List of Turn A Gundam characters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Loran Cehack)

This is a list of characters from Japanese mecha anime Turn A Gundam, the only series to depict the Correct Century (CC) timeline of the Gundam metaseries.


Loran Cehack
Voiced by: Romi Park (anime), Annika Odegard (video games)
Moonrace; Loran Cehack is the main character of the series and the pilot of the eponymous mobile suit, System-∀99, known as Turn A Gundam. Loran and his friends Keith and Fran are secretly sent to Earth by Dianna Soreil in advance of her main colonial force, and to ensure that Moonrace settlers can still survive there. The three of them separate upon landing and integrate themselves into the Terran population.[1]
Loran is saved from drowning by Sochie and Kihel Heim soon after parting with Keith and Fran. The wealthy Heim family takes him on as a limousine driver and quickly discovers his skills as a mechanic. Loran loves his new life on Earth and chooses to take part in a coming-of-age ceremony to become a true member of his community. His effeminate looks earn him the nickname "Laura", which he eventually uses as an alias.
Loran discovers the Turn A Gundam during the first attack by the Moonrace's Dianna Counter. He uses it to support the Earth Militia and tries to foster negotiations between the Earth and the Moon. However, he would much rather have the Turn a Gundam perform domestic chores than fight battles. Loran is torn between his desire to protect his Earthrace friends from the Moonrace military, and his belief that the Moonrace should be allowed to settle on Earth. Even so, he is unwaveringly faithful to Queen Dianna Soreil and her dream of peaceful colonization.
Loran and Turn A Gundam are playable characters in the video games Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 1, 2, and 3, with a Laura Rola costume on Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, and Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, where they are tied into the storyline.

Inglessa Militia[edit]

Guin Sard Rhineford
Voiced by: Gō Aoba
Terran; Guin Sard Rhineford is a charming young nobleman who rules the principality of Inglessa. He seems dedicated to brokering a peaceful agreement between the Terrans and the Moonrace, and to building up the Earth Militia in case those talks fall through. After his base of power, the Nocis City is destroyed. He masterminds the Terrans' journey into space to confront the Moonrace. He uses his relationship with the Luziannan princess Lily Borjarno to retain his influence after the fall of Inglessa.
Guin is motivated by personal ambition rather than the welfare of his people. He makes a Faustian pact with Gym Ghingnham to try and secure Moonrace technology for his own gain. His treacherous lust for power ultimately led to his downfall. Gym's defeat forces him into exile, and Lily Borjarno takes the place he wanted, forming diplomatic relations with the Moonrace and ushering in a new industrial age.
Michael Gern
Voiced by: Tetsuo Kanao
Terran; a colonel in the Inglessa Militia. Michael Gern is a proud and straightlaced man who follows orders until they are completed. He has a wife and a young son.
Yanny Oviess
Voiced by: Takuya Kirimoto
Terran; a sergeant in the Inglessa Militia, later promoted to second lieutenant. He has a stubborn personality and works against Dianna with Michael Gern.
Ladderrum Kune
Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki
Terran; Miashei's father, Ladderrum is skilled fighter pilot and aircraft developer. He performs mechanical maintenance for the Militia.
Miashei Kune
Voiced by: Noriko Kitō
Terran; Ladderrum's daughter, and one of the Inglessa Militia's top pilots. Miashei is Sochie's best friend and the one who taught her how to operate machines. She is a bright, sensible girl, and is often called upon to act as a voice of reason when Sochie is being too hot-headed.
Miashei and Sochie fight as a team using a pair of salvaged AMX-Kapool mobile suits.
Joseph Yaht
Voiced by: Setsuji Satō
Terran; leader of the Inglessa Militia's Jalopy Squad. Joseph comes from an ethnic minority that is persecuted in Adeska. He left his homeland to assist Sid Munzer and only departs the excavation team once he is needed to pilot the Militia's FLAT-LO6D FLAT. Joseph is a brave man with a good heart. He quickly forms a romantic relationship with Fran Doll in spite of his brusque, taciturn personality.

Luzianna Militia[edit]

Lily Borjarno
Voiced by: Ai Kobayashi
Terran; the youngest child of Lord Borjarno, who rules over the Luzianna territory. Lily initially appears to be a little more than a spoiled dilettante. She behaves pettily towards the disguised Diana Soreil, and she claims to work for the Militia out of boredom. It seems like she's willing to allow Guin to use her as a pawn so long as he indulges her infatuation.
As the series progresses, it becomes clear that Lily is in fact an insightful and astute politician. She knows the importance of gathering powerful friends and allies, and has no qualms about ditching Guin once he becomes a liability instead of an asset. Lily negotiates with Agrippa Maintainer on the Earth's behalf and takes control of the Willgame after Guin's fall from grace.
Lord Borjarno
Terran; the lord of Luzianna. He has thirteen children, including Lily Borjarno.
Voiced by: Hiroya Ishimaru
Terran; a lieutenant-colonel in the Luzianna Militia. An old-fashioned man with aristocratic tastes, he dresses in a manner he believes suits his power and status.
Gavane Gooney
Voiced by: Yoshitada Ōtsuka
Terran; Captain of the Luzianna Militia's Suicide Squad. The Suicide Squad is a group of skilled soldiers who pilot Luzianna's prized MS-06 Bojarnon (these are in fact salvaged MS-05 Zaku I and MS-06 Zaku II units). Gavane is well liked by his men and very proud of his squadron. He develops feelings for Sochie Heim, and tries to protect her even though he respects her skills as a warrior. The pair become engaged in spite of Sochie's lingering feelings for Loran, but Gavane is killed before they can be married.
Voiced by: Hiroshi Matsumoto
Terran; a member of the Suicide Squad.
Terran; a member of the Suicide Squad.

