Staccato Raylong (スタッカート=レイロング Sutakkāto Reirongu) is a captain[1] of the Legitimacy Kingdom and an ace fighter pilot, codenamed Burning Alpha (バーニング・アルファ Bāningu Arufa).[2]


In the light novels, Staccato's appearance hasn't been described and is largely hidden by his flight helmet.[3][4] In the anime, Staccato has light brown hair and dark blue eyes.[1]


Stacatto loves dangerous or even full-on suicidal stunts, which is what made him become a pilot. Despite living in an era where Objects rule the battlefield and the air force has been relegated to mere support, he still desires to play the lead role sometimes.[2][5] He displays a pretentious way of speaking when talking to an enemy pilot, taunting them several times over the radio as they fight.[6]

He's a fan of classical music.[6]


Stacatto became a pilot out of love for danger.[2]


An Audition WarEdit

During the 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion's operation against the Mass Driver Conglomerate in the Amazon District Staccato contacted Froleytia Capistrano, suggesting that he and the other pilots could scatter smart landmines around Amazon City to block the enemy's escape but Froleytia refused to contaminate their own land with mines, as even if smart mines are designed to be able to be detonated remotely after a conflict is over they could have that safety device fail.[7][1]

He later flew low through the city at high speeds to dodge the enemy's anti-air lasers and dropped a 500kg bomb into the rubble that had fallen on the Baby Magnum's float and immobilized the Object.[2][5]

Dominion 70%Edit

Staccato participated in the Legitimacy Kingdom's operation at the Ame-no-Darin and engaged in a dogfight with Sky Blue's ace pilot, Mariydi Whitewitch. Neither ace managed to take down the other; Stacatto's aircraft was damaged and Mariydi was saved from a lock by one of her wingmates.[8]

Skills and AbilitiesEdit

Stacatto Raylong is one of the few remaining recognized fighter aces in the world, thus being one of the best pilots alive. He's infamous for using a delta-wing fighter that looks like a beautiful sword and was created by removing all but the absolute necessities from the flying machine. He's known as a steel grim reaper who supposedly prefers using inconvenient semi-active targeting and will occasionally toy with the enemy fighters by “redoing the targeting” of missiles that have flown off in the wrong direction.[6]

He was skilled enough to fly at 1200kph through Amazon City, a city riddled with countless buildings and complexly crisscrossing power lines, to drop a 500kg bomb into the rubble immobilizing the Baby Magnum.[2][5]
