I am back.
S.W.O.R.D. my thoughts,
I don’t think this could really work in terms of the realationship between Cloak and sword because of the main factor being that Cloak is an organization where it must be hidden, at all costs. The only reason the resistance and new coming members can be found in the present (ep 1-3) is because the hidden organizations of resistance will have to stay alive long enough to wait out the droughts of researching and patience.
I like the idea of the group sword, but I don’t think it could relate to the story about cloak. Personally I don’t like this idea of similar groups fighting each other. I rather have totally different groups fight, e.g: rebels and empire. Unless your talking about tribes in conflict, then that is a pass.
Also, to restate. WE ARE RIGHT NOW IN THE TIME OF CLOAK IN AN ERA WHERE AETHER TECH IS NOT A THING!!!!!! (Or we barely understand anything and we literally just found it.) this is because the Scarlet man is also not here. So we all desperately surfing for our lives to restore aethesia, with no means at all knowing how to beat Lucky. Yet.
