The Guren Mk-I (紅蓮壱式, Guren Isshiki, lit. Crimson Lotus Type-01) is a prototype Knightmare Frame model designed by Indian engineer, Rakshata Chawla, that was produced in several numbers within the Militarized Zone of India. It is the predecessor to the Guren Mk-II that was deployed in Japan by the Black Knights. Also, one of the Guren Mk-I frames was remodeled into the Byakuen and provided to Orpheus Zevon, a terrorist of the organization Peace Mark. Like other Knightmares Frames designed by Rakshata, the Guren Mk-I features an unconventional pilot seat shaped in the form of a motorbike seat, and a helm-like outgrowth surrounding its retractable head. One of these units was captured by the Holy Britannian Empire and subsequently piloted by Britannian knight Dasko la Clermont, before it was destroyed in battle by the Byakuen.
Design and DevelopmentEdit
Unlike the Guren Mk-II and the Byakuen, the Guren Mk-I lacks a specialized weapon on its right arm like the Radiation Wave Surger or 7-Type Integrative Armaments Arm, and only possesses an ordinary manipulator hand instead. Otherwise, the Guren Mk-I's armaments are nearly identical to the Guren Mk-II's, consisting of a Ryogo Otsugata Tozantou fork knife, a 43mm grenade launcher attached to its left arm, and a single Slash Harken on the left side of its chest. The Guren Mk-I piloted by Dasko la Clermont is also equipped with an anti-Knightmare EM Jousting Lance standard to Gloucesters and a standard Assault Rifle.
Appearance-wise, the Guren Mk-I is virtually identical to the Guren Mk-II, except for the lack of a Radiation Wave Surger on its right arm, a grey cockpit and upper chest piece instead of orange like the Mk-II, a faceplate that is black instead of white, and orange eyes instead of blue.
Main article: Byakuen A variant of the Guren scheduled to appear in the upcoming side-story Code Geass: Oz the Reflection, piloted by Orpheus Zevon. It is white, unlike the red color scheme of the Guren Mk-II, and features different equipment and a single, long horn. To be precise, it is based on the Guren Mk-II's predecessor, the Guren Mk-I, which was produced in several numbers in the Militarized Zone of India, and it has been customized for Orpheus' use. Though lacking a Radiation Wave device, it has a series of short and long range weapons integrated into its right arm, for a total of 7. It also has a device known as the "Gefjun Breaker" installed in the horn on its forehead, which is based on the technology of the Gefjun Disturber and can stop the activation of Sakuradite within a 100m circumference in exchange for massive power consumption from its Energy Filler.
