Security Team


Engineering Component

The Engineering Component is the Containment Department responsible for the construction and upkeep of Initiative sites all over the world, and the ones beyond it, as well as managing their infrastructure. Being also the ones responsible for bringing the design plans of Prolab to reality with the greatest of detail, ensuring no mistakes when it comes to the containment of anomalies. They are the greatest minds the Initiative has to offer, and they make display of it in every single thing they build.

Protocol Laboratory

The Prolab, as it is colloquially called, is a specialized research and bureaucratic department responsible for creating effective Containment Protocols for ANs. A mix of scientists, engineers, and liaison officers, the Prolab has an equal hand in the construction blueprint for a cell and the highly specific instructions given to site guards.

Frequently working with specialists from Research, security experts from Recovery, and engineers from the Component, the Prolab represents the heart of their Committee's mission: to build the shackles so Research can do its job and Recovery's effort and blood is not wasted.

Initiative Security Team

The IST, also known as Initiative Security Team, is the defense wing in the Security Team responsible for the general defense, security, and coordination of logistics within the Initiative's sites, mobile command centers, and listening stations. The IST serves as a rapid response force in the event of an internal or external threat within Initiative installations, being able to rapidly organize its manpower within minutes of an occurring incident. All IST personnel are additionally trained to specialize in various combat and support roles.

Personnel who excel in their duties may be provided various opportunities to advance in rank through available induction courses in order to obtain non-commissioned or commissioned officer designations. Upon graduation, personnel will be prepared to issue and relay commands to subordinate personnel and assume control over individual sections of garrisoned units.

While senior commissioned officers are charged with the administration of individual IST garrisons at their respective facilities, all IST personnel adhere to a centralized command structure, with central command being the senior-most platform. All orders pertaining to the function of the IST and its personnel are issued or modified by central command and serve as the final authority.

Test Subject Resources

TS Resources manages all housing, acquisitions, and logistics of subjects for involuntary testing, used for impromptu emergency disposal of dangerous or anomalous material, serving in investigative operations with unknown, potentially lethal factors, and for general Protectorate fodder. The TS' prime directive is limiting undue and inhumane use of TSs (Test Subjects), and ensuring all efforts are made to preserve their safety and well beings.


  • Disposition: Approves TS requests and handles TS safety-assurance
  • Upkeep: Maintains the living space and morale of TSs
  • Acquisitions: Acquires new TSs through various external sources
  • Logistics: Transports TSs between sites and locations

Department of Communications

To truly secure its independence from powerful national governments and rival organizations, the Initiative requires rapid and utterly secure communication links between its scattered presence on every continent of the Earth - and beyond. In reality, this translates to a shadow network of cables and satellites, robust and advanced, able to weather anomalous disasters and the best efforts of rival spies.

The Department of Communications oversees the maintenance and construction of this vital web; serving as technical consultants in every Site, working with the Engineering Component in the field, and obfuscating the records whenever a surveyor or diver finds a comms cable where none should be.

Keeping the phone and data lines open at any cost; often unsung and unknown, the Comms Department knows the absolute vitality of its work.

Containment Tone

Security Team has two Tones; one for the Initiative Security Team, and another for the Protocol Laboratory.

Catalogued incidents may involve one or more anomalies, and can be written after they have been resolved, or while they are ongoing. The main portion of the article is a time-line of the event, in which individual occurrences are detailed, and is immediately followed by a report of damages, casualties and costs incurred.
