The Blacken Syndicate
A revolutionary group created by Landon Blaken after his parents were killed by the Actionia military for protesting against Ozzal's unjust laws. The Syndicate consists of a menagerie of people (mainly AD board members) who share a similar hatred for Ozzal and the corrupt Actionia government. It is assumed that their eventual goal is the overthrow of Ozzal and the creation of a fairer government. Now, if only they could get their act together. Oh, and according to a chapter by mgangel, they disguise themselves in Mardi Gras outfits, but this has yet to actually happen in a chapter....
