Future War Cult (FWC) is one of the three factions of The City. The FWC is known for its vast military prowess, as well as its secrecy. The FWC believes that another war with The Darkness cannot be avoided, regardless of whether they stay in or flee the City; therefore they must be ready to fight. FWC's representative in the Tower, Lakshmi-2, is a vendor who is located up the stairs by the shipwright. She sells FWC-themed weapons and armor for use by Guardians in the Crucible.
