"Project Parallax had not been the only thing the Inner Circle had been involved in. There were rows of cabinets, full of files. The serpentine secret society went back a long way, always pulling strings from the shadows." - Brad Gates.
Welcome to the Official Inner Circle Thread
Who are we?
The Inner Circle is a secret society that has influence over organized crime in EvoCity. In 2001, the Inner Circle works with Brad Gates to help take down Nicole Horne and the Masir Corporation. In 2003, the Inner Circle suffers in-fighting between its members and many perish in the society's civil war. The onces who where left secretly operated in the shadows and they are slightly making their announcements now.
Similar to many secret societies in popular culture, the Inner Circle is a group of influential figures that have ties to crime, citizens, religion and other institutions of power and wealth that come together privately to further their own agendas. They are also known to use others to complete their objectives, such as using Brad Gates to kill Nicole Horne and dismantle the remnants of the Parallax project.
