Evergreen Freehold

Though they tend to think of themselves managing the changelings of Western Washington, in practice the Evergreen Freehold mostly only manages to cover King and Snohomish Counties. Beyond that are vast swathes of small towns in the deep woods, with untold terrors lurking within. 

 

Fraternal Order of Crows

 

This two-story brick building in old Ballard is allegedly owned by a fraternal organization that doesn't seem to recruit at all. The first floor has meeting space that can be rented out, while the second floor is used by the freehold as a commons for local Lost. It includes small clusters of seating for informal meetings. This furniture is usually pushed back for larger assemblies of the freehold. In the back is a bunkroom for short-term lodging. 

 

The Clinic Closet

Through a door marked "Storage" in the back of Rowan's veterinary closet is a small Hollow. Jacob lives there full time, but the others in the motley can access it when they need to. With the combined efforts of various members of our motley, thus far the Hollow has become a rather secure, fairly good sized and comfortable safe abode.

Other Supernaturals

Compared to some place like New York or Los Angeles, the greater Seattle area isn't that big. It has a notably large changeling population compared to other cities, with tales of things from other worlds coming to prey upon mortals long before Europeans showed up at Alki Beach. But it's 

 

Vampires

They are most commonly spotted prowling the bars in Belltown, Pioneer Square and Broadway. There they prey upon the drunk revelers. There are maybe a dozen or so vampires that are regulars and known to the Freehold. The leader of the Vampires, according to Liz, is called the Night Mayor.

 

Werewolves

Though there are stories of them stalking through the wilderness and smaller towns, there don't appear to be many in Seattle proper. Persephone's boyfriend is one of six members of the Sea Dog Pack that lives on a houseboat on Lake Union.. There is also a Church of the Silver Cross in Issaquah which has an unknown number of werewolves opposed to Dmitri and the Sea Dog Pack.

 

Mages

There's a wide range of magic-wielding mortals of varying types and power levels, from people dabbling occultists to scary people who can bend reality. The lower-powered and the much higher volume of posers are clustered in the "White Light District" near 65th and Roosevelt, mostly magicking money out of New Age hipsters. The more powerful sorts are seen less often and their headquarters are not known. Some, however, seem to have a hard-on for Arcadia and have an interest in the Lost. There at least a couple mages known to the Freehold that are sniffing around for information about the fae. 

 

Angels

 

The Homeland Security office in Seatac has at least a few entities that are allegedly angels serving a "God Machine." 

 

Mummies

 

Panya Jefferson is said to be an immortal entity from the Nile region. She is served by AER (Advanced Engineering and Research), an international consulting firm. There are no other known mummies permanently residing in the area. 

 

Ghosts

Though they don't exactly have a community, any place can end up haunted, the most haunted part of Seattle is around Pioneer Square and the waterfront. This tends to attract a weird assortment of supernaturals that interact with the dead. This includes a few mages, one vampire, one werewolf (from the Lake Union group), and maybe a dozen mediums of some sort.
