the hounds
The HOUNDS are an underground Operation first discovered in 1904 by German officials looking for better, and more concealed ways to defend their country. It was a dormant, premature Operation with little more than ten operatives at the time. The HOUNDS were a prototype campaign no one but highly regarded officials knew anything of, and at the time, were not even off the ground yet.

Those working to develop it took nearly twenty years to collect and test various methods of training for these specialized soldiers. Each member would eventually be separated in two categories of HOUND work.

Soldiers- trained for more upfront combat. Sent along as bodyguards for German officials, crucial missions involving stealthy approaches, technical jobs involving close range with the enemy, and otherwise precise jobs not trusted to be carried out by anyone else.

Spies- HOUND Spies are most often those sent directly into enemy territory. Trained a step even deeper than Soldiers, Spies have the honours of working an even more determining field of duty. Most are chosen based on personality and social skills as they have to possess the ability to shape themselves into any assigned role. They can be your neighbours, your friends, your employees. Ordinary people to the naked eye- given cover identities to fit into modern life along side the people they are out for information from. The HOUNDS are a primary reason trust is given out so sparingly.

At first HOUNDS were chosen from Soldiers of the German army who had shown adequate skills above the majority. Plotted into separate training facilities where they were given the appropriate preparations for work. But as time progressed and the operation began receiving more attention from the Government, those working within it began striving for better, and more advanced methods of producing the perfect soldiers. With the beginning of WW2, German raids over France and England made for an expanding need for this still developing division. Those in charge began realizing the lack of time being invested into training- deciding in order to produce better, more dependable results, they'd have to raise those results.

By 1940, the haze of attack left open opportunity for German Soldiers forcing their way into cities to nick children from their homes in order to be taken in for training. Being that the Germans already had plans to overthrow these countries, so the lack of German blood was only skimmed as a debatable issue. As children, training grew into them. Giving the Germans that depth they so longed for.

For the citizens, these Rumours of child snatching HOUNDS became the fear caught in the throats of mothers and families across Europe. "Dusk Hounds" there were less affectionately dubbed by the seemingly invisible way they came and went. No one has any real proof of their existence. Only tales and theories all washing in with the thousands of others alike it.

Once you're a HOUND, you're a HOUND for life. Through the brutality of training, and strict code of conduct, every aspect of your life is owned. Lest you find yourself as one of those more trusted in the Organization, your say means little in the matters of freedom. But, to certain means, you'd be lucky to serve under such a title. Respect, however hard to see, is much higher within the HOUNDS than within any other branch of work.

REMEMBER, HOUNDS ARE NOT A PUBLICLY KNOWN ORGANIZATION. No one but the Germans themselves have any real proof that they are an existing organization. Somewhere along the development, someone let the name slip, and it has been floating around as a rumour. With that, the belief of such a subgroup has been interpreted differently from person to person. While some believe, others sit in denial.

HOUNDS are not regular German soldiers/ affiliates.

INSIDE THE HOUNDS

The HOUNDS are in fact a separate organization from the regular German soldiers. Their primary purpose is to serve the German government as clandestinely as possible.

They are in fact prompted to wear a separate uniform from the normal Nazi/ German soldiers to distinguish between army branch, but it would likely only be worn on friendly territory. At a formal event ( hosted by friendly affiliates ), a HOUND would likely choose to present themselves in the appropriate uniform to show rank and branch. Bars and insignia would follow standard ranking.

The HOUNDS were brought along to play roles like spies ( who essentially are HOUNDS plotted in England given false cover lives and sent to uncover information from the British government that may be useful to Germany. They are also sometimes sent straight into British forces like the non-allied navy/army/aerial fleets in order to manipulate their enemies from the inside out ) so, with that, they're mostly there to blend in. They'll assume any appearance they need to in order to complete the job at hand.

Though it VERY uncommon that a HOUND is placed to do so, when fighting with foot soldiers on the front lines, they can be dressed to distinguish between rank, and those fighting against them will see the difference, but it should not be known to the other side that "oh, that one there is a HOUND". They just see them as something obviously a higher rank and obviously more dangerous, just not specifically what they are.

Growing up as a HOUND, whether you were born into the organization or picked up from raid, is a rigorous life. From the moment you are placed in the organization, assessed, and given a subcategory ( Soldier/ Spy ) your life becomes about the training. Contrary to popular belief, all HOUND novice are given thorough educations. Everything from language courses, maths, and literature to hand-to-hand combat, artillery and strategy. But with strict, controlled education also comes the inevitability of brainwashing.

