Pride & Prejudice & Assassinations
It is the early 19th Century and the Darcy family has been tasked with upholding the ideals of the nobility and gentry. Should a member of high society seriously transgress those ideals, the Darcy household will take action to correct the error.
"...You shall not be allowed another opportunity to transgress against society, morality, and God.”
-Fitzwilliam Darcy More
The world was changing rapidly in the early part of the 19th century. Lapses in honour and integrity amongst the French gentry had led to an uprising within their country; which in turn led to the rise of such individuals as Napoleon.
Industry, and movements in wealth amongst the common man, also threatened the ideals of the country, as many an individual could now move amongst the social classes as never before encountered.
Power, and corruption amongst the higher levels of society, further revealed cracks to the ideals for which the English Nobility had endeavored so strenuously to uphold.
Not oblivious to these threats, the highest order had tasked the Darcy family with the responsibilities to uphold the integrity of English society. Should a nobleman or member of the gentry transgress those ideals, or come to harm the innocent,the Darcy family would deal with it accordingly.
The English citizenry should not fear the Gentry, the Gentry should fear the citizenry; and should the Gentry or Nobility error to the extreme, they would learn to fear Darcy.
