Old King is a Lynx in that appears in Armored Core: For Answer. The Rank 04 Lynx in the ORCA Brigade, he joins them after his rebel group Liliana suffers heavy losses and because of their similar anti-Cradle system beliefs.[1]

In-Game Biography[]

Led the former armed rebel group Liliana. Isolating himself from other ORCA to maintain his 'outsider' status, his Algebra based reverse-legged is armed with a heavy shotgun. Rumored to be connected with #2 Sadhana

Information[]

A genocidal maniac who embarked on a Plan to destroy the Cradles, The Raven aligns with him in the third ending of Armored Core: For Answer. Old King along with Strayed are forced to fight four (five in hard mode) NEXTs in the mission Occupation of Arteria Carpals. Although at first he seemed to resent Strayed calling him a lapdog, during his final moments he considered Strayed a friend. If the Player chooses the League Path, they will fight Old King in the mission Defend Cradle 03. It is unknown what he does if the player chooses the ORCA path but presumably he tries to destroy Cradle 03 regardless and is destroyed by another Lynx.

NEXT Lisa[]

NEXT Lisa

Old King's green and orange NEXT Lisa is a close to mid-ranged machine. It sports a shotgun and a rifle in its hands. It also has a chaingun and missile launcher on its back. Due to Lisa having both core and reverse joint leg parts from the EKHAZAR, it is also suited for aerial combat, and Old King takes advantage of that.

Trivia[]

  • Based on the emblem and NEXT name, it could be an inspiration to Lisa del Giocondo
  • Though with some different components and weaponry, his NEXT seems to reflect Sadhanna's, further reinforcing his connection to him.
  • Although it is possible for him to survive the final mission of the destruction path to its end, nothing changes in the final cutscene and it can be assumed he is supposed to die.
