DHST: Domesticated Hostile SubTerranean
The year is 2001 and the Slayer is protector of Guardian City, The City. Largest of the walled human cities, it resides along the western coast of North America, encompassing the Hellmouth. More than ten million humans call it home and it is built on the indentured labor of thousands of DHSTs. They are the nameless, faceless masses, known only by identification numbers and devoid of any rights or voice. They were recruited from the Wastelands, the no man's lands that exist in the areas outside the Council walls. Victims of the vampiric plagues, human outcasts, demons ... those outside Council protection survive hand to mouth in the harshest of conditions, left to the whims of Varkesh and his demonic hoards. But inside the Council walls, it is safe, clean, ordered.
But there are murmurings ... There is unrest ... Something is coming and the Council is desperate to end it before it begins. The DHSTs are restless. There are rumors of massings and traitors. It falls on the Slayer's shoulders to ferret out the threat.
But she cannot do it alone.
