Alumbrados is one of the organizations that opposes the DAO. They have infiltrated DAO and are involved in many projects that the DAO works to counter.
Alumbrados have always been intrigued by duality. The dichotomies in the world fascinate them. Many in their organization wish to bring all the opposing forces in the world into one unified whole.
Senator O’Reilly and those working with him, sit on a lot of legislative committees. They funnel public money into Geo Technology and other Alumbrados companies and projects, having been active for over two decades MOst of the projects have a mystical bent and large budgets. One run by Blightman was looking into Lycanthropy. Geo Technology was founded and continues to be run by the Brotherhood of Alumbrados. The mystics are obsessed by duality - light and dark, the spiritual and the physical, the ego and the id. They’ve been experimenting on animals and humans attempting to bring the two together. Everything from pet dogs to human babies have been part of their trials. And one of the first babies they ran trials on was a boy with the surname McDire.
The contractor Beata Security is a shell company for Alumbrados. Dr. Miller, associated with the Smithsonian, had used them to install security for the Sword of Shadows display. Beata Security’s primary office. Located in a five story block wide building in downtown D.C.,
DAO Season 1
The Catskills DAO Vault is broken into. Investigation reveals Alumbrados was behind the theft of the objects as part of a plan to summon a god. The thief had the capability to use shadow for movement. Similar to, but opposite of Nova’s powers. The thief was not a member of Alumbrados.
“We know that Alumbrados was behind the theft. We also know the thief was the same one who stole the sword of shadows from the Smithsonian. We also know that he was hired by Alumbrados.” (DAO S1 C3 Sc1)
Alumbrados has been adding sleeper agents to our teams. In this last week I have discovered much (LaGrey went undercover). They plan to resurrect a very dark god, a very old god. The hope if they give the right sacrifices, they will be able to control the god. (DAO S1 C4 Sc1)
It had taken Alumbrados many years to bring all these elements together; summoning the ancient spirits, recruiting sympathetic souls, engineering his own rise into the political establishment. It all came down to today; this ceremony and to his ritual. here’s only one way to secure the global unity we seek - as you already know from that big blabbermouth Obadiah Rex, Alumbrados are now in a position to resurrect an Elder God - a being with power enough to bring nations to submission, to drag leaders and despots to their knees so that all makind will owe fealty to one supreme protector. Deities need the worship of the faithful to sustain them, and that hasn’t been the case for our Ancient deity for… well - for several millennia, frankly. In order to reanimate an Elder God, therefore, a massive transfusion of eldritch energy is required through ritual sacrifice. (DAO S1 C4 Sc1)

James (Wolfboy) McDire was part of a project - Geo Technology was founded and continues to be run by the Brotherhood of Alumbrados. The mystics are obsessed by duality - light and dark, the spiritual and the physical, the ego and the id. They’ve been experimenting on animals and humans attempting to bring the two together. Everything from pet dogs to human babies have been part of their trials. And one of the first babies they ran trials on was a boy with the surname McDire. Alumbrados altered his adrenal physiology to keep him in a perpetual state of agitation. Unless he maintains a constant mental state of calm and control, his fury will erupt in an unruly frenzy of indiscriminate violence.
Amy Healy - “Not even you, Amity Healy, are aware of our years of manipulation.” Amy looked up at him confused. “Your precious Price family heritage and what has it got you? Massive failures, one of which caused an entire species to disappear from this side of the Atlantic. And your mild-mannered doctor pose. Do you ever wonder why it doesn’t occur to you to help with the fighting? We all know you are very VERY good at it. Does Inpalan ring a bell? “
A dark, rainy Oregon night. A group of three ghouls. Amy and Noah chose to fight, waking the next day in a pile of their victims, Noah’s body casually tossed beside her. She had tried to put it behind her. She looked at Stanley her eyes going flinty.
Stanley cackled like a man losing touch with reality.
“That’s right, Alumbrados. WE BROKE YOU.”
