the V-Battalion

This is a place holder page. The actual V-Battalion material has yet to be generated by myself; it's not an immediate priority (so much as simply updating all the characters involved comes first). Until I manage that, I'll simply be adding people to the roster here as I update them.

Until I can expand on things more though, here's those I've prepared so far:
