Information

Mad Scientist

Doctor Creed is a mad scientist who has taken to researching the Infected on Mercy Island in hopes of unlocking the source of their power. It is rumored he was a former SERAPH scientist until he tired of their moral and ethical imperatives.

Prior to Introduction

You are not worthy enough to bask in the genius of Doctor Creed!

Initial Contact

Ah, you must be Character! I am the infamous Doctor Creed! You may have heard of my genius... I was once part of the illustrious brain trust at SERAPH until I learned what fools my so-called peers were! They tossed around words like 'ethics' and 'morals'... bah! Such things are minor obstacles on the path leading to true breakthroughs in SCIENCE!

I've been studying the Infected on Mercy Island for a while, researching these living zombie-men who have become nothing more than pathetic rejects of humanity. They believe they can gain power by subsisting on the toxic cesspool waters of Mercy Island — and you've seen the results of that! However, I believe at the root of their madness lies a grain of truth, the ability for an Infected to become a true super-powered being! If there is power to be gained through experimentation on these Infected, then the genius of Doctor Creed will find it!

Too Low Level

What? You think you can be of assistance to the illustrious Doctor Creed? Bah! Come talk to me when you're at least Threat Level 5! I don't have time to baby-sit you otherwise!

Greeting

  • Salutations, Character.
  • Come! Let us do SCIENCE!
  • Have you come to assist me with my experimentation?

Too Busy

Missing Too Busy Dialogue

No More Missions

Your utility is at an end, Character - I can continue my experiments without your assistance. Why don't you speak with Mikey the Ear or Drea the Hook in Port Oakes?

Store

You may prove yourself to be something more than a lackey yet, Character! Let us keep in closer touch: call me on my cell phone if you need to speak with me.

Check out what my store has to offer.

  • Level 5 Training Enhancements (200% base costs)

Most impressive, Character! Most impressive!

I have more things in my store if you require further assistance.

  • Level 10 Training Enhancements (200% base costs)

Weird Science

Souvenir: Dr. Geist's Test Tube

This is a test tube taken from the lab of Doctor Geist, Arachnos scientist and rival of your contact Doctor Creed. You obtained it in a story you like to call:

Weird Science

It all started when you agreed to field test a new Infected anti-serum. Upon your return Doctor Creed related that he discovered something rather important.

An Arachnos informant had some information on the source of the csspool contamination which creates the Infected, but the informant had been captured by Longbow before he could relate it. Doctor Creed gave you the location of the warehouse where Longbow was interrogating the informant, and you managed to break him out. The informant was an Arachnos guard at Fort Cerberus, and related how the there was some sort of biochemical project happening in a secret lab theter led by a scientist known as Doctor Geist. Doctor Creed was furious! Geist was a former colleague of Creed who stole Creed's mutation theories for himself! Now Geist sold out to Arachnos while Creed was struggling to survive in the Rogue Isles! Doctor Creed swore vengeance!

Doctor Creed sent you to break into Fort Cerberus to find Doctor Geist! Within the bowels of this Arachnos base you found the secret lab the informant spoke of, where strange experiments were being conducted. You defeated Doctor Geist and stole his research data, discovering how mutant human-spider hybrids called Arachnoids were being studied at the lab after being shipped there from a place known as Grandville. Doctor Creed was overjoyed with the defeat of this rival and the research information gained on the Arachnoids.


Test Infected anti-serum on Stricken

Briefing

As a scientist, one must always have contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. What's the point in creating an army of super-powered zombie-men when they can turn on you at any moment and rend you limb from limb? It's extremely counter-productive to any long-term goals of world domination!

As a part of risk mitigation I have developed a new Infected 'anti-serum' which causes the chemical equivalent of a chain reaction in weaker Infected, with some rather spectacular results! The least of the Infected are called the Stricken - they have the right bio-chemical balance to trigger the effect we're looking for. Go out and test the anti serum on the Stricken!

Mission Acceptance

A pack of these Infected have broken into a local warehouse. I should be a good testing ground for the anti-serum. As an added bonus, I can later use it as a testing ground for my experiments! Ha ha! Two birds with one stone!

Temporary Power

Upon accepting this mission, a villain will earn the Infected Anti-Serum temporary power.

Temp Melee Moderate.png Infected Anti-Serum Melee Special (Infected)
This dispenser is filled with an Infected Anti-Serum created by Doctor Creed. When used on an Infected, it causes an explosive chemical reaction. The Anti-Serum lasts only 15 minutes before the chemicals become inert.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I anxiously await the results of your field-testing the anti-serum!

Mission Objective(s)

Time to give Doctor Creed's anti-serum a try!

  • Defeat all Infected in warehouse

You have completed Doctor Creed's field test!

I take it the anti-serum is working effectively? Good!

I discovered something rather important while you were away...

Rescue Arachnos Informant

Briefing

While you were off testing the Infected anti-serum I was contacted by a member of Arachnos who says he has more information on the source of the contaminant in the water which produces the Infected. Unfortunately, the idiot got himself captured by Longbow before he was able to deliver me the information! Fortunately, I managed to find the warehouse where they took him for interrogation. Break into the warehouse and capture the Arachnos informant from Longbow!

Mission Acceptance

Bring me back the Arachnos informant intact! He's useless to me unconscious!

Unnecessary Solicitation

Bring me that informant! He may have the information I am seeking!

