An advocate of transhumanism, he became a full-fledged MadScientist with a god complex over the years and became infamous for his numerous experiments with Gauna, even creating a half-human hybrid of such.

Nagate's "grandfather", a legendary guardian pilot and also one of the original founding members of the Sidonia's Immortal Committee. He was the Sidonia's top Ace for centuries until 100 years ago when Ochiai deliberately abandoned all 28 Kabizashi in space, leaving the Ship defenseless. It only took him only 4 minutes to locate and retrieve the Kabizashi, but in that time ''99 percent'' of the ship's population had been consumed by the Gauna. Finally burnt out after 500 years of service, Saito retired from piloting and stopped ingesting the immortality drugs that were keeping him young and fit. He went missing soon afterwords, and it was over 80 years before Kobayashi and Lala finally managed to locate him. In that time, old age had finally caught up to him and he was in failing health; despite this, he refused to seek medical attention or get a brain transplant into a younger body, as he simply wanted to age and die like a normal person. Kobayashi, however, was not about to let the Sidonia loose it's top ace, so she sent a sample of his cells of to the cloning labs, leading to the creation of Nagate. When Saito learned that he had been cloned a replacement body without his consent, it was the final straw. Considering Nagate his "son", he fought his way into the Cloning labs and took him out of his incubator prematurely. Kobayashi and Lala then arrived on the scene with reinforcements and tried to make him stand down, but Saito would have none of it. Declaring his intention to raise and train Nagate himself, he fought off the security team (with a little help from Lala), and then vanished into bowels of the Sidonia.

[[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ochiai_230.jpg]]

A member of
the Gauna, three Garde-shaped Gauna, dubbed GA-489 through 491, pilot squad who first killed a Gauna when the Kabi were encountered. While 489 found. Became a member of Sidonia's immortal council alongside Kobayashi, Hiroki and 491 were dispatched with relative ease, Gauna-490 displayed a sadistic intelligence and escaped to become a reoccurring antagonist, earning the moniker "Crimson Hawk Moth". GA-491's "Ena pilot" was captured by Nagate, developing a childlike personality and retaining fragments Lala. An advocate of Shizuka's memories, but was taken and impregnated by Ochiai, giving birth to Tsumugi Shiraui and Kanata. Gauna-490 transhumanism, he became a reoccurring antagonist before being destroyed by Tsumugi full-fledged MadScientist with a god complex over the years and Nagate, though her Ena pilot was secured before became infamous for his numerous experiments with Gauna, even creating a half-human hybrid of such. Eventually, he nearly caused the destruction of her true Sidonia 100 years prior to the series' start, and destroyed half of the ship's accumulated knowledge, storing it in an auxiliary brain, hoping to use it as leverage so that he could keep his life.

Through Yure Shinatose's efforts, his brain was transplanted into a clone and his memories were sealed away so that the auxiliary brain could be safely accessed. Said clone now works loyally and efficiently for Sidonia, working as an intermediate of Kobayashi.

He makes a comeback when Kunato enters one of his laboratories and hijacks his
body, pretending to be him. Using the Ena-copy of Hoshijiro recovered by Nagate and was his knowledge, he creates a Chimera named Tsumugi. He later implanted with Tsumugi's consciousness.creates a second chimera, Kanata.


Added DiffLines:

