Characters: Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Crew Of The Ptolemios
Tropes associated with the Ptolemaios and its crew:
open/close all folders
Crew as a whole
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.

- 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.
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

- 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 disuades 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 prefered 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.
- 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)
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.

- Can't Hold His Liquor: Implied in the drama CD 4 months for 2312 where he gets drunk on one (possibly two) glasses of wine to which he promptly passes out.
- Mr Fix It: A rather beleaguered one, thanks to the Meisters never listening when he tells them not to do something.
- Open-Minded Parent: Apparently has no problem with his fourteen-year-old daughter serving as bridge crew on an active battleship.
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. Despite her young age, she is a gifted technician, learning much about engineering, GN Technology, and programming from both her parents

- All Love Is Unrequited: She seems to have a crush on Tieria, who doesn't seem to notice. Makes her confession in the movie.
Ian's wife and mother to Mileina. She is the second lead engineer next to Ian. As Ian is often sent to perform field operations, She's left in charge of managing and developing new GN-technologies. She's also seen capable of fully utilizing a shuttle and the secondary bridge of Ptolemaios II, suggesting additional skills
in ship piloting and use of artillery weapons.

- 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.
