From the journals of Dax Northender

Position: Pilot
Age: 42
Nationality: American
Birthplace: Jersey City, NJ
Code Designation: 6 o'clock

I've known Ace for a long time. We have a similar taste for adventure, but I'd say the similarities end there. Ace is a rogue and a playboy, constantly chasing fame, women and whiskey. He is egotistical, brash, and prone to follow his heart rather than reason...which is exactly why everyone loves him. Ace has lived on the edge his entire life, and rarely have I come across a more boyishly charismatic scoundrel. It should therefore surprise no one to learn that Ace is a pilot.

He flew during the Great War, and tallied over 50 enemy kills. He even survived a one-on-one dogfight with the Red Baron. His post-war exploits put him in the employ of Howard Hughes, and together, the two built a remarkable prototype fighter plane capable of vertical take-off and landing. Ace, then of course stole it, and still flies it to this day. He's named it "The Jersey Devil."

The man is a crack shot with his Walter P-38, one of the most amazing aerial acrobats I've ever seen, and falls in love with the woman of his dreams at least once a week. If nothing else, Ace keeps us lively.
