The Venus Contract, Chapter 1
Aquarius was formed by The Boss under unknown circumstances. It began with a handful of Scorpia traitors - as well as The Boss himself - as a small criminal organization, taking on missions that mercinaries were just too expensive and inexpierenced to complete. Eventually, they began recruiting operators of their own, seemingly preferring ex-government employees and younger men.
When Aquarius is not trying to destory Scorpia (and Scorpia not trying to destroy Aquarius) they often work together.
Aquarius prides itself in being a secret organization. The intelligence services of the world did not think it existed until very recently, when they seemed to be targeting Alex Rider.
- The Boss (leader)
- Mya Angella
- All of the operators sans The Boss and Mya Angella within Aquarius are named after fish.
- To be a "bottom-feeder" means they are the lowest level operator who often fail and get little respect.
