(This takes place before Gundam Generation)

"Aaaaand time!"

GM.jpg.20e59c4af2ed66b0788fea24b36ce1a3.jpg

A Daughtress went out in a blaze as a blue beam pierced the belly of the machine. The GM Rush had shot down it's final opponent, ending the mission. Normally a Diver would be excited about whatever prize they'd get, but not Ryu Zero. This was his 27th attempt at the mission, hoping to improve his time on the leader board. The scrawny player sped through the menu, noticing a time of 73.4 seconds. Ryu, who was know in GBN's main lobby, slammed his fist on the front table, catching a couple glances from concerned divers. "HOW THE HELL DID HE FINISH IT FASTER THAN THAT?!" He screamed as he looked at the current record holder.

CARTER LEE

ZAKU FORERUNNER

68.9 seconds

"Every. Single. Time." He uttered, opting to go down one of the nearby hallways away from others. "I don't even know the guy!" It was that moment when an idea popped into the diver's head. Once again pulling open his menu, he found the other player. "Hmm. Doesn't look that tough." He immediately got to work, creating a request for Carter. "We'll fight in space. No asteroids, no debris, nothing!" He pressed down the button for the fight offer. "Just my GM vs his Zaku!"

Carter was lounging in the hangar of the main lobby, since it was a place that players could see each others builds, talk shop about upgrades, and lounge around in their cockpit, he was checking the marketplace on one monitor, while the other was fixated on the leaderboards, for speed of course. “Hmm..” he thought to himself “Should i get the pet Elemechu?.. its expensive, though..” he thought. 
 

He saw a score pop up on the leaderboard and raised an eyebrow “73.4..” he said to himself “What slowed him down?.. hmm..” he was thinking pretty intently before he got a ping, and a request for a PVP battle “Huh?- Thats the same guy”.

Carter hovered over the ignore button, before a thought came into his head, fighting him would let him see his set up, and it could help him train his aim too “Alright, guy.. lets do it”. Carter smiled and then accepted the fight, the countdown started.. Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six...

Five, Four, Three, Two, One.

At that moment, Ryu was transported to one of the space levels. The battleground was closer to the Earth than expected, but no debris or other objects were in sight. "This'll work." He thought while staring at the monitor. A blue Zaku floated opposite of the GM, almost waiting for someone to start the battle. "You won't beat me here." The diver uttered as he opened up the comms to the opposing Gunpla. 

"Carter Lee!" Ryu yelled out. "You may have some of the best time records in GBN, but I REALLY want to see how well you battle others." His tone was more mellow, making it seem more like a friendly brawl than petty revenge. The GM pointed it's beam rifle at the blue Gunpla. "I'll prove to you how fast I am!" The rest of the GM's movements were a blur. The mobile suit moved in all sorts of different directions as it fired at the Zaku, hoping to get closer to the machine while its pilot was distracted. With no G-Forces, Ryu could focus entirely on destroying his combatant while the red Gunpla jerked around.

“Damn- he’s really going for it!” Carter tried to track him as best he could, but he figured out quickly just how difficult that would be, he clicked his tongue and raised his shield as he turned his thrusters on “Lemme show you a little something then!” He said over comms, he quickly dropped altitude and started cruising around at high speeds, matching the pace of the red blur, trading pot shots with it as they streaked across space. 
 

Carter looked at the monitors, he wasn’t that good at PVP.. well, at all.. but he had lots of practice when it came to general combat, if he was gonna win this.. then he’d have to be careful!

 

Carter swapped weapons out, he quickly went to a full stop as he drew his bazooka, leading the shot carefully and.. “Fire!” He declared, letting loose a fast flying missile towards his opponent!

