New Delphi is one of the last remaining cities in the Cradle. Purported to be a city with no laws, no set customs and very little organized government, New Delphi has drawn a motley collection of outcasts, criminals, loners and “independent spirits.” With fish and farmland plentiful, a sustenance living can, in theory, be accomplished. But the loose settlement offers its “citizens” little in the way of safety—from the angels or their New Delphi neighbors. Without police, courts, or law, disputes in New Delphi are settled with fists, knives and guns. In season 2, it is revealed that Julian is the city's leader.
