A-21 is a small terrorist cell focusing operations in Japan. They are funded by Amalgam and become the focus of Mithril operations when they personally assaulted a secret Mithril meeting in which TDD-1 Captain Testarossa was present to observe and gather intel on a boy who was arrested for assaulting an airport personnel. The captured boy was showing signs of being administred with a drug ("TI-971") used to help control a Lambda Driver equipped AS. A-21 sacrifices most of its leadership and assets when they attack Tokyo with the Behemoth and afterwards cease to become a threat.

A-21 was initially a welfare organization funded by a former mercenary, Seiji Takechi. It's purpose was to rehabilitate juvenile delinquents who had gotten into considerable amounts of trouble. He gathered these children and sent them to a deserted island he had purchased. Takechi taught them complete survival and battle skills. They learned how to survive and win a battle where electricity, water or food were not available. As Seina explained:

"We gained a fortune called confidence. We were so happy when we realized we didn't need to commit crimes any more. But other people didn't think so. One time, a TV station found out about our training. They landed on the island without permission. They touched the equipment and there was an accident. It was such a mess after that. They all accused us no matter what caused it. They called A-21 a terrorist group and had the training facility shut down. They revealed the past of the students. Mine too.
