- “Ah, a Riskbreaker... A royal guard dog!”
- —Sydney Losstarot
Riskbreakers or the Dangerous Criminal Task Force is the most danger-ridden post in the Valendia Knights of the Peace, tasked to clamp down on serious crimes that threaten to undermine the security of all of society, various criminal organizations and perpetrators boasting significant influence for social upheaval, or major incidents involving state secrets.
Selected from the need of above average fighting ability, and the need for extra quick and precise judgment skills under high stress and pressure situations, Riskbreakers are always powerful fighters and are typically strong enough to work alone on missions, but come to gain their name from facing the immutable low ratio chance of survival at less than 30% and insurmountable odds that come with every mission they are tasked to fulfill. Because of their highly dangerous assignments and work, they have the so-called "license to kill" criminals when circumstances demand, and are taught in a variety of survival skills, including the self maintenance of equipment and armaments.
Though they are supposed to be guardians of the people, years of corruption has degraded them to mere strong-arms who use violence and killers of the government. As a result of the demand for the need for Riskbreakers to be detached from their humanity and individuality, yet still retain morale and spirit, all to continue fighting in the name of patriotism, it is not uncommon for Riskbreakers to have a short career, either dying in the line of duty, or losing their nerve amongst the atrocities one had to commit and retiring altogether. Very few individuals, like Ashley, however, still manage to continue this line of work.
