The DUP or The Department of Unified Protection is a government department set on killing all Conduits so that the disasters that happened in Empire City and New Marais don't repeat themselves. They have established a strong foothold throughout the US, with multiple Conduit-detecting checkpoints throughout most major cities and roads. They created the term 'Bio-Terrorist' to negatively impact the public view of Conduits, and claim to protect from the very menaces some of them are.
The DUP is lead by Zander Smythe who takes revenge on the Conduits for "contaminating" the world, he and 9 other people are all trying to rid all conduits or as they call them "Bio-Terrorists" of this world.
Foot Soliders- A foot soldier is an unenhanced DUP trooper, often seen weilding assault rifles or sniper rifles. Clad in bulletproof armor, they are difficult to kill by conventional means.
Knights- A Knight is an enhanced DUP trooper, able to manipulate and weaponize concrete. They can be seen using a variety of weapons, ranging from concrete swords to rocket launchers, and their ability to create shields and armor make them difficult prey even for powerful Conduits.
