"Have you ever had a brush with death?
There exists in this world a balance between life and death which must constantly be maintained. This scale is extremely sensitive; if tipped even by a little, the world falls into chaos. Of course, this balance doesn't tip on its own. There are champions of death, cruel and ruthless people who believe this world is theirs for the taking. But good has its champions too.
That's where my team comes in: we’re here to protect and defend life. If you live in New York City, you’ve probably seen one of us without knowing it; me, Jiff, Ryde, Luz, Tami, Taxi, and Gray are in charge of keeping Manhattan in order. Our job isn't easy, but we were made for it. You see, while alive, we survived a series of tests called ""brushes"" with death exceptionally well—so, when we died, we were given another life, as well as a few other gifts. Super-strength. Speed. Invincibility. Senses unlike any other. And my favorite part: wings. We became part of an extraordinary team built to fight against evil—a job which has recently become a lot tougher.
They call us the Brushers."
