It’s been thousands of years since the gods have openly interfered in human lives. In this time the Christian god has come to power and the old gods have been forgotten or been moved to the realms of myths. This is most unfortunate since proof has now been dropped on the world. From the seas, mountains, and sky the titan spawn have returned to free their great masters from Tartarus. The military can’t do anything to stop the great creatures without large scale mobilizations. The world is being pushed into panic. The Pantheons of the gods old and new have gotten together and sent the call to the scions to awaken to their destinies. For the First time in millennia since the great pharaohs and Hercules himself the children of the gods have returned to stop the titans from returning to plague the worlds of humans and gods.
In the time since the titans have returned many small towns have been destroyed or taken over. Washington Dc has been attacked dozens of times. Rome was destroyed by 2 great Wolves from the mountains. Tokyo is under constant assault from the sea to the point the beach has become a huge militarized zone. London is under the control of the titans completely after a dragon brought its spawn to assault the city and enslave the people. That’s not to say that life has changed all that much, it’s too much like World War 2. Certain parts of the world just go day to day and ignore the problems letting others deal with it. Most of America has managed to stay generally the same with the obvious culture changes such as military presence and the odd disappearance.
Along with the thousands of Machiavellian schemes of the gods the call of the titans has forced the scions to go back to action from all walks of life. It’s been 10 years though since the awakening. Humans know of the scions but they know of them in every way, the dark scions of Mikaboshi who cause chaos, the Light bringing scions of RA, even the evangelist scions of Jesus. Certain countries are trying to force the scions out and let them deal with it alone, others see them as gods themselves or superheroes, mostly America. In many areas though the scions try to find ways to fight the titan spawn incognito, they join the army, do it quickly and out of the cities, or they just wear a mask. This has created an odd culture of people pretending to be scions and scions who try to hide what they are while others pull insane stunts. This has been mitigated by the extreme rarity. Modern culture causes the actually really only a few hundred scions worldwide to be on YouTube every day. The famous scions Amun Shokah and Jason Dent draw so much media cover it helps the smaller ones go unknown for years.
This is where LA comes in; the city of fallen angels holds a few scions that deal with protecting the city that doesn’t want them there. Los Angeles has been damages dozens of times by less careful scions and the Titan spawn to the point that groups have been born to get them out of the city by any means necessary. Not to say they are hated though, the police just keep a close eye on them arresting (or try to) the ones that use their destructive powers openly and hunter groups try to destroy them with high powered weapons. The common man though still sees a scion with wonder since the average person is highly unlikely to ever meet one.
