Since the creation of the red ant, the costs associated with the research, development, and production of the modern mecha have exploded considerably. As such, the development of new mecha is a field dominated by a few key industrial players and powerful galactic governments; the few entities with the resources and power to 100 ton+ machines of destruction. With such high barriers to entry, many assumed the key players in mecha creation would remain fixed barring some sort of major galactic upheaval.

However, in industry so militant as mecha creation, innovation and creativity are a necessary lifeblood. Stagnation risks defeat, and the next super weapon could be the game changer that sets new battles and new wars into motion.

Sensing such a stagnation growing, a new player has entered the field, calling themselves Zodiac Amalgamated Industries. In the same moment the corporation announced its existence to the galaxy, it announced its reason for being - a new line of heavy mecha. Starting with the “Leo,” ZAI seems intent to position itself as a high caliber mega corp producing elite mecha. The company’s exact founders and investors remains a closely guarded secret - and all indications so far are that the company intends to position itself “above the fray” of any one galactic government, preferring the timeless strategy of being a neutral merchant of death. Due to the secretive nature of the core investor group, the high levels of finance and tech know-how needed to engage in such an endeavor, rumors swirl. Many propose it is simply a callous bid by monied interests to enrich themselves further, while others believe it to be a clandestine operation by one of the galactic governments to spy on other potential enemies under the guise of good business. Still others posit the possibility that it was created and automated by a sinister mind such as the dastardly doctor Drake.

Regardless of who benefits, the Leo itself is a finely tuned machine too difficult to turn down despite questions about its origin. The Leo boasts potent upgrades to both its accuracy as well as its ability to dodge enemy fire. Coupled with its high speed, and truly a devastating ability to critically strike its opponents, the Leo is an aggressive mecha that exemplifies a “strike first, strike last” approach to warfare. With a full 10 customizable slots for engine enchantments, the Leo is capable of generating speeds typically reserved for much smaller and lighter mecha. Pilots would also do well to take advantage of the strong synergy the mecha has with fire based weaponry, though laser weaponry too will get a significant boost.
