Description

  • Type: Corporation, Military, Criminal
  • Subfactions: Si Chu Corporation, Heilongjiang, Black Dragon
  • Headquarters: Hong Kong HEAVEN

Heilong Chemical is a megacorp from the Empire of Xia. Originally a drug manufacturer, they have since expanded into a wide variety of chemistry-related industries, with brands from the soft drink manufacturer Si Chu to the water company Heilongjiang under their umbrella, they are also making inroads into the production of foodstuffs. In addition, they've purchased a controlling share of the biotechnology company BIOS. Like the other megacorps, they maintain their sovereignty with a private army under the banner of the PMC Black Dragon.

When you hear the name Heilong on the streets, though, it's still mostly when drugs are the topic of conversation. Whether it's drugs that enhance combat capabilities or drugs that give you a high, every young person knows their products. But there are darker rumors surrounding Heilong.

Most of Heilong's products are said to be the result of human experimentation in their secret black sites. Naturally, they also engage in a full range of other illicit activities and have many operatives devoted to the cause. Their "Fourth General Affairs Department" is the center of their illegal activities, and is said to conduct large-scale experimentation in Red Areas throughout the world.

The operatives, however, do not only conduct experiments. Using their abundant knowledge of drugs, they often infiltrate other corporations and forcibly "recruit" their star employees. They have perfected drugs, brainwashing, and re-education techniques to ensure the compliance of their employees. They are also no strangers to using direct force, and maintain a corps of skilled pilots trained in using Armor Gears and Walkers with explosive weaponry.

Heilong's dangerous reputation does not end with them; they have close ties to the criminal underground. They are allies of the Triads, the organized crime syndicate native to the Xia Empire, and provide them with both financial and material support. Many leading Triad members are known to make use of Heilong products, and in return, the Triads often provide assistance with Heilong's business operations in the spirit of mutual cooperation.
