Hey y'all, good to be back, it's been a while. Long story.
Hers's something that occurred to me a few minutes ago, just out of the blue: who administers the Class A Amnesiacs? Who operates in foreign states like Iran? Who gathers intelligence not like a detective or investigator, but a covert operative? Someone has to monitor radio transmissions in the field, quietly deal with cover-ups and assassinations of opposing factions, SCPs, and what have you. To draw a more direct analogy, does the Foundation have its version of the CIA? (Though perhaps KGB is a more appropriate agency… heh.)
What I do remember:
- Mobile Task Forces handle combat and paramilitary operations.
- The administrative staff includes doctors, accountants, cooks, what have you… they are easily grouped together in terms of tasks, being within Foundation borders and unconcerned with secrecy aside from nondisclosure.
- Agents are investigators. First and foremost when something goes awry, you send an Agent in; they are the most familiar with the SCPs they capture and remain an authority on them until research surpasses their knowledge.
- Class Ds are cannon fodder.
- O5 personnel are the ruling council.
- When in doubt, see if you can kill 682 with it.
Are agents also culled from intelligence agencies, like DIA, Mossad, FSB? Are they gathered from law enforcers' ranks and subsequently trained? If so, who trains them? Did I miss something along the way, and if so, is there a method by which I can quickly be brought up to speed?
