In the near future, after the scheming of rival pantheons nearly results in a world war, international courts make it
illegal for gods to interfere in the lives of men and order all supernatural deities grounded. As the power and
existence of these deities is granted by humans, the gods must reluctantly agree. The seedy, crime-ridden Kings
Cross district of Sydney offers asylum, so long as they obey human law.
Most gods have little power left, having lost their followers centuries ago, and must take on menial jobs. Other
deities, flush with popularity, quickly rise to positions of influence. Some feel compelled to help humans and take
positions in law enforcement, whereas others go underground and become criminals. The God Squad is an elite
unit of detective deities who are responsible for solving crimes that involve any of the fallen gods.