The bazooka's missile shot out faster than Ryu had expected, not giving him much time to take it out. Luckily, the GM had more than just it's beam rifle. As he fired the GM's shoulder cannons, the destroyed missiles blast sent Ryu flying away. "Come on, get steady!" He yelled while the red gunpla tumbled through the depths of the Earth Sphere. Pulling forward on all of his engines, the diver attempted to regain his balance, opting to put away his beam rifle on the waist instead of continued fire. 

Many of the boosters pushed him around, but he soon got in position to strike. "Alright then. Let's get personal!" The GM blasted back to the Zaku, pulling out one of the two beam sabers inside of it's shield. Ryu ignited the pink sword, striking diagonally down at his blue foe. "Just try and dodge this!"

Carter clicked his tongue as the rocket he shot got taken down “Good reflexes, he’s good” He said to himself, though he wasn’t idly speaking.. he was preparing his next strike, stowing away the bazooka as he stayed within range of his tumbling opponent, he wanted to capitalize; he started to aim his arm mounted vulcan guns, but..

 

”He righted himself?- that quickly?!” He was surprised, he didn’t know someone could do that in such a manner, especially in PVP. 


He saw his opponent start dashing at him, he was new to PVP but.. he wasn’t gonna run off “I’ll accept that challenge head on!” He said, drawing his heat sword and dashing to meet his opponent! “Take this!” He swung diagonally upwards, the two machines met close up as sparks flew off the clashing weaponry!

 

A Blue Zaku, and a Red GM.. they were like two ace pilots meeting in the middle of the One Year War.

The speed of the two Diver's and their Gunpla was nothing to scoff at. As the OYW machines connected their blades, Ryu intended to fire his shoulder cannons once again, but a problem arose. "Damn! The angle!" He yelled while attempted to point the extra weapons. He'd be firing at nothing, an undamaged Zaku head being the only thing between the two shots.

"Come on then! Let's see how you handle this speed!" WIth the flick of the GM's wrist, Ryu's second beam saber ignited. The heat sword was winning, causing the diver to create an X-shape with the pink blades in order to defend himself. However, that wasn't his speedy trick...

Ryu pushed hard on both joysticks of the machine, bringing him and Carter farther from the Earth Sphere. With the assault being commenced, Ryu hoped that the heat blade would wear out due to pressure.

Carter clicked his tongue and tried to think fast, after he pulled the second beam saber he knew that his heat blade was gonna lose out, though.. that wasn't his only melee weapon! Carter let himself get pushed back away from earth, before suddenly swinging his heat blade up and away, letting go of it completely “Let’s scrap!” He shouted as one of the Zaku’s shoulder spikes popped off, he grabbed onto it like a knuckle duster and threw a huge uppercut to his opponents torso. 

He glanced at the monitors to the side, it would be bad if he stayed in close.. but those shoulder cannons would be equally annoying to deal with, he grit his teeth and bit the bullet. Connect or not.. after that punch, he was gonna boost backwards to gain some distance!

"Ooo-ah..." Ryu's mobile suit was no G Gundam, but it really seemed like he felt that uppercut. The spike hit the Torso HARD, sending the entire machine away from the blue Zaku. "Man, gotta get my bearings together." The Diver uttered, shaking his head as he grasped the controls. Looking at each of the monitors, he couldn't find his beam saber, likely lost somewhere in the far reaches of the map. Watching the Zaku attempt to gain some distance, he waited for his time to strike.

"Now!" Pulling out the beam rifle off the Gunpla's waist, he erratically fired it, along with the two shoulder cannons. "Let's add the vulcans too. Why not?" Pink beams and bullets blasted to the Zeon machine, hoping to make their mark.

Carter congratulated himself for the slick escape, not realizing he had just put himself in even more danger, he returned the shoulder spike back onto his.. shoulder, and turned around, ready to fire on his enemy- But what met him instead was a barrage of beams, bullets, and missiles “Ah man!” He raised his shield to block it but got sent flying back, the damage it caused broke the shield, but luckily the arm mounted Vulcan guns were intact. 
 

