Royal Navy Flag

The Royal Navy is the principal naval warfare service branch of the British Armed Forces.


After mainland Europe fell to the Chimera in 1950, the Royal Navy was tasked with defending the United Kingdom should the Chimera make an amphibious attack or invasion on the British Isles. However, in March 1950 the Royal Navy was mysteriously attacked while patrolling the English Channel during the night. Distress calls reported huge freak waves overwhelming the fleet, despite it being an otherwise calm sea. By morning, all 96 ships were found washed up on the coast of France. Only seventeen bodies were found, all of which were dead by suicide, and every ship's bilges were filled with a unidentified substance that was subsequently classified.

It is still unknown whether the Chimera had the ability or technology that manipulated the waves that overwhelmed the fleet, or if some other unknown force took part in the attack, as it doesn't match the strategy or capability of any known aquatic Chimera strains.
