Final Appearance: Episode
38 - "The Space Runaway"
Gije served personally under Doba
Ajiba, and was entrusted (along with Damido
Pechi) with ensuring the safety of his daughter Karala
during the research visit to Logo Dau. He clearly had feelings for her
(though they don't seem to have been reciprocated) and after she was taken
onboard the Solo
Ship made several rescue attempts, seemingly oblivious to Damido's
attempts to get him out of the way. Eventually Gije realised Karala didn't
want to be rescued, and after Abadede's
death the newly-arrived Harulu
withdrew him from the theatre, instead sending him on a research mission
to Logo Dau while she took over the pursuit of the Solo Ship.
there, Gije discovered Donovan particles which he hoped would inhibit
After some initial success, the robot soon adapted to these, and Gije
was left defeated once more. Harulu dismissed him from the front line,
but Daram knew a good pilot
when he saw one, and recruited Gije for the Ome Foundation. Gije once
more tried to destroy the Ideon, and once more failed at every attempt.
By the time of the battle over Earth's moon, Daram ran out of patience,
and abandoned him when his Galbo
Jick was destroyed.
was something of a turning point for Gije. He sneaked onboard the Solo
Ship after saving Sheryl,
and became obsessed with seeing an invocation of the Ide. He remained
onboard in secret until Daram's desperate suicide plan drew him out of
cover, and Gije killed his erstwhile superior. He was immediately imprisoned
by the colonists for his previous actions against them. Shortly afterwards,
was killed in battle and, after much lobbying with Sheryl, Gije was given
control of the Ideo-Nova.
His first mission was a little awkward, as Lotta
was assigned to point a gun at him the whole time - it was also probably
a bit too soon to fool his former comrades by pretending to be a spy among
the colonists, but Gije's piloting skills greatly improved the effectiveness
of the Ideon units.
his good motives became apparent, he developed a romance with Sheryl and
was rapidly accepted by the rest of the crew. For his part, Gije became
more relaxed in the informal society onboard the ship, and it would seem
to be one of the happiest parts of his life. However, after Sheryl's sister
killed on Ajian, he seemed unable to cope with her grief. Shortly afterwards
he was fatally wounded piloting the Ideo-Nova on Star Steckin, having
left himself exposed saving Kasha.
spirit was immediately reunited with that of Sheryl after her death.
should be noted that Gije suffers more than any other character
if you're watching the films alone - early on he's a fairly generic
bad guy who has a very sudden change of heart, with the colonists
similarly quick to accept him. To cap if all off, his death is covered
in the start titles of "Be Invoked".
