The First Animated Interracial Couple
A veteran pilot of the Global Civil War, one of the first pilots of test of the hunts Varitech and the leader of the famous "SKULL" squadron until he dies, after being hurt in an attack by the Zentraedi.
In charge of communications (shades of Uhura? - sorry for the pun) of the SDF-1, always a calm, yet humorous spirit on the bridge during battle. Roy chooses to spend his last moments with her instead of going directly to the hospital.
How progressive that the relationship was conceived and executed in Japan!
Wouldn't you know they killed him off? One of the saddest death scenes in animation (along with Optimus Prime, of course).
Always tragedy in IR relationships!
