Sumeragi Lee Noriega
The closest thing that the Ptolemios has to The Captain. A genius strategist with a shady past, Sumeragi (or, going by her real name, Risa Kujoh) is The Strategist for the group. After being handed missions by Veda, Sumeragi devises their tactics and assumes command when in battle. However, her easygoing nature is a veneer over deep emotional issues, and her past has made her borderline (if not downright) alcoholic. She also was close to Billy Katagiri.Voiced by Yoko Honna (Japanese) and Lisa Ann Beley (English)
- Action Survivor
- Actor Allusion: Lisa Ann Beley also voiced Murrue Ramius in Gundam SEED. Like Sumeragi, Murrue was a well-endowed brunette whose boyfriend dies in battle and an exceptional commander.
- The Alcoholic: It's played rather seriously. She apparently spent most of the four years between seasons drunk.
- Brainy Brunette: The strategist among the team... indeed, one of the best strategists in the world.
- Broken Bird: She got a number of her soldiers, including her lover, killed when a training exercise became a friendly-fire incident under her command.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Although she has a number of personal problems, she's an excellent tactician/strategist.
- But Not Too Foreign: Japanese-Spanish born in America, wow!
- The Chessmaster: Her job.
- Cooldown Hug: Uses this on Billy towards the end, who breaks down in tears as a result.
- The Danza: Shares her real given name with her English voice actress.
- Dating Cat Woman: With Billy during season 1.
- Drowning My Sorrows: Her default method of dealing with her personal issues.
- Expy: Of Neon Genesis Evangelion's Misato Katsuragi, but with bigger breasts and a bigger drinking problem: at least Misato never drank on duty, also Murrue Ramius of Gundam SEED (whom she shares voice actors with), with Kati Mannequin, her former dark haired tomboy ally, as her Natarle Badgiruel.
- Failure Knight: She's plagued by the memories of her lover Emilio's death, apparently to her and Kati's mistakes.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: So much in season 1 that it even bared her midriff. When she rejoined the crew in season 2, the uniform she first tried on is too small for her. (She gets one with a proper fit later.)
- Get a Hold of Yourself Man: Continues the proud Gundam tradition of slapping the fail out of emo people such as Tieria in Season 1, and winds up having this done to her at least once.
- Guile Heroine: It's one ship and four Gundams against the military might of everyone else in the world, so she rather has to be.
- Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Always ready to drink.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: (Her English VA, at least) Although unnoticeable at first, aside from being Bright Noa's female counterpart in an alternate timeline, she was also one of the most recognized badass pacifists of the franchise.
- The Leader: Of the Ptolemaios crew.
- Living with the Villain: Billy was her neighbor and boyfriend of sorts. He works for The Union and later for the A-Laws.
- And they did live in the same house during the four-year timeskip, although due to CB's status as "in shambles" they weren't actually enemies until Setsuna rang the doorbell.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Her middle name are spelled "Li" or "Lee", while her real first name can be spelled as Lisa, Leesa, Reesa or Risa.
- The Strategist: And a damn fine one.
- Stepford Smiler: Lockon lampshades it during the Beach Episode, saying that she's just pretending to be strong when someone else asks how she can be so cheerful.
- Supporting Leader: Celestial Being's Mildly Military status means she's not quite The Captain, but she's close.
- Team Mom: For her crew.
- Teen Genius: Graduated from college at age 17 with flying colors.
- Walking the Earth: She and the rest of CB in the finale.
One of the Bridge Bunnies aboard the Ptolemaios, Feldt is a young girl who has more-or-less grown up with Celestial Being, since her deceased parents used to be Gundam Meisters several years before the start of the anime. She initially has a very reserved, borderline emotionless personality, although thanks to her friendship with fellow bridge bunny Christina Sierra, and the crush she develops on Lockon Stratos, this gradually changes.In season two, she continues her work as a bridge bunny, with a more open personality.Voiced by Ayahi Takagaki (Japanese) and Chantal Strand (English)
- Actor Allusion: Strand previously voiced both Lacus in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Meer in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny. Like those, Feldt is a pink haired girl, with Haros and working for the protagonists.
- All Love Is Unrequited: As sweet as her crush on Lockon was, he only saw her as a substitute younger sister at best... and then he died. Between Feldt and Tieria, the moral of the story is probably this: Don't develop strong feelings for Neil Dylandy.
- Armor-Piercing Slap: Does this to Lyle when he steals a kiss from her. Though that's what Lyle actually intended to happen.
- Breakout Character: Had a much more active role in Season 2, and her relationship with Setsuna is one of the focal points of the movie.
- Dye Hard: As stated by Word of God, she dyes her hair pink, though it was also pink when she was a baby in 00P.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Switches her drill-like pigtails for a single ponytail in season two. It's a deliberate tribute to the late Christina.
- Expy: Pink hair, likes haros and fell in love with a Gundam pilot...hmmmm.
- Her appearance in season 1 resembles that of Franca Dochley.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: First season outfit.
- Gainaxing: During the final OP animation.
- Generation Xerox: Like her mother, she fell in love with a Gundam meister. In her case, twice.
- Improbable Age: She's only 14 in season one, and even after the timeskip is still 19. Justified by the fact she's been with Celestial Being her entire life, though.
- Kuudere: She almost seems like an Emotionless Girl in Season 1 because she's so quiet and withdrawn, but she does have some Not So Stoic moments.
