The Order

The Order's Logo

The Order are a clandestine faction whose primary objective is to safeguard humankind from the threat of the Nomads. The group was founded by Casper Orillion, a leading Liberty Navy officer working in the Alaska system on a new prototype battleship. When his commanding officer became possessed by the Nomads, Orillion commandeered the prototype ship, named her the Osiris, and dedicated himself to the protection of the Sirius Sector from the Nomad threat.

The Order recruits pilots from all factions of Sirius (with the notable exception of the Outcasts, who view the Nomads as sacred spirits and who bury their dead facing the Jump Hole to Nomad space). Originally labelled a terrorist organization following the assassination of a Rheinland admiral on a visit to Manhattan, the group is now viewed as a defender of humanity from overwhelming and insidious alien forces.

Orillion's top notch engineers have produced weaponry and ships that rival any of the Houses' fighters at fractions of the cost, mostly from re-engineered Liberty equipment. Their ship, the Anubis Heavy Fighter, is the best ship available in House space save for Rheinland.


ORILLION NAMED AS ORDER LEADER: Today the President announced two contributions that advanced the exposure of The Order's leadership infrastructure: evidence provided by the LSF, and the decoded transmission from Zone 21. Jacobi says that there are repeated references to a single individual known only as "Orillion". LSF analysts believe this to be a codename. The President says that now it is only a matter of time before The Order will be rooted out and brought to justice.
