A Wraith Minion, disparagingly referred to as a bonehead by dissenting opposing forces, was a member of the elite shock troops in the Dark Regime Army, the land-based forces of the Dark Regime. They were particularly distinguished by their loyalty to Streafo Chaoux, the Supreme Commander of the Regime, and were reputedly incapable of betraying either him or the Regime. Wraith Minions wore colored hoods, black metallic carbon-fiber body armor, and occasionally capes. They were trained for multiple forms of combat using various melee weapons and firearms.
In most cases Wraith Minions were Skule males but there were a number of females and other races mixed in. The non-Skule Wraith Minions wore helmets that resembled a skull so they would blend in with the rest of the Wraiths. Members would vary in size so they would wield weapons best suited for their body type and natural abilities including:
- Plasma pistols
- Plasma rifles
- Throwing blades
- Konda swords
- Plasma lances
Specialized Wraith Minions
A number of special Wraith Minion variants were created. These included:
- Wraith Guards, gold decorated Doom Wratih Minions reserved as the Supreme Commander's personal bodyguards. They had enhanced strength, speed, and intelligence compared to lower ranking Wraith Minions. They would wield plasma lances.
- Wraith Pilots, trained to fly anything from a military land craft to a space destroyer and to serve as technicians.
- SCUBA Minions, adapted to work and fight underwater.
- Wraith Scouts, camo minions trained for recon on harsh terrain. Wore camouflage armor rather than black.
The rank of a Wraith Minion was determined by the color worn on their hood and cape, face paint or helmet, and arm, shoulder, body and leg armor.
- Silver - Dread Wraith Minions served as commanders within the Dark Regime Army. They had enhanced strength, speed, and intelligence compared to lower ranking Wraith Minions.
- Sapphire - Malice Wraith Minions served as captains within the Dark Regime Army. They had enhanced strength and intelligence compared to lower ranking Wraith Minions.
- Ruby - Rage Wraith Minions served as lieutenants within the Dark Regime Army. They had enhanced strength compared to lower ranking Wraith Minions.
- Emerald - Strife Wraith Minions served as sergeants within the Dark Regime Army.
- None - Standard Wraith Minions were standard troopers within the Dark Regime Army.
