRL; it's no doubt that Qirex would use her as a wildcard in every tournament they entered and was frequently demanded to be banned from tournaments by Auricom as well as AG-Systems. Nadia saw this as an excuse for Auricom to have an advantage, and that they were scared to see Qirex have influence & dominance over the Anti-Gravity Racing League. Unfortunately for Auricom, the foundation would reject their complaints, yet Nadia's aggression in every race did show concerns to the race commission. Considering that issue and being pressured, the foundation chose to follow part of Auricom's demand by not allowing Nadia to enter a large number of races & tournaments in the standard AGRL events. Unsurprisingly, her and Qirex were not happy about it, yet she was still able to compete in the ASC.

    Nadia would see the annoyance of her team's arch rivals, relying now on her team's pilots at the time. Unfortunately, they were no match against their competitors, leaving her to now choose her own in 2209. What followed was a pilot with experience of controlling the craft's technology; not exactly for use of AG-racing, but mostly with space flight. Retired Russian Cosmonaut, Vadik Sidorov, was a former space pilot for Russia's Quantax Space Administration during the late 2180's. He was a transporter traveling to the moon and back and has seen some of the racing on the moon's surface as well as being part of it. When he retired space piloting in 2209, he continued with Qirex for a racing career in the FX400 League, having also experience with AG-Racecraft while on the moon and Mars. Vadik's experience mixing with space flight made him an acceptable pilot for the AGRL, and that his competition was no match for him, making him a reasonable choice for Nadia to take her place. In 2212, Nadia would surprisingly discover a young Qirex pilot during her visit to Ubermall back in East Makana, as the pilot's skill was almost similar to hers. This young Russian pilot was known as Afina Rusakova, and her skills were an influence by Nadia herself, being a big fan of her. A year before that, Nadia had also won the 2211 All-Star Championship, earning a platinum gold medal for her team and the championship title.

    By this time, Nadia had unstoppable teammates, and with her now back along her squad, they were the team's biggest assets in the AGRL, having Auricom sweating bullets once again during the race seasons. However, Auricom would fight back with a number of their best pilots, most notable in their lineup was Tyrrell Byron from the United States of America. In 2212, his teammate Rachel Vega, who was once an AG-Queen coming from the same country, would also become exceptional for the team. Both pilots from each team would continue to clash each other for the next few years in the FX400 league, and unfortunately for Qirex, Auricom's pilots would prevail against their very best. Vadik would struggle to keep ahead of Tyrrell in regular events, while Afina would lose against Rachel during a single tournament, getting eliminated by Auricom for the first time in her career. As Vadik & Afina continued to race, Nadia was back in Moscow involved in the main Qirex facility. What brought her back to Russia was an offer by Levovitch, still head of control for the company as she was given the opportunity to become co-director for the team. How she got the offer was for her choice of pilots; because Vadik, Afina, including other handpicked pilots on her squad were such great pilots, they were still unbeatable even without Nadia competing. She became Levovitch's apprentice behind the scenes, thinking about putting Nadia as co-director hoping to still lead Qirex to be the most influential and successful team on the circuit. As the offer stood, Nadia accepted it.

    Since Nadia's new position in the company, she had remained unknown to the public eyes of the AGRL, even to Levovitch on certain occasions. Word did come out on her new position which made Auricom nervous of what she may do, especially when she openly threatened them after being given the co-director seat. Plans from Qirex now started to change as some of their motives appear to be up to no good to the Belmondo Foundation. In early 2215, Qirex would round up team principals from other teams for a suspicious meeting back at their HQ. Whatever went on there was entirely unknown to teams supporting the race commission, but considering those teams are their arch rivals, it is certain that Qirex is gearing up for something big. Not only to undermine Auricom and the Belmondo Foundation, but also preparing for what will be a war of race teams in the FX500 Racing League.

    Born on December 29th 2184 in Vidigal, south of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Thiago Castillo was a chosen AG-pilot to join the professional stage after impressions during his 2 years of training/test piloting at Piranha HQ in Sao Paulo. During his childhood, he was raised on the safer parts of the favelas in Rio but became cautious. Ever since the second great depression, crime rates began to rise again in parts of the slums in the neighborhoods. But even after the depression, crimes still appeared around villages, slowly calming down around the mid-2180s and so on. Vidigal, despite modernization taking place in the main city of Rio, remained the same over the years, partially modernized with solar panels covering all roofs in the area as well as hologram ads lighting up sides of old buildings. Overall it was still one of the lowest parts or Rio, but oddly it became more of a tourist attraction.

    Growing up as a young teenager, Thiago was once interested in music as he owned his own guitar, practicing and playing on top of his complex or out on the streets below. He drew attention to his neighbors in the area, listening and enjoying the tunes he played near his home, sometimes walking and playing his guitar in different areas of his village only to get new groceries for his family. He did however manage to get girls for his string plucking talent, but unfortunately, they wouldn't last too long, moving on unsatisfied. When he did become a teenager, his interest in AG-Racing also emerged alongside when seeing the first test run of the Piranha FX300 Rockettooth model craft in the main city. Only once was he able to go to the modern city, seeing the craft in action for the first time. Immediately he tried to invest a small but cheap craft after watching the excitement, only to realize how tedious it was to even own one.

    Earning money wasn't so easy back in the slums but was in luck to have an uncle carry him in the city owning a luxurious bar located in the lower parts of Rio. Unfortunately, owning a small race craft was still a big fortune to come by, and instead took his part of being the entertainment playing his musical instrument in the bar for paying customers and visitors. As a young adult, Thiago began to stay with his uncle in the bar moving out of the slums and his parents' home. He only worked as a bartender alongside with a liquor mixing bot during his hours. During his free time however, he continued to play music to customers on a small stage, earning tips that way. His other sources of entertainment in the business were also seeing live races on television, and at the time, the FX300 league was in session. Still dreaming of becoming one with the AG-League, his dream would eventually come to him.

    New Years Eve for 2203 became a busy night at the bar, as racing fans gathered together to see a live televised raceday at the Amphisium in North America, eventually becoming the pre-installment of the FX350 league. Employees of the AG-Race commission including Piranha Advancements, were surprisingly at the bar, searching for individuals that may be interested in becoming an AG-Pilot. Not exactly hiring for Piranha but giving opportunities for a racing career. Just a few miles west in the large city of Sao Paulo was Piranha's main Headquarters, having an academy there for recruits around the continent/outside. Thiago of course was interested; he was given a brochure to an academy close to the HQ, and from this point on he was for sure to head over there immediately. Making an Agreement with the team employees, the clock had finally struck 12:00 A.M, Jan 1st 2203.

    Days after New Year's Day including a late birthday, Thiago headed to the Piranha AG-Academy in Sao Paulo, west of Rio to train himself on an AG-Craft. Though not exactly put on the pilot seat of Piranha's main AG-Craft, but rather a slower and smaller craft on a test circuit built through the city. While Piranha was a private team since the early A.G.R.C in the mid-21st century, they recently became more open to new pilots during the mid FX300 league. Team Principal, Zack Vilmã, was somewhat in need of new pilots at the time. Though relying on elite pilots Loana Silvaris and Esteban Dominguez for events in the league in Makana, more race events were appearing around parts of the world as traffic in Makana started to rise due to its returning popularity. Piranha only had a few pilots in their lineup compared to their competitors since the beginning of the century. Unable to poach pilots from other teams or hire experienced pilots looking for a successful team, Vilma would go the route of training his own, hoping to train up new pilots for the next generation. Offers were very limited however, only acquiring a couple small training craft for just one group of trainees. Thiago surprisingly was given the last offer from the men back at the bar, and Vilma expected him to become exceptional before piloting the main Rockettooth model craft exclusively. For over two years, Thiago would prove his worth on the test track. He graduated from the academy and was finally put on the pilot seat of the new FX350 model craft. However, more training was still required due to the handling and speed of the craft. But between all that, Thiago was still working at the bar back in Rio, until one day meeting an interesting person.

    Foreign flamenco dancer, Julieta Vasquez, coming from Spain was performing on the bar's stage where Thiago was in full attention of her performance. Thiago brought his Guitar to play his own music on stage, until he was given a favor by Julieta to play his Guitar on stage with her. He wasn't too familiar with flamenco music, but it was pretty simple as Julieta said to him. The two had a small relationship after performing/speaking with each other, until one day wearing a pilot uniform had Julieta asked him a question. In surprise, Julieta was interested in seeing an AG-Race craft in person, being a big fan. Though Piranha never wanted visitors unless they were involved in the academy, Thiago took her to the facility anyway.

    Thiago goes off again in training with Piranha as he showed Julieta his craft in the hanger. Unfortunately, workers in the hanger immediately ask her to leave. Thiago had no choice, but was unaware that she seemed to have an addiction to the sport overall. Both of them went their separate ways a day later as Julieta headed back to Europe. Thiago would have an interest in her in some way after their collaboration on stage, unsure if he'll ever meet her again once he gets selected for the AGRL. When a new season came, he was anxious of whether he'll make it to the international stage. With all that training for the past two years, it was uncertain if he'll ever get chosen comparing himself to other highly trained pilots alongside him. With only five pilots in his group, only 3 will make it. After all the anticipation, Thiago was one of the chosen to compete for Piranha, now traveling to America at the Amphisium for the 2205 opening season. Thiago showed enough promise towards director Zack Vilmã with his statistics back at the facility including the opening event. The other pilots that were chosen alongside, (Maxim Tsyzrev from Russia, and Emma Jokela from Finland) all traveled to the racing capital of the world in Makana soon right after the opening event.

    In 2206, almost a year racing officially in the FX350 league, Thiago would perform greatly under the Rapier class division, racing with professional contenders around his skill level. Earning a decent number of gold medals and sponsors, his strongest events were on the straight tracks, racing with raw power in the Speed & Drag Racing league Championships (VX400 AG-Drag Racing league). He soon met his matches in continuing tournaments. Piranha's rival team, Icaras enters in their best speed pilot, Edgar Lawrence from Great Britain, followed by Triakis pilot, Liana Morelli from Sicily, and eventually Van Uber pilot, Udo Von Falken from Switzerland. While beating Edgar and Liana in the first few seasons, Thiago couldn't keep up with Udo in the tournament finals, losing the gold medal including the tournament trophy. But despite his participation in speed championships and eventually out-matching Udo, Thiago would continue in standard league events, performing very well in circuit and combat based races. Eventually by the end of the season, Thiago unexpectedly gets chosen for the 2206 FX350 ASC. What became a tough decision from Vilma back at HQ, it was a tie up between Thiago and Maxim as to who would enter the ASC. Both pilots showed a lot of skill and podium streaks within regular events of the 2206 season. It was only their first year in the racing league, but Vilma was highly impressed by these new pilots racing for the company. However, sticking with his nationalism and the nationalism of Piranha, he chose the Brazilian pilot (Thiago) for this coming ASC. It turned out to be a wise decision. By the end of the Championship, Thiago earned platinum silver for the season coming in second place, but unfortunately it was still considered a loss for the team, losing to their moderate rival, Icaras. Jean Belmondo, a relative of the foundation, was the pilot to earn platinum gold for this season's championship.

    Icaras would continue to be the champions of the ASC for the next 2 seasons. But by the 2207 season of the FX350, it would be Thiago's last year in that division, moving on to the FX400 racing league. Vilma's second choice, Maxim Tsyzrev would take his place for the FX350, but would do poorly overall unfortunately. Throughout the years of the FX400 league (2207-14) Thiago's career would still skyrocket above the ranks in the Rapier division, even reuniting with Julieta as a new wingman for his squad in late 2209. Julieta would become an AG-Pilot surprisingly, spending some of her time back in Europe flying AG-Craft from FEISAR, only to be selected by Piranha for her fair skill level, 3 years after she had met Thiago back in Rio. She was still an amateur, but somehow Vilma accepted her for his lineup, charmed by her dancing talents and knowing her celebrity standards in Spain/Portugal. Following soon after would be Thai pilot, Chayond Puntashima, originally from Harimau International only to be poached by Piranha back in 2209, offering a better paycheck while also showing payback for Harimau's activists who tried to break into his 'Azteca' Casino in Las Vagas, over rumors of him keeping rare animals for entertainment. While Julieta knew Thiago, there were few team events the two could compete together, including their speed classes while she was still in Flash. This left Thiago to only choose Chayond as a secondary pilot, but he would rather go on as an independent for most events of the FX400 still. Thiago would instead train Julieta himself around Makana or back at HQ in Sao Paulo as she improved overtime by 2212.

    That same year, Thiago would push for Phantom class speed events in the racing league, and throughout the years of the FX400, Piranha made him an excellent and primary choice of taking the team above their own rankings with the other racing teams in regular events. Competing for the All-Star Championships however was another story; since his entry in the league in 2208, Thiago did very poorly in number of ASCs. French Pilot, Amy Senand was supposed to take on the championships for the FX400. Unfortunately, an elimination accident would have her out of commission for two races, only for Thiago to take her place temporarily. He would get a taste of how difficult these division pilots were, not doing so well for the two races absent. Eventually, Amy would get back into the Championship, coming in 4th place overall for the 2207 season. However, she would retire right after the ending season, only for Thiago to take her place almost permanently. He raced ferociously in the ASC, but luck was never on his side up until 2211. He earned platinum bronze overall, but it would be the last time he would ever stand on the podium for the ASC. It didn't help much now that his VX rivals, Liana Morelli and Udo Von Falken had entered alongside, almost making themselves up after a few encounters on the drag strip. What soon followed was him now getting replaced in 2215. Latvian pilot, Andris Ozolins would make a major comeback for Piranha in the ASC, earning their only platinum gold medal for the FX400 league. Either way, Thiago would give up on the championship events, continuing in standard events including participation in the VX Division.

    During his involvement in the ASC, one of his competitors would turn out to be an overall friend due to the team's alliance with Auricom Recearch industries. Supporting with Auricom pilot Tyrrell Byron in certain events, they had formed at least a small friendship sometime back in 2212, meeting each other outside of racing. Throughout the events they happened to meet each other in, they would race like teammates to try and double down on their rival teams from Qirex to Assegai. Still, one of them had to take a position for a certain race, going back to racing against each other only to forgive and complement themselves by the end of an event. In the ASC however, they remained competitive as their teams' loyalty were on the line, racing for the final prize of the season. Still, even while passing eye to eye in certain rounds, they both give a nod in their cockpits, showing they were still allies. Thiago once said to Tyrrell during one of the championships. "I will still be your friend, even if you fire a barrage of rockets at me in these races. But if you do eliminate me this season, then you owe me a drink afterwards."

    In 2217, Thiago Castillo continued with the race conflict against Qirex's conglomerate. However, they hardly faced them over the past two years as they continued racing in normal events using the new Razorfin model craft. Thiago has earned less than 25 medals throughout his career including 2 medals in the SFC. (G12/8S/4B/1PS/1PB) While good overall in regular events around Makana and parts of the world, he wasn't the best out of the elite pilots he's faced or compared. He falls short going up against most during the ASC, but that's not to say that he didn't have his own talents and or special maneuvers that even a standard professional pilot wouldn't pull off. With teammates, Julieta was still his partner, now positioned as secondary when Chayond officially went Independent in 2211. She now holds her own in both single or team events with the same skill level as Thiago, barely reaching elite rank. The VX league was still his strength out of the events from the FX division earning gold there still. However, he would always still stand next to one of his main rivals on the podium in most of the seasons, more specifically with Udo Von Falken from Van Uber. Thiago will continue to show what he's capable of in the FX500 racing league and will promise to do better for Piranha by the next decade.

    While most pilots who had come from a low paying job or even a well-paid career to seek wealth, reputation and or amusement in the race commission of the AGRL, Julieta Vasquez was a big surprise to most people. Born on June 11th, 2185 in the low parts of Barcelona Spain, Julieta was known as a famous flamenco dancer across the country. As a little girl, Juileta was driven to flamenco music, spending most of her life teaching herself the basics of dance. She got her first moment of fame during a talent performance at her highschool, and while going to college, she brought her talent even further. She got her shot of being a star in 2203, just two years before the announcement of the FX350 league. For several years, Julieta had made a name for herself. She appeared and even hosted shows on Spanish television, where almost everyone saw her as a Spanish celebrity.

    It was people like her that others didn't really expect to become a pilot and throwing away a long going career for a dangerous sport like AG-Racing. However, not mentioning to anyone, Julieta had an addiction to AG-Racing during her career. She had no thought of being a pilot at the time, but rather enjoyed the heart of the sport on television during her own free time as much as possible. Between the years of 2203 to 2207, Julieta had traveled to other countries overseas, most notably in South America, where she extended her fame all over the continent. It was when in 2208 while taking a trip to Rio in Brazil where she kept quiet for months. All of a sudden she returns to Europe only to arrive in France, heading to what was a FEISAR facility outside of Paris.

    The people of Spain were surprised when they found out their famous dancer had an interest in the fastest sport on earth. When Julieta went to Brazil, showing herself around bars and dancehalls around Rio, she was met by a Brazilian pilot named Thiago Castillo. Thiago was still a training pilot for Piranha.A, but also had a talent in music, taking part time in one of the bars as a guitarist. They had met when Thiago showed some of his guitar playing skills with the Spanish Dancer. Juileta would notice him with the instrument, wondering if he knew how to play her genre and asked him to join her on stage. Thiago wasn't too familiar with flamenco guitar playing, but Juileta gave him tips and had a song playing in the background as an example until he got the rhythm of it, making up a riff afterward. She had made some relationship with the Brazilian pilot, not knowing he was one until finding out when she came back, seeing him in his pilot overalls.

    As a fan of the sport, Juileta frequently asked Thiago for a visit to the Piranha HQ in Sao Paulo to watch AG-racecraft in action and in person. She gave herself free time with him to at least check out the facility and sidelines taken by a hover cab to a local test track close to the facility, able to see high-speed craft including Piranha's own craft out on the course. Julieta was amazed by what she saw and heard, hearing the sounds of the craft pass by and echo out in the distance. The craft were going by so fast from the stands that she could barely make out the craft aside from the red/yellow colors. Julieta wanted to view them up close, asking to see Thiago's craft stored in the hanger bay close to them. However, going in the hangers was prohibited to visitors as Thiago stated to her. Still, he rather show her a quick glimpse. Taking a back gate in the facility's test track, they spot an open hanger that stored 2 craft, one of which was Thiago's, luckily.

    What Julieta saw was almost breathtaking; a craft viewed from up-close and in person was something she never thought would see, even for her celeb standards. It was smaller than she thought it was, but still a large craft overall. As she wanted to get close and possibly touch it, hanger crews spotted her, asking her who she was. Thiago explained, even telling she was a visitor, but the workers still told her she was in a restricted area as they try to lead her out. He didn't know what else to tell them as they approached her and carried her out, only for Thiago to go with her, still on his break. Outside of the HQ, Julieta was almost lovestrucked by the Rockettooth model craft. From watching the sport on televised events to seeing a craft in action and upclose for the first time, it was love at first site she thought. She now wanted to know what it's like, telling Thiago while traveling back to Rio. All he could say, "It's a head rush."

    Julieta's addiction to AG-Racing would get the best of her that day, and is kind of showed in front of Thiago when she asked about how it was like to fly one. Unfortunately for her, Piranha was a private company/team. Though the team was now recruiting pilots, only a couple individuals would get chosen or found, and Thiago was one of them. With only a few training craft at the time, Team Principal, Zack Vilma, wanted the best out of his pilots in training, and only a small handpicked few would make it to the international stage. Just days after seeing the facility, Julieta headed back to Europe, saying farewell to Thiago back at the bar. Soon after, he would get chosen for the FX350 Racing league, heading to North America for an opening season and to Makana out in the Pacific.

