Men of EdenEdit
- Main article: Men of Eden''
Self-proclaimed men of "Eden", this organization's main goal is to control the universe with the use of the ADAM core. As the Steinway family has been known to guard the gateway to Eden, where the ADAM core resides, the Men of Eden corrupts the goodness of the family. In order to obtain the core, the Men of Eden brainwashed Admiral Steinway into working with them, where they then were able to overcome the Steinway family and steal away the gate, in turn that they give the Steinway family power over many nations.
Children of Eden (also known as VICISS)Edit
- Main article: Children of Eden''
The experimental group consisted of stillborn children, and children who died at a young age, all from different backgrounds. There had been over 1,000 dead bodies of children taken in for the EVE project, where each body was inserted with the Vicissitude souls. The bodies ranged from newborns to 11 year old children. The Vicissitude souls were drifting wisps that roamed around Eden. The children of Eden were different from regular Vicissitudes because they were Vicissitudes in human bodies.
Of the 1,000 children, only 400 of them were able to control the chaos of the Vicissitude gene, the rest of them fell into madness and became full Vicissitudes, where they then were thrown into the deepest chambers of the Eden facility and slowly bred throughout the years to be used as experiments and opponents for the children to use in training.
The intention of creating the Children of Eden was to breed a mass army that followed under Eve, who was to be the ultimate human weapon that controlled the ADAM Core.

The many major families in the world are listed below. The clans do not necessarily mean that members of each family are blood related, but are instead simply members of their designated group. The only members of the clan who are blood related are the pure-blooded leading members. Eve and Eric, for example, are members of the Steinway family, however, while neither are purebred, they are "selected" into the family(so they can carry their own surname, yet also carries the Steinway name). The same concept goes with all other families, as they are designed similar to the mafia hierarchy.

The Steinway family is a small clan of German nobles. They were seen as weak due to their good nature, and often ridiculed as the least important German family of nobles. However, it was because of their lesser status that the ADAM core chose them to govern his domain, knowing that they would not have the thought or power to abuse him. Their job as the gate keepers was to keep everything from going in and out of the gateway, including Vicissitudes, Vicissitude Souls, and anyone who seeks power from the ADAM Core. Notable members of the Steinway family include Train Steinway, Admiral Steinway, Eric Waters, Eve Steinway, Luca Blotsky, and Lillie Steinway.
