Blacklight is the codename given to an elite special forces unit that undertook covert operations on behalf of the worked black op missions for the United States government. Members were known to have been pulled in from all over the world and given US citizenship.

The squad’s leader Major Clancy Wallencheck had received several commendations for bravery before joining Blacklight.

Unfortunately during a mission in Cuba most of the team were wiped out when they were ambushed by drug runners. Clancy and a few others, including Jack Kelly, his second-in-command, survived the massacre and then dropped out of sight.
