Black Eagle, or tipyeléhne, is part of a rouge group against UltraTech, most of which is made up of former members of the company. In an attack, Eagle was captured by UltraTech in full view of his brother, Thunder. As Eagle was presumed dead, Thunder came to an agreement with ARIA, a high-ranking member of UltraTech, to serve under them in exchange for Eagle’s remains.

Orchid would later reveal to Thunder that Eagle was still alive and that Fulgores are the result of UltraTech’s experimentations with Eagle’s brain waves. In ARIA’s words, Eagle is one of the most valuable lifeforms on Earth as Eagle’s existence has been modified by both UltraTech and Glacius.


Much like his brother Thunder, Eagle is a traditional Native American warrior from the Nez Perce tribe. His stoic demeanor and focus on enforcing a balance between the earth and its inhabitants give him an air of a wise-old man, especially in the eyes of his younger brother.


A strong zoning character with rushdown tendencies. He is one of the best Rushdown characters in the game, thanks to his bird companion being able to lock stun opponent in the approach. His bow then opens up setup strategies and increased zoning. But he lacks good defensive options and no reversals whatsoever.


Eagle features a mixture of Sci-fi, almost cyberpunk-style clothes, and visuals alongside tribal Native American symbolism. The standout element in this fusion is his bird companion, which is made entirely of metal. Eagle has a striking scar on his face that glows intensely as well.
