Commander K. Starling
Commander K. Starling was the pilot of the G.F.S. Tyr and a member of Squad Bravo of the GFMC Task Force Herakles. While in pursuit of an unknown Space Pirate frigate, a storm in Aether's atmosphere necessitated Starling make an emergency landing on the planet's surface. By the time Samus arrives, some eight days later, the pilot and the rest of Squad Bravo are dead.
