Char is the Principality of Zeon’s ace of aces, by far the most talented mobile suit pilot to fight for the rebellious orbital colonies. Beginning his career at the Battle of Loum, where he destroyed five Federation battleships in the One Year War’s first major engagement, he has become a universally feared combatant, called the “Red Comet” for his blinding speed and customized red Zaku mobile suit.
Despite his fame, Char’s past is shrouded in mystery. He doesn’t talk about his life prior to attending the Zeon military academies, where he became a close friend of Zeon Earth Attack Force commander Garma Zabi. His face is always hidden behind his distinctive mask and helmet, an affectation for which he refuses to offer any especially serious explanation.
In the young Federation pilot Amuro Ray and his RX-78 Gundam mobile suit, Char finally discovers an enemy worthy of his talents. The rivalry between the two of them eventually expands outside the battlefield – a chance meeting between Amuro and Char’s comrade Lalah Sune creates a dangerous triangle between the three pilots. Each of them seems to possess a mental connection that goes beyond the ordinary, which suggests that there’s great danger in finally breaking that connection. (information taken from stars.IGN.com)
