Krung Thep is a space colony that created the first two generations of Gundams for Celestial Being in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. It is the setting of the side-story Mobile Suit Gundam 00P, which occurs 15 years prior the series proper within the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 continuity. There is a second season, which is dated 10 years later, and 5 years before Gundam 00 timeline.
The colony designation is a common shorthand of the full name of Bangkok in Thai, meaning "city of gods."
Description & Characteristics
Krung Thep is an isolated space colony at Lagrange Point 3, operated by Celestial Being as a mobile suit development lab and factory. At a height and radius of 500 meters, it is one of the few operational colonies currently known to exist within Mobile Suit Gundam 00. While not an official designation, CB has deferred their development group as the Krung Thep group/team. This "classification" also includes the second generation Gundam Meisters. All of their progress in MS development and applications are presented in their files called the Krung Thep Reports.
One of the four Gundam Meisters employed by Celestial Being in the period in which 00P is set. Designated pilot of the GNY-001 Gundam Astraea at Krung Thep. A skilled mechanic, and a senior member to Chall Acustica as of her inception as Meister. He later married Marlene Vlady and was the father of Feldt Grace. He and Marlene were killed in an accident involving Gundam Plutone, an incident which also caused Chall to be permanently scarred.
One of the four Gundam Meisters employed by Celestial Being in the period in which 00P is set. A criminal forced by Celestial Being to serve as a Meister of a prototype Gundam unit at Krung Thep. As she does not support the organization's ideology, a remotely-detonable explosive has been strapped around her neck to keep her under control. Extremely skilled at piloting. Partner to Chall Acustica as of her inception as Meister. She is the mother of Feldt Grace.
At age 16, Chall was a member of Celestial Being and the designated Meister of a prototype Gundam unit. Selected for recruitment by Veda on the basis of her academic performance and her ranking in Power Loader competitions. Ruido Resonance believes that other qualities may have influenced Veda's arbitration. In Mobile Suit Gundam 00F, she is the commanding officer of Fereshte, having ceased active service as a Meister after an incident that scarred her face and prematurely whitened her hair. Following the completion of the Gundams, she obtained permission from Veda to set up the branch of Celestial Being known as Fereshte. She is stated to have some past relationship with the GNY-004 Gundam Plutone.
Designated pilot of the GNY-002 Gundam Sadalsuud. Though Meisters are typically referred to by codename, 874 is designated only by number. For unspecified reasons, she does not appear before the other members of the organization. Physically, she looks younger than 10, but her eyes seem far older.
Doctor and a longtime friend of Ian Vashti from the time before they joined the Celestial Being. He was Celestial Beings medical doctor. He treated Chall when she lost her eye and was exposed to a lot of GN particles.
Fed up with war, Ian and Joyce Moreno accepted an invitation to Celestial Being. Since his inception to Celestial Being, he's devoted all his experience and technical expertise into GN-Tech development.
New protagonist in the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00P. A third generation meister and agent for Celestial Being. Meister of GN-XXX Gundam Rasiel. Despite his designation as a meister, Grave spends more time acting as an agent to acquire information on military operations in preparation for Celestial Being's debut and protecting the organization by manipulating intelligence to ensure Celestial Being remains a secret when it begins its armed interventions.
New protagonist in new chapter of Mobile Suit Gundam 00P. Pilot of GN Sefer. His jovial personality allows him to talk freely with almost anyone, even when meeting them for the first time. Hixar enjoys making others laugh, though has considerable trouble doing so with the serious Grave and dark-mannered Chall. Several years later, he appears in 00F as a Gundam Meister on orders from Veda to follow Fon Spaak, who has been working independently from Fereshte. While Hixar appears to be the same man from 00P, his personality is remarkedly different and he is shown to have a remotely-detonatable explosive strapped around his neck.
Gundam Meister 887 or Hayana. She is the total opposite of Gundam Meister 874 or Hanayo. Hayana mostly cares for her needs instead of Celestial Beings or anybody else. Hayana was only created for Hanayo in times of need to borrow her body to pilot mobile suits.
