|Falco Lombardi, the Ace Pilot of Team Star Fox.|
Falco Lombardi (ファルコ・ランバルディ, Faruko Ranbarudi) is an anthropomorphic member of an avian race and ace pilot of the Star Fox team. He is also a good friend and friendly rival to Fox McCloud. Falco has appeared alongside his wingmates in every Star Fox game to date, and usually retains his brash, cool, and collected behavior. Although the ace pilot, Falco is sometimes caught in situations in which he cannot escape, and must rely on Fox for assistance. Since Star Fox 64, Falco has starred in his own manga, which centers on events happening between Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Adventures.
Takaya Imamura, the creator of the members of Team Star Fox, revealed that Falco's surname was originally Rambaldi, in tribute to film special effects artist Carlo Rambaldi, whose most prominent works include the effects of the robotic Xenomorph's head in the 1979 film Alien and the design of the titular character of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Nintendo of Japan later romanized this name as Falco Lambardi, and Nintendo of America adapted this into Falco's current Italian surname, Lombardi.
Falco was born in 19 BLW. His homeworld is probably Corneria but due to a comment he made on Zoness, he may have spent some of his life there. He probably enlisted in the Cornerian Flight Academy, but dropped out and became a rogue pilot. Not much is known after that, but it could be that his life before was filled with recklessness and adventure. He then formed the Free-As-A-Bird with him as leader. He led them for a couple years, until he was asked to join team Star Fox, where he agreed, although his joining the Star Fox team may have been the result of a falling out between him and his partner, Katt Monroe in regards to irritation about always having to save her that also resulted in him quitting the gang. He had made friends with the leader Fox and was involved in numerous missions.
Falco is a playable character in All-Star Heroes.
Although Falco serves as one of the main protagonists in Star Fox: Unite, he doesn't appear as a playable character until the end of the game, during the boss battle with Andross due to his absence from the team.
In Star Fox: High School Days, the player has to try and befriend him as one of their future Star Fox members. Falco is a Goth kid and the more you talk to him the more he reveals himself as a classmate. Falco is 16-years-old in game and he is the oldest classmate you can meet. He is quite mysterious and he is the most mature of the classmates.He loves to sing a lot and he rather perform than kill. Falco eventually became famous and dropped the Goth demeanor, becoming more sarcastic and cocky.
