A sprawling metropolis that is home to many people, millions of humans all going about their everyday lives with barely an inkling of what's going on around them. All across the world, human beings have always been fascinated with mystical, the magical, the unknown, but rarely if ever can they stare it in the face and believe that it's really there. This city is only different in that they have to try just a little bit harder to avoid the truth, to keep from seeing what has been right in front of them for centuries. That they are not, never were, and never will be alone on this Earth. Demons, Vampires, Beastfolk, Sorcerers, Ghosts, Elves, and even the occasional super-powered Human all walk this city in throngs, trying for the most part to blend in and pretend that they are no different than you or I.
...But they are.
Some of them cannot simply walk into a coffee shop and say good morning to the barista, with a smile and a wave. There are many whose lives are so much more complex, so much more secret because they don't have the luxury of feigning normality. Some are too shy to stand up and proclaim how wrong this is, and there are those among them who subtly work toward the day when all will be accepted. Still others, though, choose to lash out at humanity for their differences, to rage at the 'ordinary' world for never allowing them to become a part of it.
