Noel (Bakery Girl)
|Noel (Bakery Girl)|
|Released on||Codename: Bakery Girl|
Noel (诺耶露) is one of the three test subjects produced during the Three Goddesses project in 2078, along with Lunasia and Jefuty. Her DNA is a mix of human and GAVIRUL genes, and a reproduction of test subject Rose from the earlier Black Lily and White Rose project.
When the Three Goddesses project fell through due to political tensions in 2085, Noel fell into the hands of the Union of Rossartrism Nations Coalition, while Lunasia went under Antarctic Union control and Jefuty's whereabouts were lost in the confusion. However, both Noel and Lunasia fell short of initial expectations when they failed to activate relics sites. Both factions then went to search for Jefuty.
The search for Jefuty ended in 2092, when she was found by the Coalition. To track Jefuty's movements, Noel was brainwashed and deployed to follow Jefuty under the alias Lige. Jefuty sensed Lige was another test subject and took her as her little sister, and they both promised to find their mother. On December 18th, 2092, two teams of the Union's Main Intelligence Directorate approached the refugees convoy Jefuty was hiding in to capture her as part of operation Bakery, but the Coalition troops of Major Beria attacked, killing all MID agents and civilians in order to capture Jefuty. Jefuty and Lige tried to run away, but they were confronted by a tank who killed Lige gruesomely with his machine gun and main cannon. As she was running away, Jefuty witnessed two men approaching Lige's mangled body as it reassembled itself, and one of the men gave her a drug to accelerate her recovery. He then presented himself as his father and gave her back the name Noel.
The following night, Noel discovered Jefuty when she was running reconnaissance on Beria's base, but later helped her and Mendo as they were running away by killing an ELID infected. She also informed them that the base would soon be left undefended before running away, but this proved to be an ambush set by Beria. Jefuty asked Beria what had happened to Lige, and he revealed how Noel was used to track her down. Jefuty and the Union troops managed to break the encirclement with a diversion, but they were stopped by Noel, who resented Jefuty for abandoning her and carried out a plan to bring Jefuty back to their father. Jefuty refused and defeated Noel, who lamented how Jefuty had always been her father's favorite and revealed that a Coalition army was closing in to capture Jefuty.
In 2094, the Union located Jefuty in the Bear's Den relics site and staged operation Kindle, a full-on assault designed to seize Jefuty back. The operation originally went in favor of the Union as Noel turned on the Coalition, but the mission fell through when the local Coalition commander ordered the use of Assault Artillery systems within the relics site, starting an event similar to the one that had led to the First Beilan Island Incident. Union and Coalition high commands collaborated and the Coalition authorized the Union air force to deploy a missile containing a molten plutonium payload to utterly destroy the Bear's Den. Both Jefuty and Noel were declared MIA.
