OverviewEdit

The Cabal is a vast shadow government that has infiltrated several nation-states in both their governments and economies.

Much about the Cabal (so named by Raymond Reddington) is only vaguely known. The Fulcrum, a blackmail file containing the proof of the organization’s existence, dates back roughly 25 years, suggesting that it was founded long before that time, though Leonard Caul pointed out that many of the original key players are still in place. While only some members have appeared in person on the show and most of those have been Americans, the names shown on the Fulcrum names many more people of various nationalities.

The Cabal has no known single leader, but seems to be led by a committee of high-ranking members from various fields, including industry, military, politics, and espionage/intelligence, though some of the names in the Fulcrum came with titles such as "Archbishop", "Rabbi", or even "High Lama", suggesting that they have also infiltrated the clergy. The Cabal’s ultimate objectives are only vaguely known; when Peter Kotsiopulos welcomed Thomas Connolly into the organization in “Leonard Caul”, he said they “provide peace and stability”, suggesting that they have some sort of cause higher than mere profit.

The “committee” leadership structure is an advantage in that it removes the possibility of a single leader destroying the Cabal and forces the members to justify and/or question their plans before others. This places a level of restraint that controls reckless planning. It also allows a reckless member to be removed. The disadvantage is that power struggles can easily emerge when a committee member shows weakness.

LeadershipEdit

  • Fitch chose to ally with Red after the committee turned against him.
  • Kotsiopulos was facing a serious challenge from Solomon and was killed by Reddington.
  • Laurel and Red had ascended to the positions of co-leadership.
  • Laurel was murdered by Ressler and Red's power base had been weakened by Nemec's attacks.

OperationsEdit

In "Mr. Gregory Devry" Red shows Keen a map of the Cabal's operations, alliances, and enemies. Red states that the map is lacking the Cabal's new operations.
