Okay, you can hide out back in the cargo hold. I'll take you as far as I can, but if we get caught, you're on your own. Understand?

Overview Image Gallery



The Atlas Pilot, named Fenix Atar in the commentary, was a character who first appeared in "No Safe Haven", when he agreed to smuggle Weiss Schnee from Atlas to Mistral with his airship. He died when the airship crashed en route due to a Grimm attack.

Personality[edit | edit source]

His demeanor was pleasant, and the two of them conversed on his cargo plane easily. However, he was capable of drawing a hard line when he must. He also admitted to smuggling Dust from Atlas.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

He wore a white uniform with black gloves, vest and black chaps over white pants. He wore a white helmet with a black visor that concealed his eyes and hair.

History[edit | edit source]

He agreed to smuggle Weiss from Atlas to Mistral with his airship in return for her money.

A mayday came in from a flight under attack by Grimm, who lost their Huntress. He prioritized his and Weiss' safety and their mission to stay under the radar over the people in distress. He was not without compassion when he informed Weiss of this. In "Dread in the Air", a swarm of Lancers attacked his ship, and it crashed. One of the animators, Kim Newman, stated the crash killed him.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In commentary, he has been named Fenix Atar.
    • Fenix is a bastardized version of phoenix, a mythological bird of fire. Atar is Persian for fire or lightning.
  • Miles Luna has stated that there was cut dialogue of the Pilot mentioning having a boyfriend back in Atlas. While they wanted to have more LGBTQ+ representation, they were concerned that their first confirmed LGBTQ+ character would be killed off so quickly.[2]