“Helluva barrage..” he said, floating there, he decided to draw his machine gun and start firing back while moving erratically, his machine moved in complex patterns, sudden diagonals, quick turns, even doubling back before moving forward suddenly to vary the times which his shots would land

“Ha! This the best you’ve got?!” Ryu yelled as he began to match the patterns, but flaws started to arise, calling for drastic measures. “That’s it! It’s time for this charade to end.” The red GM tossed aside its shield as Ryu fires every thruster on the unit. The Federation Gunpla blasted in the general direction of the enemy Zaku, pulling out both of its beam sabers.

”Come on Carter! I’ll-“ BOOM! The right side of his monitor began to blare red. “What?” The GM’s right leg had blown off at the knee, sending it flying behind him. At that moment, the left arm completely shattered under the intense pressure. “Oh please no.” By the time he had made it too the blue mobile suit, his Gunpla was only a head and torso, now slowly floating towards the Zaku. “Aw man...”

Carter grabbed his shoulder spike once more and was preparing to catch his opponent with another strike, “Ora!-“ though, he stopped and held himself back as he saw his opponents Gunpla fall apart at the joints, when he saw the torso and head float over.. he didn’t know how to react.. for a bit. 
Carter put the shoulder spike away and floated over to his opponent, catching him “Whoa- uhh.. are you okay?” He asked over comms

Ryu was shocked by the other Diver's actions. "Oh. I'm honestly shocked you didn't go for the kill." He stated as the GM was held in the Zaku's arms. "Honestly, I've been having issues with the thrusters on my unit." He looked around as the warnings kept blaring. "I think it has something to do with the build quality." Ryu thought about the other speedrunner, realizing that he'd have good advice. "I'd say you've won this battle, but could you actually give me some tips on fixing that?"

“It wouldn’t feel right to have gone for the kill in this situation..” Carter said, he looked kinda confused when he was suddenly asked for advice, he rubbed his chin and thought about it “Well.. its most likely loose joints right? Depending on the kit you use.. Take some clear or black nail varnish and coat the polycaps or joint with them, it should thicken it up so that when you put it back in the socket itll be a better fit” Carter thought that should do it, since thats what he used before

"Huh. I guess I should try that!" The two floated in the middle of the battlefield, but no battle was currently being held...

...

The GM Rush blasted forward as it stabbed the last blue Zeon unit. The mobile suit crashed to the ground, creating dust all around him. "And time!" Ryu yelled out as the GM ignited its thrusters, now no longer flawed thanks to his new friend. Being brought back to the main lobby, the diver checked the score of the mission.

RYU ZERO

GM RUSH

58.6 seconds

Ryu didn't jump for joy or freak out. He simply smiled, knowing that he got that score with the help of Carter.

