CRIMSON GUARD troopers are elite members of the COBRA legions. Each must hold a degree in either law or accounting as well as being in top physical condition. After rigorous training in COBRA combat and tactics, each "Siegie" undergoes plastic surgery (performed by the COBRA surgeon SCALPEL) so that each trooper will look similar. Afterward, each is given his new assignment: a new life, in a new city, where they are expected to climb political and corporate ladders into positions of importance. The "Siegie" network may have been in place already for more than 10 years with many wielding great power. The CRIMSON SHADOW GUARD is a subgroup of the main CRIMSON GUARD force. They are infiltrators and saboteurs who specialize in covert operations conducted in the night and the shadows. Silent and invisible as they conduct their evil deeds, they leave behind no trace of their existence—only destruction and betrayal.
