WHO WE ARE
Welcome, one and all, to the Aetherwatch Society.
To the public, we are a group of Aetherical Redressers, offering a collection of healing, magical consultation and similar assistant services. People are welcome at our door with problems of the medical, supernatural and arcane variety, and it is our job, and pleasure, to help deliver them to a place of safety and relative comfort. Our staff of qualified members will assist in removing any magical dangers, healing wounds, and diagnosing issues.
The Society also finds themselves in the field, answering calls for aid, tracking leads on dangerous items and working to clean up issues left in the wake of horrible events. Aetherwatch is not a place for heroes, but rather an organization for caretakers.
Those entering our ranks find themselves serving under leadership teams of the Medical Unit, The Aetherical Team, The Protection Unit or even working as scouts and information gatherers underneath our Intelligence Group.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
The Society is run by Catherina Renard and Emeline Tousart, both incredible mages in their respective fields. They have worked to create a Society that not only helps the common person against dark practitioners and horrible aetheric situations, but also to resolve the aftermath they leave behind.
The society is a group of magically inclined individuals, tended towards the deepest layers of secrecy. The Redressers of the society serve selflessly in not only the pursuit of aid but in reclaiming dangerous artifacts. Their hopes of recovery is for study and in the end, to obliterate or lock away these relics. The Redressers also exist to be the outward face while protecting a secret from within.
This secret is known as the Midnighter Society. A few dedicated individuals picked from within and without who are brought in to hunt the darker parts of the world from dark casters, to twisted creatures. They are known to darker circles as rumored hunters, shielded by the outward face and their protectors, the Redressers.
Inside the walls exists a layered society of structure, mentorship and close companionship. For these three philosophies must exist to form bonds and develop trust along the way.
It takes a special kind of talent and many hands to maintain such an operation, and a mind steeled against the horrors and vile things that pour from the dark corners of the world. If you have such a mind... then read on and learn of the ways in which the Aetherwatch Society recruits its loyal members.
House Ornitier, an order of magic-users destined to fight a dark war against blasphemous mages, was founded during the Sixth Umbral Era, around nine hundred years ago. Based on the principle of one master, one apprentice, House Ornitier recollected the scripts of the Third Umbral Era’s witch hunts to continue the battle against dark mages and otherworldly forces. For generations, radically destructive black magick was passed down and used as the weapon of choice, primarily the element of fire, called hellsfire, to cleanse evil and as a representation of the witch hunts. During the Seventh Umbral Era, the lineage was severed when the black mage Kino Kiari succumbed to a doom spell, leaving an apprentice as the lone survivor. (This ends 3 years ago)
The Aetherwatch Society was founded by the eight members who stepped out of their everyday lives to build something bigger than themselves. Whether it was for redemption, to serve, to save, or for vengeance, these were known as the Founding Circle. While the Circle still exists today, many have stepped up into the leadership of the Society to aid in the dangerous and fulfilling work taking place.
Aetherwatch has grown into a place where anyone with experience will find a place. Even those in need have crossed from patient or client to fighting and healing alongside the veteran members.
