Background

Vaarso Battlespeak notation: Igao, “minus zero”, the impossible number. In the Neebab Numerology this artificial number represents the esoteric connection with the world of shadows and is the perfect name for a secret assassination unit. A negative zero can have several meanings in mathematics, one of them being the notion of approaching the figure zero from below. 

Profile: Few people see an Igao and live to tell about it. Usually they just glimpse a shiny blade, followed by the eternal darkness. This is because the Igao are the killing ghosts of the Tohaa Trident. This is a clandestine team conceived to perform black operations, which is the reason why their members cannot leave any trace or witnesses. Some say they are an urban legend, but not the professional intel analysts, who doubt an Igao can be defeated. As they say, the only way to survive one of these assassins is to always keep below his radar and never face him.


The Igao are the silent assassins of the Trident. They concentrate on asset removal and behind enemy lines activities by infiltrating the area of operations without the enemy noticing until it’s too late. Initially created as a black ops team, the Igao usually operate alone or in teams of two, with one operator providing backup from a safe spot should things go awry. The Igao were created within the New Model Army with the exact purpose of being used in the lush environment of Sareota, where their camouflage allowed them to easily penetrate enemy positions and cripple Fenrig command. They were instrumental in breaking the stalemate and initiating the Tohaa counter-offensive in the system. Close combat specialists, the Igao use naginata-like weapons alongside long-bladed stilettos to strike at their assigned target in a flurry of blows. As quickly as they appeared, they then retreat to the shadows to strike elsewhere.
