So, the point of this organization is to essentially promote a few things.
1. Darwinist genocide of the weak and unfitting via encouraging conflict across the realms
2. Maintenace of said conflict via the arming of the 'underdog' - which may change at any given moment.
3. Maintaining group secrecy via eliminating loose lips.
It should be noted that while they're clearly not good people, they do not serve the Dark Five, though they often head in the same direction. While the Dark Five seek to dominate, dominance is against the goals of Militare Vivere Est - dominance means no more conflict.
Feel free to ask any more questions.

Tarot Card Position: The Devil
Character Applying With: Aku K'Nukl (http://forums.btacdragons.com/index.php?showtopic=5336&hl=)
Motive for Joining: In an on-going pursuit of artifacts, gold, political power, and anything else seen as a route to his end goal of godhood and conquest, Aku sees the Militare as a way to both consolidate his own power and potentially influence the various societies as groundwork for what he intends to be his eventual domination.
Justification for Position: Having ties to both the upright and reversed associations for the Devil, Aku seeks to "reclaim his true form," using (though not exclusively) material gains as a source of power.
Card Power: Mephisto's Gaze: Manipulation through hypnotism via ocular contact, effectiveness lessened against those who can resist their natural temptations easily; once affected, the power gains traction (with time and use) with that individual until Aku has near-complete control over an affected target. Time away from Aku and his Gaze results in a decaying effect - excessive exposure, though, results in a longer period of time needed before the effects wear off. Given enough exposure, victims could potentially be rendered slaves to the Gaze even if Aku were to die.
In addition to having sway over one's immediate actions, Mephisto's Gaze also increases the victim's desire to give in to their natural temptations more readily - drugs, alcohol, shopping, torture, etc. - anything that one is wont to do is made even harder to resist.
Tarot Card Position: Fortune
Character Applying With: Ranafa
Motive for Joining: Ranafa loves using her wheel to cause trouble and chaos for people and generally enjoys torturing people with the wheel, especially trapping two people that aren’t her using it and watching them fight.
Justification for Position: Ranafa is a fortune-teller and has a literal Wheel of Fortune, like on the card.
What do you believe the card powers should be?: Fortuna’s 10 - She has a roulette wheel known as Fortuna’s 10, named as such due to its 10 sections. She can trap two players in the vicinity of this wheel once they accept a game, and the zone created is a “good fortune zone” for Ranafa and a “bad fortune zone” for anyone else. This represents the literal concept of a Wheel of Fortune and also the nature of Fortune: to hook one on luck and chance until their ruin as well as bring riches to the victor and despair to the loser.
Tarot Card Position: Lover
Character Applying With: Lennan
Motive for Joining: Lennan has a deep hated for people who are in love. He feels that people are meant to be alone in life so that they get stronger.
Justification for Position: Lennan messes with the relationships of others and can represent the lover card in it's reverse position; disharmony, imbalance and misguided values.
What do you believe the card powers should be?: Lennan affects people's emotions and mind. He makes them think that the person that they are closest to is their enemy and makes them fight one another. He does this through illusion, an aura that amplifies emotions and the power of suggestion.
