"Like a Phoenix from the ashes, the Hellfire Club will always arise more brilliant than before."
The original Hellfire Club was established circa 18th Century in Britain as a haven for the rich and powerful to enact their deepest and darkest desires. It became a retreat that expanded into many chapters including London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, and several other bustling metropolises, the corruptive influence of the Hellfire Club growing like a societal flame just out of view of the proletariate. But the infamous Hellfire Club was destined for more nefarious purposes than a mere hedonistic fantasy. It became a hub of subversive criminal activity enacted by the elite ruling classes throughout the world, a cabal to shape current events to their desires by usage of their power, heritage, and financial means.
Hoping to stir the Hellfire Club from its bout of apathetic hedonism, Alexandra Steele set about forming her own branch of the Hellfire Club with more sinister intents. Those who felt dissatisfied with the old order of the club rallied behind her for a change in pace, hoping to evoke greater change upon the globe. But how long until this new Hellfire Club is discovered and contested by the old?
Creating an uneasy schism between two sects of the Hellfire Club and endeavoring to siphon away the more proactive world members, the newest reincarnation of the society in Venezuela was funded and built by the White King and Queen, Xenon and Xandra Steele. With patrons from the affluential and prominent strata of society, the Venezuelan chapter of the Hellfire Club is a mansion devoted to the most lavish and depraved of vices without so much as a second glance from local authorities. The club itself offers a variety of services and pleasures ranging from drugs and alcohol to gambling to companionship, a throwback to the decadence and class of the Classical Period. Anything goes for the richest and most powerful of the world. If there is a vice or fetish, the Hellfire Club offers it in the finest of qualities for the enjoyment of its members.
Within the exclusive club there is an elite group which seek to expand the influence of the Hellfire Club and their sociopolitical agendas. It is a collection of only the most capable and powerful people on the planet. This Inner Circle is comprised of three courts: the Black Court, the White Court, and the Red Court. Inside each the hierarchy is broken down further into Kings, Queens, Rooks, Bishops, and Knights. The Kings and Queens of each faction stand on relatively equal footing at the top of the pyramid. Each member of the Inner Circle is expected to maintain a decorum of power and prestige and to spread their dominion through various spheres of authority such as mystical, metahuman, economic, social, and other domains to bring glory to their primary allegiance: The Hellfire Club.
An elusive addition for the reinvented Hellfire Club, the Ivory Guard is a clandestine security force, hand-picked by the White King himself. Appropriately attired in white suits to fit into their environment, the Ivory Guard is run by the White Queen's associate, the Demon of Silence. The powerful disembodied consciousness maintains a psionic connection throughout their ranks, monitoring and controlling the environment of the Hellfire Club. Each member of the Ivory Guard was selected for their abilities, skills, and ample experience – Some were taken from the Venezuelan Military whereas others are from Xenon’s Royal Guard, all of them however possess a deep loyalty and peerless discipline, capable of undertaking their duties with rigorous diligence. Most if not all possess standard telepathy granted by their overseer, over half possess telekinesis, and the others own exotic abilities such as shape shifting, teleportation, and more esoteric mutations. Each has a specific purpose, and their skills are used wisely.
