Level 20-24

Have you ever read any of Jim Bell's articles in the paper? He's a great reporter who's been doing a lot of articles on the Tsoo and the Warriors. Jim has access to Training Enhancements.

Jim is outspoken and opinionated, but he is extremely well informed.

There's a wise old man named Dr. Cheng who knows just about everything there is to know about the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. He has access to Training Enhancements.

Dr. Cheng is very wise, Hero. Pay close attention to his words.

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.

I know a guy named Kevin Cordell who runs a small security consulting business. He's heard about you and would like to talk sometime about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Kevin used to be a hero, and he still has access to Training Enhancements.

Kevin is not easily impressed, but I think you will do just fine with him, Character.

I'd like you to meet Oswald Cuthbert. He's a probation officer and thus has a lot of contact with the sordid side of Paragon City. He often uses heroes like you to help him out with the Sky Raiders and the Council. Oswald can get you Training Enhancements.

Good choice, Character, and good hunting

Do you ever read Dennis Ewell's columns? He's quite a writer, and he told me he'd like your help taking out the Tsoo and the Warriors. Dennis has access to Training Enhancements.

Dennis isn't convinced that the heroes of Paragon City are much better than the villains, but he is coming around.

Wil Eziquerra is an excellent reporter who specialized in stories on the Sky Raiders and the Council. His sources usually keep him stocked up with Training Enhancements.

Wil is going to be a great resource for you, Character.

I have to admit that Georgia Fields doesn't have the best reputation. No one really knows how she gets her information, but she's an excellent source on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. She is usually able to get her hands on training enhancements.

If you are careful, Georgia can be of great assistance to you.

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'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.

My friend Justin Greene has asked to see you. He's a coordinator for his local community watch group. He used to be a hero, so he knows how to help you clean up groups like the Sky Raiders and the Council. Justin has access to Training Enhancements.

I think Justin will like you a great deal, Character.

If you can gain his confidence, Oliver Haak is a rich source of information on the occult. Don't be put off by his demeanor, Character, I know that you will impress him. He can really help you out against the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. Oliver has access to Training Enhancements.

Your actions will speak for you with Oliver.

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 have no doubt you will enjoy working with Professor Keller

Although he is a bit eccentric, Joseph Keller has a great deal of knowledge. He can greatly aid anyone who wishes to go up against the Banished Pantheon or the Circle of Thorns. Professor Keller has access to Training Enhancements.

If you ever have a computer problem or want a lead on some computer related crime, you should talk to Justine Kelly. She's a whiz at technical stuff and a bit of an online hero in her own right. Lately she has been focusing her attention on the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Justine has access to Training Enhancements.

Justine is a very skilled young lady.

The INS has a woman named Amanda Loomis who works well with heroes. She is trying to keep the Tsoo situation from turning any uglier than it already has, and she also has a deep interest in the Warriors. Amanda should be able to get you Training Enhancements.

Amanda likes to use metaphors, but she understands the realities of Paragon City all too well.

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.

Melanie Peebles has the power to see things through her dreams. Her most recent dreams have been about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Melanie has access to Training Enhancements.

Do not dismiss Melanie's guidance lightly.

I know a rather interesting fellow named Hinckley Rasmussen. He works as a researcher for the Midnight Squad and takes an interest in helping heroes like you fight the Tsoo and the Warriors. Hinckley has access to Training Enhancements.

Cain Royce is strongly committed to his crusade against the Banished Pantheon and the Circle of Thorns. You would do well to have him as an ally. Cain can get you Training Enhancements.

Paragon City's evil-doers will soon feel the weight of this choice.

I think you should talk to John Strobel from the Citizen Defense Coalition. It's a group of ex-military and law enforcement officers that helps heroes like you from time to time. Right now their attention is focused on the Sky Raiders and the Council. John has a few sources that can get him Training Enhancements.

John is very patriotic and somewhat idealistic, but he's got a keen eye for trouble.

I've been asked to keep this very quiet, but someone from the CIA wants to meet you. Her name is Kirsten Woods and she knows quite a bit about the Sky Raiders. She also thinks there may be more to the Lost than meets the eye. As a CIA operative, Agent Woods has access to Training Enhancements.

Keep a low profile when you are working with Kirsten.

Level 25-29

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.

There's a scientist named Marvin Weintraub who's quite the expert on advanced technologies, the Freakshow, and the Family. He also has training enhancements.

Marvin has done as much to help the heroes of Paragon City as anyone in the world.

Information

Civil Rights Activist

Civil rights can be a touchy subject for super-powered heroes. Equal opportunity is a cause they can all get behind, but when it comes to subjects like wrongful imprisonment and unfair prosecution, heroes tend to get nervous. It's Vic Garland's job to make them nervous. Vic has devoted his life to protecting the civil rights of every man, woman, and child in America. Sometimes that means suing a hero for wrongfully beating the snot out of a suspected criminal. But much more often it means helping a hero catch some criminal who's flagrantly violating the rights of ordinary citizens. Recently, Vic has developed another, more personal crusade. More and more villains have taken to hiding their hateful ideology and criminal activities behind a veneer of protest for civil rights. No group is guiltier of this than the Freakshow. Vic has a heated vendetta against such villains and, with the support of many heroes behind him, he's out to expose their nefarious activities.

