Independents here refer to Lynx who are unaffiliated with the major corporations yet are also still open to working with them. Examples from the Lynx War include the Aspina colony's Joshua O'Brien or Anatolia's Mercenary from the eponymous Anatolia colony. Whereas, Lynx who actively oppose the corporations are typically classified as Irregulars, like Amazigh of the Maghrib Liberation Front or the ORCA Brigade's Lynx roster. Some Independents take jobs from factions such as these as well.

By the Economic War, Independents are registered under the Lynx management organization Collared.
