Personality[edit | edit source]
Lorelai is a sweet and loving young girl, being very polite and open towards almost everyone she meets, and usually tries to put a positive spin to things. She also really loves wildlife, especially birds and fish. On the inside though, she's actually still very sad about her father's death and purposefully puts up her cheerful persona to hide it.
However, she isn't afraid to fight back if she needs to. During the Knights' war with L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N., she was very dedicated to bringing justice to the monsters that killed her father, and this sense of justice has stuck with her throughout the rest of the series.
History[edit | edit source]
Pre-Series[edit | edit source]
Created by Dr. Schtroheim Heinrich, Lorelai was created to be a robot that would be strong enough to take on any opponent, even the legendary Super Robots. However, as he kept this part of her a secret for her first few weeks of life, Lorelai believed he built her simply to have a little companionship in his life (most likely because of how ugly he was). From there, she worked to clean the house and went to a local school while their father was too busy with "personal projects", as he put it.

Abilities & Equipment[edit | edit source]
Without her armor, Lorelai has the abilities of a standard civilian-type android (as in, not many).
- Enhanced Strength/Agility
While not as "super" in strength as others, Lorelai is strong enough to lift most heavy objects.
- Hyper-Sensitive Hearing
Lorelai's hearing can be amplified by 1000 times.
Danube Armor[edit | edit source]
By removing the bow in her hair, Lorelai is able to summon a suit of armor constructed of Super Alloy Z. It covers her entire body, except for her face and upper arms, and her hair stretches out into a long pony tail. When dormant, it is colored black, but when Lorelai puts in on, it turns blue like the Danube waterways that Dr. Heinrich always admired.
- Jet Boosters
Lorelai's armor has several jet boosters stored in its feet that allow it to fly short distances.
- Super Strength
- Pony Tail
Lorelai's hair "converts" into a long pony tail that extends from the back of her helmet, and is composed of a strong, thin metal that can be used as an extra appendage or a whip. It can even cut some materials.
- Photon Beam
Lorelai is able to fire a laser from the bulb at the top of her helmet.
- German Blizzard
Lorelai is able to generate bursts of freezing cold winds from her wrists by having the two fold out into fans. She's able to a strong enough blast from one hand alone, but she can a much stronger burst, the eponymous "German Blizzard", by clasping both of her hands together, creating an enormous frosty torrent.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Lorelai loved her father greatly, despite his rather scary appearance and some of his rather crude methods, and how often he would distance himself to continue his work on Danube. When he told her the real reason for her creation, she was naturally very scared at first, least of all with how her father made it seem like that was the only reason she was born, but when he died soon after, she was more than willing to sacrifice her old, peaceful life as a normal girl to protect the beautiful world her father loved.
Rosy[edit | edit source]
Lorelai and Rosy quickly became friends over their shared histories, like the loss of their fathers, their expectations for them, and their desire to pay L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. back for taking them away.
As one of the first people she met when she was able to enter the outside world, Lorelai and Usagi quickly became friends. As the two are some of the youngest members of the team, the two became very close as they continued to help the other Knights battle the forces of evil.
Emily[edit | edit source]
Though she was scared of him at first due to his demonic appearance, Lorelai got over it relatively quickly when she learned that Tom was just a pretty chill guy (y'know, when he wasn't infuriated beyond belief).
Despite being the ones she was created to do battle with (well, their Mazingers, at the very least), Lorelai ended up forming pretty decent friendships with both Koji and Tetsuya.
Catra[edit | edit source]
Atros[edit | edit source]
As the men who took her father from her, Lorelai has a strong hatred for the evil organization.
As another ice user, Lorelai and Killer Frost have a semi-rivalry (though it was hard to take seriously with how little Frost seemed to care about... well, most things in general).
Notes[edit | edit source]
Lorelai's character model is based off of her appearance in Mazinger Editon Z: The Impact, but has been modified to have lines on her arm and leg joints, similarly to other android characters in KotM. However, her winter outfit is taken from her 70's anime counterpart.
The biggest change to Lorelai's character is how the Danube, called the Danube α1, was actually a kikaiju (or mechanical monster), around the size of Mazinger Z, as a way to repay the original Mazinger Z's main villain, Dr. Hell, for bringing him back to life. This has been changed to giving her a simple armor upgrade, similarly to Emily. Plus, without Hell's influence on this version of the story, it wouldn't really make any sense on how he would get enough material to create a giant robot. The armor's design uses the original α1 character model from Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact as a basis, with changes including putting Lorelai's face in place of the original Danube's (obviously), replacing the original design's head tentacle whip with a long pony tail (which is also partially inspired by Dr. Hell's Gamia Q android assassins), and instead of a duplicate of Lorelai's face (it's anime, go with it), she has cloth around her wrists that replicates her hair, similarly to some gauntlets used for armor in ancient times, that fold out into fans for her to use her ice powers.