Retrieve the stolen weapons from the Freakshow

Briefing

There's been a great deal of chaos on the streets of the city, and a good deal of it has been started by a gang called the Freakshow. This highly factionalized group of nihilistic anarchists has become dangerous, fueled by a drug called Excelsior and their unwavering hatred of 'the system.' Their tenacity and wild abandon make them dangerous opponents. I just got a tip that the Freakshow have taken raided the Lockhart Aerotech weapons lab and made off with a mighty arsenal. Will you retrieve the stolen weapons from the Freakshow?

Mission Acceptance

The Freakshow aren't just thugs with guns. They're well armed, well equipped, and crazy. With all of the Excelsior in their systems, many Freaks can barely feel pain. What's more, lots of them have undergone radical cybernetic surgery to turn themselves into walking death machines. So this isn't going to be easy.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You need to get those stolen weapons back from the Freaks. We can't have them running around with Lockhart's weapons technology.

The Freakshow hideout

Mission Objective(s)

Scientific notes litter the floor, each one detailing advances that are now part of the Freakshow's arsenal.

  • Defeat Freak leader, his crew
    • 6 weapons caches remaining

You have secured the weapons and defeated the Freakshow.

Enemies

Advanced weapons
These weapons are all highly advanced, some of them bordering on the exotic. You can only imagine how much havoc the Freakshow could have wrought with them.

Badge

The Pwnz badge is awarded upon mission completion.

File:Badge stature 05.png Pwnz

You have arrested one of the higher ranking members of the Freakshow.

Debriefing

You did everyone a big favor, Character. The Freakshow get most of their technology through theft, and I'm sure you'll agree they don't need to get any more dangerous. Here, you should take some of the weapons you confiscated. I'm sure you'll make better us of them than the Freaks would.

Temporary Power

After the mission debriefing, the hero will earn the Confiscated Beanbag temporary power.

Temporary ConfiscatedBeanbag.png Confiscated Beanbag Auto: Ranged, Minor Damage (Smashing), Foe Disorient
You confiscated this weapon from a Freakshow base. It fires a single, non-lethal beanbag that can seriously disorient a target. You have 50 beanbags.

A Hand of Iron (20-24)

Souvenir

Iron Hand's Badge

Detective Jackson gave you Iron Hand's badge after you apprehended the disloyal agent. It's a constant reminder that life in Paragon City can be treacherous, even to hardened professionals.

A Hand of Iron

Your routine missions against the Freakshow were going well. Perhaps too well. Your contact informed you that your constant thwarting of Freakshow schemes had put an undercover cop in danger! The Freaks suspected they had a mole.

You hit the streets, defeating Freak after Freak in an attempt to divert suspicion from the mole. If you could only make your actions seem random, not directed, perhaps the Freaks would let their suspicions slide. In one battle, you recovered a list of names from a defeated Freak. You took the list to Det. Rondel Jackson, who was dismayed to learn that his officer's name was among those listed. It seemed the Freaks' suspicions might be on the money.

Det. Jackson asked you to rescue his agent, Iron Hand. After an intense battle with the Freaks, you learned that Iron Hand had indeed become one of them. His undercover persona had become his life.

Prevent Freakshow from making off with the electronics

Briefing

The Freakshow have broken into a warehouse full of electronic parts, which they no doubt plan to use for their cybernetic enhancements. If you get over there right now, you may be just in time to prevent the Freakshow from making off with the electronics.

Mission Acceptance

Our informants are the only thing keeping us in step with the Freakshow.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I need you to stop the Freakshow from getting their hands on those electronics.

Mission Objective(s)

Smashed bottles and bad techno music betray the presence of the Freakshow.

  • Bust electronics thief, his crew

You have defeated the Freakshow.

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow.png Freakshow

Debriefing

With my information and your skill, we will certainly shut the Freakshow down.

Patrol the area and prevent the Freakshow assaults

Briefing

The Freakshow have increased their activity in one of my patrol zones. It seems they're targeting specific business folk for assault. I need you to patrol the area and prevent the Freakshow assaults.

Mission Acceptance

This kind of activity hurts the economy of Paragon City, Character.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I need you on that patrol route, hero.

Mission Objective(s)

Note: This mission requires you to visit 5 locations scattered around Talos Island and click on the police call box there.

Debriefing

Thanks for stopping those Freakshow assaults, Character. If we let the Freaks intimidate Paragon City's business men, they may well achieve the anarchy they crave.

Hey, Character, I got a message from a friend of mine, Detective Rondel Jackson. Your recent Freakshow encounters have put one of his undercover agents in jeopardy. It seems the Freaks are beginning to suspect they have a mole, simply because you often happen to be at the right place at the right time.

Cull the numbers of the Freakshow

Briefing

We need to divert suspicion from that undercover agent who infiltrated the Freakshow. I want you to go cull the numbers of the Freakshow. If you start taking on Freaks at random, they may begin to realize that you don't have inside information about their activities.

