The Illusive Man is a character from the Mass Effect series and a character in EDBW. He was first revealed at the end of Killscreen V, but his influence seems to have been present in EDBW for some time.

In Mass EffectEdit

Once known as Jack Harper, but better known by his alias, The Illusive Man is the founder and leader of the human-survivalist paramilitary group Cerberus. Driven by a belief that humanity deserves a greater role in the galactic community, Cerberus acts outside the control of the Systems Alliance and the Citadel Council to advance human interests by any means necessary. Though the organization is classified by many as a terrorist organization, the Illusive Man believes that their actions are justified and will be vindicated by history.


Seemingly involved in events in EDBW stemming from at least Season 4, the first hint of the greater picture came at the end of Killscreen IV, when Monokuma was spotted talking to an unseen ally about some sort of plan for the future. This was enacted the next season in the Lockdown, when Monokuma sealed the EDBW roster inside the arena for an unknown purpose. After the lockdown was broken at Killscreen V, more was revealed - that the ally Monokuma had been working with was Commander Shepard, and they were both acting on orders from The Illusive Man himself.

The exact nature of The Illusive Man and Cerberus's plans is still largely unknown, but with Season 6 approaching its conclusion, the answers may be within reach.
