ORCA is a faction that operates with some assistance, secretly, from the higher ups of The League. Their goal is to carry out the Closed Plan, and save the planet from death. They have 12 main members, all of them Lynx (they also have a number of MT and Normal pilots, which can be seen in Hard Mode Attack Anti-Satellite Cannons, referred to as Neo Nidus' recruits, as well as several of their own custom Arms Forts, referred to as the 'Jet-Type'). The leaders of ORCA are Maximilian Thermidor and Malzel, who act in the interests of former Rayleonard, the original creators of the Closed Plan.

ORCA's Arms FortsEdit
Besides their NEXTs and Normal units, ORCA has also mass-produced a type of Arms Fort known as the Jet. These are land-based machines, with a teardrop shape and heavy armor except for a small exhaust port on the upper side. Besides utilizing similar technology to Stigro's "Laser Plow" for ground level defense, they are also capable of utilizing ranged lasers embedded throughout the structure.
They were produced in varying sizes, as several large units appear in the League Path mission "Destroy ORCA's Special AF Unit", while at least one smaller unit appears in the League Path mission "Defend Arteria Cranium" (Hard Mode).
- An "Orca" is another name for a Killer Whale. The colors of a Killer Whale's appearance are black and white which is the same colors used by ORCA's logo.
- Shinkai, Thermidor, Julius, and Neo Nidus have been confirmed to be the original or the Big Five, but for some odd reason there was no mention of who exactly was the 5th member. some highly beileved that it was Old King because 5th order Rank in the ORCA matches, then there's Malzel who had a much larger reputation in ORCA as Thermidors right hand man. The closing Cinematic that leads to Thermidor's proclamation of the Leagues sin has brought the big five to light as they make their declaration to purge the mistakes the companies have made, but instead of Old King underneath the ORCA banner it was Malzel. This clearly shows that Malzel is in fact one of the Big five and not Old King.
