Team Trinity (チーム・トリニティ), also referred as Trinity Siblings or Gundam Throne Meisters, were a fictional group featured in the Japanese anime series Mobile Suit Gundam 00. They first appeared in episode 16. Consisting of three siblings, their surname refers to the Christian doctrine, stating that God is one Being Who exists, simultaneously and eternally, as a mutual indwelling of three persons.
Trinity Siblings/Throne Meisters
During their first season appearance, Trinity is shown to take orders from Laguna Harvey, a traitor to Celestial Being and a leading figure in the transportation industry. They have their own mission objectives beyond the knowledge of the majority of other members of the organization (such as the crew of the Ptolemaios). They take an active role in military intervention, independent of the original Gundam Meisters' objectives and Veda (as noted by Tieria Erde, they did not previously exist in Veda's database).
Their Earth base is located in the mountains of Africa. They also possess their own Mothership. Their missions entail total annihilation of military bases leaving no survivors, not even civilians. All three siblings are implied to be created for the sole purpose of becoming Gundam Meisters.
Their missions and actions had been called into question on numerous occasions by both the world and members of Celestial Being itself. Eventually, Trinity began to play a more antagonistic role, rising to its climax when Setsuna F Seiei, enraged by their complete disregard for human lives, engaged the Throne Meisters in combat. He was shortly joined by Tieria Erde and Lockon Stratos, who helped him partake in the battle of Gundam vs. Gundam. Tieria attempted to bring down the Throne Gundams using the armour-purged GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh's Trial System, yet was intercepted by Ribbons Almark's hacking of Veda. The siblings eventually retreated, but not before revealing Setsuna's true identity to his fellow Meisters.
As a result of the lack of TD blankets in the Thrones' GN Drive, the weapons used by their Gundams possess a side-effect apparently not present in the primary group's, producing a type of radiation that damages human stem cells, precluding the use of regenerative medicine, as shown by Louise Halevy's inability to regrow her amputated hand after Nena's attack on her cousin's wedding. These "counterfeit" GN Drives, also known as Tau drives, require charging as they do not have the capability of producing unlimited energy like the original GN drives.
Shortly after their defeat, Wang Liu Mei arrives at the Trinity Mothership with Hong Long in tow and offers her services to Trinity. Johann politely accepts her support, noting that assistance from another party within Celestial Being may eventually come in handy.
Later on, the Trinity siblings are confused by Laguna's lack of mission orders, oblivious to the fact that he had been murdered by Ali Al-Saachez. After UN forces discover their hidden African base, the trio are forced to flee into hiding, where Johann and Michael are found and killed. Nena is shown to be alive and working with Wang Liu Mei after the four-year timeskip at the end of Season One.
After the deaths of Johann and Michael, Nena was the only Throne Meister left and she took refuge under Wang Liu Mei. She has since served Wang Liu Mei as a investigator to help Celestial Being in intelligence.
