M'Quve oversaw a mining operation at Odessa under the direct authority of Kycilia Zabi.
When Ramba Ral's forces were engaged with the White Base, M'Quve was ordered by Dozle Zabi to send three Doms to Ramba Ral to support him. However, not wanting his mining base to be discovered, M'Quve instead told Ramba Ral that the Dom's transport was destroyed during reentry.
After his mines were repeatedly attacked by the forces of the White Base, M'Quve attempted to lure the White Base into a trap by having his men repeatedly attack them. Through his ally Elran, a Federation General who had secretly turned traitor, M'Quve attempts to thwart the advance of the Federation's Operation Odessa. However, Elran was exposed as a traitor by Amuro Ray, causing M'Quve to lose his ace in the hole. His forces pushed back, M'Quve fires a nuclear missile to destroy the Federation forces, but the safely dealt with by Amuro and his Gundam manage to safely dispose of it. With that, M'Quve retreats.
As the Battle of Solomon swung in favor of the Federation, M'Quve, after being pressured by his subordinates, allows his men to bring in the base's escape capsules containing its women and children, including Zenna and Mineva Zabi.
At Texas Colony, M'Quve executes a plan to draw the Gundam to a location he had set up with explosives. However, the Gundam manages to hold, prompting M'Quve to enter into combat himself against Amuro. Despite his best efforts, Amuro gains the upper hand and kills M'Quve.
