Goud Veia is a ZAFT pilot with who appeared in Gundam Seed Astray series.
Goud Veia is originally a soldier of the ZAFT forces, but later left the military because he hates the war. During and after the initial Eleven Months of the first Blood Valantine War, Goud develops a split personality problem, one personality is kind, helpful, the other is revengeful and wants to kill anyone around him, including Elijah Kiel. Bad noises would cause his fierce personality to come out, while soothing music such as the songs of Lacus Clyne will calm him down and the gentle side resurfaces.
Skills & Abilities
He is a ZAFT ace and wears the red ace uniform; with his outstanding skills he brought ZAFT many victories turning the tide to OMNI ENFORCERS Mass Forces.
Goud Veia pilots a customized red colored GINN with exceptional combat ability. He is known as "The Hero Of ZAFT" because once when all friendly forces were annihilated, he managed to defeat the enemy fleet single-handedly. In the next year, he did not lose once and opposing enemies are always worried about their fleets being annihilated by him. He later left the military because he hated the war and arrived at the Literia space colony. It is at the colony that he meet and befriends Elijah Kiel, a mercenary employed by ZAFT to kill him. He is the one who told Elijah that not having the superior physiology of Coordinator despite being one is not a bad thing. His words left a lasting impression on Elijah and cements their friendship. When the EA fleet attacks the Literia space colony, Goud launches out and his fierce personality starts to surface, and he fights Elijah to a draw. Goud then begs Elijah to kill him and to end his suffering, but the latter could not bear to do so. He is later killed by Gai Murakumo who is accompanying the EA forces to the Literia space colony. Later, it is revealed that Goud Veia is actually a Socius clone who had escaped from the EA very early on and his split personality might have been a side effect of the imperfect mental conditioning employed then.
Gundam SEED VS Astray
Goud Veia returns once more as a carbon human created by Librarian Works and he was the pilot of LV-ZGMF-X23S Vent Saviour Gundam. As the Serpent Tail (except Gai) is on Earth, the Librarian Works send out Goud Veia piloting the unit and appears before the members of the mercenary group. Goud Veia announces to Elijah his arrival, badly shocking him. The meeting is interpreted by the arrival of Orb's Murasame and he left, promising that he will be back. A few days later, they meet again and a battle soon started as Elijah refuses to join him. During the battle, Goud Veia is pleased to find out that Elijah's skill have improved. He then tricks Elijah into opening the cockpit door of his customised ZAKU and hijacks it so that he could escape from Librarian Works. He left Elijah with the Vent Saviour so that he could better deal with Librarian Works. His current whereabouts are unknown.
A Zeon ace pilot, Anavel Gato who appears in Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memories also single-handedly hold on Federation pursue forces while Zeon forces retreat, same as Goud Veia single-handedly defeating enemy forces.
