Monster Hunter International - Texas Division
MCB – Monster Control Bureau. A very secret branch that is now under the heading of Home Land Security. The special agents are giving a lot of in-the-field discretion and very little oversight. The primary mission is to keep the knowledge of monsters under tight control. A distant secondary goal is the eradication of monsters and protecting American citizens from direct harm.
MHI – Monster Hunter, International. MHI is a private, for-profit organization that collects paychecks for the removal of monsters. Primarily, they are paid by the US government through PUFF payments (see PUFF entry). A secondary income is derived from private organizations with monster problems. While it is tough to recruit without violating their non-disclosure permit, special individuals are often recruited after surviving attacks. Considered (at least by themselves) the premier group in the industry.
PUFF – Perpetual Unearthly Forces Fund. This fund was created by Theodore Roosevelt to pay private citizens for dispatching monsters on the PUFF list. Checks are issued from the treasury department.