      Wade Lincoln

      Full name: Wade John Lincoln
      Age: 15
      Sex: Male
      Height: 5'4"
      Weight: 115 lbs
      Eyes: Brown
      Hair: Pink (Black IRL)
      Skin: Dark-skinned
      Handiness: Left-handed
      Personality
      Wade will make mistakes, there's no doubt about that, but he always means well. He's frequently starstruck by many different popular Divers, with him always attempted to get an autograph or picture. He also had massive amounts of loyalty and respect for his now former team, UNIVERZ. That hasn't stopped him from making new friends though. No matter who or what you are, Wade Lincoln will always treat you with kindness.
      Strengths and Weaknesses
      At this point, Wade has played for a couple of years, but he still only has the skills of a rookie. After relying on others to pick up his stack, he may not be able to take out even normal enemies and may come across as cowardly. However, he's still got a knack for artillery and other long range weaponry. The Gunpla he's built have allowed him to become an opportunist against foes, giving him a shot to take many shots.
      Appearance
      An African American teenager, Wade's avatar is similar to his real life persona, except for the recent addition of pink hair. He normally wears different types of jackets, with a replica of Banagher's being his favorite. He's shorter than the average diver, also mimicking the real world. The colors he picks are bright, but still somewhat warm.
      History
      Wade grew up watching Gundam series thanks to his father's love for the franchise. Looking around walls to watch series his dad said were "too dark", he was mesmerized by the way the mobile suits looked. This eventually made him take up building Gunpla, something his dad didn't really enjoy. He started with basic kits, but once he got ahold of the Gundam Origin Manga, Wade became obsessed with it, creating customs based around the remake or the original series. In fact, his first mobile suit was built for years before he finally was allowed to play GBN.
      It was a dream come true for the kid. An interactive world featuring almost limitless Gundam players and missions? Wade was hooked, quickly being scooped up into a small team called UNIVERZ. Their leader, Chris, was an ace Diver, allowing the entire team a chance at large amounts of success. Wade did little to help this though, but soon the team made a name for itself, participating in the Lotus Challenge ver. Eldora and the third Coalition of Volunteers battle. These battle changed Wade, showing him that sometimes you had to fight, even when the odds are against you.
      Something changed Chris as well, causing him to prioritize power and status over friendship. UNIVERZ got extremely large, and while they got more popular, some of the original members decided to leave. Wade stuck around, believing it was the right thing to do, but an accident ended up changing those plans. Now in charge of a brand new team, Wade knew someday that Fleurs De Noblesse would come face to face with the team he used to respect so much...

      Character name
       Apollo
      Biography
      Full name: Apollo (real name unknown)
      Faction: Zapp Inc.
      Titles: The Golden Heart of Space; The Shooting Star Diver; The Shining Light From Beyond Jupiter 
      Age: 27
      Sex: Male
      Height: 5’8’’
      Weight: 160 lbs
      Eyes: Green
      Hair: Brown
      Skin: White
      Handiness: Right
       
      Personality
      Charismatic. Brave. Mysterious. Charming. Handsome. Heroic. These are but a few of the words often used to describe Apollo, mostly by Apollo himself. The man known as Apollo has crafted his GBN persona around the masked hero archetype and strives to adhere to the heroic image he has set up for himself to an often bombastic degree. Eager to help those in need, Apollo often volunteers as a navigator for new players. His somewhat over-the-top personality is often interpreted as an act by some of the more cynical divers in GBN, and they might just be on to something…
       
      Strengths and weaknesses
      Corporate Backing—As an employee of Zapp Inc., Apollo has access to thousands of free and rare parts and kits, as well as a team of highly skilled artisans to assist in building and customizing.
      Hidden Secrets—Conversely, Apollo’s ties to Zapp inc. come at a great personal cost. There is much that remains unknown about the masked diver that, should the information be discovered and put into the wrong hands, might be the end of Apollo.
      Skills to pay the bills—While at first shout Apollo may seem to be little more than a comedic corporate mascot, the diver has a wealth of skills and experience under his belt. Rumours abound that Apollo might be a famous professional diver and this is all some big PR stunt…
      Stubborn and Self-Righteous—Like any good star, when the going gets rough, Apollo gets rougher. Apollo has a tendency to lose his cool when under extreme amounts of pressure and values his ideas and strategies over those of others.
      Appearance
      Apollo’s iconic golden clown mask is the first thing people think of when they think of, well, him. The slim diver accentuates his look with a glossy black body suit and flowing red scarf, as well as a shoulder harness and seemingly pointless utility belt. In truth, his look was meticulously focus tested by a dedicated Zapp marketing team to evoke the sentai and kamen heroes of yore while also hinting that the man behind the mask could be anyone.
       
