Temple in the Shadows

From ShadowHaven
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The streets of Seattle have always been stained with sin. Good people killed without thought, the corporations worshipped as false idols, and those who try to fight against it falling to corruption or greed. For too long as the Light of the Lord been ignored and the sins of the Adversary have been allowed to fester and grow like an uncontrolled infection.

Along with the recent surge of those afflicted with HMHVV becoming bolder and bolder in their feeding practices, and more Infected appearing seemingly every day, it has become untenable to allow the shadows to continue unexposed. With the recent annoucement His Holiness within The Vatican has chosen to dispatch The Order of the Temple in order to purge the sin from the Shadows, and bring them back into the Light of God.

Factions

The Order of the Temple

A secretive organization within the ranks of the Roman Catholic Church, they are known as the military branch of the church, filled with zealots and true believers to a one, they are brought in to handle threats to the church and the world that cannot be dealt with in another way. Filled with warriors and magicians of every stripe, so long as they believe in the One True God, they seek to make the world a better place through their belief.

They see the organizations that infest the shadows, organizations that feed on the innocent for their own fortune and power, and have deemed these sins to warrant the harshest possible punishment. They desire to clean the streets of syndicates, gangs, magical groups that they feel turn people away from the light of God and any threat they believe warrants the response of His Holy Army.
