Background/History: Isamu is a U.N. Spacy fighter pilot that spent most of his formative years on the planet Eden with friends Guld Goa Bowman and Myung Fang Lone. The three were nearly inseparable, until one day a serious incident broke up their friendship.
When school was finished, Isamu left Eden not only to become a pilot, but because he didn't know how to confront the problem that drove his best friend away.
Many years later, after a checkered period as a military fighter pilot, he so happened to be shipped back to Eden to become a test pilot for an experimental craft called the YF-19 as a form of "punishment" (yet grounding one as skilled as Isamu wasn't really an option).
Upon arrival, he finds that his former friend Guld is also a test pilot, only, he is representing the YF-21. Also, the presence of Myung, who is now a producer for a singing AI, further complicates matters…
And so, the story of Macross Plus begins.
Personality/Motivation: With an impulsive and reckless attitude that never seemed to fade past adolescence, Isamu just seems to coast through life and take things as they come to him, with a sharp wit and sharper reflexes. He has a long time love of flight and vehicles in general. Equally as strong is his passion of exploring: he just has to see what's around the next corner...even if it could hurt him.
Quote: "Get me up in the air, and I'll heal just fine."
Powers/Tactics: Fairly straightforward in a dogfight, Isamu will take the most direct approach with fancy maneuvers thrown in for good measure. Should his opponent be equally or more skilled, he falls back to complex defensive aerobatics until he can out-think or feint them. He sometimes lacks finesse (especially where other lives are at stake) when he is trying to achieve his objectives, yet can go great things if pushed enough.
In a fist fight, he is not especially likely to give anyone with a modicum of training any trouble, but does make up for lack of experience with tenacity.
Appearance: Isamu is a Caucasian male of about seven feet in height, with brown hair, dark blue eyes and very long legs developed from a significant amount of time in zero gravity.
Designer's Notes: This build represents Mr. Dyson just prior to the end of Macross Plus in that he still has his Rivalry with Guld.
To be honest, there was not much I could expand upon, as he is part of a four episode series that did not focus entirely on him. In any case, he, or a variation of him, could fill in as a capable "Maverick" style pilot in a futuristic campaign with advanced fighter technology.