      History
      There is little concrete information about who the man known as Apollo was before he put on the mask. The two most compelling theories could not be any further from each other in terms of prestige. Some posit that Apollo is, in actuality, a pro diver hired by Zapp inc. to bolster their popularity. Others say that he is little more than a humble graphic artist whose skills were discovered by higher ups in the marketing department. But regardless of who Apollo actually is, it is universally agreed that he is the latest in a line of marketing schemes dreamed up by Zapp Inc. and that that scheme is working.
      Whether he came from within Zapp or from without, Apollo has proved immensely popular with the player base, at least for the time being, thanks in part to his flashy mobile suits, his abilities as a diver, and his general friendliness. Some remain sceptical however, and rumours abound that the diver’s willingness to help others is all an act.
      Apollo is tight-lipped about his true goals and intentions and insists to those that ask that he is merely here to spread the “good will of justice” to GBN and to “cut through the simmering darkness that threatens the integrity of gunpla”.

      "Aida"


      Full name: Unknown

      Faction: Challengers of Diamond

      Rank: Guy With The Leadership Stick

      Age: Appears as a young adult ingame.

      Sex: Male

      Weight: Unknown

      Height: Slightly tall

      Eyes: Green, gold (in-game)

      Hair: Brown, silver (in-game)

      Skin: Caucasian

      Handiness: Right-handed

      Personality
      A self-described Universal Century snob, he tended to avoid Gundam material that was not as serious as Universal Century, and favored Mobile Suits from the RGM line or with a resemblance to it. However, his friends often rub off on him and add diversity to his designs, whether he realizes it or not. Knowledgeable but playful, he feels a guilty pleasure for acting, often muttering random military terminology through the radio to add to the atmosphere and getting into his "figure of authority" character. Fortunately, everyone at the 08th Thespian Mobile Suit Team has similar traits.

      Strengths and weaknesses
      Master Of The Airbrush - While no slouch at building either, Aida's pulse is unflinching and his sense of aesthetics is above average, which allows him to paint and detail Gunpla exquisitely. This has won him some awards, but is most useful at his line of work, where clients have the option of paying him to paint and detail their builds, and sets his builds apart.
      Head With A Price - A past incident with powerful and well-known individuals in the GBN scene, including his former crew, have made Aida fearful that what he calls "the Gunpla Mafia" is sending virtual hitmen against him, and will one day send thugs to his shop in real life. This makes it difficult for people to gain his trust, but while his fears are somewhat grounded in reality, they're mostly irrational, given the scale of the incident.
      Pragmatic - While he favors aerial warfare, being a frequent team player has taught him to choose the best way to balance his team. He is capable of performing decently in every role and terrain, making the best of what he's got and the people he works with.
      Easily Antagonized - Aida is quick to add new grudges to his already vast collection of them. He isn't quick to forgive those he feels have wronged him if evidence against his case does not surface, and will often go out of his way to try to obtain retribution when he sees one of the objects of his resentment, among which there are even specific Mobile Suit models and color combinations.
      Appearance
      Aida is usually seen in elegant dress uniforms and striking poses he thinks are cool. His avatar is a young Caucasian male with green eyes, messy silver curtained hair and reading glasses. His most recent attire is a ZAFT Red Coat uniform made by Zapp's fashion line, recolored blue and white, with added white gloves. Since the ZAFT patches can be replaced with patches for any faction, he modified the stock ones to read "Challengers of Diamond". However, he could not bring himself to remove the "Z", since it's his favorite letter.
      History
      One of the three owners of a major hobby shop, Aida's is peculiar in that it takes orders from customers to assemble kits and/or customize them, physically and visually according to the customer's specifications. He is in charge of painting and detailing not only Gunpla, but also plastic models of other categories, while his best friend Daniel is in charge of assembling the kits and modifying them, while the remaining owner works as the manager. Years ago, he was bored out of his mind despite the highly creative purposes of his job. His curiosity was definitely piqued when the number of orders for completely customized builds boomed as a result of the launch of a mysterious new attraction: Gunpla Duel. Quickly, he convinced the manager to get the shop infraestructure for the game, which proved to be a highly convenient move, as he could now assume the role of a test pilot to try out customers' machines in battle and ensure that they had the desired performance. When Gunpla Battle Nexus was released later, it was only natural for the shop to acquire cabinets for it, but the old Gunpla Duel tables were kept for old-school enthusiasts and the novelty factor.
      He once managed to enter a competitive Diver Force focused on atmospherical Mobile Suits, known as Just Another Non Existent Team or JANET. While he climbed the ranks of the force to become one of its key pilots, he grew increasingly tired of the pressure of competitive play. After tensions escalated with his superiors, he deserted Janet for the 08th Thespian Mobile Suit Team, a peaceful Force that preferred to recreate events from all Gundam series inside Created Missions, with all members acting as typical generic pilots, or sometimes, main characters. After growing fond of this new group, he started offering discounts and tips to help his fellow actors buy machines in a state as impeccable as his from the hobby shop or building their own, thus becoming the second-in-command of the force and a favorite among them.
      One day, while the group's activities were in recess to help a member practice for the finals of a major tournament, Aida received an e-mail from the leader of the Force, who had gotten permission from a friend at the GBN administration to play Update 1.8's closed beta, but wouldn't be using the privilege due to becoming a father for the first time that week. Instead, he told the administrator to transfer the Closed Beta Ticket to Aida's account, asking him to check the new features out on behalf of the club, reporting any problems to their friendly administrator along the way. Now, Aida logs into his account by night while doing ''extra hours'', to deck himself in an impressive new set of clothes, and get the inside scoop on every new feature...
      Possessions
      Aida owns:
      RGM-86T Tel-GM
      A basic Gunpla made jointly by Aida and his friend Daniel, it stands as a testament of their combined craftsmanship for users of GBN to behold. Based on various Federation and AEUG Mobile Suits, it is quite basic, but can be easily modified to suit different kinds of Mobile Suit warfare, which changes its name to Cosmotel, Airbatel, Aquatel or Terratel when tailored to space, aerial, maritime or terrestrial warfare respectively. It features a pair of elven-looking antennae that augment the operating perimeter of the radio transmitter and receiver, and hidden slots for accessories that feature Zapp plugs, which have now been adopted as the official standard for option parts. Interestingly, Zeonic influences and even parts from other universes have been finding their way into some of its setups, despite starting out as a UC lore-friendly kit.

