So, this is a Golem loosely based off of the Giant Robot Anime "Mobile Suit Gundam". I was inspired to create this and several other Golems due to being a fan of that Anime series. The main insperation for this one, though, comes from the Offshoot series "Gundam Seed". In that series, there was a "Team" of three Gundams whos pilots didn't work well together, to the point of attacking each other instead of their enemies! The "Unhinged Tactics" trait is based off this "Effective Tactic".
