Technical and Historical Notes

Designed specifically for Knight of Six Anya Alstreim, the RZA-6DG Mordred was made to be a heavy assault powerhouse. Though it lacked mobility, the Mordred more than made up for this shortcoming by possessing almost unmatched offensive and defensive power. Its primary weapons were a set of improved hadron cannons, based on the IFX-V301 Gawain‘s design, mounted in the large binders over its shoulders. To supplement these, the Mordred mounted high-speed missile launchers all over its body. By using these two weapons systems, Anya could easily dominate virtually any battlefield, especially when partnered with her friend and teammates Gino Weinberg and Suzaku Kururugi in their own personal Knightmares, the RZA-3F9 Tristan and Z-01/A Lancelot Air Cavalry. Eventually, it was discovered that Empress Marianne Vi Britannia, thought killed eight years prior, had used the mystic power known as Geass to place her consciousness in Anya’s body before dying, causing the young woman’s memory gaps. Marianne eventually abandoned Anya in order to aid her husband Emperor Charles’ plan to change the world through the Geass. Directly opposed to their plan, their son Lelouch (formerly Zero) destroyed his parents and assumed the Britannian throne. Anya, left with fragmented memories, sided with Prince Schneizel against Lelouch. In the final battle between the two half-brothers’ forces, the Mordred entered into single combat with Jeremiah Gottwald’s Type-X/RPI-13J Sutherland Sieg. Though it seemed as if the Mordred had the advantage, Jeremiah sacrificed his machine to deal disabling damage to the Mordred, taking Anya out of the war.
