In brief: Complement

The complement system helps antibodies and phagocytic cells clear pathogens.
It is part of the immune system called the innate immune system that is not adaptable and does not change over the course of an individual's lifetime. However, it can be recruited and brought into action by the adaptive immune system. Generally synthesized by the liver. Stimulated by one of several triggers....Etc.
