The Mercenary Syndicate, more commonly known as the Syndicate, is the ruling body of a coalition of seven planets in the Outlands that are together called Syndicate Space. They are also the main organizer of the Apex Games.

History[]

The Mercenary Syndicate is a conglomerate of various mercenary companies that was said to have "brought life and order" to the Outlands after the devastation brought about by the Frontier War, the withdrawal of both the IMC and the Frontier Militia, and the subsequent Outlands Civil War.

The earliest mention of the group's existence was 2440, when the simulacrum Revenant was first delivered to them for their use. In 2708, Revenant was active and was the culprit in the murder of con-man Marcos and Alanza Andrade on Olympus.

Following the conclusion of the Outlands Civil War in 2723, all six planets who signed the Mercenary Syndicate Treaty came under the rule of the Syndicate, while the rest of the planets in the Outlands became the Fringe Worlds, free from Syndicate control.[1] They then planned to revive the Thunderdome, an old bloodsport based in the IMC base at Kings Canyon. These games would come to be known as the "Apex Games" after the infamous Apex Predators, who were members of the Syndicate. The games started sometime in 2729, were one of the Syndicate's biggest endeavors, and would become wildly successful.

Following the devastation to the arena at Kings Canyon due to an EMP attack on the island's Repulsor Tower[2], the Syndicate set about on rebuilding and adding new areas to their aging five year old arena. Subsequent attacks on Kings Canyon continued even after the EMP blast, including a hack to the arena's announcer system.[3] This forced the Syndicate to temporarily relocate the Apex Games to another arena at World's Edge on Talos, where the Syndicate was reported to recently have had a run-in with Hammond Robotics.[4]

A partnership with Hammond Robotics was penned before the entry of a sponsored competitor, Forge, who was subsequently murdered on World's Edge by Revenant. Scrambling to cover up their tracks and for their safety, the simulacrum was contained on the arena as a competitor.

With a change in the leadership of the planet Salvo, it formally joined Syndicate Space in 2734 after a failed attempt in 2722. However, a terrorist attack by Margaret Kōhere, a Salvonian warlord, during Fuse's introduction to the Games threatened to complicate relations between Salvo and the Syndicate.[5] Kōhere was later captured by the Syndicate and put on trial for her crimes.

Due to the numerous incidents and tragedies that have befall the Syndicate, more people have been challenging its more than a decade of undisputed rule. Eventually, the CEO of Silva Pharmaceuticals, Torres Silva (publicly acting as "Eduardo Silva") was elected as the Syndicate's sole leader in 2734.[6]

Structure[]

As its name suggests, it is a conglomerate of numerous mercenary companies, the Apex Predators being one of their most elite[7]; how and why they banded together is still unknown though. Mentions of a "Syndicate Council" has been made, presumably the highest governing body of the Syndicate and composed of the leaders of its most powerful mercenary companies. The council was eventually done away in the year 2734, with its governing and decision making power consolidated to the position of "One Voice of the Syndicate", currently occupied by Torres Silva.

The Syndicate rules seven planets that have signed the Mercenary Syndicate Treaty, legally called the Syndicate Alliance of Free Worlds[8], and are commonly known as "Syndicate Space". The actual contents of the treaty and the obligations that come with being under Syndicate rule are unknown, other than the Syndicate have complete authority over Talos, Boreas, Solace, Tartarus; Psamathe and Gaea were allowed to maintain their own governments and law enforcement, but agree to the rest of treaty. [9] The Syndicate also provide magisterial judicial function. Recently, they also took control of Frontier Corps and reformed them into Syndicate Corps, fully funded by the Syndicate, in order to provide, social, medical, and economic development support throughout the Frontier while promoting mutual understanding among citizens.

Subdivisions inside the organization include the Apex Games Commission which specifically manages the Apex Games, the Office of Public Relations headed by Jacob Young, and a Committee of Unification Board that headed Salvo's entry into Syndicate Space.
