Morgan Chevalier (モーガン・シュバリエ Mōgan Shubarie ) is a fictional character from the Japanese science fiction manga series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray. He is an ace pilot for the Earth Alliance's Eurasian Federation, like space combat ace Edward Harrelson, underwater ace Jane Houston, mobile suit instructor-turned ace Rena Imelia and fellow countryman Canard Pars. He earned the nickname of "Mad Dog under the Moonlight" because he specializes in space operations, and "Mad Dog" because he seemingly fights recklessly on the battlefield, though he is actually calm, calculating and a brilliant strategist who leads his squad to many victories.
Gundam SEED Astray
Before the introduction of mobile suits into the Earth Alliance, Chevalier was a 48 year old commander of the Linear tank Fleet in the Eurasian Federation. He started to study Mobile Suits after a handful of them under Andrew Waltfeld's command nearly destroyed his entire squad. The first mobile suit he piloted was a GAT-01 Strike Dagger, and he became an ace quickly.
Later on, Morgan piloted a rare GAT-01A1 Dagger (a.k.a. "105 Dagger") mobile suit equipped with an equally rare AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Striker pack, indicating that he had a high spatial awareness, like Mu La Flaga, Prayer Reverie, and Rau Le Creuset; he used his abilities quite effectively. It was believed that Morgan fought at the Second Battle of Jachin Due and died in that battle, as there was only one Gunbarrel Dagger that participated, and it was subsequently lost. However, Morgan did indeed survive, as he appears in the side-story Gundam SEED Destiny Astray, which takes place between Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny.
Gundam SEED X Astray
Morgan Chevalier appears in this manga to stop Canard Pars, who had stolen a Neutron Jammer Canceller from the Ptolemaeus Lunar base. In their confrontation he pilots the Gunbarrel 105 Dagger and fights against Canard in his CAT1-X1/3 Hyperion Unit 1. Despite his talent he is defeated by Canard but survives because Prayer Reverie warns him with his spatial awareness abilities.
Gundam SEED MSV
A manga about a side character from Gundam SEED Destiny named Heine Westenfluss actually revealed that Morgan's 105 Dagger was heavily damaged in the Second Battle of Jachin Due; Morgan had fought Westenfluss in his YFX-600R GuAIZ Experimental Firearms Type. Morgan was able to shoot off the GuAIZ's right leg and destroyed its beam rifle; Westenfluss, on the other hand, was able to destroy the left arm of Morgan's 105 Dagger, as well as two of its gunbarrels. The duel was undecided, as it was interrupted by the firing of GENESIS. Morgan's 105 Dagger was heavy damaged, but it is unknown whether Westenfluss or the GENESIS beam was the culprit; Morgan himself survived nearly unscratched, and it is possible that he could have won the fight if GENESIS had not fired, as he had his remaining gunbarrels and his beam rifle aimed at Westenfluss, while his opponent only had his beam sabers left.
Gundam SEED Destiny Astray
Morgan was one of the aces sent to take down Edward Harrelson, who had gone AWOL and was wanted for treason. Morgan leaked out false information about a missile attack on the continent of South America to lure Edward into space so he could stop the attack by dropping into the base quickly. In space, Morgan was able to utilize his gunbarrels to fight Edward and defeated his GAT-333 Raider Full Spec; however, Edward managed to escape by riding a wave to Earth, similar to how Lowe Guele did.
Morgan also appears in Gundam SEED Destiny Astray, piloting a TS-MA4F Exus and attempting to help ZAFT's Riika Sheder defeat the RGX-04 Proto-Saviour, stolen by Circus pilot Ile De Lloar. It is questionable if later, in early C.E. 74, during the ZAFT/Alliance attack on LOGOS's "Heaven's Base" in Iceland, Chevalier led a squad of 105 Daggers in the attack. Morgan joined Terminal with help from Jean Carrey, alongside Riika, and Edward.
In SD Gundam G Generation series and Gundam Wars card game, due to a more user friendly setting, he is listed as a Newtype instead of a different ability of spatial awareness. However, this is not the official story settings. He also appears as an enemy in Super Robot Wars W, and is also briefly playable in one mission.
- Morgan Chevalier was voiced by Toru Ohkawa in the video game Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny: Generation of CE. Ohkawa is also the voice of Uzumi Nara Athha.
