Background
Clan McLeod found its origins in the chaos known as World War II. Angus McLeod, who was known in Scotland as Witch Hunter, was the clans first Uberhuman. When the Ubermensch landed a small raiding party in Scotland to make a surprise attack on Winston Churchill, it was Witch Hunter who ferreted out their uber powers. All alone, Witch Hunter faced several Ubermensch, and even defeating the German powerhouse Iron Cross single-handedly.

When the call for the Liberty Legion went out, Witch Hunter refused to join. Angus was too much of an independent to become a part of the group. Instead he remained in Scotland, and safeguarded the country from outside threats.

After the war ended, Churchill again tried to recruit Angus into Majestic, but as before Witch Hunter refused. Angus was showing a marked dislike of the English, and retreated into the Scottish Highlands, where he retired at McLeod Manor. This would’ve been the last the world heard of the Witch Hunter, except for the fact that while he was retired from adventuring, his children became a different story.

In the 60’s the second generation of McLeod super-heroes took the floor in Scotland. This time it was Hamish McLeod, the only son of Angus. Hamish went by the nom de guerre of Tartan. Unlike his father, Hamish was a walking powerhouse. Tartan was super-humanly strong practically invulnerable. Hamish fought against threats to Scotland from the Soviets, who tried to use Scotland as a staging ground for attacks against England. Like his father before him, Tartan showed a marked dislike of the English, and later in his life became involved in the national movement in Scotland. He was known to clash with Majestic, and Knightwatch as well.

When Tartan retired in the ‘70s his daughter Rose came to the fore. She aided her father in his adventures, using the name Thistle. Her abilities to control plants were considered to be quite unique. This was also a time when drugs became more prevalent in Scotland. South American cartels were using Scotland against as a trans-shipment place for drugs going to Europe. Drug runners in Inverness gunned down Rose.

Tartan briefly returned to adventuring tracking down the men who killed Rose. It was in the wilds of Nepal that Tartan tracked down the man known as the General Cho. Aided by the mysterious Buddhist monk, Zhang Qian the pair put General Cho out of business. However, the strain of the battle was too much for Tartan, and the old man suffered a heart attack. It was Zhang who brought Hamish back to McLeod Manor. Zhang has stayed with the family ever since.

The next generation of Clan McLeod is Ian McLeod, who’s the son of Jessica a sister of Rose. Ian goes by the name of Ion. With him is his cousin Conner, who’s the son of Robert, another brother of Rose. Conner goes by the name of Creag. His sister Gail has powers over winds, and uses the name Gale. Another member is Jim “Jimmy” McLeod, who is Rose’s only child. Jimmy has inherited his great grandfathers’ uber-abilities. He goes also by the name of Witch Hunter. Finally there is Adrian McLeod, the only son of Hamish, who uses the name Hadrian. These super-heroes call themselves Clan McLeod. All of the younger generations of the McLeods look to their great grandfather Angus, who's in his nineties for direction.
Area of Operations
Clan McLeod typically operate in Scotland. They have been sanctioned by the Scottish Parliament, but have no standing in the south. However, this has never hindered the clan when fighting crime takes them south of Hadrian’s Wall. Of course such excursions with their southern neighbors has occasionally called for clashes between Majestic or Knightwatch and Clan McLeod. While Clan McLeod does feel that they’re part of the United Kingdom, they’re very much pro-Scotland.
Goals
Fighting crime is the favorite pastime of Clan McLeod. They see the entirety of Scotland as under their protection. Clan McLeod has a proud tradition of safeguarding Scotland, from their founder Angus all the way up to Jimmy. Not only does Clan McLeod fight crime, but also combats foreign super-villains thinking that taking over Scotland would be a cake walk.
Reputation
Clan McLeod is known through out the United Kingdom. They’re known for their independence from the south, even at times being disrespectful to the crown. However, when the United Kingdom has faced threats from abroad Clan McLeod has been there backing the super-heroes from Majestic and Knightwatch.

Clan McLeod is hated by T.I.T.A.N. because every time Sterling has made a move in Scotland the clan has countered him. Also Empire has little love for Clan McLeod. Before Empire took on it’s villainous bent, Thistle was a part time member.
