Ingrid was an ancient EX-Type Zero, posthumously evaluated as SS-Class, that was produced by Queen E-12. It initially appeared in CC 233 wielding the Phenomenon Weapon Morglay which was the first recorded use of such weapon by Beasts.
Ingrid does not have an appearance in the series but was referenced several times. Ingrid was specifically mentioned in ME-0 (Part 19) Chapter 21 in relation to Morglay. Admiral Jack Norton also compared Ingrid to the Ex-Type Zeroes Satan and the twin Cross Eye Alpha and Beta in ME-0 (Part 25) Chapter 27.
By CC 233, the AE was suffering from a series of severe losses in the Human-Beast conflict under their Great War initiative. To protect humanity's survival, the AE envisioned an alternative escape plan that would have all humans permanently be housed in the giant colony battleship "Ion" which would be on a continuous travel avoiding Beasts.

Ingrid attacked Ion and the AE committed in defending the colony ship. Fortunately, the attack came before the civilian population was able to board it. AE was helplessly incapable of neutralizing the EX-Type Zero even with its entire military strength. The nascent Knight Order dispatched a timely and much-needed reinforcement from Core Temple and the Knights were able to repel Ingrid. This was the Knight's first combat deployment outside of Arin. The battle concluded as a pyrrhic victory since Ion was destroyed at the end. Still, humanity greatly celebrated the fact that the Knights were able to defeat an EX-Type Zero.
In CC 234, AE and Knight Order reached an amiable agreement on mutual aid and cooperation. This led to the first AE-Knights join operation targeting E-12. Ingrid was slain during this human counter-attack.
Despite mistrust and suspicion, the imposing threat of Ingrid highlighted the importance of a united stand to deter human extinction. Thus, Ingrid's attack served as an impetus for the start of mutual cooperation between AE and Knights that would continue until the Age of Humans.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Not much is known of Ingrid however it was noted to be the first Beast to have used a Phenomenon Weapon. It was also the very first time that humanity discovered the existence of such super weapons. Ingrid's Morglay was taken by Knight Order and kept within the secured armory of Core Temple.
