Crossfire at Heliopolis: The GAT-X105 Strike

Kira Yamato with Birdy

During the Bloody Valentine War, Kira lives on the neutral colony of Heliopolis where he attends a college with his friends Sai Argyle, Kuzzey Buskirk, Miriallia Haw, and Tolle Koenig. Kira is also attracted to Sai's fiancee, Flay Allster. Kira owns a robotic pet bird, Birdy (Torii in the Japanese version), which was given to him three years earlier by his childhood best friend, Athrun Zala, who built it.

Kira eventually finds two prototype mobile suits, the GAT-X105 Strike and the GAT-X303 Aegis, and a battle taking place between Earth Alliance soldiers and the ZAFT special forces team in the factory. While Kira helps an Earth Alliance officer, Murrue Ramius, he recognizes one of the ZAFT soldiers as his old friend, Athrun. The two friends are stunned by each other's presence. Murrue attempts to shoot Athrun, but he captures the Aegis and escapes, while Murrue and Kira board the Strike.

Kira coins the nickname "Gundam" for the machine from an acronym in the name of the Strike's mobile suit operating system (the "GUNDAM" acronym also finds its way into subsequent mobile suit operating system names within the Cosmic Era timeline). The nickname sticks for similar high performance prototype mobile suits that use the GUNDAM operating system.

Outside the factory, Athrun informs GINN pilot Miguel Aiman, that the Strike is being piloted by an Earth Alliance soldier. Athrun takes his machine back to his ship and Miguel attempts to capture the Strike. Murrue is no match for Miguel, and seeing that his friends Sai, Kuzzey, Miriallia, and Tolle, are endangered by this battle, Kira takes control of the Strike and fights back, forcing Miguel to retreat.

After the battle, Murrue tells Kira and his friends that they have to stick with her because they have stumbled upon an Earth Alliance military secret. They are then attacked by Rau Le Creuset. Using the Strike's Launcher pack, Kira forces Rau to flee. They are soon joined by Mu La Flaga, Natarle Badgiruel, and several other Earth Alliance survivors of the raid on Heliopolis. Mu concludes that Kira is no ordinary human (he was able to rewrite the Strike's operating system in seconds and pilot it adeptly) and asks if Kira is a Coordinator. When Kira answers yes, Earth Alliance soldiers pull their guns on him, but Tolle vouches that Kira is not part of ZAFT. Murrue mentions that Orb has a policy of non-discrimination against Coordinators, so it makes perfect sense that Kira was living on Heliopolis. Mu apologizes for stirring up a fuss.

Kira initially refuses to pilot the Strike again, but Mu, who acts as somewhat of a mentor in the series, tells Kira that he is the only one capable of piloting it and that if he has the power to make a difference, he should.


During a later battle with ZAFT forces, Kira kills Miguel and the colony of Heliopolis collapses. Kira retrieves a damaged lifeboat[4] from the debris; among the survivors onboard is Flay.


On the Archangel

After becoming the pilot of the Strike, Kira often confronts his friend Athrun Zala, a ZAFT soldier. While Athrun fights to protect his nation, Kira who hates war, wants to protect his friends who are onboard the Archangel. Athrun Zala (アスラン・ザラ Asuran Zara) is a fictional character from the anime series Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny, set in the Cosmic Era timeline of the Gundam universe. ...

When Kira confronts Athrun for the first time after the destruction of Heliopolis, Athrun tries to get him to join ZAFT. He tells Kira that his mother was killed in the Bloody Valentine Incident and that was what drove him to join ZAFT. This affects Kira, but he refuses to join ZAFT, because he has people to protect on the Archangel, and escapes when Mu La Flaga intervenes.

At Artemis, Kira is claimed a traitor to Coordinators by Eurasian Federation Admiral Gerard Garcia, who was attempting to steal the Archangel and the Strike from the Atlantic Federation. However, Kira had locked the Strike's operation system on the advice of Mu, so they needed him to unlock it. Garcia even promised protection in Eurasia. After the Archangel with the Strike onboard escapes Artemis, Kira lays down on his bed and says "traitor" to himself while crying. This article is about fictional locations from the Cosmic Era timeline of the anime Gundam metaseries. ...


A twist of fate lands PLANT pop idol Lacus Clyne — who is Athrun's fiancee — onboard the Archangel. Natarle Badgiruel uses her as a shield to stave off ZAFT forces after they destroy an Earth Alliance fleet, killing Vice Foreign Minister George Allster in the process. Before withdrawing, Athrun asks Kira if it is his idea of justice to fight with cowards who would use innocent civilians as hostages, and vows to rescue Lacus.

