The Governing Agency (also known as the Authority, Governors, and Controllers) is the faction in charge of protecting the Net Sphere. They are similar to Safeguards, but share different and often conflicting goals. They want to prevent the chaotic growth of the Megastructure caused by the Builders, and seek a human with Net Terminal Genes as Killy does. Because of this, they often aid Killy against the Safeguards and Cyborgs.
The Governors can only act on the orders given to them by a human with Net Terminal Genes.
