Admiral Souther is an Admiral in the United Nations Navy.
He is reticent to commit troops to any maneuvers that would be deemed as an escalation especially under circumstances where it is in retaliation to any acts for whom the culprits have not been verified.
Throughout the seriesEdit
He was formerly in command of UN Fleet Command but, in "Doors & Corners", after the MCRN Scirocco destroyed Phoebe Station, he resigned his post. The UN Security Council wanted to respond to what it considered provocation when Phoebe was destroyed. Mars' moon Deimos was elected target. He was forced out for refusing to follow the order. He is currently assigned as commander of the UN Jupiter Fleet.
