French Groups of Interest

The Foundation’s french branch also has to face rival Groups of Interest, whose activities are mainly (but not entirely) focused in the french-speaking regions of the globe. In order to grant every researcher access to all available document regarding said Groups, this page should be constantly updated, as the Foundation gathers more data.

The Order of Light

Disclaimer: Due to a reworking of this Group of Interest, the following description is to be considered outdated. It will be updated when the new hub is posted. Thank you.


Overview: The Order of Light is undoubtedly the oldest Group of Interest known to the Foundation. Founded in 1224, it is a direct descendant of the Knights Templar, created by Hugues de Payens in the 12th century, with the purpose of keeping objects and/or entities showing anomalous behavior hidden, or try and use them for military purposes. The existence of this branch of the order was kept hidden by its own members until its downfall in 1305, in as of today, unclear circumstances.

When the whole order was dissolved by the Pope, the remaining Templars affiliated to this particular branch gathered, in order to allow the rebirth of the Order of Light and to designate their successors. Despite numerous speculations regarding them, this organization always managed to dissimulate its actions to the world, and to subsist until today. At this moment, the Order’s HQ is believed to be located in France, constantly exchanging information with an unknown number of contacts in the East, using the intermediary action of “attendants”. The extraction of valuable resources, such as oil and gems, assures colossal revenues to the Order, which has a number of sleeping agents infiltrated at every level of society, all of whom are adepts, dedicated body and soul to the organization.

This organization counts among its members, especially in the highest ranks of the chain of command, individuals suspected to be SCP themselves. Their capture, in order to assess the gravity of the threat posed by such individuals, is considered an Alpha Priority.

The Order of Light has never showed any intention to cooperate with the Foundation, nor to be hostile towards us, even if this does not exclude possible conflicts of interest. Every individual believed to be a member of said group must be reported to O5 command and should be carefully observed by MTF Omega-1, aka “Odour of Sanctity”.

The SCP objects held and/or used by this Group of Interest should be treated with the utmost caution.

Society of Atheist for the Protection from the Perilous and Hindering Institutionalized Religions Everywhere (SAPPHIRE)

Overview: The Society of Atheists for the Protection from the Perilous and Hindering Institutionalized Religions Everywhere, more commonly known under its acronym SAPPHIRE, is a group of extremist assertoric atheists, largely present in Europe. Its adherents are, for the most part, members of the scientific community, belonging to an international network which is difficult to discern. These people recognize SCP objects (which they call “Singularities”) as a threat to scientific thinking and rationalism, thus encouraging superstition and religious obscurantism. Their policy varies between the systematic destruction of SCP objects and their use as weapons to perpetrate acts of terrorism against religions, global or more aimed to certain objectives.

SAPPHIRE’s attacks mainly involve large masses of civilians, without any attempt at discretion; this obliges the Foundation to deploy extreme dissimulation protocols after every strike. Mobile Task Force Omega-5 "The Jewellers" has been created with the specific purpose of tracking, preventing or, in case of failure, camouflaging their attacks.

SAPPHIRE is in constant conflict with any and all forms of cult, may they be normal or paranormal. Having numerous contacts in the scientific world, some Foundation researchers have been discovered as undercover affiliates of the group. Even if SAPPHIRE generally respects the Foundation and its objectives, the group disproves of the Foundations conservation policy in regards of the SCP objects, and some spies have already been captured after having tried to destroy or otherwise recover contained SCPs for their own personal interests.

Each and every undercover agent of SAPPHIRE must be reported, captured and interrogated regarding the inner workings of the Society and their future attacks.

Les Gentilshommes Humanistes

Overview: The Gentilshommes Humanistes ("Humanist Gentlemen"), commonly referred to as "Gentilshommes", take roots in a humanist organization of the second half of the 18th century, created by Jean-Baptiste Ravin de Courville and the Baron d'Holbach. The aim of this organization has always been to improve human condition through abnormality and to reach the ideal of the "Better Man". The Gentilshommes indeed see abnormality as a natural process to which mankind has to get used to, and thus form the "Neo-Enlightenment" movement. The Gentilshommes Humanistes are currently present in Western Europe, but mostly in France.

The Gentilshommes strongly denounce the destruction of SCP objects, as well as the containment of harmless anomalies, in addition to their fight for the "fundamental rights" of anomalous individuals. The Gentilshommes' activities mostly revolve around research and creation of anomalies that could improve human condition. Mobile Task Force Tau-3 "The King's Regiment" was created in order to fight efficiently against these anomalies and to arrest their creators.

Nevertheless, the Gentilshommes are very discreet on the anomalous international scene — even though they seem extremely active on the underground anomalous stage — and gathering intelligence on the way their organization works proved to be difficult. The Gentilshommes are not hostile to the Foundation, and have shown respect towards its achievements, but claim to be "ideologically irreconcilable". Moreover, they have successfully infiltrated the French Branch on several occasions, but always by convincing one of its employees to work with them.

Any individual suspected to be part of or to work with the Gentilshommes is to be apprehend for further interrogation.
