Carom is a Raven appearing in Silent Line: Armored Core. His rank is C-1 in the Arena. He is partnered with Shade in the Extra Arena and they hold the title of the second highest ranked team. He appears in the mission Takeover New Fortress as a mandatory consort. He assists The Raven in defeating Mileage and 7th Heaven under Mirage's orders. Later, in the mission Qualification Exam, he along with 2 other Ravens compete for a mission assignment. Lastly, he is one of the many Ravens participating in the mission Destroy Power Core. During the mission, he recognizes that he has run out of ammo and retreats. As luck would have it, he is one of the few Ravens to survive.
Upon defeating C-3 G
"Your reputation as a skilled mission specialist precedes you, but don't let it go to your head, here in the Arena you're nothing but a second-rate pilot. It would be my pleasure to show you exactly what I mean. I'll be waiting."
- Takeover New Fortress
- Raven, these two are pros.
- Nice shooting Raven.
- Destroy Power Core
- Enemy down. Where to next?
- I'm out of ammo. Pulling out.
Firebird is a red middleweight bipedal AC equipped with an EO core, a rifle, a laser blade, burst missiles, triple rockets, and extension solid shields. Unit uses its weapons to induce overheating while using its Exceed Orbit as support. Close range capability is enhanced with its laser blade, which is even more powerful than the MOONLIGHT at the cost of having less than half the blade length.

Carom can be hired as a consort during the mission, Defend Vargas Airport.
According to fellow pilots, Carom should not be among the living. He has escaped certain death more times than anyone can recall and has never offered an explanation for this odd phenomenon. Lady Luck surely watches over this pilot.
For a C-ranked Raven, Carom isn't actually as hard as you'd expect him to be. His only real threat lies in his rifle, which packs a deadly amount of heat stress and also fires quick, but his other weapons like his cluster missiles and rockets don't actually pose much of a threat, unless you're using a very slow AC or you're standing still. His blade, although powerful, has very short range, so it's very easy to avoid this attack too.
His AC lacks any real sort of anti-missile defense, so raining down a flurry of missiles at him can demolish him rather easily. Other weapons like his rifle, machine guns or handguns work well on him too. Even for a midweight bipedal, he is not as mobile as majority of the others, so hitting him is a tad easier.
He does tend to resort to using his E.O. but he only does so when he's on critical health. However, he shouldn't be able to use it if you kill him quick enough.
- Despite being ranked C-1 in the Arena, the Extra Arena list him as a B ranked Raven, probably because of his skill level.
