** Fits Valkyria even better, given how the ATTs are almost the perfect counter to the Articial Valkyria developed in VC2: armed with a gun capable of destroying both the APCs that power the Artifical Valkyria and penetrating their armour afterwards and while in a straight fight they'd get lasered to death, they can move around a lot more easily in difficult-for-power-armour-and-APC terrain. Add in the whole blue lantern to Ragnite potential parallels and you have a group seemingly custom-created as an urban or guerilla warfare counter to the recently developed Art Valk program.

[[WMG: the series is a series of propaganda created by the empire in the wake of a civil war]]
After the Great War devastated the rural areas the aristocracy in those areas along with power hunger members of the military joined together to over throw the corrupt Nobel families, the war cases devastation to the rest of the country and left the economy week but the government consintraited in the hand of a few families.

The series itself was created as an explanation as to why the war broke out, section three is in fact large and powerful section that works as an internal affaires unit for the army and aristocracy, but prior to the civil war they were viewed as a propaganda unit going after small Nobels well the big ones stayed in the capital are getting fat.

The charters are real people serving in the elite unit of section 3
Orledo is their best intelligence officer do to his black market contraction
Malvin is one that studies the books and was recutied from the elite unit
Hunks is a long serving intellect officer
The sgt. Major is not as air head as presented just included in the propaganda as comidic relief
Alice the noble that is viewed as the sorta public face of the unit.

After the civil war they need to create heroes that were fighting the silver circle before the war and not that the war came up from nowhere

* After alot of looking, this troper concludes that the world of Pumpkin Scissors could be crossed with AvatarTheLastAirbender and Randal is actually Teo. After the Kauplan institute found out about the crossing of universes, they somehow found Teo after the defeat of Ozai but before the war in the Pumpkin Scissors universe. They saw the boy and his spirit and thought he would make a good soldier. They take him, erase his memory, experiment on him, manage to get him to walk, get him the lantern, do this that and another thing and BANG! Teo has now become Randal Oland. Only, instead of being the Airbender spirited Teo that everyone knows and loves, he is now... well, Randal.

* Random distribution of advanced technologies and experiments run rampant over the Empire? Mysterious benefactors just giving out tech that could have won the war for either side? Someone's experimenting, only with the whole Empire as their lab.
