Lydo Wolf (リド・ウォルフ), widely known as the Dancing Black Death, was an Earth Federation mobile suit (MS) pilot during the One Year War. Lydo was a highly-skilled ace pilot credited with 68 enemy MS shot down and 4 ships destroyed. He appears in the original Mobile Suit Variations series and the Gundam Legacy manga series.
Originally a fighter pilot, Lydo singlehandedly shot down 21 enemy MS in one week while serving in the African front. His aircraft were usually painted in his personal colors, black, and was feared by Zeon forces as the "Dancing Black Death". With the introduction of new MS into the Earth Federation Army, Lydo was transferred to the MS corps. His personal colors were also carried over to his newly acquired GM Sniper II. Lydo was shot down and killed during the battle of A Baoa Qu. He was the third highest ranking Federation ace of the One Year War, behind Amuro Ray and Tenneth A. Jung.
