Ave Intergalactic Summit,

I am Fleet Captain Aldrith Shutaq of PIE Inc., and it pleases me to announce that our alliance has initiated a pilot program tailored to gathering Kameira fighting units that have been trapped within the capsuleer economy and utilize them for defensive and humanitarian needs within the 24th Imperial Crusade's sphere of operations. The following is a summary of the scope and intent of the program as presented in a PIE internal missive on the subject. Further details will be provided in the subsequent post.

Quote:
Considering the problems of Kameira soldiers and units being openly available on capsuleer markets, becoming lost or disenfranchised from the Empire by capsuleer ineptitude and neglect, and the event of aforementioned individuals and units coming under the employ/unwilling control of parties/entities not of Imperial origin and/or hostile to the Empire, it falls under Praetorian responsibility to take efforts to secure authority over Kameiras that have been separated from their normal duties by capsuleer involvement and to return them to work befitting the nature of such servants of God and Empire. PIE representatives will identify groups of Kameiras that are inappropriately utilized by other capsuleers, negotiate (as appropriate) for their release to PIE jurisdiction, and induct them directly into the alliance’s ground forces. Considering alliance involvement in the CONCORD Emergency Militia War Powers Act Amarr/Minmatar warzone, Kameira units that fall under the PIE banner shall be utilized to secure Amarrian civilian settlements and assets within the warzone and ensure they are protected from the growing threat of clone and conventional ground forces employed by the Tribal Liberation Force, their contractors and their associates. This will be achieved by deploying set numbers of Kamieras to conflict zones in order to act as special op supplement forces to baseliner military forces and to provide additional training to such forces. PIE Kameira forces will also be tasked with providing/distributing material aid to affected civilian populations and to directly protect said populations when they come under attack.


Effective immediately, we are calling upon any pilots that have Kameira soldiers in their custody to donate them to the PIE alliance through contract or other negotiable means, or to provide for them in an otherwise appropriate manner. We thank you for your consideration and cooperation.

NOTE: Kameiras that are effectively and appropriately employed do not fall under the domain of this program; the goal is to collect and utilize Kameiras that are being left idle in capsuleer hangars or being employed by capsuleers that are hostile to the Empire.

Force Composition Report:

PIE Initial Group:
1,820 soldiers (x26 Group of Kameiras)

Donation from Ston Momaki:

The following is a detailed missive on the reasoning behind and intended functioning of the the program:

Quote:
// - Phase 1: Acquisition of Kameira Units

Amarrian agents often contract capsuleers to transport goods, equipment and personnel that are vital to the functioning of their respective corporations and the Empire at large. These contracts sometimes include the transportation of Kameiras to various postings around the cluster. Regrettably, not all capsuleers fulfill the contracts and will keep the Kameiras in effective limbo within their own hangars, or will 'sell' the rights to transport them (their original destinations long forgotten) to other capsuleers who have no business retaining ownership of them. As the Empire's preeminent independent loyalist capsuleer organization, it is PIE's solemn duty to re-secure these units of Kameiras, re-induct them to the Imperial fold and utilize them to the best effect for the good of Greater Amarria and her subjects. The re-securing phase of this task shall be accomplished by designating several Praetorians to cost-effectively purchase Kameiras found on the capsuleer markets either on contracts or the standard goods exchanges, request that capsuleers who have Kamieras in their possession to come forward and offer them to us as a donation or at a fair price, and by identifying capsuleer groups and individuals that inappropriately hold Kameiras for their own purposes and to negotiate for their release and/or pursue hostile action against them when appropriate and with the Admiralty's express approval.

// - Phase 2: Induction of Kameira Units into the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris

Due to several complications and legal barriers concerning the interaction of CONCORD regulations and Imperial law, it is often impossible for Kameiras that have been caught up in the capsuleer markets to return to active duty at their original postings. Because of this, said units will have to fall into Praetorian sovereignty as a capsuleer organization. New acquisitions must be medically and psychologically screened, inquisitioned for any potential heresies that may have arisen during their time away from the Empire, and then educated on the nature of their current legal status and a future within PIE. Should the Kameiras decline recruitment by PIE, as decided by their commanding officers, they shall be allowed to pursue whatever endeavor they wish so long as it does not indirectly or directly conflict with the Empire's interests. Should they accept, the Praetorian Oath shall be administered and they will fall under the normal rules associated with baseliner staff of PIE with special provisions that accommodate for the unique nature of Kameira fighting units.

// - Phase 3: Deployment of Kameira Units to the CEMWPA Warzone

PIE's primary concern as an organization for the past five years has been participating in the 24th Imperial Crusade. As this theatre of war is subject to intense fighting both in space and, more recently, upon the planets and installations within each system, there have been many egregious examples of civilian collateral damage and even direct assaults upon Imperial populaces by unscrupulous TLF commanders and the clone soldiers they employ. This is a state of affairs that cannot be allowed to stand, and with the induction of Kameira units into PIE comes the opportunity for the alliance to put these fighting men and women to a most righteous and noble task in protecting and aiding civilians caught in this most ignoble war. Kameiras are specialized forces that generally do not operate in massed battalions but instead act as support for larger, more standardized militaries. As such, PIE Kameiras will be deployed in small units across the breadth of the warzone exclusively where Imperial civilian populations are located. They will then be attached to the already present baseliner elements of the Imperial Guard, Imperial Navy, Holder-held militaries, planetary defense forces, and, if necessary, civilian police forces and militias, that have already been tasked with the protection of Amarrian civilians. The Kameiras will act as force multipliers and trainers to these armed groups which are often under-manned and out-gunned by their attackers. When no active threat from enemy forces is present, the Kameira units will double as an aid organization, securing, transporting and distributing relief supplies to war-affected civilian populations that are suffering from the destruction and disruption of the normal infrastructure in the area.

