The US Paragon programme is a highly secret application of Rift-tech science that looks to enhance human genetics and biology at a molecular level. Results have been highly variable but the success rate is considered worthy of continuing the programme. Whilst few candidates have responded as well as the famous Captain Samuels, several of the Paragons display abilities almost as strong.
With much media hype and sensationalism, the US unveiled the Paragon Trooper in response to the German super-soldier programme. With a mission to hunt the Nachtjäger, the troopers restored much-needed morale, even if their achievements are less significant than the press would have the public believe.
