The Sutherland Custom was a machine featured in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Lost Stories. It was built by the Advanced Envoy Special Engineering Corps as a Knightmare for the use of their new recruit.

Design and Development[]

The Sutherland Custom is based on the original specs and design of the 5th Gen Sutherland, but customized to satisfy the piloting skills of Garfield. The Sutherland was upgraded with all of Camelot's prototype and latest technologies into the Sutherland. Despite the Lancelot being a very highly advanced Knightmare, Camelot doesn't have enough budget to produce anything more than one unit, so to supplement the amount of knightmares for the pilot and its reserves, Camelot has decided to use the Sutherland as means for reserve unit with its armaments being upgraded with all of A.S.S.E.C. special weapons like the VARIS Rifle.

In addition to the armaments being upgraded, the Sutherland Custom was designed to move and fight on par with the Gloucesters, a knightmare specific for close combat. The Sutherland Custom was designed to be a personal close-quarter to mid-range fighting, as it has a Varis to cover its range, given that it is required to be placed in a power tube to supply the rifle's output. Even so, the Sutherland Custom is a knightmare to be feared as it can go up against dozens of Burai and fight on equal grounds with the Guren Type-02.

Operational History[]

Following ASEEC's acquisition of a new test pilot Warrant Officer Garfield, Lloyd Asplund who saw the testing of Garfield recruitment, notice the Sutherland would not keep up with there skills similar to Suzaku but due too budget constraints could not created an entirely new unit. This resulted in the Sutherland Custom. It's first sortie would be during the Black Knights false flag operation to capture Suzaku. Garfield would engage the Black Knights and fight the Guren. Garfield who didn't want to raised suspicion allowed Kallen to destroy it's left arm. Upon hearing the orders to destroy both the Black Knights and Suzaku, Garfield would race to save both of them by shooting down the missiles. Upon the arrival of the Avalon with the Gawain shooting it's Hadron Cannon they would retreat too the Avalon.

It would be sent out again upon Garfield request to look for Suzaku and in turn Zero and Kallen. They would engage an unknown Knightmare Frame. The Sutherland Custom would be disabled with Garfield injured in the process who would be later rescued by CC who stopped the unknown Knightmare Frame.

It's final sortie would be during the Black Knight attack the First Assault on Tokyo Settlement. A group of Black Knights disregarded their orders to follow Urabe and instead attempt to take over DGE Corp, only for Garfield to stop the attack. Later Garfield who planned to rejoin the Black Knights would be stopped the same unknown Knightmare again. The Sutherland Custom would finally be destroyed except for the cockpit. It's data would be used in the creation of Aroundight.
