"Whoever has the cash, has the control"

--Said to have been founded in Britain during the 18th century by a collection of affluent noblemen and women, the Hellfire Club was built around the ambition to create a veil of lascivious ecstasy and upscale euphoria for the common social juggernaut, while its now infamous Hellfire Monarchy indulged in the greatest pleasure known to both the gods and the mortal man; power--

Hellfire History

With a beginning as an extravagant hub for the moneyed lifestyles and carnal indulgences of 18th Century British aristocrats, the Hellfire Club's wealth of monetary resources and beguiling promises of salacious elation ensured the lavish establishment's expansion to other European territories, and eventually American soil, most prominently fortifying it's presence with grandiloquent branches in New York City and Paris. Experiencing an evolution in its core objectives, the Hellfire Club's primary purpose soon became the acquisition and exertion of power through the realms of politics and economics, opting for an underhanded approach to it's desire for global control.

A historic source of orchestrated wars and assassinations purely designed to accelerate the agendas of its most invaluable members, the Hellfire Club's reputation furthers its polarizing flair. While once overseen by the Lord Imperial, the prestigious title has since been discontinued upon the Manhattan Matriarch, Valerie Huntington-Whiteley's coronation as it's White Queen, transferring all of its powers and authority to the now frantically coveted title of 'White Queen', resulting in a cycle of failed backstabbing, meticulous plots, and even in the founding of inauthentic replicas of the club itself.

Power

Since the Huntington Heiress' ascension to the pinnacle of monarchical power in the Hellfire Club's new era, the magisterial club has experienced a variety of innovations, none greater however, than the opening of a Spanish branch in the seaside city of Malaga, headed by Ziccarra Liafador, the Hellfire Club's Red Queen. The Malagan Hellfire Club successfully cultivates a unique place where the fashion, art, design, music and people of the Spanish city to form a new dimension of socially arresting inspiration and captivating entertainment without compromising the continuity shared by all of the club's distinguished branches.

With an environment boasting a refined cosmopolitan style, where sophisticated and refined design express the club's patrician swagger, the Hellfire Club, though historically a home of perceived antagonists, knows no greater protagonist than the enrapturing combination of elegance and class that have ingrained themselves as its core characteristics.

The Inner Circle

Perhaps the most authentic incarnation of a supposed Illuminati rumored to seek the establishment of a new world order by misguided teenage minds, the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle encompasses all of the club's core principles of power, control, and influence. Since the incipience of the endless socio-political conflict between man and mutant, the Inner Circle has functioned as a secret society opportunistically dipping it's fingertips in the globe's most tumultuous scenarios for the sole purposes of maximizing the wealth and power of it's individual members, but none greater than it's undisputed White Queen, Valerie Huntington-Whiteley, as well as aggrandizing the social magniloquence and glory of the legendary Hellfire Club.

The White, Black & Red Queen

Often found within the shielding walls of the dubbed 'Inner Circle Lounge' or 'VIP Section' to the common man, the Inner Circle's respected constituents are rumored to hold meetings in a domain of even greater palatial splendor than the rest of the Hellfire Club itself. Said to surround themselves in an atmosphere dominated by the rich scent of premier cigar smoke and aromatic spiciness from the plethora of fine alcoholic beverages, few, if any, outside the walls of the Hellfire Club are familiar with the identities of the majority of the Inner Circle's rumored members, the Inner Circle Lounge's air of unparalleled exclusivity and mystifying secrecy never wavering and never breached.

Entertainment & Security

Pleasure & Sin

Offering an endless array of luxuries to fulfill every arriving guest's desire, the Hellfire Club brings the most extraordinary clubbing experience to all who set foot inside, mesmerizing guests with a dynamic menu of entertainment ranging from exotic dancers to live performances by the globe's most celebrated musicians. In the Hellfire Club, the most diverse styles meld into a compelling melange of decorative arts. The interior architecture derives it's impulses from the legacy of various periods of the past where one finds antique choir stalls, ubiquitous angles, frescoes, murals, painted ceilings, Romanesque window arches spanning Byzantine painted glass windows. The very essence of nightlife and entertainment comes to life in the home of pleasure and sin.

Security

Regulated by an overtly complex quantum-computing system installed by the Hellfire Club's White King, Andres Knightfall, a virtually impenetrable force field comprised of continually replenishing twinned/virtual particles is instantaneously erected, encompassing any Hellfire Club branch under external assault. Generated via the manipulation of quantum and virtual particles, the force field's function is relatively simple. When some object/energy interacts with it, the field of particles cannot be properly annulled in almost all cases. No recorded shocks to the field have managed to penetrate it as the quantum-computing system succeeds in duplicating particles from within an unknown source to generate the field.

Furthermore, among some of the force field's properties is the ability to absorb and store energy e.g. electricity, kinetic energy etc. in a personal quantum dimensional state. Energy that is stored and is prioritized by quantum computers for certain types of destructive counter-emissions against external threats. Additionally, the club's security staff are rigorously trained in the primary aspects of combat ranging from stand-up striking, grappling, and ground-fighting while being armed with an advanced brand of weaponry ranging from electro-thermal accelerators to plasma-powered cannons that accelerate projectiles by using plasma discharges between electrodes at the rear of the barrel, generating an immense increase in pressure.

