From The Sanq Kingdom, Earth
Ethnic Origin: European
Class: Leader of Sanq Kingdom
Relena is the princess of the fallen Sanq Kingdom. The royal family was
deeply committed to total pacifism. The Federation saw their ideals as a
threat and invaded the country. Her parents were murdered and the kingdom
Relena was spirited to safety by the man she knew as her father, Prime
Minister Dorlin. The Dorlin's adopted Relena and raised her as their own
child, never telling her her true identity out of fear the Alliance would
hunt her down.
She enjoyed the status of a privileged child, attending many of the finest
schools. She often traveled with her parents, even to the colonies as Dorlin
sought to bring peace between earth and space. It was his commitment to
peace that would end Dorlin's life. He was targeted by Oz and assassinated.
As he lay dying, he told Relena the secret that he had kept for so many
years. She was the daughter of King Peacecraft of the Sanq Kingdom.
When Relena discovers her true identity, she becomes Relena Peacecraft and
returns to the Sanq Kingdom. Using the guide of the former monarchy, Relena
restores the Sanq Kingdom to its pacifist nation status. Finding herself in
direct opposition to Oz, Relena becomes a target herself.
Much to her surprise she rediscovers her brother Millardo, but only to be
put on opposite sides of the war.
Relena holds firm to her beliefs in pacifism and demilitarization. She
openly advocates peace in the parliament and even goes as far as to hide the
Gundam pilots within the Sanq kingdom.
