Well, nearly any member of the Aurum could be turned into a Lex Luthor style villain...
Well, the way my view on it goes.. the Aurum per se, can't be classed as an "evil organisation".
The majority of it's members are hard-core capitalists. To an extent most of them have large patches of greed thrown in... But a lot of it is in the vein of "we're the merchants who make sure food, ore, goods are provided, and we're getting fed up of Kings/Government/Buearacracy screwing things up when they're not qualified to know about business". So they've formed a loose network with each other.. thereby using each other's contacts and levels of influence to ensure favourable conditions for themselves and to make sure people have access to the goods they need...
Hence why you can have plenty of "good" people as members of the Aurum.
Certain levels of "corruption" don't have to be evil after all ;) You're just helping a "friend" get his new house for his family...the fact that he works for a government/another organisation that can provide help to you at a later date and that "friend" will have influence over it....
Of course, while the majority of the Aurum are just businessmen(or women to be pc :D ) in a semi-secret fraternal order seeking to pool those sorts of contacts and spread themselves out... theres the more "darker" heart of a group within the Aurum who would feel free to restart the Last War if they thought it was good for business... and it doesn't stop the odd member turning out to be a Lex Luthor style businessman... :D
You make them sound creepier than the Daelkyr.
Currently the Cult of Tiamat are my main bads. A Rakshasha is after the group because they found a "Book of Khyber" that can bind or release planar creatures or beings bound in Khyber itself. The rakshasha has led the town of New Cure to believe that the PCs murdered a local mining company owner.
The PCs publically criticized the man for trying to take a local kobold mine from the kobolds. The they went into the mountains for a quest. The rakshasha took the form of one of the PCs and murdered the man with two witnesses present. So that sucks for them. She really wants that book!
