Bleakers, Madmen, The Cabal

They deny that any belief system has any merit; as they see it, the universe has physical rules, but no metaphysical or philosophical ones, therefore any meaning in life must come from within. They are derived from real-life existentialists and nihilists.
The Bleak Cabal is not the same as The Cabal, though the two are closely related.
