The Premiere Legal Office in the City, the 10 partners and horde of associates, form the most formidable legal operation in the city, if not the country. It is known for its ruthless prosecution and single minded hard hitting negotiation. Their defense attorneys are the bane of the local DA’s office.

Like all high end offices, it follows the money. Its stable of clients have all the high end corporate clients and embassies you would expect. They like the challenge of exotic cases, so they will take “interesting cases” on sliding scale (they never do probono, they will work for a single dollar though). Thus they will defend supervillians, work out super hero liable cases against the local press, work with the ACLU to protect mask laws, work with the INS for extraterrestrial citizenship and extradition, and things that would make a normal law firm turn away and run.

They are lawyers and they chucked their morals at the door. They are the most dangerous law firm in the city, if not the country, so do not cross them.

And they're all named for sharks.

Why don't sharks attack lawyers? Professional courtesy.

Why does the local bar association let the Sharks NHL team advertise in their quarterly... professional courtesy.

The names define much of their personality and adds to the feel of the organization.

Actually the descriptions of these guys are fun. Hammer has wide set eyes and a more triangular face. Mako is appears to be a young asian man and wears very slick suits. Lemon is a woman who often wears yellow. White is a huge bear of a man, grey/ white hair and nearly translucent skin. You get the ideas. Many of the lesser associates were also based off shark names. Except for Alissia Tale, she was a foxy young associate. (Equal opportunity you know).

For a less-subtle joke, you could make all of the full partners actual mutant sharks. Intelligent, predatory, and with a Juris Doctorate--this may have been what originally focused their area of expertise.

Except for the cute name, they really don't have anything going for them.

Shouldn't this be in the supers thread?

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
