* BlackMagic: This is the Cabalists' [[PlanetOfHats Hat.]] The Cabal as such formed during or after the invasion, but it's made up of the same sort of fringe scientists and arcane scholars that have been hanging around for centuries. [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy Famous proto-Cabalists]] include IsaacNewton, UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla and Creator/AleisterCrowley. The Cabal want humanity to progress to something called "The Awakening", [[EvolutionaryLevels an evolutionary breakthrough]] brought about by demonic power.

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Cabalists use the powers of the demons against them, though they claim to be on the side of good and have often proven themselves as such. Evokers use their offensive magics, and Summoners create elementals and enslave demon minions. Many regular humans distrust them, [[ChurchMilitant especially the]] [[TheKnightsTemplar Templars.]]

* TheKnightsTemplar: According to the BackStory [[HesJustHiding they've been been hiding all this time,]] [[WhoYouGonnaCall acting as a demon-busting service]] while maintaining a {{Masquerade}} that understandably [[IncrediblyLamePun went to hell]] when the invasions began. They went public pretty fast after that. They've upgraded their tech a bit, employing PoweredArmor and such alongside their [[HolyHandGrenade holy magics.]]

* DevilInDisguise: The story's narrator / hero's sidekick Murmur turns out to be [[spoiler: the Duke of Hell with the same name]]. To be fair, the name's a lot more subtle that Lou Cypher, and isn't likely to mean anything to players without a background in demonology mythology/MegaTen fan.
