    Marina Ismail 

The elected-in figurehead princess of Azadistan, a country so wrought with civil war that she is able to look out her window at any point in the series and see part of the capital burning. Marina is also the head of the Reformist political party, causing her to be very popular among some of her people, but vehemently hated by the conservatives. Inexperienced as a leader, and being only a figurehead, she often has no control over her country's situation despite her wishes for peace. After attracting the attention (probably not that kind of attention) of Setsuna, she's been unable to shake him off, and now he probably couldn't shake her off.

Voiced by Ayumi Tsunematsu (Japanese) and Paula Lindberg (English)
  • Actual Pacifist: Hates weapons so much that she can't even fathom using a gun for self-defense. Somewhat understandable due to her background, but still...
  • Odango Hair: Her princess hairstyle in season 1.
  • Platonic Life Partners: According to Setsuna and her, and they make sure to emphasize this.
  • Politically-Active Princess: While phrased as a compliment, her closest adviser tells her outright that she's far better at charitable work and being a good will ambassador than she is at politics and ruling.
  • Taking the Bullet: In the last scene of episode 18 of season 2, she blocked a bullet meant for a kid named Josef. Averted in the next episode, as Klaus shot the gunners down before they pull the trigger.
  • Team Mom: For the Kataron children in season 2.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Even earlier in Season 1, Shirin came off as more tough compared to Marina, fitting this in an emotional capacity. It just played straighter, with the toughened-up Shirin, in season 2.
  • Trauma Conga Line: pretty much her main purpose, having grown up in a country nearly destroyed through civil war, getting imprisoned because she met Setsuna, and then we he breaks her out she finds that her country was leveled.
  • Woman in White: In the second season.

    Shirin Bakhtiar 

Marina's best friend, adviser and lady in waiting, who does not doubt to scold Marina when she hesitates. After the formation of the Earth Sphere Federation, she leaves the Palace and becomes a member of the rebel group Katharon to keep fighting for Azadistan in her own way.

Voiced by Michiko Neya (Japanese) and Ellen Kennedy (English)
  • Adrenaline Makeover: Contrast her flowing dresses from season 1 with her baggy pants and tight t-shirt in the second one.

    Louise Halevy 

Ordinary High-School Student. Bratty Teenage Daughter. Clingy Jealous Girl in regards to her boyfriend Saji Crossroads. Annoying in the eyes of almost everyone, possibly useless in the plot...

...what. Did her family just get vaporized? Is she missing a hand now? Holy shit.

That was the story of Miss Louise Halevy, at least in season 1. She survives said ordeals and four years later we see her again, but she's now an embittered and hurt Ill Girl who works for the A-LAWS, hellbent on getting her revenge on Celestial Being, and a combination of her past trauma and background meddling have done neither her body nor her mentality too many favors.

Voiced by Chiwa Saito (Japanese) and Kelly Sheridan (English)

    Saji Crossroad 

Introduced as an Ordinary High-School Student and neighbor of Setsuna, with no real impact on the plotline. He had a part time job as a pizza delivery boy (his neighbor was in a terrorist paramilitary organization); he dealt with his girlfriend's mother (Azadistan was on the verge of civil war). etc. If he was in trouble, it made the fan base wish something bad would just happen already.

Then, it did. And some more. His older sister was found dead in an alley. His girlfriend was crippled and hospitalized. And everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, and now the only people on earth that will take him in is the very terrorist organization he hates the most. Which are the rivals to the military group that took his girlfriend in... We take it back, Saji. Sorry about that.

Voiced by Miyu Irino (Japanese) and Gabe Khouth (English)
  • Action Survivor: He's never really a fighter, but he does participate in battle as the pilot of the 0-Raiser.
  • Bash Brothers: With Setsuna in Season 2. Especially when he became the 0-Raiser's pilot.
  • BFS Beam: The Trans-Am Raiser used by the 00-Raiser which he and Setsuna co-pilot.
  • Break the Cutie and Butt Monkey: If something could go wrong for him, it certainly did. And then things got even worse.
  • Bridge Bunny: In season 2, he fills this position if he's not helping Ian until he become a Sixth Ranger with Soma.

    Kinue Crossroad 

The older sister to Saji and JNN reporter. She was obsessed with Celestial Being's founder, Aeolia Schenberg. She believes that by investigating into Aeolia, she can uncover the true motives of Celestial Being. Through her investigation, she interviewed Schenberg's great grandson and other people possibly linking to either the Gundams or Schenberg. Later, she suspected Laguna Harvey, president of Linear Train Industries, to be somehow connected to this and wanted to interview him. She couldn't get permission to interview him, but saw Ali Al-Saachez leaving from his estate and hoped to get any sort of information from him... Which was a bad idea. Ali does give her the information she wants - only to kill her afterwards.

Voiced by Aya Endo (Japanese) and Anna Cummer (English)

    Ali Al-Saachez 

By his own admission, the worst kind of human to ever exist. Ali starts out as a freedom fighter who recruits kids to fight in the name of 'God', this turns out to be false, as he didn't believe in God and was just a terrorist, period. One of those kids was Setsuna, and he also assaulted Ireland at one point, killing Lockon's parents and little sister. Later he became a mercenary and was reunited with Setsuna in battle. He continues to do really nefarious things afterwards, notably bribing and then killing Intrepid Reporter Kinue Crossroad For the Evulz.

When The Federation was formed, Ali was frustrated since it takes away his joy: war. But it didn't really happen as Ribbons hired him. And the next thing he did in his debut on the second season is... burning down the whole Azadistan, probably for the lulz.

Voiced by Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese) and Scott McNeil (English)
  • Ace Pilot: In the race for being the best of the series, on par with Graham Aker and possibly even innovator Setsuna. Feats include matching the Exia in swordplay (in an enact and in Throne Zwei) and taking on both Seravee and 00 at the same time, and coming out on top (in the Arche).
  • Arch-Enemy: Initially to Setsuna in Season 1, then to Tieria and Lyle in Season 2.
  • Badass: He is one of the best fighters in the series, hands down.
    • Badass Beard of Evil: Shaves it in the second half of the first season. Sports it again during the entire second season.
    • Badass Boast: After seeing Setsuna and Marina arrive to a recently-razed Azadistan, which is his own doing by the way, this exchange occurs:
    Setsuna: That's a Gundam. And its color... IT CAN'T BE!
    Ali: OH, BUT IT IS!
    • Badass Normal: Able to defeat Gundams in less tech-advanced suits.
  • Bad Samaritan: To Kinue
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Oh, so much. To horrific degrees.
  • Blood Knight: He lives only for war, it's his only source of joy. He even admits it openly.
  • Boom, Headshot: What Lyle/Lockon II did to finally put him out.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Freely admits to being the worst kind of person ever.

    Klaus Grado 

He is the commander and the de facto leader of the Katharon Rebel Group, which opposes the Earth Sphere Federation and its elite squad A-Laws.
