Background

Vaarso Battlespeak Notation: In the Tohaa Trident, those special operation units working directly for the Special Operations Military Commandment are identified with a zero. A second number, separated with a dash, signals the unit’s special purpose. Gao-Rael Unit, the 0-5, is recognized by number 5, Rael, symbolizing the Hunter, an icon relating to physical perfection: strength, quickness and sharpness of senses. 

Profile: Tohaa civilization wouldn’t have been able to resist the unstoppable charge of the Combined Army if their own army, the Tohaa Trident, didn’t know how to evolve and adapt to the new threats brought by each new race the EI introduced to the struggle. The appearance of the insidious and treacherous Shasvastii, expert in all kind of camouflage and deceit, was initially a hard blow against Tohaa forces. The Shasvastii hidden assassins and shooters caused many casualties after their entrance into the conflict. However it didn’t take long for the Tohaa Trident to create specific units to counter this new danger. And to a civilization like the Tohaa, having spent such a long time living in constant conflict, “to counter” has a definitive meaning. Therefore, the main trait of the Gao-Rael unit is its operational disposition. This special unit hasn’t been conceived to combat hidden Shasvastii shooters as battlefield foes, but to hunt and exterminate them like the vermin they consider them to be. Trained by the best blade-beast hunters of the forest world of Luloah, slayers of dangerous beasts designated as class-1 predators, this unit’s members exemplify the ideal of the tracker-killer. Gao-Rael study their zone of operations with pinpoint accuracy, searching for any hidden enemy; when a menace is located, they unleash their entire firepower, neutralizing their target with the satisfaction of a hunter having brought down its prey.

The Unit of Gao-Rael is, in itself, an interesting study in Tohaa society and the changes made to it by the war. While the Vaarso Battlespeak designation granted to it is symbolic in nature — emphasising the physical prowess and aptitude of the Rael recruits — it is also very literal in meaning. The Gao-Rael were created with one purpose only, to hunt down Shasvastii infiltrators using cloaking and camouflage technology. When the Tohaa encountered this EI subordinate race, they at first were facing problems due to their lack of appropriate detection technology. Trident’s scientists quickly adapted some of their old gear, however, and created a sensory suite that allowed for an extension of the natural pheromone and smell receptors. This outside-of-the-box method of rooting out the enemy proved very successful. Even if you can’t see a Malignos, you can still detect it with your other senses, and that’s where the Gao- Rael step in. Casualty rates caused by Shasvastii snipers and saboteurs dropped sharply since the Gao-Rael had entered active duty. It is worth noting, however, that the Rael are not a defensive regiment by any means. They live up to their name and track down the Shasvastii to exterminate them once and for all. Part of the unit’s training is conducted by the best blade hunters of the forest world of Luloah, a planet teeming with class-1 predators, and to be formally inducted, each Rael has to survive in the jungle for three days, alone and surrounded by aggressive flora and fauna.
