Se você for embora eu vou fingir que não me importo, vou te deixar ir sem pedir para ficar, nenhuma lágrima irá caí na sua frente, vou agir como se eu não ligasse pro que está acontecendo, vou me despedir de você como se nada tivesse acontecido. Prometo não olhar para trás, não terei recaídas quando eu ouvir algo que seja relacionado à você, serei forte como um touro, dura na queda quando ouvi nossa canção. Vou olhar suas fotos e ouvir seus áudios como quem não sente saudades, não vou mais deitar a cabeça no travesseiro e te imaginar comigo, não irei mais te procurar entre as pessoas, esquecerei o teu cheiro, ele passará a ser irreconhecível para mim. Pois é meu bem, quem sabe eu não pensando dessa forma, um dia te apago de mim, só não sei quando isso vai acontecer, talvez daqui um mês, um ano ou quem sabe nunca.
Ela só queria que você percebesse o quanto doeu ter que te dizer adeus,Priscila M.
Since it seems that most people here on Tumblr only
played the Adam-centric games of the series, I decided to write a
little post about the Illuminati, its structure and key-members. This
post is more like a little overview for you guys, since HR/MD
only offer little info about them, and I won’t go very
deep into detail. (Edit to myself: I lied.)
Officially, the Illumanti were founded by Adam
Weishaupt in 1776, his goal was to create a new society, a “New
Order” that is lead byindividuals that are called “The
Enlightened” (Illuminati is the plural of the Latin word
Illuminatus, meaning “enlightened”). This might be a
reference to either Plato’s concept of the “Just State”, a
society that is ruled by all knowing “Philosopher Kings” who were
born to full-fill this rule and reign over the others. Another
possible reference might be Thomas Hobbes’ theory of the Leviathan,
a state that is ruled by a chosen “Sovereign” that can be either
a single individual or a group of people acting as one where the rest
of the citizens have no rights.
Those Individuals are defined as perfect beings,
ahead of the rest of humanity and are in harmony with mind and body.
To achieve this, there are certain requirements to be chosen as
a suitable initiate, and every member has to go through certain ranks
involving taking certain classes and undergoing tests. There is not
much known about this besides the few references Stanton Dowd makes
in Deus Ex 1, saying Bob Page never made it past the rank of “Master
of Tyre” since did not participate in mandatory yoga lessons. In
additions to this he mentions a special form of meditation that
should lift the spirit and mind to a higher level.
Furthermore, although the official foundation is
dated to 1776, many patters and structures can be traced back to the
Knight Templar during the Crusades (also stated by Dowd). So over the
time, the Illuminati also “adopted” several other
orders/organizations to their cause, utilizing them for special
tasks. Besides the Templars, who function as the Order’s financial
arm since they control most of the banks around the world, they
also incorporated Majestic 12 in 1969, after the USAF closed
down Project Blue Book and the organization was shut down as well.
Since then, MJ12 operates as the Illumianti’s scientific and
In general, you can say that the Illuminati don’t
know any restrictions when it comes to achieving their goal, they are
all about control, but ultimately they do one thing: They influence,
they direct, they never act out directly and they think in very long
term plans. They have boxes stacked into boxes, a machinery that
works for them while keeping the puppet-masters in the shadows. They
are not just a group of “evil rich people wanting to dominate
the world”, they do not just simply beat up or kill people just
because they want to. Everything they do is for the greater cause,
and they don’t like loose ends. When someone is in their way, they
make sure to completely destroy this person forever. Either through
assassination (and they don’t back off from killing members of the
Order for “The Greater Plan” as they wanted to assassinate
Taggart to further fuel the Anti-Aug Debate) or through complete
destruction of one’s existence. They would never just leave
a “warning” or harm someone out of fun or cruelty. The
Illuminati are, in their core, completely finalistic and dedicated to
Now, after the fundamentals are clear, let’s take a
short look at the members of the Council of Five, the ruling top with
the highest ranked members of the order. The Philosophers Kings or
the Sovereigns, if you want to see them that way.
Lucius DeBeers is the head of the Order, the only
with the highest rank, the “Supreme Enlightened”. His
background and true age are unknown since he keeps himself
artificially alive, but it’s known he was already in charge back in
the 1960s, as he ordered the assassination of John F. Kennedy in
1963. So pretty much everything we know about the actions of the
Illuminati can be traced back to him. It’s clear that he seems to
be obsessed with power, he refuses to give up his position as leader
to his protége Morgan Everett and seeks a way to achieve immortality.
He seems himself as the perfect being Weishaupt was talking about. In
2052, he is in a somewhat frozen state to halt his ageing, but he is
still kept conscious to able to advice Everett who assumed the
position of the Leader after Lucius was put into this state.
