Eledore Massis (エレドア・マシス Eredoa Mashisu?) is a character from Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team. He fought in the One Year War as part of the 08th Mobile Suit Team, where he served as the team's sonar expert on the Hover Truck.
Personality & Character
Eledore is a very carefree and outgoing man. Between battles, he seems like a poor and undisciplined soldier, slacking off and listening to music instead of working, and freely admits that he's not cut out to be a soldier. On the battlefield, however, he takes his role very seriously: giving it his full attention, chastising his partner Michel Ninorich for being slow on the uptake, and putting himself in danger when he has to.
Eledore often flirts with teammate Karen Joshua, and develops feelings for her after he deliberately gets himself injured after escaping from Zeon troops that took over a town to keep the damaged Apsalus from being discovered.
Eledore is also an aspiring musician, and hopes to make it his career after the war.
Skills & Abilities
Eledore suffers from claustrophobia, which prevents him piloting a mobile suit; instead, Eledore serves the 08th MS Team in a support capacity from the Hover Truck. He possesses excellent hearing, and with the sonar sensors in the Hover Truck, can pick up on moving objects and pinpoint their exact location. Through this, he provides valuable intel on the location of enemy forces.
- Some official sources give his last name as Machis or Mathis; however, the spelling used in the official English release, Massis, is what is used on this wiki.
