The Lonely Hearts is an organization first seen in the Dying Man Verse whose intentions are mostly classified. It is a branch of the Supernatural Threat Analysis Bureau, and its real name is held under lock and key. Its codename was based off of the Beatles song "The Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
The organization is known for its use of a ritual known as Sowing Season, in which a human's connections to a particular Fear can be broken with minor side effects.
The Lonely Hearts was created by the Rivers family to try and control the Fears. As stated by Peter Rivers, it is possible to kill a Fear, although the organization has never been successful in doing so. The Lonely Hearts are currently dealing with a crazed mad man named Maxwell, who wishes to bring a new Fear into the world via a silver pocketwatch. The Lonely Hearts are also rivals with the Timberwolves, and the Timberwolves are planning to overthrow them soon.
Unlike most organizations dealing with fears, The Lonely Hearts have know apparent code-naming system.
