Duker Iq (ドゥカー・イク Douku Iku) is a fictional character in Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.

Character

Duker Iq is represented as having an extreme passion for motorcycles. This is evidenced throughout the series as he initially appears in a "Kou" Battle Bike in a squad with Renda De Paloma. They ambush and pursue the League Militaire as they are attempting to flee in a large MS transport plane. His attack damages the plane, but he is unable to prevent them from escaping. Duker later attacks with his squad again and even comments about "biker spirit" at one point when attacking the League Militaire. Ultimately his passion is evidenced when he suggests the formation of the Motorad Squadron. An entire force themed around motorcycles with motorcycle warships such as the Adrastea and Lysithea, motorcycle mecha - the "Kou" and "Ohtu" Battle Bikes as well as the ZMT-A03G Galicson and even the Twinrad, a giant wheel in which mobile suits can operate. Duker Iq seems loyal, but his loyalties are often distracted by his passion which seems to overwhelm all other reason for him. This trait does not begin to be overcome until he discovers his feelings for Renda De Paloma.

History

Duker Iq first appears in the series pursuing and attacking the League Millitaire with "Kou" and "Ohtu" Battle Bikes, supported by a Galicson. He attempts to stop their escape in a plane, but ultimately fails in his repeated attempts to destroy them. Later Duker Iq gives a report to Queen Maria Pure Armonia in which he summarizes the encounters between the Zanscare Forces such as BESPA and the League Militaire. He goes on to introduce his Adrastea design of cruiser explaining that it will quell rebellion against Zanscare by inspiring fear. Duker continues to the Zanscare Empire, becoming captain of a Lysithea and using it during Operation Giant Roller. During the operation he finds his true feelings for his subordinate Renda De Paloma and the two begin to become close. This does not last long however as his last battle soon occurs when he attacks the White Arc during a cease fire between the Zanscare Empire and the Earth Federation. Odelo in rage attacks his ship and destroys its bridge killing both him and Renda. After their deaths, the Newtypes of the League Militaire see the souls of Duker and Renda riding a motorcycle peacefully. The souls then ride all the way to a nice cabin in the woods, revealing what their life would have been like after the war.
