This is the fourth armor from a series of 14 armors that I've designed: the "Alpha-Omega series", that have some role in a larger story (which I used to call as CUETZPALIN Mythos but is still far away from being completed).

Background Story:

DELTA
Created by Ulhaden Corp in 1978
Power: Makes user able to create replicas of his own for a limited period of time
Current user: Klaus Neumann (GER)

Currently owned by the private institution known as AXIS Military Academy, which mission is protect Tredius from demon-related threats (actually, an initiative by Ulhaden Corp & ABEL Inc, two major weapon industries that have created the Alpha-Omega series armors. The AXIS is more likely an academy for young bounty hunters who're unknowingly testing a likely inhuman technology, and doing the firty job for the UN to "cleanse" everything dangerous that escapes its hidden slave pits).

Klaus Neumann, born in 1991, had a past shrouded in mystery. Abandoned by his parents from an early age, he spent his first years in an orphanage held by a Catholic Church abbey on Avignon, then being transferred to an orphanage in Teutonia when he was six, as "he caused much trouble among the other kids in Avignon". On Teutonia, he found certain difficulty to find adoptive parents, as "he continued to cause trouble" (the managers of both orphanages would never admit their lack of capability in taking care of Klaus, who's far smarter than most kids, and because of that didn't take orders so seriously). He tried to find his parents and exact revenge on them, not accepting the version that his parents died, for he didn't remember any of it, and he felt some strange connection of his to another girl from the orphanage of Avignon, whose name he unfortunately lost. During this time, he lived on the streets as a con artist and more than once has been involved with struggles between small gangs of "skinheads", both antifascists and nationalists. He left the orphanage for a squat, and has managed to conciliate his life with studies at a public institution for most time, until 2006, when he's been given the opportunity to join the AXIS Military Academy as a promotional offer. That was odd for him, who was used to poverty and not something "as luxurious as the AXIS seemed to be", however in no time he perceived the AXIS wasn't a mere high school, and its students weren't just used to science, but also to the hardships of a heavy military education, that despite incompatible with his former way of life, eventually getting to his nerves sometimes, he learned to enjoy. He got the taste for hurting others, and he began to question less what the AXIS managers saw on him or why they were "merciful enough to offer him to join it" - even though its director, Ephraim Frére, made sure it wouldn't be nice for Neumann, actually, Frére seemingly detested him for no apparent reason, a matter he didn't take suspiciously, mostly because he's been supported by Jorgen Zimmermann, the CEO of Ulhaden Corp since he managed to defeat the other students who were fighting for the rights of use the DELTA armor on official AXIS missions.

Klaus has become close friends with an older agent of AXIS, known as "Jack Black", who's the agent officially assigned to the CHI armor, and on several missions for the AXIS he's learned through his friend the joy of killing. He also showed some respect for the current user of the Ni armor, Lana Bridges, a girl his age who's become a "Magister" (the highest ranking an AXIS student can get, who has the right to lead other agents on missions), and a rivalry with Marvin Chad, the current user of the Alpha armor, even though Marvin didn't acknowledged it. This rivalry has increased since 2009, when both showed some interest for the new student, the prodigious Nina Roux, who's defeated the other competitors looking for the rights of using the Upsilon armor, and later a Magister herself. But Nina's become a close friend of Anna G.W (the current user of Lambda), who avoided Neumann because of his friend, Black. Klaus Neumann knows when and how to be kind, however he's let himself to hate privileged people (and for privilege he doesn't mean "rich people", but those who according to him have either an easy life or get easy opportunities, because of how they act or how they look like) and he keeps secret desires on his mind. He's a student who acknowledges there's no righteousness in killing, even though he enjoys it, and he also hates "bureaucracies that makes killing look like wrong on the missions". He's a bounty hunter, and claims himself to be one, what kind of shames other students like Drake Sonck (the current user of Epsilon), who says the AXIS Agents should "behave more like soldiers than as sell-swords". But Sonck wouldn't understand the harsh conditions which Neumann had, and another thing is, Neumann hates when people try to pity him because he had no parents for most of his life (a trait he shares with Nina). Besides a bounty hunter, he's a survivor, and a renegade. And despite he believes the truth about his family isn't important anymore, it's never been closer to him than during his time at the AXIS.
