Fredrik Ades is a fictional character from the anime television series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
The captain of the Nazca-class destroyer, Vesalius which serves as Rau Le Creuset's base of operations. Cautious and practical by nature, Ades is sometimes taken aback by his commander's aggressive tactics, but nonetheless he loyally carries out Le Creuset's orders. He was killed at the Battle of Mendel when the Vesalius is destroyed by the Kusanagi and the Eternal.
- Ades takes on the role of Dren as he serves as Rau's second-in-command, just like Dren did for Char Aznable (prior to Char's transfer).
