Karen Joshua (カレン・ジョシュア Karen Joshua?) is a character from the anime, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team. Mami Koyama is the Japanese seiyū and Debra Jean Rogers was the English voice under the alias of Debbie Derosa.


The 08th MS Teams’s tough, abrasive second-in-command and NCO, who was rumored to be the cause of her previous team commander’s nervous breakdown. The team’s longest-serving mobile suit pilot, Karen is initially underwhelmed by her new commanding officer Shiro Amada. As a former medical student, and the widow of a military doctor, Karen can double as a field medic in cases of emergency. She was addressed as Socho and thus held the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer.

During a patrol, the head of her Gundam was decapitated in combat against a MSM-04 Acguy. Due to a lack of spare parts, the head was replaced with that of a GM, resulting in the nickname of “GM Head”, much to Karen’s chagrin.
