Obviously, this RP centers around the eponymous Trinity Alliance; all players will start off as members of Trinity, carrying out day to day life within the alliance.
Formally, Trinity splits its functions and missions among four divisions. Division I is command and internal affairs, overseeing the smooth running of the alliance. Division II is public affairs and military operations, and is the bulk of the organization. Division III is science and technology, focused on rebuilding the shattered infrastructure of the world as well as maintaining Trinity’s military superiority. Lastly, Division IV is training and education, focused on teaching Animata how to control their powers, providing citizens a basic education, and bringing new recruits up to Trinity standards. Your characters start as recent graduates of Division IV and newly-inducted members of Division II.
Each division is overseen by a Division Commander. While Divisions I, II, and IV have a more civilian feel and a looser hierarchy, Division II is fairly militaristic and features a strict ranking system.
The ranks in Division II are, in descending order:
- Division Commander
- Platoon Commander
The division is divided into three platoons, which are composed of many individual squadrons. Sergeants coordinate the squadrons for the Platoon Commander. Individual squads are led by squad captains. Lastly, elite, commando, trooper, and cadet denote an individual soldier’s skill and ability, with promotions handed out for exceptional behavior in battle. The players will begin as cadets in a single squad, and work themselves up to elites as they carry out missions for the Trinity Alliance. NOTE:
There are six members of the squad, as well as a captain. All players will begin in the same squad, with captaincy first come, first served. If enough players sign up,
another squad will be formed, with another seven slots opened up.
In addition to the military rankings, Trinity manages a power-rating system of all its members, to determine the individual strength of each Animata. Periodically, Trinity will simply host a practical exam in the form of a special mission to determine the strength of a squadron’s members.
Power ratings are, in descending order:
Power ratings are gauged exponentially, not linearly. Each rank is roughly twice as powerful as the rank below; thus, an SS-rank is over 100 times as powerful as an E-rank. Of course, this is a rough estimate, and should be treated with caution.
Power ratings are denoted at the end of an Animata’s ranking (for example, Captain, AA-rank). All cadets are marked at E-rank upon graduation from Division IV; their third or fourth mission is typically their special rating mission.
