Personality And TraitsEdit
At 59 years-old, Daitetsu Minase is a wise, hardened veteran within the Earth Federation Army. Having participated in various wars and campaigns, his years of experience in battle makes him highly respected among pilots and Federation officials. Daitetsu had a son, but claims he had died long before the events of Original Generation. His only remaining relative is his unnamed granddaughter. Like Excellen Browning, he too has a taste for alcohol, specifically sake, and invites pilots and officers alike to sit and enjoy it with him when off-duty. A common trait seen from Daitetsu is that he is always seen holding a smoking pipe.
Daitetsu Minase began as the captain of the Hiryu battleship, with Sean Webley as the executive officer. During an exploration mission, the crew of the Hiryu encountered Aerogater Megillots, on the outskirts of Pluto. The ship suffered heavy casualties and was badly damaged, but made it safely back to Earth. When Bian Zoldark predicted of an Aerogater invasion, the Space-Noah class battleships were built, and Daitetsu would be assigned to the first of the Space-Noah Class battleships Shirogane, callsign Platinum 1. The ship would later be destroyed in the Antarctic Incident by Shu Shirakawa and his Granzon. After recovering, he is given command over the second of the Space-Noah Class battleships Hagane, callsign Steel 2.
Daitetsu would participate over the course of Original Generation in the Divine Crusaders War and the L5 Campaign, leading the Earth Federation to victory over the Divine Crusaders and Aerogaters. He was charged with quelling the outbreaks of the DC Remnants from the DC War, during Original Generation 2, and eventually, Neo Divine Crusaders. Operation Plantagenet would be his final involvement in the military, as a surprise attack by the Shadow-Mirror, and the defection of former Earth Federation officer, Lee Linjun, ended his life from an attack by the Shirogane on the Hagane. Daitetsu's legacy would be handed down to his protege, Tetsuya.
- In The Anime(Super Robot Wars OG: Inspectors), he did not die at the hands of Lee Linjun.
