NIGHTHAVEN is a Private Military Company that was founded and is currently led by Jaimini Kalimohan Shah.
Background[edit | edit source]
After enlisting in the Indian military, Jaimini Kalimohan Shah was disappointed to learn that women were not allowed to serve in combat units. After leaving the military, she used her families fortune and influence to create her own Private Security Company to operate inside India's borders. In order to expand her clientele, Jaimini founded the Private Military Company NIGHTHAVEN to operate overseas. The organization regularly negotiates multi-million dollar contracts with clients across the globe.
In 2019 Six invited Kali, Wamai, and by extension, NIGHTHAVEN, to join Rainbow. Officially, this was done in response to NIGHTHAVEN answering a distress call on the super tanker Argus. Pirates attacked the ship and threatened to kill everyone onboard should they not receive command of the ship. NIGHTHAVEN was able to successfully neutralize the pirates without such incident. Secretly, the real reason Six had invited Kali and Wamai was to prevent an opposing organization from hiring NIGHTHAVEN and to keep a close eye on them.
As part of a joint UN operation in Somalia between NIGHTHAVEN and the Forsvarets Spesialkommando, Kali's life was saved by Håvard "Ace" Haugland. The offer to join NIGHTHAVEN swiftly followed
In late 2020, Kali traveled to Bangkok, Thailand and approached Apha "Aruni" Tawanroong with an offer to join NIGHTHAVEN. Aruni accepted Kali's offer due to the prospect of gaining access to cutting-edge prosthetics as well as donating her pay to charities.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- NIGHTHAVEN is very protective of their intellectual property.
- They had stopped all attempts by Mira and other operators to evaluate their equipment, even having lawyers issue cease and desist letters. This has also prevented her from suggesting any possible improvements to their equipment.
- Prior, Wamai and Fuze both utilized their gadgets against one another in the kill house, worrying Kali.
- In addition, Aruni previously worked with Thermite before her injury and occasionally travels with Twitch and Nomad.
- Ash strongly opposed Kali and Wamai's recruitment into Rainbow, telling Six he was "making a mistake".
- It was initially confirmed that the organization would play a large role in story related content in Year 5. This was later revealed to be the addition of two Operators across two expansions.
- In the Year 5 roadmap, the Operator for Season 3, who was later revealed to be Zero, was hinted to be part of NIGHTHAVEN. This was later cited as an error as it was meant for the Season 4 Operator Aruni.
- Aruni's addition to the organization marks NIGHTHAVEN the first CTU to recieve four members since the game launched.
