  • Name: TerraWare Corporation
  • Type: Corporation
  • Subfactions: Le TRON de Lutetia, G.C.I., Masaki
  • Headquarters: N◎VA, TerraWare Arcology

TerraWare is a North American company launched onto the worldwide stage by a single genius. Their DAK operating system, TW-Windows, has achieved explosive market dominance and made them a corporation as well known as Chihaya and Iwasaki.

Thought TerraWare was originally a software company, they have diversified in recent years by purchasing Le TRON de Lutetia's hardware and systems factories and G.C.I's cyberware labs, giving them a presence in a number of high-tech industries. They also have interests in Triumph, a manufacturer of vehicle TRONs and systems; Hypnos, a developer of sleep aids and other psychoapps run on the IANUS; and Red Pepper, and up-and-coming biotech and cyberware researcher. Their latest endeavor is to break into the entertainment industry with exclusive games, films and music.

As with all the megacorps, TerraWare's rise to prominence was paved by a shadowy road of illicit activities. Their extensive use of human experimentation is well known, but they also shamelessly engage in sabotage. At the heart of this is G.C.I's black operations team, the Numbers.

Within the Numbers, there are various classes of agent. The "Triple Numbers" and "Double Numbers" serve as mobile field commanders. Within them, the agents known as the "Teens" are as individually capable as an entire platoon of mundane soldiers, and have subjugated cities alone in the past. The top Numbers are said to be capable of, with a single glance or a single gesture, wiping out the armies of entire countries with their superhuman powers. This is the fruit of all of TerraWare's research and financial resources.

TerraWare's ties to the Purification Faction are the stuff of rumors, but deep indeed. It's well known that the founder of cthe company, William Tamon, was integral to the Purification Faction. Though no sign of William Tamon has been seen in some time, the Numbers are known to have worked in tandem with the Purification Faction, and its own soldiers, known as the 'Archangels,' use TerraWare equipment and techniques.
