The sublevel guard were a team of soldiers that patrolled the sublevels of Pelvanida. They were an unusual lot and the other personnel tended to avoid them and so their unit was shoruded in mystery. Their commander was Atticus Ædelwulf.
The sublevel guard originally sided with the terrorists and captured Rudyard Shelton so that he would give them access to auxiliary control. After the terrorists with them were killed, they switched sides and allied with James' team. They provided the numerical forces needed to assault the hangar in the final shootout. (Darwin's Soldiers)
