Nedd Strong (callsign Nedder) is a cadet in DDF Flight School and pilot number two in Skyward Flight.[1][2] He is one of the two assistant flightleaders, along with Arturo, of Skyward Flight.[1] He is familiar with military protocol, likely due to his two older brothers who are both pilots in the DDF.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Nedd is 193 centimeters tall,[3] and has a faint accent that is normally associated with those from the lower caverns.[4] He is good natured,[citation needed] easy going,[citation needed] and friendly,[4] easily befriending many of his fellow flightmates during the early days of Flight School.[4] He is quick to joke with others in a friendly manner.[5]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

During Flight School Nedd trains to pilot a Poco, perform aerial maneuvers, and use its weaponry. He has some knowledge of piloting and starfighters, and has some prior practical experience in flying and dogfighting from before Flight School.[4] However, he lacks the theoretical understanding of starfighters and flying that is known by those in the flight who either took the entrance exam or have previously studied piloting.[6] As well as this, his previous practical experience has either not been extensive or not involved flying with a wingmate as at the beginning of his training he tended to fly too far away from his partner during battle,[4] and he is not completely aware of all the controls in his ship.[5]
