In Brief: Multi-Armed Aquatic Battle suit with Stealth Powers. Comic Examples: I mean basically doc-oc/Ironman. Alternate Identity: Birthplace: Burlington, Vermont. Residence: Freedom City Occupation: "Appliance Repair" Affiliations: Family: Family back in Vermont. Mother: Hellan Wilson-Callas. (Professor of Political Science; University of Vermont) Father: Mark Callas. (Deceased; Detective Burlington Police Department) Sister: Mary Callas-Taylor. (Professor of Political Science; University of Vermont) Description: Name: Oliva Callas. Identity: Secret.Age: 26.Gender: Female.Ethnicity: Caucasian. (Ethnically Greek)Height: 5'2"Weight: 108lbs.Eyes: BlueHair: Platinum Blonde (Dye) History: Oliva was born and largely raised in and around the University of Vermont, her mother being a professor of Political Science and her father being on of the Burlington Police Departments lead Detectives, the balance of small town life and academia being a rather pleasant upbringing for her. Both she and her sister proved to be very gifted student even from a young age getting along with most everyone around her with only a few snags grow and the two of them Graduating high school a few years ahead of time. Indeed her life was more or less ideal until a cold January day, her father take time to drop his two daughters off at the university for orientation in the morning before heading into work. The three where just pulling out of the drive way when one car cut them off almost hitting them. Another pulling up besides them gunfire erupting from inside the car and showering there fathers police cruiser with a hail of bullets before the two vehicles pulled away. The next thing that Olivia knew she woke up in a hospital undergoing severed for a severed Vina Cava, perforated bowl and damage to the spinal column. She was soon put under as the doctors finished up a extensive seventeen our battery of medical procedures. Finally when she did come back around she was informed that her father had been pronounced dead on the scene. Most of the gunfire being directed at him through the drivers side window, the bullets hitting her lower on the body. And her older sister who had been sitting in the back seat was at the very least physically unhurt. The community was shocked by the act of violence in the normally placid city. And Olivia got to watch the cities sorrow quickly turn into a media circus as first investigators and then the media started to uncover extensive evidence that members of the cities police department including her father where taking extensive brides and where themselves involved in a myriad of criminal activities. And indeed when one and then two of the men involved in the shooting where captures they testified that the shooting had been ordered by high ups in a criminal gang involved in the smuggling of narcotics from ports in New York and up across the boarder into Canada. Her father having taken a large set of brides the prior year to insure that a member of the gang got off on charges being filed against him, but he has either through inability or unwillingness to break rules and laws to the extent needed failed. The combination of the physical trauma, exhaustion from physical rehabilitation and the constant media attention start to take its toll on Olivia and on being released from the Hospital, now mostly confined to a wheel chair only able to stand with assistance and a great deal of pain she chose to alter her plan of attending university in state. She after all could get a scholarship almost anywhere with her academic performance. Instead choosing to attend University in upstate New York at Cornell University. While her Grade where still exemplary her relationship with her mother and sister started to become strained the two of them standing by her deceased father even as the evidence against him became damning. Olivia coped by throwing herself into her studies while simultaneously starting to drink. A behavior that almost lead to her being expelled from the university and a charge of drinking while under-aged. Most likely costing her the position on the deans list. She graduated three years later withe a degree in Mechanical Engineering before heading strait into a graduate program. By this point the trail and media attention had died off and her mother and sisters relationship with her had largely recovered. This was also the time in her life where she had her first romantic involvement starting to date one of her fellow graduate students. One William Howard Sherman, heir to Sherman-Day industries. While some of the relationship could be written down to her being eighteen and Sherman being attractive, rich and charismatic, the fact of the matter was that Sherman was a caring, affectionate and almost doting partner, and the relationship also lead into her first job. So at the age of twenty fresh out of university with a degree in Mechanical Engineering she started to work at the Freedom city research and development branch of Sherman-Day Industries. Quickly becoming a important lead in the companies robotics department and becoming the lead contributor to a program who's stated aim was for a search and rescue. The program nicknamed "Cuttlefish" was for a underwater diving suite capable of both enhanced mobility and extracting oxygen from the water itself. Olivia being brought into the program to 'fix' a number of issues already built into the suit. That coupled with the well known information that she was dating the CEO's son didn't make her many friends, getting her the reputation as "teachers pet" in the often cut throat field of research and development. But her progress on the project was undeniable. Both her and Sherman's professional careers taking off quickly as he started to take on more and more of his fathers duties becoming CEO in all but name in a matter of months. However there relationship also stared to strain as time went on, he was never abusive, either physical or emotionally. But now that they where both in Freedom city be did become more and more domineering, and demanding both professional and personally. Her position as the girlfriend of a billionaire philanthropist clearly came with obligations that she wasn't always comfortable or physically able to easily keep. And the companies direction under William's leadership started to cause friction as first parts and then entire projects started to be redirected to military and weapons applications. The Cuddlefish suit clearly being reworked for at the very last military use was bad enough. And when she was instructed to out and out weaponize the suit she had finally drawn the line. Refusing to work on the suit and finally quieting her job and breaking off her relationship with William. And she left with a good amount of the