Heim Family[edit]

Kihel Heim
Voiced by: Rieko Takahashi
Terran; oldest daughter of the Heim family. Though Kihel is a wealthy heiress, she chooses to look for work and gain real-world experience rather than attend university. She sticks close to Guin Rhineford during Dianna Counter's first attack, and uses the opportunity to become his assistant. Her new position brings her to the attention of the leaders of the Moonrace.
Kihel bears a striking resemblance to Dianna Soreil, which allows her to become the Queen's double. She takes Dianna's place at the Queen's behest and, due to events beyond their control, ends up having to impersonate Dianna and lead the Dianna Counter on a long-term basis. The two go on to switch names and roles several times. Kihel and Dianna share many qualities beyond appearance. Their ideals are so aligned that for a time they consider themselves a single person. Even so, Kihel has much more energy than Dianna, and does not share Dianna's longing for an ordinary life. She is very good at hiding her insecurity, which is whether or not she can live up to Dianna's example.
Kihel is aware that Harry Ord is using her to draw threats away from the true Dianna. This does not stop her from falling in love with him. She permanently switches places with Dianna at the end of the series, and rules over the Moonrace with Harry at her side.
Sochie Heim
Voiced by: Akino Murata
Terran; second daughter of the Heim family. Sochie is a spoiled, headstrong tomboy who is continually overshadowed by her sister Kihel. She was determined to join the Inglessa Militia even before Dianna Counter's attack, and is among the first to pilot one of Sid Munzer's excavated mobile suits. Eventually, Sochie becomes a well-respected soldier, though her AMX-109 Kapool is one of the weakest mobile suits in the series.
The death of Sochie's father causes her to hate the Moonrace. She feels betrayed when she discovers that her crush Loran is from the Moon. It takes a long time for her to grow up and soften her views. While Sochie suffers a great deal of loss over the course of the series, her trials make her a stronger person, and she never loses her fighting spirit. She develops a romantic interest for Loran. Loran's exact feelings are never clarified, but they kiss at the end of the show. Even if he is fond of Sochie, Loran takes on a mission to accompany Dianna, leaving Sochie behind, who becomes frustrated and sad. It is revealed that Loran took on this mission out of loyalty for Dianna.
Dylan Heim
Voiced by: Katsumi Chou
Terran; the head of the Heim family and the father of Kihel and Sochie. Dylan is the president of the Heim family's mining company. He is killed during the Dianna Counter's first show of force on Earth.
Mistress Heim
Terran; Dylan's wife and Kihel and Sochie's mother. She is driven mad by her husband's death.
Voiced by: Hidenari Ugaki
Terran; a servant of the Heim family.
Voiced by: Chikako Akimoto
Terran; an elderly retainer of the Heim family. Jessica is tasked with caring for Kihel and Sochie's mother in their absence.

Adeska Nation[edit]

Terran; the former king of Adeska. It is Quoatl's duty to allow the new king to ritualistically kill him, but he evades death because his successor lacks the will to strike him down.
Terran; the new king of Adeska. Taruka is unable to formally take the throne because Quoatl has gone into hiding. The fight against Dianna Counter gives him the courage to fulfill his obligations and grant Quoatl an honorable death.
Terran; Quoatl's only remaining retainer. Like Joseph Yaht, Mayalito comes from an ethnic minority that is persecuted in Adeska. Unlike Joseph Yaht, she refuses to leave her ancestral home for a better life. Her loyalty to Quaotl is so absolute that she chooses to die by his side.

Other Civilians[edit]

Sid Munzer
Voiced by: Akio Nojima
Terran; an elderly archeologist searching for remnants of the Earth's "dark history". He works on the excavation of mobile suits which are used by the Earth Militias to fight the Moonrace.
Niven Horace
Voiced by: Hirohiko Kakegawa
Moonrace; an engineer from the Moon who defects to the Earth Militias when it becomes clear that Dianna Counter can't provide for all of the civilian settlers. Without him the Terrans would not be able to use a great deal of their recovered technology.
Will Game
Voiced by: Kenichi Sakaguchi
Terran; a young man who is descended from Dianna Soreil's lost love, the original Will Game. He is obsessed with going to the Moon to prove that his ancestor really did romance the legendary Queen. This leaves him vulnerable to manipulation by Teteth Halleh.
Will located and began the excavation of the Terrans' sole spaceship. After his death it is named the "Willgame" in his honor.
Verlaine Bond
Terran; the daughter of a baker. Keith Laijie finds work as a servant to the Bond family after landing on Earth, and the two become romantically involved.
Anise Bell
Terran; Verlaine's grandmother. Anise is a stubborn old woman. She refuses to evacuate from her farm because of her worry over what mobile suit battles will do to the land.


