Wynne D Fanchon is a Lynx appearing in Armored Core: For Answer. She is ranked #3 in Collared and is the Interior Union's main Lynx. She is famous across the battlefield for being an excellent Lynx who has never failed a mission. Her reputation has earned her the nickname "GA's disaster" and to many frontline soldiers, the "Brass Maiden". A proud Lynx, she despises those simply in the business for killing. Her craft, the NEXT Reiterpallasch, is lightweight but strikes hard.


Wynne D. is one of the new Lynx that sprang up after the Lynx War. She builds up a strong reputation throughout her career and even manages to place highly in Collared's ranks.


  • "Defeat Wonderful Body"
    • This is Wynne D Fanchon and Reiterpallasch here. Wonderful Body's position confirmed. Commencing attack.
    • What is he doing? His NEXT keeps stopping.
    • Looks like mission accomplished. You call that a Lynx? It looks like he was malfunctioning.
  • "Defeat The Spirit of Motherwill"
    • Post-mission dialogue:
      • What about the ones who attacked Arteria? They managed to launch a surprise attack on a Cradle facility in broad daylight, with complete impunity. Their leaders must be punished severely.
  • "Defeat Unknown NEXT+No Count"
    • This is Wynne D Fanchon and Reiterpallasch here. Enemy NEXT confirmed. Commencing attack.
    • Looks like the four-legged NEXT is the leader. I'll take him. You hit the reverse-legged one.
    • Idiot Lynx. Go to hell and see if I care.
    • Looks like mission accomplished. Irregulars. I wonder whose leash they're on.
  • "Defend Line Ark"
    • Post-mission dialogue:
      • Maybe, maybe not. Something about this whole thing stinks.
      • Hmph. So you think you can take their place? What about Gerald?
      • Nothing. It's just that old fogeys aren't as much use to us now, are they?
  • "Attack Anti-Satellite Cannons"
    • Post-mission dialogue:
      • No... I'll take care of it. They're too drunk on their own pride. We can't let this mission drag on.
  • "Defeat the Main ORCA Forces"
    • This is Wynne D Fanchon and Reiterpallasch here. Let's take down the enemy NEXTS. No point in messing around.
    • All those fancy maneuvers won't help you in hell. Time to end this.
    • ORCA Brigade...those laughable idiots only care about firepower.
    • Mission complete. Looks like mission accomplished. That's one massive gravestone. They shouldn't have any complaints.
    • Post-mission dialogue:
      • Is there a reason for this?
      • Hmph. I guess being stonewalled is better than being lied to. I suppose they're going to pretend this is all to protect the civilians, right?
      • Of course I do. Otherwise, aren't we just in the business of killing?
  • "Defend Arteria Cranium"
    • Briefing dialogue:
      • This is Wynne D Fanchon, I need your assistance. I want you to join me in a mission. We need to deal with the ORCA forces who are planning to attack the Arteria Cranium. Without the Cranium, the Cradles will lose their wings. Many of the people who've spent their lives breathing clean air wouldn't survive on the polluted surface. The League is aware of this, and is secretly complicit in ORCA's plan. This request comes from me personally. It won't be much, but we can pay you for your services. That's all. I'm not going to waste time with fancy speeches. Give me your answer soon.
    • The Cranium's core is just up ahead. I am in your debt. Thank you.
    • Humanity? I don't see humanity anywhere, Otsdarva.
    • I'm not done yet! Reiterpallasch! We're not finished yet!
    • Sorry. In the end, I always rely on you.
  • "Attack on Arteria Cranium"
    • You don't hesitate to kill for 'humanity', do you. Then lay down your own life. Like Thermidor before you.
    • Stand firm, Roy.
    • Roy, forgive me. It's all in your hands now.
    • Hmph. Roy Saaland... a good guy? It doesn't suit you.
    • To treasure a that something to laugh at?
    • Everything is twisted. You. This world. All of it.
  • "Occupation of Arteria Carpals"
    • You kill too many.
    • You're dead. But it brings no comfort to the innocent lives you've already snatched away.


Wynne takes great pride in her work as a Lynx. She sets high standards for her fellow Lynx and has scorn for those whom she deems unworthy of the title. After defeating Don Colonel, Wynne openly mocks him for his poor performance. When Patch the Good Luck announces his surrender and begs for mercy, she calls him an idiot and condemns his actions.

Despite her pride as a mercenary, Wynne greatly dislikes those who kill needlessly and excessively. While she is not adverse to killing for the sake of her mission, she is angered by those who commit murder for the sake of it. This is shown when she choses to protect the Cradles out of her own free will, instead of being ordered by the Interior Union or the League. If she and Strayed successfully defeat ORCA in the League Path, Wynne rebukes Maximilian Thermidor and ORCA's reasons for their extremist actions. If she is unsuccessful in stopping the Closed Plan in the ORCA Path, her final words as she condemns Strayed's actions show that she sincerely cherishes life. Her dedication to this ideology is enough to motivate her to team up with other high-ranking Lynx in a last-ditch attempt to stop an omnicidal Strayed and Old King in the Destruction Path.

She has also shown a soft spot for like-minded individuals. She thanks Strayed if they decide to help her protect the Cradles. She also has friendly banter with Roy Saaland and apologizes to him if she is defeated by Strayed before Roy in the ORCA Path.

NEXT Reiterpallasch[]

NEXT Schematic ACFA Reiterpallasch

NEXT Reiterpallasch.

Wynne D's NEXT, Reiterpallasch, is a lightweight Y11-LATONA model with hard hitting power. It is equipped with a lightweight KAPTEYN railgun, which ensures long-range firepower, a back-mounted GEMMA automatic pulse cannon to pressure enemies, an ACRUX Dual Hi-Laser cannon of tremendous power, and a high-powered ELTANIN laserblade, rounding out her craft. However, much like other lightweight units, the NEXT has limited defense power and is easily stunned, though its complement of energy weapons do destroy the majority of NEXTs, making Reiterpallasch a well-rounded NEXT with both speed and power, but lacking in defense.

The ACRUX can deal a large amount of damage even to NEXTs with high energy defenses. However, due to the high EN consumption of Wynne's weapons, it is less mobile than NEXTs such as Stasis, being unable to dodge as frequently. Reiterpallasch's low shell defense and stability mean that the craft is weak to most shell weapons and can be stunned easily by cannons and bazookas.

Wynne is known as "GA's Disaster" for Reiterpallasch's energy weapon arsenal that is effective against GA's machines which typically have low energy defenses and consequently for her many victories against them.[1]

She can be hired as a consort in "Defeat Wonderful Body" and "Defeat Unknown NEXT+No Count", taking 50% of mission completion compensation per mission.

She is a major player in all three endings to the game: If the player chooses to ally with ORCA, resulting in the ORCA Path, she is one of the NEXTs faced in "Attack on Arteria Cranium" and also one of the four NEXTs in "Occupation of Arteria Carpals" (Five on Hard Mode) if the player chooses the Destruction Path. If the player takes the League Path, then Wynne will be their ally in both "Defeat the Main ORCA Forces" and "Defend Arteria Cranium".
