Description

  • Name: Iwasaki Group
  • Type: Corporation
  • Subfactions: Iwasaki Heavy Industries, Rokuhara Company, TV Iwasaki
  • Headquarters: Iwasaki Orbital

The Iwasaki Group is one of the megacorps that achieved worldwide prominence following the Hazards. Though their headquarters are located on an orbital, they are presently attempting to re-enter the megaplex of TOKYO N◎VA which they at one time withdrew from.

Iwasaki is an international company with a presence in many nations as well as many industries. When people hear the name "Iwasaki," they might think of their financial services, their general mercantile operations, or of course their arms manufacturing; these are all under the umbrella of Iwasaki Heavy Industries, which has diverse operations based in a variety of locations around the world.

Iwasaki also manufactures products of greater interest to the common urbanite. Fashion, vehicles, medicine, and cyberware are infustries they have a notable presence in.

Underlying all the many ways in which Iwasaki makes its money is a common thread. Centered in their arcology in TOKYO N◎VA, Iwasaki's Intelligence Handling Department works tirelessly to support their extralegal operations. Iwasaki's 'Public Relations Team', known for their cutting-edge armaments and imperturbable demeanor, consists of both talented street fighters and elite ex-military soldiers.

As a byproduct of their military R&D, Iwasaki manufactures advanced weapons and cyberware, as well as biotech and psycho-apps developed as an application of their physiological remodeling research. Their front-line combatants eagerly adops these innovations. Rumor has it that they employ even Ayakashi.

Four field armies - named Byakko, Seiryuu, Suzaku, and Genbu - make up Iwasaki's corporate army, the largest in the world. Each field army is on the scale of a PMC in itself. The Japanese Army has also adapted Iwasaki military technology, and lends them plentiful assistance in return.

Not beneath mention are the units said to be lead by the protege of the company itself - the elite "Iwasaki Oniwaban" shadow operatives, and the general security force known as the Rokuhara Company. The soldiers of these units are, naturally, graced with Iwasaki's finest equipment and techniques.