    • By FrostyFoster
      Wade had fallen to the ground of his cockpit, still seeing a flurry of white on each of his screens. The Diver had done missions, but nothing like this. The blast of chilly wind engulfed his little SD as more snow began to pile on top of the Gunpla. “I’d rather not get buried…” Wade thought, getting up the grasp the controls. The brown machine pushed itself forward with its hands, struggling to stay balanced while taking a barrage of bad weather. “Aker, Icarus!” He yelled out through his comms, wiping ice off the large eye section of the mobile suit. He'd lost the white ReZEL, but the Diver could very faintly still see Astray. That is until the blizzard quickly gave him no sense of direction, losing the unit in the process.
      At this level, he could see hills of snowbanks all around him. “There’s gotta be some sort of base or mobile suit around here.” The Diver stated to the others while pulling his LMG out of the snow. Thankfully, the Diver's communications still worked, no matter what climate it was. “Do either of you have any recon or like, tracking devices or something?” Pulling up his menu, Wade put a generic compass on his left screen, minimizing it. The small model kit started walking in a direction that felt the least troublesome, an incline that led south. “I'm walking south, but who knows if that'll lead me to the mission." The Gunpla started shivering, holding its tiny arms together. "I’m up for any ideas honestly…” Wade wondered if this was a huge mistake after all.
    • By Hunter
      Biography
      Full name: Gabriel Winter
      Aliases: Hunter, Aker (Akerhero13)
      Faction: Zapp (indirectly), Fluers de Noblesse
      Rank: n/a
      Age: 22
      Sex: Male
      Height: 5’7” 
      Weight: 150 
      Eyes: Brown
      Hair: Brown
      Skin: pale 
      Handiness: Ambidextrous 
      Personality:
      Gabriel can be emotional if not brash. He values his past to the point of obsession, this has led him to do questionable things in GBN. Despite his volatile attitude he is capable of being incredibly loyal and sensitive to the situation. He often makes plans to help himself stay on task and to keep himself level headed, though reality often makes his plans go out the window. He finds it difficult to connect with other players, often taking awhile to fully come out of his shell. As he’s matured he’s become increasingly pragmatic in how he approaches things, but still struggles to come to terms with reality at times. 
       
