The Seven are an organization in Fortnite supposedly comprising seven individual members known primarily through their code names.

The group's first appearance was in Chapter 1, Season 3, and have since been physically absent from the game after Season 9. However, a small carving found on one of the trees in the trailer for Chapter 2, Season 2, has been speculated to herald the return of the organization to Fortnite Island. So far, players only know the identity of three members, leaving the potential four additional individuals unknown.

Who Are The Seven Fortnite Organization?

It's unclear whether The Seven is a true group of different people or one person from multiple timelines. Similarly, their origin is unknown, but players suspect their goal is contain the Zero Point from which they can create a blackhole and create a second island entirely. Some believe this works in tandem with the theory of a single "The Seven" individual—the Visitor—looking to break the dimension loop and return to their home.

The Visitor was the first member to appear in-game—crash landing on the island via space capsule embedded within a meteor. Where they came from is still unknown. However, players now know the reason for their crash was in an attempt to destroy the Zero Point entirely.

From there, The Visitor was able to build and launch a rocket that opened a Rift under its own power above Moisty Mire, Greasy Grove, and, eventually, Loot Lake, before disappearing.

Next came The Scientist—what many believe to be The Visitor from an alternate dimension--in Season X. He came to the island inside a meteor, as well, only to get caught in the air mid-crash thanks to the Zero Point. It created a wave of energy in Season 9 which brought several items, aspects, and people from different timelines to this Fortnite Island.

The Visitor, The Scientist, another revealed member known as The Paradigm, and four other unknown members created Rift Beacons meant to open six Rifts above the island—a plan detailed by voice recordings from the Scientist. Each Beacon was made from parts of the B. R. U. T. E. s which were then set to be destroyed via an apoptotic virus.

During The End event, it's said that one member died after colliding with the Zero Point and that all members worked together to transport the icy meteor The Scientist originally inhabited into the Zero Point, itself. This caused the entire Fortnite Island—"Athena"—to rearrange itself into the one we explore now in Chapter 2—"Apollo."

The Seven weren't heard of again until Chapter 2 Season 5 by John Jones' alleged boss, saying "...and do not draw the attention of The Seven." They are the primary enemies of the Imagined Order.
