Orcus

Ferrite: 900
Bioptics: 700
Niodes: 60

Armed with a vicious sting, the Orcus is a highly maneuverable mecha that is prized for its swiftness and range of attack. After the Fides, it is one of the most sought after machines on the black market. The unique claws on its legs allow it better purchase on the ground for running and climbing, while the back mounted weapons can rotate 360 degrees. You will often find Orcus mecha used in the illegal Niode Matches, where pilots fight for prize money and fame.

The Shogunate will often send small units of fast Orces Mecha at the start of a fight to roust out the enemy and then fall back into position, firing shots as they retreat. This method has been proven most effective against the lesser organized Cogwerk forces, who do not have traditional military training and are more prone to panic under attack.

Among the 35-Ton Mecha, this is the one that will define a budding commander's army by speed, both in firing intervals and by bonuses to the already blazing cannon weapons.

    Zeppelin Addler Tesla

    Zeppelin Tesla liked the electric blue actuator accelerators on this mech. It didn't take long before his aesthetic affinities were gratified by the awesome speed of this poly-ped.

  • Eris Helbrandt

    Eris Helbrandt

    Has used an Orcus since she firest received one on her 11th birthday. The speed of the Mech allows her to act independently on the battlefield, coordinating attacks with her Servant and friend, Milly. The noble beast's frame serves as a reminder of her inner duty and character.

  • Zoticus

    Zoticus

    Despite his gruff demeanor, Zoticus has a noted affinity for the fauna of the galaxy, to the point that he has refused to pilot humanoid mecha for at least a decade. His dedication and focus seem to have paid off - the fluidity and precision with which he pilots his Orcus is truly unparalleled.
