Chara Soon (キャラ・スーン) is a character from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. She is known for her erratic behavior while piloting mobile suits.
Chara's first appearance is when she was sent as an observer by Haman Karn for Neo Zeon officer Mashymre Cello, and was later assigned to replace him as the Endra's captain due to his constant failures against the AEUG ship, the Argama. After being captured by the AEUG, Chara was forced to serve as a cleaning lady for much of her disgust under the watch of the two children Shinta and Qum until she was able to escape while the ship was docked at the lunar city of Granada. Chara is later seen on an asteroid mine near Axis, overseeing its mining operations, also having apparently becoming a Cyber Newtype and later fights alongside Haman's forces against remnants of Glemy Toto's rebel forces. Where she ultimately dies in a newtype flash similar to Mashymre's and taking a number of AMX-004G Qubeley Mass Production Type units piloted by Newtype clones of Elpeo Ple down with her.
A female commander that has an unstable personality. Chara's mood swings are so constant that she sometimes goes out of control in a mobile suit battle. It is sometimes hard to tell what is an unstable personality and what is merely a cover. There are times when she will act innocent and shy while in battle she is noticeably aggressive, confident, and unpredictable. When trying to get something from men she often uses "feminine wiles" to obtain it, such as letting Mashymre Cello grab her breasts than getting a verbal confession of it on tape. While imprisoned aboard the Argama she attempted to seduce both Judau Ashta and captain Bright Noa to help her escape, but she failed both times.
- Chara Soon appears in the manga Char's Deleted Affair: Portrait Of Young Comet as a young woman who wants to join in the Axis-Zeon Independence War, which she would later volunteer for the military. Her original hair color was shown to be blonde, which by the timeline of Gundam ZZ would have been dyed on both sides.
