A loose group of merchants and mercenaries uniting under one organization to push their interests in the Citadel, they have a council of the biggest bankers, mercenary clans, and underworld bosses. Considered the people’s faction, though their true interest tends to lie in protecting their inner council as well as the last city.
If you work in the Last City, then you either worked for or have worked with a member of the Carmesi Cartel. A virus, or salvation, depending on who you talk to, that has spread its influence throughout the last city, the Cartel first sprung up just after the founding of the Citadel. No one really knows how it first got started, just that it has always been there.

The academy is an organization of scholars, philosophers, adventurers, and academics all pushing the boundaries of human knowledge. Interested in both science and that which lies just outside of science, they spend their time searching and studying anomalies, relics, and those gifted with unusual abilities. To enter the Academy is to be invited by one who is already a member, but even then one must face a series of secretive tests to become a full-fledged member that would be allowed to know its most wondrous secrets.

The Weeping Sisters are a matriarchal cult dedicated to reclaiming Old World artefacts.
They are an ancient, neutral society who were founded by the Mother. Before the world broke, she was a young woman with a vision that drove her to cross oceans.
She heads the Sisters, having taught the first generation in the ways of Old World witchcraft, shamanism, and druidic practices, regularly communing with nature and aligning themselves to the cycles of the moon.
Though they are known to services in exchange for favours, there are rumours the Sisters dabble in darker magicks: blood magic, human sacrifice, and necromancy.
