In-Game InformationEdit

A rather unusual character, this Raven is afraid of heights, and it is only when he's piloting an AC that the fear is suppressed. Once strapped in, he takes to the skies and is a skilled aerial combatant. Piloting techniques makes up for his AC's shortcomings.


Pylon will start most battles by flying up and firing his rockets in your direction. His main goal appears to be to flank enemies while jumping from place to place. This movement however leaves him open to attacks given that with every landing he pauses a moment before resuming. It is in these brief moments that he can be taken down by enemy fire. Use heavy weapons and wait for these moments to defeat him quickly.



The name Pylon refers to the architectural support that is used to sustain heavy structures.

The name Tower of Wind may refer to the Gregorian Tower (also known as Tower of the Winds). It is a round tower located within the Vatican City. The tower was built in 1580 and was used to promote the study of astronomy.
