Dramatis Personae

  • The Commander (Doug) – telekinetic super-soldier with a really angry dog (Yukio). The dog is a powerful ally (250-300 points) and very intelligent and very, very aggressive.
  • The Rat Queen (Emily) – brick with super-perception; made of actual rats
  • Zephyr (Merlin) – Real name Murui; Shaolin Kung Fu expert and super-speedster.
  • Eamon Finnegan (Kyle) – smooth talking gravity-master; Ultimate Fighting Lawyer, to borrow a phrase.
  • Ezekiel (Christian) – Techno Master, Genius, Esper, Super Archer
  • Katana (NPC) – Will be The Commander’s wife one day. She knows it to be true. Recently revealed to be the 4yo little girl from the time-vision plot arc. The Commander cannot date a kid he knew when she was four. Icky.
  • Four Navy SEALS
  • Galatea – our newly-made Ultron; first name Natalie.

We look through stuff, and as we’re working the place over, we find a bunch of boxes labeled KB-109. Bunch of parts that look like a robotic spider. We look it up. It’s an autonomous sentry robot, developed sometime in 2020 as a means to counter the vampire threat. They were controlled by some sort of neural link device. We get to see a guy in a battlesuit with about 30 of these things tearing into a small mob of vampires. The bots are moving at something like 22mph.

Zephyr wants to let Yukio control it. This seems like a sub-optimal plan, but hey, why not?

What about Eamon? Well . . . it would still be funnier to give it to Yukio.
