Matilda Ajan (マチルダ・アジャン Machiruda Ajan?) is a fictional character from the Mobile Suit Gundam anime series and the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin series.



Matilda Ajan was an officer of the Earth Federation's Medea supply corps. Her unit was often assigned to support the White Base with supplies and repairs. Matilda also served as a personal envoy for General Revil, carrying messages and orders from him. When the White Base was trapped in Zeon-controlled airspace over North America it was the vital supplies delivered by the Medea supply corps which allowed the beleaguered assault carrier to make desperately needed repairs and escape over the Pacific Ocean.

Due to her habits of showing up when the White Base was in a bind and helping them in whatever way she could, Miss Matilda was looked to as the guardian angel of the vessel. Also due to her stunning beauty she became the dream girl of many of the young male crew members staffing the White Base, especially the young Amuro Ray. Miss Matilda was engaged to Lieutenant Woody Malden, who was a chief military engineer stationed in the Earth Federation headquarters of Jaburo.

When the ship reached Asia, Matilda gave the White Base orders to head to Ukraine to take part in Operation Odessa, a large-scale military operation to wrest control of the mining facilities at Odessa away from the Principality of Zeon. However, on route to participate in the battle the White Base was attacked by the Zeon ace pilot trio, the Black Tri-Stars. In order to protect the White Base, Matilda rammed her Medea into one of the Black Tri-Stars' Doms, in an attempt to knock it down. But Dom pilot Ortega hit back, smashing the Medea's cockpit so the transporter crashed into the ground exploding and killing Matilda instantly. Matilda Ajan was later listed as killed in action on November 6, U.C.0079. Afterwards, Amuro meets Matilda's fiance Lieutenant Woody in Jaburo and apologizes for not being able to protect her. Woody forgives him since it was war and she died doing what she loved the most, protecting her friends' ship, the White Base.

Matilda appears in the novelization of Mobile Suit Gundam in the same capacity as she did in the anime. However, unlike her anime counterpart, it is assumed that Matilda survived the One Year War.
