Ruido Resonance (ルイード・レゾナンス Ruīdo Rezonansu?) is a Gundam Meister and one of the main protagonists in Mobile Suit Gundam 00P. Ruido is a Second Generation Gundam Meister belonging to Celestial Being's Krung Thep and pilots the GNY-001 Gundam Astraea.
Personality & Character
During his time at Krung Thep, he developed a romantic relationship with Marlene Vlady that led to the birth of their daughter, Feldt Grace. It seems that he viewed his fellow meisters more than comrades but as part of a family.
Skills & Capabilities
Ruido Resonance is an engineer-type whose strength is in mechanics. He was also the only mechanic among the second generation meisters, and he was involved in the production of the third generation Gundams. It has been noted that Ruido was an excellent pilot who can utilize the Gundam Astraea in a very effective way.
Ruido was a mechanic and a mentor to Chall Acustica during her inception as Meister. Later on, an HRL battleship has gotten close to CB’s Colony Krung Thep, Gundam Meister 874 is gathering intelligence using the GNY-002 Gundam Sadalsuud, Ruido launches in GNY-001 Gundam Astraea to intercept the ship. The instruction that came from Veda was “Defeat”. Here, Ruido in the Gundam starts attacking the person. As Ruido, who has returned to Krung Thep, hung his head downcast inside his own room, Chall worries about Ruido and could not concentrate on anything. Because the development phase of Gundams in space has been completed, Veda gave instructions to switch development on earth. The second generation Gundam Meister arrived in a transport aircraft on a battlefield.
Battle on Earth
Four HRL MS “Phantom” units are engaged in combat against Gundam Meister 874 and Gundam Astraea, the fight is completely a one-sided battle that ends in 36 seconds. Ruido then battles first Hellion Platoon that was examining the AEU’s Orbital Elevator. He shoots down the first Hellion Platoon. In addition, 874 sorties in Sadalsuud, sees the shadow of an approaching aircraft, she proposes that Ruido does a check to determine the risk. Ruido boarded a small AEU ship. Ian Vashti and Joyce B. Moreno are both asked, “Will you join Celestial Being?” Moreno goes, “What is this about?” Both Ian and Moreno accepted his request.
The mission of the Gundam Abulhool starts. Chall who sees Moreno and Marlene’s exchange explains to Ruido that Marlene is “poorly skilled with Gundam”. AEU’s Hellion Platoon heads toward a guerilla village for battle. Recognizing this, Marlene in the Abulhool moves on to save the village. The Hellion attacks the Abulhool, and Marlene’s whole body is badly injured. Ruido, who sees Moreno treating Marlene, realizes the significance of the necklace. He sorties in the Astraea in place of the injured Marlene who is still recovering from her previous launch. Ruido does not want Marlene to go out into the battlefield. He believes if he fights very well, then there’s no need for her to go out into the battlefield. Ruido exterminates the Hellion force through Astraea. Marlene waited for Ruido who returned from the mission. She thanks Ruido. He confesses his love to her. Marlene also shows her feelings to Ruido. Chall cries in a corner of the maintenance facility as she finds out that two people’s exchange. Ian, who carelessly greeted her, just watched over her.
Marriage to Marlene
It is two weeks since the second generation Gundams development is officially finished. CB goes into the plan of the third generation Gundams. Ian, who is a mechanic, became busy, but Ruido and gang who are Gundam Meisters do not know what to do in their everyday free time. It was at this time that Ruido and Marlene were married at the foothills of a Japanese mountain with a young Chall as their witness. A ring is not sent, but Ruido removes her necklace. Ruido took the permission from Veda for Marlene to step out of being a Gundam Meister. And from here, Chall marries Ruido to Marlene. In 2293 Marlene gave birth to her daughter, Feldt Grace. This false name “Feldt" (Feldt has a real name) was Ruido and Marlene’s idea, and Chall was also consulted. Marlene is also registered as a spare meister, but now her daily work is on watching over Feldt’s growth. Because Ruido was the only mechanic among the second generation meisters, he was also involved in the production of the third generation Gundams. When there is time, he spends it with Feldt, and Ruido informs the very young Feldt “This Gundam is dreadfully amazing…” However, the day after a day of peace did not last long.
A terrorist plot was about to happen directed towards the HRL Orbital Elevator. Veda decided not to intervene, but Chall and gang who did not understand CB’s existence worked up with an intervention plan. The mission’s vital point was Gundam Plutone. During the mission with Chall/Plutone, Ruidio/Astraea, Marlene/Abulhool, and Meister 874/Sadalsuud, Plutone's GN Drive malfunctioned and caused an enormous GN particle build-up. The core fighter’s escape system did not function. In order to save Chall, Ruido’s Astraea and Marlene’s Albulhool approached. Gundam Meister 874 activated the core system for Chall to escaped while Ruido and Marlene block the GN particles from spreading. “You must live” – These were the last words she heard. The highly concentrated GN particles eventually overwhelmed their bodies and killed both Marlene and Ruido in the process; their daughter Feldt survived, but never knew the nature of her parent's deaths.
