The Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty, abbreviated as ZAFT, is the military of the PLANT colonies and seeks to gain their independence and ensure their supremacy over Naturals. They are one of the two main antagonistic factions of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, alongside Blue Cosmos.
ZAFT was originally the Zodiac Alliance, an organization created by Patrick Zala and Siegel Clyne to peacefully fight for the rights and independence of Coordinators, who faced discrimination from the Earth Alliance. However, as the ZAFT was later reorganized by Zala into a militaristic organization comprised of civilian volunteers to serve as the official military force of the PLANT colonies
After an attack occurred on the lunar City Copernicus that wiped out the United Nations leadership, ZAFT was held responsible and a war erupted between the Earth Alliance and the PLANT colonies. During this conflict, Patrick Zala rose to power within PLANT, taking control of both the PLANT Supreme Council and ZAFT, and sought to wipe out all the "Naturals" on Earth, seeing the Coordinators as the superior race.
