Technical and Historical Notes

More than 300 years ago, Gjallarhorn created 72 Gundam Frames in an effort to fight off the existential threat of unmanned mobile armors during the Calamity War. Compared to standard mobile suits, these high performance machines each mounted two Ahab reactors. The Gundams also utilized the Alaya-Vijnana System, a man-machine interface in which plugs from the cockpit would connect to spinal cord implants protruding from the pilot’s back. This system allowed data to flow both ways between the Gundam and the pilot’s brain, and it also allowed for human-like movement. However, exceeding the system’s safety limits could permanently injure the pilot’s body. The names and model numbers of all the Gundams corresponded to the names and ranks of demons from the Lesser Key of Solomon. The ASW-G-32 Gundam Asmoday was named after the demon King Asmoday.

The Gundam Asmoday’s service record during the Calamity War, including its pilot, were unknown. It was lost after the war’s end and discovered in the Debris Zone more than 300 years later in its original condition. Due to its lack of a combat record, it is speculated that the Gundam Asmoday was not completed before the war’s end. The Gundam Asmoday’s main armament was its pair of grand tonfas mounted under its forearms. These tonfas featured explosive firing mechanisms that could be fired at close range to penetrate armor. Other armaments include a 110mm rifle, a pair of leg claws that can restrain a target, four smoke grenades and a gigant javelin that included a wired handle and could both be thrown and used as a sword. The Gundam Asmoday’s combat role was to use its rifle to restrict enemy movement, use the smoke grenades to create a distraction and move into close combat range, then use the leg claws to restrain the enemy and fire the grand tonfas.
