Type: Non-player Character

The Orochi Group is an NPC faction made up of several sister corporations. Their intentions are unclear but their actions suggest that they want power and are indifferent to the cost involved.

First Appearance

Background

Orochi Corporate Uniform

The Orochi Group was founded in 1949[1], shortly after World War II, with headquarters in Tokyo.[2]

The name "Orochi" comes from the name of an 8-headed Japanese dragon known as Yamata no Orochi because the Orochi Group is made up of 8 subsidiaries. [3]. Their corporate logo is a squared off spiral comprised of 8 lines, representing the 8 subsidiary companies or the 8 heads of Yamat no Orochi, followed by the Kanji symbol for Snake - 蛇 [4]

A few years after conception, Orochi's eight subdivisions took to the global market. Today the enormous conglomerate hosts award ceremonies, donates billions to charities, and encourages youth programs. [5]

In August of 2010 there was a terrorist attack near the Tokyo headquarters of the Orochi Group, causing widespread destruction in the commercial district of Tokyo.[6]. In the Ground Zero mission, characters relive a flashback that occurs shortly after the attack, showing that it was actually some sort of occult phenomenon related to filth-infected humans and other creatures.

Locations

Solomon Island

Kingsmouth

The Savage Coast

Blue Mountain

Valley of the Sun God

Scorched Desert

  • The Plethron Interm Office is located in the town of al-Merayah, and was the regional headquarters for the Plethron subsidiary's work on a project known as "The Prometheus Initiative"
  • The Orochi Retreat in the Scorched Desert is where the remaining Orochi Group soldiers are making a last stand against their comrades that have become infected with the The Filth
  • The Orochi Depot is where those soldiers were originally stationed, along with various scientists and officers. It appears that they were again conducting experiments with The Filth along with recovering and examining artifacts from The Ankh and surrounding areas. It has now been completely overrun by filth and creatures infected by the filth.
  • The Orochi Research Base located in the Scorched Desert is situated upon a plateau overlooking The Ankh
  • The Ankh, a former temple of Aten and recent Orochi research site, player-explorable as a 5-player dungeon and also a solo mission instance. The Filth research conducted there under Orochi's Dr. Klein has gone horribly awry.

City of the Sun God

  • The Orochi have also penetrated the City of the Sun God and set up an Orochi Camp there as well. They were primarily supposed to be retrieving artifacts and sending them somewhere else for examination. But, they apparently took a little too much initiative and unearthed or started something they shouldn't have. [citation needed]

Transylvania

Shadowy Forest

The Orochi have set up numerous outposts in the The Shadowy Forest portion of Transylvania. 5 to be exact. This time they were researching various supernatural creatures that could be found native to that area [8]. The outposts are:

Carpathian Fangs

  • Orochi Outpost
  • There is an Orochi Coms Center located on top of one of the nearby mountains. It is heavily guarded and contains the controls to override access to The Nursery
  • An Orochi outpost near the power station is now overrun with mountain trolls.
  • The Smiths' Cabin is a research coordination site, now deserted.
  • The Breach is an Orochi-reopened Gateway to the Outer Dark containing a Gaia Engine.
  • The Nursery - A top-secret Orochi research center. It was dedicated to researching the effects of filth on children. Especially children who already possessed various supernatural talents.

Kaidan

Player Hubs

London

  • Váli had a research facility in London which they are using to find potential candidates for further testing at The Nursery [9]. See the Váli article for more details
