"We are the ones in charge of creating, mantaining, substaining, researching and destroying, the skeleton and the fabrics of modern society. Wonderful structures and technologies lie in our hands. We are the ones who made those things posible. We design them and we build them. Things that seemed imposible or came out of our own imagination and dreams see the light and come into existence. Those things that used to be a shadow become ingrained things of our daily lifes. Technology that you use, and structures were you stand or inhabit have the work of the Browns behind it." - Jana Kolbanik
The Brown Branch is one of the 12 Branches of the Sisterhood of Kryso, an Order native to the Union, one of the Lewis Nations. It's Sisterhood headquarters as a whole are located in Kryso, but those of the Brown Branch are located in the Planet Senekar. In this world, they are in charge of training new members of this women-only Order. This branch is often called "the Builders" or "the Technocrats".
This Branch focus itself in Technology, Computing/Informatics, Creation and Building: either Architecture or Engineering. working to make great long lasting structures to last for millennia as a testimony of human might for eternity and future generations to use. Its main goal is to save what humanity has accomplished for the Universe to see in case the race goes extinct, goes into more primitive stages of civilization or is swallowed by a foreign power. Nevertheless it is also their duty to save that information for future generations of Humans.
They are known for being great experts and for studying in many fields, specially of the fields of computing and advance informatives as well as building in general. This includes the branches of Engineering, Architecture, Computer Sciences, Megarchitercture, Nanotechnology, Naval Design, Cybernetics, Mathematical Design, Material resistance and innovation, Hacking, and other similar sciences/fields.
The Browns are often employed for supervising constructions and high scale work as they verse in megastructures and technology. They are often used in Rings and Stations or in other key areas of society related to technology.
The Brown, as it name indicates, take their name after the robes they use which tend to be grand brown robes. These are divided in two, one light brown other darker brown. Lighter brown is used for High-Tech profesional, Hackers, Nanotechnocrats, and those that work with technology and Computing in general. The Darker Browns, work in the fields of Architecture and Engineering, basically in anything that means creation and building. In case of necesity, they were long strips of brown laces attached to their wrists in case they cant wear their brownish robes, to indicate their membership to the Sisterhood of Kryso and their belonging to the Brown Branch.
Functions and Powers
They can gain a high decree of power within the Union. They maximize the use of technology and have adapted the Parasyte "gifts" to be engrained with the Technology that theycreate. Some even can only be used by those having a parasite, so is the degree of design of such technology. However, their real power comes from their massive control of Computing and Informatics, Nanotech and many crucial fields. On the other side, the browns have crucial power in areas were they are needed to substain artificial structures.
They are divided in two subclasses:
One of the most crucial, they are in charge of computing, informatics, nanotechnology, microships etc... they base themselves in the study and progress of technology. This is a bit rare compare with the policy of the Union which is usually less keen on extremely technological advances, like artificial intelligence, android life or technological enhancements of the body. The Technocrats however are very necessary to mantain the technology and increase the advancement of the nation. They focus on research and mantainance of all the Informatics. They even have creating a data-ark for saving all the knowledge from deterioration.
Those in charge of building and mantaining structures. They usually are employed for orbital stations, megastructructures and other complicated Engineering and Architectural wonders. Both of these are the fields of expertise of the Builders and focus on their advancement, study etc... for former generations.
The Powers of the Psychokinetic mind are very much less used in this branch than in others. The Builders however tend to have a much more use of it than the Technocrats. The use of it focusing on creation, levitation and researching purposes for both branches.
