New Beginnings -
It was one of the darkest periods in World history the day the Devil's Favorite Demon unleashed an unimaginable wave of genetically cloned supermen ushering in an apocalyptic War. Aided by the alien race of Ninjan's, and led by their queen, Sha, an unprecedented force of evil had been cultivated. Sweeping across the Earth causing death,destruction, and chaos in their wake. Governments were toppled and countries destroyed. Hero and villain stood side by side, united against the forces of Final Arrow and Sha in a vein attempt to save the World. Casualties were severe as many lost their lives. Caught in the War's destructive path, France's clandestine order of assassins, the Order of Sancta Camisia, were destroyed. Their legacy forever forgotten as their fortified island sank to the bottom of the Ocean. However, Jean Luc LeBeau refused to lay down and die, instead the Aristocratic Assassin reformed an Illuminati style organization called the Court of Owls. Led by some of the most influential and politic proficient powerhouses, and secretly funded by the Legendary Hellfire Club, the patrician organization is quickly rising to the upper echelon of France's political structure.
Baptized in the essence of the Order of Sancta Camisia, as well as the Les Assassins Silincuex, the Court of Owls is positioned to form a corner stone of New France's political foundation. On the surface the organization appears as any other Hellfire Club affiliate. However behind the decadent lifestyle and art and science of political administration, La Cour des Hiboux houses what remains of the once fabled French assassins. This Illuminati faction within the LCH known as the Corbeaux Silencieux (Silent Ravens) help ensure the Court of Owl's continue to rise in their quest for power by eliminating any and all obstacles.
Location & The Arc - LcH Chateau:
Renovations are currently underway for the architectural masterpiece that will serve as the Courts embassy and fortified base of operations. When completed the Chateau shall boast some of the most technological advanced resources in the World. A perfect, all be it, unorthodox, mixture of mystical magic and innovative engineering, the Chateau is safeguarded by the Arc. Three identical Omega Level teleapaths who are integrated directly into the establishment itself through an artificial intelligence program known as Odyssey Dawn. In time their capabilities artificially adapt to any number of possible threats reaching the optimal tactical solution through a simple thought.
Underneath the Chateau lies a labyrinth of intricate cave systems that has been converted into Jean Luc's personal Fortress of Solitude, serving as the Arcadian v2. With highly sophisticated computer systems all linking back to the original Oracle programming.
Any former member of the HFC or OSC will automatically have a place within the Court of Owls if they so choose. The LcH is an evil organization so only villains need inquire about possible openings. The thread is open for character (and out of character) interactions. As always, enjoy yourselves and have a good time.
