Welcome to the instructions for the SHINIGAMI System Core! The above picture is the parts you’ll need. This particular model is the one used on AEGAKS-APB 004 D-Gy ‘Cerunnos’. (Just kidding, it really is, but all of my Cores are built the same way, just with different colors.)
First, you take the robot arms and put them on the round thing.
Then put the little round plate on top.
Next is this half-cone thing.
Then comes the cone. That rod is a ‘6’or a '5'. It doesn't really matter.
Put the rod in the end.
Then put this round thing on.
And then this round block with a hole in it.
Ta-Daa! You have a Core Booster!
SHINIGAMI is an acronym which stands for:
The way the system works is: Basically, the pilot activates their secondary Neural Uplink, providing a direct access between the unit’s main computer system and the pilot’s mind, unlocking the full abilities of the Neural Trace system, including the head, because the SHINIGAMI System requires the sheer processing power of the Human brain in order to perform the complex equations that come with fracturing the crystal rod that makes up the core of the Drive Booster unit. The crystal rod contains enough energy to power a D-type frame for several months, so when it shatters, all of that energy is released at once, quadrupling the weapon and motion systems output for about fifteen minutes. The rod actually releases more energy, but fifteen minutes is about the maximum amount of time that the pilot can handle, and after about twenty minutes, the D-Type frame will actually explode from within, destroying or severely damaging anything within about a half-mile radius, as well as completely destroying the unit. A beneficial side effect of this system is that it will completely recharge the main and auxiliary power cells. The crystal rod is completely used up once the system is activated so it must be replaced after use. The prohibitive cost of the core of the booster unit consequently means that there are very few SHINIGAMI equipped mecha. In order to activate the SHINIGAMI system, the pilot has to verbally disable the limiter and manually input a code word of his choice, one for each of the four levels of the SHINIGAMI system. Levels one through three increase the output of the unit exponentially, but level four is a desperation move that funnels all the generated power through the frame at once, burning out the circuits and killing the pilot nine times out of ten. The one time that it didn’t kill the pilot, it left him catatonic, so level four is a method of last resort. The four levels of the SHINIGAMI System correspond to the amount of Crystal Rod that was shattered. Level one takes a quarter of the rod to use, level two takes half, and so on. The unbroken rod pieces can be used in other cores, but the main unit is usually replaced every time it is used.
Remember if you use it to give credit to Rai Schrado.
This was inspired by the GN Drives from Gundam 00, and the SHINIGAMI System itself was inspired by the TRANS AM System from the same anime. Ummm…. Not much else to say here really.
Until Next Time, Keep Building!
