As the name implies, this is an unit within the Striders under Matic's direct control. Whether the unit existed before he took charge of the group or Matic himself created it afterwards is unknown. All Striders on the unit are completely loyal to him, even following him in his betrayal.
Due to his alliance with Enterprise, and since he realized that their soldiers and hired mercenaries weren't enough to confront Hiryu, Matic offered his unit's services in order to protect the ZAIN Project's Main Tree and its child terminals from him. He also issued them with orders to stop and eliminate Hiryu.
During the confrontation, Hiryu has fought and killed any member who crossed his path. It's assumed any surviving member has either died or renounced Matic by the end of the conflict.
