"Humanity First."
The slogan of Cerberus

Cerberus is a human paramilitary organization of species-ists who all hold prejudice against extra-terrestrials, Pokemon, beastfolk, artificial intelligences, and Mer. Cerberus' chief belief is that humanity is superior to all other forms of life, and that humanity must work towards ascension to reach that level of superiority. This dogma entails pushing for laws that favor humanity, and also committing genocides on non-human races.

Surprisingly, Cerberus is very well funded by thousands of wealthy human corporations all across human territory. Originally, Cerberus was a splinter group of the UNSC, founded by an ambitious radical known as the Illusive Man, but not much is known about him. The group was later passed to a military leader known as Miles Quaritch. During his leadership, Cerberus fought alongside the Andromeda Treaty and aided in the UNSC's destruction. After that, the organization was passed to a man named Handsome Jack.  Under his leadership, Cerberus maintained an uneasy alliance with the UNSC against the invading Faceless. Still, Cerberus was responsible for numerous sabotages, attempts to destroy the "non-visionary" humans.

As of the late 22nd century, Handsome Jack remains the Chairman of Cerberus, and all global divisions of the organization have rallied together following the devastating losses suffered by the United States division during the Great Devastation.



Cerberus' armed forces are made up of multiple classes and specializations, for example - Engineers, Soldiers, and Guardians.


During the Great Peace from 2164-2182, Cerberus began outfitting their combat units with Mark 2 variety battle harnesses. This gave rise to new Cerberus units. From left to right; the Footman, Centurion, Heavy Assault, Nemesis, and Phantom.
