Fumihiko Makabe (真壁 史彦)Fumihiko Makabe becomes the new commander of Alvis in the second episode, when the previous commander dies. For such a strong and thoughtful man, he is surprisingly quiet and kind-hearted. Like all of his generation, he hates the Festum and once wanted an all-out war with them—but fatherhood has been very good for him. He raises Kazuki alone, as his wife Akane was killed long ago protecting him from the Festum. Although Akane was a higher ranking officer than him (he took her last name upon their marriage), he is also a seasoned soldier who has shed blood—both Festum and human—and always keeps it a priority to prevent the children from having to do the same.
Fumihiko and Kazuki live in a small house that doubles as a ceramics workshop where Fumihiko makes traditional, Japanese clay pots to sell for a living. He hates having to send his son out to fight but tries to keep a strong front to give Kazuki as much stability and reassurance as possible. He has a healthy respect for the intellect and abilities of Minashiro Soushi, despite his youth, and relies on him to help Kazuki along during this difficult time.