Kira later frees Lacus and with the help of Sai and Miriallia returns her to Athrun. Again, Athrun asks Kira to join ZAFT but Kira refuses, saying that he has friends on the Archangel he must protect. Athrun tells Kira that the next time they meet in battle, he would not hesitate to kill him; Kira returns the sentiment. Lacus is saddened because she is leaving Kira, realizing that he had similar sentiments against war, yet has the strength to fight. Kira is later court martialed by the Archangel's senior staff, but all charges were dropped against Kira due to him being a civilian.


When Flay, witnesses her father's killing by ZAFT, she berates Kira for not saving her father, even though he promised to and accuses him of not fighting his best because his opponents are fellow Coordinators. This accusation traumatizes Kira emotionally. Flay later apologizes, faking affection for him to make him kill all the Coordinators on her behalf. Her misplaced sentiment makes her believe that Kira will fight harder for her. Kira's fighting becomes more violent as shown when he enters SEED mode for the first time and damages the GAT-X102 Duel, giving its pilot Yzak Joule a scar across his face. ‹ The template below (Animanga-in-universe) has been proposed for deletion. ...

Kira in tears after being unable to stop Yzak Joule from destroying the civilian shuttle

Later, when the Archangel rendezvouses with the Earth Alliance's 8th Fleet, Flay, followed by Kira's other friends volunteer to enlist. This causes Kira to decide to officially become an Earth Alliance soldier as well. Soon after, during a battle that results in the destruction of the 8th fleet, a fleeing shuttle of survivors from Heliopolis accidentally crosses in the middle of his fight with Yzak, who has sworn revenge against Kira. Yzak shoots down the shuttle, thinking it contains retreating Earth Alliance soldiers, while Kira fails to protect it. Image File history File links Kira_Yamato_Gundam_Seed_Phase_15. ... Image File history File links Kira_Yamato_Gundam_Seed_Phase_15. ...


This event haunts him for a long time. One of the passengers was a little girl named Elle, who gave him an origami flower as a token of her appreciation for his protection in earlier battles. When Flay brings him back the flower, Kira breaks down and cries. Flay comforts and kisses him and eventually the two of them have sex. They later grow apart as Kira becomes obsessed with protecting the ship, to the point that Kira began bunking in the Strike. These incidents lead Kira to use a more violent fighting style against the ZAFT forces which battle the Archangel in the North African desert and later in the Indian Ocean.


Enter the Desert Tiger: Andrew Waltfeld encounters Kira Yamato

When the Archangel lands in North Africa, they are immediately attacked by a ZAFT squadron lead by the famous Desert Tiger, Andrew Waltfeld. Due to Kira's inexperience in the desert, the Strike couldn't keep balance on the sand hills. He managed to again, reprogram the Strike's systems to adapt to the environment. This immediately informs Waltfeld that the pilot is a Coordinator. He then took out two BuCue, forcing the ZAFT forces to retreat.


Kira then is reunited with Cagalli Yula Athha, the girl he helped escape from Heliopolis. Cagalli has been worried about him and is shocked to see him piloting a mobile suit. This article or section contains a plot summary that may be overly long, confusing, or ambiguous. ...


After a squadron of ZAFT's TMF/A-802 BuCUEs under the command of Waltfeld destroy the town of Tassil, Cagalli and other members of the Desert Dawn recklessly chase after them. Several resistance fighters, including Cagalli's friend Ahmed El Fasi, are killed, though Kira arrives in time to save Cagalli. After the battle, Kira argues with Cagalli, saying it is foolish to die for nothing. She tells him everyone fought bravely. Kira asks her what she thinks they can protect when their feelings are the only weapons they have.

Later, the two of them are sent to gather supplies. As Kira and Cagalli sit down for lunch, they meet a (poorly but effectively) disguised Andrew Waltfeld. Blue Cosmos terrorists attack, targeting Andrew. In the confusion, Kira saves Andrew from being shot in the back. Andrew thanks Kira, and he sheds the disguise, Cagalli realizes who he really is. This article or section contains a plot summary that is overly long. ...


Andrew brings Kira and Cagalli to his headquarters. Though they want to leave, he wants to thank them. While Cagalli, who is covered in chili and yogurt sauce, cleans up, he and Kira talk.


