| Supernaturals have existed as long as humans, if not longer in some cases. Living in secrecy for the preservation of their existence, small communities have existed in the shadows throughout the world, while some remain loners. It was not without strife, species clashed with one another for dominance, in particular vampires and werewolves. A treaty was proposed in the early 1900s to stop the blood shed on all sides, but only went into effect in 1907. A century ago, in the wake of that treaty, specific haven cities were established across the globe to give supernaturals a place to exist in the open without fear. Protected by enchantments and human determents, these cities have flourished.
Each city is ruled over by a council of the five primary species, and these hidden cities have become meccas for creatures fleeing persecution for simply being who they are. As of 2015 it was officially voted on to begin to allow humans who sympathize with the supernatural to coexist in these cities and a human has been appointed to each city's council. Human residents of the city are voluntarily marked with a magical enchantment and instead of seeing a dilapidated, abandoned town, they can see these haven cities for the thriving communities they are.
But the inclusion of humans has not gone without conflict. Secrets have been shared and new groups and certain enterprising corporations are cropping up with a vested in the supernatural. For good or for bad..
THE CITY OF FALLHAVEN Established as one of the very first haven cities, fallhaven's location was selected for the abundance of cloudy weather and the safety of the vast forests of the pacific northwest surrounding it. Primarily inhabited by vampires and werewolves at first, it has sine drawn interest of every kind of supernatural being.
as fallhaven is a haven city, meant to provide a safe space for the supernatural of the world to exist in peace exactly as they are, very little excessive violence is tolerated.
Fallhaven is lucky to be a bustling community of eclectic creators, and almost every business is locally owned. Set along the beautiful, clear, - River, Fallhaven has an established affinity for the water. The boardwalk that stretches from downtown north is full of shops, restaurants and a relaxed atmosphere. Cozy but open, Fallhaven is an overgrown paradise of nature, built up within the thick natural forest, nature is everywhere for residents of Fallhaven, making it now much more popular amongst the Fae.
the council of six |
a formal group of six species elders, who only just recently allowed a human elder for the first time in centuries, the council oversees the PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE OF THE SUPERNATURAL AND HUMAN COMMUNITIES of fallhaven, the other haven cities, and the world as a whole. lawmakers, judgement dealers, and a wealth of knowledge and advice, this council acts in the best interest of the city of fallhaven, with several of it's standing members having been a part of the community since fallhaven's founding.
For as long as anyone can remember, there has always been a need for either the policing of other supernaturals - a task no human force could accomplish - or for groups to stand up against imminent human threats. Teams of supernaturals, and now humans, have been formed within each of the haven cities to respond to tasks within their geographical location, and Fallhaven is no different.
New syndicates must be approved by the council of six of their home base city before they can begin operating. Often the council assigns or offers tasks and missions for the welfare of the city, keeping these syndicates busy.
