The head of the organization is known as The All. Just underneath The All is the The Few; a group of seven leaders who are the only ones to know the true identity of The All. The true identities of the The Few are unknown to most of the guild, or even each other, but they control the guild at the behest of The All by issuing orders, voting on policy, and inducting new members. The rest of the organization, known as The Many, is tiered by colors corresponding to the value of the rupee. Green members are the foot-soldiers who get the lowest paying and less glamorous jobs and tend to die easily, whereas the gold members are the best of the best. If a gold member is sent out, you can rest assured that whatever the problem is, it will be taken care of swiftly and discreetly. In order to go up in rank from green to blue, you must have successfully killed a target without getting caught. Blue members can obtain red status by killing five targets, or successfully completing 12 non-kill missions. From red to purple, 12 confirmed kills or 30 missions. Purple to silver: 25 kills and 50 missions. Gold? 50 confirmed kills and 100 missions, plus a special recommendation to The Few from another gold member.
The main goal of The Society is to influence the political and financial landscape in The All's favor. While the grunts are mostly in it for the money and social networking, they all understand that their benefactor will quickly turn into their executioner if they do not do all that they can towards this single objective. By helping The All reach goals, The Few hope to be rewarded with wealth and political clout when The All's new world order comes to fruition.
