History: The Eldest of two Daughters of a Powerful Congressman, Nicole Washington joined up as a army nurse in 1941 at the age of 31 but after the death of her first husband and a bomb destroyed the hospital she was in, she decided to get into the action and sign up for the US Army's Science division's Super soldier experiments.
Of course, she had to prove herself that she was capable, due to the stigma on women being weak at the time in 1940. The experiments were hard on her, the processes as she became a metahuman usually drove any normal man to insanity but nobody expected Nicole Washington to survive and with her wits intact. The Former Army nurse was now a Amazonian Metahuman with Superhuman physiology, bulletproof durability, A powerful healing factor and a teleportation ability.
Eventually the war was won and the war heroes were given their respected medals but unlike some heroes that were either in cryo sleep or retired, Nicole didn't feel like locking herself away in a cold sleep for God knows how long until she was needed again when there was so much she could do to help. As such she rejected the Army's offer and continued her Hero career right into the 60s, 70s, 80s and the 90s, unafraid in any face of adversity.
Despite working as a registered hero, she maintained a steady job as a mechanic over the years and a good family life with her sister Susan, who grew up to be a successful doctor and had 4 children, one of Susan's children was even saved from a drunk and violent husband by Nicole herself.
The second highlight of her life was the battle of Detroit in 1992, Valor fought, Unafraid of Destroyer's assault but the battle almost cost her life.
For 23 years, she was in a coma, unaware of the changing world around her. Now she's woken up in 2015, a century of smartphones, selfies and more to help a city she previously couldn't protect.
Abilities: Superhuman Strength, Endurance, Metabolism, Regeneration, Teleportation, Bulletproof durability, Expert Army CQC Combatant, Medical and Mechanical training.
The Living Cave
On Saturday the 12th of September, A small team complied of members of On Call and volunteers from the Civilian Protection Network investigated into an case involving a super team that went missing about a few days prior.
The team; consisting of SoulStar, Nano Point, Gyo'lya, Aegis (formerly Aether), and Dusk; arrived at the former team's last known location over in the far northern parts of Alaska. It was there that they had come to discover an unknown altercation had occurred. Many shards of crystals found amongst the wreckage that indicated that a great struggle of sorts had taken place. All of the clues lead them directly to a nearby cave which they decided to continue their search. More evidence of a bloody struggle were all over the crystallized interior of the cave itself.
It was then that the team found a couple of frozen bodies of deceased superhumans buried under what appeared to be a solidified snow cave in. In the grip of one of the corpses there was a recording of sorts that revealed the team that had arrived here were looking into a possibility of some unknown life form located there before they were seemingly attacked by a series of what appeared to be sentient metamorphing crystals. After the team removed the heavy debris, their research further inside had made them come to the realization that the cave itself was very multi-layered within its interiors as it was covered by nothing but a crystallized terrain.
Deeper into their search let the team find four crystallized pods of sorts with people seemingly within. Two of the people within the pods were still indicating signs of life as they were weakly trying to break free from their imprisonment. When the team attempted to free them, the other remaining people inside the pods made their presence known along with their disturbing appearance of fully integrated crystalline-like flesh. After a brief failure in communication with these people, the team was forced to go into combat with them. Aegis was left with the task of freeing the remaining people who seemed to be stuck, now identified as teenaged twins Terry and Andy Terrigen.
The battle ended up being short once Gyo'lya's weapon managed to free one of the controlled crystallized people, now known as Gabe, from his imprisonment. Soon enough the second crystallized person, now identified as Madeline, had a similar encounter with Nano Point's nanite cloud. The two victims were now set free from their mind control, but now with a new problem; They could not at all will themselves to leave the cave. It was at this point that the two had explained to the team that they were originally sent to this location to look into the possibility of a new alien life form. That life form turned out to be the cave itself. It was nothing more then a baby who was scared of everything around it and as a result ended up both killing several of their own team members whilst symbiotically joining the rest of them so it wouldn't be alone.
