After coming into the possession of Argi Mirage, the ASW-G-29 Gundam Astaroth was restored to 82 percent of its Calamity War appearance as the Gundam Astaroth Origin. The Astaroth Origin’s shoulder armor and tail booster could be used for a high-speed flight form. Its armaments included a sledgehammer, shotgun and γ nanolaminate sword. The Astaroth Origin was stolen by Nanao Narorina and sold off on the black market in the Jupiter Sphere. It turned up half a year later, but it had once again lost most of its armor and equipment. Parts were once more cobbled together from other suits to reequip it as the Astaroth Rinascimento.