* AdmiringTheAbomination: He thinks Gauna are ''far'' superior to humans and wants to find a way of turning himself into something stronger via the Chimera.
* AintTooProudToBeg: In the final firefight, Ochiai resorts to this. Specifically, he gives Tanikaze a WhatTheHellHero speech for trying to destroy humanity's best chance of survival, and when that fails to sway Nagate, offers him a chance to see Shizuka Hoshijiro again. It doesn't work.
* AGodAmI: A fit of his almost wasted the whole ship 100 years ago and forced everyone else to ice him. The usually good guy in the black suit is his clone.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Wants to become a living god.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: After heavy cybernetic modifications, he could go out in space without spacesuit.
* BodySurf: He uses a Blood Nematode to take over Kunato's body, then transfers his consciousness to Kanata.
* BrainInAJar: His auxiliary brain is kept locked away in a vault so that he can't wreck havoc.
* FaceHeelTurn: Turned on Sidonia after Kobayashi ordered him to shut down his Gauna research.
* FallenHero: He saved Sidonia and his comrades multiple times with the use of his scientific knowledge and inventions, but his arrogance led him to throw away Sidonia's Kabi to prove that Gauna are attracted to them, and this nearly ends up destroying all of Sidonia.
* GrandTheftMe: He takes over Kunato's body, and later takes over Kanata as well.
* IWasQuiteALooker: As shown by some flashbacks and by his clone, Ochiai used to be quite attractive before he got involved with transhumanism.
* {{Jerkass}}: Much more so than even Kunato. He enjoys being smug about every questionable thing he did, as well.
* KickTheDog: Ochiai kills [[MoralityPet Mozuku]] very casually and resurrects her for one of his collaborator. Then he also kills a civilian HotScientist afterwards to cover up Kanata's malfunction.
** When he takes over Kanata, he has an internal monologue that he will eventually destroy Sidonia.
* MadScientist: He wants to become the ultimate life form, and is willing to kill anyone who gets in his way.
* ManipulativeBastard: Nobody knows he's taken over Kunato, and he's using that fact to continue his research into Gauna-human hybrids from 100 years ago.
* MesACrowd: There are at least two of him running around the Sidonia: one having possessed Kunato, and the other acting as Captain Kobayashi's right hand.
* PuppeteerParasite: He does this to Kunato via his "blood nematode".
* SealedEvilInACan: After he was captured at the end of the Fourth Gauna Defense War.
* ShutUpKirk: Belittles anyone who questions his vision of immortality.
* SmugSnake: He was Sidonia's greatest scientist. Unfortunately for everyone, his ego was even bigger.
* TranshumanTreachery: Transhumanism in general isn't a bad thing in the series, but Ochiai's heavily modified, almost monstrous cyborg body is a clear case of the dangers of going too far. His experiments with creating Chimera are an effort to turn himself into the perfect human-Gauna hybrid
* UltimateLifeform: His main goal is to become one.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Turns out really he did want to protect the people of Sidonia. His mother died protecting the Ship from the Gauna, and he swore to take up her mission. When Lala had her accident and had to be confined to life support, it gave him the idea of finding new bodies for the crew instead of finding a new home, which lead to his obsession with the Gauna. However, that obssesion became more and more twisted over the centuries and he eventually went off the deep end.

!! Clone Ochiai

A clone of Ochiai created to serve as a key to unlocking his [[SealedEvilInACan locked-away auxiliary brain]]. Kobayashi co-opted him to act as her NumberTwo, and he is loyal to her and to the Sidonia.

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shiraui_tsumugi_4549.png]]

[[HalfHumanHybrid Half-human and half-Gauna]], Tsumugi was created from the first Hoshijiro Ena and Ochiai's knowledge of Gauna as a chimera, a bio-weapon of mass destruction. Despite having astoundingly devastating powers, Tsumugi has an very gentle, curious, and kind-hearted personality comparable to that of a child's. She feels a connection to Nagate that is reciprocated immediately, probably because of who her "mother" is. She becomes close friends with him and Izana, and they serve to ground her and keep her from doing reckless things.

Despite being fully aware of her origins and the motive for her creation, her innocence and loyalty towards her 'father' make her one of Sidonia's greatest assets.