Andrew's girlfriend Aisha takes Cagalli to get cleaned up and then brings her back in an elegant dress. She and Kira squabble, which the adults find amusing. When Cagalli confronts Andrew, he pulls out a gun and asks Kira if a war will end when all of your enemies are destroyed. Andrew says he does not know why Kira is fighting his own kind, but as long as Kira pilots the Strike, they are enemies. He then puts the gun away stating that his home is not a battlefield and that Kira had saved him. Because of that, he lets Kira and Cagalli leave.


Because they know each other, Kira and Andrew find it difficult to fight in the next battle, where Andrew pilots the new TMF/A-803 LaGOWE to face Kira personally. Kira asks Andrew to stop because the battle is over, but Andrew is determined to keep fighting until one of them is dead. Kira activates his SEED abilities and destroys the LaGOWE that Andrew is piloting. Kira cries after the LaGOWE explodes because he did not want to kill Andrew. This article is about a fictional weapon from the Cosmic Era timeline of the anime Gundam metaseries. ...


Flight over the Indian Ocean: The winds of change

While traveling on the Indian Ocean, Kira remembers his final battle with Andrew, the death of Flay's father, and the destroyed civilian shuttle and begins to cry. Cagalli hugs him and tells him everything will be okay, and finds herself holding his hand. She tells him not to get the wrong idea, as she simply wants him not to cry anymore.


She asks why he is with the Earth Alliance when he is a Coordinator. He recalls being asked that many times. She asks about what Coordinators can do, and Kira tells her that their abilities come from studying and training, not just by virtue of birth. Flay hears their voices, and leads Kira away, obviously jealous of Cagalli.


Later, when the Archangel is undergoing repairs at Orb, Kira ends his relationship with Flay. It is unclear whether he realized she was manipulating him or not. He also meets Athrun face to face, who is spying to see if the Archangel is in Orb. Although Athrun knows Kira is the Strike pilot, he does not reveal this to the others in his ZAFT team.


Before he leaves Orb with the Archangel, Cagalli shows Kira that his parents are watching him depart. Kira asks Cagalli to apologize to them for him, explaining he cannot see them right now, especially when he might say things that he may regret. Kira tells her to be safe and thanks her. As he turns to go inside the Archangel, Cagalli embraces him and tells him not to die and to come back to see her again, which Kira promises.


Kira and Athrun: A tragic duel

While en route to the Earth Alliance Alaskan base JOSH-A, the Archangel is attacked by Athrun and his comrades. During the initial skirmish, Kira damages all of ZAFT's opposing mobile suits. However, Kira accidentally kills Nicol Amalfi, a close friend of Athrun's and pilot of the GAT-X207 Blitz Gundam, when Nicol tries to protect Athrun. Athrun realizes that Nicol's death could have been prevented by killing Kira, and he vows to do so the next time they meet. In their next battle, Kira's friend Tolle Koenig is killed when Athrun destroys the FX-550 Skygrasper he was piloting. Kira and Athrun try to kill each other to avenge their dead friends, and Kira winds up seriously injured when Athrun attaches the Aegis to the Strike and bails out before the Aegis self-destructs.

Acquiring A New Sword: The ZGMF-X10A Freedom

Although believed dead, Kira ends up on PLANT in the mansion of Lacus Clyne. The anime does not explain how he ends up in Reverend Malchio's garden, but makes it clear that Malchio had brought him to the Clynes. The Gundam SEED manga shows Kira stagger to Malchio's before collapsing. In the Astray manga, he is pulled from the wreckage of the Strike by Junk Guild member Lowe Guele, who turns Kira over to Reverend Malchio, a friend of the Clyne family (Kira thanks Guele when ReHOME delivers supplies for the Three Ships Alliance later in the war).

Kira descends to Earth after stealing the ZGMF-X10A Freedom

During this time, Lacus and Kira grow closer to each other. Lacus tells Kira that he is safe and that he can stay as long as he wants to. However, he overhears a message to Lacus' father Siegel Clyne, from Council member Eileen Canaver that PLANT chairman Patrick Zala lied about ZAFT's newest major operation and that the bulk of ZAFT forces are actually on their way to crush JOSH-A in Alaska, the main base of the Earth Alliance military and where the Archangel is currently stationed. Kira decides to leave PLANT and save his friends onboard the Archangel. Lacus helps Kira enter a ZAFT base and gives him the ZGMF-X10A Freedom, then kisses his cheek.

During the Battle of JOSH-A, the Archangel warns Kira about the underground Cyclops system and Kira alerts both ZAFT and Earth Alliance soldiers of the impending danger. Yzak Joule refuses to believe him and attacks Kira with the Duel. Even though Yzak killed Elle and the other refugees, Kira refrains from killing him in return. Instead, he disables the Duel and saves Yzak from the Cyclops blast, keeping with his vow to limit casualties for any and all sides on the battlefield. He even saved a damaged GINN but the pilot died later.

