Hathaway Noa was born in the year UC 0080.

U.C. 0087: Gryps Conflict

Hathaway and his family held hostage by the Titans

By 0087, Hathaway, his younger sister Cheimin and Mirai were living aboard the Coral Oriental, a civilian ship in the waters of New Hong Kong. Mirai was seeking a ticket for a flight to space at the Luio & Co. office in New Hong Kong so the three of them could be with Bright [1]. They were later taken hostage by the Titans for their relation to Bright. During the rescue attempt, Hathaway almost drowned before being rescued by Amuro Ray who instructed Mirai to resuscitate Hathaway [2].

U.C. 0093: Char's Rebellion

After Char Aznable decided to drop an asteroid on the Earth, Hathaway and his family attempted to escape the doomed Earth. They were initially turned away from a departing space shuttle, but intervention from Adenauer Paraya allowed only Hathaway to board the shuttle. The shuttle was caught in a battle with Neo Zeon, but were rescued by the Ra Cailum, commanded by Bright. While on the Ra Cailum, Hathaway got to know Quess more, discussing such topics as Newtypes and Char's actions. Amuro, Hathaway and Quess later visited the Londenion colony, meeting Char in person. As Amuro got into a fist fight with Char, Quess also followed to intervene, leaving Hathaway to watch from the side. In the final battle to stop Axis from colliding with Earth, Hathaway got into a Jegan and launched. He tried to persuade Quess in her NZ-333 α Azieru to stop fighting but Quess had already lost her mind and did not listen to his reasoning. Chan Agi in a damaged RGZ-91 Re-GZ fired on the Alpha Azieru, killing Quess. Grief-stricken, Hathaway returned fire and destroyed the Re-GZ, killing Chan and releasing the Psycho-Frame sample she had [3].

According to Hathaway, the incident of him piloting the Jegan against military regulations was overlooked due to the Federation victory [4].

U.C. 0105: Mafty Uprising

Having completed a short military service [5], Hathaway began training as a botanical observer and was to conduct research with Professor Amada Munsun on Sulawesi Island [5][4].

Hathaway now led the anti-Federation government organization “Mafty,” under the pseudonym “Mafty Navue Erin." Having taken a stand against the corruption of the Earth Sphere. Mafty carried out fierce acts of terrorism, assassinating high officials of the Federation government one after another, gaining a certain level of support from the populace who were growing more opposed to the Federation government [6].

Haunzen Flight 356 Hijacking

After leaving Anaheim Electronics, he had booked Haunzen Flight 356 for Hong Kong. This was so he could see the faces of cabinet ministers that he and Mafty planned to target at the Adelaide Conference [4].

During the flight, he met attendant Mace Flower, who offered a drink to him whilst he was reading Aerial Environmental Botany, written by his professor. He asked for another glass of what he had previously, to which she told him that he's the only passenger who'd finished every meal since they left the moon. He then overheard Gigi Andalucia discussing Mafty's ideology with Kenneth Sleg.

When the Haunzen reached Low Earth Orbit, hijackers entered the passenger cabin, and a brief moment of turbulence caused Ms. Flower to land in Hathaway's arms who told her to put her seatbelt on. While the terrorists' ringleader instructed Kenneth to disarm, Hathaway told Ms. Flower to not make eye contact.

After Hiram Mescher was killed by the self-proclaimed Mafty Erin, Hathaway volunteered to clean up the corpse, claiming experience from the last war. He and the purser bagged Mescher's body and secured it in his seat. Beatrice Mescher regained consciousness and rushed to Hiram's body, prompting Fake Mafty to shoot her, also. Hathaway reached towards Fake Mafty, as if to stop the shooting. Fake Mafty turned to him. While staring down the barrel of Fake Mafty's gun, Hathaway heard Quess's voice in his head, telling him "Do it! Do it! they're fakes!", Gigi then repeated the same words aloud. Hathaway disarmed and disabled Fake Mafty, stealing his pistol to shoot the terrorist at the front of the cabin. Hathaway went to the cockpit to deal with the rest of the terrorists. He killed one and tackled the second, but was unable to defend himself when a third terrorist rose from the pilot's seat. The clown-masked terrorist laughed threateningly at the defenseless Hathaway, but was shot by Kenneth.

For repelling the hijackers with his military training and physical strength, he received praise from many of the ministers [5].