programs data and work as well as some rather expensive mechanical and robotic pieces of the prototype, intent on not giving over her work with full knowledge that she was legal liable for taking it. She wasn't totally surprised however when no legal action was taken. After all "Billionaire has wheel chaired bound ex-girlfriend thrown in jail" Would be a hard RP sell to say the least. She was however surprised when she found that William was still paying for her living expenses. She at one point thought about filing for a restraining order, but she both knew that Sheman had a lot of political pull and that it would likely only escalate a otherwise awkward but not currently hostile situation. But a few months later she moved to a cheaper part of town, setting up shop making a modest living repairing appliances and mechanical equipment. And starting to prolonged program of tinkering with and altering the few pieces of the prototype that she had 'taken with her' The intent being to try and develop some sort of mobility assistant system for herself. Which she as rather successful with, The only issue being the size of the system. Simply not having the monetary of scientific support that she had at Sherman-Day. While in her new location in the city she did start to make new business connections and even friends. Her next door neighbor being rather helpful from time to time and even starting to associate as friends. The women having first met Olivia when she came into have repairs made to a piece of equipment. Her neighbor Christine was about her age and at first told her that she worked in Private Investigation after having been a deputy police officer in her home down in Pennsylvania for two years. But the extensive collection of devices that Olivia found herself fixing and then altering for Christine made it clear that the women was involved something else. When finally pressed on the matter almost three yeas later. Christine having asked Olivia to combine a number of optical devices into a helmet for her, Christine admitted that her work was far more extensive then 'detective work' Olivia had been both directly and indirectly fixing and making equipment for a small group of costumed crime fighters. Indeed to equipment was being used both directly and indirectly by a number of heroes. This knowledge however seamed to rekindle a spark of creativity for her. Her work on both her own project and her friends improving greatly. And a few months later she unveiled to Christine fully working if not rather rough looking mechanical suit that amount more or less to five hundred pounds of metal and Kevlar along with the power system to run it for about three hours, the system was put to good use by her friend in short order. And this too led into improvement on her own project the three or four pieces of the cuddlefish suit she had taken with her starting to look more and more like the prototype back at Sherman-day's labs. With improvements and alternations. Olivia had made up her mind, this was going to be her suit and she was going to follow her friends example. She was going to be a hero. With equipment as well as money "Gathered from Criminals" The suit quickly started to take shape. The heavy armored frame of Sherman-Days suit being rebuilt as a lighter armored suit. With the life support system beefed up and the propulsion system a kind of helical propeller slowly developing into a collection of mechanical tentacles protruding from a back unit. She also started to incorporate some of the technology she was being asked to fix and make for other heroes. Adding a optical cloaking system to the suit late in its development. Ironically she had to shave out the exoskeleton supports for the legs in the suit. meaning that the only way for her to actually move herself while in the suit was with the Tentacles. All the while still helping with other heroes devices as well as improving the suit of her friend. Personality & Motivation: Olivia is argumentative and can be quite confrontational, but is also rather playful and friendly, it would be easier and more polite to say that she simply doesn't suffer fools well. Her motivations are a complicated matter, she has a strong sense of right and wrong, but also a rather cynical outlook on justice. She respects the law but doesn't really trust the system. And it would not be totally incorrect to say that she wants to be a hero because of her fathers likely involvement in criminal activities and corruption. Powers & Tactics: A powerful intellect is Olivia's real power. But the suit helps. Powerful Mechanical tentacles. Armored frame. Sensors. Life Support and Optical Camo making the suit a very versatile system. Power Descriptions: The Cufflefish: Originally intended as a underwater search and rescue suit the armor consists of a exoskeleton suit that provides both physical protection in the way or a armored suit made of a mixture of Kevlar, neoprene, Twaron and UHMWPE materials, holding armored plates made from tungsten, depleted uranium and titanium. The suit also provides life support in the form of stored air, a filtration system and a nanite tank that extracts air from water. The suits power system is located on the back. And is also the mounting location for the Cuttlefish's "propulsion" system. A Round housing with five arms protruding from it in a star shaped pattern, with one arm at roughly the location of the users arms and legs as well as one located around the location of the head of the user. The mechanical arms being made of armored segmented sections able to telescope in on themselves to give changing lengths. And ending in a rounded almost suction cup like end, with a collection of five 'fingers' at the end. And allowing the user to move around there environment. The entire housing of the arms is also able to turn, allowing the arms to be used as a kind of helical screw propeller underwater. Then entire system has a built in advanced sensor sweet including cameras and sensors on the arms and helmet. As well as vibration and pressure sensors allowing the user to detect the movement of objects and creatures around them both the ground and in water. And the entire harness and armed system is covered in a reactive cell structure that can be used to change the color of the suit to better blend into it's environment. Complications: Disability: Olivia is more or less incapable of walking without assistance. Normal Identity. Complicated Relationship: Olivia's relationship with her former boyfriend is complicated to say the very least. Not quite antagonistic but clearly not a friendly one. He has legal dirt on her and very clearly still feels like she is his to some extent. Not even considering the information that he himself has access to much of her work.

