Volunteering: Name Those NPCs!

One of the challenges for any content creator is something that is both menial and at times profound ... the thinking up of names for NPC characters. And I'm not just talking about the Big Heavies that lead their factions, but also all the grunts and menials and minions that make up their factions too. Being able to crowdsource NPC names so as to give the City of Titans content creators a "library" of names to choose from that they can just go to to pull a name from seems like a worthwhile endeavor that can pay off handsomely on down the line, even if more than 90% of the name submissions never get used (thanks to the "90% of everything is crap" law).

Just to get things rolling here, I'll start with 10 names (listed in alphabetical order) and a painfully short blurb for the sort of character I'd imagine them being just to put a "handle" onto them. I'd also appreciate it if everyone could post a variant of the IP Release Form quote at the beginning of each and every reply post so as to eliminate wrangling over Rights to any particular names posted by anyone in this thread.

Hexfrost: Student turned reluctant heroine kidnapped and forceably implanted via Science with the Magical seed of degeneration and ice; Body degrading slowly due to it rejecting the implanted seed. Has mild to severe haphephobia.

Cryopterix: Avatar of an ancient, alien avian Goddess of Ice, resurrects after every death. Is a cheerful, loving husband with two children. Functionally immortal.

Dreamseer: Homeless, insane vagrant with delusions of Elder Gods in the Ocean; has reality-affecting powers, though limited to touch. Mostly spends his time killing random people off the street and throwing them in the ocean or any nearby body of water.

Lady Singapore: National Heroine of Singapore with a Lion motif. Exposed to strange pollutants while working in top-level experiments on Solar Energy, causing her to subsist purely on solar energy, as well as gaining the power to fly and use light/heat-based powers. Often aids search and rescue teams in the Asia-Pacific. Is of the Malay Muslim racial minority. (Just in case you need some sort of worldwide feel)

Vampere: Mutant speedster with powers of electricity turned vampire. Has powers of both sides with the normal weaknesses of vampires; can sate his bloodlust also by siphoning huge amounts of electricity, enough to power a good-sized city for a few weeks. Vigilante, possibly misunderstood/angsty teenager, and easily manipulated.

Vent: Heroine with powers of heat and steam, related to her blood pressure and extreme emotions. Is an anger management counselor on her off days.

The Boys: A group of assassins that specifically hunts Supers, led by The Duke, and consisting of The Truth (pyromaniac and the face of the group), The Switch (demolitions), The Eye (communications and surveillance), The Quiet (reconnaissance and wetworks) and The Big Guns (firearms master and muscle, only Super of the group with mild invulnerability to small arms). They operate globally, and are pursued by the various law enforcement entities around the globe, including Interpol.

Tyrfing: Scandinavian hero with a cursed sword, giving him invulnerability and prodigious strength, but destined to kill its wielder. Operated for a few years within Norway before he dies protecting a schoolbus full of Super children from The Boys.

Henry the Seventeenth (Several thousand? times removed): A small-time megalomaniac with no real powers except the ability to access the memories of any other man named Henry before him anytime, anywhere. Caused a small furor over the civil rights of Supers in several countries including the USA before they found out he was stark raving mad because of his powers. Died at the hands of The Boys. (Maybe certain parts of the world are still reluctant to name their child Henry because of this)

789 (Tsatbakgau): A Chinese-American street gang that focuses on angry, marginalized Chinese-American teenaged Supers. Has a social structure based on brotherhood and family. Gang motifs include the numbers 789 in either roman or traditional chinese numerals.

I can go on all day. It'll be better if I have a direction to go with though.

Here are some ideas for characters, in alphabetical order:

Afterburner: A aerospace engineer has designed a space probe but due to funding cutbacks the government can not fund building it. He modifies the schematic and uses it to design a power suit that can fly using built-in rockets, and he can shoot short bursts from the rockets as flame attacks.

Battlebeetle: A small mechanical robot, resembling an anthropomorphic beetle. He was a prototype housecleaning robot, and designed to move quickly and to lift heavy objects to clean quickly and efficiently. An electrical surge scrambled his programming, and he uses his strength, durability, and speed in combat.

Beamer: An alien from another planet who has the ability to fire beams of light from his eyes in combat, or to turn his body temporarily into a beam of light to teleport both short and long distances.

Bolshevik: The result of an old Soviet experiment, he is monstrously huge, possessing extreme strength and durability. He is slow and dumb but full of rage against capitalist countries and their citizens.

Doctor Clean: A mad scientist obsessed with replacing the world's "filthy humans" with "perfect beings"; robots of his creation. He has been slowly replacing his own body parts with cybernetics as self-improvement.

Freezerbird: She wears a combat suit originally designed to fight fires. It has flight capabilities (using large mechanical wings and rocket boosters) and can fire beams of freezing cold.

Fridget: A mutant woman driven insane by her powers. She has the ability to summon and control ice and lower ambient temperatures, and wishes to bring a new ice age to the world one piece at a time.

Hot Step: A martial arts woman with fire and super-speed. She often fights with flame-augmented punches and kicks at a speed difficult to counter. The source of her power is a magical belt she wears.

Keku-Set: Originally a priest in ancient Egypt, he was mummified upon his death by his acolytes using spells that would resurrect him 3,000 years later. He has now awoken to try to rule the world using ancient magic and a variety of Egyptian weaponry.

Mind Sniper: A former Special Forces soldier turned mercenary. He combines psychic abilities and expert marksmanship to bring down his targets. He can also achieve perfect aim while sniping using his psychic "inner eye".

Tin Soldier: A veteran Marine turned mercenary. He wears a suit of powered armor equipped with the latest in anti-personnel and anti-armor weaponry and targeting systems.

Vegetabolt: An alien from a planet where plants evolved into humanoid form. He speak to and control plant life and his chlorophyll blood can store sunlight and release it as bolts of electricity.

Ok i don't think adding Gideon's pawn shop is a good idea since that place is from The Crow franchise.

Superhere: Humanoids made of the ground they stand on, using appropriate textures. Their bodies pull matter from the ground to regenerate, making them largely immune to any but AoE attacks, and resistant to Knockback. Their cause is environmentalism. They're not too picky about which environment - anywhere with a surface to stand on will suffice. But any collateral damage or AoE attacks (even without doing damage) will earn their ire. They prefer to use Superstrength attacks, often throwing their environment right back at you. It has been suggested they were created by a magician who could not spell.

Kodun White Crane- A rather large being of spiritual origin, believed to be a sort of Urban Dryad. He is found hanging out in the city's port, around the container terminal (if it has one). He wants nothing more than to chase the mafia types and other criminal organizations out of the port he calls home, and will recruit willing heroes to his cause.

I can provide illustrations of these if needed

Mistress Hightower- Another Urban Dryad type found in the city's financial district. She is dedicated to punishing criminals who hide behind respectable corporate facades.

