Freedom Gundam (SPOILER)

Post by Mafty » Sat Feb 13, 2021 11:27 am

Is it every said anywhere who the Freedom Gundam's original pilot was? Athrun was the original pilot of the Justice, which he stole when he defected. The unit is seemingly meant to operate in tandem; so was the pilot to be someone like Dearka(before he defected) Yzak, or even Rau?

SEED is the better part of twenty years old now; thar's not really spoiler-worthy. Anyhow I don't know if anything official has been said but Rau pilots it before Kira in one G-Gen game (Advance, which came out right after the show finished) and as the rest of his elites already had their Gundams at the time ZAFT started building the thing, Rau makes sense as it's intended pilot before things happened and he ultimately wound up with the Providence.

According to the 2004 MG Freedom Gundam manual, it's unknown who (if anyone) had been selected as the Freedom Gundam's pilot prior to Lacus Clyne's decision to entrust the suit to Kira Yamato. It speculates that Yzak Jule was on the short list of pilot candidates due to the suit being a special project overseen by the PLANT Supreme Council that his mother sat on as Patrick Zaka's right-hand man.
