Amida Arca (アミダ・アルカ Amida Aruka?) is one of the fictional characters in the Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS anime series. She is a member of Turbines and the pilot of STH-05/AC Amida's Hyakuren.
Personality & Character
Amida is a tall, large built woman, towering over her husband Naze Turbine. She typically wears a button down shirt, knotted at her midriff, exposing scars on her abdomen and upper chest. In addition to piloting her STH-05/AC Amida's Hyakuren, she also takes command during combat. Before becoming Naze's wife, she wore light makeup and her hair was worn in a ponytail style.
Skills & Abilities
Though not a user of the Alaya-Vijnana System, she is nonetheless an exceptional pilot, and likely one of the best in the series. This was evident from how she was able to hold her ground against Julieta Juris (a very skilled pilot piloting the new high mobility Reginlaze Julia) using her older custom Hyakuren. The fact was further reinforced by Azee Gurumin and Lafter Frankland, who had frequently bested the Alaya-Vijnana-equipped pilots from Tekkadan during simulations, commenting that they still had a long way to go to catch up to Amida.
Amida was also inferred to be a skilled fighter with an extensive knowledge in firearms, from being able to hold her own as a female mercenary way before meeting Naze.
Amida was a mercenary hired by Naze Turbine, and eventually became his wife.
Battle against Tekkadan
She was killed during Iok Kujan's assault against the Turbines, when her Hyakuren was hit with a projectile from a Dainsleif railgun. Though her mobile suit was heavily damaged and she was on the brink of death, she was able to fire a final shot at Iok's ship, almost breaking through the ship's bridge.
Naze Turbine: Amida is Naze Turbine's first wife, so every time Naze brings in a new woman she scolds him but he's forgiven eventually.
Hammerhead's Crew: Amida treats the entire Hammerhead crew as family. It is also clear that all the girls respect her as the second-in-command of the Turbines.
