Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's episode 07: "The Facility, Part 2"

Iliaster, literally meaning the first chaos in the matter of all things, was the secret society of Star Guardians who secretly controlled civilizations and events from all over the world behind the scenes, and served as the central antagonists of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.

According to Rex Goodwin, Iliaster started approximately 3,000 years ago in the Andes in South America and all who have sworn loyalty to Iliaster govern every aspect of controlling society. Although Goodwin stated that Iliaster's agenda was for the benefit of the human race, skeptics such as Sayer believed that Iliaster had planned to use the Crimson Dragon for world domination.

That would be substantiated when the oldest Emperor Jakob asserted that the organization was founded by their God, with the objective of "correcting" history when humans put it on the wrong path. He further stated that they had done so many times throughout the centuries. Seeing as they were willing to destroy entire cities in pursuit of their agenda, it would appear the organization was not concerned about individual lives to fulfill what they had perceived as the "greater good".

Throughout the series, the depiction of Iliaster changed drastically. Initially, they appeared as a secret society in New Domino that was led by Rex Goodwin, which included several government officials and duelists that were focused on discovering the identities of the Signers and ensuring they were prepared to defeat their enemies, the Dark Signers. Later, they appeared to no longer have any interest in the People of the Stars, and were instead being manipulated by Z-one and his friends in their efforts to prevent the tragic future.

Rex Goodwin's Iliaster

17 years ago, an unknown individual that had represented Iliaster, had influenced Roman Goodwin to cause Zero Reverse. It was also implied they had been responsible for Rex Goodwin's rise to power in New Domino City, and becoming Director. In the present day, Rex Goodwin lead the group as the 360th Star Guardian in New Domino City secretly, alongside several other high ranking officials, such as his second-in-command, Lazar. Using their public face of city officials, they manipulated things behind the scenes, such as organizing the Duel Monsters Tournament Fortune Cup and inserting it's members in to expose and confirm the identities of the Signers, in order to gather them all together to help them fulfill their roles to stop their counterparts, the Dark Signers.

Z-one's Iliaster

After Rex's death, three mysterious hooded individuals showed up from Iliaster, and took Rex's position as Director to begin their various schemes. Unlike Rex's group, these from Iliaster antagonized the Signers, and opposed them directly to accomplish their plans. Eventually, it was revealed they are three aspects of one man, Aporia, alongside his allies Antinomy, Paradox, and their leader, Z-one were individuals from the future who aimed to prevent its tragedy from ever happening, by manipulating history to stop the Meklord Emperor Genocide from ever taking place. Though not directly stated, it was likely that Z-one and the others had used their powers to go back in time and establish themselves as leaders in order to use the organization to further their own goals, which explained in the drastically different depictions of Iliaster prior.

Trivia

  • The shift in Iliaster's goals and origins were due to real life complications of the series behind the scenes. A cult in Japan called the "Roma Sophie" came to media attention while 5Ds was in production and airing, and Li-Mei Chiang, voice actress for Carly Nagisa (Carly Carmine in the dub), was rumored to be a member of the cult. The showrunners wished to avoid any negative associations between the franchise and the cult, and as part of this, rewrote Iliaster's origins in the second season to establish them as time travelers instead of a secret society, and to make them more directly antagonistic.
  • After the four remaining humans, Z-one, Aporia, Antinomy, and Paradox, transformed their bodies into machines, they were all left-handed duelists. In Antinomy's flashback, viewers could see that he and Z-one, in the form of Yusei, were right-handed duelists. Also, when Aporia had his own flashback while dueling Z-one, he was shown to be right-handed as well.
  • In 110, Jose claimed that Iliaster had existed since ancient times by manipulating societies secretly, which matched with the original depiction of them by Rex. It's likely that Z-one and the others had used Infinity to alter the past and establish themselves as leaders in order to use the organization to further their own goals.
