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, he was the first Meister met by Chall Acustica when she arrived at Krung Thep. 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 enlisted by Celestial Being, Marlene is the designated Meister of the GNY-003 Gundam Abulhool. As there are doubts regarding her support of the organization's ideology, a remotely-detonable explosive is strapped around her neck to keep her under control. She later falls in love with, and marries fellow Meister Ruido Resonance. She is the mother of Feldt Grace.
Chall was a new member of Celestial Being and the designated Meister of the GNY-004 Gundam Plutone. While in school, she achieved stellar results in work loader competitions. Ruido guessed this may have been one of the many reasons why Veda recruited her. She ceased active service as a Meister after the Plutone incident that scarred her face and prematurely whitened her hair. In the second part of Gundam 00P, she obtained permission from Veda to set up a support organization known Fereshte. In Mobile Suit Gundam 00F, she is the commanding officer of Fereshte.
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 real age is unknown. Her voice is similar to that of a young girl, but she speaks more maturely than Ruido and in an emotionless manner.
Doctor and a longtime friend of Ian Vashti from the time before they joined the Celestial Being. He was Celestial Being's medical doctor and treated Chall back to health after the Plutone incident.
