It was founded in the wake of the Red Court's destruction and Harry Dresden's death. Known leaders are: Gentleman Marcone, Karrin Murphy and Lara Raith.(reference needed) Other members are Will Borden, Molly Carpenter, Waldo Butters, Marci, Daniel Carpenter, Father Forthill, Andi Macklin, Abby.(reference needed)
It is headquartered out of a secure compound—called the Brighter Future Society—built expensively on top of Harry's old apartment, presumably to take advantages of the lingering effects of Dresden's residence as well as the defences the Leanansidhe put in place to guard it from the Nevernever.
It was founded by Karrin Murphy soon after Dresden's death with funding provided by Marcone. Things had gotten so bad, even the straights, normal people, have noticed. They are taking an active stance to defend Chicago.
Using the Paranet, the Ordo Lebes, Saint Mary of the Angels Church, the White Court, the Alphas, and various other groups and resources, they've dealt with the Fomor and other threats that have appeared in Chicago.
In the seriesEdit
Daniel Carpenter demanded that Murphy "Bring forth the Swords" in front of Felicia Raith, a White Court vampire letting her know that Murphy has possession of them. Murphy beat Felicia when she threatened to expose the Swords unless Karrin let Felicia feed off her.
Murphy let him know how the Red Court's demise caused a power vacuum that the Fomor have tried to fill. It's become very dangerous though Chicago still holds out against them while other cities have not.
She also filled him in on Molly Carpenter's new persona, the Ragged Lady, in her attempt to protect the city from supernatural bad guys by scaring them and making them believe a White Council wizard is in town. William Borden is scared of her.
