New pages have been added with the current roster of character in the various super groups I play in on City of Heroes. You can find these pages on the right, or select from one of the links below:
Dust Raven has been my namesake character, and general online persona, since I first logged on the Internet. It should be no surprise that I’ve given this character so much attention, and have put a lot of serious effort into making him into a character I truly enjoy playing. He was originally roll-up on Champion as a grav/kin controller, though with most of my friends playing on Liberty or Justice he saw little play. I eventually rerolled him as an illusion/kin on Justice, but the more I played him, the less impact he seemed to have in group play (almost the group I played with regularly did not the core buffs associated with kin, and the occasional strobe effects of illusion presented other problems). So I re-imaged him as a corrupter, which was so successfully he quickly level to 50 and became an incarnate. Unfortunately just as quickly he became boring to play.
So here I am again with another re-roll. This one’s a little different, in that the “original” Dust Raven, the corrupter, still exists, but has left Paragon City indefinitely. Instead this re-roll is the Praetorian version. He’s still very much the same person, but unlike the Primal, Praetorian Dust Raven takes an active interest in the well-being of others. He’s a team player rather than a rogue. I’m looking forward to seeing how this version of him plays out.
In this version, Dust Raven is a dark/dark blaster. The origin of his powers is the same (summoning dimensional fire), but the effects are different. He’s currently out of Praetoria, and a member of Nobody’s Side, though he may end up in Star Patrol as time goes by.
Presenting Agent Rosencrantz! I transferred Rose to Justice from Protector when CoH:Freedom went live. His original name was Flamestrike. The concept for the character actually comes from an NPC I used for an old Rifts campaign. The general idea was a guy who turned to human augmentation as a means of survival and revenge after his family (and entire town) was killed by monsters. The end result was a somewhat loopy/zany fun-loving guy who could suddenly turn wicked scary in the blink of an eye. I think I’ve captured that in Flamestrike/Rosencrantz.
The name “Rosencrantz” comes from a mercenary (with a love of Shakespeare) who could never get remember the real names of anyone, and thus gave them nicknames.
Agent Lambert is my newest City of Heroes characters, and the newest member of Star Patrol. I’m working out the details of his background, but in short he’s a member of the “nuclear ninety” and has powers similar to Fusionette. Unlike Fusionette, he is also able to use his energy emission powers to accelerate healing in himself and others, as well as bolster the body’s natural abilities.
Agent North is an Ice Blast/Ice Manipulation Blaster in Star Patrol on Justice. This holiday season he discovered this alteration of his outfit which goes well with the jingle jet pack:
