The Schism Collective was once a group of great power and ingenuity. At their height of power and prestige they were both revered and feared by many different organizations and governments. Once closely tied to a great Sith Lord, they used their great skills to create tools and products of great power both efficient and devastating in design and use.
As the centuries passed, fewer and fewer records survived the pressures of time. Many organizations that were once modelled after the last truly great collective folded up and perished, their their practices and processes became the stuff of Legends. Those legends were uncovered one fateful day during the 16th year of our latest age. One wizened and tested leader came across a reference to the days of old.
That reference sparked something in Horley Cyan, that spark became an ember, that ember a flame and the re-creation of the Schism Collective was brought back into our galaxy at a time when it was needed most.
In the present, The Schism Collectove was reformed to act as a management company within the Thesme Sector. Mainly to guide the smaller organizations along their paths to greatness.
