Serpent Brotherhood (they were behind the riots in Alexandria)
The Serpent referred to in the Brotherhood's name is the serpent who brought knowledge to Adam and Eve. It was a splinter group of Librarians that split while the Library was still in Alexandria. They wished to use the power of the artifacts to rule the world, and wage secret war against the Librarians, who try to stop them. The Serpent Brotherhood were behind the riots that destroyed the first, Alexandrian Library.

Scorpion League (time traveling ninjas)

Vampires (Judas was the first)


Location and Security:
Located under the Metropolitan Public Library
Entrance is located in a small reading room off Charlene's office
Removing Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream from the shelf opens the door to the elevator
Two people turning keys are required to open the elevator (the army got it from them)
Armed guards in grey uniforms with submachine guns are located at the top and bottom of the elevator
A security fail-safe only allows time to take one item, assuming you can break in
Excalibur is both very playful once he likes you and very protective of the Library