Facing a pretty difficult moral dilemma on what exactly should be done for them, the team decided the only course of action that wouldn't cause any harm to either side was for Gabe and Madeline to stay there with 'Cave' and act as its guardians until PRIMUS correspondence can figure out a way to free from them their current condition. The twins are the only real survivors of this ordeal.
This situation will be looked into at a later time.
On Tuesday the 16th of September, an assignment indicating a series of missing persons reports around the Colorado desert was looked into after they were all linked being close to an compound run by a cult. It's leader an ex Vice Captain of VIPER: Charm.
The team; consisting of SoulStar,Blazewing, and Shaun Mathers; arrived late at night at the foot of the hill of said compound. Shaun being the first to discover that the hill was actually covering a series of very intricate machinery and high levels of heat coming from the compound itself. BlazeWing discovering articles of torn clothing, and SoulStar finding an partially working phone that had very strong evidence suggesting that people were being abducted. The heroes didn't wait any longer as they decided to just storm the compound and get their answers by force.
Unfortunately what the men did find was their answers when they had found the cultist passing along human body parts amongst each other as if they were nothing more than waste. The heroes quickly dispatched the cultist and interrogated them on what was going down. The cultist themselves seemed deeply brainwashed in Charm's vision of "fixing" people. Didn't take long for the cultist to just point the team towards the central hub of the compound where they eventually were led to a very disturbing incubation section.
The Incubation room consisted of egg-like husks that contained all of the previous missing victims who had been gone for some weeks, now all of them genetically altered and grafted brand new parts to their bodies against their own will. Once discovering this workshop of horrors, the team did the only logical thing they could do: evacuate all victims, and escort the cultist out of the compound before detonating and destroying the structure and all of its twisted designs within.
Currently PRIMUS has picked up both all victims and even their deluded captors. At the state of the missing persons and their newly designed bodies, it seems the transitions maybe permanent but they are currenly trying to find a way to reverse the deed that has been done.
An APB will be put out for Charm.
Charles Barlowe, callsign Chocolate Bar, has revealed to fellow members of Project:On Call that the man responsible for those horrific experiments is also his own flesh and blood. His father Henry Barlowe.
A team was extracted out to Maryland far out in the country side to investigate Barlowe's last known location. Originally there was a compound there but it seemed to have been completely removed. The team consisting of Chocolate Bar, Death Raven, Nano Point, and Blaze Wing searched the premises in hopes of finding answers and clues. After looking around they've discovered that under the dirt and grass was a hidden away hatch which ultimately led into a massive underground bunker of sorts. Inside of said bunker were lined up dump trucks full of dismantled memorbelia of the Barlowe's old compound.
Deeper within the central hub area of the bunker was a room full of those egg shaped incubators along with members of the Barlowe clan trapped inside hooked up to respirators. The overseer of the incubators was none other than a woman by the name of Kimiko Barlowe; Charles Barlowe's half sister. Both Charles and the team attempted to talk her down from doing what she was doing, yet Kimiko(or Kim-Kim) informed them that she was instructed by their father to watch over the facility and to wait for further instructions. It was then that she initiated an attack displaying her elastic epidermal morphing capabilities upon the team.
After having an intense battle in very close corner spaces, the group managed to overcome her attack and neutralized her. However Death Raven's final attack on her went too far as it left Kimiko with severe burns and pain. The remaining members of the Barlowe were eventually freed and later evacuated by PRIMUS personnel.
Death Raven has since admitted to being too harsh in his actions and has been warned and reprimanded. Kimiko Barlowe is now in intensive care where her half brother ,Charles Barlowe, watches over her. The remaining Barlowe clan has been put in quarantined with the rest of the previous experimented victims. PRIMUS experts are currently monitoring their condition.
A request sent out a couple of weeks back about a series of earthquakes followed by bizarre sightings of ghosts roaming about a small town just outside of Odessa,Texas.
