The Clockwork Convention's source of power comes from the hypertech devices and enhancements they've created as they press themselves to perfect human-machine matrices to create cybernetic perfection. They specialize in innovation, hyperefficiency, mass production, organic/mechanical integration and statistical prediction. Both agents and researchers are expected to maximize their performance and sacrifice themselves when required for the good of the Convention. The lower ranks are heavily Socially Conditioned and treated no better than tools, being offered greater free will, independence, upgrades, and enhancements as part of the promotions they might earn through completing assignments successfully.
Iteration X recruiters seek out good candidates among UnAwakened soldiers, scientists, mathematicians, academics, and even people with disabilities who are good candidates for Enlightment- and Enhancement.
