And all the sinners saints

Task Force Eidolon is a clandestine military organization within the Comintern hiding under the guise of an Counterintelligence & Special Detective Task Force. Created by Stalinist hardliners within the Soviet government & people who are just dissatisfied with the Comintern's rather free spirited leadership, Eidolon seeks to overthrow the current Comintern leadership, eliminate loose cannons like the Generation and the Revolutionary Vanguard & create a pan-Comintern superbloc. These goals, however, are only just in service of Eidolon's greater mission of conquering the Alliance once & for all and unite mankind under an all-powerful Stalinist one world order and build their twisted vision of a worker's paradise.

To compensate for their rather meager influence over Comintern military research, the leaders of Eidolon have resurrected several long-abandoned military research programs that they believe can help give them the edge over their foes despite their rather small amount of R&D personnel.
Herpienization refers to the Task Force's process of merging Human DNA with that of a Reptile in order to create highly specialized hybrids dubbed "Reptili-men" for use as elite combat personnel. The Herpienization process itself involves isolating specific genes in Human & Reptile DNA and then mixing them with a highly radioactive substance known as Jade that Eidolon is able to acquire through secret dealing with several rogue Capitalist Chinese warlords.

Behind the Scenes
- Eidolon can best be described as a more active OAS mixed with Operation Valkyrie, ODESSA, the Hellsing Organization & Millenium. While they lack the heavy infantry armor and "Uber Vehicles/Aircraft/Watercraft" of Task Force Omega, Eidolon more than makes up for it with its own powerful units whose skills in irregular warfare can outwit any opponent.
