Personality & Character
Despite being the leader of the Turbines, a subsidiary of Teiwaz, Naze is courteous and easygoing. While ruthless to his enemies, he is loyal to his friends and crew, and does have clear lines of morality, being disgusted with how the Tekkadan's crew were fitted with the Alaya-Vijnana system despite being children by their former employer.
Skills & Abilities
Naze is a skilled ship captain, showing little to no worry when engaging in battle. He is also able to pilot the Hammerhead on his own.
Naze's harem of wives came to be by hiring women to be part of his crew to keep them from more dangerous work. He loved them all, although sees some as daughters instead of wives.
After Tekkadan's battle with the Mobile Armor Hashmal, Naze was framed for transporting an illegal weapon, the Dainsleif type railgun, by the combined efforts of Jasley Donomikols and Iok Kujan. This resulted in the Turbines being labelled as an "illegal organization".
Naze died when he charged the Hammerhead towards Iok Kujan's ship during Gjallarhorn's assault against the Turbines.
Azee later started dressing like Naze in honor of his memory.
Hammerhead's Crew: Surprisingly Naze's entire crew are also his wives and he has fathered children with them. While it's clear Amida is his favourite, he loves all his wives and children, managing to provide for all of them.
Orga Itsuka: Naze is Orga's mentor and his initial partner in Teiwaz. Orga calls him "big brother" and he has a deep affection and an unconditional trust in Naze. For his part, Naze believes in Orga skills and always encouraging him. He treats Orga with utmost care, to the extent that he declined his help and actually asked him not to intervene when he was framed.
Notes & Trivia
- Naze bears some similarities to Paptimus Scirocco, a charismatic, promiscuous man with a high influence, who also hails from Jupiter. Unlike Scirocco, who manipulated women for his own ends, Naze loves them genuinely.
- He also bears some resemblance to Ricardo Fellini, both in appearance and personality. However, Ricardo only has Kirara with him, while Naze has multiple women. Nonetheless, both are womanizers.
- Naze Turbine's voice actor, Kōsuke Toriumi, also voiced Captain Ash in Mobile Suit Gundam AGE.
