Gerbera Straight

Red Flame with Gerbera Straight

Gerbera Straight is a massive katana designed to be wielded exclusively by mobile suits. Its background is shrouded in mystery, though it is said to be created from lost technology. The sword has seen its fair share of battles, before becoming the MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Flame’s primary weapon.

Although Gerbera Straight is a physical weapon, it is effective against beam sabers due to an anti-beam coating on its blade. It can cut through almost anything with ease, including mobile suits. Essentially, Gerbera Straight is energy-free, as opposed to beam sabers, which consume vast amounts of energy.

Lowe Guele

Lowe Guele sought Gerbera Straight as he needed a weapon that would not deplete Red Flame’s energy supplies. He works as a grease monkey for the Junk Guild. His job eventually led him to an abandoned transport ship, where he discovered Red Flame. Despite the fact that Lowe was not physically augmented to pilot mobile suits, an A.I computer system allowed him to bypass such shortcomings. 

Red Flame is one of five prototypes developed in secret by the Orb Union. Collectively called Gundam Astray, they were created using data stolen from the G Project. Like the others, Red Flame is designed to be light-weight. As such, it is capable of unleashing sword slashes with Gerbera Straight at fast speeds to devastating effect. Besides the sword, a wide arsenal of weapons serves to increase Red Flame’s combat prowess.

Lowe’s search for Gerbera Straight took him to Un No, an old man who was renowned for his swordsmanship. Un No decided to give him Gerbera Straight after acknowledging Lowe as a talented swordsman. Although the sword was damaged, it was easy enough for Lowe to restore it to its former glory.

Rondo Ghina, one of Lowe's opponents

As Red Flame’s pilot, Lowe became involved in the power struggle among various factions — the Earth Alliance, the Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty (ZAFT) and the Orb Union. In particular, he fought against Rondo Ghina Sahaku, who was part of the Orb Union’s nobility, as well as Gold Flame’s pilot. Although Lowe managed to defeat Rondo Ghina, Gerbera Straight was broken in the process. 

MBF-P02 Astray Red Flame Powered Red

After the battle, Lowe repaired and bulked up Gerbera Straight, with the sword now measuring close to 500 feet. Its sheer size and weight required Red Flame to be further modified in order to wield it. The latest version is the MBF-P02 Astray Red Flame Powered Red. Lowe’s desire to protect those around him would lead him to battle formidable opponents such as Ash Gray, a psychopath who piloted the ZGMF-X11A Regenerate.
