The uncanny yet resourceful Hacker hacks into the Internet to bring in a steady flow of income to support People's Republic of China's war machine. They can hack faster when garrisoned inside an Internet Center or Listening Outpost.

Lore

I can cripple their facilities.
- Hacker

In China, a man has to do everything in order to live; even taking advantage of other people. When China was introduced to the internet during the 20th Century, lots and lots of China's denizens were entranced to it; many by the amount of information they could get from it, and some by the amount of money they could get from it.

Smart and cunning, Hackers have an uncanny ability to seek what they think is most important to them; money. Of course, the People's Liberation Army did not ignore these men; after all, money is what makes the world go around, even in this part of the world. The PLA employed these young, politically semi-reliable and outstanding men to help them fund the Chinese war machine through any "acceptable" means necessary.
