Lance Belmont, nicknamed Lancer, led a double life as the popular subversive music artist Yellow Dancer during the Third Robotech War in Robotech: The New Generation, and was voiced by Cam Clarke while Yellow Dancer's singing voice was performed by Michael Bradley. Lancer later became a valuable member of Scott Bernard's group of freedom fighters. He was a capable pilot, and a comforting presence among his new friends. He enjoyed taking long, luxurious showers. He had a relationship with the Invid Sera. He was named Yellow Belmont in Genesis Climber MOSPEADA, the series which was adapted into the third "saga" of Robotech.
Broken-Hearted Girl's MarchEdit
Born on Earth prior to the Second Robotech War, Lancer always had a special love for music. One of his most cherished memories in his youth was visiting New York and seeing Carnegie Hall. Since then, he's dreamed of performing there one day. He joined the military shortly after emigrating to deep space during the early years of the Pioneer Expedition. After the Invid Invasion, Lancer volunteered to be part of the Admiral Rick Hunter's first Earth Reclamation Force. The attack ended in failure. Lancer however survived, crash-landing near a small village. There he is rescued Carla, a young woman that took pity on him and sheltered him from the local Invid Sympathizers. Surprisingly, her plan to disguise Lancer as a woman worked. The couples relationship blossomed after that. In the end, Lancer knew what they had was too good to be true; He could not sit back while the Invid continued to enslave mankind, so he left poor Carla on a train bound for someplace.
Lullaby of Distant HopeEdit
Lancer began applying his skills to gather intelligence and establish an underground resistance movement. He constructed the perfect secret identity - Combining his uncanny ability to appear and act feminine with his natural talent as a singer, Lancer was able to create a believable alter ego, a singer called "Yellow Dancer." As an popular entertainer, he was not perceived to be a threat. He traveled from town to town, barely raising suspicion from local Invid forces and their collaborators. Yellow Dancer became the perfect vehicle to pass information along to members of the freedom fighters network.
Eventually, Lancer joins Scott Bernard and his group of freedom fighters. Together, they waged a guerrilla war against the Invid, ambushing patrols, protecting towns, sabotaging protoculture processing plants and destroying an Invid hive, all in an effort to reach the Invid stronghold of Reflex Point. Along the way, Lancer encounters the Invid princess, Sera where a strange bond develops between them.
In the climactic battle at Reflex Point, Lancer found himself reasoning with the Invid Regess on why Earth must be spared. Later, as the battle intensifies, Sera saved Lancer's life and admits her affections to the rebel. They fight their way through waves of enemies, and in no time, they witness the Invid Regess leave Earth.
Lancer, feeling that his alter-ego didn't serve a purpose any more, revealed that he was Yellow Dancer all along, much to the surprise of the public. He later settles with Sera, hoping to start a new life.
