Welcome to the world of Allegones, where The Great Depression is in full swing, a mass exodus is underway to the shores of California, and there's no business like show business.
Of course, this is no mere show. Here we have Eclessia Circus, currently one of the longest-running and most fantastic circuses in the United States. Sure, everyone knows a circus is just out to make a buck at the end of the day but this circus? You've gotta see it.
Besides, if the Church is up in arms over it, well. Bound to be interesting, at least.
The circus is collecting people: magicians, freaks, oddities, along with those who simply have no where else to go. The circus is full of people who have "special abilities", people who only pretend to, and people who just want to make a living and ensure they have something to eat and a place to sleep when the day ends.
On the other side of the coin and the Atlantic we have Santa Francesca Romana: a group connected to the Roman Catholic Church who would like nothing less than to destroy the Eclessia Circus, it's Management, and everything they stand for.
"We are trying to stop an abomination in the eyes of the Lord from destroying the world and plunging it into a great darkness. Good people may get hurt; good, God fearing people may die. We shall pray for their souls." - Helen Priscus, addressing members of Santa Francesca Romana, January 1935.
