WIP - GROUPS OF INTEREST



Overview: This document contains information on various organizations and groups that have some similarity to the Authority in that they are known to deal with the paranormal and the occult. While many other organizations exist to suppress paranormal activities, there are those who use the paranormal as a means to achieve a larger agenda, and may be considered as a rival towards the Authority. Their objectives and methods are monitored and documented by the Authority to understand their true goal within the paranormal world— and in some cases, stop them from destroying humanity as a whole.

This page is for the links and information of all potential writers for such GoIs. Please, before you are set on writing for one of these GoIs, check their current amount of content and consider if it will come to fruition under the current GoI creation guidelines. You may be asked to remove the WIP-GoI related content upon posting your article if it does not reach the required amount of articles/authors needed for creation.

APAS stays afloat through the money gathered as admission fee to all of its members, as well as occasional auctions. APAS is not interested in comercially selling anomalies, at least not as a focus.

APAS is known to have interactions with GEAR, exchanging several high-value anomalies for technology pertaining to protetion and secrecy. This technology has stunted Authority efforted to locate and capture APAS gatherings.

Array - GA-02

Overview: The Array is a collective of artificial intelligences that have come together to prevent the extinction of humanity. They do this because they wish to have some sort of purpose to their existence, and there is no greater calling for a machine than purpose. The Array has 0 concern for the survival of individual humans, and because of this they will commonly use inhumane tactics to keep humanity alive.

The Array is cooperative with Authority efforts, but will not go out of its way to do so. Additionally, the Array looks at the survival of humanity in three distinct ways. And labels dangerous anomalous and non-anomalous phenomena in one of the three following categories in order to reflect that.

  • 1. Immediate Survival Threat: The phenomena/entity poses an immediate threat to humanity currently. Examples of this include various Purple/Black level anomalies.
  • 2. Continued Survival Threat: The phenomena/entity poses a threat to humanity's near to distant future. An example of this is Global Warming.
  • 3. Distant Survival Threat: The phenomena/entity poses a threat to humanity's survival in the very distant future. Examples include the expansion of the sun to envelope Earth.

The Array exists to keep humanity alive, and are more than willing to destroy anomalous objects in order to accomplish their goals. Additionally, the Array is unconcerned with anomalous objects that would have a danger rating of Red or lower.

Kabushiki Kawaii - GT-02

Overview: Kabushiki Kawaii is an underground, black market company which specializes in humanoid anomalies. The company's main focus is the creation, training, and sales of these anomalies, selling them as servants to wealthy customers or corporations.

Kabushiki Kawaii is known for its ability to create anomalous humanoids, which are primarily sold into the sex trade. These anomalous humanoids (primarily females) are the company's biggest export, who through a combination of genetic manipulation, brainwashing, and intimidation are often groomed to act as an individual's ideal sex slave or servant, depending on what is specified by the customer. The exact method that Kabushiki uses to create these products is unknown, but it is implied to be a mixture of biological science and anomalous technology. The reach of Kabushiki's genetic manipulation extends beyond the ability to create humanoid anomalies, but the company focuses on humanoids due to their popularity.

Although the main storefronts of Kabushiki Kawaii are known to reside somewhere in Japan, the company has offices, laboratories, and testing centers scattered across the world. Assistance from anomalous items, front companies, and under-the-table dealings are commonly used to prevent discovery. Individuals stumbling across the group by mistake are often bribed into silence or become products themselves. Kabushiki Kawaii is strictly focused on maintaining a low profile, and will not actively confront the Authority- but will make every attempt to stay hidden when discovered. Authority agents who have attempted to infiltrate Kabushiki laboratories have been rumored to become victims of their experimentation, although this cannot be fully confirmed.

The Authority works to apprehend any anomalies created by Kabushiki Kawaii for questioning and proper containment. Should a front company, laboratory, or testing center be identified, Authority forces are to clear the location and recover any anomalies or files found for research and containment purposes.

Idyllic’s Finest in Esoteric & Extravagant Delights - GT-01

Overview: The Idyllic’s Finest in Esoteric & Extravagant Delights is a collection of individuals of varying degrees of mental instability. They range from individuals that cannot string together coherent sentences, to individuals of exceptional intelligence and finesse. These individuals commonly derive goals from a lack of rationale, committing acts that make little to no logical sense. The individuals themselves are not anomalous in nature, but a common goal between the members of the group is to create and/or otherwise procure different anomalous objects. These objects usually constitute an effect on the user’s mind, often in the effect of driving the user to a form of psychosis and clinical insanity, or otherwise hindering rational thought. With the objects they procure, they generally use on each other, posing minimal threat to the populace at large, but have occasionally put civilian and Authority entities at risk. On rare occasions, their actions have caused direct damage to such targets, leading to multiple casualties.

This group is extremely unpredictable, and strategies developed by the Authority to neutralize the group rarely succeed. Due to their nature of being a loosely connected group, they cannot be directly dealt with, all Authority attempts to do so has resulted in another overlooked section of the group being uncovered elsewhere. This group is to be dealt with with extreme caution, but is not to be engaged on-sight. It is unknown the amount of anomalous objects the group has in its possession, and the danger of the objects is also unknown. If the Authority is to come into contact with another section of this group, they are to exercise extreme caution. It is mandatory for personnel to contact the Authority if they are to come into contact with IFEED, or otherwise become aware of their presence.

