William Sutherland is a villain in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. He's a member of Blue Cosmos. He answers to his boss Muruta Azrael.

Natural; an officer of the Earth Alliance general staff, stationed at the Alliance's JOSH-A headquarters.


First Alliance-PLANT War:

After the Archangel arrives in Alaska, Sutherland subjects its officers to an inquiry. Sutherland's comments in the course of this hearing, which reveal own prejudice against Coordinators, provide a hint as to his real agenda to eliminate all Coordinators.

Operation Spitbreak:

At the Battle of JOSH-A, Sutherland is one of the two OMNI officers (later that other OMNI officer gets killed by GENESIS) who triggers the Cyclops System in an attempt to get rid of OMNI's less desirable forces, the moderate Eurasian Federation, the Atlantic Federation's Archangel ship (for having Kira Yamato, a Coordinator, as one of her members), and a large portion of ZAFT's fighting strength.

Second Battle of Jachin Due:

In the Second Battle of Jachin Due, Sutherland as an Admiral commands a Agamemnon-class ship, the Doolittle, which is equipped with TS-MA2 Moebius mobile armors armed with nuclear missiles


He ultimately dies when his ship, the Doolittle is destroyed by the combined efforts of Yzak Joule and Dearka Elsman at the Battle of Jachin Due.


  • He is in many ways analogous to Bask Om from the Universal Century, as both were the second in command to their respective corrupt Terran leaders.
