History: Special Unit 2 (S.U.2) is one of Chicago Police Department's biggest secrets. Founded to deal with cases involving "Links", supernatural beings who are believed to have evolved from the missing link between men and animals, they deal with the bizarre, the unexplained and the unusual. Though other cops are aware there is a SU2, they don't know what it does, where it is based, or (in most cases) even what the initials stand for - they just find them annoying for their propensity to come on the scene and take over without explanation. Operatives are recruited from police detectives who have stumbled across Links and survived, and tend to be resourceful in the extreme - which you have to be to stay alive when dealing with dragons, mermen, werewolves and other monsters on a day-to-day basis.
