It is rumored that top Killjoys are recruited or taken into a special training program on Arkyn to become Level 6 Agents.[1] A few agents go missing each year and rumors say that they have been forced into the Level 6 program. When asked, the RAC claims that the agents have been transferred out of the Quad or died on active duty.[2]

In actuality, the RAC is constantly tracking its agents, looking for the right combination of traits for a Level 6 agent. The process is not efficient and most people die if they don't make it through the program. Candidates must be tough enough to take the physical transition and emotionally broken enough to survive the mental changes. The more emotionally damaged and antisocial a person is, the better a candidate they will be.[3] Agents that meet these requirements are subjected to the Red 17 process.[4]

The Red 17 process is not effective on young individuals. Because their prefrontal cortexes are still growing, they are unable to take the mental transition when the plasma invades.[5]


Level 6 Agents are sociopathic and focused on their mission, unencumbered by emotion or compassion. They do not feel pain, have increased strength, agility and dexterity, and can heal from any wound almost instantly.[6] Their aging process is frozen at the age they were when they went through the program, and they can live to be very old.
