Adam Casey was a United States Air Force Captain and the first pilot to test pilot the Jaeger, Brawler Yukon.[1]


After Caitlin Lightcap and Jasper Schoenfeld are given the funding they needed to proceed with implementing Lightcap’s Pons concept with the Jaegers, Adam Casey becomes the first test subject to attempt to pilot Brawler Yukon.

He barely manages to move it before the neural load delivered to his mind proves too much to handle. The strain triggers a seizure and Brawler Yukon crashes to the ground. Neither Lightcap nor Schoenfeld are sure if the seizure or the two hundred foot fall killed him.[1]
