Jeanette O'Neil, President of the USA (Elected 2008 and 2012)
Paul Giordano, Vice President of the USA
Mitchell Hundred, Mayor of Metropolis
Thomas Elliot, Mayor of Bludhaven
Robert Finger, Mayor of Gotham
Amanda Waller, Director of A.R.G.U.S.
The DEO-covert organization, originally charted by the League of Nations, but operating independently and funded by unknown independent sources. Tasked with monitoring super-powered or supernatural occurrences and individuals and prevent them from becoming a potential threat to public safety or world stability.
The current head of the organization is Director Bones (and he has been in charge since at least the 1920's). Agents can be investigative or military in nature. DEO operatives may have been the origin for Men in Black and/or other operatives of that nature. Military Squads operate in nondescript black uniforms and body armor free from any insignia.
This organization as since fallen out of favor as former DEO liaison Amanda Waller led a coup to replace them with A.R.G.U.S.
- Bruno Mannheim- The unofficial ruler of Metropolis, and the crime kingpin of organised crime there. Little is known of him except his far reaching network of enforcement and influence.
- The name of Baroness Paula Von Gunther is well-known to the criminal underworld, though few have met her, and fewer actually want to. Most knowledge about her is urban legend. She's never actually been arrested nor does she have an official criminal record. What is known is that she's extremely wealthy and extremely sadistic.
- Cheetah is the name of an international thief-for-hire that goes by several aliases: Priscilla Rich, Deborah Domaine, Barbara Ann Minerva, and more. She is on an international watch-list and is pursued by Interpol. She primarily deals in diamonds and African/Middle Eastern antiquities, but she's expanded her scope in recent years. Known to be extremely dangerous, and will not hesitate to kill.
- Circe is well-known amongst the magical community for being THE Circe of Greek Mythology. She is ruthless as she is dangerous, and not one to take lightly. Her calling card is turning people into animals, though she is capable of far more.
Kane Consolidated: [/b]The parent company to the various Kane Family holdings from Kane Brothers Entertainment (established by its current President’s father and uncle in their youth) to even Mark Securities, a well known Private Military Firm used by the rich and anyone else who can afford them. They run numerous charities both local – The Safehaven Group (an association’s whose goal is to clean up Gotham and Blüdhaven) – and global with the Little Sister Foundation named in honor of the family’s personal losses. In popular culture, Kane Brothers Entertainment is perhaps their most famous holding with its countless blockbusters and hit reality shows based around Robert Kane (Robert Kane’s Intern) and his second wife (The Cougars of Jersey).
-Robert Kane: When one talks about how the Kane Family owns half of Gotham, they usually refer to the patriarch himself, Robert Kane. And though he may act like that’s true, he’s in fact the second richest man in Gotham as his family fortune is spread out among his family and ex-wives. He’s the acting CEO and President of Kane Consolidated and reality TV sensation with his own show (Intern) and catchphrase (Get Out!). Some might say he’s addicted to marriage and makes the happiest day in their lives, the day he finally signs the divorce papers. He’s a shrewd businessman – having successfully brought Kane Consolidated and its subsidiaries into the modern age – and has a larger than life personality. Yet, all that falters in the face of his family. He supports his daughter in all her endeavors and even raised his brother’s children.
Queen Industries: A massive multinational conglomerate with massive diversification founded by the Queen Family. It's possesses two notable wings.
-Arrow Tech: Arrow Tech handles weapons and defense, largely working with national contracts for applied military use.
-Sherwood Outreach: Originally began by Robert Queen shortly before his death, it is now the favored project of the new head and heir. It has been surprisingly successful, and has become rather well known for its focuses on environmental protection and economic growth in third world areas. Also deals in fair trade and low environmental impact goods.
Kane Family: One of the First Families of Gotham, the Kane Family’s size and fame has been something of a double-edged sword in recent years as tragedies and feuds seem to follow in their wake. The eldest, Robert, while an amazing businessman, has made a habit of picking the wrong kind of woman. The youngest was murdered on the streets of Gotham leaving all her holdings to her only son. And Jacob, the middle child, turned his back on both family and fortune after the loss of his sister and the suspicious death of his wife, leaving him a widower with two daughters he didn’t know how to raise on his own. The current generation is female dominated with only one male heir who stands to become the richest one of them all.
Queen Family: The first family of Star City, the Queen family is highly recognizable within their city for their sponsorship of city-run events and a brand name known all around the world. The former head of the family Robert Queen and his wife Moira died in a tragic car accident in 2012 leaving their eldest Oliver to take over the family business and look after his sister Thea.
-St Walker the Blue Lantern is well known among most cosmic travelers for helping those who find themselves lost or hurt, no matter who they are.
-The Green Lantern Corps is known throughout the universe as a force for good
