Background

"To lie is to war with trolls in the holds of the heart and mind." 

"Peer Gynt," 1876 play written by Henrik Ibsen. Motto of the Boyg.



There is no better feeling than the one that overwhelms you when everything fits together, when suddenly everything makes sense and you feel that you have accomplished your purpose; a moment of clarity in which you realize that all the months of hard work and dedication have been worthwhile. For Boyg Soldiers, that moment comes when their nervous system finally synchronizes with the receptors in their armor, and their reflexes and their ability to execute ballistic movements are enhanced to levels well above the human standard. That's the precise moment when they actually become real Boy Soldiers, and they're able to move in their colossal armor with the sinuosity and reptilian speed that give them their name. Although according to many people, what really connects them with this creature of Scandinavian folklore is their monstrous quality, because none of them could be considered a normal human.


After the NeoColonial Wars, the PanOceanian Military Complex High Command commissioned the Military Development Office (MDO) to launch a program to upgrade their servo-powered armor in an attempt to undermine Yujingyu industry's primacy in this field. However the MDO encountered numerous obstacles that they tried to overcome through reverse engineering. Nonetheless, due to the secret nature of the StateArmy's developments, the MDO engineers had a whole series of knowledge gaps that prevented them from making progress. For this reason, after an unofficial request to the Hexahedron, an Indigo named Quinn exfiltrated Dr. Xiang Hua, a Yujingyu scientist who was an expert in the field. The doctor was taken to Ulves|or Station, a high-tech research center in a secret location in Svalarheima where, among other subjects, VoodooTech was studied. However, despite the significant PanOceanian breakthroughs in haptic technology, their engineers were unable to replicate the finesse of Yujingyu systems, so they began to think outside the box. Instead of building a network of body sensors in the inner layer of the armor, they opted to tap into their candidates' Cubes, connecting them to the haptic system of the armored suit, thus improving response times. There has been significant improvement in their ability to evade imminent threats, as well as in the control and correction of automatic fire. To this end, candidates in excellent physical condition are sought and submitted to a classified Cube-modification program- which is probably also illegal with regard to international regulations on scientific research so no studies have been made public on the existence or non-existence of potential long-term side effects. There is some speculation about the marginal use of VoodooTech, an unsubstantiated claim, since PanOceania favors secrecy and would rather consolidate its leading position in cutting-edge technologies. However, PanOceanian engineers failed to reduce the overall size of the armor, as they were unable to replicate the compact Yujingyu systems, mainly due to the recoil compensators and the imminent-danger warning systems, as well as the environmental-adaptation module. The Boyg armor is a colossus that, despite its size, seems to defy nature with the speed of its reflexes, as unnatural as the modified troopers wearing it, who are always resolute, disciplined, and dangerous. But on a planet riddled with dangerous creatures and deadly enemies, which is worse: those monsters or the monster that frightens the other monsters? Because that's exactly what Boyg Soldiers are.[1]
