The Eisa Business Syndicate—which was broken up a few years ago at NS’s behest for violating made-up rules—is back, and operating under the auspices of the Eisa Chamber of Commerce. The Syndicate is primarily interested in protecting independent companies from monopolistic predation by NS, and mostly represents merchants who are neither extremely rich nor extremely poor. Most Syndicate supporters will either be business owners or the employees of Syndicate-affiliated businesses. There is some evidence that the Syndicate may partially be funded by one of NS’s competitors, Chung-Li Heavy Industries, but no conclusive evidence has ever made it back to NS-affiliated ears—alive.
It is not currently known who, if anyone, is in charge of the Syndicate.
