George Glenn (ジョージ・グレン Jōji Guren?)While un-seen and only refereed to in Gundam SEED he is a character of great significance and importance even long after death, for being humanity's first Coordinator.
Pre Gundam SEED
He obtained his doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at the age of 17. Glenn had numerous achievements, he was a star athlete, an Olympic silver medalist, as well as a famous American football player. He was also an ace pilot in the Air Force, as well as having numerous achievements in the field of aerospace engineering.
Glenn would embark on the Jupiter Exploration Mission for the Atlantic Federation's FASA (Federal Aeronautics and Space Administration) on a spaceship he himself designed that would take seven years. Before he embarked on his journey, he revealed a shocking truth to the people of Earth. Glenn explained that he was not born through natural means and that his genes were modified artificially early in his life. He explains that his body surpasses that of unaltered humans in every aspect-strength, intelligence, and creativity.
Fourteen years later, Glenn brought back from his exploration Evidence 01, also called the "Winged Whale." It was an extraterrestrial fossil found orbiting Jupiter that proved the existence of alien life. This discovery would prompt the temporary weakening of the influence of religious extremists on the world.
In the end, a Natural, who was angry that he was not born a Coordinator, assassinated Glenn in C.E. 53.
