Essentially the Illuminati on board the Iliad-07. On the surface they are a collective bargaining group for the professional actors who were recruited by the wealthier patrons of the Iliad-07. Underneath... they are still a collective bargaining group for the professional actors. They just love making people think they are up to spooky things. And secret handshakes, cryptic symbols, and projecting a general air of "we know what you are up to."