  3. Upgrade Power Level: PL10, 150/160PP. Trade-Offs: -1 Attack, +1 Damage; -1 Defense, +1 Toughness. Unspent Power Points: 10 In Brief: An agent of AEGIS pilots a walking tank in defense of truth, justice and the American Way. Residence: Freedom City. Base of Operations: Lonely Point Navel Base. Catchphrase: “It's time for a little shock and awe.” Alternate Identity: Ethan Stone. Identity: Classified. Birthplace: Eglin Air Force Base (roughly three miles away from Valparaiso, Florida). Occupation: AEGIS agent tasked with piloting the XO-9 Armored Mobility Platform. Affiliations: The USAF, AEGIS, DARPA and the DoD. Family: Meryl Stone (wife), Lilly Stone (daughter). Description: Ethan Stone is a tall, athletic man with bright blue eyes, cropped black hair and an easy smile. When on duty as Upgrade he pilots the XO-9 Armored Mobility Platform, an enormous powered exoskeleton designed to showcase all of the very latest in American experimental weapons technology. Age: 35. Apparent Age: Mid-thirties. Gender: Male. Ethnicity: Caucasian. Height: 6’1”. Weight: 185bs. Eyes: Blue. Hair: Black. Power Descriptions: The XO-9 AMP has been equipped with a staggering array of cutting-edge weaponry, nearly impenetrable armored plating, reactive defenses, strength augmentation, supersonic flight and an autonomous repair system – all powered by a uniquely compacted LFTR thorium reactor. History: Seven years ago USAF pilot Ethan Stone was shot down over enemy territory and spent three weeks trapped behind enemy lines. Despite overwhelming odds he managed to evade capture, sabotage multiple enemy installations and eventually commandeer the aircraft with which he made his escape. His escapade resulted in a recruitment offer from AEGIS and his competency there made him worthy to serve his nation in a new way: as the pilot of the XO-9, soon to be known to the world as Upgrade. Personality & Motivation: Ethan has dreamed of flying since he was a very small child and his choice of a career in the Air Force was no surprise. Fittingly, Ethan has a light, breezy personality that is backed by a steely, patriotic determination to see things through. As Upgrade he serves as equal parts a superhero and piece of living propaganda designed to show the common American that their government doesn't have to rely on supernatural powers: a man and his machine are more than enough. Powers & Tactics: Although Ethan doesn't have supernatural powers of his own, he is a highly skilled agent of AEGIS and his training makes him more than a match for most mundane opponents. As Upgrade he has access to an indestructible war-machine equipped with state of the art weapons. In combat Upgrade will position his substantial bulk between his enemies and any noncombatants in the area before attempting to overcome his foes with all of the force afforded to him by superior firepower. Complications: Accident: The XO-9 is more of a vehicle than a suit and its size can be disadvantageous. Honor: As propaganda, Upgrade is expected to conduct himself in a way befitting of a hero. Responsibility: Upgrade's actions are beholden to the whims of the Department of Defense.

Personality & Motivation: Ethan Stone has dreamed of flying since he was a very small child and his choice of career was no surprise. Fittingly, he has a light and breezy personality backed by a steely, patriotic determination to see things through. As Upgrade he is intended to serve as equal parts a superhero and piece of living propaganda. The AMP is designed to show the American citizen that their government doesn't have to rely on supernatural powers: a man and his machine are more than enough. Powers & Tactics: Although Ethan Stone doesn't have super-powers of his own, he is a highly skilled agent of AEGIS and his training makes him more than a match for most mundane opponents. As Upgrade he has access to an indestructible war-machine equipped with state of the art weaponry. In combat Upgrade will position his substantial bulk between his enemies and any noncombatants in the area before attempting to overcome his foes with all of the force afforded to him by superior firepower. Complications: Accident -- The X-09 AMP is more of a vehicle than a suit and its size can be disadvantageous. Honor -- As propaganda, Upgrade is expected to conduct himself in a manner befitting a hero. Responsibility -- Upgrade's actions are beholden to the whims of the Department of Defense.

