Nightwatch formed in the aftermath of [[Operation Fulcrum]]. The group was formed by [[Ivianna Canciaris]], who learned that other freelance mercenaries in the Mirandian region got paid significantly less than they did. In response, Ivianna gathered up allies - Lagunov, Isabelle, and Vidian - and after securing a base of operations, the group set up shop. From a mere five members, Nightwatch grew over time, and quickly grew to be one of Miranda's most successful PMCs, to the point where virtually every other PMC on Fontraile took notice. Within a year, Nightwatch had exploded in size to over 300 combat employees and almost double that number of support staff; much of this expansion was due to Nightwatch being responsible for the capture of [[Regina Destralli]] of [[Natural Selection]], as well as the Assassination of [[Tal]], the leader of [[Destiny's Call]]. Cutting the head off the two biggest and most powerful militant groups on the continent caused a massive shift in power, and left many PMCs wondering how this one upstart got the better of them.
Nightwatch's resources and popularity exploded when it was responsible for the capture of [[Regina Destralli]], the leader of [http://fontraile.wikispaces.com/Natural+Selection Natural Selection]. It further grew with the elimination of Tal, which the small PMC also got credit for despite it actually being the work of [[Cima Marin]]. Things changed dramatically as Nightwatch quickly gained equipment and support. By all accounts, Nightwatch now employs roughly 300 employees in combat capacity, and about half that number in non-combat roles. The various founding members of Nightwatch have since become leaders in their respective fields, in addition to being full-time operatives. Elisa serves as the head of Nightwatch's intel branch; Lagunov is largely the one in charge of Nightwatch's vehicle pool, Vidian serves as Ivianna's adjutant, and Isabelle acts as both a full-fledged combat operative and as quartermaster.<br />

Nightwatch itself specializes in surgical strikes and tactical operations, and is noted for its skill in both wetwork and security operations. When assigned a mission from its handlers, Nightwatch has a reputation for getting it done no matter how unpleasant; as the PMC accredited with cutting off the heads of both of Fontraile's most powerful militant groups, Nightwatch's reputation - both for its recent accomplishments, and for the fact that it came out of nowhere to achieve them - both proceed it.<br />
+
Nightwatch operates differently from many PMCs; whereas some, like [[Merchants of Menace]], rely upon more conventional military work, Nightwatch's forces specialize in shock attacks and overwhelming force. The group is exceedingly good at disrupting enemy communications, eliminating enemy commanders, and removing the ability of their opposition to effectively retaliate. Other PMCs that do wetwork, such as [[Black Fang]] or [[Il Vectrus]] have found Nightwatch to be an annoying and increasingly present competitor for contracts, as well as a merciless poacher of potential talent. Many of the larger PMCs are watching [[Operation Haven]] with deep interest, as Nightwatch is only poised to grow bigger if it succeeds at unseating the government of [[Falkovnia]].

Overview and HistoryEdit

Nightwatch formed in the aftermath of Operation Fulcrum. The group was formed by Ivianna Canciaris, who learned that other freelance mercenaries in the Mirandian region got paid significantly less than they did. In response, Ivianna gathered up allies - Lagunov, Isabelle, and Vidian - and after securing a base of operations, the group set up shop. From a mere five members, Nightwatch grew over time, and quickly grew to be one of Miranda's most successful PMCs, to the point where virtually every other PMC on Fontraile took notice. Within a year, Nightwatch had exploded in size to over 300 combat employees and almost double that number of support staff; much of this expansion was due to Nightwatch being responsible for the capture of Regina Destralli of Natural Selection, as well as the Assassination of Tal, the leader of Destiny's Call. Cutting the head off the two biggest and most powerful militant groups on the continent caused a massive shift in power, and left many PMCs wondering how this one upstart got the better of them.

Nightwatch operates differently from many PMCs; whereas some, like Merchants of Menace, rely upon more conventional military work, Nightwatch's forces specialize in shock attacks and overwhelming force. The group is exceedingly good at disrupting enemy communications, eliminating enemy commanders, and removing the ability of their opposition to effectively retaliate. Other PMCs that do wetwork, such as Black Fang or Il Vectrus have found Nightwatch to be an annoying and increasingly present competitor for contracts, as well as a merciless poacher of potential talent. Many of the larger PMCs are watching Operation Haven with deep interest, as Nightwatch is only poised to grow bigger if it succeeds at unseating the government of Falkovnia.

Originally, Nightwatch was very small, having only just set up and boasted a mere 5 members: Ivianna, unquestionably, was in charge, with Isabelle serving as her second-in-command. Lagunov serves as the group's firearms specialist, and was largely responsible for keeping the group's firearms working and maintained (arguments over creative touches he's administered to Ivianna's weapons have allegedly been pretty loud), and Vidian specializes in infiltration operations.

Base of OperationEdit

A manor house just outside Miranda's capital, which goes by several nicknames - Nightwatch HQ and Shrike's Nest being the most common. Occupied originally by Paramisian deserters, the manor was retaken by Nightwatch in a raid, and slowly converted into their base of operations.

It has since had multiple out-buildings - mostly serving as a vehicle hangar, barracks and helipad facility - added, as well as an old dirt landing strip for aircraft (currently only used to recieve supplies). Over time, the base has expanded further with a full-fledged airfield and maintenance bay, defensive structures ringing the base, and a nearby tent-city that is the Gargoyle Refugee Camp.
