Linda Vashti (リンダ・ヴァスティ Rinda Vasutei?) is a character that appears in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Linda is Ian Vashti's wife and mother to Mileina Vashti. She appeared as a Celestial Being chief engineer next to Ian in Season 2. She returns in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer as support engineer to GNT-0000 00 Qan[T].
Personality & Character
Linda is shown to be an astute engineer and loving mother. Linda has shown pride and joy over her work because her efforts is able to help her loved ones and Celestial Being.
Skills & Abilities
Linda is the second lead engineer next to Ian. As Ian is often sent to perform field operations, Linda is left in charge of managing and developing new GN-technologies. This suggests her skills excel in quantum physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aeronautics, and robotics. She's also seen capable of fully utilizing a shuttle and the secondary bridge of CBS-74 Ptolemaios 2, suggesting additional skills in ship piloting and use of artillery weapons.
She is a beautiful young woman with glasses, and like her husband, she is a CB engineer. At the secret base in Lagrange 3, she was involved in the development of new weapons as well as support machines such as the O Raiser and GN Archer. Her disproportionately young age for a 57-year-old Ian shocked the Ptolemy 2 crew when they first met her, and Allelujah Haptism laughed at him, saying that it was a crime. When the base falls due to an attack by the A-Laws, she escapes with the rest of the CB staff in a transport ship, and is escorted by the Archer Arios to a safe zone. Before the final battle, she delivers additional armaments for the Gundams and the 0 Gundam to Ptolemy 2, and during the battle, she and Ian control the weapon system from the Ptolemy 2's sub-bridge. After the final battle, she remains in the CB and develops new Gundams with her husband.
