Conflagration - "she could do critical damage to his organic tissue if she was committed enough, and he did not doubt the precision of her aim"Genetically engineered, bred and trained for battle, the champions of the Neomorph Polity exist for one purpose - to bring destruction to their enemies.
The origin of the Champion Army is in the essence the origin of the Champion faction, as the warrior-caste was genetically engineered and bred for the purpose of strengthening the Neomorph's ability to defend themselves and their society. Learn more about the Champion race's origin here.
Due to the Champions' specialization as warriors, they rarely work with specific organisational doctrines, but tend to adopt a more special-operations-style approach, where they assembly specific task forces to achieve specific tasks. The Champions' chameleon abilities and capacity to communicate using skin colors, as with the Neomorphs, makes them ideally suited to such methods.
The Champions are especially good at small-scale combat in confined spaces, due to spending most of their lives and training time abaord ships in their fleets or in small colonies.
The proud warrior caste believe themselves to be above many common military activities, such as guard and patrol duties, and more often than not will remain disengaged from a fight until a decisive blow can be brought to bear. Defensively, they consider themselves as a the final bastion and take pride in fighting in small groups. It is not uncommon for specific individuals to remain in cadres from birth, creating strong group loyalty with their comrades.
