Secret army of psi-cybernetic warrior monks
E.Y.E is a secretive and elite army of psi-cybernetic warrior monks founded, funded and ruled by a group of megacorporations named Secreta Secretorum. They become de-facto their armed branch.
After the failure of the raid against the Metastreumonic-force in the Elato forest, Secreta Secretorum introduced the E.Y.E project to create an army of warrior monks, with one major specification; the messenger's DNA was used to create a legion of 1100 soldiers. Each member of E.Y.E was also cybernetic with next-generation technology. The first aim of E.Y.E was to avert all actions of the metastreumomic will. To reach this goal, E.Y.E, along with elite soldiers of the army, launched a new raid to pacify the forest that met with rapid success.
This action had other less happy consequences. The powerful group of fanatics radicalized their action and launched reprisal action by simultaneously launching several old nuclear missiles all across the Federation. The many planets and areas that were saved owe their lives to the good work of the federal information services. The shock was terrible for the population who demanded revenge. Secreta Secretorum gave E.Y.E the responsibility of pacifying the fanatics. With Federation agreement, the cleaning operation was met with rapid success.
In the shadowEdit
Several years later after the seven-years war against the Metastreumonic-force that decimated 70% of humanity, Secreta Secretorum, taking full account of the Federation's coercive measures, decides to attempt a coup d'état. E.Y.E troops stand at the ready, rallied to win by desperation to get out from under federal rule. It's in this chaos that the creatures of the metastreumomic will reappear, launching fast and devastating attacks over all of the Federation, including New Eden.
The Federation hardened the laws prohibiting access to high-end war equipment such as the energy weapons. The whole market is in shortage. Secreta Secretorum launches its own research programs to counter it. E.Y.E is in its worst possible position. Officially, the structure no longer exists. Covertly, it takes actions through Secreta Secretorum to fight the Metastreumonic force, but the enemies of the group as well. E.Y.E is still divided into two groups, Culter Dei and Jian Shang Di which with time, become rivals and hostile one towards each other. The equipment difficulties that both groups share are undoubtedly not foreign to these tensions.
E.Y.E must also be partly financed by itself. It employs beginners wishing to integrate the structure and sends them on badly equipped missions to intercept important valuable cargoes. These warriors parade as galactic plunderers. E.Y.E, like many, knows a serious shortage in high-end military and cybernetic equipment. During this time the elite troops of E.Y.E achieve capital missions in the anti-Metastreumonic and anti-Federal fight, exterminating the threat even on the farthest colonies, recovering artefacts on inhospitable worlds, protecting civilians from besieged cities.
The co-habitation is rather well tolerated by federal authorities who take into account E.Y.E successful missions against the Force. There are sometimes even Federal Forces and the members of the organization shoulder to shoulder, defending their hearths from the mysterious enemy raids. By the Year 15 (2395 in the old era), the invasion by the Metastreumonic force increases each day, and the war against the Federation ravages whole worlds every second.
The E.Y.E is composed of two groups, the Culter Dei and their rival the Jian Shang Di, both having their own leaders and members. Brothers in the past, they are currently in the middle of an unofficial and secret struggle. By the Year 15, this struggle has calmed down because of their mutual fight against the Federation which intensified. But in the shadow, commander Rimanah plots to destabilize and destroy the Jians by weaken their power base or make them worthless in the eyes of Secreta Secretorum. He created a special task force for this goal, where the player is one of its members.
The E.Y.E headquarters is named the Temple where they have their psi-power teachers, weapon and cyber-implants dealers, archivers and technicians.
