Background

A powerful covert faction made up of members from the political, military, and intelligence community from any of an untold number of UN member states. They see themselves as the last line of global defense against the furthering aggression of the metahuman community into worldly affairs Their goal is to either manipulate, dominate, or eliminate any meta continuing to usurp power from what they believe to be the natural order of geopolitics. It's existence is only known by the very highest levels of authority and denied at every turn out of fear of metahuman reprisal.

Over the past decade they have developed an infrastructure to siphon off funding, technology, and critical intelligence from sources both within their member nations, as well as various private enterprises to further the cause. They currently monitor and act against metas through indirect sources as they continue to rebuild their arsenal after a catastrophic setback from 3 years ago. Forced to adapt to the changing landscape they now operate as numerous smaller cells, each formed to act as a nearly self contained unit, and designed to function independently until the resources are in place to go forward with their planned offensive.

Black Cell has furthered their cause on the battlefield by constantly collecting and reverse engineering any technologies collected through the countless metahuman conflicts across the globe. Even those that proved to be far too advanced to recreate were the source of useful discoveries to apply to designs of their own creation. They are willing to apply this to weapons outlawed by the Geneva Conventions as well as other articles ruling modern warfare, knowing they need every edge against the powers that be among their adversaries.

Organizational Structure

The Nucleus - Known internally as the Old Men, these six paragons of political power are the central leadership of the organization. Every one has served at the highest levels of their respective governments before joining the cause at one time or another. For security reasons these men never meet in person, in fact each is stationed on a separate continent to compartmentalize the losses in the event of one of them becoming compromised.

Known Members: None

Station Chiefs - These are the senior agents of the organization and are spread out across the globe covering every major international city. Responsible for all operations and intelligence gathering for their assigned geographic area. All assigned actions either using internal or outside operators need to be approved by this level, getting the ok from the Old Men for any targets of major interest.

Known Members: None

Agents - Black Cell has infiltrated multiple governments at nearly every level and their membership includes agents of all disciplines. Diplomats with the State Department, accountants with the Treasury, scientists at DARPA, their fingers are in every pie that holds power and influence useful to them. Between all of these dedicated followers they have accumulated a level of technology unheard of outside the metahuman community.

Known Members: None

Field Operators

Dreadnaughts - These are the walking tanks of their general arsenal. Highly trained soldiers from varying branches encased in a titanium/steel plated exo-skeleton that allows them to carry the heavy ordinance packed onto the armored shell and retain the ability to be mobile. While capable of lifting in excess of 2 tons these units are not made for hand to hand combat, nearly all its strength is consumed to handle the mission specific payload.

The units are designed to bring high levels of firepower and defense at the cost of mobility and speed. In almost every configuration modified off the shelf military hardware is selected.

Standard Armament

Shoulder mounted M134 Mini-gun (10,000 armored piercing or explosive rounds in armored back case)

Shoulder mounted FIM-92 Stinger (single anti-air missile)

Arm mounted XM25 Punisher 25mm Grenade Launcher (6 rounds with airbursting capability)

Arm mounted .50 Semi-auto assault cannon (1,000 armored piercing rounds)

Enforcers - These are the elite foot soldiers used by Black Cell in an infantry capacity. Clad in head to toe body armor they are well protected but nowhere near as durable as the Dreadnaughts and their armored exo-skeletons. Generally assigned to guard facilities or escort other units in the field as their firepower is not suitable for combat with any meta with mid tier durability or better. Their strength is in numbers and military precision actions.

Standard Armament

XM8 assault rifle with integrated XM320 grenade launcher (60 round armor piercing / 3 grenades)

IMI Desert Eagle Mark XX (8 round armor piercing)

Finders - Culled from intelligence agencies all over the world, these are the field agents responsible for tracking and keeping profiles up to date for all known metas, as well as new ones as they appear on the scene. Every meta on record has at least one Finder assigned to their case, more are assigned on an as needed basis depending on their current threat assessment and reviewed constantly. Higher profile targets will have permanent teams of Finders stationed across the world at any locations relevant to them.

