The Golden Seven is a title given to the 7 Valvrave pilots in the far future. They include Shoko Sashinami, Saki Rukino, Akira Renbokoji, Jin Hinomoto, Nao Ota, and two currently unknown pilots who have all been members of the Third Galactic Empire since it was established. It would also appear that the Original 5 Valvraves had their Black armor pieces replaced with gold ones. It is currently unknown how this came to be.
