United Nations Global Occult Coalition

Relations: Prospecting ally

Description
Following the disastrous events of the Seventh World War and its confluence to the second global conflict of the mundane world, the Global Occult Coalition was brought to existence from the remnants of the world's outspoken experts on anomalous science under the guidance of the United Nations' earliest iterations. Long traditions in parascience and magical arts have been preserved and improved over the decades, and funding from their primogenitor would have ensured their place at the forefront of the world's advancement, were it not for its self-destructive actions against the very anomalies on which it depends.

Structure
An Undersecretary is elected by the United Nations supra-natural entity to broker alliances between the 108 Organizations and establish ultimate policy on anomaly interaction. In turn, representatives from each member organization have open lines to the Undersecretary and each other, although feuds are common and create tension across the organization. The group receives financial, scientific, and military support from the UN.

Behavior
Most anomalies they find are destroyed with discrimination, although they possess and regularly utilize tangential and anomalous weaponry and gear. Ergo, analysis shows that internal UNGOC philosophy among its personnel is conflicted, and a balance has not been struck between their aims to protect humanity and embrace the paranatural.


The Serpent's Hand

Relations: Mutually hostile; takes a reactive stance to Insurgency affairs

Description
The para-environmentalist organization known as the Serpent's Hand is composed of anomalous entities. They see themselves as liberators of paranormal beings and are often at conflict with the GOC. Members of this organization range from the Fae, the Atlanteans, mythical and legendary creatures and other strange beings. They are very formidable and are known to utilize their anomalous properties efficiently.

The "Wanderers' Library" is a central hub for their members. Though access to it is cumbersome due to the "Ways", if an opportunity to infiltrate the Library is presented, for the sake of our agents, a single, sturdy strike is all it must take to level it for good.

Structure
Unknown, but reports indicate that they congregate at the Library, an extra-dimensional location. The organization itself is decentralized and often most do not identify themselves as members. However, they are known to take infiltrators and prisoners as slaves to tend to their library's archives.

Behavior
Members of the Hand utilize their anomalous properties freely and without restraint. Several reality benders, occultists, cryptids, wanted men, and mythological beings usually flock to the Hand for the false sense of security and value the Hand has for them.


SEPIA

Relations: Openly hostile; takes a proactive stance to Insurgency affairs

Description
SEPIA is a highly covert multinational entity operating on its directive of war against the preternatural. The organization exclusively possesses technology which erases an object's anomalous properties, effectively making it mundane. Operatives are worldwide and active. 40% of all installations have been victim to SEPIA attacks, most resulting in permanent losses to Items.

Structure
SEPIA power structure undefined. It is a widely held belief that the number of SEPIA operatives does not exceed a thousand. No attempts to infiltrate the organization are ongoing, as they have retaliated with every insertion.

Behavior
SEPIA operates under the principle that everything anomalous must not simply be destroyed, but erased of its anomalous properties. They achieve this with the use of SEPIA devices, each variant specialized in a particular preternatural aspect, i.e., human-animal hybrids, reality manipulators.

Agents of SEPIA are rare, but frequently target Items where our defenses are thin. Note that their tactics lie in a wide range of insertion/infiltration, and that attacks may take place in a matter of seconds. Reports of advanced air weaponry and orbital munitions have been collected.

A partial record on this organization's dealings with a Japan-based daemonological terror group has been made available.


Church of the Broken God

Relations: Not encountered yet; perceive as Threat Asset; report suspicions

Description
While this organization has not officially been encountered yet, it is a curious and potentially dangerous group that possesses an array of anomalous machinery and devices that they believe are fragments of an omnipotent deity. They intend to collect the supposed deity's fragments in an attempt to recreate it, believing they will obtain godhood in doing so. As such, items believed to be interests of the Church are to be specially stored.

Structure
They operate in a typical church system, but they are centered somewhere in Venice, Italy. Led by a Robert Bumaro.

Behavior
The Church aims to collect all "fragments" of their deity, and are reported to be extremely zealous and determined in attempting to retrieve them. They have displayed mental resistance to most mind-affecting details displayed by their items, and most members have cybernetic or otherwise clockwork replacements/implants on their person.

Psychotronics Division

Relations Allied

Description
A reformation of the former Soviet GRU Division-P, the Psychotronic Division in its current state is a group of independent bodies trying to restructure itself. They are presumably hostile to numerous GOIs, including the SCP Foundation, SEPIA and the GOC, and have expressed a tendency to ignore some anomalous objects.

Structure
Although they are presumably restructuring, Psychotronics Division's operations are products of a centralized, near-military chain of command. Intelligence suggests that the Division's personnel are strategically well-placed; all countries and rival organizations are believed to have at least fifteen Division agents embedded in their system.

Behavior
The Division retrieves, stores, and utilizes anomalous objects; to what end is still unknown. It has shown the tendency to ignore an anomaly (the reason for such actions is still unknown) at any given operation. Division assets are highly trained personnel and apparently follow a set of rules for engagement. Furthermore, Insurgency black ops have discovered their willingness to utilize anomalous objects. As such, the Division's goals closely match ours.


The SCP Farce

Description
The Foundation represents everything that the organisation abhors: stagnancy, corruption and pretension to being a necessary entity for mankind's future. They consider anomalies as dangerous as much as man's ancestors considered fire and lightning, choosing to contain the future of the world in secure facilities like wasteful misers. In the misguided struggle to preserve 'normalcy,' the Foundation has slaughtered hundreds of thousands, ruined nations, erased cultures, and much worse. Its suffocating influence on humanity has severely restricted Man's advancement by an estimate of █████ years since the last century. In recent years, the organization has grown significantly strong, bringing into doubt whether it will continue to simply misdirect humanity, or claim dominion over it.

Structure
Foundation sites and personnel are locally centralized around containment zones for one or multiple Item candidates. Military strength and security enforcement is well-funded. Research and development is the central concern, but its aims are short-reaching; a Foundation scientist devoted to the full potential of an anomaly risks their profession and life, but those found by the Insurgency proceed to discover marvelous technologies for the common cause.

The Foundation is ultimately overseen by the Oligarchy, an arbitrary council of entities who are directly responsible for making policies and instituting fear on a global scale. The Oligarchy has been known for concealing its true agenda from its staff, but it is well-documented that their policy of creating a 'safe, normal world' is a pretense for scientific sabotage, or a motive even more sinister.

Behavior
Any and all existing Items and Item candidates are considered by them to be the Anathema to mankind. The Foundation behaves like a swarm of insects, stripping the land of precious resources and jealously hoarding them in secret colonies. Their pervasiveness has made the world of research more dangerous. Civilians with a curious mind will be found and indoctrinated using a powerful text-based cognitohazard known internally as 'A Word From The Administrator,' yet resistance to their control is quite possible.

The Foundation sees themselves as defenders of Man's current state, not the state that it is supposed to be. They will use extreme measures to enforce this view. They have an immense arsenal of conventional armaments and anomalies, instilling their personnel with a high sense of arrogance and entitlement in their dealings with other groups. Their political clout also allows them to subvert the Earth's governments. Numerous backdoors on our part have reported that their relations with many nations has plummeted because of their hijacking of national policies.

The Insurgency, regardless, remains true to its mission statement and continues to monitor the world for Foundation crimes. A comprehensive database of their actual, insidious nature is being developed.
