Claudia LaSalle (クローディア・ラサール Kurōdia Rasāru?) is a fictional character in the Macross animated science fiction universe.[1] She debuts in the first episode of the first series, The Super Dimension Fortress Macross.[2] She also appears in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? movie and in archival footage and flashbacks in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012 music video collection.[3]

Her voice actress was Noriko Ohara in the original Japanese TV version,[4][5][6][7] in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? movie adaptation,[8] and in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012 OVA.[9]

In the English dub of the original Japanese series that was released by ADV Films in January 2006 the character was voiced by Christine Auten.[5]

In the fictional continuity of Macross Claudia LaSalle is an American U.N. Spacy bridge officer in charge of weaponry and navigation of the SDF-1 Macross space fortress.[1] She and fellow bridge officer Misa Hayase are close friends, and she is often there to give her friend advice on matters of the heart (especially when it comes to Misa's confused feelings for Hikaru Ichijyo), something Hayase is awkward in. She used to be in a close relationship with Roy Focker until his death.[10]

She is known as Claudia Grant in Robotech. Claudia LaSalle does not die at the end of Macross,[11] although her Robotech counterpart does die.

It is possible Claudia is a relative of Edgar LaSalle from Macross Zero, who was Shin Kudo's RIO.
