Elysium (エリシウム Elysium?) is a Martian Kataphrakt that appears in the ALDNOAH.ZERO television series. It is piloted by Baron Yacoym, an Orbital Knight. It is also commonly referred to as "Frozen Elysium".
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Elysium is equipped with an Aldnoah Drive that allows for it to create a 1 km radius Entropy Dilution Field. It saps the molecular motion of all matter. It creates super-low temperatures that can transform the air and freeze it.
Special Equipment and Features
- Entropy Dilution Field
- It saps the molecular kinetic energy of all matter within its field. For Elysium, its field is a circle with 1 km radius.
- When bullets are fired at it, their molecular kinetic energy is sapped thus entering a superconductive state. Where then these superconductive bullets are deflected by the Meissner effect. (Implying that the Elysium is producing a magnetic field)
The Elysium has no armaments to speak of, for its only weapon is its Entropy Dilution Field.
Yacoym goes after the Deucalion's loading dock. While doing so, Harbinger Platoon engages him. The leader and two other pilots are frozen in their KG-7 Areion's. Inko Amifumi and Rayet Areash try to hold him off, and defeat him. However, they are unable to, and in the nick of time Inaho Kaizuka arrives. He engages the Elysium bit by bit firing bullets then grenades to temporarily create air bursts. This lets him get up right in front of the Elysium, allowing him to fire at point-blank range, destroying it. (AZ2: "This Side of Paradise")
