  • Name: Marion Network
  • Type: Media
  • Subfactions: Channel 99
  • Headquarters: N◎VA, Chuo Ward

MarionNet is Tokyo N◎VA's largest news organization. They span all forms of media, from television to newspapers to magazines to the TRON Net, and get the latest happenings out there as fast as possible. Along with the Hermes Network and Chihaya's CNN, they're one of the most famous networks in the world.

MarionNet's organizational structure is segmented according to job functions, ensuring a maximum of coverage and mobility. Instead of limiting themselves to one form of media, their specialists on each subject gather news wherever they find it. Other departments in the organization audit reporting to ensure it's level and free of bias. This doesn't stop those from outside the company from accusing MarionNet of having a slant, however. In particular, it's suspected that Japan has a grip on their finances and uses it to ensure favorable coverage.

Behind the scenes of MarionNet's broadcast lie not only their own internal staff, but freelance contractors from reporters to producers, all heavily relied upon for their robust coverage. While some of their employees are typical kugutsu, others specialize in getting their hands on dangerous information, preventing fake news fabricated by corporations from reaching the airwaves, and other unorthodox duties.

MarionNet has expanded to the point where it's impossible for them to ignore the fact that they wield a weapon called information against individuals and organizations alike. Though they represent themselves as the 'voice of the masses,' there is a direction and a purpose to their reporting that must be used just as judiciously as megacorps use their covert ops teams. Their Compliance Management Department is in charge of this. In addition to maintaining good relations with other organizations, they ensure that the reporting does not cause panic in times of emergency.
