The International Bastard Squad or I.B.S for short, Is a team of mercenaries that are well known in the City of Vita Nova, It has been led by Shade the Hedgehog in the past with completely different members, its is now currently led by Airon "Jonic" Hikarikaze to this day
The team mostly work for any type of free lance but it mostly involves fighting off the Cyrex Empire and the Dark Reframe,otherwise the group will do anything anytime.
The team's name's origins are left over from the original team as Jonic took over the team when he and his friends Jacob the Pikachu, Nega C Payne and Optimus Twat Kiefer reformed the group years later, With the help of Yuri Violet and Darkness the hedgehog the team managed to set up base in an old abandoned mansion within sector seven of the metropolis of Vita Nova City.
At first the group were feared by people and mobian around the city for being mercenaries which made business rather tough. It wasnt until the group fought off an attack by Doctor Edgar Cyrex that the team started to gain trust from the civilians, following on the group of 6 started to flourish with their own skills and capabilities gaining more and more trust and fans from the cityfolk.
This did not mean the group did not make any new friends and teammates as the team started to grow bigger and stronger as many notable members such as Peach Lightwater and Surprisingly Shade the Hedgehog joined the team. But it was not without loss either for the death of Yuri violet depressed Jonic which made the others have to fight without their leader for some time. It was the war of Vita Nova against the dark reframe that made Jonic feel worse as his fatherly figure Breaker Earthsoul died in action giving his final wish and sword to Jonic before passing.
This made Jonic turn more serious about fighting as he continue to lead the group further into battle gaining more foes and allies along the way.
