Uniform And Colors: The Invictus do not have one uniform, allowing each of their members to wear whatever makes them more comfortable or effective in and out of combat situations. In order to identify each other they often sport the colors red and black or orange and black as well as the Invictus logo. Members who aren't fans of those colors sport their own with a modified Invictus logo matching their preferred colors.

Despite this, members of the Invictus are still given the option of wearing a standard operations uniform which usually consists of black fatigues or a black jumpsuits, a combat vest, and sometimes body armor.

Spacecraft Weaponry


Invictus weaponry on spacecrafts is very basic and straightforward. Turrets, missiles, directed energy weapons, and advanced shielding for space combat and elements. Kinetic rounds fired from Invictus craft is made from several metals and other elements to form a new, extremely strong, alloy. Identified as being used to create the shells and rounds include tungsten, hyperdiamond, steel, impervium and iron.

Invictus spacecrafts make use of several forms of shielding at once, something the scientists within the Invictus called Aegis. Official name is unknown. Listed below are the more innovative, and destructive, of the weapons in use.

- The Hose: The Hose is an energy based weapon located on all Invictus spacecraft in various sizes, resulting in various amounts of damage according to size and ship. It earned it's name for being a directed beam of energy that can be fired at an enemy and sustained for long periods of time dependent on power available in the ship. The energy can also be fired like a projectile. It's goal is too completely overload or bypass shielding, cutting through an enemy craft's hull like butter. It's effects on land and buildings is more devastating than on ships.

- Gravity Well: A gravity well projector is an apparatus used to create interdiction fields. By simulating the gravity shadow of a planet or other celestial body, often called a gravity well, a ship's travel through hyperspace could be halted or their jump to hyperspace could be rendered impossible within the simulated gravity shadow. These generally large gravity well generators were most often used to counteract hit-and-run tactics and pin outmaneuvered or outnumbered enemies in place.
---------------------------------

The Invictus' history goes back to the crusades. During the 1600s, they were officially formed by a man called The Oro in order to combat the forces of the Christians across the holy land. Because of the Invictus' appeal and the numbers they were able to gain in a short amount of time, they were able reclaim the holy land for the Muslims. As the years passed, their influence and numbers increased, expanding Islam to other planets and even realms.

Eventually the Invictus strayed from their religious roots, various incarnations of the organization have existed under different leadership or as a result of the issues going on in their neck of the woods. Today the Invictus lives on as a business and mercenary company.

Primarily the Invictus is made up of many different sub-genus' of Human, though different races and species tend to join their ranks. They range from wizards, shapeshifters, vampires, witches and everything in between including non-powered individuals. Human and otherwise.

Members of the Invictus usually wear light chest body armor unless there's a specific need, or preference, for anything heavier. Members are usually armed with various weapons depending on their personal wants.But, the most common among the Invictus are Glock-30 .45s and Colt M4A1s.

The armor they use is made from an unknown alloy that has made it more than capable to withstand all types of damage, though the armor is sometimes more susceptible to energy based weapons. Personal shield generators help to balance this out.

Their weapons and bullets are made from the same alloy. The bullets also have clear tips which clearly holds a lightly glowing highly acidic and highly toxic teal liquid. When the bullets come into contact with a person the tips of the bullets explode in a sense, sending the teal liquid out to burn the flesh and bone completely, also infecting the wound with it's toxic properties within minutes.
