Michel Volban de Cabelle

Michel Volban de Cabellemdashthe figurehead of the People039s Army. She is actually the sister of the real Michel Volban who has disappeared in the war with Vetti. She had her own back scarred with a Xshaped mark in order to imitate her brother039s scar which was flashbacked after being revealed as a woman to Cleo039s crew. A man resembling her brother was part of the attack force that infiltrated the glass battleship. This man was emotionless brainwashed and was constantly attacking Michel but she still believed he was her brother. In the end when Cleo and her brother was about to be sucked out into the depths of space she chose to save Cleo and said that man was no brother of hers. At the end of the episode it was shown that the man was her real brother Michel with an Xshaped scar of his back. Michel039s personality is evident because of her past. She had little contact with her deceased mother her mother dying months after she was born and her father being home rarely. She learned to fight from her brother who had become a major role model in her life. She loved fencing and wished to be like her brothermdashwhich may explain her tomboyish attitude. After her father had seen her fencing with her brother and seeing that she surpassed him she was ordered to be more like a lady of a royal house. After that incident she vowed to herself that she would be and become a proper lady. But after her father039s death and her brother039s death during the major battle in the beginning of the series she renounces her identity and becomes her brother in order to save the People039s Army destruction. In order to do that though she chooses to truly become her brother by gaining a Xshaped scar on her back like her brother had once gotten from a battle with Vetti in a tournament and also renouncing her real name which is Racine Blance. All the effort to act as quotMichelquot was due to her love for him which was beyond sibling love.
