Children of Darkness

The Children of Darkness is a gang that prides themselves on terror. They often are referred to as goths and vampires, those who call them wannabes typically take it back quite quickly. They pride themselves on appearance and are the most selective out of the gangs (save for The Wire) when it comes to new members.

Leaders: ‘Father’
Headquarters: Warehouse #5

The Children of Darkness are ruled by a single individual who goes by the nickname ‘Father’ or ‘Darkness’. He’s seen as the ‘creator’ of all his children. Father has his chosen pets who tend to hold a greater position than others and aren’t ones to be crossed. There are many minions that serve various jobs such as dealers, prostitutes, soldiers etc.

The COD own many businesses throughout their territory, from nightclubs and bars to art studios and theatres.

COD tend to enjoy ruling over their territory more than focusing on crime. However, their main source of income is through dealing drugs and prostitution. COD is the largest dealer of drugs in New Dublin.

The Children of Darkness tend to take their roles as ‘creatures of the night’ a bit too seriously sometimes, participating in blood letting and some questionable sexual acts, they can also be very tame in their play. They enjoy Role-Playing (in a variety of ways) and the theatre. Of course every individual has their own likes and dislikes as well.

Children of Darkness tend to use non-lethal blunt weaponry like staffs and canes in a fight, but won’t shy from gun play when needed.

Children of Darkness tend to only bring in new members who fit an appearance standard, judged by Father or his pets. If someone wishes to bring in a new member they must be presented to Father, and if approved there is a blood sharing ritual that is performed. Only the most beautiful get into the gang.

While there is no uniform for the gang, most do dress in darker colors or just black. Businesses owned by the CoD, CoD members or non-members who have loyalty to the CoD typically have a black flag or this symbol in their window:
