"When you return to your ship, you'll have a new pilot. He's a Hex-Core alien named Ne'Ban. We got him in an officer exchange program. He's some kind of muckety-muck on his home planet and the brass want him kept out of harm's way. You've got the quietest patrol, so you're it."
- Sector Commander Hawkins

Ne'Ban is a character in Unreal II: The Awakening.

Bio Edit

"Ne'Ban is the middle son of a Hex-Core Potentate. They thought they were parking him out in the boonies, but now they're afraid his royal hiney is gonna get hurt."
- Aida

Ne'Ban is a Hex-Core prince and pilot of the TCA Atlantis during the time of Unreal II: The Awakening. He's on loan to the TCA through a personnel exchange program.

His personality is innocent and somewhat naive, and his command of the English language is rather imperfect, causing him to be something of the game's comic relief. He speaks 500 different languages, but is uncomfortable speaking English.

After participating in an officer exchange program the TCA were sent Ne'Ban. Because of his status on his home planet, the TCA chose to station him on the Atlantis, it being being the quietest patrol available. Because of his sheltered upbringing he has been shielded from life and danger and therefore not allowed to participate or accomplish anything of significance.

Once Atlantis's mission becomes dangerous Sector Commander Hawkins wants Ne'Ban to return to safety, but he prefers to stay on board after having led a sheltered life until then.
