The Union is a compact of hunters made up of average, everyday people who earn an honest living by day and hunt the paranormal by night to protect the families and homes they've worked for. The Union is probably the simplest of the compacts in terms of its goals; they don't seek to shake up the world or explain the supernatural. They don't care what the monster is. They simply want to protect their families, homes, and communities from the dark threats that more legitimate authorities won't or can't handle.


From time to time, the labor movement has organized towards more than improving working conditions; they have also worked to protect what their members have worked for. All of them were local or regional cells and usually sporadic, ending when the threat had been ended, or when the threat ended them. In 1999, the leader of one such organization, Holly Ramirez, realized her group was far from the only one when doing some internet research. Using that same resource, she began to bring together these cells, hoping that a larger organization could get more accomplished than several smaller units. The first boards met with issues, mostly in members being identified and eliminated, but the Union has since become more secure and invitation-only.


Membership is by invite-only; potentials are investigated by both nearby members and network administrators who carefully research their background. If the potential member proves worthy, they are invited to join the network, where they have access to forums, research, and funding for weaponry and medical treatment, and, if all goes wrong, funerals. They also offer support to family who had members in the Union, but lost the battle.

The Union members fall into one of three general types. The Home First who make up most of the Union are just that; they don't seek to pick fights, only protect their home turf. The General Strike are more aggressive, seeking out creatures of darkness to keep them from growing strong enough to affect their community in the first place. The final type are the Politicals, who are the most vocal and dangerous; they want to protect everyone from everything, be it a growing vampire gang or a company shorting its workers on health care. Of the three types, the General Strike and Politicals are particularly prone to reaching early ends, and most Home First members approach them with great care.
