Psi-Force was a group of teens that had, after the mysterious White Event, developed strange psionic powers. These particular teens were all on a list of potential psychics created by Emmett Proudhawk, a CIA operative that was investigating such things to counter similar resarch conducted by the Soviets. This list, however, had been sold by a rogue agent to various corporate and national interests.
Knowing the imminent danger these kids were in because of his work, Emmett himself left the CIA, doing everything he could to save as many of these teens as was possible. He managed to rescue five of 'em before his death, and they stuck together after that, though it was unwillingly at first. Over the years of the team's existence, the following paranormals were a part of Psi-Force:
Healer: Anastasia Inyushin was dragged to the Siberian Project after the 'mysterious' death of her entire family. Liberated by Emmett Proudhawk, she eventually made her way from the USSR to the America, where she joined Psi-force for protection from the KGB. Availability:
Johnny Do: autistic and dyslexic, Johnny Do was locked up in a Soviet sanitarium for years, even after he developed his parability. After being liberated by Psi-force, Johnny slowly began to recover from years of abuse and joined their paramilitary action. Availability:
Network: an abused youth who was always charismatic to an extent, Wayne Tucker's influence grew dramaticaly after the White Event. Pursued by various sinister interests, Wayne became the leader of Psi-force after joining them for mutual protection. Availability:
Overtime: Lindsey Falmon grew up in an empty family life, and was lonely until the day she met Wayne Tucker. Instantly taking a like to this rebel, she wound up joining him and his Psi-Force friends in their efforts to remain free from the government. Availability:
Psi-Hawk: created by the concentration of at least one of the original psionic paranormals collected by the late Emmett Proudhawk, this spectral gestalt is the ultimate weapon in Psi-Force's arsenal - a combination of all their powers and psyches. Availability:
Salvo: Michael Crawley was a stereotypical nerd, more interested in science than in people. When the White Event 'blessed' him with the ability to blow things up with his mind, his lack of social skills hindered his ability to mesh with Psi-force for quite a while. Availability:
Sedara: a young Mujahedin warrior with the parability of teleportation, Sedara Bakut used it to devastating effect against the Soviets. After her own father betrayed her to the enemy, she decided she was done with that war, joining Psi-force instead. Availability:

Other Groups of Note:
the Medusa Web: founded in 1969 by Alexei Ruyanev, this group of subversives is out to achieve a sort of world government, though their plan for doing so is somewhat bizarre; in essence, they wish to unite the world by rallying it against a singular threat - the Medusa Web! Originally working in a standard military sense, the Web has recently augmented their forces with paranormal warriors...
Crasniye Solleetsi (Red Sun): created by the secretive KGB program known only as the Siberian Project, this group of paranormal soldiers was designed to augment Soviet armed forces in the field. Of course, while the group had a competent field leader, it contained the demonic paranormal monstrosity calling itself Rodstvow, so their ultimate fate was never really in doubt.
