Majestic 12 (M12)
Founded by top secret order of President Truman at the behest of Secretary of Defense James Forrestal in 1948 to develop weaponization and defenses against “Teslatech” covertly acquired by the FBI after Nikola Tesla’s death in 1943. M12 enjoyed a functionally unlimited budget with little if any oversight for over 60 years.The organization is so secret its own agents aren’t aware of its full scope, true leadership, or ultimate goals. Its operating structure consists of an unknown number of independent cells that receive orders from a distant home office. M12’s efforts are often little understood at the squad level, but missions routinely involve seamless coordination between multiple cells, indicating a high level of organization at its higher echelons.For all its secrecy, M12 often works in the open. To the outside world, they appear to be ordinary (if highly specialized) soldiers dutifully acting in an official capacity. When dealing with other government agencies, M12 operatives always have the “right” codes, access permissions, or signatures to trump any other agency’s jurisdiction. Armored transports carrying highly armed soldiers are the go-to M12 modus operandi. These may be backed up by attack helicopters as determined by intelligence. Particularly dangerous assignments will employ a handful of experimental exoskeletal suits.