Nice addition to my pool-themed gang, Redlynne! The other accomplices are good additions. I think you meant "Eight Ball" (which is the black ball in the set), instead of "Black Ball" though.

You're most welcome. It was just one of those things where you see someone else's ideas and inspiration strikes. Gangrel is also correct in that "Black Ball" is entirely intentional on my part. The thing that I'm really proud of is the double entendre of "Scratch Gang" ... since in pool a "scratch" is pocketing the cue ball ... but "scratch" is also a slang term for money/cash, and the word "scratch" is also used in one of the more common understandings of quid pro quo found in the phrase "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours."

Other double meanings crop up with words like "snooker" which can either refer to a style of cue sport, or as a sort of con used on unsuspecting marks so as to cheat them (which can also take the form of Pool Sharking to hustle someone). "Stripes" could refer to a person who has previously booked a reservation at the Grey Bar Hotel (also known as "prison" to the rest of us). "Bridge" might be someone who has a Civil Engineering degree and has lots of knowledge of architecture and structural design ... always useful for knowing how to get into (and out of) places, particularly if demolitions are needed. "Bank Shot" can refer not only to a particular type of play at the pool table, but also robbing banks using guns. Black Ball has not only the 8-ball of the pool table connection, but also the connotation of "we don't serve your kind here" in the social connections, networking and heirarchy senses (as anyone who knows their Joseph McCarthy history of ruining people's reputations would know). So a Black Ball Club could either be a place where the outcasts go to have a good time, or it could be the sort of place that keeps the outcasts OUT so that only the richest, most prestigious and snootiest folks can have a place to mingle, see and be seen, without worrying about needing to rub shoulders with the riff-raff of society in an EXCLUSIVE club for the rich and famous.

In other words ... well played, Blue Ox, well played.

That's funny because as I was typing the response, I thought maybe you really did mean to say "Black Ball". I considered not replying as I did, but convinced myself you actually meant 8-ball. Dammit. I always guess wrong. When there's a 50/50 shot, I guess the losing 50. When choosing a line at the grocery store, I always pick the slowest. Grrrrr...

Actually, I started with the word "snooker", thinking that it would be some villain who was a cheat and a thief, but then I remembered the game in pool. Then I just started tossing out words related to pool, and ended up with what I wrote.

Regardless, it looks like we made a good team here: I set 'em up and you knocked 'em dow... err... that's actually bowling... Hmmm... I got it... an amateur bowling team gets super powers when a pinsetter machine malfunctions.... oh, nevermind. ; )

Alrighty since I have a lot of ideas, some are scrapped book ideas, let's see if you guys can use any!

Legacy- A girl with a suit made of metal. Not just any metal, a conscious metal that bends to only her will. Gifted to her by her father who worked on the Legacy Project (hence her super name). I came up with this idea and my dad expanded on it, basically it can create swords and shields. Oh and a ball to roll around in as transport..or a floating board. Either one.

Erik DuVale- A scientist working towards greater weapon technology. Big target for kidnappings.

Gretchen Wodrow- A helpless, single mother with terrible luck getting in to hostage situations.

Chief Yelowitz- Chief of Police. Rather large, unhelpful, and possibly corrupt.

Servants of Arwen- (I got this idea from a celtic symbol. Although I got the information from the internet, so bear with me here.) Baddies. They believe in balance, and therefore if there is good in the world there must be evil. Run by the Rays of Arwen, a group of three.
- Roana: A woman with silver hair and golden eyes.
- Dom: A man with golden hair and silver eyes.
- Gemini: One body with two souls, a male and female, who are constantly struggling for control.

Blood Dragons- (This is a weird idea I have based on vampiric royal guards, but they can just be good guys) A group dedicated to the protection of all. Led by 7 generals with the code names Shade Walker, Widow Maker, Tigers' Eye, Quick Shot, Leona, and the Twin Dragons (A.K.A the Eastern and Western Dragons) All members have red dragon tattoos and amulets that allow for physical and mental protection. (Sorry if any of these are names you can't use.)
-Shade Walker: Can use invisibility to hide in the shadows. Attacks with katanas. Has a daughter who is a blade specialist named Ariana.(Male originally named Killian)
-Widow Maker: The only general with no powers. She uses metal cords that extend from her sleeves to either pierce, wrap, or cut her enemies. Received her name when she killed her abusive father to protect her little sister (if too gruesome a back story than you can change it) (Female originally named Mila)
-Tigers' Eye: Born with cat like eyes he uses metal claws and the ability to temporarily turn incorporeal.(Male originally named Santiago)
-Quick Shot: Able to summon ranged weapons from anywhere, particularly powerful with bows.(Male originally named Victor)
-Leona: Shape shifts partially in to a lioness, her hair becomes wild like a mane and claws form on her hands. Quick reflexes and movement but a lower defense. (Female originally name Lyn)
-The Twin Dragons: Teleporters that use fire-enchanted spears to attack. (Females originally named Liliana and Amanda)

Lt. Erika Volin- A military soldier often on guard duty.

Kieran O'Kelley- A bar owner in the city.

Yolanda Babikov- A judge who makes a lot of enemies out of local gangs.

Priests of the Sun- An organization that is dedicated to the protection of the human race and the extermination of immortals. They are covered in golden runes that give them different attributes. The runes change their hair and eyes to gold. Led by Saint Zachariah.

Freddy "Bones" McGuee- A gang boss who wears a skeleton costume under a suit and tie, complete with a fedora.

Tracey Smiles- A sadistic villianess with no name but her own. Master at using knives, leaves her victims with a smiley face cut in to their forehead.

Patrick Basque- A man who always seems to be getting mugged.

Elizabeth Bruelly- A journalist with a knack for getting in to everyones business.

Spell Binder- A highschool teacher who casts spells in the name of justice in his spare time.

Rocky Vanes- A male nurse with a soft heart.

Freedame- A female heroine with a flapper style get up and a love of whips.

Picturesque- A woman who fights crime and looks fabulous doing so.

Experiment 61- A lab rat who has gained unknown powers. Nasty case of amnesia and low control.

Miner Sixteener- A teen with a technologically advanced pick axe and a stubborn attitude.

A-Major - An ex-military person with a magical flute that can do many things with it's songs.

Hopper- A young girl who can jump quite high and has a penchant for bunny outfits.

Snow Clause- Lawyer by day and crime fighting, snow throwing santa by night.

Ever Rest- An evil mountain climber who can summon the dead.

Light Show- A fire spewer who also happens to be an effects manager.

Appladai- A benevolent healer.

Intense- An extreme sports nut who has extremely good reflexes, flexibility, and martial arts skills.

(Sorry a lot of these are bad...)

