Veteran Ex-Military Grunts

Trained in some of the most elite militaries in the world, the Soldiers are probably the best combat troops to have ever set foot on a battlefield. Many were the original recipiants of cybernetic limb technology, as well as many of the reflex boost systems so commonly seen today on the modern street. Some were even the guiney pigs for various chemical and genetic experimentations designed to create the "perfect soldier". Many of these X-Soldiers didn't survive the conversion process.

On top of it all, the nations that trained the Soldiers can now barely afford to feed them--let alone equip them properly. After defending their governments during the riots and revolutions after the gate Incident and during the Titan War, many were simply discharged and left to their own devices. Disillusioned, some turned to violence--becoming petty warlords and vandals. Others gave up on life, slipping into alchoholism and drug abuse. But the majority attempted to maintain the military life as best they could, joining mercenary teams and corporate armies. While not as equipped for the deadly world of the urban jungle as well as their cousins the Assassins, the Soldiers are still some of the best and the most dangerous individuals around.

"I was in the war on Titan. You said that you didn't need comrades... but I'm attracted to that word... to the point of tears... On Titan, we were all comrades... We fought in the war together, on that desert battlefield of death."

Titan Veteran


"Have you ever had a dream where you're aware and you know you are in the middle of a dream but can't wake up? That's when it started. From when I was still on Titan. There were no opposing armies in that battle. They were all killed to test the weapons. I was used as a guinea pig."
