- "Trigger, time to show the other guys that we get wet, wild, and do dirty, dirty things."
- ― Clown to Trigger
Clown, along with Golem Squadron, carry out the defense of Fort Grays Island following a surprise attack by Erusian bombers, recognizing Trigger's potential as a pilot. Both Mage and Golem Squadron then take part in an opration to halt the Erusian advance on the Scofields Plateau. During the operation, one of Golem's pilots expresses concern about civilians being caught in the fighting, to which Clown grimly replies that it is the nature of war for innocents to get hurt.
Following the success of Operation Eastern Wind, Mage and Golem take part in the IUN offensive to retake the International Space Elevator, but they are thwarted by the sudden arrival of the Arsenal Bird and are forced to retreat with heavy casualties.
Having been informed that former Osean president Vincent Harling is hiding in the space elevator and awaiting extraction, Mage Squadron becomes part of the operation to rescue him. Clown's wingman, Trigger, arrives ahead of the main force to suppress the anti-aircraft defenses before the extraction team moves in, but it soon becomes a desperate battle, with narrowly Harling escaping in an Erusian V-22 with his escort. However, during the escape, Harling's aircraft is destroyed by a missile and Trigger is accused of murdering him. Clown attempts to defend Trigger by pointing out the chaos of the battlefield and the close proximity of the drones to Harling's Osprey, but Trigger is nonetheless court-marshalled and transferred to a penal squadron. Clown's fate is unknown after the events of the mission.
