The Illusive Man, once called Jack Harper, founded Cerberus after the First Contact War and an incident with the [[turian]]s involving a [[Reaper]] artifact (no connection to the Reapers was known at the time). Cerberus used covert operations to destabilize alien governments, acquire alien technology, and generally try to improve the socio-political power of humanity relative to the other major races. Initially Cerberus  was a Systems Alliance black ops group with limited oversight, but it went completely rogue in 2183. Since it operated with an "ends justify the means" attitude, it was labeled a terrorist organization.

When [[Commander Shepard]] revealed the threat of the Reapers, the Illusive Man took it very seriously. He recognized that a Reaper invasion could cause the extinction of humanity, and he took steps to prevent such an outcome. He made the capture of Reaper technology one of the primary goals of Cerberus. He also recognized Shepard as "an enemy of his enemy", so he assigned one of his best operatives, Miranda Lawson, to look out for him. Unfortunately, Shepard was killed in a [[Collector]] ambush, but the Illusive Man refused to give up. He sponsored the Lazarus Project to find a way to bring Shepard back from the dead, dedicating the majority of Cerberus's resources to the effort. In 2185, they succeeded, and Shepard used Cerberus resources to defeat the Collectors, after which Shepard and Cerberus parted ways.

The arrival of the Reaper invasion fleet was a turning point for Cerberus. With no time left for subtlety, Cerberus came out of the shadows, using recovered Reaper technology to indoctrinate captured civilians, rapidly creating an army of loyal soldiers. All other operations were suspended, and Cerberus dedicated all of its resources to finding a way to control the Reapers by turning the remote signal that controlled [[husk]]s back on the Reapers themselves. Various military operations were also conducted to block efforts by Shepard to destroy the Reapers before the Illusive Man's plan to control them could succeed.
