The Safir is the chosen knightmare frame of Nena Carmine, the Britannian Empire's Knight of Eight in Code Geass Megiddo.

Appearance[]

Inspired by the Gundam Deathscythe from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz, but as a Knightmare Frame. It has noticeably sharp and angled armor, giving it a demonic profile. Colors are dark red and black with grey highlights.

Design[]

Designed at the auspices of Nena Carmine, the eccentric Knight of Eight, the Safir is one of the more unorthodox designs to be produced by Britannia, even for a Knight of the Round. Like most Round units, the Safir was designed around close-combat capability, and as such possesses far greater speed and mobility than average (which are further emphasized by its somewhat lighter weight), while its light but durable armor provides it a fair amount of protection. It also features the advanced electronics and mechanical systems of its generation, by themselves granting the Safir performance above and beyond those of most knightmare types.

However, what truly sets the Safir apart, even from its brethren within the Rounds, is that it holds a very unique type of weapon: a large, ornate Maser Vibration Scythe. Though forwardly looking underequipped, as its only other weapons are a pair of forearm mounted slash harkens, this scythe is actually all that the Safir and its devicer require to fight. As Nena's fighting style is set around executing a series of dance-like maneuvers, namely those involving spins, twirls and other elaborate movements, the scythe is the perfect weapon to utilize, as its fluidness, reach and versatility allow the Safir to engage its foes from multiple angles, in both offensive and defensive advances. Also, the Safir's combat computer has been programmed with a series of combat techniques (or "dance steps" as Nena calls them) in order to bring out the weapon and its host knightmare's full potential.

Beyond those, the Safir's only other defining point is its profile. As Nena specifically requested for her steed to be fashioned around a "true nightmare", the Safir holds a notable Grim Reaper-like visage, which naturally fits in confuction with its primary weapon. This, combined with the Safir's elegant yet deadly performance in battle alongside the knowledge that it is piloted by the Knight of Eight, has instilled terror into more than one enemy pilot.

History[]

Created for Nena Carmine, Knight of Eight, and aptly titled "Reaper of Britannia", the Safir would make its debut during the Great World War. Notably, it would see service on the Western Eurasian Front, in which Nena took a direct role in the invasion of Spain and France, and later on in Area 22 (China), where she would fight against the Chinese Liberation Army (namely against General Li Xingke himself and his Tianshou Team) alongside the newly returned Black Knights.
