Fox Girl was one of my just for fun characters who quickly turned into one of my favorites to play. She has a few false starts but I kept re-rolling her for whatever reason. The original version was named Kitsuneko, a claws/regen scrapper on Justice, but at the time I had other characters who wanted my attention (such as my main characters in Star Patrol). Kitsuneko also had a problematic appearance, as she was rolled before there were animated tails. Once those tails were wagging she came back again, but found I had other priorities again as everyone wanted to play in the also new Praetoria of the Going Rogue expansion. So I rolled her up again as a Pretorian, this time as a claws brute. This time I had perfection, and next thing I knew she was level 30 and leaping around Paragon City as my main who wasn’t 50 yet. Several costume changes and a few super groups later, she finally reached the level cap but never ascended because… well, time ran out.]]>
Wirbelsturm is a character I never played, and never actually created in City of Heroes. He was one of those I never got around to. No powers, not even a fleshed out concept; just a costume idea. Here, in the final week I have available to access the game, I decided to finish him up. Here he is: Wirbelsturm the pirate faerie.]]>
Like the last reroll, this Dust Raven is from Praetorian Earth. Although his family had ties to the Syndicate, he attempted to break away and become his own man by joining Powers Division rather than becoming just another thug in the “family business.” Unfortunately, Powers Division didn’t offer him the freedom he was seeking, and so became a thug for the state rather than his family. As his disillusionment with the system was taking hold, he was contacted psychically by Penelope Yin, a childhood friend of his before she was taken to become a seer (as was one of Dust Raven’s sisters). Through Penny, Dust Raven learned more about the corruption within Cole’s regime and eventually about the coming war between Praetorian and Primal Earth. Ultimately he left Praetorian Earth to seek a way to make piece between his world and the other (mainly because the narrative presented leaves you no choice).
In Primal Earth, Dust Raven’s selfless acts of heroism and fearless devotion to protecting others quickly gained him a reputation as a superhero through Paragon City, despite his refusal to associate with any of the groups of registered heroes throughout the city. He would join temporary teams and alliances with other heroes, and sometimes villains, in order to promote the greater good. Given his past experiences with more permanent membership in groups such as Powers Division and the Syndicate he prefers to remain unaffiliated groups in general. Instead he prefers to make friends with other heroes on an individual basis.
