Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Gundam Throne mobile suits piloted by the Trinity siblings are variations of the same basic design. Constructed in secret by Alejandro Corner, they are part of his plan to seize control of Celestial Being for himself. The Thrones are powered by GN Drive Taus, which are based on data gathered from Jupiter but lack the special core component of the original GN Drives. As a result, the GN Drive Taus cannot operate perpetually and must consume electricity to convert to GN particles. The drive's protruding block serves as its starter mechanism. Unlike the original GN Drives, the GN particles of the GN Drive Tau are toxic when used for beam weaponry or in some special states, and this is related to the particle compression rate used. To reduce weight, the Throne series' GN Drive Tau is incorporated into the suits' frame, and as such they have a different look from the other Gundams. In addition, they also do not use cords for transporting GN particles around the suit. Instead, the GN particles are capable of flowing through the suit's frame.

 

Johann Trinity's GNW-001 Gundam Throne Eins features an enhanced communication system in its head and serves as the team's command unit. Its armaments include a GN Beam Rifle, which can combine with the GN Launcher. The GN Beam Sabers are more destructive than other Gundams' sabers due to their larger size. The GN Shield can generate a GN field on its surface, which consumes GN particles in use and reduces particle supply to other weapons. The GN Launcher can fire in both its folded and unfolded states. When docked with a second Gundam Throne, it becomes the more powerful GN Mega Launcher. Docking with a third Throne creates the still more powerful GN High Mega Launcher.

 

The Gundam Thrones make their combat debut in 2308 when they rescue the original five Gundam Meisters from a trap sprung by the world's three superpower blocs. Afterward, the Trinity siblings engage in more brutal armed interventions, to the annoyance of the original Meisters. Eventually, the two Meister groups come into conflict until Corner seizes control of Celestial Being's quantum computer Veda. After Corner determines that the Trinitys have served their purpose, he sends his operative Ali al-Saachez to dispose of them. Posing as an ally, Ali kills Michael Trinity and seizes his GNW-002 Gundam Throne Zwei, which he then uses in combat to kill Johann.
