The Empire Eighty-Eight are 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.
It keeps to it's original format making sure that everyone knew what they were about.
It is largely a hierarchy with people like Allfather then Kaiser at the top with various lieutenants beneath them. Ironically for a group so focused on purity they are made up of people form numerous backgrounds. This meant without the unifying influence of people 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 Organizations assets and members civilian identities. This included things like seizing children from unfit mothers.
First formed around Allfather the empire is a powerful organization that connects to several racist and white supremacist organizations around North America. It served as a gathering place for those who felt disaffected by the countries multiculturalism. Those sufficiently traumatized by such a notion eventually flocked to the banner.
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, Undersiders, Faultline’s Crew and Coil to deal with them. As part of this arrangement, the Empire spilt up for coordinated attacks with the other groups
Efforts from Coil lead to the organizations collapse.
Following Kaiser's death, the remains of Empire Eighty-Eight were split into two groups, exacerbated by Coils machinations. With the organization splintering into Hookwolf's "Fenrir's Chosen" and Purity's "The Pure".
