History Edit

Approximately 12 years before the story of Tegami Bachi began, Gauche Suede lost part of his Heart on the Day of Flicker, when the Amberground's artificial sun turned off for a brief period of time. It is revealed in Chapter 10 by Aria Link that Gauche's sister Sylvette was born on the Day of Flicker. He'd gone to the Hill of Prayer to pray for his mother and sister when Sylvette was born. The Day of Flicker was the day when the government went out for an investigation and a modification of the man-made sun. His mother died after Sylvette was born. Subconsciously, Aria says that to fill the void in his heart left by the missing shards of his memories of his mother, he started focusing all his attention on making Sylvette happy.


Lag's rescuer, who first appears in chapter 1. He is the Letter Bee that found young Lag Seeing marked as a letter in "Coza Bel", a small town in the "Yodaka District" (the low class district in Amberground). He has to deliver Lag to "Cambel Litus", a town also on the "Yodaka District", to join his aunt who was entrusted to take care of him. Gauche is a caring and enthusiastic Letter Bee. He is trying to become the "Head Bee" (Captain of the Letter Bees) so that he'll have enough money to help his sister and live peacefully. However between the series, Gauche went missing and he reappeared in the series as Noir, a marauder. {C

In Chapter 7 it was revealed that Gauche was no longer a Letter Bee. Gauche later appears before Lag and steals the letter he is delivering. He refers to himself as a Marauder  known as Noir and appears to have no memories of Lag or being a Bee, possibly having lost that part of his heart. Later on a Marauder is explained to be a "Plunderer" who takes on the job of theft. Marauders mainly target Letter Bees to keep them from delivering their letters. When Lag shoots a shindan at Noir's old cartridges, it is revealed that Noir had been unconscious for some time, and when he woke up he was in the base of Reverse. A mysterious man had reminded him he was a man named Gauche Suede, the first person to ever survive the "light", and had supplied him an assistant  to re-inform him of his past and who he used to be. After receiving his shindanjuu Gymnopédie, the man assumed that he would have to wait to recover his heart, in order to fire heart bullets again. Surprisingly, Gauche had fired a heart bullet, which excited the man. Gauche asked the man what he should do. The man praised him as "Gauche", but Gauche told him to stop and insisted that "Gauche" didn't exist anymore. The man named him Noir, and told him that he was now his Marauder.

As Noir, he traveled and stole letters from Letter Bee's with his new dingo Roda. In volume 8, Lag, Zazie and Conner, meet Gauche again. This time, he regains Lag's memory that was shot from Lag's shindan. Then, he returned to Yuusari for recovery at the "Bee hive". Everyone was really happy about it and Gauche acted like he has received his memory back, but it was then revealed in chapter 44 that he only has his memory when he was still just Noir, a reverse marauder, however the feeling which he had about Sylvette and Lag are true and from deep within his Heart.


Sylvette Suede is Gauche's sister. She was born on the Day of Flicker.

Aria Link is the old friend of Gauche Suede, appeared to be good friends and seemed to have feelings towards one another.



His Shindanjuu was previously the Nocturne #12. When he was leaving for Akatsuki, he gave it to Sylvette, and told her to give to Lag Seeing if he came one day.When he left for Akatsuki he bought a new large caliber rotating, rapid firing revolver Shindanjuu called Gymnopédie. His Spirit Amber is black. His dingo was formerly a dog named Roda, but he subconsciously named his assistant in the Reverse after her.

Gauche's Spirit Amber attack is Kurobari(Black Needle). Later, as a Marauder, his Spirit Amber attack is Raven Black.
