There are unfortunately just a few too many missing-person reports and almost-sanitized crime scenes to allow the Order to dismiss Consolidation as being a government-horror urban legend – or a garbled account of OV activities. Consolidation exists independently, and it represents an ongoing problem. The group must be shut down as quickly as possible.
Consolidation exists, simply put, to kill human beings with psychic abilities before they can be corrupted into becoming Esoterrorists. Their regular method is to detect – somehow – a target with budding psychic powers; once they have found one, a member of Consolidation will approach the target and offer to train the new psychic in his new abilities. The target is then brought into what appears to be an accepting and warm community of mystic explorers and visionaries, hiding out of sight from the mundane world ‘until the time is right.’
