- Share restricted records of recently apprehended magic users in the titan’s local area.
- Allow access for the purchase of restricted or military-level gear without needing to go through black market channels.
- Reveals the locations of suspected safe houses containing unregistered, but non-violent and low-priority, magic-users in the local area.
A Vanguard titan is an elite soldier trained to track and subdue or eliminate renegade magic users. Carefully selected and trained in hand-to-hand combat as well as marksmanship, even a single titan is a dangerous enemy.
Their greatest strength lies in their ability to work together, coordinating close-range combat prowess with ranged fire support.
