Emily Asuno (エミリー・アモンド・アスノ Emirī Asuno?) (née Amonde) is the female lead of the first generation arc of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE. She is a childhood friend of Flit Asuno and eventually marries him by the second generation.
Personality & Character
She shows great concern and caring for Flit, often relating it back to the fact that the two of them are childhood friends and that she is closest to him. Her caring extends to the point that she willingly ignored common sense, military orders for civilians to evacuate, and her own general safety to reach the ship Diva in order to make sure Flit was alright after he piloted the Gundam. She is torn between understanding Flit's passion for developing Gundams to overthrow the UE, and her true feelings of not wanting him to participate in the battle. When Flit tells her about his decision to become a soldier and put himself in the battlefield, her desire to keep him away from the battle becomes stronger, and she plans to work with the people around Flit to keep him away from the battle. On the other hand, she is also a person of action, as she tries to rescue Flit from Zalam's custody in Fardain, even if she has to do it by herself.
After the fall of Nora, she follows Flit aboard the Diva, and later cancels her move to Tordia and volunteers to join the ship's crew. During the Battle of Ambat, she provides the behind-the-scenes help she can. In the first part of the novel version, she and Dique Gunhale serve as Vargas' assistants, but they are both prevented from disembarking from the Diva because they have been exposed to the AGE Builder, a military secret, and they become military apprentice technicians due to Grodek's falsification of the data. Initially, she works behind the scenes, as in the main anime, but after the events in the colony Fardain, she decides to fight, and from then on, she becomes the operator of the AGE Builder and is in charge of directing the renovation of the Diva. Vargas even says that she knows AGE Builders better than anyone else on this ship. Emily is shocked when she witnesses the intimate scene between Flit and Yurin L'Ciel in Minsry, but he encourages Flit via communication right after he loses Yurin.
In Part 2, she is 39 to 40 years old. She marries Flit and her name becomes "Emily Asuno", and she becomes the mother of Asemu and Unoa. It is said that Asemu's birth was quite difficult, and that she finally gave birth to Asemu after enduring terrible labor pains for 24 hours with Flit supporting her. In the second part of the novel version, it is said that she has become an excellent computer technician, along with Flit.
In Part 3, she is 63 years old. She becomes Kio's grandmother. When Olivernotes is invaded by Vagans, she and Romary evacuate to a neighboring town. In the third part of the novel version, before the attack on Olivernotes, she and Romary went up into space on business and escaped danger. In Part 4 of the novel version, it is revealed that the reason she went into space before the attack on Olivernotes was to "develop a Gundam that can handle X-Rounders". She and Romary met with Unoa. They also made a spare AGE Builder.
