Ambassador Ruri "Kuroneko" GokouEdit
The current Ambassador to New Anglia, Ruri Gokou is a severe and imperious woman, though she is certainly not without her eccentricities. She is well known in diplomatic circles for her very distinct style of dress; she is often seen at various diplomatic functions wearing gothic lolita-style clothes and a set of fake cat ears. Due to her habits, many members of her staff have affectionately nicknamed her Kuroneko (lit. "Black Cat").

1st Lieutenant Filicia HeidelmanEdit
- "Just call me Filicia. No need to state my rank. We're all soldiers here, aren't we?"
Filicia Heidelman is an SOS Imperial Guard platoon leader. A university graduate who majored in history, she chose to forego a career in academia in favor of attending the Guard's Officer Candidate School. She graduated with honors from OCS with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, and her first assignment was leading a combat platoon on the world of Gorasnaya, which proved to be largely uneventful until her unit was sent to the town of Seize to rescue another platoon that had come under attack by a relict population of Chimaerans. After the successful rescue mission, she was promoted to 1st Lieutenant. She was among the many SOS Imperial Guard forces sent to fight the Multiversal Empire of Happiness as part of the Shinra Republic-led coalition; she, along with the rest of her platoon, survived the war.
1st Lieutenant David VasquezEdit
An SOS Imperial Guard platoon leader, David Vasquez was involved in an incident involving feral Chimaerans and Schismatics in the city of Seize on Gorasnaya, which necessitated the rescue of the remnants of his platoon by Filicia Heidelman and her unit. He was among the forces sent to fight the Multiversal Empire of Happiness.

The "Magnificent Five"Edit
The "Magnificent Five" are a cabal of five of the oldest and most experienced officers in the entire SOS Imperial Armed Forces, with careers originating in the Directorate War and the Great Crusade.
Part of what made their meteoric rise to fame and power all the more remarkable was their relatively humble origins. All five of them had started out at the very bottom of the SOS Imperial Marine Corps hierarchy; at the outbreak of the Directorate War, they were but freshly commissioned 2nd Lieutenants barely out of the academy and placed in command of their own platoons. They distinguished themselves well enough during the initial engagements of the Directorate War to be rapidly promoted to Captain and placed in command of company-level forces, though they certainly did not stop there. By the end of the Directorate War and the start of the Holy Empire's involvement in the Great Crusade, the five women were already Lieutenant Generals, personally leading corps-level forces into battle. They all quickly made Field Marshal as the Great Crusade progressed and were personally present at nearly every major engagement involving the Holy Empire during that conflict. They are among the few individuals alive today who can safely say that they personally fought alongside the legendary Primarchs of the Adeptus Astartes.
The Magnificent Five continued to fight long after the end of the Great Crusade; some of their more notable accomplishments in the immediate post-Great Crusade period include the purging of the Overfiends in 3011 and the pacification of the Risea Sector in 3151-3157. They were also instrumental in helping secure Haruhiist aid for the fledgling Eleven Colonies during the First Bragulan War. Despite being repeatedly offered positions in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, however, the Magnificent Five declined every single time, preferring to leave matters of administration in the hands of younger, more bureaucratically capable officers.
After the pacification of the Risea Sector, the Magnificent Five settled into a state of semi-retirement, occasionally returning to give advice to the Joint Chiefs, to teach classes at the Marine Corps Academy, or to help oversee important programs like Project Radio Noise or Project Infinite Stratos. They were officially reactivated in early 3401 to help lead the SOS Imperial Armed Forces contingent participating in the Shinra Republic-led coalition against the Multiversal Empire of Happiness.
Field Marshal Homura AkemiEdit
- "We are cold, rational, mechanical monsters, and we win by being colder, more rational, and more mechanical than all the other monsters out there who would dare oppose us. We decide who lives and who dies. That's just how it is."
Field Marshal Madoka KanameEdit
- "They were my brothers and sisters in arms. To them, I have an obligation to ensure that their sacrifices will help make this universe a kinder, gentler place."
Field Marshal Sayaka MikiEdit
- "Get us in closer! I want to hit those Tau bastards over there with my sword!"
Field Marshal Kyoko SakuraEdit
- "Once you have been on the battlefield, seen the spectacle, tasted the thrills, felt the tension, felt the sheer exhilaration, it all becomes a part of you. Once you've awakened the warrior within, it never sleeps again. You crave ever greater spectacles, ever bigger thrills, ever greater tension. People like me care little for money, power, fame, or even sex. I like war. No, I LOVE war! God help me, I enjoy every last second of it."
Field Marshal Mami TomoeEdit
- "I believe that there are causes that are truly worth dying for. Repeatedly, if need be. Now, where'd the rest of my body go?"
Field Marshal Diane NakanoEdit
The current commandant of the Marine Corps, Diane Nakano is accordingly one of the most senior officers in the entire service, outranked only by the Magnificent Five and a few other elder officers.

Infinite Stratos Test UnitEdit
The Infinite Stratos Test Unit (ISTU) was initially composed of five officers chosen to participate in Project Infinite Stratos, an SOS Imperial Marine Corps initiative meant to help close the all too real supersoldier gap between the Holy Empire and its neighbors in the Koprulu Zone by developing all-new infantry weapons and powered armor. By complete chance, the ISTU at its inception was an all-female unit, though a male officer was later added to the roster.
