Technology & Combat Characteristics
Whereas the Vayeate Suivant was designed as an offensive mobile suit, the Mercurius Suivant was designed primarily with defense in mind like the the Mercurius, and was armed with a small beam gun and a large AS Crash Shield (similar in design to the one Scorpio uses). It was also equipped with a set of twenty planet defensors, which were small disc-shaped objects which projected an energy shield to protect the Mercurius Suivant or another mobile suit(s). As the Mercurius and Vayeate were painted red and blue respectively, Mercurius Suivant was painted in all white while Vayeate Suivant was painted in all black.
- Beam Gun
- A ranged beam weapon that gives the Mercurius Suivant short-to-mid ranged firepower. It possesses less power than the standard beam rifle, but because of its small size, it is ideal for the close combat role of the Mercurius Suivant.
- Planet Defensor
- A small disc-shaped object that generate an energy shield, the Mercurius Suivant is equipped with twenty planet defensors on its back to defend itself or an allied mobile suit. A period of powerful shots against the planet defensors can cause them to be weakened and lose their power to produce an energy shield. When low on energy, they can return to the mobile suit for recharging.
- AS Crash Shield
- A weapon that allows the Mercurius Suivant to block and attack almost simultaneously, it is a shield that is integrated with a powerful beam saber, enabling it to engage in close combat when required.
The Mercurius Suivant was piloted by Luna Armonia in the service of OZ Prize and fought against Odin Bernett and Roche Nattono. It was destroyed by the Grand Chariot's beam cannon on the orders of Valder Farkill when he deemed the Armonia sisters to be no longer of any use to him. Miraculously, Luna survived this.
- Mercurius Suivant's motif is derived from the Raijin, a mythical demon in Japanese Mythology.
- "Suivant" is French for "Following", possibly referencing the Mercurius Suivant as a design "following", or succeeding, the original Mercurius.
