Swarm Combat Medic

To watch the heroes

The Swarm is a tactical unit. When you fight as a flight, or a lone element, you can keep track of whether everyone's okay. In a swarm, the combat medic takes care of that.
— Combat Medic Alanna
  The Swarm Combat Medic is the second in command of the 100-bird swarm, subordinate only to the Swarm Leader. Generally the spouse of the Swarm Leader, the Combat Medic has direct command over all escorts serving in its swarm, and is a member of the swarm's Command Element.


There are several ways to become a Combat Medic. I warn you that none of them are easy.
— Combat Medic Alanna, addressing recruits
  There are several levels of Combat Medic. All combat medics are first brought to a centralized school in Port Nora, at level CM-0. The medics then undergo a yearlong training, and either fail or graduate at the first level. After the combat medic is trained, they are shipped to a unit. Alternative methods of qualification may include direct examination, demonstration of medical merit on the battlefield, or entrance from a civilian medical school.   Combat medics with battlefield experience are promoted to CM-2s. Combat medics with frontline experience are promoted to CM-3s. Decorated combat medics are promoted to CM-4s. If a swarm's wing needs a Wing Medical Commander, the wing chooses from CM-4s.
