Fan Nickname: "Vowels", because his name is full of 'em. Also "Moeria", because his fangirls think he looks adorable when he's upset. Also, mostly on the Japanese Fandom, "Zetsubou-Sensei", especially after the Lampshading Shout-Out in one of the SZS episodes.
Morality Pet: To Hallelujah. There is only one time in the entire series when he had an objective other than 'kill things in a horrible, sadistic manner'... and it involved safeguarding Marie. D'awww...
Tactical operator. Has a wealth of mechanic-related knowledge and both her parents are second generation Gundam Meisters. She was initially an Emotionless Girl , but thanks to her interactions with the people around her, she gets great amount of Character Development.Voiced by Ayahi Takagaki (Japanese) and Chantal Strand (English)
Wrench Wench: Her background info implies she is one, stating that she has a wealth of mechanics related knowledge, and can troubleshoot a GN drive. Pity we only get to see her use said knowledge a few times, also implied though her finding more comfort in dealing with machines (Haros mainly) rather than people.
A fearless and a supportive comrade in arms. He never showed any fear in any dangerous combat situations and protective of his friends.Voiced by Hiroki Tochi (Japanese) and Andrew Francis (English)
Expy: The man has many similarities to Seiya Uribitake from Martian Successor Nadesico, except he's a little more sedate, and Graham and Setsuna have the Cargo Ship tendencies, not him (though he will be pissed if you damage his robots.
Brigadier General of the ESF army. She served as The Strategist to AEU and A-LAWS. Was a colleague of Sumeragi Lee Noriega aka Leesa Kujoh in college and AEU. Wife of Patrick Colasour.Voiced by Minami Takayama (Japanese) and Cathy Weseluck (English)
An Earth Sphere Federation special force unit headed by Graham Aker, and drawn from the best Mobile Suit pilots of the ESF. They use the Brave class mobile suit, and Graham has a Brave that was especially made for him.
Multinational Team: Graham is American, Viktor Leonov is a West Russian [hence, Russia west of the Urals], Rudolf Schreiber is from Germany, Akira Takei is Japanese, Yagan Crow is Australian, and Naguib Neferu is Egyptian.
Marina's best friend, advisor and lady in waiting, who does not doubt to scold Marina when she hesitates. She left the Palace in season 2 and becomes a member of the rebel group Katharon to keep fighting for Azadistan in her own way. Now, she seems to be back on her side.Voiced by Michiko Neya (Japanese) and Ellen Kennedy (English)
Damsel in Distress: She is one of the people being targeted by the ELS because they are homing in on her Quantum Brainwaves. Naturally, she's not the only one, but she's definitely one of the most prominent due to her importance as a character. As a result, Saji and Setsuna have to rescue her from an ELS that has taken the form of a familiar looking Innovade.
Ill Girl: Due to Ribbons' medication. Fortunately, she's getting better.
Last Of Her Kind: She is the Halevy clan's only survivor after Nena's attack. And since she reconciled with Saji, who she is engaged with, the Halevy clan will be extinct surname wise when they do marry since she and their would be children will most likely use Saji's (Crossroad) last name. Unless she and Saji reach an agreement about it per a Japanese custom that allows a man who's marrying an only daughter of a higher social standard to be "adopted" into her family and renouce his family name. The fact that this is also the year 2311 might also help; a man taking a woman's family name probably isn't too unheard of, considering it's common enough for people in most first-world countries now to think it little more than a curiosity.
Patrick took Kati's last name, so there's even more reason.
Latin Lover: Still subverted because she still doesn't act like one towards Saji.
A female high school student who is infected by ELS in a half of the body. The Earth Sphere Federation takes her unconscious body as a sample in order to learn more about the ELS. In the epilogue, she is able to completely coexist with ELS and is the captain of "Sumeragi", an outer space navigating spaceship.Voiced by: Yuka Nishigaki (Japanese)
Break the Cutie: She's among the first victims of human assimilation by the ELS. And it is horrifying.
The ELS is a race of techno-organic sentient aliens that has the unique abilities to assimilate/infect nearly all life and technology. They appear as a silver metallic organisms that can take solid or liquid-like forms.
Aliens Are Bastards: Averted. They honestly didn't know they were hurting humanity by their actions, and they stop the instant they find out they are.
Blue and Orange Morality: They really do not seem to understand the value humans place on individual lives. Or on individuality. In fact, it might be said that they are just as confused by the nature of human life as we are by them.
Ditto Aliens: As shapeshifters, they can take any form they want. Despite this, there are a few basic forms they seem to prefer as defaults. Two ELS taking the same shape are completely indistinguishable from one another, at least to human eyes.
Doomed Planet: The end reveals that their homeworld's star went supernova, which explains why they came to the Sol System.
Starfish Aliens: They are made of metal. They can shapeshift in seconds. They are psychic. They can assimilate things. They live in gas giants... actually, is there anything familiar about them to Earth lifeforms?
Voluntary Shape Shifting: There are several forms they seem to gravitate to by default, but it's pretty clear that they can take any form they desire, with no limitation other than size.
Zerg Rush: They tend to do this in combat, sending out massive swarms of smaller ELS to absorb and assimilate other things. They're easy to shoot down, but there's just so many of them that they get through regardless. They show very little consideration for the lives of said smaller ELS, which would make sense if they are, in fact, a Hive Mind.
