Prophet Five

Prophet Five

The Shed is a fictional criminal operation in the television series "Alias". The leader of the Shed was initially Gordon Dean, and later Kelly Peyton, though both ultimately answered to a larger group: Prophet Five. Prophet Five served as an Illuminati-like conspiracy group in the fifth season of "Alias". The headquarters of Prophet Five was in Barcelona, Spain, with known Shed satellite offices in Prague, Cleveland, Seattle, Chicago and St. Louis.

History and Objectives

Prophet Five was started sometime during the 1970's by Oskar Mueller as a project funded by a private foundation. Parts of the project were compartmentalized, but it is known that the "best and the brightest" mathemeticians, linguists, scientists, and cryptologists, including James Lehman and the father of André Michaux, were recruited to decrypt a section of a 15th century manuscript known as the "Profeta Cinque" (Fifth Prophet) which was written in apparently unbreakable code. They succeeded, and discovered that the manuscript referenced proteins, nucleotides and amino acids - advanced genetics apparently ahead of its time. Lehman and Michaux assumed they were being tested, and presented their findings to a committee. The project was shut down and they were sent back to their everyday lives. Meanwhile, Renée Rienne's father, Luc Goursaud, was involved in another part of the project, as a test subject for clinical trials administered by Doctor Aldo Desantis. He was paid an impressive amount of money. It is unknown what he was tested for, but it is known that thirty years later, Desantis emerged from a cryogenic chamber looking identical to Renée's father. It is likely that Prophet Five experimented on Renée's father to develop experimental genetic doubling techniques, possibly based on Lehman and Michaux's findings from the manuscript. Renée's father somehow discovered something about the experiments that disturbed him, and he fled with his daughter across Europe, only to be taken away by Desantis. Renée witnessed this and swore revenge. A few weeks after Lehman and Michaux were told the project was shut down, Michaux contacted Lehman. He had begun to notice that those who had worked on the project were starting to die in mysterious accidents. He said he was changing his name and going into hiding (as Bill Vaughn) and urged Lehman to do the same. According to Irina Derevko, most assumed Prophet Five to be a myth. But around the time of the events occurring in Sovogda, word got around that they had gone active once again. Their endgame was once again in reach. Known as the Horizon, the information for finding it lay with old SD-6 files. Prophet Five kidnapped and hypnotized Sydney Bristow, who had once seen a flowchart of SD-6. Sydney gave them fake coordinates, but her mother Irina tricked her into taking them to the real location of the Horizon, a safety deposit box in Vancouver. Irina betrayed Prophet Five and disappeared with the Horizon. Prophet Five's endgame also revolved around 15th century prophet Milo Rambaldi, specifically his interest in Sydney, whom Rambaldi refers to as his "Chosen One." Ultimately, Prophet Five's endgame remains a mystery, as the Twelve were slaughtered by Kelly Peyton on Sloane's orders. Since Irina and Sloane were apparently after immortality, it may be assumed the Twelve were after the secret as well.Fact|date=January 2008

tructure and Organization

Prophet Five was led by a group of twelve, remarkably similar to the Alliance. In addition, the Shed operated similarly to SD-6, with most agents believing they were part of a black ops division of the CIA. Members have ties to British MI6, Russian SVR, French Intelligence, the Centers for Disease Control, pharmaceutical companies, and even the CIA. Prophet Five also had some connection with the government of North Korea, as Doctor Desantis was transported to a North Korean military facility after escaping Renée Rienne. Members of the Twelve controlled entire sectors of technology, finance, and defense.
