The MN Mime is perhaps the most enigmatic entries of Axel development in its time. Only in hindsight can an understanding of the unit be reached after examination of records and consideration from multiple points of view.
The MN Mime was not entirely of Sunflower origin. While the construction plans were deleted following the war, recovered parts correlate with fragments of a machine code-named the "Malafa", supposedly constructed (and later destroyed) at the Palifca colony during a top-secret incident that occurred there. Most historians agree that the Malafa prototype, and the MN Mime, share a direct ancestry. A few believe that the Mime was a reconstruction of the Malafa as the remains of the unit were documented as recovered, but the whereabouts never disclosed.
There are hundreds of eyewitness accounts of this unit in battle from UEPC space division soldiers attesting to the... eerie nature of the MN Mime. Most Axel battles in space follow particular patterns but not the Mime when observed in combat. Moreover, it is believed that the Mime performed feats from precognition to bending the known laws of physics.
This and other bits of evidence suggest the MN Mime was the first production run Axel to take advantage of Agitator powers. It was designed for use by those close to the Magnate, primarily women. The obvious femininity of the unit, combined with testimonies from Sunflower forces, seem to suggest that the Magnate gave these units to favored females in his forces as some kind of private harem guard. The existence of which suggests a source for the apparent discontent among the Magnate's leadership during the Sunflower war.
Only two of what are believed to be twenty units were confirmed destroyed, and one by an unnamed Agitator in an advanced Axel stolen from Sunflower before hostilities began. The other eighteen units remain unaccounted for.
-------------------- Week became a major disappointment near the end. Thought I'd cheer myself up by polishing up another find in my archives and make it into an Axel. Oddly enough it fits for what I want it to be.
One of these days I really need to make that prototype of the game I intend to use these things with.
