The Military Orders

The Military Orders are the ace up PanOceania’s sleeve. An overwhelming force made up of intrepid knights driven by religious fervor and ready to engage in close combat with the enemy. The Military Orders mean an absolute break from the usual combat style expected of the PanOceanian Military Complex, a trump card as unexpected as it is fearsome.

Achilles

“Draw near, that you may meet your doom the sooner” Achilles in the Iliad, Book XX

“The situation, in short, is this. I have just destroyed your escape module. You are trapped inside here with me. I am Achilles. And you are dead already.” Achilles, Second Ghost Conflict. Unauthenticated record, probable origin: Nomads Black Propaganda.

Achilles, the transliteration of Αχιλλεύς or Achileýs, was the greatest Greek hero, the finest of all warriors. Son of the Nereid, Thetis, and of Peleus, king of the Myrmidons of Phthia, in Thessaly, he was trained by a Phoenix and by the centaur Chiron. He took part in the Siege of Troy, in which his involvement was decisive, and was immortalized by Homer as the main character of the Iliad.

The experimental Project ‘Warrior’ was developed by ALEPH to offer the great powers a biosynthetic combat organism model able to provide the features of a TAG in a human-scale package. Gifted with an immense budget and requiring several years of research, the ‘Warrior’ Project produced the AR-1 prototype. A Lhost biosynthetic body, it contained enhanced artificial musculature, cybernetic micro-engines in all joints and a solidly reinforced skeleton, twice as dense as that of a human, composed of laminated calcium and TitaniumSupra®. All of this was controlled by a dual-control nervous system, accelerated and improved by experimental wetware, and shielded by subtle armored protection for both vital and non vital areas. A perfect body and a superb combat machine in human form. Nevertheless, attempts to download real personality Cubes to it were fruitless. The human brain was incapable of managing all the information supplied by the AR-1 Lhost body. ALEPH solved the problem by creating a new artificial personality, able to control the prototype. To give AR-1 an identity, the greatest warrior in history was needed. And it was Homer who provided it: Achilles, the irascible hero.

Moderators

“You never know what to expect when you arrest someone. This is Bakunin. You go out to patrol through the public areas. You approach a guy in a corner… and you have no idea what you are going to find. You cannot imagine the things we have seen. Here, you have to be continuously ready for everything…” Moderator Otto Gryc, interview for “Urban Pulse” Arachne street program.



The Moderators are the tactical police unit of Bakunin, providing a rapid response force for any crisis situation. They carry out military security roles, defensive combat operations, rearguard control tactics and antiterrorist missions. They are responsible for bolstering the security of Bakunin’s facilities when the threat level rises beyond the abilities of regular security forces, and to ensure the safety of any Priority-1 cargo on spaceships docked in Bakunin. In their role as a security and counter-insurgence force, they are more used to facing internal threats rather than external. However, the pressure of the so-called Social Energy of Bakunin and the peculiarity of its inhabitants, obliges the Moderators Corps to possess an astounding tactical flexibility. It is not recommended to consider them as a negligible paramilitary force. During the actions of the Equilibrium Phase and the Violent Intermission, they proved they constitute a very tough and effective combat resistance force.
