Takosher, is my character valid now?
I'd like you to expand the personality more. Also while your attachment is technically fine, do be aware that ramming is just as dangerous to you as it is whatever you're attacking. Also, please join the Discord, as it will be necessary for communication during the preparation phases.

Name: Hiro Meijō

Personality: Perpetually dreamy and maybe not entirely all there, Hiro enjoys staring off into the middle distance while things happen around him, occasionally making comments that would baffle a stoner, but often oddly incisive ones. Even though he may not know what exactly is going on at any given time, he has a knack for doing the right thing for the circumstances anyway. He likes doing things that don't require too much thought, like sleeping, staring into fires, and abstract algebra.

Appearance: A pale, scruffy-looking young man with grey eyes, a narrow upturned nose, and long fluffy hair, most of it black. Sometimes, he has feathers plaited into his hair, which he doesn't seem to notice; nobody has actually seen him putting them in or taking them out. Out of uniform, he dresses like he is going to a funeral of someone he really hates. He has the thin build of someone who sometimes forgets to eat and sometimes forgets what eating is, and is of basically normal height.

Level 1 (0 EXP)
    Psychic: 1

Mecha Name: Seraphiel

Mecha Appearance: Seraphiel is Hiro's guardian angel, and designed to look the part. In general, the design favours elongated, tapering oval shapes where others might be boxier. Its legs taper into conical feet reminiscent of a shakōki-dogū, and its colour scheme is turquoise and white with gold edging. Because Hiro is afraid of heights, a pleasant grassy meadow has been painted on the inside of the cockpit window at around (pilot) knee level.

You can go for a slightly curvier design, but the tapered feet aren't gonna fly. In general I feel like you missed the part where mecha are inherently clunky, you're never really going to get an elegant design out of one.

Trait: Angelic Flight: As part of its generally angelic design, Seraphiel has a small rocket pack integrated into the upper back, designed to resemble feathered wings, allowing it to jump "hella high" like Wonderella, which is basically like flight. Although Seraphiel was not originally designed to mount interchangeable back modules, mounting points have begrudgingly been installed onto the wings to allow attachments to be mounted between them, but Hiro thinks it looks stupid and ruins the aesthetic to do so.

All mecha are designed to have interchangeable back modules, and this trait wouldn't exactly be a viable starter back module either. You shouldn't be designing to have a complete motif right out the gate, otherwise you won't have anything to build towards.

Power Source: Power Core
Infrastructure: Steel
Armor: Intractium

Equipped Attachments:
Name (Type): Dumah (Hand)
Description: A giant anime sword which billows with flame from an internal fuel reservoir when swung. The flame is just for effect.

This would be better if the flame were functional and powered by the mecha's core, rather than internally. There's not really any reason to do arbitrary aesthetic nonsense and a flaming sword is sufficiently simple to use as a starter weapon.

Damage:
[Any damage sustained should be noted here. Damage to specific attachments should instead be noted with those attachments]

Absolutely nothing about what I was imagining was anything I'd call elegant. I'll contemplate the design more.

I really didn't think I could get a proper flaming sword, but okay, I'm not going to turn one down.
