In the years after World War II, agents of the FBI began to document the unexplained phenomenon that defied explanation. These reports included various types of spirits, practitioners of the occult, and other horrific monsters. The only organized opposition to these beings was by the Catholic Church. For centuries, the Church defended mankind from these horrors in two ways. One group of specialized priests sought out unholy beings and destroyed them when possible. The second group suppressed knowledge of the supernatural from ordinary people to prevent another age of superstition.
The Church was not the only ones who knew the truth however, these individuals did not belong to any organization. These renegade hunters called themselves “Trackers” and like the Catholic Church, they hunted beings of supernatural origin with good intentions. Unfortunately, some of these trackers operated outside of the law and in some instances caused more problems than the creatures they hunted. They did not operate by any rules except those they chose to follow and they did not work in secrecy which regularly put them in conflict with the Church.
In 1951, the FBI convened a series of secret meetings with the Church, the leaders of Congress, and some of the most influential Trackers. The original intentions of the meetings were to bring order to the chaos created by the Trackers. However, from those meetings, a consensus formed there needed to be a government agency to handle the supernatural and paranormal.
In February of 1953, President Eisenhower signed a secretive executive order creating the Department of Forgotten Affairs under the auspices of the FBI and to be overseen by a designated secret member of the Senate. The first agents were priests and Trackers recruited by this Senator. Eventually, the agency promoted seven individuals as directors and the Senator’s identity became secret even from even the agency in which he oversaw. Only the directors know the Senator’s identity.
In the late 60s, the agency’s success led the Church to turn over its hunting and suppression activities to the agency which had by then been nicknamed “Oubliette.” Several priests and Trackers were not happy about this arrangement. Some of them chose to continue their work unsanctioned.
Please note: early works do not have Oubliette in their title because I did not start off using that naming convention.
