Ganymede

Ganymede

Production Data

Developed during what would later be called the third generation of Knightmare Frames, the Ganymede is the brainchild of the rising Ashford Foundation. Created shortly before the development of the Yggdrasil drive, the Ganymede is powered by a large external battery, limiting its range and operation time. In spite of this, it forms the basis of practically every Knightmare Frame constructed thereafter. In large part, this is due to the effectiveness of the basic design, along with its skilled test pilot, a young woman named Marianne Lamperouge. Her incredible abilities earn her the nickname “Marianne the Flash,” and eventually she becomes one of the many wives of the Emperor of Britannia, Charles zi Britannia.
