Steiner Hardy (ハーディ・シュダイナー? Hardie Steiner) is a character from Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket. He is the captain of the Principality of Zeon's elite Cyclops Team.


Steiner Hardy is an experienced Zeon soldier and the captain of the Cyclops Team. His best friend, Andy Strauss was killed during the assault on the Earth Federation's Arctic base. He later obtains information on the RX-78NT-1 Gundam "Alex" from his old friend Charlie, a Zeon spy and also manager of the Pink Elephant bar in Libot, Side 6. Shortly thereafter, Lt. Col. Killing assigns Hardy's team to execute Operation Rubicon. In spite of Hardy asking for another veteran to take the late Strauss's place, Killing instead gives the rookie, Bernard Wiseman, as he had also obtained pictures of the suspicious activity within Libot. Steiner eventually realizes that his team is not expected to succeed at capturing Gundam Alex, but are merely pawns in Killing's larger plans.

Steiner has Bernard transport parts for their MS-18E Kämpfer to Libot through a battlefield posing as a construction worker. He and the rest of the Cyclops team later rejoin Bernard at Libot's security checkpoint, and they are able to enter the colony without incident. Upon taking the Kämpfer's parts to their factory, a young boy named Alfred Izuruha reports their shady activities to the police. Although Gabriel Ramirez Garcia wishes to kill the officer and Alfred, Steiner warns him against it, and Alfred immediately senses the danger of the officer and claims that Bernard was his long-lost brother, causing the annoyed officer to leave. When Bernard and Alfred are ordered to explain themselves, it is revealed that Bernard's pictures were actually taken by Alfred, in the hopes of being able to help Zeon. In response, Steiner hands Alfred a Zeon badge, making him an honorary member of Zeon, and asks Bernard to monitor Alfred. In reality, this move was made to prevent Alfred from snitching on them, as well as keeping Bernard away from the rest of the team. While meeting Charlie and venting his frustration of being given Bernard, being sent on a suicidal mission and the inevitable defeat of Zeon, he remarks that Libot is a rather peaceful colony, and wonders if he would be able to simply settle down here once his mission was complete.

When the Kämpfer is ready and the Alex's hangar is found, Steiner and rest of the Cyclops team meet with Charlie to get their costumes to infiltrate Libot's base, with Mikhail Kaminsky acting as the team's decoy. Unfortunately, Bernard flubs the questions given by the base's officers, exposing them and leading to a firefight inside. Hardy is mortally wounded inside Libot's E.F.F. base during, and Bernard Wiseman is soon ordered by Garcia to take the wounded captain to safety before making a vain attempt to plant bombs on the Alex. Ultimately, the Alex's pilot is able to board the Gundam and uses it to dispatch Kaminsky. Thanks to the chaos, Bernard is able to barely escape with his captain to a nearby forest.

Upon regaining consciousness, Hardy immediately inquires of the Alex's fate. Bernard lies and assures him that Kaminsky had dealt with the Alex, but Steiner sees through Bernard's attempt to put some peace in his mind. Nonetheless, he eventually succumbs to his wounds and passes away. Bernard later crafts a make-shift grave marker for his captain right beside his damaged MS-06FZ Zaku II Kai.



  • In Super Robot Taisen OE's version of War in the Pocket, the complete Cyclops Team, including Andy Strauss, who had outlived his original death, attack the Alex with all of their respective mobile suits. Surprisingly, Amuro arrives to reinforce the Alex alongside members from the 08th Mobile Suit Team to surround the Cyclops team. Just then, Char's squadron comes to aid of the Cyclops team. Despite this, Steiner's team and Char's forces are pushed to retreat, with Bernie being the last one standing. The defeated Steiner soon urges Bernie to stand down and surrender. Steiner's survival and Chris demand for Bernie to surrender averts his death, and Chris later reveals that the nuke targeting the colony had been intercepted successfully and the danger was gone.