Guess I should post here, before someone reports me to PIE for *Holding Kameira's against their will*

There's indeed Kameiras aboard the Arcology Project, but they are employed by high ranking Amarr. The majority of them are under employment of a renowned Amarr scientist noble who assists our research into the Oura M Syndrome.
The other Kameiras have been assigned as bodyguards for various high ranking Amarr aboard the Arcology Project, assuring their safety. Concerns of possible heresy should be none, as the Arcology Project houses an Amarr Preacher to satisfy their spiritual needs.

This program is being presented in its entirety to the population of Kameiras that have come under our jurisdiction after the attempted exploitation of unscrupulous agents. Those who wish will assisted with all means to take advantage of this offer. It is not our intention to comment or concern ourselves with how we may be perceived in this matter but only to offer to those in our care an opportunity that they may wish to take of their own accord. As a matter of accountability, we will report our activity here should any transfers be made.

Be it known that no payment nor material compensation will be accepted for any transfers made and any initial transfer shall be made in person by myself of a limited number of volunteer Kameiras until there is a confident verification of the legitimacy of this program.

DSTON thanks Captain Shutaq for the time and thought put into this program. Far too long have the noble Kameiras been shuttled off as transport guards to foreign interests in contradiction of their training and values. We shall watch this program with great interest.

The Disciples of Ston bid you peace

A lot of people seem to think that a Kameira bodyguard is a status symbol, and wind up employing them completely wrong.

While it's true that Kamerias pull PPD duty; the best practice is to have a complete CQB/RTT as QRF, equipped and geared for combat. Primary physical security of the HVP should by CPSs. If there is an imminent threat to the HVP, it can be advisable to deploy a CQB/RTT or a full FST company of Kamerias in battle dress overtly to discourage said threat.
Kameiras are tier one operators. Most assignments to PPD duty and security forces (for guarding sensitive locations and weapons, i.e., viral weaponry) are kept short, no more than two years. Following that, they are rotated back into the operational detachments.

A contingent of Kamerias is kept in Dar al-Barakah for the purpose of being deployed in a case of civil unrest, insurrection, or foreign incursion. However, recognizing the relatively low likelihood of such events and the potential for benefit to the Empire with these forces wielded by PIE, I would be willing to arrange to have ownership of these slaves transferred to PIE with the understanding that should the need for such warriors arise in my holdings PIE would make every effort to deploy them or an equivalent force to Dar al-Barakah for the duration of any unfortunate scenario.

I have over fifty thousand Kameiras, and if PIE is in need of them for an operation, I can see about lending some.

I use them for a wide range of tasks, and they are all effective and loyal men and women, so I would be loathe to give them up. I can, however, be persuaded to lend them if there is a need.

However, as they have not been severed from their normal duties, being serving their Holder, I do not see the need to permanently relinquish them.

So wait, you'll pay for us to give you Kameiras?

I am constantly coming into possession of these brainwashed brutes! (Although some of them are quite hot Blink )

I'd be happy to make a deal every time I get a large group of them if you're willing to work with a low-life such as me. They're good guards, though...

I am pleased to see that you are following up with actions to effectuate your words as to your respect to the rights of self-determination of your Kameiras population and hope to see reports of activity in this regard in the future.

Should PIE need any materiel or haulers to assist in their return, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kameiras are soldiers, not servants. They are good for one thing and one thing only: killing. They are good at killing people in wide range of techniques. There's spotting for artillery, long range sniping, medium range automatic fire, CQB, hand to hand; I'm sure you get the idea. They are not for bringing someone wine, peeling grapes, waving a fan, or any of that other bullshit that worthless Minmatar slaves should be used for.

One Brigade/Regiment consisting of five battalions of 700 soldiers each for an initial total of 3500 Kameiras will comprise the first volunteer group to take advantage of this program. This information has been given to Captain Shutaq and we await final preparations and designation of time and location of the first transfer. I will personally handle the transport and transfer documents for this first group. When final arrangements have been made and the transfer documents executed, we will report here.

The Disciples of Ston bid you peace

I do not recall saying that they waved fans or did the work of servants. Anyone who is familiar with who I am knows they are used as military personnel and treated in the highest martial regard.

I do not find it appropriate to discuss my business in public. Nor is your tone, Kameira. If you wish to make your point, you would do well to remember your place. Your disrespecting a holder, especially on the IGS, does not seem to be in the traditions of PIE, unless they have stooped to coarse words and ignorant hostility regarding unfounded assumptions, as well as directly insulting my charges, which in turn is a direct insult to myself. If so I shall be greatly surprised.

However, I highly doubt that is the case. I shall assume this will not happen again, and will grant grace.

My offer to PIE still stands if they require reinforcements.

You are the one that brought your business into the public eye, I responded in kind. I don't know how you employ your Kameiras, or anything about you, Mr. Viceroy. No disrespect was intended. I simply saw an opportunity to shine a bit of light on an issue, as I've seen quite a number of people that think Kameiras are a status symbol and use them as ornaments.
