Elpeo Puru is a character from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ and is a major character in The Knights of the Multiverse, introduced in Season 2. The pilot of the Qubeley Mk-II and later the Gundam Mk-II, she's a newtype who first appears fighting for Axis Zeon, but eventually sides with The Knights after making close bonds with several of them, particulary Kamille Bidan.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Puru has an energetic and cheerful demeanor that delights in things that make her feel good, like ice cream or piloting a mobile suit. She views the world as her playground to reasonable degree, but can be very serious when she needs to be, despite her immaturity.

Skills & Equipment[edit | edit source]
Puru shows powerful Newtype abilities that allow her to feel the presence of other Newtypes with amazing accuracy and quickness. She is able to strongly attune to Kamille and Puru Two. Her Newtype abilities are also further evidenced by the simple fact of her ability to pilot a machine that uses funnels.
Relaitionships[edit | edit source]
Puru sees Kamille as an older brother, and is always begging him to play with her. As an only child (or so she thought), she felt very lonely with no parents or siblings, with the closest things she had formerly were Glemy and Haman (and even then, they weren't the best role models either), and simply wants to be happy with him in the form of a family. As such, she gets very protective of him, especially when around other women.
Mohm[edit | edit source]
At first, Puru and Mohm were very antagonistic towards each other, both pining for Kamille's total attention, with Puru even pulling the "you don't count because you're a robot" card at one point. Thankfully though, the two managed to put their petty feud behind, especially after Kamille chastised them both for their ridiculous behavior, and even managed to develop a sisterly bond.

Notes[edit | edit source]
In the original ZZ Gundam, much of Puru's backstory is left in mystery, both for her and her clones. So, KotM seeks to try and answer those questions in Season 2. Aside from that, several elements from Puru's storyline in the original series has been changed:
- To tie Puru's story into the idea of the Zeta Gundam: A New Translation timeline, her relationship with Judau Ashta (ZZ's main character) is swapped out for Kamille. Their relationship is played up a lot more as a sibling bond, as opposed to in the original series, where Puru had a crush on Judau and got jealous when he was getting involved with other females.
- Not so much a change to her character but moreso a change in her storyarc, but in KotM, she's introduced right at the beginning of the season she appears in, whereas in ZZ she was introduced halfway through the show's run.
Her taking command of the Gundam Mk-II is to represent her bond with Kamille, as it was Kamille's main mobile suit before he piloted the Zeta.
