Mordredモルドレツト (Morudoreto?) was one of the 25 main units comprising the network shell of Melchizedek, functioning as the self-destruct unit.

When Yoko uploaded Program Guinevere during Operation Maulwurf in ES 386, she triggered the full-on Gestalt breakdown of Melchizedek.[1][2] Mordred was activated while Arthur, the unifying unit, was lost. This led to the results of Operation Maulwurf being termed the Cam Ranh Tragedy.

Other uses[]

Mordred appears to be a Scrapyard company that is involved with motorball, as the name appears on the control tower of the Gregory Circuit.[3]


Each of the Melchizedek unit were named after a Knight of the Round Table. Mordred was named after King Arthur's illegitimate son by his half-sister Morgause.
