Thread devoted to the Zabike, Leaders of the Principality of Zeon!
(Zabike, pronounced somewhere around Zabee-keh, meaning Zabi Clan/Family)
The Zabi Family consists of:
Degwin sodo Zabi (Father)
Gihren Zabi (Firstborn)
Saslo Zabi (Obscure brother who died before the OYW)
Dozul Zabi (Son)
Kycilia Zabi Daughter)
Garma Zabi (Youngest Son)
Zena Zabi (Married with Dozul)
Mineva Lao Zabi (Daughter of Dozul/Zena)
Other notable people:
Zeon Zum Deikun (Leader of the Republic of Zeon)
Char Aznable (Ace pilot and on a personal vendetta against them)
Shin Matsunaga (Dozul's Bodyguard and trusted friend)
M'Quve (Kycilia's loyal Subordinate)
Johnny Ridden (Ace pilot and childhood acquaintance of Kycilia Zabi)
Cecilia Irene (Personal Secretary of Gihren, arrested after the OYW)
Mian Fahren (Daughter of Zena and Vlad Fahren, before Zena married Dozul)
Leopold Fieseler (Detective attempting to uncover a plot to assassinate Gihren)
It is often implied that the Zabis are responsible for Zeon's death, which Char firmly believes, though there has never been any proof: The said Assassins were supposedly captured and Saslo Zabi, one of Degwin's children is killed shortly after in a car bombing.
There is a self-styled garage band named "Zabike", which is themed on the Principality of Zeon.
Lets start with...
Degwin Sodo Zabi
Units: Gwazine Class Flagship (The Great Degwin)
The Big-Daddy of the Zabi Family who was declared Zeon Deikun's successor on his Death-Bed.
Degwin's favourite is his youngest Son Garma, who he had high hopes for (because Kycilia and Ghiren keep on bickering and Dozul is the dumbest among them, something that even Dozul himself was aware of). After Garma's Death, Degwin is shaken and lets Ghiren take over, though Ghiren's methods and Ideals of a superior spacenoid race was never his cup of tea (at one point even calling him "Hitler's Tail", though Ghiren took it as compliment). Degwin Zabi dies as he attempts Peace Talks with the Federation's General Revil, but Ghiren blasts both their fleets away with the Solar Ray.
Ohno, the large-chested cosplay-freak from Genshiken feels attracted to Bald headed old/middle age males with sunglasses and uses them as *fap material*...
She has a *custom made Poster of Degwin Sodo Zabi* in her room (see centre, Genshiken has a lot of Gundam references among others, though its sometimes slightly censored into "Gungal")... for those long and lonely nights perhaps?
