To qualify for this program these children must pass aptitude tests showing that they should be able to qualify for the Special Forces or Nautical Commando O.C.C.’s upon reaching adulthood. Currently the only possible way to go through this program is at a special academy in Chi-Town to which students from every C.S. territory are shipped. Candidates undergo complete physical, psychological and psionic work-ups before being accepted into this program. Roughly 80% of candidates will washout, those who washout in the first five years are considered to have learned Commando or Martial Arts HTH, and are returned to their home cities or villages if they were citizens, the rest are unceremoniously dropped back into the Burb from which they came. Washouts who volunteered for this program to gain citizenship for themselves and their families see their chances for gaining citizenship by serving in the army at a later date reduced to the same as anyone who walks in off the street. Washouts are automatically placed on the “Suspected Dissident List” and monitored closely, if however they decide to join the military later they may be removed from this list. The last two years of this program are generally spent in M.O.S. schools where they pick up the specific skillset of their chosen O.C.C. These soldiers each go through the “regular” training program of the O.C.C. they have chosen as well in order to set up a cover within the service, going through training this way allows them to network with other members of those classes. It also allows the instructors to give them one last, potentially fatal evaluation based on their performance & leadership in this last school. There is an average of 1,000 new “Students” every year, but with the success of these soldiers during the wars with Free Quebec & Tolkeen they plan to try & double that number by 115 P.A. Some of these children voluntarily become wards of the state in hopes of earning themselves and up to ten family members’ citizenship by graduating & serving a twenty year term of enlistment. Dying in the line of duty after graduating will allow the soldiers family to keep their citizenship, but if the soldier deserts or is expelled from the military before his term is up his family will see their citizenship immediately revoked & all of their property seized before they are exiled from the city. If the child does not honestly volunteer for this program after having the basics explained to them, the testers will know and he or she will not be accepted. Many of the recruits are taken from orphanages in the cities or ‘burbs, some are even brought into the program after being arrested for some minor crime. Every facet of their lives from class work to recreation is tightly controlled for the next 6 years, with harsh punishments for deviating from the proscribed activities. After the first 6 years the candidates are allowed the same degree of freedom as any teenagers at an elite military academy, and are closely monitored for any signs of disloyalty, if any are even suspected of such they are quietly eliminated. The Soldier trained in Krav Mahga does not believe in a “Fair Fight”, their motto when it comes to combat is “If you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying”. They instead seek every means to gain total advantage in a fight. Attacking from concealment, weapons, traps, throwing dirt in an enemy’s face, as long as it works it is an acceptable technique for a follower of this style. Those of a Miscreant or Diabolic alignment can take this to extremes, but thankfully thanks to the psionic & psychological screenings these soldiers regularly undergo during training, those who would have problems working in teams are discovered and the ones who still make it through the program are often given solo missions instead of squad commands. Propaganda over and above that received by normal C.S. citizens inundates their lives, especially in regards to how heroic they are by serving in the C.S. Military & protecting Humanity from the evils of magic and the alien. From the first day they arrive at the school they are taught Strict Military Discipline and loyalty to the C.S. Consequently these soldiers are not only among the most capable young officers in the C.S. Military Machine, but among the most dedicated. They may temporarily join forces with (and befriend) D-bees, mercenaries, bandits and practitioners of magic while on assignment in the wilderness or enemy territory. However, such "associations" are usually arrangements of convenience that are severed as soon as the soldier's mission is completed. In fact, the character may betray, turn in, or even kill his one-time comrades if it seems appropriate and the opportunity makes itself available. However, such dirty tricks are usually reserved for someone who has gotten on the character's bad side or someone who is completely despicable. The character, like any good secret agent, understands the value of having good connections. Consequently, many of these soldiers maintain loose associations with select nonhuman adventurers, mercenaries, and outlaws. 1691 students have graduated from this program as of 109 P.A. Of those, 250 are on active duty in the Magic Zone & 363 have been K.I.A. or are M.I.A. Despite the comparatively high mortality rate among these soldiers the high command does not consider them to be particularly expendable, however all of them serve in C.S.I.D. as special operatives and regularly receive & complete the most dangerous assignments.
