    Other Characters 

Princess Marina Ismail

Voiced by Ayumi Tsunematsu (Japanese) and Maryke Hendrikse (English)

Shirin Bakhtiar

Saji Crossroad

Louise's long-time boyfriend whose life changed drastically because of Celestial Being. In the first season, he used to live a normal life with his late sister right next door to Setsuna's until his girlfriend got badly hurt and eventually his sister killed. In season 2, he was Mistaken for Terrorist by A-LAWS and was about to be executed, only to be saved by Setsuna. Because he got nowhere to go, he was forced to become Celestial Being's Tag Along Guy, and eventually Sixth Ranger, when he realized his girlfriend was now part of A-LAWS. It was a hard battle, but he regained his girl and earned his happy ending.

Voiced by Miyu Irino (Japanese) and Gabe Khouth (English)

Louise Halevy

Saji's long-time girlfriend. Due to the brutal murder of her family and the loss of her left hand late in the first season, she joined A-LAWS in the second season for a chance at revenge. She eventually fought Saji, who was a Tag Along Guy and Sixth Ranger to Celestial Being at the time, and accused him as a CB spy from the start. Fortunately, they got better.

Voiced by Chiwa Saito (Japanese) and Kelly Sheridan (English)
  • The Atoner: According to Word of God, she's living her life with the intention of making up for all the crazy shit she pulled with the A-Laws.
  • Blue Blood
  • Broken Bird: Though more stable than she used to be.
  • Chickification: Averted. Yes, she's ill again, but we already know that being a Dark Action Girl REALLY wasn't too good for her physical and mental health. And we got to see it in all details, therefore her situation does not fulfill the main requirement: to be pushed aside of action without valid in-story justification.
  • 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.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Due to the events in the series.
  • Demoted to Extra
  • Evolutionary Levels: She is a Pseudo-Innovator.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: She grows her hair back to its original (season 1) length.
  • 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.
  • The Ojou
  • Parental Abandonment
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Outright stated to have PTSD.

Klaus Grado

The former leader of the Katharon Rebel Group which opposed the Earth Sphere Federation and its elite squad A-Laws. He is now an ESF representative.

Voiced by Tokuyoshi Kawashima (Japanese) and Alistair Abell (English)

Amia Lee

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)

E.A. Ray

A young man who talks with Aeolia Schenberg in the epilogue. As the novel adaptation describes, he became the model for Ribbons Almark and subsequent green-haired Innovades in both the main show and it's various expanded materials.

Voiced by Toru Furuya (Japanese) and Michael Adamthwaite (English)

    Extraterrestrial Living-Metal Shape-Shifters (ELS)

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, as one of their main methods of communication is assimilating with things they come into contact with, and they stop the instant they find out just what kind of damage they've been doing, ultimately revealing themselves to be quite peaceful.
  • Assimilation Plot: How it seems until Setsuna is finally able to make contact with them.
  • 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. And when a chat with Setsuna reveals to them that their normal method of communication is dangerous to earth, and that their reaction to being attacked as a result is not helping things, they IMMEDIATELY cease all hostilities, form a symbol of peace, and ultimately end up in symbiosis with humanity as a whole. Granted they also side against the Old Human Faction later on, but that had more to do with the fact that said side wanted them dead as well and they certainly strayed from repeating their actions during the movie.
  • Body Horror: Those assimilated by them undergoes this.
  • 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.
  • Expy: Their design are like Vorlon ships.
  • First Contact: The first-ever aliens to appear in the Gundam franchise. They are also notable for being one of the more recent depictions of aliens both during the film's airing and years afterwards that aren't some kind of humanoid/insectoid creature, instead being a truly alien lifeform in every single way
  • Fun with Acronyms: Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shapeshifters
  • The Greys: They are Grey / Silver / Mercury / Platinum colored.
  • Hive Mind: An advanced version. The structure of their mind is completely alien to that of a human's, and they all share a mental link. This is to the point where, when they start absorbing and copying GNX-I Vs, said link makes them far more dangerous than their human-piloted counterparts due to said shared link and shared vision.
  • Invading Refugees: See DoomedPlanet above.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Played horrifyingly straight, as their only method of communication besides quantum interfacing is painfully assimilating whatever they touch, humans included..
  • Power Copying: They begin doing this in the final battle, copying warship and mobile suit designs. This also makes them a lot more effective in combat, as their Hive Mind allows them to utilize tactics and the machines they copy to levels far higher than a squad of pilots ever could.
  • Silicon-Based Life: Suggested to be such, as they are made of metal.
  • 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, compared to recent depictions of aliens in other series around the time of 00's airing and even currently, there isn't anything familiar about them to Earth lifeforms. In Fact, somehow they're even more alien than the Coralians ever were, which is saying something, but as the same time eerily realistic.
  • Ur-Example: They are the first aliens to actually appear in the Gundam franchise, though there's a Space Whale fossil that appeared in SEED.
  • 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 (and even that could be called into question).
  • 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.
