Community is close knit despite the separation of the islands. They regularly meet, scout out the mainland, and patrol their borders. They are near a UDF factory and must be hyper vigilant. In early 2014 they suffered a tragedy regarding the population of three of their islands. All 82 residents of the islands were lost to infection. As of Autumn 2014, they have not been able to declare the islands safe. Only 42 of the infected residents are accounted for and disposed of, leaving half of the infected still roaming the property. They have plans to clear the islands as soon as possible.