Stylishly clad in a luxurious, three-piece, two-button Ermenegildo Zegna Centennial suit, flawlessly augmented by the fashionable aestheticism of an accompanying vest of aristocratic flair followed by the joint inclusion of a captivating silk tie lightly customized by his prominent initials. The presented exemplification of sartorial excellence culminating with elegant cotton-silk, and a collar bar wordlessly speaking volumes of the Knightfall's habitual attire-oriented regalia. The Cultured Catalan's smooth raven hair, recently cut short and close to his head around the back enabling fashionable blending of the sides into the top layers with maintained length for a showcased back sweep and suave presentation further enhancing Andres' intrinsic preference for visual immaculateness, rendering even a single misplaced strand of hair nonexistent. Carrying himself with genetically ingrained panache and mesmeric class, the White King's presence in the high-society club serves as a prominent testament to his enjoyment of the finer aspects of life. Situating himself at the Hellfire Club's bar, Andres requests his most preferred alcoholic beverage, "Johnnie Walker, Blue Label".

@valerie_huntington:

I don't care if I get beaten. For all I know everyone on the outside of the Edge is stronger than me. That just makes me more anxious to climb that wall and see for myself what's on the other side. It doesn't matter if I stumble along the way - I'll stand right back up.

It's all part of being human, right? Never giving up? Just watch - I'm going to climb that wall, and challenge this whole world to a fight!

@valerie_huntington:

"Shi*" the muttered as she looked up from the sink, the black bruise across her chin was not going anywhere, no matter how much makeup she used. Adding a little more concealer she brushed powder across it and looked through her massive wardrobe. Choosing one of her only high necked gowns she slid it over her sleek body and smoothed it down, zipping up the side with careful hands, she stepped into the second layer, the soft satin of the fluffed up underskirt made her smile. Twirling in the mirror she remembered the last time she'd worn it and smiled, thinking of the evening later where it ended up on the floor. Shaking out of that lovely memory she picked up the invite on the table. It was a gala event at the HFC, all the top people in the city had been invited, though she was amazed her invite made it's way too her. Once the cream of the socialite set, her dark path towards redemption and heroic activity lead her away from old friends and routines. It'd been a long time since she'd been given such an invite.

"I hate how paranoid I am sometimes" she spoke to her white fluffy fur ball that rubbed near her dress "Meow" was all she got in reply. Looking down at her watch she hissed and picked up her heels, making one final check of her hair she zipped down to the waiting limousine. Glancing at the door that lead to the garage, she longed for her beautiful new baby roaring under her, but tonight she was to be the belle of the ball, so to speak.

The limousine purred through the city, pushing aside any and all that came near it until it made it's way up to the elegant and prestigious doors of the Hell Fire Club. The night was full of the elite of New York, all being carefully bustled past the paparazzi that hung about near the doors. Warrior guards protected them with nothing more than a stern glance. She watched them through the window, thinking of all the ways they could bring her down before she even moved made her gulp. This was not a place to f*ck around in.

"Miss SaDiablo" the driver was waiting with the door open, she stepped out and was hit with the flash of lights, before they realised she was just a pretty nobody and pulled away towards someone more interesting. Smiling at the greeter she gave her invite and was escorted inside.

@surreal_sadiablo: A story above the steadily growing hum of excitement below her at the HFC's first New York gala event, Valerie Huntington-Whiteley sat motionlessly in her expansive quarters. The Upper East Side socialite, businesswoman, and now White Queen looked expressionlessly at her own reflection inside a vanity that sat fittingly among the many other expensive pieces of furniture within her lavish living quarters, which had been decorated with meticulous care to suit her opulent tastes. A pair of captivating pale blue eyes stared back at her from within the mirror, along with lengthy locks of light blonde hair which fell in glamorous waves around her shoulders. With her hair and makeup already attended to for the night, all that remained for preparation was the elegant white dress laid gently across her bed. Nerves of steel prevented the White Queen from feeling anxious for the HFC's first real premiere as she stood and allowed the thin silk robe, which had previously been tied loosely around her hourglass waist, to fall silently to the cold wooden floor of her room.

Slipping her amorous figure into a custom made Dior dress, the HFC hostesses completed her attire with a pair of white Louboutin pumps that had been laying patiently at the foot of her bed. As a woman of effortless allure, the iconic beauty decided to do without any excessive jewelry for the night, choosing to pair her designer dress with nothing but an understated set of diamond earrings. With one last unreadable glance into her mirror, Valerie set out to make her first major appearance as the White Queen of the Hellfire Club.

Descending the steps leading to the club portion of the Upper East Side townhouse, Valerie found herself surrounded by exactly what she had hoped for. Business leader, political figures, and the social elites from all over the globe had gathered to experience the exclusive entertainment provided by the Hellfire Club. Taking a quick lap around the front entrance to be dazzled by the constant flashing of the paparazzi posted outside the building, Valerie entered her club with all the poise and elegance she was renowned for. Many guests she recognized, many she didn't, but she greeted all with an inviting smile and captivating charm. After finishing her entrance into the aristocratic event, Valerie retreated to the VIP portion of the lounge where she could get a better view of a woman who had previously caught her attention. While her face brought back no particular memories for the White Queen, she knew her name must have made its way onto the guest list, otherwise entrance would have been impossible. Watching the subtly striking woman flow with delicate grace while sipping tenderly on a freshly prepared martini, Valerie's thoughts traveled from pondering who the woman was, to what her intentions were within the Hellfire Club.
