Although these are not species, they are important to the Anitaverse and need to be addressed. All species can be a part of these groups, though some species in certain ranks are looked down upon.


Regional Preternatural Investigation Task-force (RPIT)

Ranks within this task force (in descending order) are: 
  • Lieutenant
  • Sergeant
  • Detectives
  • Investigators (who have no authority to arrest, see below).

The Regional Preternatural Investigation Taskforce (RPIT, usually pronounced "Rip-It") is an extention of the St. Louis Police Department charged with keeping the peace between the human and supernatural communities by investigating all crimes with a supernatural aspect, and apprehending and/or exterminating the guilty parties. It has only recently been formed, largely as a half-hearted effort to placate the liberals and the press after the groundbreaking Addison V. Clark case. Its remit is to investigate all supernatural crimes, whether it be commited against humans or against the supernatural biengs themselves, including Vampires, Lycanthropes, Zombies, and more. Derogatorily known as the "Spook Squad", it is not considered a positive career move to join it, and it is comprised mostly of police officers who have aggravated their superiors in some way or another.

It was created by the City of St. Louis two years before the Addison V. Clarke case and started out as simply a way to appease the media and politicos about the preternatural crimes that occurred within the city; i.e. vampire and shapeshifter attacks, preternatural murder victims, etc.

In the beginning, it was seen as a punishment to be transferred to the team. No one had expected RPIT to actually solve these crimes, but RPIT has grown into a nationwide organization. There are task forces all over the United States, with it's second largest in New York City.


Although an investigator may oftentimes be asked to help by RPIT, they are not an official part of RPIT. This role is for those that work on a temporary basis to help RPIT solve certain cases. They are pretty much the lowest on the totem pole ranking, but are often essential to solving a case. These would include animators, necromancers, clairvoyants, therapists, and even some low-level officers. They also cannot make any arrests while on a case.

Federal Marshals and Vampire Executioners

An easy way to remember this: 

All vampire executioners must be federal marshals, but all federal marshal's don't have to be vampire executioners.

A vampire executioner is authorized to kill vampires pursuant to a warrant of execution. Most vampire executioners only kill vampires, but some have been known to kill other preternatural beings. They are very rare and are only about 8 in the entire U.S.

After the Brewster's Law was passed all vampire executioners are grandfathered into federal status, after they qualify on a shooting range. As federal marshals they are permited to enter any preternatural crime scene, or follow a vampire or other non-human crime suspect across state lines.

Regular Federal Marshals have the duties of apprehending wanted fugitives, providing protection for the federal judiciary, transporting federal prisoners, protecting endangered federal witnesses, and managing assets seized from criminal enterprises. They also execute all lawful writs, processes, and orders issued under the authority of the United States, and shall command all necessary assistance to execute its duties.

Bounty Hunters

Bounty hunters capture fugitives for a monetary reward. In many states, it is legal to hunt lycanthropes for bounty. In some states, only a postmortem blood test to prove lycanthropy is needed to make it legitimate.
