    A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
    -------------------------------------------
      This FAQ is only for the Character Backgrounds and so. So if anybody have
    anything to add, please do so. Otherwise... do not bother.

    -----
    Name: Sol Badguy
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Solid information on this subject's history is, regrettably, still hard to
    come by. Here is what we know. After joining the Sacred Order of Holy Knights
    in 2172, he deserted and became a bounty hunter. One account places the subject
    in the year 2099 -- exactly as he looks today -- participating in the Gear
    Project. Though his motives are unknown, he has been spotted hunting down and
    destroying Gears. His victory over Justice should serve as ample evidence of
    his superhuman battle ability. His occult powers easily surpass all known
    limits. Because of his muddy past and immense power, he is considered to be
    incredibly dangerous.

    Name: Ky Kiske
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Former leader of the Sacred Order of Holy Knights, this charismatic swordsman
    is now a head figure in the international Police Force. Though fearsome as an
    enemy, his sense of duty to the law makes him easily controllable. Subject is
    being used as the base type for our Imitation Series. The completion of this
    project will be a boon to our war potential. His political power makes him a
    valid threat.
    
    Risk Rating: B

    -----
    Name: May
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject works directly under Johnny as a member of the Jellyfish air pirates.
    She wields a ship's anchor as a weapon. Her complete devotion to Johnny will
    make her easy to control, should the need arise. Although her birthplace is
    unknown, avidence suggests that she is of Japanese descent. We are currently
    seeking confimation on this matter. While not paricularly dangours by herself,
    the thought of a powerful organization like the Jellyfish Pirates holding a
    Japanese woman is rather disturbing.
    
    Risk Rating: A
    
    =======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Millia Rage
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Formerly a hired assassin, the subject is now working with the IPF to
    dismantle the Guild and capture Zato-One in exchange for her acqittal. The test
    case for an undisclosed new form of occult art, she uses her hair as a weapon.
    It is believed her hair falls under the same classification as Gears and
    Forbidden Beasts. She can be easily controlled if her desire for revenge
    against Zato is used against her. Although she is not a major threat, her
    capture and dissction will offer insight into the forces that drive her hair.
    
    Risk Rating: C
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Zato-1 (Eddie)
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      A former assassin, the subject was implanted with a Forbidden Beast in order
    to measure his abilities. The Beast is a type of parasitic animal built from
    Gear technology, which allows it to partially exsit away from the body. With
    the Beast's power, he became the head of the Assassins' Guild, eventually
    disappearing after the first Sacred Knights tournament. Although the subject
    has yet to be recovered, we have succeeded in retrieving the Beast's Data. The
    subject has either passed away or had his mind by the Beast. In either case, as
    the Beast's lifespan is inherently limited. Thanks to the subject's
    disappearance, the Assassins' Guild has lost much of its power. Therefore, he
    is not considered dangours.
    
    Risk Rating: C
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Potemkin
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Former slave to the empire of Zepp, subject was the vanguard of the Zepp
    revolution, and currently works for the new government. With his giant frame
    and mastery of Zeppian combat, his sheer battle power is comparable to that of
    an entire ground-based army division. However, as an officer of Zepp, he can be
    easily diverted due to his loyalties toward his country. The real danger lies
    in his ties with Gabriel, Zepp's current president. With this in mind, he is
    considered to be a moderate threat.
    
    Risk Rating: B
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Chipp Zanuff
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Born as an orphan, subject grew up to become an illegal drug trafficker and
    narcotics addict. He was saved by a man named Tsuyoshi, who taught him the
    basics of Ninjutsu combat. Subject is the only known man alive who still uses
    Japanese form of attack. He also uses the force of Ki is his moves, presumably
    taught to him by Tsuyoshi as well. It is safe to assume that the subject has
    had extensive training with Ki force. If we can procure this fighting style for
    our own use, the benefits would be immeasurable. Although a highly skilled
    fighter, subject is a very straightforward man who has little in the way of
    mental defenses. A swift capture is highly recommended. He is considered to be
    moderately dangerous.
    
    Risk Rating: B
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Faust
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Recently-divulged information has led to a renewed interest in this subject,
    a well-known rogue physician. Using his skills in medicine, the subject can
    change bodily shape and even engage in teleportation and other occult arts. His
    skills remind us of a certain project of ours that ended in failure. In our
    hunch correct, then the subject's capture is a matter of great urgency.
    Otherwise, he shouldn't pose too much of a threat.
    
    Risk Rating: B
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Baiken
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject is a Japanese woman on the run from the authorities. She is still
    deeply traumatized from the loss of her parents during the war. All of her
    movements revolve around her ultimate goal of revenge. Her current target is
    the one she regards as the creator of the Gears. Although her skill with a
    Japanese sword is great, she is no match for our military might. Additionally,
    her desire for revenge makes her easy to control. Even if she manages to find
    the Gears' creator, it would only help our mission. She should be viewed as a
    serious threat.
    
    Risk Rating: C
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Jam Kuradoberi
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Though she is a chef, subject is one of the world's most proficient wielders
    of Ki force. Of the five occult arts, the field of "Ki" energy is the least
    explored and understood. Most of its users are of Eastern descent, aiding the
    theory that heredity plays a role. Subject's life goal is to discover new and
    useful cuisines. Control will not be an issue. Although she poses little threat
    is and of herself, her capture is still desireable. Therefore, she should not
    be taken lightly.
    
