The Soleares is predominantly red with black coloring on its limbs and grey on the major joints. This unit is considered moderately thin and possessing weaker armor, but possesses numerous gatling guns, located on its knees and forearms. Numerous green jewels are prominent on its upper arms and head, and its design emphasizes maneuverability by having very flexible, almost completely uncovered joints. Oddly, its feet resemble high-heeled shoes, possibly mimicking a flamenco dancer.
The Alegrías keeps the same color scheme and appears much bulkier than its original form. The new armor pieces are also adorned with the green jewels, which now scatter all over the machine's body. Four wing-like protrusions are attached to the unit's shoulders, increasing its stabilization and agility. Additionally, two large drone-like weapons called Servants are docked on the rear of the unit's thighs, utilizing their thrusters to increase the unit's overall speed despite their extra weight.
A machine designed for reconnaissance, the AS-04 Soleares uses a variety of parts from various mass-produced models, combining some of the best parts from different lines to create a high-speed yet stealthy unit capable of taking on numerous attackers. The majority of its weapons are hidden in plain sight, such as using large armor pieces to create its Stealth Boomerang, and placing gatling guns at its knee joints. Additionally, its high flexibility allows it to survive in melee combat despite its relatively weaker armor. Additionally, it features a custom interface for Elma, allowing the artificial intelligence to control various aspects and effectively raise its attributes due to the higher processing speed and sensor input.
Its most prominent feature, however, is its defensive system known as the Prism Phantom. Utilizing a sophisticated optic-camouflage, it can render the unit completely invisible to radar, infrared and visual scanners. Additionally, it can reverse its polarity and blind enemy sensor systems, disorienting them for a time.
Selena Recital, the unit’s main pilot, would use the Soleares for both the Alpha Numbers and their enemies, as her loyalty wavered when she searched for the person responsible for killing her squadron members. Eventually, she would come across the person responsible, Spectra McCready, who would then gravely damage the unit in combat.
Fortunately, Alpha Numbers member, Tsugumi Takakura, would be able to repair and upgrade the machine into the AS-04R Alegrías by cannibalizing the Servant Module originally designed for the Huckebein MK III, as well as taking spare parts from the Vegalion. The Servants would augment the Alegrías considerably, adding more firepower as well as providing more targets to further confuse the enemy, while the Vegalion’s parts would increase its mobility. By installing the Prism Phantom on the Servants, the power of the system allows the modules to create temporary holograms in the Alegrías’ image around each Servant. While Elma is still fully capable of taking over certain control functions of the unit, most of its concentration would now be over this new system.
Selena would utilize the Alegrías for the remainder of the war on the side of the Alpha Numbers, culminating with the defeat of Keisar Ephes over the home world of the Ze Balmary Empire. However, after the war, both Selena Recital, Elma, and the Alegrías mysteriously disappears.
