Weston-Yamada

"Designing your Future."

Weston Yamada also knows as "the Company", has a wide range of business such as; high-tech armaments, synthetic humanoids, spaceships, computer parts, terraforming equipment, and household appliances. It also offers shipping and receiving services, among other ventures.


Following an aggressive expansion into terraforming new colonial worlds, Weston-Yamada secured many rights and privileges from the United States government. One of those privileges is the close relationship with the USCM; the Colonial Marines use corporate-supplied equipment in exchange for protecting and monitoring border colonies. This, however, does not mean that the interests of the company are aligned with the USCM. It is more accurate to say that Weston-Yamada considers the USCM a valuable, but still disposable, asset.


Weston-Yamada also has enough wealth and influence to hire private military contractors. These are highly trained mercenaries, generally ex-military veterans, who do black site protection detail, undertake dangerous assignments, and otherwise supply Weston-Yamada with firepower in the absence of the USCM. They are compensated well for their services, and demand is always there. Rumors speak of even more well-equipped and well-selected military units within Weston-Yamada's employment, but that is not officially verified.

History

The formation of the mega-corporation Weston-Yamada came about as a result of a prosperous merger of the Weston Industries Company and the Yamada Bio-foundries Corporation in the early days of the formation of the Royal Empire of the Shining Sun (RESS). The two companies, specializing individually in varying sections, fields and industries, suddenly had an unprecedented amount of knowledge, workforce and the financial/political backing from several of Earths governments to attempt to stimulate their economic strength. With this start, the company flourished, rapidly expanding it's market shares in medicine, armaments, weaponry, rocketry and more. Growing more and more powerful in terms of technological progress and economic prosperity, W-Y was soon to become the most prominent and widespread corporation on the planet, starting to acquire contracts and deals with military and governments from all nations, though reserving their best and most valuable contracted services to the RESS.


Following the colonization of the Sol System and the outbreak and end of the Sol Campaign and Operation Canton Weston-Yamada quickly became a major power equal to that of any major nation in existence. Their influence runs very deep within even the USCM where they exert their influence and power with officer's who identity as pro-company interests or 'Songbirds' as they are often called. It is rumored various congressmen in the UA and parliament members in RESS are under the influence through bribes by WY who seek to utilize their militaries and economic strengths to expand their own interests. An uneasy relationship however exists between the Third Fleet and WY, notably those stationed in Tychon's Rift Sector under the Second Battlegroup due to the number of USCM vessels vanishing while attempting to support Company colonies at the request of influenced higher authorities in the military. There have also been a number of incidents involving skirmishes between USCM and WY forces which have been largely suppressed from the media however the worst was reported to have seen 43 marines and 32 PMCs dead with over a few more hundred on both sides wounded.

Contracted Colonies

LV-624 - The Colony Known as Lazarus Landing is a W-Y Archaeological site, exploring rumored ancient temple likes structures sighted on the surface. The Colony falls under the purview of the Special Research Division and is closed for unauthorized visitors at this time. The lush tropical climate makes for some interesting local fauna and flora but is unfortunately the victim of an insect nuisance, the bugs making life sometimes hard on this colony.

PMCs

Weston-Yamada PMCs are military personnel owned and operated by the company. They are equipped with advanced modern military equipment and weaponry akin to the USCM and similar national militaries. The tasks of the PMCs are never limited to one specific job and they are often deployed on 'shadow missions' and their deployment is often kept secret from the USCM to avoid conflict with the anti-corporate officers in the USCM.


The recruitment process largely consists of those who have personal contacts with higher Weston-Yamada employees and those who have caught the eye and have been hand-picked due to their superior abilities in the field and willingness to obey company directives for a large sum of money regardless of their morale beliefs.


Following the defeat of the Dust Raiders and the withdrawal of the United Americas of the Tychon's Rift sector, a group of employees became skilled mercenaries. They are part of Weston-Yamada's Task Force Oberon that was stationed aboard the USCSS Royce, a powerful Weston-Yamada cruiser that patrols the outer edges of Tychon's Rift. Under the directive of Weston-Yamada's board member Johan Almric, they act as private security for company science teams. The USCSS Royce contains a crew of roughly two hundred PMCs, and one hundred scientists and support personnel.


Rumors say that a Weston-Yamada Special Task Force known as "Royal" of the USCSS Lunalorne are part of a different specialization, designed to capture anomalies associated with alien and supernatural life.

Ranks

The Elite it the standard body of the PMCs. Handpicked or due to overdue favors, they are responsible for carrying out designated Weston-Yamada operations without question. Their equipment is superior to that of any national military and are organized in teams in order to effectively carry out the Company's wishes on a large scale.
PMC-Medic.png
Support Specialist
The Support Specialist are either trained or recruited due to their superior abilities providing friendly suppressive fire. They are ultimate support force of the PMC teams dispatched across company holdings in the galaxy. They are equipped with a smartgun and ensure the small but elite team can carry out their mission regardless of what fire-power they may be suppressed by.
PMC-Medic.png
Medical Specialist
The Medic is the standard frontline medically trained personal that is responsible for the well-being of all PMC team members during an assigned mission. Their task is to ensure the team is in perfect health to carry out their job effectively and with the least casualties to prevent a unneeded loss of money.

They are often equipped with powerful Anti-Tank Sniper Rifles which can easily kill any soldier, civilian, or politician in a single shot and will show no remorse or hesitation in doing so.

They are the ultimate leaders and experts in how to move in quickly and do what they to do before getting out without an issue.

Relations

Factions Connections
UPP Patch.png UPP Despite the tensions between the governments of the UPP, RESS and USCM, W-Y occasionally deals with the UPP, supplying terraforming equipment, surveyors and mining equipment. There are a few instances of UPP selling W-Y colonies that the UPP find to be too costly to maintain, or unworth the expense after they deplete natural resources. The rumour mill suggests that W-Y may be supplying the UPP with illegal combat synths, but no evidence has ever been found to support these rumours and are denied by W-Y Executives as merely a smear tactic.
CLF Patch.png CLF Entirely hostile towards the W-Y Company, the CLF have taken to especially targeting W-Y owned/operated colonies in their crusade to liberate the downtrodden of the USCM. W-Y have employed several PMC divisions to patrol space near their colonies and assets in the Tychus rift in an effort to minimize asset loss and strike at the leadership of the CLF in an attempt to curb further insurrection.
USCM Patch.png USCM The USCM is the second largest customer of the Company, one that has a "special" relationship with the Company, the USCM is largely funded and outfitted by W-Y designs and weaponry. In return, the USCM assigns various smaller units and divisions to deal with Company requests as a begrudging part of the many contracts and deals that the Company has wrangled the Government into signing over the years. This relationship is strained by occasional disappearances of Military personnel and assets.
RESS Patch.png RESS The RESS and W-Y enjoy the closest relation that the Company has, being the birthplace of the Company and the fact that all Board Members and the CEO swear fealty to the Emperor. Although this relationship is strained at times, when the Company causes issues with the USCM, the RESS is also in the line of ire of the USCM and the Board have been summoned infront of the Emperor more than once to explain themselves and ordered to restore relations.