* AbsurdlySharpClaws: She can form artificial Kabi talons sharp enough to rip through a Gauna's true body.
* ACupAngst: The Crimson Hawk Moth body's bust shrinks once it fully integrates her mind, much to her annoyance.
* ActionGirl: Is quite a fierce fighter due to her hatred of Gauna.
* AlienLunch: The rice pot she cooks comes out nightmarish, with unidentifiable lumps and a fish head protruding out. It's rather literal, as Tsumugi is half-alien.
* BabiesEverAfter: She and Nagate have a daughter named Nodoka.
* BadassAdorable: While most considered her to be frightening at first, her interaction form is cute and her cheerful personality wins everyone over. It also helps that she's one of the strongest warriors on Sidonia.
* TheBerserker: When she's badly injured during her second sortie, she snaps that ThisIsUnforgivable and ignores orders to launch herself claws first into a swarm of Gauna, screaming in rage the whole while. Izana taking a bullet - or tentacle in this case - to protect her snaps her out of it.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's friendly and loving, but extremely deadly when mad. Tsuruuchi made the mistake of teasing her over Nagate's absence when the latter was on a date with Izana, and offered himself as a replacement. Tsumugi agreed... and nearly destroyed his Garde with her insane strength and speed. When Izana was stranded on Lem VII, Tsumugi would have gone rogue to rescue her had Kobayashi not sanctioned a rescue op, realizing that she risked losing two of Sidonia's greatest assets (Tsumugi and Nagate) if she refused.
* BodyHorror: Due to her ability to regenerate, she's suffered horrifying injuries taking on more powerful Gauna.
* BrainUploading: Yure used Ochiai's mind uploading technology to implant Tsumugi's consciousness and memories into the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot.
* BullyingADragon: When the Guardian pilot Kouichi Tsuruuchi teases her over Nagate missing his teamwork practise, Tsumugi suggests he join her instead and almost destroys his inferior Garde in the process.
* CatchPhrase: A ''very'' cheerful "Thank you so much!"
* ClingyJealousGirl: Due largely to Yuhata, she exhibits some of this after finding out Nagate went off to a resort area with Izana alone. The two of them attempt to do a DatePeepers moment, but unfortunately she is late because of a routine exam on her body.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: After seeing Nagate's reaction to the second Hoshijiro Ena after its capture, she takes on Shizuka's appearance and dresses in some of Izana's clothes to surprise him. [[FreakOut It backfired]].
* {{Dreamwalker}}: Enters into Nagate's dreams at one point and assumes the form of Hoshijiro.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Like it or not, her interaction form kind of looks like a dong.
* GentleGiant: A female example, since she's the same height as the [[GiantMecha Garde]] but outside of combat is sweet and caring.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Is the daughter of the first Hoshijiro Ena and Kunato[=/=]Ochiai, making her half-human and half-Gauna.
* HeroicSacrifice: She performs one in the final confrontation between Nagate and Kanata. Despite being badly damaged, she dives into the Lem system's star to help pull Nagate out of its gravity well and fuses her Ena to his Garde to protect him from the intense heat. She survives long enough to thank him for making her happy before being incinerated.
* HumanoidAbomination:
** In her original body, she was a human-Gauna hybrid and very Lovecraftian in appearance, though she's firmly on the side of humans and once people get used to her they find her charming and adorable.
** After her mind is transferred to the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot, she's completely human in form... except that her body is comprised of ena and has access to the same VoluntaryShapeshifting abilities that the pilot Ena originally possessed, though she hasn't consciously used them.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She wishes she could assume human form so she could stay with Nagate in person rather than using her tentacle as a proxy. She gets her wish when her consciousness is uploaded into the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot.
* IllKillYou: When fighting Gauna 490, she states that her sole purpose is exterminating it.
* KindheartedCatLover: Fond of the cat who lives in the Shinatose residence.
* LightEmUp: She can generate [[EyeBeam intense ultraviolet radiation]] from her left eye.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Played quite straight, although nobody except Ochiai himself is aware of it.
* MismatchedEyes: After her consciousness was implanted in the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot, both her eyes were initially black. Her right eye turned red with a square-shaped pupil after the Crimson Hawk Moth's body fully integrated her mind due to being covered with Ena.
* MultipleHeadCase: She has a retractable tentacle in her chest that can extend to colossal lengths and is equipped with a single eye and a number of smaller tentacles. She uses it to interact with the humans on a more personal basis, and can also shapeshift it to human form.
* MyBloodRunsHot: When she becomes embarrassed her skin becomes superheated.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: She's powerful enough to take down regular Gauna ''easily''. She even manages to defeat the Crimson Hawk Moth somewhat easily. It was only due to the CHW's pilot resembling Shizuka that threw her off and gave the remaining ena time to attack.
* PinkMeansFeminine: In the anime her exoskeleton is pink and red, and she's quite feminine.
* SecondLove: She is this for Nagate, who previously fell in love with her "mother".
* StomachOfHolding: She has a biomechanical cockpit inside her abdominal cavity that is connected to a mouth-like aperture in her tail.
* WhatTheHellHero: Berates Kobayashi and Yure for trying to kill Kanata just after she'd gotten him to calm down.

It only took him only 4 minutes to locate and retrieve the Kabizashi, but in that time ''99 percent'' of the ship's population had been consumed
by the Gauna, three Garde-shaped Gauna, dubbed GA-489 through 491, Gauna. Finally burnt out after 500 years of service, Saito retired from piloting and stopped ingesting the immortality drugs that were encountered. While 489 keeping him young and 491 were dispatched with relative ease, Gauna-490 displayed a sadistic intelligence fit. He went missing soon afterwords, and escaped to become a reoccurring antagonist, earning the moniker "Crimson Hawk Moth". GA-491's "Ena pilot" it was captured by Nagate, developing a childlike personality and retaining fragments of Shizuka's memories, but was taken and impregnated by Ochiai, giving birth to Tsumugi Shiraui and Kanata. Gauna-490 became a reoccurring antagonist over 80 years before being destroyed by Tsumugi Kobayashi and Nagate, though her Ena pilot Lala finally managed to locate him. In that time, old age had finally caught up to him and he was also secured before in failing health; despite this, he refused to seek medical attention or get a brain transplant into a younger body, as he simply wanted to age and die like a normal person. Kobayashi, however, was not about to let the destruction Sidonia loose it's top ace, so she sent a sample of her true body.his cells of to the cloning labs, leading to the creation of Nagate. When Saito learned that he had been cloned a replacement body without his consent, it was the final straw. Considering Nagate his "son", he fought his way into the Cloning labs and took him out of his incubator prematurely. Kobayashi and Lala then arrived on the scene with reinforcements and tried to make him stand down, but Saito would have none of it. Declaring his intention to raise and train Nagate himself, he fought off the security team (with a little help from Lala), and then vanished into bowels of the Sidonia.



