The Company troops, also called "security troops" were an elite military force that was established by the Company. The main role for the Company troop was security. They were mostly used on the Colony to ensure that the miners stayed in line. When the virus broke out on the Colony in 2010, all of the troops were called into action. Most of the troops were on the Colony grounds at the time of the outbreak, leaving only around thirty troops on the Shadow Sword. Few of the troops survived the outbreak.
