Admiral Orestes Nostromo was a Greek-born Veteran of the Crystite Wars. Described by Aris Holden as a national hero of the European Union, Nostromo was eventually appointed to the position of military overseer on the CMS Arclight due to the Centauri Accord.[1]

His name seems to be a combination of references to the Greek mythological character Orestes, and the novel Nostromo

Crystite WarsEdit

Nostromo was born in Athens, Greece shortly before the Firefall event. On holiday in London with his father at the beginning of Firefall, Nostromo was unable to return to Greece while it was conquered by Russia. Upon his eighteenth birthday, he joined the European Union Military in hopes of freeing his homeland and was stationed aboard the E.U.S. Morningstar as a bomb-chaser. Piloting an F-85 Remora, Nostromo made a name for himself in the war, personally participating in the liberation of Athens.[2]

CMS ArclightEdit

After the discovery of Alpha Prime, Nostromo was stationed aboard the CMS Arclight for its maiden voyage. It it unknown if he was still stationed there during its crash.[3]
