The boy in blue was promoted to Lieutenant shortly after the SDF-1 returned to earth, and got his own VF-1J after his marriage to Miriya. I can only imagine that the matching paint pattern was Miriya's idea, I mean come on Max... give Miriya her purse back and grow a set!
In gaming terms, Max will cost you 10 pts and comes with a +1 GN and the Prescient skill which allows Max to re-roll all of his Dodge rolls that fail (no single roll can be re-rolled more than once). If Max is 4" or less from his fem-fatal Miriya Sterling, he gains her Aggressive trait allowing Max to re-roll all his Strike rolls (no single roll can be re-rolled more than once).
