Background

Vaarso Battlespeak notation: According to classical Neebab the number 40,700 stands for the Digger, a symbolic figure like that of the Hunter (5) or the Artist (8). The Digger is the master of the underworld, a caretaker of the land of the dead and responsible for the protection of the forbidden knowledge hidden within. Even though the number is symbolic and should be taken as a whole, if we strip it down to its core components, we will, on one hand, be left with 700, which is connected to knowledge and wisdom, and the 40,000, which anchors the 700 and provides it with a solid foundation.

Profile: When hope dwindled in the face of the EI onslaught, the Tohaa Colonial Command of the Romaanti system resolved to create a new unit that would use guerrilla tactics to harass the Combined Army forces, buying time for the civilian enclaves to be evacuated. In order to raise the morale of the troop and create a symbol of hope for non-combatants, this new team was named after the legendary Nikoul, a legendary guerrilla group, which seemed fitting given their predilection for ambush tactics.

The new Nikoul, like their ancient namesakes, acted alone or in small groups, stalking their prey and dealing with them with silent precision fire from concealed positions. More remarkably they, as their predecessors before them, surveyed the area of operations before combat, located the key strategic points, and dug foxholes that would be their fire positions during combat… or their graves. Despite their deadly efficiency, not even these executioners could halt the numberless forces of the EI, and many Nikoul fell to the overwhelming firepower of the Combined Army. The unit shed its blood and obtained many victories, but the Combined Army is an unstoppable flood and in the end the Romaanti system fell in its clutches. The Nikoul survivors were evacuated last. The unit had fulfilled its duty: they inflicted very heavy casualties, slowing the enemy advance and ensuring a successful civilian extraction. But the war was not over, certainly not for them because the Tohaa Trinomial is in danger, so it must be protected. That is their mission and that is their only concern.

Nikoul are guerilla warfare specialists, acting as scouts - surveying the area before a mission can take place. They're the first to go in, and usually the lat to come out. They know that if push comes to shove, their foxholes are a shallow grave - so they operate well to keep it from happening.
