Hover to magnify | Septimal Moon - the government - has been oppressing its people for decades, prioritising those with written fates in the form of "true names" over those without such fates. Those that are in the know are amassing in retaliation. Will you join the other side of the fray? Or will you side with the superior? Interested? Register your OOC account!

Only sacrifice kismets may be part of the Septimal Moon council, this is due to Septimal Moon regarding Fighters as servants - those who take orders.

Law presides over rules citizens must abide by. Law enforcement and the courts, security and criminal investigation, emergency services (e.g. firefighting), social security, and politics fall under this branch.
Military is in charge of the capital’s overall military force and special task forces. Military invades & retrieves resources from other areas, as well as patrol the gates of the capital. They deploy enforcement strategies Law is not permitted to under special circumstances.
Research develops various technologies in the scientific world, and is in charge of medical and scientific facilities. They are most known for their developement Zeroes (artificial kismets). One of their biggest, current projects is developing a vaccine for the illness outbreak.
Intelligence gathers and distributes data. They work well hand-in-hand with nearly all divisions. Cyber forensics and security, hackers, espionage, programming, AI development, Internet maintenance, et cetera, are but few career paths under Intelligence.
Industry takes care of the economical/commerce side of the capital. They deal with finances, marketing, audits, hardware technologies, agriculture, material/resource distribution, as well as social services.
Infrastructure keeps the capital’s heart beating. They’re in charge constructing and maintaining the power supplies (water, electricity, heat) as well as the roads and buildings. They work well with Industry and sometimes Information.
Arts is responsible for maintaining entertainment facilities and content, such as museums, opera houses, bookstores, and more. It is their responsibility to censor and alter inappropriate content in entertainment media.

RANKS

The Full Moon is the head councilman, meaning he or she presides over the others. After that, all but the New Moon are equals in terms of authority yet may not assume the same level of authority in another moon's division; only the Full Moon can do such. The New Moon phase is technically not part of the council, but rather serves the council (if fighter) and/or can be an apprentice of the council (if sacrifice). The New Moon takes care of the dirty work behind the scenes by legal or illegal methods. Fighters aren't allowed in certain areas of Septimal Moon HQ, however.

GOALS

To have Kismets live and prosper in a safe, clean, and orderly environment - free from "Ordinary" oppression. To quell anything that gets in their way of providing such for their people. To expand their knowledge and achieve greater heights in medicine and technology.

Information
Info Broker

Extortion generally deals with the more aggressive aspects of Betelgeuse, from enforcing their “laws” to sniping enemies off. If Information is considered the brains of the group, then extortion is considered the brawns. They hit hard and fast.
Drugs dabbles in all kinds of natural and chemical substances, from recreational to medicinal. They support their comrades by disabling their enemies and healing their allies, though some bleeding hearts devote themselves to their work and not to their group.
Armoury designs and creates various technology such as (but not limited to) weaponry, armour, and day-to-day equipment. They plan to advance even further. With their resources and expertise, they serve as Betelgeuse’s armour and shield.
Information can be considered as the brains of the group; they gather and disperse information to change the tides of war, and help strategise the rest of the group in and out of missions. Some are planted in the capital as seeds, but most remain in the Outskirts.

CHEMISTRY

Betelgeuse was once a traditional mafia. Over the years, they had become the backbone and system to the Outskirts. Now, with more reason to take up arms against the Capital, they resemble a terrorist group more.

Even though the kingpins are all equal in authority, the extortion and information kingpins seem to have the greater favour among the common people. They're the louder, more prominent divisions that aim to incite a riot. However, not every kingpin nor individual holds the same goals or views. While they try to remain unified, their foundations are cracking...

GOALS

Betelgeuse goals vary greatly, though a good amount can agree on one thing: things need to change. It has been nearly 50 years since the outskirts have been quarantined, and 30 years since they've been deemed "safe," and yet here they are: still suffering, still on the other side of the wall. Some don't like the oppression toward ordinaries and fighters. Some just want to live without worry of how they'll get water and food every single day. Some want to be taken in by the capital, some want the capital to fix the outskirts, some want to become autonomous from the capital, and so on...

Members of Betelgeuse take on the identities of a tarot card that suits them as a person, often using a mask that represents their identity while on the job for the sake of anonymity. Capital law enforcements and other entities often refer to these masked beings by the number of their card rather than the card’s name to make it more ambiguous as to what they’re talking about (e.g. “we came across someone with a grim mask. We believe it could be either 12, 13, or 15,” 12 being Hanged Man, 13 being Death, and 15 being Devil). Kingpins and officers may be any tarot card.

For the sake of OOC purposes, there can only be one of a tarot card in use at any given time (so only one devil, one temperance). Please refer to the claims list to see which is taken. When all tarots are taken, we’ll expand on the theme.
