- Important People
It is unknown how long the Vanguard has existed, but evidence of its presence within history spans across many eras. Due to the secretive nature of the organization it is hard to prove, but many rumors state that the Vanguard is not limited to the Realm of Allura, but many other realms and dimensions across the universe, especially throughout history.
How the Vanguard came to existence within the Realm of Allura is also unknown, but since the introduction of Axcom Industries into the Realm of Allura, the Vanguard are notably more relevant to the many civilizations and factions around the worlds in which they reside. The Vanguard are now a group respected and feared by many, usually in equal distribution.
The structure of Vanguard membership is even more mysterious than the initiation process itself. Rumors of its structure range from a leadership council to a leading extended bloodline to a single anonymous individual. No facts exist to anyone outside the Vanguard.
Diplomacy for the Vanguard is purely built on politics and business. The Vanguard are only diplomatic with other groups if it is of benefit to themselves. On conclusion of diplomatic meetings the individuals acting on behalf of the Vanguard are never seen again.
There are undoubtedly many important people within the Vanguard or else it simply wouldn't exist and be so successful after such a long period of time. Individuals within the Vanguard no doubt hold political and leading positions around the areas they reside. It should also be considered that members of the Vanguard probably have considerable actual power that usually would be considered unnatural to others, therefore giving them an added 'edge'.
Anything important and relevant to the worlds they reside in seem to the fundamental backbone of the Vanguard, since for them knowledge is power, because with power you can obtain anything. The Vanguard are not only rumored to have seats of leadership, but a big position in economics, engineering and exploration.
