Personal Details
"I'll always be available if you need it. Alright? It's sort of like my job to make sure you're happy- not that I don't want to make you happy myself! Ha ha ha…"

Paris-Alexander Macquarie (or Mac to his friends) is a UEF Air Commodore and Alphonse Wellesley's XO. He helps Alphonse coordinate and command his forces on the battlefield. He's also a pretty deft negotiator, easily likeable and accommodating- a role that he has only grown more skilled with over time due to Alphonse often sending him to formal functions or meetings in Alphonse's place. Macquarie also serves as something of a morale officer, making sure that Alphonse's Eva Pilots are happy, healthy and unburdened of problems.

Macquarie, like Alphonse, was a Companion produced by the NeoAlexander Program. His parents were officers in the Canadian military, which seems to have influenced the decision to place Macquarie into the NeoAlexander Program. Within the Program he proved to be a decent, if unexceptional candidate. He shared a dormitory with Alphonse, which helped foster their relationship. Indeed, Alphonse would often use Macquarie as a staff officer during the mock battles that were routine in the later years of the Program; Macquarie's by-the-book approach to warfare, coupled with his useful ability to soothe out interpersonal drama and turn a mob of jealous, surly adolescents into a workable team were both considered valuable assets by Alphonse.

Despite his rather low-key, unassuming demeanor, Macquarie's more than he seems. According to Alphonse, from the time Macquarie was a child he's responded to danger and challenge in a baffling, unusually consistent way: he talks about the threat, discusses how much it unsettles him (typically with a tremor in his voice), then proceeds to demonstrate an utter lack of regard for anything he's just said. He's been known to describe, his voice shaking with fear, the military strength of an incoming force, even though he doesn't so much as tremble for the entire encounter. Indeed, despite everything Macquarie is something of a thrill seeker, and is known for enjoying fast cars (and other velocity-inclined vehicles, such as AC Suits) and speed races.

Starting in mid-2016, Macquarie began to take a special interest in Ayanami San. It started with him merely noticing that she seemed to be under a greater level of duress than other pilots, often becoming violently ill after battles and reacting poorly both physically and mentally to the constant defeats she suffered. San appreciated his attention, and the two struck up a friendship. For Macquarie this friendship has turned into romantic interest, and he currently sports something of a crush on San. The two have been seen going on dates here and there. That said, Macquarie is unfortunate enough to have a romantic rival- Soren Burnie, Alphonse's Logistics Officer and a fellow Companion, who has shown quite a lot of interest in San himself.
