S.H.I.E.L.D.

Overview

"The principle S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded upon was pure: protection. One word. Sometimes to protect one man against himself, other times to protect the planet against an alien invasion from another universe but the belief that drives us all is the same, whether it's one man, or all mankind."

SHIELD is an organization that always seems more than what it presents. While mainly an espionage agency, they are also a leader in cutting edge military technology. Many people join SHIELD not only to spy, but to become top researchers.

As an agency, they are incredibly secretive and very serious about leaks. Though a member of the US Government, they also work across the globe in a capacity similar to the CIA.

History

The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division, better known by its acronym S.H.I.E.L.D., is an American extra-governmental military counter-terrorism and intelligence agency, tasked with maintaining both national and global security. Founded in the wake of the Allied victory over the Axis powers and HYDRA in World War II, S.H.I.E.L.D. was organized to protect the United States from all possible threats.

In 1948, to replace the SSR, SHIELD was formed by Howard Stark, Chester Phillips and Peggy Carter. Since then, they have been at the forefront of protecting the United States as well as the rest of the world from internal threats of unknown nature as well as looking toward the possibility of extraterrestrial problems.

Currently, the Director Nick Fury has kept a steady hand on the steering of SHIELD. However, after the invasion of New York and the current Registration law, there are rumblings of discord within the organization. Many declare those as rumors, but the agency is clearly starting a new phase with its current role in the metahuman debate.

Despite the politics, many of those in the know think of SHIELD as the best defense most people have barely heard about.

How to Join

SHIELD has an extensive research and development program. They are always looking for pioneering scientists that are hoping to help both the United States and the world at large.

Within their folds is also W.A.N.D. - a division that focuses on research and control of dangerous magics.

Not only that, they are - at the core - an espionage agency. They are spies and intelligence gatherers for (what they deem is) the good of the world.
