The Federation started to form with elite members of The Conglomerate who met with the nobles of The Thoroks and master cultists from the Disciples of Cataclysm.
They are considered a richer and more educated DAO, pursuing finesse and elegance in all they do.
This doesn't mean that all they seek is vanity. All the contrary, their nobleness allows them to view the balance of Mothora in a more neutral way than the Shadow Council or the Eclipse Horizon, valuing elements like the afterlife and what's beyond Mothora.
In fact, most of their research efforts go towards how to enable eternal life, how to replicate themselves, and allow their consciousness to exist forever. They are fascinated by order, design, and what's beyond Mothora, more than any other DAO. Their power, lies in the strength of numbers.
