Pacific Rim (draft script)
In the original script for Pacific Rim, Tacit Ronin was one of two major Jaegers featured in the story written by Travis Beacham. Tacit Ronin was a Mark-2 Jaeger, piloted by Kaori and Duc Jessop, a husband and wife Jaeger pilot team, who are friends of the script's version of Mako Mori.
Tacit Ronin works in Beacham's script as a narrative foil to Gipsy Danger, an old decommissioned Mark-1 Jaeger piloted by Raleigh Antrobus and Mako. As a Mark-2 Jaeger, Tacit Ronin is one of the most advanced Jaeger's still working with the paramilitary organization, the Combined Special Defense Corps (COSDEC). During the climax of the script, Tacit Ronin takes on and kills three Category V Kaiju, Scunner, Pharaoh, and Tengu. While the Jaeger sustains grave damages, it and its pilots survive the ordeal.
