Makanai is the former representative of Arbrau who has been negotiating with Kudelia Aina Bernstein to relax the regulations on Martian half-metal resources. Suspected of corruption, he resigned his post as representative and self-exiled to a remote island in Oceania Federation to observe Earth Sphere events and quietly seeking the right opportunity to regain his political power.
Personality & Skills
A wily veteran of Earth sphere political scene, Makanai hides his true color as a kind and jolly old man in front of the young corps of Tekkadan. In fact, he secretly rejoiced at the arrival of Kudelia Aina Bernstein, the so-called "Maiden of Revolution" who would not only upset the balance of Gjallarhorn-dominated Earth sphere politics, but also an opportunity to regain his own political power within Arbrau. After meeting with Kudelia and Orga Itsuka first hand at Oceania, Makanai gambled his political fortune with the young ones and proposed a win-win deal for all parties by escorting him to Arbrau's capital Edmonton for re-election as prime minister.
Despite his departure from Arbrau's politics, Makanai still wields tremendous influence among Arbrau Members of Parliament, with Lasker Alesi being one of his strongest supporters he can count on to lobby other MPs to for his re-election as Arbrau's prime minister instead of his rival Henri Fleurs.
Makanai was forced to resign from the post of Arbrau's prime minister due to the alleged corruption charges. He liaised with Kudelia Aina Bernstein and Tekkadan to meet him at his safe haven in Oceania for future action. Upon their arrival, Makanai convinced them to escort him to Edmonton for re-election as prime minister to give Kudelia a chance to re-negotiate Martian self-governance and economic independence. Despite the interference from Gjallarhorn throughout the journey from Alasaka to Edmonton, Makanai was able to attend the Arbrau parliamentary convention at Edmonton in time and re-elected as prime minister.
