The First Police Purge was the destruction of the entire order of police. The massacre occurred in 1994, during the First NoHead War. It was carried out by Mr. Stupid NoHead, whose actions left the police in ruin. Sheriff Bladepoint and the other police went into exile for years before they finally regained their crown after ten years.
During the First NoHead War, Mr. Crooked NoHead made use of his alliance with the Giants and werewolves. Government soldiers fought hard to maintain resistance during the Invasion of Manhattan, which was fronted by Giants that supported the NoHeads. Many lost their lives and entire tribes of Giants were wiped out until, finally, the beasts retreated and went into hiding.
After the Giants’ defeat, the tide of the war began to turn. Mr. Horrendous NoHead and his wife, Mrs. Disturbing NoHead, met their ends at the hands of police officers, now given permission by the government per an edict from the office of Katie Black to employ murder against bystanders if the situation called for it. Many townspeople also met their ends while bravely trying to face NoHeads, such as the father of Roxanne.
Mr. Odious NoHead, a young NoHead, became disenchanted with the NoHeads’ cause and attempted to destroy the metal tube, resulting in the NoHeads attempting to kill him over their hard-won prize and him Apparating to Suzie’s Island in Oceania. This act would later play a key role in the attack on Suzie’s Base.
The Destruction of the PoliceEdit
Following this, Mr. Stupid NoHead went to the police station, where he proceeded to destroy all the police inside it. However, Bladepoint and Zett managed to survive the purge, along with a handful of others. During the purge, Casey Tartus suffered a breakdown and fled in terror from the station, leaving his peers and his students to die. He escaped New York in a nondescript freighter with several robot prototypes in tow.
This pivotal event put an apparent end to the First NoHead War, though it would later continue in 2010. The surviving police went into hiding afterwards. However, the police spent that time training new members and Bladepoint kept the police up on their training. In time, the police returned to strength and efficient numbers. They remained hidden in the police station, waiting until the time was right to plot their next move. In 2010, they immediately launched a deep strike into the NoHead base, destroying it and revealing they were back.
