The Shenque (Mandarin for "Divine Bird") is a knightmare frame utilized by the Chinese Liberation Army in Code Geass Megiddo. It is noteworthy as the personal knightmare of Captain Yu Bai, one of the three Tianshou (Mandarin for "Heavenly Beasts"), the loyal followers of General Li Xingke.

Appearance[]

The Shenque generally looks akin to the Shenhu, but given elements of the Gundam Throne Drei from Mobile Suit Gundam 00 as well as its own unique mask design and three feather antennae on its head. Primary colors are CLA standard green and red.

Design[]

Developed (under forced coercion) by Rakshata Chawla herself as part of the Four Beasts line, the Shenque was meant to be a next generation knightmare frame that would see the highly antiquated Chinese Liberation Army brought to the modern age. Possessing both advanced technology as well as the standard superior engineering of the Chawla Design Bureau, the Shenque was very much a product of the seventh generation; in fact, the Chinese had specifically requested that the Shenque and its three siblings be able to fight the Britannian Lancelot on equal footing. And though highly reluctant to serve the oppressive communists, Rakshata would nonetheless grant the Chinese a weapon like no other; one that would serve them well some years later.

Amongst its lineup, the Shenque was designed to be the Ultimate Support Unit. Having been built by the same team that developed the Guren Isshiki, and later on the Guren Nisshiki, the Shenque incorporated many design elements of its Japanese oriented counterparts, as well as some of its own unique features. Its main feature is its applied usage of baryon tech, which was the standard trait of the entire Four Beasts line. In the Shenque's case, it mounted a powerful Baryon Field System in its shoulders. Functionally similar to a Gefjun Disturber, the baryon field extends over a large area, disrupting electronic signals both within and without machines. At medium power, it "merely" jams communication and sensor systems, while at full power it causes a gefjun disturber-like effect in which all electrical units within the vicinity are neutralized.

Its secondary weapons are two "Sheng Biao" slash harkens mounted on its wrist. By wrapping or impaling an enemy with the slash harkens, the Shenque can send a powerful electrical charge along the cable, instantly destroying the knightmare on the receiving end. Alongside, the Shenque's wrist armor can spin in place to turn the Slash Harkens into powerful flails which can double as shields. Finally, the Shenque is armed with a dadao as its principle melee weapon. Though lacking any special features, the dadao is a robust weapon capable of cutting through most forms of armor.

History[]

Though meant to be a pathfinder for future Chinese knightmares, the Shenque, along with its three siblings, would prove too advanced and too difficult for most Chinese pilots to utilize. Thus, after several disastrous evaluation runs, some of which actually ended in pilot fatalities, the Shenque and its brethren were placed into storage and promptly forgotten. As a result, the Chinese Liberation Army would continue to utilize the Yaoguai as its mainline knightmare, much to the detriment of Chinese devicers and commanders everywhere.

In 2018, however, the Federation would become annexed by Britannia, and the Chinese Liberation Army would end up going rogue and underground under the direction of is last commanding General, Li Xingke. Through this process, Li and his disciples, the Tianshou, would rediscover the Four Beasts and promptly put them back into action. The Shenque would be taken by Captain Yu Bai, the second "eldest" of the Tianshou. Though it would take him and his compatriots almost an entire year to learn to control their new weapons, Bai would eventually come to master the Shenque and use it in his army's insurrection against the Britannian occupiers and their collaborators.