In Brief: Young gadgeteer genius Serge Explinker dons a simple yet sophisticated sonic harness/vibro-suit, in order to enhance his mutant powers and fight crime as the masked superhero Net Fly. Identity: Secret Alternate Identity: Serge Explinker Identity: Secret Birthplace: Freedom City Occupation: Student Affiliations: None (Claremont Allumni) Family: Father: Andrew Explinker. Mother: Catherine Coldear. Step-Father: Gregory Lineburg. Description: Age: 21 (DoB: March the 19th, 1995) Apparent Age: 16 Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5' 10" Weight: 180 pounds Eyes: Green Hair: Blonde Description: A lean, light-skinned teenager of medium height, Serge has curly short blonde hair and green eyes. He wears prescription reading glasses, although ever since his powers awoken, he stopped needing them. His casual attire consists of lion-colored baggy pants or jeans, a light-grey tank-top and a green camp shirt. His costume is mostly grey, composed of a spandex-like material, and covers most of his body, except the eyes, and it has extra pockets strapped at his thighs. He wears black boots and black briefs, on top of the suit, with a blue tool belt. He has blue mechanical gauntlets, and a white megaphone strapped on a blue x-shaped harness, in front of his chest. Finally, he has two blue head-pieces that cover his ears, on top of his mask. Power Descriptions: Net Fly is a mutant, with the power to influence his body's vibrations. This gives him an assortment of innate abilities, like enhanced agility, strength, and stamina, the ability to "stick" on surfaces, and the ability to fly. Further-more, he has costumised his VibroNet Suit so that he can further harness those powers and re-focus them into sonic energy. He can concentrate his gloves with sonic energy in order to enhance his fists or produce Sonic Blasts and hit his opponents from a distance. He can also opt to redirect his powers to his chest-phone, and unleash a powerful Sonic Beam. The suit also channels Net Fly's vibrational energies to create a protective Vibro-Field, which lessens the impact of attacks. Finally, his suit comes equipped with a Net Dive device, which allows him to interact with machinery and even enter the cyberspace. History: Serge was a gifted young boy, and he showed from an early age an aptitude with complex machinery and computers. While he comes from a divorced family, his parents have managed to keep a good relationship with each other and their son. When he became an adolescent, Serge started exhibiting his latent mutant abilities. It wasn't, however, until much later, when he became unwittingly entangled with a heist, that he decided to use his powers for a purpose. A group of armed robbers ambushed an armory car and stole a bunch of high-tech equipment. During the heist, things quickly escalated, and Serge, allong with a few other bystanders, was captured as a hostage, and held against his will. At first, he was paralyzed from fear, until he witnessed the robbers shot a man in front of him, in order to force the police to meet their demands. Finding an opportunity, Serge sneaked out of sight and undid his bonds with his strength. He took a few devices that were laying close to him, and tinkered with them as quickly as he could, fashioning them into Sonic Blasters. Before the robbers realized what had happened, Serge, wearing a makeshift outfit to conceal his identity, attacked them, and quickly subdued them. After rescuing everyone, Serge left the crime-scene. For the next few days, he reflected on what had just transpired. He realized that he could use his powers to fight crime, but in order to do so, he needed to make a costume for himself. Tinkering and improving upon the devices he aqcuired during the heist, and using a few more that he had created on his own, Serge was able to adapt them into a functioning suit. Now, Serge has emerged as the superhero Net Fly. He has performed adequately, but after a few close calls too many, he decided to enroll in Claremont Academy, and further hone his crime-fighting abilities. After some adventures with other fellow superheroes and Claremonters, most noteably El Heraldo, Glow, and Tsunami, Serge eventually graduated from Claremont, and enrolled into Freedom City's Hanover Institute of Technology to study Computer Sciences. During the Incursion, Serge, as Net Fly, spurred by the hero Fast Forward, joined forces with him, Grimalkin, and Triakosia, to protect the physical bodies of the heroes who had went on to do battle on the mental plane, against the Communion drones that had come to target them. During that battle, he revealed his secret identity to them, a first for him, as he had kept it a secret from other heroes who hadn't been to Claremont with him. Nevertheless, Serge might have withdrawn from heavy duty, in order to focus on his studies, the last year, but he has continued trainning and tinkering with his suit, so that he'll always be ready to step up when needed. Personality & Motivation: Serge's desire to help people is matched only by his curiosity and inquisitiveness. Serge spends a lot of his time fine-tuning his suit or practicing his programming skills. When he isn't tinkering with his devices, Serge can often be found socializing with his friends. He takes failure hard, but it also helps motivate him to try harder. However, his overeagerness to prove himself a good and worthy hero can often lead him to trouble. Powers & Tactics: Net Fly doesn't take hits well, so he prefers a hit-and-run fighting style over duking it out for prolonged periods. Having said that, however, he is perfectly capable of unleashing devastating attacks in close range, as well as take care threats from a distance. If he wishes to avoid fighting, he can opt to hide in the ceilings. Sonic Strength: This power allows Net Fly to tap into his natural vibrational powers to enhance the strength he exerts on objects. In combination with his naturally enhanced Agility, this adds a significant amount of bite in his punches. Sonic Speed: This power allows Net Fly to tap into his natural vibrational powers to create kinetic energy and exert it to gain a significant advantage in speed, allowing him to run at an accelerated pace. He can exert vibration to adhere to vertical surfaces almost as well as on horizontal ones. Additionally, he can use this energy to levitate himself, and fly around. He can run as fast as a bus or a semi, and he can fly at 1/5th the pace of a helicopter. Sonic Strength Amp: The VibroNet-suit is powered uo by Net Fly's natural vibrational powers, and enhances them further. This not only allows him to quadruple his naturally enhanced strength, it quantduples his speed and reaction, allowing him to unleash a mighty barrage of rapid-fire fisticuffs. Sonic Maelstorm: Combining his significant strength and speed enhancements thanks to the VirboNet-Suit, allows Net Fly to rapidly scour the battlefield, running, flying, and jumping left and right, and