Sora Corp (Chinese: 索拉公司 Suǒlā Gōngsī) (officially translated in English as Solar Company) is one of the the main antagonistic factions of Contra Returns. It is the largest biochemical technology company in World E-137. It promotes humanitarian ideals and carries out the cyber-transformation public welfare surgery program with the aim to improve the quality of life of its population. However, this is just a cover for their actual clandestine objectives, which are the experimentation on living human beings in order to create an army of cybernetically enhanced super soldiers with extremely strong combat capabilities.

History[]

Sora Corp is the largest biochemical technology company in World E-137. It is a highly technologically advanced research facility which has also organized a welfare public free clinic. It adverts itself through the media as a company with strong humanitarian ideals, whose mission is to promote and carry out the cyber-transformation public welfare surgery program, which involves the implantation and/or replacement of body parts with cybernetically enhanced prosthetics to improve the population's quality of life - these can range from deaf people regaining hearing that is far beyond that of ordinary people, the blind being able to feel visual signals, people with frostbite or Alzheimer's disease having the chance to return to have a normal life, cardiopulmonary remodeling operations, etc., in addition to genetic modifications and organ replacements that improve their recovery and even enhance the functions of the human body. These procedures go up to the point of even being able to give the patient extraordinary beauty and physique.

While these technological achievements have gained Sora Corp prestige and the trust of the general public, there are many who aren't willing to take the risk of this immature technology. Furthermore, their procedures are known to be very expensive, and if the customer is unable to pay for the full amount, their operation program is abruptly terminated, regardless of the fate of the patient.

Sora Corp's cyber-transformation welfare program was the answer to the Government neglecting the environment for economic development, which resulted in frequent occurrences of severe pollution and diseases. Cyber-technology could thus potentially turn the world into a utopia.

However, unknown to most, the company's main goal is to build an army of cyborg super soldiers with superior destructive capabilities as part of an agreement they made with the Government to replace common human soldiers. For this end, through various clandestine contacts with the proper people in charge, they manage to get their hands on war prisoners, which they then transform into mindless, ruthless and complete mechanical killers with extremely strong combat capabilities. With this self-developed military, Sora Corp is also known to frequently conduct raids on impoverished human settlements and rule them with an iron fist.

The head of the company is a mysterious man who simply goes by the name of Dr. J. In certain extraordinary instances, Dr. J himself will personally seek those that may have the potential of becoming even superior cyber soldiers to convince (or blackmail) them to accept the cyber-transformation surgery, or to take part in any other of his dangerous experiments. This, of course, with the hidden intention to gain control over them during the process.

The resulting soldiers don't have a long lifespan, however, and after a unit's service life is reached, their body functions will rapidly decline. In order to save maintenance costs, Sora Corp would secretly destroy them and erase their memories, and their bodies would then be abandoned in the garbage disposal station.
