Larry is a tall man, about 6'3“, with blonde-ish hair and blue eyes. He is slim, as most pilots need to be, and has a slightly athletic build. He weighs about 150 pounds.
Larry is a relatively friendly man, reffering to those he regards highly as 'buddy'. On the battlefield, he is a pragmatist. His MO is to do what he needs to complete a mission, but no more and no less, and views targeting non-mission-critical enemies as both a waste of time and of life.
Unlike many natural-born aces, Larry had to work for years to achieve the level of skill that he has. Because of this he is far more aware of his capabilites and limitations than rookies, even prodigies, usually are.
Larry grew up on a Nepleslian world bordering the Abwehran Star Empire. Some time before he was born, his parents changed their name to a word they liked in the language of their “neighbors”. Falke, or falcon, was the new family name. Less than a year after that, Larry was born. His childhood was fairly normal, and because of the proximity to the border, one school program resulted in Larry having a pen-pal in the Abwehran Star Empire. Because he and his family lived on a border, military aircraft were a common sight. This sparked Larry's love for aircraft early, and later on in his life he lied about his age to enlist early in the Nepleslian Star Navy, which was accepting anyone they could get once it towards the end of the ongoing 2nd Mishhuvurthyar war.
The entire process of training was truncated, as the NSN needed personnel, and the depletion was personnel was great enough to let green recruits fly off without very much training except for how to get their fighters in the air. Most recruits, including Larry, were thrust onto the battlefield unprepared. His initial enthusiasm was curbed quickly as the romanticized image of fighter jocks that he'd had was shattered by the quick deaths of many of his comrades on the battlefield. Despite this, against all odds, Larry survived until the end of the war, making a name for himself with his erratic and unpredictable maneuvering, which earned him the nickname of “Pixy”.
After the war, Larry was assigned, much to his dismay, the testing department. For most of the time he was there, he tested new craft that were in development. While Larry found this fairly boring, there were frequent live-fire exercises against other pilots, who were usually more combat tested than he was, and in these, he excelled. During one exercise, the wing was shot off of by fire from his enemies, and he managed to keep his craft in the air and maneuver just well enough to take down the pilot who had shot his wing off1) before he limped back to base with his aircraft.
Larry was one of the experimental pilots who tested the Na-YF/A-6X(A) "Scythe" Stealth Fighter/Interceptor before it was sent off to Aquila Flight for final testing, and after that he was decided on as the main test pilot for the Na-F/A-6(b) "Sabre" Multirole Fighter/interceptor, and for several years tested various features, aerodynamic performance, and combat capabilities. As a test pilot, he contributed to the overall design of the craft through his feedback to the engineers, and soon the Sabre was ready for its trial by fire. Along with the Sabre, Larry was sent to Aquila flight.
