The Empire Eighty-Eight is a gang of white supremacists based in Brockton Bay.
White supremacists who stand by those ideals. Unified in their hatred. To advance in the group, you need to grievously assault a non white.
The Empire is primarily a hierarchy, with people like Allfather then Kaiser at the top with various lieutenants beneath them. Without the unifying influence of leaders like Kaiser, they were able to be separated with sufficient pressure.
While other groups may have recruited from the same city, Kaiser recruited from other states or people came to him. Most didn't stay too long, but it made him the Brockton Bay resident with the most raw parahuman muscle.
When their identities were unveiled to the public, the justice system and by extension the PRT started going after the organization's assets and members civilian identities. This included things like seizing children from their unfit mothers.
First formed with Allfather at its head, the Empire is a powerful organization that connects to several racist and white supremacist organizations around North America. It served as a rallying point for those around the country who felt disaffected by the country's multiculturalism.
A junior member of the Empire killed a heroine and made his bones that way.
Following Bakuda's bombing spree, the Empire made a truce with the Merchants, the Undersiders, Faultline’s Crew and Coil to deal with her. As part of this arrangement, the Empire split up for coordinated attacks with the other groups.
After the dissolution of the Azn Bad Boys, Coil made his move on the Empire, releasing the civilian identities of every single cape in the Empire to the public. This would set off a chain of events that would eventually lead to the Empire's collapse.
