The Biological Warfare and Containment Command (BIOCOM), also referred to commonly as B-Wac is a special operations and black operations division of the Allied States Department of Defense. Officially not part of the military and its Unified Combatant Commands, B-Wac reports directly to the Secretary of Defense, James R. Eden. The B-Wac was secretly created along with the organization of the Department of Defense in mid-2007, to protect the Allied States domestically against biological threats. The division is usually given carte blanche in their duties. Their official mission statement is to "detect, conceal and prevent of outbreaks of unknown viruses, pathogens, or diseases, both modified and natural, on Alliance soil." When deployed, B-Wac usually operates under the guise of a normal military unit, and always enjoys precedence over normal military or law enforcement. The Clark-Kentz Corporation is the only private entity involved with B-Wac, and usually makes its experts available to the division.
The Biological Warfare and Containment Command is led by Commander Peter McMullen, who was appointed directly by the Secretary of Defense. B-Wac has little to no legislative oversight, however, the Department of Defense's Inspector General's Office does frequent its accounts and look into reports concerning B-Wac. Under McMullen, each formation has its own leader, usually holding the rank of lieutenant.
