Design and DevelopmentEdit
The Silverhawk's creator, Yui Ichimaru, designed the Knightmare with several unusual features such as the extremely large shoulderpads where several newly developed weapon called an E-Knife (Electrical Knife) lie hidden as a last defense. The Silverhawk is also equipped with two pallet rifles on both lower arms, and a grenade launcher on it's back. It does not possess Slash Harkens but instead uses, much like the Vincent, two poles that can be merged to form a long spear.
Instead of using Sakuradite as its' powersource, the Silverhawk needs to "breathe in" oxygen which gets transported via several small bendable pipes to a red orb located in the chest, known as the Core. If the Core at any moment is severely damaged the Knightmare is set to selfdestruct within 30 seconds at such a high temperature that there are no remains to be salvaged from the wreck.
The most special feature on the Silverhawk is that the pilot's mind will meld together with the system controls, much like the Sigfried, but with more finesse. The requirement for this to work is that the pilot needs a synchronization rate of over 65% with the Core, or else the Knightmare won't activate at all. A specially developed suit called the Nerve Connection Suit, or NCS, has been created to make this feature a reality.
Rakshata equips the Silverhawk at one point a much simpler version of the Absolute Defense Field at Zero's request, although she speculated why the Silverhawk would need it with its already powerful Blaze Luminous.

The Silverhawk serves a special purpose in the Rebirth Project, acting as the connection between the Gate of Utopia and the Vessel of Eve. Together the two Knightmares will fuse their Cores, creating apathway for Eve to enter in order for her to bless Humanity.
