The Junk Guild is a large salvage organization made up of both Coordinators and Naturals, active both on Earth and in space. They are also hired on occasion to conduct repairs or for construction projects. They are completely neutral in any and all wars, and, theoretically, it is illegal throughout the Earth Sphere to attack a Junk Guild ship. Nonetheless, many Junk Guild ships possess weapons to defend themselves, and should not be underestimated.
Voice Actor: Masaya OnosakaA Natural member of the Junk Guild, and one of Astray's protagonists. He is impulsive, passionate, and a little stupid, but he's a genius mechanic and gets along well with almost everyone he meets. He pilots the Astray Red Frame, after finding it in the ruins of Heliopolis.
Voice Actor: Megumi Toyoguchi (SD Gundam G Generation SEED), Masayo Kurata (Gundam SEED Astray Promotional Video)Another Natural in Lowe's Junk Guild team. She has some self-confidence problems but is a skilled mechanic and decent pilot. She harbors a crush on Lowe, to which he is oblivious. She also collects George Glenn memorabilia. She pilots a customized BaCUE that once belonged to ZAFT commander Andrew Waltfield.
Voice Actor: Show HayamiA Coordinator on Lowe's team, he has a particular interest in Naturals, and finds observing Lowe's antics to be highly amusing. He often serves as the voice of reason on the Junk Guild. He pilots a worker variant of the GINN.
Voice Actor: Naomi Shindo (SD Gundam G Generation SEED), Ai Orikasa (Gundam SEED Astray Promotional Video)Her real name is unknown. A former scientist and friend of Orb's Erica Simmons. She serves as the team's leader and captain of HOME and, later, ReHOME. She and Lowe seem to think on the same wavelength at times, though she is considerably more level headed.
Voice Actor: Rikako AikawaAn AI that Lowe found on board a derelict ship, which he now carries around in a briefcase-like computer. Hachi is his constant companion and co-pilot of the Red Frame, as it has Mobile Suit combat algorithms in memory in case of an attack. In Destiny Astray, it is given to Jess Rabble and co-pilots the Out Frame, since it does not wish to accompany Lowe to Mars.
Voice Actor: Hideyuki HoriAn AI patterned off of the brain of the original Coordinator, which the Junk Guild came into possession of while on Earth. After the Professor builds him a holographic projector to use as a "body", he becomes the acting captain of the ReHOME. He... isn't exactly the legendary figure one would expect...
Yoon SefanFormer Orb scientist, she joined the Junk Guild after Orb's fall in the First Bloody Valentine War. Although a competent mechanic and engineer, she is rather clumsy and prone to emotional outbursts.
Voice Actor: Sachiko KojimaA mysterious boy introduced in X Astray sent to the Junk Guild by Rev. Malchio, he is yet another clone of Al da Flaga. He is a skilled pilot and a highly empathic and kind boy. He pilots the Dreadnought (X Astray) Gundam, a prototype to the Providence, which becomes particularly important because it is equipped with an N-Jammer Canceller.He apparently dies in his battle with Canard, but later shows up as the Supreme Librarian of Librarian Works, piloting the Nix Providence. It is unknown whether this is the actual Prayer, or a Carbon clone of him.
A small but well-known mercenary group with a reputation for professionalism. They are true mercenaries: taking no side save the one that pays them. Other than that, they tend to stay out of battles if there's no profit involved... though they will give aid to a select few who have earned their respect, such as the Junk Guild crew.
Voice Actor: Kazuhiko InoueLeader of the Serpent Tail mercenary group, Astray's other protagonist, and an accomplished mercenary. Though he is a Coordinator, he does not side with ZAFT, instead going along with whoever pays him. Despite this, he has a strong code of honor and morals, which leads to him and Lowe establishing a mutual friendship. He pilots the Astray Blue Frame, heavily modified to suit his tastes.
Voice Actor: Katsumi ToriumiThe other combatant in Serpent Tail, Elijah is Gai's wingman and an accomplished fighter of his own. Despite being a Coordinator, he does not have the physical benefits they usually enjoy, which hurts his piloting somewhat. He pilots a custom GINN, and later a ZAKU Phantom.
Voice Actor: Kumiko NishiharaThe only woman in Serpent Tail, and an expert in explosives and tactics. She left the Earth Alliance because her daughter, Kazahana, is a Coordinator.
Voice Actor: Yuu KobayashiLoretta's six-year-old (eight in Destiny) daughter, and Serpent Tail's liaison to their clients. Despite her age, she is extremely competent and fearless in the face of battle, though her concern for her fellow Serpent Tail members is obvious.

He returns as an ally in both Destiny Astray and Vs Astray.
Voice Actor: Yasunori MatsumotoA South American pilot during the Bloody Valentine War, near the war's conclusion he defected from the Alliance in order to support his home nation of South America in their bid for independence.

He pilots a Sword Calamity Gundam.
Voice Actor: Yumi ToumaEdward's former wingmate, and an expert in underwater mobile suit combat. Edward's desertion of the Alliance stings all the more terribly for her since she was in love with him. She pilots the Deep Forbidden Gundam.
Voice Actor: Asami MukaidonoOne of the Earth Alliance's top Aces, she initially pilots Dagger units, until upgrading to a Sword Calamity.

The Astray storyline largely focuses on the Sahaku family, one of the Orb Union's five ruling clans. Though currently the Athhas hold power, the Sahaku family is eager to turn the war to their advantage, and through it seize control. Not possessing much in the way of independent military strength, their focus is on information trafficking and political manipulation.

While still ambitious, she does not resort to the same underhanded tactics her brother did. She despises Lowe for his hand in Gina's death, but is willing to put aside her grudge if they need to work together.
A small group of colonies established in orbit around Mars. As they are very recently constructed, they are not entirely self-sufficient, and are often low on resources. Some Mars colonies have even begun to follow a plan similar to Durandal's Destiny Plan (in order to make the most efficient use of their limited human resources), and it is implied that they are where he got the idea. They are not interested in Earth's wars, but do send a delegation at the outbreak of the Second Bloody Valentine War to determine exactly what the political situation is.

The antagonists of Vs Astray, Librarian is a secret society that attacks the Earth Sphere following the conclusion of the Second Bloody Valentine War. They seek to cause a third war and overthrow Lacus and Cagalli, as they believe they are ill-suited to ruling the Earth Sphere. They have access to a technology that allows them to create "Carbon Humans", genetically-modified humans who have DNA and (somehow) memories of other people spliced into their genome.
ND HE (No Data: High Error)Librarian's best pilot, a mysterious man whose face is always hidden by his helmet. His true identity is unknown, although due to his age and exceptional piloting skills, he is rumored to be a Carbon clone of Kira Yamato. He pilots the Gale Strike.
Finis SociusA Carbon clone of a series of Earth Alliance produced clones, mixed with the DNA of Goud Veia. Although the Earth Alliance controlled these clone pilots carefully through brainwashing, this brand-new Socius possesses the free will his originals never did. He pilots the Hail Buster.
Voice Actor: Tetsu ShiratoriAnother Carbon clone, this time of Elijah Kiel's old friend. He has a split personality, one kind and gentle, the other murderous and violent. His DNA was also used as a template for Socius. He pilots the Vent Saviour Gundam.
Lily ThevalleyUnique among Librarian's Carbon Humans in that she isn't copied from any specific person, but is still instilled with enough combat knowledge and ability to make her an ace, though the process has left her mentally unstable. She pilots the Nebula Blitz Gundam, which appears to be capable of teleportation.

He pilots a Regen Duel Gundam.
