The Strange Worlds
To the world at large, the Estate is a philanthropic institute interested in funding research in several scientific fields of inquiry. While that’s partly true (the facade works because the Estate does award scientific grants to various deserving causes on a yearly basis), the Estate’s actual goal is to protect the Earth—and all of its life forms— from all threats to its existence from the Strange. As one of only a handful of organizations cognizant of the dark energy network, the Estate is uniquely positioned to deal with the threats the Strange represents.
The Estate was founded in memory of Carter Strange. Known as Carter Morrison on Earth, he saved Earth and created Ardeyn. Exactly how Morrison saved the planet is one of the Estate’s most closely guarded secrets. It’s possible that most of the lead operatives or chief investigators don’t even know the whole story.
