Fate of the Arcano-Science War
Aspect: Pure Science, Pure Power
B.E.A.C.O.N is located in CERN. The Large Hadron Collider that CERN is famous for is one of the first products of B.E.A.C.O.N to be released to the public. B.E.A.C.O.N. released this both as a cover for the large amounts of energy and radiation given off by their other projects and experiments and because it was considered safe to release obsolete tech.
B.E.A.C.O.N. was the first of the modern Science Corps to embark on the kind of radical, and secret, research that is the hallmark of the Corps. In addition to being the leading Corp in high physics and energy technology this longevity gives the Corp a certain level of gravitas. In addition, the Corp is the most devoted to “science” as a concept, and while none of the Corp’s like magic B.E.A.C.O.N. is the most actively hostile. This is ironic, as their manipulation of raw energy often makes their science the closest to actual sorcery.
Though the European Union has recently approached B.E.A.C.O.N. about becoming state sponsored in an attempt to give the EU an answer to the US’s DHARPA they remain an independent power.