...First of all, I ain't no hero. I was servin' consecutive life sentences on two murder wraps, and waitin' on a third "guilty" verdict that was gonna put a needle in my arm for sure. Not that I minded all that much. After all, I done what they said I did. I mean sure, after what my little sister's punk boyfriend and his "homies" did to her, even my "public pretender" made a decent case that I had... how did he say it... oh yeah, "reacted as any one of you would have if such horrors were inflicted on your loved one". Evidently, the jury wasn't buying that even one of them was capable of, as the D.A. put it "savagely beating three sleeping men until they would never again wake"... allegedly... Anyway, like I said, as long as Tami could begin to recover, finally sleeping at night again knowing those men were gone for good, I was willin' to accept whatever consequences the law said I had comin' to me...

...Now, I might be a little "impulsive", but I'm not stupid, so when that fancy corporate lawyer came in his expensive suit and slick hair and told me he could get me outta prison, you'd think I'da signed those papers faster'n you could spit. I took a bit more convincin' though. Asked him not only why his company was willin' to spring a soon-to-be-three-time loser headed for "the row", but why in the world would the governor agree? He tells me that they're startin' up a new program s'posed to help "people like me"... ones that might have 'issues' but don't deserve life in prison, or worse. If I complete "the program", my record gets cleared up and I'm free to be a regular law-abiding citizen again. So i ask how long this "program" is supposed to last, and he tells me there's no way to know for sure... every case is different... blah, blah, blah. In the end, I agree. After all, what could be worse than what I've got coming, right? Wrong! Take it from me, you gotta read the fine print in them things...

...Next thing I remember, I'm strapped to a stone table in a cave somewhere while robed shadows are chantin' in some strange language I never heard before. All I remember besides that is darkness and pain that seemed to go on forever... then I wake up. I'm in a room, laying in the biggest, most comfortable bed I've ever dreamed of. Except I'm not comfortable, mostly because it feels like someone set me on fire! I look over and, through watery eyes, I see the lawyer sitting in a chair next to the bed watching me like the lab rat I signed myself up to be. My first thought is that I wanna set HIM on fire, but no sooner does the thought begin to form than the pain becomes a whole new level of excruciating! My squirmin' 'round like a demon-possessed little girl from a bad horror movie finally gets him talkin'. He tells me that they have given me "power over Shadow and Fire", that I've gone from Death Row to Undeath, and that if I want the pain to stop, or get my soul back in one piece, I must "serve the greater good"... Indefinitely, apparently...

...So, here I am... Prowling the night in Titan City... Helping other peoples' little sisters... Looking to fulfill my self-imposed destiny... And share my pain with those who deserve it most...

The Town: Rumored to be the residents of a small town that had the misfortune of being the test site of a super villain for a psionic nuke. A group of madmen with psionic powers of varying degrees, gasmasks, suits, skull masks and ball gowns are typical attire for them, some wear trophies of recent kills, necklaces made of human teeth and jewelry made from human eyeballs. Also rumored to possess the ability to make weak willed men and women "one of there own" in large numbers, stripping them of sanity and making them a part of "The Town"

The Mayor: Ruler of the town, while weak physically is in possession of great telekinetic ability, known to be able to tear a non combatant civilian limb from limb with the power of his mind. He's a tall, skinny, almost anorexic in a fur coat, long black and white stripped top hat, black dress pants with black suspenders, a gas mask and a white dress shirt.

The cat lady: Weakest of the "big names" of the town, has the ability to connect to a hive mind with felines of an animal level intelligence, uses her powers for surveillance more than combat but does know how to use her cats effectively in combat if she needs to stand and fight. Looks like an old crone covered in rags.

The Butcher: High level biokinetic capable of transforming his body to his personal needs, rumored to be a cannibal. He is a large, muscular man in bloody butcher clothes.

The Baker: High level pyrokinetic, in his delusions considers himself the "God of fire and arsonists", a section of the town mostly made of pyrokineticests believe his claim and revere him as a god, buts heads constantly with the mayor over control of the town. Half his face is burned, he mostly wears priest clothes.

The Candlestick Maker: Explosives expert and low level pyrokinetic, makes up for his low psionic abilities by being a high level martial artist and with his unpredictable nature. Favors sticks of TNT but has been known to use other explosives. Dresses in a burnt suit, a skull mask covers his mostly burnt face.

L-VIS: Visitor-liason bot at the Rock & Roll museum, hit with massive power surge. Became self-aware, but delusionally believes himself to be the true King of Rock'n'Roll.

Corpse Candle: Formerly a high-energy-physics researcher. Murdered by being trapped in a particle accelerator while it powered up. Exists now as an 'energy ghost'' -- visually appears as a luminous greenish ball of 'foxfire'. No physical body, but can manipulate matter via molecular excitation (can speak by vibrating air molecules, and can cause solids or liquids to heat and catch fire.)

Ninjasaurus: Reptilian humanoid of uncertain origin. Claims multiple, conflicting origins (temporally displaced dinosaur, reptilian alien, mutated human, lab-grown supersoldier, etc.), none of which can be absolutely confirmed, and all of which he says are completely true. Exhibits high levels of proficiency in several combat styles, including swordplay, thrown weaponry, and unarmed combat. Highly intelligent but has problems concentrating, and frequently forgets/changes goals in the middle of a mission. Limited camouflage abilities, due to chromatophores in dermal layer. Loves being the center of attention, and will go to great lengths (even endangering self or civilians) to grab more publicity.

I am the Godzilla of love. Where I have passed, nothing remains but smoldering rubble and traumatized Japanese people.

Punchline: A deadpool-light like villain to help lighten things up a bit, he works on his own has no clear goals, and commits random acts of murder for fun. Probably would use comical weapons such as a big pink grenade launcher or a hammer with a smiley face drawn on the end called The Ban Hammer

Bouncy Boy: A fanboy that obsesses over the main super heroes with his own set of less then impressive superpowers, in missions would often get in the way and mess something up, and most of the supers try to convince him to leave before he gets himself hurt in the nicest way they can.

For todays assortment of names i have 2 different Villainous groups.

1. THE BLEACHERS GANG; BILLY THE BULLY, TINA, TINA TWO TIMES, and JASON THE FINK. These are high school kids that would of hung out behind the bleachers smoking at foot ball games. They have a mild obsession with organized crime. At low levels they use sticks, rocks, baseball bats etc. and as your character progresses they are found at higher levels as lackeys for the actual mob. they now use machine guns, hand guns, crow bars etc.

