Under the leadership of Lord Kam Virai, the Department of Defense was organized into two Battlegroups. Each Battlegroup serves as a multi-role, rapid-response element that can undertake any operation without requiring any additional resources or units.
This served to correct the mistakes found in the previous, multi-division organisation that the Department of War had as well as more adequately serve the needs of the Kingdom given the size and potential issues that could occur in Elysian territory
Whilst there are two Battlegroups manned by the Department of Defense, a third Battlegroup can be formed from the reservist forces in the Kingdom of Elysia should the need arise. To this date, no reservist has been called into action.
