In-Game Biography[]

This reverse-joint leg pilot from Rayleonard utilizes a variety of powerful boosters in a unique 3-dimensional combat style. Widely known for using experimental new parts.


Zanni is a talented pilot who operates alongside Berlioz and the two other Lynx, Unseel and P. Dam, in an elite squad devoted to carrying out Rayleonard's wishes. His NEXT utilizes experimental parts such as the EUPHORIA PA rectifier from Akvavit and the ALICIA reverse joint legs from Rayleonard. These have tended to give him the advantage needed to square off against other top class pilots. He fights in the Battle at the Abandoned City with his squad against the enemy Nexts, Leonhardt and Mido Auriel. Together with his unit, they defeat the two Lynx before being attacked by Anatolia's Mercenary who was sent as a reinforcement. After a prolonged encounter, and against all odds, the Mercenary defeats the four high ranking Originals, Zanni included. This action would bring about the downfall of Rayleonard at the hand of the Mercenary and Aspina's Joshua O'Brien.

NEXT Roughcut[]


NEXT Roughcut

Designed by Rayleonard's engineers, the purple and beige Roughcut utilizes parts that, at the time, were considered highly experimental, including the 04-Alicia reverse-joint legs from Rayleonard, and Euphoria PA rectifiers, from Akvavit. Roughcut is also equipped with an 04-Marve assault rifle (Rayleonard), an Antares laser rifle (Melies), and a Lamia AS missile launcer (Leonemeccanica). Designed for mid-range air combat, Roughcut is utilized very effectively by Zanni, who utilizes his NEXT to fight alongside a fellow Rayleonard LINX, #01 Berlioz, and two other LINX in a highly elite squad.
