Deathworlders Wiki

The code names used (mainly by the military) throughout the series, fall into two broad categories, namely Operations and Intel(sources). They are always written in FULL CAPS, just like call signs. Please note that while a person could have both a code name and a call sign, they are not the same thing. Code names are used when talking about a person, for compartmentalization reasons, while call signs are used to address a person. If the code name you're looking for does not appear in this list, consider checking Call signs or Abbreviations.


A short overview of the operation is given, as a refresher. For more detail, refer to its proper page.
