Because flying mechs already have this ability, it is generally unwise to waste Kwan on them.

Background

Henry Kwan [Detritus] Henry Kwan is perhaps the least reliable and least safety-minded worker in Detritus. It seemed he would be forever regulated to a low-level A.C.I.D. report-filing bureau at Detritus - until the Vek attacked. Impulsively, he applied for the open call for pilot training, and he passed the aptitude test with flying colors (his instincts and reflexes seemed to shine in "think-fast" situations - as well as situations where he could cause a lot of damage... intentionally.). While hardly the most modest employee at Detritus, his accomplishments in battle have only fed his ego. Despite the timelines lost, Henry seems to see it all as some sort of game, and remains distant from the actual suffering - some suspect his jokes and boasting are a psychological shield, and thus, are afraid to pierce it, in case he loses what gives him his fighting confidence in the first place by dwelling on his failures vs. his accomplishments.

Personality

Cocky. Feels he is the hero. Feels invulnerable. Feels he couldn't possibly be wrong.

Strategy

Henry Kwan is well suited to melee-range mechs (such as the Combat Mech or the Judo Mech) where his special allows him position himself on tiles that would normally be blocked off to other pilots. Because flying mechs already have this ability, it is generally unwise to waste Kwan on them.
