|Died||Second Battle of Alta|
|Featured In||Skyward (series)|
”Flight Command, a bomber is heading toward the shipyard. It’s carrying a lifebuster.
Callsign Cloak is a scout from Ranger flight in the DDF. She is the seventh member of her flight and flies a Val-class reconnaissance ship, which is designed for scanner avoidance and speed, rather than firepower.
Cloak, along with Underscore, joined Skyward flight under the command of Jorgen in the battle where Hurl died. Cloak and Underscore were ordered by Jorgen to identify enemy ships and relay the information back to Flight Command.
Later, in the battle for the second falling shipyard, Cloak reported the number of Krell ships to Admiral Ironsides, as well as confirmed that a lifebuster had also been sent by the enemy. On Ironsides order, Cloak -- along with the rest of the DDF scouts -- drove the lifebuster away from the shipyard, and it changed its course to instead head towards Alta, moving faster than expected. With the other pilots occupied, Ironsides ordered Cloak and the scouts to engage with the lifebuster and its defense ships. The scouts successfully managed to destroy the lifebuster, however, in doing so, the bomb it had been carrying was dropped onto the surface of Detritus, killing Cloak along with eight other scouts.
