Personality & Traits
Unlike most Titans officers, Buran acknowledged the AEUG as a group that wanted to protect the Earth and not simply a group of terrorists.
When the AEUG and their Karaba allies escaped from the Federation's former headquarters, Jaburo, aboard a pair of stolen Garuda-class carriers (the Audhumla and Sudori), Buran lead his mobile suit squadron in pursuit of the rebels piloting the new transformable mobile suit NRX-044 Asshimar. Although his team was unable to prevent an AEUG shuttle from returning to space during his first attack at the Kennedy Spaceport, they were able to capture the Sudori and Buran killed Quattro Bajeena's wingman Roberto.
Using the Sudori to continue his pursuit of the AEUG, Buran met Cyber Newtype Rosamia Badam after she docked with his airship. He then launched another attack on the Audhumla but was thwarted after former Federation ace Amuro Ray rammed a cargo plane into his Asshimar, forcing him to retreat. Despite receiving orders to allow the Audhumla to cross the Pacific Ocean for strategic reasons, Buran attacked the carrier again but was killed due to the combined efforts of Amuro Ray and Kamille Bidan.
Notes & Trivia
- "Buran" is Russian for "blizzard" (Бура́н, buran). Whether this is supposed to imply that he has Russian roots or is simply a coincidence is unknown.
