Spookhouse - officially known as the Domestic Supernatural Defense and Research League - is a secret government agency of the United States that studies and defends against paranormal phenomena domestically and internationally.

History[]

In 1898 during the Spanish-American war, Theodore Roosevelt had killed a werewolf in Cuba and spent considerable time before and during his presidency in the Caribbean, Latin America, and other spots around the world. From his experiences, he absolutely recognized (though never publicly decreed) the existence of paranormal forces and creatures in the world. He recognized the growing presence, and possible threat, of such creatures in the United States.

In 1902, President Roosevelt created a corps of Special Agents that conducted its operations outside the public eye. It answered only to the Executive office. Unnamed and unacknowledged, Roosevelt formed the branch to investigate crimes and potentially harmful phenomena involving the supernatural.

Roosevelt hand-picked scholars of the arcane, outcast scientists, shaman, witches, and monster hunters from all over the U.S. and its territories. They also summoned a carefully selected list of vampires, monsters, and other less well-defined beings to serve their country. Those who came forward were granted clemency, while those who refused were branded traitors and felons, and in keeping with Roosevelt’s “Big Stick” policy, were designated the first targets of the new agency, which was referred to by the President as “The Spookhouse.”