* AttackHello: Once put in containment, GA-491's Ena pilot's first response to seeing Nagate was to launch a flurry of tendrils at him.
* BishonenLine: After regenerating a second time, the Crimson Hawk Moth emerges from the Large Mass Union Ship and sheds her Garde body to reveal a winged, skeletal version of Shizuka. After draining Tsumugi's Heigus reserves she becomes even more powerful and develops an exoskeletal appearance.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: She could extend and fire kabi blades from her wrists in her second and third forms.
* BodyHorror: After being impregnated by Ochiai, 491's Ena-copy's body undergoes grotesque transformations during Tsumugi's gestation.
* BrainUploading: Yure uploads Tsumugi's consciousness into the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot, though faint traces of Hoshijiro's personality remain.
* BreathWeapon: The Guardian portion of its body can spit crimson Higgs beams.
* CurbStompBattle: The Crimson Hawk Moth easily tore apart any Garde not piloted by Nagate. Tsumugi briefly turned the tables, but the sight of the Crimson Hawk Moth's pilot Ena caused her to let her guard down.
* CuteMonsterGirl: The first Hoshijiro Ena's interactions with Nagate were adorable.
* DemBones: The Crimson Hawk Moth's second form was skeletal in appearance.
* DoppelgangerAttack: She creates Ena replicas as a diversion during her second assault and disguises herself as Izana's damaged Garde to infiltrate the enemy.
* EnergyAbsorption: Gauna 490 drained Tsumugi's Heigus particle supply during their fight, and would have killed her if Nagate hadn't intervened.
* EvilUncle: Gender-flipped: GA-490 nearly killed Tsumugi, who is the daughter of GA-491 - for all intents and purposes GA-490's twin sister.
* ExpendableClone: There were three Gauna who assumed the shape of Garde, dubbed Gauna 489 through 491. 489 and 491 are killed in the first confrontation, but the one named Gauna 490/Crimson Hawk Moth by humans escapes. When next seen in the manga, she leads 47 other Garde-type Gauna against an equal number of Gardes.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Gauna 490 has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] with a grid-like array of white pupils. In her second and third forms, her left eye has a ring of white dots framing her iris instead. In the DistantFinale, she - or rather, Tsumugi in her body - has one black eye and one red eye with a square white pupil.
* EyeBeams: Her third form could fire Heiggus particle beams from her right eye powerful enough to damage the prototype Type 20 Garde.
* FangsAreEvil: Gauna 490's helmet has a fanged mouth on it.
* FullFrontalAssault: The Crimson Hawk Moth sticks her stark naked Ena pilot into Tanikaze's cockpit in an attempt to kill him. Her third form also has chinks in its pelvic armor that strongly resemble female genitalia.
* GigglingVillain: Gauna 490 seemed to find killing its former comrades amusing, since it was laughing throughout its first sortie.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: The Guardians are robotic and white, while the Crimson Hawk Moth is biomechanical and crimson. In the anime, the Heigus energy emitted by the Guardians is blue, whereas the energy emitted by the Crimson Hawk Moth and the other Gauna is red.
* HeroKiller: Gauna 490/Crimson Hawk Moth probably generates more human deaths than any other Gauna in the manga, wiping out a squadron and a half by itself in one sortie.
* HimeCut: Like their template, the Garde-type Gauna have SciFiBobHaircut versions of this.
* HumanoidAbomination: The Crimson Hawk Moth and the other Garde-type Gauna were formed using Hoshijiro and her Garde as a template. Later on, the Gauna 490 transforms into a more humanoid form with Hoshijiro's face.
* HumanAliens: The Ena copies possess a replica human skeletal structure and organs.
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: Nagate tries this early-on with the Crimson Hawk Moth, pleading with her to stop killing their friends.
* IronicEcho: As she's about to finish off Tsumugi, she repeats the latter's words to her when their positions were reversed.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: The blood-red Gauna 490, code-named "Crimson Hawk Moth", vastly outperforms every Guardian pilot except Nagate.
* LightningBruiser: Of the 51 Garde-type Gauna, Gauna 490 was faster, stronger, and more skilled, enabling it to become a reoccurring antagonist and earning it the codename "Crimson Hawk Moth". It's even capable out out-dogfighting Nagate.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: The Garde-type Gauna were capable of projecting tentacles, firing energy beams, and shapeshifting. Their main bodies resembled a biomechanical Guardian with a [[SkullForAHead skull for a cockpit]], and their Ena pilots are clad in biomechanical exoskeletons resembling Guarde pilot suits. Even the Ena pilots possess a degree of this, being capable of projecting tentacles, shapeshifting clothing.
