Designed and built by OZ leader Treize Khushrenada during the political and military chaos occurring in AC 195, the OZ-13MS Gundam Epyon was intended to be the physical manifestation of Treize’s martial ideals. Based on combat data acquired on the Gundams fighting OZ and the Romefeller Foundation, the Gundam Epyon (“epyon” is Greek for “next”) was intended to be the perfect weapon for Treize’s envisioned perfect soldier. Rather than incorporating ranged weapons used by “cowardly” soldiers with no warrior’s sense of fulfillment, Treize armed the Epyon with only two weapons: a razor-sharp, retractable tentacle heat rod – effective for both grappling and slicing enemies at high speed – and a large beam sword, connected directly to the mobile suit’s generator via a power cable. In addition to these melee weapons, the Epyon could transform into a mobile armor mode for atmospheric flight and added speed and mobility. These “duelist’s” weapons were the only ones a “true” soldier would needed, and Treize, seeing the personal philosophies he lived by embodied in the Gundam pilots, waited until the day he could give his perfect weapon to one of these perfect soldiers.

That day came when Treize – having withdrawn his support for the Romefeller Foundation’s new direction of purpose – was under siege in his Luxembourg headquarters by Romefeller loyalists attempting to take out Treize and his proud supporters. Gundam pilot Heero Yuy arrived on the scene, and his meeting with Treize ended in Heero’s acquiring the Gundam Epyon for his personal use. To Heero’s surprise, the Epyon incorporated a dangerous cockpit system similar to that of the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero – one that interfaced directly with the pilot’s mind, eliminating all doubts and fears and providing its pilot with unquestionable knowledge of his enemies and the ability to achieve total victory. Heero, having already had this disturbing experience with the Wing Zero, quickly mastered this new Gundam’s Epyon System, though he later ended up trading mobile suits with former OZ pilot Zechs Merquise, who had just recently acquired the Wing Zero himself. Zechs kept the Gundam Epyon for the remainder of the fighting occurring that year, leading his own soulless mobile doll “troops” on the front lines against Treize’s World Nation and the Gundam pilots during the Eve Wars. After a final battle with Wing Zero, the Epyon was presumed destroyed while disabling the reactor of the battleship Libra, but Zechs survived.
