Welcome to the Protection Division! This division is responsible for the Authority's military operations, operating a sizeable ground and naval force. The Protection Division is the first responder in the event of a discovery of a potential anomaly, quickly securing and containing the area of occurrence. The Protection Division is also responsible over the Authority Central Intelligence, whose function is rooting out potential espionage and securing intelligence leaks.

The ASF, also known as Authority Security Force, is the defense wing in the Protection Division responsible for the general defense, security, and coordination of logistics within the Authority's sites, mobile command centers, and listening stations. The ASF serves as a rapid response force in the event of an internal or external threat within Authority installations, being able to rapidly organize its manpower within minutes of an occurring incident. All ASF personnel are additionally trained to specialize in various combat and support roles.

Personnel who excel in their duties may be provided various opportunities to advance in rank through available induction courses in order to obtain non-commissioned or commissioned officer designations. Upon graduation, personnel will be prepared to issue and relay commands to subordinate personnel and assume control over individual sections of garrisoned units.

While senior commissioned officers are charged with the administration of individual ASF garrisons at their respective facilities, all ASF personnel adhere to a centralized command structure, with central command being the senior-most platform. All orders pertaining to the function of the ASF and its personnel are issued or modified by central command and serve as the final authority.


The ACI, also known as Authority Central Intelligence, is a specialist wing in the Protection Division responsible for the coordination of intelligence, counter-intelligence, cyber security, and espionage networks in and out of Authority facilities. Operatives affiliated with the ACI observe and track various leads pertaining to military, government, and commercial networks involving Authority interests, concerns, and threats. All information collected by the ACI is then processed to filter inconsistent or unreliable sources.

The ACI is additionally responsible for public disinformation/obstruction campaigns, apprehending and interrogating unaffiliated witnesses to anomalous events or Authority operations. Events requiring immediate or significant public concealment may result in the administration of amnestics to all involved witnesses.

While maintaining a centralized command structure, ACI personnel are provided significant flexibility during undercover operations and are allowed to enact appropriate countermeasures in the event of mission compromise. ACI personnel are additionally permitted to enact staff observations/evaluations in the event of an active concern or suspicion pertaining to staff behavior, loyalty, or discretion.


MSTs, also known as Mobile Specialized Teams, is the collective designation given to groups of military personnel specializing in various functions pertaining to the capture/tracking of anomalous objects and elimination of hostile groups. MSTs do not pertain to infantry functions, instead exclusively operating under select fields that require specific skill sets. MSTs are additionally provided independent arsenals and designations (callsigns) to assist in operations and identification.

Unlike other Protection Division assets, MSTs operate under a decentralized command system, with individual detachments being administrated by groups of commanding officers. This additionally applies to base of operations, as individual MST detachments may be independently housed or garrisoned in Authority installations.

All active MSTs are logged within a compiled database detailing their callsign, function, involved anomalies, and archived documentation. As additional anomalies are discovered, more detachments will be produced and their respective information detailed.


The Protection Division primarily revolves around neutralization, acquisition, and re-containment of anomalous entities that are outside or have escaped the Authority. While an article may be written about the testing of any anomalous item, that writing lends itself better to research division. The objective of protection is exactly as its namesake is, protecting. This lends itself better to anomalous items that require force, constant watch, and a physical aspect that the other three divisions may not be able to provide.

Protection is entirely militaristic, and uses jargon, callsigns, and equipment to match. This also operates within their ideology, such as the chain of command that dictates who they answer to and when they answer to them. These are mainstays, and to break them by any soldier of any rank is a court martial or something far worse. Similarly, military culture operates on a "don't ask, don't tell" system, and it is very unlikely that any soldier would openly speak of any information not available to the general public on accident. That action suits much more towards research, who would freely share information between each other for the purposes of containment.

When posting a Protection Tone article, make sure to add the "protection-tone" tag. You should apply the Protection Division theme to the article as well.
