Admiral Jamitov Hymem is the leader of the Earth Federation's counter-insurgent organization Titans and the central antagonist of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, serving as the main antagonist of its first half. He is an Earth Federation politician who plans to use the Titans as a private army to further his own scheme for world domination.
He also appears as the overarching antagonist of Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory OVA that serves as a prequel to Zeta Gundam, where he exploits the attacks of the Delaz Fleet in order to gain backing to form the Titans.
He is voiced by Tomomichi Nishimura. In the English dub of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, he is voiced by Steve Olson. In the English dub of Stardust Memory, he is voiced by Dave Mallow.
Jamitov first appeared when he met with Bask Om on Gryps to discuss the AEUG attack on Jaburo and the fortification of Gryps. In order to help him maintain control, he summons Paptimus Scirocco, a powerful Newtype known as "the man from Jupiter." Although Scirrocco pledged his loyalty by signing a contract with his own blood, Jamitov and Bask still have misgivings about bringing him on.
At the first meeting in Dakar, Jamitov deviously arranges the assassination of AEUG leader Blex Forer allowing him to convince the Federation Council to hand over full control of the Federation Forces to the Titans. He later appears at the Titans headquarters in Kilimanjaro right when it is under attack by the AEUG and Karaba. Jamitov personally observes an experiment where they try to determine if Cyber-Newtype Four Murasame can use the Psycho Gundam to its full potential, but the psycho waves prove too much for her, which he finds very disappointing. Sensing Four's pain, Kamille wanders deeper and deeper into the base with Char Aznable close behind. They run into Jamitov and Char quickly tries dispatching him in order to avenge Commodore Blex, but Jamitov escapes saying that he overestimated Char. Although the AEUG and Karaba eventually overwhelm the Titans and destroy their base, Jamitov successfully launches back out into space.
Later at the Gate of Zedan, Jamitov prepares to meet with Haman Karn, the leader of Axis Zeon. He discusses this meeting with Jerid Messa and entrusts him with a device to use in the event that Haman tries to pull off any stunts. When they meet, Haman tells Jamitov that as they speak the Axis asteroid is headed on a collision course with the Gate of Zedan. Jamitov asks what she wants and Haman boldly admits that the only thing she came for was his life. Jerid tries to shoot her with the device that Jamitov gave him, but Haman dodges the shot and grabs hold of her earring, saying that it is filled with enough cyanide to kill every person in the room. As she leaves, Haman releases the gas but Jerid seals himself and Jamitov in a secret compartment to avoid it. Later the Axis asteroid does indeed collide with the Gate of Zedan, but not before Jamitov and Bask evacuate with most of their forces intact.
In his last appearance, Jamitov attends a conference with Haman and Scirocco. He reprimands Scirocco for failing to show up at the Gate of Zedan when it was being destroyed, but doesn't go any further than that, even though he still doesn't trust Scirocco. During the conference, Scirocco says he agrees with Haman about how people "whose souls are weighed down by Earth's gravity" are hardly fit to lead in outer space, irking Jamitov despite his claims of loyalty. Scirocco pulls a gun on Haman, but Char shoots him first, grazing his arm. Sensing the danger, Sarah Zabiarov blasts through the conference room with her Bolinoak Sammahn, sending everything into disarray. Jamitov and Scirocco are the only two people left in the remains of the conference room. Scirocco confidently takes this opportunity to kill Jamitov and blame Haman for it.
- In many respects, Jamitov Hymem is similar to Gihren Zabi from Mobile Suit Gundam, the first installment of the Gundam Universal Century (U.C.) continuity. This is because both of them are the main antagonists of their respective anime series, both of them are tyrants working for a group founded under a noble cause that eventually is corrupted, and both of them are killed by one of their henchmen towards the end of the series because their ambition is too much for both of them to handle. In addition, both of their traitorous henchmen participate in the final battle, while they do not, because they die before the heroes can battle them.
- While Jamitov's true motives are never revealed in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, several side materials point to Jamitov actually being pro-Spacenoid and using the oppressive Titans as a way to stir up civil war and trigger the collapse of the Earth Federation, leading to a migration into space with him in charge. This would further explain his repeated attempts to ally with Haman Karn and Axis Zeon, as he shared similar goals with the Zeon cause.
