Goals & MethodsEdit
They presented themselves to the public as an elite group that was "hipper, cooler and more effective" than the King’s Men. However, they were actually barely treading water as a group, in terms of funding and membership. Too many deaths to Endbringers, even before the pace had picked up, and the merchandising wasn’t working out, with the group accepting handouts from the PRT on a regular basis.

The Suits managed different duties, classifying capes into groups for public service, fighting, intrigue, fast response and watching for malfeasance in other areas of the public. They wore costumes stylized after different card suits from the Italian and French decks – heart, club, spade, diamond, sword, wand, coin and cup. Each group has a specific focus and a hierarchy, topped by Knave, Queen and with King at the very top. 
Formed out of individuals and duos, early on hurting unit cohesion. The arrival of the Simurgh was a formative experience for the institution. The Suits received assistance and personnel from Cauldron.
In an attack in December, 2011 the leadership of the Heart, Sword, Wand and Cup were all killed or left in a state where they were unable to maintain their positions. An influx of new members with new positions unbalanced the group - introducing a number of new ideas and practices that conflicted with the old guard. The King of Spades attempted to step in and regulate the Knave of Swords' group caused a public conflict which would only further divide the Suits.
Roughly eighteen parahumans left the suits and immigrated to the US to join the Protectorate.
