Synopsis:
Tired of living in Limbo, 5 souls who are too bad to go to Heaven but too good to go to Hell make a deal with Odious Kamodious: go to Earth and secure human souls for Satan and they will be released from Limbo. Of course, corrupting humans for Satan will assure them a place in Hell. So Pristine, a guardian angel with a mean streak, watches over the team to make sure they only help people. On Earth the five -- Brian Bluedragon, Dezire, Kuga, Dr. Mordius, and Hard Luck Harrigan -- are joined by Frightful, a demon from Hell, to help in their assignments. The six then take up residence in Club Inferno, a posh nightclub/bar/dive that exists in any city in the world.