* ManChild: Guana 491's pilot Ena's activities - when not floating in midair and staring at the Kabi spear containment area - consisted of sounding out Nagate's name syllable by syllable, and writing it on the walls of her chamber. She even seemed dismayed when she [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally snapped a felt pen with a tentacle]] while doing so and tried to fix it by putting the two halves together, like a child would. It makes what Ochiai did to her all the more disgusting.
* MatryoshkaObject: When not floating outside, the Garde-type Gauna's pilot Enas are seated in a cockpit-like cavity within their Guardian-shaped main bodies.
* MetamorphosisMonster: After regenerating for the second time, it undergoes a metamorphosis into a [[DemBones skeletal]], winged version of Hoshijiro. After this form is shredded by Tsumugi, she catches the Chimera off-guard and drains her Heigus Particle stores to regenerate into a fleshed-out version of her second form that's stated to be many times more powerful than before.
* MonsterIsAMommy: The first captured Ena copy is impregnated by Ochiai and gives birth to Tsumugi and Kanata.
* NowOrNeverKiss: After Gauna 490 was blown in half by Nagate, it sticks its naked pilot Ena into his cockpit and kisses him in order to smother him with tendrils. Nagate's fellow pilot Tsuruuchi later snarked that he was surprised Nagate didn't jump her then and there.
* NotQuiteDead: Gauna 490 has been seemingly killed by Nagate ''twice'', with only her True Body escaping.
* OfficialKiss: Gauna 490 gives Nagate his first kiss while trying to kill him.
* OrganicTechnology: The Crimson Hawk Moth's main body is a blood-red and white biomechanical replica of Hoshijiro's Guardian with a skull for a cockpit [[note]]Although Gauna 490 eventually took on the form of a giant, winged version of Hoshijiro herself[[/note]], and its Pilot Ena is often dressed in a red organic version of the Guardian pilot uniforms.
* PastLifeMemories: While regenerating, the Crimson Hawk Moth would experience fragments of Shizuka's memories, growing stronger with each regeneration.
* PutOnABus: The first captured replica seemed to retain some of Hoshijiro's memories of Nagate, but is seized by Ochiai before that can be explored. The second replica pilot is left in Tanikaze's cockpit when the Crimson Hawk Moth is destroyed, but is put in a facility well outside Ochiai's reach. It's stated that although the Crimson Hawk Moth Pilot is a replicate of her, it will briefly regain her memory and identity when the Gauna core loses its control when rebuilding the Ena structure, hinting that the Gauna 490's Pilot may have fully gained Hoshijiro's memory.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Aside from listing a [[BodyCountCompetition kill score]], Gauna 490 was laughing eerily while it utterly decimated every Garde it went up against.
* RedBaron: Gauna 490 earns the codename "Crimson Hawk Moth".
* SkullForAHead: The Crimson Hawk Moth's cockpit resembles a skull.
* SpikeShooter: She could fire a barrage of kabi needles from her arms.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the three Garde-type Gauna, Gauna 490 was the only survivor of their first sortie and becomes a reoccurring threat until Nagate and Tsumugi finally defeat her.
* TheStrategist: After the Crimson Hawk Moth was created, the Gauna became far more strategic and efficient in copying and adapting to the Sidonia's technological advances. After each of her defeats, it was noted that without her to lead them the Gauna were a far easier enemy to face.
* TwinTelepathy: 491's Ena copy had its gaze fixed on where the Kobizashi spears were stored, and the anime implies she was transmitting this intel to 490.
* UnexplainedRecovery: The anime didn't show her core had survived or her metamorphosis into a more humanoid form, skipping straight to her third form and making her reappearance more abrupt and jarring than in the manga.
* WomanInWhite: The first Ena copy morphs its half-destroyed combat exoskeleton into a white-and-red dress when Nagate visits it for the last time. Numi[[note]]having recently been infected by one of Ochiai's blood nematodes and possibly seeing a chance to engineer a chimera[[/note]] [[MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat asks if he wants to enter the containment chamber]].
** Before what Ochiai did is revealed, that Ena is shown to have morphed a longer, more beautiful dress. Turns out that dress is just cover for the BodyHorror ahead.