On October 9th, the town,now identified as Tumbling, finally gotten their request answered after the reports were not stopping. A small team of On Call responders consisting of Dr. Bugly, Nano Point, White Glint, and MoonLighter were deployed. Their findings revealed that the entire town was near complete devestation. The towspeople were all refusing aid and assistance from those who did not belong to their town. Many were making temporary vacancies at local shops or the police station.
After some brief questioning with the local sheriff, the team had gotten once ore a confirmation of similar earlier reports of the signs of ghastly apparitions appearing just right after another deadly previous quake. Upon the team' investigation they had eventually encountered these so called spirits in the form of some sort of cowboy posse. It even seemed like these spirits showed signs of intelligence when they had made contact with the team, although causing severe migraines and even nose bleedings to any and all who was within radius of them.
While attempts of peace were used, the apparitions were extremely hostile and ordered the On Callers to vacate the premises. Claiming to have authority over the townsfolks protection. An eventual fight broke out as the team valiantly held off these ghastly horseback riders. Dr. Bugly used his pocket dimensional tech to summon a mini orbital strike centered just at the
core of the opposing faction. This did thin out their numbers, but also accidentally caught Moonlighter partially within its radius, causing him to lose a leg.
After a few minutes of fighting off the horde of buckaroo specters, an analysis from Nate Hiyabashi's readings indicated that the spirits were infact just highly concentrated psychic constructs. The true culprit had to have been using very advanced display of psionics. Dr. Bugly used his own summoned drones to seek out this source of the problem, and managed to pick up something due south heading deeper into the town located close by a local sewage plant. The team withdrew from the fight, when they did the constructs had simply vanished entirely from battle as well.
It was within the plant that the group had found the true culprit. And also another victim, now identified as Hector Rodriguez,who's body was far too weak to move from his current position due to the signs of his own physical mutation that had developed over time. It seems he had gotten stuck right at the sewage waste area after the first time his powers had activated around the same report of those earthquakes that took place in Tumbling. His forehead was about as wide and thick as an watermelon. Hector's psionics were infact powerful enough to not only caused severe seismic quakes, but could create psionic constructs which led into the reports about 'ghosts' which has now been debunked. Rodriguez created the cowboys as his way of redemption to protect the townsfolks, but it seems he didn't take into account of scaring them due to their fear of his very powerful constructs to begin with. Hector was contemplating suicide due to that his powers were about to erupt out of control once more, but with aid of Dr. Bugly's sedative, this did not come to pass and thus finally Hector was safely taken away.
ASAP personnel are currently ensuring that Rodriguez will not break out of his current dormant state and will very soon hand over their findings and Hector himself over to PRIMUS. The people of Tumbling have already been evacuated and relocated for their own safety until everything is cleared up and rebuilt.
After answering a request from Canada about several reports of missing or presumably dead animals followed by appearances of very strange subterranean creatures roaming about the mountainous ranges of Winnipeg, a small team of On Call members were sent in on the eve of Halloween. The team consisting of SoulStar, Moonlighter, Major Matrix, BlazeWing, and Aegis. Evidence of many scattered animal remains and varies missing parts discovered around the area have come to high speculation that something was indeed afoot. Not to mention various sounds of what sounded like primates screeching.
After landing at the entrance of the last known whereabouts of the creatures in an attempt to investigate into the matter of what exactly was going down, the team first briefly explored the cave before shortly running into a pack of wolves who seemed to be have been genetically altered. Having the appearance of hybrids of some sort with organic armor plating and skinned furs. The team was forced to use more lethal tactics after quickly discovering not only were these creatures out for blood, but have indeed attempted to outright hunt and kill the party assembled.
After dispatching and making the remainder of that pack retreat from them, the group had made note of the strange grafting and genetic alteration of the poor far beyond of help animals. The group ventured forward to discover the source of the earlier monkey like screechings once they had arrived at what appeared to be a den, and in wait was a primate-like hybrid sort of creature with similar organic looking armored plating. The creature immediately identified itself under a classified enemy type long thought to be nothing more than forgotten after the apparent destruction of the parallel Earth dubbed "Paragon": The creature classified itself as nothing more than " Rik-ti".
