In the HoB Alternate Universe, FBI ranks are divided into four colour-coded categories denoting both pay grade, daily uniform, dress uniform, and clearance (regarding classification).
Red—lowest rank in the FBI. Food handlers, drivers, delivery handlers, sanitation and janitorial, Employees in the Red category do not move outside of this rank, though there are two separate distinctions within this rank: Red Rank and Crimson Agents Red Ranks Not usually referred to as agents, simply “Red Ranks” “I’m a Red Rank.”
Crimson Agents which is a title gained after years of service and experience, which allows them access to higher security clearence. Personal assistants to the big wigs are Crimson Agents One of the requirements to become a Crimson Agents is to have a Vocal Restrictor and Cochlear Regulators implanted. The Vocal Restrictor is a chip implanted in the tongue. A sensor within the chip can be activated to disable the movement of the tongue for communication. The Cochlear Regulator is a chip implanted into the cochlea of both ears. A sensor within the chip can be activated to disable hearing for temporary periods of time.

Blue—considered the 'Middle Grade' of the FBI. The majority of Junior Agents fall into this category.
“Basic Blues”—agents belonging to this division are not inexperienced, simply unassigned to a certain group. Many agents like being Basic because it gives them the opportunity to work with many different divisions and enables them to travel to different part of the country.

“Basic Whites”—agents belonging to this grouping have not been assigned to a specific division, allowing them the opportunity to help where help is needed. Unlike Basic Blues, Basic Whites usually don’t travel from office to office, often staying in the office where they are assigned. Usually after a few years they will pick a division to work in
Patriot League Division Motto: absit iniuria verbis "let injury by words be absent" Patriot Agents are few, only 241 in the FBI.
