The Champions of the Rapture are an extremist group that believe the virus was a gift from the universe to thin the herd and root out the weak. Led by Rick, the Champions of the Rapture are building a stronger generation comprised only of those that survived the outbreak. They believe that those that survived were meant to pioneer a new society where the strong thrive and the weak are eliminated. Upon hearing that Sky Medix had created a usable vaccine, the Champions of the Rapture attacked the Sky Medix offices and destroyed all of their research. They are strongly militarized and have control over a vast network of information and secrets. Most members of the Champions of the Rapture reside in the Solar Camp, hiding in plain sight among the other solar camp inhabitants.
