About Cromblell, it seems he only got promoted because his research achievements
even Union doesn't know he has "powers" since the 10th, 11th, and 12th elder were surprised by Frankenstein's power which Yuri said similar to Crombell's power.
and most of those elders (beside defectors from Lukedonia and werewolves) got their power from Human Enhancement + Noble Contract
means originally they were simply "powerful" people of our times, like Bill Gates or Trump
if they (random rich people) could be made strongest because of that, there's no reason to NOT replicate that results to other subjects. Means Union could have a legion of beings with elder level of power but somehow refrain to do so?
just because strong rule trope? they lower their overall fighting prowess so no one stronger than elders? but those elders are lousy combatants...
