The Undercity is not remotely a very nice place to live, or even to pass through.

Existing quite literally under the shining glory of San Angeles Undercity is shrouded in near perpetual darkness. Life in Undercity is cheap, the police only venturing there in force and often only if they can get support from the First Metahuman, Freedom Brigade, or National Guard.

The remains of the various towns and suburbs and even bits of old LA and San Diego lay underneath San Angeles, and these ruins form the core of Undercity. The terrain is difficult at best, and nigh impassible at worst with a definite warzone atmosphere prevalent in the dark squallor.

The Undercity is home to some of the most vicious gangs on Earth, and lots of homeless that can't afford to live anywhere else.

Despite the poverty it is possible to survive in Undercity, the local inhabitants having a sense of community of sorts. No matter how grievous their issues with each other the bitterest of enemies will band together to face a common foe, be it a genetic horror spawned in The Spill, or an incursion by Law Enforcement in pursuit of a metacriminal.

Rumors abound about black ops missions to Undercity, or that various government agencies or corporate entities have secret and illegal research facilities hidden in the ruins. There are several super villains and criminal organizations that call Undercity their home, but none of this is easily verified or otherwise substantiated.

Gangs in Undercity have very colorful names like Reapers, Rippers, Talons, or the largest group, the Fallen Angels. Many of the gangs have metahumans among their numbers, and the competition for resources is fierce and often bloody.

Law Enforcement is content to let the Undercity stew in its own juices for the most part, but that tolerance is swiftly dispelled when problems below spill over into San Angeles proper.

Undercity has seven regions of note: The Dump, The Spill, Lost Angeles, The Bleak Market, The Waste, Saint Jim, and The Restoration.
