Ultimately, he came to serve as leader of a squadron, known as Ace Squadron, earning Fazon the callsign "Ace One." In addition, his personal starfighter was designated Green Ace due to its appearance and affiliation. Together, the Aces flew defense for the Colossus, and therefore, protected the platform from various threats to its security.
