Origin[edit | edit source]
Xera, codenamed "Galick Zero" was originally a human modified with mechanical parts from the Galick series, to serve as an elite assault unit for military purposes, her name was taken from the cancelled military project with the same name.

It is believed that Xera is a friend of Genevieve Fern, although little details are revealed about this.
The project Xera lost support of the SEITEN because of the high numbers of mutated and deceased individuals product of the misuse of radiation and robotic technologies, it was finally discovered by the government and was shut down by the just elected president Charles Mourne, thanks to Genevieve's investigation.
The project was scraped by the paramilitary group and restarted with the name "Eureka", using now more advanced technologies and the Knightframe Series as model.
