Veritatem
supernatural creatures have existed for thousands of years, living in the shadows of the world alongside their human counterparts. secrecy was upheld for survival’s sake, small clusters of supernatural beings living underground, participating in their own feuds and power struggles. at the same time certain families of humans, committed to eradication of the supernatural, attempted to maintain order and protect humanity. some supernaturals were allowed grace, as long as they didn't antagonize the humans, but for centuries, the supernatural community as a whole remained firmly underground.

this illusion shattered in 2010, when the radicalized pastor joseph monroe formed THE RADIANT DAWN and broadcast the execution of a vampire in the morning sun's light. outraged vampire groups outed themselves, advocating for equal rights alongside humans, with several other species following suite. a branch of the government created to try and register these supernaturals was formed, and extremist groups on all sides reared their ugly heads.

a highly regarded werewolf, rian mercer, formed the orginization noctiluca and gave a highly publicized interview on good morning america, once and for all confirming the existence of the supernatural and stressing the peaceful lives they could live side by side with the humans of the world. tensions eased.. for a little while.

communities began to form throughout the world, strength could, of course, be found in numbers and supernaturals felt safer living together. while not completely taking over cities, they began to settle in and around certain places, prized for their supernatural leylines or simply the cloudy weather that allowed for certain creatures to live better lives. seattle, washington became one such city.
