SHINE is a mysterious religious sect and scientific organization that seems to have much information and an apocalyptical point of view about the meteor that landed on Peru. It's pretty much a sure thing they were the ones that proposed the grandilocuent vocabulary for "The Messiah" meteor and the "Impact" and "Baptism" events.

SHINE partnered with the Fung family providing them with EVA stolen from the ERD department. Even they acted simply as EVA brokers, it's very likely that they created their own EVA Hybrids too (namely, Brazel and Shirley).

They helped the Fung Family to organize the XD Tournament to select candidates for the Awakening, although SHINE's actual intentions behind that are still unknown.
