Bishop was to some extent effective in efforts in quelling the rebellion and managed to create the Amber Army, a large portion of the Iron Star Company's ships corrupted and made to fight for VEGA Security.
Ultimately, he was unsuccessful in fighting the uprising as more technologies were stolen, and the numbers of the rebellion grew. He increasingly became irrational and deranged before he was forced to retreat in the wake of a new faction, stepping in to crush the Miner Rebellion and Iron Star Company.
History[edit | edit source]
Bishop appears to be a VEGA Security chief working for the VEGA Federation. He has been placed in charge of VEGA Security, seemingly, and was responsible for leading VSEC fleets in events/operations: Countermeasures, Reclamation, Emergence, Revenge, all riots, and all VSEC patrols.
He is the primary antagonist after Bertram's downfall and the creation of VEGA Security to address the rebel threat. He, like most top VEGA officials or officers, cares little for the rebels and dismisses them as weak and useless. In Revenge event, Bishop claims to have captured Larus, and that the Iron Star Company failed their raids and had their leader killed in the process. That information was completely false, though, as Keres VII made first contact with the rebels after the event, and Larus' market remained open and completely unaffected.
Another thing to note is that the VEGA Security portrait seen when battling VSec fleets appears to be of his head.
He makes a return in Vector, now in charge of the Umbra. He calls to the rebels to rebel against the Altairians, asking that they join his volunteer militia, with all crimes forgiven in the process. The rebels refuse to sell out their alliance with the Altairians, and their ships clash with his for the first in a very long time.
In Pestilence, it is revealed that he has turned the VEGA Processing Complexes into a form of prison camp, for those who have willingly "surrendered" and joined his cause.
In Catalyst, He was at Umbra HQ when Keres attacked in a suicidal attempt to assassinate him. He was able to escape at the last moment because of the chaos that unfolded when strange machines appeared, allowing him to cover his escape.
In Duplicity, Bishop attempted to open up negotiations with the Pharmakon Governance A.I., as he believed that both sides could mutually benefit the other.
In Vestige, he reminds Victoria Onin of the arrangement her father made with him, threatening to expose her history to the Miner Rebellion should she fail to do so. He also calls out to the Rebels and Altairians for help, offering the blueprints of the Gargoyle Carrier in exchange for Blood Amber Shards.
He then holds a conference in Collusion, hoping to find a solution to drive away the Pharmakon once and for all. He proposes reconstructing the hypergate to lure the Pharmakon away so that they can be easily dealt with without harming innocents in the VEGA sector.
This is further revealed in Synchrony, where he has soldiers attempting to drive away the invaders.
During Collateral, He was also revealed to have captured Victoria Onin, and had sent his ship on a collision course with Umbra HQ. Chiron thus deploys the Valrayvns in response. However, both of their attempts were undermined by the Rebels, who delayed the Valrayvns long enough for Keres to board his ship and apprehend him.
Much later, he was executed by Ny'tah, who sentenced him to death in space by jettisoning him out the airlock.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Bishop's appearance is never shown since he is wearing full body armor. He has red/orange eyes. During his operation, he took his role seriously and professionally, he is often calm and cool tempered, detaining rebel miners and such.
However, as his efforts became increasingly futile, he began to become impatient and made tactical errors because of his aggressive haste. Towards the end of his termination, he had become insane and rambled about a prophecy involving Blood Amber and the doom of the Miner Rebellion in delirium.
He returns in Vector having succumbed to the Alien infection, What remains of his humanity behind his armor is now replaced by a skeletal like appearance similar to General Geir. Blood Amber crystals can also be seen protruding out of his neck as well as torso.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Bishop is holding a weapon highly similar to the Kriss Vector K-10 in his portrait, a US manufactured sub-machine gun.