employ his sonic-fast punches and/or sonic blasts to put the hurt on multiple hostiles, with pinpoint accuracy. Sonic Blasts: Net Fly focuses stored vibrational energy from the VibroNet-Suit into the small harnesses in his gauntlets, and unleashes it into pure sonic energy waves. Sonic Beam: Net Fly builds up large amounts of stored vibrational energy from the VibroNet-Suit into the big harness in his chest, and unleashes it into a large destructive beam of sonic energy that knocks the wind out of and blasts away anyone who is unfortunate enough to cross its path. Sonic Torpedo: Net Fly covers himself in a vibrational field of energy channeled through the VibroNet-Suit that protects him from harm, and allows him to penetrate and harm hard materials. This also allows him to dig through concrete. Net Dive Harness & Installed Database: The VibroNet-Suit comes equipped with its own Bluetooth reciever/transmitter, which allows his suit to tap into and interact with nearby computers and machines. It also comes pre-installed with an extensive database that Net Fly can refer to at the drop of a hat, in case his own technological knowledges aren't sufficient to get the job done. Super Sonic Speed: The VibroNet-Suit enhances Net Fly's exceptional speed, allowing him to run twice as fast as a sports car or a motorcycle, breaking the sound barrier in the process, and Fly almost half as fast as a helicopter. Complications: In Space, no one can hear you vibrate!: Net Fly's powers are vibration based, and require a medium in order to travel. This means that if he is ever in vacuum, his ranged capabilites are extinguished, and he can only affect those he comes into direct contact. While in the vacuum of space, he can fly, but in a very limited and extremely dangerous manner, as he must exert large amounts of energy to change direction. That also means that powers that negate sound can also negate or severely limit Net Fly's powers. Rival(Volt Scorpion): After tangling up with him while in Dr Sin's captivity, aloof Korean martial artist and electrokinetic Volt Scorpion developed a sort of rivalry with Net Fly. He followed the hero to the states, and is prone of showing up unexpectedly and challenge the hero to a fight. Volt Scorpion believes that, despite Serge relying too much on his powers and suit, he actually makes a pretty compatible sparring partner for him, and Volt Scorpion will always try to goad him into battle, even if he has to make a few robberies here and there, to draw Net Fly's attention. On the Job Learning: Is learning as he goes. He had time to learn a lot throughout his Claremont days, and has managed some noteable superheroics on the side afterwards, but he still views himself as a newbie, and rightly so. Secret: Identity. Snarker Within: Extreme insecurity about his own faillings has developed into a sort-of split personality/alter self that tends to point out said flaws. Even so, Serge is usually more than willing to point his own errors himself, without outside, or for that matter, inside help, and thus, this alter self pops up very occasionally, during times of extreme duress(That is to say, more extreme than usual for a kid hero) Technobabble Motormouth: Is prone on making tangential notes about science, whenever he finds the opportunity. Trying Hard to Keep Up: Is prone of overexerting himself, and feels a compulsive need to prove his worth as a superhero.

    Argonaut Yves Zermeño is Freed Omegadrone and a current Agent of AEGIS. Operating under the heroic code name of Argonaut, Yves seeks to prevent tragedy from hitting her current home as occurred in her past. History In another world in which the mythical First Age never came to a close, the Lor Republic stretched to every corner of explored space. The military existed primarily for the purpose of exploration and further colonization of Lor Space. Quality of Life for citizens of the advanced civilization was such that only a sci fi novel could compare. Yvejskrujanharbh'aar was a freshly graduated university student with a future as a star faring diplomat in all but certain. Her life was pretty much uneventful. She had friends, family, loved ones and her personal tragedies were no more exciting than a lost pet here or there. Having never left her home planet, her dream was to engage in interplanetary relations perhaps to eventually take a seat as a Senator.The Lor citizens born on the planet of Lor-Zul are known for being born with two very distinct features. The first being a long life span in which they maintain a youthful appearance, only showing signs of aging during the last quarter of their lives. The second a natural affinity with languages their mind able to comprehend all spoken and written word as if they were living ciphers due to a unique psionic mutation. It was only the first trait that appealed to Shadivian Steelgrave after the Terminus came. With no enemies to oppose the Lor the military was nowhere near qualified to handle the unified front of the combat drones that swept their world. The Lor were crushed and in the end there was only the Terminus.Life as a conquered slave with the Hundred Worlds was far different for the Lor. Gone from Spacemen to cavemen one had to let a piece of himself die just to survive. In Nihilor only the strong survive. And what she lacked in physical might, Yvejskrujanharbh'aar made up for with sheer willpower and luck. Engaging in brutal gladiatorial fights until she scrapped by on top of her opposition. Her prize? Her mind was torn asunder as she underwent the unspeakable acts that defined the Omegadrone conditioning. Brainwashed by the Omegadrone conditioning Yvejskrujanharbh'aar had long faded she was merely a servant of Omega. Serving on the front lines as an Omegadrone Shocktrooper.Many people remember the Terminus Invasion of 1993 differently. Most of those memories are not looked back on too fondly. But for Yvejskrujanharbh'aar it was her first real memory since her first shot at life had ended. As one of those very invaders, she found herself barely clinging to life by the time the battle had come to a close. Her armor was skewered onto a steel rod at her abdomen. Recovered by AEGIS field agents, she was given medical treatment as the organization wasn't out to just let people die. Even those part of a foreign invasion force. Of course if it brought about the opportunity to learn more about the Terminus forces more power to them.It took a think tank of the top AEGIS psychologists and doctors to match Daedalus efforts in deprogramming the Omegadrone conditioning. They even crafted a new identity for her to live, monitored by a field agent, just outside of their Baltimore offices. Yvejskrujanharbh'aar or Yves as she had now come to be known just had to agree to surrender her armor to them as well as acting as a consultant whenever the need struck the agency. When Dr. Doris Volk joined AEGIS in 1997 amongst the many projects she pursued was the development of MAX