Also within its unveiling it let the team see what those cave walls were truly hiding behind them as it seems to have in reality a factory of sorts that was altering various woodland creatures into 'Rik-ti' types as well. All of them instantaneously growing more and more violent and hostile towards the group. With the team in majority agreement of not allowing these abominations to be able to see the light of day, the team valiantly held off until they could have enough prep time to arm the cave with explosives and eventually evac back to the entrance at the possible last second.
The team managed to keep these mutated hybrids within their cave prison for the time being it seems and UNTIL forces have been notified to keep an eye out on the site til something can be permanently done about this gruesome discovery. More studies and questions about the Rik-ti from those who have been in contact with them from the Paragon Earth must be looked into for future study.
Report on escort operation that took place on November 14th in Tokyo, Japan.
A small team of On Callers; Maj. Matrix, Moonlighter, and Dr. Bugly,were dispatched to answer an escorting request from the Sakagawa Improvements Med (SIM) on board a bullet train. The request from the company was to help protect both the passengers and the cargo being carried onboard. It seems that the company was being targetted by a former test subject of theirs turned rogue going by the moniker Osteo (See dossier here)
Once they had made their arrival the team met up with SIM liaison rep Tom Misaki. Mr. Misaki-san revealed to the group what was really inside of the large series of reinforced containers. Nearly over thousands of test tube vials that hold a specialized healing bond agent that is based off of studies of superhumans with advanced regeneration abilities. They were very close on the breakthrough of a brand new type of serum that could potentially just about help any organic tissue drastically heal from even the most serious of cuts or injuries. However the testing wasn't ready for primetime yet, hence why all of their current researchers and scientists were making the trip from Tokyo to Kyoto so they could be at their sister company over there in order to further finish and carefully ensure it was safe.
After the team had been debriefed and settle down into their own seats, Dr. Bugly set up a quick surveillance drones to watch out for any presence of Osteo himself as it was highly likely he would be attacking the train, given his private history with SIM. As predicted it didn't take too long after the bullet train had set off on its course before Osteo made his presence known by attacking the mid car sections, effectively knocking out several passengers including Dr. Bugly himself in one swift strike. After heavily damaging the car, Osteo made his way inside of the speedy locomotion himself by utilizing his strength thanks to the exoskeleton bone structure of his. After ensuring that the cargo and many of the passengers were safe, both Maj. Matrix and Moonlighter were left to defend and fight off the bone armored assailant. Although both of them fought as valiantly as they could, his power and high defense alone was proving to be very overwhelming for the two.
In a last ditch effort to save everybody on the train, Tom Misaki jumped into the middle of their violent struggle offering up one of the containment unit cargoes in exchange for him to just let them be. Osteo completely abandoned the fight altogether and agreed not to kill anybody as this was the real prize he wanted all along. After leaving the train and the group to lick their wounds paramedics were called once the locomotion had came to a complete stop about half an hour later. Multiple bruises, cuts, and fractures for all team members.
It is not truly known the reason for why Osteo wanted the cargo. Some theorize he was going to use the serum to heal himself. Others speculate he might've been hired out to retrieve the cargo from an outside source.
On December 14th a small team of metahumans (SoulStar,Brimstone, Jaguar, and Nano Point) gathered up together at a undisclosed location in the underground ruins of old Detroit nearby the old DIA center in midtown. Intel from ASAP had gathered that an exchange of valuable hot items were being auctioned away to various criminal organizations and known super villains alike. All of them instructed to not break cover unless they absolutely had to or were forced.
The following are the metas and their faux criminal personas:
SoulStar- "Red Moon"
Brimstone- "Red Hand Hank"
Jaguar- "Black Racer"
Each of them were given visas attached to dummy bank accounts in order to use as their way to get in. Along with small explosives to destroy the items in question in case they were unable to win them with "Black Racer" being assigned to sneak them on.