Mission Objective(s)

Looks like Longbow has secretly dug into this warehouse.

  • Rescue Arachnos informant
    • Rescue Informant!
      • Lead Informant out!

Arachnos Informant Info
The Arachnos Informant tells you that he's been doing guard duty at Fort Cerberus. In a high-security area of that Fort is a secret laboratory where a scientist known as Doctor Geist is rumored to be performing biochemical experiments with the resulting effluence being pumped into the Mercy Island cesspools.

Debriefing

WHAT? Doctor Geist was once a colleague of mine who stole my mutation theories for himself! Arachnos is letting one of my greatest rivals run medical experiments in their labs? And the waste from these experiments is what is causing the Infected? I must know what he is up to!

Interrogate Doctor Geist

Briefing

So my old rival Doctor Geist sold out to Arachnos and is doing medical experiments for them, eh? And the waste from those experiments is ending up in the cesspools of Mercy and causing the Infected to come about? I must know more about those experiments! Break into Fort Cerberus and get the information out of Doctor Geist!

Mission Acceptance

Make Doctor Geist pay for his treachery! Find what he knows so I may seize the knowledge for myself!

Unnecessary Solicitation

What are you waiting for? Find out what that Arachnos lickboot Doctor Geist knows!

Mission Objective(s)

Somewhere within this section of Fort Cerberus is the notorious Arachnos scientist known as Doctor Geist! Make him pay for his treachery!

  • Defeat Doctor Geist

Doctor Geist and his plans

Doctor Geist:

Mwuhahahahaha!
The fools! They said that I, the ingenious Dr. Geist, would never make anything of myself!
Now here I am, working for Lord Recluse, unlocking the secrets of these Arachnoids!
Soon, I will work my way up the Arachnos hierarchy and get the resources I need to create my ULTIMATE SECRET WEAPON!
Then, I shall rule the WORLD!
Mwuhahahahahaha!

Wolf Spider:

GEIST!
Doctor Geist dreams come to a halt

Doctor Geist:

Aaaaaah!

Wolf Spider:

Get back to work or we'll cut off more than your funding!

Doctor Geist:

Of course, s-sir! I'll get back to it, sir!

Wolf Spider:

I hate mad scientists.

You found something.

Icon clue generic.png
Doctor Geist's Research Data
Doctor Geist's research data contains all kinds of information on biochemical processes of Arachnoids, some sort of human-spider mutant hybrid. Non-living specimens of these creatures were shipped to Fort Cerebus for further study from a place called Grandville.

Debriefing

You defeated Doctor Geist? AND you discovered what he was up to? Excellent! Most excellent! With this information I will rule the WORLD! Muhahaha!

Missions

Stop Biopulse from joining Longbow

Briefing

I have discovered a rare occurrence! Amongst the dregs of the Infected an individual with actual super-powers has emerged! He has manifested the ability to project bio-generated electricty from his body and adopted the hero-name of Biopulse. This is the perfect opportunity to obtain a live specimen for experimentation! Muhahaha!

We must move quickly though; already Biopulse has set up a clandestine meeting with Longbow in the sewers beneath Mercy, hoping to gain support and champion the cause of the Infected. Stop Biopulse from joining Longbow!

Mission Acceptance

Once you have defeated that do-gooder wannabe, I'll have him shipped to my lab for dissection!

Unnecessary Solicitation

Have you defeated Biopulse yet? Well? What are you waiting for? Perhaps you WANT to see another hero running around the streets? Get moving!

Mission Objective(s)

According to Doctor Creed, Biopulse was last seen entering this part of the Mercy sewers.

  • Stop Biopulse from joining Longbow
    • Defeat Biopulse and witnesses

You defeated Biopulse!

Excellent! Now I can see what makes Biopulse tick and perhaps discover a reliable means of recreating Infected powers! Muhahaha!

Kidnap homeless people for medical experimentation

Briefing

I am working on deriving a serum from the blood of the Infected. However, I need a number of subjects to test the serum on! This is where you come in!

Huh? No, no, I don't mean to test it on you (although it's not a BAD idea). No, I need you to gather up some test subjects! You know, the dregs of humanity, people who won't be missed. I know of a warehouse where a bunch of those wretches live their pathetic lives; I have a truck waiting nearby which will take you there. Kidnap a couple of these homeless people and load them onto the truck. My driver will take them to my lab so I can commence experimentation!

Mission Acceptance

The warehouse is also used by the Hellions, so you can expect to run into a bunch of those uncouth punks in there as well. They'll likely be guarding the entrance to the warehouse.

Unnecessary Solicitation

What are you waiting for? I need fresh bodies for my experiments!

Mission Objective(s)

Find the Hellion's warehouse and kidnap some homeless for Dr. Creed's medical experiments!

  • Kidnap homeless from warehouse
    • 2 victims to kidnap
      • Lead 2 victims to truck

Debriefing

Excellent! Yes, these scum will do nicely. It's very important to make careful observations as the transformation from regular human to Infected occurs!

Steal medical supplies

Briefing

My experiments on the Infected are going well, but I am lacking certain rare and expensive medical supplies. Fortunately I have located a cargo shipment of said supplies on its way to Paragon City! Intercept the cargo shipment, defeat their guards, and steal the medical supplies!

Mission Acceptance

Many of the ships which travel past the Rogue Isles hire mercenaries to protect the cargo. Expect some resistance!
