Demios Group Arklay Research Outpost
A large state of the art research facility stands out amongst the rural island, an out of the way outpost for critical and sometimes unethical research that needed to be conducted. Before the outbreak, it was home to a modest staff and skeleton security crew. After the outbreak, with most functioning BSL-4 labs long since having fallen it has swelled up to be one of the last remaining properly equipped scientific strongholds left on the west coast, if not the continent.
For those with the clearance to find themselves inside the facility, down into the earth and into the restricted labs – they’d find they still have everything they need to do their jobs. And as things get desperate, and results are demanded, the scientific team might find themselves having to break moral, ethical, and legal thresholds in the hopes of science – or survival.

Known formally as the Deimos Group Corporate Security Detail, and informally as the Epsilon Group – this group is the strong arm of the megacorp. This hand picked detachment handles the more sensitive matters of security on all things regarding the Deimos Group, from high risk security assignments to more hands on matters that are required. Accusations of the group have ranged from intimidation and battery to corporate espionage – and worse. Regardless of the charges leveled, no member of the group or the company itself have ever been convicted, likely due in no small part to the legal team brought to bear.
While the Arklay Research Facility was manned by a small compliment of security officers, as the contagion struck and the importance of the facility slowly became fully realized as one of the potentially last sites on the continental United States that could work out a cure, this small security detail would not suffice. The Arklay facility was given the highest level of priority, and Epsilon was cleared for deployment to ‘Romeo Oscar’.
The catch – no time frame on the contract, no promise there would be a city or even country to come home to, limited if any support or resupply. However, what they had going was the housing of security and science personnel’s families inside one of the Deimos corporate bunkers, and the promise of a massive payday when and if they pulled it off. It wasn’t a Faustian bargain, but it was close.
Epsilon on Arklay has 4 base objectives listed by importance that must be fulfilled on a continuous basis.
1. The absolute protection and safeguarding of the research facility and all scientific or security personnel within.
2. To assist or make available resources and requests for the scientific team in any available capacity.
3. Carry out actions or operations deemed important for the well being, security and continued survival and operation of the outpost.
4. Attempt to maintain an amicable and non-hostile relationship with the local island populace and authorities.
The group is run as a military organization, and with military discipline and radio structure. Chain of command is enforced regardless if a long time Deimos employee or a field recruited individual. Employees or contractors found to be grossly in disregard of the objectives, procedures, or found to be operating in unsanctioned or deniable criminal activities may be met with termination, summary discipline or in extreme cases – execution.

The organization structure of the entire deployed unit is headed up by the Command Division. From there the taskforce is split into two different detachments, the Uniformed and Plainclothes detachment. Finally, each detachment has two divisions assigned to it, one headed up by mainline employees and another headed up by senior employees.
All new hires to the company, regardless of prior background or professional aptitude are integrated into the fold as contractors.
OOC QUICK FACTS
- Epsilon is not a police group or a military group. Epsilon is corporate security. Members are not allowed to randomly detain or police sections of the town not under Epsilon control.
Epsilon only has operational authority to secure, protect and patrol the area of the lab structure and it’s underground structures hereafter referred to as the Compound. All unclaimed and uninhabited territory within 100 meters of the compound hereafter referred to as the Yellow Zone.
Epsilon employees do NOT have any law enforcement capabilities or operational authority outside of the compound and the Yellow Zone. Epsilon members that are in town are required to submit to confiscation orders for businesses and locations when necessary. Epsilon is not a police force and individuals acting as such will be dealt with.