Following Shizuka Hoshijiro's assimilation by the Gauna, three Garde-shaped Gauna, dubbed GA-489 through 491, were encountered. While 489 and 491 were dispatched with relative ease, Gauna-490 displayed a sadistic intelligence and escaped to become a reoccurring antagonist, earning the moniker "Crimson Hawk Moth". GA-491's "Ena pilot" was captured by Nagate, developing a childlike personality and retaining fragments of Shizuka's memories, but was taken and impregnated by Ochiai, giving birth to Tsumugi Shiraui and Kanata. Gauna-490 became a reoccurring antagonist before being destroyed by Tsumugi and Nagate, though her Ena pilot was secured before the destruction of her true body, and was later implanted with Tsumugi's consciousness.

* NumberTwo: He LovecraftianSuperpower: The Garde-type Gauna were capable of projecting tentacles, firing energy beams, and shapeshifting. Their main bodies resembled a biomechanical Guardian with a [[SkullForAHead skull for a cockpit]], and their Ena pilots are clad in biomechanical exoskeletons resembling Guarde pilot suits. Even the Ena pilots possess a degree of this, being capable of projecting tentacles and shapeshifting clothing.
* ManChild: Guana 491's pilot Ena's activities - when not floating in midair and staring at the Kabi spear containment area - consisted of sounding out Nagate's name syllable by syllable, and writing it on the walls of her chamber. She even seemed dismayed when she [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength accidentally snapped a felt pen with a tentacle]] while doing so and tried to fix it by putting the two halves together, like a child would. It makes what Ochiai did to her all the more disgusting.
* MatryoshkaObject: When not floating outside, the Garde-type Gauna's pilot Enas are seated in a cockpit-like cavity within their Guardian-shaped main bodies.
* MetamorphosisMonster: After regenerating for the second time, it undergoes a metamorphosis into a [[DemBones skeletal]], winged version of Hoshijiro. After this form is shredded by Tsumugi, she catches the Chimera off-guard and drains her Heigus Particle stores to regenerate into a fleshed-out version of her second form that's stated to be many times more powerful than before.
* MonsterIsAMommy: The first captured Ena copy is impregnated by Ochiai and gives birth to Tsumugi and Kanata.
* NowOrNeverKiss: After Gauna 490 was blown in half by Nagate, it sticks its naked pilot Ena into his cockpit and kisses him in order to smother him with tendrils. Nagate's fellow pilot Tsuruuchi later snarked that he was surprised Nagate didn't jump her then and there.
* NotQuiteDead: Gauna 490 has been seemingly killed by Nagate ''twice'', with only her True Body escaping.
* OfficialKiss: Gauna 490's Ena pilot gives Nagate his first kiss while trying to kill him.
* OrganicTechnology: The Crimson Hawk Moth's main body is a blood-red and white biomechanical replica of Hoshijiro's Guardian with a skull for a cockpit [[note]]Although Gauna 490 eventually took on the form of a giant, winged version of Hoshijiro herself[[/note]], and its Pilot Ena is often dressed in a red organic version of the Guardian pilot uniforms.
* PastLifeMemories: While regenerating, the Crimson Hawk Moth would experience fragments of Shizuka's memories, growing stronger with each regeneration. After being implanted into 490's Ena body, Tsumugi remarks that there are still faint remnants of Shizuka's persona within her.
* PutOnABus: The first captured replica seemed to retain some of Hoshijiro's memories of and affection for Nagate, but was seized by Ochiai before that could be explored. The second replica pilot is left in Tanikaze's cockpit when the Crimson Hawk Moth is destroyed, but is put in a facility well outside Ochiai's reach. It's stated that although the Crimson Hawk Moth Pilot is a replicate of her, it will briefly regain her memory and identity when the Gauna core loses its control when rebuilding the Ena structure.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Aside from listing a [[BodyCountCompetition kill score]], Gauna 490 was laughing eerily while it utterly decimated every Garde it went up against.
* RedBaron: Gauna 490 earns the codename "Crimson Hawk Moth".
* SkullForAHead: The Crimson Hawk Moth's cockpit resembles a skull.
* SpikeShooter: She could fire a barrage of kabi needles from her arms.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the three Garde-type Gauna, Gauna 490
was the Commander's Aide only survivor of their first sortie and becomes a reoccurring threat until Yuhata replaces him.
Nagate and Tsumugi finally defeat her.
* TheStrategist: He After the Crimson Hawk Moth was created, the Commander's Aide before returning Gauna became far more strategic and efficient in copying and adapting to the field, Sidonia's technological advances. After each of her defeats, it was noted that without her to lead them the Gauna were a far easier enemy to face.
* TwinTelepathy: 491's Ena copy had its gaze fixed on where the Kobizashi spears were stored,
and handpicked Yuhata Midorikawa as his replacement. [[CovertPervert He also spread a rumor about how the anime implies she was transmitting this intel to get 490.
* UnexplainedRecovery: The anime didn't show her core had survived or her metamorphosis into a more humanoid form, skipping straight to her third form and making her reappearance more abrupt and jarring than in the manga.
* WomanInWhite: The first Ena copy morphs its half-destroyed combat exoskeleton into a white-and-red dress when Nagate visits it for the last time. Numi[[note]]having recently been infected by one of Ochiai's blood nematodes and possibly seeing
a chance to photosynthesize with Samari, as an effort engineer a chimera[[/note]] [[MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat asks if he wants to boost morale enter the containment chamber]]. Before what Ochiai did is revealed, that Ena is shown to have morphed a longer, more beautiful dress. Turns out that dress is just cover for the male pilots.]]

