I want him for selene x helios, for sure. He would be Helios' final lover if he is taken.
Selene is the first romantic interest in the Starfighter: Eclipse game, and is by far the sweetest romantic path to go. He and Helios are initially paired together in the Fighter / Navigator team. They train hard and work well together, and having a budding romantic interest for one another helped their bond grow stronger. He would lay his life down for Selene, even without it having to be part of his job in the duo. Selene is one of the smartest Navigators, though he tends to get jealous of Abel's capabilities and feels inadequete. However, Selene is a hard worker and does not give up. He doesn't always acknowledge his hard work until Helios praises him, so he can be kind of adorably modest. Regardless of feeling like he isn't as good sometimes, he's the only one who worked really hard to fix the problems that occur in the game's story (without giving away spoilers). Essentially, his skill and intelligence helped save the day, and Helios is in love with everything about him. Selene is his world, he thinks he's amazing and he is infatuated with him.
He is part of the Fighter duo assigned to the Tiberius starfighter. He was saved after a Colteron attack on the Alliance Space Station, losing his left eye and his original Navigator in the battle. After being reassigned to a new Navigator, their bond was not quite as strong and it seemed they would need to work on that. Praxis is one of the tallest Fighters, he is a strong and protective type. He has a serious dislike for Cain and tries to sway Abel into not trusting him. In the Eclipse game, Praxis was one of the teams who boarded the Derelict alien spacecraft. He is an all around helpful guy with somewhat of a passive and caring personality. I do ship praxis x helios because I feel like they could have a positive and friendly relationship or bromance, maybe something intimate. He's the type of man who wants to help others and has good intentions, as well as protect those he cares for.
The sneaky bad boy surrounded in mystery. For whatever reason, Deimos is mute by choice. The times he actually chooses to speak are far and few between. Even his voice is quiet, sometimes a whisper. Deimos is also deceptively violent; the quiet type who carries around a collapsible knife and uses it many times to threaten others when he wants to prove a point or deter others from crossing him. And he really isn't afraid to use it. Helios has a strong curiosity for Deimos because he seems to hang around Cain all the time, and he's just a mysterious person. He also had the feeling he was up to something because of his constant sneaking around. If he is persistent enough, he can follow Deimos and see him monitoring Abel for Cain. I do slightly ship helios x deimos, just because I've seen the potential they can have in his romantic path in the game. Deimos is closed-off and doesn't let people in easily, but Helios is persistent and wants to help him. They would be the type of relationship with rough patches, but after Deimos trusts him, they could be sweet. They could have an interesting friendship that just builds off of trust.
Say hello to the Alpha Daddy Fighter. It's fairly clear in the series that he cares deeply for Keeler, but I want him because Helios could bond with his immediate commander. I would also love to dabble in some encke x helios if that was ever anyone's interest, it doesn't have to be intimate. They could just bond because Encke is, for being a tough leader, also a respectable man with a good heart. He wants nothing but the best for his boys, at least that's what it seems like to me, and he seems like he would help them succeed if possible. I'm sure they would have a chance to develop a different relationship in this new universe, and I feel like Helios would confide in him more and consider him a companion if Encke was around.
I don't particularly ship these two, but it would still be nice to have Keeler around. Helios would like to see any familiar face, and Keeler is just brimming with positive energy. He is the sunshine boy who also has a mysterious past that I won't spoil here. He is highly skilled, and always seems to beam with friendly vibes. Helios would feel at ease having him around, and since Keeler is so skilled, he would feel like they have a better chance at unveiling the truths behind this new universe.
Hayden is the path to go if you want to watch the world burn, be mean to absolutely every social link ever, but be rewarded with a domineering, dominant Commander who just wants to have a good puppy kneel and do his dirty work. I have a guilty pleasure for hayden x helios, but I obviously don't play Helios as the dark and spiteful side. I would, however, be willing to explore that in an AU. In the canon universe of Elysion, however, I would enjoy having Helios play a good boy who respects and wants to help out his Commander. I'd also guiltily enjoy Hayden being cordial but subtley domineering towards him like he tends to be. Make that boy sweat. Anyway, realistically, Helios would feel relieved to see him here and their relationship could develop in an interesting way. Now that the circumstances are much different. I'm sure Helios would report to him his findings so far, and he might be coerced into playing spy for Hayden if it's dealing with anyone other than his allies.
There are a few other characters I haven't mentioned here, and it would still be nice to see them! I just chose the ones I wanted to see the most. If anyone feels inclined to take a character not on this list, just let me know and I'll put them up!
