The KTS is divided into 50 separate sub-groups, each of these is known as a Division.


HistoryEdit

When the game started, positions were given out among the players. When attacks became planned, certain teams were formed to infiltrate what later became known as the BC. These teams were headed by someone in charge, and as the game became more advanced, proxy-leaders were formed. The term proxy-leader became the official name when the rule book was finalized in 1953.


SystemEdit

Each Division has an average of sixteen members, the smallest being Division Twenty-Seven with only three members and the largest being Division Forty-Five with thirty-three members. Every Division consists of a Head, a Proxy-Leader, and then the remaining members. During the KTS Initiation Ceremony, all the new agents are placed in a Division designated by need of the Division and the merit/specialties of the new agent. Once Head retires, the Proxy-Leader is next in line for the position of Head. There is only one case of the Proxy-Leader continuing on with a new Head instead of stepping into a position. The Divisions are spread out all over the world, Divisions Eleven through Forty-Nine often utilize the help of whichever of the Ten Divisions they are closest to.

Initiation CeremonyEdit

Once a year, after Division Forty-Five has recruited possible agents and Division Forty-Three has trained them at Stowde, the agents accepted into the KTS are initiated during a ceremony held at the New Mexico Base. The new agents sit on the stage in the auditorium while the audience is filled with older KTS agents. Every agent is required to attend the ceremony.

The whole process lasts no longer than a hour, as the President (whose presence is required) makes a speech, followed by a speech from the Head of Division Forty-Five , and then the announcements of the placement of each new agent. Starting at Division Fifty, the Head of Division Forty-Five reads down the list of Divisions announcing the new members of each. Once a name is called, he/she will go greet the President and then accept his/her Life Support before finding his/her new team.

The Ten DivisionsEdit

Main article: The Ten Divisions

The Ten Divisions refers to Divisions One through Ten which are known as the best Divisions for field work and mission excecution. Each Division is placed equal distance apart around the world. Apart from Division One, which is known as the best overall Division, and the Ten, there is no ranking order to the Divisions.

PlacementEdit

Each Division, or sets of Divisions specialize in one skill. Knowing this, in a annual three-day long meeting, Divisions Forty-Three and Forty-Five place the new recruits in Divisions based off the skills expressed at Stowde and the need for members concerning individual Divisions. Heads may request members as well.

The President reviews the placing and the new recruits, and if the President chooses, he/she may pick individual members for Division Fifty (the President's Division), although this is unusual as the President often picks new members from already initiated KTS agents. The President then signs off on the choices and they are then finalized within a week of the Initiation Ceremony.


No Division can refuse a member if one is given to them, apart from Division One. Division One recruits are not fully initiated into the Division (though they are initiated into the KTS) for a varied amount of time. Although the recruit lives with this Division, he/she is in a probational period until the Head of Division One chooses to add him/her as a full-fledged member or to send him/her to a different Division. Requests to change Divisions are allowed but not common. A committee will review the request and either accept or deny it. Division One is capable of sending probation members to another Division without permission from the President.

Changing DivisionsEdit

Requests to change Divisions are allowed but not common. A committee will review the request and either accept or deny it. Division One is capable of sending probation members to another Division without permission from the President. The President is also capable of taking members from any Division and transfering them to Division Fifty. When being transfered to Division Fifty, permission is not needed by the tranferee. If the President chooses, he/she may also transfer individuals without permission from Heads and/or the transferee. The Head is in charge of the Division. This entails being the liaison between the president, other Divisions, and his/her team. A Head has been, for the most part, the Proxy-Leader of the team before ascending to Head. Because of this, the Head tends to be the oldest member of the Division and the Proxy-Leader the second eldest, though this is not always the case.

PositionsEdit

HeadEdit

A Head is in charge of running a Division. Rules, provisions, safety, and directions are to be taken by the Head. Acting much as a parent to the members of the Divisions, the Head is in charge of all aspects within a headquarters but not within the KTS. The Head is also in charge of assigning jobs and choosing a Proxy-Leader. A Proxy-Leader is assigned by the Head of a Division. Acting as a second-in-command and vice-Head are the sole responsibilites of a Proxy-Leader. It is unusual for Proxy-Leader to be the eldest in a Division, as he/she tends to be younger than the Head. And as the position holds so much power, the assignment is usually given to one of the older members of the Division. It is commonplace for the Proxy-Leader to become Head of a Division once the current Head is gone.

Proxy-Leaders don't often accompany their Heads to meetings, but have been known to accompany them to banquets.

Every Division has a room filled with portraits of past Heads.
