Gundam 00: Setsuna Seiei

Setsuna F Seiei is the main protagonist in the Gundam series, Mobile Suit Gundam 00. His real name is Soran Ibrahim. He is the pilot of the GN-001 Gundam Exia and the GN-0000 00 Gundam.

The name Setsuna F Seiei is a codename used by Setsuna mainly for missions. He originally gives Marina Ismail the name Kamal Majirif, in episode 8, when they first meet. However when he reveals his position as a Gundam Meister to her, he gives her his code name. He uses his codename in Japan, he introduced himself to Saji Crossroad as Setsuna F. Seiei.

Setsuna’s real name was thought to be Soran Ibrahim, since in episode 7, in a flashback, a woman believed to be his mother called him by that name just before he shot her. Later in episode 19 his true name was confirmed to be Soran Ibrahim, by Johann Trinity before Team Trinity retreat from the battle against Exia, Virtue/Nadleeh and Dynames. The name Soran Ibrahim may be a reference to Soran Ebrahim, a Kurdish actor who had a part in the movie Turtles Can Fly which is about orphans in a war torn Kurdistan.
