The 21st Street Mission has existed for as long as anyone can recall, and just as long by Terri Vinterbäras, a beautiful, caring, and optimistic dreamer who feels that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, and that anyone who needs help, should be given it.
The Mission provides refuge to many, food for plenty, and a place to sleep in times of need. Among the mundanes of New York, it is known as a beacon of Hope and Charity. Among the supernatural crowd, the Mission is known as a haven from the darker things in the world, for the Mission has several protections.
The first protection is the Mission counts as Holy Ground, and gives all the benefits of such a site.
Second, is the Mission is fiercely protected by the ghost of Edith Keeler, the woman who founded and ran the mission in the 1920’s, until she tragically died in a car accident outside the mission’s door. Ms. Keeler, like Terri, was known as a beautiful and caring woman, an optimistic dreamer, who foresaw a future of peace and prosperity for all mankind. Unknown to any, including Ms. Keeler, she was also the host for the remaining power of the Iroquois deity, Atahensic, the Goddess of Peace. Upon her tragic death, this power melded with her fleeing spirit and formed a ghost of enormous power, dedicated to protecting the Mission and those within it’s walls.
