The history books call it a house of horrors. A testament to the true depravity that inhabits the souls of man.
The little girl who escaped the demonic forces which occupied the LaLaurie New Orleans mansion on a sunny day in 1833, though, called it something else: the site of a rebirth. The little girl swore on that day that she would never be anyone else’s victim, and so began a centuries long campaign of bloody revenge. The Retribution Cabal (RC) was born, protecting only those descendants of America’s original sin.
Now on a cyberpunk stage where technological wonders leave no place for creatures of legend, the LaLauries and their denizens reappear, continuing their blood-soaked quest for obtaining ultimate power. Time will tell if the remaining members of the fractured Cabal can stand as the bulwark between humanity and the rising hordes of darkness.
A hired gun͟, Layla lives her life fast and loose. Doesn’t answer to anyone and shirks responsibility. Drafted for the Retoch Frontier Wars, she was one of the more talented recruits, but didn’t like the stifling/ authoritative environment of the military. Added to that, she questioned the Manifest Destiny͟ rhetoric of Earth’s forces and was promptly kicked out. With all the training that she’d received, and no shortage of crap on Earth to weed through, she became a mercenary for hire. She finds herself reluctantly pulled into the shadowy war of The Retribution Cabal.
An operative of the Retribution Cabal. A recent recruit in the organizations fight against against the demonic/ supernatural hordes which exist back home Earth. Travis is a gifted pilot, and trained in various forms of hand to hand combat, and adept at using a variety of high tech weaponry. Travis is a veteran of the Retoch Frontier Wars which took place with humanity’s push to the farthest reaches of the universe. He was recruited by Prya when he got back home to join the ranks of The Retribution Cabal.
A ranking member of the Retribution Cabal. Even in a world of the far-flung future The Retribution Cabal has still found itself busy fighting for the disenfranchised in a world beset by the terrors that go bump in the night. Prya is at the forefront of this fight, being tasked to recruit the best and brightest to join the ranks of a failing organization.
The current head of The Retribution Cabal. She’s made it her goal to continue the fight of the fractured organization, by any means necessary.
History tells of the horrors which this couple meted out in a French Quarter mansion. The Retribution Cabal has made it its goal to ensure that the couple is wiped from existence, but the LaLaurie’s have always been able to stay one step ahead of the group.
