It claims to promote purely human interests to give Humanity it's "Rightful" place in the galaxy. Also termed a Human Supremacist organisation. Is infamous for terrorism on a galactic scale against all non-humans as well as for unethical scientific experiments and dangerous research.
Cerberus supports the principle that any methods of advancing humanity's ascension are entirely justified, including illegal or dangerous experimentation, terrorist activities, sabotage and assassination. Cerberus operatives accept that these methods are brutal, but believe history will vindicate them.
Cerberus is one of the many enemies the player will face when playing the first and third games in the Mass Effect series. Curiously, they aid the player in the second game.
This organistaion maintains it's secrecy through a number of fronts, including political parties, aerospace industries, electronics corporations, charitable interests, etc. to cover up it's more questionable activities. Is believed to be enormously well-funded, normally through these front corporations as well as from wealthy human benefactors sympathetic to it's ideals.
They are easily recognizable by their white-yellow-black armour and uniforms, as well as their diamond-like logo.
