Character Description: Lt. Commander Vanderkam

Lt. Commander Vanderkam strikes a very imposing figure. A burly, muscular man with a purple 'X' tattooed on his face, he can be a brutal taskmaster and strict disciplinarian if he needed to be. He was onboard the Woglinde and its armada when they encountered the twelfth Zohar Emulator in space on the way to Second Miltia (the fleet was transporting KOS-MOS to that planet). Vanderkam was with the recovery team when one of the group touched the Emulator – and was killed when the Emulator drew him within its form! He even chased-out Shion Uzuki from the Emulator when she encountered the mysterious being Nephilim in front of it.

Secretly, however, Vanderkam is in fact a double agent for the U-TIC organization, along with his superior officer, Woglinde first officer Andrew Cherenkov, and planned to spirit away the Emulator with Cherenkov before the fleet encountered a fleet of Gnosis, as warned by Commander Margulis five hours before. However, when the attack occurred, Cherenkov ordered Vanderkam and others with U-TIC to abandon the ship while he prepared the Emulator for transport. Vanderkam and the others survived, while Cherenkov was killed by the Gnosis.
