I honestly don't remember but I am pretty sure he is mentioned in the StrikerS epilogue...

So I watched the epilogue and it was stated that he "recovered his revoked Administration Staff weapons-bearing permit" and "is returning to the path of being a pilot/sniper"

Pilot/sniper?

On a side note, I've just recently found out here that the correct term is actually not "Administration Bureau" but "Administrative Bureau" (okay, so it actually said "Adminiatrative Bureau" in some spots, but still worth mentioning)

Almost as good as a wildlife preservation official/high-speed fighter. :3

Well, AFAIK, the "Administrative Bureau" is the official spelling since StrikerS, though "Space-Time Administration Bureau" was official during the first two seasons...

I mean, I know it's hardly an A-list-of-A-listers cast, especially compared to Japan's S+-rank lineup, but how did they do? Christina Vee can't have been bad. . .
The voices are mostly decent, other than Arf pronunciation issues and Raising/Raging indecision. Honestly, it was a lot better than I was afraid of, though it seemed the direction could have used some serious work (for consistency). But now it's been several months since I last watched it dubbed, so that's all I really remember. Hope that helps.

I'm wondering, could someone point me to some canon sources that talk about familiars in Nanohaverse? (I've seen the 3 anime seasons and read SS 2). I'm in need of research for one of my fanfics .

I recently read on the Nanoha Wikia that apparently there are Nanoha light novels that mentioned that a master can choose to sever the emphatic link with their familiar? Can someone kindly point me to the source for this, thanks!

The only extensive canon source on familiars is Nanoha Sound Stage 02 AFAIK...

I am not sure the Nanoha light novel has ever been translated into English...

To my knowledge, it hasn't. I think. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks! I suppose if it hasn't been translated yet, I can overlook for now any revelations it may have made about familiars so I can finish my story .

From what I hear, the light novel is not part of the main continuity, anyway.

Pilot/Sniper. Yeeeaaap Lockon Stratos. That's a pilot/sniper right there. Along with Weber and Blanc... Hmm... This does not bode well for Vice.

Nah. Those guys were piloting something that allowed them to fly and snipe. Unless Vice's helo could somehow transform into a rifle wielding mech he should be fine, right?

...

Right?

1. AMF Generator
2. Physical Weapons
3. Jewel Seed-ish power supplies
4. Being non-sentient war automaton

I don't think AMF is illegal per se.

2. Physical Weapons
Those are banned outright. I think Fate explains that in a StrikerS episode, though I don't remember which one. However, physical weapons were only part of Type IV and, possibly, Type II (the air-to-air missiles).

Quote:
3. Jewel Seed-ish power supplies
Only as long as they are actual Lost Logia. Those are to be turned over to the Bureau (see first seasons). I think only Type III were powered by them, however.

4. Being non-sentient war automaton
I don't think those are illegal per se, either...

Uh, magic-powered weaponry isn't exactly less common than sand in the Midchildan dimension, y'know.

Hmm? Aside from Arc-en-Ciel, what other magic-powered weaponry did the TSAB used?
