Technical and Historical Notes

Despite its incredible performance and the skills of its pilot, Kallen Kouzuki, the Type-02/F1A Guren Flight was defeated in battle in the Chinese Federation by a combination of poor maintenance and the efforts of Li Xingke and his Knightmare Frame XT-404 Shen-Hu. Both machine and pilot were handed over to Britannia by the request of Suzaku Kururugi and taken back to Area 11. While Kallen was imprisoned, the Guren was handed over to Suzaku’s subordinates in the Camelot Engineering Corps. The head of the corps, Lloyd Asplund, deferred to his assistant Cecilé Croomy, allowing her to modify the Guren using a number of technologies intended for Suzaku’s new machine, the Z-01Z Lancelot Albion. This included the Energy Wing System, a new flight option of Cecilé’s design, which combined incredible propulsion with maser field “feathers” which could be used in the same fashion as the Blaze Luminous energy shields. In the end, Cecilé by her own admission went overboard, producing a unit so high-spec that it was thought nobody could truly pilot it, not even Suzaku. However, during the Second Battle of Tokyo, Kallen was broken out of her prison and hijacks the modified Guren, using it to tear through the battlefield and save Zero from the axe-crazy Knight of Ten, Luciano Bradley. When the Black Knights rebelled against Zero, Kallen struggled with the choice of who to side with, eventually becoming convinced that Zero/Lelouch had truly “gone bad” and swearing to kill him personally to atone for allowing him to become so powerful. In the final battle over Mount Fuji, Kallen and the Guren faced off against Suzaku and the Lancelot Albion in a duel that saw both units dealing crippling damage to one another, finally ending the rivalry between both the machines and their pilots.
