About Duo Maxwell
Duo Maxwell is a Gundam pilot in Operation Meteor. He was taken off the streets at an early age and grew up in a church orphanage. Duo was happy as he gained a close relationship with the people who ran the church. His time at the orphanage was cut short when rebels showed up and destroyed the place. The church was caught in a crossfire between the rebels and the United Earth Sphere Alliance. He suffered deep pain as one of the orphanage’s caretakers died in his arms. This anguish and pain stayed with him throughout the series.
Each Gundam Wing pilot has a specialty, and Duo’s happens to be stealth and assassination. He is at his best with Mobile Suits that focus on close-ranged attacks. As a pilot, he is also extremely adept at evading and other non-combative piloting techniques. Duo sees his machine Deathscythe as a living being and treats it like a friend. Duo, being skilled in computer work and communications, enjoys creating new tech by tinkering and playing with scraps of metal and old computer bits.
