Level 20-24

There's an amazing guy named Tyler French who runs a youth sports program; it keeps troubled teens off the streets. He hears a lot and likes to help heroes out, especially with the Tsoo and the Warriors. Tyler has access to Training Enhancements.

Tyler is really great for the kids, Character. Help him out however you can.

I'd like you to go see my friend Piper Irving. She's an anthropologist working here in the city. She knows a ton about the obscure beliefs of the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. Piper knows where to get Training Enhancements.

I am sure you will find Piper quite knowledgeable.

Detective Rondel Jackson is a great guy to talk to if you want the police perspective on groups like the Sky Raiders and the Council. He's also the one to talk to if you need Training Enhancements.

I've been asked to introduce you to Lt. Gosford from the Paragon City Police Department. He runs a special unit that is focused on bringing down the Sky Raiders and the Council. Gosford's connections within the department give him access to Training Enhancements.

Gosford is used to working with heroes. You will get along fine.

I'd love for you to meet Polly Cooper. She's a coordinator for the Civil Air Patrol, and she knows a lot about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Polly has access to Training Enhancements.

Miss Cooper is very skilled at her job and should prove to be a valuable asset to you.

If you are looking for a partner to help you take down the Banished Pantheon, Andrea Mitchell would be a great choice. She is very dedicated and her connections are top notch. She also has a lot of interest in the Circle of Thorns. Andrea has access to Training Enhancements.

I have a good feeling about you and Andrea.

Level 25-29

I'd like you to introduce yourself to Ashwin Lannister from Hero Corps. They may be a for-profit organization, but they get the job done. He is currently focused on the Council and the Warriors. He has access to Training Enhancements.

Hero Corps doesn't always get the best press, but they are effective. Good luck, and keep your eyes open.

You should go see Collin Larson. He's a cybernetics expert and a real friend to heroes everywhere. He knows a great deal about the Freakshow and the Family. He also has Training Enhancements.

Collin is well suited to work with a hero like you, Character.

Eliza Thorpe from the Missing Persons Bureau has asked to see you. She could really use your help with the Devouring Earth and the Rikti. She needs to know what part they may be playing in the disappearance of Paragon City citizens. She has access to Training Enhancements.

Eliza will work very hard to help you. She is extremely dedicated to returning Paragon City to the hands of the people who live here.

Level 30

Jenny Firkins is an environmentally conscious scientist who has a personal stake in bringing down the Devouring Earth and Crey. She is very dedicated to her work with science heroes and has access to Invention and Genetic Alteration Enhancements.

Jenny cares very much about Paragon City, Character. I think you will find working with her a pleasure.

I'd love for you to work with Phillipa Meraux, a former hero who now specializes in counter-terrorism. Go and see her if you want more information on the Rikti or Crey. She works primarily with natural heroes and has access to Gadget and Relic Enhancements.

Phillipa is very demanding, but her sources are top notch.

Neal Kendrick has a lot of dirt on the Freakshow and Nemesis. He used to be with the FCC, but now he concentrates on helping heroes with their investigations. He works primarily with technological heroes and has access to Invention and Gadget Enhancements.

You will enjoy working with Neal. He is determined and skilled.

You should introduce yourself to Jose Escalante, an important business man who helps heroes fight criminals who impact business and commerce, such as the Council and the Devouring Earth. He works mostly with mutants and has access to Focus and Genetic Alteration Enhancements.

Jose is the kind of person that has kept Paragon City running, despite all the disasters we've faced. We can all learn a lot from him.

Information

Police Liaison

There are some in the department who criticize both Detective Basinns and his partner Detective Croquette for placing their personal style over their jobs, but those critics don't understand that their style is important to the kind of undercover work they must do.

Wrong Detective

I think you're supposed to be working with Detective Croquette, Character. Now, don't cramp my style.

Too Low Level

You need to get a bit more experience before you're ready to help me. Come back when you're above security level 20.

Initial Contact

You need Police Band frequencies? I got that for you. You help out on some of those, we'll let you know when something big is going down.

Now that you've gotten a Police Radio, you can start scanning Police chatter to hear about the crimes as they're committed in your current zone. You can then act on a report by selecting it from the Police Radio, listed under your Contacts.

Greeting

Be cool, Character.

Too Busy

I need your total focus, Character. If you want to help me, then handle some of your other missions first.

No More Missions

The streets have gotten quiet. Me, I'm a guy who likes action. You want to find something going on, it might be time for you to move on.

Missions

Protect Steel Canyon bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

This is bad, Character. Arachnos is planning an attack on Steel Canyon. We think their main objective is the bank, but they've brought a villain with them, and they're out to cause as much destruction as possible. If you can help, then please go to Steel Canyon to protect the bank and stop the attack! We got the alarm signal from the bank, so make haste and get over to the bank. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

It gets worse. The Family and the Tsoo in Steel Canyon are aware of the heist, and both groups are looking at this as a way to gain ground against the other, and they won't care who gets hurt. The more of them you stop, the better off the city will be.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Go protect Steel Canyon!

Mission Objective(s)

Steel Canyon is in chaos! Arachnos troops are causing mayhem, members of the Family are standing around key locations acting suspicious, and the Tsoo are taking advantage of the anarchy in the streets.

  • Protect Steel Canyon bank

You saved Steel Canyon!

Protect Independence Port bank

While listening for the latest signs of trouble, you hear a call asking for heroes to speak with Contact directly. Something big is happening.

Briefing

We've just learned that a Villain from the Rogue Isles is about to attack Independence Port in a mission of mayhem and bank robbery, aided by members of the Family. The City needs her defenders to get over to Independence Port and protect the city and the bankfrom those villains! We have seen a live videofeed of the bank, and it is under attack as we speak, so you should head over there quick. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating vandals and completing side missions.

Mission Acceptance

We know that the villain is working with the Family for this mission, but we've also learned that the Council is planning to take to the streets themselves to take advantage of the situation. While your main objective is going to be the villain and the members of the Family, stopping any bad guys will be less of a burden for the P.P.D. reinforcements.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Refusal

What?! I understand, Character. You no doubt have some very important things to do. We'll do our best to stop them, but it doesn't look good.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Go protect Independence Port!

Mission Objective(s)

You've reached Independence Port just as the attack began. Go find the members of the Family that are causing the mayhem and trying to rob the bank. Teach them a lesson they won't forget!