2. CHARLES BRAITHWAIT front man and supposed leader of THE ALCHEMISTS to the outside world. A group obsessed with controlling every last scrap of metal in the city, thereby crippling building, growth and the economy, forcing the citizens to elect CHARLES BRAITHWAIT mayor and eventually ruler of the universe. THE ALCHEMISTS also known as THE ORDER OF ZOSIMUS are comprised of ALCOLYTES, APPRENTICES, COMPOUNDERS, TRANSMUTERS, METALURGISTS, AUGERS, and ZOSIMUS the ancient alchemist himself and real leader of the ALCHEMISTS. Each segment of the group harnesses some part of the 4 elements to use and do their bidding, while CHARLES and ZOSIMUS have the ability to control all 4 elements making them dangerous. the 2 are also in a state of power struggle for leadership, giving rise to the possible separation of the group into 2 distinct evil groups. One, seeking world domination and the other in search of the philosophers stone and unlimited power.

GLIMPSE: the contact heroes see to pick up their next mission. Named thus for her ability to see short spans into the future.

HEIST: the contact villains go to for their next "heist"

THE ALERION MAGE: wielder of the Carthax Beastiary, is a powerful conjurer who has taken his name from the first creature named in the book. His tower is populated by fierce mythic animals he has pulled from the pages of the ancient book. It is said he is guarded by the SABLE GAURD, an ever shifting mantel or cloak (no one knows for sure) that melts from his body in times of peril to his personage; to form 20 of the fiercest warriors.

SHARD: An epic Titan who wields the power of mirror tech. Discovering in his early 20's how to embed mirrors with Nano sun magnifiers, he quickly rose in the hero ranks. Some powers include... shard shatter, shard slash, shard caltrops, burn, focused burn, mirror cages, mirror clone, warmth, and sunspots. His signature tag line is "time for a tan"

Ooh... the guy with the

Ooh... the guy with the heists could be der Heistgeist. Likely a supernatural thing.

If it only shows up briefly, yet enthusiastically, you'd have the Feisty Heistgeist Cameist.

How about...

FILIGREE: A proud woman in her late 30's early forties who is a "natural" sort of hero. She is a master FORGE MISTRESS and crafts all her weapons. She is skilled in both ranged and hand to hand combat. Her main weapon of choice is her quarter staff that she "wove" from fine silver and carbon fiber filaments. Since her weapons are strong but light weight due to the nature of the materials and "weaving" technique, her ranged javelin's are equally as deadly.

THE FORGE: The forge are a band of people that move from place to place, offering their services to any who can pay. Their weapons are second to none and they are fierce warriors as well. Most FORGE are loyal to no side, preferring to lend a hand to the side that is willing to pay the most coin. FILIGREE is the most famous of the forge and the only one to date that has chosen a side. The ranks of the FORGE include FORGE MASTERS, FORGE MISTRESSES, HAMMERS, ANVILS, BELLOWS, and APRENTICES

TALON: A rogue agent skilled with a crossbow

IO: He is listed in the great Titan register as being a rock of a man who had the ability to harness the power of volcanoes. Coupled with his super strength he was a great sight to behold. IO had one fault though... Jealousy. Another Titan (the legends say SILVERSTREAM, but that's unclear) stole the woman he loved; a citizen and non-hero by the name of CASSANDRA RAE. IO became so enraged his powers transmuted in on themselves changing him and his powers forever.

MASS EFFECT: Once known as IO, MASS EFFECT is the evil product of IO's rage. MASS EFFECT's only mission in life is to destroy all life. MASS EFFECT has an unusual power combination as a result of his "melt down". He has retained his super strength but his volcanism powers have been transmuted into gravity powers. MASS EFFECT is a true gravity brute. He uses a power called "Gravity Well" a shadowy disc that radiates out from his personage. Anyone "caught" in the disc's field adds to his damage/to hit exponentially based on the number of people in the field. In addition to "Gravity Well" he also uses "Black Hole". If you are not in the field of his gravity well, you soon will be. Black hole drags its target closer to him.

Enter...

FETE CO: The premier Party/Caterer/Event Planning Company. Owned and operated by none other than LADY FETE herself. Her staff comprises of PLANNERS, COORDINATORS, AIDES, STAFFERS, and has been known to pull out the CLOWNS and JUGGLERS from time to time. FETE CO isn't listed as a villainous organization but bad things seem to happen at their events.

SKEET: Friendly shotgun wielding cowboy who provides tips on occasion

GRETA & GRACE: conjoined twins with greasy black bobs that run the local diner

EMBARGO: big cigar smoking dock worker who isn't afraid to "take care of business"

SYLVAN GREH: Not much is known about SYLVAN GREH and no one is sure if he has any powers at all. He suddenly appeared about 10 years ago and has been a fixture of affluent society ever since. Has recently been seen at the annual mayors ball with CASSANDRA RAE slung across his arm.

NANA MAO: A DOPPLEGANGER of some importance who runs the cities largest drug ring, supplying "Winter White" to the inner city gangs. She reports only to the "CHINAMAN". She is difficult to find due to her changeling nature. However if you should happen to stumble across her den, Beware; she is surrounded be SANDMEN.

SANDMAN: An elderly Chinese warrior that is held in a comatose state while being fed winter white intravenously. Due to the constant high from the winter white, SANDMEN can astral project up to four copies of their youthful warrior selves when ever threatened. In times of great peril several SANDMEN have been known to meld their projections into one massive warrior.

DOPPLEGANGERS: changelings that morph into their assailant, using their attackers power sets against them. Usually DOPPLEGANGERS aren't that powerful and can only access your tier 1 powers. However, like NANA MAO, more powerful ones exist. MIMIC is said to be one, but he will deny it.

In the beginning god created Adam and EVE, or she would like to think so... EVE is a late 20ish Goth with long black raven hair and alabaster skin who thinks the world would cease to be without her in it. A minor villain who's powers weaken by day and peak at midnight.

KOUNTDOWN: minor villain who loves the "suspense" of a Titan in distress. Most devices he uses employ some type of timer or trigger mechanism.

REGINA DEWEY: Historian and keeper of the Titan Registry

ARTIC MINING CO: an organization that's prime objective is to take over the world (what else could there be for a nefarious villain group). The ARTIC MINING CO mines Scandium; a silvery white metal with the same properties of titanium but far lighter in weight. Scandium enables them to manufacture ultra light Mech Suits, massive hand held grenade and rocket launchers and most important of all ultra light orbital vehicles. Of the 5 members who sit on the board of directors only 1 is known, the "CHINAMAN".

ARTIC MINING SPACE CO: A subsidiary of its parent company, it is currently engaged in building a massive orbital platform from which it advertises "Mining in space to better serve mankind". GLIMPSE has seen otherwise and not wanting to upset the civilian population has quietly informed RUNICA and SHARD. What she doesn't know is there are 2 platforms.

SEAMUS FINNIGAN: Burly Titan in a kilt who yells a lot and swings a great rune encrusted battle axe.

This just in... HEIST is sending villains to the annual Mayor's Dinner and Address to the City. GLIMPSE is predicting a short list of names.

