A mysterious maverick to say the least, the Illusive Man heads the Cerberus network. Dubbed "the

illusive empire" by investigators, Cerberus is an allegedly untraceable syndicate of private intelligence

agencies, biotics laboratories, engineering and scientific research teams, and lucrative front companies.



Branded a terrorist and seditionist organization by authorities, Cerberus is the only human power base

other than the Terra Firma Party strong enough to embarrass - if not threaten - the Council and its

human representatives.





=== Mercenaries: Blue Suns ===





Founded by notorious batarian slaver Solem Dal'serah, the Blue Suns began as a Skyllian Verge

protection racket providing genuine protection from slavers and pirates. Eventually captured by the

Systems Alliance Navy, Dal'serah beat almost two dozen charges to be convicted on a single count of

conspiracy. The slaver benefited from the tutelage of cellmate and brilliant con artist Bernard "Legits"

Ledger. Upon release five years later, Dal’serah incorporated Blue Suns as a legal security agency.



Today, the Blue Suns boast a galaxy-wide force of batarians, turians, humans, and krogan. Each

deployment is backed by a logistics corps selling everything from heavy weapons to shaving cream.

Despite claims that Blue Suns sell its captives as slaves, no Blue Suns employee has ever been convicted

on such charges.



Many Blue Suns members sport the company logo in tattoo form, removed during assignments and

reapplied at mission-end.





=== Mercenaries: Eclipse ===





Brainchild of asari commando Jona Sederis, Eclipse was incorporated as a "proactive" security company.

Influenced by asari and Salarian military doctrine, Eclipse specializes in sabotage, assassination, and

Page 55

personal and organizational security. Although Citadel governments regard the corporation with

suspicion, it's embraced in the Skyllian Verge and Terminus Systems.



Early on, Sederis sought government contracts to establish market share against the better-established

Blue Suns. Her agency scored a galactic PR coup by retaking several space stations captured by the

Anhur People's Liberation Army and neutralizing its leaders, a victory Eclipse's marketing department

never ceases trumpeting.



Based on Omega Station, Eclipse controls nearly 20% of the asteroid's real estate. Its services range from

mech repair to open warfare, although assassination is reserved for meeting wider, longer-term

company goals (for instance, preemptive strikes against pirates rather than murdering spouses for

insurance money.) Despite numerous reports, Eclipse denies sabotaging or kidnapping business rivals.





=== Mercenaries: The Blood Pack ===





Originally a small Terminus Systems Vorcha gang, the Blood Pack was transformed into a legion by

visionary krogan Battlemaster Ganar Wrang. Exiled for striking a female in anger, Wrang obsessed over

reclaiming his lost status.



Leading the Vorcha pack as a pirate crew, Wrang cultivated recruits and infamy for a decade before

incorporating his fighters as a security company across the Skyllian Verge. His notoriety ensured his

initial public offering for investors made him rich beyond most Krogan’s dreams, Wrang returned

triumphantly to his clan, rallying elders, krogan hordes, and their firepower and biotic support toward

professional violence in the Terminus Systems.



Banned from Citadel space, the Blood Pack bribes its way through spaceports into armed conflicts across

the galaxy. Priding themselves for accepting otherwise untouchable contracts, the Blood Pack rejects

bodyguarding and security in favor of cases requiring minimal oversight and maximal violence.