Once they had arrived at the Exchange it was revealed that the international criminal Toy was the head auctioneer. Notable auctionees in question were Deviant, Redwing, and Vicar. The muscle for the event was another familiar bruiser; Osteo. Once the event had gotten started the bids were fast and flying all over for each and every singular item.
The following were the items themselves in question: a full canister of regenerative serum vials, mystical dark cloak, very rare alien organic technology, and an powerful superhuman trapped in a comatose state by the name of Hammerfell. Each and every one of these items were just about as dangerous as the next. Luckily the team in disguise won all items sans for Hammerfell. For that one they had to cause a distraction by using all of their explosives to cause a panic and ruckus amongst the crowd goers. Letting Red Moon (SoulStar) to steal it away from Deviant who had won Hammerfell originally.
This opportunity spilled out into the streets as "Red Moon" carried the pod containing the superhuman out of the center and racing to the emergency extraction point before they could get caught. Osteo gave chase, forcing Jaguar to drop his Black racer guise and pose as himself to fight off the behemoth. Good thing for the group that Jaguar's super speed was key to their escape as he held him back just long enough for the team to make their grand escape and teleport back to UNTIL HQ. Red Hand Hank (Brimstone) dropped off his winnings at a specific location for UNTIL personnel to pick up later.
Mission was complete success.
Winners Use Drugs
A couple months prior to this incident, a container holding a vast number of vials containing an experimental regenerative serum was stolen from a moving bullet train in Japan by the metahuman known as Osteo. That same container was later revealed to have been planned to be secretly auctioned away as well but it was intercepted before it even had a chance by members of On Call and a couple of volunteers. However it seems that some of those vials in the container were slipped out and then later experimented on and mutated to become a completely different variant of the serum altogether.
The serum in its new form was being shipped and produced out by drug peddlers in the town known as Akron,Ohio. This version of the serum would cause specifically non-metas to become temporarily metahuman through a series of injections and each new injection would only further strengthen the abnormal traits. If the subject in question has too many injections they will suffer from slow tearing of their genetic makeup followed by a physical mutation which leads into mental insanity followed by fatality. At first only a very small number of people had their hands on the dangerous serum, but then in a matter of a few short weeks those numbers had nearly tripled by comparison.
Soon the drug transformed into an deadly pathogen of spores that began to spread out into the atmosphere of Akron itself. Transforming this problem into a full blown epidemic. The more aggressive form of this caused the same symptoms as before but now whenever a non-meta breathes it in it would only heighten and increase their physical mutations. PRIMUS troops had already arrived early at the scene and barricaded the entire town to prevent any further spread of the virus until they can get some metahuman backup. They called up Project On Call.
The Sakagawa Improvements Med (SIM), also known as the same company who made the original regenerative serum version of this drug, immediately volunteered their services out by whipping out a sustainable large batch of an antidote that would be able to fight off this evolving virus before it can cause more damage. But they still needed time to complete their quota. Hence why the members of On Call were sent out to the town of Akron and maintain some sort of control over the place.
SoulStar,Saint,Obscurity, and Mind Shark arrived there via UNTIL shuttle and were instantly met by metahuman opposition. After various run ins with looters and various other metahuman types who were under madness from the virus itself, they finally managed to buy SIM enough time to deploy large containers of the antidote across the town. The team valiantly hurried to the designated spots and managed just in time to unleash the cure within to shoot out into the atmosphere and ultimately save the town from further decay and depower them.
As a final sting to everyone, it seems that spores that still remained in the air actually managed to spell out the words across the skies 'Winners Use Drugs'. As we speak Osteo's location is now being seek out and will be later posted to be captured and taken in for questioning once his location is found.
