    Example text

    Without assumed identities, all the Chrysalis Corporation would need is a few digital photographs and a Tager’s life would be blown wide open. When someone becomes a part of the Society, the Administrative Network gets to work on creating a new identity for that person. Those who are a part of the support networks have the least to worry about, but even they get fake ID’s. The hackers that are a part of the Administrative Network enter the new identity into key New Earth Government agencies and create a false electronic trail of the new identity.

    Many within the Society are those that once worked for the Chrysalis Corporation. Most of the company’s employees are blissfully unaware of what is truly going on and are capable of going on with their lives without concern. However, some discover the hidden nature of the corporation as they rise through the ranks or accidentally run across it in their normal course of work. Some leave of their own volition, keeping what they’ve found to themselves. Sometimes, they say the right thing at the right time and someone from the Eldritch Society is there to give them a cause.

    In fact, most are not. Like any kind of hunting, there is much looking for prey and few exciting moments of actual confrontation. This does not change the value of the activity, however. Tager patrols are responsible for the thinning of the Dhohanoid population of any city, a service not to be underestimated. There is most often quiet competition between packs in a city, keeping track of the hunting tolls. Those that are part of the Society don’t get a lot of downtime. When on a mission, the only downtime a person gets is by accident, when there is a natural lull in the action.
