Athrun Zala is the deuteragonist of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. He and Kira were once childhood friends, but when war broke out, he joined ZAFT. While stealing the Aegis Gundam, he found Kira fighting for the Earth Alliance. As the two clashed with one another numerous times, Athrun would eventually question the underlying values and purposes of war, making him desert his father. He would then join the Archangel and use the Justice Gundam to help Kira end the war against Rau Le Creuset.
Years after, Athrun went under the name Alex Dino and became a bodyguard for Cagalli Yula Athha. Caught in a raid on Armory One, the two escaped on the new Minerva battleship. Athrun spent much time with the Minerva crew, re-enlisting in ZAFT, but soon stayed true to his convictions and left. Fighting alongside Kira using the Infinite Justice Gundam, he cripples Shinn Asuka's Destiny Gundam in the final battle.
In Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, Athrun's Story Mission begins with him helping the Titans fighting a three-way battle against Neo Zeon and the AEUG. In his second chapter, he fights against squads while protecting Shinn then faces with Kira. His third chapter takes Athrun to A Baoa Qu where he defends against two opposing forces and Kira once again. In his fourth chapter at the Fortress Towns, Scirocco appears to accept Athrun's antiwar methods. In Athrun's final story mission, he tries to convince a number of Mobile Suit pilots that they are being pawns for war. He also learns Seabook wants the war to stop. Athrun then has one final duel with Kira. In the aftermath, Athrun learns there is another way to end the war.
