"Blackshirt" is a derrogatory term for Council Security. (Greetings from Earth). It is akin to the use of the word "pig" to describe a civilian officer of the law.


  • In the real world, the term "Blackshirt" was used for paramilitaries supporting Mussolini's fascist regime. Cf. "Redcoat".
  • The term may also have been inspired by the Nazis' Stormtroops (SA), which were called "brownshirts" because of their brown uniforms.
