The followers of the Legion of Shadows aim to enforce their brutal and ruthless brand of justice on the world while operating in complete secrecy.
The recruits of the Legion of Shadows follow a strict regimen, carrying distinct black emblems and supplies up to their mountain lairs. Depending on the recruit, part of this training includes harsh brainwashing techniques in an attempt to erase their past in order to help prepare them for the life of an assassin but this is not always the case.
Unlike the ancient Order of Assassins, whose main objective was to halt sectarian conflicts and wars within the world; the Legion of Shadows acts as an organization that is a catalyst to the reformation of decadent civilizations around the globe by killing those who are perceived as threatening the fall of nations, kingdoms and civilizations.
The Legion of Shadows is a secret organization founded by Ra's Hashim (exactly when is unknown) to be "the fang that protects the head". The Members of the Legion are extremely skilled killers who demonstrate a willingness to die at a word from their leader, Ra's. They have included some of the most dangerous assassins in the world including the Blue Ghost. For much of it's current history, any member to fail in an assassination was in turn targeted by the Legion. In more recent years, however, this policy has apparently relaxed somewhat.
The Legion of Shadows is an ancient and powerful secret society whose stated purpose is to restore balance to the world by enacting purges at various points in history. They target places they deem are the greatest sources of civilization's corruption and decadence, places that lead to suffering and injustice.
The men who have sworn allegiance to the Legion of Shadows come from many different backgrounds; former soldiers, mercenaries, assassins, petty criminals and ordinary men. However, all of them share a common similarity of hating what they define as evil and a desire to serve what they call true justice. Every member of the Legion of Shadows is fanatically loyal to the Legion's cause. It is this fanaticism in which every warrior knows that he is expendable, his life forfeit, if it means fulfillment of the Legion's plans. They are trained in the arts of theatricality and deception.
1. Ra's Hashim: Only I can NPC Ra's Hashim. In fact, I may even create him as a character. But for now, he's an NPC. All I ask is you please treat him as if he were my character. And if you wish to try and kill him (or even kill him for real), please ask me permission first.
2. Main Headquarters: The Legion of Shadows main base of operations is only revealed to the worthy since it's in a secret location hidden away in some mountains. In other words, it's by personal invitation only. However, if you wish to contact the Legion, or it's leader, for any reason then just let me know and we'll set up an RP. For faster response, please contact my main at ParagonxXx. For the record, the Legion has smaller HQ's throughout the world, so it's not hard to contact them if you know about them.
3. Secrecy: Only the world's elite criminal organizations should know about the Legion as I wish them to remain secret from the world's heroes, CIA, NSA, Interpol and the FBI. They are the Legion of Shadows and they do try and operate in secret to those who might try and shut them down if they knew about them.
4. Please respect the normal CVnU and board forum rules.
Note: This is just a basic organization (NOT a team). It's nothing fancy and too the point since I didn't want to go too in-depth. I wanted to expand the Blue Ghost's background and I felt this was one of the ways to do it. I didn't want the organization who turned her into an assassin to remain nameless so I decided to give them a face.
