Lisa Hayes (also Elizabeth Hayes, later Lisa Hunter) was the first officer of the SDF-1, serving under Captain Henry Gloval and with fellow bridge officers Claudia Grant, Kim Young, Sammie Porter, and Vanessa Leeds during The First Robotech War.
Lisa came from a long line of military officers that dates back to more than a century. She was the daughter and only child of the Admiral Donald Hayes, a top ranking admiral in the Robotech Defense Force and leading figure in the development of Robotechnology and the Grand Cannon.
Having lost her mother at an early age, she was raised by a loving but hard-driving father. Admiral Hayes' important duties during and after the Global War often forced long separations.
Lisa graduated at the top of her class at military school and later at the Robotech Academy. While she excelled in all areas of acedemics and training, she stayed at a distance from most fellow cadets and formed few, if any close relationships.
Robotech Defense ForceEdit
Lisa was assigned as a bridge officer on the SDF-1 with Captain Gloval.
Lisa also became highly proficient at coordinating flight activity with the newly-created veritech fighters, which would become the backbone of the new Robotech Defense Force.
Robotech Expeditionary ForceEdit
In December of 2022, Lisa, now 37 and an admiral of the fleet, took command of the SDF-3, flagship of the Robotech Expeditionary Force (REF) to which was about to depart after eight years under construction. The mission's primary goal was to find the Robotech Masters and forge the peace in order to prevent another catastrophic war on Earth.
On the day before the SDF-3 launched, Lisa and Rick are finally married in a huge wedding ceremony attended by all of theirs friends onboard the Zentraedi Factory Satelite. The wedding ceremony can be seen in Robotech II: the Sentinels. Lisa 's onetime rival for Rick's affections, Lynn Minmei, eventually makes peace with the officer well enough to volunteer to sing at her wedding. Dana Sterling, now aged 10, serves as a flower girl and Bowie Grant, Claudia Grant's nephew, serves as the ring bearer. Breetai, the former ruthless Zentraedi warlord turned ally, (who has now been micronized) gives away the bride, while Max Sterling is the best man. The wedding is the happiest day of their lives even though their honeymoon lasts only a few hours as they must be ready for the SD-F- 3 to launch early the next morning.
Although they hope the mission will be over quickly, events will keep the SDF-3 away from Earth for the next 22 years.