    Julieta heads back but doesn't land in her home country of Spain. She instead booked a flight a bit further out east, landing in France. However, this wasn't another independent tour as her drop-off was to a FEISAR main facility outside of Paris. Unlike Piranha, FEISAR was a public company/team for anyone to become a AG-pilot, having multiple HQs around the world that were only temporary spots for communities. Julieta made a decision to register a slot in FEISAR's AG-Academy to now train as a pilot, making her dancing career now as a hobby. Still she continued dancing even while now piloting an AG-craft. Fans of her were surprised to find out what she was doing at some point, days involved in the FEISAR Academy. She hardly ever came back to Spain as she temporarily stayed in the French region to continue training. About a year later she already graduated from the facility, but she was only taking her new career across the continent. Overall, Julieta became an amateur pilot for FEISAR.

    Between the years of 2208 - 09, Julieta experiences AG-Racing first hand in regional events across the European country. Though racing for FEISAR, she was no professional pilot, yet putting herself on a craft even while training back at the academy did she ever felt fulfilled. It took her a while to get use too, but FEISAR's easy controls helped her reached an intermediate skill level in amateur competition. Her progression in the region was quite decent, but her reputation was largely increased. Old fans of her dancing would boost her attention all around the Spanish country of Spain, coming back home for an event that took place at the sharp rock edges of Fort Gale. Julieta took a shot at a professional AG-Track for the first time with her FEISAR competitors, surprisingly doing very well compared to her opponents she left behind on a number of laps. Her few years of flying AG-craft would finally show in this very raceday as her skills would reach at an advance level, almost good enough for the professional AGRL taking place in Makana. Just as she finished her race and leaving her craft for the FEISAR crews, a sponsor was given to her as a reward for dominating the lead. This would prove her decision to stay racing, now given the opportunity to race with FEISAR on the international stage and earning her trip to the Makana islands to race with semi-professional competition.

    Though coming in late on the 2208 FX Season, Julieta would use the rest of season to practice run on a number of tracks with her FEISAR craft given permission from the Makanian AG-Academy, housing her team for training pilots. Knowing full well of what may come ahead of her in terms of competition, Julieta began to master her skills with advanced pilots in pre-league events across the island. Teams like AG-Systems, Goteki 45, including Piranha were mostly her opponents in pre-events of the FX400, starting herself there. Julieta would see the familiar Rockettooth model craft once again after two and a half years since her visit to Brazil. Racing against it in Vineta K had her witness its sheer speed compared to her FEISAR craft, even on Venom Class speeds. It was the craft she fell in love with at first site back in San Paulo, doing anything she could to keep up with it using the high handling to counter its speed on oncoming turns. An offer to join the team would be her determining wish after the season. But from Piranha, a semi-private team overall would be difficult to impress, trying to earn a spot with them for the next FX400 season.

    Julieta went on pushing herself with the X4 model FEISAR craft during the last days of her unofficial season. She gained some impression from locals around Makana but was hardly a showstopper, not even as much when she was a dancer. While she was no AG-Queen pilot, only a few spectators recognized her from her old career, giving her a small boost of recognition overall. With her efforts at the end of the 2208 season, she would receive another sponsor from aicom (aimi). However, her most ambitious offers were team invites, proving her skills to other teams. Out of 4 invitations, one invite got her the most excited. Just weeks in her preseason, Piranha Advancements now called for her for a free spot on their team. She immediately transferred after the season.

    Julieta would get sent back to San Paulo in Brazil to Piranha's HQ once again to train herself on their latest craft. However, that meant meeting team principal Zack Vilma for the first time to introduce her to the company. He had a very welcoming appearance as Julieta stepped in his office, smiling as she shook his hand like he was excited to see her. He seemed to have seen something on Julieta since he only shakes a transferred pilot's hand after they've proven themselves with his team's craft on the test track. Surprisingly, Vilma knew who she was before she became a pilot. While he doesn't speak out about it, he has seen her dancing before on Spanish television and was sort of a fan of this foreign celebrity. Recognizing her name from FEISAR and seeing her race performances up against his team's own craft, Vilma wanted to include her on his lineup, getting the best out of her before the new season of the FX400 league. He didn't realize how far in love Julieta was with their craft, gladly granting her wish to pilot it herself, expecting the best. An elite pilot was offered to train Julieta to the fullest, and she was surprised to see who it would be.

    After two years since they last seen each other, Julieta meets Thiago Castillo once more now as an elite pilot in the FX400 Racing League and a All-Star Championship contender. Meeting her again, he couldn't believe that she was now a pilot specifically for Piranha. With already a friendly relationship, it was destined that these two would become teammates in the league. However, that was not so much the case when Thiago had chosen Thai pilot, Chayond Puntashima for most team events based on their same skill level. Julieta would instead become a backup pilot temporarily until Chayond decided to go independent in events from the FX400 league, taking his place. Going back to when they first met again, during the closed season, Julieta needed to train herself now with the Rockettooth model craft, having Thiago become her instructor around the test track. With only a month and a half before the next season, she got use to the faster but harder controlling craft. Already having experience, she adapted to the new controls of her craft right away and followed Thiago's techniques on the course. She would become good overall to Vilma watching over the two on the track. Thiago was one of his best, not counting his progress in the ASC, but trusting him to get her to an exceptional level for the team to succeed in standard events. Only her progress in the league would tell if she was the right choice for the company/team.

    Making her official debut at the Amphiseum in North America, Julieta was now seen wearing the Red/Yellow color scheme, matching the colors of her nation and even some of her dance dresses. However, she was now experiencing real competition, and as such, she began to struggle on events through her first few seasons of the FX400 league. Beating her way and getting use to the aggressive pilots in the league, Julieta would then start to race impressively. By then, she was getting use to the speed of the craft and taking the best racing line for her to catch up with the skilled pilots. By 2214, she had made herself quite professionally, and was weaving her AG-Craft to the front of the top 3. She was gaining fans as an AG-Racer, only to double her fame from her old dancing career which had her constantly interviewed during press conferences and media. Her craft was also noticeable to race fans using the sharp teeth marked livery giving a message to her competitors that she will "take a bite out of the competition." By the time of the FX500 league in 2215 and piloting a new model craft, Julieta would soon earn gold for the first time in her racing career. Winning a European Tournament of 7 races including her home track of Fort Gale, she barely wins by 2 points ahead her team's arch rival, Assegai Developments.

    Currently in 2218, Julieta Vasquez still races in the FX500 Racing League along with Thiago Castillo. Since team rivalries had escalated since the inaugural season, Piranha was in the middle of an all-out AG-race war between the Belmondo Foundation teams and Qirex's Conglomerate. Piranha, while allied with Auricom Research, they try to avoid as much of the eliminator events as possible, handling their opposition in actual racing. Julieta would follow this route to avoid destroying her craft in what she thought was a pointless war over the race commission. She believed in pure racing and hopes for the best from the Belmondo foundation. Either way, Piranha's rivals stayed neutral overall in the racing league. Throughout her 9-year progress, Julieta comes out average for Piranha's standards, only winning less than 10 medals throughout her seasons. (2G/3S/5B) Still, Julieta didn't care much about winning; while she was competitive at times, all she really enjoys was the head rush she gets on a high-speed craft. Dancing may have been her first love, but with AG-racing, she was engaged.

    Born on December 2nd, 2189 in Bangkok Thailand, Chayond Puntashima had a personal destiny to become the best AG-Pilot in the world. Chayond was obsessed with Anti-Gravity, and had saved himself some cash to by an AG-Racecart at the age of 12. He had trained with a group of junior AG-Pilots, setting up their own line of modified AG-karts to compete in junior grand prix across the country, soon going around Asia. The group set up their own racing team where Chayond was chosen to lead throughout his teen years. As he got older, the craft became larger, faster, and custom modified, mastering flight on any makeshift circuit at a young age.

    Considered a prodigy to most, he reaches professional at age 16, getting recognition all across Southern Asia. He was close to competing in the upcoming FX350 league, already trained to be elite requiring not much else if recommended to the training facilities. Many teams from the league offered to hire him, but surprisingly he would turn down all of them only to sign himself with the environmental team of Harimau International. After filling his first sponsor for remaining amateur races, he sets a waypoint to Malaysia where he'll choose to race with one of the most underestimated teams in the AGRL. Why he chose to race for this team was mostly for regional purposes, but as he continued to race, he would almost regret his decision.

    Chayond already had the experience as an AG-Pilot, but piloting the Harimau craft was another thing. Traveling to Makana for the first time, he took his new craft on the circuit of Anulpha Pass, privately test piloting the craft on his own. Despite changing over to a faster speed class, Chayond continued to keep racing on Venom and continued to race at Anulpha. He continuously beats his own personal time on every lap until beating the lap time record. No matter how many times he had broken his own record by hundredths of a second, Chayond was not satisfied pushing the limits on the Harimau craft, but in actual race events he showed to be victorious for the team most of the time. Chayond was considered Harimau's wildcard pilot during the first few years of the FX350 league. With every tournament he has entered, he would come out with either the gold or silver medal in every podium finish. His progress from his first year of racing brought him a spot for the Season Final Championship in 2206, but unfortunately his competitors proved to be much faster and resilient than his opponents in regular events. It didn't help much that he would get eliminated once in every season championship, bringing spectators' expectations to a low margin. Nothing would come by him other than a few more sponsors to sign himself with, but it didn't seem enough to satisfy him in his 3 years, more so by the capabilities of his team's craft.

    The H4 was a nimble craft overall, rivaling that of assegai with similar statistics. While powered by a biofuel energy cell over plasma, solar, or even plutonium powered reactors from a few teams, Harimau lacked in acceleration that wasn't in fault of weight. The craft didn't have enough power to jumpstart quicker than the other power reactors. However, Chayond's only issue was its top speed, mostly for his personal lap time in Anaulpha Pass. Being a perfectionist, Chayond believed he could go faster on venom class speeds, and because of the mostly straight forward sections of the track, he didn't need all the craft's handling, wanting to exchange it for top speed. Chayond was willing to transfer teams, and it would appear that one team was already eyeing him for that opportunity. What followed was an unexpected meeting at the end of the 2208 season. During an after party event after the closing ceremony at the Amphiseum in Las Vegas USA, Chayond was by himself eating at a Asian buffet section until this person in a red/yellow suit approached him. It was the team principal himself from Piranha Advancements, Zack Vilma. While also visiting his casino in the same city, Vilma had taken part during the ceremony with his racing team lineup of pilots. He had eyed Chayond during his speed lap trial from the ledges near the track, noticing his skills and performing barrel rolls on sections around the park. Taking the opportunity to encourage what was Harimau's best pilot, Vilma attempted to convince him to join Piranha's racing team, promising more wealth of paychecks including a much faster craft that would put Harimau's craft to shame. Chayond wanted more speed overall; having frustration pushing the H4 in Anulpha Pass, he was easily convinced when shown a hologram preview of Piranha's Rockettooth model craft. He was impressed with the specs, given one final offer; Zack would write him a paycheck upfront on his table to tease, promising more like it if he transferred his skills in a Piranha AG-craft. Chayond didn't need any more reason to race for them, convinced by the craft alone. He abandons Harimau wanting better success, and shook Vilma's hand to seal the deal. He would transfer a week after, leaving his craft/ suit in Malaysia to head for Brazil in South America.

    Director of Harimau International, Manjula Vamatharen, wasn't too happy to see a great pilot on his team go. With Chayond now absent for future SFC events of the FX350, he was soon replaced by Kiwi pilot, Ian Cooper soon after. Not only was Chayond leaving Harimau for Piranha, he was now moving on to compete for the FX400 series for the next season. There was no regret from transferring, but to Vilma it was payback for Harimau itself. After break-in attempts at his casino from the company's activist over rumored rare animals being kept there, Vilma had the opportunity to steal one of their best on their racing team knowing full well he had scored a highly skilled pilot. He met the pilot again, landing and heading for their main HQ in Sao Paulo Brazil. Not needing to introduce himself or the craft, Vilma right away showed Chayond his new craft for the FX400 racing league at the training facility. The craft's livery was much different than the standard Rockettooth design; it had a white base coat with pulse like red/yellow stipes giving it a unique look from the rest. Vilma leaves him to suit up, knowing what to do by getting a familiarity of the craft's controls on the test track. Testing it on a phantom speed class in the open, the craft felt immensely fast compared to Harimau's H4 model including sounding more louder using a different reactor/engine. Knowing right away he felt that the handling was less maneuverable, using the airbrakes often on the track turns. Still, he loved and got use to the craft right away, using the rest of the closed season to practice run on the facility course once more.

    With the new season approaching, Chayond was prepared to show what he could do with his team craft. However there was another thing he had in mind and that was beating his record back at Anulpha Pass, Makana. His debut with Piranha during the reopening ceremony at the Amphiseum surprised a few fans, but most thought he deserved to race for a better, more well known team to boost his reputation across the globe. Harimau would notice their last star pilot on the other team, but showed now anger whatsoever being easily forgiving of the transfer. Chayond was always ready for competition in every season, feeling no different on another team. When landing on Makana, he continued what he did best by dominating standard events of the FX400 league.

    Piranha never had such a young pilot race for them, turning heads including Zack Vilmã's who was greatly impressed by the young 21 year old Thai pilot mastering his craft. In 2210, Chayond would become elite ranked, but was long overdue based on his already elite skill when racing for Harimau. While he had competed in the SFC in the FX350 division, unfortunately for him a spot would already get taken for the FX400 series, having Brazilian pilot, Thiago Castillo compete under Piranha for the SFC. However, Thiago himself would choose him as a secondary pilot on his squad, followed by Spanish pilot, Julieta Vasquez. Though only racing alongside in a few team events in the 2211 season, by 2212, Chayond would choose to race independently, going back to the FX350 division/series.

    No one knew why he downgraded a league, but it would appear he would have unfinished business back at Anulpha Pass. Seeking to beat his own speed lap record again on Venom class, Chayond would now tackle it with one of Piranha's 350 league craft. He could feel more of a top speed boost with the new craft on a restricted speed class, taking once again every possible chance to perform quick barrel rolls over small bumps and passing all speed pads on the track. For a number of laps he tried over and over, given enough shield energy to use. Eventually, Chayond would break his own record by another second, feeling like no one will ever beat it. His speed lap record was 30.82 and was almost an impossible lap time for any pilot including himself to beat on Venom class. His record would make a headline including a cover on Float Magazine, earning the nickname, "Zico" by Piranha. Zico was a name of a Japanese AG Systems pilot back in the AGRC in the mid 21st century. Zico "Nana-San" Nanasawa once flew a Pir-Hana Speed model craft in the 2050 AGRC season, pushing the limits around the Altima VII track in Canada, North America. Legend has it that he has pulled off the fastest/unbeatable speed time on the circuit, going around it on a speed lap time of 52 seconds on Venom class. However, there was no such record to prove it, yet the story had been told for many years since the early F3600 era with no other pilot being able to beat it in the same speed class craft. Here at Anulpha, Chayond had done the same thing earning the nickname and setting a world record time. Only the greatest AG-Pilot could possibly beat his time with the same ship and speed class, but was unlikely a pilot from Piranha could ever beat it. Soon after, Chayond was ready for more competition.

    Chayond would soon switch over to a higher speed class and still remained successful, earning more sponsors. The 2213 season would have him come back into the FX400 league, continuing his dominance in open events there. He was still elite rank, making him menacing to most opponents on other teams. Despite having everyone on the track walking on their hind legs, one teenage pilot would try to stand up against him. Coming from Piranha's main rival teams, Irish pilot, Jacob Reilly was one of Icaras' feistiest pilots, yet was only an amateur at best. Confronting Chayond in a few events of the league, Jacob would always get defeated every time. But despite the disadvantage with the Thai pilot, he never gave up, knowing his Icaras craft could take on Piranha. Chayond however would eventually lose to Jacob few years later into the FX500 racing league. With the Irish pilot almost coming up to his level in the new league, one thing's for sure that a heated rivalry would finally develop between the two.

    2217 would become a slowdown for Chayond in the current FX500 racing league. With an AG-War carrying out between the Belmondo foundation and Qirex, including more pilots reaching an even rank on his division, Chayond's top 3 placing streak would eventually be hard to make. He has hoped for a spot for the SFC but was never chosen, and as for the battle for the race commission, he doesn't get involved in eliminator events. Earning around 20 medals, they were mostly all gold from standard race events and trials (17G/3S/0B). He is considered one of the very best of Piranha but hardly ever gets much attention like the pilots of the SFC. His only famous achievements in his career was his speed lap record in Anulpha Pass, still holding the fastest Venom lap time with a Piranha Rockettooth model craft till this day. Overall, Chayond was not a mainstream pilot on the team, but was highly successful getting mostly attention from Southeast Asia. Rumor has it that he will transfer to another AG-team after the 2217 season, but so far it was unknown which team got his attention or if the rumor is even true. One thing's for sure was that he will still continue to race in the chaotic FX500 league.

    Born on April 24th, 2170 in the town of Guaymas in Sonora Mexico, Ricardo or Rico Martinez is the older brother of independent Assegai pilot turned Piranha, Angélica Martinez. Most of his child and teen life was nothing but serving his family’s grocery market, and while he did had some responsibility, he would mostly avoid doing work. During that time, Angélica wasn't born yet, having another sibling brother helping him around the store but would mostly do all the work while Rico slacked off. Overtime he was eventually sick of it, wanting to get away from the family business but couldn’t seem to escape his father’s shackles even if he proposed to move on from the business. When the FX150 Amateur Racing League came around in the local area, Rico volunteered for one job to deliver food supplies at the event. At first, he wanted to go just to see the races out in the desert, very rarely seeing AG-technology and has never seen actual racing in person. While he managed to deliver and receive pay at the event, he would disobey his father of coming back right away and proceeded to walk around the tents set upped there. One tent that got his attention however, would turn out to be recruiting booth for the company of Piranha Advancements, curious to see what it’s about.

    While there, he met what looked to be a businessman standing next to the tables, greeting Rico as he approached. The person encouraged him for an opportunity to test pilot the company's craft; even Rico made a comment about himself of where he worked and what he did in his lifetime. As of course, the person took advantage suggesting that working with Piranha can make him more money and will give him a great experience piloting a craft if interested in the program, including a possible chance to have the skills to become a professional AG-Pilot for the team. This would mean that he had to travel a long way to Mexico City at a Piranha sub-HQ to confirm his signing, only to take certain health procedures to even be able to handle the movements of the craft. While heading back to the truck he thought about telling his family about going south of Mexico, only to realize that they would obviously say no to going down there and instead continue working at the market. On a second thought, he decided not to go back home and instead heads south of Mexico, possibly to convince his family that he could get paid more for testing a craft and bringing back a paycheck to prove it. This would turn out to be a bad decision, having his family believed that he was kidnapped, only to come back over a month later with a paycheck and pilot suit, disappointing mostly his father. After having an argument and facing a big punishment, Rico chose to escape his family and their business anyway, transferring over to the team’s main HQ in San Paulo, not regretting his choice. Unfortunately, he would miss the birth and growth of his new baby sister, leaving the Mexican country at age 21.

    Over the past 16 years, including his time back in Mexico City, Rico was involved what is known to be Piranha’s test pilot program for new coming recruits to test pilot prototypes of the FX300-350 Rockettooth model craft in the 2190s. Overtime, Rico was involved with the development of the team’s official racecraft for the Anti-Gravity Racing League, testing craft for the FX300, all the way to the start of the FX400 League in 2207. However, Rico never took part in any of the seasons in every AGRL, despite building up experience during his time at the team’s HQ. Though he had hoped to compete with the professional racers in any league, the company didn’t seem to accept him in their lineups, let alone notice his skills on the testing grounds. By 2209 unfortunately, Rico would be let go from the company, returning back home to Guaymas Mexico, only to suffer the consequences that his family put upon him. Meanwhile, his already grown up little sister, Angélica, would take a similar interest in racing, believing she could get into the AGRL by somehow convincing her parents. Having a reckless/boyish personality, they just couldn't stop her ambitions even as a child, giving her the permission which confounded Rico and leaving her responsible to what she might face. Angélica wanted to prove she was strong and fearless enough to where she could do things that looked out of her limits, looking back at her rough childhood. What had her ability to go was with Rico's earnings, being able to take her to the Island of Makana to train on an AG-craft with training teams like FEISAR or AG-Systems. They both flew over there, only for Rico to come back home and leaving Angélica to stay on the island at the main academy. She would go on as an independent pilot, racing on an Assegai craft as her choice for the next 5 years in the FX400 league.

