People never know when to cut and run. It's like they freeze in the headlights, when the future is bearing down on them. They watch it coming, watch their death flying in at at fraction-drive speed.

Ethan is a bounty hunter aboard Erlin's Eye and one of the characters players can interact with throughout each cycle. Below his name, Ethan can be seen described as a "Cynical bounty hunter."
