Mastermind Monday - The Sea Devils

While I don't want to get too crazy in the mythos for my homebrew setting, I would like a touch of it.

The Sea Devils

Based in Boston, the Sea Devils have terrorized New England in one way or another since colonial days. Founded by the Erik Marsh in the early days of America, the gang was originally a religious cult that sought to awaken slumbering Cthulhu. To gain resources and spread influence, they used their amphibious heritage to become smugglers. Eventually they branched into other vice and many among the family lost sight of their original mission. This suited the elders, who rather liked the opulent life-style crime gave them. 

The modern organization only pays lip service to Father Dagon and Cthulhu. They are led by the deep one gangster, Devilfish. Despite operating in different cities, they often clash with NYC's Demon and his partner Kid Goblin. It should be noted that there is a silent minority that seeks to return the organization to its original purpose.

Call of Cthulhu: The toughs feels the "pull" of the sea. Few things can force a hybrid to leave a coastal area. In addition, the thug will full a connection to nearby deep one communities. This pull must be resisted daily with a Will resistance check (DC 20).

The Innsmouth Look: Deep one hybrid toughs appear fish-like. They typically have scales, webbed fingers, and frog/fish/squidlike features, and/or gills. For this reason, many thugs wear clothing that will conceal their features and stick to the shadows.
