Infiltrator
Infiltrator_by_crazy80sguy.png

An Infiltrator is not a thief. He does not hide in the crowd, picking pockets and robbing the less fortunate in back alleys. He is trained in stealth and is one of the few classes that can integrate into echan societies without raising any eyebrows. Some creep into other cultures, make friends, and when the order is given, kill them. Others simply observe, record, and return the data for tacticians or scientists. From some bastions, networks of observers never involve or take action in other cultures. Some may believe the extermination of rival outside leaders is ital to their bastion's security. The Infiltrator is the most important class of a team of techans as he enters areas others fear to tread and is usually the first one to enter a dangerous area outside of the bastion, of which there are many.

Role: In a team, the Infiltrator operates mostly as a spy. He approaches by stealth into enemy camps or communities. He also operates alone from the group mostly, taking orders and vanishing. In combat, he remains out of sight and operates as a sniper, striking targets from afar. though he can sometimes lead a group, it is unlikely. Of all other classes, an infiltrator works best along with a faceman as their skills complement each other. In the field of counter-intelligence, whenever two operatives in the field are teamed up, there are always an infiltrator and a faceman. Even when bastions send out teams into the echan wilderness, they begin with an infiltrator and a faceman and then fill the rest of the group as needed. Usually the third choice is a recon. Only when the group grows above three does a group start consisting of medics, soldiers, or other fighting classes.
