History

 

In the 2010s, the nation of Ireland, thanks to European Unionization and trade disputes, became a second rate country, causing economic upheaval and massive unemployment.  The people attempted to rebel on several occasions as a result of that, only to be told by their government and the European Union (EU) to stand down, to which they reluctantly did - until HE showed up: The Taoiseach.

 

This mysterious Irishman (whom to this day hasn't once stated his real name) over the last several years, has built up a massive army of Irish followers, influencing them to help their fellow Irish and to stand against the control and oppression that Great Britain and the EU are said to have 'gutted' Ireland with. With the growing dissolution of basic things such as food, housing and money, coupled with a boiling anger against existing authority, the 'Taoiseach' started a small uprising. This uprising, however, was different; this uprising had access to not only machine guns and small arms, but tanks, missile launchers and most unique of all...killer robots.

 

The Taoiseach, using powers he doesn't publicly talk about, is an 'influencer'; a person who has the ability to twist, bend or manipulate a mind's thought processes to align with his (Taoiseach's) own.  He does this without effort and as a result can take a disillusions crown of people and easily turn them into an active rioting mob if he so chooses to do so. As such he has also manipulated the minds of several powerful super-powered and/or highly skilled Irish individuals that are now putting their powers and skills to work as part of Taoiseach's new "Eire Arm" or Irish Army. His new Eire Arm is primarily made up of disillusioned, angry young Irish men and women, as well as ex-Irish Republic Army (IRA) fighters and backed by an unknown, yet wealthy contributor capable of moving black market weapons and munitions without the rest of the world seeing it.

From 2015 to 2018, the Eire Arm acted more like terrorists than freedom fighters. They attacked English businesses in Ireland, stole money from British banks in Ireland and raided several warehouses and shipping docks, stealing millions in Pounds of food and supplies. Some of these things found their way back to the poor of Ireland, but not even a fraction of that which the Eire Arm stole or took from the British.  Still, the Irish citizenry were delighted by the Eire Arm, calling them freedom fighters and liberators.  As their popularity grew, so did the Eire Arm's ranks and number of raids and attacks.

 

​Finally, on 25 May 2018 at Killeen, Ireland, Taoiseach and the Eire Arm set up a massive ambush disguised as a simple raid. An English Duties Station on the Irish border was attacked by a dozen Eire Arm troops, resulting in the planned killing of several British workers there. In response, a band of European heroes called the Commonwealth, showed up to quell the situation. After Taoiseach sprung the trap on the Commonwealth's superheroes, pitting the Eire Arm's new super-powered, magical and highly skilled specialists against them, several Commonwealth superheroes were severely injured and hospitalized, leaving the Eire Arm without a single casualty.  It was a massive victory for the Eire Arm and a wake-up call for the rest of the world.

 

The Eire Arm was now considered a super-powered terrorist organization.

 

In a strange turn of events, the Commonwealth's British diplomatic attaches were told by the Commonwealth's heroes that they (The Commonwealth super-team) would no longer enact against the citizens of Ireland nor against those 'protecting' them, including the Eire Arm. As such, the Commonwealth, even against the Queen of England's demands, refused to be involved in any conflict in Ireland and unanimously voted to only involve themselves in Ireland should only Ireland itself request the Commonwealth's aid in any Irish humanitarian or natural disaster relief efforts, thus negating any military or political actions against the Eire Arm or the Irish nation. For Taoiseach, this was a massive victory for the Eire Arm, thus ensuring the only local superhero team that could potentially defeat the Eire Arm was not longer a direct threat to his plans.  Ireland's government, as it stood, were soon forced to have Taoiseach be allowed a voice in the Irish government much to the chagrin of Great Britain and the United Kingdom. Since then, Taoiseach has published his own "Taoiseach Manifesto" stating in detail about the rot of government and world influence on Ireland and the necessary ascendancy of the Irish people to become a new world power, of course, under Taoiseach's leadership.

 

Today, the Taoiseach is the leader of the Eire Arm and has a seat in the Irish government's Parliament, even though the Taoiseach will only attend the meetings of Parliament via video chat systems and never in person. He is a cold, calculating man with an even temper and disposition.  He is calm and rarely gets rattled.  If things go VERY bad for him, he is known to 'shoot the messenger', but then follow up with an dignified, formal and calm response or plan of action. He listens to his advisors, however, he is quick to tell them that fear is not an excuse for inaction.  He cites the stories and quotes of famous Irish leaders, military men and poets, and enjoys the company of women, who seemingly throw themselves at him, almost every night. On several occasions, Taoiseach has 'disappeared' from his room or location, appearing from somewhere else (sometimes half a world away) days later. It is believed he has access to some form of powerful teleportation portal, however, no one has ever seen him use one or talk about one.

Taoiseach has a 'running contract' with the international mercenary guild called "Death Legion", opting to use them on occasion to take out any threats. He also has ties to Oceania, but no one knows to what degree. He obviously has ties to CANIS and its underground black market system, however, he's also been seen with the Maritime Marauders, who seem to also help with the Eire Arm's port and pier raids.

Thanks to Taoiseach, the Eire Arm has established itself across a 100 square miles region of  Ireland and Northern Ireland making himself Ireland's new rebel leader and the leader of Ireland's freedom fighters; freedom fighters that, to this day, still have yet to help any more than 4-5% of the poor, starving and/or downtrodden people of Ireland.

What is Taoiseach's master plan? Who IS this unnamed person and how long will it be before the nation's people makes him Ireland's true 'Taoiseach'?