    Rico was already in his early 40s by the 2210s, but was still in good shape even after test piloting and carrying crates around the market. His punishment by his father was soon lifted, but continued to work at the market even after ending his shift, along working with the other brother with heavy lifting jobs. Eventually by 2215, months before the FX500 league's first season, Angélica would come back home, only to surprise Rico by showing a Piranha uniform with an FX500 league badge. Angélica had transferred from Assegai to Piranha, now focusing on the team aspect of racing after Assegai restricted her from team races due to not being an African Nation's pilot. All this time she had been racing solo with the use of an Assegai craft, but has earned reputation from parts of the world, mostly in Latin America. However, she was never a real Assegai pilot to begin with, leaving her out of more tournaments involving the African pilots. Angelica wanted to race with pride for a team which had her joining Piranha Adv for the FX500. However, even though she came home to be with her family, Angélica wanted Rico to come with her, trying again for a spot with the team officially as he still had experience and the dream to race with the best pilots around the world. Feeling like Rico had worked hard enough, the father decided to let his son go. After meeting with team principal, Zack Vilmã for another chance with his sister, Angélica, Rico would officially become selected.

    Ricardo and Angélica became a squad of two for the opening season of 2215 at the Amphiseum, standing with other pilots on the team including another duo, Thiago Castillo, and Julieta Vasquez. The two were ready to take on the season as a team together, racing in the red and yellow colors of the fastest ships in the league. Angélica took time to get use to the team craft in the first speed runs of the ceremony, while Rico was right at home with the new craft, discovering more maneuverable controls and boosted acceleration. Despite coming in the racing league for the first time, he considered himself as a veteran test pilot, test piloting Piranha craft for the other leagues having years of experience. Still, with his sister being a professional pilot, she had the same amount of skill as her brother. Because of this, his skills weren't really elite like famous AGRL veterans in the league currently. Rico will still need to face other contenders in the league in order to prove his experience racing. As for Angélica, she had to get use to racing as a team from now on.

    Angelica Luisa Martinez was born on January 4th, 2191 in the town of Guaymas Sonora Mexico. She was born in a medium size family, consisting of 2 older brothers, as one of her brothers happens to be an AG-test pilot for Piranha during the years of the FX150 amateur league. Her brother, Ricardo "Rico" Martinez was just a volunteer to supply food during the time the FX150 league began marking makeshift races around the Mexican country.

    In 2190 Racing began showing up around the Martinez's town while the family owned a business of a small market just a couple miles where the racing took place. The family thought it will help their business if they were to supply for the league bringing in any money from the event, however they had no fond with the sport considering the cause of the second great depression. 21yr old Rico asked for the delivery, going by himself with a truck full of groceries from the shop to take to the hosted event. It was the last time they ever saw from him, only to comeback a month later wearing a uniform of one of the teams that had competed. The parents were not happy, worried about what had happen to him for so long and not coming back with what he had sold. Rico suddenly pulled out a wad of cash of his currency, surprising the family of how he earned this money, realizing he had been in the amateur league as a test pilot for Piranha. The parents were still upset with him however, strictly having him to quit from racing for not telling them where he had went. But Rico disagreed with them and continued to test with Piranha back in Brazil, rather piloting test craft than selling groceries all day.

    As years went by and Angelica being born, their son was out racing while the family continued working at the store. Angelica started working around the store when she turned 5yrs old, and had mostly supplied and brought food to certain areas of town with her father and only sibling, only to discover her second brother Rico during that same year. Angelica began asking questions about him, only to have her parents still upset and confused about leaving the business. Despite how much money he'd made, they won't have another member of the family racing in what they call "floating death traps".

    Angelica began to feel curious about the sport her older brother was in, even feeling as though he was having more fun out where ever he was. She had an unusual personality compared to the other little girls in her town. Shy may not had looked like it, but she became a Tomboy while growing up. Her childhood was difficult, having to feel bullied by other boys while going to school, only to try and talk back believing she could be as tough and crazy as them, developing her somewhat boyish traits.

    She was peer pressured to do troubling things, only to prove her childhood bullies / friends she'll do any dare they would tell her. If she were to impress the boys, they had her do things they believe were crazy even for them. The dumbest dares she ever did impressing them was diving in a puddle of mud, matador with a wild rooster, even eating a ghost pepper, all of which she didn't enjoy. The worst she tried doing was using a hoverbike to jump over boxes on a small makeshift ramp. While speeding down a hill in her neighborhood with other kids watching, she had jumped the row of boxes but unfortunately came short. She loses the landing and falls off her bike scraping her elbow and knee. The boys there just watched her only to laugh as she started to cry and run back home, feeling embarrassed. Only a few times she got in trouble by her parents, as Angelica didn't try doing anything stupid again, but still felt judged. Never there was a time she was interested in things girls like, even rejecting to wear a dress during her quinceañera at age 15. When entering highschool, she always hung out with the guys, cutting her hair short at one point which only upsetted her parents more. No matter what her parents said, she wanted to live life young & reckless.

    Her parents were strict overall. It was kind of a reason why her brother may had chose to become a pilot as they were only interested in their own terms and what they think is best for their children, one of which was not high velocity AG-Racing. When Angelica was a teenager, it became a surprise to see that the son had came back to the market, only to find out he was dismissed from the AGRL and team. Rico was punished however, as he was never let into racing again or leave the store under his family's rules. While Rico began working around the shop again, 18yr old Angelica with her hair back long, began questioning him about the league, and how it was like to pilot an AG-race-craft. "It was the greatest experience I ever had" Rico said in Spanish. He assumed that Angelica was interested, and began telling his stories of his involvement at the Piranha HQ in Sao Paulo.

    While he was at the event years ago, he said that he met with a business person from the Piranha company/team. Rico wanted to get away from his previous job and was why he volunteered to go to the race event in the first place, Piranha had promised him they would make it worth his while if he were to sign with the team, and immediately took the offer, continuing his new career as a test pilot. However, he couldn't compete for the FX400 league during the 2207 season.

    Angelica said to him, "I bet I can make it in the professional league" as Rico began to chuckle, thinking she was joking, but as he looked at her, she was serious of her words. "Mama and Papa would never let you race, they would be too concern of you than they were to me" Rico explained to her."And how is a sweet girl like you would want to compete in a big sport like this, they won't take you seriously."
    Angelica responded: "I can be loco sometimes, almost like you. You think I'm too weak and soft, but that's what I want them to think. I want extreme moments in life, feeling speed and adrenaline."

    Angelica wasn't bluffing; she may have been too nice and safe around her parents, but Angelica was courageous, on a count that she was picked on by boys during school when she was a child, and tried showing them that she wasn't too much like the other girls locally, becoming a Tomboy. She wanted to prove that she could be as crazy as them and what else but to compete for the FX400 league. All her brother could say to her was: "Well you only live once. Try telling that to Mama and Papa."

    Like what Ricardo expected, Angelica's Parents disagreed with her. She tried to beg them (speaking in Spanish): "Why can't I race? If Rico can do it, then so can I"
    Papa: "You have more important things to do in your life, than risking it on a death race"
    Mama: "Your brother may have raced in this sport, but that doesn't mean you can too."
    Angelica: "Mama, Papa, please, he may have not told you where he was going, but I'm asking myself to you, please let me compete? I can be just as good as everyone else."
    Papa: "Well where you gonna go? You can't cross the border to America or go out in the ocean by yourself."
    Angelica thinks as she stared back at her brother, having an idea: "Rico can take me. There's this Island called Makana were most of this racing is taking place. He could give me the money he has earned, and I can take care of myself while I'm there."
    Her Papa thought about it with no choice: "…. Ok, you can go with your brother, just stay safe once you're over there, and make sure he does come back home."
    Angelica smiled. However, when she hugged her Father, her Mother began to break down, scared for her safety. Angelica tried calming her down: "Mama, .. Mama, don't worry, I'm going to make you proud, I promise."

    Mama: "Just don't get yourself killed. I know how you are my brave niña"

    While Angelica began to ready herself in the next couple days, she was now off traveling to Makana, along with her brother.

    Though Angelica got the permission to enter in the AGRL, she didn't have time to think what team she was going for. While speaking about Piranha with Rico, he explained the control type of the craft he had been racing with, thinking it won't be suited for her due to its handling. He insisted her sister to take FEISAR as their craft was easy to control, and that they hold an AG-Academy on the island of Makana followed by AG-Systems and Goteki 45, where Angelica could begin her training. She would rather make her own choice while she passes out of there. After landing on the Island, Angelica was on her own.

    Filling out a resume and choosing a training team, she began her pilot training with a FEISAR craft, having to stay in the academy for over half a year. She struggled at first during the first months of training including abit of nausea while controlling a craft. Sure enough she toughened herself out and eventually got the hang of the motions. As the months pass and getting use to craft, she was stunningly handling the controls very impressively on the testing grounds, even stunning the trainee pilots with her piloting techniques. The academy would notice her skills, feeling she was ready to take on the AGRL. While graduating from the academy, she was given recommended teams to join, willing to accept new trained pilots other than private teams like EG.X and unfortunately Piranha. With only a selective number of teams including the 3 from the academy, only one seemed to interest her. She would make her odd choice signing for Assegai Developments.

    Since the beginning of the F7200 league in 2116, Assegai, being one of the newest teams at the time was a national team to race, requiring pilots only from the African Nations. However, after being bought by Piranha sometime before the F9000, and reestablishing themselves for the FX300 League, new team principal, Rashika Oguchi would change the company policy. Their rules of requiring pilots had been proposed before the inaugural FX300 season in 2197. With new direction taking control of the team, Assegai had made an agreement to now recruit handpicked pilots from other parts of the world to take control of their new Cheetah and Panther model AG-Craft. Still, the majority of pilots from Assegai still came from the African Nations, showing pride for the only African development team in the professional AG-League. Angelica was lucky enough to be signed with Assegai for her skills, despite coming from a different continent.

    Assegai had a very good controllable craft with a decent top speed and acceleration. Angelica was interested, and she even liked the team's colors. Though Angelica would have made a trip to South Africa to train on the craft, Assegai was temporarily in Makana at the time as she was able to pilot their craft without leaving the country.

    However there was a twist to piloting their craft or team. Despite wearing the team colors, Assegai pilots who were not from the African nations were restricted to compete in most team tournaments with the exception of the Season Final Championships, accepting Japanese pilot, Ryoichi Honda by 2214. They were the only team to have this rule, keeping their F7200 pledge for their home continent of pilots. Angelica only was able to race by herself and was still able to earn sponsors in her career. Wearing the team colors however, she was not an official team pilot.

    By 2212, Angelica would eventually prove herself as one of the best pilots from Assegai Developments. Though not racing for the African nations, her experience alone gave a wide impression to her country, racing independently from the team regarding to be the best and only female Mexican pilot in the entire league. She was supposedly a backup pilot for a Squad, lead by Pilot, Gabriel Khumala and co-pilot, Leon Kadeem, both coming from parts of Africa. Unfortunately, she was never able to race with them on team tournaments due to team restrictions, only to continue on her own. Still, on her own she received her first gold/silver medals on solo tournaments as well as trials on the first few seasons. She would become one of the most responsive female pilots in the league, doing the most barrel roles on technical circuits from Makana and around the world. Based on her progress and reckless race techniques against her opponents, she was considered a risk taker by most race fans, surviving the most aggressive pilots in the league on weapon enabled events. Angelica then starts to gain attention by her family back home, even mostly impressing her oldest sibling, Rico, seeing that she made it in the professional league and accomplishing what he could not.

    By 2215 however, Angelica would leave Assegai Developments due to their team restrictions. Already a professional class pilot racing on Rapier to phantom class, Angelica chose to officially compete for a team that took pride of their nations' pilots, now transferring for the South American development team, Piranha Advancements. As for Gabriel and Leon, they got a replacement pilot, a female pilot coming from the African Nations who was now a third pilot to be allowed to race with the other two in 3-way team tournaments. Still, for Angelica, she was going to miss piloting the Assegai craft, moving on to something that was a little harder to control.

    Angelica now wanted to race as a team, racing only for herself all this time on an Assegai craft. Even though her previous team would not officially accept her as a team pilot, at Piranha, despite if pilots from outside nations race their craft, they were accepted as team pilots if proven to be exceptional. Going back to South America to now train on Piranha's Razorfin model AG-craft, she also heads back home to Mexico, being away from her family for too long. Her parents were glad that she was not harmed from racing, and had made big impressions to her older brother, Rico. However there was one reason why she came back home. Taking out her new Piranha uniform to show her brother, she wanted him to come back into racing, despite not being accepted by Piranha years ago and not allowed by their parents for him to go back. However, Angelica proved she was able to keep herself safe despite her reckless nature, and insisted to have her brother come back with her to Piranha HQ in Sao Paulo. Rico did wanted to race again despite his old age of 45, yet has lived a healthy lifestyle during the time Angelica was gone, still fit to pilot a craft one last time. He was excited to now race along with his little sister, even though she probably had more experience than him. The parents decided to let him go with her, taking off once again, this time with their permission.

    Angelica Martinez would make a name for herself once again throughout the first couple of seasons of the FX500 league. Though she was only known in Latin American countries, her reputation would soon seep through the Makanian mainland. Surprisingly though, she was also noticed by her thin/curve body shape, even while wearing her pilot uniform. She kept herself fit during the years, but never considered herself as a model, or in this case based on the comments on an island, an AG-Queen. AG-Queens were dancers of the AGRL, but even she didn't see herself as a dancer nor think she could pull off gymnastic style moves. "The only flips I could do are on an AG-craft." She replied. However, while her personality was far from feminine all these years, now people were saying she couldn't be an AG-Queen, wanting to prove them wrong. Angelica still couldn't help herself; while she has proven to be courageous by racing in a dangerous sport, now she wanted to prove that she could be elegant.

    2217 would become an interesting year for Angelica, but it wasn't just from AG-Racing. She would succeed in becoming an AG-Queen for Piranha part time, growing out more of her hair wearing a body revealing AG-Queen suit, including wearing makeup. Fans of her were stunned by her transformation, including her own brother currently racing. She looked beautiful in appearance, even saying to herself that she looked like her mother at the same 26yr old age. However, she felt awkward, questioning herself what she was doing, not use to her feminine qualities. While practicing to dance, it also felt weird to her, not having the flexibility to perform such moves. Still, she didn't enjoy the things she did as a kid either, only to prove a point just to fit in and became who she was. As she continued, she was average at best, up until her first performance in Makana with a group of other peer AG-Queens, coming out decent on stage. She was no Mariana Sinclair or Sofia Rossetti, but it was an experience worth trying overall. She could at least model in the AG-Queen outfits for Piranha showing her narrow pear figure and beauty on magazines, but never wanted to dance anymore, sticking to racing. Float Magazine would also put her on the front cover of an issue to promote her and her team doing a photo shoot with her Razorfin model craft. She would get more attention from it, but it was probably for other reasons. Throughout her racing career however, she has earned around 17 medals including from Assegai. (7G/4S/6B). When she was interviewed by the magazine press during her photoshoot about the racing league, she responded: "My goal is to become an elite pilot by the end of the 2217 season." And so far, she's wasn't too far off from it.

    Son of F9000 pilot, Omarr Khumala, Gabriel was born on July 29th, 2178 with his father and divorced mother in Cape Town South Africa. His father Omarr was once an AG-Pilot for Tigron Enterprises during the years of the 2150's to 60s. However, since the fall of the F9000 league in 2170, Tigron had been removed from its HQ in Russia as the team had been involved with corporate crime syndicates, corruption, even involvement with Overtel Corporation, and was immediately flushed out of the Race-commission. As for Omarr, he was dismiss from the team, and was left with his last paycheck going back to his home country.

    Retired from racing, Omarr will have his son race in the upcoming AG-League, noticing the comeback of AG-Racing in the 2180s. Gabriel's father lended an AG-craft to him, given to Omarr during the F9000 league, as he trained his son to pilot a craft when he was just 16yrs old. Due to Omarr's aggressive nature from the last league, Gabriel was also told to be aggressive as possible. However, Gabriel seemed more precise when piloting. By age 19, Gabriel would soon realize he'll have two choices of which team to race with for the remaining years of the FX300 league.

    Omarr had first introduced Gabriel to the team of Qirex-RD, resurrected from a burnt down factory, originally being the headquarters of the old Tigron Enterprises. Omarr still had a grudge with Auricom, knowing that Qirex will continue to eliminate the team which Tigron could not. But despite Omarr's personal wishes to transfer down to his son, Gabriel chose to race for Assegai Developments, racing for pride of the African Nations, and to continue his training from there. Omarr was kind of disappointed of him, but Gabriel just wanted to race and to choose his own team, instead of taking on Auricom for his dad.

    In 2199, Gabriel would compete as a Rookie pilot for the FX300 league, now racing in Assegai's Cheetah model craft. His performance was good to Assegai but was not the best; though given time to practice back at Assegai's main Academy in Durban, South Africa, It would take a lot more to impress team director, Rashika Oguchi to reach an exceptional level. Throughout the FX300 racing league, Gabriel would improve each season taking top 3 spots in events around the Makanian Mainland. He would earn his first silver in a Beta league tournament in 2202 followed by a first gold on a Gamma tournament in 2203. Opponents were aggressive in most of his races, but that would only test his skills further, counteracting their moves including fighting back in weapon enabled events, testing his aggression. By the time of the FX350 league in 2205, he would reach professional, and immediately was racing Assegai's newest craft for the team, the Panther prototype. Gabriel still believed in precise racing at the time, but as it showed in his past seasons, he was almost aggressive. His racing style would change from time to time depending on his frustration. He was smooth, but in some close situations, he would throw that knowledge out of his cockpit, sometimes making him come in first while racing.

    The FX400 was somewhat his challenging league, only to face mostly against an experienced but quick learning pilot from Mirage. Mirage was a new competing team since the FX350 league, and even though their performance was poor at first, their best pilot Sebak Abou-Gazia, brought them up as a challenging contender. Gabriel has faced Sebak more times in the league, and would come close to winning that their rivalry began to heat up when faced again and again, mostly caused by Gabriel himself. He would show his father's side as he became more aggressive towards the Emirati pilot, doing whatever it took to get in front of him, coming out victorious.

    In 2210, Gabriel would receive a wingman coming from Senegal. Amateur Assegai pilot, Leon Kadeem becomes his trusty partner throughout the league, while also meeting a Mexican pilot, Angelica Martinez. Angelica was an independent pilot however, yet Gabriel was kind of impressed by her agile performance in racing, yet sometimes complements on her reckless racing style. Still, she was not allowed to race with them in team events, leaving only him and Leon to take on team events on their own.

    In the following years, Gabriel began to lose his precision by the end of the FX400 league. Meeting more challenging contenders, Gabriel would begin an aggressive run throughout the final seasons. His aggression gets the best of him as his racing style becomes a small threat on the track. Gabriel would gain more attention by his new method of racing, and begins to win more races on his division. When he came back home to South Africa, meeting his sick father, his father Omarr would become proud of him. Omarr wanted Gabriel to keep racing in the matter that he wanted. Though not racing for Qirex, he knew that his son was now making his presence more felt than before. Just days after, Omarr dies of cancer sickness in 2215, age 84.

    Gabriel Khumala would now become more like his father; his entry in events become more menacing to some pilots in the league that he would unsurprisingly become a concern to Auricom Research Industries. Even though Assegai was not an aggressive team by their set of pilots, including their craft, Gabriel was considered the tip of the African long spear for the team. Though having a passive start during the FX300, it is now that he will show his true nature on the track. Gabriel was truly the son of a past aggressive pilot from the F9000 era, making his way into the FX500 league a year later in 2216.

