Brockton Bay's biggest gang is Empire Eighty Eight, a Neo Nazi gang that requires you hurt a member of a minority as an initiation. On a lark, Hookwolf attacks a synagogue on Yom Kippur. Charlotte Morgenstern, a fresh trigger, decides to get revenge. Nimrod is about what happens to her and the city around her as she does it.

- Broken Pedestal: Melanie Fitts proves to be this to Charlotte.
- The Corrupter: Calvert can be seen as this.
- Karma Houdini: Coil and Charlotte both end the fic with no punishment for the mass murders they committed, save however they punish themselves.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Charlotte has a very minor version of this in the omake ending.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The plot of the fic.
