Background

In Nordic mythology, Nisse were house gnomes from folk tales, strong and friendly, but also moody and demanding a great degree of respect. Contemporary Nisses take their name from these fantasy creatures because they are experts at operating in hostile, winter environments and have an equally explosive temper. The regiment was created to operate where PanOceanian interests clash with those of Yu Jing, in the icy and desolate tundra of planet Svalarhaima. The Nisse are patient hunters and are completely immune to the cold that permeates the planet thanks to both the latest tech developments and rigorous training. Historically, Nisse regiments pro- vided the best snipers in the PanOceanian Military Complex, and the Nisses are hard at work today to maintain that reputation.[1]


Nisses are mythological creatures traditionally believed to protect Scandinavian farms. Friendly-looking but superhumanly strong, they are depicted as quick to anger and easily offended.

PanOceanian Nisses are a battle-hardened Tactical Assault Group from Svalarheima, created for Protective and Forward Team operations. They might not look quite as friendly as their fantasy namesakes, but their temper and strength are spot-on. Nisses receive special training to be able to operate in icy environments, as befits the extremely harsh climate of their home planet, Svalarheima. Cold environments, such as ice deserts, tundra and mountaintops, can seep the energy from the best of soldiers and extinguish his will to fight.

Even worse, intense cold can make otherwise capable combatants become careless and error-prone in an adverse environment where mistakes cost life and limb. Nisses, however, are callous veterans and remain unaffected by the cold. In fact, they know how to make the best of an icy terrain to become even more deadly. When the storm breaks there are no volunteers to go inside and locate the enemy, but Nisses are not afraid of the storm; they are the storm.