series Power Armors. Shorty after completing the designs on the Super-Max armor Dr. Volk had already begun considering the process for advancing upon her design. Searching through old AEGIS files for inspiration Dr. Volk eventually came to learn about the deal AEGIS made with Yves. It took a decade to combine the technology of the Omegadrone with that of a SUPER MAX armor creating the first flight capable power armor, far before the distinctly more well known models used by Subjects V and V2. The most problematic bit of integration was that the armor's neural interface would only respond to omegadrones like the armor's previous pilot, Yves. A neural interface was originally designed to reinforce the Omegadrone conditioning and improve Nihilor's Mixed Murder Arts by recording combat data and aiding the pilot adapt in all situations. Dr. Volk's attempts of repurposing the interface to aid field agents in saving lives could not completely overcome the fact that only a mind whom had gone through Steelgrave's brainwashing was the only one capable of conceptualizing such an idea. So she requested Yves assistance in improving the combat data of the interface as Dr. Volk attempted to overcome the flaw in the design. An offer that went through a very long series of refusals before Yves finally relented with some trepidation. Spending weekends as a test pilot for the tongue in cheekily named MEGA-MAX armor.Breaking away from the training simulation when the armor caught the transmission of a nearby alarm system in which a shoe store was being robbed by three heavily armed men. Within the comfort of her armor she was able to easily able to deal with the crooks. Disappearing before AEGIS latest line in experimental technology could be shaken. Upon her return she wasn't admonished for taking off with government property as she expected. Instead there was a congratulatory fanfare and applause and she was offered a real job with the agency. After weighing her options and the sense of satisfaction that came with actually doing something good with the armor she took the job.In her personal life, Yves and her handler had wed some years back. Together they were raising three girls from his first marriage. Although at this point the eldest was studying at FCU, so the children did not exactly outnumber the parents in the household. Eventually the Zermeños requested a change in duty station from Baltimore to Freedom City. Marking her return to the city after 20 years as the armored hero Argonaut. Powers Aside from being in very good physical , Yves body has been cybernetically modified as part of the Omegadrone process. These modifications have made her both stronger and more physically conditioned than befitting a woman of her size. As a Lor Mentat Yves was psionically attuned with an innate understanding of all spoken language. Extended time in Nihilor and traversing the Cosmic Coil for invasions have left the freed Omegadrone immune from any tampering to the temporal stream. Allies Caradoc/Harrier: Steven Murdock, fellow freed Omegadrone whom Argonaut encountered while on a mission to Australia. Dr. Volk: Scientist in charge of AEGIS MAX armor series. Carlos Zermeño: Husband, former member of Team Alphabet. A trained mercenary with a bionic of arm. The pair have three children together as a result of Carlos' prior marriage. Rogues Omegadrone Armor Argonaut uses a rebuilt Omegadrone armor using an alloy made out of spare parts from broken MAX Armors and Omegadrone armors. The armor itself contains tiny nanofibers that are far stronger than human muscle fibers of equal size. The tiny nano muscles allow her to perform feats of strength above what is humanly possible. The armor's boots are able to act as a propulsion system for flight. Chanellig the entropic energies of the Terminus for a perpetual source of energy. When not in use the Omegadrone armor is stored as a portable briefcase. As impressive as the armor itself is. The signature weapon of the megadrone is not without mention. Cold Terminus Steel capable of acting as a conduit to the Terminus, the power pike can fire bolts of entropic energy. Or more. The power pike is also able to blend in with the user's surroundings. Camouflaging the user before a deadly strike. The fact that the foot soldiers of Omega are nothing more than bodies to be thrown at a problem means that this feature had little use for anything other than the opening of a drone invasion. Dr. Volk is supposedly researching the means to combine the cold dark metals of the Terminus with Impervium creating the alloy for a unique living metal armor. Rather than putting AEGIS agents through cyberization the MEGA-MAX series of armors is purported to use a neural interface much like Argonaut's shocktrooper armor. Mimicking the behavior seen by the Communion the armor allows a symbiotic bond of man and armor. Adapting the neural technology and finding a power source are the supposed last hurdles in unveiling the new line of MEGA-MAX armors. Timeline 2014 Winter The Edge of the World: Argonaut and Cavalier find remnants of the Terminus having slipped into Earth's biosphere. Trudging up old traumas the pair hastily escape a ship housing a psionic monstrosity of Dr. Friendly's leftover experimentations. Spring No More Good Days: Argonaut was sent on assignment to Australia in the hopes of retrieving a Terminus artifact. She found herself teaming with Harrier, and Vector when caught in the middle of the Omega Boss' plans to level Australia with a series of Terminus bombs. Vector was badly injured in the confrontation and a local hero was killed before the day was ultimately saved. Fall Heavy Decisions: Argonaut, Kit, Nevermore, and Terrifica all find themselves wrapped up trying to catch a thief with stolen technology. Only they quickly find out they're not the only ones after the thief. Winter A Matter of Recognition: Steve introduced Yves to Erin White, a fellow survivor, over an awkward dinner. In which Vector presented both Steve and Yves medals. In honor of their efforts in Australia much to their chagrin. All in Hand: Argonaut and Stronghold find themselves teaming up to prevent a traitorous AEGIS Agent seeking to steal various artifacts from AEGIS' vaults. Badly Soiled: Argonaut is sent to backwoods Alabama to deal with Black Knight who was causing a scene. Apparently, attacking mutant mushrooms. Despite a tumultuous meeting the pair worked with local pd to get to the bottom of things. Ah say they worked together. 2015 Winter Shanghai Surprise: Argonaut, Terrifica, and Titan found themselves traveling to China in search of stolen artifacts. Placed in the black market by Agent Hand. Spring Incursion: Red Five: The Communion had been content to use its world killer as a feint to distract most of the Freedom League near Pluto's orbit but with the true attack on Earth pushed back, five heroes volunteered on a suicide mission. Aiming to destroy the superweapon before their home joined Lor-Van!
