In the 1860s, the "wild" west was well on its way to being civilized by Manifest Destiny, but there were many parts of the country that remained formerly unclaimed by this principle. To these areas, many began to flock for their chance at opportunity or a fresh start.
Rumors of people with special abilities were all over the world, but in the American territories especially, those rumors were most active in the west. People known as "Devilkin" were said to do amazing things, such as lifting objects without touching them, turning into great beasts or even causing lakes to freeze over. Several witch hunts in the east, instigated by a force known only as the Marauders, may have sent these people running for the untamed western territories where mankind's laws wouldn't touch them. Unfortunately, man's laws were quick on their heels.
The Devil's Kin is a Marvel Comic MUSH based in the late 1800s, just after the end of the Civil War. Come try your hand at a Marvel character in a different era!
It is the 23rd century, and Mankind is not alone.
90 years ago, in the midst of World War Three, the Formics, better known as the Buggers, attacked Earth.
The first invasion, humans fought off by sheer attrition.
A generation later came the second invasion, and this time they won only because of one man: Mazer Rackham.
If they come again, humanity's defense would need many Rackhams.
The Battle School exists to find these new saviors of mankind.
Every 6 months, twenty of the Earth's most brilliant six-year-olds launch into space, bound for this school positioned in an undisclosed location.
There, they join other children, and train in the nuances of zero-gravity combat through classes and games - the heart of which is the Battleroom.
The training is unceasing, for the fate of the world rests upon small shoulders.
