Supertrope of Power of the God Hand (YKTTW)

It appears that a hand is a body part that can be used to name all kinds of cool organizations. Simply slap an adjective on the word "Hand", and you've got a name for The Order, an Ancient Tradition, a State Sec or anything else, really.

Other adjectives:

  • White Hand is the name of Saruman's budding empire in Lord of the Rings, also a moniker of the wizard himself.

Needs more examples and adjectives!
