The Paragon Society
The Paragon Society was founded in 1923 by Donald Pendragon, Hephaestus D. Hix, the enigmatic Red Fedora, physician Lloyd Meriwether, and an American operative referred to as Agent Alpha. The Society was formed after the group had worked together to solve a particularly bizarre and unusual series of crimes culminating in several ritualistic murders in New York City and Centropolis (“The Crystal Phantom Incident”). Afterwards, the group agreed that while the new age of technology and progress would produce others that would take advantage of the innocent and those less fortunate, so too would it produce men (and women) of exemplary conduct, sterling character, and altruistic motivation. The group vowed to gather these individuals together into an organization that could serve as a shining example for humanity, and at the same time, help others to reach their potential. Their motto, “Pro Humanitae.”
