Baltimore is an independent city and the largest city and cultural center of the U.S. state of Maryland. The city is located in central Maryland along the tidal portion of the Patapsco River. One of the main fears of Baltimore is crime and homicide that happens there…earning it the nickname Bloodymore. The homicide rate in Baltimore is nearly seven times the national rate, six times the rate of New York City, and three times the rate of Los Angeles. The city is manned to fight this crime with the Baltimore Police Department as well as an undercover FBI office within the city limits.
The amount of Shadowkind living in Baltimore is only second to New York City, but the shadow who inhabit the largest city in Maryland tend to be much more malicious. A top secret organization called “Department 7” has set up a team in the city to help keep the shadowkind under control.
