Les Introuvables are mythical creatures (witches, dragons, elves, centaurs, goblins, ghosts, sea monsters, etc.) known by all, but seen by no one. There are thousands of these fantastical beings on Earth, but they have to hide their true natures from us poor humans. If we found out we were living among otherworldlings, we’d surely become frightened and confused! I mean, who wants to live in a world full of real monsters? Les Introuvables would be in great danger if they revealed themselves. They’d be hunted down, attacked, turned into lab rats, and would face other fates too horrible to image.
And yet they’re everywhere: at the movies, in hotels, at restaurants, in schools, on construction sites… and they don’t bother anyone! To make it in our world, these lovable creatures try to appear as “normal” as possible. They disguise themselves, blend in with the crowd, and use their powers to shapeshift as best they can.
They’re adorable and peaceful, and wouldn’t hurt a fly! Well, most of them wouldn’t. Unfortunately, there are a few bad apples in the bunch. The biggest ones are the red demons, who go around on two legs and love to make a mess of things. They’re happy when everything is going wrong and delight in sowing chaos.
Ophelia the mermaid, Adam the vampire, and Douglas the yeti—the three heroes in our story—are best pals who live together in an apartment that’s specially made for these very special lodgers.
Along with the risks of being mythical creatures who have to stay hidden, les Introuvables must grapple with a villain who is out for revenge. Indeed, Marcus Lajoie has seethed with hatred for our heroes ever since they wiped out part of his life.
