* HeelRealization: In ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'', it's shown that for all his bravado and gusto, he's perfectly (and bitterly) aware that he has the blood of multitudes on his hands and would be tried as a war criminal should Zeon lose. But he still commands Zeon's forces regardless out of protecting his family and homeland as well as in the hopes of redeeming the Zabi name though his wife and Minerva.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first scene, when Frau finds him in his room fiddling with a computer in his home electronics lab -- only in his underwear, having skipped several meals, and not particularly troubled that the sirens he'd been hearing were evacuation alerts. And Frau ''still'' has to nag him out of his room! Amuro having to learn how to deal with others is a major theme in the series.

* CloserToEarth: The levelheaded, sensible, stabilizing one to broody, isolating, hot-tempered Amuro. Frau perfectly embodies this to her best friend, though ironically, she's the one who's [[IncrediblyLamePun never been to Earth]].

The youngest members of the ''White Base'' crew, 8-year-old Katz, 6-year-old Letz, and 4-year-old-Kikka are three orphaned children from Side 7. Essentially adopted by the rest of the crew and closely looked after by Frau Bow, they stay with the ship for the war's duration.

* {{Heartwarming Orphan}}s: Occasionally. Just about ''everybody'' on ''WB'' has lost their family, but the kids are meant to be the hope for the future, and get a handful of brave and sweet moments.

* DarkSkinnedRedhead: The AmbiguouslyBrown Letz.
* CombatDiplomacyStealth: Arguably Kikka, Katz, Letz, respectively.
* {{Expy}}: Their character designs affectionately reference the ''other'' BlondeBrunetteRedhead roles their voice actresses are playing. Katz is brown-haired with similar bangs and SkintoneSclerae like Mirai, Letz is redheaded (and overlooked) like Frau, and Kikka's blonde and blue-eyed like Sayla.
* FamilyOfChoice: Three orphaned kids who start viewing each other as siblings. Also Frau as their older sister, and they're also arguably the genesis, nucleus, and symbolic for the whole crew eventually viewing each other as a family.

** NoSocialSkills: Actually, Amuro's got plenty. For starters, despite his blunt and mouthy bouts, he speaks very politely in Japanese to 98% of the people he comes across. He may not socialize ''much'', but watch him fix a broken toy for a strange kid or give a HUGELY eloquent speech to Ramba Ral and Hamon (people he's never met!) about why he can't accept their charity -- if he's interested at all, he's got an innate instinct for this stuff. Or this is what helps him [[spoiler:become a Newtype]]. Averted.

The son of the Gundam's designer, Tem Ray, Amuro is an alienated, antisocial 15-year-old who identifies better with machines than he does with people. Climbing into the Gundam's cockpit to save it from being stolen or destroyed, he finds himself serving as the ''White Base'''s main line of defense, against his own will. Initially caring only about his own survival, Amuro eventually comes to realise that other people matter too.

A 17-year-old medical student from Side 7, Sayla becomes one of the ''White Base'''s BridgeBunnies, before graduating to pilot status. She is frequently partnered with Amuro during the latter stages of the war, and the two of them share a good working relationship. She also has some sort of connection to Zeon ace Char Aznable, which is explored over the course of the show. Cool, controlled, and nearly unflappable, Sayla frequently acts as the voice of reason among the ship's crew.

* MoralityPet: Inverted and averted; her brother is the only one the normally strict and proper Sayla is willing to lie and push the rules for. In her case, much to her despair, she has virtually no effect on him at all.



** IJustWantToBeNormal: She's not interested in embracing either the power or the violence [[spoiler:that comes with her family background]], so despite being privileged, brilliant, and beautiful, she just wants to be an ordinary person.



* RebelliousPrincess: [[spoiler:Her real name is Artesia Som Deikun, daughter of the legendary Zeon Zum Deikun. However, she only wants to have a normal life and rejects her heritage as well as her older brother Casval (aka Char)'s grudge against the Zabis.]]

[[folder:Deikun]]
'''Zeon Zum Deikun'''

The original leader and founder of the Zeon Republic, Deikun was a voluntary immigrant in UC 0052 from Earth to Side 3 who promoted his philosophy of Contolism to encompass the ideas that Earth is sacred and humanity ought to migrate to Space, and that the colonies at the Sides ought to be self-governing. He also spoke of his belief in a "new type of humanity" that would emerge in Space. Died in 0068 under ''very'' suspicious circumstances.
----
* DisappearedDad: He died when his children Casval and Artesia were very young.
* FounderOfTheKingdom: Republic, actually, but the Zabis end up turning it into this, anyway. More than that, the struggle against TheFederation goes a long way beyond the One Year War.
* PosthumousCharacter: He died more than a decade before the start of the show, but he sure gets mentioned a lot.
* TheUnsolvedMystery: No one even knows if his death was foul play, let alone who was responsible. Nothing since 1979 has made this any clearer, with good reason.
* TheVoiceless: Dead for more than ten years ''and'' he doesn't even have any lines. The guy has a LOT of influence.
