Introduction The Militia

The Frontier Militia represents the military arm of the Frontier systems’ territorial defense pact. The Militia is a loosely governed mishmash of homesteaders, bandits, mercenaries, and pirates, all rising up as “citizen soldiers” when the need arises. Many homesteaders have taken on a “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” attitude regarding working alongside different criminal groups. Naturally the people in this melting pot don’t always see eye to eye on how to deal with the IMC’s exploitation of the Frontier, but they are unified in fighting against it.

The Militia is loosely divided into Brigades. Each Brigade is responsible for fighting in an assigned section of Frontier territory, which might span as far as several planetary systems. The Marauder Corps (M-COR) is a small part of a much larger Brigade tied to the Freeport System. Although some Brigades are little more than vast pirate organizations, the Militia has enough resources to be a real obstacle to the IMC’s ambitions on the Frontier.

The Militia often claims that direct action against the IMC is in the best interests of the homesteaders whom they allegedly represent, but not everyone on the Frontier sees it that way.

Key Characters

MacAllan

“They’ll call us terrorists or worse, but we can’t win playing by their rules.” — MacAllan

A highly decorated veteran of the Titan Wars, MacAllan served as the executive officer of the IMS Odyssey, under the command of Vice Admiral Marcus Graves. The Odyssey’s mission was part of a peacekeeping operation on the Frontier for the IMC. Official IMC reports indicate that MacAllan led a mutiny aboard the Odyssey fifteen years ago, citing numerous grievances with the IMC’s treatment of Frontier citizens. However, these reports have not been proven, in the absence of the ship’s flight data recorder, which was lost when MacAllan and his people escaped with the Odyssey and disappeared into an uncharted sector of the Frontier.

Bish

“We traced the modification. Hammond Robotics has a weapons division?” — Bish

The name Bish is short for Bishamon, the mythological god of warriors within the Japanese Seven Gods of Fortune. Bish is an IMC-trained electrical engineer, born and raised on Earth. After getting screwed over by the IMC on a Frontier job placement that cost him all his savings just to move out there, he ended up in the right place at the right time—the notorious “Bish bar brawl”—to take the Militia’s timely offer of employment. Bish now serves as a Combat Intel Specialist, remote hacking into IMC systems during combat on behalf of ground forces, tracking mission progress, and giving tactical guidance to Pilots on the ground.

Sarah

“You saw those machines fight. We need an answer and we need it fast.” — Sarah

As a child, Sarah lost several close members of her family to incidents in which the IMC displaced Frontier citizens by force. As a result, she vowed to take revenge on the IMC at every possible opportunity, refusing to rest until they have been removed from the Frontier. For most of her career, she served in Covert Operations for the Militia, before moving into the command ranks of the Militia’s Marauder Corps. Her long list of successful attacks on IMC installations landed her on the IMC’s High Value Target List, where she remains listed as one of the 50 most dangerous Militia operatives still at large.

Barker

“Wait! We have to go back. I left my shotty at the bar. I ain’t leaving town without it!” — Barker

Barker served with MacAllan during the Titan Wars—a series of conflicts within the Core Systems many years ago. Their operations during the Titan Wars have been chronicled in many historical records, and have formed the basis of current IMC counterinsurgency doctrine. A tremendously gifted Pilot of both Titans and all things flying, Barker is rumored to have adjusted poorly to life outside of combat, sinking into a deep depression and becoming even more of an alcoholic than he was during active service.
