Throughout the course of history, the world managed to forget the existence of a small old colony in the general area of Side 3. Over time, the people of Moon Moon abandoned technology and reverted to a more primitive state. They allowed forests to overgrow and built pyramids in the style of the ancient Aztecs and Mayans from Earth. The people of Moon Moon believed in the creed of the Light, which involved living in harmony with the Moonlight to attain peace. Though they abandoned use of technology, the machines themselves still existed. One such machine was the giant mobile worker Catol, which was worshipped by the people as a god. In UC 0088, a battle broke out between the crews of the AEUG’s Argama and Neo Zeon’s Endra within the colony, and Mondo Agake and Rasara Moon reactivated the ancient Catol to demonstrate that it was only a machine. Despite the Catol’s age, Mondo was able to destroy several of the Endra‘s AMX-003 Gaza-C units on his own during the battle.
