Info: A race of sentient machines, the reapers are an entatity bent on the extermination of all life in the galaxy. No one knows of thier existance but a few historians have gathered info about the extiction of other races but have never found any evidence to explain why. At the current moment Soverign is the only active Reaper, having been respondiable for all of the Great Wars that have occured on Earth by secretly feeding sending the planet's location to other factions so that they would battle each other for it. Soverign has been monitoring the situation on earth and beyond for years and has continued to manipulate events to help weaken all of the other factions. Now after determing that the damage from all of the previous wars have effectivlty destroyed any chance of an effective resistance, Soverign is now begining to mobileize it's forces to intiante a countdown sequence. Soverign will signal the other Reapers when it has determined the presice time to wipe out all factions in a singal blow.
Technology: Reaper tech is beyond anything that has ever been encountered. A blend of synthetic and organic parts, Reaper tech uses the power of both while carrying none of their weakness. At the current moment no one has encountered their technology, at least no one has come back to report it. A few rouge sctientes and settlers who settled on remote worlds began to drop out of contact when they were unkowingly settled near reaper tech. Becuase of this they became indoctrinated after just a few days and in most cases where "processed" by Soverign who picked them up after they alert it of their presence. It is unlcear if Reapers intially leave behind technology solely for the purpose of indoctrination or if it is just a defense mechanism. Either way it is best to avoid it unless using highly-speacilaised gear that can resist indoctrination.
Forces: Currently Soverign is the only Reaper and it is surroounded by a small fleet. Not wanting to attract attention, Soverign intinally keeps it's forces small to avoid unessceray detection or battles. Despite this, Soverign commands a fairly large ground force, bigger than most would expect from a small fleet. To offset this Soverign itself is fully capable of destroying an entire fleet by itself, but if surrounded it will not survive. Soverign forces are covert team, prefering to avoid open battles and favoring sabatoge. Currently Soverign is continuing to monitor the developments of the other races to determine if intervention is nesssceary or not to keep things from becoming too "one-sided".
An extremely dangerous piece of reaper tech, Markers are respondialbe for the deaths of billions of lives. They are organinc rocks that are encode with gentic codes that allow Markers to interact with other speices. Through reasons unknown Markers relaise microscopic cells that infect other organics while being untraceable and undetectable. When the victims die, either through insanity or natural causes, the cells are triggered and begin to rapidly mutate the deceased body into a horrific killing machine. Markers are completly self-aware, depsite thier misleading appearence of being just a rock. They are capable of laying dominat for hundreds of millions of years and know when to activate themselves when it feels the time is right. Besides creating necromorphs, Markers also have the abiltiy to indoctrinate other people. They differ from indoctrination beacons in that they drive other people insane in order to create more necromorphs. Howerver, Markers are capable of controlling individual if the person is weak minded or willining acepts it. Markers are the hearts of all necromorph outbreaks and the only way to stop an infection is to desstory the Marker that started it. I fthe Marker is destroyed then the Necromorphs instantly die. However only necromorphs that where created from that destroyed Marker are dead, ones from other Markers will still be alive. Markers decive other races into making them beileve that they are harmless rocks but are so uniquie that people study them to understand their markings. In most cases no one ever finds out that they are ticking time bombs and only an extreme few ever find out thier true nature. If a marker is found it should be destroyed IMMEDITATLY. NO ONE should attempt to try and capture one or study one. Markers are sentiet and intelligent beings and could easily manipulate its captors into causing another outbreak. Above all else, Reapers have direct contact with Markers and when one activates, the Reapers will be alerted of it's location.