      Strengths and weaknesses
      Sentimental - Because Gabe is emotional, he can often make bad tactical decisions. If a particular mobile suit reminds him of something negative in his past, he’ll attack it headlong in rage. (Notable units are the GN-X, and Destiny Gundam)
      Berserker- Gabriel is the textbook battle rager. His reactions sharpen significantly when he is fired up. 
      Resourceful – Gabriel has made a substantial amount of credits within GBN and has access to his own Force Nest. These resources allow him to buy extravagant items or obtain questionable material in the game. 
      Fear of the death – Gabriel has a fear and aversion to dying in GBN. This at times could be at odds with his teammates and objectives. This fear also translates into doing his best to avoid killing enemy NPDs. He greatly distastes pointless deaths in the game and isn’t afraid to oppose his teammates should they needlessly kill NPDs. 
       
      Appearance
      He is thinly built, clean cut, and average height. He takes good care of his body, working out regularly. Typically he wears a black poncho and mask, but he will adapt his wardrobe as needed. 
      History
      Gabriel recalls having a healthy childhood with a loving family. He developed a curiosity in martial arts at a young age and is versed in Kung Fu as well as well as Haidong Gundo (Korean Swordsmanship). As he became a teenager his interest grew to include Gundam and he was consumed by all the possibilities it offered. As GBN became a phenomenon, Gabriel rode the waves of its success. He was never known for being an accomplished diver, and his Gunpla was never anything all that special. *
      As he continued to enjoy the GBN community he developed a friendship and eventually a romance with another diver. She was initially timid and not confident her abilities, but as their friendship grew he lovingly dubbed her Meer due to her obsession with the Gundam Seed franchise (particularly Lacus). They both ended up joining a Force by the name of Seed Cosplay Coalition, a force focused on cosplay as well as Gunpla. Of course Gabriel was never big into costumes but would play along, often feeling like the third wheel in their group of friends.
      His conflicting interests with Meer and SCC eventually began to sour their relationship along with them being coupled through a long distance relationship. Meer broke up with Gabriel, sending the young man into a spiral of despair. He drowned his anguish by applying himself to Gunpla and jumped at the chance to join the GBN Beta when he was giving an invitation. (This directly leads into the events of Gunpla Breaker, Heart Taker).
      As he joined the GBN Beta he spent increasingly more and more time logged in, obsessed with becoming a better diver. Through a series of adventures and circumstances he grew in skill considerably to the point of even developing a reputation. He even was able to defeat Hashmal with the help of a diver named Dave and his Astaroth Smackdown (see Order of the Seven Stars). Despite his accomplishments he still couldn’t get the over his ex. His obsession eventually led to him joining forces with a mysterious figure who claimed to be affiliated with the Zapp corporation. This alliance lead to one of the more destructive hacking events the entire community had seen to date. Together Gabriel with the Zapp associate, raided a peaceful  Gundam Seed gathering, the event would be infamously referred to as the “Second Bloody Valentine Massacre”. 
      The outcome of the event led to revelations that caused Gabriel to go into hiding in GBN. With the help of his Zapp associate he has since assumed a second identity known as Akerhero13 or simply Aker. He joined with Wade and Icarus to create a new force by the name Fluer De Noblesse (see Three Musketeers).
