Living Dead Division (リビング・デッド師団 Ribingu Deddo Shidan?) is a faction of the Principality of Zeon in Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. As it name suggest, its members composes of soldiers that received prosthetic body parts, making them no different to that of a living dead. For the most part this Zeon unit can be classed as an auxiliary combat unit, as it is limited in its tactical abilities. As a unit the size of the Living Dead Division is more like a squadron and is maintained from a Papua-class ship named Dried Fish and supported by several Musai class vessels.

History

The Living Dead Division stations upon the remains of Side 4, Moore. Their main objective is to guard it against the Federation Forces, especially the Moore Brotherhood which composed of the fallen colony's former residents. Elite members guarded it using Mobile Suits specifically made to the Thunderbolt Sector in conjunction with the Big Gun turrets that snipe upon incoming Federation forces.

The Living Dead Division had good success in their hit and run and long-range sniping tactics against the Federation's advance fleets, however, the Moore Brotherhood's Full Armor Gundam eventually proved overwhelming to their defense, killing many of the Division's snipers. In order to destroy the Gundam, Living Dead Division pilot Daryl Lorenz volunteered for the still-experimental MS-06R Zaku II High Mobility Type (Reuse "P" Device), or "Psycho Zaku" for short.

During the final clash between the two forces, Daryl was able to destroy the Moore Brotherhood fleet and defeat the Full Armor Gundam in his Psycho Zaku. However, the Living Dead Division fleet was also wiped out by the Full Armor Gundam save for the Dried Fish, which only had its bridge destroyed. After this battle, the Living Dead Division survivors were rescued by a Zeon mobile fleet and sent to A Baoa Qu to reorganize.

After taking part in the fortresses' defense and seeing the end of the war, a dozen or so Living Dead Division soldiers joined Daryl Lorenz in fighting for the Zeon Remnant Forces on Earth. In honor of Daryl, they designed a new team emblem featuring a skull with the blade antenna of Daryl's Psycho Zaku. The skull was emblazoned with the letters "DL", which stood for both "Living Dead" and "Daryl Lorenz".
