A Trion Soldier (トリオン兵 Torion Hei?) is a drone made out of and running on trion. Some are sent to the human world by Neighbors to scout, salvage trion organs, and capture humans with high trion ability.
Concerning their aims, various Trion Soldiers exist, such as those that specialize in bombing, battle, or capture. Depending on the circumstances in the Neighbor countries, the nature of the dispatched Trion Soldiers also varies. The likes of Rads used in order to open gates anywhere displayed Border's Defense Readiness capabilities. The Bamster, the Bander, and the Rabbit are Trion Soldiers created specifically to capture people alive. There also exist Trion Soldiers made for attack, which either specialize in mass-destruction or combat.
