Background
The famous Tsholofelo family convened a conference on African uberhuman activity in 2003, bringing together some of the continent's most influential ubers and representing twenty-four governments.  The result of the Nairobi Conference was an accord to form a united African Force.  Not all countries signed on to the accord, but there was enough interest to establish five Africa Force teams.  The teams were based in Nairobi, Kenya (Africa Force 1); Harare, Zimbabwe (Africa Force 2); Cape Town, South Africa (Africa Force 3); Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (Africa Force 4); and Gaborone, Botswana (Africa Force 5).  The Tsholofelo family supplied the bases with high tech equipment and has become the de facto leader of the semi-independent forces.

In early 2006, Africa Force 4 was under attack. At the same time two calls for aid were received. In addition to the attack on Ouagadougou, simultaneous calls to action in northern Kenya and Zanzibar, Tanzania. Africa Force 1 dealt with both these emergencies, splitting up the team, despite all wanting to go to the aid of Africa Force 4. Serengeti, Heru-sa-Aset, and Resolute foiled a pro-Sons of Set coup attempt in Douala, Cameroon. Kilimanjaro and the Ethiopian known as Ibex, perished at the hands of the traitorous Africa Force 1 member, Congo, and Fatwa.

Subsequently, Lioness, sister of Kilimanjaro and daughter of Eland, has joined the team to replace her late brother. The uberwoman, Kanga, who had been working with the New Men, joined shortly after. The re-formed team captured Congo and forced Fatwa to flee. The team is still searching for another member, but has been careful to screen prospects after their experience with Congo.

Area of Operations
Africa Force is responsible for maintaining the security of African nations, predominantly in the south and west of the continent.  Areas that are off-limits include Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Chad, Niger and Eritrea which are known to be under the control of governments allied with, or under the control of, the Sons of Set.  The teams protect their base countries as a priority but have been given jurisdiction over all twenty of the accord countries including: Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Goals
Africa Force was created to safeguard the African people from uberhuman threats as well as natural disasters and armed insurgents.  It operates as a series of independent teams and only relies on member governments for a small portion of expenses.

The Africa Force 1 team has felt some regret that they had not been able to help Africa Force 4. They now take it upon themselves to mentor and assist their counterparts as much as possible.

Reputation
Africa Force has been in operation for three years and in that time has mostly involved itself in the clean up of natural disasters, the provision of humanitarian services and the occasional conflict with uberhuman threats, most notably against the Sons of Set, the Hunt and other mercenaries operating for a variety of employers.

The Force has gained recognition abroad and has been invited to many international conferences and symposiums on uberhuman threats.
