The Secret Intelligence Division or S.I.D. is highly classified military unit designated “above top secret” within the G.A.I.A or the Galactic Anthropic Imperial Armada hierarchy. Only a very select few individuals outside of the unit even know it exists. Its primary mission is to ensure G.A.I.A’s dominance throughout the galaxy via exclusively covert-operations. Any threat to G.A.I.A, whether external or internal is eliminated by the S.I.D. with extreme prejudice.
Colonel Nikolas Kamirzakoff is the current commanding officer of the S.I.D. An advent student of Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” and Machiavelli’s “The Prince,” the Colonel is a brutally efficient realist who has no disillusions about the part he plays in the greater scheme of things. All organizations, no matter how noble and benign they may be will always need those who are willing to commit a little (or sometimes a lot) of evil for the greater good. In short the Colonel is a man who demands absolute loyalty from those under his command. His punishment for failure is harsh, reward for success is great and his ability to obtain results cannot be denied.
To prevent interference form other groups within G.A.I.A, the Colonel has literally cut off all ties to G.A.I.A’s military budget and instead the S.I.D.’s finances are gained exclusively through the spoils of war much like a mercenary force would do. He has even contracted with a brilliant if somewhat deranged scientist known only as Dr. Whackemoff. Dr. W. (as he is also known as) custom designs and creates all of their weapons, gear, mechs, and ships while singing along to ancient 20th century Earth music known as “Heavy Metal” although he’ll occasionally throw in ballad or two.
Dr. W. has provided something even more valuable to the S.I.D. than even his ships. He is the twisted genius who invented the process of taking normal people and turning them into cybernetic super soldiers. Once the process is complete, the super soldiers are then specifically augmented to carry out S.I.D.’s most deadly missions. Should they fail or worse be captured, an explosive device can be triggered that incinerates everything within 5 meters. Officially this is classified as the S.K.A.R.S. or Suicide Kings Atrocity Retribution Stratagem Project.
To sum up, the S.I.D. is the “black-ops” wing of G.A.I.A. There is no mission it won’t undertake no matter what the risks. Under the command of one stone-cold Colonel Kamirzakoff, equipped by one potentially insane Dr. Whackemoff and manned by exploding cyber assassins makes the S.I.D. look more a terrifying mercenary group than an integral component of military intelligence. By creating a unit that follows the credos of “…he who knows his enemy and himself need not fear the result of a hundred battles…” and “…the ends justifies the means…” without question has unleashed a force to be reckoned with. Now the only question remains. To what ends do the means justify? Only time will tell.
