—The Catastrophe Messengers' creed

In the world of Arknights, a Catastrophe Messenger is an individual responsible for observing, analyzing, and studying Catastrophes to learn more about their nature, including their forecasting and mitigation. This makes Catastrophe Messengers' service highly sought after, especially by nation-states and organizations to improve their preparations for the otherwise unpredictable Catastrophes.

Catastrophe Messengers are also known for establishing and maintaining Contingency Contract, an organization providing communication systems and interfaces between willing participants, intended to be used to coordinate humanitarian efforts in high-pressure operations that necessitate efficient tactical and logistical support.[1]

According to Ayerscarpe, Contingency Contract is nothing more but a platform that offers up bounties and sets goals to be accomplished, meaning that despite fashioning itself as a humanitarian organization, C.C. may connect mercenaries and hitmen and their clients and may not scrutinize every contract passed under its systems, and the otherwise well-regulated organization has been affected by corruption to some extent.[2]

Rhodes Island had been closely partnering with Contingency Contract prior to the Chernobog uprising, and their contract was temporarily cut off between each other.[1]
