The Facility, being headquartered on the Eastern coast of Usono, suffered from serious difficulties maintaining its control over the West and Midwest portions of the nation. In response to this, the Society was formed to function as a central post of Facility authority in the Midwest. Based in Location City, this sub-faction would be a fully autonomous splinter of the Facility proper and uphold the Facility's order as it saw fit.
The Beast of Wabel Woods
An unknown member of the Society was assigned to investigate the Wabel Woods during a series of anomalous events that occurred there. Having detected mysterious radio signals, a member of the Supernatural Law Enforcement Patrol was sent to scope the area and discover the potential source of these signals.
The Society believed that this was a low-danger anomaly and would quickly be resolved, but the death of the agent assigned to the case led to a major investigation that exhausted a large amount of Society resources. They would waste their next year researching the Wabel Woods.
The Society incident
Unfortunately, the leader of the Society, Uncle Ted, had his own plans in mind. Using his authority as the secret leader of the Society behind the front of a pizza parlor owner, Ted committed a series of child murders for an unknown, vile, supernatural purpose.
Thanks to the Facility's decision to allow the Society full autonomy, along with the amount of agents being dispatched to the Woods, nearly everyone was left blissfully unaware as Ted corrupted the Society into a murder cult from the inside out.
After the disappearance of Ted, the Society's veneer collapsed and the Facility discovered the full extent of its crimes. A full cover-up was executed by the Facility, the Society was formally disbanded, and the Facility resumed full centralized operations of all nationwide Facility actions.
All complicit with the Society's despicable actions were arrested and punished, but it is possible that some members of the core cult have escaped to continue their mysterious deeds. It may never be known if the Society was ever fully wiped out.
