Axel Reichert, callsign Schwan, is a former Belkan Air Force pilot.
At some point prior to the Belkan War, Reichert took part in various conflicts around the world, creating an impressive war record. He was given the nickname "The Swan" for having never taken a hit.
On May 12, 1995, Reichert defended Solis Ortus from the invading Allied Forces, before being shot down by the Galm Team. Following the war's conclusion, he retired from the air force and worked for a small nation as a mercenary, suppressing any coup d'état movements in the region.
