Theoto Rikka is a Processor of the Spearhead Squadron. He is described as guileless and brutally honest in his thoughts. His personal codename is Laughing Fox.
A Jade, Theo has long, golden hair and emerald eyes. He is slender and, compared to the other boys, fairly short at 165 cm tall. Like the other Processors, he wears combat fatigues scavenged from the Republic's surplus stocks.
Sarcastic and blunt in his words and humor, Theo also has difficulty restraining himself from speaking his mind. This is most evident in his tirade against Lena in Volume 1.
He holds a grudge against most Alba but is willing to accept that there are some honorable ones due to a past experience in his first squadron, in which his Alba squadron leader refused to retreat to allow the rest of his Colorata comrades to escape. The dying squadron leader's final words to Theo had a profound impact and Theo adopted the leader's Personal Mark of a laughing fox.
Theo keeps a sketchbook that he often draws in.
Combat Ability Edit
Theo's unit, the Laughing Fox, is the most orthodox of the team, being left in its standard weapon configuration. The same cannot be said about his piloting style. Theo is adept at using the grappling wires of his unit, leaping and swinging through the air between trees or buildings. He often attacks from a vertical surface, such as the side of a building, to pierce the thinner top armor of the Legion. This is a strategy that takes advantage of his excellent spatial perception and the fact that the heavily armored Legion such as Löwe and Dinosauria possess major weak spots on their top armor. Some Legion units like the Löwe also have difficulty elevating their weapons, reducing the danger Theo faces when he attacks from above.
