Tales of Justice
League of Shadows
The League of Shadows was an ancient and powerful secret society created and perpetually run by Ra’s Al Ghul. The League’s stated purpose was to restore balance to the world by enacting purges at various points in history. They targeted places they deemed were the greatest sources of civilization’s corruption and decadence, places that led to suffering and injustice. Acting as a self-appointed check against human corruption for thousands of years, some of the previous activities of the League included the sacking of Rome, starting the Black Plague, the great London fire, and the Gotham economic depression.
The men who have sworn allegiance to the League of Shadows come from many different backgrounds; former soldiers, mercenaries, assassins, petty criminals, and ordinary men. However, all of them share a common similarity of hating what they define as evil and a desire to serve what they call true justice. Every member of the League of Shadows is fanatically loyal to the League’s cause. It is this fanaticism in which every warrior knows that he is expendable, his life forfeit, if it means fulfillment of the League’s plans. They are trained in the arts of theatricality and deception.
