The Hunger is a group of Hedon fanatics that have a hunger for human flesh that cannot be sated by normal means. Oddly enough, human flesh satisfies the follower quite well and allows the hunger to subside for a time. This leads to the development of an Addiction to Human Flesh. Hunger alone can drive people to do insane things to feed themselves, the leadership makes use of that.
The leadership of the Hunger are ones that have managed to control the hunger and use it's strength to strong arm others to their cause but have developed more of a symbiotic relationship with the parasite and retain their coherency because of it. Making these individuals the most dangerous of them all. The ones whose bodies indulge frequently in large amounts of drugs, potent food and drink, or large doses of adrenaline from combat are ideal targets for the hunger.
Recently in Eden, the Hunger has been shown to be increasing in strength and numbers, most recently they have found a way to sabotage the faith of a few members of the council.Their leader was spotted by that night glowing with a red light that caused people to flee, the faith he demonstrated was much stronger then those of a normal priest.
Residents of Eden are concerned that if this threat isn't purged by the Spring Turning, the Voodoo Daddies and the Hunger might be more then Eden can handle.
