Lilith is the first of the Neverborn. Lilith’s emotions are frighteningly mercurial, a calm and cunning leader one moment, a frenzied creature of pure hatred and malice the next. She remembers the end days of Old Malifaux as fleeting memories, impressions of a crueler, but better, time. She will not abide humanity’s incursion into what Lilith sees as her domain. When the Breach first opened over a century ago she was curious, inquisitive to see what these creatures were like in numbers. She was aware that humans had, from time to time, slipped through the walls of reality – the hag, Zoraida, being one such individual. What she learned from her observations convinced Lilith that humanity was a canker to be excised.
Lilith is concerned, as she sees the potential for the Neverborn to fracture into sects, much as it had been in the early days, before she and her sisters brought them together. For now, Lilith is content to plot on a short term basis, slowing but not thwarting humanity’s expansion beyond the City’s walls. Her steady hit and run tactics have earned her prominence on the Guild’s Most Wanted list, the bounty growing with each successful attack.
For her time is not a limitation, but a resource she will continue to put to good use. Her patience can span centuries if need be, until her planning and maneuvering once again places her in the position to end humanity’s presence in Malifaux.
The city of Malifaux is a dangerous place, but it seems as cozy as a hearth when compared to the horrors that roam the southern Badlands. Every nightmare in every monster story ever told has its counterpart in a Neverborn creature that lives somewhere beyond the relative safety of the city’s walls. The abilities of these horrors are as terrible as any nightmare, since many spawn from the same dark sources that gave rise to these nightmares in the first place.
The Neverborn are terrible monsters that brutally prey upon the humans who have appeared to claim Malifaux for their own. The Neverborn take many shapes, from the winged Nephilim to the ghostly Sorrows. Some are deceptively similar in appearance to humans, able to walk among them, and these are by far the most dangerous, as their unknown designs are far more subtle and far-reaching. Where many Neverborn are satisfied by grizzly, indulgent murder, these human-looking monsters wage a campaign of terror on mankind through grand organized raids and clever attacks on human settlements. Despite this focus on the bigger picture, most of these Neverborn are not above the occasional indulgent murder.
The origin of these creatures is uncertain. Many believe that they are created by some maligned force, and thus, they were dubbed Neverborn to help mankind explain away their complete lack of human empathy and mercy. Slowly, however, as the mysteries of Malifaux are revealed, its human settlers have been granted glimpses of the world’s distant past. The appearance of monsters in this world seems linked to a great cataclysm, occurring ages ago, that transformed it from a place not unlike Earth into the ruined splendor seen today.
This cataclysm marked the death of a world ruled by logic and reason, replacing it with one fraught with passion, madness, and death. The Neverborn are the people of this new age, a people completely foreign and unknowable by man. Savage and ruthless, they are prone to fits of murderous madness and capable of incredible violence. Beyond that, they are creatures possessed of a terrible secret, of sins committed in the distant past. They have endured the death of their world and will not tolerate man’s trespass upon its ashes.
The Guild has tried everything possible to diminish the Neverborn threat. Willing to deputize anyone, the Guild frequently sends groups of hunters on Neverborn raids; most of these deputies fail to survive their first encounter. The Ortega family, with their matriarch, Perdita, has proven the most effective deterrent to Neverborn proliferation. This family is credited with hundreds of slain monsters, and their success has led to fame among the people of Malifaux. The Ortega family are the heroes that the people idolize and the threats that the Neverborn, despite their best efforts, just can’t seem to destroy.
