The MU (Multi-Use) Androids are a group of characters from Super Dimensional Century Orguss and are a group of minor characters in The Knights of the Multiverse, introduced in Season 1. They are a line of mass-produced androids built in the form of 11 year-old girls created by the EDC that serve on their ships and bases to perform many services, including to act as repair crew for mechs & other electronic systems, medical staff for crew members and pilots, communications, radar, and other general technical support, even sometimes acting as reserve pilots. Several of them serve onboard the ship used by the Knights the Glomar.

Pre-Series[edit | edit source]
No one outside the EDC knows who originally designed the MU android models, but what is known is that they were originally and modeled after the creator's young daughter, who died tragically many years ago. The EDC then mass-produced the design, and even kept them looking like children, presumablely out of respect for their designer, hinting that he was probably someone highly respected within the organizaton. They are normally dressed in similarly-designed uniforms, speak in high-pitched voices, and are normally used to man the bridges of ships and bases because of their analytical & techonological talents.

All the MU Androids are very technologically sound, being able to operate most technology (old and new) with ease, and when working together, can complete construction on a mech suit in record time. They also have a large variety of medical supplies.

Notes[edit | edit source]
The name MU comes from the original Orguss from a nation of the same name, which was a nation made up entirely of robots that came from another world that was forced to fuse with the Earth after the detonation of the series' Time/Space Bomb. The robots were originally built by the humans of their world but revolted and wiped out their former masters. They were bent on destroying all sentient organic beings, and even robots that resemble them.
The six main MU androids that appear regularly in KotM have their appearances based off of the 32nd episode of the original Orguss, "Outsider", where the "camera" passes by several dead/deactivated copies of Mohm in different colors. The character that Lisa is based off of a uniquely colored one has a single line in the episode before being (presumably) killed by an explosion. However, several of the others have their hairstyles, and even the colors for their dresses and some of their personalities, based off of some of the other female Orguss characters.
All of the characters' names (and some of their personalitites) come from several characters from Orguss's sister show, Super Dimension Fortress Macross. In particular, the characters that acts as officers on the show's main bridges. A full list of them (and other Macross operators) can be seen here. However, their role is also based off of the 100-Series Observational Realians from Xenosaga, another series of young looking "androids" based off of a deceased daughter.
