BACKGROUND
Among the annals of escort pilots, none is more mysterious than the feared Orpheus. Contactable only by anonymous mail link, this pilot's name, appearance, even gender, are unknown. His (her?) coolness in combat is famed, his flying of incredible precision and his aim unerring. His combat style is in line with all great aces - attacking from the blind spots above, below, and behind. His only failing is his loyalty - if he thinks a battle unwinnable, he will just quietly slip away, although instances of this happening are rare.