After the Battle of JOSH-A, the Archangel defects to Orb. In Orb, Cagalli tearfully welcomes Kira with an embrace that tackles him to the ground, Cagalli calls him an idiot while beating him and admitting she feared he was dead. Kira comforts Cagalli by reminding her that he kept his promise to return.


Later, Athrun decides that Kira is not his enemy. Using the ZGMF-X09A Justice, Athrun aids the Archangel during the Earth Alliance's invasion of Orb. After staving off the Earth Alliance, Athrun and Kira call a truce to discuss the situation. They acknowledge that Nicol and Tolle did not deserve to die, and that they had wanted to kill each other despite being best friends, in order to avenge the deaths of their comrades. Kira asserts something that was previously noted by Lacus about what they should be fighting for. Kira asks Athrun to join Orb, so they can eventually put an end to the war.

The Earth Alliance attacks Orb again. Uzumi Nara Athha sacrifices his life in order to prevent the Earth Alliance from getting their hands on their main target: Orb's mass driver. Before that happens, however, he gives Cagalli a photograph of her and Kira when they were infants and tells her that although she is leaving her father she will not be alone, for she will be with her brother.

During the Battle of Mendel, Kira learns from Rau Le Creuset that Caridad and Haruma Yamato are not his biological parents. His true parents were Ulen and Via Hibiki, geneticists who are both deceased. He also learns that he is the Ultimate Coordinator; his fetus was artificially developed outside his mother's womb, and all his genetic enhancements are exactly as they were intended to be. He is the only fetus to be successfully developed using the apparatus. Kira also learns that Cagalli is indeed his twin sister, who was born naturally and not genetically altered.

In the lifepod, Flay says she has something that will end the war. Upon hearing Kira's voice again, Flay weeps with joy, since she thought he was dead.

Relationship with Lacus Clyne

During Gundam SEED, Lacus entrusts Kira with her ring during later episodes, followed by a kiss from Kira on Lacus' cheek. In Japanese (or East Asian in general) tradition, when a woman entrusts an ornament to a man, it usually implies romantic love and later, marriage.[citation needed]


In the short "aftermath" OVA following the end of SEED, Lacus and Kira are clearly shown living together and the continue to do so in Destiny. The two are often shown embracing and holding hands. Lacus is shown to be uneasy whenever Kira goes off to battle.

Fighting skills

While lacking any true form of military training, Kira's fighting prowess has developed much as the series progresses. In the original SEED series, Kira is shown to be inexperienced with handguns, preferring not to use them. During a Blue Cosmos assassination attempt on Andrew Waltfeld, Kira chooses to throw the gun rather than shoot someone. He even has to be reminded by Mu to remove the safety on his gun in episode 44 while in pursuit of Rau on Mendel station. He is shown as a skilled unarmed fighter, however, and is extremely efficient with his mobile suit's artillery. Furthermore, in the glossary of the PS2 game Never Ending Tomorrow, his rapid advancement in piloting skills is described to have been caused by Rau le Creuset's revelation of his being born out of an artificial womb.

Birdy is shown throughout the series, in various episodes, and is a symbol of Kira and Athrun's friendship.[5]


Trivia

  • Kira Yamato's surname is derived from Japan's historical Yamato period. His given name derives from a corruption of the word "killer" according to the director, Fukuda. [1]. (This way of using "Kira" is also found in the manga Death Note.) For other use of the name, which literally means great peace, see Yamato. However, it must be noted that Kira Yamato's name is mostly written in katakana, not in kanji or hiragana.
  • According to commentary the first Gundam SEED novel, Fukuda once made Soichiro Hoshi (Kira's seiyu) cry when he commented that though Kira was the main character, he might not survive to the end. This refers to how SEED was originally meant to end - Kira was supposed to die killing Le Creuset, Flay was supposed to be a human bomb that took out the Archangel, and Athrun was meant to lose a limb (though like many other of the original ideas that Fukuda had these were never used).
  • Despite holding the rank of Admiral and being nominally the commander of the entire Orb fleet at the end of SEED Destiny, Kira functioned mostly as the squad leader for Archangel's mobile suit complement, leaving control of fleet movements to lower-ranked but more experienced officers.
  • In episode 23 of Gundam SEED Destiny, when Kira goes into SEED mode, the SEED is green instead of lavender. However this is fixed in the DVD version.
