Ryu Hijikata (56) CV: Unshou Ishizuka
Commander, UN Cosmo Force Space Defense Command.
With the UN Cosmo Force Lunar Front Army and air defense squadrons of all countries’ surface forces under his command, he is in charge of Earth homeworld defense, with lunar orbit having been made the absolute defensive perimeter.
Although he was a diehard fleet commander with a razor-sharp strategic mind, he once served as commandant of Cosmo Navy Officer Training School when he sensed the urgent need for manpower training as talented people were steadily being lost in battle in Garmillas attacks.
Some years later, he took up the post of Commander, UN Cosmo Force Space Defense Command at Todo’s behest.
He and Okita have been best friends since their days at the Space Defense College.
