Background

The Striders are part of that breed of pioneers who create their legend, like Livingston or Amundsen, explorers who have captivated the masses and their imagination with the tales of their voyages. They’re lone scouts who venture into uncharted territories and map alien planets, who draw the boundaries between colonial outposts of rival powers and discover new geographical landmarks in the remotest areas of faraway exoplanets. They’re adventurers and soldiers who were called upon by Torchlight while most of them were in isolated areas, away from the regular communication channels, and many of them were the last ones to join the first generation of this special brigade of O-12.

The Forward Scouting Unit is a group of highly skilled operatives who wear state-of-the-art, servo-powered, light armor that doubles as an all-around extreme environmental suit. The primary task of Striders is to explore and operate in uncharted territories beyond the established borders, venturing into the dangerous wilderness or remote regions under enemy control. Certainly, this rather singular unit plays a very particular role in the Torchlight Brigade: helping it carry out its duties as an international law enforcement agency tasked with keeping order both in disputed no-man’s-land and in the vast, barren expanses beyond the frontier colonies.

As members of an international law enforcement organization, Striders must strictly adhere to the ethical guidelines set forth by the Torchlight command. It doesn’t matter if they’re in wild lands where the law of the jungle is the only rule and “morality” is just a name for some homemade liquor, because they’re the instrument of order and the righteous arm of O-12 in those remote regions. But these aren’t the accounts most people are familiar with. The tales they hear tell of operations to rescue research teams who are trapped in hellish alien jungles, of their expeditions to aid pioneers and settlers who have traveled too far for a more conventional unit to reach them, and of many other feats accomplished against impossible odds. That’s the stuff their legend is forged from, and that’s why these lone scouts have become the true heroes of the uncharted territories. [1]
