This is a list of fictional characters from the Japanese novel series Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn by Harutoshi Fukui and set during the Universal Century timeline.

Main characters[edit]

Banagher Links[edit]

Banagher Links (バナージ・リンクス Banāji Rinkusu?) is the main protagonist and a student at Anaheim Industry Technical School in the colony Industrial 7. He is described as seeing war as something akin to fiction, as he was born after the One Year War ended and did not experience the subsequent conflicts. He is a part-time Petite MS pilot clearing space debris. However, upon meeting Audrey, he is drawn into a new conflict, especially when Vist Foundation leader Cardeas Vist (his father) entrusts him with the Unicorn Gundam before he dies in the first episode. Banagher Links is voiced by Kōki Uchiyama in Japanese and Steve Staley in English.

Audrey Burne[edit]

Audrey Burne (オードリー・バーン Ōdorī Bān?) is a teenager from a noble family who came to Industrial 7 to convince the Vist Foundation not to turn over Laplace's Box to the Sleeves. Riddhe Marcenas mistakes her for a popular actress on Earth, but it is later discovered that she is Mineva Lao Zabi. Her pseudonym appears to be derived from famed actress Audrey Hepburn. Audrey is voiced by Ayumi Fujimura in Japanese and Stephanie Sheh in English.

Full Frontal[edit]

Full Frontal (フル・フロンタル Furu Furontaru?) is the main antagonist and the mysterious leader of the Neo Zeon remnant forces who is described as the "second coming of Char". Like Char Aznable, he is a blond-haired man whose face is hidden behind a mask, wears a red uniform, and pilots a red mobile suit, the MSN-06S Sinanju. Late in the series, he pilots the leg-less NZ-999 Neo Zeong, which is a reference to the MSN-02 Zeong, which Char piloted during the final battle in the original series. Similar to Char, he holds the Neo Zeon remnants together with his high charisma. Whether the name is an alias is unspecified. He plays around Banagher and the others with his puzzling speech and behavior. He is fighting against the Earth Federation for "the secret" of the foundation of the Universal Century.

His face and tone closely resemble Char's. Nahel Argama captain Otto Midas remarked that his voice is just like Char's in archival footage. When Frontal removes his mask, Banagher instantly recognizes him to look exactly like Char, prompting him to ask whether or not Frontal really is Char. He is later revealed to be a cyber Newtype who was genetically altered to resemble the missing-in-action Zeon heir. His memories and emotional patterns were then implanted from the psycho frame of one of the Mobile suits previously piloted by Char (Sazabi), although a recent Newtype interview with Kosugi Naohiro indicates that this may not be the origin for Full Frontal as depicted in the OVA.[citation needed] Full Frontal is voiced by Shuichi Ikeda in Japanese and Keith Silverstein in English.

Others[edit]

Civilian[edit]

Martha Vist Carbine[edit]

Martha Vist Carbine (マーサ・ビスト・カーバイン Māsa Bisuto Kābain?) is Cardeas' younger sister. She married into the Carbine family, which founded Anaheim Electronics.
