The world of OUBLIETTE is similar to our own, save for the existence of Super-Powered Beings. These SPBs are men and women capable of performing acts normal humans could only dream of. They can fly, walk through walls or breathe fire. Some can lift staggering weights or are nigh-invulnerable, possessing bulletproof skin. An overwhelming majority of these people are Neo-Sapiens. The general public is relatively unaware of where Neo-Sapiens come from, save that they can be born into humanity and are often indistinguishable from normal humans.
Other SPBs may have received their powers through science or mystical training. Some men wear armor which grants them phenomenal abilities while others learn to wield arcane might or manipulate their body’s life energy.
Sometimes, rare individuals are born with powerful minds and can read the thoughts of those around them. As Espers grow, they can even develop their abilities to allow them to control another’s very actions.
Because of the potential each SPB possesses, humanity often views these unique people as threats. Regardless of the source of their abilities, SPBs are often persecuted or worse. Many people believe such actions are vindicated, given that the first SPB to reveal himself to the world chose to use his psionic powers to hurt humanity and begin a war.
Since then, many more terrorists have followed in his footsteps, using their gifts to usher in an age of chaos and fear. Still, for as long as mankind has trembled before such powers the world has been protected by brave souls who stand for justice. The Vindicators have gone through many incarnations over the years but have long been a stalwart force fighting for humanity.
Welcome to OUBLIETTE… a world populated by Men of Great Renown.
