Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny

The leader of the group of terrorists - former ZAFT soldiers still loyal to the late Patrick Zala - who caused the Junius Seven Colony Drop out of vengeance for those whom they lost in the Bloody Valentine Tragedy three years earlier. In a last desperate act, Sato tries to take Athrun Zala down with him by clinging to the ZAKU that Athrun is piloting, but Shinn Asuka intervenes by severing the ZAKU's leg and kicking him away thus causing Sato to crash onto the colony. He is killed when the LHM-BB01 Minerva fired its "Tannhäuser" positron cannon at Junius Seven.

Lacus Clyne later discovers that all of Sato's ZAFT files have been erased by an unknown party (heavily implied to be Gilbert Durandal).[1]
