Backstory

The Admiral came to the New World as part of the First Fleet forty years ago. Although he calls himself "the top dog" of the Research Commission, he's always been more of a trailblazer than a commander. The way he sees it, it's important to know one's strengths. The Admiral was shocked upon learning that the Seeker had gone missing. He felt disappointed in himself. The Seeker did the thinking, the Commander the directing, the Tracker the searching, and the Huntsman the fieldwork. His role was to lead the others, and that's what he had done until then. The Admiral felt bad for the Commander, since that left him with another role to fulfill. However, he remains confident in the man's skill to run Astera, which leaves him free to wander as far as he pleases. The Admiral was also friends with the Huntsman and the grandfather of the Handler.

It was when the Second Fleet arrived in the New World that he saw a particular mysterious monster for the first time, alone with his Palico. He took a team out to track it but never managed to find it. The rest of the team thought he was seeing things, and he became the laughingstock of the Commission. But the monster he encountered would later come to be called Nergigante, which he will track. 

 

Role in Main Story

The Admiral has always been a free spirit. He is both forceful and bighearted, and with that strength he leads the Commission. He doesn't like being tied down or waiting, preferring to find out answers for himself—hence why he leaves the Commander in charge of things in Astera. He speaks his mind and takes off before anyone can react, disappearing into the wilderness for lengths of time. He likens himself to a sharq; he has to keep moving to stay alive, and he won't rest until he's explored all of the New World. Practical and risible, he demonstrates a zest for life. Due to this habit, he is also called "the wandering leader" by Commission members.

 

Trivia

  • The Admiral only rarely appears in Astera, leaving daily affairs to the Commander. He admits the main reason he comes back is so he can eat at the canteen, which is run by his old partner the Meowscular Chef. Even after the Chef retired from being a Palico, the two remained close. 
  • He may appear to operate on impulse and do whatever he pleases, but that often turns out to be right course of action.
  • The question is whether the storm brings him or he brings the storm. Some Commission members say he is like the eye of a typhoon itself.
  • The Admiral has an uncommonly large frame with a brawny, muscular physique and mane-like blond hair. Combined with his booming voice and heroic appearance, it's no surprise the Admiral was once confused for a Rajang by a member of the Fifth Fleet.
  • The Admiral gear is based around leather, and he has added a shoulder pad to his left arm. Below it his fleet banner hangs. A rope is wrapped around his left arm with a hook attached to it that looks like an arrowhead. He used this alongside his muscular arms (which he is proud of) instead of a slinger. Apparently, he uses ammo like Scatternuts by just throwing them.
