Proxies are the back-up plan of the Black Swan in case one of the members of The Collective dies. In the case of one of their deaths, the Proxies would run the Black Swan until Sophie, Dex, Fitz, Biana, and Keefe were ready to become members of The Collective. Presumably, they are backup Collective members, but this has neither been confirmed nor denied.
