Division Six is a compact of hunters that first appear in the book Witch Finders. They are composed of several cells of hunters who work for, but outside the United States government to hunt down the supernatural, especially "witches".



While the members of Division Six claim ties to the American Revolution and George Washington, the true origins of the compact lie in the more recent time of 1976. A congressional aide, Thomas Major, who also served as a hunter from time to time stumbled upon a "Bicentennial War" between groups of witches; on July 4th, the witches hoped to affect the development of the next two hundred years by making small changes to government policy during the significant date. Major and his allies, most of which also had the ears of Washington officials, decided that the idea was too risky to allow the witches to carry it out. They launched full-force attacks, breaking up the factions and driving the witches back underground, allowing the date to pass without causing any major changes.

Hunter's actions attracted the notice of a government agency that called itself the Panopticon, a bureau dedicated to subverting supernatural influence in the government. Mister Jones, a member of the Panopticon, was granted permission to form a small group of operatives who would handle the dirty work of stopping the supernatural; Hunter and his allies were the first members of what was to become known as Division Six.


Division Six continues its work to this day; when it looks like a supernatural force or being has worked its way into a major government influence, Division Six is called forward to eradicate the threat. Often, they are not told of why these individuals are a threat; they are simply paid to put a stop to their plans. The group particularly targets witches, seeing them as the largest overall threat, but other supernatural creatures are not above suspicion.


Mister Jones still remains in charge of the Division, and is the sole contact any cell leaders have with the Panopticon. While Jones claims the targets of his missions are taken from Panopticon lists, they are in fact hand-selected by Jones from his enemies and rivals. Members are paid cash in direct deposit to their accounts and are issued a "sort of official" Federal ID.

Occasionally, members of the Division are promoted to the Panopticon itself; however, former members had better be wary of trampling on the feet of Mister Jones, lest he put them on one of his lists.

The Division currently consists of three departments: Department Alpha, which do the planning and logistics, Department Charlie, which does the intelligence work, and Department Whiskey, who actually perform the operation.