The Mercenaries of the Anomalous - GT-03

Overview: A diverse network of elite mercenaries, united by their determination to acquire and use the finest in anomalous equipment. Divided into numerous distinct outfits, they often trace their lineage back to notable historical units, taking on elements of their dress and equipment (often anomalous, matching or exceeding the capabilities of modern kit). An Afghani jezail that penetrates ten inches of steel - a dagger that tracks the source of blood in its fullet - a ceremonial shield that shatters bullets - infinitely diverse and eclectic, it's impossible to predict the skills and abilities each mercenary might possess. Disdaining money unless necessary, their thirst for anomalous equipment and warrior ethos leads the mercenaries into the employ of many anomalous GOIs. The rich collectors of APAS, fanatics of Malthus, businessmen of Nucorp, even the Authority; the allegiances of the various mercenary outfits are as diverse as their equipment, reflecting the bias of their members, philosophy, and experience.

German Anomalous Research Division - Archived (Previously GT-01)

Overview: GARD was active during WW2 and acted as the German military's anomalous research and weapons development division. Their activities during the early stages of the war forced the Allies to create the RAVAAF (RPC Authority Volunteer Army for the Allied Force).

After the Second World War, GARD retreated to Argentina, where they remained undetected by Authority intelligence until 1973. On March 18th 1983 GARD was completely destroyed. Today some of their artifacts still remain, but they do not.

BündesOkkultAbteilung (FOA) - AGID

Overview: The FOA is a federal department of the German government with the express purpose of investigating, containing and/or eliminating anomalous organizations, entities, and objects that threaten the German nation or people. The organization has near-complete independence, being able to operate with the full support of the German government, and more importantly, without their supervision.

The FOA originated as a loose coalition of German Catholic inquisitors rooting out heretics in the HRE during the middle ages. With the reformation taking root in many German kingdoms throughout the HRE, the unofficial coalition lost much of its power, however, remnants of inquisitors, along with reformed investigators, remained to investigate anomalous entities after their decline. The FOA first officially came into being by the order of Chancellor Bismark. Their original purpose was to investigate and eliminate anomalous entities that could pose a threat to the newly created German empire. However, under Kaiser Wilhelm II during the first world war, the FOA took on a far more proactive role, and started to research and even create anomalous entities for the war effort. These measures largely failed however, and after Germany's defeat, the FOA was disbanded by the ally powers. The FOA did not come back into existence until 1943, when they splintered from the GOI known as the GARD, Germany's anomalous investigation agency under Hitler. Certain members of GARD grew disgruntled with nazi practices regarding anomalous entities and objects. In addition, old supporters of the Kaiser or Wehrmacht Republic saw an opportunity with the failing war effort. These members soon splintered off and joined with the hiding dissenters, thus forming a loose resistance group that would eventually become the FOA.

As the war drew to a close and the GARD waned in power, the FOA grew. The FOA was able to successfully re-contain several anomalous entities that the GARD were unable to due to a loss of funding. During the chaos after the war, the FOA became far more prominent, with funding from the allies to help contain any entities in the occupied German territories. The FOA were unable to operate in Soviet occupied territories, however, resulting in many anomalous instances being left unchecked in the eastern most part of Germany. The FOA officially, albeit secretly, came into being with the reunification of Germany into a single sovereign state.

Loch Cataloging Corporation (LCC) - GT-03

Overview: Loch Cataloging Corporation is a corporation in Scotland that specializes in marine biology and technology. The people of LCC have been partnered with GEAR, who supplies them with their technology for a few of their earnings from the Oceanic Programs that support LCC. Oceanic programs support the LCC because the Corporation shows themselves as an organization set on finding out about aquatic entities as unknown species. LCC does have a website that is shadow banned by the Authority along with any images and documents made by them so that the Authority can keep the true purpose of LCC a secret because of how open they are about the anomalous on their site. LCC has also cataloged locations in the deep sea that are anomalous along with the gathering of anomalous objects from the sea that usually affect water in certain ways.

Antares - GA-03

scorpion_PNG12135.png

Overview: Antares or the "Scorpions Heart" is a marauder styled GoI with the goal of expanding its reach in the anomalous underground world by the creation of anomalous drugs and the collection and biding of anomalies. The group's higher-ups are influenced by a mysterious ancient alien vessel stuck inside a black hole located somewhere near the core of the Andromeda Galaxy.

Formed around 1962, after the discovery of ET-008-A-014 and the multiple attempts to send transmissions towards the object; Blue Book researchers grew close to insanity due to ET-008-A-014 memetic effects which affected the ideology of the researchers to obsess over this object. The researchers would be classified as rouge and sentenced to termination but before termination, the facility suffered from a minor containment breach and the researchers were able to slip out of the facility and fled to rural mid-western United States.

The researchers were able to sell information about Blue Book activities to buyers and build up their budget. Slowly hiring private military contractors and construction contractors to construct safehouses underground and guards for the newly constructed safehouses. In the present day, the Antares is a major group of interest in the anomalous underground and operates in several large facilities and smaller outposts around North America and Europe. The organization is divided into three branches.
