La Colonia de Sombras
A Shadowy District of Heroic Immigrants and Meso-American Horrors
Every city needs immigrants, and the City is no exception. Step into La Colonia: a bustling Latin immigrant district pumping new blood throughout the City, delivering bodies (and souls) where they are needed to maintain, service, and build.
La Colonia de Sombras is a District divided between the dark machinations of Tío Tez, the crime kingpin (Tezcatlipoca, Aztec god of rulership and discord) who runs the show in La Colonia, and the mysterious masked luchadora (Kukulkan, Mayan Feathered Serpent) who calls herself Águila de Plata, The Silver Eagle, who is set on eliminating his criminal empire.
