Following the overwhelming success of the prototype Z-01 Lancelot during the Black Rebellion, the Holy Britannian Empire set about creating a new mass production model inspired by it. In order to test the viability of such a machine, the Britannian engineers first created an early trial type, dubbed the RPI-212 Vincent. The Vincent combined elements of the Lancelot and its sister unit, the RZX-7 Lancelot Club, and scaled them back to more economical levels while retaining excellent performance. In addition to slash harkens and lance-type maser swords, the Vincent had a unique weapon called the needle blazer. This device, a development of the Lancelot’s own “Blaze Luminous” maser shield, emitted a short-range blast of focused energy that could punch right through enemy armor with devastating effect. At this early stage of development, the Vincent lacked a set color scheme, and each individual unit was colored to its pilot’s tastes. The first Vincent unit, a pre-production model painted gold with red accents, was piloted by Britannian assassin and Geass user Rolo Haliburton, who at the time used the name Rolo Lamperouge in order to keep a close eye on Lelouch Lamperouge, formerly known as the rebel leader Zero. A second Vincent, painted metallic white with purple accents and officially designated the RPI-212A Vincent Commander Type, was piloted by Gilbert G.P. Guilford when he attempted to thwart the Black Knights’ plan to kidnap Area 11’s new Viceroy. Though Rolo defected to the Black Knights and Guilford’s unit was destroyed in its first battle, the Vincent was considered proven, and Britannia created a full production model, named the RPI-212B Vincent Ward. Rolo used his Vincent in service of his adoptive brother Lelouch. However, during Lelouch’s massacre of the Followers of Geass in China, Rolo’s Vincent was badly damaged by the FXF-503Y Siegfried, and was subsequently scrapped.
