A respected Colonel from the AEU known for her brilliant strategies. She is the love interest of Patrick Colasour and is constantly pursued by him. When the three world powers unite to fight the Gundams, she become friends with HRL colonel Sergei Smirnov. In the second season, she joins the A-LAWS to investigate them. It is also revealed that she and Celestial Being's strategist Sumeragi Li Noriega, or better said Leesa Kujou, are past acquaintances.

  • Colonel Badass: She's a colonel, one of the most skilled strategist in a series filled with skilled strategists, and almost always manages to keep calm under pressure.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Is ultra serious at first, but her humanity starts to show as the series goes on.
  • Enemy Mine: Twice with Celestial Being and Kataron. First when the AEU orbital elevator collapse, she helps Celestial Being destroy the debris to minimize civilian casualties. Second, during the final battle, she shows up with other A-Laws defectors to help Celestial Being fight the Innovades, but she makes it clear to Sumeragi that she still considers Celestial Being to be an enemy and will attempt to arrest them once their mutual enemy is defeated.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She joins the ESF Coup d'Etat faction after A-LAWS brings down the orbital elevator.
  • Hero Antagonist: She seeks to stop Celestial Being because their interventions are a threat to the AEU. While she does join the A-Laws, it's to investigate their suspicious activities and she remains a heroic character to the end.]]
  • Iron Lady: Seldom lets her emotions show while she's on duty.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: She feels that Celestial Being's goal is impossible and that her old friend Kujo is naive for believing in them.
  • Married to the Job: She has dedicated her life to serving the AEU. However, she later marries her subordinate Patrick.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a fancy military hat when she is with the AEU military.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She figured out VERY quickly Patrick had a thing for her, but doesn't openly reveal she knows until he makes it blatantly obvious. During that time, she artfully used his crush to positively motivate him to follow orders.
  • Opposites Attract: She's serious while Patrick is very unprofessional, but Patrick falls in love with her and she's later shown to reciprocate.
  • Tempting Fate: During her university years, Kati commended Kujonote 's tactics and joked she hates to face her in the battlefield. Guess what happens in the friendly fire incident? And during the whole series?
  • The Strategist: As good as, if not, better than Sumeragi. Well, Sumeragi does look up to her.
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Patrick refers to her by her rank, even after he starts actively trying to woo her. And even on their wedding day!
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: According to flashbacks, she's the tomboy to Sumeragi's girly girl.s.
  • Worthy Opponent: She sends a complimentary message addressed to Kujonote  after one battle.

    Patrick Colasour

Main mecha: Enact, GN-X, GN-XIII, GN-XIV

The Ace of AEU, who's prevailed in 2000 simulation battles!

... Well, okay. To make it short, this guy is the resident loser of the series, whose barks are bigger than his bite. He first appears in an exhibition of the Enact and got owned by Setsuna. Later on, he reappears to fight the Gundam again... and got blasted by Tieria without him even trying. He is known as a playboy, but when he meets his new commander Kati Mannequin (and got punched in the face for being late), he instantly fell in love for real and found a new goal in life: to win her heart.

  • Anti-Villain: All he really wants in life is to prove his skill as a pilot by defeating the Gundams and to win Kati's love. He never does anything villainous beyond fighting the Meisters and he ultimately joins them against the Innovades for the final battle.
  • Appropriated Appellation: His nickname of "The Immortal Colasaur" originated as a joke by his fellow pilots mocking his ability to survive certain death despite his apparent lack of piloting skills, but Patrick assumes that the nickname is a genuine compliment and happily adopts it.
  • Book Dumb: He's not particularly bright, but is an exceptionally skilled pilot.
  • Born Lucky: Say what you want up his losing streak, surviving the entire series with the amount of near fatal attacks he has you could probably trap him in one town then get every resident to fire machine guns at him and the chances are he will still be breathing.
  • Butt-Monkey: From episode 1, whenever he takes the field against a Gundam you know what's about to happen.
  • Can't Catch Up: Compared to the other enemy aces he falls behind in effectiveness in season 2 as he is never able to acquire a better unit beyond a GN-X (the lowest tier of a GN powered suit). That's not to say he's a bad pilot, but he isn't quite as flashy and is never able to quite regain the effectiveness he had in the season 1 finale.
  • Captain Crash: Almost every time he sorties, he crashes his mobile suit.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's actually a skilled pilot and his loses to the Meisters are usually attributable to the superiority of the Gundams over his mobile suits. When he gets a GN-X, which is comparable in ability to the Meisters's Season One Gundams, he becomes a genuine threat to the Meisters and proves to be truly skilled when he fights the A-Laws and Innovades alongside the Meisters during the final battle.
  • Death Is Dramatic: Subverted. It often looks like he gets a dramatic death scene, only for him to show up unharmed a few scenes later.
  • French Jerk: He's French and is a Jerkass until Kati forces him to mellow out.
  • Genius Ditz: He's the AEU's top pilot. This appears to be his only real skill other than being seemingly unkillable.
  • Genki Guy: Being a Butt-Monkey does not lessen his energy one bit.
  • Happily Ever After: He and Kati get this treatment (complete with wedding bells) in the epilogue of episode 25 in season 2.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Shows up to fight the Innovades during the final battle alongside Kati and the other A-Laws defectors.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices himself to save Kati's life during the final battle. Subverted when he turns up alive in the epilogue.
  • Subordinate Excuse: After meeting and falling in love with Kati, he follows her whenever she changes posts.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: First episode he boasted of his accomplishments while the suit he was piloting was being torn limb from limb, and that was just the first episode.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Gets to lay down the law and even make his inevitable unit-trashing look awesome for the finale, which finally wins his beloved Kati's heart.
  • Undying Loyalty: Completely loyal to Kati and seems to be incapable of dying.
  • Unknown Rival: Is usually pitted against Tieria in the first season, but Tieria never acknowledges his existance.
