CHARACTERS

JONA BASTA

Age 25. An ensign in the Earth Federation Space Force. Jona pilots a Dijeh in an operation related to Martha Vist Carbine, and then becomes the pilot of the Narrative Gundam when it is deployed as a reinforcement for Operation Phoenix Hunt. This operation is being carried out by the Shezarr Team, which was formed to search for the Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex. The Phenex has been missing since U.C. 0095, after an incident in which it ran wild. Jona was a childhood friend of Michele Luio, who is now a special adviser to Luio & Co., and of Rita Bernal, who went missing while piloting the Phenex. As children, they survived a disaster in Australia caused by a colony drop.

Michele is the daughter of the company's chairman, Luio Woomin. She is adept at fortune-telling with divination sticks, and is highly regarded in political and business circles. Along with the Narrative Gundam, Michele boards the Clop-class space cruiser Damascus, which has been deployed as part of Operation Phoenix Hunt. She claims that she has received a variety of equipment for the Narrative Gundam, carried aboard the Luio & Co. space transport ship Rosebud, from Anaheim Electronics.

RITA BERNAL

An ensign in the Earth Federation Space Force. She is the pilot of the Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex, which went missing after an incident in which it ran wild during mobility testing. As a little girl, she was one of the so-called "Miracle Children" who survived a disaster in Australia.
