Task Force 29 or TF29 is an anti-terrorist intelligence and response team funded by Interpol. Its goal is to tackle the rise in terrorism following the Aug Incident. To deal with these threats as effectively as possible, TF29 has global jurisdiction without being impeded by bureaucracy.[1] The task force is headquartered in Lyon[2], and has local divisions operating in various places around the world.

Each branch is headed by a director who use the Neural SubNet to communicate and plan with each other. Jim Miller is the current director overseeing the Prague branch of TF29.

BackgroundEdit

In 2027, shortly after the Aug Incident, black market sales of weapons and augmentations, acquired by both sides of the augmentation debate, reach unprecedented heights. At the same time, local intelligence agencies fail to stop a series of high-profile attacks around the globe, by both the augmented and the "naturals". Blaming the failures on a lack of international intelligence-sharing, the U.N. pleads for the formation of an integrated anti-terrorist intelligence and response team overseen by Interpol.[1] The result is the establishment of Task Force 29 in 2028.[3] Its name references the 29 member founding member-nations.[4] Joseph Manderley is appointed to run the Task Force.

Due to the sensitive and highly confidential nature of its affairs, TF29 operate under a strict code of professional secrecy. Its operations are generally not known to the public.[4]

Divisions Edit

TF29 maintain units around the world, including the following:

  • A division based in the TF29 main headquarters in Lyon, France.
  • The North American Division, which consists of several sub-units, including the Alpha, Bravo, and Delta teams. The Alpha team is based in Los Angeles, United States.[2]
  • The Central European Division, based in Prague.
  • A division based in Oman.

Activities Edit

North American Division Edit

In 2029, the Alpha team of the North American division of TF29 is in Detroit to intercept the arms dealer Sheppard's illegal trafficking of military-grade augmentations. With the help of Adam Jensen, who had recently fallen into the custody of TF29, they prevent Sheppard from air lifting the augmentations out of Detroit, although Sheppard himself escapes. The local TF29 commander, Christian Jarreau, asks Jensen to consider joining TF29. Later, TF29 attempts to ship the augmentations by train to a military base for disposal, but are attacked by augmented operatives sent by the Illuminati to retrieve the augmentations. The TF29 operatives on the train are killed, but Jensen causes the train to derail and crash, destroying the augmentations in the process. Afterwards, Jensen warms up to the idea of joining TF29.[5]

While the Alpha team was attempting to capture Sheppard, the Bravo and Delta teams of the North American Division were respectively investigating a Triad Harvester ring working out of Vancouver and a rogue militia group in the New Mexico badlands.[5]

As a member of the North American Division, Jensen is tasked with making contact with Hector Guerrero, an agent deep undercover inside the Pent House who had gone dark.

Central European Division Edit

In late 2029, TF29 is still trying to capture Sheppard. The Lyon headquarters receive a tip from an undercover agent that the Sheppard will be in Dubai for an arms deal with a terrorist group. Despite the fact that the Oman Division is significantly closer to Dubai, director Manderley orders Jim Miller to send his Central European Division in Prague.[6] In Dubai, the Prague team ends up getting ambushed by gold-masked mercenaries but are able to prevent the mercenaries from escaping. One TF29 member believes that they were sent to Dubai intentionally to witness this ambush.[7]

TF29 suspects the Augmented Rights Coalition of being behind multiple terrorist attacks, including the bombing of Růžička Station. For this reason, it wishes to bring ARC's leader, Talos Rucker, in for questioning. The Task Force sends Adam Jensen to ARC headquarters inside Golem City to extract Rucker. However, once Jensen arrives at Rucker's office, he explains that ARC is being framed for terrorist attacks and that the framers are in "plain sight" before dying from an unnatural cause.

When Jensen gets back to Prague, he learns from a stored NSN conversation that the head director, Manderley, is an Illuminati conspirator and is behind Rucker's death. Furthermore, the Illuminati are trying to pin a series of terrorist attacks on ARC, including a fake attack on VersaLife.

Once TF29 realizes that Nathaniel Brown is the target for another terrorist attack (with only Jensen knowing it was orchestrated by the Illuminati) Miller and his team make their way to London to prevent it.

Trivia Edit

  • The Central European Division based in Prague currently has 87 agents in the area.[8]
