Peace keepers are the highest division of armed forces in Haven. They are much more versatile and valuable than sweepers since they can specialize in anything from military measures to medicine. Every keeperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s main duty is to defend Cyl but depending on a keeper’s area of expertise, skill, and rank, work varies greatly. Most keepers are offensive soldiers who act as military force in the case of emergency. There are also intelligence keepers (spies and strategists), medical keepers (doctors or nurses), and desk keepers (secretaries and government officials).
All keepers must first graduate from Keeper Academy, a vigorous institution for training, or have an extensive background prior to entering Haven.
There are four main classes of peace keepers. Ranked from highest to lowest:
Class A: Very few exist. Class A requires exceptional drive and skill to acquire. While some may oversee a large platoon of lesser ranked keepers, most work independently. All intelligence keepers are Class A. There are also a specialized select four, such as Eleftherios, who supervise all sweepers in a certain sector.
Class B: All practicing medical keepers are Class B or higher. Military keepers often have Class C sections and access to the outside. Injured or retired keepers Class B or higher usually teach at the academy.
Class C: Most Keepers will never pass this class. They have shown above average talent and dedication. Military keepers of this rank come in pairs of two and must look after their partner during group assignments.
Class D: Class D keepers are often secretaries or grunts, but even a rank this low requires extensive training in their skill set.
The most pressured rule of military keepers is lack of emotion. They are not allowed to care outside of their duty. This includes marrying or practicing religion of any kind; their devotion must be entirely to Haven. The last step to becoming a Class A keeper is to leave your old life behind by burning any pictures and belongings you might have treasured.
Some of these rules were not applied to the first wave of peace keepers. The combatants who entered Cyl with their families were allowed to keep them but requirements have become far stricter over the years since few from the initial move remain. Should a keeper be caught committing such a crime they are discharged or – depending on its severity – executed.
