A while after Richard had the sole power of the Nova Force the Worldmind decided to recruit a slew of new Nova Corps members to try to build out a new infrastructure of corpsmen. However, after War of Kings (which was basically their trial by fire) there only remained a handful of Nova Corps members of whom Richard took in to keep training seen here:

There was also Zan Philo who was kind of a Frankenstein'ish Nova Corps member given his weird arms:
So what did you think of this team?
I personally really liked them a lot, each character not only had the Nova force but also had innate abilities to add to that which for me was a pretty darn cool extra. I also liked that each had their own personality and didn't really feel like they blended together into one boring mass. I also liked how Richard kind of bumped down their power and uniforms to try to train them more slowly and thoroughly with Zan since they ranked up too fast when Worldmind drafted them.
