Rapture & Ruin
Pinkerton Detective and Caravan Service
Probably the oldest surviving organization in America, PDCS has maintained the same reputation of steadfast dependency since before The Rapture. The Pinkertons’ wealth and success stems from their dual-operation – detection and caravanning. Originally a police organization that contracted as caravan guards and private inspectors, the management decided that it would be more efficient and profitable to commandeer the most successful caravans. Today they maintain trade routes between the settlements while providing police-for-hire services within the settlements. Their reputation for effectiveness and competency remains strong, and their profits continue to soar – doubly so since they monopolized the [[:r.e.m.]] trade – the source of which is a secret they guard more closely than their money.
