I have a couple days off to work up some ideas, I have a few Raider concepts in storage I may attempt to finalize. I’m inclined to psycho-abusers.
OVERTURE // The Agenda was a blueprint for the 21st century. It was the plan to inventory and control all land, water, minerals, plants, animals, construction, means of production, information, energy, and human beings in the world. The Agenda was implemented by the Council of International Relations (CIR) in the year 2001. It was the official response to synthetic climate change caused by planetary pollution. However, climate change was only the public lightning rod with which special interests were able to introduce the Agenda to the public. The governments from all around the world that were present at the executive summit legally agreed to the plan for controlling the way people live, eat, learn, move, and communicate. All of this was masked by the noble banner of saving the planet from destructive climate change.
In reality, the Agenda outlined the justification for a centralized world government. It was a comprehensive framework for extreme environmentalism, social engineering, global political control, and groundwork for the development of Artificial Intelligence. The Agenda sailed under the pretense of ‘sustainable development for mankind’. The phrase means little more than ‘population control’. It was the systematic program for de-population, enslavement, habitational control, social distribution of common wealth, and complete deconstruction of national integrity. The Agenda exalted the wealth and living standards of a select few within the upper echelons of society. Everyone else became the subjects of technological and totalitarian control. Over the course of fifty years since the Agenda’s inception, people around the world have been relocated to designated urban regions where they are effectively prisoners unless they have the assets to choose their fate.
The Agenda was fully realized in 2050. Everything is under mass-surveillance. The state sanctioned corporations control all aspects of production and consumerism. All information is relentlessly premeditated and censored. Privacy is a forgotten memory within the residential regions. Freedom of expression has since long been removed from legislative protection. Individualism and independence is actively countered and discouraged. A Central Operating System connects and controls all aspects of technological life, which is pervasive. Medical science is obsessed with throttling senescence. Technological science is obsessed with Augmentations. A Social Credit System segregates the masses.
The presence of this oppressive system has inspired some citizens to vigilantism. Its activity has been sporadic over the past twenty years, but has lately surged into the public view again. The actions are conducted by brave men and women that take measures into their own hands by breaking and manipulating the system in favor of the people. They spread the truth about government and corporate corruption through digital intrusions and physical activism. They help the poor and exposed by commandeering supplies, storages, and housing. They free the wrongfully persecuted and imprisoned. Alas, immorality runs much deeper. Evidence of a cabalistic elite present in hidden organizations and councils occasionally surface by various means. Their roots appear to reach further than what anyone would ever have suspected. Rumors of sacrificial rituals, pedophilia, medical experiments, and other vile practices circle hidden communications of the Darknet. Many of these implications are too much for some to stomach, which is why they eventually vanish.
The vigilante that revolutionized the practice was a man named Jonathan Grimm. He created a decentralized operating system for smartphones capable of running custom applications. The system was titled ‘Ghost’ and was released onto the Darknet in 2034. Various users have modified and maintained the operating system ever since. Jonathan Grimm was also the creator of a botnet titled ‘Reaper’. In 2037, he released the Command and Control application for it. Various hackers around the world began to infect the Central Operating System in their region with backdoors linked to the botnet. This gave all those running the Ghost OS and Reaper App access to all systems controlled by the Central Operating System in the region. The number of vigilantes exploded. The term ‘hacktivist’ assumed a whole new meaning. The government has combated this development with various updates and protection measures, but the anonymous mass of the Darknet are quick to respond.
≱ The Central Operating System (ctOS) is a computer system designed to manage the infrastructure of a city. The system is a complex interconnection of electronic systems such as computer servers, sensors, and databases that interact to manage a city-wide infrastructure. Many systems such as subway lines, traffic lights, surveillance cameras, electricity grids, internet access, and communications are connected and controlled by the Central Operating System. Unfortunately, the system is also the core weakness of a city. It can be illegally accessed through various means and used as a weapon against the city and its inhabitants. The legislative control of the Central Operating System lies with the governing body of a city. However, many tech corporations are heavily invested in the system for the purpose of handling consumer data and user information. There are many hidden details within the fine prints of legal documents concerning the relation between governing body, investors, and users of the Central Operating System.
≱ Systems controlled by the Central Operating System (ctOS) include but are not limited to: subway lines, server farms, sensors and alarms, databases, traffic lights, surveillance cameras, facial recognition software, electricity grids, internet access, communication towers, road blockers, gas and sewage lines, ventilation, automated bridges, power transformers, vehicle computers, security turrets and drones, broadcast connections, citizen security profiles, citizen welfare profiles, citizenship profiles, universal income profiles, gun ownership profiles, debt and criminal profiles, consumer habit profiles, user data storages, cloud storages, cellphone connections and remote access, Social Credit System (SCS) profiles.