    Risk Rating: C
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Johnny
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject is the leader of the Jellyfish air pirates, and a key underworld
    figure. His mastery of Japanese swordfighting makes him extremely dangours in
    one-on-one combat. His true power, however, lies in his personal ties with
    Zepp's president Gabriel and the IPF's Ky Kiske. It is highly likely that the
    Jellyfish are far more than a mere gang of thugs. A self-styled noble bandit,
    he always tries to help those less fortunate. Capturing a hostage may be the
    best way to control his actions. His overall clout makes him a major threat.
    
    Risk Rating: A
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Axl Low
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject claims to have jumped into this era from the 20th century. Although
    his claim is unsubstantiated, he is confirmed to carry certain vital
    information on past events. His skill with fire helped him earn a spot in the
    second Sacred Knight tournament. Considering his high physical strength and the
    danger his unfettered knowledge with extreme caution.
    
    Risk Rating: A+
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Anji Mito
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject is an escaped Japanese who has been evading arrest with the help of
    the Zessen fan weapon he somehow acquired along the way. A man of pure Japanese
    descent, his dance-like moves are like poetry in motion. Although his motives
    are unclear, it is believed he is searching out the Gears and their creator --
    not out of spite, but out of sheer curiosity. Regardless of his intentions, the
    danger of leaving a Japanese man unattended is profound. As such, he is to be
    viewed as a major threat.
    
    Risk Rating: A
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Venom
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject became the top-ranking official in the Assassins' Guild after Zato's
    disappearance. He leaves most Guild work to his subordinates. His fighting
    style, using a pool cue and ball as its main components, makes use of multiple
    object not normally treated as weapons -- a trademark of his assassin
    unbringing. While lacking in close-combat expertise, his skills as an assassin
    are top-notch. But his loyalty towards Zato makes him easily malleable. As the
    leader of one of the world's most influential guild, he poses considerable
    risk.
    
    Risk Rating: B
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Testament
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      One of the few humanoid Gears, and one of the few Gears to retain a sense of
    self after Gear cell-grafting process. He became an enemy of the human race
    after aligning with Justice. Subject organized the first Sacred Knights
    tournament in an attempt to revive Justice. Currently, he is still evading
    capture. One account mentions a link with Commander Gear Dizzy, but this has
    yet to be confirmed. His pure hatred of man and incalculable power make him one
    of the most dangours living beings on Earth at the present time. He should be
    viewed as a major threat.
    
    Risk Rating: S
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Dizzy
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Though her identity is unknown, sources say this subject is a mix of both
    human and Gear. All known Gears, including Testament were subordinates under
    the control Commander Gear Justice. As a result, most of the Gears ceased
    functioning after Justice was slain in battle. This one, however, was not
    effected, possibly due to her genetic makeup. In fact, she may have the ability
    to actually reawaken downed Gears. Eyewitness accounts place her as working
    together with the humanoid Gear, Testament. One report says the subject was
    recently destroyed by the bounty hunter, Jam, but this may be a fabrication of
    events. If she is still alive, her quick capture and disposal take precedence
    over all matters.
    
    Risk Rating: S++
    
    ======================================================
    
    -----
    Name: Slayer
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Subject is an entirely different form of life, completely inapplicable to any
    previously known categories. Neither Human nor Gear in origin, his DNA
    structure bears no relation at all to anything currently on record. It is
    unknown how many other beings like this one are in existence, and whether or
    not they have any relation to the human race. Besides his name (Slayer), all we
    know about the man is that he founded the Assassins' Guild. His battle
    abilities and combat style have no known method of supperssion, making him an
    unmatched threat of the highest caliber.

    Name: Zappa
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      The so-called "vengeful spirit" that this subject carries has yet to be
    confirmed, but has been spotted by several eyewitnesses. theories abound on its
    origin. Some say it is the embodiment of someone's innermost thoughts; others
    say it's a prewar experimental weapon. Regardless, the subject is confirmed to
    have an extremely rare form of mind parasite. If captured, the insights his
    body could bring to mental weaponry could be useful. However, his motives
    see-saw between his own desires and those of his parasite. As such, he should
    be approached with caution.
    
    Risk Rating: B+
    
    ======================================================

    Name: Bridget
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      Normally, we would not even bother with such a simple bounty hunter. However,
    this one bears mention because of his multi-millionaire father and the fact
    that he is currently searching for a Commander Gear. While Commander Gear Dizzy
    is thought to be dead, this account has certain flaws which we have pointed out
    in a previous report. Any information on the fate Dizzy that the subject may
    contain could be indispensible. Due to an issue involving twins, the subject (a
    man) was raised as a woman by his family. He could be brought to our side via
    relatives. Using a yo-yo as his weapon, he has fair skills as a bounty hunter,
    but nothing worthy of special mention. His threat is minimal.
    
    Risk Rating: D

    Name: Justice
    -----
    
    -----------
    Background:
    -----------
    
      A fully sentient Gear, and the instigator of the holy war between Gears and
    Humans. Most Gears are programmed to destroy everything in their path. Some
    humanoid Gears, though, can acqire the ability to reason. In addition to its
    sentience, Justice held the power to control every Gear in existence, no matter
    their origin. This made Justice the only "complete" Gear man has ever created.
    Sealed in another dimension, it managed to escape but was soon destroyed by Sol
    Badguy. As such, a risk assessment is unnecessary.
