Penance is a mysterious organization based out of New York City. It is comprised of nine members. The members of Penance operate largely independently of one another, though they seem to share a common, enigmatic goal. Each member of Penance has a potent Supernatural Ability, classifying each of them as an Alpha Threat.
Not much is known about how Penance was first established, though it seems to have sprung up relatively recently, as its current leader, Virgil Gray, is also its first. Diamond Darling is also confirmed as being the most recent member to join the organization, having done so in January, 2013.