COTILLION: Skilled in the ways of crowd control. This young debutant can hold an entire ballroom captive in their own minds.

NAVETTE: Jewel thief. Bends and refracts light to weave glamour's to distract her targets.

SKYWRAITH: Petty villain who gets stuck driving the get-away van.

Surprise Surprise, FETE CO employed the 3 to serve hors d'oeuvre's at the event. What is a Surprise though is that while the room was held in COTILLION's thrall, SYLVAN GREH was the only one able to elude her hold.

FASHION PLAZA: Shopping mall where SYLVAN GREH went to buy his Grey Prada suit for the auspicious event. Also where any Titan or Villain can go to refresh their "look".

TEMPORAL TWINS: Or otherwise known as EVAN LIGHT & THE DARK ONE. At the time of IO's "melt down", SILVERSTREAM tried to contain IO'S rage in a sphere of Silverlight. But the forces at work were to much for SILVERSTREAM to handle and a massive explosion/feedback wave ensued, ripping his psyche in two and sending half to another dimensional plane. Its rumored that had SILVERSTREAM not used his Silverlight on IO at the time of his rage; MASS EFFECT and the TEMPORAL TWINS would never have been "born". But who's to say for sure.

The Wanderer - Neutral-Hero-aligned contact or NPC. Known for appearing out of shadows and skyscraper lookouts. Equipped with electronics-jamming devices and invisibility cloaks. Rumored to teleport, but this goes unverified.

Ankhemar, the Living Mummy:

I, Balance, release my contributions in this post under the Plan Z:The Phoenix Project/Missing Worlds Media/City of Titans Contributor License as of this date of April 24, 2014.

Ankhemar, the Living Mummy: An ancient priest who feared the gods' judgment of his corruption and magically preserved his living organs in enchanted canopic jars. Betrayed and sealed away in a tomb, his hollow husk has only recently returned to plague the world. [Villain.]

Invictus, the Solar Sorcerer: A mutant hero with the ability to project hard light constructs and light blasts. Ironically, Invictus is not very bright; he believes his powers are magical and casts "spells" to use them. [Potential rescue target/ally. A male Fusionette. :p ]

Foresight: A hero who (apparently) possesses substantial powers of precognition. In combat, his near-perfect knowledge of the immediate future effectively gives him super reflexes. However, he rarely engages in field work; his prescience warns him of emergencies as much as a day in advance, though the information is less precise, so he feels he can do more good directing other heroes and emergency services. He files precog reports every morning with police, fire departments, various super groups, and the weather service. [Potential contact.]

Not so much a NPC as a group

Not so much a NPC as a group (after a fashion, anyway):

Trap clown: Imagine something akin to a trapdoor spider, only it's a clown. Get too close to a manhole cover, door, basement/cellar/attic access, etc., and a clown with huge, creepy gripper hands has grabbed you. And, who knows, maybe that bump in the lawn or that mound of dirt really is a trapdoor hiding a clown...

?/Franklin Granger - An absent minded researcher, he designed a series of ground breaking chemical sprays he uses to subdue evil doers, heal the wounded, and remove the nastiest of sock oders. Unfortunately, he forgets his super hero alter ego name - even within the same conversation. So he announces himself as a different name every time. Examples are Mist Man, Super Aero, Nasal Assaulter, Dr.Smell, The Respirator.

B.T. Team - Bev and Trevor Avelo - These two teenage siblings of terror mean good, they really do. However they tend to cause more harm than good while thwarting evil doers and helping those in distress. While stopping a bank robbery, they hosed down the police with quick hardening foam they borrowed from their father's construction company at the wrong moment - leading to the escape of the robbers. Another they were helping an old lady change her car tire, but modified the vehicle with their mother's borrowed experimental nanite transformers - which turned the car into a humanoid raging berzerker. Their executive and well connected parents believe their cute little crime stoppers mean well, and will learn in time. The city can only hope that comes sooner rather than later.

"Cranky" - Locals know him as his nickname, his real name is Jim Fronse. A normal guy, rather heavyset, auto mechanic, really doesn't want to get involved. But he has his ear to the street and has connections. If anyone needs to know where to get a part, no matter how advanced or questionable he can probably point you in the right direction.

...can't sleep, clowns will eat me...can't sleep clowns will eat me...

(This is in no way has any bearing on actual fact, like as in staying at my Grandmother's home who had clown statues and pictures EVERYWHERE! One particular clown had a foot raised on a tree stump, a giant mallet slung over his shoulder, and I swear the most sadistic grin as if he'd just bashed someone's head in with that thing...*shudders*.) Well great now I'm not going to get any sleep tonight...

Coprolalia After a difficult-to-reproduce sequence of events involving radioactive throat lozenges, a hand mixer, a rubber ducky, 5 kilos of lemons, and a kazoo, Carla Lobelia gained the power of harsh language. When directed at someone in anger, Carla's speech becomes so foul, demeaning, and profane as to leave hardened criminals helplessly sobbing in tears. Her brief attempt at a superheroic career ended with the accidental death of Vinny "The Musk Ox" Moscone during a botched arrest attempt.

Carla spends much of her free time working off her 80,000 hours of mandatory community service by helping out as needed at a scared-straight program for first-time offenders. Although technically Carla does not suffer from Tourette syndrome, the story of her struggle to use her power for the greater good has touched many in the Tourette's community, and occasionally she participates in events to raise awareness or money for the condition in turn.

Thief Catcher Whenever trouble comes calling, you can always expect Thief Catcher to get in the way...of the police, the fire department, the army, or anyone else better qualified to help. Sporting a dapper old-time police uniform, and a truly stupendous mustache, this determined do-gooder takes the risks that nobody else would, or should. Only a demonstrated resistance to damage saves our hapless hero from serious harm as he gets caught in crossfires, closes windows on both hands at once, climbs into steaming exhaust vents, becomes trapped in revolving doors, or accidentally removes the steering wheel of his vintage police vehicle during chases.

Generally good by nature, but is pragmatic and can be quite ruthless if forced to battle and prefers to help behind the scenes and out of the limelight. Very few knows her real name as she always introduces herself as her alias.

Holders of the street

A hero faction made up of Urban druids or as they like to call themselves "Street Shamans". Their leader who goes by the name "The Eldest" was taught the ways of the shaman by a man who's son he saved from a mustard gas attack initiated by Vietcong soldiers when he served in Vietnam. The shaman's son was a peasant farmer working the fields and while he knew nothing of medicine his father did. He was nursed back to health, and while he was classified dead by his nation even after the war was over. He was taught in the way of the shaman. He was to see without his eyes even though his eyes couldn't be saved from the mustard, he was taught to control the air and plant life around and talk to beasts. Now he has come back to the city he once lived, seeing life and nature where others turn a blind eye. After a long while of preaching about his religion he has started a "church" of his own. They protect the city and all who live there because as shamans of there street it is there duty.