    2216 overall would have Gabriel Khumala committed to his aggressive racing style during events of the FX500 league. Quoting his father during an interview at the opening season at the Amphiseum, "I will make my presence felt on my opponents this year. Fulfilling my father's last dying wish, I will finish, what he had started." It was unclear what he had meant on his last statement. Given to what his father had said to him when he came to the sport, it would seem that he may move forward on it. Like so, Gabriel would lose loyalty to Assegai Developments. Around this same time, a war between the Belmondo foundation and Qirex's conglomerate had escalated throughout events of the league, mostly in the return of eliminator events back in 2215.

    What looked to be total 180 of what he believed in back in the FX300 league, Gabriel would approve of the actions that Qirex was conducting on the race commission, opposing the teams that sworn to defend the it. His current teammate, Leon Kadeem would want no involvement of the situation, including the team in general. Assegai wanted no part of what was going on in the league, even though they wanted to settle scores with Piranha who has some involvement in the conflict in support for Auricom Research. Still, Gabriel would show his support for Qirex by attacking pilots from Auricom, piloting Assegai's new Leopard model craft. Kadeem, including a new female teammate on their squad would oppose the actions their lead pilot would conduct in events. Eventually, Gabriel would abandon his squad all together by the start of 2217, leaving only Leon to lead the squad of two, while their old lead had pretty much gone independent, or in the case of Assegai, has become a rogue AG-pilot. By the end of the 2216 season, Gabriel would decide to leave Assegai entirely.[/I]

    Author Note: The name of the new female pilot, Tonya Kanyanta is actually a name of one of my concept pilots for Formula Fusion, team Izulu Dynamics. Since I see both WipEout and Formula Fusion as alternate realities, the names of my pilots there might end up in the WipEout Universe also or I’ll just scrap the Idea of fanmade pilots for FF. At this point, I might not make a pilot archive for Formula Fusion after all. Because WipEout HAD to make a likely comeback with the Omega Collection, I’m gonna continue on with this universe and not focus on FF like I thought I was. So, you may end up seeing some of those pilot names with teams Van-Uber and Tigron instead, perhaps new extra pilots for each team, but that’s gonna be too much unless I put some of them in the WipEout 2048 era. As much as I wanted to create a fanmade anthology for Formula Fusion, I just can't let go of WipEout, so I'm staying here. I’ll still end up buying Formula Fusion, just not diving deep into its universe.

    Leon was born on February 7th, 2189 on the tip of Dakar Senegal. During the events of the 2170 depression and throughout time, the country was slowly dying out with its low economy and food resources. Not just Senegal alone, but most of the African Nations. However, what kept Senegal alive was its high rate of fishery, but even that was a struggle as other countries around and outside took most of the fishing grounds, even more so with advanced technology. Leon was once a fisherman when he was a teenager, along with his father and siblings, independently fishing in the areas on a small boat. Unfortunately, despite knowing good areas to catch fish, they mostly came very scarce. Days of trying to catch a good amount to sell or even take home, their number of catches were just a couple fish. It didn't help that larger and more advanced boats were around their areas, taken most by a hover boat labeled by Mr. Somo, a food corporation. As Leon and his family saw the boats catching larger nets of fish out of the ocean, they simply call it a day, with just very little on their small boat.

    The family lived outside of the big city of Dakar, not living among the densely populated areas or most of AG-Transportation in the air surrounding them. Leon again lived with just his mother, father and 2 siblings, only to go with his father and two brothers out in the ocean, only to come back with just little earnings from selling their fish and bringing a couple home. The family struggled mostly with food than money, even so not able to afford much. In 2208, Leon would get engaged at age 19. But having his wife also living with them didn't help much with a family of 5 in terms of food. However, despite some struggles and labor out in the ocean, Leon did have one special hobby out in the grasslands in the middle of the country.

    Out in the dry savannas of central Senegal laid a flat surface of ground almost perfect for a small AG-Race craft to fly on. Leon, along with his brothers, traveled to the area where they kept a shack storing a very crude, but small working AG-Craft. It was once just an AG-car striped with just one seat and made to look like the professional AG-Craft from the AGRL using welded metal from the car itself. The brothers had created their very own craft to fly around in the savanna, only to now attach a small jet fueled engine that was many years old founded in a junkyard in their hometown. Though the three took turns flying their craft, as the engine was bolted on, none of them thought they should fly it, knowing it will go too fast or for the engine to malfunction, possibly exploding during flight. Despite the risk, this didn't faze Leon in any way. He decides to go for it, being the oldest of his brothers. He would strap himself to the craft's seat with just a seat-belt rather than an over the shoulder restraint like the professional AG-Craft. Wearing only a bike helmet as he lifted off the ground, one of his brothers still had second thoughts, telling Leon of not being sure to take off. But Leon thought nothing bad will happen, as the other brother turns on and lights up the engine with a blowtorch. The two stood away from the heat of the engine, taking shade from the hot sun. Leon throttles the engine as he immediately zooms off, leaving his brothers behind.

    Leon was going faster than before with the small jet powered engine, going at least under 300mph (Vector Class Speeds). The craft zoomed around the savanna, as animals take notice of the dust cloud forming across the land. He was able to still turn with the craft, performing very well for a crude makeshift machine. His two brothers lose track of him only to see the dust plume come towards them and stopping nearby, seeing that Leon had made it in one piece. He gets off with a big smile on his face of how amazing the craft performed. Just immediately, Leon thought about the AG-League, if it was that easy to pilot a makeshift craft, then it's possible to pilot a much larger, professional one. He was optimistic about it, yet his brothers thought it was too expensive to travel down to South Africa to train at the main headquarters of Assegai Developments. All Leon could do was teach himself on his craft, despite having very little jet fuel to use rather than long lasting Plasma energy like an actual one.

    Eventually, the rest of his family knew what he and his brothers were doing in the Savanna. Not knowing that they had and were piloting their AG-craft, the father got kind of upset with Leon for not telling him, but oddly became impressed by his experience and amateur skill controlling it, despite how dangerous his craft was. Leon became confident that he could race with Assegai in the professional AGRL. But as he suspected, his family couldn't afford him to enter the Headquarters to go train with the team, or his journey down to South Africa. Leon could only dream on as his hopes of competing may not ever happen, only to be approached by his father again a year later.

    In 2209, throughout the year also improving his makeshift craft with his brothers now stored in their home garage, Leon's father would come in to show something to him, following his father in his bedroom to a small safe holding a bag, giving it to his son. Inside the bag shocked Leon. A big wad of cash was given to him in order to get in the headquarters of Assegai to now train himself to become a professional AG-Pilot. Leon's first thought was about his family, throughout the year struggling with food, his father kept the money all this time only to help him go to South Africa. With Leon's hard work out in the ocean, and work to his craft, his father thought he deserved to go. While doing so, if successful, he could really help out the family. It was then his brothers, mother, and wife found out about the news. Leon was heading south, heading to a nearby airport to take a commercial aircraft over.

    Saying goodbye to his family and wife, wishing good luck to him, Leon was on course to the Assegai headquarters south of Africa. Arriving at the HQ, some anxiety kicked in when Leon entered the facility. Heading at the front desk, showing his resume/information, the person at the desk then says there were no slots available for recruiting. Assegai had given much of their craft to African and European pilots since the FX350 that their lineup was pretty much full, that and stopping production of the current gen FX400 model, continuing their research on their FX500 prototype. The front desk suggested the waiting list, only for Leon to beg for a spot on the team, waiting a couple days for an answer. At last, with luck, one craft was available to lend over, but being as one of their only remaining AG-craft they have for the racing league, they urge him not to have it destroyed or critically damaged during races. Leon would begin his training north of South Africa in a test track out in the Savanna once again.

    Taking half a year on improving his skills with the main Assegai craft, Leon was eligible for Venom class events in the FX400 league, setting course first at Gemini Dam in Morocco. His first race was against other Assegai pilots, a quarter which coming from Europe. Leon would excel coming in a podium position against the other team pilots, having a good start to soon compete along with other teams in the AG-racing capital of Makana in the Pacific Ocean. However, things would only get tougher with the opposing teams around the world for Leon, facing such teams like Piranha Adv. His racing skills were good, but not up to par, coming mostly in the mid pack in single races. It was not much of a good start in the world stage, but by the ending year of 2210, looking for squad-mates for team events, he would get assigned to experienced Assegai pilot, Gabriel Khumala.

    Leon would eventually become Gabriel's trusty wingman in the AGRL, being unaccepting at first when he was introduced to him. Throughout two years of racing, despite a couple medals earned while racing alone, Leon would still earn a good number of sponsors while racing in team events, earning recognition by Assegai's main sponsor, Arial, including secondary sponsors by 2ND SKIN, and Mr. Somo. Leon would recognize the Mr. Somo logo since he was a teenager, remembering that big boat that took most of his catch years ago. His given objective from the company was to win a podium spot in any standard tournament in his career. But instead of money from the company, Leon wanted food instead, promising the deal as long as he could earn one tournament medal without Gabriel's support.

    In 2213, coming to a closing season of the FX400 league, Leon would fail to at least come in third in any of the tournaments in Makana. That was until one generous female pilot from the FEISAR team had approached him after one final event. French female pilot, Clara Bellerose, would take bronze on one of the last remaining tournaments, followed by Leon taking fourth place. Clara was just an amateur in her AG-Career as a FEISAR pilot; though this was her first tournament she had competed by herself, Clara would make a comeback in this event, catching up with Leon for third position. This would become an upset for him as he failed to complete Mr Somo's objective, thinking he had let down his family back home. Surprisingly though, the French pilot would come up to him, speaking to him with the same French language. She was small compared to Leon being 6'2" ft, as she looked concerned seeing him upset about the podium lost.

    Being a good willed person, Clara talks to him in the French language. "Don't be so down on yourself, maybe next season you'll win a medal."
    Leon Responds: "It's not winning that I care about. …My family would have expected me to bring something home to them, if I only did make it to third place, I could have helped them a lot for this."
    Clara answers to him feeling bad: "Oh…Well I'm... Sorry that I took this from you then."
    Leon: "No, no, it's not your fault, I'm just not sure how I can feed my family and my wife from here on. I've just hoped I could have earned food from my sponsor by completing this tournament. I'm just wasn't fast enough."

    Clara knew what he was talking about, considering she was also sponsored by Mr. Somo. Taking out her paycheck from her bronze win, she thought she could split it for Leon to afford food back home.

    Clara offers: "I can split this check for you, just this once so you could afford food."
    Leon replied: "But.. This is your money, you've earned it. You don't have to…"
    Clara interrupts: [I]"Please? I know your nation's people are struggling with this. I at least want to help you with yours. I insist. Let me split this check with you just this once to help your family back home.”
    Leon: “I.. I can’t.”
    Clara: “You need it more than I do. …Please, just take the whole check. I don’t want it anymore knowing I’ll be starving a family with it” [I] (Looks at him in plead)
    Leon was grateful: "Y.. You are too charitable. If only there were more people like you in this world of greed, back in the day. (referring to F9000 era and depression) I..I… I don't know how I'll ever repay you. Thank you, thank you for this. This will help my family a lot. I promise I'll pay this back to you next season."
    Clara: "No need, I'm just glad to help. I know you'll do better next time."
    Leon: "I will never forget this. Again, thank you for your kindness."
    Clara: "BonneChance." (Good Luck)

    Leon would still keep his promise to Clara by paying her back. With the money by Clara helping Leon's family back home, he was motivated to become a better AG-Pilot on his last seasons of the FX400 league, continuing in the newly installed FX500 racing league in 2215. Leon steps up his game by finishing third or better in most of the events he competed in the new league, able to complete Mr. Somo's objectives in the open tournaments of his racing career. Eligible for Flash and Rapier class events in the league pairing with more skilled pilots, the competition gets much faster and aggressive, challenging Leon throughout his seasons of racing. Still a secondary pilot to Gabriel Khumala, he was still able to handle himself while also finishing for Khumala in a couple team events. As for Clara, while not meeting much in races due to different skill divisions, they sometimes bumped into each other outside the race events. Leon also pays back Clara now with success in his career, including helping his family back home in Senegal. Soon after, Leon and his wife were now living on their own moving out of his family's house. Eventually, he returns for the new season.

    Unfortunately a year later, Clara would retire from racing in 2216 as Leon never saw her again in later seasons. Around this time however, his squad would receive a new pilot, supposedly replacing their backup pilot, Angelica Martinez, who had transferred to their rival team, Piranha Adv. Angelica was a Mexican AG-pilot; while she could pilot an Assegai craft, she was restricted to race in team tournaments due to her nationality. Still, she was mostly an independent pilot, only to have interest in racing with a squad but was not officially a wingman for Leon's group. Angelica would leave the team entirely back in 2215, only to be replaced the year before by Kenyan pilot, Tonya Kanyanta.

    Tonya had been an Assegai test pilot for only two years entering her first season in 2214 going into her third. Already mastering the new Leopard craft for the FX500 league, she became exceptional on her first year of racing. As for their lead pilot, Gabriel Khumala, he was suddenly influenced to race more violently in these new events. Since his debut in the FX300 league, he had always been a more precision pilot racing purely with Assegai against his opponents. However, as years went on he would slowly become aggressive by the middle of the FX400 league, almost now resembling his deceased father, Omarr Khumala from the F9000 era. Gabriel would almost go rogue during the 2216 FX500 season, only to now abandon his squad in favor of going alone in events and becoming violent with teams like Auricom and Piranha. By 2217 he would also leave Assegai entirely in favor of supposedly Qirex-RD, and was around the time a war had been going on in the league between allies of Qirex and the Belmondo Foundation teams. Though Assegai stayed neutral from the fighting/eliminations including Leon and Tonya, the team would still tease a war with Piranha in most combat events, not including eliminator. Overall the squadron opposed aggressive racing including eliminating their opponents.

    In the current year of 2218, Leon is now lead pilot of his squad of two. Already a professional pilot, he will continue to hold his own in events along with support of Tonya in team events. Though a good pilot, he has only earned 9 medals in 7 years of racing with just one gold medal received during a Vertigo team tournament in 2215 along with Gabriel Khumala. (1G/2S/5B) Leon hopes to succeed in more team events with Tonya using her combined skill level to reach the top 3 placed finishes. Above all he still races for his family back home, including his new family with his wife and new child. It's expected that his new son would race in the AG-league someday, following the footsteps of his father and continuing the Kadeem name in the near future, possibly away from Earth.

    Hmmm, that sounds a lot like Brian Kadeem from Hot Wheels: World Race.

    I mean, it's okay, I've taken and edited bits of other franchises for my fanfic, even that series!

    That's exactly where I got it from, including the inspiration like his motivation for racing and how Vert gave Brian his check for his people at the end of the movie. Here Clara does the same thing for Leon's family.

    Also Thiago Castillo's surname was taken from Banjee Castillo. (Yes I know Banjee's Puerto Rican and not Brazillian)

    Noelani was born on December 14th, 2186 inland of Vineta A's Industrial Belt region of Modesto Heights. Before Noelani's birth, her family were a bunch of AG-Enthusiast since the invention of Anti-Gravity in 2035, after the success of Pierre Belmondo's first AG-flight in the Nevada Tule desert. In her family, both her parents and older brother were AG junkies, and in 2185, they had set course to America for the Rebirth Festival taking place at the Belmondo test site which flew the first AG-craft. Noelani was never born when the festival took place however. Her father and Brother owned 2 AG-craft for each of them, but they weren't racecraft whatsoever compared to the AGRL craft being shown at the festival. The family was widely entertained by the faster and larger craft though, signaling the resurrection of the sport of AG-Racing and the opening of the Amateur FX150 league.

    While growing up as a child, Noelani was raised around AG-technology. The island's government at the time was continuously building tracks around every corner in preparation of the official FX300 league announced in 2195, bidding for the hosting rights since the announcement of the FX150. Makana was going to be a host country of the new league, exciting not just Noelani herself, but that of the whole family. Throughout the FX300 league in almost every season, the family would go to every track on the island to see just one race from each region, sometimes following a tournament tour of the SFC watching every live event until the championships went international during the early 2200s. When racing came to a close after the seasons, Noelani was back home looking up the history of the sport in her father's sanctuary. Her enthusiasm would grow all the way through her school years up until she entered highschool. No matter what subjects she took, she was obsessed with Anti-Gravity.

    By the age of 16, Noelani was given an AG-craft for her birthday in 2202. Though the craft was only a small and street legal variant of an AG-race-craft, Noelani had eventually taught herself by piloting it out in an open lot somewhere in the city on her own. While passing a perfect score on her pilot license, she was ready to set out to the public, not realizing her perfect score had caught the eye of a team principal in the race commission. During her high school hours, she was then interrupted from her class to meet with a person at the school's main office. Noelani was confused why she was called out thinking she was in trouble or something was wrong with her parents. She was soon met by the person that wanted to see her heading in the school lobby. That person was none other than Keao Manumaleuna, the director of operations for the island's only team, Goteki 45.

    Noelani had been reading about the different teams during the F-thousand era leagues when she was a child, only to realize how much a bad reputation Goteki 45 had during the F7200. Goteki was known to be a track bully during their first entry of the AG-League, seeing that their lineup of pilots was very aggressive and violent at the time. She learned other facts like how the team has hold a complete grudge against the fast but weak team of Icaras, only to be terminated by an unknown bombing of Goteki's Headquarters in 2137. While Noelani was thinking that over, Keao soon says to her if she was interested in flying AG-Craft for a career. Keao had read over some of her family history, even mentioning about her perfect score from her pilot license testing.

    Before Keao could say anything else, Noelani interrupted"Why do you want me for your racing team?"
    Keao plays around with her: "I didn't mention anything about a racing team."
    Noelani responded: "Why else would you be here? You're from Goteki 45, I know who you are."

    Keao soon got to the point of his discussion; He then tells her that he was looking for more precision pilots, after a failed attempt of finding pilots to turn around the reputation of the team, he hoped to put Noelani with Goteki's lineup of pilots, given her piloting skills. Despite her Enthusiasm with Anti-Gravity, Noelani was not too sure with Keao's offer, both her permission from her parents, and her reputation if she were to join with the once violent team in the league. She refused the offer for now, but Keao kept it open for her in hopes that she'll change her mind.

    Noelani did felt interested in piloting AG-craft in racing, but due to Goteki's past, she thought no one will give her respect for teaming up with them. She explained to her parents of what happen today, only to give her the choice if she wanted to join/race or not. She quickly made second thoughts, and for the final verdict, she accepts Keao's offer, soon meeting with him to explain at the team's facility. Giving an exceptional interview, she was hired for the company's racing team. Surprisingly however, she didn't have to go very far to find the Makanian AG-Academy.

    Noelani had begun pilot training on Goteki's FX300 craft (Kilauea) at the facility, even when she was still going to high school. Having to read most of the instructions and passing health procedures for piloting an AG-race craft, she immediately began teaching herself again on a much faster machine. She sets out to master the techniques of AG-Racing as much as possible, even studying the techniques during her free time. The studying soon became an obsession, wanting to be perfect as possible during race trials on a track. By the age of 18 after she graduated, she was completely ready to take on the challenges that the League has to offer, while still going to college.

    Starting out on the junior division, Noelani was one of the most experienced pilots to race, and completely outruns everyone that was racing against her. She would surprise the young beginner pilots also for not being aggressive to them, on a count of what team she was racing with. Feeling that she was too overmatched by the beginner pilots, she establishes herself of wanting to now officially race in the AGRL with the professional pilots. However, as she was about to get out of her cockpit, the trainees would come up to her, wondering how she did all these techniques and keeping her speed. Noelani decides to stay in the cockpit, only to teach the basics to her own line of student pilots. This led her to become a pilot advisor and instructor for any student pilot that asked for her help and has made results over the past few weeks. Noelani did thought about becoming a teacher to pilot AG-craft while growing up, but for racing, it wasn't what she had in mind.

    Noelani would decide not to compete for the late FX300 league after all and continues to teach pilots at the Makanian AG-Academy while still going to public school. For over 6 years, she was doing this as a career even while having a bachelor's degree from her years in college, which would come in use later on. By now it was the start of the FX350 league as she decides to now compete officially, piloting Goteki's new AG-craft, the Pinatubo. Noelani would master the much higher speed classes during her years, already suited to race for Rapier and Phantom tournaments, now turning elite. She was a respected pilot from the academy, but unfortunately for her teammates at the time, they were the exact opposite.

