Kamina Ayato lives an ordinary life. He goes to school. He lives with his mother. He has schoolmates. But all of that changes one day when massive machines, known as the Dolem, attack the city of Tokyo with their destructive vocal powers. Caught up in the chaos, Ayato meets a mysterious girl named Mishima Reika. She leads him to the sanctuary, resting place of the RahXephon, a giant humanoid being with powers to counter those of the Dolem. Upon its awakening, Ayato finds himself synchronising with the machine and it takes him to the world beyond Tokyo. It seems that Tokyo, more precisely called Tokyo Jupiter, has been cut off from the rest of the world. Those living within the boundaries of Tokyo Jupiter believe that the rest of the world has been decimated, when in fact they live in a world controlled by the Mu. Now, facing the truth, Ayato must come to terms with his new reality, for he is a central element in the fate of mankind.

Ding Jiayu dreams of being a photographer. Her idol is none other than Yung Jo. When Yung Jo’s photography company holds an audition to find a new photographer, Jiayu decides to take a chance. The thing is, Yung Jo’s company doesn’t hire women, so Jiayu has no choice but to dress up as man and enter. Yung Jo takes great interest in Jiayu's talent and makes her his apprentice. It may seem like a dream to work with your idol, but for Jiayu, it's nothing of the sort. She takes a beating from Yung Jo everyday, and since all the crew members think she is a guy…

"People don't like my face." Said the overly handsome boy wearing a mask over his mouth. Of course, this wasn't it. People loved his face too much that they fainted and fought over him. It's just that he was way too dense to see it. His only friend was his childhood friend, and it just so happens that his childhood friend has a sister. She is our heroine. Her name is Mirang. Although she is tough, she has a beautiful face and a not too perfect personality. She's conceited, a bit spoiled, she says mean things, and her type of men are comedians?! She grew up apparently hating Won (the overly handsome boy). She threw rocks at him, she hit him, kicked him, and insulted him over and over again. It didn't affect him. Does this seem like a romance manga so far?Just wait for it. When her parents decide to get a divorce, she leaves for 7 years and now that she's back, she realizes her feelings towards Won. She kisses him and tells him "You're mine now". What happens when one of Won's admirers spot this? She of course reports it to the rest of the gang. Joy, oh joy. Please.. touch him! It'll build our entertainment.

From ShoujoMagic: Lele was born into the fashion industry. Both her parents were models, and they both die in a tragic airplane crash leaving Lele orphaned. Therefore, it is no surprise that Lele hates the industry, thinking it’s superficial and unnecessary! Raised by her maternal grandmother, Lele reaches seventeen years of age before she is sucked in when her mother's sister – a fashion model agent and former model, convinces the reluctant Lele to model. Lele had been adverse to the whole idea, until she sees a photo shoot of popular American model Angus Lanson, and she begins to see modeling as an art form. When Aunt Fei's magazine editor invites Angus Lanson to a meeting of all the top fashion ambassadors, a curious Lele is invited to meet him. She does not know that Angus' twin elder brother, Eros Lanson, is secretly accompanying his brother. This obviously leads to confusion and is the start of a charming story of Lele's goals: fashion in NYC, becoming a top model, and…love???

Born as Soran Ibrahim, Setsuna is the primary protagonist of the show and was discovered by Celestial Being at the age of 14 for having special potential as a pilot. He is currently a Gundam Meister for their organization, piloting the Gundam Exia, and later the 00 Gundam, both specialized in close combat. Before gaining his Gundam Meister codename, he was a child soldier in the war-torn Republic of Krugis. He murdered his own parents under Ali Al-Saachez's influence in order to prove his devotion to God,and hence bears a deep hatred towards Saachez. Due to his previous religious brainwashing (and awakening from it), Setsuna no longer believes that God exists. Setsuna believes that war can only be stopped through direct confrontation, and therefore has little tolerance for diplomats and politicians, believing that their "peace talks" only lengthen the conflict and cause more casualties. Disappearing at the end of the first season, Setsuna reappears four years later and rejoins Celestial Being. In the upcoming movie, Setsuna pilots an upgraded version of the 00 named 00 Qan[T] pronounced as "Double Oh Quanta".

a genetically engineered super soldier in seasons

Born Neil Dylandy, Lockon decided to join Celestial Being after losing his parents and little sister to terrorists in Ireland; because of this, he loathes terrorists. As the eldest pilot, he is considered the team leader of the Gundam Meisters,and sports a more easygoing, flamboyant personality as compared to the other Gundam Meisters. He owns an orange Haro to control Gundam Dynames when sniping and just like Setsuna, he has a personal feud with Ali AlSaachez, who was directly involved in the terrorist bombing that caused the death of his family. [ After being killed at the climax of the first season, his younger twin brother Lyle Dylandy chooses to become the new Lockon Stratos, primarily to help spy on Celestial Being for the dissident group Katharon. He pilots the Cherudim Gundam, which is also specialized in long range combat. Later on, he falls in love with a new member of the Ptolemy, Anew Returner. In the upcoming movie, Lockon pilots another unit, the mobile armor Gundam Zabanya, focused on both heavy artillery and sniping.

Allelujah spent his childhood as an orphan in the Human Reform League as a Super Soldier experimental subject, designated "E-57". While generally gentle and rational compared to the other Gundam Meisters, he has another harsher, unstable, and outright sadistic alter ego, named Hallelujah inside him, which was the result of the Super Soldier experiments. His main rival in combat is another subject of the Super Soldier program, the HRL pilot Soma Peries who shares a mysterious connection with him. He is the pilot of Gundam Kyrios, and later, the Arios Gundam, both of which specialize in high mobility and are able to transform into mobile armors (fighter jets). Allelujah is imprisoned during the four year timeskip between both seasons, but he ends up being rescued by his companions after the other three Meisters reunite. In the upcoming movie Allelujah and his lover Marie Parfacy pilot together Arios' sucessor unit, the Gundam Harute.

Gundam Meister of the heavily armored Gundam Virtue and its successor unit, the Seravee Gundam, Tieria treats Veda's orders with high regard, valuing the mission above all other issues; he is also able to independently access Veda directly. As a result of his arrogance and cold attitude towards others, his relationship with the other Gundam Meisters got off a rocky start, but later learns to care for the other Meisters. Of all the Gundam Meisters, Tieria is the most enigmatic, with an unknown past and a peculiar connection with the Innovators.Contrary of the other Meisters who were either K.I.A. or M.I.A. in the end of the first season, Tieria continued to work for Celestial Being during the 4 year timeskip. Tieria first appears in the second season rescuing Setsuna in his battered Exia from A-Laws' mobile suits; Tieria then brings Setsuna back to Celestial Being to resume his position. In the upcoming movie, Tieria pilots the Raphael Gundam, a new unit with features from both GN-008 Seravee Gundam and GNZ-003 Gadessa.

Sumeragi is the tactical forecaster/coordinator and commander of the Celestial Being's Ptolemy Crew in both season 1 and 2.

Feldt is one of Celestial Being's tactical operators (CIC/AIC) for CBS-70 Ptolemaios; in Season 2, she returns as tactical operator for CBS-74 Ptolemaios 2.

Lasse has been trained in piloting support crafts, mobile suits, and a skilled gunner. Being a reserve meister he has been trained to pilot mobile suits and the support machines for the Gundams. His piloting skills are excellent as he can pilot the GN Arms and the 0 Gundam with great efficiency.
