Haman Karn (ハマーン カーン)The leader of the renegade Zeons who took refuge at the asteroid base Axis. As the daughter of the admiral who led the exodus to Axis, Haman took over her late father's role, and at age sixteen found herself in charge of this community of dispirited Zeon exiles. Despite her youth, Haman's charisma, guile, and remarkable Newtype abilities enabled her to rally the Axis refugees for their triumphant return to the Earth Sphere. While nominally just a regent to the child heir Mineva Zabi, Haman is in truth the unchallenged master of the Axis forces, who seeks to restore the Zabi dynasty in order to seize power for herself.
