Character Description: Mark

Ken is the quintessential hero, fighting the battle of good vs. evil not because he wants to, but because it has to be done. Although eager in the beginning of the series, he soon starts growing cynical after the death of his father. He is a highly capable pilot, taking after his father, and handles himself expertly in the occasional dogfight.

Raised by Doctor Nambu since he was eight, Ken has grown up training for his position, and has known his friends for many years. He and Joe are as close as brothers (and argue like brothers, as well), and his feelings for Jun eventually begin to show after the end of the first series (although not much). He cares deeply for all his friends and would rather risk his own life than allow anything to befall them, although he realizes the benefits of teamwork and respects everyone's role in the team (until Gatchaman Fighter, when his growing bitterness causes him to become more reckless in the fight against Galactor).