The younger the HOUND novice, the easier they will pick up on these Nazi ideals of imperialism and ethnics driving a great majority of the war. It is programmed into them continuously throughout their training and will likely follow them into their assignments as ranked officers.

the reynard rebels
The Rebels are not an infant organization. Though new as an organization, the ideas they carry are not. Rebellion is a dream they share with every nation currently enduring the oppressions of war. Contrary to popular belief, the Reynard Rebels were created by a group of Americans who'd flown in prior to the regulations against entry and departure from the island. They've lived together in England for some time now, gathering reinforcements and slowly building their ragtag organization into what it is now. Settled in the heart of Camden, the Rebel base is one of many inconspicuous product warehouses which upon they settle meetings, set up sanctuary, and provide home to any persons who need the cover.

The Rebels are perhaps more a rumour than the HOUNDS. Since the collapse of the British Government and the spreading of German control across England, word has been ringing of a small ragtag band of Rebels lurking just under the skin of England's streets. But... rumours can be pretty believable, can't they? Whether you put your faith into this tiny spark of hope, or let it wash down with everything else you've heard uttered many times before.

the government
The toppermost of the poppermost in society, the Government contains all those in charge of and above its people. These are major and minor official positions responsible for the management of its country. They may be iron fist dictators, keep calm disarmers, or foolish visionaries. There are always doubts and gaps in these divisions, it's just a matter of figuring out who you can and cannot trust. Will you be a loyalist or a rebel?

civil defence
These are your every day citizens of London who want to help to defend their country as opposed to being in the forces there is a range of opportunities for the normal people of London to help the war effort. These include, ARP wardens, fire fighters, rescue workers, the home guard, billeting officers, land girls and any other division of the Women’s Voluntary Service.

ARP WARDENS

Air Raid Precautions (ARP) were organised by the national government and delivered by the local authorities. The aim was to protect civilians from the danger of air-raids.

Their main purpose of ARP Wardens was to patrol the streets during blackout and to ensure that no light was visible. If a light was spotted, the warden would alert the person/people responsible by shouting something like "Put that light out!" or "Cover that window!".

The ARP Wardens also reported the extent of bomb damage and assess the local need for help from the emergency and rescue services.

They were responsible for the handing out of gas masks and pre-fabricated air-raid shelters (such as Anderson shelters, as well as Morrison shelters), and organised and staffed public air raid shelters. They used their knowledge of their local areas to help find and reunite family members who had been separated in the rush to find shelter from the bombs.

There were 1.4 million ARP wardens in Britain, most of who were part time volunteers who had full time day jobs. Now the numbers dwindle as both confidence and boldness fades. Though still, a great number still work among citizens to this day.

Things are quite progressive since the rise in the Reynard Rebels. appointing women, as well as men, as wardens. Although the standard procedures proscribed the ideal warden to be at least thirty, men and women of all ages were wardens. In certain instances, given special needs of communities, even teenagers were wardens.

THE HOME GUARD


The Home Guard (initially "Local Defence Volunteers" or LDV) was a defence organisation of the British Army.

In the radio announcement, men between the ages of 17 and 65 in Britain who were not in military service but wished to defend their country against an invasion, were all called to enroll in the LDV at their local police station. The announcement was met with a great deal of enthusiasm on the part of the population, with 250,000 volunteers attempting to sign up in the first seven days

Orders were issued from the War Office to [/b]regular Army headquarters[/b] throughout Britain explaining the status of LDV units; volunteers would be divided into sections, platoons and companies but would not be paid and leaders of units would not hold commissions or have the power to command regular forces.

Initially the LDV were poorly armed, since the regular forces had priority for weapons and equipment. The LDV's original role had largely been to observe and report enemy movements, but it swiftly changed to a more aggressive role. Nevertheless, they would have been expected to fight well-trained and equipped troops, despite having only negligible training and only weapons such as pitchforks and shotguns (a solid ammunition for shotguns was developed for this purpose) or firearms that belonged in museums. Patrols were carried out on foot, by bicycle, horseback and also river patrols using the private craft of members- all of it, often without uniforms, although all volunteers wore an armband that said "LDV".

