Jaegers is an umbrella term used to refer to several groups of mercenaries, scrappers and bounty hunters that are naturally immune to the negative effects of the Damned City. They frequently make raids inside the city to not only search for its treasures, but also to deal with the overrunning Fiends that inhabit the place.

Description[]

The Jaegers are living beings –mainly consisting on humans– that are naturally immune to the negative psychic effects of the Damned City, meaning that they are able to enter it without losing their minds, unlike the rest of the population. Due to this rare ability, many Jaegers hire themselves as scavengers, scrappers, bounty hunters and even mercenaries, who, for the right price, will enter the city and face any Fiends they encounter to loot it of its treasures, which usually consist on artifacts and relics of alien technology, as well as other diverse riches. All members of the Rogue Corps are Jaegers, and thus, they participate in these scavenging practices.

History[]

Looking to find a cure to the Damned City's psychic effects on humans by replicating the immunity the Jaegers innately had to it, the SwanLabs medical research company sent in a group of scientists leaded by Dr. Claude Banks, who had successfully created a serum that granted this effect and wanted to perform a field test on a greater scale. However, they eventually lost contact with them; and so, Ms. Fiona Swift, CEO of the company, hired the services of the Rogue Corps to look for them.

The Rogue Corps successfully managed to find the doctor, but after coming across some hostile encounters with General Phoenix and his forces, they had to enter the city once again and take refuge in it. Unfortunately, Dr. Banks's serum didn't have the lasting effect he expected and he too ended up losing his mind.

After many more struggles, the Rogue Corps ultimately managed to shut down the city, and with it, all of its negative effects. While they were praised as heroes for their efforts and somehow managed to keep in business after these events, it is unknown what happened to all the rest of the Jaeger groups, since their immunity abilities weren't required anymore.
