Though Japan was easily conquered by the Holy Britannia Empire, it was forced to surrender by the sudden death of Prime Minister Genbu Kururugi at a point when the military was still eager to fight. As a result, even seven years later when the renamed Area 11 was firmly under Britannian control, the region was a hotbed of resistance as former soldiers and Japanese nationals fought back as best they could. One method of resistance was provided by the Kyoto House, a group of Japanese industrialists who funded and supported anti-Britannia groups in secret. Using their resources, the Kyoto House constructed the Type-1R Burai, a Knightmare Frame heavily cannibalized from the RPI-11 Glasgow. The biggest changes to the Glasgow’s design was the addition of a samurai-styled head and protectors, small shield-like bracers that allowed the Burai to defend against enemy attacks. Initially developed for the Japanese Liberation Front, the Burai was later sent to the rising Order of the Black Knights, with one customized unit piloted by Zero, the Order’s mysterious masked leader.