The group is separated into 4 factions

Holders of the bird have been sworn to a life in the sky even those who have not learned how to fly yet. They live on the rooftops of the city to the point that a jump from one rooftop, no matter how far, is no different to them than crossing a street. Their signature weapon is a grappling hook with a very long chain which they call a sky hook which to them is a tool as much as a weapon. The higher ups in the way of the bird have forgotten what it feels like to touch the ground. The leader of this faction is a woman by the name of Dove. An albino woman who used to be a ballet dancer until an attack from the 5 dragons, who the studio she worked for failed to pay money to, left her with a broken leg. When she was distraught the Eldest healed her leg with a healing salve and a prayer to the spirits of the city. In time she began to trust him and learned from him the magic of the wind.

Holders of the bug have a tendency to creep out everyone they meet, sometimes even themselves, but they are no less devoted to their cause. They work best in swarms, the more there are in a group they stronger they become (meaning that all of there best powers are ones that buff others). Higher ups in the way of the bug can summon powerful avatars of bug spirits (Bug bosses should be pets/support masters). They are lead by Kru, Once an insectoid alien merchant who decided to sell his wares on earth he soon became addicted to the various drugs being sold in the street and became a shadow of his former self, that is until the Eldest helped him kick his habits and became his second apprentice.

Holders of the weed live in the parks of the city. Always surrounded by the plants they care so much for they live tents in a perpetual state of camping. They work with plants and can make them bend and grow at will. The higher ups in the way of the weed are feared for their control of their environment. They are lead by Thorn a treant who awoke from his slumber to realize his home forest has been reduced to a park. Angry he lashed out at the world but calmed by the words of the Eldest saying that his home isn't gone but rather changed. He become his third apprentice.

Holders of the rodent are the sword of the holders of the street. They combine their knowledge of shaman magic with modern day weapons and are the most offensive in battle. Higher up in the way of the way of the rodent have been known to take on small armies with nothing more than a carpet of biting rats and a cloud of bats. They are lead by a man who goes by the name Ratshank. A hitman who came to the eldest for a chance at redemption, he obliged and now serves as his 4th apprentice to date.

Those who hate them call them squatters and thieves, those who love them call them protectors of the common man and the little people of the city. One thing is for certain however, aslong as their are gangs who hurt the innocent, they will be there to fight back.

Bal Torrenz Feld(Torrenz): A beast like man(more man than beast) and a deep thinker of sorts. Always one to think out a strategy than act on impulse to apply the damage needed and win the day. It is said that he is from a future time and a far away galaxy.

Black Obelisk: Living stone, once used for satanic worship, was acquired by some rather high profile villains as a catalyst for a new weapon. The villains had used nuclear components with ore of unknown properties. It was believed the ore would greatly increase the power of this weapon but they were wrong and the obelisk came to life with power of which its natural half-life wouldn't slow the creature down in the slightest.

The Bloody Ripper(Rafishstil): A creature born of chaos and torment, unknowing pulled into another world by a misguided scientist. This creature, on it's on plain, was a raged and mindless beast. As its time in our world lingered, it began to develop thought and identity.

Exodus Kemper: The soul of ruthless tyrant that got stripped from it owner in a final movement to end the tyrants reign. The soul wandered through time and space until it game to world where it could take a physical form. Physical or not, this shadow being retain the power of hell fire from its former master and harnessed the power of vapor-is form.

Kirk Thrasher: A nobody that could shoot a gun with aim that no computer could be as precise. Feeling tired of being a nobody, he quickly learned that he had the greatest ability that no super powered being could contend with - a silver tongue. With this power, he was able to sway the most loyal henchman, thug and crook from their ways to fight for him that he could summon at his own need.

Link Jadus: A retired cop who lost his wife to the forces of darkness. He traded his soul to this same darkness for new life to battle for his lost love. But will this new power devour him before he has a chance rid the world of this darkness?

Model '85: An outdated bodyguard robot was upgraded with an emotion software to provide him with a pleasant disposition by his previous owner. When he was finally scrapped, he ended up in a mad-scientists landfill where he was able to remake himself physically and mentally to become his own master. This is not good thing for any human who uses machines as tools and not living creatures.

Ollie the Axe: A large and dimwitted logger has a stroke stronger than any machine.

Project ExFire(Kit Beals): A marine with a lost past, enrolled into a project to create fire with consciousness. For sometime, he was a glorified fire bat, relying heavily on his technology to achieve his goals. As time went on and upgrades where added, his humanity diminished as the remaining flesh melded with machine could generate and control the element with a skill that the world never knew fire could do.

Pure Hope(Hope Jadus): A bright scientist and daughter of hero Link Jadus, worked for a research facility perfecting a new means of travel, portals, at the request of her father to keep her as far away from possible danger. When a stabilize prototype led, not through space, but dimensions, pulling a creature of great horror into our world and attacked everything. Destroying resources of different elements and nearly killing Hope. She awoke in a hospital fully healed after only days with new psychic and telekinetic abilities.

Crunch - a small time super villain that has the 'superpower' of being 4 times more susceptible to gravity than a normal human being. This has heavily stunted his growth but has given him a strong dense body, high constitution and signature moves of pile driver punches and ambush from above attacks. (The idea being if gravity had more of an effect on him it would give him much greater impact force in downward motions. Pile driver punches, stamping on feet etc. ;)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Chain Gang - A group of escaped convicts, That started in the 40's when a bus load of prisoners overpowered their supervisors and escaped into the city. There are super powered and unpowered members of both genders.

Leg Irons - The current leader of the chain gang, the name passes from one person to another, whoever is top dog at the time.

Shackles - Veteran members that have been on a number of heists and haven't been caught / captured. favored weapons are heavy chains - are expected to plan more complicated / daring heists.

Ganger - New members, the fodder of the gang. Usually involved in street muggings and other street level crime. Initiates yet to prove themselves still Wear their orange (or B&W striped) shirts on the streets and seen as a way of taunting law enforcement so they can prove their worth against them.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DB (DEEBEE) - He runs a newspaper stand on a busy street corner, he's got a knack for recognizing patterns in the various activities reported in the news papers. A little too eccentric for the government to take seriously and if it's not been in his newsstand he won't know much about it.

Java - A paramedic that has gained the power to stimulate body and mind to work to their maximum potential; this can be the difference between keeping someone alive long enough to fight a serious injury or deadly disease. Simply being in her presence keeps you alert and full of energy.

Arc - An accident on a building site has given him the ability to cut and fuse metal with his fingers, he is also able to use this ability to destroy simple electronics by overloading it with an instant *zap!* (beyond the obvious of cutting it to pieces which would be significantly slower) How he uses those abilities is something even he is still undecided on.

