The LV-ZGMF-X23S Vent Saviour is a variant of the ZGMF-X23S Saviour developed by the mysterious organization known as Librarian Works. It first appeared in the photo series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED VS Astray. It is initially piloted by a carbon clone of Goud Veia but is later given to Elijah Kiel.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Vent Saviour is a rare MS for Librarian Works as unlike the others, it is based on one of ZAFT's Second Stage mobile suit. Development of it is made possible as an organization that is close to the Librarian is in possession of the ZGMF-YX21R Proto-Saviour. The wings, originally on Amfortas beam cannons, are moved to Vent Saviour's shoulders. This provides the Vent Saviour with better mobility and agility when compared to the ZGMF-X23S Saviour or the original ZGMF-YX21R Proto-Saviour, especially in MS mode. Weapon wise, Vent Saviour has the same armaments as the Proto-Saviour. Like all other Librarian mobile suits, Vent Saviour is equipped with hardpoints for Striker Packs on its back. One of the Striker Packs that is extremely useful for Vent Saviour is the "Maga no Ikutachi" Striker as the Mirage Colloid particles on it can be manipulated to reduce air resistance [1]. Even with the Striker pack, Vent Saviour can still transform between its MS mode and MA mode.[2]. After the MS was passed over to Elijah, its control was customized to suit his preference.


  • MMI-GAU25A 20mm CIWS
Standard shell firing "close in weapons system" mounted in the mobile suits head and is designed to shoot down small fast moving targets such a missiles or fighter jets.
  • MA-M941 "Vajra" beam saber
The only close combat armament of the Vent Saviour are two MA-M941 "Vajra" beam sabers. Originally stored in the shoulders of the Proto-Saviour, the "Vajra" are moved to the backpack to make room for the wings.
  • MA-BAR70 high-energy beam rifle
The Vent Saviour can be equipped with a MA-BAR70 high-energy beam rifle, which is usable in both MS and MA modes. When in MA mode, it is mounted on the shoulder.
  • MMI-GAU2 "Picus" Machine Guns
Shell firing weapons of the Vent Saviour's MA mode and serve the same purpose as the CIWS. The "Picus" machine guns are located on the backpack cowl that covers the Vent-Saviour's head in mobile armor mode.
  • M106 "Amfortas" plasma beam cannon
Vent Saviour's most powerful weapons, the cannons are attached to the backpack and are movable. When in MS mode, the cannons swing under the arms to be fired, while in MA mode the cannons always face forward.
  • MA-7B "Super Fortis" beam cannon
The MA-7B "Super Fortis" beam cannons are beam rifle-caliber beam cannons that are mounted above the "Amfortas" plasma beam cannons.
  • MMI-RD11 aerodynamic shield
The MMi-RD11 shield is a defensive armament that can block multiple attacks, especially beam attacks that the VPS armor cannot block. The shield possesses an aerodynamic form so as to not hinder the mobile suit in flight. In mobile armor mode the shield is attached to the unit's torso.

Special Equipment & Features


As members of the Serpent Tail (except Gai) was in Orb, the Librarian Works sent out Goud Veia piloting the unit to attack them. Goud Veia announces to Elijah his arrival, badly shocking him. The meeting was interpreted by the arrival of Orb's Murasame and he left, promising that he will be back [3]. A few days later, they met again and a battle soon started as Elijah refused to join him. During the battle, Elijah successful tricked Goud Veia and landed a few attacks on Vent Saviour, slightly damaging it. Pleased that Elijah's skill had improved, Goud Veia then tricked him into opening the cockpit door and hijacked Elijah's customised ZAKU so that he could escape from Librarian Works. He left Elijah with the Vent Saviour so that he could better deal with Librarian Works [4]. After the battle, Serpent Tail salvaged the Vent Saviour and brought it to Lowe Guele for repairs and to customize it for Elijah's use. Elijah later used the Vent Saviour equipped with Maga no Ikutachi Striker to assist the defected Lily clone in her battle against 4 Nebula Blitz [5].

Notes & Trivia

  • The name, like all of Librarian's mobile suits, is derived from a meteorological event, in this case it is the French word vent meaning "wind".
  • In the story Vent Saviour can transform with the Striker Pack on, but the model kit cannot replicate this ability.
