Layer as she appears in
Mega Man X: Unit 49.
|First Appearance||Prologue: Doomsday|
|Affiliations and Positions|
Layer is one of the three Navigators that aid the 17th Elite Unit Maverick Hunters from the main headquarters. She is specialized in Reploid and Mechaniloid development and analyzes scan data sent back by Hunters quickly due to her high processing powers, being able to determine the strenghts and weaknesses of a target.
Layer tries to keep cool and professional while working, although she seems to get a flustered when working with Zero, indicating she could have a crush on him. They got closer after Vile's defeat and she has become his main Navigator.
After the Jakob's IncidentEdit
On June 18th, X and Zero are chasing a trio of Mavericks in a city near the headquarters and the communication between them and the Navigators is being disrupted by jamming. However, Layer manages to analyze the DNA program of the three Reploids and it seemed like they were exact copies of each other, but they were not New Generation Reploids. The jamming was aggravated and the communication shut down. It was in that moment when Saturn warped himself, along with Shad and Gigantex and began the Operation Doomsday. In the following minutes, the headquarters would be completely destroyed and only Alia would manage to escape safely to the underground shelters. Layer and Pallette were struck by wreckage in the way and became stuck. A day later, the rescue teams found them nearly dead, with damages beyond repair in their bodies. They have been taken to a medical facility and had their bodies reconstructed.
On June 23rd, Layer and Pallette had been almost recovered completely, and they asked to talk with Alia through a video transmission. Alia had to give them the news that nearly all the personnel had died in the attack, Axl was kidnapped and Signas disappeared, leaving no traces. Although Pallette was heated up to come back and help beating the Mavericks, Layer reminded her that they still needed to recover. She tried comforting Alia and said they would be with her soon.
