ISC-1 (Headquarters) Coffee Boy
Description: While Headquarters is mostly made up of analysts and radio technicians, some of the information obtained is too sensitive to risk being intercepted in retransmission and must be sent physically, which is where the Coffee Boys come in. Considered the best couriers in Imperial, Coffee Boys are officially considered agents of Headquarters, but are often found on loan to pretty much every department in ISC. Most Coffee Boys come from a destitute background, usually being street urchins and orphans, who are promised to be given the job if they can pass a grueling screening and training process. They are named Coffee Boys due to the free coffee vouchers they receive for the rest of their life, but most of their efficiency really comes from all the high-grade stimulant drugs they are given and personally buy. Even though they are trained to resist addiction and overcome overdoses and comedown effects, most retired Coffee Boys exit their career as drug ridden messes and due to the addictions most end up developing anyways and the reduced cost of all Imperial sold stimulants for active operatives, very few willingly retire.