- Loving a Shadow: Towards Neil in the early parts of season 2. The Genre Savvy Lyle notices and dissuades her brutally by putting on a Jerk Ass Facade.
- Mama Bear: Given that she views everyone in CB as her family, Feldt was rather unhappy to say the least when Allelujah came back with Soma, who was part of the original UN taskforce which was responsible for the deaths of Christina, Lichty, Dr. Moreno and Lockon I. She does apologize later.
- Not Good with People: Most prevalent in season 1 where she preferred to interact with computers and Haros as opposed to people. Season 2 has her growing out of this.
- Onee-sama: Acts like one towards Mileina.
- Paramilitary Brat: Literally grew up in Celestial Being, since her parents were Gundam Meisters.
- Parental Abandonment: Both her parents died when she was very small, and because of Celestial Being's strict rules on confidentiality, she doesn't even know how they died. The 00P photonovel sidestory tells their story and explains that they were vapourised in an accident involving Virtue/Nadleeh's predecessor unit; in a way, it might've been for the better that poor Feldt didn't find out about that.
- Say My Name: "CHRISTINA SIERRAAAAAAAAA!!!!"
- Later on does this sometimes for Setsuna.
- Ship Tease: Just watch episode 22 of season 2. She'll give a flower to someone. Someone who happens to be the main character of the story.
- And in the 4 months for 2312 drama CD, they have a rather in depth conversation, part of it involving Neil Dylandy.
- In the movie this ship is pushed quite hard, but whether or not it was reciprocated was deliberately made up for interpretation by the director.
- Smitten Teenage Girl: To Lockon. Five years after his death and near the end of S2, to Setsuna.
- Third-Option Love Interest: Arguably, to Marina's Betty and Nena's Veronica, though she made her move after Nena's death.
- Too Many Belts: Her first season outfit had these.
- Unkempt Beauty: Still, it doesn't stop Christina from nagging her to dress-up and be fashionable.
- Walking the Earth: With the rest of CB in the finale.
- 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.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Not sure, but her boots are pretty high in the first season.
One of the Bridge Bunnies in Ptolemios, Christina ran away from her adopted mother before being discovered by Celestial Being. She becomes good friends with fellow crewmate Feldt.Voiced by Arise Satou (Japanese) and Shannon Chan-Kent (English)
- Abusive Parents: It's implied that she ran away from home because of this.
- Blood from the Mouth: Moments before she dies.
- Cool Big Sis: To the crew, but moreso to Feldt.
- The Fashionista: She likes to go on shopping trips whenever CB gets some downtime and drags Feldt along with her.
- Forgotten Fallen Friend: She isn't mentioned often in the second season, but she does get a significant scene in The Movie.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her shirt clings rather unrealistically, on top of being a Sexy Backless Outfit.
- Let Them Die Happy: When Licthy confesses his feelings before he dies, she tells him that she returns them... and also lets him believe that he actually did save her life.
- Name's the Same: Christina is also the name of the franchise's first female Gundam pilot.
- Playful Hacker: She was before joining Celestial Being. She doesn't show off this skill in the series.
Lichtendahl, or Lichty for short, is the Ptolemaios helmsman. Lichty's parents were technicians on one of the orbital elevators and killed during the Solar Wars while he lost a large portion of his body, which was replaced with machinery. Although Lichty has a romantic interest in crewmate Christina, she maintains a friendly and professional relationship.Voiced by Masataka Azuma (Japanese) and Davide A. Kaye (English)
- All Love Is Unrequited: Unfortunately, Christina realized her feelings for him after he died and before she dies..
- Artificial Limbs: His entire right part is replaced with cybernetics due to an attack in the past that killed his parents.
- Dogged Nice Guy: To Christina. Unfortunately, Christina only says she likes him back right before they die.
- Foreshadowing: If one pays really close attention during certain scenes it can be seen that his arm and leg on one side is a different shade that on the other hinting of his cybernetic parts.
- Forgotten Fallen Friend: He isn't mentioned often in season 2, but he gets a significant scene in The Movie.
- Informed Ability: In season 2, Lasse commented that Lichty is the best gunner the Ptolemaios ever had. Ignoring the fact that the Ptolemaios didn't have any weapons on it to begin with, he didn't even bother to fight at all when they were put in tough and inevitable battles in season 1, while Lasse, the gunner of the ship, left his post to join the meisters in action piloting the GN-Arms.
- Last Minute Hook Up: Literally, as they died afterwards.
- Let Them Die Happy: Christina lied to him that she's safe after his Heroic Sacrifice.

Initially, Lasse served as the gunner for the Celestial Being mothership Ptolemaios. He also piloted the GNR-001 GN Arms, a transformable weapon docking system for the four Gundams. In the second series, he remained with Celestial Being even when his health decayed quite a bit after the the season 1 final battle. During the assault on Veda, Lasse briefly piloted the 0 Gundam in defence of Ptolemaios II. At the end of the series Lasse remains part of Celestial Being.Voiced by Hiroki Tochi (Japanese) and Andrew Francis (English)

Mileina is Ian and Linda's daughter. She joins the crew of the Ptolemaios II before the beginning of the second series and takes Christina's place on the bridge.

- Artificial Human: As of all Innovades.
- Anti-Villain: Sort of. Her true personality is villainous, but Lyle and the crew's influence changes her mind.
- Death Equals Redemption: If one consider the theories that the Innovades' names were corruption of such "good words", it happened in season 2 episode 20 called Anew Return.
- Death Is Dramatic: Like any dead Newtype girlfriend, she gets slow-motion, a song montage, and flashbacks.
- Distaff Counterpart: Possibly of Revive Revival (hard to tell with Innovades and genders).