  7. Player Name: Fox Character Name: Dragonfly Power Level: 12 (15) (233/250pp) [261] Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness Unspent PP: 17 In Brief: Bitter young genius out to apply her mind on her terms, and no one else's. Alternate Identity: Mara Hallomen Identity: Secret Birthplace: France (Dual-Citizenship, French/American) Occupation: Full-Time Inventor/Superhero Affiliations: Ironclad, Jill O'Cure, The Lab Family: Alexander "Hollow Man" Hallomen (Father) Age: 22 (DoB: December 1991) Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'5" Weight: ~110lbs, ~160lbs in armor Eyes: Dark Blue Hair: Dirty-Blonde Description: On the short side, slim and modestly proportioned but not exactly muscular, Mara tends to take just enough care of herself to maintain her shape and stay alive, but not much else. She nearly always looks a little strung-out, hair disheveled and eyes tired, like she doesn't sleep well (which she doesn't) or spends long stretches distracted by some project or idea to the neglect of all else (which she does). Her clothing is simple, practical, and subdued in color (shades of gray and black being popular, quiet blues and dark purples being runners-up). Make-up is practically a foreign concept and generally not worth her time. Her powersuit is built to be sleek and afford her full range of motion, colored in greys and gunmetal blacks with neon blue highlights. The gauntlets are bulkier, relative to the rest of the suit, and have plating that can shift and rearrange for the task at hand - including deploying a number of small tools. The back of the suit carries a smooth backpack-like piece that extends four short articulated nodes to generate and control her wings in flight. Various parts of the suit, most notably the helmet, can be commanded to pull back or fold away for convenience. When not in use the suit is exchanged with a heavy, flexible metal choker that rests at the base of the user's neck; it has no visible clasp and, while clearly well-made and tasteful, does not appear to be especially valuable. Power Descriptions: When Dragonfly's Datalink is active small lights 'dance' behind her eyes; this effect is not very bright, but is highly piercing (being subtly noticeable even through her helmet's lenses, which are otherwise not outwardly transparent). Failed attempts to penetrate her Mental Immunity are met with psychic "static," resistance, and unintelligible echoes of her multiple running thoughts. Her technology-based spatial effects typically manifest as shifting, churning distortions or fragmented space. Some effects are tinted the same distinct neon blue her suit emits at the seams and glasswork when charged. In flight the suit creates four thin wings of that same neon blue-tinted energy which leave a soft trail behind her: they are insubstantial to the touch, if tingly, and designed to look like stylized and blade-like dragonfly wings (though they do not flap, but can and do adjust position for in-flight control). She can call up a number of small drones for a variety of purposes; each is a bit smaller than a football, with one end flattened into a 'face' dominated entirely by a single large eye capable of projecting images and high-energy lasers. Though they lack grasping limbs, they can carry light loads by way of the same gravity manipulators that let them fly. History: In certain parts of the underworld you don't buy or sell weapons without knowing the name Hallomen. Word is that for the right price he can get you anything: designer drugs like Max or Zoom, the very latest in illegal technology, and even, once in a rare while – if you can afford it – gadgets from caught supervillains that got 'lost' on their way to disposal or science labs. From the back alleys to high-class black market auctions, he supplies whole armies if the price is right and by luck, bribes, and exceptional planning he never seems to get caught; those who've dealt with him jokingly call him the “Hollow Man†(through rarely to his face) in honor of how the police raid into his storehouses and labs to find empty rooms. What customers only very rarely know is where most of the new and custom items came from. Hallomen is a cold and ruthless man but a man none the less, and around the turn of the 20th century had a short tryst with a villainess and frequent buyer. He was completely uninterested in the child she bore (what use did he have for a wailing, disgusting baby?) until several years later, when he got word that the child was beginning to show superhuman traits – signs of high intelligence and her mother's ability to communicate with electronics. Now and only now was the girl useful to him and when the mother was killed (something he calmly claims he had nothing to do with, of course) the daughter fell into his care. Little Mara Hallomen was indeed predicted to be brilliant when she grew older but that simply wouldn't be enough for the Hollow Man – no, anything good can be made better, results could be obtained faster. He invested considerable resources into her 'education', and so it was that young Mara grew up all but alone in a barely-staffed lab, under a constant regimen of 'vitamins' and 'medicine', supplied with a never-ending stream of knowledge and information; her only human contact was a rare visit from her father, a scant few researchers or guards, and the occasional empath or psychic paid to enhance her mind in ways conventional science could not. Even this was cold comfort, however, as anyone who set foot in the building was under strict orders not to talk to Mara unless absolutely necessary so she could concentrate on her real purpose: designing new and improved tools of crime. From death rays to personal teleporters to battlesuits, she made them all. Old-school and cutting-edge, energy to gravity to good old bullets, she designed a veritable panoply