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.  

THE CHARACTERS

LAYLA

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.

TRAVIS

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.

PRYA

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.

LIANA MATTHEWS

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.

THE LaLAURIES

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.
