A little more about The Paladin
I talked before about some of the details of The Paladin’s world, elaborating on the various paladin disciplines. Today I want to talk a little bit about how they operate in the United States.
Now the paladins operate within the US as sort of contractors. This is because the United States government oversees their operations within national boundaries. The Bureau of Demonic Affairs was into effect through the work of President Theodore Roosevelt after his second term. The BDA was formed in response to a large outbreak of lycanthropy, centered around a meat packing factory. This, in part, lead to the Pure Food and Drug Act, followed by him leading a secret operation which largely killed off most of the werewolves in the US around 1910.
Since then, the BDA discovered the presence of the Paladin Order and decided it was easier to allow them to continue functioning within the US under their direction, seeing as how the Order already had the manpower, training, and equipment. This has bred some hostilities between the two organizations, but for the most part, they work together.
There’s your peek into The Paladin. I hope it inspires you to check out the first three chapters on the front page and my bonus short story, Val’s Blog.
