Teleinformatics is the Endowment of the hunter conspiracy the Vanguard Serial Crimes Unit in Hunter: The Vigil.

A requirement to join VASCU is to have innate psychic talent of some sort. In order to allow agents to truly tap into their potential, the agency works on unlocking their skills through drugs, amplifying their potential. Once the psychic skills have been refined, the agent's talents are classified into one of three areas and they are then put to work.

The skills found in VASCU agents tend towards one of three categories: Interviewing, in which the agent uses telepathic abilities to raid a target's mind; Investigation, which heightens an agent's normal senses to inhuman proportions, and Research that grants ESP-type powers to allow agents to view things as no other person can.
