HistoryEdit

Founded in 1996 by a group of disenfranchised soldiers from the recently disbanded Canadian Airborne Regiment, Grizzly Security (As it was founded as) was built upon the idea of providing an experienced security element to UN Missions and high-profile VIPs. Finding the world of personal security a lucrative business, the original group was quickly built upon by their friends and contacts from the world over. Inevitably this led to a more diverse personnel pool and a name change to reflect that. In a move to soften the image of the mercenaries, the company adopted the title of 'Commonwealth Cooperative' to appeal to more aid agencies and provide a friendlier face for the UN. The company's first big break arrived in the form of UNMIK's establishment and the onslaught of aid groups that brought into the Balkans. Creating a rapport amongst various humanitarian workers, the Company soon found itself gaining contracts across Africa as well as the war-torn former Yugoslavia.

An even bigger break came during the onset of the War on Terror, as the need for private military contractors exploded. Operating primarily in Afghanistan, the Commonwealth provided security and counterinsurgency details for years. During this time, their ranks were swelled by veterans of the conflict looking for work after their period of service had expired. This trend carried on for several years as various 'cells' operated in different theatres around the world. Most recently, the Commonwealth Cooperative was bought out by Bullseye Corps who intend to integrate the pool of personnel the Commonwealth employ into their own networks and operations.
