* ArmchairMilitary: Used to be a desk officer who was thrown into active combat. A rare positive example of this trope, as he's not particularly incompetent or bloodthirsty, instead tends towards indecisiveness and outbursts of frustration towards situations out of his control. He is still feels great responsibility towards his men and his mission.
* ASpotOfTea: When not on the bridge or in a meeting with the rest of the ''Nahel Argama'' crew, he's usually having tea (and serving them as well)
* BadassMoustache: rather small, but his berating of Angelo in episode 6 elevates him to this.

%%* TheStoic* TheStoic: Outside of the situation where her programming kicks in, she's of a generally phlegmatic disposition and is indeed largely stoic and unemotional,



The helmsman of the camouflaged freighter Garencieres. At first glance Flaste has an air of unapproachability, but his personality is actually more like that of a big brother, and he has the full trust of the crew. He is also an old acquaintance of Captain Zinnerman, and supports him well as the second in command of the Garencieres crew.

He is also an old acquaintance of Captain Zinnerman, and supports him well as the second in command of the Garencieres crew.



* NumberTwo: Is actually the ''Garencieres''' First Mate, getting to helm it only after [[spoiler:Gilboa Sant's death, as it was Gilboa who was the ship's original designated helmsman.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: On a meta scale he expresses this sentiment after [[spoiler:the ''Garencieres''']] sinking in the TV series, as he just got used to helming it.



A member of the Garencieres crew. Gilboa has a friendly demeanor, and is the father of three children.

%%* AntiVillain

* PunchClockVillain: Doesn't mean harm to anyone, and fight only because of MyCountryRightOrWrong.



* CaptainErsatz: To Beast Rabban from ''Literature/{{Dune}}''.
%%* CorruptCorporateExecutive

%%* LargeAndInCharge
%%* ObstructiveBureaucrat
%%* ObfuscatingStupidity
* LargeAndInCharge: Unlike his brother's and father's lean physique, Alberto is notably rotund.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Well, at least tries to be, attempting to put the weight if the Anaheim Electronics on Captain Midas couple of times, though the good captain shows [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass an unexpected amount of spine]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Often looks like a mindless crony of Martha, but actually doesn't care for her at all, and manages to successfully hide it from her.


Added DiffLines:

* PunchClockVillain: While he widely participates in a darker side of the AE's business, this is [[MyCountryRightOrWrong largely of family and company loyalty]], rather than ForTheEvulz, and he does a HeelFaceTurn on the first opportunity.
* ShipTease: With Marida, on whom he developed [[RescueRomance a bit of a crush]].

* GenreSavvy: With mobile suits.
** WrongGenreSavvy: Despite being a mobile suit otaku, Takuya gets a number of key facts wrong: he wrongly identifies the RX-78-2 Gundam as the Federation's first mobile suit [[note]]which is not technically true, the RX-75-4 Guntank preceded the Gundam[[/note]] and claims that Zeon called it the White Devil [[note]]that was actually Amuro's nickname, similar to the Red Comet[[/note]] and later calls the Delta-Plus the Hyaku-Shiki[[note]] The Delta Plus is actually based on the Delta Gundam, a transformable mobile suit that had its transformation mechanism scrapped and became the Hyaku-Shiki[[/note]]. Granted it's presented as more tongue-in-cheek, but these mistakes may belie a bit of propaganda on the part of his sources.

* GenreSavvy: After commanding three generations of Gundam pilots, to say he's wise in their ways would be an understatement.



* GenreSavvy: Once Full Frontal shows up in battle for the first time, he insists that the crew retreat as soon as possible.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the novels, where she is a DefectorFromDecadence wracked by guilt from the destruction her father causes in the Shamblo. [[spoiler: She is fatally injured by him in response, and then sends psychic messages to Banagher revealing the Shamblo's weak spots and allowing him to take the Shamblo down.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown
** Unambiguously in the Novels, where she was depicted as a Muslim woman, though both this part of her background and her family's involvement with Islamic extremism were toned down in the anime [[TooSoon due to it being released around the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.]]

to:

* AdaptationalVillainy: In Her portrayal in the anime is very different from the novels, where she is a DefectorFromDecadence wracked by guilt from the destruction her JerkAss father causes in the Shamblo. [[spoiler: She is fatally injured by him in response, and then sends psychic messages to Banagher revealing the Shamblo's weak spots and allowing him to take the Shamblo down.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown
** Unambiguously
AmbiguouslyBrown: Intentionally so in the anime. It's much less ambiguous iin the Novels, where she was depicted as a Muslim woman, though both this part of her background and her family's involvement with Islamic extremism were toned down in the anime [[TooSoon due to it being released around the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.]]

** May also be a reference to a type of lobotomy, given his origins (at least in the novel version).

* {{Badass}}: Even Bright Noa acknowledged that he's almost a mirror image of his late subordinate/friend, Amuro Ray. He also doesn't necessary need a Gundam to put the beatdown on your ass for what he believes is right. GoodOldFisticuffs work fine for him. [[Funny/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Just ask Zinnerman]].
** If you still have questions about how badass he is,[[spoiler: all he needed to do was wave his arm (or rather the Unicorn's) to disable an entire Federation battalion, [[TechnicalPacifist without firing a shot]] during the finale, thanks to his fully awakened psychic powers]].



* {{Badass}}: He racks up multiple kills with a freakin' [[BreakOutTheMuseumPiece Zaku I Sniper]].

* BlondGuysAreEvil: [[spoiler:It's possible that his hair is dyed to look like Char so his blond hair may or may not be natural.]]



* BigBad: [[BigBadEnsemble The second candidate]], alongside Frontal. The two are parts of a dichotomy, with Martha's violent conservatism and desire to preserve the status quo by any means necessary being treated as far worse than Full Frontal's desire to use the Box to create change (albeit bad change).
