To shephard in the future, we must build an improved 'tomorrow'.
Within the Legion
, secret to even the topmost military officials that run most of the organization, is a covert group working to bring about a new future to all of Cathedris. Made up of 9 members across various branches of the Legion, and sworn to silence; this group, known as the Altruistic Concilium of Sacred Architecture, operates within the shadows -- pulling blasphemous strings and conducting untold horrors in the name of a "better" tomorrow.
Purpose beyond mortal ken
It began slightly over a decade ago, when Legion operatives discovered the Errant Thoughtseed
deep within an ancient cave. Following directives laid out by then head of Legion intelligence, Dr. Anabelle Evingston
, the Legionnaires brought out the mind twisting, secret revealing artifact, and it immediately began to whisper terrible hidden truths to all those near by.
Not long after, still under the directives of Dr. Evingston, a secret core organization began to form within the Legion. They began construction of a new lab, under the guise of simple "research", and started to hand-pick members that would be sworn to secrecy -- or sometimes forced with transmutive Catalurgy
Repeat after me: I am no one. I know nothing. I've seen nothing.
Officially, the mission of the ACSA is to bring about a new future for Cathedris. To them, the God-husks
are outdated -- a nuisance. There exists no intelligence behind those dead stares, no will propelling their shambling forms. They are unworthy of worship, and worst of all, they're the source of the ever threatening Rendlings
that constantly attack humanity.
Thus, the singular goal of the Altruistic Concilium of Sacred Architecture is the creation of a new god; one that may eradicate the stains of the past, and usher in a new future with one deity worthy of worship, and one organization below to dictate its rule.
Working from within the Shadows
These days the ACSA has grown substantially; Dr. Evingston brought on another 8 like-minded individuals to form the core of the Concilium. Each one believes wholly in their mission statement, and would die to protect the secrecy they work within.
The group has small laboratories and research centers spread all across the globe in innocuous places. The 500 or so people that work under the leadership of the 9 are distributed almost evenly across each location, and are confined to it, so as to prevent any information from leaking out to the general public.
No ship is entirely leak proof; no lips can prevent all sound from passing. Despite the Concilium's best efforts, a few documents have managed to leak out to Legion Resistance members. This has sparked Rumours of the 15th
across the globe, threatening the entire operation.
