Hari is a Lynx that appears in Armored Core: For Answer. He is ranked # 10 in Collared and is the only Collared Lynx also affiliated with ORCA.

In-Game Biography[]

One of the higher ranked independent mercenaries. Although he's a combat genius, he can only fight for short periods of time due to his unique AMS aptitude. He may have once have been affiliated with Aspina.


After Hari attacks an Arteria facility under orders from ORCA, he is quickly identified because he used Krasnaya, then expelled from Collared. Hari's involvement with ORCA prompts Collared to investigate their own Lynx.[1] A conversation between Julius Emery and Malzel implies that Hari dies in a mission given to him by the latter.[2]

His strategy is more of attack you from everywhere. He will Overboost at you if you're out of his range (Which is 700-800 M away) Since he only has the two rifles to attack with, he can't do much of other combinations than dual attack you with those. and when he gets empty, he will switch to two laser blades and attack you.


Armored Core Variable Infinity[]


  • Krasnaya means Red in Russian, which is a reflects to his AC's color.
  • Although never seen in missions, it is mentioned at several points that an Arteria Facility was assaulted around the time the Protagonist attacks Spirit of Motherwill/Cabracan - the attack left the League reeling and uncertain of what organization was responsible. As this event occurs before the Closed Plan is finally put into action, and since Krasnaya is the only ORCA NEXT that doesn't actually appear in Story Mode, it can be surmised that the LYNX responsible was indeed Hari - a conversation between Malzel, Neo Nidus and Julius Emery hints that Malzel's growing eagerness to initiate the Closed Plan led to him to take Hari 'off his leash' too early, and probably resulted in the LYNX's death.
  • Due to a translation error, it is stated that Malzel betrayed Hari. This is not the case as the Japanese version uses an idiom which says that Malzel had instead made Hari an informant, spying on Collared for ORCA. Thus, his allegiance is strictly with ORCA. The idiom used is 獅子身中の虫, lit. "Worm within the lion's body." In this case the lion referring to Collared.
  • Hari and his NEXT, Krasnaya, bear several similarities to the #11 Original Aabye and his NEXT, Memento Mori. Both LYNX have a habit of leaving a trail of mass destruction in their wake, both sport red AALIYAHs with green eyes, both dual wield their respective weapons of choice, and neither are actually encountered in the main storyline.
  • There are unused voice files in the game for Hari, suggesting that he was originally supposed to play a greater role in the campaign. He apologizes to the player for his actions, stating that ORCA does not have the luxury of choosing its methods, and expresses great regret that he will not be able to personally experience outer space upon his defeat. Given his unique AMS compatibility, as well as his unused dialogue, it's possible that Hari was intended to be the pilot of the 00-ARETHA that shows up in the hard mode of Attack Anti-Satellite Cannons.
  • Hari was also feature in a novel titled Armored Core For Embrasure which even promotes the lynx being in armored core for answer.
