The Taught refers to the collection of people Teacher has gathered around himself.
Modus operandi Edit
The group operates purely behind the scenes, slowly building up power. Teacher recruits civilians and grants them minor abilities using his power, at the expense of their free will.
Scapegoat offsets this, by using his power to mitigate the brainwashing aspect, however, if they screw up or act out, their free will will be taken from them.
The group constantly constructs multi-step plans with long delayed payoffs that might better be called contingencies.
The structure is largely authoritarian top-down construction, focused on ensuring that Teacher's goals are met.
PRT Response Edit
The PRT were very aware of the threat that the group possessed. Teacher speculates that the PRT fabricated evidence just to put him in the Birdcage.
The group was gathered by Teacher after he gained his powers.
At the start of the story, the entirety of Cell block T was made up of his group.
Subsumed Trickster into its ranks.
Teacher's Group cut off an Earth in order to work and build. Though this was later shown to be part of a greater plan to take parts of Dragon.
A squad of Teacher's pupils seized the area that and an Endbringer appeared, throwing out the challengers already situated there. The Endbringer was made available to Cauldron along with two Group members, in exchange for Cauldron's protection.
Much of the groups equipment and several members were taken by a Goddess.
The Undersiders set the groups plan back by several years.
Teacher attempts to take over the parahuman prison, sending in drugged food that makes those who consume it resistant to Goddess' ability. Lung, the Pharmacist, Blindside, and Kingdom Come were also sent in at the groups behest.
Post-Time Bubble PopEdit
Teacher's Cauldron were revealed to have been subtly planting cyber attacks that would frame people, and ruin relationships within the heroic teams.
They were working with higher up members of Earth Cheit.
After the prolonged battle in the Cauldron Compound the organization was scattered by heroes yet again, with leaders retreating to Earth Cheit and the majority of thralls being left into The Wardens hands.