Sentry Rogue: Awakening
Act I: Awakening
January 4th, 2015. A Highly anticipated day for the men and women of Fields Technologies and the team of Project: Sentry. That day they were unveiling what was supposed to be the next great revolution in security and peace keeping technology. Soldiers would be safe from battle, streets would be cleaned. Supercrime would be a thing of the past.
Unfortunately this was not meant to be. That fateful Sunday, the moment the machine was activated for demonstration, the machine critically wounded Dr. James Fields, the head of it all and the machines creator, who is also known for being the power armor hero Nevermore. The press conference went to hell from there. The video feed was promptly cut the moment the attack began.
Soon enough the altercation spilled out onto the streets, prompting several members of On Call to respond to an emergency call out. When the response team arrived, they found the police power armors and tanks were turned on civilians. As the heroes proceeded to engage they would discover there was still people inside the machines, stuck inside them. The heroes managed to disable the machines, keeping the officers inside safe, but then a far more menacing threat appeared. The machine named Sentron emerged from a gaping hole in the building. The Golden Retriever stepped up to challenge the villainy of the rogue machine, and seemed to get several good blow in on it, but it then was evident that the machine had some manner of restorative and reinforcement technology. Golden took a large Blast to his body, which appeared to do nothing to him.
On Golden's following charge though, Sentron unleashed another blast from his palm, that had the effect of Splitting Retriever at his waist. With the wielder of the Gold Member incapacitated, Sentron left the remaining onlookers with a solemn warning, Enjoy your time with your family and loved ones. Sentron would return, and with that return, the promise to change the World.
Since then most information about this has been very hush hush with Project Sentry claiming that they are conducting their own internal investigation. This, coupled with Project: Sentry's reluctance to share any information with any form of authorities or law enforcement aroused suspicion in Jacob Wheatly. After conversing with Dr. Fields, Jake standing firm to not get back into the hero work he had been out of for a few months now, consulted a friend, Red Spider, who enlisted the aid of fellow Adventurers Lady Justice, Dreamweaver, and Juggernette.
They infiltrated the scene of the original incident to see if there was anything that would be cause for suspicion or evidence. The largest piece of evidence that was uncovered was an unidentified entry into the lab about two hours after what was supposed to be its final diagnostics and performance test.
Before they could get any more information they were interrupted by a surprise visit of Sentron. It gave them a somewhat similar warning that was left after the defeat of Golden Retriever. It the corrupted one of Nevermore's old power armors from "The Nest"to attack the heroes. Their combined efforts brought victory against the armor, but the whole lab was destroyed and levels due to a self destruct feature in the suit, eliminating any evidence that wasn't extracted in that location.
A bone to pick
After the incident of the near tragedy of Akron,Ohio, the hunt was on for the supervillain known as Osteo (Akito Root).The criminal's location was finally homed in dead center of the Indian Ocean in a small area that is known to be a graveyard of sorts for abandoned and rusted out ship tankers.
The available team were Natasha Roy,Aegis, Knightshadow, and honorary member Anarchangel. The majority arrived using the Centre's own UNTIL aircraft shuttle. Long range communication as well as video was being severely affected by the small typhoon storm that was taking place upon the team's arrival. The craft was very soon put under attack by a show of Osteo's own might when he tossed half an tanker straight into air heading right for their shuttle.
The aircraft was struck but the damage wasn't too bad when it stabilized over the ocean waters, however things only grew worse when Osteo himself finally appeared donning skeletal wing span to strike the aircraft and finally putting it out of commission. The ladies managed to get the small pilot crew out of the shuttle and into inflatable rafts before continuing on with their airborne battle with the bone armored villain. The battle was indeed fierce as each member were doing their best to try and keep him distracted and slowly confuse and tire him down.
After several good strikes from their strafing and firing tactics, the team eventually managed to incapacitate the criminal into unconsciousness. After using some of Anarchangel's Vril energy to transport all of them back to UNTIL HQ, the team used the UNTIL personnel to help the wounded and restrain Akito Root before he could regain his consciousness again.
Now all that is left is to wait for his full recovery and start interrogation.
