Rigardo Mabuse, also known by the codename Lantern, is a Gundam Meister and one of the primary characters of the Gundam 00 Roleplay on the Regalia Realms website. He pilots the GN-002 Gundam Zakura.
Male, 1.9m tall, 90kg. Well-built. He wears a dark magenta pilot suit on duty, and dresses casually otherwise, in tracksuit bottoms, a vest, and a dark grey hooded sweatshirt. He has very short hair of a dark ginger colour and blue eyes. He carries a light blue coloured Haro robot around with him.
He acts cocky and gung-ho but in reality is serious about eradicating war. He considers it acceptable to use any methods necessary to bring this about. He has no problem using lethal force.
A former Union pilot who grew depressed at the constant fighting in the world. His family were killed in a retaliation attack by one of the Middle Eastern independent states. This led to him coming to believe that war would lead to humanity’s destruction. As soon as he was allowed back on duty, he took his mobile suit and tried to stop both sides fighting. Celestial Being saved him from imprisonment after that.
- Lantern is intended to resemble Green Lantern character Guy Gardner.
