~PHOENIX Files- Fierce fights beneath the southern city lights.~
From the city streets to City Hall, from the "All American City" of Fayetteville to the "City of Oaks", (Raleigh), North Carolina is rife with crime and corruption. Law enforcement, understaffed and overextended, do their best to stem the growth of violence and vice. But when they find themselves unable to break the case, they turn to a shadowy enterprise that utilizes the unique talents of the most gifted citizens among us: PHOENIX. The organization was founded in 1972 by Lt. J.T. "Phoenix" Pierce, a veteran of the Vietnam war and a proponent of the use of powers such as telekinesis, shape-shifting, and sorcery for the good of the people.
