Kaite gives a modified ZAKU Phantom to another mercenary, [[Serpent Tail]] member [[Elijah Kiel]], after accidentally destroying Elijah's beloved customized [[ZGMF-1017 GINN]]. His '''ZGMF-1001 ZAKU Elijah Kiel Custom''' replaces the hand grenades with hardpoints for a [[ZGMF-1017 GINN|GINN]]'s heavy sword and incorporates a customised Phase Shift armour. While most Phase Shift equipped mobile suits have the armour automatically activated as the MS starts up, Elijah can activates the armour whenever he wants on his ZAKU. Furthermore, the PS armour is only applied to certain areas of the MS. These areas are determined after analysing Elijah's fighting style and covers his weakness. Both of these features help to conserve the MS's energy <ref> Seed Destiny Astray Photonovel Chapter 11 </ref>. Elijah's ZAKU is normally gray and turns red when the PS armour is activated. In addition, Elijah's ZAKU includes his trademark "buster sword" head fin and can mount 3-tube "Pardus" missile launchers on its legs, as well as a customized flight-capable [[Striker Pack|Wizard Pack]]. The shoulders can also be fitted with small beam cannons, removing the shoulder shield in the process.

The ZAKU is armed with Elijah's trademark "buster sword" head fin and can mount 3-tube "Pardus" missile launchers on its legs, while the shoulders can be fitted with beam cannons or other suitable equipments, instead of the standard shoulder shield and spike. However doing this would also remove the beam tomahawk stored within the shield. Elijah's ZAKU retains the ability to mount the Blaze, Gunner, and Slash Wizard packs, but it is most often equipped with its own customized flight-capable [[Striker Pack|Wizard Pack]].
 
Elijah's ZAKU, besides being able to mount the standard, Blaze, Gunner, and Slash Wizard packs, it is also equipped with its own custom Wizard pack. This Custom Pack grants the Elijah Custom greater mobility similar to the Blaze Wizard pack but features more thrusters and two side mounted beam cannons for extra firepower.

The ZGMF-1001 ZAKU Elijah Kiel Custom is a Serpent Tail mobile suit of the Cosmic Era.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A modified ZAKU Phantom given to Serpent Tail member Elijah Kiel by Kaite Madigan after the latter accidentally destroyed the former's customized ZGMF-1017 GINN. The most unique characteristic of ZGMF-1001 ZAKU Elijah Kiel Custom is that it has Phase Shift armor, the ZAKU is normally gray and turns red when the PS armor is activated. Unlike most Phase Shift equipped mobile suits, the ZAKU's PS armor is activated only when Elijah thinks it is neccessary. Furthermore, it is only applied to certain areas of the MS, which are determined after analysing Elijah's fighting style and covers his weakness. Both of these features are designed to help conserve the MS's energy [1]. The ZAKU is armed with Elijah's trademark "buster sword" head fin and can mount 3-tube "Pardus" missile launchers on its legs, while the shoulders can be fitted with beam cannons or other suitable equipments, instead of the standard shoulder shield and spike. However doing this would also remove the beam tomahawk stored within the shield. Elijah's ZAKU retains the ability to mount the Blaze, Gunner, and Slash Wizard packs, but it is most often equipped with its own customized flight-capable Wizard Pack.

Armaments

  • MMI-M633 Beam Assault Rifle
The same type of beam rifle as used by the regular mass produced ZAKU.
  • Shield
Unlike normal ZAKU Phantom, Elijah's ZAKU only mounts a shield on its left shoulder. This is the same type of shield as used by the regular mass produced ZAKU and as such, it also stores a MA-M8 beam tomahawk.
  • M68 Pardus 3-barrel Missile Launcher
The same model of weapon used by the GINNs, a pair of them can be optionally mounted on the legs.
  • Beam Cannon
A pair of beam cannons that can be optionally mounted on the shoulder, they are weaker than standard beam cannon but have a wide range of fire during close combat.
  • "Buster sword" head fin
An anti-beam coated blade on the head.

Special Equipments and Features

  • Hardpoints for mounting Wizard Packs
  • Customized Wizard Pack
A Wizard pack designed by Kaite for Elijah's ZAKU. The main thrusters provide the MS with higher mobility and can tilt downwards for more than 90° or upwards close to 90°. The wizard pack also mounts additional thrusters and wings on the sides. When they are deployed, Elijah's ZAKU gains greater thrusts as well as flight capability in the atmosphere.
  • Meteor Support System
Elijah's ZAKU can dock with the powerful METEOR support system weapon platform developed for Justice and Freedom Gundam. However, the METEOR has to be fitted with N-Jammer Canceller and nuclear reactor before it can be used by the ZAKU.

History

Because Kaite Madigan had unintentionally disabled Elijah Kiel's GINN, Kaite compensated by giving Elijah one of his own ZAKU and customising it to fit Elijah's usage. In its first battle, Elijah used the "Buster sword" head fin to penetrate the 360° "Armure Lumiere" barrier of the repaired Hyperion Unit 3, defeating the "Hero of Eurasia",Ivan Zamboise [2]. It was later hijacked by the Carbon Human clone of Goud Veia after his match with Elijah [3]. The ZAKU's whereabouts is currently unknown and Elijah has switched over to piloting the Vent Saviour Gundam that Goud Veia left behind for him.
