Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: Day After Tomorrow - From Kai Shiden's Report
We see that Shinta and Qum were in fact brother and sister, and that their father was set up and subsequently killed by the Titans in order to find someone responsible for the murder of Blex Forer and to cover up their own involvement in the assassination. Coincidentally Char meets with Hayato the morning after to discuss the death of Blex near a river where Shinta and Qum just happened to be selling water and when Hayato asks "...Did something happen with those kids!?" Char coldly replies that it was nothing and goes to leave, but as he does so he hears Lalah and replies "If that's what Lalah says…".

When Char Aznable returns from a trip to the Earth Federation capital in Dakar, he brings with him a pair of orphaned children, who remain aboard the Argama as mascots and comic relief. For the most part, Both Shinta and Qum are entrusted to the care of their babysitter Fa Yuiry and their pet robot Haro, but when they're really bored they'll pester Kamille, Bright, or the kindly ships's doctor Hasan for additional entertainment.
