Character: Athrun Zala & Cagalli Yula Athha
About the characters:
Athrun was born in December City of the PLANTs on October 29, CE 55. In CE 61, Patrick Zala sends Athrun to attend a preparatory school in Copernicus City, located on the Moon. Here, he meets Kira Yamato and they become good friends. In CE 68, Patrick calls Athrun back from Copernicus City. Just before he leaves, Athrun builds a robotic pet bird, Birdy (Torii in the Japanese version), which he gives to Kira.
Cagalli Yula Athha is the adopted daughter of Uzumi Nara Athha, Representative and “Lion” of the Orb Union, and has the title of princess. Despite her aristocratic upbringing, Cagalli is tough and headstrong, and her impulsive nature often leads her to take bold risks. She is also Kira Yamato’s twin sister, although neither is aware of this until late in the Bloody Valentine War. In Gundam SEED Destiny, she takes over her late father’s position and becomes the Head Representative of ORB.
