Johann Trinity (ヨハン・トリニティ Yohan Toriniti?) is a fictional character in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Johann is the leader and the eldest brother among the Trinity Siblings. Like his siblings, he was genetically engineered using Ribbons Almark's genetic material. Johann is the pilot of GNW-001 Gundam Throne Eins.
Personality & Character
Johann maintains a collected, cool, secretive, and well mannered personality. Oldest of the three siblings, Johann pilots the Gundam Throne Eins. Undertaking the mission to eradicate the world's strife, he began armed interventions alongside Michael and Nena. He is a calm person who faithfully handles his given missions while he commands his problematic brother and sister. His rational and cool-headed demeanor provides a subtle contrast to his fiery and stubborn younger siblings. Also unlike his younger siblings, Johann does not enjoy killing in and of itself, so he avoids taking lives not involved in their missions. An excellent marksman, he handles the firing of the GN Mega Launcher equipped on the Gundam Throne Eins. During his fight against Ali in Michael's Throne Zwei, he displays a sense of pride in being a Gundam Meister.
Skills & Capabilities
Johann's abilities aren't completely understood. Although he was created from Ribbons Almark's genetic material, he did not demonstrate any Innovade abilities. He was given the abilities to pilot a Gundam and apparently his skills lies with long range MS combat; he's also skilled in basic firearms.
In the year A.D. 2307, during the CB's world armed intervention. Team Trinity remained inactive until their mission at the Taklamakan desert. At the near defeat of Celestial Being, the Thrones provided assistance and freed the Meisters from the world armies. After saving them, they left coordinates for a meeting and headed to meet Fereshte.
Battle for GN Drive
Shortly after their intervention at the Taklamakan Desert, the Trinitys headed to space to intercept Fereshte. They went there in attempts to acquire an original GN Drive. Being validated by Veda, Fereshte initially agreed to hand over the GN Drive to Team Trinity; the situation felt too suspicious to Fereshte Meister Fon Spaak. 0 Gundam's GN Drive at the time was attached to GNY-004 Gundam Plutone, piloted by Fon. Fon retaliated and fought against the Trinitys. To swiftly acquire the GN Drive, Johann had Veda detonate Fon's explosive necklace. While the move critically injured Fon, Hanayo ejected and escaped with Plutone's core fighter. With the GN Drive lost, the Trinitys returned to their mothership to meet up with the Ptolemy crew.
Celestial Being's Internal Conflict
Escaping UN Forces
During an attack at a HRL base, Johann and the rest of the Trinitys presumed another victory until the appearance of HRL's GN-X Squadron. The HRL MS squad is the first squadron to have GN T Drives. The GN-X's gave the Thrones difficulty in battle and forced them to retreat. Since then, the Trinitys were on the defensive and eventually on the run. Their African base was discovered by the GN-X Squadron and they were forced to flee.
While being cornered by the UN Forces, Ali came to the Trinity's hiding spot in pretense of not being an enemy. However, while talking about Laguna Harvey, Ali suddenly shot Michael in the chest, with Johann and Nena looking on shocked. Johann ordered Nena back into her Throne Drei while he tried to retaliate, but Ali was too fast and quickly overtook the Meister, dislocating his shoulder. Johann later gets back into the Throne Eins, telling Nena to escape while he deals with Ali before suddenly being attacked by Ali in the Throne Zwei. Shocked that he was able to bypass Zwei's biometric scans, he began trying to shoot down Ali, but he was too fast for Ein's weapons. Ali was soon able to overtake Johann, shooting at the Eins's rear while Johann was helpless. His final thoughts on how they were created to be Meisters, Eins explodes in a spectacular explosion over the island, scattering it's wreckage across the shoreline.
