KORPS is revealed. While we continue to pursue our true secret objective, there is no sense in hiding the rest of the organisation. Unleash them!
KORPS is the criminal organisation featuring in MI High after the events of The Fall of SKUL. Corpse is the name given to a dead body, KORPS is named after that and each of it's divisions is named after a body part/function. The identity of the first in command, The Mastermind is never revealed, while the identity of the second in command, The Crime Minister is revealed.
In the bunker, an old MI9 war room beneath MI9 HQ, a large board with different KORPS division and their relationships was seen during Trojan KORPS.
In The Mayze, when the team entered an old KORPS base The Mayze, Tom noted that the bottom floor was about 0.5 miles underground and he was not even sure if it was the bottom. As each level of the Mayze was operated by a different division of KORPS, it is implied that there are many different divisions, at least before and during the war.
Various KORPS division leaders signed in at the end of Trojan KORPS, after The Mastermind admitted to The Crime Minister that there is not sense in hiding the rest of the organisation and ordered her to unleash them. However, most of their voices were scrambled together, so it is unsure as to what most of their names were. It is also not known how many divisions of KORPS there are, as only a few have been seen or discussed in detail, but (based on the number of KORPS division leaders that signed in at the end of Trojan KORPS) it can be assumed that there are at least twelve KORPS division. It is unknown how many KORPS divisions existed during the war but, based on the events of various episodes, there were at least eight.
KORPS is an organisation that Frank, Stella and MI9 went to war with over 10 years ago. A full scale secret world war broke out between MI9 and KORPS and both sides fought across the globe. Frank was the commander of the team in the final battle with KORPS. It resulted in the death of his team and Frank was the only victim to get out alive when he had to destroy KORPS' Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (IBM). However, the KORPS leadership survived and, after staying in hiding for over 10 years, they rose to power again in The Fall of SKUL.
In Frankenstein and The Beginning, it was revealed that KORPS existed before World War II and their science division STERNUM was working on a super-soldier program that was later abandoned.
In The Last Stand, The Heart, KORPS' supercomputer, is destroyed.

Frank mentions that the last M.I.9 team that was sent to find The Mayze vanished 12 years ago, the body of one of the missing agents was found by Keri near the exit. Tom was unable to scan beyond the floor located 0.5 miles beneath the surface.
- Frankenstein, The Beginning: another abandoned KORPS base is found under St Hearts. STERNUM ran a project attempting to create super-soldiers during WWII, but the project was abandoned and the base sealed in 1941. The entrance hatch was initially found by Roly when he was putting a wind gauge into the school garden. Aneisha and Tom drew him away from it and later investigated with Dan, Keri and Frank. After the events of the episode, the base was resealed by M.I.9 and the team was ordered to stay away. Stella found a classified file about the base at M.I.9 HQ, but she did not have clearance to access the file. She has promised to look further into it. Frank and the team hacked the file.
