Team Skylark

Team Skylark is an all-female team that represents the sweet but fierce side of the IG-1. Since its inception in 2029, the three pilots have traditionally been female. In the IG-1, no other team surpasses the amount of media attention that Team Skylark receives. Not only does Team Skylark appear in sports magazines, but the team is also featured in fashion magazines from time to time. As a result, there are not only male fans but also many female fans who follow them.

The first of the three pilots is the much adored "princess" of the IGPX, Fantine Valjean. The other two pilots are Elissa Doolittle and Jessica Darlin. To the media, the three of them are like three blooming goddesses of beauty who fully blossom out on the track for fans to enjoy. Fear not their charm, because when it comes to how they fare while on the track, their hand-to-hand fighting and overall battle technique is not lacking. Their main sponsor is the cosmetics company Radiosity Sealant. The three pilots are also signed as the primary media promoters for the company.

In keeping with the team's all-female style, the team's three mechs are painted in soft shades of pink, blue, and yellow. The basic theme behind the design of the mechs was to mimic a flowing stream of water, and in races their tactics are relatively conventional, becoming masters at utilizing the slipstream of their own mechs. Their indispensable teamwork is not their only highlight, but when it comes to finding a burst of speed near the finish line, Team Skylark has mechs not to be taken for granted.
