Technical and Historical Notes

 

he 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.

 

Michael Trinity's GNW-002 Gundam Throne Zwei serves as Team Trinity's vanguard during combat. The GN Buster Sword stores high density GN particles in the central compartment, which can be released when the front half of the sword blade slides outward. The sword has the characteristics of both a physical sword and a beam sword. Through the GN particle's weight/mass manipulation ability, the sword's weight can be increased when it hits the enemy, dealing greater damage. The GN Handgun is mounted on the left arm so as not to hinder the use of the sword. Its firepower is weaker than the Gundams' beam rifles. Despite having eight GN Fangs, the suit normally uses six; only in emergencies are all the Fangs deployed. Thanks to the GN Fangs, the suit can engage multiple targets at once. Normal pilots find it hard to defend against attacks from the GN fangs as they move at a high speed and can attack from various directions. The GN Beam Sabers are more destructive than other Gundams' sabers due to their larger size.

 

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 and seizes the Throne Zwei, which he then uses in combat to destroy Johann Trinity's GNW-001 Gundam Throne Eins. Ali uses the captured Throne Zwei during the UN's attack in space on Celestial Being. Ali deals heavy damage to Lockon Stratos' GN-002 Gundam Dynames and kills him, but Lockon manages to damage the Throne Zwei and seriously injure Ali. By 2312, Ali has upgraded to the newer GNW-20000 Arche Gundam.
