Comments on Spoon's Characters Thread
In the tech room, you will find character profiles. You will also find that several of these characters air their views on the other members of the JGASF. I will do the same, and I hope others will do too, including the new batch of Cyrvans that have arrived in the ask a question thread. Below is a helpful template for people to copy-paste with the characters in alphabetical order if anyone wants to do this and below that my views on them. I hope I didn‘t miss anyone:

Axe:

Crystal:

Dawn:

Emizer:

Isa:

Justice:

Kunoichi:

Luna:

Milkshake:

Misuzu:

Scar:

Tempest:

Wynter:

Yaiceca:

Now, my opinions on these people:

Axe: Of all the characters, Axe is the one I want to know more about the most. All his stuff suggest he’s a really nice guy. He even gets on with Luna, while the others don’t seem to, or simply don’t notice her. I also found him very useful in battle. He’s also a really big guy. It would be nice to have some heavy muscle backing me up if I needed it! So I would definitely try to befriend Axe, although going by his personality, he would be more likely to try and befriend me, since he seems to try and befriend everyone.

Crystal: I think Crystal is an excellent commander, and I was happy to follow her orders. I also liked seeing her pretty face in the top left corner of my screen. I’d be happy to serve under her. I definitely think they made the best choice putting her in charge. She seems like someone you could approach and air your views and she’d listen and respect your opinion rather than someone who would just want you to obey orders without question or be replaced. And of course, she also ends up being the saviour of the story, saving us all from being enslaved or annihilated by the Hertak.

Dawn: To say she is in the title of the game, you know very little about Dawn really. She doesn’t spend much time in the game, you never get to fly with her, she doesn’t talk much, and spends most of her time away from the JGASF, so she doesn’t interact with the crew. She is shy, and also comes off a bit cold to me. I also really didn’t like her forcing the name Infi on the AI against it’s will. That said I’d give getting to know her a shot, but it would be more out of curiosity than anything. History was my favourite subject at school, so if I existed in that universe, I’m sure I’d be very eager to talk to Dawn about the past World she came from.

Emizer: Emizer hasn’t shown his face much. Maybe he’s shy of talking to us aliens. He has a stern look about him, but has been respectful and helpful on his few appearances, and his first appearance was to squash an assumption that Cyrvan males and females where hard to tell apart. I’d like to see more of him to learn more about him. And we haven’t yet had a chance to see any other male Cyrvans besides him either.

Isa: I am wary of Isa. I didn’t like her at first and shunned her, as she seems something of a Cyrvan supremacist, but she also has shown respect and intelligence and a willingness to answer our questions, so I’ve started to talk to her recently. However, I do get a feeling that she is a potential veiled threat. While we learn from her, what might she be learning from us? She also seems to be gathering together a following around here. What plans might she have for these people? The following is growing, and who knows what may happen if the shepherd decided to herd her sheep…

Justice: Justice does an excellent job at playing the father figure and keeping the unruly, excitable mob of youngsters on the Guardian Angel grounded. I believe the man plays a huge role in the success of the JGASF, and I would imagine if I was to appear on that ship, he’d be the first one out to greet me and would be showing me around and showing me the ropes. In battle he also seems to do a great job at notching up the kills. You get the feeling he might be a bit of a joke character when you first meet him, but soon learn nothing could be further from the truth. He’s easygoing, but also insightful. I think he’d also make a good peacemaker if there was trouble amongst the crew.

Kunoichi: Kunoichi is a shy and seemingly nice, kind girl. She would probably be the first person I would try to approach if I was to show up on the Guardian Angel. I like her personality. She is in some ways your stereotypical “weak one” in the roster, but she doesn’t annoy me in the way such characters in games sometimes can. I like her.

Luna: In the game, I don’t think she ever speaks. She can be relied on in battle, if only because she gets to fly an Aestival. Luna has come out to talk in the ask a question thread though, and I like her quirky, cheerful personality. I don’t think I’d have the problem the other members of the JGASF bar Axe have with her, and would definitely give getting to know her a shot.

Milkshake: I don’t like her. She seems to have a negative personality, the kind of person who’s never happy. Not personable at all. She does seem to fire up in battle though, so at least she’d be reliable in battle.

Misuzu: On the ship I would try to distance myself from Misuzu. In battle, I’d like to be near her. She is a hyperactive ditz on ship, a genius pilot in battle. I wouldn’t be able to do with having her around me I’m sure. Fortunately she seems to have taken a strange interest in Crystal, so I should be able to keep her at arms length.

Scar: Scar’s racism towards the Cyrvans would have been a problem for me, but by the end of the game he has rid himself of it. Still though, he doesn’t seem a pleasant guy at all, so I wouldn’t be interested in mixing with him.

Tempest: I really don’t like Tempest, due to her saying Nyoho all the time, her stuck up attitude, and her victimisation of Kunoichi. If she was in the “loveable asshole” role, and pranked everyone equally, she might be tolerable. But picking on one person, she’d be a negative influence on the ship for me, and I think she should be disciplined by Crystal. She is the one I like the least of all the crew members. She doesn’t seem to have any interest in mixing with the others either as far as I can tell.

