|Origin||All Systems University|
Descended from the Special Collections Division of the All Systems University, the current generation of Collectors are divided into two factions. The purists continue in their original objective, preserve knowledge in preparation for the restoration of civilization in a new Commonwealth. They also offer assistance to others such as Captain Dylan Hunt but otherwise try to stay in the background. Over the years however, some Collectors became corrupt and began using the knowledge they were preserving to gain power. This faction eventually subverted the Restored Commonwealth government and even allied with the Abyss. This faction was slowly decimated as the Commonwealth Civil War continued and ultimately the True Collectors regained power and came to Captain Hunt's assistance once more.
