Charon Corps was a military unit part of the Wardenclyffe Section tasked with investigating the world known as Dite, accessible through wormhole. They were supported by an Artificial Intelligence designated Virgil AT-9.
Their logo consisted of a circle with a banner with the group's name on top, and inside the circle was a cloaked figure carrying a scythe and standing on a boat with the moon overhead, resembling the titular figure in Greek mythology.
While investigating the reality of Dite and Kuban Energy, the group was wiped out. Due to the ceased contact with them, the Wardenclyffe Section sent a soldier known as the Captain, a former member of Militaires Sans Frontières to investigate their disappearance. The Captain and a former XOF member known as Reeve encountered some of their abandoned bases and outposts trying to recover motherboards to find a way to escape the dimension via a Wormhole Digger.
