"And just when you think the Pingu were a problem-"
The Future loops foundation or FLF is an Time traveling Criminal Organization hailing form an Steampunkish timeline. There prefer method of Causing mayhem is by using proxies, and said proxies been know to be as big as entire empires spanning light years, though there not often that big.
The reason The foundation uses Pawn is because there own contorl of power is somewhat limited,(there about 20,000 members max). There latest pawn for world wide contorl, The Antarctican Empire. And there latest target, The sprite wars "universe"(it actullay a timeline but go figure)
