Detective Martins is a hero contact in the Bronze Way neighborhood of Steel Canyon at coordinates (-4579.6, -802.0, 1212.4). Detective Martins is a Police Band contact. He is located inside the Paragon Police Department.

Martins occasionally moonlights as the Shadow Commando, a hero unlicensed by the FBSA.

He functions as the Safeguard Mission contact as does Detective Rogers.

Level 10-14

I know a private eye named Wes Schnabel who wants to talk to you about the Council. He's always looking for new contacts and good heroes to work with. He usually takes cases in Steel Canyon.

Schnabel is a good, old-fashioned gumshoe.

Level 15-19

There's a technology expert named Fareed Abdullah you should talk to. He's a very interesting guy and knows a great deal about the Clockwork and the Lost. Fareed deals with folks out of Steel Canyon these days.

Fareed is very kind and courteous.

There's a Hmong businessman named Kong Bao who's a real leader in his community. You should talk to him. I'm sure you'd find him quite helpful, especially when it comes to the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. Mr. Kong has strong ties to Skyway City.

You will be helping a great man, Character.

Dr. Ann-Marie Engles is a real expert in the field of cybernetics. She is fascinated with the technical aspect of the Vahzilok and the social impact of the Outcasts. Dr. Engles has set up shop in Skyway City.

You'll learn a lot from Dr. Engles; she's always happy to lend heroes a hand.

I know this guy, his name's Cho Ge. He's a little shady. He even used to be a gangster, but these days he's working for the good guys. He knows everything about the Tsoo and the Council. Cho Ge hangs out in Skyway City nowadays.

As long as you watch your step with Cho Ge, you will benefit from his knowledge

Information

Police Liaison

Detective Martins is still recovering from some personal trauma, and some on the force think he's a loose weapon. But he's still been a great help to many of the city's heroes, and an outstanding cop.

Wrong Detective

Okay, so there's some Malta guys I need you to take... Oh, no, wait. You're Character, right? You're supposed to be working with Detective Rogers. Aw, don't worry about it. Probably a pencil-pusher at HQ got that messed up.

Too Low Level

Don't take this the wrong way, but sending you out right now would be suicide. And that's something I don't want. So, toughen yourself up, and come back when you're at least security level 5. We can talk then.

Initial Contact

Well, let's get this started. I'm Detective Martins, and I'm a cop. No, really. And I'm here to help you. First, let me make sure you have the police radio codes, and then, you do some stuff around here and we'll be able to send priority alerts to you. That'll be fun, trust me.

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

  • You ready to take on the world?
  • How ya doing, Character?

Too Busy

Now, I'm all for taking on too much, but I'm a cop and stuff, and they like you to follow rules and things, so I can't give you anything until you're finished with all the other things you're doing.

No More Missions

Huh. You think there's not much going on? Well, you're right, there isn't.

Missions

Protect Kings Row 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

A villain from the Rogue Isles has shown up in Kings Row, intent on robbing the bank with an army of Skulls. We need heroes to go to Kings Row and protect the bank from that villain! The robbers have probably made their way to the bank by now, so you should make your way there immediately. 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

The villain has enlisted the help of the Skulls to do the job. They must be stopped as well. Other villains have heard about the heist, too, and are trying to take advantage of the situation. Most notable, the Clockwork.

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 Kings Row!

Mission Objective(s)

You run over to Kings Row as fast as you can. While the Skulls are trying to take out the bank vault, the Clockwork are taking advantage of the situation by taking over the streets. You'll have to keep an eye out for the vandals causing mayhem while corralling the Clockwork in the process.

  • Protect Kings Row bank

You saved Kings Row!

Debriefing

Great work, Character! Kings Row is now a safer place thanks to you!

Mission Failure

You did your best, I guess this task was just too much for you.

Protect Skyway City 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 going to attack Skyway City, intent on robbing the bank and causing mayhem! To make matters worse, the Lost are somehow connected to this, and have been swarming into the zone. Paragon City needs her heroes to get over to Skyway City and protect the city and the bank from that villain. The robbers have already struck, 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 the Lost are central to what's happening, but we've also learned that the Trolls are going to hit the streets in force to take advantage of the chaos. Your main objective is still to stop the Lost and the villain before they ruin the city and get into the bank, but stopping other villains from causing trouble would also be a great help.

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 Skyway City!

Mission Objective(s)

This isn't going to be easy. The Trolls have alerted the Lost to your presence and are planning to stop you from interfering in the bank robbery. The Lost are roaming around causing mayhem and preparing themselves for the attack on the bank vault.

  • Protect Skyway City bank
    • Stop the Bank Robbery

You saved Skyway City!