    While racing with teammates, it was difficult to communicate with them. Just like the F7200s, her team pilots were very aggressive, not respecting the perfection to race and continued to clash with other teams like EG.X and Icaras. Noelani would not approve of this, and at times she had no choice but to battle with her own team, causing anger to the pilots to go up against her. Pilots like Native Makanian, Tauban Ferrai were a nightmare to work with; aside from his age, he was unable to follow Noelani's techniques and would rather go on his own in races. She didn't want to race side by side with him or anyone else on her team anymore, with the exception of Easter Islander pilot, Andrea Santiago, only to find 2 other Goteki pilots that seemed to still respect her ways of racing, or at least one.

    The 2 pilots, Aku Tanaki and Zamora Aguilera were who she felt comfortable with, aside that her secondary pilot still raced aggressively most of time. New Zealander native, Aku, would be just another Tauban to Noelani, only worse. Not long however, he would abandon his squad, only to become a rogue pilot to Goteki years later. As for Zamora, a pilot from a floating city out in the Caribbean Sea, was more easier to work with. Though Zamora had a slightly aggressive racestyle, she was mostly cooperative overall with Noelani, able to communicate and share tactics on team events. They were kind of friends outside of racing, but still mostly saw each other as workable partners in a couple of seasons. However, despite her efforts, even succeeding to have Zamora race more purely, the rest on her team were still hard to influence. Noelani would choose to race independently throughout her seasons while continuing to teach more pilots at the AG-academy including outside of teams. She would eventually meet a pilot that would grow a bond with her.

    By 2212, Noelani would discover an optimistic pilot during her observing at a qualifier in Ubermall, Vineta A. The pilot was a recent addition to Auricom and was an AG-Queen performer part time. Her bubbly personality was loved by everyone, but her piloting skills were still shaky against opponents on the track. American Auricom pilot, Rachel Vega would be an interest to Noelani, with her determination being her strongest trait for racing. Noelani would offer her private training at the Makanian AG-academy to sharpen her skills including teaching her race techniques from past pilots that would help counter her opponents in later events. The two would meet from time to time in the season, with Rachel being able to bring her craft during her breaks from events. However at the time, Auricom didn't trust much of Goteki 45, even if it was Noelani helping her. The two only had a student/teacher relationship overall, but as they continuously met and Rachel showing her high spirited and joyful personality, Noelani would fall in love with it and enjoy her presence overtime. After teaching her throughout the season, Rachel would improve overtime in later events, becoming an ally despite Auricom's feelings towards Goteki 45. Behind their lines, Noelani also seemed to make friendly intentions with their rivals including with pilots from Icaras who were an arch nemesis. While she wanted unity with the teams in the league, only one seemed distrusting looking at EG.X. It was unknown why she opposed EG.X, possibly something to do with their pilot program from their Chinese principals, but it was something she rather keep personal. One thing was certain was she openly disliked Tigron Enterprises, viewing them as "irredeemable" for their actions back in the F9000 era. Lucky for her they were nonexistent, including Overtel for almost destroying the AG culture. Unfortunately for her, that would turn out to be half false later on.

    Noelani hoped to turn around Goteki to be more of a respected team, all based on her skills on the track and outside to show that she's not a savage contender. She would claim to make peace between Goteki and Icaras by bringing her team pilots into pure racing, not attacking their opponents. Other teams would see her as the most respected pilot in the entire league, and that Float Magazine would call her the "Ambassador of Goteki 45". Before the start of the FX500 league in 2215 however, Noelani was temporarily a co-director for Goteki 45 alongside with Keao Manumaleuna. Long before the league was announced, Noelani was highly involved back at the Goteki headquarters as one of the designers for Goteki's prototype craft (Krakatau) for the new league. Her degree would serve a purpose by engineering a concept craft that would be much easier to control yet still durable, keeping high thrust speeds during preseason testing before the FX500 opening in North America. She also recruited only pilots that have racing skill rather than recklessness, and while this led Goteki to become weak to few other teams, few of the reckless pilots already with Goteki 45 would eventually leave, unaccepting the changes of routine from the team by transferring over to teams like Qirex, Triakis or a "forbidden team name" much later. This didn't concern Noelani, continuing to move Goteki 45 by racing the right way. Unfortunately, her old pilots may come back to haunt her in the new league.

    Through Noelani's efforts, Goteki 45 had been winning more races than before, especially when she was in control of the pilot seat. Despite winnings for her team however, she was still not accepted for the All-Star Championships in favor of Tauban Ferrai and British pilot, Colin Emery, all of which did very poorly. Noelani would succeed in making an alliance between Goteki and Auricom, having the two team principals shake hands at a closing 2214 season and for Keao to declare partnership with the Belmondo Foundation, supporting the teams of the commission overall. However, Goteki's old ally, Qirex-RD, would see this as a betrayal, even during the time when Qirex had brought teams together who opposed the Foundation. Rising tensions in the league began to form with Nadia Elenova supposedly at the helm of Qirex's race team, though team principal, Feliks Levovitch still had control of the company. Things would then escalate between the two sides; Auricom and Qirex along with their supporting teams would fight for control over the race commission, leading to an all-out war in events of the FX500 league. Goteki 45 would continue to side with the Belmondo Foundation, already with their pilots influenced by Noelani's ideals for the team. She wanted to bring peace/sportsmanship to the team's new stance in the league, keeping the purity of racing and condemning the violent actions between the two sides, wanting truce. Unfortunately, the conflict would continue up to current 2217. Both Auricom and Qirex would rather see either side disappear, for the fate of the race commission.

    Goteki 45 overall would lack in eliminator based events of the FX500 league, showing that the aggressive pilots they had before were long gone. While it got more violent in combat events, their craft remained strong despite acouple eliminations, yet the new regulated armor plating kept the craft mostly intact replacing few damaged components rather than scrapped. As years past on, Noelani would eventually have the offer of taking the main director seat for Goteki 45. Surprisingly, Noelani would refuse, saying that she rather race for her team rather than taking control of it. Keeping her word, she continued on for the FX500 in 2217. Her influence in the league had already impacted the team and inspired pilots from others, making her name well known not just on the island, but most of the world. This enthusiast/historian turned elite pilot has earned more than 20 medals in her racing career. (12G/8S/1B) Without Noelani, Goteki 45 wouldn't be the team it is today have it not turned around its aggressive reputation. To make it more impactful they would win their second ASC in 2216 by pilot Þora Haraldssen of Norway, originally from AG-Systems. (Their first being in 2128.) The team was respected in the race commission, and it was all Noelani wanted. Most of all, she was just passionate of the sport and its history, becoming a part of it. She'll become an instructor/co-head of the Makanian AG-Academy leaving the league in 2218. She'll continue to teach new pilots overall, giving racing 101 of every known track across the planet for pilots to tackle, having gone through them herself on the fastest speed class for her students at the facility.

    However, as she leaves the AGRL after the 2217 season, she'll hear an announcement that will concern her tremendously. As her worst fears become clear, Tigron Enterprises would make a return for the FX500 league in 2218.

    Born on April 19th, 2180 on a floating city out in the Caribbean Sea, Zamora Aguilera is of Colombian origin along with her family, raised on a middle-class section of the water afloat paradise. While not much is known of her early life, appearance-wise, she's kind of muscular in shape. She had expressed that she works out a lot, but if there's one thing she liked more than lifting, it was racing powerful AG-craft. Back in the days of the mid FX300 league, Zamora had made a career as an amateur race pilot at the age 22 in 2202. Her first start in the sport still took place on the floating city, racing on a beginner track across the man-made superstructures. Her first craft was a smaller variant of the professional AG-craft from the AGRL but was a dual haul design. More muscle than sleekness, it had great acceleration from the starting line, able to get in front of other racers and getting a big lead until taking the corners. Much like a muscle vehicle it could not take turns easily by its mass and lack of aerodynamics, though it had power overall. She would mostly drag race her craft than taking a circuit, proving her craft's raw power in a straight line. Before long however, she got back on corners now racing on official circuits like Vertica, becoming her favorite course throughout the years.

    Zamora would show her potential for professional racing, winning enough amateur events and attention to get an invite to the city's AG-club/show event where she had shown off her craft including meeting/competing other skilled pilots. The event was also where teams from the international stage showed off their production models, specifically Auricom, FEISAR and a portion of Piranha. She was introduced to a variant ship owned by piranha where her given test flight took to the city's test track. This was a VIP gift to any member allowed to handle a craft, and Zamora was given the honor to experience racing on a bigger machine. It was the best experience she ever had in her life, inspiring her to compete in the major leagues of racing. Getting the attention of teams from the AGRL however would not be easy, but earning a sponsor should show her worth for professional teams to hire her. She gets another boost of attention after winning a televised amateur event on the floating city while now traveling to Vertica upward in the Caribbean for another major race including seeing a professional race of the teams themselves. Finally, Zamora would receive her first sponsor on the same track, including offers by few of the teams to race with. Zamora would choose to race for Goteki 45.

    Choosing Goteki 45 for its acceleration, she would now travel to Makana in 2204 to train with the team's craft at the Makanian AG-Academy. Goteki's new Kilauea prototype craft was heavier and a dual hull chassis variant almost similar to not just their F7200 model but also her own, feeling right at home. Getting use to yet another ship for less than a year, Zamora would soon become ready to compete professionally for the upcoming FX350 League. As the time came for the 2205 season, she was sent off to North America for the opening ceremony.

    Throughout the FX350 league however, Zamora was kind of an Underdog against the professional group of pilots, always coming as a mid pack runner and hardly gained a reputation than she did as an amateur. Still trying to gain a podium spot, she was able to receive first bronze during a Southern American tournament in the remaining months of 2206. In 2207, she would receive silver in Makana during a Gamma tournament, including another sponsor. Zamora would also take part in the VX league to drag race her craft, proving herself strong in these events overall but was unable to challenge the top 4 elite. About a year later, she then meets her new lead squad teammate, Noelani Kekumu, only 6 years younger than her, but was an ace pilot to Goteki 45. Both instructor and in a way a team ambassador, she was the most respected pilot in the current AGRL. Zamora and Noelani didn't just form a partnership, but also a small friendly relationship, more reasonable and good spirited than Noelani's last wingman, Aku Tanaki, taking only matters into his own hands in most combat events until going rogue much later on in the AGRL.

    Continuing into the FX400 in 2212 to 2214, Zamora would only come out decent for the team. While not the best that Goteki had to offer, she does her best to gain a spot with the most talented pilots out there. Mostly racing as an independent pilot, her loyalty for Goteki 45 was quite low, but she continued to race along with her lead pilot, Noelani, for support in team races. By the FX500 league in 2215, Zamora would soon go by her own choices.

    In 2217, Zamora Aguilera would continue to race for Goteki 45, coming out once again as an above average pilot earning only 12 medals including from the VX league. (4G/4S/4B) Her lead teammate, Noelani would also drop out of racing a year later, only to become an instructor and co-head of the Makanian AG-Academy, not retiring from piloting AG-craft anytime soon. As for Zamora, her progress in the league fared well overall since her debut back in 2205. She plans to transfer teams in current 2218 but is unknown who she'll race for. Whatever team she may join, she hopes for better success overall in the long run of the FX500 racing league.

    Aku Tanaki is a Polynesian Maori native from the northern part of New Zealand. Born on an unknown date in an unknown village, Aku was almost animal-like than the rest of his people while growing up. He would see himself as a Warrior, but his family didn't think so. His mother and father would find and take away his handcrafted weapons as a kid, but that only made it worse for them as he got more violent. As a teen he would start fights around the village, realizing they don't see any good in him as he threatened the other families close by. How he became so violent was unsure, as if he was back in the days of their native people centuries ago. There was even a time where they thought he was eating human flesh, shocking his family thinking he has gone too far than to be civilized. Aku was too much trouble that nobody wanted him in the village. With no other choice he was banished at age 19, living out in the wild.

    Aku had walked for days and survived by using his hunting skills, until coming towards a facility outside of urban territory. He was founded by workers by a fence close to a test track. What the facility was is a sub headquarters built in New Zealand by Goteki 45, originally coming from Makana miles away out in the pacific. The staff thought he was some lost survivor out in the Zealand jungles. Dirty, malnourished and hardly wearing any clothing, Aku was taken in the facility only to be fed, thinking he was famished. They have no idea how long he was out there or where he came from. He can talk to the people in the facility, but they didn't seem to understand him, despite speaking in English. The crew left him to figure out where to take him, until he began wondering around the facility.

    Aku would head into a hanger bay as he spotted something he had never seen before. The people that left him soon find him, upset that he walked off, until he asked the question, "What is this Machine". Aku has now seen an AG-Craft for the first time; though he had seen vehicles around his village, they were never anything like it. Out in the wild he also saw flying objects in the sky but was not sure what they were. The craft in the hanger was going under gravitational testing, and as he saw the craft float, he thought it was magic holding it up. The craft itself was a first design by Goteki 45 to enter for the mid FX300 league. As for the things he saw flying in the air, they were just commercial AG/vtol-craft flown by citizens from a nearby city. The crew was about to escort him out, until Aku answered: "Let me ride this thing." A hanger crewmate would answer: "Look buddy, this place is private, we can't let you just pilot th…." Suddenly Aku attacks the worker by pushing him to the ground, as the other person reacts and approaches him, "Hey what the F**k, man?" Aku then switches and knocks the other over as he then reaches for a tool to use as a weapon. As he was about to strike, he was suddenly interrupted by a figure in front of the exit.

    "Stop!" said the man, as Aku lowered his weapon. "Let him pilot this craft." The two on the ground look up wondering why, as they saw the co-director of the facility and team. Co-director at the time, Loto Kahanamoku was Kaeo Manumaleuna's co-partner from Hawaii, taking control of the New Zealand facility for Goteki 45. He was responsible for hiring a few specific pilots for the reformed team, but unfortunately with Kaeo in search of more precision pilots, Loto had been searching for more aggressive type. Loto use to have relatives that use to race for Goteki since the F7200 league. Knowing about their troubled pass, he still continued to bring back the aggressive style of Goteki, seeing that it was more of an advantage than pure racing and the rightful way to win. But Kaeo had other thoughts. It was hard to even find pure pilots to have them race for their team. Goteki 45 had an infamous reputation of being such an animalistic team in the past that no one in the AGRL respected them, and with the resurrection of the team in 2195, Kaeo wanted to change the team's direction, yet Loto still wanted it to be the same. After discovering Aku's rage with the 2 workers, he looked to be a perfect choice.

    Loto reasoned with Aku, promising him that racing with Goteki 45 will make him stronger and fulfilled, playing with his warrior nature. Aku looked interested as Loto tried to shake his hand, making him trust him but also stabbing Kaeo in the back for it. From then on, Aku had privately been trained by Loto in the facility, piloting Goteki's FX300 Kilauea model craft. Aku was getting use to the controls of the craft but was also encouraged to be reckless with it by taking advantage of the other test pilots on the test track. For only a few weeks in training, He and Loto believed that he was ready to compete, despite Kaeo wanting at least a year's worth of training for new pilots. In 2206 at the age of 20, Loto sends Aku to Makana for the final season of the FX350 league, racing on a new craft by Goteki 45, the Pinatubo.

    Aku was officially racing with Goteki, but despite a couple weeks training, it didn't seem to matter as he was a beast in every race he entered. As Loto expected, Aku was racing violently against the other competitors, making it easy for him to eliminate most AG-craft on the circuit, sometimes making it in first place. Before a race however, Aku would traditionally wear war paint on his face every time he races and is known to pilot the plain yellow livery craft, sometimes putting war paint on his craft as well.

    As Aku continued racing now in the FX400 league, he was soon witness by the main Director of Goteki 45, Kaeo Manumaleuna, and what he saw, disappointed him. Aku was way too violent, as Kaeo approached his partner Loto about this "bad influence". Loto admitted that he had trained Aku and for letting him race this way. However, by admitting this led to Loto being fired from co-directing chair, seeing that Goteki 45 was still influencing aggressive pilots. Kaeo could have dismissed Aku from the team, but Aku would now own his craft and was mostly racing independently, not wanting to deal with him. Kaeo would soon change this around when he discovered a student in Makana that was willing to race with Goteki 45 purely and dedicating back in 2205. This pilot was Noelani Kekumu.

    Noelani had run ins with Aku before, even as a wingman, but Aku was always disobedient with her and would sometimes fight back, leaving Noelani to remove him from her squad, soon finding Zamora Aguilera. He also makes a complete grudge with one of Icaras' lead pilots, Edgar Lawrence, for being the weakest craft on the track. Overall, Aku didn't need a wingman, and he didn't care about being successful, just to be what he thinks he truly is. By the FX500 league, he still races his FX350 craft, seeing how Goteki 45 themselves refuse to give him the new Krakatau model craft. However, despite not receiving any sponsors or much reputation, Aku would soon be an interest to few other teams. Teams like Qirex and Triakis would find interest in him. And as for Loto Kahanamoku, Aku would soon meet him once again.

    In 2217, One team would succeed in poaching him from Goteki 45 after he was withdrawn from the team entirely. However, while now traveling to what was a Bulgarian bought team HQ located in Greece, Aku would meet Loto again, now working for this strange team ran by a team Principal that calls himself 'The Benefactor'. Still a mentor to him, Loto now guides Aku to what is described as a much stronger, faster craft. Able to plow right through competition while also showing a vast top end speed. Meanwhile, Auricom and Qirex and their supporting teams were at war in the racing league, bringing their destruction in returning eliminator events fighting over control for the race commission. Aku would absolutely savor it by looking at the violence coming from each side, but his time would only come till 2218, required to train on this new craft around a makeshift track. Overall, he has earned around 13 medals in his career. (6G/3S/4B) As the time comes in 2218, Aku would be seen wearing a black and maroon pilot suit during the opening season at the Amphiseum. Most of the crowd would go quiet as the team he was now racing in would become the resurrected Tigron Enterprises, now piloting what is a new version of the infamous K-VSR craft. Noticeable nowadays with his Maori tattoos on his body and face, he will still become the most intimidating and dangerous pilot in the AGRL.

    Born on November 19th, 2177 in Sheffield England, Edgar Lawrence was just a regular individual who had done whatever's best for his parents. However, going to school like all children around Britain and graduating from highschool, Edgar had thoughts of joining the Navy, serving his country and experience a journey of a lifetime in which he thought was up to the challenge. While still continuing to go to public school for the rest of his teen years, he would soon departure off to the military, leaving his parents behind.

    Edgar's assignments while joining the Navy out in the British coast took him on the HMS Lapyx air carrier, part of the British Royal Navy. As of course, he chose to pilot fighter aircraft, and would take many procedures in order to pilot one. Testing positive on health and awareness, Edgar was off flying aircraft out in the sea, but despite his amusement in the air, he took himself very seriously and had become very skilled when flying an aircraft. His skills impressed his captains and other air-pilots during a number of sorties, awed to how fluent his flying was and having thoughts of him taking on an AG-craft after he would be dismissed from the ship. Edgar had stayed for roughly 10 years with the British Royal Navy, and during time, even taking part on air missions throughout the years, his skills had gotten more impressive, earning ace and a captain's position, leading his own squadron. The reaction time on his turns gave the impression as to how AG-pilot could fly through very close circuits on an AG-craft. Word would spread around the ship that perhaps one of these pilots including Edgar could have a chance at the upcoming FX350 league in 2205. Sooner or later, that option would come to one of them.

    By that year, Edgar was dismissed from the air carrier and was taken back to Britain, only to be given a personal letter from Icaras' team principal, Conner Burns, offering an opportunity to continue piloting but in terms of AG-Racing. At first, Edgar wasn't too sure to continue on as a racer, but his old captains would convince him otherwise, thinking he has what it takes to control an AG-craft. Seeing how flying had amused him over the years, AG-racing would become even more of it. Willing to take on another challenge, he takes that opportunity. The director would like to see Edgar at his headquarters the next day, expecting to meet him at the lobby.

