"The Agency" is the public face of a shadow committee, consisting of military leaders, intelligence experts and government officials. It is currently under control by Amanda Waller. It's only known case is investigating the Riddler, one of Gotham's original supervillians.
It is unknown who founded the Agency or what it's main operations were. Officials in the organization were, if allowed to, over local law enforcement with impunity and take over operations from the highest ranking official. The Agency had a long history of unethical operations, including civil rights violations, domestic black sites and decentralized accountability. By the time Amanda Waller became its director, these accusations were silenced and the Agency were one of the most powerful law enforcement agencies in the United States. Prior to Waller becoming the director, an Agency cell called SANCTUS had developed a bioweapon codenamed Project LOTUS.

Waller and a group of agents arrived at the Virago casino, having heard reports that the Riddler had attacked. After they subdued the last of the Riddler's men, they helped the GCPD round up the suspects and clear up from the attack. They also placed the victim of the attack, Rumi Mori, into a security detail. During this, Batman became acquainted with Waller, agents Iman Avesta and Vernon Blake.
Whilst the agency search for the Riddler, Avesta and Blake later visited Bruce Wayne in his office to interview him on a person of interest, "John Doe". About a week later, another agent, Mario Hernandez, was kidnapped by the Riddler, forced to participate in a death trap, which he failed, and died. Batman and Commissioner Gordon would discover his corpse whilst investigating the building he was held in.
That same day, Avesta, Blake and two other agents were able to locate the Riddler on his personal ship, the Lady of Dublin, but were captured and held within the Riddler's death traps. Desperate, Waller allowed her agents to brutally interrogate Eli Knable, the Riddler's second in command, and kept her agents observing Mori. When Batman was able to retrieve information about the Riddler's location, he put it through to the GCPD and the Agency, with the agents and Waller heading to the ship.
Upon arrival, Batman was able to free Agent Avesta, but was captured by the Riddler and forced to either sacrifice the others, including Blake's, to save her or go through with the Riddler's game, deafening her in the process. Regardless of the decision made, Batman eventually broke free and captured the criminal, but he was shot with a poisoned dart and died. Believing the GCPD to be ineffective or have tampered with her operations, Waller had the Agency take control and forced the GCPD to step down from the investigations.
Whilst investigating the Lady of Dublin and rounding up the remnants of Riddler's men, the Agency sent their agents to investigate a series of explosions throughout the city. Waller and either Avesta or Blake, would be in charge of an investigation of GothCorp, where staff and security had been frozen in ice by an unknown individual.
If Batman calls Waller for help after his battle with Bane, the agents will help him out of a pile of rubble he was trapped under and investigate the GCPD's arsenal for anything that they could connect to the Pact. Using cartridges they find there, the scientists are able to make a counter-agent to Venom, which is later given to the vigilante by Waller.
Agents, including Avesta, followed and monitored Bruce Wayne as he infiltrated the Pact, to make sure he followed by Waller's rules. Wayne, as Batman would later advice that they would stop this, as it could lead to the group members becoming suspicious of him. At some point, Waller decided to give up the Riddler's body to the Pact, hoping that it would get their attention.
Whilst escorting the Riddler's body out of the city, the Agency were attacked by the Pact, who sought to retrieve their fallen comrade's body for their operations. Using an EMP generator from Wayne Enterprises, they deactivated the agents' stun pistols. Despite this, they tried to fight back, leading to multiple deaths and either Bane or Harley Quinn being left behind. Despite Wayne asking her to act, Waller stood by as the Pact stole Riddler's body.
After Batman was able to uncover the location of a SANCTUS base, Waller sent the Agency to arrest the Pact and retrieve equipment for future use. During the operation, they were able to capture Mr. Freeze and Bane, whilst "John Doe" and Harley Quinn were able to escape. With Freeze being infected with the LOTUS virus, the Agency planned to keep him to analyze the effects on the virus. However, Batman/Wayne can tamper with these plans by reducing the temperature in his confinements to help him attempt to combat the virus.
During the cleanup, an Agency taskforce infiltrated the Pact's lair to steal samples of Riddler's blood. They also drained the blood from the criminal's body to prevent Harley Quinn from retrieving samples to create the cure. Afterwards, these samples were moved to cold storage, so that the scientists would be able to synthesize a useable version of the LOTUS virus to blackmail the other members. However, these samples were later destroyed by Avesta to prevent Waller from going through with her plans.
When Harley Quinn held a desperate attempt to hold the Gotham Bridge hostage for the stolen samples, the Agency was involved in securing the area. They would attempt to negotiate with her, but refused to go through with her demands. Depending on how much he trusts John Doe, Batman's actions will affect how the situation plays out.
If Batman is able to trust John, the vigilante's alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, and Doe arrive to help defuse the situation. The Agency is told to let the two through to negotiate with Quinn, though with John being forced to take over the responsibilities when Wayne only angers her further. Depending on whether Bruce is able to trust John and keep Waller at bay, the following will happen.
If Bruce is able to trust John and keep Waller at bay, Quinn is successfully capture, though the Agency quickly turns on John when he refuses to hand over the LOTUS virus. He then attacks their agents and detonates the bombs. As he leaves, he promises the Agency that he will target them and reveal the corruption within their ranks.
If Bruce is unable to trust John or keep Waller at bay, he turns on the billionaire and the Agency. As the agents make an attempt to capture and execute Harley Quinn, John detonates the bombs and attacks them.
If Batman was unable to trust John, the vigilante is forced to interfere and tries to capture Quinn. After he is able to restrain her, Waller and the Agency attempts to get closer, but are unable to take a shot, due to Quinn holding a dead man detonator. When John Doe arrives to save the criminal, he takes the switch and detonates the bombs, causing devastation across the bridge and to the Agency's forces.
