A to Z of Grave New World 2016: S is for Samhain
Samhain is a terrorist organization of psychics and Inhumans who actively seek to turn Alaska into a sovereign country, separate from the United States. The group was founded in 1989 after the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Its founding members include the Booth Family, the Seward and Wendigo vampire nests, eleven packs of therianthropes, and six tribes of sasquatch.
Alaska, due to its environment, large tracts of land, and privacy has long been the home of a disproportionate number of Inhumans than any other state in the Union, even ignoring their aboriginal presence. While the Alaskan Pipeline had long been a source of protest by both environmental and Inhuman activists, some found the oil spill created by the Exxon Valdez to be the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak.
It was to this end that Cyrus and Ethel Booth began networking with other Inhumans and psychics in the state, so that by October 1989 Samhain was born. Initially they wanted the pipeline shutdown and Exxon expelled from the state. However, after several murders that Samhain said were committed by civilian security contractors hired by Exxon, the organization turned to darker activities.
Through the 90's and early 21st century Exxon and other industries that were found to be partnered with the oil company were targeted 22 times by Samhain, resulting in seventeen deaths.
In 2011, Byron Booth even claimed to have official proof that the U.S. government was complicit in Exxon's crimes and provided agents to aid them in their efforts to shutdown Samhain. Sadly, Byron was shot and killed while being interviewed by Geraldo Rivera, by an "unknown assailant".
Byron's murder prompted Samhain to begin negotiations and gain funding by Russia after Angela Booth and Sedrick Colum personally negotiated with Vladimir Putin. While the U.S. State Department denies Russia's allegiance with Samhain, Putin simply smiles when asked about the organization.
Sadly, most of the media outlets ignore coverage of the war zone that Alaska has become due to its separation from the rest of the Union and directives by government and corporate interests to carefully edit what is going on.
