Nicknamed 'The Red Corps', and 'The Blue Corps', Sage Corps Soldiers, Officers, and Commanders are divided into these two factions within the overall Sage Corps organization. The Red Corps stand 5000 strong, and the blue is constantly growing with plans to bring it up to 5000 as well. Ultimately the goal is to bring the total number of these two corps to 20,000 each, and promote the standing 10,000 Sage Corps forces into an elite 'Gold Corps' to serve as the end all strike force of the invasion of Felonia. 50,000 Sages in all. Yet 50,000 individuals with the power requirements of Sage Corps standards is an unprecedented number for a single force. Even the Oniwaban of The Felonian Civil War that fought The Second Felonian Empire, and The Tax Federation to a standstill for over a century numbered under 15,000 at the height of their power. Yet The Sage Corps have re-discovered the means of artificially creating powerful Sages. This knowledge lays at the very heart of the organization, and is also the epicenter of the unimaginable horror that lays behind the facade of honorable ambitions of conquest and the purification and advancement of the canid race. Even Advisor Noric, founder of The Sage Corps, doesn't know how dark the depths of his creation truly are. Only Agama of The Death Corps knows the true terror, and he's chosen to keep it hidden from Noric in exchange for his full cooperation in the creation of an ultimate sage. Though the Sagely powers of the Sage Corps are their main advantage over prior Salvatican armies, it's far from their only one. The level of technology the organization has access to is truly astounding by Salvatican standards. It meets, or in some cases, exceeds that of Felonian technology. The Sage Corps uniform for example. It's far more than a simple suit of armor. It's a complex network of nano bots and hybrid alloys that form a powered exoskeleton over the user. The Sage Corps armor is incredibly resistant to damage from ballistic impacts, and it's temperature controls allow the user to withstand temperatures as high as 500 degrees, or as low as -50 with only mild discomfort for the wearer. In addition to these defensive measures, there are also a number of other more direct defensive and offensive mechanisms. The left arm's gauntlet is able to manifest a powerful plasma based light shield for the user, and the wearers individual strength is increased by a factor of 15. Despite these advantages, it's a bit of a problem that the bonuses the suit offers are somewhat negated by the bonuses of being a Sage. The mark of a Sage is the field known as aura, and one of the most distinguishing marks of aura is that it effectively removes an individual to varying degrees from field effects. That is, electromagnetic, gravitational, strong and weak nuclear interactions are 'locked' at their values the moment a Sage becomes active. This effectively puts an end to all outside influences on the Sage, such as the exosuit. Still, most Sage Corps soldiers aren't able to gain access to the benefits the suit provides without considerable exertion of their auras, so it greatly increases their field time.
