Tropes associated with the Ptolemaios and its crew:

    open/close all folders 

    Crew as a whole 
  • Cool Spaceship: Ptolemaios, a solar powered space ship that can create a GN field to protect itself.

    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.

Voiced by Yoko Honna (Japanese) and Lisa Ann Beley (English)

  • The Alcoholic: It's played rather seriously. She apparently spent most of the four years between seasons drunk.
  • 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 and strategist.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Japanese-Spanish born in America.
  • The Chessmaster: Her job is to provide "tactical forecasts" for Celestial Being..
  • Cooldown Hug: Uses this on Billy towards the end, who breaks down in tears as a result.
  • Dating Cat Woman: With Billy during season 1 — he's part of a task force assigned to stop Celestial Being (although he doesn't know that Sumeragi is a member), while she goes out with him in part to get information on the Union's actions. When Billy learns that truth, he becomes obsessed with revenge against her.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Her default method of dealing with her personal issues is getting shitfaced runk.
  • 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 upset 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 and tries to take it easy.
  • The Leader: While she's technically not the Ptolemaios's captain, she is effectively the leader of Celestial Being's Ptolemaios cell.
  • Living with the Villain: Billy was her neighbor and boyfriend of sorts. They lived together for four years during the four-year timeskip between seasons. He works for a Union taskforce assigned to stop Celestial Being, but is completely oblivious to Sumeragi's affiliation with the organizaiton until Setsuna comes to re-recruit her.
  • The Strategist: She's Celestial Being's tactical forecaster, which means that her job is to devise strategies for the Gundam Meisters' intervention and predicting their enemies' tactics.
  • 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.
  • Team Mom: Looks after the emotional wellbeing of her crew.
  • Teen Genius: Graduated from college at age 17 with flying colors.

    Feldt Grace

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 (English)

  • 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.
  • Hopeless Suitor: 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. And then she develops feelings for Setsuna, who is more or less asexual. Despite that as noted below it’s somewhat Subverted, as she basically becomes the Implied Love Interest for Setsuna. However the movie ends with their relationship on a very open ended note.
  • Implied Love Interest: To Setsuna. While his feeling for Marina are platonic and he recognizes that Feldt is flirting with him, whether he returns her interest is ambiguous.
  • 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.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She realizes that a relationship between her and Setsuna would never work out, but she remains in love with him.
  • Love Hurts: She has a crush on Lockon which breaks her heart when he dies. She later falls for Setsuna, but his destiny as an Innovator means that it would never work out between them.
  • Loving a Shadow: Develops a crush on Lyle because of his resemblence to Neil, despite the twins being very different in terms of personality. Lyle notices and dissuades her brutally by Hidden Heart of Gold.
  • 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 Marie, 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 to Marie later.
  • Military Brat: Literally grew up in Celestial Being, since her parents were Gundam Meisters.
  • Not Good with People: Most prevalent in season 1 where she preferred to interact with computers and Haros as opposed to people. Season 2 has her growing out of this.
  • Onee-sama: Acts like an older sister to Mileena, just like Christina did with her.
  • 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.
  • Say My Name: Screams Christina's name when Christina dies. Later on does this sometimes for Setsuna.
  • Ship Tease: Just watch episode 22 of season 2, she gives a flower to Setsuna. And in the 4 months for 2312 drama CD, they have a rather in depth conversation, part of it involving Neil Dylandy. In the movie this ship is pushed quite hard, but whether or not it was reciprocated was deliberately made up for interpretation by the director. Word of God has stated the director pushed for as many romantic scenes as possible between her and Setsuna. Also despite the movie being open to interpretation, he seems to personaly support the ship.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Has a crush on Lockon, although he just views her like a little sister. Five years after his death and near the end of S2, to Setsuna.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Christina Sierra

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)

  • Abusive Parents: It's implied that she ran away from home because her mother was abusive.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Bleeds from her mouth after being fatally impaled.
  • Bridge Bunny: Oversees the deployment of the Gundams and operates Ptolemy's radar system.
  • Cool Big Sis: Acts like an older sister to Feldt.
  • 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.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her shirt clings rather unrealistically, on top of being a Sexy Backless Outfit.
  • Kill the Cutie: The most cheerful member of Celestial Being and she dies a rather horrific death.
  • 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 Tsery

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: He has a crush on Christina, but she says that he's not her type.Unfortunately, Christina realized her feelings for him after he died and before she dies..

  • Bridge Bunny: Co-pilots Ptolemy.
  • 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.

    Lasse Aeon
Main mecha: GNR-001E GN Arms, GN-0000 0 Gundam

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.

Voiced by Hiroki Tochi (Japanese) and Andrew Francis (English)

Voiced by Hideyuki Umezu (Japanese) and Peter New (English)

  • 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.
  • Near-Death Experience: He and Linda are nearly assimilated, but was saved thanks to Setsuna making a successful dialogue with the ELS.
  • Open-Minded Parent: Apparently has no problem with his fourteen-year-old daughter serving as bridge crew on an active battleship.
  • Overprotective Dad: Played for laughs. He goes ballistic when he hears Mileina declare her love for Tieria, despite Tieria giving no indication that he reciprocates.

    Mileina Vashti

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.
