Ruthless, assertive and above all, devoted. Originally an independent militant organization created by settlers that dreamt of establishing a Far Left regime on Ancora, Vanguard actively supports the spread of their particular brand of socialism.

Described as totalitarian, if not outright despotic, Vanguard 's vision of the future is dictated by a mysterious patriarch, referred to only as «Father». Discipline and obedience are considered to be the highest virtues and are actively enforced by the authorities.

Servants of the regime warn against the dangers of carelessness concerning the human condition. Cloning, artificial intelligence, transhumanism— people fighting under the red and blue banner strongly believe that technology and morality aren’t on the same page anymore. Perhaps, they just feel like they can’t catch up to it. But try saying it to their faces when Vanguard's armada is at your doorstep.
