Background

The Tactical Domain Special Wing forms the operative core of the Shasvastii Expeditionary Forces. They have been trained to survive in the toughest and most dangerous environmental conditions in the galaxy. The Noctifers are equipped with specially designed environmental suits able to resist extreme meteorological phenomena. The most sophisticated concealment equipment of the Shasvastii Continuum, and a varied collection of short and long range weaponry, makes these creatures formidable opponents in any possible combat situation. The Shasvastii designation of this unit as Tactical Domain Special Wing is fully descriptive and completely accurate. Thanks to their training, Noctifers are capable of taking tactical control of any battle. Their mission is to dominate combat situations by striking whilst unseen and attacking vital points of defense. Their predilection for night actions, in which they can fully exploit their special combat qualities, is the reason for the code-name given by humans. These creatures have been created for stealth and cruelty. They are experimental soldiers, willing to fight until the end and to resort to the most dirty tricks to win a battle. Moving like invisible demons along the front, Noctifers remain undetected until the moment they attack with all their race’s characteristic malice and wickedness.

Noctifers—otherwise known as the Tactical Domain Special Wing—possess all the essential traits of a Shasvastii operative. They can remain hidden for prolonged periods of time thanks to their advanced cloaking technology. They are able to resist any and all adverse weather and environmental conditions thanks to their training and redundancies built into their protective suits, and they are equipped with the most lethal ranged weapons the Shasvastii Continuum can get its hands (or claws) on. The mission of a Noctifer is that of a patient hunter. They stalk the prey, striking from an unexpected angle and at an unexpected time—you truly do not know the time, nor the hour. During the initial contact between the Human Sphere and the Shasvastii, the Noctifers were usually sent in at dusk to exploit their stealth capabilities to the fullest, hence the nickname they received. To a Shasvastii, service in the Special Wing is a great honour, second in importance only to the task of providing for the young ones and preserving the legacy of the Shasvastii race. The Noctifers concentrate on removing the threats to Shasvastii existence.


Noctifers have sophisticated devices for hiding, along with a varied collection of mid-range and long-distance weapons. Their preference for nighttime activities is why they have received this code name from human troops. Moving around like invisible demons, these creatures have been created to be stealthy and cruel. They are always willing to use the dirtiest, most disgraceful tricks necessary to win a battle.[1][2].
