Manus Populi operated best in the shadows - in a world where the anomalous was still unknown, and no major organizations had risen up to contain them. A world with no GWU, no Sunnybrook, no Sanctum, no public awareness. They wanted a world where they could direct humanity, and be the ones to control the anomalous on their own terms, be seen as saviors by the persecuted. In a ritual nearly a year in the making, they succeeded - a world-spanning wave, a ripple in reality, taking many of their members to this new world they wanted… with some unforeseen side effects. The ripple also caused many individuals from the other reality to swap places with their counterparts in ours if they existed, and shunted others from one to the other where there was no counterpart. Most of the Manus Populi members were in the eye of the storm, letting them travel one way without another version of them, if it existed, being forced to our side. Very little of the organization is believed to remain in this world, and that's just how they want it - a feint to make others think they're completely gone, while those few remainders build up again. For what better way to manipulate the world than if the world thinks you no longer exist?