and Hallomen made money hand over fist. Kept docile, driven, and borderline insane as an intended side-effect of her constant "health treatments," the only thing her father could never have predicted was the net effect it was taking on her mind: redundant and parallel in some places, warped and enhanced in others, bit by bit her brain was growing resistant to outside influence. The older she got the more treatment she underwent and the more treatment she underwent the more resistant she became; the more resistant she became the more disquieting her life seemed. Finally, near her 18th birthday, she was resting in what passed for her private room when a lone dragonfly wandered its way through the barred window and caught her eye. To anyone else it wouldn't even have been a remarkable specimen of an insect, but to her the darting little bug was the most beautiful thing in the world: free. Then and there she made up her mind to be as free as the dragonfly was - to escape and feel the wind under her metaphorical wings. Less than a month later, the guards came to wake her and found the room empty, the majority of her research and designs completely destroyed, and a very large sum vanished from her father's own personal bank account. She's managed to stay a step ahead of her father and his goons ever since, figuring Freedom City and its relatively high hero count to be the perfect place to hide out…and test some new designs on her own terms. Personality & Motivation: Mara's more than a little bitter about not having had much of a childhood, and not amazingly socially skilled (which she typically deals with using snark and distrust). When presented with a puzzle or new idea to build she's energized and almost manic as her brain kicks into gear to solve the task at hand. She's very intelligent and highly rational, but a combination of chronic bad sleep and frequent headaches (both side-effects of her altered brain and assorted substances that are even now still washing out of her system) can make her snide and irate...though continuing social exposure and her ongoing relationship are alleviating many of these problems. Given her life so far, she has a fairly intense dislike of criminals. She's softer at heart than she'd ever admit, having an especially strong drive to aid children, but by and large she's more driven by the victimizers than their victims. Powers & Tactics: Mara dabbles in many areas of technology but most of her combat tech is based on spatial distortions, something she developed under her father's thumb but didn't work the kinks out of until she'd escaped. Her devices, her gauntlets especially, are built to warp and fold space to provide any number of effects. Her Datalink power she finds useful, but more for utility than combat; her mind's resistance to outside influence is something she tries to keep well-hidden as her ace in the hole against manipulation. When given half a chance she plans her battles quickly and efficiently, well aware that she relies on her devices and that those devices have limits. Against an obviously inferior foe she might be careless, but against anything or anyone challenging she is methodical and deliberate, striking when she'll have the upper hand and analyzing the situation for any advantage. Complications: Drones: Powers with the 'drone' descriptor only function when Dragonfly can deploy and command her drones. She has a decent but not inexhaustible stock to call up, and if her radio communication to them is cut off they are left with only their most recent instructions and a dog-like AI - which only tells them to finish their current task (to the best of their now-reduced ability) and then return to safety. Enemy: The Hollow Man. When she left she dealt a huge (if sadly not crippling) blow to her father's business, not to mention the very large sum of money she took with her. He wants her back, preferably in good condition, though the longer he has to pretend that the key to his most popular items hasn't vanished the more and more flexible he gets as long as she's alive and her head's in one piece. Hatred: People taking advantage of or endangering children, anyone using the creations she thought up, and to a lesser extent organized crime or high-end weapons dealers. HUD: The power suit device communicates most of its Super-Sense powers through Dragonfly's normal senses, and thus may be lost to the appropriate dazzle or similar sense-impairing attack (eg, all visual senses and Uncanny Dodge are lost when visually dazzled; radio signals cannot be 'heard' if deaf; etc). Legacy: Against her best efforts, some of her creations are still being made here and there, and there are still quite a number of older designs floating around through the underworld. Anyone savvy enough, or connected enough, can link this (often quite lethal or empowering) technology to her. Relationship: With >Jill O'Cure. Responsibility: Mara now owns and runs Hallomen Advanced Experts (HAX), and is responsible for being the boss and keeping the place going and its people employed, not to mention protecting the rather valuable projects and secrets therein. Secret: Identity. Side-Effects: Powerful depressants and some other compounds (like Zombie Powder) react badly with chemicals and conditioning still in Dragonfly's system; depending on the dosage used she'll range from being slightly neurotic (as her sense of identity fights the old conditioning) up to complete if temporary regression to a happy and disturbing little worker bee that almost mindlessly devours any technical projects put in front of her. Suit Lite: Dragonfly's suit, while in choker form, is severely limited in what it can do - generally speaking, it's capable only of the Dimensional Pocket, Force Field, Shield, and Teleport powers. The device is, of course, only Subtle when in choker form and not actively being used.
