A Tribute to Flay Allster


Flay (Fllay) Allster was an extremely polarizing character from the Gundam SEED series, and viewers of the show either loved her or reviled her greatly.

She was the daughter of an important diplomat, pretty, popular, and was basically representative of the societal elite. The main protagonist of show, Kira, clearly has a crush on her when we first see them together in episode one. Although I took their interactions for granted the first time I watched the show, in consequent viewings it became clear to me their relationship with each other was the pivotal development in the series.

The first transformation of her character occurs after witnessing the death of her father. She becomes hateful and manipulative, and to many of her detractors, annoying and spiteful. At this point in the story, Kira is reeling from the responsibilities of being the ace Gundam pilot, reflecting on his failures and lack of power to save everyone. He begins to rely on Flay for mental support, and she in turn, seemingly takes advantage of him.



True, Flay was using Kira as an instrument of revenge, but I think she equally relied on Kira for emotional support as well. Beyond her angry outbursts and seductive meddling, the experiences of the war also caused great confusion and insecurity for her. She just didn't realize it herself ... but by the time she did, their relationship had already begun degrading. By now, the audience is so enraged at her that they either overlook or miss - or flat out deny - the second transformation of her character. She seeks redemption and forgiveness, but Kira, like the audience, begins to brush off her advances. Only when we see her later actions, her frantic actions to try to end the war, and her final fate do we (and Kira) realize what fools we were.

*Warning: video contains spoilers*


Flay x Kira rank as one of my favorite pairings in any series - the emotions shared between the two them seem to shine through in this animated medium.

  18. Well said Ken...
    I think if you analyze deeply.. you can watch the transformation in Flay
    (which is annoying... typical character of diplomat/elite's child)
    In the end, I feel sorry for her...