Wynter: This is a placeholder for later after we learn more about Wynter. I am hopeful this new Cyrvan will be more like Crystal and less like a certain someone who I’m going to talk about next…

Yaiceca: This one is nothing but trouble. Some have suggested she is simply a troll, and that may be true. She will not even say the world Terran without misspelling it, and looks down upon us as nothing more than vermin. I dislike Yaiceca simply because of her views on us, which are thoroughly undeserved. She sometimes answers questions, but they are often soaked in her condescension, and she likes to play petty games too. She also is very proficient at looking smug.

Re: Comments on Spoon's Characters Thread
It's been a while since I played Wings of Dawn, so I won't have very accurate comments.

Axe: I'd say a decent and respectable wingman, I wouldn't complain if I got stuck with him.

Crystal: Crystal is a good commander who can hold her own, I did my best to follow her orders to the letter.

Dawn: She's in the title, with Infi, nothing could stop her, Dawn is someone that i'd like to get to know better.

Emizer: I don't know enough about Emizer to make any comment without risking an insult, though he does show a decent amount of respect, compared to the others.

Isa: Isa seems like the type of person who'd make an excellent commander, she will complete her objectives and destroy any that oppose her. She also answers our questions, which is rather nice.

Justice: Justice is a very good wingman, when Justice was in my wing, the battlefield became a lopsided slaughterhouse.

Kunoichi: Kunoichi's on the shy side, but seems like a kind person, i'd try to get to know her better. She also did a good job when she was in my wing.

Luna: Luna is... well.... awesome. I'd like to know her a little more though.

Milkshake: I like the fact that she has a knife, she also did good on the battlefield.

Misuzu: Misuzu seems like the person that you can't hide from (not that I would), and is pretty much unstoppable on the battlefield when she gets going.

Scar: Don't know much, probably don't want to know much, though he is a good wingman, so i'd have a hard time not getting to know him.

Tempest: The name definitely fits her, both on the ship, and in the battlefield.

Wynter: I don't know much about Wynter, so i'll just avoid making comments about her.

Yaiceca: Yaiceca... if you show her some respect join her fanclub, she'll not troll you as much, so i'm safe... ish. I do like the smug look that she constantly keeps, despite those pesky Merran's best attempts. :p

Now I have my issues with Lorric's comments, so i'll state them.

Dawn: To say she is in the title of the game, you know very little about Dawn really. She doesn’t spend much time in the game, you never get to fly with her, she doesn’t talk much, and spends most of her time away from the JGASF, so she doesn’t interact with the crew. She is shy, and also comes off a bit cold to me. I also really didn’t like her forcing the name Infi on the AI against it’s will. That said I’d give getting to know her a shot, but it would be more out of curiosity than anything. History was my favourite subject at school, so if I existed in that universe, I’m sure I’d be very eager to talk to Dawn about the past World she came from.
If Infi had a major problem with the name, i'm sure he'd have said something later on, that name just wasn't built into his programming, so it was odd for him.

Misuzu: On the ship I would try to distance myself from Misuzu. In battle, I’d like to be near her. She is a hyperactive ditz on ship, a genius pilot in battle. I wouldn’t be able to do with having her around me I’m sure. Fortunately she seems to have taken a strange interest in Crystal, so I should be able to keep her at arms length.
What's wrong with Misuzu? She's just having a good time. She kept her cool her version of cool in the middle of a giant war.

Tempest: I really don’t like Tempest, due to her saying Nyoho all the time, her stuck up attitude, and her victimisation of Kunoichi. If she was in the “loveable asshole” role, and pranked everyone equally, she might be tolerable. But picking on one person, she’d be a negative influence on the ship for me, and I think she should be disciplined by Crystal. She is the one I like the least of all the crew members. She doesn’t seem to have any interest in mixing with the others either as far as I can tell.
Kunoichi was her roommate, that makes it significantly easier to torment her, and about the pranking equally part, remember the gravity control and the showers?

Yaiceca: This one is nothing but trouble. Some have suggested she is simply a troll, and that may be true. She will not even say the world Terran without misspelling it, and looks down upon us as nothing more than vermin. I dislike Yaiceca simply because of her views on us, which are thoroughly undeserved. She sometimes answers questions, but they are often soaked in her condescension, and she likes to play petty games too. She also is very proficient at looking smug.
I know that I seem to stand up for Yaiceca a lot, but come on, you've been just as bad as her when talking to or about her. Besides, didn't you say something about a truce?

Re: Comments on Spoon's Characters Thread
Thanks LunarNightmare. Hopefully that will encourage others to follow our example.

As for your issues:

I feared Infi would blast Dawn into space. But just because it didn't, that doesn't mean it didn't have a problem with the enforced name. I know it didn't like it.

Misuzu, it's not that I have a real reason to dislike her, I think she'd just wear me out! I can imagine her tugging and pulling at me and jabbering in my ear trying to get me to do things and I'd be like "No, i'm tired, there's a war on, leave me alone!" :)

That was in the academy, but the pranking continues on the ship. It's true Tempest isn't entirely pranking Kunoichi, and she also goes after Milkshake too, but Kunoichi is still the preferred victim.

Yes, but only because she deserves it. I just stated the facts here. If she doesn't bother me, and stops with the merrans and gerrans, then I won't bother her.

Re: Comments on Spoon's Characters Thread
Well here goes nothing.

Crystal: makes me think of Kugiyima Rie

Dawn: C-cup ^_^

Tempest: -_-;;...flat? *runs

Wynter: actually my favourite since I can relate to her laid back and agreeable attitude.
