As early as 1925, it was known as the North Los Angeles Cabal. They were only of minor interest to Faction Paradox, considered more of a Remote colony. John Selzner was a prominent member of the Cabal in the 1930s. They started using the more business-friendly name Faction Hollywood in the 1980s after Michael Brookhaven rose to power. Their influence declined following Brookhaven's disappearance in 1999 after the release of Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom.