Mission Acceptance

If this doesn't work, Det. Jackson may have a hard time pulling his man out of their.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I need you to take out more Freakshow minions. They're still suspicious of our agent.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Divert suspicion from mole
    • Defeat 20 Freakshow

You found a list of names on one of the Freakshow you defeated.

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow.png Freakshow

Icon clue generic.png
List of names
You recovered this list of names from the body of one of the Freakshow members you defeated.

Debriefing

One of the Freaks was carrying this list? Hmm. I don't recognize any of the names, but I'll ask Det. Jackson. Maybe the list has something to do with that undercover agent he placed among the Freakshow.

Take the list to Det. Rondel Jackson

Briefing

This list of names you found on the Freakshow may mean something to Det. Rondel Jackson. Would you take the list to Jackson? I need to hear his take on it.

Mission Acceptance

Hopefully, Jackson will be able to make some sense of those names.

Unnecessary Solicitation

We need another opinion on that list of names.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Deliver list to Det. Jackson

Debriefing

Hmm, it looks like the Freaks put together a list of possible moles in their operation. Wait a minute! This guy, that's our undercover cop! His code name is Iron Hand. Thanks, Character, I will try to pull him out of their right away.


Debriefing

So, the Freaks might be wise to that undercover agent? That doesn't sound good for this Iron Hand fellow. I'll see if there's anything else you can do to help.

Go talk to Det. Jackson

Briefing

You should go talk to Det. Jackson. He's concerned about Iron Hand, that undercover agent he placed with the Freakshow. It sounds like the agent's in danger, and Det. Jackson could really use your help.

Mission Acceptance

Thanks, Character. Please do anything Jackson asks of you.

Talk to Det. Jackson

Unnecessary Solicitation

Have you talked to Det. Jackson yet? I told him to expect you!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Talk to Det. Jackson

Briefing

Thanks for meeting with me. I haven't heard from Iron Hand all day, and he's not responding to his pager. His last known location was a Freakshow hideout. Please get over there and see if you can find any sign of him. If you learn anything, report back to me.


Defeat base leader and his crew

Unnecessary Solicitation

Have you located Iron Hand yet? Check out that hideout.

Mission Objective(s)

These sewers have been blocked off by piles of debris. It looks like the Freaks don't want to be found.

  • Defeat base leader and his crew

After questioning the Freakshow gangers, you learn that Iron Hand has left the base. He's with a group of Freaks who are hell-bent on some secret objective.

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow.png Freakshow

Notable NPCs

Take info to Det. Jackson

Unnecessary Solicitation

You should talk with Det. Rondel Jackson.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Take info to Det. Jackson

Briefing

Iron Hand's with that group? Oh, man. Word on the street is that they're going to assault a Council base. I need you to head over there and get Iron Hand to safety.


Rescue Iron Hand

Unnecessary Solicitation

You need to locate Iron Hand! He could be in serious trouble!

Mission Objective(s)

The sounds of battle ring out from the base. In this melee, it won't be easy to get Iron Hand out unscathed.

  • Rescue Iron Hand

You have defeated the Freakshow and apprehended Iron Hand.

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow.png Freakshow

Notable NPCs

Debriefing

Det. Jackson wanted me to pass this on to you. He said that Iron Hand was deep undercover for a while, but they never thought they'd lose him like that. It happens every once in a while, most frequently with the Freakshow. Their hedonistic lifestyle makes it easy for them to ferret out agents, and even easier for the agents to succumb to their self-indulgent ways. Jackson wanted to extend his thanks to you for your help, and your discretion.

Here, take Iron Hand's police badge. He won't be needing it, now that he's joined the Freakshow. And you should have a reminder of the price we all pay to make this city safe.

Missions

Investigate the warehouse and destroy any Superadine you find

Briefing

We have an opportunity to strike a powerful blow against the Family, but you'll have to act quickly. We have traced a significant portion of their Superadine operation through a warehouse in Independence Port. I need you to investigate that warehouse and destroy any Superadine you find. We think they may be aware of our surveillance. You only have 75 minutes to investigate the warehouse.

Mission Acceptance

This could be big, Character. We've been trying for years to get evidence on the Family's drug dealing.

Unnecessary Solicitation

We need to know if the Family is really moving Superadine out of that warehouse. If we miss this opportunity, we will regret it.

Mission Objective(s)

An acrid chemical smell pervades this area.

  • Investigate Family warehouse (Timed, 75 minutes)
    • 4 Drugs, 2 Labs, 5 Chemicals, Evidence

You have destroyed the Family's Superadine lab.

Enemies

Badge villain family.png The Family

You found records of the Family's connection to this warehouse.

Icon clue generic.png
Family files
These files prove conclusively that the Superadine lab you destroyed was owned and operated by ranking Family members. This evidence, along with your testimony, should be enough to put these evildoers in jail.

Debriefing

That was a Herculean effort, Character. Shutting down that warehouse will put a huge dent in the Family's Superadine operation.
