The Zy-98 Shadow is a third generation Arm Slave operated by Amalgam and Soviet Union. Similar to the Rk-92 Savage, the Zy-98 lacks a Lambda Driver but serves as Amalgam's answer to the M9 Gernsback.


The Shadow is an Arm Slave developed by the USSR to succeed the aging Savage, In terms of weapons layout, the Shadow has no defined weapons payload as its seen throughout the series operating many different weapons (Some but not limited to: a Gatling gun, pistols, and semi-automatic). however the Shadow does utilize Electronic Concealment Systems (ECS) similar to the M9 Gernsback.

By the time of the first series, Amalgam operates at least one Shadow (as seen in the usage of Zaied) and a second operated by the Xia Yu sisters

Operational History

The Shadow seems to be operated by Amalgam's more talented pilots, this can at least be said in the first series, as the only ones to operate the Plan-1056 Codarl are Gauron and Gates. The Shadow by the second series however seems to have replaced the Savage entirely. Moreover, talented AS pilots seem to operate the standard Codarl while the "aces" (such as Gates) of Amalgam operate the Plan-1058 Codarl-i (better known as the Venom) and standard Codarl. While not equipped with a Lambda Driver, the Shadow is a formidable opponent, as seen in the Afghan desert, in which Zaied destroys nearly all of Bill's M9 squad single-handedly. However when fighting the superior ARX-7, Zaied is killed (though not without significant difficulty.)

At the last arc of the novel, we can see that USSR has started to deploy this 3rd generation AS, when several battle groups engage the forces of Amalgam that had at the time hijacked a nuclear missile base in Afghanistan. The groups were wiped out.
