CORELINE: New Paradigm
Principality of Zeon
The Principality of Zeon is the government of Side 3, led by Degwin Sodo Zabi, located at L2, behind the Moon. They are an aggressive, expansionist nation and would take over the Earth Sphere if they could. They control the lunar city of Granada and parts of Mars, through the Mars Zeon or Oldsmobile Army as well. However, their ambitions are kept in check by the chaotic situation in Coreline and their ongoing war against the Moon Race and to defend their holdings on Mars from the various hostile forces such as the War of the Worlds Martians, White Martians, and the Gradosian Army.
There are several renegade factions of Zeon that do not except the authority of the Sodo, the most notable being the Delaz Fleet, part of the Divine Crusaders, led by Aiguille Delaz, who is loyal to Ghiren Zabi who was expelled from Side 3 after it was learned that he had killed his father, Degwin in the original Mobile Suit Gundam timeline, Axis Zeon led by regent Haman Karn who rules in the name of Mineva Lao Zabi and does not acknowledge the Sodo’s right to rule, saying he is an “Alt usurper”, though some of this faction, led by Glemy Toto have joined with the Delaz Fleet, and Char’s Zeon led by Char Aznable, with his doppelganger Full Frontal also being a high ranked leader and formed from the Second and Third Neo Zeon movements and sometimes known as “the Sleeves”. Axis Zeon does at least cooperate with the Principality against their mutual enemies.
The main mass production mech used by the Principality of Zeon is the OMS-06RF RF Zaku, originally developed by the Mars Zeon. The other “Oldsmobile Army” mechs are also common, and Zeon also has a large variety of mechs from throughout it’s history. However, the Zeonic leadership acknowledges the flaws of these mechs, including the fact that they are vulnerable to the scaled down mobile suits the Earth Federation is using. They are currently in negotiations with Side 2’s Zanscare Empire for access to the more modern designs put out by BESPA.
The Zeons consider the Zanscare Empire and ZAFT to be their main allies in the Earth Sphere. They also have good relations with the United Colonies. On Mars they are fighting alongside the Vagan, and various human settlers.
