It was set up as a shared division of the DMS and the Department of Floaters after the collapse of the Department of Godplayers, and was created to deal with Sues of species that are more powerful than usual — such as Eldar (Lord of the Rings), Chiss or Jedi (Star Wars), mutants (X-Men and other comic continua), or any other Sue likely to prove tricky for standard DMS agents. However, ESAS is not alone in dealing with the deluge of overpowered characters and difficult-to-manage badfics. After a few years, a portion of ESAS split off and combined with the weakening Department of Emergencies to form the Special Operations Division in Floaters, leaving the current ESAS with most of the god-mode Sue activity and the SOD with most of the special cases that ESAS would otherwise have had to handle.
The only recorded ESAS missions thus far are in Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. However, the agents of ESAS played a central role in the Les Misérables Songfic Crisis of 2006.
The office of the Strangler Fig is RC 2817, and ESAS maintains a Training Room in RC 2819 for the use of agents during their scant off-duty time (rumours of a bar and comfy couches in this room are unsubstantiated). For some reason, ESAS also administers the PPC Mongoose Shelter in RC 2816. Don't ask.
Agents of ESAS include:
Agent X is possibly a member of ESAS.
ESAS was formed in early 2004 by the Strangler Fig, who was previously a secretary in the Department of Mary Sues. Agents Aegis and Iodin were the first transfers to ESAS, followed some time later by Kern and Alagos. In late 2005, Logan and Entropy were transferred from DMS.
After the 2008 Macrovirus Epidemic, ESAS was joined by new recruit Agent Riboflavin. Over the following years, the deluge of badfic increased to the point where ESAS required additional staff, and Agents Sakimori and Kolosov were transferred in September 2010.
Missions from this division are listed on The Complete List of PPC Fiction, Department of Floaters, Eclectic Subdivision of Advanced Species.
