This article is about the criminal organization. For a list of its members, see Category: V.I.L.E. Operatives.
The Villains' International League of Evil, usually referred to as V.I.L.E. for short, is Carmen Sandiego's criminal organization whose agents either assist her in committing outrageous thefts or else commit thefts on her behalf. Originally based on planet Earth, it has since expanded into the entire Sol system and surrounding areas. Gang members now come from the four corners of the universe, but unfortunately, no two of them speak the same language, so heist coordination has become a real pain in the neck lately. They have a headquarters on the asteroid Ruffrock.