Everybody gets a taste
After a small team of On Callers agreed to meet with Chuckie'Chocolate Bar'Barlowe in the small town of Athens,Ohio at a local bar&grill, the group were briefed on the situation going on there. How his father, Henry'Charm' Barlowe, has essentially used his own powers to overwhelm most of the minds within the town and manipulating their own religious faith to secretly run his cult by posing as an honest pastor.
The team;White Glint,Nano Point, and Aegis; were informed that the plan was for them to head towards the church where he is conducting his latest cult gathering. Chuck also informed him that he had a "silent partner" on the side as well to aid them in taking down his father's group tonight for good. Unfortunately what the team did not discover later was that partner was none other than Jasmine Tyler aka ShadowFang of VIPER.
Once the team arrived at the local church, their plan of distracting Charm and his flock went off like a hitch. May of his followers have been grafted with artificial metahuman attirbrutes and abilities to be more than enough opposition for the group. But in the end they managed to prevail over their assailants with the remainder of the followers fleeing the scene. During this commotion, Charm used the opportunity of the wide scale attack to flee to the roof using a hidden away elevator shaft. It seems he had a pod of sorts that contained a similar spore -like virus that almost killed the people of Akron last month. After one hell of a struggle just to even get near him due to his atmospheric manipulation abilities, Chocolate Bar managed to get to his father and shockingly went straight in for a kill. White Glint attempted to valiantly prevent this murder, but unfortunately attacked from behind by Jasmine Tyler and then promptly beaten down by Chocolate Bar himself. And to ensure that Charm wouldn't get up from his fatal wound to the chest, Miss Tyler severed his head clean off his body. Finishing the execution right there. Due to the still toxic air and the shammbling of the church's roof, plus Chocolate's suit's stealth, both suspects were able to escape any sort of capture before the team had time to react to it all.
Chuck'Chocolate Bar' is now considered as a criminal for treason and flat out murder. The pod that Charm had in his hold has been confiscated by UNTIL for further studies.
Why ya gotta Playa H-8?
On April 29th, the On Call technicians that aid in running the training simulation room located within the lower floors, had made some discovery of unusual fluxations occurring from the hard light programming system that is normally used for training the numerous members and superhumans of the Project On Call response team. It seems they were growing more and more erratic and even seemingly going beyond their very programming itself. To the very point that sometime later after they made this discovery, the hard light program itself suddenly grew completely out of control and managed to breach through the safety protocols and locks put in place for the secured room and floor that houses it.
Within a short amount of time the programming was shifting and transforming into all sorts of strange scenarios and digital representative constructs of known media used to now harm the staff of the On Call Center. Several sections and floors were heavily damaged due to the cause of it including numerous injuries.
If not for the immediate response of the team consisting of On Callers SoulStar, Major Matrix, and newcomer Captain Nuclear then things could've easily have esculated further out of control and beyond just within the confines of the center itself. The team battled hard light representations of creatures and obstacles mostly based around popular coin op arcade games. They had managed to fight their way all the way down to the Simulation floor itself where the finally encountered this would be unseen adversary who awaited for their arrival. What they found however was more an amateurish type of assassin who went by the moniker "Playa H-8" who wore very video game inspired clothing and hardware on his person.
Despite the oddity of their opponent he did prove to be a foe that could hold his own displaying his control of hard light technology itself, which would explain how he was able to infiltrate the sim floor's programming in the first place. However in the end result the team of responders had the upper hand in both class and power as they defeated his constructs. Whilst in the middle of grilling him for answers as to who set him up to attack the center in such a way he did, the only information he managed to give them was that he was doing it for the will of U-Topia. And then moments later he used his own hardware to override itself and ultimately ended up killing him and reducing his body into messy goop.
It is highly suspect that this is all related once more to the known dictator of U-Topia, the Proper Lady, but again it is unknown if he was directly hired by her people or if he were acting more independently.
This is all still currently being investigated.
