Database[edit]

Episode I

KOS-MOS

An armored female android developed by the interstellar conglomerate, Vector Industries.

She is comprised entirely of mechanical parts, a rarity in an age of advanced Realian technology. The basic tenet to which she adheres to is based on logic, probability, and completion of her mission above all else. She also unconditionally protects Shion, her creator.

She is equipped with a "simulated personality OS" to aid in comunication, and though her speech conveys her role as an android in service to humans, her tendency to put logic and probability first makes her quite difficult to manage at times.

The name KOS-MOS is a general acronym to denote an anti-Gnosis tactical system. It stands for "KOS-MOS Obey Strategic Multiple Operations Systems."

Episode III

KOS-MOS [Archetype]

In Jungian psychology, the archetype is the portion of themind which is passed on hereditarily. It is said to be the model upon which the unconscious, instinctive workings of the mind are structured.

The archetype was designed and constricted for the purpose of monitoring Shion. All of irts functionality was contained within the core unit, which was later recovered and installed in KOS-MOS.

Kevin, needing to die in front of Shion's eyes, had secretly installed a program into the archetype causing it to go out of control. The program was later engaged via the startup key which Kevin had given to Andrew.

KOS-MOS [Test Type]

The frame put together by Shion and the others after transplanting the core module of the partially-destroyed Archetype into a spare frame. Christened KOS-MOS Version 1.

Partially in order to shake off memories of the incident when the Archetype went out of control, the exterior of this model's design was much closer to that of a human body. Several monitoring sensors were installed inside the body to record real-world data.

KOS-MOS [Combat Frame]

The frame created by the Second R&D Division on Second Miltia during the KOS-MOS OS tests. Vector staff refer to it as Version 2.

In order to shield her internal organs from shocks delivered to the outer body during combat, her body was filled with fluorescent blue anti-G gel. The Hilbert emission device, which had taken the form of a visor in Version 1, was miniaturized and installed into her forehead. Her body was designed with the implementation of the Tertiary Weapons System in mind; its resilience was increased dramatically.

KOS-MOS

A female-shaped battle android developed by the interplanetary conglomerate Vector Industries. A being created entirely from mechanical parts, exceptionally rare in this era of advanced Realian technology.

Prioritizing the three fundamentals of logic, efficiency, and duty, she protects her creator Shion unconditionally. She is equipped with an Artificial Personality OS" in hopes of facilitating smooth communication with others, and her tone is that of an android subservient to humans. As she is actually just prioritizing logic and efficiency, however, she can often be difficult to handle.

KOS-MOS is the term applied to the entire anti-Gnosis combat system; it stands for "Kosmos Obey Strategical Multiple Operation Systems."

Why were KOS-MOS's repairs that took place on the Miltia of the past within Shion's deep memory, a type of imaginary space, reflected in the real world? One reason is the fact that actions in one portion of the U.M.N., the deep memory--that is to say, the collective unconscious-- are equivalent to those in the real world according to one definition, where the difference is strictly subjective-- brought about by the observer's recognition of it as such.

Though KOS-MOS awakened as Mary Magdalene as a result of T-elos' defeat, Mary's original memories and characteristics have undergone a transformation, leading to the creation of an entirely new personality which is both Mary and not Mary at the same time. This is fundamentally analogous to Sakura's transformation into MOMO.

The battle over, KOS-MOS falls into an eternal sleepand drifts, like the passage of time, through the emptiness of space. A blue light penetrates her battered and faded figure. Perhaps that light will be the cause of a new awakening.

Freaks

KOS-MOS

ヴェクター第一開発局、対グノーシス専用ヒト型掃討兵器KP-X。Kosmos Obey Strategical Multiple Observation Systemが正式名称で、訳すと"秩序に従属する戦略的多目的体系"となり、頭文字を取ってKOS-MOSと呼ばれる。ヴェクター関係者を保護することが義務づけられ、戦闘など非常時に於いても、それは優先させる。感情プログラムは造物主たる人間が使いやすいようプログラムさせていると言いながら、素子構造は人脳を忠実に再現していることから、独自の感情が生まれる可能性が暗示させている。最大機能は"ヒルベルトエフェクト"で、グノーシスを固着化させる。開発計画担当幹技師であるシオンの知らない兵装(グノーシスを吸収する)があることや、シオンとは違う者の命令で行動している気配が感じられ、何か特別の任務を持っているとも思われる。

アーキタイプ

直訳すると「原型」となる。ケビンが造った二年前のKOS-MOSに対して「元型;原型」という意味合いで、このアーキタイプという言葉が使われている。ちなみにKOS-MOSのアーキタイプは、暴走事故が起こった際に破壊され損失したと、一般には認識されている。

Xenosaga I & II

KOS-MOS

星間コングロマリット「ヴェクター・インダストリー」によって開発された女性型戦闘用アンドロイド。

レアリエン技術の発達したこの時代において、全てが機械部品で構成されている希有な存在。

凡てに於いて論理、効率、任務の三原則を優先し、開発者であるシオンを無条件に護る為に行動する。

円滑に他者とのコミュニケーションをはかるた為『模擬人格OS』が実装されており、その口調は、人間という主に徒属しているアンドロイド的な喋り方だが、実際は論理や効率を優先させているだけなので扱いづあり時も多々ある。

KOS-MOSとは、対グノーシス用に開発された戦闘システムの総称であり、正式名称は"Kosmos Obey Strategical Multiple Operations Systems"直訳すると"秩序に徒属する戦略的多目的制御体系"となる。

KOS-MOS 【アーキタイプ】

日本語で「元型」と書く。

ユング心理学では、心の内に存在する遺伝的に受け継がれた部分である、無意識的、本能的に結びつく心の行動を構造化するための型とされる。

劇中では、ケビンの設計したKOS-MOSのプロトタイプにこの名が冠されている。

KOS-MOS 【模擬戦用筐体】

大破したアーキタイプから回収されたコアモジュールを予備のフレームに換装し、シオン達の手によって組み上げられた筐体。

バージョン1とも呼称される。

そのエクステリアには、アーキタイプ暴走事故の忌まわしい記憶を払拭する目的もあり、より生身に近いデザインが採用されている。