    Waiting for the director of Icaras at an HQ in Dover UK, Edgar would see Connor Burns arrive at the front doors of the facility, coming from his resort in Makana just to meet him in person. Burns knew he was meeting with an excellent pilot, giving Edgar a great welcome to the Headquarters while offering him some tea. Like back on the Carrier, Edgar was shown around the facility, and was introduced to Icaras' new AG-Model craft, currently in testing for the FX400 league coming in 2207. The craft was light and aerodynamic but lacked on shield armor. Edgar was granted to be a current test pilot for the craft, as he began to take it to its paces out on the track of Talons Junction. The craft's cockpit was similar to the aircraft he flew on the carrier, feeling right at home. However, certain controls on the craft were very different, making it kind of confusing at first. But as he grew on to it for weeks of pilot testing, Edgar would become satisfied, getting use to the cockpit controls including the experience piloting the craft overall. Once testing was completed, he and the other pilots began a journey to North America for the 2206 opening season.

    The Icaras team was confident that their new craft design will take the title as the fastest team in the league. However, their speedy rivals from South America would show some improvements with their craft since the last AG-League, while Goteki 45, showed a much stronger and aggressive craft, making the pilots kind of nervous. Edgar however was up for it, but while looking at a female pilot next to him, she was feeling shaky and tense as he tried to calm her down. The female pilot had a thick German accent when speaking to him, feeling scared to pilot the craft than she was with the other teams.

    Edgar spoke to her: “Hey, is anything alright?"
    The female pilot answers, not use to English pronunciations: “..Ich.. Ich weiß es nicht. E don’t know. E don’t know vwhat I’m doing here anymore.”
    Edgar: "Don't worry too much. I'm sure you can handle this."
    Female Pilot: "But vwhat if E crash?"
    Edgar: "Just remember your training, start slow on the controls and you'll feel use to it right away, if you're still not too sure, don't be afraid to use the auto-assist."
    Female Pilot: "Last time E did that E lost control. Please, vwill you fly vwith me, E can't handle this yet, aose oth pilots look aggressiv, E must neet assistence."
    Edgar Thinks: "Well, that depends on the race. But if you're really in need of a teammate, you can stay with me."
    Female pilot: "Oh, thank you, uh…"
    Edgar answers: "Edgar Lawrence, at your service."
    Female Pilot: "Yvonne, mu…muh nome is Yvonne. Excuse my speech, muh English is not too good. Ich bin Deutsche. Germ."

    Yvonne Schottel was a rookie from Icaras that had just made it to the official league, coming from Germany though was raised in Austria. Yvonne had a bad experience while flying an AG-Craft, but she actually had a fear of flying after almost ending up in a flying disaster. Ever since then, she had been afraid of falling heights, thinking she would be better off on the ground flying AG-craft for a living instead, still having experience as a pilot. However, during a practice flight in Talons Junction, the high-altitude track got the best of her, losing her confidence and pinballing her ship by switching on the assist in panic. She had been nervous to control an AG-Craft and was even afraid of going off course. Though accepted for the AG-League based on her acceptable progress before the incident, she didn't want her fears to get in the way of the opportunity, only to be very anxious. Partnering with Edgar would be a huge relief for her, feeling calm with an experienced pilot. They continued on the arena track in the Amphiseum with the rest of their team, showing off the craft, and it was then on the two pilots would form a squad together.

    Edgar was no novice in the league, with skills as the Navy pilot, he performed beyond professionally. The top speed of the craft made him unstoppable during AG-Speed events, until meeting up with the Speed leaders of the VX League. Piranha's best Speed pilot Thiago Castillo posed a major challenge during a straight run on the Makana Bay Bridge west of the Island of Makana. Thiago had close finishes and always took home the gold medal leaving Edgar on 2nd or 3rd place, runner up with Triakis Speed Pilot, Liana Morelli. Edgar would continue in normal events during the FX400 league in 2207. In the course of 5 years, he has earned 7 gold medals and counting, including 2 trophies during the beginning of the decade. He manages to win the 2210 VX Speed Championships against his two arch speed rivals, winning up against Thiago just inches from the finish line. In 2211, his second trophy would be shared with team partner Yvonne Schottel during a Rapier Team Tournament across Europe. For Schottel, it was the first ever tournament she has won during her career as an AG-Pilot.

    Edgar received many sponsors during the last five years, including hiring another team pilot on his squad, 18 year old Jacob Reilly, hailing from Ireland. Like Yvonne, Edgar quickly made a partnership with the teenage pilot, even teaching him hints while on the track together. Jacob would continue to race on his own however, while Edgar still raced in team events with Yvonne. As for relationships with other team pilots, Edgar would still hold an arch rivalry with Thiago Castillo. Both pilots still took a grudge in speed and normal events including Liana Morelli, making up a rivalry triangle throughout the VX Drag Racing League.

    With recent new rivals in 2213, Edgar would also face Goteki 45's Aku Tanaki. Out of nowhere, Tanaki began attacking Edgar in a certain number of combat events, posing as a weak craft. Despite the heavy craft of Goteki, Edgar would use his instincts from the Navy during combat-based events, having him almost survive every weapon enabled race he competed in. These tactics would also help him in eliminator events years later. As for Aku, he still showed mean spirit towards the British pilot, and would almost start a fight with him, even before races. With allies, Edgar would only count on the team's main allies Qirex-RD. Surprisingly though, despite issues with Goteki 45, he was also acquaintance with Goteki lead pilot Noelani Kekumu outside of racing, showing that the arch rival team isn't too mean spirited after all. With Yvonne, the relationship also grew as she continued to have the courage controlling a craft in faster speed classes, facing her flying fears overall. She would then show a small affection towards Edgar in later seasons.

    2215 would upgrade the racing league into the FX500 as the teams would bring in their latest Fury prototype craft suited for the next gen of AG. Edgar was one of the first to introduce Icaras' new craft opening a new season with a faster and stronger ship in the league. In continuation, Edgar continued to face newer challenges, and possibly earn the fastest pilot title in this neck-breaking sport, only to be sided with the fastest female pilot in the world, Liana Morelli. Unfortunately, Liana's career would officially stop in 2214, after dealing with a race accident in the All-Star Championship, only to retire in glory promising one more round win, finishing the championship overall. Edgar was then left with Thiago Castillo, only for him to retire major racing as well. At this point there was no one getting in the way of his racing progress aside from rogue Goteki pilot, Aku. Edgar would earn his place as one of Icaras' elite pilots the same year, standing next to pilots like German, Sibrand Van Saur, Austrian, Esmail Malki, Irish, Julia O'Connell, and Dutch, Agusta Van Agteren. The four aces of Icaras would proudly be introduced once more by director, Connor Burns, in the next opening season leading into 2217.

    The current year would be a violent one for Edgar, getting in the crossfire of two battling sides fighting over for the race commission. Going on since 2215, Nadia Elenova's Qirex-RD wages war on the Belmondo Foundation, fighting against Auricom and etc. throughout the FX500 league. Though Icaras was an ally of Qirex, they remain neutral throughout the conflict, not risking their new Alaunus model craft even for their allied teams. Connor Burns was a good friend to Qirex director, Feliks Levovitch who was still in control of his company at the time, but possibly not for long. Nadia's new position as race director however was where Connor could not support the team any longer yet doesn't take sides with the Belmondo Foundation. Despite being cautious within events of the league, Edgar would risk taking his craft in open eliminator events, proving he could fight even with the team's disadvantage in combat-based events.

    Edgar Lawrence. What was once an ace pilot during his service in the military proved to be one of the racing league's very best of the current generation. Having much skill carried over in adapting to a high-speed low to the ground AG-craft, would give him the rank of a veteran pilot in future seasons. He has gone through a good number of leagues including the VX division, proven to be the fastest overall by Icaras. With over 27 medals and counting, (14G/8S/5B) it should be enough to be accepted as a contender for the ASC. However, there is no confirmation from Conner Burns of his acceptance at this time.

    Yvonne Schöttel was born on October 13th, 2185 in Munich Germany. Her parents were from different countries; her mother was German while her father was Austrian, and during some time as a child she had moved and was mostly raised in her father's home country of Austria. While most of her early life is remained unknown, Yvonne started piloting aircraft at the age of 18. Along with her father they were both aviation pilots, being taught by him as well as taking a flight school in Innsbruck. For over a year, Yvonne had progressed her experience in the air, falling in love with it as she took to skies out in the alps. She enjoyed flying across the beautiful mountain range surrounding the valleys that hold the incredible city. The sky was always her true home, not wanting to come down for anything. But unfortunately, one terrifying experience would scar her for possibly the rest of her life, changing the way she thought about flying.

    It was a nice clear day in Innsbruck, Yvonne, as well as her father, went out on an old ion powered VTOL aircraft in the late afternoon out in the mountains. They flew up to a good altitude, seeing the sun setting down reflecting the snow off the cliffs below. Everything was going well, until Yvonne started to have trouble with the electronic controls flying the aircraft. They've checked the battery before taking off and were unsure what the problem was going through the control panel. All of a sudden, 3 of the rotors had stopped turning as they started to descend from the sky and began dipping/spinning the aircraft down. Yvonne couldn't balance up the craft, nor reset the rotors. She then starts to panic as she was facing the ground while starting to spin faster. Her father immediately tries to reset the system, unsure how much altitude they've lost as his daughter begins to yell at him to fix it. Yvonne thought she and her father were gonna die, crying as she was about to give up hope until her father got the system working again. She was told to turn on the auto pilot to balance out the aircraft, seeing the trees below get closer and closer until the craft straighten out with Yvonne pulling the stick all the way with the low altitude warning blaring off. They began to lift up just a few feet from hitting the ground or trees. Right away they set out for an emergency landing reaching the valley before any more problems could occur.

    As they got back, Yvonne was just glad to be on the ground safely, still trembling from what just happened only for her father to calm her down. She had never felt so scared in her life, almost facing death including her father. As the aircraft was inspected, it would turn out that the battery was faulty after all. Considering it was also an old VTOL aircraft, the components were never up to date or replaced. Luckily for them, they were able to turn on the rotors again and kept it in the air for a while until landing. Eventually the aircraft would be replaced of its parts, making sure that it won't turn off on them or anyone else again in the sky.

    A month would pass since the incident, and Yvonne had never gone back to the sky since then. Still traumatized, she has sworn not to set foot or control an aircraft ever again in her life, giving it up as a hobby in general. Her father would continue to fly overall, but the absence of his daughter wouldn't the same or when she flew for him. However, Yvonne still missed controlling a craft, yet she never wanted to go back up to the sky. Still having experience and great piloting skills, she didn't want to throw it to waste. When the FX350 AGRL was announced, Yvonne had a solution. Thinking she still had what it takes to be a pilot without risking being in the air, she would make a decision by transferring her skills into Anti-Gravity racing. Her father thought, "If it makes her happy, I'll substitute this as her way of expressing her pilot skills." Eventually, Yvonne takes a bullet train west into France, signing herself to become an AG-pilot at age 20, in 2205.

    Taking her training at the FEISAR HQ academy outside of Paris, Yvonne had made quite an impression during the first year of training, giving her a spot with the Icaras team in Great Britain. She took another step on an open track with the Icaras craft in the UK, having a faster feel while controlling it. Though already making it to the FX350 league and excited to enter, she has yet to pilot a craft on an actual course. She goes to Talons Junction to test with the other rookie pilots, only to have a first glance of the track which made her feel a bit uncomfortable. The track was pretty high off the ground, as Yvonne's fear of falling started to set in just by looking down, flashing back to her incident. Setting up for a test run looking down on the track, she would also visualize the track becoming narrow, now nervous to take it on at a high-end speed. She was testing on Flash, yet it was still fast enough to where she must use the airbrakes in tight corners. However, Talons Junction was an easy track, only to get tighter at the end of every lap. As Yvonne saw the rest of the Icaras pilots take off one by one, she nervously takes off right after.

    Coming off the starting line, Yvonne carefully followed the pilot in front of her, taking the first few turns pretty good. On the second straight, she tries not to look down on the clear track below, focusing on the pilot in front of her and managing to reach the next tunnel. However, coming up was a big loop taking on the maglock part of the track. As she looked up and took the loop, she would close her eyes going over it, only to scrape her craft on the sides while quickly trying to straighten it out. At this point, she was starting to shake anxiously again, losing track of the pilot in front of her. While going through the chicanes quite easily, it was after going into another dark tunnel where she suddenly faces her big challenge on the course, taking a hairpin turn. Unfortunately, while taking the turn, she forgets to use the airbrakes and was about to hit the side wall coming up. In a panic, she instead switches on the pilot assist, only to turn it on at the worst moment possible, causing the craft to ping pong out the turn too sharply. Violently being forced side to side and too scared to level it out, she switched off the auto pilot only to slam the craft on another track wall, spinning the craft around and scraping the wall drifting backwards. She just stayed there on the track, still floating as aid came by to see if she was alright. Yvonne was not injured but was badly shaken. She blankly stared at her cockpit while paramedics tried to remove her, still shaking and quickly turning her head by her nervous reactions as they tried calming her down. She was taken back under the track hangers where she then relaxes from her incident. Unfortunately, this would also scar her throughout the racing league.

    Yvonne never thought she would have an experience this bad first time in the league. It didn't help that her fear of falling had intervened, first trying out her run on Talon's. She was also not use to the narrow tracks, only familiar with the open courses back at the academies where she had trained herself. It was smart of her to turn on the pilot-assist, yet her panic caused her to switch it on at a track corner, only for it to unreliably straiten the ship out while still heading towards the track wall, causing the ping pong effect with her craft. Even worse, her official season was starting in a couple of days in North America, traveling with the team to enter their AG-craft for the FX350 league in 2206.

    Though flying on a Blimp Airship to Navada USA, her fear never gave in just as long as she didn't look down at the front of the ship, showing a view of the ground below. While successfully docking at a port near the Amphiseum in Las Vegas, Yvonne and the rest of the new Icaras pilots headed to the arena to introduce their team for the new season. However, Yvonne was the only nervous pilot currently in the lineup, looking anxiously at the other pilots from other teams. Suddenly a pilot next to her speaks, asking if she was ok. She looked at his nation badge of the Union Jack on his upper right shoulder, realizing he was from Great Britain. Knowing some English, she spoke to him in a thick German accent. The tall male pilot would look at her as she begged for help and advice. Without thinking, she then asked him for assistance in races, possibly as a wingman. The Pilot would give her some tips including a promise to become a squadmate, as Yvonne thanked the him and wondered of his name, introducing himself as Edgar Lawrence. Edgar once served in the British Navy as an aircraft pilot, only to be dismissed and came into AG-Racing. Use to piloting aircraft, it was no different to him on an AG-craft; Yvonne could relate to it. As the introduction was over, they both went their separate ways, hoping to meet again sometime soon.

    Yvonne tried to gain rep and worth in races for Icaras in the first season. However, she relied closely with the pilot-assist in every race/event she entered. Unfortunately, she would struggle to catch up with the other team pilots, despite having the fastest craft on the track. Though using the assist, she was still nervous to take on tight turns, even on venom class by slowing down. Yvonne also refused to race on certain tracks in some parts of the world as her fear would still haunt her just by looking at its sections. Moa Therma for its sideways loop, Metropia for its drop, and Sol 2 for obvious reasons, including other AG-tracks similar to them. Because of this, Yvonne's rank became very low with Icaras' best pilots, not even picked for any tournaments around the world and would remain so for a few seasons. She didn't know what to do, realizing her fear and anxiety were keeping her from improving, only to remember the pilot she had asked for help. Sure enough, she would meet Edgar again on closed events in Makana as he tries to help her get out of the anxiety & fear, even if he had to push it on her to completely face her fear of falling on higher tracks.

    Throughout the years in the FX400 Racing League, Yvonne and Edgar continued to race together in team events. However at the time, Edgar was racing with teenage Irish pilot, Jacob Reilly, as Yvonne was mostly on her own battling her anxiety. She was able to keep going in races and catch up with the rest of the pilots in the mid pack. Sure enough she had to challenge her most discomfort tracks, trusting the Maglock strips on the course to get her through the race. Eventually she was willing to race on tracks, Moa Therma, Metropia, and etc, but still refused to race on Sol 2. By 2212, she gets over most of her anxiety and would reach with the top 3 positions in events. Back in 2211 however, Yvonne competed with Edgar on a rapier class team tournament in Europe, winning her first ever gold medal and sponsor, including a trophy. Yvonne would continue to thank Edgar, but also would have an interest in him. Though no allies were made from other teams, she eventually develops a rivalry with FEISAR French pilot, Clara Bellerose. Clara was also an amateur pilot but kind of oblivious to Yvonne, yet she does notice her taking close finishes in races, making some competition for whatever position they were going for. She would take most of the positions in front or back of Yvonne, despite sometimes being in the mid pack. However, their rivalry would never get too heated up outside or in races.

    By 2215, now competing for the FX500 AGRL, Yvonne was now racing without the Pilot-Assist in her new Fury prototype race craft. The fear of falling also fades as she soon faces the highest AG-track in Makana, Sol 2. Earning more medals, a new sponsor, and a new speed class, she would soon become one of Icaras's best female pilots. Though she had reached professional, it will take her plenty more seasons to become an Elite pilot in the racing league. Yvonne wouldn't have gotten this far if she haven't asked Edgar for his help and to become his wingman, relieving the anxiety that had scarred her since the beginning of her first track run and conquering her falling fear in technical/high circuits, only to now battle against her team's main rivals throughout the FX500 racing league.

    The year of 2218 would mark Yvonne's 12th season in her entire racing career. She holds 14 medals and a team tournament trophy, sharing it with Edgar Lawrence and remaining his secondary pilot till this day. (5G/4S/5B) After the season, she would go back to her father's home in Austria to show him the achievements she has made over the years. Surprisingly she would ask about one thing involving aircraft at the airfield and if they were fully checked before takeoff. As her father questions why, she then answers: "I would like to go back up someday. ..I'm not afraid to fly anymore, thanks to.. a special someone I've raced with over the years."

    Author Note: The beginning backstory of this pilot may sound very familiar to some if you use to watch Discovery Channel’s 2007 future reality series, 2057 (The City). So I will admit I kind of ripped off the series here for this pilot. That is all.

    Born on March 15th, 2194, outside of Dublin Ireland, Jacob was just an ordinary kid but with a gifted trait. He was a computer whiz during his childhood taken after his grandfather that was involved during the F9000 league. His parents were from different countries however as his father was still involved in a business back in Great Britain, while Jacob still lived with his mother including his grandfather (mother's father) back in Ireland. Jacob's grandfather, dating back to the F9000 era, helped write and maintain source codes in computer programming, maintaining with computer powered robots, weaponry, including team race-craft most notably with FEISAR in the 2160's. Jacob had learned some tech skills from him, even going to school learning about Software developments at the age of 13.

    Unfortunately, his grandfather's latest projects won't mix with Jacob's mother as his grandfather became addicted to computer hacking, having him make a decision to leave the Reilly residence worrying of becoming a bad influence to his grandson. However, the grandfather still refused himself to move out, though Jacob was aware of the knowledge he learned from him and how his mother would feel about it. But despite his right from wrong, Jacob was a curious and mischievous boy. He would take some of his grandfather's components, gadgets, and flash drives and starts to hack with small things like videogames, his handhelds, his own computer, and other electronics around his house. (Even in the future, hacking still exist) This began to fill his temptations by the age of 16, as he used his grandfather's codes and tools to hack into things outside of his home. His first major attempt was hacking into his school's computer system, either changing grades from his difficult classes, messing with school robots, vending machines, or bypassing a school computer to play videogames. However, his gadgets would mess up electronics overtime to a point where he almost corrupts the school system entirely. Surprisingly though, never got caught for it, but it wasn't the worst thing he has done.

