Overview

The Cabal is one of the factions native to Croatoa. This all-female group of sorceresses never seems to leave the area and has been fighting the evil Red Caps for a long time. In City of Heroes, The Cabal range between levels 25 and 35 and only in Croatoa. Although found all over Croatoa, The Cabal seem to be based in Sunset Ridge. In City of Villains this group cannot be found.

Initiate

Initiate

For some, magic comes naturally, while others may take centuries to master it. Cabal Initiates are still learning the ways of the winds. Their powers are meager, and so they arm themselves with daggers. Over the years they have become quite skilled in their use.

Adept

Cabal Adept

Though their skills are minimal in comparison to those of their leaders, Cabal Adepts have learned to summon hot lightening into their fists. After centuries of training for this feat, many Adepts are shocked to find that it is actually quite painful. Of course, after so many years spent battling the Red Caps, pain is nothing they can't handle.
