TRUE TALES OF THE ILLUMINATI - An Audio drama about conspiracies gone wrong
An intrigue-obsessed low-level manager in the Illuminati, Rebecca is an idealist who believes that the Illuminati have given her the skills and experience necessary to do her job well, and that doing that job will guarantee humanity's best possible future. She is wrong.
Beck covers the damage that this cognitive dissonance causes to her psych by being deeply perfectionistic and endlessly enthusiastic about her job.
Rebecca's chief rival, Dal loves working for the Illuminati, primarily because it conveniently hands her a paycheck for doing what she already loves: killing. When working for the Illuminati doesn't involve killing, Dalilah often struggles to stay on task. And like any distracted employee, she tries to bring the part of her job that she enjoys into the rest of her work. Prone to fits of futile anger, Dal is her own worst enemy. And also Beck's worst enemy. And everyone else's worst enemy.
A privileged young intern in the Illuminati, scrappy and eager to please. Jackie wants to figure herself out a name for herself away from the influence of her mother, who got her this job in the first place.
THE SWORD OF THE ILLUMINATI, OF THE COUNCIL OF THIRTEEN, HEAD ARCHON OF WARFARE
The head of the military arm of the illuminati, The Sword wields supreme military might the way that you might organize a book club (ruthless but polite). As Jackie’s mother, she wants Jackie to stop this childish posturing and learn that violence is the best way to do things.
Jackie's friend/confidant/bodyguard/goon. Kidnapped into the Illuminati as a freakishly huge baby, this enormous, sweet man lives in his own world, striving to act according to his own peculiar, even baffling way of seeing the world--perhaps as a way to cope with the evils he has to commit daily.
S1 IMHOTEP / S2 Von Braun
Polymath, inventor, madman. All of these could describe Imhotep. The architect of the pyramids, he is incredibly smart and easily bored. The kind of man that would try anything once and immediately either master it or lose interest. Doesn’t ask a lot of personal questions because he doesn’t care about the answers.
The Chief is a mid-level manager in the illuminati. A no-nonsense bureaucrat steeped in the Illuminati's weird culture, the Chief is content to let his underlings run their projects as they see fit, mostly because he has better things to do, like paint still lives of his cutlery.