Standard Armament

Sidearm of choice with military class ammunition

Custom designed Sat Phone and Hacking Optimized Laptop

Silenecers - No organization of this size can stay in secret for long without the personnel available to silence those who get to close to discovering it's existence and making it public. Silencers are trained assassins in charge of eliminating any threat that requires a delicate touch over brute force. The methods used are varied and are routinely designed to place the blame on another government agency, or the metahuman community itself. These are the most elite operators in terms of training and skill and have access to nearly everything in the Black Cell arsenal when they are assigned to assassinate a meta, including experimental and prototype technologies.

Standard Armament

Mission specific and highly advanced

T.E.M.P.s - Classified

A lot closer to the Purifiers than an Illuminati actually, just very good at staying in the background.

It's not a team in the usual sense

As for the equipment, if they have been siphoning off equipment from various governments, it should show in their armament

OOC - These guys are not done and are not going to be used for any RPG or events for a while. Down the road this will be used for a Vine-wide event, IC you don't even need to worry about them for some time.

Don't worry about making changes in regard to them. They are just a plot device for the time being.

Grandpa and dad had prepared her for this, readied her for this moment. Years of pain and lessons building up to conditioning for this very day. Her and her mother had spent hours upon hours fine tuning the armor system. Victoria fealt like she had to impress them, come with a armor that rivaled theirs. The records fine tuned by her mom and herself to give the finest details possible. The recomendation letters of Eric and Leo Lionfang long formal and well writen. She was dressed in a formal blue dress sword resting at her side nobley. Long blond hair tied back cascaded down the backpack that secretly housed all the things that helped Victoria fight the so called superior beings. "Victoria Elizabeth Lionfang here for my apointment." Her soft voice soaked with respect and admiration treating the front guard like a superior officer.

The guard led the young blond in, and the trek to the actual facility soon began. The building was fronted as little more then the standard office building. She passed by workers doing odd end typical jobs. And if she were to ask them what they did they would respond with a typical job. Some even did the typical job, the place was so well organized that the people who knew wouldn't tell anything, the people who didn't know were none the wiser. They took her to the top floor by two elevators. They stopped mid floor, floor thirty three to be exact. On that floor one had to take a specific elevator. Behind the button was a ID system functioning by finger print. The elevator was on that floor the entire time but if you didn't have access to go to the specific room it led to that door never opened. And ONLY if someone needed to speek to the figure heads of the building did the back door open. Today that back door did.

"Victoria Elizabeth Lionfang, please take a seat." The voice spoke as if offering a position of choice. But only she was expected for interviewing and assessment, and because of this only one seat was pressent. "Let us begin by taking a look first at your armor and credentials." The lighting revealed almost nothing other then the hands that touched the backpack and the glasses reflecting off light.

(build up! To what? Thats for me to know ;P)

"This armor is a strong design must of spent half your life fine tuning this at the least" Victoria simply nodding in thanks. "Its not the finest armor but its incredible what you did with minimal resources. And the focus on solar energy makes it reliable at virtually any time. However I think enough about that, we can see you've got a talent for gear. You want this to be proffession why would you not have it correct?" Again to which the young blond just nodded. "Lets move on to you yourself."

"While we've got your record in paper it means so much more in person. Explain to us what led you hear?" The man with glasses asked, the light making his frames almost glow pure white. It was impossible to identify this man. Or any around him, the only clear face was her own.

"I was raised in a milita based fashion. Not abused as a child but from roughly eight am to eight pm I was studying or being conditioned sir. Warriors are born, soldiers are made. When the time cones, we'll need both as one. I've acumulated fourteen scars, a testiment of human will. To be the best you've got to train and thats what I did. At the age of eighteen I inlisted in the army, serving in combat situations across the world. Never failed a single mission, it comes before all else and gets done no matter the sacrifice we have to make. My first kill was at the age of fifteen I don't hesitate." Of course the corporation could lead between the lines. She was a lion at heart, but they made her into a weapon for the future. The time, was reffering to when the metas got out of control. Never failed meant no matter who had to be taken out or sacrificed so it would be. Better to save generations of humans for the cost of one, rather then let one live to day and potential hundreds die tommorow. And when she said first kill, she specifically meant first mutant.

"We've one remaining question for you miss Lionfang."

(*pause for effect*!! lol)
