Physical Description

Tall and lean with a swimmer's build, Argyle looks like the sort of guy who could run for miles and barely break a sweat - if he could get over his love for pristine streetwear.

His metallic blue hair and eyes are accented by his usual choice of gold-framed glasses and carefully chosen clothing. A metallic pattern on his left cheek, somewhere between a wing and a circuit board, its golden etchings slowly traced by light, is the only obvious signs of his Operator origin. His horns are short and typically lost in the carefully-tousled hair on the top of his head.

Despite the care he puts in his presentation, Argyle is not truly vain and does not stress if a hair is out of place or if someone doesn't like the way he looks. He simply cares about how he presents himself (and his not-so-secret love of fabrics, finishes, and fashion in general). A beautiful pattern, a delicate cut, a precise shot, and so on all factor into the overall persona that he crafts every day.

Like a master clothier, he seeks to be someone who makes things look so easy that they seem effortless.


Argyle is cool and collected, but not above making light jokes and enjoying himself. He enjoys reading in his off time, particularly comics and lighthearted stories.

At his core, he understands and has come to terms with the fact that he was built to fulfill a role. As with others of his kind, being effective and contributing in that role is deeply important to him. To that end, he strives for perfection in whatever it is that he is doing and is mature enough to value constant self improvement. Argyle enjoys friendly competition as a way to hone his skills and that of others around him.


Cohort 33 was a particularly competitive one, but the spirit involved in that competition was a good one. Rivalries formed and big personalities shined; one mental model, despite his high scores in practical tests, had a more reserved personality. Others in his group suggested he take on a name that suited his personality, like โ€œIcemanโ€ or other well-known pilot callsigns of its ilk.

The mental model didn't want anything so bombastic. When he wasn't piloting or taking classes, he spent his free time reading books and trying to learn more about the world in the real. He soon developed a love for fabrics. They were something starkly different from the pristine environment that the models were raised in. Each fabric had a history and had been made to fit someone's ideal aesthetic. The idea resonated with him then, and now, and he chose a name from there.

Fabric names like โ€œPaisleyโ€ didn't seem quite right, despite their obvious merits. Something about the repeating pattern of a particular fabric, its diamond shapes reminiscent of the target markers in his HUD, called to him.

As he had the distinct honor of being the first Operator to claim this name, he decided to use a sequence number instead of a cohort designation for his last 'name'. So was named โ€œArgyle 1โ€.

He found himself working in the patrol fleets not long after, skirmishing against pirates and other threats. Argyle enjoyed the work and what it meant for his people, but, just like before with fabrics, he found himself longing for something that was larger than the world he knew. When he heard of an Star Army Exchange Program with another military in the sector, it sounded like the perfect opportunity to broaden his horizons once again.

In YE 45, Argyle successfully entered the Star Army's exhange program and made his way towards Yamataian space, eager to see more of the universe and bring honor to the people he represented.
