To understand the WildCATs, you need to know about the Kherubim and the Daemonites, two alien species that have been locked in war for ages. On Earth, the Kherubim and Daemonites have been waging war for a thousand years, using their half-breed spawn and agents to engage in cold wars, proxy wars, and shadow conflicts. The Kherubim, and their followers, answer to Lord Emp on Earth; while the Daemonite forces are under the command of Helspont.
Neither Emp or Helspont are typical examples of their species. Kherubim come in all shapes and sizes (as they are actually a coalition of several races with common ancestry) but generally look pretty much human and Daemonites are generally reptilian with four arms (but they can also become incorporeal to possess people and thus take human form).
Now, the WildCATs are a special strike team built by Lord Emp using his human persona of Jacob Marlowe (a wealthy billionaire and head of the Halo Corporation) to assemble a crack team of operatives able to take down the biggest and baddest of the Daemonite threats as they come up.