Morgan Everett is the Second-In-Command and leader of
Majestic 12. It is implied that he was born into the Illuminati, as
he states he had close ties to the Templars in his childhood,
saying “I once knelt in this chapel for communion, with two
Rockefellers and a Rothschild. Since the time of the Crusades every
leader in finance has prayed for the continued stability of Templar
banks, founded on gold.”. During the events of Human
Revolution and Mankind Divided, he is the CEO of the Picus Group, and
thereby controlling the world’s media and news. He did not found
it, it was Sir Martin Darrow (Hugh Darrow’s father) in 1985 - it
is unknown how Everett got into this position and what happened to
Martin. Furthermore, Everett is in charge of various AI projects
involving E.L.I.Z.A. and Morpheus (referred to as “M Initiative”
in HR & MD) together with his protégé Bob Page to control
and monitor the public. In 2052, he took up the position as the
Supreme Enlightened and controls the remnants of the Order after MJ12
nearly destroyed them during the 2030s. Although he is the acting
leader, he keeps his former mentor in a state that allows him to
still give advice and actively lying about the fact that Lucius could
“be brought back to live” and using him as a tool. It is assumed
that Morgan grew bitter about Lucius withholding him the possibility
of becoming the Supreme Enlightened and now abuses his power over
Stanton Dowd is the leader of the Knights Templar in
2029 and in control of most of the Illuminati’s finances and the
world’s banks and therefore putting financial pressure on opposing
parties. Although the Templar’s base is located in Paris, it is
stated that Dowd is unable to leave New York City due to unknown
reasons. According to Deus Ex 1, he was also born into the Order as
his family had ties for generations. Little is known about the man,
but it’s implied that he is a rather traditional man since he is
the only one ever talking about the existing ranks and rituals and around the events of Mankind Divided, he led the Templar to a
very powerful and controlling position. This concerns Beth DuClare
who states she had to leave her home-town Paris because “Dowd’s
Templar minions are the reason I stay away from Paris these days. I
smell them on everything when I go back to the château. They act
like they own the city.” (quote from Black
Light) and leading to the suspicion Dowd might try to overthrow
Lucius and take over himself. In 2052 Stanton is a poor man
after MJ12 taking over the Knight Templars and destroying his
finances and he is infected with the Grey Death. Besides his
knowledge, he has nothing and is forced into hiding - powerless and
Elizabeth DuClare, often only called “Beth”,
is millionaire philanthropist and leader of the World Health
Organization in 2027 and 2029. Just like the previous members she was
born into a very old and wealthy family tied to the Illuminati. This
is why she claims it was her birthright to be “Queen of this
World.” And again, little is known about the woman besides her
public role. In 2027 she controls the distribution of the manipulated
TYM chip that would later cause the Aug Incident, and in 2029 she
works with DeBeers on several projects. Among them: Black Helix and
The D Project. Her exact position/rank is unknown, but it is implied
in Black Light that she might be the “true”
Second-in-Command since she has a very close relationship with
DeBeers and because of their collaborations. In addition to this
it is implied that she is a highly skilled manipulator, especially
regarding men, and it is implied she uses sex and “love” to
achieve her goals. The groomed the carrier of Philip Riley
Mead, Florida’s Governor in 2027 and future President of the United
States (2052), has a confirmed sexual relationship with Morgan
Everett, is rumoured to be the mistress of the President of France
Alain Bourges-Maunoury and talks derogatory about emotions like
love and affection. She was assassinated by Majestic 12 prior to the
events of Deus Ex 1. She has a daughter named Nicolette DuClare
whose father is unknown and it is suspected that Nicolette is in fact a cosmetically altered clone.
There is little to say about Volkard Rand, since he
is only appears in Mankind Divided and the only thing we know about
him is that he is a member of the Council of Five in 2029 and that he
puts pressure on the UN council to pass the Human Restoration act. A
very popular fan-theory sees him as the elusive Janus, leader of the
Juggernaut Collective that was somewhat confirmed by the “Prima
Game Guide” by accident. But this is all speculation.
Robert “Bob” Page is not directly a member
of Council of Five during the events of HR and MD, but has a high
enough position to participate in most of their meetings. He is the
protégé of Morgan Everett, who recruited him at some point before
2016 and due to his influence the young man managed to have an
unusual career and rise up faster than he should (stated by Stanton
Dowd). Page is the CEO of VersaLife (founded 1975), a pharmaceutical
giant he acquired in 2016 and a subordinate to his company Page
Industries, a venture capital/tech firm. He is the second leader of
MJ12 alongside his mentor and is in charge of the Tyrants in Human
Revolution (Codename Black, also referred to as “Commander”
in The Fall) and overthrows the Illuminati during the 2030s in a Coup d'état, and takes over completely. In 2052, he is the richest
and most powerful man in the world while still having an extremely
positive public image, as people see him as generous, a
philanthropist and he pretends to donate to good causes. He tries to
become the “true Supreme Enlightened” by merging with the AI
All of these character summaries are kept short and
only mention the most important things, there is much more to tell
but this should be enough to give a general overview about the canon
information regarding the Illuminati. If you got any questions of
wish that I got deeper into certain things, please let me know.
