Who We Are
The private research fellowship known as the Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow was founded in late 2005 to tap the myriad powers of "mad" science. The Evil Geniuses come from many fields - biology, chemistry, physics, robotics and more - but are united in the noble cause of improving humanity's future... whether society accepts these gifts or not.
The "Evil" Geniuses proudly and mockingly claim the label laid upon them by a fearful mob incited by those with the most to gain by maintaining the status quo - politicians, corporations, churches, and the media, all trying to keep their place at the public trough. Many important discoveries were made by those practicing "forbidden" and "impious" arts; Galileo was tried as a heretic, and studies of anatomy once required grave-robbing. Today, vital research in fields such as cloning and nanotechnology still chafes under restrictions imposed by the ignorant and superstitious.
What We Do
The Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow offer shelter, security, support, and - perhaps most importantly - the understanding of one's true peers. Scientists and Technologists of all kinds are welcome. They also provide refuge to orphaned creations and former experimental subjects, now abandoned and alone in a hostile world.
The fellowship makes few demands on its members, allowing them to conduct their own researches and contribute to the group as they see fit. The atmosphere is informal, without the usual power struggles found in both academia and the private sector.
Where We Live
The Evil Geniuses have a small but well-equipped facility in Aeon City. A fully-stocked infirmary doubles as a shared laboratory space. The workshop contains storage racks and a secure vault for salvaged items, two work tables, a cyclotron, and an interocitor. An ultra-high-speed Internet connection supplements the physical library, which includes the complete run of Mad Science Quarterly and other journals. Teleporters provide quick access to all of the Rogue Isles. Of course, the facility has its own back-up generator (in case of any problems with the Cap au Diable power system) and supercomputer. The control room also includes a conference table and holoprojector that members use for lunch meetings, presentations, and delivering ultimatums.
Because we can.
Because the world needs our help.
And... for SCIENCE!