    Despite of this, he became decently popular with other students on campus for his troubling mischief, as he used his skills to impress his friends and peers. Now going for hacks that would get him into serious trouble, his biggest attempt was to hack into the city's network on his own computer by projecting an inappropriate picture all around the city's advertisement boards/holograms. While doing so, he accidently mixes up the codes and instead sends an ancient computer virus along with the file. His prank goes horribly wrong as the virus started to overload the city's network, even worse, it was about to corrupt the economy system all over Dublin. Jacob knew he was in huge trouble, thinking of the possibility of going to juvenile hall for his action or worse.
    Suddenly, his grandfather bursts through his bedroom door: "Jacob boy, what have you done!?" his grandfather shouts at him.
    Jacob responds: "It's not what it looks like." Only to also have the inappropriate picture on his computer screen.
    They quickly attempt to stop the downloading process, but the virus was already sent. Moments later, the Irish police burst into their home tracking the source. They find the two in Jacob's room, accusing his grandfather for sending the virus, only for Jacob to quickly admit to them that he accidently sent it. He doesn't realize what might happen to him next.

    Fortunately, the virus wasn't as big as they thought it was, as the city's protection system destroys it hours later, but still left some of the city to be somewhat in shambles. Jacob's mother would soon find out after hearing what was going on while she was out for a business. As she rushes back home, she would see her son being arrested in front of their house. As she questioned the police to figure out what just happened, she immediately began to blame her own father for what her son had done, thinking he was now addicted to hacking and almost corrupting the city. While taken to jail and sent to trial with both his parents and grandfather there, Jacob was read his rights, only for the judge to call up Jacob's grandfather next. When investigators had searched their home, they discovered that the grandfather had a history with hacking before, keeping illegal hardware that caused Jacob's arrest in the first place. While Jacob's grandfather was going to be charged and be taken to prison, Jacob wanted another way to pay for his punishments. Instead of paying for community service in juvenile detention, his other option was to compete in the AGRL, serving his time to race in the JX to FX400 to pay his bail. Jacob would immediately accept the option.

    At age 17 in 2211, Jacob was taken by the Irish government to France, as he was sent to the FEISAR academy under their watch. Jacob was never much interested in AG-racing, but has heard about his grandfather's past being part of the F9000 league. His only way of freedom was to win races in the league, having his earnings go into his bail. Despite of this, Jacob was also competing for his grandfather who was charged and pleaded guilty in trial. Jacob was the youngest male recruit in the academy as he would take weeks of training in zone mode for the league and was eventually strapped on to a real AG-craft. The results from his testing throughout the months of training would surprise the academy, including himself. Jacob had no idea that he could control a large fast-moving craft, and was shock to find out that he was chosen by the fastest team in the league, the Icaras. Jacob would get transferred to their team in the UK soon after.

    The Icaras academy was more surprised than FEISAR as they saw a teenager lined up with the rest of the Icaras recruits. They wanted to see Jacob's performance on their test track as he began to feel nervous stepping into the cockpit to show the instructors. While getting use to the Icaras craft for the first time around the course, the new ship felt faster and handled more differently to him than the FEISAR X4 model. He would prove otherwise to the Icaras facility, impressed by his piloting skills for being a young age. He would later gain experience with the Icaras craft as it now leads him to officially compete in the FX league all the way in Makana, bypassing the Junior division (JX). Jacob was heading in the right direction, hoping to score bronze or better in the official league. He enters late in the 2211 season.

    While landing in Makana, Jacob was still on a mission for his and his grandfather's freedom. He needed a skilled teammate for one tournament as his luck would get him chosen by someone experienced on his team. British pilot and navy veteran, Edgar Lawrence would become his teammate and lead pilot in the later seasons. Both pilots would get along and were able to communicate in team events, earning Jacob attention and placing top placed finishes in races. While continuing on in 2212 at age 18, Jacob would own his own Icaras race craft, as he decides to alternate the team colors with a black & brown livery. He was also recognizable by spectators and fans wearing his own set of goggles that were compatible with his helmet HUD. Going at it alone he was able to receive his first bronze medal in another tournament by himself in early 2213. Overall, he was earning money quickly, but was still short on his grandfather's bail. But despite trying to earn money for his freedom, Jacob was actually enjoying his punishment as a career. Around this time however, he would be eyed on by another person other than his watchers.

    Jacob thought someone else was eyeing him, only for it to be an attraction. One day in the league, he was approached by a girl with beautiful sapphire blue-eyes and blond hair, about his age who was surprisingly a pilot but also an AG-Queen. This young British lady would introduce herself as Loraine Johnson, secondary squad pilot for Harimau, but originally from FEISAR. Loraine had eyed Jacob since his entry in the league and after transferring to Harimau not too long ago. To her she thought Jacob was kind of cute, admiring him from a distance only to finally approach him. She was kind of shy, but still flirty at the same time, though Jacob already knew by her behavior that she had a crush on him. But despite her beauty, he felt awkward being near her, mostly because she was a few inches taller than him, more so when she wore heels. Jacob would talk to her, but doesn't tell her why he's in the AGRL. In his mind he didn't want Loraine to know what he got in trouble for, mostly to not have her think he was some criminal or addict with the use of his grandfather's hacking tools. However, the more he talked, the more attracted Loraine got, hearing his Irish. A friendly relationship would only develop between them, but on the track, they were secretly allies, only for Jacob to be impressed & attracted by Loraine's racing skills, including her performances as an AG-Queen. It was only then Jacob would now feel the same way about her.

    While continuing on in the league, Jacob doesn't become professional till 2214, a year before the FX500 league. During the two years and his entry in races, he would manage to pay bail for himself and his grandfather, only to destroy the flash drives and tools that allowed them to hack and for their codes to be confiscated. But despite reaching his goal and was a free man, Jacob wanted to continue racing, and sure enough was earning silver in tournaments, only moments behind reaching gold against Icaras' speedy foes, Piranha. At some point he would soon tell Loraine about why he was there in the first place, having her understand his mistake and temptations back home.

    It was already sundown at Sinucit, Loraine was about to head back to England after a long final season of the FX400 league, waiting for the Blimp to arrive at port, only to be excited to see Jacob come by for one last goodbye.

    Jacob lets Loraine hug him, only for her to notice a concerned face on him, asking him: "Jacob, what's wrong?"
    Jacob Responds: "Nothing it's... it's just that... I need to tell you something, that I think you should know."

    In Loraine's mind, she thought Jacob was about to tell her 3 special words, considering her affection towards him and leaving after the season.

    She responds in kind of an excited tone: "Yes, what is it?"
    Jacob nervously answers: "I... I don't know how to explain it."
    Loraine, being antsy: "You can tell me anything, just let it out."
    Jacob: "Do you know... why I was here, racing? Why I had people watching me? ..Because I did something stupid back home."
    Loraine, feeling some confusion: "..Okay?"

    Jacob explains: "... I was a hacker, I had gadgets and codes that I took from my granddad, that I can take control of everything that you can think of electronically. I became addicted to this stuff just like my granddad did that I messed with everything that I took control of. Then one day, I went for something bigger, I took control of the city's network system just to put some.. well.. some stupid picture on these billboards, until I realized... I put in the wrong codes to the system that it sent a virus to the network. I almost corrupted my country's economy. Next thing, police ran through my front door. Me, my granddad, we got arrested outside our home."

    Loraine stayed quiet as he continued: "We went through trial, my grandad was sentenced, but for me, they sentence me to something else. I had a chance to bail my grandad and I if I can compete, and win money from races in this racing league. I had people keeping an eye on me, and I did what I was told. Few years racing here, earning my bank, I now had enough to pay bail for me and granddad. I'm now free. Loraine,.. before you think of anything, understand this. I've now changed. I'm not gonna hack anything anymore. This racing has made me want a career in this and I want to keep racing. And you, you've also changed me. Ever since I saw you raced, saw you dance, I thought you were amazing. You're the most talented girl I've ever met, and now I just want you to still race with me for the new season. I do like you Loraine, don't think I've been ignoring you. Why else would I come here to find you? I just didn't want you to know about me too soon. Do you understand?"

    Loraine was surprised but understood what he said, still staying quiet, but Jacob thought she didn't like him anymore. "You think I'm a criminal or some low-life hacker, do you? I Understand." Though feeling like he'll lose Loraine as a friend, they were all erased from his mind when Loraine suddenly gave him a small kiss on his cheek. "I don't think so." Loraine said, accepting his honesty and mistakes, not caring what he did nor was a big deal to her, knowing someone worse that was more dishonest and unforgiving. Blushing from her kiss, she leaves Jacob behind, feeling awkward but smiling as the Blimp now arrived. Jacob also blushed, considering it was his first kiss overall, now setting a motive for next season. Jacob was now determined to become the best next gen pilot in the league, and continues to race with one of the fastest teams on Earth.

    Currently in 2217, Jacob Reilly succeeds further winning more events from the FX500 league, still recognized in the black and brown livery passed down on Icaras' Alaunus craft. He would barely prevail against Piranha's Thai pilot, Chayond Puntashima, having a rivalry dating back to 2213 with Chayond as the prevailing winner in most cases back in the FX400. Jacob always wanted to beat Cheyond for once in the league, only to be defeated multiple times falling short on that of the Thai pilot's skill level. Already heating back up years later, the two would now face each other once more, only for Jacob to win a gold medal in a close race tournament, followed by Chayond taking silver back in 2216. Jacob was able to defeat an elite pilot in his career, but is still a long way for him to become one himself, taking notes from his squad leader, Edgar Lawrence, in order to accomplish it. Only 14 medals were earned during Jacob's 6 years of racing. (5G/6S/3B) As for his relationship with Loraine Johnson, she was back with FEISAR the following year. The two would officially go out with each other in a closed event in Makana, taking a trip to Vineta K's beaches during the afternoon and having a dinner date at a high-end restaurant in Sinucit during the evening. They would leave with their teams once again going their separate ways, only to say goodbye with a first lip to lip kiss, while 5'5"ft Jacob stands on his tip toes in order to reach Loraine's 5'7" height. (5'10" in heels) As for racing overall, they were still close allies.

    Born on October 26th, 2176 on the east coast of Canberra, Australia, Xavier Chaffin was a weapons expert of the Incendiary Projectile Supplies Inc. part of Triakis Industries. As a partner of Triakis, he has helped designed and tested out weaponry for the FX300 league, including a test pilot of the industry's new AG-craft. However, during armor testing, Xavier had almost faced death while conducting with new weaponry.

    In 2198, a year after the opening season in Makana, the team was still under weapon development while their craft continued on in the racing league. Xavier and his group of experts were testing projectile weapons on their craft's armor for stronger defense. Behind a force field in a weapons lab, they fired explosive projectile rockets on their craft's plating, showing major success of the armor's durability overall. However, one of the rockets didn't explode on impact. They assumed that it was a dud as they carried it back in the laboratory and settled it on a workbench. Xavier was fixing a wire component on a swarm rocket when he heard a strange noise coming from the dud. Wondering what noise it was making, he carefully kept away from it, when suddenly, it explodes like a grenade in front of him. A shard structs Xavier's face as he falls to the ground bleeding. His workers immediately rushed to him as they saw him on the floor with sprayed blood, seeing a shard right in his upper cheek and nose, and was taken to a hospital immediately. Luck was on his shoulder however, as the shard was not deep enough to have killed him as he recovered a month later. Unfortunately, he continued work with now a large scar on his face and with a damaged eye.

    As a test pilot, Xavier was trained on a test craft before being able to ride the team's main ship for the FX300 league. He also tested weapons on the craft including having them being fired upon himself, confident of the ship's shielding. On an actual course, the maneuverability was incredible on his hands, only to have a certain component on the craft to make the maneuverability possible. For being a new coming team in the AGRL, they've won many races and tournaments during the first season, including supplying weapons for combat events. However, getting in their nerves by teams Auricom and AG-Systems, they would restrict their weapons for every race, but due to popular demand, weapons became enabled in the sport, despite some responsibly with the fall of the F9000 league.

    Xavier became an official pilot by the end of the 22nd century, racing professionally. His partner, Matilda Rotthier, shared the same experience in the late FX300 league as both pilots were the most aggressive duo in team events. While they and their team were considered almost impossible to beat, their rival teams showed optimism towards their best pilots. Professional AG-Systems pilots, Katsu Sasaki and Viona De Jong, hold on their rivalry with Xavier and Matilda by the end of the FX300 league in 2206. The last FX300 season would hosts the All-Star Championships that same year, having the last tournament race in mainland Makana. Triakis were completely dominating their side of the bracket, while AG-Systems dominate theirs. Triakis' best pilot, Vincent Stephenson, would easily stay in front their rival team, winning the race a split second away by AG-Systems pilot, Thierry Caluroso.

    Xavier and Matilda would watch their team win and take the podium, but unfortunately, that win would soon take a turn. Just a moment after, the legal authorities wanted to take a closer look at the ships as Xavier was still in the hangers with his team of workers. This then made him nervous when they found a device on the port side of the craft. His team's directors would try to make excuses, as the officials figured out that it was a RIDS device (Reverse-Inertia Deceleration System). The team of Triakis were compromised, as their device was considered illegal from technical regulations, only for them to take their excuses to court along with the directors of AG-Systems. Triakis were disqualified from the 2206 ASC and were fined millions of Australian dollars including their first place on the grid for the FX300 league.

    Not only was Triakis disqualified from the final FX300 ASC, Xavier would lose his reputation of wins during the league. It didn't helped much that his main rival, Katsu Sasaki, would be the one to take it away from him, only to boil tensions in later seasons of the FX350/400 league. As for the team craft with Xavier involved of its development, the craft would suffer control during testing back in Australia, as the craft could not take on sharp turns without the RIDS. He would take out his frustrations on his co-workers as nothing good would come out of the team's losses. Xavier and his team needed a solution fast, turning to their team director, Samuel McNaughton for a solution. What soon followed by the company was a deal by Assegai in receiving their team's handling devices. Their Nicknamed Anne II craft showed a major difference in handling controls as it then became the next best thing of replacing the RIDS while being a legal component. As an offer to give thanks, Triakis would lend Assegai much better Armor plating for their craft as both teams were happy of their trades, becoming major allies for the upcoming leagues.

    Xavier would make a comeback for his team during the proving grounds of the FX350 league. However, the craft still showed problems when going up against their rival teams once again, most by AG-Systems. Surprisingly, their craft did show unexpected top speed power, when independent pilot Liana Morelli took it beyond its limits in top speed events in the VX League up against teams Piranha, Icaras, as well as Van Uber. But despite their power in a straight line, it was still the most difficult craft to control on the circuit. Xavier was the only pilot to master the craft's controls in every event he entered, followed by the team's elite pilots competing in the ASC. His performance however was very aggressive towards other pilots, most brutal against Katsu Sasaki of AG-Systems, still furious over his team's disqualification.

    The years following 2212 have led Xavier and his teammate Matilda becoming the best pilots for Triakis Industries in standard events. Throughout the FX400 league, both pilots would earn plenty of gold and silver medals, most strongly in combat events. By 2215 in the FX500 league, their Fury design craft would become valiant over their competitors. As for their arch rival teams, Auricom and AG-Systems, the Aussie team would still become a big threat towards the anti-aggressive craft as they would literally plow right through them in any racing championship. Triakis were the hardies of the AG-race commission, and their power with weaponry remained evident throughout the years in the AGRL. They would step up to destroy anyone that comes near them, only to take back what was rightfully theirs since the FX300 league.

    With that said, Triakis would band with Qirex-RD along with teams opposing the Belmondo Foundation. New Qirex Race Director, Nadia Elenova, would convince Triakis to engage a fight with AG-Systems, still despising them since 2206. Qirex's intention however was an attack on the Foundation for the race commission, calling for war on Auricom and their allies. Xavier would support Nadia's goals, only to gladly once again have a fight with Auricom's closest ally, AG-Systems, specifically attacking Katsu Sasaki. With the return of eliminator events in the FX500, it would also help Triakis supply weapons for the teams including their enemies, earning their wealth by selling their products overall.

    In 2217, Xavier Chaffin would continue to lead the charge in combat events on the offence towards AG-Systems. However, his nemesis, Katsu, would discontinue in the FX500 league, passing it down to his squadmates, Sean Cooper and Sofia Rossetti to defend the race commission. Triakis would prove strong in eliminator events, known as the battleground for teams to destroy their competitor's craft. AG-Systems however, would still fight back against Triakis despite the odds, only to give the Aussie team a struggle to hold their ground in these events. Xavier would not back down along with Matilda to see the destruction of AG-Systems. But as the next year progressed, it would appear that an unsuspecting team would reappear to get in the way, not in support for any side of the fight, only to prove who is the strongest/aggressive team in the league. What would also upset them was the similarity of the rogue team's craft design. This rogue team only had one experimental craft all this time, only now they had somehow manufactured a number of them for the mid FX500 league and will attack every team including Triakis. Triakis, along with Xavier, would set aside their differences with AG-Systems, only to now fight a new rival on the block in 2218, Tigron Enterprises. AG-Systems on the other hand, would do the same.

    Overall in his 20 years of racing in multiple leagues. Xavier has earned over 30 medals and counting. (18G/10S/5B) And there won't be a sign of this Veteran leaving the sport or team anytime soon.

    Matilda Rotthier was born on October 25th, 2172 in Namur Belgium, 2 years after the collapse of the F9000 league. While Matilda keeps her personal life to herself, Pilots would know her as a reckless and troublesome contender in the AGRL. She went into AG-Racing first time in France training with FEISAR in preparation of the Amateur FX150 league in 2191 at age 19. However, due to her trouble and aggressive behavior and racing style, she was terrifying to most of the trainee pilots, until pushing one female trainee to face her on a non-assigned practice race. The two weren't allowed to race on the test track; as they were about to leave the line, they were stopped by officials soon after. Noticing the Belgian trainee being the one to cause trouble from the rest, Matilda was suspended, while the other trainee under the name, Viona De-Jong, was given a warning, and was sent back in line with the rest of the training pilots. Soon after, Matilda was kicked from the FEISAR academy, wanting none of her unnecessary aggression. Thinking she had no other place to go, she was suddenly met by a businessman from Triakis Industries outside of the academy. Watching and knowing how aggressive she was, the person would give Matilda another chance with what he described as "a much tougher racing team".

    Matilda would now pilot something that suited her, heading out southeast to mainland Australia to a training facility in control of Triakis. Their training craft was something she needed, becoming amused when she took control of it for the first time and feeling its tough weight. Some of the pilot trainees there would actually have the guts to try and take her on during practice races, as this would now satisfy her throughout the years in training. In 2193, she would receive her pilot license from the HQ, and was able to compete in remaining races of the FX150 up until 2197. Matilda would make her presence felt towards the weakest pilots in the league, and by the inaugural season of the Official FX300 league in Makana, she was more than ready to race.

    Matilda becomes a worthy pilot to Triakis as both aggression and use of weaponry made her a potential beast on the track. Paring up with lead pilot, Xavier Chaffin, they would completely dominate any team race they entered. It was easy going for them until meeting their pure racing opposites from AG-Systems. Katsu Sasaki and surprisingly to Matilda, her first long ago opponent, Viona De-Jong, were a force to be reckon with by their pure racing style. Despite their rival's optimism, Matilda and Xavier would mostly outmatch then, earning sponsors and ranking up each division in the FX300 league. Unfortunately for Triakis, the final championships of the FX300 in 2206 would become their stalling point.

    Triakis would win the an All-Star tournament of the FX300 league, only to be disqualified by their use of the RIDS. Triakis, including Matilda and Xavier who had won a good number of standard events were stripped of their reputation, only to be rewarded to their rival pilots and team, Katsu and Viona of AG-S. Triakis were upset, Xavier was furious, and Matilda seeked destruction. Like Xavier, Matilda wanted vengeance against her own arch rival, Viona. She continued to battle her throughout the FX350 and 400 league events, racing an updated version of their race-craft.

