Age & Date of Birth 13/1/2001
Previous Station: Nerv 2nd branch, Area 51
Appearance: Standing Average for his age in height, he is well built with tanned skin, roughly cut black hair and dark blue eyes. He has numerous scars across his body and calloused hands. He likes to wear layered clothing so he can conceal small defensive armaments on his person.
Suit Colours:A primarily white suit with black highlights. There are touches of the colours red, blue, green and brown striped across the shoulders.
-- Designation: “Astraea” (Experimental type Unit.04)
-- Spirit: A portion of Gale’s soul.
-- Descent: Lilith
-- Technical Specifications:
Armour type E: A set of outer armour designed solely for the purpose of channelling the electromagnetic projectors to their intended goals without damaging the Eva or it’s systems.
Variable Ego Signal Plating Architecture: Due to the strong link between pilot and Eva and Gale’s own mental instability, portions of the Eva would change colour in response to his mind-set. Since this discovery technician at Area 51 have analysed and refined this into its design in order to easily monitor pilot mood shifts and provide the relevant tactical information based on rapidly altered battle style.
Right arm mounted electromagnetic rail driver: An experimental weapon that has the kick of a rail gun but is designed to be used in close quarters. Typically closed up it resembles a triangle or shield like device. Could technically be used at range and is armed with three preloaded nails.
Left arm mounted weapons case: Appearing to be another arm mounted shield, it is actually a device used to store Extra nails and either a pair of standard issue progressive knives, or more commonly…
Cable-linked Electroshock generators: Cutely named “Taser-chucks” by the design staff of 51, the CLEG weapon is designed for maximum pacification. With far more voltage than is survivable by human standards the weapon was designed in hopes of capturing more angels for study. THe Cable is also used to regulate and share power between the to so one of the devices getting damaged will not disable it. Theoretically it could be used to incapacitate another Eva without damage but would almost certainly kill the other pilot.
Twin Connectable Pylon stored Progressive blades: in each pylon is stored a large blade weapon, each only slightly smaller than the pylon itself. The weapons can be wielded separately or combined to form a single dual ended weapon. They are progressive weapons but the added weight and slight curve to them gives them added cutting capacity. Additionally the edges themselves can be superheated with an electrical charge for further cutting capacity.
Electromagnetic storage pylons/projectors: The pylons are hollower than those of other Evas due to their storage role but still retain enough connective functions to be used for docking and launch procedures. When unlocked, the sections fan out and fold back creating a small wing like shape on each shoulder. In this state they can be used to channel electrical charges through the arms to Enhanced the progressive blades, or (Though highly unadvised) increase the charge on the rail driver.
Type MM-103 Heavy machine gun: A large twin barrelled machine gun. It was designed to fire larger more potent rounds than that of the average pallet rifle, and the two barrels were used to compensate for any loss of fire rate this ammo change might have caused. It is compatible for all Eva types but was designed for Gale particularly.
-- Design: A White Eva, it’s highlights change depending on Gale’s demeanour between Red, Blue, Green, and Brown; when offline the panels are all black. Its head is a dual horned and is very angular, it’s Eye covered by a visor in the shape of a ‘T’ across its face. The Visor is always silver so the eyes aren’t visible though presumably they shift colour as well.
Background: Gale’s parents were relief workers in Africa when Second impact accoutred and things began to get beyond hectic. The sudden outbreak of wars and civil strife worldwide prevented the couple from leaving and Gale was eventually born there. With the signing of the Valentine treaty however things started to settle down somewhat and the new parents resumed their work with fervour as the strife had increased their workload quite a bit. In early 2005 they were killed in a raid by external military forces trying to cease remnant insurgent factions in the area and Gale was left alone.
After only a few months Gale had been handed around several people having no other family that anyone new of until he eventually fell into the hands of a local warlord and spent the next 6 years of his life learning to fight, kill and survive. It was during these years where he was given the name “Bomani” that Gale developed a number of his current skills, including his hobby of vehicle maintenance.
After actions taken by the UN, Gale found himself nearly killed in the following bombings but was rescued by a man named Dallas Walker, who went on to take the ten year old out of the warzone. After a few months of digging he found out Gale’s history and adopted him, though it is still unknown whether this was kindness or guilt having been in charge of the bombings.
Within the Year Dallas was called to help establish the second Nerv branch after the organization Gehirn was reformatted. It was during this time, after Dallas made the mistake of bringing Gale along with him as the child’s lacking social ability meant he couldn’t be left with a sitter without concern that he came in contact with the Experimental Type Evangelion during early testing phases. There was a huge amount of chaos and confusion as the scheduled contact experiment that had been set up had gone off prematurely. After it was discovered that Gale had come out seemingly intact there was confusion as to what had happened.
Then it became clear he was far from fine, as he began talking to himself, hallucinations of odd fairy like companions floating around him. His personality would occasionally shift from one mind-set to another, and his ability to reason was somewhat damaged making any hopes of integration into society again implausible. However he was also compatible with The Eva and so plans to make him a pilot were put into motion.
Due to growing up as he did he was an excellent choice as a combat pilot, so the Area 51 staff took to ignoring the rather obvious problems with Gale’s mind. It’s partly due to Gale’s broken persona that Astraea, unit 04 has remained classed as an experimental type.
