StratoSpear, I'm kinda curious about the Minerva. Is it like a "hybrid" version of the IS?

Something like that. It's basically a physical suit of armor but most of its arsenal are stored digitally like those on an IS unit.

So, apparently, the Minerva and the Silverback are the same in some ways.
Spoiler for Silverback Data Disc (From Ch. 4):


Now, it does have some sort of energy shield that can regenerate, right? What will happen if the energy shield depletes? Does the Minerva shut down like the IS?

1. Nice Guy, but sometimes sarcastic or deadpan.

- If someone close to him threatened
- If a girl/woman flaunting their superiority JUST BECAUSE of social stigma. (though this may not present in the dream, it was a perfect normal universe after all)
3. While not exactly bad at numbers and calculation (actually a physic genius), he's better to grasp things if he saw of experience things empirically (see Sacred Twins chapter 4, 7 and 8 for example).

@ Eras

I'm very sorry, that's just a joke.

Regenerative shield, yes. But the Minerva does not shut down when the shield is depleted.

This is why Inami goes about nearly getting killed during his fight with the Silver Gospel and when he destroys the warhead before it hit the Academy.

@ Senpai - Would human fights be odd to see in an IS fanfic?

Oh well in that case I guess it's ship sunk then.

Or is it?

Regarding the human fights though, I actually plan to have at least one of those.

So the Minerva has a regernarive shield, but doesn't shut down when depleted...

Okay, that's one thing that sets the Silverback and Minerva apart (sort of).

What about armor plating and "bulkiness"?

Odd? Dunno, if anything, fans LIKED human fights, as seen from Doukuganryuu reviews.

I think mine is the only one that has that out of all the IS fanfics currently in the archive (as life and death goes).

@ Box - Besides, she's my older sister, not my twin.

@ Senpai - Irish's fight scenes tend to be human based. For example: His first fight after getting captured is a struggle on a falling airplane with a PT pilot.

@ Jak - Yeah, but you still have power armor and stuff, I'm using pure human combat.

Uh, the armor they used were not power armor.

The Silverback combat armor is the power armor.

Well the only human combat In Sacred Twins so far is Ichika vs Laura, Madoka vs Laura, and as of Chapter 12, Ichika & Dan versus a pack of gangster. Rather than systematic fight, all of them feels more like an all-out brawl.

@ Jak - I meant more physical combat. Like grapple fights, struggles, punch outs. That sort of thing.

@ Senpai - What do you mean systematic fight?

Here's a sketch of the Minerva.

Armor-wise, it's a grade below titanium alloy but pretty resilient nonetheless, even against beam/energy weaponry.

Bulk-wise, since the armor is present mainly on where the main body parts are, leaving little to no protection on the joints(elbows, knees etc.), the pilot can pretty much move around and even run with the Minerva on.

Even with it's upgrade, the Vanguard Unit, it doesn't hamper armor movement one bit.

The final battle of my fic is a human fight, after their mechs have automatically switched to closed form due to damage, the enemy rushes in only to get a faceful of falcon punch courtesy of our protagonist...who is a girl.
