The Doom Mimes are the secret police of the Monster Rangers. They are easy to identify because of their antique Mime masks, striped sleeves, and Mime Badge.
Have no illusions, the Doom Mimes are no clowns.
They are the “fixers”, “assisting” troubled Barrows, “advising” lackadaisical Rangers in danger of losing their Membership, “dealing” with Branch conflicts and Ranger bullies, and making particularly dangerous Monsterologists “disappear.” Some call these mysterious masked Rangers “assassins” though that is certainly not the word they would use. Many consider them the most dangerous Branch, though it’s debatable, since their true number are not public knowledge.
This Sect of the Monster Rangers is special because membership is invite-only; experienced, tough and highly respected Rangers are the only ones ever invited to join. Membership is also secret; their “true” day-to-day persona are never revealed, and each is always “Officer #13.”
