A Sergeant in a Chinese company stationed on Catalina Island was an Avatar Operator. During the Sino-American War of 2117 he helped to defend the island from a U.S.F-27 attack. He succeeded in placing his avatar in the cockpit of an F-27 and forced Real onto the pilot. With that, the Operator had control of the pilot's senses and succeeded in fooling him into crashing the jet. While preventing the pilot from attacking, the Operator was disappointed since he failed, at the last second, to get the pilot to crash into a Korean takeout place across the street from a Los Angeles Police Station.
