ABOUT

Over the past few decades, a powerful political and idealistic faction has united the various divisions of the Shattered Zone into a confederacy—Purity, so named because of its members expectation and surety that the cybernetic auttaine are the purest race and that—in time—they will become the next natural step of evolution across the universe. Purity’s ideals appeal to many locals; they have brought order, unity, and wider wealth to those within the Zone, and whilst their motivations and methods are considered harsh, most auttaine rub along with the ideals.

In truth, Purity represents a monstrous oppressor, punishing an increasingly wide group of its own citizens as abnormal. Under the flag of Purity, tens of thousands have been sent to correctional facilities across the Zone—and no one cares. Their leaders are aggressively idolized by the indoctrinated youth of the Zone, their words seen as almost divine, their vision for order and supremacy of the auttaine unquestioned. The older generation is somewhat less vocal but equally willing to dismiss negative rumors about Purity or put them down to foreign spies. Foreigners are viewed with broad smiles masking secret fears and loathing while the propaganda machine continues to spin. Tactics: The purity obersolders attack with their rifles, continuing their barrage unless enemies close, in which case they split and several move into melee while the others continue to shoot, or switch places in melee to allow their fellows time to reload. Purity soldiers are fanatical and fight to the death.
