Technical and Historical Notes

After studying data obtained from the Bahamut computer, Megazone 23’s military created several transformable maneuver slaves, including the Hargan and the more advanced Garland. The Garland was stolen by its test pilot and fell into the hands of motorcycle enthusiast Shogo Yahagi. After a battle against BD’s Hargan, an injured Shogo was forced to abandon the Garland. The Garland was reclaimed by the military, which repaired and re-designated it as the GR-00X Prototype Garland. The military used the Prototype Garland to lure Shogo into a trap, but Shogo was able to steal it once more thanks to assistance from the biker gang Trash. Trash was pursued by the military while attempting to reach Bahamut, and Shogo traded places with Trash leader Lightning. The Prototype Garland’s maneuver slave mode was heavily damaged in a duel with Yuichiro Shiratori’s Tal-052-H-O Wilde Sau, but it survived and was brought down to Earth in Megazone 23’s escape capsule. The Prototype Garland remained dormant for the next five centuries, until it was rediscovered by the new operator of 7G, Eiji Takanaka. Amazingly, the Prototype Garland still had power and contained a data unit left behind by Shogo.
