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-71 Gundam Dantalion was named after the demon Duke Dantalion. The Gundam Dantalion was one of the last Gundams fielded during the Calamity War, as its design underwent multiple changes based on combat data from Gjallarhorn’s other Gundams. Despite its late introduction into the war, the Gundam Dantalion achieved notable combat results, and Gjallarhorn allowed the family that owned it to use the name Zalmfort. After the Calamity War ended, the Gundam remained in the possession of the Zalmfort family for over three hundred years until it was stolen by Zaza Fossil (aka Zadiel Zalmfort). The Gundam Dantalion could take multiple forms, starting with the light armor naked form for combat in colonies or on the ground. This form was armed with a 100mm bayonet rifle that also doubled as a sword. The Gundam Dantalion could also mount a T-Booster backpack that could transform into armor for the upper body, as well as a B-Booster that could transform into armor for the lower body. These two boosters could be equipped separately or together in multiple configurations, known as Half Cowl, Full Cowl and Perfect Cowl. The Gundam Dantalion’s other armaments included gigantic arms, an Aegis shield mounting two autocannons, a Keraunos smoothbore gun and a bident spear.