≱ The city employs communitarian policies. All citizens are subjects of welfare, food stamps, housing subsidies, and various handouts that puts them in a vulnerable position of control. Any financial upward mobility is severely crippled by regulations. City approved rations are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) provided by major agriculture corporations. The food is modified to boost specific chemicals that promote docile behavior in human bodies. Moreover, history prior to the Central Operating System is altered in all stages of education. Independent thought is actively discouraged by state approved educators. Boys are subjected to invasive feminization procedures in order to demolish traces of masculinity and promote gentle obedience. Facts that are deemed inappropriate and offensive are heavily scrutinized and censored in all forms of media and education. Pointing out inconsistencies in evidence or arguments, hypocrisy, or corruption will lead to social punishment, fines, or incarceration.
≱ A Social Credit System (SCS) monitors, rates, and regulates the financial, social, moral, and political behavior of all citizens via punishments and rewards. Citizens with high scores get to enjoy special privileges, while those with low scores are treated as second-class citizens. High scores can lead to: priority for school admissions and employment; easier access to cash loans and consumer credit; deposit-free transportation hire; free exercise facilities; cheaper public transport; shorter waiting times for healthcare; fast-track promotions; queue jumping for public housing; and tax breaks. Low scores and punishments can lead to: denial of licenses, permits, and access to certain social services; exclusion from booking transportation; less access to credit; restricted access to public services; ineligibility for government jobs; no access to private schools; public shaming through exposure either online or on screens in public spaces with names, photos, and ID numbers of blacklisted citizens; phone dial tones mandated by authorities that inform people that they are calling a dishonest debtor.
≱ Energy consumption quotas regulate how much each individual can maintain themselves. The city employs total surveillance of electricity, water, and food allocation. Private vehicle ownership is included in the quota and penalized with additional taxation. All public transit is monitored with facial recognition software and third-party security contractors. All manner of self-reliance has been banned. People are not allowed to own woodstoves, rainwater collection, home gardening, or any other equipment or means that eliminates dependency on city regulations.
≱ Throttling the natural aging process is an obsession. Advanced blood transfusion and harvesting of Adrenochrome is at the forefront of popular medical science. Major pharmaceutical corporations retail serums that can be injected as an aesthetic treatment. The success of the effect depends largely on genetically predisposed factors—some people see great results, whereas others do not. However, premium versions of the serums are only available to the upper echelons of society. The premium serums are produced with much more taboo methods in order to maintain the purity of the adrenochrome ingredient. Absolute purity of adrenochrome can only be obtained from infant and preadolescent humans suffering extreme emotional duress at the time of death. Retail serums obtain its adrenochrome ingredient from voluntary blood transfusions at the cost of diminished purity. The adrenochrome of retail serums hold a 70% purity, whereas premium serums hold a 99% purity. Premium serums are officially labeled as a conspiracy theory.

The world is a barren land of destitute-grey, bereft of life, morality, kindness and hope that has long been spent into the dregs of forlorn youth. Reality has worn cruelly amongst lithesome shoulders, burdening soul and heart and weighted visibly against sallow skin wherein blossoms of violet reign beside scarlet lashes. Hooded gazes of pale miseries and pouted lips quivering against bone and blood. The years unkind, the years unloving and her mind a whispering haze of a fearful unknown. Time has wept into a torrent of crimson inquires and harsh revelations, spelling into the single moniker that haunts upon the listing tones bound within her head, and the sense of direction that compells her treads to lead into wavering distances of sand and snow. For so long she has drifted with rattling chains of unending pursuit eerily orchestrating her death for every day she continues to draw breath.
Evelina -- the only name she has ever known, aside from a whimsical quip of Eve -- has forever been lost upon the world that propels forward upon leagues of vast conspiracy and control. A haunting lilt sputtering from chapped lips that dispells her name and the loss of not knowing who she is or where she even comes from. If there are parents or family to claim her, she knows not, and countless propositions to SCS offices have been fruitless despite their unbound coffers of knowledge to every person that applies through their system. Evelina, for all the purposes of The Agenda, doesn't even exist.
Her hopeless wanders and wavering steps of life have landed her upon unsavory circumstances in seeking solace and comfort where none is usually had. Naivety colours her heart and soul, bathing such within innocence against a rigid score of life and living, lost betwixt those that would use her for personal gain of flesh and others seeking her valuable youth. Evelina has been thrown to the darkness, her soul suspended for the feasting of wolves and her sense of self shredded mercilessly. Her lack of memory created a dissociated exterior until dark, curling whispers slunk against her mind and muttered of vast space and a reckoning of the stars. Suddenly, she was being watched, followed, visions of men and apparitions of a woman shuttering beyond her gaze and beckoning from somewhere on high.
For the past five years, Evelina has been consumed with such an unknown sense of dread and fear. Acute paranoia now plagues her heart, shuddering and quivering upon every sound within the dark and witnessing death in faces of shadow that should be invisible to the mortal eye. What is she, an eternal query that now plagues her mind, spurned on by mysterious whispers and haunting phrases, her sudden journey now to seek further refuge in a world that does not acknowledge her existence. Untold figures lurk within the gloom, slinking upon light and dark, sccurying closer, uttering horrid secrets upon the wind of scarlet beasts. Evelina has been on the run for so long, drifting now aimlessly, never knowing rest, never knowing was it means to be safe.
