Background

The Zodiac Agency was established to provide security to corporations and private individuals who did not trust the authorities and especially uberhumans. It has since widened its approach to include security work, retrieval work and even its own in-house experimental work such as when the Agency kidnapped Olympians during the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in an attempt to activate the ubergene in its test subjects. The Agency is well respected amongst its former employers and operates in simultaneous operations across North America, Western Europe and most recently in Australia. While it works for employers in most cases, the Zodiac Agency is also interested in its own pursuits.

A variety of mercenaries and special agents work for the Zodiac Agency. While they come from different backgrounds all agents share a distrust for uberhumans which is the foundation of the Agency. This distrust is based on either a pre-existing belief or a reaction to the indoctrination process organised by the Astrologer.

Zodiac agents work in a variety of areas and capacities. They are capable of low-key assignments as well as anti-Uber response teams in which case they will don the Zodiac Battle Armour. The Agency has built its reputation on its 'pure human' agents and its ability to provide a security force equivalent to the power level of most ubers.

Personality

Generally the agents work for Zodiac because of the financial rewards, the thrill of espionage and security work, or perhaps because of a deep seated hatred for uberhumans. Each agent has their own reasons for joining the agency, although personal agendas are frowned upon.

Quote

"It's nothing personal, just business."

Powers

Zodiac has developed an array of high technology devices and weapon systems, the most impressive of which are the Zodiac Energy Pistol and the Battle Armour. Each agent has access to these items, as well as conventional arms.

Appearance

Zodiac agents come from a variety of backgrounds, but all wear a standard Zodiac uniform which is composed of a hardy body armour. The uniform is black with white trimming and a constellation on the left breast, depending on the agent's group. There are always twelve active groups in the agency, named after the twelve star signs of the Zodiac.

The Zodiac Battle Armour is a heavier power armour which enhances the wearer's strength and provides even more defence against all kinds of weaponry: human and uber. It is composed of reflective metal plates over a thicker black armour. The Armour includes a visored helmet which hides the wearer's identity.
