Bernard Monsha (ベルナルド・モンシア)is a fictional character from Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.

Personality

There are four words which accurately describe Bernard Monsha's personality. Arrogant, jerk, womanizer, and something of a drunk. The man takes great interest in attempting to woo, and peep on, any woman that meets his standards. When not on duty he is often seen with a bottle of liqueur. And he openly ridicules other Earth Federation personnel unless they were soldiers who fought in the One Year War.

As an Ace of the One Year War Monsha has supreme confidence in his piloting skills, such that upon arriving at Torrington Base, Australia he proclaimed that he would be the pilot for the RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes". His arrogance does lead him to trouble as he couldn't believe that Zeon remnant soldiers could lead him into a trap, which is exactly what they did.

Lt Monsha likely sees Ensign Kou Uraki as something of a rival as Kou was chosen to pilot the advanced RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes" and is the man that started a relationship with Nina Purpleton, a woman that Monsha desired to date. Because of this Ensign Uraki is one of the two people that Monsha taunts the most often. The other is Mora Boscht, whom Monsha just doesn't like.

Background

Bernard Monsha is a veteran of the One Year War alongside his squadron mates Alpha A. Bate, Chap Adel, and their CO South Burning. After the war Monsha and his squadmates stuck together while Burning was transferred to the Torrington Base in Australia to test mobile suit technologies.

After the theft of the RX-78GP02A Gundam "Physalis", Lt Monsha and his squadmates were transferred from their previous posting to the Albion (MSC-07), brought there, along with three RGM-79N GM Custom mobile suits and two RGC-83 GM Cannon II mobile suits, by a pair of C-88 Medea transport planes. After meeting with his old teammate South, Bernard made it clear that it would be him that would pilot the RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes", something that neither Nina Purpleton nor Kou Uraki would take lightly, the former because she realized that Kou was already worthy of piloting the suit and the latter because the man insulted him. The two would take up a paintball match with the stipulation that the first one to get hit loses and the winner would get Unit One. Though Bernard was the superior pilot, Kou's ability to think on his feet and improvise won out and he was able to beat the brash older pilot. However, their stunt got them tossed in the brig for a few days.

When hunting down the Zeon base said to be where Anavel Gato and the RX-78GP02A Gundam "Physalis" was hidden, Bernard took Kou and Chuck Keith on an accidental wild goose chase, allowing Gato to escape with the Unit Two. When Kou wrecked the Unit One in battle with the Cima Fleet, a drunken Bernard let Kou have it, the conflicted young man running off in the process. However, it seemed that his attitude towards Kou greatly softened, especially after South Burning was killed. When the crew of the Albion decided to steal the RX-78GP03 Gundam "Dendrobium Orchis" to confront the Delaz Fleet, he helped hold off the soldiers from making any other moves.

Bernard's story ends on a sad note, though - to evade charges for stealing the Unit Three, Bernard and most of the Albion crew are forced to become part of the Titans task force.
