The Outsiders are a cult that originally acted as enforcers of Misery, they are each empowered by one of the Dark Ones - making them in many ways servants of the entire Dark One pantheon (though they saw themselves as loyal solely to Misery - under her guise as the "Dark Spirit"). Following the events of Shadow of Death they have become loyal to Evil - an alliance that they continue to keep even after the return of Misery proper in Necessary Evil.
Kerava and Torment have both managed to provide Misery with sufficient "allies" that the loss of The Outsiders to Evil is not considered a major setback - though with their new alliance comes an "upgrade" as well as loss of patronage with the Dark Ones.
The Outsiders returned in Aspects, however they were currently "shades" and thus greatly weaker than what they were originally - upon defeat by Ruby and Deathwalker they were returned to "limbo" once again (in reality a special Misery Zone).
The Outsiders number seven in total and are each based upon one the Seven Deadly Sins, as mentioned above each one was originally empowered by a Dark One but viewed themselves as loyal only to Misery - now that they are agents of Evil they no longer have the patronage of any Dark Ones and are all empowered exclusively by Evil herself (save for Sloth, who still retains his patronage due to Rot's unique stance on Evil).
