Background

The elite of the Expeditionary Forces of the Shasvastii Continuum is the Deep Incursion Corps. This unit was created to give the lightweight but well-equipped Shasvastii military a fighting chance against bigger or better armored armies. It specializes in dealing devastating selective strikes to blindside the enemy and throw them off their strategy. The psychological impact attained is so intense that the Paradiso Coordinated Command gave these operatives the codename ‘Malignos’, in the Tagalog/Filipino sense, during the First Offensive. Their concealment gear is so effective that human soldiers had to estimate their position knowing only their last location, or hope to correctly interpret the currents of air these demons caused as they moved about. Malignos are too subtle to be detected by anti-intruder systems, which they sidestep astutely without losing their stride. They are undetectable and, therefore, untouchable. However, they are never tempted to be rash, exhibiting instead a perverse form of patience made all the more unsettling by the thought that they are always calculating, always awaiting the perfect moment to shatter your world…[1]

Their Human Sphere name came from the psychological impact these elite Shasvastii operatives had on troops during the First Offensive on Paradiso. The Tagalog/Filipino name of ‘Malignos’ was assigned to them as a result of the havoc they wrought in that sphere of operations. The Malignos stealth technology is so effective that they are near-invisible on the battlefield and barely register on sensors. Subtle and patient, the Malignos are used to counter the advantage that bigger or better-armoured foes may have against the usually-lightweight Shasvastii forces. Many Human Sphere forces find themselves shooting at empty air when the Malignos are deployed, only to find themselves under attack from another position moments later.

Mobile units. Above average fighters. Fire and reposition.
