Mercenaries - Blackshot is one of the world's leading mercenary groups. Bound by a strict code of conduct, Blackshot mercenaries are expected to fulfil the terms of their contract to the letter, as stipulated by their employers. As Blackshot is a large multinational group, there have been many cases where Blackshot mercenaries were employed by the opposing corporations. In every case, it has been a fight to the death. Gaia Inc (Gaia) - The post-apocalyptic energy conglomerate that owns the majority of nuclear reactors found on every continent. This gives Gaia an abnormally large influence in the affairs of every New World government, as everyone is dependent on them for their energy production.
Gaia is an active participant in the recovery of Old World technology, and in the research and development of new ways to produce energy. Its nuclear reactor facilities and research laboratories are often the sites for bloody skirmishes. The Cloners - This corporation owns all of the surviving cloning factories. Unlike the Old World superpowers, they are dependent on other companies such as Gaia for energy to produce their clones. Given the wanton destruction of natural resources in the nuclear exchange, the current scarcity of material and technological know-how has resulted in only a very limited number of clones to be produced. These current clones are also less adept on the battlefield relative to their Old World counterparts, since Old World clone command centres that housed all the advanced clone technology were the first to be destroyed in the nuclear showdown. The Cloners are aggressively pursuing cloning technology, and often employ mercenaries to defend what remaining cloning installations it possesses.
