Cradle is an independent unit that travels the world investigating Aragami and finding inhabitable areas for Satellite homes.
- Most of the former 1st Unit members transferred to this branch except for Kota, who elected to remain at the Far East Branch and become the First Unit's leader in Protagonist (God Eater)'s place.
- Cradle is first introduced in God Eater 2.
- All Cradle members wear white jackets/vests as official uniforms.
- Tsubaki Amamiya is possibly a member as well since she appears with Lindow and the Burst protagonist in the God Eater -the 2nd break- on a separate mission from Alisa and Soma.
- In Kyuubi's filler arc in God Eater 2, several Cradle members are not seen physically, but their voices can be heard.
- The Protagonist (God Eater Online) and Maria Yagami are also members of Cradle. However, due to the fact that Maria was going to be dispatched to the Himalayan Branch she recommended that the Protagonist (God Eater Online) take her place. They were accepted a year and half later after Maria was sent to the Himalayan Branch.
