I am a Manhunter. It's been two long, tedious years since the invasion. They came suddenly, like a thief in the night...it was all over by dawn's first light. I have no idea how the rest of the world is doing...outside communication has been suffocated.
All of us are required to wear the designated uniform, brown robes, and we must keep our faces hidden as much as possible. Above all else, we are not allowed to speak to each other. To do so would mean certain death.
Most have given up, for fear of the aliens with their powerful technology and deadly robots.
New York has been devastated. The invasion has taken its toll on the city, damaging many structures. Living conditions have steadily eroded. Vandalism has skyrocketed, and there is no longer any maintenance of the city or its streets. Most businesses have shut down; only a handful of small shops remain. The larger buildings in town have been boarded up or taken over by the Orbs. There are restrictions to traveling through the city, and most humans are not allowed out of their confined designated areas.

The Orbs have been working furiously since their arrival. It is like they are on a special mission of some sort. I have noticed significant changes in the atmosphere since their arrival. Strange, rotting odors permeate the air and an increasingly red tint has overtaken the skyline. The behavior of fellow humans has grown increasingly peculiar. It's all a mystery to me.

There are fewer people on the streets. All of my friends have disappeared, vanished into thin air. I have looked for them where I could...I mean, it's not like they had anywhere to go.
There are rumors floating on the street of a secret society. Humans who have banded together to drive the Orbs from New York. I have heard they thrive underground, where the tracking disks cannot read their signal.
The tracking disks were surgically implanted in the backs of our necks. It is now common knowledge that they Orbs have had trouble with these disks. Apparently the disks can only transmit the location, but not the identity of the user as expected. Thus, the need for Manhunters.

A select number of humans were chosen by the Orbs to become Manhunters. I have no idea how the selection was made or how I was chosen. Tomorrow is my first day on the job...and I have no clue as to my destiny. All they have told me is to read the "Manhunter's Field Guide" which they say will answer all of my questions...
