Milliardo Peacecraft (ミリアルド・ピースクラフト), also known as Zechs Merquise (ゼクス・マーキス), is a central character and antagonist in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. He serves as Heero Yuy's rival.
In his Original mode, he teams up with Domon and Puru. His first conflict takes place in the ancient ruins where, he and his allies take an early offensive and confront Haman and Kamille. During the second battle, he faces Char, who shares remarkable similarities with him. Eventually, Milliardo and company subdue all resistance. Musha Gundam then declares the mysterious planet shall fall to Earth. Falling into despair, they struggle to fight though the Titans in their path. When Heero appears, Milliardo regains his composure. With his rival, they join forces to destroy Musha Gundam. With the mecha down, the two rivals head for the orbital station to duel. Their battle is interrupted by the remnant Titans, Haman and Char. With Amuro and Judau's help, Milliardo and Puru manage to repulse them. When the fighting subsides, Heero reappears to settle their fight once and for all. In this case, Milliardo emerges victorious and returns to Earth. He says farewell to his new friends.
In Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, Milliardo learns the nature of Newtype technology, specifically funnels. Deeming the psychically controlled laser weapons uncivil for war, he resolves to defeat all funnel users (including Kira who uses the similar DRAGOON system). During his final battle, he challenges several Newtypes at once. As he struggles, Heero appears to assist him against their final confrontation with Amuro and Char. Completing his story unlocks the Terminal Event for his Zechs Merquise disguise.
During Mission Mode, the player has a random chance of seeing a CPU Heero and Milliadro work together. One of the two pilots first comes into the battlefield alone. When they experience trouble, the rival will appear to assist. Each state their rescue is solely motivated for Relena's sake. The player may decide whether to allow their rendezvous or to shoot down the weakened pilot. Milliadro, Domon, and Puru can be confronted in the "Remember the Past" missions by any character, providing their relations with that character is at least Trust level.
In Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn, he serves as a major antagonist in the Fire of Axis story, using the Axis asteroid to try and plunge the Earth into an ice age.
Milliardo is a chivalrous fighter who loves to face his opponents one-on-one in a duel, which plays to the strengths of his Epyon. He cares deeply for Relena and his willing to put aside his rivalry with Heero simply for her sake, as demonstrated in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2. Like Treize, he always seeks the most chivalrous path in battle and is opposed to weapons such as Mobile Dolls or Funnels, thinking them "unchivalrous".
