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. . 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 
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. 
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.. 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.
