Eugene Griffon is an commander in the Alliance of Nations and veteran in the Great Aerial Battle of Tordas in the First War. Griffon began his career in the Air Force as a drone operator in the early 21st century. As such, he never felt the tension and anxiousness of putting one's own life on the line but his outstanding abilities didn't go unnoticed as the importance of unmanned weapon systems in modern warfare grew exponentially along with the American people's unwillingness to get too deeply involved in foreign backwater conflicts in the following years. It was a time of opportunity for him, who was generally seen as reliable and methodical at his job, but cold and - as many of his detractors would say - technocratic on a personal level. Indeed, Griffon always had absolute faith in the supremacy of the AAF, even over the other branches, and cared very little for those that were on the receiving end of his airstrikes, as he thought of them as nothing more than vaguely humanoid blips on an IR screen.
