The Resistance is a movement that was started sometime prior to the late 70s by a group of twelve former Hymn of One members, including Jonas's parents, which was dedicated to "unearthing [the Order]'s dark history and destroying its unholy practices" (We Who Fight). Many years later, when Jonas believed his parents to be dead, he and his friends began calling themselves by this term.

The Original Members

The twelve original members, Kenneth Perry Harlan, Damon Lindsey Lambien, George Thomas Kiel, Oswald Matthew Angie, Michael Byron Carruthers, Theresa Cunningham McManus, Desiree Thoreux Alcott, Christopher Raymond Nance, Susan Bethany Campbell, Joseph Carmichael Nagler, Penny Samson Rayborne, and Raymond Joseph Wharton (Jonas's Father) belonged to the Hymn of One (evidenced by their decision to renounce it in their Mission Statement) before deciding to break away and fight against it as the Resistance. In My Hand Hurts, Jonas found a scrapbook that his Aunt Alex had compiled with information about them. He learned that the members had included a human rights lawyer, an economics professor, a rabbi, an ambassador, a publishing heiress, a radio station owner, a regenerative medical specialist, and a former CIA director. He also found an article about each and every one of their deaths or disappearances under mysterious circumstances.

Notes About Members

  • Penny joined George and Raymond at a Hymn of One seminar.
  • Theresa is a member who died early on. It is implied that she joined with Carruthers during the schism.

The Schism

Lord Carruthers existed as a mole within the Resistance to gather Intel on them for the Order and break the group up from the inside. He gathered supporters by promising the more corruptible members of the group eternal life. Once he gained enough support, he was able to drive the other members into hiding. Unfortunately for the members who sided with him, Carruthers killed the "puppets" once his job was complete.

The Bunkers

The Resistance is known to have had a number of bunkers, which they used until the schism within the group, details about which can be read in The Order in the Modern Empire. At the first bunker TAAG visited, they found the following information displayed on a whiteboard, indicating what the original Resistance seemed to know about the Order at the time they were occupying it:


Mission Statement

The Mission Statement

In Going Down, Jonas found The Resistance's Mission Statement, We Who Fight, which reads as follows:

We Who Fight said:

From this moment forth, the following individuals swear to uphold the values, purposes, and ideals stipulated in the consequent mission statement. We sign below to form a RESISTANCE; a counter organization opposing THE ORDER. We are dedicated to unearthing its dark history and destroying its unholy practices. The Resistance also forms to denounce a fabricated religion, known as THE HYMN OF ONE.

Together we swear to battle a centuries old oligarchy constructed by those referred to as THE ELDERS; everlasting tyrants of oppression, corruption, and unjust power who operate in secret. With our joined efforts, these immortals shall no longer affect the social, economic, and political infrastructure of our societies for their own gain.

We fight for the greater good of an unknowing people around the globe. We fight for our integrity and their safety. We fight to expose the truth.

Raymond's Journals

Journal 1.jpg
Raymond's journal said:

Another day scouting -- 12 Hymn recruitment centers total. News that 10 are under construction.

Went with George & Penny to a seminar - listen to their rhetoric. Signed up under the guise of lost souls looking for answers; for our "eternal song." Speech lasted 1 hr - many seemed convinced of Hymn leading, leading them to path of enlightenment & control.

Convincing words, hollow gesture. Still the 26 attendees were convinced - hooked.

Clear: Hymn preys on the desperate; people who've made mistakes, need direction in their lives. Spoke to several recruits after meeting - many were escaping drugs, alcohol, etc. looking for a way out. But those addictions are replaced by this - there is no casual membership in the Hymn.

Enamored by "everlasting clarity" - one such attendee told Perry.

Raymond's journal said:

Michael and George returned from Alberta. Trip cut short when spotted by person described as "Helper." Spotted kids in Reinland Park but unable to make contact.

Intel described as "disturbing" - La Crete = medical facility functions as "customs center" for the Order. They collect, raise, and experiment on TRAIT + as they see fit.

Locals described it as "girls go in but don't come out."

Surveillance - water chamber, bloody gurney, morgue, nursery. George tried to enter - maybe help - Michael stopped him. Why? Said the facility was too secure.

Raymond's journal said:

Bloodwork headed to La Crete interrupted en route... somehow lost. George responsible for operation - all going well but Michael lost the carrier. How? Too many mistakes

Worst fears come true!! Michael has gone astray. Sabatoge. La Crete raid went wrong, Theresa's death not an accident, all of our suspicions have come to fruition. While I was away scouting the temple, Michael poisoned their ears. The group has fractured with no hope of returning to normal. Nearly a decade of fighting - for what? To be torn apart from inside?

Raymond's journal said:

How do we recover from this treachery?

All who converted are missing or dead. Those alive, we who stayed true, are scattered. Packed up our research, locked up the bunkers, and now living amongst the public. Will he come for us too?

Journal 5.jpg
Raymond's journal said:
My dear son. He is young but will learn the truth about us someday. For now we live as a normal family - one that is full of joy and laughter. All too soon he will know the horrifying truth of what life can bring. The many people of this earth are at the mercy of a secret few. But while Jonas is a mere boy, he will not be concerned with this darkness. It is our cross to bear. In youth there is obliviousness; happiness. But with age comes knowledge. Which he'll one day have to face. Until then, it is my job to make sure he is safe and confident. For it is within my son hope resides. When we are gone, he will be the last of the Resistance. As long as the Order cannot find the key, he will be safe for all time.
