Eco Calore (エコ・カローレ Eko Karōre?) is a fictional character in the side stories of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. In Mobile Suit Gundam 00F, Eco serves as the spare Gundam Meister for Celestial Being's Fereshte.
Personality & Character
Eco is an outspoken, insecure, simple-minded, childish, and unconfident person. He likes to showoff and prove he's better, often to be proven wrong and try to retort with something clever, but only to be defeated in such debates. He's a supporter of Aeolia Schenberg's ideals. He would righteously defend those who would say otherwise to Celestial Being's cause. He wears a replica AEU uniform.
Skills & Abilities
Eco received training in piloting Gundams and various support craft for CB. He was originally selected as a candidate to pilot the GN-001 Gundam Exia, however he was deemed sub-par to Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei. After joining Fereshte, Veda approved him as Meister to support the Ptolemy group. Fellow Meister Fon Spaak likes to make fun of Eco by comparing him to Setsuna, often explaining why Setsuna's grasp of battle tactics alone make him the better Meister.
Not much is known about Eco's past.
Joining Celestial Being
Like all members, Eco was approved by Veda to be part of Celestial Being; it's unknown how was Eco selected nor his reasons for becoming part of the organization. It's presumed Eco was selected for his MS piloting potential as part of the line-up of third generation Gundams. Ultimately, he was deemed sub-par to Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei and have since been transferred to Fereshte as a reserve meister and support pilot (much to his dismay).
Fereshte Shadow Operations
As there was only one GN Drive for all of the Fereshte's Gundams to share and since Fon is a better pilot than him, Eco mostly served as a support staff for the team.
The Fereshte eventually rejoins with the the reborn Celestial Being in AD 2311, bringing the 0 Gundam's GN Drive for 00 Gundam's development. The Fereshte's members are reassigned to Celestial Being's various resource satellites for MS development and coordination.
Gundam 00V: Battlefield Record
Eco returns in 00V: Battlefield Record, piloting the repaired Gundam Astraea Type F2 which has now been modified to operate without an original GN Drive after it was abandoned by Fon on the moon. The unit is launched to test out the newly developed GN Hammer. The GN hammer has a new material in the spikes making it more effective against other mobile suits. The testing was interrupted by the sudden arrival of Amy's Advanced GN-X and after a brief battle, Eco retreated on Sherilyn's orders.
