The Valkyrie's Vigil: An international space station that hovers barely above the earth's atmosphere, visible from the planet's surface. It houses individuals from across the earth that have been chosen and trained in order to cultivate their specific talents in order to pilot the Knights, a designated group of specialized humanoid mechs.
These Knights were created in response to the rising threat of an alien menace dubbed as 'The Armada': A race of highly intelligent, sentient parasites, capable of invading and assimilating entire planets within a matter of days. The Armada commonly takes the form of large, masses of organic matter that can morph into a myriad of shapes, and is even capable of using advanced technology and communications systems.
The Valkyrie is a state of the art, inhabitable satellite- the first in the history of the earth. Systems that modify food, air filtration, and even gardening in a specialized greenhouse assures that the crew of the ship live in comfort away from the earth, though life aboard the station can get rather boring. 'Fraternizing' between the crew members is anything but uncommon.
This, of course, can cause various problems, especially if liaisons are between the pilots and frames of separate Knight mechs...
Those that are chosen to man the Knights are split into two groups: Pilots, and their Frames. Pilots are in charge of the weaponry and offensive measures in combat, and frames maneuver the Knight manually via a specialized zero gravity chamber within the mech, requiring a full body suit that will make the Knight unit mimic the frame's moves.
Unfortunately, frames are susceptible to feeling physical pain should the Knight be attacked or damaged, causing the relationships between a pilot and frame of a unit to be almost symbiotic, regardless of what terms they stand on a personal level. Certainly, a pilot and a frame that cannot get along (or at the very least put aside their differences) will not last very long in battle...
Le Voile la Nuit
(The Veil of Night)
-A black unit. The Veil does not rely on firepower so much as maneuverability and stealth, and is mounted with a sniper-like cannon. This unit requires that the pilot have incredible reaction time and aim to keep up with their frames, and a frame who is flexible in order to meet the full potential of the unit-
Hiro no Tsuki
(Hero of the Moon)
-A white unit. Unlike the other units, Hero specializes in melee and close-range combat, allowing it to have a sword mounted on its back. The pilot will need prior kendo training to wield the sword, with a frame that can sequence their moves with the pilot seamlessly-
Pilot: Sir Wolfgang
Grüner Ritter, in der Achtbaren Robe
(Green Knight, in Honorable Robe)
-A deep green unit. The 'tank', Honorable can take the most punishment of all the units, and is the only one mounted with a devastating laser to literally disintegrate foes. Unfortunately, weapons take a while to charge and fire, requiring a pilot with tactical sense and a frame that can think quickly on their feet in tense situations-
Pilot: Doktor Sleepless
In Rood, Tap ik Af
(In Sanguine, I Bleed)
-A deep red unit. Sanguine has the most firepower of all the other units, and can mow down wave after wave of enemies and still have ammo left to spare. It would be best of the pilot was well-versed and skilled in using firearms, with a stronger frame that can move a heavier unit with ease-
Frame: TinyValkyrie (Would you like this position?)
Monarca de los Mares que Rabian
(Monarch of the Raging Seas)
-A sapphire blue unit. The Monarch is by far the fastest of the units, and fitted with strong shielding plate and lance in its front in order to charge foes in addition to the standard gun fitted to units. Due to its speed, both the pilot and the frame need to have equally fast offensive and defensive maneuvering in order to meet the full potential of the unit-
