Mobile Suit Gundam SEED X Astray (機動戦士ガンダムＳＥＥＤ Ｘ ＡＳＴＲＡＹ) is a manga series set in the Cosmic Era time-line. In late 2003, both the Gundam SEED TV series and the first ASTRAY manga came to an end. The first ASTRAY series was continued by X ASTRAY, again written by Tomohiro Chiba and illustrated by Koichi Tokita. This series picks up after ASTRAY and is set during the two-month gap between episodes 46 and 47 of Gundam SEED. Although Lowe still figures prominently, the story switches focus to two new characters: Canard Pars and Prayer Reverie. Canard, an agent of the Eurasian Federation, is on a mission to track down Kira Yamato, while Prayer Reverie is on a mission to solve Earth's energy crisis. X ASTRAY ran for two volumes and is available in the U.S. from Tokyopop.

- Re: Master Parts 4: Lowe & Kisato
Natural, fellow Junk Tech with Lowe, Liam, and the Professor. She has the hobby of collecting memorabilia of the First Coordinator George Glenn. She lacks self-confidence and is easily frightened when there is fighting, pilots a custom Kimera and later a modified version of the BuCUE Andrew Waltfeld Custom.
Artificially Intelligent computer found by Lowe on a drifting spacecraft. Named after the only visible writing on its casing, it serves as a co-pilot for Lowe's Gundam Astray Red Frame.
As the Garfields wanted to bridge the gap between Naturals and Coordinators, Liam was born as a Coordinator while his twin brother is a Natural. Due to his unique background, he has a habit of observing the Naturals' behaviors (especially Lowe). He pilots a customized Kimera and a Works GINN.
A Natural, he is an excellent engineer, technician, and pilot of the MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame. First operated from the HOME, with the Professor, Kisato Yamabuki, and Liam Garfield; later transferred to ReHOME.
Natural; real name and her past unknown. A brilliant scientist and captain of the Marseille III-class ship, HOME, she is also a close friend of Morgenroete's Erica Simmons. She later creates a holographic body for George Glenn so that she won't have to bother with commanding the new Cornelius-class ship, ReHOME.
The first Coordinator, he obtained his doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at the age of 17. He had numerous achievements: he was a star athlete, an Olympic silver medalist, as well as a famous American football player. He was also an ace pilot in the Air Force, and has numerous achievements in the field of aerospace engineering. As he departs for a mission to Jupiter, he revealed his Coordinator identity and gave away his genetic secret to the world. Years after his return to Earth, he created a new concept for space colony construction which would lead to the PLANTs. He was assassinated in C.E. 53 by a young Natural, but his brain was preserved (exact methods unknown) in the GG Unit. 18 years later, the Junk Guild team of Lowe, Liam, Kisato, and the Professor obtained the GG unit, and the Professor created a holographic body for George Glenn.
The 6 years old and highly intelligent daughter of Loretta. Due to her background, she has an adult-like judgment and mental toughness. She serves as liaison to Serpent Tail's clients. Unknown if she is a Natural or a Coordinator.
Natural, mother of Kazahana Aja and the only woman among members of Serpent Tail. She is an explosives expert and tactician. She is very popular among the mercenaries, and previously worked for EA, unknown why she left.
Coordinator and Gai's wingman, pilots the ZGMF-1017 Elijah's GINN. Previously, he was with ZAFT. He has a very handsome look, but although he is a Coordinator, he does not possess the superior physiology of a Coordinator. As such, his MS piloting skills are poor initially, but through the experiences he gained on the battlefield as a mercenary, his skills have improved substantially. A "2" can be found on the Serpent Tail emblem on his mobile suit.
Coordinator, a shrewd mercenary with excellent battle sense and the leader of the Serpent Tail mercenary company, and pilot of the MBF-P03 Gundam Astray Blue Frame, MBF-P03secondL Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L and their variants. He first meets Lowe Guele at the remains of Heliopolis. Nobody knows his past, where he was actually a Combat Coordinator developed by the Earth Alliance. His combat abilities were completed at a high level, but his mental control was incomplete when he escaped the research facility. A "1" can be found on the Serpent Tail emblem on his mobile suit.
Natural; captain of Serpent Tail's Laurasia-class frigate. He was a former Earth Alliance intelligence operative and still has contacts within the EA. A known alcoholic.
Natural; Eurasian Federation pilot of the CAT1-X2/3 Hyperion Unit 2. Balsam is the self-proclaimed "Eagle of Artemis", and claims to be an ace pilot despite his lack of real combat experience. The eight "kill" markings on Hyperion Unit 2 actually refer to his "kills" in simulated combat.
Natural; Earth Alliance Newtype ace pilot, and a Eurasian linear tank commander before the introduction of EA mobile suits. Pilots a GAT-01 Strike Dagger, and a GAT-01A1+AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Dagger until the end of the war. Also known as the "Mad Dog of the Moonlight", he is actually quite calm and methodical in battle.
Natural; Admiral in Eurasian Federation forces, in charge of the Artemis asteroid fortress. After the "Umbrella of Artemis" was destroyed by GAT-X207 Blitz Gundam and the escape of the Archangel, he contacted the Serpent Tail mercenary company for the defense of the base. Later, held Elijah Kiel hostage when he wants to acquire the Gundam Astray Red Frame to make up for the loss of the Strike. When Gai Murakumo fights with Lowe Guele and successfully brings the Red Frame close to the control room, the situation reverses and Garcia was held hostage by Elijah. Was later spared by the Serpent Tail.
Coordinator; Eurasian Federation ace pilot and "Special Forces" member, Canard is a product of the same "Ultimate Coordinator" project as Kira Yamato. He hates Kira and initially plans to find him and kill him. Canard initially pilots the CAT1-X1/3 Hyperion Gundam Unit 1, under the command of Gerard Garcia.
Natural; Captain of Agamemnon class carrier Ortigia. She has a strong grudge against the Atlantic Federation. Meriol works with Canard, and turns against Garcia when he orders Canard's arrest.
Coordinator; co-head of the Sahaku family of the Orb Union and the twin sister of Rondo Gina Sahaku. More empathetic and calm than her brother. She inherits and pilots his MBF-P01-ReAMATU Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu after his death.
Natural; a blind priest trusted by both the PLANTs and Earth Alliance, thus allowing him to serve as an occasional envoy between the two. He runs an orphanage in the Marshall Islands and also, with Lowe's aid, brings the severely injured Kira Yamato to Lacus Clyne after Kira's near-fatal battle with Athrun Zala. Also closely aligned to the Junk Guild and a mentor to Prayer Reverie.
