These dissidents later formed the Old Human Faction in order to eliminate the Innovators. In terms of the ELS' opinions towards the battle with Old Human Faction, they were pretty impartial towards participation and rejection.
Some GNMA-Y0002V Gadelaza units of the Old Human faction are piloted by Pseudo-Innovators to battle against the Innovators. These pilots were created as a byproduct of restrainment, forceful cooperation and enhancement via super solider knowhow.