At the latest "induction to the Titan registry" ceremony, REGINA DEWEY was writing in the name of the latest Titan Cadet when the lights in the building went out. When the lights came on again the latest inductee was gone.... GLIMPSE is working on the where a bouts of the inductee but is having trouble picking up the trail

PILASTER: latest inductee and missing Titan. PILASTER is a master of weakness exploitation and is at his best when other Titans are around take advantage of his powers.

KOMODO: Right hand to the CHINAMAN and martial arts master. KOMODO likes to work alone but if forced to team up with other unsavory characters, then he likes to sneak in and steal the killing strike. NANA MAO and KOMODO are intense rivals but since they both work for the CHINAMAN, an uneasy truce between the two has been struck. PILASTER would know how to use their hatred for each other to his and his teams advantage but since he is missing....

CHINAMAN: the CHINAMAN is only a name. Know one knows who he is. Not even his closest associates have seen his face, making him one of the most elusive villains around. What is known is that he is one of five that run the ARTIC MINING CO. and it's subsidiaries. Not even the other four board members have seen his face

HARROW: Sometimes Titan sometimes villain, HARROW walks the middle path of purgatory tilling the celestial soil and sowing fortunes and distrust on either side; watering the seeds with his tears. HARROW is a "wild card" at the best of times and if ever his help is sought, it should only be at the most dire of times and then only with a full party.

DAWN: A young Titan in the prime of her youth, DAWN is best friends with EVAN LIGHT. She uses her powers of first light and soothing mist to comfort him when the dark one is uncontrollable.

Toliver Mayfield: In the super-heroic community when you need answers about ancient languages, spells, curses and the names of unknowable demonic powers, you usually seek out your super-group's resident magus, but when they don't know, it's always Toliver that gets a visit. Toliver is a gaunt, polite and learned man who has an innate magical ability for figuring out secrets and ciphers, making him one of the most respected members of the magic community. He lives in a small French Colonial home 40 miles North of the city by a serene lake, but his property is said to almost always be enclosed in fog and impenetrable by all but those who have a true need to speak with him, it is even claimed he had the home built in 1795, since no one is sure of his age, and more amazingly, that he used some of the rubble from the Tower of Babel to build his amazing house. It should also be said that if you ever have to visit him, you'll probably be just as amazed at his wine cellar as you are his intimate understanding of the 7000 year old cultist manifesto you're having translated.

Standing outside an old run down warehouse at 9:00 am with a detective from the Titan City Police Department is not my idea of a good morning, thought WILL CEIVERS. What the hell are we doing here anyway? In the last 4 hours I've had the privilege of watching the sun come up with the city's garbage trucks and homeless filth, and OFFICER HAWKINS is no picnic either. Why do I keep getting stuck with these hack job missions? Just once I wish DIPLOMAT would give me a mission worthy of my talents instead of chasing after the URCHINS and lesser petty thieves. It's so tempting to just bust right in but HAWKINS hasn't given the signal yet. What is he waiting for? *sigh* WHIPWIRE, PELT, TROUNCE; no those don't sound good. Picking a name for oneself is probably the hardest task I've had from the academy yet. "Go Go Go" screeched over his head set jarring him back to reality. In all of 2 minutes the excitement was over. WILL stood in the middle of an empty warehouse, bullwhips hanging limply by his side. Looking around the main room WILL was amazed; nothing not even a chair or box or table. Just nothing, another god damn dead end and a waste of a perfectly decent morning. As he walked out the building with the rest of the team his mind started to wander back to the ever present task. THRESH, SWITCH, WALLOP, he step right over the only clue in the place. A playing card, the ace of diamonds, peeking out from under the door sill.

PIT BOSS, DEALER, BANKER, CHIPS, ROULETTE, DOUBLE DOWN (D2): casino themed villain group

ABA (AMERICAN "BAR" ASSOCIATION): CROWBAR, REBAR, LEAD PIPE, and RAIL.

BULWARK: a big strapping fellow who oddly enough always has a smile one his face and a carefree way of say "oh no no, you can't go by". BULWARK serves as an anchor to his team, suppressing knock back and providing sure footing to allies. His offensive powers are super strength and mass acceleration. Best friends with DIPLOMAT.

*in regards to post # 79. I wrote the post then started reading the forums and discovered BULWARK is being considered as an AT, however I think it would make a good character name as well.

THE STRATEGISTS: ROOK, BISHOP, and "KING" are a citizen planning team that works for the mayors office. Their code names are for protection purposes since they are the only ones that have access to the plan set room; which holds the plans for every building, bridge, or construct built in the city. If any villains ever had access to the room, there is no telling what kind of trouble could be had.

XYLEM: a woman with an affinity for all things flora. Plant powers

VARRO: a scholarly recluse who claims to posses the original copy of the lesser seal of Solomon. VARRO plans to use the lesser seal to resurrect the Cumaean Sibyl in the hopes she will recreate the 9 Sibylline books. VARRO's pursuit of lost and forbidden knowledge has put him on the wrong side of the law many many times. A little murder is nothing to him if it means another grimoire to add to his collection. One text that still eludes him is the Carthax Bestiary. Since the ALERION MAGE is in possession of it and the SABLE GAURD, there is no way he can get close enough to claim it for himself.

SLYNK: bendy stretchy bendy stalker

In an office suite on 86 floor of the North Wessex Tower, DIPLOMAT is pacing back and forth between the floor to ceiling windows and the long ebony conference table; wondering what went wrong with the WILL CEIVERS mission, all the intel was there. RUNICA's gaze floated back and forth between DIPLOMAT and the Candlewick Tower off in the distance. He is too trusting she thought, too nurturing, too... too. Its what makes him a great leader but it's a good thing I'm here to balance him out. "What are we going to do now? What is the next step" she asked him. "Well, we will need to wait for PALLAS' next move""in the mean time let's consult with GLIMPSE and see what's out there". RUNICA leaned over in her chair and hit the intercom button "Charlotte, get in touch with GLIMPSE and tell her DIPLOMAT wishes to speak with her". "Right away" piped back through the speaker. Turning back toward DIPLOMAT she said "Well, this will probably turn out to be a long waiting game now that PALLAS knows we are on to her. It also makes it a much more dangerous game we are playing. I would suggest not using any more Titan Cadets for the time being, especially in light of PILASTERS kidnapping". "I'm not convinced that PALLAS is behind the kidnapping. There is no motive there. But you are right about about the Cadets, I won't send anymore into dangerous situations they are not ready for" DIPLOMAT said. But who decides if they are ready or not? RUNICA thought.

