Name : Burkhard Harlock
Age: Unknown, but is suspected to be about 100
Personality : Very quiet, anti-social, doesn't let anyone get too close. Is one hell of a fighter, if anyone is stupid enough to try to corner him.
Backstory : When the military started sending up its' ships a century before the Arcadia set sail, a young man joined up, so he could escape from his home. Yet even while he was in the Sea of Stars, there was danger; the ship he was on was attacked, and most of the crew was captured by the aliens behind the attack (those of whom would later be known as the Illumidas). The experimentation and torture he endured before escaping was enough to turn his hair white, and it stopped his aging process. Now he wanders on the fringe of the Machine Empire's reach, in an old ship, with a crew of men who had also survived what he had.