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shiraui_tsumugi_4549.png]]

[[HalfHumanHybrid Half-human and half-Gauna]], Tsumugi was created from the first Hoshijiro Ena and Ochiai's knowledge of Gauna as a chimera, a bio-weapon of mass destruction. Despite having astoundingly devastating powers, Tsumugi has an very gentle, curious, and kind-hearted personality comparable to that of a child's. She feels a connection to Nagate that is reciprocated immediately, probably because of who her "mother" is. She becomes close friends with him and Izana, and they serve to ground her and keep her from doing reckless things.

Despite being fully aware of her origins and the motive for her creation, her innocence and loyalty towards her 'father' make her one of Sidonia's greatest assets.




to:

* AbsurdlySharpClaws: She can form artificial Kabi talons sharp enough to rip through a Gauna's true body.
* ACupAngst: The Crimson Hawk Moth body's bust shrinks once it fully integrates her mind, much to her dismay and annoyance.
* ActionGirl: Is quite a fierce fighter due to her hatred of Gauna.
* AlienLunch: The rice pot she cooks comes out nightmarish, with unidentifiable lumps and a fish head protruding out. It's rather literal, as Tsumugi is half-alien.
* BabiesEverAfter: She and Nagate have a daughter named Nodoka.
* BadassAdorable: While most considered her to be frightening at first, her interaction form is cute and her cheerful personality wins everyone over. It also helps that she's one of the strongest warriors on Sidonia.
* TheBerserker: When she's badly injured during her second sortie, she snaps that ThisIsUnforgivable and ignores orders to launch herself claws first into a swarm of Gauna, screaming in rage the whole while. Izana taking a bullet - or tentacle in this case - to protect her snaps her out of it.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's friendly and loving, but extremely deadly when mad. Tsuruuchi made the mistake of teasing her over Nagate's absence when the latter was on a date with Izana, and offered himself as a replacement. Tsumugi agreed... and nearly destroyed his Garde with her insane strength and speed. When Izana was stranded on Lem VII, Tsumugi would have gone rogue to rescue her had Kobayashi not sanctioned a rescue op, realizing that she risked losing two of Sidonia's greatest assets (Tsumugi and Nagate) if she refused.
* BodyHorror: Due to her ability to regenerate, she's suffered horrifying injuries taking on more powerful Gauna.
* BrainUploading: Yure used Ochiai's mind uploading technology to implant Tsumugi's consciousness and memories into the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot.
* BullyingADragon: When the Guardian pilot Kouichi Tsuruuchi teases her over Nagate missing his teamwork practise, Tsumugi suggests he join her instead and almost destroys his inferior Garde in the process.
* CatchPhrase: A ''very'' cheerful "Thank you so much!"
* ClingyJealousGirl: Due largely to Yuhata, she exhibits some of this after finding out Nagate went off to a resort area with Izana alone. The two of them attempt to do a DatePeepers moment, but unfortunately she is late because of a routine exam on her body.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: After seeing Nagate's reaction to the second Hoshijiro Ena after its capture, she takes on Shizuka's appearance and dresses in some of Izana's clothes to surprise him. [[FreakOut It backfired]].
* {{Dreamwalker}}: Enters into Nagate's dreams at one point and assumes the form of Hoshijiro.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Like it or not, her interaction form kind of looks like a dong.
* GentleGiant: A female example, since she's the same height as the [[GiantMecha Garde]] but outside of combat is sweet and caring.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Is the daughter of the first Hoshijiro Ena and Kunato[=/=]Ochiai, making her half-human and half-Gauna.
* HeroicSacrifice: She performs one in the final confrontation between Nagate and Kanata. Despite being badly damaged, she dives into the Lem system's star to help pull Nagate out of its gravity well and fuses her Ena to his Garde to protect him from the intense heat. She survives long enough to thank him for making her happy before being incinerated.
* HumanoidAbomination:
** In her original body, she was a human-Gauna hybrid and very Lovecraftian in appearance, though she's firmly on the side of humans and once people get used to her they find her charming and adorable.
** After her mind is transferred to the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot, she's completely human in form... except that her body is comprised of Ena and has access to the same VoluntaryShapeshifting abilities that the pilot Ena originally possessed, though she hasn't consciously used them.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She wishes she could assume human form so she could stay with Nagate in person rather than using her tentacle as a proxy. She gets her wish when her consciousness is uploaded into the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot.
* IllKillYou: When fighting Gauna 490, she states that her sole purpose is exterminating it.
* KindheartedCatLover: Fond of the cat who lives in the Shinatose residence.
* LightEmUp: She can generate [[EyeBeam intense ultraviolet radiation]] from her left eye.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Played quite straight, although nobody except Ochiai himself is aware of it.
* MismatchedEyes: After her consciousness was implanted in the Crimson Hawk Moth's Ena pilot, both her eyes were initially black. Her right eye turned red with a square-shaped pupil after the Crimson Hawk Moth's body fully integrated her mind due to being covered with Ena.
* MultipleHeadCase: She has a retractable tentacle in her chest that can extend to colossal lengths and is equipped with a single eye and a number of smaller tentacles. She uses it to interact with the humans on a more personal basis, and can also shapeshift it to human form.
* MyBloodRunsHot: When she becomes embarrassed -- as when Tanikaze confessed to her -- her skin becomes superheated.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: She's powerful enough to take down regular Gauna ''easily''. She even manages to defeat the Crimson Hawk Moth somewhat easily. It was only due to the Crimson Hawk Moth's pilot resembling Shizuka that threw her off and gave the remaining ena time to attack.
* PinkMeansFeminine: In the anime her exoskeleton is pink and red, and she's quite feminine.
* SecondLove: She is this for Nagate, who previously fell in love with her "mother".
* StomachOfHolding: She has a biomechanical cockpit inside her abdominal cavity that is connected to a mouth-like aperture in her tail.
* WhatTheHellHero: Berates Kobayashi and Yure for trying to kill Kanata just after she'd gotten him to calm down.

