Legionum Vis Vires
Power is power
The LVV is an organization devoted to the acquisition of one thing: Power. They have no place for those who see the world in terms of good and evil. Such 'heroes' or 'villains' are seen as outdated, dinosaurs in the race for the only thing that matters in the modern world.
No theory is too extreme. Nothing is forbidden. The only thing that matters is the pure, unadulterated pursuit of power. While some may condemn their methods as morally repulsive they will not do so for long; the LVV has little tolerance for critics and even less for those who stand in their way.
Founded by Ivana Strigidae, twenty third of her rank, using the wealth of the plunder of Gothic City and its banks she hand picks each member of the organization. Ruthlessness, discipline and ambition are her criteria.
The first goal of the LVV is simple. Unify the underworld under their banner and crush their opposition.
Standing over one hundred stories tall one can stare over the frozen Russian countryside from its vast balconies or take flight from one of its helipads.
The building's staff is well paid, uniformed and accustomed to keeping their silence.
Although the facilities are vast no business operates from inside its sterile walls. The entire Spire is given over to the use of a single organization: Legionum Vis Vires.
It boasts all the amenities one would expect from a building of its size and stature. Entire floors are devoted to metahuman training facilities. Bank after bank of servers and hard wired fiber optic connections give it a powerful cyber presence. Fully stocked laboratories are prepared for those of a scientific bent.
Unlike most buildings of its size and expense it lacks any type of security. The members of the LVV handle all intruders without mercy or respite.
Kamelot fell. Gothic burned. The world was awash in the flames of conflict. The old powers were silent; destroyed, abandoned or grown feeble with age. Leaders and heroes had fallen silent in the face of modern villainy. Some said their ways were outdated, others that they were simply afraid of the new breed.
In the wake of Amaranth's capture the Arcani were cast into a power vacuum. Nature arbors a vacuum. The fittest rose to the top through ruthlessness and sheer force of will. Rivers of blood were shed in the night but in the end Ivana Strigidae, twenty third of her rank, held dominion over Amaranth's mutant coalition. The secret masters of the Orochi bent the knee, the militants of the Flock fell in behind her and even the psychic Esotrix assented to her leadership.
Though they were forced from the rubble of Gothic the Arcani departed with a wealth of information thanks to the efforts of the Sanguine, as well as all the loot their forces could carry. Dozens of banks vaults were plundered of gold, diamonds, jewelry, bonds, fine art and more. Though much vanished into the grasping hands of the plundering mutant forces the majority found itself under Ivana's control. It was put to use immediately; acquiring the Spire and founding the LVV.
