The Lancelot is Britannia's prototype seventh generation knightmare frame and the personal knightmare of Suzaku Kururugi during the events of Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

Essentially the Lancelot Conquista without its float system or hadron blaster. Retains all the fanciful engravings from Akito the Exiled as well.

Design[]

Being the first "true" seventh generation knightmare frame, the Lancelot is quite obviously years ahead of its time in technological edge. Though the operating system and frame materials are slight improvements over earlier Knightmares, its most noteworthy feature is the fact that its entire frame is suffused with the highly conductive mineral Sakuradite. This affords the Lancelot incredible energy efficiency, giving it the ability to power several theoretical developments from the "lost" sixth generation, including the VARIS rifle, MSV particle shield, and MVS vibrational swords. Unlike other Knightmares, the Lancelot initially did not feature an ejectable cockpit that allows the pilot to quickly escape.

Following its near destruction at the hands of Joachim Rommel, the Lancelot would be recovered and, alongside its twin brother, the Mordred, would be completely refitted and upgraded by Camelot. Amongst these upgrades, its armor would be enhanced while its unique Core Luminous, already powerful on its own, would be tuned and refined, greatly increasing its power, while countermeasures against electronic interference would be placed. Alongside, in reference to Suzaku's preference toward kicking attacks, two additional "Blaze Luminous" shields on its legs, increasing the effectiveness of its kicks.

History[]

Though the development of the Knightmare Frame once progressed rapidly, a period of stagnation rises following the development of the Sutherland. Since this stagnation is the result of the Sutherland's relative lack of innovation, the so-called sixth generation is dominated by trial-type machines that failed to produce any concrete results. For some time, it looks as though Knightmare Frames have hit their peak. However, shortly afterward, this slow period is broken by the creation of the Mordred and the Lancelot (originally known by the respective designations Z-00 and Z-01), the first "true" seventh generation Knightmares.

Due to the immense cost of producing such a machine, the Lancelot is intended as a unique prototype with no plans for mass production. However, the lack of available pilots means that both units remain little more than a showpiece. This changes when Suzaku Kururugi, formerly a "grunt" in the Britannian military, is discovered by Advanced Special Envoy Engineering Corps member Lloyd Asplund. Suzaku's high simulator scores and the desperate situation lead to his piloting the Lancelot to help deal with the Resistance forces during the liquidation of the Shinjuku Ghetto. After single-handedly taking down the entire enemy force, Suzaku is assigned as the Lancelot's permanent pilot, and becomes the biggest thorn in the side of the Order of the Black Knights, who dub the machine the "White Armor." The Lancelot remains a superior unit until the later introduction of units that can rival its power, such as the Guren Nishiki and the Gekka.

Later on, the Lancelot would be used to thwart the Chinese Federation's attempted takeover of Kyushu and then participates against the Black Rebellion in the Tokyo Settlement, in which Suzaku would slay many Black Knights and capture the renegade Zero, who is really Suzaku's former friend Lelouch Lamperouge. Because of this and his proven skills in battle, Suzaku is elevated to the Knights of the Round some months later, taking on the titles Knight of Seven and "White Knight of Britannia". Despite his promotion, Suzaku would retain the Lancelot as his personal unit, and once Britannia declares war on its lifelong rival the Eurasian Union, he would take the unit with him to North Africa to aid in the conquest of the continent. There however, the Lancelot would finally meet its match in the Eurasian Union's own prototype seventh generation knightmare frame, the Koenigsloewe, piloted by General Joachim Rommel, commander of the 1st Panzer Army. Though Suzaku puts up a hard fight, he is overwhelmed by Rommel's aggressive fighting style and the Koenigsloewe's advanced weapons; as a result, the Lancelot would be all but completely destroyed after a pitched battle, with Suzaku barely managing to survive.

After its recovery and subsequent upgrade, Suzaku would continue to make use of the Lancelot throughout the North African campaign, where he would remain until being recalled back to the Imperial Homeland for the Day of the Founding. After the reemergence of the Order of the Black Knight's leader Zero, Suzaku would utilize his steed to battle the masked revolutionary and the "captured" Mordred in the ruins of His Majesty's Naval Base, Pearl Harbor; a duel that would leave Suzaku horribly traumatized as well as completely devoted to hunting down both Zero and his Black Knights once and for all. In spite of the latter however, both he and the Lancelot would be reassigned by the Emperor himself to the Western Front upon recovery.
