Imperial Intelligence and Black Ops Personnel

The two spy branches of the Empire function very differently, but both have unique minions they can call on to support their agents in the field.

For Imperial Intelligence, their close connection with Security means they often arrange to waive or lessen a prisoner's sentence in exchange for service.  Many such "services" end in the death of the prisoner, but just as often they don't, and the Empire remains true to their word.  More, Imperial Intelligence often fosters relationships with the best of their former prisoner-agents, making use of them again and again.  The result is that many prisoners within the imperial prison system are, in fact, de-facto informers and agents for Imperial Intelligence, arranging for "escapes" by political prisoners and then infiltrating enemy ranks in return for special considerations back home.

Black Ops prefers a more direct approach and employs elite hitmen and assassins in the form of Commandos and Demolitionists, which they deploy in Outrider-Class corvettes behind enemy lines, where they can wreak havoc, investigate enemy positions, or assassinate their rivals.


Black Ops

Elite Imperial Black Ops Commando

Commandos represent the elite of the dark arm of the Imperial forces known as Black Ops. They wear lighter armor than their naval counterparts, and use weapons that combine maneuverability with precision.

Prison-Legion

Leavenworth Federal Penetentiary is no joke. They'll take a wild man like you and throw him in solitary just for the fun of it. No more mountains to board, no more oceans to surf. Just a 6-by-8 cell with no window and only a bucket to shit in. You can avoid all of that by doing me this small favor.
-Gibbons, xXx
 The Empire chooses the best of the bet for its prison legions, even if it plans to throw them away.  The result is that the prisoners that serve Imperial Intelligence are definitively a cut above their fellow prisoners and often make better soldiers than Imperial Security, or even some Imperial Naval troopers!  This also makes them a big risk, but Imperial Intelligence always deploys control collars to keep them in line.

Prison Bruiser

A criminal brute given a lighter sentence in exchange for service to Imperial Intelligence. They often serve as shock-troopers, moving to the front of their respective squad and risking death for the unit, because to do otherwise is certain death.

Prison Psycho

The psycho defies order and control, and thus can be both the most useful and the least useful member of a prison squad. Intelligence prefers to simply unleash a group of them on the enemy and then walk away, with no intention of freeing them or even seeing if they survive. The best prison psychos often prove useful enough that Intelligence wants to keep them around, but they inevitably devise some plan or enjoy some lucky break that allows them to turn the tables on their captors. Worse, they’re awfully cavalier about their explosive collars.

Prison Enforcer

The ideal criminal elite for Imperial Intelligence. They understand structures of command and know how to obey orders. They often build long-term relationships with their captors and can begin to act as leadership for their fellow prisoners. The primary problem with them is that they usually maintain ties with the outside world, and they’re the most likely to have an agenda the intelligence officer is unaware of, or friends on the outside just waiting for him to get sprung.
