Bandai Namco recently went in-depth about the mobile caravan ‘Chrysanthemum’, which is one of the only safe ways to traverse the Ashlands. They also introduced Hilda Enriquez and Amy Chrysanthemum, the operators of the caravan that the protagonist and Hugo meet.
Amidst the expanding Ashlands, Caravans were developed quickly in order to have a safe method of transporting materials and supplies across ports. In the world of God Eater 3, Caravans stand as the only remaining lifeline for the human race at large. For these mobile fortresses, it is common to name the ship after its home port.
The Pennywort port Adaptive God Eaters, including the protagonist and Hugo, are out on a mission one day when an “Ash Tempest” occurs near Pennywort. With imminent destruction all but guaranteed, the protagonist’s group panics over how to save the people left behind, when they suddenly receive a message from a caravan, asking them to hunt an Aragami. As they accept this mission, the gears of fate begin to turn.
The caravan that appeared in front of the protagonist was the Chrysanthemum, a freighter caravan that excelled in speed, but had little-to-no troops and barely any combat ability.
