The Wormwood Symbol

The Tomas branch built a stronghold on Alcatraz Island and hid a Clue in the base of the lighthouse. For many years, the other branches tried to steal the Clue by taking control of the West. When the branches made particular towns too violent, there would always be people in black clothes (possibly Madrigals trying to stop the other branches from finding the Clue) arriving and make them too scared, creating ghost towns. The people in black also helped the Tomas protect the Clue.