    Matilda would reach Veteran by 2212, winning many gold medals while also losing some to her arch nemesis. Her aggression would worry teams, Auricom and AG-Systems, only for it to be one of her intentions by making herself a threat to other teams. By the time the FX500 arrived in 2215, Matilda would show her fury full force with the new Anne IV 'Victoria' model craft. Around this same time, war would break out in the new league between Auricom and Qirex, along with supporting teams including Triakis. Eliminator would make a comeback in the new league, only for Matilda to savor the sheer violence inflicted in these events. Like Xavier, she was in full support of Qirex's new director and pilot, Nadia Elenova, fighting for control of the race commission. Their target overall in this AGRL war was still with AG-Systems, and will do whatever it takes to completely eliminate them from racing overall. Despite Matilda's arch rival Viona retiring back in 2214, she herself was not going to retire anytime soon, only to continue her reign of aggression by current 2218.

    While being the most aggressive female pilot in her years of racing, Matlida Rotthier would soon meet her perfect match in a form of a team in 2218. Coming out of the shadows of which the world thought they have been gone since 2170, the once Neo-Soviet powerhouse, Tigron Enterprises, makes an official return into the FX500 racing league. With their pilots showing aggression between the racing conflict of the two fighting sides, Matilda would get knocked around a number of times by this rogue team in eliminator events. She would have enough of being out-matched and out-gunned while Trakis would feel the same. However, they weren't the only team out of all to be pushed around by this new menace. Overall, from more than 20 seasons, Matilda has earned about 25 medals. (12G/6S/7B) If she were to retire from racing, it was not gonna be by numerous defeats from Tigron. She'll fight ferociously, even if she has to put AG-Systems aside as prey, going after the other wolf from Tigron, Boyka Olganova.

    Author Note: A big mention to Keg's WipEout Chronicles on a familiar AG-Pilot in his series. Yes, that pilot is one of mine featured in his Chronicles and here is the backstory following this pilot's premature retirement. A thanks to Keg_11 for showing me this before posting, otherwise this pilot would still be racing in the FX500 League. I would have decided to keep her racing anyway, but I like Keg's direction for this pilot better. So it's official

    Liana Morelli was born on April 8th, 2186 on the northern coast of Sicily, Italy. Before she was born, her parents had owned a genuine Sicilian restaurant just miles off from Moa Therma's, main AG-race track which didn't existed till the beginning of the 23rd century. The restaurant had survived the economic depression during the 2170's, and was still doing great business, owning the place for over 20 years. Her mother and father were the owners, followed by 7 employees working as the chefs or waiters/waitresses. Her Father was also a chef himself, serving his very own signature dishes to any customer that came by, while her mother waits them in. The parents also lived in the restaurant, owning an apartment right above them. When Liana was born however, the parents had less time on their hands to run their business in order to take care of their only child. As she got older though, she soon had to take responsibilities to help out her parents, and it almost became tiring.

    One trait about Liana was that she was a quick-working family employee. Whatever workplace she was in, cleaning dishes or cleaning tables, she would have it done in record time, keeping the business flowing. She also uses her trait when she went to middle school. Physically fit, she was involved in athletic sports like football (Soccer) or jogging. She was the fastest runner on the school team, following her way into high school, and during that time it was already passed into the 2200's. While Liana was still working at her family's restaurant, word came out that a new AG-track was being built in her town. She became aware of the AG-Racing league since the FX300 announcement in the mid 2190's and somehow, she was turned into a speed freak because of it. She was addicted to AG-Racing pastime; whenever it was on T.V. she didn't want to miss a second of it, even while working and probably why she would rush during her work time, but it doesn't explain while playing sports.

    Liana didn't feel satisfied about playing athletic sports, and was definitely not interested in working in the restaurant, which kind of disappointed her parents. She would say that after high school she wanted to become an AG-Pilot in order to feed her speed addiction. Her choice sounded obscure to her parents as it was the last thing they wanted to hear from her. They never had an interest about AG-racing, only interested in cooking. However, while seeing their only daughter going for a different path, they didn't want to be in the way of what she wanted to do, even if it meant not carrying on the family business. Liana apparently had other plans.

    In 2205, now at age 19, her parents would let her travel north to France to go into pilot training at the FEISAR European Training Academy. While there she had went through procedures and tests, passing them all in order to pilot a real racecraft. Being offered by a team however depended on her score. Teams like FEISAR and AG-Systems were the starting teams of the AGRL that would require average pilot experience to handle. On the other hand, teams like Piranha and Icaras required more proficient pilot experience; all teams don't have to be chosen by a pilot's origin country unless it's for dedication or success. Liana was just barely proficient and could choose to pilot the faster/heavier racecraft. In her standards, she would have gone for Piranha or Icaras, as they're the fastest teams in the racing league so far. But Liana wanted something that was at least durable and could withstand any punishment by the other teams. Her best choice would be Triakis Industries, completing her basic pilot training at the academy and transferring over to the team's training facility in Australia for intermediate flying.

    Triakis had a craft that was built for combat and speed despite a slight low top speed over the other two teams. The craft was really heavy however, lacking in handling including trust, but in some cases, their speed was quick on a straight line. Liana has made her choice, getting acceptance from the team in the facility as she was now ready to tryout the craft herself. The required speed class can be chosen if a pilot does have good reaction time when in Zone Mode, but if still in training, it was likely that those pilots would start on Vector or Venom class. Completing a zone trial during Triakis' training, Liana was eligible to go for Rapier, but was anxious at first, only to start on Venom. She had a whole lot of ground to race on when the team took their test flights to the Outback in central Australia. They set up ground on the flat/bush lands as Liana was able to test pilot their new Anne II craft, setting timed runs to test out their new builds at top speed while also getting feedback by their new pilots. She was awaiting orders for the go ahead until given the signal by a starting-light drone showing green. Shifting the thrust, Liana zooms off in the orange desert.

    Going around speeds over 250mph, Liana was now experiencing real speed for the first time. It felt so good to her, that she wanted to go faster, shifting to Flash now going over 300mph. That still wasn't enough for her as she now shifts to her recommended speed class, Rapier, going over 400mph. Once again it still doesn't satisfy her, still wanting to go faster. Liana already wanted to go over the required speed class; not ready to handle a craft at such speeds yet was given permission however to now tryout Phantom, only because she was racing out in the middle of nowhere. Wearing an oxygen mask now going just about 500mph, she was starting to enjoy it, but in a surprise, Liana still wanted to go faster. Her instructor and everyone around her looked at her like she was out of her mind. The type of speed she was going for was way out of the boundaries of racing on an actual course, unless it was in the world of Zone mode. However, Liana didn't care about turning the craft. She wanted to race straight forward, feeling the raw power of her test craft overall. This would now lead her to only be eligible in VX events of a certain league simply known as AG-Drag racing, though that still required more training by now using stage trusting on the race craft. Liana was willing to take another training level though, going for the VX division.

    VX400 backstory:

    VX events or AG-Drag racing are the most exciting but most dangerous events to compete in the VX400 branch of the FX400 Racing League. However, this event was a most recent installment. Piranha Advancments would be the first to experiment with the craft's afterburners which were activated on every team craft when going through speed pads or using turbo. Piranha would simply test out a new additive fuel system and a new turbo boost to keep generating the ship's top speed. The turbo charger boosts the craft for at least a second in order to have a quick jump of speed in combat or trial races. As for the super turbo, it will burn for five seconds longer. Though FEISAR had experimented with a similar method back in 2048 it only worked when going though speed pads, and still stayed under Super-Phantom class for the elite pilots at the time. But piranha's method was to use it with a super turbo boost to activate the craft's afterburners, keeping the fuel burning but exceeding over Phantom class to run at raw-power. This was an attempt to try and outrun their rivals from Icaras, but the super-turbo became illegal to use in the current race events. However, this would spark an inspiration of a new race type as other teams were using this same turbo charger and fuel for this league in progress. Not only was this tested out in the Nevada Tule desert, it was also tested on a constructed bay bridge in one of Makana's bay cities.

    In 2205, just weeks before the official FX350 league, an experiment was set out in Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia as Piranha was now testing their system full on for the first time. With the fuel being used, this test was unknown for the test pilots controlling the craft. It would launch out of the start quickly but normally. As it reached the point to activate the super turbo charge through the afterburners, it successfully combines with the main engine speed making the afterburners combine with the main thruster, but the alternative fuel was still pushing it. The ship was going beyond Phantom class speeds, even faster than a Super-Phantom class 2048 race craft going at least up to 1000mph and counting. It was reaching speeds faster than a normal fighter jet aircraft. While still going faster, something was going wrong with the craft's main engine. The type of fuel it used was becoming unstable, and in a panic, the pilot shuts off the engine and slams the airbrakes before anything went wrong. While inspection, the fuel almost turned the engine into a bomb. If kept going, the engine would have ruptured and exploded, killing the pilot instantly before the EPR would activate. The super turbo with the alternative fuel was too risky to use, now discovered when in high velocity. It became outlawed, but the teams still continued to use the old fuel for this race event, though it would never reach more than the speed of sound. No chances will be taken, yet the super turbo will still keep the ship fast enough to entertain spectators out there, and was now an official division for the FX League labeled VX. Specially built prototypes have been planned for these events years later, as these craft will be able to go over 1000mph in a straight line without the use of speed pads. Piranha also had that idea for a prototype craft that was only once used way back in 2048.

    Coming back to Liana, she still stayed in training for over a year, now testing on the bay bridge in Makana. Liana was ready to pilot Triakis' modified craft as the engines were now set in stages, only by shifting them at the right moments will improve her run time. To gain a launching start, her craft was attached to a magnetic catapult at the starting line. When the race starts on go, it will release the craft, but she had to launch at the right moment in order to have a perfect start. She now starts on go, launching off the start already at Phantom class speeds. At a certain moment, she would activate the second stage thrusters continuing to go faster now over 700mph, yet it still wasn't enough to break the sound barrier, slowing down right at the end 10 seconds later. It wasn't her best run, but Liana felt ready to race for the FX400 League, only competing in the VX division for a few years first.

    In 2207, right after the opening of the FX400 Racing League, Liana would take her first Drag race back at the Makana bay bridge. Still under construction from top, the bridge was open to crossover for both public and AG-racing. Her contenders were still new to this event, but Liana was one of them. However, now racing against Piranha and Icaras, it was now a new challenge as the two teams are able to gain a more top speed in these events. Still, her team would barely make it to the top 5 of this event overall, ranked 5th followed by Auricom at 4th. The four teams would hold a rivalry for this race type as Liana was also forming rivalries with the team's best Speed pilots. Piranha's Thiago Castillo, Icaras' Edgar Lawrence, and Van Uber's Udo Von Falken, all of which were competing in regular events of the FX400 Racing League. Liana felt like she was overmatched by the two experienced male pilots, not to mention that she's the only female pilot to enter the VX League unless counting Zamora Aguilera from Goteki 45. In every speed tournament she entered, it was always possible that she'll go up against one of the two pilots in the semi-finals, sometimes not even making it to the actual finals losing to one another. In her mind, "Are these pilots out of my league?"

    Liana didn't care too much about winning however, but she just couldn't match her rivals speed. Liana didn't seem to change stages quite accurately during her races and was still training herself to activate them at the right moments. When she came back to the Outback In closed seasons, she had put most of her time practicing than anything else she had done while there, beating her own lap times in order to improve her speed. Using a timer on her ship, she tried to mark down points as accurately as possible, calculating her seconds. After all, she was an honor student in mathematics during high school. After a few months of practicing before the next season, Liana seemed to have had a breakthrough, and deserved to have a well break from the sport.

    During raceday visits to Moa Therma, her home city, Liana will choose to visit her parents back at her family's restaurant. Two years after she had left, nothing has changed in the family business. Her parents were still doing successful without her, but even so, they had missed her very much. After a day visit, she was craving for one of her father's dishes, having her last meal there for now. It was free of charge for being part of the family, but she decided to pay for her food anyway. Saying goodbye one last time, she was then off in the air again with Triakis, heading back to Makana for another VX tournament.

    It was now the beginning of 2208, and Liana was feeling confident for this year's Speed tournament taking place back at the Makana Bay Bridge. She only cared about getting the fastest time than her two opponents. Two out of three rounds with one opponent and moving on was only the main focus to her, and to join with her main competition. She would make it to the semi-finals up against Edger from Icaras. After the first two rounds, she already beats him by a split second across the line, realizing her math was accurately matching with the speed of her opponent. She now moves on to the finals now up against Von Falken from Van Uber. Both pilots were nervous to their throats; Von Falken had a streak of wins on this race type, while Liana had losses. She wanted to win and break her opponent's streak, including breaking the Speed champion's speed record. On the last race, Von Falken had won the first round leaving only one more to count. Liana kept focused, staring across the 5mi bridge in front of her. On the start of go, the pilots would blaze off through the straight.

    Liana only had a certain time to activate the afterburners. Her craft had started perfectly from the start and was gaining a good amount of trust. There was a certain moment when the craft would not gain acceleration and Liana had to time it just right in order to keep her craft's speed up without slowing down or keep moving at the same speed. Von Falken would activate his turbo quite early, but Liana was being patient. She would activate the turbo on her calculated time and speed, barely passing Von Falken as his afterburners had already burned out, just a split second in front of him taking first place. She would end up beating his record speed on the track, feeling the happiest about that achievement.

    Liana would unfortunately lose the tournament on the third round against The Falken, but despite her loss, her opponent would show respect for her determination as well as beating his speed record overall. She had kept her technique for other Speed events in the future, holding fast record times and to achieve being the fastest female VX pilot in the world. However, she then got bored of going on straight lines, and would decide to race for the Regular FX400 events on actual circuits. Ironically, she wasn't more skillful on these events than her usual, due to the heavy handling of the craft. Liana would be one of the pilots to cross the line on the mid or sometimes in last place. The team of Triakis wouldn't recommend her to compete in these races officially unless she took time to practice on them. Instead they would bring in her lead pilot for these events named Xavier Chaffin from Australia, highly skilled with the Triakis craft to take on the technical circuits, and was a veteran to the team overall.

    Xavier was more of a dedicated pilot for Triakis than Liana. While meeting her for the first time, he didn't have much respect for her. Instead he would disregard her from the track and tries to finish the race for himself, or taking along 2rd veteran pilot Matilda Rotthier, only to take on a grudge with Triakis's rival team, AG-Systems. Liana however didn't care too much about the teams opposing each other, but she wanted to compete skillfully in the normal tournaments as fast as possible. Unfortunately, during practice on the AG circuits, her record speed would be broken again by her personal rival, Von Falken.

    For four years, Liana would race in the standard events of the FX400 League. While gaining more experience on the tracks in general, her experience going straight never fades away, still winning more races on her main events in the VX League. She was now 26yrs old and was already a well experienced pilot for the AGRL, racing now on Phantom class speeds. Surprisingly though, Liana would become chosen from Triakis to compete in the All-Star Championships in 2211, racing with the elite pilots from every team. Their last ASC pilot, Vincent Stephenson, would not feel happy of being replace, thinking Liana was mediocre at best and unable to win any championship by her skill level compared to his. Triakis team Principal, Samuel McNaughton, saw potential on her however during her progress in standard events as well as complimenting her for her achievement in the VX League. He would offer her even more pilot training to match up with the elites before the championship, wanting Vincent to train her. However, Vincent refuses, thinking of himself and possibly still sour over the disqualification back in 2206. Liana was instead introduced to their other best pilot, Buster Harding, gladly to help her out for the upcoming ASC. The two would somewhat have a good student/teacher relationship in training, only for both to be physically in shape, complimenting and sharing their workout styles in the process. Though she was limited in her English speaking, she understood the techniques said and given to her. Harding would push her, but in the end, they would both agree on a fairly well training day's work. Just after a few months, Liana was ready once again to take on the elite class including earning the rank herself. This would also be the last time Liana will ever see Buster, going back to his squad after the training was completed. As for her, she breaks away from her squad, even though veteran pilots, Xavier and Matilda didn't need her. Liana would become Triakis' next best pilot, as she enters in the ASC for a whole 4 years.

    Liana was still an elite pilot in Speed event races, taking the Anne III craft beyond its limits once more. For herself, Liana buys a replica Pir-Hana prototype racecraft from the A.G.R.C. era. With this craft, she was more than a faster opponent, but the fastest to ever catch up with. In control of what was once the most ridiculous ship to fly on city streets now becomes the ideal craft for Speed/Drag events of this current generation. The ship was thinned out, and stripped away its stirring rack and acceleration module, only to instead turn by using the airbrakes. Pilots hated this craft back then, but Liana loved it for her race type, now going 1000mph on nothing but straight track. However, she doesn't use it in the VX league, as it was obviously not eligible. Overall she didn't care about what team she was on, or how much she got paid in racing, but rather just loves what she likes doing best. She had a lot ahead of her, but unfortunately, an accidents in the ASC would cost her career in AG-Racing.

    During the 2214 All-Star Championships in Metropia (Kyoto Japan), Liana would suffer a neck injury from a turbo accident during the first lap of the race while being pinned back by another AG-pilot. Trying to get ahead, she uses her activated turbo, but misjudges her move over a bump on the track and slams into a track-side arch causing her injury. She manages to finish the race, but comes in sixth place out of the 12 competing pilots. Liana was immediately put on a stretcher after she was taken out of her cockpit, suffering also paralysis on her legs and fingers. Fortunately, her injuries weren't too severe despite a fatal looking collision, but she was taken out of the championships only to be concerned if she will be able to finish the championships for her team. What saved her was an exoskeleton fitted on the restraint in the cockpit, installed by Triakis as a safety mechanism for their pilots in case of heavy collisions. (This exoskeleton will soon be installed for all team AG-craft restraints as a precaution for future pilots) With the advance treatment and surgery to repair her ligaments including some neck strain, it would possibly take her a few weeks to recover, not being able to race till either the end of the season or not at all, worrying her. Liana was sent back home in Sicily to be taken care of by her family. Getting feedback from the championships however, the next race in Tech Da Ra was put on halt for less than a week, only for Liana to be replaced later by Austrian, Clara Mandel, hoping someday she will come back for the coming FX500 inaugural season, including the VX Division. Liana's craft however was surprisingly not too damaged from the sidetrack arch impact during her last race, taken back to Triakis HQ in Australia for upgrades and stored away in hopes that she'll come back for the new season.

    Liana would be out of it until the 11th race of the 2214 ASC, however, as medical staff came to her with diagnostics, they recommend that she should not race again in the extent of her neck injury as she showed highly strained neck muscles which could end up more severe if she were to get knocked around some more in future races. Though her ligaments were repaired, the risks was too high for her as the commission itself agreed she should stop in the worry of a possible fatality in the future. Liana couldn't bear to hear her unfortunate news, even continuing to say that she felt fine and wanted to continue. Despite her continuous disagreements, Liana had no other choice, almost crying about her premature retirement. She would announce her official retirement during a small conference a few days after the 10th race, however she was not gonna leave the 2214 ASC just yet.

    During her interview at the conference with Triakis, Liana would make her statement to her fans that she will no longer continue racing in the FX400, including the newly announce FX500 league in 2215. She showed her sorrow and disappointed to everyone listening, but even though she was about to retire right there, she makes one more statement for everyone. "I'm not gonna have some injury keep me from leaving the ASC. No matter who tells me otherwise I will not go down this way for my fans nor let my competitors pass me this easily. If I can race, I'll race. I'm not leaving without at least one win! I will finish this championship, and I will finish with glory! To all my opponents I'll promise you this. You're not gonna outrun the fastest woman on Earth just yet. For this next race at Sol 2, I'm gonna take that win!"

    And so, the next round of the 2214 ASC commences. Liana succeeds in her promise, winning the 11th round of the championship. Completing it overall, she comes in 6th place of the 2214 ASC, but her last race was all that counted. She was cheered on by her fans on the way out of the closing season, and leaves Makana for the last time, keeping her pilot uniform and helmet. Overall, she has earned 19 medals during her 6 seasons of the FX400 league including the VX division. (11G/4S/4B) Heading back to Sicily now living on her own, she still visits her family's restaurant every once in a while, only to see that business was more busy than usual. Liana was a national celebrity after her final season, only to bring attention to her family's business and getting notice by almost everyone who ate there. She may had retired from racing too soon, but it didn't mean she could stop piloting AG-craft. Till this day in 2217, she could still be seen flying her own craft (Not Piranha craft) out on Moa Therma's AG-track from time to time.
