With the rise of Arcadia, a military was needed to defend the planet due to tensions between Earth and the recently colonized worlds around it. At the rise of the need to quickly form it, it was not properly divided into branches. After the near-unification of the entire star system, it developed into the Unified Procyon Defense Force.

Helljumper, Helljumper, where you been?
Feet first into hell and back again!
When I die please bury me deep!
Place an MA5 down by my feet!
Don't cry for me, don't shed no tear!
Just pack my box with PT gear!
Cuz one early morning 'bout zero-five!
The ground will rumble, there'll be lightning in the sky!
Don't you worry, don't come undone
It's just my ghost on a PT run!
