The Gundam pilot we know as Trowa Barton is not the "real" Trowa. The real
Trowa was the son of Dekim Barton, head of the Barton Foundation. The Barton
Foundation was to play a leading role in Operation Meteor.
The Trowa we know went by the name of Nanashi, or no name. Separated from
his family as an infant, Nanashi was found by mercenaries. He was raised up
in the guerrilla army. It wasn't long before he was fighting beside them in
a mobile suite. From the beginnings of his childhood, Nanashi was brought up
to be a soldier.
Some of the revolutionaries worked for the Barton Foundation constructing
mobile suites for Operation Meteor. Nanashi was one of these mechanics. He
worked with Doctor S in the construction of the Gundam Heavyarms.
Nanashi was present when the "real" Trowa Barton was murdered. He stepped
from the shadows and offered to take on Trowa's identity as his own. Nanashi
said that he had become quite fond of the Heavyarms and that he would pilot
it if Doctor S would allow it. With Trowa dead and no one to pilot the
suite, Doctor S agreed. He hinted to the young man not to follow the orders
of the Barton Foundation and let him take Heavyarms to earth.
Trowa hides himself in a traveling circus troop, unaware that his real
family was circus performers. Agile and fearless he blends right in. Trowa
seems by far the quietist and most detached of the Gundam pilots, but
beneath his cool facade lies a brilliant soldier.
