The EB-06/tc2 Ryusei-Go II (Graze Custom II) was an improved version of the EB-06/tc Graze Custom, which itself was cobbled together by Tekkadan engineers from the parts of two Gjallarhorn EB-06 Graze Standard Types. The Graze Custom II incorporated Teiwaz technology and added the Alaya-Vijnana System for pilot Norba Shino to interface with. It was also painted in his preferred garish magenta, and he nicknamed the suit Ryusei-Go II. The Ryusei-Go II’s armaments included the 120mm caliber rifle, a short rifle and a 9.8m battle axe. The Ryusei-Go II served as Shino’s personal mobile suit until it was heavily damaged in battle at Edmonton against Ein Dalton’s EB-AX2 Graze Ein. Later on, Shino upgraded to the new STH-16/tc Shiden Custom, which, in keeping with tradition, Shino nicknamed Ryusei-Go III.
