Agraya is an AC pilot working for Crest Industries. She is one of the few AC pilots of the era who are neither a Raven nor affiliated with the Ravens' Ark.


As the conflict between Navis and Mirage intensifies, Crest supports Navis by having Agraya invade the forward staging base Mirage established at Abax Plain. She arrives at the base just as Crest's initial MT strike team is defeated by a Raven employed by Mirage and remarks that the enemy Raven's presence explains how the base has remained impregnable thus far. Agraya engages the Raven, vowing to show them the fate awaiting Crest's enemies. She withdraws after being overpowered in the ensuing duel, though prior to leaving she praises her opponent.[1]

Mirage later lures her into a trap at Bayload City's rooftop where she is confronted by the Raven she fought at Abax Plain. Agraya immediately realizes and accepts her predicament then battles the Raven once more, swearing that they would regret accepting Mirage's contract.[2]

If Agraya is defeated[]

When the enemy Raven gains the upper hand, Agraya acknowledges their prowess, surprised that the Raven's Ark still had such skilled pilots. Eventually, she is defeated. With Agraya's last breath, she apologizes to fellow Crest affiliate Genobee for her loss.[2]

If Agraya is victorious[]

Agraya defeats the enemy Raven but does not kill them.[2] She disappears from the public eye immediately afterwards.

Agraya is a hostile NPC in Armored Core: Nexus. She first appears in "Stop Crest Invasion Force" shortly after the Crest MTs are defeated, and once Red Star is dealt sufficient damage, she will withdraw, thus ending the mission. The player then duels her soon after in "Destroy Crest Exclusive AC". If Agraya is defeated, the debriefing states she is killed in battle, whereas the opposite leads to a report that she survives the assassination attempt, but she will neither be seen nor mentioned afterwards.

The reward for defeating Agraya in "Destroy Crest Exclusive AC" is 260,000c. The WB31B-PEGASUS dual auxiliary booster Back part is a bonus for destroying Red Star within fifty seconds.

As Agraya is an AC pilot rather than a Raven, she cannot be fought in the Free Arena.

Computer analysis[]

"Enemy AC detected. The unit equips weapons corresponding to various ranges. Adjust tactics accordingly."


The following information is "gray area" content — it may not be completely factual, and/or falls under YMMV territory.

Her strategy is to rush in on you while unloading a heck ton of punishment from her weapons, also given the fact that her weapons are geared towards close combat, it is going to hurt facing her up close. She resorts to using her shotgun or chain gun along with her grenade rifle at close range and missiles at mid-range, so to avoid her simply stay further away from her. But do note that she also loves to use Overboost to close distance rapidly, so make sure your own AC has enough mobility to evade her quickly, or you will be in for a hell of a beating. Fortunately, her AC is not built to take a lot of punishment, as she is a lighweight AC, it is very easy to crack her fragile frame. Rapid-fire close range weapons such as machine guns or shotguns do good against her, or hard-hitting weapons like the linear rifle or laser rifles can break her apart easily too. Missiles work too but she does have anti-missile extensions so they may not be very effective.
