Henken Bekkener (ヘンケン・ベッケナー?) is a character from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.


Gundam the Ride: A Baoa Qu

Henken Bekkener captained a modified Salamis-class cruiser in the Battle of A Baoa Qu. He and his crew would later abandon ship after a MA-04X Zakrello attacked and sunk the ship.

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

A former member of the Earth Federation, Henken was on board a ship that was attacked by Char Aznable in his MSN-02 Zeong mobile suit. Following the war, he joined the Anti Earth Union Group and became the Captain of the Argama. As the captain of the Argama, Henken commanded the ship during several missions, including the capture of the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II from a Titan base. He quickly grew attracted to Titans pilot-turned-AEUG pilot Emma Sheen, who initially refused his advances although eventually began warming up to him. Following the rescue of a Temptation-class space shuttle, Henken was replaced as captain of the Argama by the Temptation's captain Bright Noa. Henken went on to captain the Radish, a new battleship in the AEUG fleet. During the Gryps Conflict, Henken ordered the Radish to support Emma, who was engaged in a battle against Yazan Gable in his RX-139 Hambrabi. Yazan ultimately shot down the ship single-handedly, forcing Emma to watch in horror as Henken died in front of her.
