Pilot(real name:Christophorus Hatchenson) is the third main character of Romantically Apocalyptic. He is also one of the four original main characters, the others being Captain, Sniper and Engineer . Out of all three, Pilot is the most mentally unstable, subject to flights of fantasy and daydreams. Despite the fact that his name is Pilot, and he has an obsession with flying, he has shown very little actual skill at flying, although since there are no longer any functioning planes, this seems natural.
Other than aircraft and flying, Pilot's obsessions include tormenting Sniper and Captain. He often hallucinates, viewing himself in a terse dogfight high in the air when he was in fact flying around a toy plane he discovered. He is absolutely infatuated with the Captain, and believes that Sniper wants to steal the Captain from him. He often devises ridiculous schemes to get rid of Sniper, including a plot to feed him to a gigantic fish. It is asumed that he is European or possibly American, but it is unclear.
In all of his appearances, the Pilot wears a leather jacket, a vest, and a gas mask with a tube running to an unseen location beneath his coat. His goggles are green, and green is the color associated with him. He has not been seen using any actual weapon, but wielded a Sharpened metal stick to chop off the limbs off of Cancer. Pilot also is known to have a friend called Mr.Kittyhawk, which is his version of Captains talking to Skeletons. Mr.Kittyhawk has not been seen since Comic #53, after he sold-out Pilot's Location to Cancer.
Aside from his presumed flying skills, Pilot has been shown to have the ability to jump ridiculously high and far. He displayed this ability in his attempt to rescue Sniper from the clutches of Cancer. In addition, he is quite skilled with a a stick, able to cut off a few of Cancer's tentacles.