Dianna Soreil
Voiced by: Rieko Takahashi
Moonrace; the Queen of the Moon, Dianna Soreil is the hereditary ruler of the Moonrace. Now that the Earth has regenerated from the destruction wrought by the Dark History, she believes that it is time for her subjects to return to Earth. Dianna lands a colonial force on the Earth in the hopes that they will be allowed to live in America's sparsely-populated sunbelt area. Unfortunately, she fails to take Terran resistance to the migration into account, and does not anticipate that her more ambitious subjects might turn against her in her absence. Events quickly spiral out of her control.
Dianna has lived for centuries using the Moonrace's cryogenic techniques. Her desire to live on Earth is a product of her weariness with her unchanging life on the Moon. She is an intelligent and commanding leader, but she lacks the drive of her young double, Kihel Heim. Dianna is overjoyed when assuming Kihel's identity allows her to lead a simple life. She only returns to the Moon in order to correct the rash mistakes she made in her rush towards repatriation.
At the end of the series Dianna permanently switches places with Kihel. Dianna is shown wearing a ring. This often causes viewers to debate whether or not she is married to Loran.
Diana is a supporting character for Loran and a necessary ally for Gym in the game Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2.
Harry Ord
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada
Moonrace; Harry Ord is the head of Dianna's Royal Guard, and reports directly to the Queen herself. He pilots a distinctive gold-plated MRC-F20 SUMO and is one of the most skilled fighters in the series. An accomplished military strategist, Harry judges situations with a cool and rational demeanor. He is the only person who is readily able to distinguish between Kihel Heim and Dianna Soreil.
Harry remains loyal to Dianna throughout the series. Though he falls in love with Kihel, his duty to the throne always comes first. His true feelings are often hidden behind a pair of red sunglasses.

Dianna Counter[edit]

Phil Ackman
Voiced by: Tsuyoshi Koyama
Moonrace; a captain of the Dianna Counter forces, later promoted to major. He is a repatriation convoy commander and a military hardliner. When Kihel (in the guise of Dianna) refuses to conquer the sunbelt territory by force, Ackman rebels against her authority and takes personal control over the Dianna Counter forces. He intends to set himself up as king of a new Moonrace nation on Earth.
Ackman realizes the error of his ways after Gym Ghingnham attacks Earth, and pledges his life to Dianna in order to atone for his rebellion.
Poe Aijee
Voiced by: Yumiko Nakanishi
Moonrace; a lieutenant in the Dianna Counter forces. Phil Ackman promises to make Poe his queen if she supports him against Dianna Soreil. Poe becomes emotionally unstable because her missions are continually foiled by Loran Cehack and Harry Ord.
Miran Rex
Voiced by: Ryuji Mizuno
Moonrace; Dianna's adjutant consular officer. He quarrels with Phil Ackman regarding Dianna, but eventually comes to ally with the former. Miran Rex is responsible for selling Dianna out to the Agrippa Faction.
Corin Nander
Voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawazu
Moonrace; a military prisoner shipped to Earth by Agrippa Maintainer. Nander was an elite soldier during the Dark History. The Moonrace's cryogenic freezing techniques have allowed him to survive for thousands of years after the end of the war, at the cost of sustaining severe brain damage. He is delusional and almost childlike when not on the battlefield.
Nander is obsessed with destroying the Turn A because he remembers the suffering that Gundams were responsible for during the Dark History. His fixation leads to the destruction of Nocis City, but he later reforms after being befriended by Dianna.
Voiced by: Kazunari Tanaka
Moonrace; initially one of Nander's subordinates and a member of the Dianna Counter forces, he later joins the Earth Militia. Bruno is an MS Gozzo pilot and Jacop's partner.

She sacrifices her life to keep Dianna Soreil out of the hands of Gym Ghingnham.

Ghingnham Fleet[edit]

Gym Ghingnham
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (anime), Scott Mcneil (video games)
Moonrace; leader of the armed forces of the Moon. Gym is a forceful, swaggering man who carries a katana as an affectation. He believes that humanity can only live up to its true potential during times of war, and seeks to use the Turn X to sow strife and re-kindle the brutal conflicts that raged throughout the Dark History.
Both Agrippa Maintainer and Guin Sard Rhineford think that they can use Gym to their own ends, but they fail to understand his lust for battle. Neither politician is able to control him.
Gym is a pilot in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 as well as Turn X, making an appearance as a Playable mobile suit. Gym also pilots Musha Gundam against Loran in the final battle.
