'Pilot' 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 surreal fantasy and daydreams. It was revealed in a diary entry that he was once a fighter pilot.
Other than aircraft and flying, Pilot's obsessions include tormenting Sniper and serving Captain. He often hallucinates, viewing himself in a terse dogfight high in the air when in fact flying around a toy plane he discovered. He is infatuated with Captain, and believes that Sniper wants to steal 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 assumed that he is European or possibly American, but it is unclear. He found a name on the inside of his jacket called "Christophorus Hatchenson" but it is unknown if this is in fact his real name, due to his mental state, and it could really just be a jacket he found somewhere. However, it is also seen here that these two figures call him "Mr. Hatchenson." He tried to create a "Church of Captain", and tied Sniper to a couch because he wouldn't join.Snippy states in one of his journals that Pilot was once in the army, although he would probably be discharged due to his mental instability. Pilot also writes that he once had a "Blue Tiara", a headband Civilians wore to access ANNET, but he broke it because "It was a ticket. A one-way trip without a return policy". It is possible that Pilot's mental state is a direct result of him breaking it before ANNET Could fully take over his mind, resulting in mental damage.
Pilot is also known to have a suffed toy puffin friend called Mr.Kittyhawk. Mr.Kittyhawk has not been seen since Comic #53, after he sold out Pilot's Location to the alien monster Cancer. A recent illustration has shown that
SkillsSniper. Snippy thinks that Pilot attained these skills while in the army.
