Technical and Historical Notes

Developed and funded by the Kyoto House, the Type-02 Guren Mk-II was the first wholly Japan-made Knightmare Frame. Produced under the auspices of former Britannian scientist Rakshata Chawla, the Guren was effectively the second seventh generation Knightmare, putting it on par with the powerful Z-01 Lancelot. Like the Lancelot, it took a theoretical technology from the sixth generation and put it into practical use; in the case of the Guren Mk-II, this was the radiation wave. With this system, powerful microwaves could be emitted from the Guren’s right hand, causing incredible damage to electronics as well as organics. This radiation could also be used to power certain devices, and could form an impromptu defensive field capable of stopping even a shot from the Lancelot’s VARIS rifle. Though the Kyoto House favored the Japanese Liberation Front in the past, the Guren Mk-II was instead awarded to the Order of the Black Knights and subsequently assigned to Kallen Kouzuki, the Order’s highly talented young ace pilot. In Kallen’s capable hands, the Guren proved to be a match for the Lancelot, fighting the dreaded “White Armor” to a standstill on several occasions. During the Battle of Tokyo, the Guren lost its right arm in battle with the Lancelot. Afterwards, the arm was replaced with a less efficient version from the Mk-II’s predecessor.
