Spriggans (スプリガン Supurigan?) or Strikers[1] from the English translation, are secret agents in the Spriggan manga. They are recruited by the ARCAM Corporation in order to do covert work in hostile areas without compromising the company since they don't carry any identification that would give away any links to ARCAM, even though its enemies know that they would deploy them in action. Some agents would be recruited from ARCAM funded or assisted establishments. Yu Ominae, for one, was recruited by ARCAM when he entered high school in Japan, which happened to be funded by the ARCAM Corporation.

Spriggans are classified as S-Class agents.


Although most Spriggan agents are issued with a device called the Armored Muscle (AM) Suit, a jumpsuit made from Omihalcon, only Japanese operative Yu Ominae is known to be the wearer of the suit. When activated, it would use artificial muscles to help them carry heavy items and weapons with their hands 30 times their own normal weight while making them impervious to bullets and melee weapons.
