|~ The Triumvirate's famous quote.|
The Triumvirate, whose members are known as Gaius, Nero, and Commodus, are the main antagonists of Contra: Shattered Soldier.
The Triumvirate are a trio of men who had governed Earth. Prior to the start of the Contra series, a miner had discovered the Moirai shrine on Jupiter. Upon entering the shrine, they had stolen the Relic of Moirai, and this caused Red Falcon, Black Viper, and other aliens to attack Earth in order to get the Relic back. After Red Falcon was destroyed in Contra III: The Alien Wars and Black Viper was destroyed in Contra 4, Bill Rizer was framed for destruction of 80% of the world's population as well as murdering his partner Lance Bean. Bill was sentenced to 10,000 years in cryogenic prison, but was released 5 years later to fight off the Blood Falcon terrorist organization, led by Lance Bean. After defeating Lance, Lance revealed the truth about the Triumvirate and the alien attacks on Earth to Bill and Lucia with his last breath. But as Bill and Lucia confront the Triumvirate, the analysis on the Relic is complete. But by then, the Relic merges with the Triumvirate and kills them.
