Laguna Harvey (ラグナ・ハーヴェイ Raguna Hāvei?) is a fictional character in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Laguna is the president of Linear Train Industries; his company is contracted for operations and maintenance over the orbital elevators. In secret, he's a member of Celestial Being. He's one of the few people in the world with influence and the vast resources to provide Celestial Being with resources for their operations without giving attention to the world authorities.
Not much is understood about Laguna due to limited explanations of his intentions. The story suggests he wanted greater political influence and it involves Team Trinity and giving the world GN-Technology. His actions suggests he has delusions of grandeur, poor ability of anticipation and stealth as his activities were discovered by other Celestial Being members.
Skills & Abilities
Not much is mentioned about Laguna, it's only presumed because he's the president of his own company that he has good business skills. It's unknown if he is an engineer himself, but he uses his vast resources to help cover Celestial Being's activities and reverse engineer GN-tech.
Joining Celestial Being
Laguna's affiliation with Celestial Being is an untold tale. The fact his company provides resources to Celestial Being and related to Aeolia Schenberg's orbital elevator plans suggest his family or at least himself was part of the secret organization for a very long time. He had Linear Train Industries assist Celestial Being sneaking in materials, equipment, Gundams, and operatives in between Earth, orbital elevators, and various Lagrange points.
Much of Laguna's intentions are unknown. It's speculated he wanted more than just wealth, he wanted political influence and/or power. Ribbons Almark secretly was in contact with him to start developing GN-tech based on stolen CB data.
Creating Team Trinity
The origins of the Trinity's are unknown, but they were chosen and fitted to be personal Gundam Meister's to Laguna. Using stolen GN-Tech, Laguna created GN T(au) drives that resulted in the Gundam Thrones, Trinity Mothership, and their secret base in Northern Africa. Laguna intends to cripple the world's military might, by having the Thrones forcefully pacifying nations through military base attacks and total annihilation tactics. However, pacifying the world wasn't his real intentions.
Destroying Celestial Being
Although the full scope of his intentions are unknown, it appears he's been attempting to gain favor and greater influence over the world by offering GN-Tech to the world. It's unclear why would he destroy his own group, but exterminating the Trinity's seem to be part of his plans. He unleashed the Thrones to cause chaos and then give the world GN-X's to destroy them.
Ali visited Laguna at the Linear Train Corporation HQ, Ali requested Laguna to give him a mobile unit for combat, hinting on the GN-X. Ali never accused or said Laguna was part of Celestial Being, but hinted everything to suggest to him that he knew a lot more than it appears. Laguna wanted to know his intentions and Ali explained he wanted his influence to have him part of regular military as he perceives no future being a mercenary. Ali subsequently left the building in anger, suggesting his request was denied. It was later when Alejandro Corner was hacking Veda that he discovered Laguna's activities and mentions that his actions will be put to an end revealing that he was working for Alejandro Corner all along. The following scene reveals Laguna dead on his office table, shot through the head. Later when Ali al-Saachez was about to wipe out the Trinity's, he revealed to them it was he who killed Laguna Harvey.

- Alejandro Corner
- Alejandro was the few people that caught onto Laguna and his intentions. It's unclear did he have a relationship with Ali al-Saachez, however when Alejandro discovered Laguna's activities (while hacking Veda), he mentioned he'll be stopped and coincidentally Ali killed Laguna not long.
Main article: PMC Trust
- Ali al-Saachez
- It was never explained how Ali al-Saachez came into the service of Laguna, but he hired him as his personal operative. Using his connections at AEU, he has a duel identity between Moralia/PMC Trust and French Foreign Legion. Laguna gave him a false ID, Gary Biagi, to work under AEU to carry out special missions. The depth of his connections and who is in the loop behind Laguna's activities are unknown, but Ali seems to be the only one. The full extent of his reasons of hiring Ali might not ever be explained because Laguna was subsequently killed by Ali after denying him a GNX-603T GN-X.
