'''Griffin & Kryuger''' (Russian: Грифон & Крюгер, tr. ''Grifon & Kryuger''), previously mistranslated as Griffin & Kruger, is a private military contractor and security consultant company, led by Berezovich Kryuger. In the story of Girls' Frontline, the player acts as a commander of G&K.

Prior to the Butterfly Incident, Griffin was mainly involved in paramilitary affairs, such as law enforcement, as well as providing security consultation. Following Butterfly, as a result of the actions of the [[Sangvis Ferri]] born from the incident, G&K began increasingly involving itself in fending off and suppressing any potential Sangvis incursions into neighboring sectors (and potentially threaten civilian lives), at the behest of the New Soviet Union's [[KCCO]].

Following the official end of the Third World War in 2051, the recovering governments of Europe faced civil unrest born out of the weakened de facto control of their states. In this environment, various PMCs, born out of the war, took up peacekeeping contracts issued by these governments, as to maintain civil stability. Berezovich Kryuger himself was a veteran of the Third World War, and the lessons and experiences learned would influence the direction and ethos of Griffin and Kryuger.

Griffin itself would be formed in 2053, following Berezovich Kryuger's departure from the New Soviet Union's Ministry of Internal Affairs. Having successfully commanded the rescue and escort operation involving former [[90wish]] member [[Persica|Persicaria]] during his time at the Ministry, he used the payment he received to start the PMC. IOP's relationship with G&K was established early on, Kryuger having maintained a good personal relationship with its CEO, [[Harvey Welkin|Havier Witkin]]. Kryuger would be very keen on using dolls due to civilian-sector [[T-Doll|Tactical Dolls]] being much cheaper than human mercenaries, and to minimize human casualties as much as he could.

Griffin and Kryuger.png

Griffin and Kryuger Private Military Company and Security Consultant Company (克鲁格和格里芬军事承包与安全顾问服务公司)[1] or Грифон & Крюгер (Grifon & Kryuger) in Russian,[2][3] usually called Griffin (格里芬) or G&K (“GK”),[4] is a paramilitary company founded in 2053 by former special forces soldier Berezovich Kryuger. Griffin's headquarter is located at the fictional location 279B Verkhovnoi Rady Boulevard in Endfyld (Эндфилд), Ploshad 4 (Площадь 4[5]),[3] with additional branches in Glasgow, Vladivostok, Konya and Dijiang (帝江).[6]

G&K is known for mostly employing IOP Tactical Dolls and has been an important sponsor of IOP and 16LAB, directly influencing several design decisions in their T-Dolls standards. By Kryuger's preferences, all Griffin T-Dolls are designated by the weapon they use in combat.[7] After the Butterfly Incident of 2061, G&K was put in charge of destroying the rampaging Sangvis Ferri T-Dolls in Sector 09. This is where the player takes the role of the Commander in Girls' Frontline.

History[edit]

Berezovich Kryuger was a former member of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and participated in the rescue and escort operation of scientist Persicaria as a tactical commander during World War Three. He left the Ministry after receiving payment for this mission and used the money to start G&K.[1] Kryuger had witnessed many deaths during his military career and wanted to dedicate its retirement to less destructive purposes and founded G&K in order to protect populations lacking government protection.[8] G&K's forces were human soldiers at first, but quickly shifted to using armed civilian Tactical Dolls to spare human lives[9] and money. G&K developed good relations with T-Dolls manufacturer IOP, Kryuger and IOP's director Havier Witkin maintained good personal relations[1] and Kryuger himself had an interest in the development of Second Generation T-Dolls.[9]

This close partnership let Kryuger provide direct data feedback about T-Dolls efficiency to IOP's main R&D subcontractor, Hermit (in reality a shell corporation used by IOP to protect its employees Persicaria and Lycoris from their former colleagues of 90WISH). G&K's collaboration was instrumental in further improving T-Dolls[1] and meant that IOP was willing to occasionally take back dolls from G&K to return them to the civilian market.[10] G&K was later hired by IOP's competitor Sangvis Ferri to escort Lycoris to their underground research facilities, after the scientist decided to leave Hermit. Kryuger accepted only if SF would share Lycoris' future results with him. G&K's influence as a partner prevented Witkin from seeking retribution against Lycoris.[1]

G&K officially began to take security contracts in 2055, quickly gaining reputation as a PMC. In 2060, G&K directly requested IOP to integrate Neural Cloud technology into their T-Dolls, becoming a standard. The same year, multiple G&K branches were attacked under unknown circumstances and several high-ranking human employees were killed, but not Kryuger himself. In 2062, one year after the Butterfly Incident where Lycoris was killed and Sangvis Ferri dolls turned against mankind, the weakened G&K took up the contract to keep Sangvis Ferri T-Dolls within Sector 09. Six months into the contract,[9] the PMC was in desperate need of extra personnel to face SF forces and urgently recruited a new batch of human commanders, among them the Commander.[9][10]

"Let's take out the trash."

This article may require cleanup, for the following reason(s): Add Girls' Frontline story.

G&K suffered a massive blow when the KCCO turned against them in 2063 and Director Kryuger was arrested under false charges. G&K nevertheless continued to operate under Helian's command, as per Kryuger's wishes.[11]

Tactical Commanders[edit]

Because of the particularity of G&K troops being T-Dolls, the main factor of recruitment for human commanders isn't professional training or experience, but being able to pass a psychological evaluation dedicated to measuring interpersonal compatibility with T-Dolls, and general traits of character like patience, courage and loyalty.[9] Human orders are necessary for a T-Doll to take action, so commanders are truly the brain of any G&K deployment, and a prime target for the enemy.[10]

The standard uniform of G&K commanders is a knee-long military coat with pouches, collar and cuffs, gold buttons, a red exterior and a black interior, a golden insignia on the right shoulder and a large black belt with side straps. A white shirt and black tie is worn under the coat, with black pants and shoes and a red beret with a bronze G&K insignia. High-ranking officers Helianthus and Berezovich Kryuger wear variations of this uniform.
