General Notes

The XCD-101 Ezekiel surpassed HALO's expectations for combat effectiveness, proving capable of obliterating whole enemy CF teams by itself. But the premiere One-series XSeed would meet its match in the YCF-00 Combat Frame Type Zero.

Agents of the secretive Lunar Underground salvaged Ezekiel. With the help of HALO pilot Simon Trent, they not only rebuilt the mighty XSeed but upgraded it to an even more formidable form.

Their approach was simple: Give the upgraded CF a double portion of Ezekiel's power. Armed with two high-output laser cannons, two racks of four reflector remotes each, two large plasma swords, and the addition of two shoulder-mounted 60mm Vulcan cannons, the refitted XSeed was Christened the XCD-101-2 Eliseus.

Eliseus immediately showcased its ability to dominate the battlefield against a force of AZC-104 Grand Dolphs. Whereas previously the Coalition's next-generation CFs had given the XSeeds a run for their money, Eliseus handily wiped out several of the Grand Dolphs at once.

Only the growing disillusionment of its pilot checked the XCD-101-2's destructive potential. Even still, Eliseus would go on to aid Wehrbund Bavaria's struggle against the SOC before rejoining HALO to combat an even larger threat.

  1. Rebuilds and upgrades are always fun to see.

    Those shoulder-mounted laser cannons are definitely intimidating, though by the time you're close enough to see them, you have a lot of other problems.

    What would your Five Man Band of Mecha be?

    1. From XSeed or the mech genre in general?

    2. I wouldn't get all the references for mech genre in general so I'd prefer CFXS.

    3. HALO qualifies with:
      >Arthur: Leader
      >Ivan: Lancer
      Simon: Smart Guy
      Faust: Big Guy
      Mitzi: The Chick

    4. Folks won't get this one since it's from XSeed: S & SS, but my ultimate CFXS 5-Man Band is:
      >The Leader: Jehu Red
      >The Lancer: Dex Trapper
      >The Smart Guy: Thatch Drummond
      >The Big Guy: Kaiser Eckhart
      >The Chick: Ƶ
