Canis is a Lynx in Armored Core: For Answer.

In-Game BiographyEdit

A young Lynx who pilots a well balanced middleweight biped. Technically independent, but has close ties to Rosenthal. Unlike his big-mouthed tendency, he's known for choosing missions carefully. This makes his illustrious combat record difficult to assess.

In-Game Consort BiographyEdit

He tends to talk big, and is not very popular. However, his NEXT is quite powerful.


Canis appears as a possible allied support throughout the Omer storyline. As the missions progress, it becomes clear that Canis has developed a bit of arrogance from prior successes.

NEXT Savage BeastEdit

NEXT Savage Beast

Quite uniquely, his NEXT uses a TYPE-LANCEL parts with a SOLUH Core, giving it less defense, but better mobility and lower energy consumption. Savage Beast's weaponry consists of Omer's AR-O700 assault rifle and MP-O601JC PM missiles combined with Interior Union's LR-04 AVIOR laser rifle and BM-05 LAMIA AS missiles. His Algebra-made YASMIN flare dispenser rounds off his craft, making it a well balanced unit.


Thanks to his low movement speed compared to other NEXT, grenades may be a good choice when he is on the ground. Also, his SOLUH core is weak against laser blades and he particularly falls down very easily because of it. He is always ready to pop flares when assaulted by missiles, so keep that in mind. His back missile launchers often fire in combos where it may catch you when you least expect it, and his laser rifle/assault rifle arm weapons do have respectable damage output when fired together, so be warned.


Available in both "Clear Out Chinese Shanghai" and "Defeat Unknown NEXT", Savage Beast is the least costly option. However, at 30% of your reward, he is still quite expensive. In "Clear Out Chinese Shanghai", Savage Beast's firepower is quite good at dispatching the Normals and warships, but he will have quite the disadvantage against the Arms Fort. In "Defeat Unknown NEXT" however, he can hold his own against Luster 18's Ferrum Solidus, even in Hard Mode (provided you defeat the Normals escorting Ferrum Solidus first). Given the choice of allies in this particular mission, Savage Beast is a so-so choice, but is still the most economical.

    • (When damaged heavily) AHHH I'm FALLING BACK! There's too many of them!
    • I'm earning more than just my pay here! There better be bonus cash for this!

  • Oddly, Savage beast has an additional 5% of compensation than CUBE has on 'Defeat Unknown NEXT'.
  • There is a typo in his Order Match description on some versions of the game. In this typo, "his big-mouthed tendencies" is replaced by "Big Mouse," alluding to a pilot of that name, none of which exists.
