The Byakuen (Japanese for "White Flame") is a Knightmare frame utilized by the Peace Mark remnant force in Code Geass Megiddo. It is the trademark knightmare of the organization's leader Orpheus Zevon.

Design[]

A variation of the Guren series, the Byakuen was intended as a more "conventional" take of the initial design. As a result, it lacks its parent units' trademark radiant wave surger and other such features, but otherwise holds a similar level of performance, while its more baseline form actually makes it easier to pilot.

The Byakuen's main feature is its "7-Type Integrated Armament System", or "7-Type" for short. The 7-Type consists of a series of short and long-range weapons stored in a golden apparatus that is attached to the Byakuen's right arm, and allows the Byakuen to adapt to any battle situation at a moment's notice. The 7-Type is comprised of seven weapons: a regular manipulator hand at the end of its arm; two irregular red blades that can be used as a single blade with a jagged edge, a combined blade with the two pieces joined together, or as a giant scissors weapon; a drill that can easily pierce through heavy-armored Knightmare Frames; an ultra-output electromagnetic accelerator cannon that can switch its cartridge and fire either armor-piercing rounds or grenades; and, through the melding of an external module, a long-range bombardment cannon that can be utilized for fire support and siege warfare.

Aside from its 7-Type, the Byakuen's only other weapon is a single slash harken stored on the left side of its chest. It does, however, have a EMP device known as the "Gefjun Breaker" mounted in the horn on its forehead, which is a greatly expanded version of the patented Gefjun Disturber. In exchange for massive consumption of the Byakuen's Energy Filler, the Gefjun Breaker can stop the movement of all sakuradite-powered devices within a hundred meter circumference surrounding the Byakuen. However, the Byakuen itself also loses power because of the Gefjun field as well, making it a double-edged sword.

History[]

Developed as little more than a "side thought" by Guren creator Rakshata Chawla, the Byakuen did not exist beyond the blueprint stage until just after the Black Rebellion (and the Devastation) when said prints were sold to the terrorist organization Peace Mark. Having witnessed the great success of the seventh generation knightmare frames Lancelot and Guren throughout the Japanese Insurrection, Peace Mark intended to mass produce the Byakuen for its own forces in similar line to the Black Knights' Gekka. Unfortunately however, only one unit would be produced before the organization's destruction, which in turn would fall into possession of the surviving remnant operating out of Far Eastern Eurasia (Siberia). This unit would be taken as the personal Knightmare of the remnant's leader, Orpheus Zevon.

For the next seven years or so, Orpheus would utilize the Byakuen against his numerous enemies, first the EU and more radicalized militant forces throughout the Far East, and then Princess Marrybell's legions from Britannia. Though Orpheus and his remnant would achieve much in the way of success, up to and including the capture of the land battleship Jourdan (which would be rechristened Euliya after Orpheus' late wife), their accomplishments were ultimately negligible in the face of Eurasia's hold over the Far East, and then "Bloody Marry's" aggression. Fortunately Orpheus would gain needed support through the Order of the Black Knights and its mysteriously returned leader Zero, who, sharing the same litany of enemies, would offer much in the way of aid and material in exchange for collaboration against Britannia and the Eildons (an organization that Orpheus himself was once part of). This partnership would fully culminate in the Battle of Alexandra Land, in which Orpheus participated.

Throughout such conflicts, Orpheus and the Byakuen would do much fighting against their fated adversaries, Orpheus' estranged twin sister Oldrin and her Urien. Such battles would usually lead to stalemates between the twins, who are nominally as equal in skill as they are in appearance.