BILLETING OFFICERS


The Billeting officer's job is to organize lodging for troops, whether it is overseeing the building of barracks, assigning rooms and/or bunks of existing facilities to soldiers as they arrive, or to secure lodging off-base such as hotel's, motels, or other spaces to rent. Their job is to do whatever is necessary to make sure soldiers have a secure place to sleep.

Billeting officers also helped evacuees off the train then went round the houses asking the home owners to take in an evacuees. Evacuees were sent to the country side, before they were killed. Most children are known to be rather intimidated by Billeting officers... as they can be known to be [/b]strong[/b], firm and loud people. Capable of great authority.

WOMEN'S LAND ARMY


The Women's Land Army (WLA) was a British civilian organisation created during the First and Second World Wars to work in agriculture replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the WLA were commonly known as Land Girls.

With 6 million men away to fight in the First World War, Britain was struggling for labour. The government wanted women to get more involved in the production of food and do their part to support the war effort. This was the beginning of the Women’s Land Army. Many traditional farmers were against this so the board of trade sent agricultural organizers to speak with farmers to encourage them to accept women’s work on the farms.

As the prospect of war became increasingly likely, the government wanted to increase the amount of food grown within Britain. In order to grow more food, more help was needed on the farms and so the government started the Women's Land Army in June 1939. The majority of the Land Girls already lived in the countryside but more than a third came from London out into the country to begin work.

the soldiers
Those enlisted in the army who fight alongside others in war. Viewed as pawns in most cases, but strong and loyal to one cause or another. Each serves with a different means of motivation- some, with no cause at all.

THIS GROUP IS FOR A SOLDIER OF ANY NATION As the wars advance, demands grow desperate. As does the government in charge. Young boys are often pulled from their homes and sent to base camps where they are deployed as soldiers. And only time will tell how far the efforts will push their people. Times are hard and Soldiers fight to regain that peace and control everyone is so madly grappling for.

Prior to the war the British Army was a small professional army, designed to be able to win quick victories by utilizing superior mobility and using technology in the place of manpower. The structure of the army had been organized in such a way that it sacrificed firepower for mobility and removed the fire support weapons that were needed to advance, over the battlefield, away from its commanders.

The army had analysed the lessons of the First World War and adopted them into inter-war doctrine, at the same time trying to predict how advances in weapons and technology might affect any future war.

A division typically was made up of;

  • three infantry brigades
  • a Medium Machine Gun (MMG) battalion (with 36 Vickers machine guns, in three companies, and one company of 16 4.2 inch Mortars);
  • a reconnaissance regiment;
  • a divisional artillery group which consisted of three motorised field artillery regiments each with twenty-four 25 pounder guns,
  • an anti-tank regiment with forty-eight anti-tank guns each
  • a light anti-aircraft regiment with fifty-four Bofors 40 mm guns
  • three field companies and one field park company of the Royal Engineers
  • three transport companies of the Royal Army Service Corps
  • an ordnance field park company of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps
  • three field ambulances of the Royal Army Medical Corps
  • a signals unit of the Royal Corps of Signals
  • and a provost company of the Royal Military Police.

During the war, the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers was formed to take over the responsibility of recovering and repairing vehicles and other equipment. A division generally had three workshop companies, and a recovery company from the REME.

aerial
This division deals with flight attacks. Separated into Squadrons, they are responsible for a majority of an armies first line defense. As sky captains, they have the most optimal point of views over any open battle.

Bombers, fighters and stealth crafts all assist as major elements of a successful army. While the British were not the first to make use of heavier-than-air military aircraft, the RAF is the world's oldest independent air force: that is, the first air force to become independent of army or navy control.

The Luftwaffe was the aerial warfare branch of the German Wehrmacht . The Luftwaffe were responsible for much of Eastern Europe's greatest damage. From air raids to one of their more unique characteristics (as opposed to other independent air forces) such as possession of an organic paratrooper force called Fallschirmjäger.

the medics
In every great battle- great war- you have injury and casualty. These are the men and women who have set their own lives aside to stay in camps assisting the wounded fresh from war. The medical group is responsible for looking after an accessing all injuries. They have an emergency authority rank higher than generals and are permitted to hold back any officer from duty if deemed incapable for continued service.

Aside from camps, the Medical group may also work in Bartholomew's Hospital in London, or any hospital likely encountered on the site. Anything from nurses to doctors to vets and nursemaids will be placed here.
