Cerberus was founded when the criminal genius and hacker Mast3rm1nd Z3r0 noticed the hacking abilities of shy teacher Jack Hack and offered him an alliance, which would grand him more money than his job. Jack later met his former classmate, Curt Van Clicker, who had become a cryptologist and hacker for the military by now. Realizing his potential, Jack convinced Curt to join them. The three hackers moved into one house and quickly developed a modus operandi for their activities: To earn more money by having all three members hacking at the same time. This way, Cerberus was able to make more profit than a single hacker would gain. While Mast3rm1nd has no problem dealing with hacking and his job due to being a high level criminal, Curt and Jack face problems as Curt is constantly afraid of getting caught by his superiors at the military while Jack has moral doubts about whether to continue hacking or focusing on his beloved job as a teacher in his former school.