[[folder:Kanata]]

The second chimera born from the first captured Hoshijiro Ena and Ochiai, he proved to be far more unstable than his sister. [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot Curiosity got the better of him]] when exploring the research labs and he suffered a mental breakdown, blasting a hole through the hull of the Sidonia in the process. In Chapter 64, he is released by Ochiai and taken over.
----
* CuriosityIsACrapshoot: Like Tsumugi, he uses his tentacle-eye to explore the Sidonia through the pipes, but comes across a lab containing his mother and presumably several other prototype chimera and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation has a mental breakdown]] as a result.
* EyeScream: He's lacking a right eye and has a WaveMotionGun in its place.
* FacialHorror: He has an empty socket for a right eye that can turn into a Gravity Emission cannon.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: He has a psychotic breakdown when he sees his horribly deformed mother.
* GrandTheftMe: He is taken over by Ochiai, and ultimately slain by Nagate.
* HalfHumanHybrid: He's the son of the first Hoshijiro Ena and Kunato[=/=]Ochiai, and is Tsumugi's younger brother.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Had a RestrainingBolt rammed through his head after his freak-out.
* NotQuiteDead: His Core is destroyed and he dissolves into foam... only to reveal that he has a second core and reform.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Probably more so than Tsumugi, due to possessing a WaveMotionGun.
* WaveMotionGun: He has a [[{{Manga/Blame}} Graviton Radiation Emitter]] in his eye powerful enough to punch clean through the Sidonia's hull and leave a very visible hole in a nearby moon.

* OurNudityIsDifferent: When her armored mode is active she doesn't consider herself to be naked even if she's not wearing clothing. [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Unfortunately for her, she has very little control over when it activates or deactivates]].
* PowerIncontinence: She has limited control of when her armored mode activates and deactivates, causing Nagate to accidentally get a good eyeful of her naked body as a result.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: When outside of her armored mode she looks ''exactly'' like a tall teenaged girl.
* RobotGirl: She is a female android created by a pacifist out of the belief the Gauna wouldn't attack a machine.
* {{Tsundere}}: She falls for Nagate after he saves her, but is a strong Type-A tsundere about it. She breaks down sobbing and hugs him after he adopts her.
* SoleSurvivor: She is the only surviving member of the Lem expedition.
* SuperMode: Her outer covering can harden itself into an exoskeleton, which she considers an alternative to wearing clothing.
* UnPerson: When she was ditched by the pacifist movement she attempted to strike it out on her own, but was immediately stonewalled due to not being registered as a citizen or crew member.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has blue hair, which isn't all that unusual considering she's a robot.

This turns out to be a rather brief relationship, as in their next mission Hoshijiro is killed saving Nagate and assimilated by a Gauna, her memories and DNA used for creating a trio of powerful Guardian-type Gauna. Gauna 489 and 491 are killed in their first sortie, but Gauna 490 - implied to be the same Gauna that assimilated Shizuka - escapes and becomes a reoccurring antagonist, codenamed "Benisuzume" (Hawk Moth). A placenta sample of Gauna 491 is retrieved by Nagate, and is eventually used by Ochiai to give birth to Tsumugi and later Kanata. However, a second placenta sample was retrieved from Gauna 490, and has not been altered in any way.

Following Shizuka Hoshijiro's assimilation by the Gauna, three Garde-shaped Gauna, dubbed GA-489 through 491, were encountered. While 489 and 491 were dispatched with relative ease, Gauna-490 displayed a sadistic intelligence and escaped to become a reoccurring antagonist, earning the moniker "Benisuzume". GA-491's "placenta pilot" was captured by Nagate, developing a childlike personality and retaining fragments of Shizuka's memories, but was taken and impregnated by Ochiai, giving birth to Tsumugi Shiraui and Kanata. Gauna-490 became a reoccurring antagonist before being destroyed by Tsumugi and Nagate, though her placenta pilot was also secured before the destruction of her true body.
