The Verite Syndicate is a conglomerate of private contractors and manufacturers that had originally sprung up to resource the Ternion Corps and the Republic Protectorate of Kamino. Zacros Verite, honorary colonel in the Corps, united the firms under one banner in Year 24 to address concerns about what was lurking in the Unknown Regions. With their combined ability, the Syndicate has formed into a self-contained expeditionary force for the purposes of exploring and mapping the Unknown Regions and documenting evidence of threats, and serving as the galaxy’s first line of defense.
Syndicate forces work closely with Ternion and Reformed Army of the Republic forces, and consist primarily of clone soldiers and crew. Their ranks are not restricted to clones, however, and all who share the Syndicate’s concern for exploration and galactic security are urged to enquire about joining.
