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-35 Gundam Marchosias was named after the demon Marquis Marchosias.

The Gundam Marchosias’ service record during the Calamity War, including its pilot, were unknown. It was not one of the 26 Gundams known to still exist as of P.D. 323. The Gundam Marchosias was equipped with binders on its shoulders and waist that each mounted a sub-arm. Each sub-arm was capable of wielding a short sword. The waist binders each mounted a railgun, and the armor on the arms could function as knuckle guards/claws. The Gundam Marchosias’ main melee weapon was a large long sword, which could double as a bastard mace when combined with its scabbard. The large long sword was designed to pierce the nanolaminate armor used by the mobile armors that terrorized humanity during the Calamity War. In P.D. 323, the Gundam Marchosias, having been heavily modified into the Gundam Hajiroboshi, was activated after being dormant for years in the Radonitsa Colony orbiting Venus.
