Mystery Cult The Magic City Cast List


FHC, LLC

(Mortals/+ only)

Purpose

A holding company controlled by the descendants of Julia Tuttle. Psionic powers are common among her descendants and the family and company both are powerful behind-the-scenes real estate players in the city.

Relic

The city of Miami itself is a Relic for the Tuttle Family, and they draw their power from the city that they built with their influence.

Doctrine

FHC, LLC. operates publicly largely under the radar and focuses primarily as a holding company that invests in real estate and development projects in the Miami area. Privately, however, they espouse family-first values that encourage individual members to better themselves by bettering the family as a whole. While some competition is rewarded, anything that puts the family at risk is heavily frowned upon. Not all members of the Tuttle family are psychic, but those who are are also encouraged to expand on their gifts by making use of the training and experience of the older members of the family.

The Miami Infoshop

(Mortals/+ only)

Purpose

A collective of the bizarre people of Miami. They are primarily concerned with their own protection, but work with the Executive Circle to stay in the know regarding what’s going on in Miami. The Infoshop espouses anarchist and libertarian socialist values, and lets its members pursue their own interests free of oversight or interference.

Relic

A framed and tattered black cloth hangs on the walls of the Infoshop, above the bike-repair area. The flag - a relic of the Infoshop’s involvement in the Second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights - barely survived the event. It now stands as a memorial for those who the Infoshop fights for.

Doctrine

The doctrine of the Miami Infoshop is usually expressed in quick slogans: “Eat the Rich,” “Kill Your Heroes,” and “Three Word Chant” being the most popular. In reality, the group is loosely organized in a horizontal manner, where members choose their own level of involvement. A good number of the Infoshop’s mundane membership participates as the shop’s librarians, bicycle repair team, and Food Not Bombs volunteers, but anybody is welcome to fulfill any role.

Mechanics

Niqibat Al-Tijara

(Mortals/+ only)

Purpose

The Moroccan’s criminal over-syndicate bridges the criminal interests of the city and the more respectable membership of the Executive Circle. They primarily offer below-board resources and capabilities the Executive Circle wouldn’t normally have access to, though the other factions do not trust them.

Relic

At a hard-to-find building near Miami’s port is a small office that despite all appearances, is heavily secured. Within that building is a small shrine brought to America by the Moroccan. The shrine is to one of the Moroccan’s ancestor-gods, worshipped in traditional Berber manner. Only the most trusted of the Moroccan’s associates are initiated into the true Niqibat Al-Tijara.

Doctrine

The Niqibat Al-Tijara began as a simple merchant’s organization in Morocco, but has since expanded as a subversive criminal empire in Miami and other trade ports around the world. On its face, the group is a syndicate interested in keeping the peace in the criminal underworld in order to expand everybody’s wealth. However, that activity is simply part of the secret faith The Moroccan and his close associates practice.

Mechanics

The Order of Saint Cervantes de Valladolid

(Mortals/+ only)

Purpose

A secretive Catholic Order dedicated to contain and purge supernatural threats to their community. The group also welcomes practitioners of Santeria and other Catholic-syncretic faiths.

Relic

The Order’s base in Miami, the Church of the Holy Mother, houses a reliquary common to all of the Order’s churches. The reliquary, a simple hawthorn box tied with old leather, supposedly contains the ring finger of Saint Cervantes de Valladolid himself. It is the Order’s faith in the Saint and his cause that propels them forward in their purpose.

Doctrine

Within the Order, the number one goal is to understand and eliminate threats to the Catholic community they are a part of. In Miami and their resulting membership in the Executive Circle, they have expanded their mission to the city as a whole. The Order itself is insular and private, revealing little of itself. Their rituals, variations on the Sacraments as well as a few of their own, would be considered by outsiders as torturous mutilation.

Mechanics

The Seventh

(Mortals/+ only)

Purpose

An organization of “retired” Lost Boys who work together to protect the Executive Circle and the city at large from supernatural threats. Their ranks have swelled with membership from Cuban and Venezuelan refugees that have come to Miami in the intervening years.

Relic

A wooden ship’s wheel hangs in the main gathering room at the USCG Seventh District base. The wheel is the only thing that was recovered from the CGC Tarpon after it was lost at sea during an incursion fighting Those Below. The wheel, which simply floated to the base and was recovered a week later, is now a constant reminder of the dangers The Seventh face in defending Miami.

Doctrine

The Seventh operates most of the time as a support organization for its membership, something akin to a VFW chapter that has to facilitate its members’ drug addiction. However, there is a serious military aspect to the group. The Seventh’s leadership is always tracking Those Below, and orders come down to deal with them and other threats Miami faces. Members in the Seventh are all considered trusted professionals at this point. Though the vast majority are Lost Boys, not all are, but all are military veterans.

Mechanics

Membership levels
