—Captain Cobb to Skyward Flight

Captain Matthew Cobb (callsign: Mongrel) is a flight instructor for the DDF and a First Citizen. He was the wingmate of Zeen Nightshade (callsign: Chaser), Spensa's father, and when Chaser betrayed Hope flight during Battle of Alta and began to shoot down friendly ships, Cobb shot him down on Ironside's orders.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Cobb is described to be somewhere in his fifties. He has a stark white mustache. Cobb walks with a limp due to being shot down in a battle shortly after the Battle of Alta.


  • His first name, Matthew, is very rarely used, even by his own family.[2]
