During the Cold War, Scion destroyed a nuclear test missile and the facility that launched it. This wasn't widely known, but it led the US to de-emphasize nuclear weapons under the (correct) belief that he would stop any nuclear conflict, effectively ending the Cold War.[8] Although the details weren't publcized, it was generally known that the threat of Scion was what led nuclear powers to stand down.[9]

The Protectorate and PRT were founded as US organizations under President James Griffin,[10][1] although they later expanded to Canada.[citation needed]Dragon was forbidden from using viruses to infect the computers of Americans that didn’t have a warrant out for their arrests.
