Glass City such a clean and almost perfect city with all its shiny immaculate buildings.

If you would want to relax, go to the View. This is also known as the Ocean Glass View. This is a seaside location where you can commonly see families out on a picnic
There are three factions in Glass City. The Runners, the Conglomerate and the Black November.
A voluntary group that doesn’t want anything to do with the Conglomerate. They mostly live in the rooftops. They do courier jobs for those who can afford their services. Courier services are more efficient through them as they can race through the rooftops leaping over beams and jumping from roof to roof. They sometimes do burglary on the side and even though nobody talks about it, the Corporate Houses relies heavily on them.
The most powerful families are a part of this. They are also known as the Corporate Houses of Cascadia. There are 13 corporations that are a part of the Conglomerate. Three of which are the KrugerSec- Cascadia’s security force, Elysium- the health care researchers, and the Silvine Systems- the tech specialists. All are trying to climb up the corporate hierarchy and will do anything to be on top.
A resistance movement lead by Rebecca Thane, a prominent protest leader. They are against the authorities and often try to terrorize them. Their methods are mostly violent. To bring down the corporations they are planning to spark a revolution with its employees. The KrugerSec are always on the lookout for them.
