The Coldest War
Pike’s Wall is the collapsed remains of an elevated viaduct that ran along Seattle’s waterfront. When the Esoterics started to prey upon Seattle in earnest, a powerful gang that had taken up residence in the ruins of Pike’s Place market organized an effort to collapse the remaining structure and fortify the wall of rubble as a defensive barrier.
Each year, the members of Pike’s Watch fortify the wall even more. Each year, the Esoterics manage to overrun at least one part of the wall.
