A secret organization which exists primarily on the Web but has also expanded to using telepathic "mail boxes." The Anarchists are an organization which attempts to foster textbook anarchy as opposed to the popular conception of. They believe in slaying tyrants and working for the overthrow of existing civilization for the purposes of creating a better one from the ashes.
The Anarchists foster free-flow of information, expose corruption, disrupt cover-ups, and call to task the corrupt no matter how highly placed they may be. They have spies everywhere and engage in all manner of illegal espionage. They justify these Big Brother-esque antics as a necessary evil. Surprisingly, they may have a point since they've prevented two genocide attempts against Nexi.
The Anarchists were founded by The Anarchitect, a world-class computer hacker blessed ability to see into the future. Whatever the case, the Anarchitect made a huge splash by releasing vast amounts of classified data across the globe before becoming involved in a number of revolutions.
Pictures of the man (or woman) have been taken but are useless since he's somehow gained the ability to make otherwise clear pictures obscure. The Anarchitect seems to possess some form of telepathic power or an associate does since no one can quite describe his features.
The exception are trusted superheroes. Mister King, Mister Arcane, and oddly Adonis maintain complete memories of the man. Whatever the case, he was still in disguise when he met them and none of them have been so inclined to share their knowledge with the authorities.
Contrary to the usual image of Anarchists as violent terrorists, the Anarchitect seems more inclined to humiliate his opponents than kill them. For example, he was crucial in the destruction of Adonis' reputation. The Anarchitect has been involved in assassination plots, however, showing he's not above getting his hands dirty.
The fact he goes to elaborate lengths to make sure these often happen in ridiculously convoluted ways as if to demonstrate his prescience also bespeaks to the fact the man with a sense of theater. For example; the assassination of a corporate polluter involved in the deaths of over a hundred people involved him being killed by a runaway speedboat...on dry land.
The Anarchitect's bemused sense of theater also applies to how he communicates with his followers. He sends puzzles out into the net as a whole with clues often left for them to decipher on their own. These often get them involved in things that are only understandable in retrospect whether it's to prevent terrorist attacks or to discover newly empowered Nexi.
Pendulum believe he's mostly harmless but ARROW and UNITED consider him a world-class threat. As a result, he is hunted continuously by agents of every major law-enforcement and espionage agency in the world. None of these have come close to catching him.
