"We are the unseen, the ones that dont exist, that work in the shadows to pursue the goals of the Sisterhood. No one knows much about us, we live our lives covered, portraying characters and infiltrating ourselves like a virus does in societies, courts, nations, cults, organizations, the military and private companies. We bring them to their knees through the use of our subterfuge. We discover secrets and plans within plans. Not even the Sisterhood itself is safe. Never trust the sister next to you with your secrets because you never know if she is one of us. If I was you, I will be scared to have a dark secret, because it might not be a secret for very long. Its just a matter of time it gets to us." - Valeria Tussberg
The Invisible 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 Invisible Branch are located in the secret moon planet of Lausa although this is unknown for the other branches within the Sisterhood or outside of it. In this world, they are in charge of training new members of this women-only Order. This branch is often called "The Spies" or "the Unseen".
Its one of the Branches most feared by the rest of the members and by most people within not only the Union, but the entire Lewis Nations and beyond. They are known for being spies, and never usually wear the sisterhood colors we are so accustom to. They simply aren't seen. Their objective is to blend in, to be used in all corners of the Union and the Lewis nations to gather information for the order. Basically to obtain power for the organization and basically, they are the Secret Eyes of the order in all corners of Space.
The invisible are often unknown for many, and always insert themselves in courts, populations, or even the sisterhood itself for supervising the actions of the other branches. They are often used in times of war.
For such tasks, they are often required to follow the Path of Awakening. Typically, the Path of Awakening that they do is the Path of Dexterity, Path of the Senses and sometimes the Path of the Seer, as it fits perfectly with the policy of the Invisibles.
As their name suggests, the invisible branch does not wear any special clothing that may indicate they belong to the Sisterhood. In fact, they want to be completely invisible and unnotice. When infiltrating another organization they may wear their garments, but nothing will indicate what they are. There is only one way to know.
The sisters in order to reveal themselves to others have a unique devise, manufactured by the branch itself, which consist of a wrist-bracelet, ring, foot-bracelet or a necklace that is completely transparent to the naked eye or the touch of someone. Effetively, it makes the object "disappear". It only shows when the sister wants to at the drop of few drops of her own blood over it. This jewel has the symbol of the Invisible branch, which are two snakes entangled to each other circled by a ring of silver embedded with precious stones, one of the color of each branch (a rubi, an emerald, an amatist, a topaz, a diamond, etc....)
Functions and Powers
The invisible branch is tasked with the only function of protecting and serving the Sisterhood, the Unionist Religion and the Nation. Thus, they use their trickery to infiltrate anywere and anything they can. They have, for that purpose, been trained in the paths of the seer, the path of dexterity and the path of the senses.
They act as informats to the high circles of the Sisterhood and also to the authorities of the Union. In times of war they were used as spies in foreign lands. For that they had to go through a special program to look like a native from the country they seek to infiltrate in. However, this has led to some falling in love with the culture or the values of the country or place they were infiltrating, deserting from the Sisterhood and the Union. This has led to high procupation and sometimes they are chased down by the black sisterhood, as they can pause a threat to the national security. In other ways, they have seek protection to the lords of the Empire and work for them instead acting as double spies. Although this cases of Invisible sister leaving are rare.