PALLAS: aka THE QUEEN OF SPADES enjoys manipulating the "beneath", as she calls the citizens of the city, just for the fun of it. Cold and calculating, she has fomented plans years out in advance. Ever patient ever vigilant, she is happy in the knowledge that there is no free will; only her will.

the spirit of creeping doom.

a spirit that possesses various hero statues, and uses them to attack the nearest living things. making even the most sacred objects, and places, a morbid hell. each time a statue is defeated, the city thinks the threat ended forever. they fix the statue, and all the players wonder which statue will be next......

perhaps add a zone wide clocktower gong that rings 13 times before it possesses a statue. a gong that never even otherwise rings out the hour. let the eyes of the statue blink a few times with light from within, and then have a few cracks appear with light pouring out from within.

what better way to make a npc statue, or a player statue more famous, than to have it kick your ass?

ambush after a mission involving a technology oriented group.
hot mom, in sexy clothes pushing a baby stroller. when she nears the player, she talks his/her name out loud and asks if the player could take a picture with her. then regardless of answer, turns into a robot with claws and attacks. the baby stroller turns into a fast crawling machine as well with heavy range shooting.

this mom might ask instead of the opening message above:

cursed loot.
to be added into normal loot at the end of minor/major mission campaigns. not to take away from loot tables, but add a chance that this drops along with whatever else might drop there.

golden genie lamp. - the genie inside is sexy, and unhappy. very unhappy. and moody...... may be sold on market unrubbed. disappears after being rubbed. despite surviving the encounter or not.

little black box with a button - if button is pushed a clone of you attacks. may be sold on market unused. disappears after being activated. despite surviving the encounter or not.

gold gilted framed oil painting- if they click to try to read the nameplate for the title of the work, or a artisit's name, a well dressed ghost artist attacks with nobleman's ghost hounds. may be sold on the market. disappears after being activated. despite surviving the encounter or not.

What a man thinks of himself, that is what determines, or rather indicates, his fate. - Henry David Thoreau

Alan Rook: Once known as the silver age villain "The Gentleman" Alan has since hung up his cape and top hat once super villains began killing people. He now works for the government making anti-super technology and will occasionally go on a rant about "the good old days" and how villains today have no class or honour.

Trap clown: Imagine something akin to a trapdoor spider, only it's a clown. Get too close to a manhole cover, door, basement/cellar/attic access, etc., and a clown with huge, creepy gripper hands has grabbed you. And, who knows, maybe that bump in the lawn or that mound of dirt really is a trapdoor hiding a clown...

I like this.

When people ask me about my religion, I tell 'em I'd worship Cthulhu.

I, Shinzakura, release my contributions in this post under the Plan Z:The Phoenix Project/Missing Worlds Media/City of Titans Contributor License as of this date of 14Aug02.

American Legionnaire: Long-retired Golden Age hero, domino mask and patriotic outfit, the man with the golden left hook. Though he mostly sits in the park and reminisces about the old days, he's still got his ears to the ground and knows what's going on in the community.
Assassin Stars: three Russian-raised freelance mercenaries, all female: Aldebaran, Merope and Polaris (the leader.) They'll take the mission if the price is right, and they're not above playing both sides for profit.
Datastream: A young woman who, due to an unfortunate accident involving magic and technology, got zapped right into the information stream. Now, literally living on the internet, she spies on villainous information and works to get it to the authorities and heroes as quickly as possible.
The King in Red: unhinged, royalty-themed Welsh master thief. Believes its his duty to restore his lost kingdom by gathering the royal treasures strewn throughout the world so that ancient spirits will raise his island realm. Whether any of it is true is up for debate.
The Seagull: Female eco-terrorist out there "fighting the good fight" against the "explotativeing" [sic] politicians, bankers, etc. More of an annoyance than a true threat, but has a really bad habit of popping up and getting in the way whenever a major crisis needs to be stopped.
Rhapsody: Music-based heroine. The Seagull's "nemesis". Also as inept as her counterpart, though she does her best to right the wrongs...or at least prevent major property damage.
Cataphract: Hero, can turn his body into inpenetrable armor. His family has had the gift since the days of the English War of the Roses. Currently the thirteenth to bear the name, his day job is a florist, always with a smile and a helping hand for other heroes.

Lightning Face: An idiot born with both electricity control powers and super strength is a laughing stock among even the worst of the worst of supervillains. He's way to stupid to use his powers effectively and while he could be a serious threat in an otherwise normal city, in titan city, a place where the store clerk of the place your trying to rob having the ability to shoot lasers out of his eyes is a very real possibility, he is just laughably inept in his career as a super villain. He dresses in all black, with spikes and skull decals in an attempt to look intimidating.

The Enforcer: In life Alex Mason was a drug addict and nothing more. A good man at heart who had fallen on hard times and who has never hurt anyone in his life other than himself was shot by a punisher-type vigilante in the 1990's. Now he's back as an undead horror killing any vigilante he can find until his blood lust is sated. His powers are that of a darkness and debuff focused body guard, and all he wears is the tattered street clothes of what he wore in life with the hood of his hoodie up concealing his rotting face in complete darkness.

The Investor: A mysterious old man in a business suit who is so skinny and frail you could swear even a small 6 year old child could break him over their leg. He has no known powers other than appearing before people in need and granting them a single wish. Mysteriously anyone reported accepting his wish start becoming more corrupt and evil while gaining demonic powers inspired by their wishes. Orphans who have wished for parents start developing the ability to take control of the minds of others, terminally ill patients who wished their diseases away start gaining the ability to regenerate, and actors who wish for their dream role start gaining the ability to shape shift. He only seems to target people who have never heard of him before.

Mr Grizzly: A Sasquatch who's part of the Rooks. Not necessarily evil, but more really stupid and in a bad situation. After moving from his farm to titan city he befriended an Orphan girl named Sally Katt, when she got sick however Grizzly very stupidly took out a loan from the rooks to pay for her hospital bills, as payment however when he failed to pay them off they said that he had to work off the debt. Now he's stuck in a criminal organization while they all but literally hold a knife to his surrogate daughter's throat.

I have a small problem with

I have a small problem with this thread. Intentional and non-intentional original character (OC) theft. As people browse the internet, reminisce, and something inspires them, they may decide to post it here and now something that does not belong to the poster has been gifted to the game. It may not be intentional a confluence of memories half remembered conspire to make the thought seem original. I think it would be tragic to log into the game and find that my name is on the "can not be used" list because something in game uses that same name. Some might say it would be an honor to be in the game. I wouldn't consider it an honor if the character who looks like mine and/or has my name has not had my input in it's creation. It takes away from the originality of the owner. They would no longer be the clever individual that came up with the character and their OC would be a knockoff.

I just hope that we can be sensitive and realize that this thread, and art in general, is not created in a vacuum. We should take pains to ensure that what actually goes into the game wont steal from talent that came before.
