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 better said, 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, who goes Yandere for her in the second season
Voiced by Yoko Honna
(Japanese) and Lisa Ann Beley
- 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.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
- Brainy Brunette
- 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.
- Brown Eyes
- 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
- 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.
- Male Gaze
- Ms. Fanservice
- Sexy Mentor
- 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
- 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
- Bridge Bunny
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Fanservice Pack
- 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.
- Green Eyes
- 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.
- 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.
- Male Gaze
- 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
- 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.
- Plucky Girl
- Say My Name: "CHRISTINA SIERRAAAAAAAAA!!!!"
- 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.
- 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.
- When She Smiles
- 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. During the final battle of season 1, the bridge of Ptolemaios is attacked by a GN-X. Although Lichty shielded her from the attack, she is fatally wounded by a shred of metal from the shattered bridge. Before Lichty dies in her arms, she realizes her own feelings for him. She contacts the surviving crewmembers and tells Feldt to live on for Lockon's memory, before dying in the subsequent explosion.

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.
