In September AC 195, Treize Khushrenada resigns from his position as head of OZ to protest the Romefeller Foundation's development of mobile dolls. Fearing the influence that the charismatic Treize would have on their soldiers, Romefeller places him under house arrest in his Luxembourg mansion. While there, Treize uses data taken from the OZ-00MS Tallgeese and the five rebel Gundams to produce the OZ-13MS Gundam Epyon, the realization of his "gentleman soldier" ideal. Though Epyon makes its mark on history as the personal mobile suit of White Fang's Milliardo Peacecraft, much lesser known is the OZ-14MS Gundam Aquarius, Epyon's sister machine which Treize designs at the same time. If Epyon can be considered the embodiment of Treize's love of honorable duels, Aquarius can just as easily be considered the embodiment of his hatred for mobile dolls. Aquarius' primary purpose is the destruction of mobile dolls; to that end, its most important feature is its ability to broadcast a virus that disables the enemy identification component of the MD system. Without the ability to recognize targets and attack, the mobile dolls are helpless, making them easy pickings for either Gundam.
Given heavy armor for defense, Aquarius features powerful thrusters to let it fly in the atmosphere and keep up with Epyon; however, it has few vernier and apogee motors, resulting in its having high speed but low maneuverability. Since most of Aquarius's reactor output is concentrated in its thrusters and jamming pods, it actually lacks the ability to power beam weapons. As such, its only fixed weapons are a pair of heat rods, mounted in the forearms. For extended combat, Aquarius is intended to borrow the OZ-06MS Leo's 105mm rifle, dober gun and shield. Information on Aquarius's deployment is uncertain. By some accounts, Treize leaves his confinement before it can be built. Others say that members of the Treize Faction happen upon Aquarius's plans at the mansion and have it constructed for their own use against White Fang. This information goes on to say that though Aquarius is completed, it's not ready in time to participate in the Eve Wars and is subsequently destroyed during the great disarmament following the Mariemaia Rebellion.

Note: The Gundam Aquarius appears several times in the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 G Generation games, but most of the time it is (ironically) a mobile doll. The one time it appears with an actual pilot is one of the bonus stages in G Generation F.I.F., where Lady Une uses it as part of the inter-universal army of Gundam women who attack Paptimus Scirocco for his cruel manipulation of women. While this isn't a canon battle, it marks the only time Aquarius is given a pilot. Therefore, one could say that Lady Une was the pilot, or not, and be right on both accounts.
